Homeopathy - What is it? Part 5 (Teacher: Michael)

The homeopathic physician never looks for a specific remedy to cure all cases of a named disease. He realises that it is impossible, because individuals differ so much one from another in their reactions to apparently the same infection. He is always in search of the individual remedy that fits that particular person at that particular time.

What about chronic illnesses? In treating much of chronic illness nowadays, the ordinary physician tends rather to concentrate on suppressing or masking the most prominent symptom of his patient. For example, the use of cortisone in rheumatoid arthritis, although it relieves the pain, is by no means a curative treatment. It also has the great disadvantage of possibly setting up some other complaint by reason of so-called side effects. Indeed, much of modern medicine is becoming more and more a system of suppression - putting the dust under the mat - and subjecting patients to what some physicians regard as unnecessary risks, bearing in mind that many or most of these modern remedies not cure but merely relieve.

From these statements one must not the idea that the sulphonamides and antibiotics are not of value. They are of great value if the physician knows of nothing better. The homeopathic physician, however, will occasionally use of them, but only in very severe illnesses such as for example, meningitis, where the risk to life or of permanent disability is so very urgent that he would combine his homeopathically remedy with the use of the requisite antibiotic.
