Definition: The term homeopathy is derived from two Greek words, homios (meaning similar) and pathos (meaning suffering). Homeopathy is a path of treatment that will mimic the symptom of the sufferer to reinforce the person's natural defenses to move forward toward restoring good health. Treatment is based on the administration of minute doses of a drug that in massive amounts produces symptoms in healthy individuals similar to those of the disease itself. The philosophy of homeopathy is the extreme opposite of allopathy.
