Topic of Discussion: Deep Pathological cases; Dissociation technique, its indication, advantage and application in cases. Reassessment of cases: When and How
In the final session* of the 3rd season of the “Magic in Basic” workshop, by Drs. Dinesh and Urvi Chauhan, conducted by their not-for-profit organization “Athato Brahma Jigyasa Foundation” (ABJF), the sophistic charisma of the human centric, individualized approach of the Case Witnessing Process came alive in its true essence. We saw the melodrama of difficult cases, rational patients and cases with structural pathologies simplified with the help of the scientific, step by step approach of the Case Witnessing Process and the Dissociation technique. While it was fascinating to witness Herring’s law of cure come alive during the case witnessing process in the form of exteriorization happening in cases, what was equally mesmerizing, was to observe the healing offered by the case witnessing, both for the patient and the physician during the case interview!
Everyone let go of their own hesitancy and made the session very practical and application oriented, asking all possible questions about their difficult cases, which were then answered by Dr. Chauhan to their satisfaction.
In this session the students and practitioners from every corner of the country viz. Vishakhapatnam, Tamilnadu, Baroda, Ahmadabad, Aanad, Nagar, Nashik, Mumbai, Pune, and Goa amalgamated to imagine that Athato Brahma Jigyasa is capable of following its vision of spreading roots of the Homoeopathic tree all over India, and making available a wholesome learning for the students and practitioners who are eager to learn and practice true classical homoeopathy on a not-for profit base.
In the Two-day session a total of four video cases with their respective follow ups were discussed in relation to the above mentioned topics.
The case of Eczema came with diverse learning opportunity. How to tackle the case that keeps intellectualizing and giving reasoning to everything. The use of the Dissociation technique in such cases to reach their vital core was followed well through this case. Also, this case proved to be a classic example of Herring’s law of cure coming alive in a case interview; we saw homoeopathic aggravation happening at one junction of the case, followed by healing amelioration at another junction! In which patients such exteriorization happens, in what form it happens and the relation of its appearance with respect to the patient’s level of experience were discussed by Dr. Chauhan.
The next case shown by Dr. Chauhan was of a little girl (8 yrs) with a benign tumor in the Frontal lobe of her brain. The challenge in the case was the unique style of case presentation; the girl was observed to be loquacious and spoke extensively about trivial issues of her life which proved to be the real unique feature about the child, because for any questions that were being asked to her, her answer would reflect this unique pattern. The Passive phase of the case really helped to understand this unique pattern of the child (to talk extensively about trivial matters). It was crystal clear in the case that if the Passive phase was not allowed, it was easy to miss the case.
Again, the lessons offered by the case were multifocal; the individualistic expression at the holistic level may come in the form of a unique pattern and not always as Sensation/non-verbal gesture; the importance of the three phases of case witnessing to capture such a unique pattern; the importance of the mother’s pregnancy history to explore unique energy patterns of child; the importance of repertorisation to be in sync with the core understanding of the patient (prioritizing individualistic expression at the holistic level during rubric formation). The girl was cured with Lachesis!
In, the third case, the lady suffered from Endometriosis. In this case, Visualization technique of Dissociation was used to crack the case to the core.
From this case we learned which case demands a particular case witnessing technique; in which phase of the case to apply it; which technique, and how to use the technique in a given case to reach the deepest core with ease and success. The lady responded wonderfully to Lithium Muriaticum.
The last case shown by Dr. Chauhan suffered from migraine and the patient received and responded to his simillimum DNA. The case again emerged to be a unique one, because he did not speak of the vital sensation or experience during the entire case. The underlying perception in every life situation became the focus that lead to Mind-Body connection and to the simillimum.
Potency selection, Usage of LM potency in a case, with relation to the pathology (reversible or irreversible), and level of experience of the patient were discussed in detail.
Hence, the journey that we left at the second session of this series was extended further, and taken to a different height. What made the entire show more interesting, was witnessing the individualized difficulty each case carried, and the individual solution provided by the flexible tenor of the case witnessing and its three steps… with utter scientificity, simplicity and uniqueness. It was simple to understand that when the case witnessing process came to the rescue, it became easy to grasp what is the difficult in a case, how great is the difficulty and how to rectify the difficulty… unlocking the door to the individualistic expression at the holistic level of the patient.
When similar energies meet at a common point, a beautiful pattern of energy field is created which leads everyone into a holistically healing experience; this session proved to be one such platform for a holistic experience for everyone. The group departed with the promise to keep up the qualitative work and to keep discussing their doubts and difficulties. This will allow us to come up with solutions that make practice of Homoeopathy a true healing art for the patient and the practitioner together, so that the higher purpose of existence is fulfilled.
