In brief: Alternative Medicine

Homeopathy is an alternative to standard medical treatments; and the mainstays of homeopathic treatments are usually tinctures and/or supplements (minute doses that would cause a disease normally) that aim to 'nudge' the body back into a state of balance/health.
If the practitioner is "skilled" there may be benefit; although there have been no formal studies into the discipline that i know of.

This description is not unique to homeopathy; it is more consistent with naturopathic approach.... Homeopathic doctors are medically trained physicians who prefer to approach the patient with homeopathic philosophy and homeopathic medicines , which are called remedies...

In brief: Homeopathy

Homeopathy is the art and science of healing by safe, gentle, and naturalmethods.
The person treats the whole person and not just the symptoms the remedies tend to be natural and not from drug companies. You may call the national center for homeopathy to get more information.877-624-0613.

In brief: Homeopathic doctor

A homeopathic doctor is first of all a physician, who has also studied and practices homeopathy -- the system of medicine developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in Germany >200 years ago.
In some states (AZ, NV) "homeopathic doctor" includes modalities besides homeopathy: acupuncture, nutrition, chelation, etc. These may have healing intent, but aren't homeopathy. http://homeopathyusa.org/faq.html.
