i repeat

All symptoms of illness are the body's first attempt to heal itself. A homeopath respects this natural tendency, and attempts to work with it rather than against it. Homeopathy does not seek to suppress symptoms. Its goal is to recognize and remove the underlying cause of these symptoms. This is why a homeopath will work toward understanding the whole person — including their body, mind and emotional state — before prescribing a remedy.

So the symptoms don't go away, but the patient gets better. So someone with a migraine headache still has a throbbing pain in his head (we're not seeking to "suppress symptoms"), but because the "underlying cause" is gone, he should be grateful.

I'm starting to get it now.
