An Introduction to Homeopathy
Modern homeopathic medicine is based on the rediscovery of an ancient principle, using like to treat like. Developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a late 18th century physician, this form of medicine stimulates the body’s innate healing capacity to bring about a “cure.”
In contrast, the double-blind, placebo-controlled study would require me to give each person the same remedy. This method completely flies in the face of how homeopathic remedies are prescribed. The measuring tool is not effective for the object or method. Imagine, for example, testing the pitch of a musical note using a ruler. The testing device simply is not appropriate to the phenomenon being measured.
