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:
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.
