If you want to go down this route, choose one of the 'laws' of homeopathy, explain it and explain why it is true.
Homeopathy is non-toxic system of medical science originated in Germany by Dr. Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) (the founder and father of homeopathy). He was M.D. in conventional medicine. He realised his own school of medicine (conventional) was not helping the patients and spent years researching on homeopathy. The term “homoeopathy” was coined in 1807.
The basic fundamental principles of Homeopathy are: -
1. Law of similars/Like cures like (1796):
Disease can be cured by a medicinal substance given in micro doses that produces similar symptoms in health people when given in large doses. http://www.jorhodeshomeopathy.co.uk/jo- ... -like.html
2. Law of minimum dose (1801)
: Since the homoeopathic medicines act at a dynamic level, only a minute quantity of the medicine is administered which is enough/sufficient to stimulate the dynamically deranged vital force/innate healing powers to bring about the necessary curative change in a patient, not more that that, that means no overdosing. Infinitesimally small dose of potentised medicine.
Potentising the medicine increases it collative medicinal powers through dynamisation (serial dilution and succussion/trituration) and avoids unwanted side-effects.
3. Law of simplex (1810)
: At any given time, only one remedy can be the exact similar to the presenting disease condition of the patient. So a single remedy (one remedy at a time) is given based upon their constitution/totality of the symptoms which includes physical, mental, and emotional aspects/symptoms. This results in individualization i.e. it may require different medicine for different people suffering from same disease
4. Hering law of direction of cure (1845)
: Cure progresses from above downwards, from within outwards, from more important organ to less important one, in reverse order of coming of the symptoms
Real (Homeopathic) medicine cures even when Conventional conventional Medicine (CAM) fails
