Homeopathy (also spelled homoeopathy) from the Greek words homoios (similar) and pathos (suffering), is a therapy that strives to treat “like with like” (the etymological origin of the word homeopathy: ‘similar suffering’).
The term “homeopathy” was coined by the Saxon physician Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) and first appeared in print in 1807, although he had previously outlined his axiom of medical similars in a series of articles and monographs commencing in 1796.
Homeopathy is an alternative medicine that is particularly popular in Europe and India, although less so in the USA, where such therapies have been subject to tighter regulation. Stricter European regulations have also been implemented recently by the EDQM.
