Homeopathy is a system of medical therapeutics that is based on the law of similars; the law of similars is an idea put forth in the 4th century B.C. by Hippocrates, which states that disease states that are brought about by exposure to an excess of a substance would thereby be "cured" by giving an infinitesimal (minute) dose of that substance. Therefore, homeopathic treatment stimulates the body's natural healing processes using a preparation of natural substances called homeopathic remedies. E.G. Salt (sodium chloride) taken in excess may cause high blood pressure, if taken as homeopathic Natrum Muriaticum, would then be expected to normalize the blood pressure.
The homeopathic physician would take into consideration all of the symptoms and conditions in which the symptoms exist and prescribe a specific remedy to treat the symptom complex presented by the patient. It is a highly individualize method of patient care, and thus requires a highly trained physician to effectively use homeopathy. Dr. Bonnet has been a practicing homeopath since 1988 and attends homeopathic conferences to stay current on the latest developments in homeopathic thought.
