Homeopathy is a treatment modality where medications in reduced strength are prescribed.
It is based on the theory that illnesses can be cured using medications which, in high doses in healthy people, would produce symptoms indicative of these illnesses.
The substances used as medications include plant extracts, animal substances, minerals, metals, and chemical compositions. Although most conventional physicians view homeopathy with reservation, many patients are convinced.
Homeopathic doctors know that homeopathic products not only increase the vitality but with them, when used professionally, a recovery from many illnesses is possible. Homeopathy also has, usually, little risk for the patients.
