HOMEOPATHY
Homeopathy is a system of Internal Medicine or Medicinal Therapeutics based on the principle "Similia Similibus Curanter" i.e., let likes cure by likes . Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who is a famous chemist, great physician discovered Homeopathy in the year 1790 in Germany. Homeopathy treats the sick individual, it is therefore a speciality. Inspite of trend towards group practice, group thinking, and even group made of life has to seen all about us , today. We have yet to be convinced that the man is greater than the mass and that as long as intelligent thinking. People realize and prize their individuality. Therefore Homeopathy offers a special inducement to the man who can teach people to think and act as individuals, and to demand medical treatment as whole, not just him individual parts. So Homeopathy system considers and discovering what drugs can do by way of preventing health mentally. Physically of healthy human beings and then applying them for relief of first such condition in the side. Dr. Hahnemann after his MD Degree he was translating Meteria Medica Written by Prof. Cullen of London University on Previan bark, attributing its success in the treatment of Malaria to its bitterness. Hahnemann was so dissatisfied with his explanation that he did something ever extraordinary. He started taking the juice of Cincona Bark 4 draws twice daily for few days . He observed that his feets and fingers 1st become cold., trembling, and prostation. All the symptoms which are ordinary characteristics & intermittent fever, thus he discontinued it and was back in health. He began to realize it is only by their power to make sick that drugs can cure diseases and that Medicine can only cure such Morbid conditions as it can produce when tested on healthy persons. After few years of this experiment in 1790 - Hahnemann discovered this Homeopathy System. The same idea was also explained by Hippocrates, and again by Dr. Para Celsus.

Homeopathy, "a science of Medical treatment has a philosophy of its own therapeutics" are based on certain principles 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Law of Similars. Law of Simplex. Doctrine of drug Proving. Theory of Chronic diseases. Theory of Vital force and drug dynamisation.

According to Hahnemann disease is the deviation from normal state of health, which is manifested by producing certain signs and symptoms, which are the outer reflection of the internally deranged vital force and constitution of the man. Further diseases are caused by Exiting, Maintaining, Fundamental and Causes Occatinalis. Dr. Hahnemann is the 1st physician who described the diseases in to. 1. 2. 3. 4. Acute disease. Chronic disease. Surgical disease. Miasmatic diseases a. b. c. d. e. Psoric miasms Psycotic miasms Tubercular miasms Syphillitic miasms Mixed miasms

The Five Elements and the Three Doshas


The power of the five elements The Tridosha Theory

The power of the five elements

Siddha medicine holds that these elements combine in various levels to form the various aspects of man. The combinations are indicated in the table below. Elements Earth Earth Water Fire Air Space Bones Saliva Lying down Water Urine Fire Sweat Sleep Air Nerves Blood Fear Space Hair Semen Coitus

Muscles Skin

Hunger Thirst

Walking Running Climbing Jumping Fear Shyness Desire

Avarice Hatred

The Tridosha Theory


Air and Space together form Vatham Fire is present as Pitham Earth and Water form Kapham

If these three components are present in the right proportion, a person is said to be physically healthy. But a fine balance is difficult to achieve and illness results. This forms the basis of the tridosha theory.

Vadham
What is the seat of Vadham? The seat of Vadham is below the naval. (Urinary bladder, pelvis, umbilical chord, thigh, bone, skin, nerve endings, musculature, joints, hair roots.) What are the functions that Vadham regulates? Stimulation, respiration, thinking, sensory functions, co-ordination of the seven physical constituents, reflex actions. What happens when Vadha increases? This results in wasting away of the body, a black hue, tremors, distended abdomen, constipation, weakness, insomnia, and lack of inspiration. What happens when Vadham decreases? This leads to body pain, feeble voice, low functioning of the brain and brief loss of consciousness. What is the temperament of the person who has a Vadham constitution? Such a person tends to have excessive appetite, low physical ability, excessive love for rich food and a dislike of cold foodstuff. He or she has a low sex drive and is indecisive. He is belligerent, likes sports and music. He does not sleep well and dreams of mountain forests or space.

Pitha

It regulates body temperature, colour of the skin, vision, sweat, and digestion. What happens when Pitha increases? Thirst and appetite increase, there is burning sensation, more sweat and less sleep. There is a yellow hue about the eyes, the skin and faeces. What happens when Pitha decreases? The reactions are similar to an increase in Kapha - No appetite, a fall in temperature, and paleness.

What is the temperament of a person with a predominant Pitha constitution? Such a person is normally disciplined, but is unable to resist hunger. He is prone to thirst, anger, and fear. He likes sweet, astringent, bitter and cold food. He is emotional, likes perfumes and cosmetics, talks a lot, has a flair for knowledge and he loves others. He dreams that he is amidst flowering trees, lightning, fire or is surrounded by bright light.

Excess salivation, excess sleep, heaviness, cough, diminished activity, loss of appetite and dyspnoea. What are the characteristics of a person with a Kapha constitution? He is said to have a sattvic frame of mind. He does not usually crave for food. He likes bitter, pungent, and hot food. He can control appetite, stress, fear, and heat.
