3 YEARS OF SUFFERING # 3YEARS ONLY ON HOMEOPATHY# COFFEE AND HOMEOPATHY
They are indeed wise, who know that the secret of success is concentration. One should be very attentive and focused while seeing patients or doing any other task. Our mind is as restless as monkey and as strong as intoxicated elephant. While doing any task we need to plunge heart and soul into it. Many apparently good undertaking cases do not bring the desired results; It is because lack of coordination between eye, ear and brain of the doctor.
I simply love to drink coffee while listening to music, but I always make sure my love won’t spoil my life, that’s the reason I drink coffee or tea occasionally ( once in a month or two months)
One day I went to my friend’s house ,where I saw a person with lots of skin eruptions with lots of pus in the lateral and medial aspects of the both foot. As a homeopath I was curious to know about his problem but my dignity stopped me ask. After a while,that person himself came to me and introduced himself as a huge fan and follower of homeopathy. He proudly told me that he has been using homeopathic medicines for his eruptions since 3 long years. He added that there was not much improvement in his condition even though he uses only homeopathic medicines from different homeopaths as he knows that allopathic drugs are not good for skin related issues and that suppression leads to serious illness
I was speechless, should i feel happy as he was supporting homeopathy or should I feel bad that without proper knowledge he talking about homeopathy.
I asked him why his problem was not improving,for this he replied , “you. know ma’am, homeopathy is a slow acting medicine ,it will take time to heal but at the end it will give
best results ” I was speechless again, at that point of time I really wanted to yell at him and tell
” Homeopathy IS NOT SO SLOW TO TAKE 3 LONG YEARS TO TREAT ECZEMA” ,
again my dignity stopped me to shout on him.
I asked him politely “how many remedies you used so far?”. He happily showed all his prescriptions ,more or less 100 to 150 remedies he used so far. He almost has a mini pharmacy in his room, surprisingly he has few uncommon drugs as well in his home pharmacy which I too don’t have in my clinic.
His sugar levels are about to cross the margin line, and his legs condition so bad to move,he was not even able to walk properly because of pain. I literally felt bad,and decided to take up his case at any cost
I asked him to give me a chance to treat him. He agreed for that.
In this type of cases out of the box thinking is necessary. We should have open mindedness and should not get carried away by prejudice. Many times we can not succeed in the task due to fact that we tend to judge our fellow doctors or other schools of medicines simply by with our standards
It is not ethical to blame our fellow doctors in front of patient, because we never no what exactly happened. Blaming other homeopaths is equal to indirect blaming of our homeopathic system. In the process of blaming others it’s a great chance of missing focus from actual subject which needs to be treated. As a doctor dignity and decency are primal things which need to be followed.
In this case why medicine didn’t work. May be because of more number of medicines been taken. First thing which I need to do in this case was to antidote all medicines..
I asked him to drink a strong coffee as coffee antidotes many remedies..
Here is the twist,. Patient said,
” I LOVE COFFEE.. I DRINK STRONG COFFEE THREE TIMES IN A DAY”
At this point two points came in my mind for not improving his eruptions
- Either over drinking of Coffee is responsible for his eruptions
- Medicine which he needed got antidote by coffee
To understand the actual condition of the patient I asked him to STOP DRINKING COFFEE COMPLETELY.
Patient lost confidence in me after listening my last statement. He asked me ” first you said DRINK COFFE, now you are asking me to STOP COFFEE…. WHY???”
If this type of situations arises we need to behave like a commanding doctor,because if you start explaining things in proper way, he will get more confused and ask many questions, which leads to loss of trust .so I told him in more authorative way.
” IF YOU WANT TO GET WELL…DO WHAT I SAY, I AM ASSURING YOU THAT I WILL CURE YOU, BUT YOU SHOULD NOT TEST MY ABILITIES….if you want treatment, you must stop drinking coffee for 14 days, on 15 th day come to my clinic, till then I am not going to prescribe any medicine”
Dear students! That was a rude way to talk to patients. As a doctor we need to behave randomly on the basis of situation , position and qualities of the patient. Some patient say you are arrogant, some say you are polite ,some say you are god and some say you are devil. What ever may be the response or reaction from the patients, our internal emotional state should be calm and stable.
Our outer actions cannot be fruitful unless our intentions are pure.
Our only mission is to CURE THE PATIENT. we need to use every possible psychological method in the journey of treatment. You are arrogant or calm won’t make any difference, how many people benifited by your treatment is the only thing which makes difference..
NEVER BEG FOR RESPECT…… LET RESPECT FOLLOW YOU….
BE YOURSELF. LET PEOPLE ACCEPT YOU AS YOU ARE.
AFTER 15 DAYS:
Patient came to my clinic with proper appointment and with full respect.. And guess what,50% of his eruptions and pain went off…Again didn’t prescribed any remedy or any saclac. Asked him to see me after 30 days.
AFTER 30 DAYS:
65% problem got cured. After that it remain stand still.. Then I took case history. The main symptoms which I got in the case were
- Problem aggravate around sea shore
- Lacrimation while laughing
- craving for salt
- Lacrimation in open air
On these symptoms I prescribed NAT MUR 1M…. As problem already cleared to maximum extent, I prescribed high potency.. you can see the results in pics.
Initially when I met him very first time his whole personality indicated NUX VOMICA.. Even previous doctors prescribed Nux vomica to him. If you check in repertory with coffee symptoms you can find NUX VOMICA in many rubrics. But the thing is a good physician shoud know when to prescribe and when not to prescribe the drug.. His whole drug picture got changed after stopping of that TOXIC COFFEE…
Dear students! Please open the page number 109 in chronic diseases (3rd paragraph) by Dr.samul Hehnemann and read ,where master quoted
” COFFEE HAS IN GREAT PART THE INJURIOUS EFFECTS ON HEALTH OF BODY AND SOUL WHICH I DESCRIBED IN MY LITTLE BOOK (Wirkungen des kaffees (EFFECTS OF COFFEE) ,Leipzig,1803)”
In the 4th last lines of paragraph master said that physician can only permit what is best for his patient, it must remain as an established rule that chronic patients must altogether give up this part of diet ,which is insidiously injurious.
I Suggest all students to read lesser writings by Dr.Hehnmann, dear students, you need to understand every literature of master Hehnemann and need to apply it in practice. See the results. Merely believing in some theory, in some doctrine or dogma is not enough for the intelligent mind. A wakeful mind cannot be satisfied by simply hearing about things from others.
WISE INTELLECTUAL FOCUSED DEDICATED DOCTORS ONLY CAN CHANGE THE FATE OF HOMEOPATHY
I am dedicating this article to all upcoming young generation homeopaths. You people are precious and you are pride of homeopathy.
LET’S MAKE HOMEOPATHY AND HOMEOPATHS GREAT AGAIN
