Homeopathic medicine's basic belief is that, that the body can cure all by it itself.

There are so many restrictions under the treatment of homeopathy. It's treatment is restricted to so many things like pickles, non - veg, oily food, spicy food, mouthwash, coffee etc. Consumption of antidotes is strictly restricted.
