According to the western medical establishment, homeopathy is both “unscientifi c” and “implausible”. A short overview of its history and the methods it uses, however, easily reveals that homeopathy is a true science, fully grounded on the scientifi c method and on principles, such as, among
others, the Arndt-Schultz law, hormesis, and epitaxy, whose plausibility has been clearly and definitely demonstrated in a number of scientifi c publications and reports. Through a review of the scientifi c literature, an explanation of the basic principles of homeopathy is proposed based on arguments and evidence of mainstream science to demonstrate that, in spite of the claims of conventional medicine, homeopathy is both scientifi c and plausible and that there is no reasonable justifi cation for its rejection by the western medical establishment. Hopefully, this hurdle will be overcome by opening academic institutions to homeopathy to enlarge the horizons of medical practice, recover the value of the human relationship with the patient, and through all this, offer
the sick a real alternative and the concrete perspective of an improved quality of life.
