Creating Waves of Awareness

How To Explain Complexity of A Homeopath Role To A Client:

For each client I explain in several different ways about homeopathy and the role of a homeopath. What comes to my mind at that moment I go with it….Finally I thought let me put that in to words so that it will be easy for me to provide a copy of this to each client instead of explaining each time and if they have any questions I will answer them accordingly. Below is what I cited as an example for my clients.
“I would like to share an interesting incident of one of my relative was given Rhus Tox for his arthritis. In the same family his mother also has same symptoms so she took Rhus Tox and it did not work.I was questioned why didn't Rhustox work for the mother?

In another instance I gave the same relative of mine Rhust Tox for his headache, then I was asked why are you giving me Rhus Tox for headache when you gave me that for my arthritis, how can you give the same medicine for different disease conditions?

The above two questions are valid and justified !

Job of an Allopath: Your questions are correct from the allopathic perspective of allopath. He prescribes a specific medicine for a specific disease which he gives to all his patients irrespective of their sex, age by altering the dosage if required.

Job of a Homeopath: He prescribes not for a specific disease but for an individual whose diseases are unique in its own way. He has to find a remedy that fits all the disease symptoms of a patient. E.g. arthritis, skin, mental symptoms, allergies, headaches etc. Which indeed is a tough job ! Just like we have one to many and many to many relationships in maths, here also a remedy can be given to numerous diseases for that particular patient if it matches symptoms with the unique symptoms of the remedy. So again out of 30 -40 arthritic remedies he chooses the most similar remedy for the patient. It is just like a puzzle in which we match all the pieces to make one. With respect to the above first instance it did not work for her mother though she had the same arthritic symptoms, because her modalities e.g. worse by motion and also her temperament is different e.g. irritable and easily gets angry, which needed another remedy i.e. Broyina.

Likewise in the second instance he was given Rhus tox for his headache because it matches with the symptoms of Rhust tox headache. Every remedy has its symptoms for all the parts of his body from head to foot, all diseases and acts on all organs.

The job is still not over because even if the remedy is correct, it will not act if the potency is not matched.

The practice of homoeopathy is thus not easy. Perhaps one factor that makes it difficult is that Homoeopathy is probably one of the very few scientific disciplines, which has a method of identification that begins with specifics, rather than going from the broad to the narrow. Each patient's state is to be identified into a remedy state. And this is done through symptoms, understanding patient sensations.

When trying to identify the remedy for a patient, very often homoeopaths will go by specifics only. We can see the humor in this if the same procedure were to be followed for others things. It would be something like this: We start with three features of a thing to be identified, say... black... big.... moving. One person says, "Oh, I know! It's an elephant!" A second one identifies it as a black cloud, while a third is sure that we are talking of a steam engine. It is therefore no wonder that when it comes to prescribing the homoeopathic remedy for a patient there will be as many suggestions as there are homoeopaths.
Normally, a scientific discipline should ask - is it a living or a non-living thing? If living, is it a plant or an animal? If animal, is it a mammal or a snake? etc. And then if it is a mammal the black and big and moving narrows our choice down to two or three. Then we can go on to asking more specific questions to differentiate further. Similarly, our task would be made much easier if we were able to follow a system rather than a random search throughout the Materia Medica - a jungle in which we can easily get lost without maps and signposts.

So a Homeopath wants to know all the unique features of that individual for a precise remedy selection.

I agree that " we need to educate our patients about homoeopathy". But it will take more time when we do it individually. We should distribute some form lets explaining Principles and and philosophy of Homoeopathy, when they are waiting in out clinics.

Thanks Dr.Zahir, I totally agree with you.

Nicely explained, every remedy has its symptoms for different parts of body which should be matched with the present symptoms of the patients to reach the similimum or to prescribe a remedy.
We also do the same by matching present metal state of the patient with the mental symptoms of the medicine written in the materia medica or repertory. Eventually we succeed to prescribe by selecting only mental rubrics.
Also according to Kent mental symptoms are of utmost importance.....that's why....it is the first chapter of repertory.
Like, in Dr Noor's patient the women was giving prominent mental symptoms instead of any physical. What will you do in those cases where patients talk like this........not ready to give any physical complaint........

Thank u very much to all for sharing your experiences...........it will help us to grow.........also to homoeopathy......

I totally agree Kavitha. We must educate the clients with our process and in this way they become an active participant. They appreciate so much this art and how it works. In addition, as they understand more and more, they can take their remedy as needed when they become aware of the underlying symptoms and how they all connect to the specific remedy. They will also, you will be pleased by this, call the professional homeopath when they have a doubt or question what they should do next!
