Last evening I met Manu and his father at a party. Manu’s father, a resident of sector four, and my mother’s cousin, Manu, his son of twenty one, and a witness to my initial years of struggle in Gurgaon. Manu had seen me closely at every step of my eleven years long journey from an amateur homoeopath to an established one; despite an age gap between us we shared a friendly relation. Nevertheless, our preoccupations reduced our contact to a bare minimal, and it was one of those rare meetings.
His father told me that last month Manu had to undergo appendicectomy and could not take two of his engineering final tests, also that they had to spend Rs. 36,000/- on the surgery in a leading hospital of the city. Still Manu experienced the same kind of pain a month after the surgery as was felt before it. This time the hospital refused to admit him and suggested he should be taken to a bigger hospital in Delhi where all his tests were done again and he was found to be having severe infection in the abdomen. Hearing all this was really painful for me as a homoeopath. And equally painful was for them to know that not only appendicectomy could have been averted with homoeopathic / homeopathic medicines but the severe pain of appendicitis could also have been relieved pretty fast. “How fast?’ he asked curiously, “from the administration of a dose of the right homoeopathic / homeopathic medicine to getting relief, it takes about three to five minutes. And about thirty seconds to sixty minutes for an expert homoeopath to find that remedy.
Despite being close to a homoeopath their ignorance about the curative powers of homoeopathy / homeopathy reflected the dismal lack of awareness prevalent amongst the masses.
Not only appendicitis but there are so many so called surgical conditions which can be averted with homoeopathic / homeopathic medication alone, but due to ignorance people fail to take advantage of this wonderful science and not only suffer mental & physical pain, and financial losses, but sometimes lose their organs as well. The most common of such conditions are:
Uterine fibroid is a benign tumor in or on the uterus and takes more women to surgical tables than anything else. And in most cases outright hysterectomy is also done, at times, without sparing a thought. Uterus is not only instrumental in pregnancy but plays a pivotal role in maintaining the balance of health in women at every stage of life. Fibroids are not life threatening and can be cured with medication alone in homoeopathy / homeopathy. About 96% of the cases of uterine fibroids respond favorably to homoeopathic / homeopathic treatment and avoid surgery, according to an extensive research and study on Female disorders during the last ten years, by Dr. Shubhangee (Former Registrar, Nehru Homoeopathic / homeopathic Medical College and Hospital, New Delhi). By averting surgery they escape numerous post surgical complications of abdominal surgeries, viz. incisional hernia, intestinal adhesions, peritonitis etc. and the best part is these females do not have to live with the side effects of an early-enforced menopause like, osteoporosis, hormonal imbalance, which affects not only physical health but mental and emotional as well, to counter these, artificial hormones are given which have other grave side effects, as endometrial & breast cancer, and heart diseases, and studies in America proved, “their risks outweigh their benefits,” leading to abrupt abortion of trials on humans, while in India these are still prescribed frequently.
Ovarian cysts too respond very well to homoeopathic / homeopathic treatment and within six weeks favourable results are visible in ultrasonographic examination.
Tonsils act as saviors and safeguard us from infections esp. for pharynx and upper respiratory tract which makes them a very important part of the immune system. But many misconceptions prevail about these throat glands and these too are surgically removed quite often. Homoeopathic / homeopathic treatment taken on time can help avoid these surgeries.
Sinusitis and DNS symptoms might relapse after surgeries. At times there is no relief at all after surgery. While in homoeopathy / homeopathy there is quite effective treatment available for these troubles and results can be felt pretty soon.
Spine is one of the vital and sensitive organs of human body. And surgery related to it is risky and if unsuccessful can leave serious after effects in its wake. Often, if a surgery fails to yield desired results a second one is suggested. Most people come to us at this stage and we have handled cases where patients who came to us after twin unsuccessful spine surgeries with suggestions for a third, could gain prompt and lasting relief from our treatment.
Like any other pain suppressing back pains is not recommended in homoeopathy / homeopathy as this initial occasional pain is the first sign of the impending and graver condition. Instead of turning a blind eye to the pain by suppressing it with painkiller pills or ointments one must try to root the problem out. Homoeopathy / homeopathy, if tried at this stage, will not only relieve the pain instantaneously but abort the progress of disease itself.
Apart from these, piles, fistula, renal stones, arthritis, sciatica, lipomas (fatty tumors), ITP, gangrene, are other conditions where homoeopathy / homeopathy really helps avert surgery.
Our experience with cancer patients treated with homoeopathic / homeopathic medicines confirms that the patients who chose homoeopathy / homeopathy as the first option in the beginning of their trouble had far better results than those who came after surgical intervention, chemo and radio-therapies.
Homoeopathy / homeopathy or homoeopaths are not against surgery, and it is an important branch of Medicine, in certain conditions the only option. Yet at times it is not really required and seems illogical. At times it is found the patient himself/herself insist on surgery despite being advised otherwise by surgeons, as they believe getting rid of the ailing or painful organ will be the end of their suffering. Disease, according to homoeopathy / homeopathy, is not something local or confined to a particular organ, but something wide spread and generally pervading the whole body, each cell to say at physical level, and the mind, and the very psyche, to be precise. Rather than removing an ailing organ, uprooting the disease by homoeopathy / homeopathy which adopts a holistic approach, works on the person as a whole, raises immunity and gradually eliminates the disease itself, is a much better option.
