Effectiveness of Homeopathy in Diabetes Management
- 11 Months ago
Homeopathy is an alternative therapy based on the theory that "like cures like" and was developed in the late eighteenth century by a German doctor named Samuel Hahnemann. Hahnemann believed that if a large amount of a particular drug or substance caused symptoms of a disease, a smaller dose might reduce the symptoms by enhancing the body's natural response to illness. Homeopathic medicines contain a single active ingredient that supposedly induces the symptoms to be cured, but this ingredient is substantially diluted.
Homeopathy remains controversial, and the studies performed on it have been inconclusive. Since homeopathic drugs are so diluted, health experts suggest that they are probably safe to take-as long as people don't use them in place of necessary medical care.
