Homeopathy is widely used around the world and is regaining popularity in the United States where it enjoyed popular and therapeutic success in the 1800s. Relying on systematic principles of health and disease first set forth by Samuel Hahnemann in 1810, it offers a powerful and inexpensive means of promoting self-care and of augmenting therapeutic options for the family physician. History, theory and practical considerations are reviewed.
