Health is a state of mental, physical and social well-being. It is freedom from disease. When there is disturbance at any of the above levels – be it mental or physical, the person is said to be diseased, at dis-ease.
Homeopathy is a science which deals and effects all 3 levels of human being such that we function and live harmoniously with self and surrounding.
Disturbance brings about symptoms or complaints by the person-`my head is aching`.Group of these symptoms help to know what disease it is. Symptoms of high fever, cold, headache, bodyache, indicate VIRAL FEVER. But there are certain sensations and feelings which each patient experiences differently e.g. excessive sweat, no thirst, anxiety with fever etc. It is these sensations and feelings which help the doctor to differentiate between the many medicines that Homeopathy has for viral fever. In other words EACH PATIENT IS DIFFERENT though 2 patients complain of the same disease and so the medicines differ.
When we say Homeopathy helps MENTALLY what do we mean. Each human being experiences at some point of time one or more of these emotions-
anger, hate, love, envy, jealovsy, sadness, joy, pride, ego. Some emotions predominate in a person at a given time. e.g anger and hatred.
Each person expresses these differently. If you are angry–you may sulk and stop talking, weep and suppress your feeling, shout back or get violent.
Similarly if you have hatred towards another being. you may severe relations, take revenge and so on. These responses make each person different from the other. But the heightened reactions call for a remedy which will help that state. Homeopathy is very effective in children for temper tantrums, restlessness, hyperactivity, abnormal social behavior etc. Thus Homeopathy treats Autism,ADHD,Premenstrual tensions,Menopausal syndrome,etc.
Understanding feelings,sensations,responses,effect of stress on mind and body-helps us homeopaths to prescribe you a medicine that acts at all levels.
It helps you to be at peace with self and surrounding, cures your suffering and makes you function to your fullest capacity and capability. A good case-taking and your ability to speak freely about yourself helps us to become good homeopaths as the medicine selected is RIGHT.
In short, Homeopathy HELPS YOU TO BE IN HARMONY WITH YOURSELF AND WITH THE ENVIRONMENT by stimulating your BODY’S DEFENCE MECHANISM to increase immunity.
