Is homeopathy the same as herbal medicine?

No. Herbalism is a system of medicine using plant extracts and herbs. Homeopathic remedies come from any kind of source, animal, vegetable, mineral or even electromagnetic (such as x-ray). Herbal medicine is used in material doses, while homeopathic remedies are highly diluted and succussed (vigorously shaken). Herbalism is based on traditions of medicines being used for particular illnesses; whereas homeopaths prescribe according to the closest similarity between the disease picture the substance has shown to produce in a healthy person, and the totality of patient's presenting symptoms. Homeopathy consists of fundamental principles (both theoretical and practical) that sets it definitively apart from all other 'alternative' or natural therapies such as herbalism, acupuncture, orthomolecular medicine, rieki etc.
