  1.  First prize winner in article writing contest conducted by IHMA on April 10th, 2020 on RENAISSANCE 21ST CENTURY – Time to evolve and make the future better.  Read more: From a global perspective, science has advanced till moon marking our presence in space as well as tamed the ferocious lions on earth. However, the invisible microbes have apparently sitting high in the throne of the food chain succumbing to the lives of human beings. The renaissance has ensued in the souls of the medical world by captivating a u-turn in the 21st century by expecting the bodily power to cure the latest infectious disease, a phenomenon which was once rejected by the afflux of germ theory in the later years of 19th century. Sequel in the form of Non-communicable diseases excited by the infection is another leading cause of death which may also grope in dark for a cure in due course. The world is standing stunned with substantial economic burden without exploring the power of alternative medical systems like Homoeopathy and its power on influencing the vital force, a renaissance already happened in 1796 through Dr Hahnemann, an Allopathic Doctor cum Chemist.                              Homoeopathy is the safest way of treatment according to the law of nature – ‘Cure by Symptom Similarity’. Moreover, the ultra dilution followed by succession process makes any content permeable into the minute cells with the power to “Cure without after-sufferings”. Dr Hahnemann owes the credit of discovering the nature of chronic diseases and its cure through pure observation and experimentation on human beings for long twelve years till 1828. Presently, the research studies have proved leprosy as the oldest infectious disease on earth and also pointed out that various infections can lead to chronic diseases that are in par with Dr Hahnemann’s observations. The Homoeopathy when born roars loud its glory across globe tackling epidemics and chronic diseases. Though later it flowed only with turbulence and now it stands straight with documental proofs of efficacy just like how the Newtonian linear thinking has evolved into Einstein’s theories in other fields of science. Curiously enough the critics constantly seek scientific evidence through a microscope, which itself has evolved to discover nanoparticles only recently. Homoeopathic books on its fundamentals have written in the 1800s in the context of the then prevailed circumstances hence few statements remain contradictory for instance the bloodletting practice of the Allopathic system which has completely outdated and rejected by the Modern Allopathy on the grounds of biomedicine.  Exploratory literary review and clinical research studies reported the beneficial therapeutic effects, however; the mechanism of action remains less studied and stands controversial.  With due respect, we should make aware of other medical brotherhood that, all have witnessed even the surge of antibiotics which showed supremacy for decades is acting a retired life in epidemic crisis. Science has become a science by evolving hence there is a multitude of phenomena yet to unravel to become phenomenal, unfortunately, to mention even the abiogenesis. Uranium unearthed only when the man has invented drilling machines likewise an innovation of more laboratory equipment exclusively for the Homeopathic system is yet to be considered by the researchers.  By implementing innovative strategies in the higher end through furnishing the verified clinical documents in the single open portal to get accessed by the government bodies, stretching to the lower end by educating common people even in the remotest areas can ramify its glory across the globe.In quintessence, it is high time for the evolution of an integrated medical community as it lessens the gap of limitation of the entire medical system to shape a better future life. In the view of the catastrophic health expenditure, Homoeopathy offers great promise by virtue of having no remarkable side effects and demonstrable beneficial clinical effects and hence needs more attention of the government bodies to bring out its full potential. Instead of keeping parameters to teach a cat to fly, the world should view from a psychological point of post conservative thoughts by having an integrated system without being sceptical just to save millions of lives!

     

  2. Published a cured case of Paranoid Personality disorder in peer-reviewed Homoeopathic Journal ‘Heritage’ by B Jain in March issue 2020.

2019

  1. Published article “Homoeopathy and Mental Diseases” in the yearly Journal ‘Soham’ by Sakshama (a National organisation dedicated to the empowerment of specially-abled people). Read More-HOMEOPATHY & MENTAL DISEASESAccording to WHO ‘one in four people’ in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide. In the most developed country like USA 30 Million people are under Depression as per the current report. A study conducted by the World Health Organization in 2015 shows that one in five Indians may suffer from depression in their lifetime, equivalent to 200 million people. Due to the stigma associated with mental illness, a lack of awareness, and limited access to professional help, only 10-12% of these sufferers will seek help.Dr. Christian Fredrick Samuel Hahnemann (Founder of Homeopathy) in his Medical books ‘The Theory fo Chronic Diseases’ and ‘Organon of Medicine’ elaborately described the nature and its treatment of Chronic Diseases. He categorized diseases into distinct types and specifically narrated the way of treatment of Mental disorder from Aphorism 210 onwards in his book ‘Organon of Medicine’.MENTAL DISEASES

    Dr Hahnemann classified Chronic diseases fundamentally into two categories; disease having Venereal Origin and Psoric Origin. Most of the diseases what we are sighted is various forms are of Psoric origin.

    Yes! Mental diseases are Chronic Developed Diseases having Psoric in origin and it is one of the best examples for ‘one-sided diseases’.  The term “One-Sided” itself displays the meaning that most of the symptoms are obscured by ‘Symptoms of Disease, as a result, we get only fewer ‘Symptoms of Patient’. Because of this one-sided nature, it belongs to one of the difficult categories to show a complete cure. Mental diseases are not a sharply separated from all other diseases for this reason that, in other diseases also patient’s disposition is altered; (For example – A severe itching in the skin can evoke anger in a person) hence it has to be cured in the same way as all other diseases. Homoeopathy is a system where we are giving utmost importance to Mental Generals for treating many other diseases (For example Anger when ill in a previously mild natured patient or an angry person when ill becomes moody or sad) hence logically speaking we should be able to treat Mental disease more effectively.

    Homoeopathic Treatment is always based on the principle ‘Similia Similibus Curentur’ means let likes be cured by likes discovered in 1796 by Dr Hahnemann. Diseases can only be cured by a remedy which has the power to produce a similar morbid state while proving on healthy human beings.  Anti Psoric drug analogous to the disorder of mind and the physical symptom are selected on basis of Totality of symptom along with the regulated mode of life are the base in Homeopathic Prescription. In Homeopathy, the totality of abnormal sensations and functions are considered for a prescription. In which it includes mainly 1) Pathological Symptoms (Symptoms of the Disease + Symptoms of the Patient) 2) Physical Generals (Any change in Appetite, Thirst, Stool, Urine, Sleep and Sex) 3) Psychological traits (Habitual pattern of behaviour, thoughts, and emotions) and Disposition (Inherent qualities of mind and character). In short, a Holistic approach can be seen throughout the treatment. At the juncture of prescribing ‘symptoms of the patient’ are given more importance E.g.: In a case of Depression, Sadness is a ‘Symptom of Disease’ while Sadness with time modality makes it an individualized ‘Symptom of Patient’. In Psychiatric cases patients may not be in a state of explaining all these symptoms in a well-defined manner as in other diseases hence we must depend on relative’s narration, objective signs he is showing, and the symptoms shown in lucid intervals.

    Every person is Unique! Such characteristics of the patient when considered, better and effective treatment can be accomplished in the diseases like Depression, Anxiety, Stress-induced diseases, phobias, OCD, Autism, ADHD, Personality disorder, Insomnia, Alcohol dependency to name a few.

    Many mental and emotional diseases are nothing more than the transition of Physical symptoms into Mental Disease. E.g.  Suppuration of lungs can lead to melancholia and mania like a stage, Hypothyroidism can lead to mood disturbance and cognitive dysfunction, Psychosis. Brief psychotic disorders are short term non-recurring, a time-limited disorder involving abnormal mental function or loss of touch with reality. E.g. Postpartum psychosis and other stress-induced psychosis. It gets affected to those who are more susceptible to personality disorder in response to stress like the death of a child, spouse, relatives, friends, divorce, family and workplace conflict, a natural disaster to name a few. It affects typically to those who have not developed an effective adult mechanism to cope up with life. Identity formation happens by around the age of puberty and those who has not developed identity formation has more chances of conflicts in life where they have to struggle to overcome the threats faced in real life. When life becomes more demanding and difficult than they can tolerate, person lapse into a brief psychotic state. A very important point to be noted in BPD is that it shows early signs of many other diseases such as Schizophrenia or a defensive mechanism in response to stress in some individual with a personality disorder. In a normal course, a person gets back to the normal stage with support and comfort. If not leads to other diseases and requires medical care.

     

    In Homeopathy Dr. Hahneman has broadly classified Mental Diseases into 5 categories

    1) Mental disease which yet not developed and still somewhat doubtful whether it is aroused from corporeal or not or If it is not from faults of education, bad practices, superstition, ignorance. Treatment suggested is to consider this as, which has to be corrected with friendly exhortations, consolatory arguments, sensible advice, or can say psychological counselling.

    2) Real Mental malady depending on bodily diseases – Almost all mental and emotional disease are nothing more than the Physical diseases in which derangement of the mind and disposition peculiar to each of them is increased while Physical symptoms decrease.

    The course of Counseling alone can aggravate the condition and the melancholic may become dejected, querulous, reserved, and inconsolable. Here they require definite medical treatment.

    Along with medicine, we should show an appropriate Psychical behaviour towards patient such as –

    • Furious mania- oppose the calm fearless cool firm resolution.
    • Doleful querulous lamentation- mute display of sympathy in looks and gestures.
    • Senseless chattering- a silence not wholly inattentive.
    • Disgusting and disagreeable conduct- total inattention
    • Never offend the patient and even medicine can be given to the patient without his knowledge in his drink so that all compulsion is unnecessary.
    • Contradiction, eager explanations, rude corrections, using abusive language, fearful yielding, should be avoided.
    • Physician and keeper must pretend to believe them to be possessed of reason.
    • All external disturbances should be avoided.
    • Amusements, health tips, instruction, soothing effect through conversation or books cannot make them better without curing them first with medicine.

     

    3) In Insanity or Mania- It is an acute exacerbation of chronic mental diseases. It can be caused by fright, abuse of liquors to name a few and can be dealt with acute non-anti psoric drugs.

     

    4) Emotional disease making into corporeal disease -Continued anxiety, worry, vexation, wrong and frequent occurrence of great fear and fright can lead to physical health disruption. In fact, it is the exact opposite state of the first point we discussed. Ex: Somatoform Disorder, Conversion disorder etc.

    If recently diagnosed and not yet made great inroads to corporeal disease it can be controlled with a display of confidence, friendly exhortations, sensible advice, proper diet intake etc; and can lead to a healthy state of mind. Excellent Homeopathic drugs are available to overcome grief from the sudden loss of loved ones. If it has already long-term suffering, it can only be cured with Antipsoric Medicine.

    5Alternating Disease in Mental Disease –  a double or threefold alternating state for one person (Eg: Bipolar Disorder). When the new state makes its appearance, there is no perceptible trace of the former one or sometimes only slight traces of former when new one occurs. Sometimes alternating states are quite opposite nature as for instance Melancholy alternating with Insanity.

    Homoeopathy has immense scope in Psychiatric diseases and the prognosis depends on so many factors like age of the patient, duration of illness, concurrent diseases, frequency and intensity of violence, past and family history, the present state of health, his sensitivity, intensity and recurrence of stress he is passing through etc. Dr Hahnemann strongly advises Psychic diseases which require utmost attention should only be treated with hospital set up and to avoid tortures as well.

    Every single person will have a sorrowful story to share with, which they couldn’t handle and ultimately ended in psychic disease knowingly or unknowingly. If a person can accurately observe himself, he can point out even a slight symptomatic mental change from the beginning or at least BPD stage, we can ease their woes with the best tool from our armamentarium for a better cure. The more the fresh the case the more the chances of cure. There are obstacles to cure like a very strong family tendency; still, it can be managed according to the severity. Proper Diet, Exercises, spiritual enlightening also plays a major role in treatment. Homoeopathy is simple and safe without any side effects; which paves way for healthy functioning of body as well as mind to bring Homeostasis within the organism.

    Overall improvement in mental health will reduce conflicts in the family and then its impacts on society. Social life gets better ultimately the community at large is benefitted. When personality is enhanced the individual become more productive thereby enhancement in the national economy as well.

  1. Developmental disorders in Children and its general & Homeopathic Management

When a baby is born the first question asked by everyone is whether the baby looks like a father, mother or grandparents?? Here we can see the importance of surpassing of Gene to the newborn. Hence, we can perceive disorders also can pass on to the next generation. Let’s start the prevention from that moment itself to have a healthy baby. Influencing Persons are Father (during spermatogenesis period), during conception, Mother (during whole 9moths of the gestational period). Sex is determined by father & Hereditary factors such as Physiological and Psychological traits are fixed. Parents’ unfavourable conditions can stunt their development. Greater development is happening during this period than any other time in a life period. Attitude towards baby ie; even the thought of abortion influences baby. The negative ambience creates havoc in mother’s homeostasis. Hence it’s utmost important to have a happy family to have a happy child.

Hazards in babyhood and its management

Excessive crying- Can later act as a causative factor for gastrointestinal disturbances, regurgitation of food, night waking, general nervous tension, psychological insecurity, affects the relationship with parents which at last ends up affecting in development of personality. Can minimise the severity by having a certain change of response pattern in parents For e.g. While admitting kids in daycares, better to stay with them the initial 3 or 5 days; hence can lessen the feeling of sudden panic in midst of strangers.

Illness – If simple fever makes them take rest at home as abstinence from school is good for them as well as other kids. Initially treat them with home remedies like panikurkila water etc. If not controlled or severe, give them Homeopathic drugs which are absolutely free of side effects. Even recurrence can be prevented with Homeopathic Medicines. Many daycares kids are not getting washed in genital areas after micturition or flush toilet after each kid; telling excuses such as it is needed only after defecation or its difficult to do for every kid. In fact, one of the prime cause for fever is urinary tract infection. So careful hygiene in and around can prevent illness.

Accidents – Can be prevented by removing dangerous substances from reachable limit or by giving importance even to minute things such as keeping bed cover underarms while covering during sleeping as otherwise there is a chance of obstruction of the nose by falling bed cover over the nose when baby change position of hands while turning around in bed.

Malnutrition – can lead to kwashiorkor and marasmus. Malnutrition affects the brain as the first 2 years are considered to be the critical period in the growth of brain cells hence make sure baby is well nourished.

Obesity –  Advertisement babies indirectly instilled an Eager to have chubby babies; such misconception leads to overfeeding later pave the way to obese kids. And also Bottle-fed babies are overfed than breastfed babies. A number of fat cells of the body are established in early life for up to 3 years. If overfed they will have an obesity problem in rest years of life leading a proneness to lifestyle diseases obesity, heart disease, diabetes etc.

Physical habits – Sleeping, Eating, Defecation

Sleeping – Initially baby may require every 3-hour feeding so there won’t be continuous sleep as months pass on, the baby starts to sleep for long hours such as 10 to 15 hours. Try to avoid bedroom lamp as happy hormones such as melatonin and serotonin secrete in pitch darkness only. Instead of lamp give them a secure feeling of your presence.

 Eating –Tradition trailed by your forefathers or living according to the habitat in that particular area helps us to have healthy habits many times. Nowadays  all are giving exclusive milk in the first 6 months. Personally, I feel baby should get water along with breast milk till 6 months and continued also. Rationale: Does our thirst goes with drinking milk instead of water? 6 months can be considered as a waiting time for eruption of teeth and to get intestine capable of digesting adult food. Water can be digested within minutes hence please give your kid sometimes water too. Better not to change per changing theories in such basic needs. After 6 months, one can start weaning foods to babies such as raagi or kaya podi in Indian habitat. Combination of rice, dhal and ghee is the best as it contains the required amount of CHO, Protein and Fat. Need to introduce cows milk only after stopping breastfeed as protein formula differs in both and can cause a reaction if given simultaneously. Many times kids started skin complaints or respiratory complaints after Cows milk so it can be continued only to those who didn’t show a reaction. Almost the same protein gets from green dhal; substitute it with that.

Around 1 year can slowly start introducing what and all adults are having. Better to avoid junk foods. After one year doesn’t rely too much on breastfeed as they require solid food for their proper development.

 Elimination – It takes 4 years +/- 1 or 2 years to complete the control over it. According to a famous psychologist, Sigmund Freud Over domination by caretakers in this stage can lead to obsessive-compulsive disorder in adult life. Around 2 months the intestine is slowly got converting to adult-type hence there will be constipation.  Usually says motion gets passed in the third day naturally. However, Make sure gas is burped out after every feed otherwise baby will torment with pain.in such case, make it remove by some traditional method or can be the sort to Homeopathic medication which is very safe for kids.

Developmental delay – Developmental delay should be differentiated from a developmental disability such as  Downs syndrome.

Motor Development delay – It is a delay in achieving milestones such as closing fontanelles, rolling, sitting, standing, stepping, speech around the age defined for that. Again, all these depend on the genetic factor. Please don’t compare with other kid and also stop asking others why your kid not yet started walking talking? You are asking for the first time however they are fed of answering for many! Parents should observe their kids by themselves and also never to forget to compare how parents were in childhood. Still if feeling too much delay then only need to go for Psychological assessment or consult a doctor if necessary. Homoeopathy has good medicines to achieve milestones if any development delay.

Sometimes overpressure or negligence can also lead to a delay in motor development. Giving them proper oil massage during bath and giving them proper training such as keeping a favourite toy in the far distance can promote walking.

Speech delay –  normally first months cooing, babbling, gestures,

3rd month – pleasure, anger, fear can be comprehended.

1st year- one word

1.8 months- words must be reinforced along with gestures.

2 year – two words

2.6 year- simple command should be comprehended. Eg: give me a kitty

3 year – 3 words with grammar

Babies have not yet learned to control emotions. hence It’s easy for us to know by their facial expression.  Babies comprehend the meaning of what others say to them more readily than they can put to their own thoughts to words. So be careful about what you are saying. Half they learn from their IQ and rest half from how others stimulate or encourage baby.

Always keep time to talk with babies and play with babies. Allow them to talk instead of helping before they complete the sentence or finish the task. Avoid encouraging their talk as cute as it may lead to mispronunciation in adult life.

Emotional hazard

Unresolved emotions can lead to stress. Yes! They too have stress however Can easily resolve it by knowing what they required in each stage. For eg:

3 month- stops crying when picked up.

6 month – enjoy playing hence play with them

9 month – stiffens body when seeing strangers hence give them emotional support in midst of strangers

1 year-year more dependent – give them your time and attention

2year – shows temper tantrum but never entertain

3year – less egocentric so teach them the value of sharing.

4 year – more affection so give back your affection.

5 year – reasoning already achieved so reason out them clearly.

The emotional factor depends on inborn nature, environment, illness, stress. They too have emotions just like us; happiness, fear, jealousy, love, sadness, anger, excitement but don’t know to control as they are still in ‘ID” stage according to Famous Psychologist Sigmond Freud. Mostly we can solve problems by giving appreciation, love, affection, more bondage and positive ambience. If not getting corrected find out the root cause and correct it. Even if not changing consult a psychologist or a Homeopathic doctor if medicinal intervention needed.

Social hazard – Lack of opportunity and motivation from parents and environment can lead to introversion. Too many caretakers or changing caretakers also a factor. 6 week to 6 months are the time for attitude formation. 40 % of people who are shy are a carryover from babyhood. Shyness can later lead to loneliness self-consciousness, unfavourable social emotions, hostile, no good social $ personal development.

Play hazard – too much dependency on toys and television effects emotional hazards. Hence role model play, group play is very important.

Hazards in understanding-  It’s an easy and acceptable way to make get things done by giving rewards to them however it may lead to persistent food likes and dislikes. Chances are there they learn to associate sweet with reward ie toffee as a state of life. Solve it by changing rewards from toffee to toys and so on according to the situation.

Hazards in morality- If they discover they get more attention when they do things to annoy they keep on doing 3 d’s – 3 d’s are dawdling, defiance, disobedience. Never entertain and instead boost their good nature.

Relationship hazard– Any unfavourable ambience can affect them emotionally very badly even it can lead to behavioural disorders. e.g. parents fight.

Hazards in personality development – changed attitude of family members or loving persons can lead to emotional disturbances. Self-concept is a mirror image of what people in their lives think of them. As relationship deteriorates during 2 years, if not handled tactfully they can resort to as aggressive, resentful, withdrawn, etc. Identity formation finishes in pubertal age if parents could provide a positive ambience in all aspects can makes them a good individual in the society and can far more abolish fights in their marital life as they already achieved a mind to reason out and care in its pure form. Always reason out and clear whatever doubt they have.

By the age of 4 or babyhood ends,

Babies should be able to :

Learn to talk, walk with physical stability

Take solid food, chew properly

Motion control completed

Useful; vocabulary with correct pronunciation

Meaning of simple statement and command

Wear the dress with button

The simple concept of relatives and should be able to distinguish cartoon is not a reality.

Concept of right and wrong in relation with people outside. Make them understand never scare them.

The difficult task is learning to relate emotionally with parents and others. Babyish dependency is to meet their emotional needs and in childhood, he/she must learn to give and receive affection. More Outside bond than self – bond.

 

A good Homeopathy doctor hears all your woes and takes a detailed case. Homoeopathy can help in many phases which a kid finds it difficult to achieve and that too without any side effects.

2. Diabetic care through Homeopathy

Diabetic Care or Cure? Often the most controversial subject whirling around unanswered in the Medical field. Let us discuss what is Diabetes and how Homoeopathy can shed light on it so that we get to know later whether care or cure, which is the best term to suffix Diabetes.

what is Diabetes?

It is not a disease of Pancreas alone rather it is a syndrome characterized by the persistent increase of glucose in the blood. If untreated can, later on, lead to acute and chronic complications affecting the whole body and mind. Diabetes classified into  Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Gestational Diabetes, and others such as 1.5 Diabetes.  Disturbance in normal balance in the factors regulating Carbohydrate mechanism can lead to Diabetes. In the majority of cases, it is the inability to store sugar as glycogen hence it increases and absorbed in renal tubules in the kidney. After explaining theories over theories now it says, diabetes is not due to an insufficient amount of Insulin secreted by Islets of Langerhans but it is the antagonistic action of Pancreas, Pituitary, Thyroid, and Adrenal glands together that leads to Diabetic syndrome. An anti Insulin factor secretion is also to be considered. Hence we should have a system of medicine that acts on the whole organism so that it creates a homo stasis within the body. Homoeopathy is a  holistic system where it has an action on the whole organism rather than action only on a specific single organ.

Symptoms: Increased thirst, hunger, urination. Other symptoms are fatigue, numbness, and burning sensation, weight loss, slow healing wounds, dark skin patches, blurred vision according to the stage of the disease.

Causes:

It’s a derangement of sugar “HOMEOSTASIS” and also It’s an “INBORN ERROR” of sugar metabolism. The enzymatic defect that limits the functional capacity of Insulin and one or more missed the link in a chain of a complex mechanism, which converts sugar into energy and heat.

Foremost cause is ‘Hereditary’ then stress, ethnic differences, Indiscretions in diet, Pregnancy, Obesity, Pancreatic, Extra Pancreatic, Pituitary, Adrenal, Dopamine, GIT, Other medication-induced, etc. Let us discuss the cause which is important for patients as well as for Homoeopathic treatment.

  1. A) Hereditary (INBORN ERROR): 

It’s one of the basic causes of Diabetes and it is a genetic defect with the presence or absence of accessory factors such as age, various races and ethnic groups, error in diet, stress, etc. The Non-Diabetics may act as a carrier to the next generation; as we all know grandparent’s gene which is recessive in their children gets expressed in their grandchildren (Atavism). In every cell, there is a specific gene for every specific enzyme. When a gene is altered its corresponding enzyme gets altered. Hormones such as Insulin and glucagon increases or decreases with altered enzymatic reaction ie; a genetically defective gene causes an enzymatic malfunction which may lead to Diabetes.

Role of Homoeopathy :

Let’s read the above passage in reverse

altered Hormones <- altered Enzyme <- altered “Gene”.

Hence the basic problem is in the gene. Let’s discuss how a gene gets altered? There should be some strong powerful internal or external agents to cause a change in the gene. Hereditary disease means, there should be a single person who started the chain to begin with. For eg:  the then considered first couple ‘Adam and Hawwa’ should have started the chain. It is illogical; because if so, the entire descendants should get affected by that. So some other cause has changed the genetic pattern at some stage. Our genetic code gets fixed during time of conception and it gets influenced either; before (spermatogenesis period), during and after conception (gestational period).

These stages can get influenced

(a) Externally by exposing to powerful physical noxious agents Eg: spraying of Endosulphan causing genetic defects.

(b) Internally by mental stress. Eg: Here in the case of Diabetes, as it is more of a lifestyle disease, strong mental stress plays a major role – stress-induced Diabetes.

Gene selection is a random selection process so if creating a positive ambience ie; if you are able to live a stress-free life your descendants will remain healthy. In regard to you, even though if you have a genetic predisposition to get a familial disease, diseases won’t get affected if you can cope up with your stress more effectively. Homoeopathy takes cares of you at any stage of life. Hence Diabetes can be cared for or cured in this generation or even can prevent passing on the disease to the next generation with suitable Homoeopathic medicine. Various races and ethnic groups demonstrate differences in glucose metabolism, again supports the importance of the hereditary factors. These aspects of Diabetes are especially important for a multi-ethnic country such as India. “Heredity is the gun and environment is the trigger”.

  1. B) Stress

Stress results in the derangement of HOMEOSTASIS. Recurrent and persistent physical and mental stress in the family and at the workplace slowly leads to pancreatic exhaustion; as the above condition causes a sharp rise (spike) in blood glucose levels causing a demanding situation on the pancreas which results in pancreatic exhaustion in due course of time. The same happens in a person who has excessive consumption of carbohydrate or indiscriminate consumption of sugar and glucose to get instant energy.  Stress can be managed successfully and can create homeostasis by ourselves within our body, as nature has given us inborn power to heal ourselves. The stress which is not controlled properly can lead to mental and physical diseases including diabetes which require medical attention, hence a system that gives importance to the cause can give you better results that is Homoeopathy.

Homoeopathic therapeutics in Diabetes and it’s prognosis:

Diabetes can be dealt with beautifully through Homoeopathy by adopting different strategies according to the cause and particular symptoms experienced by the patient. Prognosis depends on so many factors like age of the patient, duration of the illness, concurrent diseases and its medication, past history of the patient and his family, the present state of health, his sensitivity, recent or past physical or mental stress and strain in the family and at his workplace. If more causes present, diabetes will be intensified so it becomes a complex disease that will be difficult to treat, however, it can care well. Homoeopathy has a lot of medicines for Diabetic patients selected purely on the totality of symptoms particular to the individual. Hence whether your condition can be suffixed with cared or cured depends on you and your Homoeopathic Doctor after thorough assessment only. Hence don’t let hope to go once you get diagnosed that you have diabetes. In a 5 and half year Indian Medical education system, Homeopathy is the only system where psychology is a subject in the first-year curriculum, as a psychological approach in the patient care goes a long way in mitigating many diseases including Diabetic syndrome. And also Diet and Exercise is an inseparable part of the treatment. Each Homoeopathic medicine is proved on Healthy human beings so that it is devoid of side effects and is safe to use as it is extracted from nature. Proper selection and administration of constitutional Homeopathic medicine after case taking, analysis, and repretorisation is very effective in Diabetes.

In a nutshell, we can say Diabetes is a slowly progressive disease where you don’t have to panic to do any emergency treatment when initially get diagnosed. A Homoeopathic doctor can better treat diabetes if you are going as a fresh case rather than who is already under other modes of medication. Less the duration and multi-system involvement more the chance of cure, and the condition which cannot be cured can be endured with the hope of minimizing complications and symptomatic relief. Be close with nature and create homeostasis within the body through Homeopathy!
