Homeopathy, part of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).

Homeopathy use unnoticeable doses of mother tinctures (TM), obtained from different medicinal herbs, animal products or minerals. The method was developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann, who worked in his youth for 2 years as the personal doctor and librarian of the baron Samuel von Bruckenthal in Sibiu
. After his come back to Dresden, Hahnemann wrote Organon of Medicine, a basic book of homeopathy, in which it seems that he was influenced by the ethnoiatry of Transylvania. But homeopathy has been known since the Antiquity, by the well-known Greek medicine, dominated by the famous physician Hippocrates. The name homeopathy derives from the Greek homoio = likely and pathos = pain.
In opposition to allopathy, homeopathy uses high or very high dilutions for the preparation of different remedies, without any adverse reactions, which are so specific for the synthetic medicines. With the help of homeopathy we can obtain good therapeutic results in a number of diseases in which allopathy did not have any results, and I would mention here firstly the psycho-somatic diseases and allergic diseases, very much spread nowadays. Homeopathy is based on a series of laws, such as: the law of semblance (Similia similibus curentur), which in the folk medicine can be translated with “diamond cut diamond” and the law of remedies potentiation.
The homeopathical remedies are prepared of fresh herbs, which after mincing are extracted with a mixture of distilled water and ethanol, in order to obtain the mother tincture (TM). These are then diluted and potentiated through the classical method described by Hahnemann or through the modern method of bioresonance. Thus different forms of potential pharmaceutical forms are being prepared, such as: solutions, granules, tablets, ointments, crèmes, aso , which are prescribed by the homeopathic physician and prepared by the pharmacist specialist in homeopathy. In this case it is a personalized homeopathic therapy, which is successfully used in a number of diseases of the : nervous system, skin, digestive system, respiratory system, urinary system, genital system (feminine and masculine), locomotive system, circulation system, aso. Very important are the results which we obtained with the help of homeopathy in a number of psychical manifestations such as : fear, phobias, depression, sleep disorder, irritability, stress, aso.
