Homeopathic pills. Woman's hand holds a container of white homeopathic pills. The basic principle of homeopathy, founded by Hahnemann, is to cure symptoms of an illness by administering minute doses of substances responsible for the symptoms. Homeopathic remedies are prepared from plant, mineral, animal or other biological sources. Dosages are formulated through a series of dilutions. Homeopathy is subject to criticism. It is, however, gaining some acceptance in medical circles as it also requires the physician to treat the patient as a whole, rather than just the specific illness observed.
