Homeopathy as a system of medicine works best if the homeopathic doctor is able to delve deep into the patient’s mind! Why is it so? While treating ailments of the body as well, why recommend homeopathy to investigate the mind of the person? The answer is simple!
Homeopathy is a holistic mode of therapy that relates effectively to the patient as a whole. It does not consider only one organ or part to be diseased but considers the whole person sick; if the person has a physical, mental or emotional impairment it is too late. Unless the person is sick in the higher realms, his organs cannot be disturbed by any external force. This higher realm is nothing but a person’s mental and emotional makeup. Especially when treating chronic conditions, every homeopath must address a person’s mental symptoms or general mental disposition every day.
No wonder this makes homeopathy one of the best therapeutic systems of medicine for disorders related to the mind. Here we must clarify one thing. When we say that the person has a disease related to the mind, it is not necessary that the disease originates from the mind. There are many ailments that a person may suffer from childhood on the physical plane. If this physical suffering is suppressed by some powerful healing power, his mind may be affected in the process.
Is it difficult to understand? Actually no! Let’s have a look at the points–
For example, if the person had an urticarial-like rash in his childhood for many days together and his doctor later gave him some strong medication that suppressed the natural expression of his allergic tendencies; the urticaria has not completely disappeared. It stays in a latent form or an inactive form in his body only to affect some other vital organs over a period of time.
Many homeopaths have seen this happen in the majority of cases of mind related disorders.
The disease suppressed, of course, can vary from person to person; but there has been some kind of oppression. There may also be an emphasis on some emotional baggage; not necessarily medicine, but vice versa.
Homeopathy attempts to relieve this suppression in the most subtle way without aggravating the latent disease but destroying it along with the disorder of the mind concerned.
No wonder homeopathic doctors ask so many questions to fully understand you. It has always been said that you should never hide anything from your doctor, and never from a homeopath. Unless he knows your full background, he won’t be able to prescribe you accurately.
What kinds of mental disorders can be treated with homeopathy?
Homeopathy in the hands of an expert is able to treat almost all ailments related to the mind with success. With this we can formulate a small list of mind disorders (or mind and body disorders or symptom complexes) that can be treated with homeopathy-
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Autism or autism-like syndrome
Deviant sexual behavior
Hyperactivity in children
And much more!
Homeopathic medicine is the best weapon to treat the root cause of this mental illness and give the person complete relief from this syndrome. Just a word of warning- Never treat yourself or your nearest and dearest unless you have deep homeopathic knowledge. Homeopathic doctors are well-trained individuals with a good background in clinical medicine. This is emphasized here because to know the characteristics of the symptoms of these mental disorders, doctors must first know the general symptoms of the disease. Only then can he treat a case homeopathically and effectively cure the person concerned.
But homeopaths rule ‘science’ And ‘art’ homeopathy can not only cure a sick person but can also become his best friend through efficient counseling sessions!
