Dear gail, homeopathics do not function in the same manner as conventional medications/drugs.
Some homeopathics can be used for anti-inflammatory actions, but we think that these actions are taking place at a epigenetic level (homeopathic changes the way the gene expresses itself).

In brief: No

Homeopathic medicines ("remedies") are prescribed according to what the person is suffering -- symptoms or disturbances from wellness.
The remedy stimulates innate healing functions so the system becomes healthier and more balanced overall. Steroids for body building are used to pump up something in an abnormal way, and can lead to many problems. Definitely not an improvement in health.
