Homeopathy is an alternative medicine
In the 18th century, Samuel Hahnemann started the alternative medicine. A homeopathic treatment uses extreme dilutions of substances that evoke the same symptoms as the ailment that one wants to fight. This medicine is not supported by scientific evidence: the dilution makes almost every drug inactive. Homeopathy is counted as pseudo sciences. Homeopathy was born at the time that Hahnemann himself took Kina Bast, and in this way manifested the phenomena of malaria (while not suffering from malaria). The theory is based on the principle that a substance that can induce certain phenomena is also able to heal the same phenomena. Homeopathic treatment not only looks at the (direct) complaint, but to the whole person.
