Homeopathic medicine works by mimicking the symptoms of the sick person.
How can any one thing relieve so many diseases, maladies and symptoms? How, in fact, can any substance that has been delited, perhabs hundreds of times, help with anything at all?

Here's how: Homeopathic medicine works by mimicking the symptoms of the sick person and in that way, the body is encouraged to throw off the disease, because it thinks that it receiving more of what it already has. If you have a symptoms of a flu, it is because your body is already has reacting against something to try and help you be well. If you then give it something similar to what it already has, it will react even more strongly.

The action of a homeopathic remedy is similar to the action of old time original vaccinations, which were in fact based upon homeopathic principles. A little bit of cowpox, similar to, but not the same as, smallpox, was given to the person and the body used the information to build a defense against artificially-introduced disease that it thought it had, and in that way, the person became stronger. In a similar manner, when a patient has a cold or allergies with burning, red, watery eyes and a runny, acrid nasal discharge, similar to the kind you get when you slicing onions, then of course, the homeopathic remedy is Allium Cepa, derived from the red onion. Often in moments, the eyes stop burning, the nose stops running.

Since homeopathic remedies work by mimicking the symptoms of the illness, knowing exactly what is to be mimicked is the key to its success and the art of the Homeopathic Practitioner. This ability to arrive at the most important symptoms is a shared responsibility between the homeopath and the patient. However, you may not know exactly what you are filling or you may have gotten used to feeling poorly, having forgotten what it is like to feel good.

The experience of not knowing what you are feeling is in itself a symptom that can be addressed homeopathically. It is the job of the homeopath to create a rapport and the sort of atmosphere in which you feel comfortable enough to be guided to, the essential symptoms. A good homeopath will be alert to clues.
