San Francisco Homœopathy, the ‘energy medicine,’ is a branch of medical science based on the principle that disease can be cured by strengthening the body’s defence mechanism with substances selected for their energy-giving properties. In homœopathy, derived from the words ‘homœo’ and ‘pathos,’ meaning ‘similar suffering,’ a cure is selected which, in its crude form, would produce in a healthy body the same Symptoms found in a sick person suffering from the specific disease. But this crude substance, selected from herbs, minerals, or chemicals, is diluted and purified beyond the point of harm to its quintessential State of energy. In contrast to traditional (allopathic) medicine, by which Symptoms are treated with toxic drugs which weaken the body, homœopathic medicine aims to change the body’s energy levels which lie at the root of disease.

Founded in the nineteenth Century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, for whom Philadelphia Hahnemann Hospital is named, the practice of homœopathy has, over the last ten years, experienced a resurgence of interest, as more and more enlightened doctors and patients discover the powers of natural curative energies.
