Creating Waves of Awareness
HOMOEOPATHY – HEALTH, SICKNESS AND MEDICINE (As I perceived)
Life is constituted by two diffent entities:
(1) Physical being i. e. organism or body, it is a physical being.
(2) The dynamic being also called the soul, atma, etc. Hahnemann named it ‘Vital force’, ‘Dynamis’ or Autocracy’. It is independent self generating energy and animates the organism or the body. But its presence can only be perceived through the living body.
Health – so long as the dynamic being remains in its natural state all the processes of life in the physical being continue to be absolute normal i. e. Health.. Dr. J. T. Kent described the health as “freedom of thought and action.” Hahnemann defined Health in ORGANON, Aphor. 9 in the following words:
“In the healthy condition of man, the spiritual vital force (autocracy), the dynamis that animates the material body (organism), rules with unbounded sway, and retains all the parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital operation, as regards both sensations and functions, so that our indwelling, reason-gifted mind can freely employ this living, healthy instrument for the higher purposes of our existence.”
Disease: The deviation of life processes is the disease. There are various energies in nature which are inimical to the life. When the spiritual life force is affected by some inimical energy the life processes become deviated. It is a scientific fact that any energy can be affected by another stronger energy. If the affecting energy is similar the affected energy will be enhanced and if the former is dissimilar, the later will become deviated. So, when the spiritual vital force is affected by some inimical energy it becomes deviated and starts relaying SOS with distressing symptoms and the person becomes sick feeling various sensations. In the beginning of this state no pathological etc. changes appear but the sick person starts feeling unusual sensations and feeling, changes appear in his behavior, mentality etc. i.e. whole personality. This change in toot: if interpreted correctly by the physician and remedied by proper remedy the vital force instantly gets rid of the trouble and again gets restored to its normal state.
Remedy (Medicine): In homoeopathic system the medicinal properties of a medicinal substance are elicited by proving the substance, unlike other systems, on healthy and sensitive persons cautiously to the extent till mental symptoms come up. They are not proved till pathological changes appear. The medicines are being proved on various people of both sexes and of different age groups so that the real nature of the medicine could be elicited. Through this method a certain group of symptoms of sickness are produced by each medicine individually. Thus the sickness producing capability of each medicinal substance is known, which is compiled in the homoeopathic Materia Medica.
Diagnosis: In homoeopathic system the physician does not diagnose the name of the disease, but he diagnoses the curative medicine instead. The physician collects the total symptoms of the patient of his sufferings with his sensations and feelings. Then he finds out a medicine from the homoeopathic Materia Medica having similar symptom group produced during healthy proving.
Dose: After diagnosing the medicine it is given singly in dynamic dose. The medicinal substance is diluted in a medico-mechanical method in some non-medicinal substance viz. sugar of milk (Lactose) or distilled water or (mainly) in high grade alcohol. Very small quantity of the highly diluted medicinal substance is administered to the patient orally or by olfaction. Actually it is the life force which is sick and the duty of the physician is to stimulate this dynamic energy so that it may become capable to overcome the effect of the inimical energy which had deviated from normal the life force and caused sick symptoms. As soon the vital force gets sufficiently stimulated it overcomes the hurdle and again attains its natural rhythm thus the natural life processes are again restored. In this way all the unusual sensations and feelings and even the pathological changes restored to their normal state. Thus the patient gets CURED permanently gently and rapidly.
Follow up: Sometimes the selected medicine improves the patient up to a certain stage and a new group of symptoms show up. This kind of change generally occurs in chronic cases where much drugging had been done. In such cases the whole case is reviewed again and a new indicated medicine is selected and prescribed accordingly.
During my practice of fifty years I found that homoeopathy is really a re-animating therapy provided the physician could use the properly indicated medicine according to the law of similia. The readers can watch documentary videos from my records on you tube by searching “Dr. S. K. Mamgain” and can read numerous case records from my practice on “www.homoeopathy-milddose.co”. The Aphorisms No. 2 and 3 prove true up to the hilt to the practitioner.
Aphor. 2: The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of the health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way, on easily comprehensible principles.
Aphor. 3: If the physician clearly perceives what is to be cured in diseases, that is to say, in every individual case of disease (knowledge of disease, indication), if he clearly perceives what is curative in medicines, that is to say, in each individual medicine (knowledge of medicinal powers), and if he knows how to adapt, according to clearly defined principles, what is curative in medicines to what he has discovered to be undoubtedly morbid in the patient, so that the recovery must ensue - to adapt it, as well in respect to the suitability of the medicine most appropriate according to its mode of action to the case before him (choice of the remedy, the medicine indicated), as also in respect to the exact mode of preparation and quantity of it required (proper dose), and the proper period for repeating the dose:-if, finally, he knows the obstacles to recovery in each case and is aware how to remove them, so that the restoration may be permanent : then he understands how to treat judiciously and rationally, and he is a true practitioner of the healing art.
Environmental effect: Moreover this system of therapy is absolutely environment friendly. As described above the dose of homoeopathic medicine is always infinitely small therefore to prepare a medicinal substance in the form it is administered (i.e. in dynamic form) as a medicine, unlike other systems of therapies, is needed in quite small quantity; therefore possibility of exploitation of the medicinal substances is negligible. Method of preparation of the medicines is such that there is no possibility of pollution also. Doses of medicines are being used in such a manner watchfully that there is no possibility of their side effects.
Research: The need for research in homoeopathy is to prove the less proved substances extensively similarly to prove the substances which have not yet been proved. When substance like salt, calcium carbonate, charcoal, silica, and various metals have become wonderful medicines after proving then various indigenous plants and other substances will not open new vistas for the homoeopathic fraternity?

The human body is a cover, a receptacle for the Atma. Elements like water and wind are intimately bound up with the body. Therefore, the Atma Principle, which is the core, is not cognised. People have lost awareness of this Principle, which is Truth. The Atma is in the body, but not of it. The Atma Principle, though active in the body, does not belong to the body. The ability of the eyes to see and the ears to hear are given by the Atma. The eyes and ears are sustained by the Omni-Consciousness, the Divine Principle. Your Soul (Divine Self) is the real ‘You’, the Will (Sankalpa). The elements (ether, wind, fire, water, and earth) that constitute the cosmos operate only as prompted by the supreme wisdom, which energizes them. The entire world of living beings - both fixed and moving are sustained by supreme wisdom. That supreme wisdom is Atma, the Brahman and the visible, objective world. Just as the clouds cover the sun, the mind covers the Atma from which it originated.
Man is the indestructible Atmic principle (Divine Soul). It is to realise and experience this Atmic principle, man has this body! In the process to realise the Supreme Lord here and now, man must take good care of him/herself.
Perhaps Homeopathy is a very good choice if there is a negative symptom in one's life.
Yes! you are right but theprocesses of life are governed by some energy, some immeterial force. So long that force or energy remains in its natural rythm all the processes of life continue to be in natural state and the person remains healthy in physic and in mind. And as soon the life force deviates from the its natural state the person starts feeling untoward sensations, i. e. sick. Homoeopathy when applied correctly re-establishes order in the life processes, i. e. health again.
