Simple examples of healing by similarity: Allium cepa, the red onion, causes intense itching and watering of the eyes and nose and attacks of sneezing; it is frequently indicated for the treatment of head colds and hay fever. Coffee causes insomnia and mental hyperactivity; used as a homeopathic potency it relaxes the mind and permits natural sleep.
As perceived by Hippocrates, the symptoms and signs of disease are understood to represent the effort of the body to re-establish homeostasis and bring about a cure. They reveal the picture of an incomplete healing process, which must not be suppressed, but assisted to its completion by a remedy capable of producing a similar picture. In this way the inherent, curative power of the body is stimulated. For example, Arsenic, which causes severe vomiting and diarrhea, becomes an ideal remedy for many cases of gastro-enteritis.
In the selection of a remedy, the homeopath regards each patient as a unique individual. The remedy is selected on the basis, not only of the clinical diagnosis, but also, and especially, on those aspects and attributes which reveal the patient’s uniqueness – the life experience, personality, values, beliefs, habits and emotions. Disease affects the entire patient in body, mind, emotions and soul, and the remedy must be selected on holistic principles and administered in quantum form to be able to address all these levels of existence and prove curative.
In these days of increasing chronic disease, sinister viral infections, resistant organisms, super bugs and a host of incurable conditions, a system of healing that is non-toxic and capable of stimulating the body to heal itself, is more essential than ever before. Homeopathy is such a system!

What my patients say:
I have begun to release many of the emotions I felt a prisoner to, and am changing my thought patterns I have begun to see light at the end of the tunnel. I am not so tired, oversensitive, I’ve lost some weight and have way more energy. My hair has begun to grow back and I feel like I have a new lease on life. I know I still have a way to go, but I am committed to this treatment for the long haul. I cannot wait to see where I will be in a year from now. I am so grateful to Dr de Pontes.
Goals of the Homeopathic Approach
The Homeopathic Treatment
The goal of the homeopathic treatment is to encourage the body to return to a natural state of balance and health. Like the missing pieces of a puzzle, homeopathic medicines help “fill-in” the gaps in the body to stimulate a person’s own healing potential and energies. When this occurs, the person will have access to the body’s natural strength and wisdom, so that more conventional medicines and chemical-based substances may not be needed.
Is homeopathy merely psychological?
If you think you must “believe in” homeopathy for it to work, you need to know that it is not a placebo effect. Here are some powerful examples: Infants: Homeopathic remedies and treatments are successfully used by parents for common infant ailments such as colic, teething pain and some infections. Animals: There are many veterinarians using homeopathic medicines to treat domestic pets such as cats, dogs and birds, as well as barnyard animals like goats, horses and cows. Is it possible to have a placebo effect with animals?
Millions of people across the world use and rely on homeopathic remedies. Today there are a rapidly growing number of conventional medical doctors using homeopathic medicines, including:
