Homeopathy, also known as homeopathic medicine, is an alternative medical system that was developed in Germany more than 200 years ago. Samuel Hahnemann published his discussions and observations of a healing system he called the law of similars in Organon of the Medical Art (1810). Hans Graham, a homeopathic physician, arrived in the United States in 1825; Constance Hering followed in 1844. Together they founded the American Institute of Homeopathy (AIH), the oldest nationwide medical organization still active in the United States.
