Complex homeopathy is homeopathy that uses remedies that are mixtures of ingredients or that prescribes several remedies taken in combination. The remedies may vary in strength. In classical homeopathy, single remedies of a given potency are used.
Complex homeopathy selects remedies based mainly on the symptoms of the patient, rather than on a detailed personal interview. Symptoms such as producing mucus when one has a cold, vomiting or sweating when feverish, increased urination with a bladder infection, and diarrhea are taken as the body’s natural way to rid itself of whatever is harming it. Remedies are selected that will not suppress but rather encourage these natural processes of elimination.
