Dr. Sandeep Jauhar’s book “Heart: A History” was published in 2018. In it he describes a couple cases that evoked an epiphany for him. One involved a woman who suffered tremendous grief when her husband died. Her heart then developed a pathological shape and dysfunction referred to as Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. When she recovered from the grief, the shape and function of her heart returned to normal.
Another case involved Dr. Jauhar’s father, who lived in India and was bitten by a snake. He returned home and was feeling well. Then someone brought a cobra into his house, claiming it was the snake that bit him. His grandfather looked at the snake, fell over and died. The cause of death was not snakebite, but heart attack from fright.
Dr. Jauhar concluded that “Emotions and the responses that they engender can have a direct effect on the heart.” He now lectures on the relationship between emotions and heart disease. He noted, that during his three-year training in cardiology, no one ever addressed the effect of stressful emotions on the heart.
This is an important commentary on the current state of conventional medicine. It’s still in a nascent period in terms of understanding the mind-body connection. The situation is very different with homeopathy. As we all know, such understanding is essential knowledge for all homeopaths, all of whom have encountered pathologies caused by emotional trauma. And all have witnessed those pathologies reversed by remedies that addressed the trauma. Two hundred years ago Hahnemann wrote (§ 213):
“Therefore one will never cure according to nature—that is, homoeopathically—unless one considers the mental and emotional changes along with the other symptoms in all cases of disease, even acute ones, and unless for treatment one chooses from among the remedies a disease agent that can produce an emotional or mental state of its own similar to that of the disease as well as other symptoms similar to those of the disease.”
During patient visits, conventional doctors take notes on physical symptoms but gather only the most rudimentary information on the patient’s inner state. They just don’t have the orientation to search further, and with nothing but antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs, their tools lack the precision to address complex emotional states. What could they give for ailments from humiliation, guilt, suppressed anger or abuse?
Furthermore, how well can a doctor assess a patient’s history of trauma when the average length of a doctor visit (U.S.) is 17.4 minutes, and the median time patients speak is 5.3 minutes. 1
I’ve known very fine allopaths who were exceptions, and were caring and empathic listeners. They all had extensive knowledge of physiology, pathology, anatomy etc. and I would always think “He/she would make a wonderful homeopath!” If only they had been taught the concepts of homeopathy, they would certainly have embraced it and found its potential.
The door to homeopathy is always open. There’s an entire other world of healing, for any who wish to enter.
