Homeopathy: The point of homeopathy is to restore the sick to health in the most rapid, gentle, and permanent way possible. The intent is to remove the illness completely -- providing relief from symptoms harmlessly, and with comprehensible principles. This is done by perceiving the patient's problem accurately, and prescribing a single medicine that matches the symptoms and catalyzes healing.
