Letters to the Editor August 2007

Thank you for your thoughtful editorial. I have been practicing for 5.5 years now, and I agree with your analysis of education and the use of new methods. I was educated in the US, under Eric Sommerman/Val O hanian, both lovers of the classics. I was incredibly fortunate. However, they were not as dedicated to the modern medical arts, and I find myself continuing to learn, and striving to learn what I need in this area. We need both skills.

I agree with your comment on focusing on the patient——– in fact, I find that the patient, if I listen, tells me what “method’ of case taking to use, but the principles of case management never change.

Thanks again for your insights, and I hope that many read them.

Respectfully,

Beth Knudtsen-Spears

Feedback – Gastritis
The homeopathic content was useful, especially as I had just had such a case. It focused my mind on choosing the remedy, which was interesting in itself because constitutionally the patient is lycopodium, and carbo veg has
worked very well for the gastritis – there being an acute/chronic relationship there.
The medical content would be useful to students – although they should have learnt it at college – or someone studying on their own, but I feel it should be adequately referenced. I would be pleased to have more such articles, but for me I would prefer the emphasis to be on differentiating homeopathically – exceptions would be more rare or obscure conditions.
Thank you anyway – your work is much appreciated.

Dear Dr. Bhatia, I want to thank you for your heartfelt article. I am practicing somewhat in isolation…seeing patients out of my home in Mississauga, Ontario. I have had so many moments of doubt in my eight years of practice. Just as I begin to wonder whether I am “doing the right thing” for those who come to see me, something happens which is wonderful, such as a patient, full of gratitude, writing me some small note of thanks. These few times keep me going. As far as deciding which remedy is right for each person, I find that the ones in which I spend hours scouring texts, looking for some common thread to grasp and finding none but a chaos of different remedies, in these cases I do not do as well as the ones which I try to rise above the symptoms a bit and just ask whoever …..which remedy tells me of this person the most? Since I have begun to trust this more as time goes by, I know I am walking at these times a very special course which is somewhat elusive. I only wish I could consistently work well. I thank you again for admitting to frustration in this wonderful science. I know to the depths of my heart that there is something so true, so promising and so right about Homeopathy that I can only hope to be able to improve to the point of doing all I can do to the best of my ability. Sometimes I feel that we are touching the tip of the iceberg as pioneers in North American Homeopathy. It is as if the ones of us who are practicing know in our hearts that we are humbly playing with a real universal truth that we are privileged to take our meager efforts to like a baby who first smells a flower and knows that it is something special. You have given me hope to continue and so I plod on, trusting that time and experience will yield the gifts of knowledge. Best regards, Janee Niebler

Thanks so much for providing this free course!
I found it to be very informative and easy to understand.
It has made me even more excited and interested in Homeopathic medicine.
Please keep up the good work!

Thank you for your words of guidance to students and new practitioners.

I myself am in my first year of practice after studying for 8 ½ years (to complete a 4 year full time degree), and although I have been seeing patients in the student clinic for the last 4 years, it is different “flying solo”. So thank you for the reminder about the basics. I was fortunate to see Dr Luc when he came to Australia earlier this year and appreciated him sharing his knowledge of case management and reminded me that it is all there if you read the Organon.

Thank you for your wonderful newsletter

respected dr bhatia,

i am a practicing homeopath, Dr Pranesh Shroff, From Malad Mumbai.
it is inspiring to see such a good work being done. on a casual browsing of the net i bumped on to your site and here is a realization of sorts. i could identify so much to your editorial for students for the July issue that i wanted to give a response to it straight away. i have not read anything else about you or your journal besides the editorial and these are my maiden ideas.
that i loved them a lot. they are spoken from heart and for the well being of the society with the will to enhance health overall.
the joy it seems comes from the sharing you have done.
i have been practicing from 14 yrs and have similar feelings that you have written. unfortunately i am a little laid back and not as much enterprising to have the zeal to learn incessantly and maybe from the lack of a good constant discussing and sharing partner. i have tried to mingle with the schools around but somehow could not gel easily for whatever reasons and i am put aloof with my practice and convictions. i have attended almost all good seminars from day one and got a good amount of theory in mind alas little could it help when after Dr Vijaykars workshop i understood to be grounded and go to the basics and try to learn things from grassroots. this i am doing and trying to improve but with a slow pace sure.
this much i shared so as to connect with you, if at all..
i always had the feeling and the line written in my mind as well that a Homeopath essentially has to be a healthy human being first and was happy to read it elsewhere – in your mind.
hope to keep in touch. if you can.

keep the light burning. aude sapere.

lovingly. pranesh.

Disappointment
Respected Sir,
In the current issue of June2007, I could not find Dr. Bhatia’s Audio MP3 lecture on Organon of medicine. We are eagerly waiting for further lectures after # Understanding ‘Aphorism Five’ – I. Sir everything – voice quality, recording, explanation is excellent and unique. Please continue the same contribution to the cause of Homeopathy and all. We expect further lectures as soon as possible. Waiting for your favorable reply soon. With regards!

Dear Dr. Manish

I have just read your editorial and you have made my day. Thank you so much.

As a student who has just completed third year here in Galway, I felt that your whole editorial was written for me!
That you knew on some level what I have been experiencing in the last few weeks and you have written a personal letter of advice to me!! Believe me it has really helped, thank you.

I can relate at this point of time to everything that you have written, I have just been having some of those experiences that you talk about and wondering what am I doing, or where am I going with this course? I have just started to take cases and I am discovering that I actually need to go back to the very basics of homeopathy and read the Organon and Kent’s Lectures again and again. So the synchronicity of your editorial is incredible.

I can honestly say that I am so lucky in that I have a wonderful mentor who is guiding me through this difficult time and helping me in a person centered way to learn about myself and my short comings and what I need to do to go forward. She has given me the courage not to be afraid to learn from my mistakes and to do exactly as you say in your editorial, go back to the basics and learn the philosophy again and work from there, that there is no basis without it.

As you say, getting to know yourself is very important, but it is very hard to do, because as a human being I like many others have huge difficulty in admitting that I make mistakes. But I am getting the guidance right now with that and feel so lucky that I am.

So your article really touched a spot in my heart right now.

I will be printing out your editorial and putting it where I can refer to it each time that I have doubts or fears or just feel plain scared!
Thank you so much for a wonderful editorial.
.
Take care

Dear Editor,

I wouldn’t like to enter in a correspondent discussion with the respected Luc De Schepper, MD, PhD, Lic Ac, but I disagree with his statement, that the new methods (he quotes these of Sankaran and Scholten) are a greatest dander for the future of Homeopathy.

These “new methods” are focused on postgraduate students and practitioners so it’s supposed, ad hoc, they know the repertory and MM by heart. These “new methods” aren’t a sort of “New age”‘s experiment but a serious and fundamental understanding of Homeopathy through the contemporary – 21’s century – human experience and vision. And these “new methods” actually aren’t new methods, but new approaches to the homeopathic method.

The more I enter in the depth of Sankaran’s works, the more I understand what Hahnemann had wanted to express with “central disturbance” and how the central disturbance correlates with the Sankaran’s “general sensation”. This is like Mozart’s music – simple and genius. It’s simple because it’s genius and genius because it’s simple. (Please, don’t accept this as a calambour.)

The genius of Homeopathy is due to its openness as a system. Practically every open system can be superstructured. I have never accepted the work of Hahnemann as a dogma, but as a way to be followed and developed during the centuries.

I can’t help agreeing with Luc De Schepper that the homeopathic education is “mediocre worldwide and bad in many parts”. But this is not good reason to charge Sankaran’s and Scholten’s work with a kind of guilt. This seems like this: Let’s eat with fingers and stop using the knives as kitchen utensils because some people had committed a murder with them.

The contemporary homeopathy needs contemporary dialogues and discussions. Furthermore – tolerance. And the tolerance could start with the teachers. When the teachers enjoy good “health”, the homeopathic environment could be healthy and … hygienic.

Best regards

Dear Dr. Bhatia,
I just wanted to thank you so much for the editorial you wrote with your words of wisdom and guidance. I’m just about to enter the 2nd year of 4 at the BSH in Bath, England. I struggle with understanding the way to get case taking right. I try very hard and put 100% in to everything I do. My commitment is absolute because Ibelieve in Homeopathy as the true path to take.( I tend to get A’s for everything else except for the case- taking, the part which is so vital in the practice of Homeopathy.) I would like to have a guide book on how to start doing it properly, one demonstrating the Kentian method etc etc.(basically all the basics through to mature case -taking ) Step by step so that I can learn and progress. If you have suggestions for me I would be so grateful.
Thank you again for that inspiring editorial. It has helped me hugely in terms of confidence building.
Yours Sincerely
Melanie Morgan-Jones.

Your editorial of July issue is very informative.It gives practical guidelines for a successful homoeopath.Even though there are different schools here one has to have the basic correct to follow any particular schools likeSehgsld, Vijyarkar, Sankaran etc.

Dear Dr. Manish Bathia –

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful letter you wrote ‘ a note for the students’. I’ve been working for over ten years now, and I’ll always stay a student :-). Your insights were frank and encouraging.
Thanks for taking out the time to share them!

Good luck in all your endeavors.

Dear Dr Bhatia,

Thank you so much for your excellent article, it is so true. Through my passion for homeopathy AND for books, I started my business selling homeopathic books. Surrounded by all this wisdom, I was perplexed at the lack of time I had to read because I was busy running a business! So I would read bits of this and bits of that, all the exciting things. However, like you, I discovered the works of Dr Luc de Schepper and Dr David Little and the grey picture with missing pieces sprang to colour. THEN, when I had a more accurate and complete BIG PICTURE, I could plug in all the new works along with all the old masters and create my own kaleidoscopes. With a firmer basic understanding I can also plug in other things that can help me such as Chinese Medicine, Jungian Psychology, Ayurveda – make your own list. Nature provided them all and you can use nature’s clues from many sources. I would suggest that a successful Homoeopath reaches inside to blend knowledge with self, is true to his/her inner self (heals thyself), and gives of himself as you have done here. It makes a difference.

Thank you again, and warm regards.

What a wonderful letter you took the time to write to the students!

I belong to this site and become frustrated at times with the bickering that goes on about who is right about what the essence of Homeopathy is. You are right – one must always be working on the progression of self and the desire to help others. In my limited experience (graduated 2004 from the Devon School) I find that the remedy will “speak to me” when I am able to establish an empathetic rapport with the patient. If my mind is too busy being stressed about “what is the remedy” it clouds my vision and therefore my ability to “be” with the patient.

I hope to continue to learn as you say until I hang up my boots!

Thank you!

Janet

Dear Dr. B,

Your honesty and candor has touched me very deeply and its message was just what I needed to hear. To say that it was timely would be an understatement! You see I have just completed my first year of practice and have spent a good amount of time chasing my tail and pulling my hair as I struggle to make my patients well.
Like you, I had read and read trying to digest the works of our masters during my education, and also those works of some of our contemporaries – I still do. During this past year in my own practice, I was forced very quickly to confront my shortcomings. I am amazed at the parallels, it was as if you were writing about me and my journey thus far. You have confirmed for me what I believe to be true – I need to continue to build the classical foundation until it becomes second nature, not look for different ways to do things – not yet.
With the utmost sincerity I would like to say, “thank you” – It was truly inspiring.

Sincerely,

Nick Mazzoli

Dear Dr. Manish Bhatia,

As a student of Homeopathy at the British Institute, I REALLY APPRECIATED YOUR ARTICLE.

I enrolled in the BIH, expecting wonderful miracles in short order from homeopathy, but found it all to be much more difficult than expected. There is so much to learn. The material media seems so overwhelming at times and the homeopathic repertories – even more overwhelming most of the time.

I have gotten so frustrated, one minute thinking “Aha – I’ve got this one”, only to find that I didn’t have it.

But there are two things that a number of homeopaths have said and that is 1) to study homeopathy, you must have humility. 2) homeopathy is a life long study. I try to keep those things in mind and take it one day at a time.

I have also found Robin Murphy to be one of the most inspiring teachers and most encouraging. He is able to explain things so well, and I feel he has a good understanding of homeopathy. He doesn’t expect perfection and he always gives hope (with a smile). If it wasn’t for him, I might have quit by now.

Thank you again for your article…it is another big encouragement to me as a student of homeopathy. I will print it, keep it in a special place, and read it often.

As a student of homeopathy – I just wanted to say thanks for this article from Dr Bhatia. These are sentiments that I have been thinking myself recently as I find I keep thinking that I should know more or know it all…keeping to the basics is hard to do – but sound advice! Being grounded in a strong foundation is important.
Anyway thanks again it is good to hear advice like this.
Kind regards,

WOW, it helps me to use the Scholtens method. I liked the pictures of the periodic chart and stages. It is easier to relate to this method when I see it and have it explained this way, Thankyou.

Dear Editor

Thanks for the Homeopathy for Everyone ezine. I have taken a look at ‘The Psychosomatic Dimension of Homeopathy including Cancer Cases’ by Dietmar Payrhuber. My only comment at this time relates to the making of remedies
and using them in prescriptions without first having a proving of the substance. By proving I refer to the process described in the Organon rather than a group review or discussion of the substance.
Nevertheless good to see authors contributing interesting articles.

Yours sincerely

Thank you very much for these papers.
Dr Payruber initial articles made the philosophical point very clearly. However new cases are always helpful to clarify the practical application of an abstract theory and so such cases are of much interest. I’d be happy to see more of Dr Payrubers articles and cases in the future.

Again thank you,

I had gone through the first article thoroughly and also the concept of Scholten as far as his explaining of the symptoms only I can say it is a different dimension taking into the periodic table and generalizing.

As far as the case are concerned the cure might have been effected I do not doubt them. But can we put every manager into aurrum or like that can we generalize no Some manager can be Pulstilla also. ferrum also and I have seen some to be Phosphorus. We can generalize like this/ This is what I personally feel Homeopathy has been indvidualistic and it has be individualistic only then only it has its own place. I am using different softwares in Homeopathy but hey cannot take the place of your judgment. In the last what I would like to say is we cannot mechanize Homeopathy is a Science but more than that it is Art.

Dear Dr. Bhatia et al-
Since you requested feedback, here is some of general type: I find the
quality of your online magazine is consistently of very high level. Your
articles are relevant and of interest to practitioners and cut into new
territory.

=========
Question: are past issues archived at a particular internet address?

=========
Ideas for further articles/interviews if not already covered in past issues:

–The new method of Ardavan Shahrdar of finding remedies for viral or
bacterial miasmatic blocking layers.

–The layer method, remedies, and philosophy of Tinus Smits.

With High Regards,

Re: Psychosomatic Dimensions
Using Sholten’s method is an extension of the principle of classification, which has been used in homeopathy for years. It helps give meaning to the morass of information presented by the patient. Dr. Payrhuber’s results help confirm the validity of the method.

Sincerely,
C.Victor

I enjoyed Dr. Payrhuber’s Psychomatic Dimension article and cases.
His success with periodic table seems to require methodological precision as well as sound judgment. I applaud his pioneering spirit.

Dear Dr Bhatia

I want to personally thank you for your article addressing students. You mentioned quite a bit of information and suggestions for the new and green homeopath. I just graduated from a homeopathic medical college, and will be starting my practice soon. I am very nervous and I am trying to build my self confidence. I have decided that I must read the Organon as frequently as possible, because this is the very root of our practice. I found in college that we were taught alot of modern and contemporary methods of practice and this can be very frustrating when you try to apply these theories. It just doesn’t seem to work like how Sankaran seems to. So you are absolutely right, experience and learning from our own mistakes will help us to keep moving forward. Can you suggest a way of “finding a mentor”?? I really agree that as new practitioners a mentor can really be a source of inspiration and help. How do I go about finding one?

Please let me know if you need volunteer help for your website. I would gladly love to help. IN health and happiness, I wish you continued success

I just join forum couple of days ago. I go through ” A note for the student” which is very informative and eye opening.

Your advise is very valuable for me.

Thank you,

Dr. Imtiyaz Shaikh

——————————————-
I enjoyed the interview with Dr. Rajan, as much as I enjoy listening to the man himself. He is brilliant, and original, and he has a clear focus as to what he’s looking for. As I mentioned to him way back at a 2002 seminar in Mumbai, that he had opened up the entire Materia Medica of the Plant Kingdom with his insights into their possible applications.

But a lot of questions arise, that could not be easily answered through an interview like this. These are both philosophical and homeopathic. I think a furthur evolution of his method may need to address these very seriously, which I feel he will choose to do when he is ready. These are questions that are at the core of classical homeopathic philosophy and practice which has been very successful for those who have learned to master it with experience. These cannot be avoided or treated as inconsequential.

I would like to understand/grasp his new method as one more tool in my armamentarium. But I would be like to also be clear as to where is its scope is in my clinical practice that ranges from managing clinical emergencies and acutes, to chronic and miasmatic management, to a good sprinkling of people with severe psychological problems (and hence psychosomatic diseases) that simple counseling (or placebo!) cannot overcome.

Thank you for the interview that brings the Vital Sensation method in clearer focus for understanding and discussion.

Classical homeopathy was just the beginning, we cannot stay frozen at that level for the next centuries. Can we? Every method, school or doctrine has a starting point than evolve, improve due to new approaches and discoveries. Why is such a big problem that we have a new wave of thinking in homeopathy? The answer is, as always, the same: there are conservative people or people who see that their years of accumulation of knowledge (and position) will be wiped out. They feel threatened instead to be curious, they judge instead to try.

There is no debate here, students/practitioners will either be curious, attracted to the new methods (Sankaran and Scholten), or they will stay inside the frame of classical homeopathy. There is no doubt in my mind that Sankaran & Scholten methods will attract more and more adepts in the future, and the trend is visible
right now.

Dr. Sankaran and his method are very profound; some cases have only been solved with his approach. We need all ways of thinking to be successful in homeopathy!

Sankaran Feedback

Those people that hate his view towards homeopathy should try and accept his ideas for they are quite
educating and health wise they are useful.

We should learn not to critise other people’s opinion because is not easy to come by.

Dear Editor,
As a practitioner, I am fascinated by Dr. Sankaran’s work. In fact the first homeopathy book I ever read cover to cover like a novel I couldn’t put down was Soul of Remedies. It’s really sad that people either deify or vilify the works of great minds. Hahnemann suffered the same controversy; perhaps that proves the validity. There are many ways of practicing the art and the science of homeopathy and what should set us apart as healers is our ability to be as open minded about the field as we try to convince others to be. There is so much we don’t know and can’t learn in a lifetime that when someone steps up with new ideas and possibilities we should perk up and explore them…not dismissing all other ways but embracing the potential of something new. As an explorer, I send my regards and appreciation to Dr. Sankaran and all the others who make this such a rich field of endeavor.
Sincerely,

Dear Editor,

Having read the interview with Dr. Sankaran, I now understand why some practitioners would be at odds with his view. I am only slightly familiar with his work because I could only penetrate so far what construct he was trying to explain. I find the structure he proposes is unnecessarily complex, and unwieldy to practitioners who are seeking to streamline and demystify rather than complicate the homeopathic process.

With all due respect, his system quite likely works for those who take a more heady and left-brained approach to prescribing. There are many methods in use these days, not only his, which facilitate the art of homeopathy. As practitioners are individuals and the practice demands some degree of intuition, there is quite likely a method to suit everyone, within certain limits that don’t deviate to extremely from the original classical orientation.

As a budding practitioner, my success in treatment comes from looking underneath the patient’s words and symptoms.
I find this creative, intuitive focus is an aspect that is much misunderstood in treatment. I personally believe that tempering information ie. constructs with intutive insight can yield very positive and accurate results. As complex as we are as patients and practitioners, simplicity and refinement must ultimately guide our work and help us to get to the source of the patient’s imbalance, struggle or distress.

Thanks for the opportunity to comment.

Fully gone through the interview with Dr.Rajan Sankran.Dr.Rajan Sankran explained well his thoughts ,his new modern theories regarding treating cure ,his new approach for treatment .
But my opinion is different from it .We must not leave the old path laid down by old masters of homoeopathy.It is better to have one in hand than to groap in the dark.As Dr. Rajan Sankran himself explained clearly that we must study the basic fundamentals as well as the new modern principals side by side.
More over i think that it is not the common approach for every homoeopath to understand immediately his theory of kingdoms,miasms & experience.It will take a long time to reach up to that stage.
Dr.Ranjit Singh

Thank you so much for this. I can now share something with friends who aren’t Homeopaths but have heard me speak of Sankaran and his method. This is concise enough that those with little time may read it with good understanding.

IR. MY NAME IS ARUN RAJVANSHI, I AM FROM BIKANER. I AM KEEN OBSERVER AND A LEARNER OF HOMOEOPATHY SYSTEM. AS FAR I HAVE COME TO KNOW , HOMOEOPATHY IS THE ULTIMATE FUTURE IN ALL 359 PATHIES, PATIENTS ARE BEING LOOKED AFTER ALL OVER WORLD. THE REASON OF NOT GETTING ITS DUE RESPECT IN SOCIETY IS OUR OWN SYSTEM. WE, WETHER A MEDICINE MANUFACTRURER, A DOCTOR, A SHOP KEEPER, A PUBLISHER OR EVEN A THINKER OR WELL WISHER OF HOMOEOPATHY, DO NOT HAVE SELF CONFIDENCE AND COUNT OUR OWN SYSTEM ON A VERY LOW PROFILE. IN MY OPINION ONE MAJOR REASON BEHIND THIS IS THAT MAJOR %AGE OF HOMOEOPATHIC PERSON IS BELONGING TO THAT PART OF SOCIETY WHICH IS RUNNING TO ARRANGE FOR BREAD, BUTTER IS THEIR DREAM TO ACHIEVE. TO COME OUT OF THIS, WE NEED TO DO MIRACLES IN THIS FIELD, LIKE ADVANCED RESEARCH ON HEART (LIKE I HAVE DONE), CANCER, SKIN ETC…. IF WE RESTRICT PATIENTS FROM GOING FOR OPERATIONS AND OTHER AVOIDABLE CIRCUMSTANCES BY HELPING TO CURE THEM, WE MAY GENERATE CONFIDENCE IN THE MASS. ONE OTHER MAJOR PROBLEM IS LOW CONFIDENCE OF DOCTORS OF LOSING PATIENTS, DOCTORS THINK THAT IF THEY CHARGE MORE THAN 30 OR 50 RUPEES FOR SEVEN DAYS, FROM A PATIENT THEY WILL RUN AWAY AND NOT TAKE TREATMENT FROM THEM. AND SEEING AND HAVING THIS STIGMA IN MIND THEY DONT GO FOR COSTLY MEDICINES AND BY THIS CHOICE OF MEDICINES GETS LIMITED. IN CRONIC CASE WHERE HOMOEOPATHIC DOCTORS CAN HELP CURE THE PATIENT, THEY STRAIGHT AWAY TELL THE PATIENT TO GO TO ALOPATHIC DOCTORS, WHERE EVEN IF THEY DONT HAVE ANY THING TO DO TO CURE THE PATIENT THEY CARRY ON WITH THE PATIENTS TILL THEIR DEATH OR THEIR POCKETS GET EMPTIED. MY OBSERVATION SO FAR, HAS BEEN, IS THAT, IF, ONE HAS VISION, HE WILL HAVE SELF CONFIDENCE AND ONCE, IF, ONE GENERATES CONFIDENCE IN HIS OWN, HE MAY HELP TO BUILD A PERFECT FUTURE FOR HIS OWN AS WELL AS FOR HOMOEOPATHY. I APPEAL TO ALL HOMOEOPATHS TO RISE AND UPGRADE THIS VERY GENIUNE SYSTEM OF TREATMENT OR CURE…. LIKE CHANAKYA SAID TO HIS FOLLOWERS “UTHTHISHT BHARTIYA” A SAY TO ALL MY FRIENDS WHO READ THIS “UTHTHISHT HOMOPATHS” THANKS FOR READING AND IMPLEMENTING MY VISION.

I love Sankaran’s work. It is insightful and informative. Unfortunately, many homeopaths are short sighted that lack insight and depth of understanding.
We cannot help that. This is in a similar fashion what Scholten’s Element Theory is also facing. We can only present what we know and allow the CONSERVATISM to be. “Lack of understanding” is not a symptom that can be fixed, it is the quality of the soul that no one can change except themselves.
Thanks.

It was very interesting to read the interview with Dr Sankaran.
Though I have read his books and know a little of his method I know very little about the person and how he got to this on a human level. I found this useful to understand the roots of his work.

I always enjoy the newsletter and thank you for all the work you put into it.

Greetings

Susan

Homeopathy philosophies are not for me! I am extremely in love with god and it goes toward altering states of belief for me. The only thing I love about homeopathic remedies is the fact that the remedies are natural and can be healthy and healing. I am not into the emotional side or nature gods or meditation to whomever.
I am more of a naturopathic medicine individual. I know the remedies work and I think its great that gods gave us these remedies to help heal and possibly even remove problems altogether. I have a friend that used to have alot of allergies to everything and doctors say once an allergy, always an allergy. Hah! That’s a laugh!! She used naturalpathic medicines for allergy problems for just a few years, and now she has no problems with allergies at all. This is an amazing thing to me. It is a god thing. The medical field is a real money making racket. One that we all need to be very careful approaching as they line their pockets with money while they prophesy sickness to us that they say is permanent when they can be only temporary. All for the god of money. They tear down the immune system with pills so much to the point that your body cannot possibly live with out the pills any longer or you with definitely die!!

Lets allow our own bodies to cure themselves if possible with the help of naturalpathic medicine and stay away from doctors unless it is absolutely necessary for a surgery. Lets stay away from pills because they can lead to surgery. Doctors need to humble themselves anyway. Don’t they have enough money already. Lets help more human life to thrive and be healthy not help the medical profession to get richer and richer.

God bless this nation and take back what the locusts have eaten.

I read Dr.Sankarn’s interview. It was nice experience to understand his
method of practicing Homoeopathy.In my view to understand the level of patient is bit complicated thing;because patient may not know about himself or patient cannot express it correctly.so it might misguide the Homoeopath.

As Dr.Sankaran said remedy is going to dilute the state of patient wthen why to think of deeper levels.? We can try a remedy which is similar according to classical homeopathy or even better we need to perceive more about materia medica & ways of prescription

This just my attempt to understand Homeopathy better &not for criticizing
anybody.

Your’s sincerely

I have NO TIME to READ interviews, no matter how worthy the person being interviewed.

But I am very interested in what such an authority has to say and thereforev I would like to recommend AUDIO, for your readers.

I personally find this most attractive way (and believe this, very effective as well) to ABSORB what is being said.

P.s. You may know or “want to know”, WHN(WholeHealthNow.com has a vault of wealth of available audio’s of interviews with homeopaths)

Again, audio is great, whilst listening I continue doing something else, such as (for instance)…going through boring stuff online, and just think about iPods, MP3players, and the likes of me, working from home, where I also do DOMESTIC chores, equally boring.

Pps. Do not think that video is “it”, it can be as a tutorial, a course etc. Hearing what someone has to say, unless one is actually in a real seminar, or a one-on-one with the speaker is until now “far more elegant” (for the speaker) as well.

Ppps. I hope Hpathy can see above as constructive input and if for reasons unknown to me audio is not on, well so be it.

Yours faithfully

Dr Rajan interviewed by Dr Manish Bhatia is very eye opening to most homeopaths. It is obvious that he has been taking great care to notice the symptoms of the various cases he has mentioned, and has given very simple medicines to cure them.
I am happy to go through the cases, as I may be able to help someone by his method hopefully.

Wow,
This came at a good time. It has been awhile since I have studied and I am rusty. I can grasp Sankarans methods. It helps so much when he breaks down his mental processes in finding a remedy. I can follow and use those methods easily. I have never read such a clear answer about potency needs before. I sure have been offbase, based on his observations. I consider that valuable information that I will use in the future.

Dear Dr. Bhatia,
Thankyou very much for such a piece of wonderful knowledgeable interview that you undertook with Dr. R.S. I have read his book ‘spirit’ and always admire his capabilities. I have also heard him demonstrate a case in one seminar conducted by B. Jain some 12 years back or so at Delhi. Your interview has covered almost every aspect of homoeopathy and I appreciate your excellent journalism. Interview-taking is not a joke. Please accept my congratulations. I may write on this subject again when I have ‘thoroughly’ read it.Thanks once again.

Sankaran Interview
mindblowing!
though what was discussed went well o’er my naive head, must say that to have tutors like Clarke, Kent, Iyer, Sankaran. Wadia etc.. would be a real treat!

—————————————-

the philosophical approach of Dr. Sankaran is difficult to be comprehended by an ordinary homeopath. this is the way probably most great homeopaths treated. they could find the similium, though each had his individual their methods were not same. however since every homeopath is not a genius, this did not help in developing homeopathy for the masses. contrast this with Dr. Prafull Vijayakar’s method. he is much simpler and almost mathematical. he repertorise non disease symptoms- mentals and generals to find the similium. for examle he says that a person who is “conscentious for trifles” has this in his genetic code and he will require only those remedies which have this symptom. find 3 or 4 mental symptoms depending upon the miasm and a few general symptoms- thermals, thirst, appetite etc. and we have almost reached similium. if his method is so simple, we have to conduct a survey to find as to how
effective it is? probably bulk of the cases can be solved by his simple approach and Dr. Sankaran’s philosophical approach can be applied in more difficult cases.

Sankaran Interview

That was very informative and very engaging.
I always felt that a disturbed mind brought on physical ailments and the ailments in turn disturbed the mind further; so how to go about settling the person in body and mind !
This article deals with this concept and I am impressed.
Thank you.

DR. BAHTIA I READ WITH EARNEST YOU INTERVIEW .WHILE THE GOOD DOCTOR HAS PLENTY OF KNOWLEDGE I FOUND THAT BASICALL HE HAS NOT EVEN ATTEMPTED TO RE EVALUATE HIS VERY EARLY WRIRINGS AND DIAGNOSTIC IDEAS. I DO NOT AGREE TOTALLY WITH HIS LACK OF UNDERSTANDING OF THE MINERALS HE USED IN THE TX OF THE PATIENTS.I AM OF THE BELEIF THAT WE USE ALL FORMS OF MECICAL INTERVENTION NO MATTER WHAT IS AVAILABLE. eVEN IF IT IS ALLOPATHIC AND THERE IS NO HPATHY DOCTOR AVAILABLE OUR OBLIGATION IS TO THE pATIENT NOT WHAT PART OF THE WORLD WE ARE IN OR THE FORM OF MEDICINE WE CAN ACQUIRE.

I read David Little’s article with interest, and would like to raise only a couple of points with him since the length of the article precludes an equally lengthy reply.

But as he says ‘I have taken the time to write this rather lengthy discourse because I really care about Homoeopathy’, so do I and would therefore like to reply from a ‘post-modern’ or ‘neoclassical’ perspective. (see my article Homeopathy & Multiple Skills by C.J.Wansbrough published Homeopathic Links Volume17, Summer 2004 or website www.biolumanetics.net/tantalus)

My approach to homeopathy has always been empirical but I have spent time in research. David Little states and I quote him, ‘Every established classical system is associated with certain maxims that express its core values. The four cardinal aphorisms of traditional Homoeopathy are Similars Cure Similars, the single remedy, the minimum dose and the application of the potentized remedy. These cardinal principles are then applied a number of ways that can be tailored to suit a wide variety of clinical situations.’

I have no trouble or arguments with these maxims, they are strictly speaking the essential core of homeopathic practice. But I have no need to apply or even value Hahnemann’s perspective on how energy medicine works , we have quantum theory and physics for this. I personally apply the principle of similars by assuming it to be a number of frequencies the closer it is the more effective the medicine will be and surely this works solely on the principle of resonance (physics pure and simple),and I do not need to access except for purely historical reasons Samuel’s own views on this principle.

My own research using Potentised Sound , remedies which I made some 7 years ago and have led me to experiment with the effects of potentised sound leads to the simple conclusion that remedies represent complex frequencies and the closer the match to the individual the faster the effects of the remedy on that individual.

In other words individuals vary in terms of their band width (like broad band and narrow band on the internet) and some individuals have a narrow band of engagement and therefore need precise remedies, others have a broader band and therefore polycrests will work well on such individuals.

Single or complex remedies make little difference because the action of the remedy still acts as a single remedy as the wave forms of the complex remedy just create a new remedy, this has been observed using again single sonic remedies and combining in various ways.

The minimum dose just represents just enough of the correct resonance for that remedy to act on that individual.

The point I am making is that I do not need to value except for historical reasons Hahnemann’s complex views on how the vital force works etc they can be superseded very simply by physics.

The other aspect about his article is his discussion of the various methods of finding the remedy which is only covered by his first cardinal aphorism. Similar Cures similar ! This aspect or perspective ultimately involves the study of hermeneutics which can be quoted from the Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermeneutics) as denoting the study of theories and methods of the interpretation of all texts and systems of meaning. In other words the investigation and interpretation of a diseased state is an extraordinary complex multi-textual exercise which can be taken from a multitude of perspectives. Yet the reason why I care about homeopathy is that all such interpretations must still be judged by the criteria of effectiveness and speed of action and recovery. So there are ethical criteria by which you can judge a good or bad prescription and these empirical criteria are first and foremost how I judge the effects of a remedy. The closer the frequency match to the diseased individual the better the speed of recovery of that individual (I think as homeopaths we can all agree on this maxim ) which again entails only one approach to homeopathy !! finding the simillimum. In searching for this we have little option except to use the kingdom approach and this is not because it is fashionable but surely the only way to access the overwhelming amount of material which one has to play with if one wishes to find that frequency. It is an exercise and I quote from my article mentioned above

In this endless search for the best remedy we are now overwhelmed with the rapidly increasing pace of information which can be accessed at our fingertips through the internet.
Repertories are being endlessly updated
Computer programs are being perpetually changed
Countless new ‘provings’ are added to our repertoire every month
Welcome to the 21st Century, a century menaced by ‘information’. Our problems do not lie in accessing information, we have already lost that battle, but in processing information.

It is in processing information that we now need to study how to practice homeopathy which why I had no option except to pursue ‘The Kingdom Approach’ or why I have called that approach the ‘Neoclassical approach’ it was this or complete insanity!!

I would also like to make one further point because David Little obviously has a profound grasp of Samuel Hahnemann’s writings and other historical figures, I again do not have any problems studying them for historical purposes but we live in the 21 Century and so we must change and evolve with the present ‘zeitgeist’. This brings me to my final point in studying Hahnemann, we have inherited an enormous amount of baggage from his time especially the theory of miasms to which David refers to on many occasions but do we need them!!!

Samuel Hahnemann had and prescribed sixty remedies when they did not work he used miasmatic theory, the Neoclassical homeopaths do not seem to refer very much to miasmatic prescribing and in my own practice a remedy is a frequency, that remedy works why do we even need miasmatic theory !!!
