Author: Dr. Jayesh Shah, Consultant and Senior Faculty, the other song – International Academy of Advanced Homoeopathy  Chronic skin complaints like psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus virtually constitute the bane of a person’s life. The anxiety and the social embarrassment due to the complaints is often more agonizing than the suffering itself. This becomes a perpetual concern for the patient and the family. Often we get cases where every mode of treatment is tried before they finally approach us. The chronicity and the direct body- mind connection in such complaints necessitate the need for a systematic......

CASE OF TONSILLITIS

By: Dr. Shekhar Algundgi MD(Hom), F Hom (UK), DN (Naturopath) This is a case of a 4-year-old girl having the complaint of recurrent tonsillitis consulted on 2nd October 2012. The child was very shy. She did not lift her head up to look at us from the time she entered the consultation room with her mother. She was hiding her face with her hands. In cases where the child is highly introverted (like this one), I generally prefer to take a detailed history of the mother’s pregnancy and at the same time, the child is given......

Since Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s time, many eminent homoeopaths have contributed and expanded the basic principles of homoeopathy with outstanding results. One such contribution to the advancement of homoeopathy is the Sensation Method.

Remedies are understood at a much deeper level, and they are not just as a random collection of symptoms. Each remedy is understood in totality from the point of......

Integrating the Old and The New In Homoeopathic Practice

Dr Sujit Chatterjee (DHMS, FCAH) In the past two decades newer ideas of classification of the remedy according to Kingdom and Miasm have emerged. Along with this development, an understanding of the importance of knowing the exact experience of patient in terms of Sensation has been rediscovered. This has reawakened the idea of generalization, practiced by Boenninghausen – this tenet holds that we can generalize the local sensation and that what is true of the part, is true of the whole. Furthermore, the discovery that each remedy has the qualities of its Source has given a new dimension to......

By: Dr. Sunirmal Sarkar MD(Hom) Nowadays in homoeopathic practice, with newer approaches addressing thematic representations of remedies and with newer provings emerging, practitioners have forgotten the fundamental and basic principles of homoeopathy and have largely shifted away from the practice of traditional and foundational homoeopathy. My approach to homoeopathy can be summed up in one word, simple. Most things in life are simple and should be kept simple, and homoeopathic practice is not an exception to this tenet. To be a fine homoeopath, one does not need to be intelligent, wealthy or have good contacts. A fine......

The Clinical Application of the Repertory in Pediatric Cases

Aphorism 153: Children cases have the most fantastic results with homeopathy one remembers our masters like Dr.Borland, Dr. ML Tyler having a hospital catering to children  and treating difficult pathologies like pneumonia , influenza with homeopathic remedies and discovering the more striking, singular, uncommon and peculiar(characteristic) signs and symptoms. After training under masters like Dr. Sankaran, Dr. Sarkar, Dr. LM Khan, and Dr. Vijay Vaishnav,the one thing that I have learned is that they always emphasize on developing a ‘clinical eye’. They gave importance to observations made, especially the ‘objective’ symptoms, rather than the subjective symptoms......

The Art Of Eliciting Characteristic Symptoms By: Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad What fascinates me the most about Phatak’s Repertory is how small, concise and precise the book is! Within that small book are such precise rubrics with just a few remedies. Introduction I have always respectedmy Guru, Dr. Rajan Sankaran, but was surprised when I saw him suddenly shift gears from using a larger Repertory, like Complete or Kent Repertory, to using Phatak’s Repertory. I distinctly remember a case from my initial years while I was training with Dr. Sankaran. It was a caseof a middle......
