Often when I talk about the ‘Homeopathic Science‘ in public, I hear people say that homeopathy is well established but the science behind it is not. For me homeopathy is a science and it is a science because it has a philosophy of its own. For this philosophy is what makes us stand heads and shoulders above that crowd of palliators. In this philosophy we have everything that the others have been trying to find for the past 2000 years. And yet they are not ready to believe that somebody found the truth that they have been searching for, some 200 years back. What do we call it? Ignorance or ego!
Nearly 500 years back, man came face to face with the so-called modern science and then he started dumping the then prevalent philosophies. Five centuries of scientific progress later the most scientific men on earth (biologists, genetic engineers, anatomists, physiologists etc.) have realized that it is not possible to explain the life of an organism by breaking its body.
So now they are searching for a ‘scientific philosophy’ to fix the jigsaw puzzle of the human body that they have created. Yes! They are searching for the ‘holism’ that we have found two centuries ago. They have now realized that medicines given in large doses produce undesirable side effects. We have been preaching this for more than two centuries! They have now realized, through their costly scientific experiments, that lifestyle and atmosphere does affect a human being’s health. Our ‘Organon’ stated this truth way back in 1810! Day after day they are finding the wrong bends that they have taken and yet I can do nothing but pity them, for they are trying to find some known truths. And what does all this prove? That, if not more, we are still moving two centuries ahead of any other system of medicine.
This may seem like an exaggeration to many but the day is not far away when even our foes would say so. Doubts do exist in the public and also in the homeopathic fraternity regarding the scientific nature of homeopathy. I would like to mention about the following recent advancements in this regard to help remove whatever doubts do exist about the scientific nature of homeopathy.
Homeopathy is a science very recent in origin and it deals not only with matter but also deals with energy. Therefore, it cannot be explained by Newtonian physics and conventional chemistry. Some recent work done in the fields of quantum physics, quantum photochemistry, triboelectricity, studies on electrical resistance of homeopathic dilutions and, their waveforms etc. has proved that the Avogadro’s number is no barrier for the existence of homeopathic dilutions. These works have also helped in proving the following:
- Homeopathic potencies are not mere dilutions.
- The electrical properties of homeopathic dilutions are different from simple dilutions.
- Each homeopathic medicine has a different spectroscopic pattern.
- Homeopathic medicines can be differentiated from each other.
- Different potencies of homeopathic medicines can be differentiated from each other.
This is not all that is being done to prove that homeopathy is not only scientific but is also the science of the next millennium. A lot of other research work is being directed to meet the same goal and sooner or later the world will have to realize that it is only homeopathy that can move with the times to save the humanity from the ever-increasing disease processes. This is because homeopathy is not only redefining the concept of cure and medicine but is also helping science to redefine itself. This definitely is an achievement. Also homeopathy is the only system of medicine that can integrate itself with life unlike other systems of medicine which work with disease in isolation.
Due to the so-called scientific progress, day after day our life-style is moving away from the course of nature. This conflict with nature is resulting in ever increasing chronic diseases. So in the next millennium we will see an upsurge in the number of chronic diseases and also in the types of chronic sufferings. We may also come across newer disease forms due to the suppression of chronic diseases by the so-called ‘wonder drugs’. There may also be a resurgence of epidemics of old as well as newer disease forms because of the debilitated vitality resulting from the excessive use of the modern wonder drugs.
Keeping in view these and many other unforeseen challenges, homeopathy seems to be the only respite to the humanity in the next millennium. For it is homeopathy alone that does not suppress the disease but makes the body to overpower the disease through it’s own natural vitality, thereby increasing the body’s resistance in general. Homeopathy is rising swiftly and steadily and once it is in a position to provide a strong alternative to the conventional systems of medicine on a global scale, the day won’t be far away when the conventional system of medicine will buckle under it’s own weight. At this moment as I try to visualize the glory that lies ahead for homeopathy I remember these words of Mastana:
Let me be, the way I am
Let me grow, the way I do
Let me free, in the ocean blue
Let me move, as breezes do.
Yes! Let us come together and try to evolve a science which is not bound by any pseudo-scientific restrictions; a science which is free to grow with experience; a science which has a supporting philosophy of its own; a science that has got a human touch to it and this millennium will be ours!
