SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS OF HOMOEOPATHY IN SURGICAL DISEASES:

Posted by Drdevendra Kumar MD Homeo
The scope of homoeopathy is a subject which has received too little consideration by teachers and practitioners alike .hazy and confused ideas prevail.as a result we find on the one hand a few sincere but misguided enthusiasts attempting the impossible and bringing ridicule upon themselves,and on theother hand ,the great majority,ignorant of the higher possibilities,missing their oppurtunities and bringing discredit upon themselves and their art by resorting to unhomoeopathic measures in cases which could readily cured by homoeopathic remedies.one believes too much ,the other too little.neither one knows why he succeeds in one case and fails in another. – S.Close

HOMOEOPATHIC CONCEPT OF DISEASE
-THE DYNAMIC CONCEPT
-THE INDIVIDUAL CONCEPT
-THE HOLISTIC CONCEPT

DISEASE IS NOTHING BUT ABNORMAL
-VITAL PROCESS.
-A CHANGED CONDITION OF LIFE IN WHICH MAN
-SUFFERS FROM DISEASE

In this universe every human being is unique and confronts the universe in his own way.that is why we see differ ent set symptoms in each individual in a group, even though they are suffering from same nosological or clinical entity.

It Is The Individual Who Is Diseased Not The Parts Of His Body .Hence If You Remove The Damaged Parts And Think That The Disease Is Removed Or Cured Is A Wrong Notion Which Is Prevailing In The Minds Of So Called Modern Medicine People

There are special class of diseases which arise out of mechanical causes like accidents ,congenital malformation etc., basically these diseases require surgery as the first line of treatment.but for the management of case subsequently homoeopathic medicines can be given basing on the symptom similarity.

Apart from these ,the homoeopathic treatment could be offered as second line of treatment in pre-surgical and post-surgical conditions where in other systems may not be effective .like in a case of accident fracture is reduced surgically ,after that one can administer homoeopathic medicines basing on his constitution for speedy and uneventful recovery.

There Are Another Class Of Diseases Which Are Known As Surgical Disease Under The Sub Classification Of Local Diseases.These Are The End Products Of A Dynamic Disease Which Are Acting As Obstacles For The Process Of Cure.These End Products Should Be Subjected Surgical Procedures And Cure Can Be Ensured.For Example In Malignant Tumors Which Are Compressing The Normal Healthy Tissues.

Between these two classes of cases there lies a class of diseases which are known as so-called surgical diseases.because these are the cases which are very well amenable to medical treatment and fully operative sphere of homoeopathy.there are so many clinical entities which are labelled as surgical disease but in practice they are not.

In These So-Called Surgical Disorders The Following Are Clinical Conditions Where We Can Very Well Avert The Surgical Intervention And Can Be Better Managed By Homoeopathic Treatment As First Line Of Treatment.

TONSILLITIS/ADENOIDS
SINUSITIS
APPENDICITIS
CHOLOLITHIASIS
UROLITHIASIS
UTERINE DISEASE
OVARIAN CYST
BENIGN PROSTRATIC HYPERTROPHY
GOITER
HAEMORRHOIDS/FISSURE/FISTULA
BENIGN MAMMARY TUMORS
WARTS,STYES
GANGLION
ARTHRITIS
DISC SYNDROME

SOME SURGICAL CONDITIONS AND PROBABLE HOM. DRUGS:
Tonsillitis- Am.mur,Guaiac,Bell,Merc,Phyt
Appendicitis- Echin,Bellad,Lachesis,Iris tenax
Cholelithiasis- Chionan,Hydrastis
Urolithiasis- berberis vul,cantharis ,diascorea, sarsaparilla,ocimum c

Haemorrhoides-aloes,aesculus,nux.vomica,muriatic acid
Warts-silica,dulc,thuja causticum,antimonium crudum
Ganglion-ruta,silicea,benzoic acid,Kali.m

In Conclusion We Can Only Say That If One Is Well Versed With The Concept Of Disease And Scope Of Homoeopathy He Can Manage The Sick Individual In A Better Manner And Can Avoid Unnecessary Surgical Intervention.By This Way The Physician Can Bring Name And Fame For The System In General And Individually (Himself) In Particular.
