Samuel Hahnemann was a German physician in the 1800s; he established the system of therapeutics known as Homeopathy. Homeopathy is a natural sustainable form of medicine that aids acute and chronic ailments by providing individualized care that treats the patient's unique needs by analyzing his or her mental, emotional, and physical symptoms.
Homeopathy derives from the Greek word homeo (similar) pathos (suffering disease) based on the doctrine and law of similia similibus curentur or like cures like. It is when a natural substance; a substance in nature can create the same morbid effect on a healthy body, as in an ailed body.
In homeopathy and regarding health and the role of the vital force entails that all living things pose a force of energy that supports all biophysical and biochemical activity, and separates living and non-living matter. In Aphorism 19 of the Organon of Medicine, when a person falls ill, they will display symptoms as this is the (vital force) body’s normal response to attempting to regain health. For example, when a person has a cold or flu their body’s natural (vital force) response is to expel mucous get rid of bacteria/viruses, cough to help move infection out of the lungs, and will develop a fever as it's harder for bacteria and viruses to survive. Understanding the vital force and its ability to restore health will help to determine the appropriate medicine needed in supporting the vital force. If the vital force is suppressed it could create other symptoms as it tries to restore the body to health. To restore health to the body's organism it is ideal to work with the vital force as opposed to it.

Homeopathic products come in many forms such as pellets, oral droplets, syrups, creams, and ointments. These products are made up of substances that come from plants, minerals, or animals. These products are generally low-risk. Health Canada regulates homeopathic products as a type of natural health product.
