Psoriasis is a common, inflammatory disease of the skin. Its cause is unknown, but it is genetically determined. It is often familial, but does not appear to be inherited in any regular dominant, sex-linked or recessive way. The disease has been found to be of greater frequency in men than in women. It is less common in African and Asian groups.
Puberty in girls is the period of transition from childhood to adulthood. There are profound biological, morphological and psychological changes that lead to full maturity and eventually fertility. In a short time, the child takes on an adult like physique.
Constitutional homeopathic treatment given at puberty would thus go a long way in preventing disease and maintaining the physical and mental well being of the patient.
I used to listen to this popular Pink Floyd number as a child and I think it had a cult following. This anthem is still relevant in the present times. I have been teaching homeopathy for over 25 years and I sometimes feel that this number is a current favorite with the kids because of the reality it portrays.
Whether poison or food, homeopathy can make a substance very useful in the treatment of diseases……….. Common salt or sodium chloride is one such substance. A regular article of our diet, it is probably used only by homeopaths as a medicine.
I chanced upon this article in The Economist of September 3rd-9th 2011 which talks about the experiments performed on rodents and suggests that bacteria dwelling in the gut can affect the brain, and thereby influence an individual’s mood and behavior.
This idea is not new at all. Homeopaths have been aware of the effect of the bowel flora on the health for almost a hundred years. This was first highlighted by John Paterson in the early 1900s.
It is heartening to note that what was published by a homeopath in the early 20th century is being confirmed by modern day researchers.
Mrs. ABC, 35 years old, came to me complaining of extreme swings in her mood, introspection and suicidal thoughts…………
One can label a person as suffering from PMS if a group of symptoms recurs in the same fashion and is relieved with the appearance of the menses.
Constitutional treatment by a good and qualified homeopath will surely help in PMS.
The answer is an emphatic YES. Homeopathy can be used to treat animals. We have been treating some of our patients’ pets with homeopathy for the past 25 years…… It can treat not only simple derangements of health but even serious conditions of the lungs and the heart.
So the next time your pet is ill consider homeopathy. Remember, he is a part of your family and deserves to be treated well.
Antimicrobial resistance has often pushed back all the breakthroughs and technological advancement of modern medicine. The theme for this year’s World Health Day was the launch of a worldwide campaign to safeguard these medicines for future generations.
Homeopathy has this unique feature that there can never be a resistance to the drugs.
On this occasion of World Health Day, it is necessary to review what Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, has said about health:
“The physicians, high and only mission is to restore the sick to health, to cure, as it is termed.”
People often scoff at the fact that homeopathic medicines may be useful in treating various heart diseases. Homeopathy is useful in cardiac neurosis- esp. post infarction and post by-pass surgery, hypertension, chronic ischemic heart disease, heart diseases that are secondary to other systemic diseases and of course rejected cases. When the pathology is prominent and there are plenty of signs as well as symptoms pointing to an organic lesion, the homeopathic medicine will not be able to cure or reverse the disease process, but will help in preventing further progress and let the patient lead a more comfortable life.
