“A very famous
quotation is Homoeopathic doctor fails never fails Homoeopathy”
important question comes in the mind, why a homoeopathic doctor fails? There
are so many causes in account of these, a Homoeopathic doctor fails. First and
most important cause is.
1. Improper selection of medicine –
selection of the correct medicine in homoeopathic system is very difficult
task. Like other medical system, a homoeopath can not use mixture of two or more medicines;
he/she can not use homoeopathic medicine with medicines of other system like
Allopathic or Ayurvedic. Such type of practice not supported by Dr.
any doctor practicing in such way and able to produce relief for patient, that was only a luck, because two or more medicines never produce cure, yes but it can palliate the complaint
of patient. Patient in the hand of such physician never get cure
is the radical healing of sick, it can produce only when physician follow the guideline given by Dr. Hahnemann mentioned in the Organon of medicine.
Organon of medicine, many aphorism has been written by Dr. Hahnemann that guide us for the selection of medicine.
First Aphorism –
physician’s high and only mission is to restore the sick to health, to cure, as
it is termed”
Homoeopathic physician thinks that, this aphorism has been written only about mission
of physician, in which Dr. Hahnemann says, as a doctor your first and only duty
is to cure the sick. Now what is the exact meaning of sick, is not mentioned by
Dr. Hahnemann but Illuminated by Dr. Kent in the first chapter of his
philosophy. here I am not going to explain the exact meaning of sick or sickness, but here my
focus is only about, what is the hidden link in this aphorism given by Dr.
Hahnemann in the connection with Selection of medicine.
When I read this
section in repeated mode , my focus is suddenly directed toward the object of
Hahnemann and that was sick, When
we read first chapter of kent’s philosophy, here Dr. Kent says, It is not organs
of our body, not a part like hand legs, liver, kidney or any other part of
the body actually in trouble, it is a man himself suffering from diseases
Now if you
thinks a moment with the condition of peach mind, you can easily understand
that “The object of our case taking is man himself not his/her body part or
organ” so we have to collect symptoms that is in respect of man himself not
about her/his body part or organs.
If you want to
treat your patient constitutionally, this aphorism of Dr. Hahnemann is well
But if disease
is not of constitutional nature but has only local origin (Not dynamic in
nature) so you can treat a body part.
important hint regarding selection of medicine has been given by Hahnemann in the
aphorism No 5 that is
“ Useful to the physician in assisting him
to cure are the particulars of the most probable exciting causes, of the acute
diseases, as also the most significant points in the whole history of the
chronic disease, to enable him to discover its fundamental cause, which is
generally due to a chronic miasm. In these investigations, the ascertainable
physical constitution of the patient (especially when the disease is chronic)
his moral and intellectual character, his occupation, mode of living and habits
his social and domestic relations, his age, sexual function, etc. are to be
taken into consideration.”
This aphorism is fully related with case taking in acute as well as in chronic diseases. In
this aphorism Dr. Hahnemann talk about the criteria in acute and chronic
disease. According to Dr. Hahnemann during treatment of acute disease, you have
a need to know about
a. Most probable exciting cause - means
environmental factors which are enable to excite the complaint of patient, like
– Headache worse after exposure to sun rays, cough worse after eating rice,
related about modality of the disease is enough to cure an acute disease, but
if you are dealing with chronic diseases, you must have to investigate about
a. Fundamental cause – that was always
miasm, Psora, sycosis, or syphilis (in simple disease) or found conjointly in
treatment of chronic disease, the investigation of miasm should be done in
respect of Cause and effect – let me
explain what I exact means of cause and effect, please consider following
symptoms of syphilis miasm
1. Necrosis of mastoid process (Sil,
Aurum, Cap, Hep, Acid-nit, Lach, Acid-fl, Carbo-an)
2. Necrosis of shine bone (Spongia)
3. Necrosis of left lower jaw (Phos,)
4. Necrosis of nasal bone (Kali-bi,
Merc, Hep, )
In all these
example of necrosis of bone cause is same (Syphilis) but effect are different,
so investigation of fundamental cause does not mean which miasm is working
behind existing malady but it means which effect it actually has produced. The remedy
selection in chronic disease not depend only on miasm but also depend on
effect. The same concept is applied for two other maism Psora, and sycosis.
constitution - distorted physical constitution or mental makeup is nothing
but a imprint of Miasm, a healthy vital force is responsible for developing
fetus in the womb. a healthy mother gives birth of a healthy child but if
mother is infected with miasm naturally the imprint of the existing miasm will
be seen on the baby too.
c. Other investigation – regarding patient
like his/her sexual function, mode of living, also give valuble information for
selection of homoeopathic medicine.
3 goes to more deep in order to ascertain what is curable in the disease, that
“If the physician clearly perceives what is
to be cured in disease” here Dr. hahnemann clearly mentioned that the
object which is subject of cure, is not discoverable physically, not talk able,
but it is perceptible
So only a power
of perception can make an ordinary physician to an extraordinary one. In aphorism 153
Dr. Hahnemann give us some more indication in order to make our remedy
“ in order to
search a specific remedy, physician must pay to his attention on more
striking, singular, uncommon and peculiar sign and symptoms.
Collect all the
symptoms of patient and his organ, general as well as particular put into the
repertory and prescribe one that covers most of the symptoms. Dr. Hahnemann
did not teach us.
Such type of
prescription is far apart from the teaching of Hahnemann.
2. Not to give sufficient time to act medicine
– Many Homoeopathic physician change their medicine very suddenly, not allowed
to act medicine properly, this is also one of the most probable cause to fail a
homoeopathic physician. Even after proper selection of medicine, they disturbed
his case with his own hands. These are nervous homoeopath and change their
3. Improper selection of dose – even after
proper selection of medicine, a homoeopath is not able to select proper
potency, cure will not produce, because for cure, the disease force must be
similar to the medicine force in every aspect, in symptoms and strength. So the
correct potency selection is also necessary
In account of all these fact a homoeopath
fails to produce cure
