Passive Case Witnessing Problem

It’s a case of a 6 year old girl who consulted me on 18/12/08.

The very first peculiar thing we observe about the child is …she enters the consulting room holding mothers hand tightly.

M: She has made a drawing for you.

(Child’s sibling is also our patient. Every time when this child used to accompany her sister, she would draw and now also she has got the following drawings. This itself shows us the child’s intense connection with her subconscious through this form of art.)

M: She does not have any health problem as such but I wanted to start treatment for her overall development.

PASSIVE CASE WITNESSING PROCESS

D:        Tell me what’s happening to you..? Can I send your mother out?

P: No.

OBSERVATION: Clings tightly to her mother.

D:        Okay, tell me what’s your name?

P: OBSERVATION: Sitting in mothers lap with her hands around mother’s neck. N……P……

D:        Tell me more about you?

P: PAUSE

OBSERVATION: Smiles and clings more to the mother.

D:        Tell me what are your interest and hobbies? What you like to do?

P: I like to swim, like to draw, I like running…playing.

D:        Wow! What else?

P: I like to play on the computer, like to watch TV.

OBSERVATION: Now she removes her hand from the mother’s neck and sits leaning on the table, yet she is in her mothers lap.

D:        What else you like to do?

P: Like to go to school.

D:        Very nice, very nice you are talking?

M: You sit on the chair and talk to the doctor.

P: OBSERVATION; child sits on a chair next to the mother but still holding her arm.

As the mother starts to leave the room, the child jumps off the chair, starts crying and goes and hugs the mother, and goes out with her.)

(The mother comes in with her after some time but now the child sits on the chair and mother on the sofa behind her.)

D:        OK, so tell me what else you like to do?

P: I’ll like to play – go on a slide. Like to read books.

D:        Very nice. You are speaking so well. What else you like to do?

P: Like to dance… then I like to play, then I do homework.

OBSERVATION: Looks behind towards the  mother.

ACTIVE CASE WITNESSING PROCESS

D:        And what are you scared of?

P: Scared of lions, tigers…

D:        What else?

P: Bhoot.

The mother had some work and she had to go out of the room. Immediately the child said no.

D:        You are speaking so well. Just talk with me and your mother will come in 2 minutes.

P: No…no…(OBSERVATION: She gets up and clings to mother and starts crying)

D:        OK you don’t talk, but can you draw till your mom comes back?

(She sits on the chair and starts drawing.)

(Since she was not ready to communicate even after so much of encouragement and the fact that at the beginning she had brought drawings, we ask her to draw.)

OBSERVATION: She covers the paper with the hand and also draws at one lower section of the page.)

D:        Wow! What is this?

P: This is my sister & me, & this is my father and my brother.

D:        And what is this?

P: A heart.

ACTIVE – ACTIVE CASE WITNESSING PROCESS…

D:        What is this heart doing here?

P: I love heart so I drew it.

D:        Earlier also you drew hearts. What about this heart you love?

P: I love heart like that only.

D:        Heart with arrows what does this mean?

P: Looking into the drawing. (PAUSE)

D:        What are you all doing?

P: We all are looking at the heart and thinking what is it.

D:        What does the heart mean?

P: I don’t know.

D:        You like drawing heart huh. When do you draw it?

P: In school. In my drawing class. I draw heart and stars and one day I drew heart and star in the Christmas tree.

D:        In this drawing who is having the flower? (We spotted a flower in the drawing she had made.)

P: My sister- she is just holding it.

D:        She is going to give it to someone or what?

P: Me.

D:        And heart will go to whom.

P: To my brother and father.

D:        Why?

P: Like that only.

D:        Like that only. OK… Would you like to draw something more for me?

D:        Wow! What is this?

P: A drawing.

D:        Of what?

P: Drawing of a garden. This is me and my brother.

D:        What are you both doing here?

P: We have come here to play.

D:        What are you playing?

P: Running and catching.

D:        What is this?

P: Flowers.

D:        Which flower are they?

P: This is flower, this rose and…this …this is pink flower.

D:        Draw one more thing for me?

P: OBSERVATION:  She draws human figures and then joins all of them together.

D:        Wow! What is this? I don’t know what it is.

P: My family.

D:        What’s your family doing here?

P: Ring-a-ring-a-roses.

D:        Ring-a-ring-a-roses. What’s that?

P: (PAUSE) … I saw the movie called Road side Romeo. (This is a bollywood movie)

(Here when we ask her about fears, she herself goes to the area of movies, so we become active- active to explore this area.)

ACTIVE – ACTIVE IN DIFFERENT AREA -MOVIES

Child goes out and comes back with another drawing along with the mother.

MOTHER’S OBSERVATION OF THE CHILD

She is very affectionate child.  She will go and give big hugs even to strangers. She is very fond of her younger brother and she will make him understand things by saying you can win this or that and she lets him win. Actually she is friendly with anybody and everybody.

END OF THE CASE

UNDERSTANDING OF THE CASE

OU OF PLACE/ OUT OF ORDER

Passive case witnessing process

Verbally the child didn’t speak anything peculiar but our observations regarding the child were very peculiar…

• Her clinging.
• Sitting in the mother’s lap.
• Holding mother tightly.
• Holding her hand while talking.
• Hugging the mother.

Active case witnessing process

• Clings to mother as she tries to go out of the room.
• Covering the paper with hand while drawing.
• A heart.

Active-Active case witnessing process

• I love heart .
• I drew heart and star in the Christmas tree.
• Drawing of a garden
• Flowers.
• Draws human figures and then joins all of them together.
• Too much family attachment.
• Ring-a-ring-a-roses.
• That dog he loved Laila Leila
• Like they don’t shout, they don’t hit and all.

WHAT IS THE FOCUS/CENTRE/ESSENCE OF THE CASE

• Love, attachment and togetherness.
• Love for heart.

This is very evident from her body language and all her drawings. Also this further gets confirmed from the mother’s observation of the child.

WHICH KINGDOM?

• Pure sensitivity seen.
• Drawings of garden, flowers.

This clearly points to the PLANT KINGDOM.

WHICH FAMILY?

This tremendous attachment to the mother, togetherness of the family, hugging and clinginess, love for hearts is very suggestive of the MALVALES family.

WHICH MIASM?

We observed that whenever she draws she covers the paper with her hand. This gives a hint of the SYCOTIC MIASM.

WHICH REMEDY?

The remedy from the Malvales family with Sycotic miasm running in the centre is TILIA EUROPA. BUT in the case we observed that along with the general theme of the Malvales family, the child’s focus was “Heart”. So when a further inquisitive search was made keeping focus on the “Heart” interestingly we found out a remedy TILIA CORDATA which also belongs to the same family where the leaves of the tree are heart shaped.
Thus the remedy given was TILIA CORDATA.

WHICH POTENCY?

At the end of Passive case witnessing process, verbally the child seemed to be at the ‘Name and Fact’ level but the peculiar body language which we didn’t understand initially and which got connected later on with the whole phenomenon, represented the child’s complete altered energy pattern. Thus the child (non-verbally) vibrated at the Delusion level. Therefore the potency given was 1M, single dose.

History of Homeopathy in India



Hpathy Ezine, July, 2008 | Print This Post |

Dr. Ardeshir T. Jagose presents an excellent synopsis of the History of Homeopathy in India

The history of Homoeopathy can be traced as far back as the year 1835 when a Romanian man Dr. John Martin Honigberger visited India. He was called in by the Maharaja Ranjit Singh of Lahore who was suffering from paralysis of the vocal cords with swelling of the feet. He treated the Maharaja dispensing “Dulcamara” in wine, in low potency. This medicine cured him. The Maharaja was also impressed when he treated his favourate horse of his ulcer of the leg. Dr. Honigberger became the chief physician of his court.

Later on after the Maharaja’s death Dr. Honigberger shifted to Calcutta. In Calcutta, he was known as the “Cholera Doctor”. He wrote many books among which were “Thirty five years in The East, Adventures, Discoveries, Experiments and Historical sketches of Punjab and Kashmir”. He practised in Calcutta up to 1860. Dr. Honigberger happened to go to Vienna and caught Cholera. He saved himself by taking Ipecac, every half an hour. This incident greatly impressed him and he started dispensing Homeopathic medicines both for himself and for others.

In 1836 in Tanjoor, Dr. Samuel Brookling, a retired surgical officer, dispensed homoeopathic medicines to his civilians and army officers stationed at Madras.

In 1836-1867 Dr. Mahendra Lal Sircar, learned about Homoeopathy from a layman, Rajendralal Dutta, popularly known as Babu Rajen Dutta. He had a number of cases to his credit. He cured Iswar Chandra Vidyasagar of asthma and also cured gangrene of the foot of Maharani of Shorapur, and greatly impressed Raja Sir Radhakanta Deb Bahadur of Shorapur.

On 16th February 1867, Dr. Sircar wrote an article condemning allopathy titled “On the Supposed Uncertainity in Medical Science and the Relationship between Diseases and Medicine”. He was the first man to start a journal on homoeopathy – “India Medical Review” and to attend the first Homoeopathic National Congress conference under the chairmanship of Dr. C. Hering.

In 1867 Dr. Salzar of Vienna was the founder of Homoeopathic education in India. He influenced two persons towards homoeopathy namely Dr. P. C. Majumdar and Dr. B. L. Bhaduri. Dr. Majumdar along with Dr. Roy, Dr. B. N. Banerjee and Dr. Younan established the first Homoeopathic college in India in the year 1878 under the name of “Calcutta Homoeopathic Medical College”.

Dr. S. C. Ghosh proved many drugs from the Indian herbs and gave them to his patients in low potency with great results. He compiled a book named “Drugs of Hindustan”. Unfortunately, nobody noticed this book, until 1970-1971, when the “Central Council for Research in Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy” (CCRIM & H) unearthed the book and a number of drugs were proved.

In August 1869, a Bengali named Babu Priyanath Bose started a hospital with an OPD (Out Patient Department) in Allahabad. It was at this centre that Mr. Motilal Nehru took treatment during his struggle for freedom.

In 1880 Father Augustus Mueller, a priest and teacher of a school founded by the Society of Jesus in Kankanady in Manglore, started dispensing free homoeopathic drugs.

In 1902 there was an epidemic of pneumonic plague and Father Augustus Muller treated most of the people successfully. He established a plague and leprosy clinic. Seeing this, the British presented him with the “Kaiser-e-Hind” award. He also wrote a book entitled “Twelve Tissue Remedies”.

In 1937 the British government had not recognised this system of medicine and it was for the first time that M.L.A. Miyan Ghias-ud-idin passed a regulation in the Bengal Assembly to allow recognition and patronage to homoeopathy. Thus, homoeopathy was introduced in Bengal for the first time in the pre-independence years.

After independence, the Government was more sympathetic and on 17th Feburary 1948, Sir Satis Chandra Samanta, M.P from West-Bengal, piloted a move in the constituent assembly to establish a Central Agitation Body i.e. Central Council of Homoeopathy. This was passed after a modification by Mr. Mohan Lal Saxena M.P (U.P). It was supported by Dr. Pattabhi Sitaramayya, the President of India. Some of the important items in the draft proposal given by the representative of the All India Institute of Homoeopathy to the Government of India was of great help to put the education of homoeopathy on a firm base.

In 1944, the Government of India set up a five member committee with the Late Dr. L. D. Dhawale being one of its members. He requested the Government to recognise and allow Homoeopathic practice and teaching. He wrote a book in Marathi called the “Homoeopathic Chikitsa”. He was the spearhead in starting the “Government Homoeopathic Hospital”.

In 1946 the “Council of Homoeopathy” of West Bengal was established with homoeopathy being recognised.

Dr. B. K. Sarkar, (M. D.), was a renowned teacher in Homoeopathic Philosophy at Calcutta Homoeopathic Medical College. His contribution to homoeopathy was enormous. His commentaries on the 5th edition of The Organon were well known. Dr. S. P. Dey compiled one of his collections into “Essay on Homoeopathy”.

Dr. B. K Bose the “Grand Teacher of Homoeopathy” passed his M.D. from Chicago and was a direct student of Dr. Kent. He was an excellent teacher in Materia Medica.

In 1952-1954 the National Congress Government appointed a small committee – Homoeopathic Reference Committee constituted by Rajkumari Amrit Kaur, the Union Health Minister of India (1952). Dr. J. C. Mukerjee was nominated as chairman of this committee comprising of six homoeopathic practitioners and four allopaths.

In 1956, the need for creating a post of Honorary Advisor in the committee was felt. However, the Government approved of this post in 1960, and Dr. Krishna Gopal Saxena was the first to be appointed.

The Government of India constituted a Central Council of Health, which was a committee of Health Ministers from all states and was headed by the Union Minister. This committee used to meet once a year. It passed a resolution that each state would give recognition to Homoeopathic colleges from 1960. Another resolution passed was that the Government of India should constitute a body to enforce regulations and promote research in homoeopathy.

The Maharashtra Act was passed in 1960. It constituted two bodies :

1) Court of Examiners (concerned with education and new colleges).

    Professionally myself a Lawyer but my adoration towards Homoeopathy is so extreme that I cann’t express in a short word. Since my college days I have been in touch with Homoeopathy & till today maintain it inspite of my busy hours in court & chamber. In my Library a separate almirah is there full of Homoeo Books composed by the outstanding personalities of the field. Everyday I go through minimum a page from those books and it is my duty beside reading Law Books.I take the subject as a means of service to Humanity following the education of LORD HAHNEMANN. If possible please send me E- journals on Homoeopathy. With regards…………………… a follower of Lord Hahnemann.

    Really it is a great thing to unveil the history of great leaders of homoeopathic science and their contribution to the people of India. Homoeopathy like Ayurveda teaches the people to live nearer to the nature. All the homoeopathic medicines are proved on healthy human beings as such are safe to use, but each prescription requires history of the illness of the patient and it is the diagnosis of medicine to be prescribed. The physician has to find out the constitution and action of the remedy to prescribed. It needs a lot of patience both on the part patient and physician then only the wonders of homoeopathy will come out. I salute all the great leaders of the homoeopathy of the past and the present.
