Best way to get treated

Different modes of treatment

Different modes of treatment
Health is one’s normal condition where harmony of body, mind and environment are intact. Understanding health is the basis of all healthcare systems. Healthcare really means promotion of health and prevention of diseases. Disease is a deranged state of health or an ill-feeling (either in body or mind). Our body has in-built system for restoration or recovery in case of simple or acute diseases or injuries i.e., God designed our body with natural healing too. So, to re-discover health and happiness one needs to provide adequate care with proper rest and diet and wait with patience and cooperate with our body.
But in this hurried world, not having any patience and also to outweigh all risk factors, everyone approaches doctors with a lot of hope, expecting instant and miraculous cure.
Cure means revival of normal comfort feeling. Cure can be felt only by the patient or the sufferer. Unlike for acute and simple ailments, chronic complaints need medicines/medications to get relief or cure. If they are not properly treated, complaints usually tend to prolong or get complicated. So, different modes of treatments are evolved with time empirically or with different principles. Every imagination has been used and applied. Dr Samuel Hahnemann analysed all the available treatment modes in his period (pre- and post-Hippocratic) and categorised them with their principle of action:
Antipathy – means “opposite sufferings”. Dr Hahnemann also called this mode as palliative treatment. For example – using cold water sponge bath for fever and using purgatives for constipation. Even though it works immediately, with experience one can realise its short-lived action.
Isopathy – means “same sufferings”. Here things which are identical in kind will be applied. Also sometimes here, treatment will be opted with same contagious substances that produce it. For example – applying snow for frostbite and using scorpion sting as medicinal substance for its bite.
Allopathy – means “other sufferings”. In Allopathy, there won’t be any fixed law or relationship between drug, disease and treatment mode. It originated empirically over time with advancement of science, imagination and series of lab analysis. I.e. it evolves as the best for the period. Sometimes medicines are prescribed bearing opposite relationship, sometimes similar relationship and sometimes there won’t be any relationship at all between drug and diseases.
Since it could not support prescription of medicine with definite principles, the medicines could not sustain for a long time. They themselves will discard yesterday’s magical medicine as today’s poison. Further, dependency on drugs may develop in course of time and patients may have to live with it and its side-effects. In spite of all this, no one can deny its worth during emergency care. Their vaccines, insulin, hypertensive drugs, etc., are saving innumerable lives today and every day. Also their innovation in surgery to make patient comfort all the way, i.e., from simple cataract surgery to cardiac bypass surgery, has made them ‘Heroic Medicine’ or ‘Modern Medicine’.

means ‘similar sufferings’. Homeopathy is a rational science, based on definite principle i.e. law of similars – which means “let likes be treated with likes” - a scientific phenomenon where relation is found between drug symptoms (obtained by proving) and disease symptoms to obtain cure. Homoeopathy deals more with patients and their feelings than with the diseases or its symptoms. Homoeopathic medicines are very much refined and are given in minimal and minute doses, so there are no side-effects at all. Homeopathy treats the patient as a whole (i.e. mind and body) and makes one free of the disease condition and prevents recurrence. In addition to all this, Homoeopathy medicines are proved in human beings (not in animals).
Now speciality clinics are mushrooming and treating human beings in parts. But Homeopathy always has a personalised approach and works in a wholesome way. This will usually comfort patients and help them get cured. In total, Homeopathy is the fingerpost on the crossroads of healing which directs the way of Safest, Effective Permanent Cure.
From ancient days, medical systems have been of different types. They are:

  • Hippocratic period of medicine - which in course of time advanced in different ways to get named as conventional medicine/Western Medicine/Modern Medicine/Allopathy
  • Homeopathy
  • Chinese medicine
  • Acupuncture/Acupressure
  • Ayurveda or Indian medicine
  • Egyptian Medicine
  • Greek Medicine
  • Roman Medicine
  • Mesopotamian medicine
  • Arabic medicine
  • Unani (Greek and Arabic medicines)
  • Naturopathy
  • Herbalism
  • Tibetan medicine
  • Siddha or Tamil medicine
  • Chiropractic
  • Osteopathy
  • Anthroposophy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Spa or Balneotherapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Behaviour therapy
  • Physiotherapy
They treat the patients in different ways, through different approaches and with different principles to bring positive health. Each one has its own efficacy, advantages, disadvantages and limitations. Everyone should be aware that they have all evolved for the welfare of humanity.
The best system of the hour depends upon the crucial time availability, presentation of complaint, nature of disease, etc. Here one should consider cure/betterment as more important than the system or the doctor.

What is homeopathy ?

What is homeopathy ?
Homoeopathic medicines are very refined and are given in minimal and minute doses, so there are no side-effects. The system treats the patient as a whole i.e. mind and body, and makes one free of the disease condition, and prevents recurrence. Homoeopathic medicines can be used in all types of disease, at all ages, in all circumstances. By acting in a natural way it increases immunity. It also removes tendencies, allergies and thus helps mankind to live in a modern world that is highly polluted. It also reduces the impact of hereditary-familial diseases by raising the immunity level. Also, in some painful conditions like peptic ulcer, patients cannot take Allopathy painkillers since the ulcer will get aggravated. But in Homoeopathy we can treat in a better way the painful condition and peptic ulcer. Homoeopathy medicines act through nerve endings in the tongue – the doctor will merely ask the patient to place the medicine under the tongue and let it melt slowly – so they are no way related to the stomach or blood. So, even pregnant women can take these medicines safely.

Wonders of Homeopathy

Best Homeopathy TreatmentHomeopathy is gaining in acceptance the world over due to its nature of treatment. Homeopathy does wonders when applied scientifically. As Homeopathy works on certain principles, it never fails within its limitations. However, a Homeopath may fail in treating the patient when he cannot elicit the characteristic symptom of the patient to match with the drug symptoms for selecting similimum (apt drug in right dosage). Homeopathy usually believes in internal treatment rather than topical applications or external interventions (removal of the disease or its effects using surgery, acids, freezing, burning, banding, laser, radiation, cauterization, ointments, liniments, oils, etc.) since internal medicines can only throw/expel the disease. Internal Homeopathic medicines treat patient as a whole by supporting the body’s own process of healing (immune mechanism) without any side-effects.
