Creating Waves of Awareness
Sir, Very good question. Constitution can be used as an eliminating rubric.....
Pl. see the blog------- http://www.homeopathyworldcommunity.com/profiles/blogs/constitution...
to get the detailed information.
I have gone through your article. It is exceptionally good and valuable. Homeopaths can use constitional rubrics with confidence since these rubrics containes a large number of remedies.
I think they can be helpful for selection of a curative remedy though in every case we cannot prefer over other important symptoms.
Particularly in one sided diseases they can be helpful.
Constitution in other words can be equated to disposition. Today I was once again reading the book titled ‘Frequent Encounters – Introverts and Extroverts’ by Dr. Prafull Vi...
Some excerpts from the book:
‘The disposition is a genetic trait that individualized a person. The disposition is Mental, General and as well as Physical’
Under Mental Disposition he has listed:
Introverted…subdivided into Introverted –timid, Introverted-Morose, Introverted-Haughty, Introverted-Sober and graceful, Introverted-contented, Introverted-indifferent, Introverted-Sad.
Under General Disposition:
Under Physical Dispositon:
He goes not to quote Aphorism 210 to 215 and footnote 121 and 122 to bring out the importance of disposition.
In chronic cases like Arteriosclerosis, Diabetes, Hypertension, Tumours, Fibroids, Relaxation of tissues causing Hernia, Prolapses, Distortion of bones, Leukaemias and other grave diseases like Auto-immune Systemic Lupus Erythematosis, Rheumatoid arthritis, to arrive at a right similimum:
Homoeopaths select their medicines according the simile law = the disease-symptom-picture forms the basis for the selection of the remedy according symptom similitude so that their prescriptions become homoeopathic.
Allopaths decide on medicines on other grounds, such as constitutions, test results etc.
So asked the question, if constitutional hallmarks can be used as eliminating factors can be answered with YES, if I am a allopath and NO, if I am an homoeopath.
So-- the choice is yours.
however, one choice is excluded: claiming to be a homeopath and selecting remedies on allopathic grounds.
By your deeds you will reveal your true colours.
CONSTITUTION is not disease and therefore constitutional hallmarks are not disease symptoms.
CONSTITUTION cannot be equated with DISPOSITION. They are two different things, even though certain constitutions seem to predispose certain diseases, the disposition to attract a certain disease can exist independently.
See for example acute childhood diseases, --
Obesity if it occurs alongside other disease symptoms can form part of the disease-symptom-picture, if it is not due to an over eating habit.
