Homeopathy (Greek: omoios equal, pathos suffering) was developed in 1790 by the physician Samuel Hahnemann. He followed the principle of curing „like with like“. This means treating diseases in low doses with remedies that cause the same diseases in higher doses.

  1. Principle: „Like heals like“.
  2. Principle: Dilution Theory

Samuel Hahnemann believed that the smallest amount of medicine was enough. He labelled dilutions with the letter D (= diluere: to dissolve, to make a solution). A dilution of D 10 means 1 cubic centimetre to 10 billion cubic centimetres. Homeopaths know dilutions up to D 1000, sometimes even up to D 5000.

Physicists say that at a dilution of D 23 there is not a single molecule of the original substance in the mixture. Dilutions of D 1000 mean a power with a thousand zeros. In simple mathematics, a quadrillion has 24 zeros, a centillion 600 zeros. Numbers with a thousand zeros only exist in astronomy or perhaps nuclear physics.

  1. Principle: exponentiation or dynamics

Both terms have the same meaning. Potentia and potestas mean power in Latin. The Greek word dynamis means the same. The essence of homeopathy is charging with cosmic power. The basic homeopathic substances are charged with forces from the universe through vibration, shaking or rubbing. These are the actual healing factors. Cosmic forces are the general gateway for all magical processes. Homeopathy is thus at least related to magical healing methods.

Hahnemann is a younger contemporary of Mesmer. The basic attitude of both is the same. Mesmer explained that people could recharge themselves with the power of the earth’s magnetic field. To do this, you should place your bed exactly in the north-south direction. Then you can recharge yourself with new energy as you sleep at night. However, it should not be the geographical north-south direction, but the magnetic north-south direction. – Hahnemann, on the other hand, does not want to use the power of the earth’s magnetic field, but the cosmic power of the stars.

In both cases, we are dealing with medial processes that do not remain without consequences for the patient. (Source: Christian Counselling and Occultism, Dr. Kurt E. Koch)
