1. Relating to homeopathy.
2. Denoting an extremely small dose of a pharmacologic agent that theoretically mimics the symptoms produced by the condition being treated, such as might be used in homeopathy; more generally, a dose believed to be too small to produce the effect usually expected from that agent. A form of medicine alternative to allopathic, in which drugs antagonize the effects of the disease.
