How to make homeopathic remedies from your veggie garden

I assume now that you know what homeopathy is, if not I will explain. Homeopathy is an natural alternative medical practice. The medicines or remedies that are used are highly diluted. That is why they are extremely safe to use. People that use homeopathic remedies have faith that the medicine will cure their illness. They use medicines that produce the similar symptoms they have in a healthy person. Basically, they take medicines that have similar symptoms as their illness. This explains the principle of “like cures likes” that homeopathy was founded on. The principle of ” the minimum dose ” is also another essential principle that it was founded on. Now lets move on to how you can use your garden to create remedies.

First you are going to need a substance or a mixture of substances to create your remedies. I will list some and a good description of each. Also I will list how to grow some of them in your vegetable of fruit garden.
