Homoeopathy is a holistic form of medicine. In treating an illness it takes into account the unique emotional and physical traits of the individual concerned. So the medicine prescribed for two patients suffering from the same disease will be different. Although homoeopathy works very quickly in common, everyday complaints, it is a treatment for those in search of an instant cure in acute diseases.In chronic diseases, it requires careful self observation and the will power to stick to a plan of action. The reward for this is a greater sense of well- being, energy and resistance to disease
Homoeopathic approach, just as explained in the above paragraph is, therefore, holistic and curative in nature while in modern concepts other than that of Homoeopathy, suppression of diseases take place in the name of scientific solutions. In Homoeopathic treatment the patient’s mental and emotional levels are primarily set right so that the sufferings in the physical level follow suit and normal health is restored. In circumstances where modern medicine fail to open-up a way into the encroached innermost parts of the cell in which the disease producing virus easily gain access, Homoeopathic medicines that perform an eccentric work evicts the viruses from their habitat in the interior of the cell and restore primary normalcy there so that rapid cure and restoration of health follows. In the sphere of preventive medicine Homoeopathy is well known and most effective in situations of viral invasions precipitating an array of health problems ranging from meningitis, encephalitis, viral hepatitis, measles, scarlet fever, chicken-pox, mumps, diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, aids, viral endocarditis, leptospirosus, viral pneumonia and so on. The efficiency of Homoeopathic medicines to prevent conditions created by Bacilli (Tuberculosis, Bacillary Dysentery, Typhoid etc.) and Bacterial affections is well known. In advanced cases in which it may not be possible to provide a cure to the patient, most smoothening palliative work is seen undertaken by the selected Homoeopathic medicine.
The socio-economic impact created by adopting Homoeopathic system of treatment is much better than any other system of treatment prevalent in the world.
Manipulations are not permitted in Homoeopathy for the purpose of treatment and hence ailments like transmission of Aids never occur due to Homoeopathic treatment unlike in the dominant system of treatment in which injections, blood transfusions and laboratory manipulations on the body of the patient are frequent carrying the risk of spreading serious ailments from carriers of such diseases. Keeping morale is a pre-requisite for the effectiveness of Homoeopathic treatment and hence the patient also become healthy in mind and soul. Because the defensive mechanism is strengthened by Homoeopathic medicines, following the discipline of Homoeopathy, controls the invasion of new outbreaks of diseases like SARS, Chikunguniya, swain flu etc . Since the institution of Homoeopathic treatment is on the basis of data collected from the patient and his/her by-standers, treatment can be begun without waiting for costly investigations to fix the disease. This aspect, along with the availability of medicines in cheap rates, makes Homoeopathy cheaper than many other systems of treatment. Homoeopathy is, therefore, most suitable for the developing nations. There is only one handicap to Homoeopathy that it is very difficult to master it. It is a Devine Science that unless one dedicate his/her life for its study, it may not be possible for him/her to encompass it fully. Yet in countries like Australia, Belgium, USA, UK, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Canada, Germany, Finland, Netherlands, Holland, Switzerland, Ireland, Austria, Malaysia, Srilanka, Czechoslovakia etc. there are Homeopathic doctors who render exemplary services trying to restore the sick to health using this unique system of treatment. Many a time when diseases become a hard nut to crack to the modern systems of medicines, Homoeopathy steps in with its simple yet wonderful magical capacity to cure diseases in man, has helped to restore the sick to health and has controlled epidemics during their outbreak effectively and independently because preventive medicine was available only in Homoeopathy in many situations. The demand for Homoeopathy, in fact, is increasing day by day in various countries mainly due to the flaws of Allopathic medicine and its characteristic inability to cure diseases except in accidental instances, definitely not due to its merit but due to natures play. Because Homoeopathy is built upon on the rock of natural laws, what was laid down as the cause of production of diseases and the principles of curing them in man always stand flawless and help the mankind to regain his health, lost, of course, because of his own fault!
Dr. Binoy Vallabhassery categorizes people into constitutional types. In homoeopathic terms a person’s constitution is his /her inherited and acquired physical, emotional and intellectual make up. A closely fitting constitutional remedy, selected according to these criteria acts preventatively and curatively.
In addition to examining the symptoms of an illness, he enquires the fears, food preferences and response to general factors such as weather. He also takes into account a person’s physical appearance, weak areas of body. Dr. Binoy Vallabhassery then selects a remedy that closely matches a person’s constitutional type.
