A Classical homeopathic practitioner follows Samuel Hahnemann’s principles of homeopathy. He wrote the Organon of Medical Art which contain 291 aphorisms which are guidelines for practicing homeopathy. It is important to understand that not all holistic or alternative practitioners prescribe according to Hahnemann’s principles.
“Homeopathy is a safe, effective system of natural medicine used by millions of people worldwide for more than 200 years. Homeopathic medicines are prepared from natural sources, are used in extremely small amounts, and are recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. They are non-toxic and, when properly administered, can be safely used with infants, children, adults and animals.” National Center for Homeopathy
