The Concept of Homoeopathy

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Homoeopathy is a complete system of medicine which aims at promoting general health by reinforcing body’s own natural health capacity.

Homoeopathy has an entirely different approach from the conventional allopathic system of treatment. Homoeopathic system of medicine is based on the law of similars, that is, likes are cured by likes. The remedy used to treat sick people are actually capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person to those present in the patient needing the remedy.

Likes cure likes. Any substance, which can produce a totality of symptoms in a healthy human being, can cure that totality of symptoms in a sick human body – Samuel Hahnemann.

Homoeopathy forms a holistic approach to health, it aids the body’s abilities to heal itself by improving the immune system of the body.

No two individuals manifest their illness in exactly the same way, so how can the remedy used for two individuals be the same. Certainly there are broad similarities & a degree of categorisation is possible but with detailed analysis there are always differences. This is the key to homoeopathic cure.

The differences between the way two individuals react to a similar disease are an indication of the unique way in which each of them react. This uniqueness of the symptoms & reactions brings in the difference in the remedy prescribed to each one of them.

This is the concept of homoeopathy & homoeopathic cure.  Courtesy/source

Kidney stones

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

Kidneys are two small fist-sized organs, located behind the abdomen, on either side of the spinal cord. Their main function is to flush out the toxins from the blood in the form of urine. Kidney ‘stones’ is a medical condition that has found mention since prehistoric times. Archaeologists have found evidence related to the presence of kidney stones in the Egyptian mummies.

Men are known to suffer more than women from this extremely painful affliction which is generally seen in people between the ages of 30-50yrs.It is more prevalent in industrialized countries, possibly due to the adversely fast lifestyle, while in developing countries bladder stones are more common, especially among young children.

Kidney stones or calculi are formed when the urine becomes concentrated. They may occur anywhere along the urinary tract causing pain, obstruction and secondary infection. Of late, the incidence of kidney stones has increased among the general population, which experts believe is due, largely, to the change in lifestyle and dietary habits.
