Homeopathy is an ancient practice termed as “energy” medicine. It is believed that the body can heal itself if appropriate energy is given. Tinctures (drops of herbal concoctions) known as “remedies” are given based on the persons symptoms, personal traits, physical state, psychological state, and life history. The remedies are prepared starting with active ingredients that are diluted to the point where the finished product no longer contains any biologically “active ingredients”. The remedies are meant to probe the body to return to homeostasis by treating the mind, body and soul. In 2011, the Switzerland government provided a report on homeopathic medicine, which represents the most comprehensive evaluation of homeopathic medicine ever written. The report was published in book form in English (Bornhoft and Matthiessen, 2011). This report affirmed that homeopathic treatment is both effective and cost-effective and that homeopathic treatment should be reimbursed by Switzerland’s national health insurance program.
