SATTVA HOMEOPATHY: THE ALTERNATIVE WAY
Rediscover Your Own Healing Powers
WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
Homoeopathy is a system of medicine founded by the celebrated physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann of Germany. It is based on the principle that “like cures like”. In practice, this means that a medicine capable of producing certain effects when taken by a healthy human being is capable of curing any illness that displays similar effects.
LIKE CURES LIKE
For example, if a healthy person takes a dose of Arsenic, he will develop vomiting, diarrhoea of rice-water stools, a rapid pulse and prostration. His skin will become cold and his expression anxious. in smaller doses or when taken for a longer time, he will develop a running nose, heavy head, cough and bronchial catarrh. Even later there will be specific disturbances of skin and nerves. he will have burning all over which is relieved by warmth, frequent thirst for sips of water, fear of death, restlessness and a worsening of symptoms at noon and midnight.
According to the Homoeopathic law that ‘like cures like’, patients displaying such symptoms have been cured by Arsenic, irrespective of the name of the disease (food poisoning, cholera, colds, eczema, asthma etc.).
THE HEALER WITHIN
The practice of Homoeopathy convinces the homeopath to regard the body as more than a sum of its parts. We all have healing power within us. This healing power is a function of the life force itself. Hahnemann called it the vital force. Disease is a disturbance of this force. Of ten people who get wet in the rain, only one gets pneumonia. Most bacteria or virus can affect us only when our own healing power of resistance is low. By removing the bacteria (by antibiotics, etc.) we are doing nothing to correct this lack of resistance. Homoeopathic medicine aims to correct the disturbed vital force and thus enhances the power of the body to heal itself. It does not aim at removing the symptoms of the parts affected, but treats the cause and restores health. According to Homoeopathy, symptoms are a reflection of the disturbed vital force.
TREATING YOUR BODY AS A WHOLE
Another fundamental principle of Homoeopathy is that it treats the patient as a whole and as an individual. There is no medicine for any particular disease, but there is a medicine for the patient suffering from the disease. It is being increasingly acknowledged these days that the mind and body are inter linked. We now see the rapid rise of the holistic concept of disease with an emphasis on its psychosomatic aspect. Hahnemann recognized all this long ago, and stressed that bodily and mental symptoms are to be taken together to form the portrait of disease. The Homoeopathic Materia Medica is rich in mental symptoms and we especially use these in selecting the remedy.
The present problem of the patient is not usually an isolated occurrence. it is part of a sequence. The family history and the events through childhood are taken into account as homoeopathy treats not only the present symptoms, but the entire sequence, thereby preventing the progress of disease. Children under Homoeopathic treatment grow in to more healthy adults, they find relief from the scourge of bad inheritance as well.
At Sattva Homeopathy, we believe each person has the innate ability to heal.
