What cure is

What cure is

When people are being treated for any of their suffering(s), their commonest anticipation with end result is ‘complete cure’.
What is cure? People usually think of ‘cure’ as disappearance of symptoms or complaints. But one should be aware that disappearance of complaints may be because of a genuine cure or remission or palliation or suppression. Actually, ‘cure’ means the act of healing, to restore health from disease, to get rid of illness or removal of disease, to charge our soul with good health and comfort, to become healthy again, to preserve health permanently, etc
Dr Hahnemann, founder of Homeopathy, in his aphoristic ‘Organon of Medicine’, gives most importance to cure and placed it in first aphorism as

“The Physician’s high and only mission is to restore the sick to health, to cure, as it is termed”.
In the second aphorism, he explains how it should be attained.
“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, an easily comprehensible principle”.
From the time man deviated from Nature, he started getting diseases and kept doing research to combat disease as early as possible with new modes of treatments/new drugs. In search of cure, different modes of treatment have been evolved since then but finally man realised the worth of Nature and wanted to get back to Nature (after destroying and violating all limits?). He wishes to get natural treatment with herbal remedies.
Can one get cured only with medicines? No, certainly not, everyone should be aware that our body comes with inbuilt recovery mode with our immune (fighting) mechanism and further diseases/infective agents have their own lifespan. For example, common cold will make one to suffer for 5-7 days and typhoid will have it virulence for 14–21 days. The thing is that we need to support our body immune system for the recovery process with rest, proper care and diet to combat the disease (from the initial period itself).

In simple terms, ‘recovery’ comes naturally and ‘cure’ will be artificial with medicines. For recovery, Natural force will look after it to heal. For cure, one needs to take proper treatment/medicines with hygienic care.
Cure is not worthy if health is not restored permanently. For that permanent restoration of health, cure needs to be attained based on fixed principles. If one happened to take treatment with Homeopathy for warts or stones in kidney and if they properly complete the treatment, they can be free from all these ailments for life. This is cure.
The recovery process also sometimes prevents recurrence (from same disease/symptoms) and sometimes it may not. For example, measles, chicken pox and small pox infection – if one happens to get these infections in childhood, mostly they will become immune to these infections in the later part of life. In case of simple/superficial complaints, recurrences are common. For example, for simple cold and cough (acute bronchitis)/constipation/itching - if one happens to take Homeopathic/allopathic treatment and gets cured completely, the same symptoms can recur if the sufferer is susceptible to it and has a tendency to catch them. In that case, we need to take a constitutional approach. The same thing happens with natural recovery process also, i.e., even cold and cough goes away on its own with natural healing mechanism, but cold and cough can recur again and again. Here the sufferers are compelled to opt for treatment.

In general, for any complaint, if we do not provide proper care, then there arise complications and acute complaints can get transformed into chronic complaints. One should be aware that even with the advancement of science and different modes of treatment/medicines, no one can promise 100 per cent cure since still more than 40 per cent of diseases remain a mystery to researchers/doctors with respect to their causes and cure. With limited access to Nature’s mystery, the so-called doctors and medicines get honour from patients, their family and the public for the treatment.
Likewise, even though every patient and doctor aims for complete cure with treatment, results often vary, depending upon care, treatment, disease, individual, etc.
Response often varies because
  • Treatment plan/mode also vary depending upon the experience of the doctor, system of medicines and dosage of medicines – For example, for simple headache some reach for a pain balm, some for internal medication, some may go in for lifestyle modification and yet others with medicines and lifestyle modification. Sometimes some may require surgery. For a few, even though proper care and treatment is provided, some disease condition won’t respond at all and may get worse with time. So, depending upon the treatment and person, results differ.
  • Further, the way medicines act often varies from person to person - i.e., the same medicines will not have the same response in everyone, for some it can provide miraculous effect, for some others it may cause allergic reactions and for some, response may be poor. In some others, medicines won’t work at all.
  • Medicine selection and dosage varies from person to person and also the experience of doctors.
  • Likewise, for some, they will be free from complaints till they are on drugs; for some others, they may be free from complaints for some more time after stopping the medicines; and a few, who have taken proper medication and availed of proper care from the initial period, may get cured completely. Temporary restoration or partial restoration of health is nothing but remission or suppression or palliation of complaints. It is more common with chronic complaints than acute complaints.

In case of systemic disorders like hypertension or diabetes, one cannot claim cure since it may be hereditary, be influence by age, etc. Even though they claim normal life with normal reports, it cannot be considered as a cured case it only means the condition is under control or well-maintained. So, just an absence of symptoms or complaints or disease cannot be stated to be cure. Other than cure, the end result of treament may also be
  • Remission - temporary absence of complaint (common in chronic complaints – for example in case of sexually transmitted diseases, infection or ulcer can go off in a month’s time but it can recur virulently after six months or one year).
  • Suppression – Just masking the complaint for the time being (for example – taking painkillers for pain and antihistamines for allergy).
  • Palliation - reducing the intensity of the suffering (for example, taking steroids for auto immune disorders, chemotherapy for cancer and immunotherapy for AIDS).
In all these results, treatment or medicines won’t halt/delay the disease or won’t reverse progression of the disease to provide a cure. Here complaints/disease can recur in future with the same intensity or worse. Anyhow, these modes are very helpful in incurable diseases where one cannot expect cure but can expect comfort/temporary relief with some extension of life.
Finally, one should be aware that the goal of treatment is to prevent and relieve suffering and to improve quality of life. Following Dr Hahnemann’s, Similia Similibus Curantur (principle of Homeopathy which means ‘Let likes be treated by likes’), Dr Hering postulates ‘Law of Cure’ with repeated experimentation and observations - the cure process (direction of symptoms) should start and go in the following way to show complete cure:
  • From above downwards
  • From within outwards
  • From a more important organ to a less important one
  • In the reverse order of their coming
To judge the right direction of treatment/right track of cure, Law of Cure will be very useful.Following homeopathic principle and Law of Cure can add strength to Homeopathy treatment to reveal its superiority.

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.

Even with long time medications, Homeopathy medicines are completely safe and free from all sorts of side-effects and addiction. It can be safely used in infants, children, adolescents, adults, elderly people and even in pregnant women.


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.
