What describes the alternative medicine modality of homeopathy

A non-toxic system of western medical science originated in Germany by Dr. Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann. It is built on twin principles:

That treatments for ailments can be done via using very small quantities of substances which (when used in normal amounts) produce similar effects as to the symptoms currently being experienced by the patient. This is called “Like for Like”.
That dilution of these substances in water or alcohol (paired with a sharp striking of the solution after creation) is the best method of treatment, with the more extreme dilutions “concentrating” the effects, improving the results. This is called “succussion”
