Homoeopathy: Milder Way to Treat a ‘Diseased’, not a ‘Disease’


Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, an allopath, is the father of Homoeopathy, one of the epoch making medical discoveries in the world. Actually it was a new system of attending to the disease or to be more exact the patient, or attending to the curable in the disease. This discovery is often is called “Hahnemannian art of healing”. He explained his principles in a book called “Organon of Medicine”. The main principles are:-
The aim of the homoeopath physician is to cure the patient rapidly, gently and personally. He must bear in mind that he is treating a “patient” not a “disease”. To achieve his aim, he must find out what is curable in the disease and what is curative in medicine. In a diseased fellow, the vital force in him is deranged and this derangement expresses itself by abnormal sensations and functions of the organism. These sensations are called disease’s symptoms. For the Homoeopath physician, the disease means the totally of its symptoms. He must need only to take away this totality of symptoms for the entire disease.
In a word, in Homoeopathy there is no disease name like cholera, typhoid, but the sum total of the symptoms of a disease, the name of the disease notwithstanding. The physician thus has to consider the patient with all the related symptoms, not a particular ‘disease’.images.jpg

Disease and Medicine: – It is medicine that possesses the capacity to produce alterations in a healthy man’s healthy health. If a medicine can’t alter a healthy man’s health or can not produce abnormality, it can not cure any diseased person. This power can be ascertained by its effects on healthy persons. The morbid symptoms that medicines produce in healthy persons are the symptoms the medicines can cure.
Thus the creative power of medicine depends on the symptoms they have which are similar to the ‘disease’. The principle of Homeopathy is “Similia Similibus Curentur”- similar cures similar.
Actions of medicine: – Each medicine has two types of actions – primary and secondary. The primary action takes place under the influence of every medicine and the secondary action or reaction is effected in the living organism. To illustrate this – when a healthy man takes a medicine, its primary action produces disease symptoms is the healthy man. When a diseased person having the similar symptoms takes the same medicine then the secondary action is affected by the diseased organism and it is this secondary action that leads to cure.

Chronic and Acute Diseases:- Diseases has been classified in two headings – 1) Acute and 2) chronic.
Diseases what have a tendency to finish their course quickly but always in a moderate time, are known as acute diseases. Chronic diseases have often imperceptible beginnings. They derange the living organism and gradually cause it to deviate from its healthy condition in such a way that automatic life energy, the vital force, opposes such diseases only at the commencement, and during their progress offers helpless and useless resistance. Then the organism helplessly suffers from them. The diseases go on increasing their morbid influence upon the organism, destroying it in the end.

Chronic Miasma: – There is some morbid force between the curative power of the medicine and the curable in the disease which do not allow the action of the medicine to run its full cause. This force is called Miasma. There are three such distinct forces: – 1) Syphilis 2) Sycosis and 3) Psora. (more…)
