Creating Waves of Awareness
My Dear Dr. Sajjadakram, it is not just my opinion that these things are so. In Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine, he points out that the homeopathic system is comprised of the similar remedy, or similimum (aphorism 26 et seq.), prescribed on the totality of symptoms (aphorism 82 et seq.), and given in minimum dose (aphorism 242 et seq.)
In particular I would draw your attention to aphorism 148 in which he summarizes these findings.
He later goes on to note that homeopathy has discovered a way of preparing the remedies which is of the greatest value in providing a gentle and lasting cure (aphorism 269 et seq.) He does not say that the remedies must be prepared in this way in order to be homeopathic. He has already described what makes a remedy homeopathic. Now, he is merely telling us how to prepare the remedy for the patient's best benefit. I hope this answers your comment.
Here we are talking about what is the proper potency, and what makes remedies in whatever form homoeopathic, not about what other people do. We talk about what makes a remedy homoeopathic, and you come with so many stories that people do this and that,and that is allopathic, but you do not follow the method of single remedy which is equally allopathic. So first clean up your own house before you say another's house is dirty.
Maybe you don't understand what you are saying. You are simply a system builder and you don't like being called out for it. I do not spit venom. I tell the truth.
Maybe this "guru" should not invite me to his discussions and then complain about being pulled up for mixopathy. Like criticising the pharmacies with a long letter saying the pharmacies are dishonest. Claiming they throw away millions of litres of water, whereas they simply distill it. since that neutralises the remedy. Being sanctimonious does not save you.
I think the perfect tool to give it a strike with was the Bible. Probably King James version? Hahnemann's references to God are an interesting one with that too, but that is another story :)
He preferred the Bible - German Statenbibel - because it had thin, rice-paper pages and was flexible.
It has been very interesting and fruitful discussion as above. From the varying view points expressed above I have come to a conclusion that a mother tincture(MT) is also a homeopathic remedy provided it is given on the basis of totality of symptoms and depending upon the sensitivity and status or stage of suffering of a patient. But it should only be given for a reasonable length of period and if it fails to provide the desired relief, though it is still indicated, this remedy then should be given in suitable potencies. Indiscriminate and long term use of MTs has to be avoided. I personally believe that if the choice of remedy is correct it will work faster in low potencies rather than given in MT form. The use of MTs therefore should be avoided in the interest of faster relief. If a remedy works in MT form, it will also work in its low potency and faster it would be.
Potentisation incorporates dynamization in a drug. It increases its efficacy resulting in faster reaction.
I would request the members to voice their valued opinion on my observation.
It all depends on the case. If the MT is the similimum it works as fast as a potency. That similarity determines the speed of action, based on the speed of the disease. Like to like. I have cured with Chelidonium Q cancer of the liver, which did not react to any of the potencies.
Thanks Kaviraj for your feedback. Such valued feedbacks and mutual sharing of each other’s experiences provides a deeper understanding of homeopathy and bridges the gap between theory and practice.
