Just One Drop takes a no-holds-barred look at the most controversial form of medicine ever invented. Homeopathy treats the entire person, not just the disease. It’s a specific form of medicine that uses minute doses of a highly diluted substance that stimulates the body to cure itself. It is these tiny doses that causes the most controversy. Researchers believe there is a release of energy in water that becomes mysteriously dynamic. Others think it’s purely psychological or worse, a form of deception or quackery. Yet millions claim homeopathy cures even though there is not yet a satisfying scientific explanation. It remains a mystery.
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy isn’t some new age alternative medicine; it was developed over 200 years ago and still used all over the world. It’s a complete system of medicine focusing on the person rather than the disease. It’s based on the principle of “like cures like”. In other words, a substance that produces symptoms in a healthy person, similar to those experienced by someone sick, is capable of curing that disease. ‘Homeopathy’ means similar suffering.
