Homeopathy is based on the concept of using the energy of items in nature to allow your body to heal itself. In large doses, this energy of a substance will cause a symptom, while very small doses of that same substance will cure it. Most of the first known medical schools in the United States taught this concept and practice. This concept was later abandoned because of the length of time a physician must spend with a patient and learn about each patient in order to accurately diagnose them.
