How does homeopathy work?

The philosophy of homeopathy tells us that the symptoms of a disease are the guideposts to let us know if there is something wrong deep within and in need of correction. It focuses on the whole person rather than just treating symptoms or 'disease labels'. Homeopathy aims to treat the root cause of a problem, not just mask the symptoms. 
Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’. It treats illness or disease by the administration of minute doses of a remedy that would produce symptoms similar to those of the disease in healthy people. For example, when you chop onions, you have watery eyes and a runny nose, and you may also sneeze or cough. All of it happens due to exposure to the tuber’s active substances. The homeopathic remedy, Allium Cepa, made from red onion, can help you overcome a cold or allergy attack in which you may have similar symptoms – watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing or throat irritation.
Homeopathic medicine works by stimulating the body's own curative powers. It strengthens the immune system. Once the immune system is strong and starts functioning effectively, many ailments get cured naturally

 

Is it true that homeopathic medicines are only placebos (sugar pills) or psychological?

The ‘placebo effect’ can be described as a positive change seen after a medical treatment, which is solely caused by the patient’s psychological response to the treatment. After several clinical trials conducted to prove efficacy of homeopathic medicine, researchers have confirmed the healthy, healing benefits of homeopathy that went far beyond what could be explained purely by the placebo effect. Homeopathy acts in children, animals and also on plants. It shows effective results in infants too, even in conditions like abdominal colic. This would not have been possible if homeopathic remedies were placebos. 
Additionally, with countless cured cases and satisfied patients, it is difficult to believe that homeopathy would have been so popular and successful in around 180 countries across the world for over 200 years with just a placebo effect.

 

Are there homeopathic doctors with particular speciality who only treat you for particular conditions like in conventional medicine?

In the true sense, a homeopath is a multi-specialist.
