In brief: Homeopathic

"homeopathic" means "similar suffering" -- taking a medicine that is similar to the suffering caused by one's disease in order to stimulate your own healing system in the way needed for healing.
It is not just the medicine's manufacturing process, but also the way the medicine is prescribed -- through a thorough understanding of the person's experience of illness (including all symptoms).
