The Patient:

"The most important tool for treatment"

Before one develops any disease, the body undergoes many  changes and the individual begins feeling uneasiness in the body.  It is not uncommon to hear, "I don't know why, but I am not feeling well". At this very point, the "development" of the disease can be curbed through the use of Homeopathy, without waiting for the disease to develop completely. There is no need for the diagnostic tests on end products of disease such as pus, tumors and ulcers in order to administer Homeopathic treatment.

After all the tests, let us say,  an ulcer is diagnosed. Some individuals with ulcer, enjoy hot drinks and others  cold liquids. Some may have sinusitis along with the ulcer, whereas others may have Asthma. In this case, the body is clearly demonstrating its individuality and its unique nature. How can the same  medicine treats all persons suffering from an Ulcer if each person's body is of different nature and manifests different symptoms? (The disease diagnosis is identical but the signs and symptoms are different.)

Dr. Peter Duesberg, ph.D., world renowned virologist, published a paper in Biotechnology (1993) in which he listed all the HIV-free AIDS cases that he could find in the literature. He came up with 4,621 persons suffering from AIDS who didn't have any trace of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) in their blood. Officially, the person who tests HIV positive will be diagnosed as having AIDS, and the person who tests negative will be given the diagnosis of ICL (Idiopathic CD4 lymphocytopenia) a new term coined after these findings. Both patients will demonstrate the same identical symptoms, same disease, same mortality rate, and in the same risk groups, yet one will be treated with expensive and deadly antiviral drugs, while the other will not be. (The disease diagnosis is different but the signs and symptoms are same.)

Homeopathy considers signs and symptoms, not the disease diagnosis, most important for the treatment. It is an established and accepted fact that impaired mental function results from nutritional deficiency. Altered brain chemistry can result in mental/emotional disturbances and behavioral disorders such as hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorder, anxiety, depression, eating disorders (anorexia and bulimia), drug and alcohol addiction, autism and violence. This clearly indicates that the body and the mind are interconnected.

In spite of  having good nutritional food, supplements and vitamins, some people suffer from nutritional deficiency because their bodies fail to absorb the nutrients and the vitamins ingested. Ideally, we should make the body utilize the available nutrients in food instead of taking large amounts of supplements.

The following items are taken into consideration in Homeopathy as chronic conditions with the aim to selecting the single remedy for the person to bring physical and mental health.

  • Mental condition (anxiety, irritability, impatient, greed etc...)

  • Behavior (quarrelsome, complaining etc...)

  • Emotions (anger, tearful etc...)

  • Physical symptoms

  • Sensations (pain, burning sensation, sensations of tight bandage around the abdomen etc...)

  • Modalities (aggravation of joint pains by walking, better by applying pressure etc...)

  • Likes and dislikes (of food etc...)

  • Sleep (dreams, disturbances while sleeping, refreshing etc...)

  • Menstrual cycle (frequency, duration, associate complaints etc...)

  • Previous history (of illness as it shows the nature )

  • Family history (for hereditary)

  • Pathology (boils, warts, cysts, piles etc...)

To treat the patients suffering from acute conditions (fever, cough, cold, headache etc...), homeopaths consider only the signs and symptoms.
