Question and Answer

Diagnosis in Homeopathy means identifying the homeopathic medicine required by the patient. This is achieved from the summary of his symptoms or from the gist of his total behaviour or his peculiarities. Therefore homeopathic doctors will not refer his patients as diabetic patient or asthma patient or arthritis patient. Instead they will be named connecting with medicine they are taking, like 'sulphur patient', 'pulsatilla patient', 'phosphorous patient' etc. Each medicine has its own unique personalities and hundreds of symptoms. May be few of the medicines can be briefed here.

You might know of some hardworking and diligent person, who is eager to win wealth and prestige ahead of the others. For silly things he gets angry (like, while buttoning the shirt or tying the shoe-lace fast and impatiently, or if something goes wrong, he shouts at his wife or bangs the door shut), shouts at his subordinates at office, gets irritated at them as they are not as fast as him, become more addicted to coffee, tea, smoking, drinking etc. When its time to sleep, he starts thinking of the problems at office, worries over them and by the time he falls asleep it will be past mid-night. Most of the diseases affected by these kind of people will exhibit symptoms specific to the features of the medicine known as 'Nux Vomica'. For these patients, whatever be the name of the disease, 'Nux Vomica' will fruitfully brings out the cure.

A young lady whom you know. A bit stout, shy, smiles & cries for trivial reasons, talkative, no leadership traits, fickle minded with all feminine qualities. But hot-tempered sometimes. Intolerant to heat, walking in the open air gives health and happiness to mind and body. Most uncomfortable in a closed room. Whatever be the disease she suffers from (skin diseases, irregular mensturation, impotency, diabetes, asthma), a medicine known as 'pulsatilla' can give magic results for her.

In 'Homeopathic Materia Medica' (The book describing the symptoms attributed to various medicines) the symptoms associated with more than thousand medicines are illustrated. Also are given, symptom similarities of the diseases now existing in the world and of those diseases to come in the future. The most significant feature of homeopathic science is that it decides the medicines based on the symptoms alone. But in allopathy, diagnosis is possible only after discovering the structural changes in blood and body cells by means of investigations. But in majority patients, subjective symptoms start to show out even before such changes occur. Since Homeopathy can eradicate the disease in that early stage itself, it is the 'better preventive medicine'.
Excerpts from the lecture given at Royal Society of Medicine by Sir John Weir M.D,the renowned homeopathic doctor and personal physician to the British Queen,around 50 years ago.

"The doubt in the minds of you doctors might be this: Is Homeopathy effective? Is it practical? To make you understand it to be certainly practical, I shall present before you a few examples from my case diary. "

(a) A military officer, bed ridden for almost a year due to trench fever. Though weak, he is frighteningly angry and aggressive. Everyday fever sets on at 8 in the morning. Pain in the body, hands, legs and joints, restlessness become severe at night. The only medicine for this combination of symptoms is 'chamomilla'. By taking in high potency single dose of medicine, he got cured quickly and returned to service.
(b) A lady around 30 who was sick of food poisoning was brought to the O.P.Section by her husband at 2AM. She was vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea the whole night through. Cold, shivering body, anxious looks, near to death. The symptom similarities of the medicine 'arsenic'. The high potency dosage for a minimum period gave her the quick healing. So you have seen how fast the action of homeopathic medicine is in the case of acute diseases. How much intense is the condition of disease, the effect of the medicine will be that faster.
(c) A man who was suffering from severe stomach-ache was brought by mid-night. He had a heavy supper with oysters and champagne. The facial expressions revealed his severe pain. Bent down forwards, clutching on stomach, unable to answer questions, he was moaning and groaning. Gave him 'colocynth'. In 3 minutes,taking a deep breath, he stretched his hands and legs and with great relief, he said, " I feel fine".

Any number of similar cases can be declared. Remember this, this is not just my experience. This is all due to Homeopathy.

On the common interest of the medical society, the number of people who criticize Homeopathy on pre-conceived notions are no less. Many doctors on their own will have set out to bring before the world the foolishness and ineffectiveness of Homeopathy. After experimenting by themselves, they found them to be wrong and thus became apostles and propagandists of Homeopathy. Truth is intense. It cannot be hidden all the time.

Some cases selected from the periodicals, magazines and books of Homeopathy are illustrated below:

As per neurology expert's research, Epilepsy formed after severe head injury is difficult to be cured (treated) completely.

Consider this case.
20 May 1909: A healthy looking girl of 18. For the past 6 months she has been suffering from epilepsy daily. Symptoms like biting teeth and tongue, foam from mouth, spasmodic contractions of hands and legs were visible. But still a definite reason is not known. Two and a half years earlier, she had a small accident, which injured her head. Allopathic doctors had said that only an operation could help her, even though partially. But her parents who had heard of the chances were ready for an experiment with Homeopathy before going for a surgery. After collecting all the necessary information and performing the required tests, she was prescribed 'Calcaria carb'. Though the disease accentuated for next few days, gradually it decreased in intensity and within a month was completely cured. During this 6 years (1909-1915), she wasn't attacked once by this disease.

Carbuncle on the back of neck
Though antibiotics can heal this painful disease, there still remain chances of the disease returning back. Look how Homeopathy works even for a disease affecting a small part of the body.

A 30-year old lady. Various medicines were rubbed on, but with no effect. The area is swollen and about to crack open. Bluish spots here and there. Intolerable pain. Burning sensation, like cutting with a knife. Disturbed stomach. Feels like vomiting. Blabbering during sleep. Eyes protruded, bitter tongue, bad-odoured exhaling air, slight temperature. Taut face. Begging for morphine to ease the pain. Tarantula Cubensis- 12x was given. In two days the coloured pus was made colourless. The swelling was soon healed. When I met her after few months,she said that the regular headaches she used to have hasn't occurred later. This case reveals how deep is the effect of Homeopathy.

Diabetes Mellitus
No explanation is needed because now a day it is a common disease. It does not lead to a sudden death but it can destroy the proper functioning of all major systems. Retinopathy, Nephropathy and Gangrene are the common complications. There are medicines available in Allopathy to reduce the count of sugar content in blood and the temporary symptoms. But it can't reduce the sudden change in the reactions. As a result, the patients are forced to lead a diet controlled life and under medication for the rest of his life.

July 2- 1909: 47 year old well-built man. Patient for 3 years. By now weight decreased by 35 pounds. Two years ago stomach problems and loose motion. After that, sleep lessened by half. Some nights were sleepless due to the stomachache. Profuse sweating even on doing small works. Pulse rate: 95-100 per minute. Under emotional stress, feels that the part above ears of the head is detached and is moving up & down. Hot conditions are intolerable. Frequent passage of urine during nights. Thirsty for cold water. Burning sensation of anus. After a few days of analysis, phosphorous CM was prescribed. After the intensification of the disease for the first few days, it was gradually reduced. In a month, the sugar content in urine disappeared. October 31-Phosphorous MM.
