About Homeopathy

  • What is Homeopathy ?

Homeopathy is a therapeutic art of cure based on nature’s fundamental laws brought into practice to heal the sick patients by its holistic touch. It is the most gentle and harmless way of curing the disease permanently.

  • Who is the founder of Homeopathy ?

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who was Allopathic M.D. physician by profession and a researcher in medicine is the founder of Homeopathy.

  • What is the basic law of nature used in Homeopathy ?

A weaker dynamic force is permanently extinguished by a similar dynamic force, if the later is stronger than the former.

  • What are Homeopathic Medicines ?

Homeopathic Medicines are nothing but different dynamic forces used to treat dynamic derangement (disease) in a dynamic living organism.

  • How Homeopathic Medicines work on disease ?

If concept of disease is dynamic, then in order to correct dynamic derangement, medicines should also be dynamic in action. In short, Homeopathic medicines dynamically and holistically work on living organisms in a most harmless way without leaving any side effects.

  • How Homeopathy helps in the battle against resistant bacteria and viruses?

As Homeopathy works in a harmless and holistic way, it brings the dynamic force to normalcy by dynamic Homeopathic medicines. Two things are achieved by this. First, the little creatures (bacteria and viruses) leave the body without doing any harm. And second, as the equilibrium of the vital force is restored, the person regains the immunity for not getting affected by the microorganisms in future. It is the complete cure, so is called as the Holistic line of treatment.

  • What are the other laws in nature used in Homeopathy ?

1 Action and reaction are equal and opposite. 2 The flux of life travels from within outwards, from above downwards, from more important organs to less important organs. 3 From tiny embryo different individuals are born, from within outwards. No two individuals are alike in the world. 4 The symptoms go in the reverse order of it’s commence. 5 The quantity of drug required is in inverse ratio to its similarity. In short, more the similarity of the drug to the disease, lesser the quantity of drug required. 6 The quantity of force required to make any changes in nature is the least possible, if it is similimum to the nature. The decisive amount is always a minimal or infinitesimal. 7 Function creates and develops the organ. 8 Laws of elasticity – within the dynamic reversible limits the stress is proportional to strain. The dynamic disease force which affects and deviates the dynamic vital force is eliminated by a dynamic medicinal force only to bring the vital force to normalcy, if it is within the reversible dynamic limit. 9 Laws of resonance – when two progressive dynamic forces having the same properties of (amplitude, speed, and period) are traveling in the same direction in a vital entity, if superimposed each other and the stronger entity resonates and expels the later entity, but all this is within reversible dynamic limit.

  • What is the concept of disease according to Homeopathy ?

A disease is nothing but a dynamic noxious agent which affects and deviates a dynamic vital force. It makes its appearance by producing its characteristic symptoms on the organism.

  • How was Homeopathy found by Dr. Hahnemann?

While translating Cullen’s Materia Medica into English, he found that the herbal juice of Cinchona bark was used to cure Malaria and is capable of producing similar symptoms of that of Malaria, if taken by a healthy human being. That is, the medicine which cures the disease is capable of producing the same disease, if taken by healthy human being. Hahnemann started proving the drug Cinchona bark on his own body by taking its regular doses and surprisingly he found that the statement in Cullen’s Materia Medica is correct, as he found that all the symptoms of malaria were produced in him. When he stopped the drug and the symptoms disappeared and when he repeated the drug, the symptoms appeared. So, the year 1790 was probably the year in which the Therapeutic Law of cure was discovered and probably a new era for Homeopathy appeared on horizon. The same drug in minute doses could make the sick person well provided the symptoms were similar to the disease. Finally in the year 1796, essay on Homeopathic Philosophy was published which is considered as the birth year for Homeopathy.

  • What is the role of antibiotics in treatment of bacterial or viral diseases?

Antibiotics help to eliminate or kill the bacteria in the body. It gives the temporary relief by controlling infection. However, the tendency in patients to attract microorganisms remains the same. So, the person who gets a temporary relief from infection is vulnerable to subsequent attacks from the same organisms, but this time with a greater intensity from time to time. Why this happens? This happens because microorganisms produce resistance to antibiotics. For example, the lethal power of Penicillin in 1960 was around 97%, has come down to around 43% in recent years. So, multiple antibiotics system is used to get rid off microorganisms. In many viral diseases antibiotics are not very effective. Newer and stronger antibiotics are manufactured every day to fight with resistant bacteria. It’s a constant battle of newer, stronger antibiotics against the evolution of bacteria which are becoming more resistant day by day.

  • How Homeopathic medicines work on the body?

As Homeopathic medicines are nothing but different dynamic forces and don’t have any chemical existence, it works on the body in a dynamic way. By keeping Homeopathic pills under the tongue, nerve endings of the mouth are stimulated. The stimulus is carried to the brain and from brain the curative force of Homeopathy operates on the organ or location in the body where the dynamic derangement of disease exists. Just like electricity passing through wire cannot be seen but proves its existence by producing desired effects, Homeopathy also works in somewhat similar way.

  • What is the magic of minimum dose?

The quantity of drug required is in inverse ratio to its similarity. More the similarity, lesser the quantity of medicine required. Homeopathic medicines are selected on symptom similarity. If selected medicine is similimum to diseased vital force, the quantity of medicine required is always a minimum and infinitesimal. In short, Homeopathic medicines work qualitatively not quantitatively.

  • What is drug proving in Homeopathy?

The drug proving in Homeopathy is to ascertain the knowledge that the drug’s capacity to produce its own disturbance in the form of symptoms when given to the healthy human body. When any drug is given to healthy human being in a potentised form, it produces functional changes by disturbing the balance of vital force temporarily. It produces its own characteristic symptoms which persist on the human body as long as it is implemented during the time of drug proving.

  • What is Homeopathy Materia Medica?

It is the systematic record of the drugs proven on the healthy normal bodies in the form of symptoms. When any potentised drug is administered to the healthy human body, it produces its characteristic symptoms and these symptoms are recorded systematically to represent the drug picture of that particular drug.

All the diseases related to mind are termed as dynamic derangement of vital force and mind. They don’t have any pathological findings and require the medicines which can correct the same ailment dynamically. Homeopathy is one of most effective treatments in such conditions.
