Magic in the Sweet Homeopathic Pills!!

Magic in the Sweet Homeopathic Pills!!


Good morning everyone and welcome once again
to wacky Wednesday, it’s been 27 years since I have been practicing classical holistic
homeopathy, and there have been certain questions that are asked to me recurrently, one of them
is, “Hay Dr.Priya, you are an Indian do you practice Ayurveda? second is “Hay Dr.Priya does homeopathy
come from India?” so I decided why not do a wacky Wednesday to explain these to queries
to you, so you see dear friends Homeopathy originated in Germany in the 18th Century,
it was discovered by a Physician by Dr.Samuel Christian Hahnemann, and therefore it got
popularized in the western globe and later it even came to the Commonwealth countries. In India, around the same time, there was
a French Doctor by the name of Dr. Dr Martin Honigberger, Who treated Maharaja of Punjab,
Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and then he went to Calcutta and started practicing there and
helped a lot of cholera Patients so was called Cholera Doctor, It’s the British who popularized
Homeopathy all over India, sometimes even at the cost of Ayurveda, Yes, they were our
Invaders But the essential philosophy of Homeopathy, is very similar, to the essential philosophy
of India and Ayurveda, so Homeopathy, which was brought in by the invaders took roots
in India and has flourished and today some of the best Homeopaths of the world come from
India, Yes, so the essential philosophy of Homeopathy believes that any disturbance or
dis-ease starts at the level of the spirit then percolates to the level of the Mind and
then gets expressed at the level of the body as signs and symptoms, And it is the skill
of a Homeopathic Doctor to decipher signs and symptoms and come out with a perfect remedy,
Yes, when Homeopathy started getting popularized there were two kids of people who popularized
homeopathy there were the lay people who started studying Homeopathy as a Hobby and started
many charitable clinics and they did a lot of good work, but, then there were physician
main stream Doctors or mainstream Allopaths, who got converted to homeopathy and started
practicing Homeopathy, this credit goes to Dr. Mahendra lal Sircar, from Kolkatta, He
popularized Homeopathy among the main stream Doctors. So somewhere around 1973, the Government of
India established the Central Council of Homeopathy, to look into the matters regarding Homeopathy,
As time passed homeopathy became more and more popular somewhere in 1983 the Government
of India again started University degree courses in Homeopathy, these courses were unique,
in the sense very integrated they brought the clinical knowledge to homeopathy, yes,
these Degrees “BHMS” which is what I have, Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery. Now what does this course tell, so in the
5 and a half year university degree course we do everything from Anatomy to physiology
to general medicine to Gynecology to surgery. Yes, in being the Bachelor of Homeopathic
medicine and surgery you study everything that an MBBS doctor studies only in the 5th
year where they study their Pharmacopeia, we study our Materia medica. Now, therefore, we are medically trained homeopaths,
but even today there are medically non-trained homeopaths, what’s the difference between
the two? The knowledge of homeopathy is the same for
both, but a medically trained homeopath has further clinical knowledge, in the sense,
his diagnostic skills are better, then the medically non-trained homeopath, therefore
in the western side of the globe, a lot of countries have now made it compulsory for
medically non-trained homeopaths to either practice with the mainstream doctor general
practitioner or with the medically trained homeopaths, so that there are no diagnostic
errors, now what do you mean by that, Let me explain further, let’s say there is a child
Asthmatic child who comes to you, the oxygen level of Asthma children, drop very fast,
sometimes, you have to pick up these clues, if a doctor is medically trained, He is able
to pick it up and act quickly, to do something to increase dilation of the bronchi, so that
the air goes in and the oxygen level goes up, see there is no fight between this pathy
and that pathy, sometimes you do need in emergency you do need mainstream medicine, there is
nothing wrong in it, there is no fight among traditional medicines, so you see traditional
Chinese medicine comes from China, they use acupuncture acupressure as well, traditional
Ayurveda comes from India which uses the Indian herbs, unani comes from the middle east and
Jamu comes from Indonesia, from India also comes another system of medicine the Siddha
system of medicines, many at times people feel there is a fight between all this, homeopathy
from Germany Ayurveda from India. TCM No It is not like that, it is the patient
who is most important, Sometimes patients tell me that they are not able to have the
very very bitter TCM or Ayurvedic medicines, they would prefer me to give them the homeopathic
medicines, because you all know how homeopathic medicines are sweet, and they are very easy
to carry around, but they would prefer the Ayurvedic massage or the TCM acupuncture,
and I am absolutely ok with that, it is together we can work towards the betterment of our
patient, can’t we? Yes, that is the whole idea, because all traditional
medicines believe in the trinity of the mind, body and in the spirit, yes, they believe
that the disease is only when there is an imbalance in the Trinity, and a doctor or
a physician does not need to take over the human system, the human system is fully capable
of rectifying itself, traditional medicine believes in supporting the human system to
help it on its way to recovery. Now traditional doctor are not miracle people,
so people, when they come to traditional doctor, expect miracle, that’s not right, if your
illness has taken 3 years to develop you at least need to be patient for 3 months for
you to see start seeing any recovery, yes, at the same time, you also need to be perseverant
in your treatment. Two key things which are needed in homeopathy,
patience, and perseverance only then you will start seeing results, of course, it’s even
valid in acute medicine. Homeopathy has great results in even things
like fever, sour throat, right now I am having one, and I am taking my own medicine, I can
even tell you, which one, I am taking Hepar Sulph yes, now these medicines can give quick
effect, the fever can come down as fast as a Panadol would bring in, and I am not joking
if the illness has taken 3 days to start you can give me 3 3hours to show you recovery,
of course, that also means you also do lateral things, you have to manage your diet, you
have to do other complementary things to benefit you if you have a sour throat and you go out
and eat an ice cream and say “Hay Dr.Priya your medicine not giving me relief,” well,
I always say I am not a magician, we both work together the patient and i to help the
patient recover, yes, so it is 50% you 50%me, together we are going to work towards recovery. Now, what is difference between the homeopathy
and other traditional medicine a little bit on that, other traditional medicines use the
herbs in their essential form, which means let’s say for instance in TCM they use Ginseng
root, the Ginseng root is used as it is, we also have homeopathic Ginseng, the homeopathic
Ginseng looks nothing like a Ginseng root, in fact it is either in a liquid form or those
little sweet globules form, that is because, in homeopathy, we take the Ginseng root, and
energize it is via process which is known as a potentization succussion or trituration
that’s the topic in itself, will address some other time.Similarly Ayurveda let’s say they
use onion for which I had done a wacky Wednesday last time, well in homeopathy also we use
onion as one of our medicine and it is called allium cepa and it is used to treat exactly
the symptoms a raw onion when you chop produces, your eyes water, your nose leaks, kind of
like flu, well allium cepa if one of the best medicines for flu, but the medicine is again
its energized form, you take a bottle of allium cepa, or the pills, you have nothing to do
with the smell of the onion, because it is all in an energized potentized, that’s the
classical difference between all other traditional medicines, and homeopathy, in that sense,
because of this energization homeopathy is taken in very little pill forms very small
quantities, lot of times the patient a whole lot of questions case taking of one and half
hours and then i give a teeny weeny bottle of medicine patients look at me say only this
much, well it is energy packed bottle of medicine and therefore it requires a lot of good care
and handling to retain energy and again that’s the topic by itself. Which i will address some other time. So i think i have clearly explain to you all
how where homeopathy started and how where it settled in India. if you are having any questions further related
to homeopathy, do reach out to us and we will be more than happy to answer them, on that
sweet note, here’s wishing you health and happiness. thank you.
