Homeopathy is a form of treatment which uses stimulation and regulation to gently correct everyday complaints. Homeopathic drugs give the body the impulse it needs to activate its natural healing abilities, helping restore it to health.
Treatment with homeopathy has few side effects yet is effective.
Often, selecting the proper medicine to give the body a gentle “push” is enough to treat common uncomplicated complaints.
Homeopathic treatments can be useful in self-treating many minor acute complaints. However, doctors can also use them to treat chronic illnesses.
Certified organic provenance
The vast majority of the raw plant material we use comes from Terra Medica, our certified organic facility for medicinal plants.
Since 1976, we have been raising some 600 different kinds of medicinal plants for our own use. We have always applied organic standards, i.e. no chemical fertilisers, insecticides or pesticides.
And Terra Medica is a European champion: nowhere else on the continent is a greater variety of medicinal plants being raised.
The focus: the principle of similars
Homoeopathic treatment is based on the principle of similars. The underlying philosophy is that the substance used to treat an ill person will trigger similar complaints in a healthy person. In other words, “like cures like.”
One famous example is onion (Allium cepa), which makes a healthy person’s nose run and their eyes burn and water. In homeopathic medicine, onion helps counteract these same symptoms when treating an allergy, for example.
DHU — a pioneer in quality
Not only is DHU the market leader in producing homeopathic medicines in Germany and many other countries; the company also has over 150 years of experience in homeopathy. Dr. Willmar Schwabe’s company "Homöopathische Centralofficin" in Leipzig began manufacturing homeopathic products from the time when it was founded in 1866. He was very mindful of ensuring that his homeopathic medicines maintained consistently high quality.
Schwabe’s work on standardising homeopathic manufacturing led to the publication of the first homeopathic pharmacopoeia in 1872, which to this day still serves as the cornerstone of homeopathic production in Germany.
Everything from a single source — from the seed to the finished product
Every step of the homeopathic drug manufacturing process is in the hands of a single source — from planting the seedlings at our controlled organic site Terra Medica all the way to packaging the finished product.
This approach guarantees the exceptional quality of our efficacious and well-tolerated medicines.
