Many people don't really understand how homeopathy works and sadly this lack of understanding often leads to prejudice. Homeopathy has been used for over 200 years by millions of people all over the world.
Herbal remedies are also often confused with homeopathic remedies which are quite different. Herbal medicine consists of plants or plant extracts and homeopathy uses pills (called remedies) which are made from highly diluted natural substances such as minerals and plants. These dilutions have the ability to stimulate the body's own natural healing response.
