The word homeopathy derives from the Greek work “homoios” meaning similar and “pathos” meaning suffering. It is a method of treatment based on nature’s Law of Cure that states “Like cures Like”. The truth of this law was discovered by a German scientist, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1796. Homeopathic Remedies are prepared from natural substances to precise standards and work by stimulating the body’s own healing power. They are dynamic agents able to influence the body’s energy.
Homeopathy can offer long lasting, permanent benefits because it addresses disease at its roots. It is a therapy for the person rather than for the disease alone. It does not treat superficially by just driving away the symptoms but heals from within.
Homeopathy is unparalleled in its ability to act strongly and effectively without significant risks of side effects or unwanted harm. Unlike most systems of healing, homeopathic remedies are prepared in a certain fashion that makes them safe for all individuals. There is little concern for toxicity, overdose or drug interactions. They are one of the few medicines completely safe for everyone from small infants to the elderly.

The State of Maryland does not currently offer licensing for naturopathic doctors.
