A Wrestling Match

A Wrestling Match

As the events in Japan continue to unfold, we are reminded that we are all connected through the fragility of life and the planet itself. It is in brotherhood and helping others according to our gifts, that we find the best of ourselves. Our hearts go out to those who are suffering and we offer our prayers.

I remember a lecture given by Julian Winston, a consummate historian of homeopathy, who passed away in June 2005. He was at a study group in the U.S. chatting with about 40 students. During his talk of some two hours, he was asked many questions. A number of times, instead of giving a direct answer, he said: “Look in the Organon, all the answers are there. It’s the bible of homeopathy”. It’s true, the answers are there, but they’re not so easy to understand and you have to wrestle with them. That struggle imprints a depth of understanding that nothing else can. The investment of your time and effort pays off forever. Some students ignore this text and seek easier alternatives. They may go into practice one day, but they will never speak with authority. If you want to practice well, and safely, then next time you feel like reading, reach for the Organon and do a little wrestling. If you get in a headlock, check out Hpathy’s treasure trove of Organon lectures by Drs. Bhatia, D’Souza and others. https://hpathy.com/organon-philosophy/

  • Homeopathy works,But no one can scientifically explain how it works.We the Homeopaths are feeling happy about the case histories as miracle of Homeopathy.But we have to prove scientifically to the conventional lobbyist. There was uproar about Nano Theory recently exposed in India in support of Homeopathy but it did not prove any thing because the conventional medical system are not convinced.One of the so called scientist in Montreal is lobbying against Homeopathy for the last 30 years and says”Most homeopaths are nice people but scientifically naive. Of course they would have to be to accept the idea that a decrease in concentration increases potency. Homeopathy is a scientifically bankrupt theory and the notion of potentiation by banging the solution into a leather pillow is absurd. Most of the time homeopathy is benign puffery but not always”. I do not know what to say to this. I only hope that to get real recognition, Homeopaths have to prove though research involving the conventional medical system to participate in common study.Most of the studies published are done by Homeopaths alone.

    This is my wish to see one day that the conventional medical lobbyist accept openly that Homeopathy works till then it is wrestling matches being won by conventional system of medicine.

    • Dr.Schmukler
      I am myself a Homeopath.I know homeopathy works.

      All other medical systems like Chinese system, Ayurveda, and many more including Allopathy also work and they have been proven scientifically that they work.The only difference is that all other medicines other than Homeopathy have side effects. It seems you have taken my comments offensively. I want Homeopathy be accepted by the dominating conventional system and their lobbyist.
      I have so many cases treated by Homeopathic remedies myself in my over 50 years experience,But producing proof of these case will not convince Allopathic lobbyist.We have to work seriously to prove scientifically how Homeopathic remedies work to gain confidence of the conventional lobbyist and public at large.I would appreciate if you write an article explaining scientifically how Homeopathy works.
      Thanks

  • WHAT IS SAID IN DR. ALAN’s EDITORIAL NOTE IS COMPLETELY CORRECT. HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT IS A SPECIAL ART AND IT IS STUDIEDLONG. HOMOEOPATHS SHOULD BE EXTREMELY DILIGENT IN BRINGING BACK THE PATIENT TO WELLNESS FROM ILLNESS. IT IS CERTAINLY TRUE THAT REPEATED STUDY OF THE ‘CORE DOCUMENT” OF THE HAHNEMANNIAN SYSTEM WILL ENABLE A HOMOEOPATH TO WRESTLE WITH CRITICAL AND STUBBORN CASES THAT ARE EVASIVE TO ALLOPATHY.
