• MALARIAL PAROXYSMS • ULCERATIVE COLITIS • ASTHMATIC PAROXYSMS

CONSTITUTIONAL REMEDY REQUIRED (GENETIC CONSTITUTIONAL SIMILIMUM )
27-4-08 SAHYA 7

ACUTE EXACERBATIONS OF CHRONIC DISEASES
• DOES NOT WARRANT AN ACUTE REMEDY • ACUTE FLOW CHART SHOULD NOT BE USED • IF USED a) temporary amelioration  b) followed by aggravation  c) might lead to suppression
27-4-08 SAHYA 8

Acute treatment
• Misunderstood by majority • Under the guise of acute treatment a lot of liberties are taken • Any medicine unrelated to the constitution is selected on the basis of just one or two symptoms
27-4-08 SAHYA 9

Any remedy which gets indicated in an acute stage is bound to be in mathematical relation with the Genetic Constitutional Similimum

CLASSIFICATION OF

DISEASES
BY DR. HAHNEMANN
27-4-08 SAHYA 11

It is very important for a Homoeopathic Physician to thoroughly understand the Classification of Diseases by Dr. Hahnemann and to identify the disease condition presented by his patient before he attempts to cure him.
27-4-08 SAHYA 12

DISEASE
INDISPOSITION NATURAL DISEASES (DYNAMIC DISEASES)

ACUTE

INDISPOSITION
(DR. HAHNEMANN)

One or more trivial symptoms. Observed only a short time Not a fully developed disease that requires serious medical aid. Slight alteration in diet or/and regimen will dispel.

INDISPOSITION ?
(Reflections by Dr. C.J.Varghese)

 They also involve sensitivity, susceptibility,intolerance etc.. Eg: Taking something against your liking in a party.  Same causation affects different individuals differently. Eg: Taking something in excess which you like more.  They are all acute exacerbations of Chronic diseases. Eg: Gastric complaints like Diarrhoea, vomiting, colic etc or Headaches, Chest pains etc. likely to recur.  Every symptom is an attempt of the body to defend itself.
27-4-08 SAHYA  True indispositions are rare. 15

ACUTE DISEASES
Rapid morbid process of abnormally deranged Vital Force· Tendency to finish quickly· Always in a moderate time· Period of prodrome, progress, recovery or death· Acute miasm come violently· May cause death· Comes like a storm, stays for a period, and goes like a storm Recovers or dies with or without medicines. 27-4-08 SAHYA 17
(DR. HAHNEMANN)

ACUTE DISEASES
CLASSIFICATION
(Dr. Hahnemann)

A. ACUTE EXACERBATION OF CHRONIC DISEASES B. SPORADIC C. EPIDEMIC a) Immunizing b) Non-immunizing.
27-4-08 SAHYA 18

ACUTE DISEASES CLASSIFICATION
A. ACUTE EXACERBATION OF CHRONIC DISEASES E.g. Cold, Asthma, Colitis,Tonsillitis, Cystitis, Rheumatism etc.
27-4-08 SAHYA 19

B. SPORADIC Several persons at the same time here and there.

Atmospheric/meteoric influence, conditions of water, soil and other injurious agents E.g. Viral Fever, Influenza, Dysentery, Typhoid etc
27-4-08 SAHYA 20

C. EPIDEMIC

Many persons at one time. Infectious and contagious. Terminate in a moderate time. In death or recovery. In war or famine
27-4-08 SAHYA 21

C. EPIDEMIC
a. Immunizing: Once in a life time E.g. Small pox, Chicken pox, Measles, Whooping Cough, Scarlet Fever, Mumps etc. b. Non-immunizing (Recurring) E.g.: Cholera, Plague, Yellow Fever, Diphtheria etc.

Acute Diseases
(IN MY OPINION)

All are acute manifestations of Chronic Diseases. Microorganisms can produce disease conditionally only. This conditioning is done by Miasms. They are no separate entities. The influence of the Miasms is visible in the onset and development of the acute diseases.
27-4-08 SAHYA 24

ACUTE DISEASES
(Reflections by Dr. C.J.Varghese )

Recovery or death varies from individual to individual depending on Miasms. Triggered by different causative factors- internal or / and external . Development is always under the influence of the Miasms. Every individual is coded with a particular combination of Miasms. It determines the susceptibility. It decides the nature of development and progress. One of the episodes among whole process of development of disease. Complications and Prognosis decided by Miasms.
27-4-08 SAHYA 25

In the process of infection, mere contact with organisms does not involve any Miasm Infection is the establishment of a colony of disease producing microorganisms. Nature of the organisms, period of their existence, nature of their adverse activities, involvement of the tissues, return to recovery or decline or death etc. all conditioned by Miasms.
27-4-08 SAHYA 26

27-4-08

All complications or sequelle are due to wrong and unscientific (including wrong Homoeopathic) treatments. Nature of the complication or sequelle decided/determined by Miasms. Many treat chronic diseases as ‘acutes’ out of ignorance or negligence. I would like to treat ‘acute diseases’ as ‘chronic’.
SAHYA

PSORA

SYCOSIS

SYPHILIS

IN ACUTE DISEASES DEATH OCCURS DUE TO THE INFLUENCE OF A HIGH PREDOMINANCE OF SYPHILIS, OFTEN BYPASSING A NEGLIGIBLE RATIO OF SYCOSIS.
27-4-08 SAHYA 28

True cure does not lie in a mere removal of the disease symptoms or in their transfer from one organ to another, but in annihilating the very tendency for having the disease. (Several Anti Rheumatic Drugs are banned due to the finding that they affect Heart !)
SAHYA 29

INFECTION THEORY FAILING !!!
“ Although great strides have been made in the fight against

infectious diseases, many problems remain, even in developed countries. The spread of certain diseases (such as sexually transmitted infections) is difficult to control except by modifying human behaviour. For many infections, no effective vaccine has been developed. The majority of viral diseases cannot be entirely combated with drugs and some bacteria have developed resistance to the drugs available. When a new infectious disease appears, it may be years before an effective vaccine or drug treatment can be devised. In the mean time, large numbers of people may die”. Complete Family Health Encyclopedia 27-4-08 SAHYA 30 (British Medical Association)

 Failure because of considering infections as independent of host factors  Failure to understand the theory of Chronic Diseases of Dr. Hahnemann

Should homoeopaths follow this theory?
Proving the importance of

Miasmatic theory
( Unpardonable if not one becomes well versed in it)
27-4-08 SAHYA 31

I BEG TO DIFFER
• ALL ACUTE DISEASES ARE THEREFORE MIASMATIC AND HENCE UNDERSTANDING THE MIASM OF THE PATIENT IS USEFUL FOR PREVENTIVE AND CURATIVE TREATMENT OF ACUTE DISEASES 27-4-08 SAHYA ALSO.

USING FLOW CHART OF ACUTES

27-4-08

SAHYA

33

KNOW THE INDIVIDUAL WHAT TYPE OF A MAN OR WHAT CONSTITUTION YOU ARE DEALING WITHKNOW HOW HE HAS BEHAVED WHEN ATTACKED BY BACTERIA OR VIRUSES
27-4-08 SAHYA 34

REACTION SHOWN BY A PATIENT TO THE DISEASE OR INFECTION WILL TELL A PHYSICIAN WHAT CONSTITUTION HE IS DEALING WITH.
WHEN YOU HIT YOUR FIST ON A WOODEN PANEL , GLASS PANEL, THERMOCOL, COIR, COTTON MATTRESS, THE REACTION OBTAINED BY YOUR HIT IN TERMS OF NOISE OR BEHAVIOUR OF THE PANEL CONCERNED WILL MAKE YOU AWARE OF WHAT MATERIAL YOU ARE DEALING WITH.
27-4-08 SAHYA 35

WHAT CHANGES OCCUR OR DO NOT OCCUR IN THE ORGANISM / CONSTITUTION IS REFLECTED BY THE ACTIVITIES OF THAT AFFECTED CONSTITUTION.

27-4-08

SAHYA

36

Therefore the acute chart is based on ACTIVITY

OBSERVE THE CHANGE IN THE ACTIVITY WHEN THE CONSTITUTION IS AFFECTED
27-4-08 SAHYA 37

If Opium Constitution is affected by stronger dynamic influences, it will bring about temporary change in the basic constitutional picture in terms of activity, thermals and thirst and will be giving rise to a picture either of Aconite or Ant Tart or Belladona or Bryonia or Hyoscyamus or Nux vom or Nux mosch which are in relation with Opium.
27-4-08 SAHYA 38

This may occur if and only if Opium picture changes, which is not a must. That means, sometimes, the same picture of Opium can come up then another dose of Opium will help to manage the situation.
27-4-08 SAHYA 39

27-4-08

Once you become aware of the Dynamis behind Life (Vital Dynamis), Disease (Disease Dynamis) and Drug (Drug Dynamis) you can very well take decisions at every instance. (Just like an expert in music can understand that the musical notes are in order or not- sharp, flat etc…)
SAHYA

40

This change in activity, Thermals and thirst and physical and mental symptoms which are thrown out by the constitution are basically compensatory in nature.
27-4-08 SAHYA 41

27-4-08

It is a natural effort by the organism to provide immunity and restore the sick to health. Therefore very often health is restored without the aid of any medicine- homoeopathic or allopathic. If such recovery does not take place then and then only it calls for an intervention.
SAHYA

42

If required to prescribe, it shall be keeping with our basic law of similimum to the acute totality which of course should be based on activity, thermals , generals like thirst, and food and mentals changed state or attitude (PQRS) and not only on physical symptoms.
27-4-08 SAHYA 43

27-4-08

All the cardinal principles of prescription have to be obeyed ie., one remedy, one dose … then the Hering’s law will be applied… magical speed of recovery will be visible…general sense of well being…no subsequent weakness will ensue…gets back the appetite faster…can resume work earlier…
SAHYA

44

Such results are guaranteed when prescribed on activity, thermals, thirst and mentals that are changed. This is called ACTIVITYTHERMAL-THIRST AND MENTAL AXIS
27-4-08 SAHYA 45

Flow Chart is prepared for simplifying this especially for new Homoeopaths.

GOLDEN RULES FOR ACUTE PRESCRIBING

53 27-4-08 Brought to you by Similiacare.com





 



ACUTE DISEASE INITIATES A REACTION IN THE BODY CALLED IMMUNE RESPONSE Disease Manifestations Are Basically Defense Mechanisms at Work. MOST OF THEM ARE SELF-LIMITING IF THE ORGANISM FAILS TO RECOVER WITHIN A STIPULATED TIME, INTERFERE WITH A HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDY. PRESCRIBE ONLY IN INEVITABLE SITUATIONS 27-4-08 SAHYA 54

1. BE A MINIMUM PRESCRIBER

1. BE A MINIMUM PRESCRIBER




CURE SHOULD TAKE PLACE BY THE REACTION OF THE BODY TO THE REMEDY AND NOT BY THE ACTION OF THE DRUG EG: FERR. PHOS , BELLADONA, ACONITE ETC. REPEATED FOR FEVER. THIS IS WRONG AND MAY LEAD TO SUPPRESSION.
SAHYA 55

27-4-08

1. BE A MINIMUM PRESCRIBER



 



HE WHO PRESCRIBES THE LEAST IS THE BEST HOMOEOPATH HE SHOULD KNOW WHEN TO PRESCRIBE AND WHEN NOT TO PRESCRIBE. RESPECT THE INTERNAL PHYSICIAN HE KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR THE PATIENT AND HOMOEOPATH HAS NO RIGHT TO INTERFERE WHEN HE IS CURING ‘NO PRESCRIPTION YET CURE’- HIDDEN ART OF HOMOEOPATHIC PRACTICE.
SAHYA 56

27-4-08

2. BE A SINGLE REMEDY PRESCRIBER




 



THERE CANNOT BE TWO OR MORE SIMILIMUMS OF THE GIVEN STATE AT ONE TIME IN ONE ORGANISM ANY MULTI-REMEDY THEORY IS VIOLATION OF CARDINAL PRINCIPLES OF HOMOEOPATHY. SIMILIMUM IS ALWAYS A SINGLE REMEDY IF A HOMOEOPATH WANTS TO SEE MIRACLES HAPPENING WITH HOMOEOPATHY ADHERE TO THE LAW OF SIMPLEX
SAHYA 57

27-4-08

3. BE A SINGLE DOSE PRESCRIBER






IF THE SELECTED REMEDY IS THE SIMILIMUM, ALL THAT IS REQUIRED TO TAKE CARE OF ANY ACUTE OR SERIOUS ILLNESS IS ONE DOSE. IF ONE DOSE DOES NOT INITIATE A CURATIVE PROCESS, YOUR REMEDY IS WRONG. ADHERE TO THE LAW OF MINIMUM DOSE
SAHYA

27-4-08

58

3. BE A SINGLE DOSE PRESCRIBER
 DO NOT TRY TO REPEAT AND

REPEAT AND GET RESULTS.  HOMOEOPATHY IS A GENTLE TOUCH ART.  NOT MORE THAN ONE STIMULUS IS REQUIRED TO PRODUCE RECOVERY OR CURE.

AFFECTED SO DRASTICALLY AS TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE IN ACTIVITY , OTHER GENERALS, THERMALS, THIRST AND MENTALS? OR HAS THE CONSTITUTION REACTED TO THE ACUTE ILL
27-4-08 SAHYA 61

4. HUNT FOR ACTIVITY – THERMAL- THIRST AXIS
• IF AND ONLY IF , THE GENERALS, THE THERMALS, THE THIRST AND THE MENTALS HAVE CHANGED FROM THE ‘ORIGINAL’ THEN AND ONLY THEN, SHOULD THE PATIENT REQUIRE SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTIONAL DRUG.

IF THERE IS CHANGE IN ACTIVITY- THE GENERALS HAVE CHANGED IF THERE IS CHANGE IN TOLERANCE TO HEAT AND COLD- THERMALS HAVE CHANGED IF THERE IS A CHANGE IN WATER INTAKETHIRST IS CHANGED IF THERE IS CHANGE IN MENTAL ATTITUDESMENTALS HAVE CHANGED. IF THE GENERALS-THERMALS-THIRSTMENTALS AXIS IS CHANGED, SELECT A REMEDY SIMILIMUM TO THE NEW AXIS TO CURE ON THE BASIS OF OUR CARDINAL 27-4-08 SAHYA 63 PRINCIPLE OF ‘SIMILIA’

5. KNOW THE REMEDYRELATIONSHIPS
• ACUTE SIMILIMUM INDICATED IS
MOSTLY RELATED TO THE GENETIC CONSTITUTIONAL SIMILIMUM.

6. LOOK OUT FOR FULL MOON OR NEW MOON


IF THE CONSTITUTION IS VERY SENSITIVE TO FULL MOON OR NEW MOON, DO NOT PRESCRIBE TO THIS PATIENT ON THESE DAYS.

65

27-4-08

SAHYA

7. EXPECT FEVERS, DIARRHOEAS OR AGGRAVATIONS




FEVER, DIARRHOEA OR AGGRAVATION ON THE FIRST DAY AND RELIEF ON THE SECOND DAY IS A GOOD SIGN OF IMPROVEMENT FEELING BETTER ON THE FIRST DAY AND WORSE ON THE SECOND DAY IS A SIGN OF WRONG MEDICINE.

27-4-08

SAHYA

8. KNOW HOMOEOPATHIC PARAMETERS
DESIRE TO WORK  STAMINA TO WORK  DESIRE TO EAT AND DRINK  SLEEP  EXCRETIONS:- STOOL, URINE AND PERSPIRATIONS


8. KNOW HOMOEOPATHIC PARAMETERS
 LOOK OUT FOR THEIR

IMPROVEMENT RATHER THAN THE IMPROVEMENT OF FEVER, COUGH, HEADACHE, THROAT PAIN ETC…  LOOK OUT FOR THEM EVEN BEFORE THE LABORATORY OR X-RAY EVIDENCE COMES TO SUPPORT IMPROVEMENT…
