What to expect in Follow-up?
When the patient returns after a period of time decided by you: he may be better, not-better or Status Quo
If he is better, you may not prescribe for him again till such a period that he remains in a good state or is steadily improving
If he isnt better, you will be redirected to rubric selection and will have to make a payment again.
For Status quo, you may wait or change his remedy, at your sole discretion.
How to decide Dosage?
The recommended remedy must be ordered from an officially certified homeopathic pharmacy only. Only 3 doses of the suggested remedy to be taken, one dose every 8 hours.. and thats it! Thats what senior classical homeopaths around the world do. If you feel comfortable, only one dose may be enough but its a bit risky in the sense that the patient may not take it properly, especially in pediatric cases. No, further repetitions. You must wait till the patient responds to the dose/s given. Every case needs individual attention and a different waiting period before they act. Do consult Dr. Khedekar or his team whenever required. Please ask your patient not to touch the remedies by hand at all times. Please store or keep the remedy in a hygienic, cool and dark place away from strong odors. Remedy to be taken sub-lingually only in whichever form solid or liquid. Please do not eat or drink anything 10 minutes before or after the remedy.
What are the general Dos and don'ts after a remedy is prescribed?
Once you begin with the treatment for your patient, the following instructions must be followed carefully for optimum results by your patient.
Use non medicated soap and shampoo. Discard use of anti-dandruff shampoo. Avoid using new unfamiliar medicated products like after shave, toothpaste so as to not to disturb biochemical balance. The existing tooth paste is fine as long as it has no or minimal menthol content. Any other form of menthol is strongly recommended to be discontinued.
Discontinue use of any self medication like aloe vera products, herbal and ayurvedic medicines, wheat grass, herbal teas, green teas, etc taken as self medication.
Do not apply mehendi (heena) on hands, feet and hair. Hair dye or color if used may be applied 1cm away from scalp, Do not touch hair colour on skin of head.
Avoid camphor in every form, thats the biggest antidote to homeopathic remedies.
Stop usage of the following on the skin:
- Perfumes, deodorants, anti perspirants, medicated powders, you may wear perfumes on your outer clothes as long as they dont come in to contact with your skin during perspiration.
- Anti fungal creams/ tubes, anti bacterials.
- Avoid applying antiseptics as first aid for minor cuts, bruises, burns. A mild soap may be temporarily applied and washed off with water. So that its just enough to keep the affected and surrounding area clean.
- Any ear drops, nose drops, eye drops. Sterile water or neutral oils may be used. Steam inhalation may be done when required
In case of minor fevers paracetamol may be taken under guidance of a physician.
Do not use any other Homoeopathic or Biochemic medicine along with the prescribed remedy
Avoid menthol and menthol based products like chewing gums, etc.
Avoid alternative therapies like use of gemstones for good fortune, magnet therapy, yoga to stimulate specific organs/ glands (yoga that is aimed at the entire body holistically may be continued) acupuncture, acupressure, hydrotherapy
Avoid repetitive unnecessary vaccinations especially newer ones for influenza etc
Please consult a physician before doing any investigations esp: MRI, CT, X- ray
In case of any advice required for new symptoms appearing: please contact at the clinic during working hours.
What is this app based on?
Samuel Hahnemann (the discoverer of Homeopathy) had always said that Homoeopathy is an art and science. Just like any art, skill improves over a period of time with practice. However, it is equally important that a Homoeopath is provided with apt tools in the form of Materia Medica and Repertory. A Materia Medica provides information about the innumerous drugs proved.
These are then compiled in the form of Repertories for easy
reference. Thus, only if one knows Materia Medica well, will he know how to proceed to next step of
using a Repertory and finally making a prescription.
Dr. Hahnemann wrote his Materia Medica Pura based solely on Drug Provings and never blindly copied
what was documented by others via assumptions and speculations. Later, many of his followers
followed his footsteps and a large number of Materia Medicas came into existence. This trend is
somewhat ongoing even now, but unfortunately the style has shifted from pure documented facts to
the author’s own imagination and fancies. Thus, the authenticity can be doubtful.
Students of Homoeopathy are fascinated, yet endlessly groping in the vast amount of knowledge
available in our books on Materia Medica. We fail to obtain results via these Materia Medicas because
most of them are not easy to comprehend and neither are they handy, concise and user friendly.
Books are too voluminous and elaborate and as a result the main core of the remedy is somewhere
lost in the exhaustive literature. On the other extreme, there are those Materia Medicas that merely
name disease diagnosis which is of least importance. Hence a profusion of scholarly tomes exists, but
these may be considered only as academic exercises. There has always been a dearth of information
available to the Homoeopath.
Students who have had the opportunity of evolving under Dr. Khedekar’s guidance have always
enormously benefited from the precious, clinical hints and tips he has time and again taught whilst
treating patients. It was worthwhile to gather all the topics that he taught during seminars and make
a compilation of the same. He penned down these valuable thoughts, so that even more
Homoeopaths could benefit to the fullest. This book is exclusively written from clinical experiences and
Repertories, a reverse Materia Medica, so to say.
Layout of book in the app:
Dr. Khedekar’s idea was to put forth in brief a succinct coalescence of the peculiar, characteristic signs
and symptoms of a remedy; written as ‘Entry Points’
, meaning- these points when covered by a
case, must make us think of the remedy.
A classification according to genetic defenses
makes us appreciate the depth and pace
of each remedy. It makes it very easy to understand how so many innumerous and at times contrary
symptoms can exist in a single remedy. Eg. The remedy prepared from cuttle-fish: Sepia has the
symptom “full of cares and worries”- in its Psoric (Sensitivity) expression and “Indfference”- in its
Syphilitic (Destruction) expression.
Possibly, the most enlightening concept is the ‘Ruling in’ and ‘Ruling out’
section within each drug.
One cannot possibly go wrong if he follows this thumb rule once he has narrowed down to a group of
remedies for the final prescription. The book shows how there is a simple, but complete and scientific
rationale behind the selection of each remedy.
This book has helped in beautifully depicting how each remedy has a character, a NUCLEUS
remains unchanged, irrespective of Miasmatic expression. To save the whole, the body continuously
defends itself by the genetic defenses, but its core remains the same, which is unmistakably and only
perceived by each remedy’s Sensitivity and Reaction
. This technique helps understand the
genome, [what is to be cured in disease] and shows the authentic way to decode it, without spending
a futile fortune to decipher a gene. Dr. Khedekar has thus succeeded in lifting the shrouds of mystique
surrounding Homoeopathic prescription making.
Dr. Khedekar has now taken a giant leap further in the practical application of this concise and precise
book. At the Imperial School of Homoeopathy, Belgrade, he, (along with his personally trained
teachers) has personally groomed each student on how case taking and prescription making should
not be dreaded and it is in fact quick and scientific once one knows what to look for in a case. This is
taught with live case taking in classroom followed by case solving and presentation of case. He has
taken this step as he firmly believes in the age old Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed
him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime!”
Some key concepts that have been used in this book at the beginning of every remedy:
Extroverted/ Introverted: this in every remedy has been of the most importance as this gives us the
innate behaviour of the individual. Whether this constitution talks on himself or has to be pushed.
Here are some clinical presentations for extroverted constitutions:
- People who start talking by themselves.
- People who talk more than the doctor.
- People who do not allow the doctor to talk.
- People who do not need introduction.
- People who tell their story or history without much probing.
- People who elaborate their answers.
- People who laugh, joke and make atmosphere lively.
- People who exaggerate their problems and/or stories.
- People who do not wait for your answer.
- People who are excited while talking.
Here are some clinical presentations for introverted constitutions:
- Grief undemonstrative
- Anger suppressed.
- Quiet disposition
- Talk indisposed to
Here are the clinical presentations for constitutions who we consider as diligent:<
The ones who do not have these qualities are non- diligent
Here are the characters which are present in Hot constitutions:
- Those persons who can tolerate cold better.
- They are those constitutions which feel more of heat.
- People who Cannot tolerate more of heat.
- Those persons who feel better in winters and cool temperature.Cannot remain without fan
and/or A.C. in summers.Need fan and/or A.C. in summers.
- Wake up from sleep if light goes off in summers.
- People who feel uncomfortable in summers. People who love winters.
Here are the characters which are present in Chilly constitutions:
- Those persons who can tolerate heat better.
- They are those constitutions which feel more of cold. Those people who Cannot tolerate more of cold.
- They feel better in summers and warm temperature.
- Those persons who can remain without fan and/or A.C. in summers.
- They do not need fan and/or A.C. in summers.They do not wake up from sleep if light goes
off in summers.
- They do not feel much uncomfortable in summers. Those people who love summers.
A very important quality giving us insight in to the genetic mechanism of
maintaining the water balance in a constitution, which is a very intricate and complex mechanism.
Water being the most important element in the human body. 75% of the body is nothing but simple
water! So its most important to understand whether someone is thirsty or thirstless, without which, is
impossible to come to his similimum.
Who is Dr. Shreepad Khedekar?
Dr. Shreepad Khedekar’s tryst with Homoeopathy is indeed unique and worth mentioning. Khedekar
as a young boy was always interested in sports and had an undying passion for Cricket. Homoeopathy
was not his first choice as a career option. It was just a stroke of luck! His initial years at medical
school were spent in bewilderment as to what this mysterious Homoeopathy is all about. However, his
openness to new ideas and clarity of concepts made him stand apart from his contemporaries and
there was no looking behind ever since.
Dr. Khedekar has always been most grateful to his ever inspiring teachers who have chiseled his mind
and guided him through his learning days. Dr. Mrs. A. M. Shaikh was the one who etched the word
Homoeopathy in his mind and her teachings made the deepest impact on his mind. This in turn
encouraged him to assist and learn under Dr. Prasad Patil where for the first time he came out of the
books and got to see the clinical side of patient care and a sound basic foundation was laid. He later
assisted Late Dr. B. M. Pai who took him a step further from basic clinical care to specializations. Dr.
Vijayakar certainly is credited for inculcating faith in him that contrary to beliefs, Homoeopathy really
does work. With showers of blessings from all his teachers, Dr. Khedekar commenced his own private
practice soon after completion of his master’s
degree. But his thirst for knowledge could never be
quenched. He now wanted to go deeper and learn Homoeopathy with relation to existing ideas on
Genetics. In between his busy practice he would meet up with Dr. Apte, Head of Dept. of Genetics,
Bombay Hospital to exchange views on Genetics. Dr. Khedekar’s enthusiasm went low as Genetics
ultimately only offers replacement and not cures. However his approach to deep and incurable cases
got even more accurate and result rates soared to new heights.
During this process he wrote 2 books, first the ‘ACSOTROM: a comparative study of the rubrics of
MIND’ which is a compilation of all the mind rubrics from repertory with their most indicated remedies
and their comparison. This was published by Indian Books Periodicals and Publishers (IBPP) in New
Delhi. Dr. Khedekar did this compilation when he was in the first year of his Masters degree course in
Belgaum, Karnataka. When his contemporaries were studying and struggling to understand the
construction of repertory, he wrote one for the practitioners. This was well accepted in the practitioner
league and won him many laurels. Truly a man ahead of his generation. And second, ‘Rubrics and
Miasms’ which came in a soft copy where the mind rubrics were explained with their miasmatic
background. And now he has evolved to a new level of writing, which is his own materia medica
based on his clinical experiences.
Dr. Khedekar undoubtedly is a brilliant doctor and his teaching skills too are certainly at par. His truly
amazing quality is that he very willingly shares all of his knowledge, ideas and vast experience with his
contemporaries and students alike. His lectures are engrossing and leave an impact of a lifetime. His
first seminar was in Switzerland followed by several seminars in Belgrade, Croatia, Germany and
India. Next seminar scheduled this year is in London. He is a man on a mission to spread Hahnemann’s teachings to as many as possible and to bring Homoeopathy at the top of the pedestal the only place it deserves to be!
Apart from the homeopathic practice Dr. Khedekar’s taste for the finer things in life is reflected in his
passion for collecting high precision watches, pens and other antiquities like porcelain and cut glass.
He also has a passion for superbikes and high-speed cars.
Dr. Khedekar has never been fully satisfied by just conducting seminars as he believes that seminars
certainly can make one get faith in Homoeopathy but by merely attending seminars one cannot make
a good Homoeopath. To become a good Homoeopath one must not just gather tit bits from seminars.
He thus decided to establish a school where Homoeopaths can be groomed so well that they can
tackle any case, known or unknown, diagnosed or undiagnosed, with ease and confidence.
During various seminars he saw that doctors in Serbia were most enthusiastic and went out of their
way to learn more and more about Homoeopathy. He saw this country as a very fertile soil where the
future of Homoeopathy could get brighter and better day by day due to many like minded doctors.
Hence, the first batch of Imperial School of Homoeopathy was established here in March 2009 during
his 12th trip to Serbia in 4 years. He brought along with him, his very able and efficient team of
personally trained doctor-teachers from India. He alone could never give enough time to the school
considering his prior commitments and established practice in Bombay, India.
Dr. Khedekar always envisioned opening a school but was waiting for the right time and place to
implement his plan. The purpose behind this master plan was to generate fully capable physicians
who aren’t shaken up by any diagnosis or pathologies and are not afraid of any so called ‘incurable’
The School plan is further divided into three parts:
1st part – Knowledge of Human body, physiology.
Basic principles of Homoeopathy
Scope and Limitations
2nd part – Repertory: Rubrics- from patient’s language
Philosophy by Stalwarts- Dr. Kent, Boger, Boeingausen
3rd part – Practical: application of part 1 and 2
Live case taking in classroom
Materia Medica live
His school has been very well received by Doctors as well as patients in Serbia. People who have
helped him patronize the school have been none other than His Excellency, Ajay Swarup the
Ambassador to Serbia from India who very actively participates in all the school activities along with
his benevolent wife Mrs. Chanda Swarup who are ardent advocators of Homeopathy. The very
famous pop singer Brena is a big fan of Dr. Khedekar and Homoeopathy and talks about the miracles
by Homoeopathy in several magazine interviews. Television channels have also aired several of Dr.
Khedekar’s interviews and helped bring about awareness of the marvels of Homoeopathy. Journalist
Vesna Boskov continues to write several articles and spread the word to every nook and corner. Dr.
Slobodanka Kasikovic has stood behind him like his guardian, always. Thus, there is nothing stopping
Dr. Khedekar’s noble intentions and certainly sky is the limit for someone as gifted as he!

What is Homeopathy? Is it Mathematical?
It is very accurately said by the wise, “After the darkest night, comes the brightest dawn!” At a time
when medical practice was at its worst, came the dawn of Homoeopathy, around 250 years ago.
Prevailing systems of medicine at that time were Allopathy, Antipathy, Ayurveda, Isopathy,
Tautopathy, Chinese medicine, Egyptian medicine and many more. But sadly, none seemed to cure;
they only temporarily managed to control a few prominent symptoms here and there.
Homoeopathy is the youngest and the latest Science of Therapeutics.
It was discovered by our savior Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who in his times, was in search of a science
based on sound principles. He, like his contemporaries was not getting satisfactory results in his
medical practice. He thus gave up his prestigious M.D. degree, stopped his clinical practice and took
up work as a translator to earn a living. He came across a statement that changed the shape of things
to come. William Cullen’s Materia Medica stated, “Cinchona can cure Malaria because it is bitter.”
Hahnemann was a man who never accepted things without pondering and finding logical reasoning
himself. He took the juice of the bark himself to observe its effects. To his surprise, he started to
develop malaria like symptoms of chill, heat and sweating. Thus he re-discovered the much needed
Universal law that the disease curing power of a substance is due to its disease producing power.
Sadly, majority of today’s Homoeopaths have not been able to tap the full potential of this wonderful
science based on rock solid, unshakable principles. Like every Law, which is Universal and
Mathematical, Homoeopathy too is a complete science which cannot fail when applied correctly. This
is because the human body is Mathematics of kinesis. Even then, the scope of Homoeopathy is
restricted to mere allergies, skin eczemas, acidity etc. Myths like “Homoeopathy acts slowly, it does
not work in deep pathologies, we cannot use it in acute and critical conditions” still exist. It is believed
to be a mystic and unscientific alternative mode of treatment. It is indeed a shame that the
Homoeopaths are so unsure of themselves that they always seem to resort to Allopathy especially
when a family member is unwell, as they do not want to take a risk and venture into something so
unsure and uncertain to them. Time and again, it is always the Homoeopath, not Homoeopathy that
The reason behind the failures of all of the above is one and the same. Homoeopaths have not fully
understood the great Hahnemann and his teachings. He wrote his original, most logical ideas and
principles to be followed by physicians in his handbook ‘Organon of Medicine’. This 250 year old book
is based on eternal laws that hold true today and will hold true for centuries to come. It is rightly
called ‘Organon of Medicine’ and not Organon of Homoeopathic Medicine because any real cure by
medicine has ever witnessed would be in accordance to these principles.
Hahnemann was undoubtedly a man ahead of his times. He was a man of vision. He has spoken of
three main points to be understood and practiced by all physicians:
1) Law of Cure:
Every physician must aim at restoration
of health of the patient by
stimulating the patient’s own immune system.
2) Disease is because of a process called as Miasm.
Miasm is a defect in the defense
mechanism of the body, namely defect in the three modes of defense of each and every cell
and thus body as a whole – 3 modes of defense are sensitivity, construction, destruction
3) Treat the Man in Disease and not the Disease in Man.
Disease is nothing but the end
product of the defenses of body. It is the language of the body. So to cure or to restore,
TREAT THE MAN and he will cure himself.
His Organon of medicine speaks of these in astounding detail for clear understanding. Organon is
written in the form of Aphorisms; concise original paragraphs that have a profound meaning of their
own. They also have a link of thought with the preceding and subsequent Aphorisms.
§1. The physician’s high and only mission is to restore the sick to health, to cure, as it is termed
Hahnemann calls it a mission which is an ongoing process, a duty, the purpose for which one is
born. He does not use words like aim, goal, target which unlike a mission are fulfilled after
achieving just for once.
He uses the word restore because he does not want physicians to aim at merely targeting the most
prominent symptom. He does not make a statement like- make patient symptom free or cure the
disease or relieve the suffering. He talks of achieving the highest level of restoration to previous
healthy state and not just mere absence of disease condition. The word restore clearly explains, that
what is shifted must be reinstated. Restoration should ideally be in reverse order of progress of
What are the principles of Homeopathy?
To aid a physician in achieving his mission, he must follow these Seven Cardinal Principles which are
the backbone of Homoeopathy
1) Law of Similia:
Hahnemann distinctly declares that the phenomenon of cure entirely
depends upon this law. "A weaker dynamic affection is permanently extinguished in the living
organism by a stronger one, if the latter (whilst differing in kind) is very similar to the former
in its manifestations."
2) Law of Simplex:
Hahnemann states, 'Only one, single, simple remedy should be
administered to the patient at one time'.
3) Law of Minimum:
'The quantity of action necessary to affect any change in the nature is the
least possible, an infinitesimal'. An extremely small dynamic dose of Homoeopathic medicine
is sufficient to stimulate the immune system of an individual. For the body to cure its grossest
4) Doctrine of Drug Proving:
Drug proving is a systemic investigation and evaluation of the
disease producing power of a substance on healthy human beings of both sexes, different age
groups and people from different places.
5) Theory of Chronic disease:
Hahnemann frequently noticed that in spite of giving a remedy
based on above principles, patients’ complaints kept on returning after an interval. He thus
concluded that there must be something lurking in the background. He termed this as Miasm.
He focused at tackling this so that health could be restored.
6) Theory of Vital Force:
'The material organism without the vital force is capable of no
sensation, no function, no self preservation; it derives all sensations and performs all
functions of life solely by means of the immaterial being - the vital force which stimulates the
organism in health and disease'.
7) Doctrine of Drug Dynamisation:
As stated above in Law of Minimum, minimum stimulus is
required to stimulate immune system. He reasoned that the dose was too large and hence
started diluting the drug on a definite scale. He found to his surprise that the results obtained
were much better
What is the difference between Homeopathy and Allopathy?
It is clear that Homoeopathic approach is extremely different from Allopathic approach. Also, it is
interesting to note how Homoeopathy and Allopathy are opposite at each and every step:
Allopathy aims at treating Disease in Man, whereas Homoeopathy aims at treating
Man in Disease.
Allopaths use crude material doses, use mixture of various medicines and
administer drug in the form of multiple doses at fixed intervals. Vice versa, Homoeopaths give single,
simple drug in dynamic dose with minimum repetition
In history taking
- Allopaths’ case taking revolves around the particular symptom, in trying to get a
diagnosis and specifically treating it. They give least importance to general parameters like stamina,
sleep, appetite as those do not help in their prescription. Homoeopaths on the other hand give little
importance to particulars and focus more on alterations in general state of well being.
In follow up
- Likewise, even in follow up, Allopath concentrates on particulars, whereas Homoeopath
concentrates on generals.
Allopathy and Homoeopathy differ at each and every step. It would be an insult to Homoeopathy if a
Homoeopath tries to practice by Allopathic principles and give specifics for disease conditions like
belladonna for headaches, bryonia for joint pains and arnica for injuries. Metaphorically speaking, it
would be like providing a soldier technologically ultra modern weapons to fight the enemy. Yet, the
soldier uses this weapon just like a bamboo stick to hit the enemy. He is unable to appreciate and
extract full potential of the wonderful weapon gifted to him.
More important than making a Homoeopathic prescription is to follow what happens after prescribing.
A good Homoeopathic remedy will always restore health in a particular pattern. The deeper
pathologies must improve first, followed by less destructive pathologies. More important systems must
improve first, followed by comparatively lesser important organs and systems. This pattern is due to
sequence in stimulation of morphogenetic gradients as discovered by Gustafson, Woolpart and
Wadington. To fully understand why these gradients exist in this particular pattern, a sound
knowledge on how an embryo is developed in womb is of prime importance.
What can you achieve using KES?
(or, WHAT HOMOEOPATHS ARE CAPABLE OF DOING)
It is not difficult to prescribe a remedy. The difficult part comes later on when the physician has to
judge the patient’s reaction to the given remedy. He has to observe and see if he has succeeded in
RESTORATION of the sick to health. Mere disappearance of the physical complaints does not ensure a
There is a wonderful pattern of events that takes place after a good remedy is prescribed. On the
physical level, the pathology goes from a more destructive to a less destructive level. There is a shift
of disease from more important organs to lesser important organs. There are signs of elimination from
body. On the mental level, the way of thinking, handling situations, reactions, emotions- all seem to
be more in balance. A keen observer not only observes the above improvements in mental and
physical health, but also changes for the better in the social sphere. Many a times the patient says,
“This medicine has got me good luck!” but we being ignorant brush it off as patient’s imagination.
This is because we ourselves are incapable of understanding the potential that a Similimum has, to
change the life of a person for the better. Many a times after a good remedy, the individual finds a
job, or gets a promotion which was long overdue. Social and family issues get sorted out. Single
people find a partner. The individual escapes with minor cuts and bruises from accidents that prove
fatal to others. This is neither coincidental nor magical. It is mathematical and in accordance to laws
of quantum physics.
Hahnemann quotes in Aphorism 9 that in the healthy condition of man, Vital Force maintains the
functions of body in complete harmony so that our indwelling, reason gifted mind can freely employ
this healthy instrument for the HIGHER PURPOSE of existence. A person must do what he is born to
do. A writer must write, a musician must make music. Restoration of health should result in progress
of the individual. Homoeopathy thus is truly a holistic science capable of giving nothing but the best.
Interestingly, Dr. Khedekar’s mother is a teacher and an ardent fan of Yoga. Yoga refers to traditional
physical and mental disciplines originating in India. It is a sister science of the 5000 year old
Ayurveda. Dr. Khedekar’s mother and he occasionally have discussions about this science of Yoga. His
mother would always state that Yoga aims at bringing the 7 chakras of body in a state of balance. Dr.
Khedekar valued this concept as he could correlate it with Homoeopathy. He always believed that like
Homoeopathy, Ayurveda too is a Complete science and just like Homoeopathy, Ayurveda has not been
completely understood! Ayurveda also talks about ‘similar cures similar’ in its scriptures. Only
difference is that Ayurveda could not build an entire system of medicine based only on the concept of
Dr. Khedekar adapted the approach of Yoga in order to make understanding of follow ups better and
rise to a new level. It is a correlation of the already established two holistic sciences. For an individual
to progress, he must go through these 7 stages. As he crosses each stage he evolves and reaches a
higher level. With each level, becomes more in tune with himself and becomes capable of thinking big,
thinking out of the box so to say. He is able to easily express his ideas and is more open to receiving
inputs from people around him. This is the sure and only way that leads to the path of progress, for
the individual and for mankind as a whole.
Dr. Khedekar is currently working on this subject and this publication is eagerly awaited!
WHAT CAN CAUSE DISEASE and its symptoms?
In order to understand the concept of a disease and what factors can cause disease, firstly, we must
understand what is concept of health.
World Health Organization (WHO) modified the definition of Health in 1948 as, "A state of complete
physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. " However,
majority of today's physicians do not get even close to achieving this standard of cure for their
patients. The entire focus is on physical well-being and only physical symptoms are treated
symptomatically. Only in cases of psychiatry the mental well-being is given due importance. Concept
of social well-being is almost non-existent!
This ignorance stems from lack of understanding and appreciating the human body's Immune System
and its expressions.
Study of Immune System is called Immunology. Immunology is defined as the study of body's system
of defense against disease causing agents and disorders in that system's functioning. When the
human body is in harmony and equilibrium, it provides immunity. This means that all cells of body, all
systems and its biochemistry are functioning in a state of balance.
It is interesting to note that 75% of the human body is made up of proteins, viz. hormones,
secretions, DNA, neurotransmitters, catalysts, immunoglobulins. So essentially, any imbalance in
proteins leads to imbalance in biochemistry and drops the immunity of the individual.
Today's genetic scientists are shifting their focus from Genomics to Proteomics as now they are able
to understand that even though Gene makes a man, the expression of the man is due to the proteins.
Genetic expression of each is due to protein expression. For example, a person's extrovertedness or
introvertedness corresponds to whether his genes are more or less expressive. This holds true in each
and every cell in that individual. Thus, expression of genes on mind, body and every cell will be same.
Innate characteristics like a person's defense, his speed, natural urges, desires, attachments, will,
intellect, morals, physical and mental changes, cosmic affections, sensitivity, tolerance are similarly
due to gene expression and must be taken into consideration.
Our master Hahnemann has spoken about this very same Proteomics 250 years ago in his Organon
under Aphorism 5. He says that utmost importance must be given to what is the cause of disease; it
could be a mental or a physical factor that causes a protein imbalance in the body. In fact, any
emotion out of proportion; either in excess or less causes imbalance. A particular neurotransmitter
related to an emotion say Dopamine will drop in case of Depression. As a result the homoeostasis of
neurotransmitters will go off balance. Similar condition is seen when a vaccine is given, certain
immunoglobulin levels rise at the cost of others causing a disturbance. Other agents that cause
protein imbalance in a similar manner are bacterial, viral and fungal infections, antibiotics, allopathic
medicines, de-worming pills, insect and animal bite, physical, chemical or thermal trauma, specific
vibrations, genetic malsynthesis, artificial hormones, altered electric potential etc.
Above factors cause disease, that is, they cause imbalance in Immune system which shows a defense
in any of these three forms. Thus disease is nothing but defense of the body.
Disease (for example) will be expressed as abnormal -
Mental- irritability, sensitivity, nervousness, anxiety, apprehension
Physical- inflammation, sensitivity or withdrawal
Mental- haughty, deceitful, sly, corrupt, hiding, façade, show, ornamentation, foppish, foolish,
Physical- growth increased, growth decreased, slow growing tumors
Mental- hatred, cruelty, want of morals, hysterical
Physical- necrosis, gangrene
