In today’s conventional practice, the physician spends very little time with the patient. It is of utmost importance that the doctor gives a patient hearing to the person ailing, spends some time to discuss about his illness and understands the suffering of the individual seeking treatment.
Homeopathy is a holistic science, which renders cure and healing, rather than mere alleviation of disease, and takes into consideration the minutest details of the ailing person. In order to do this, a homeopathic physician needs to spend a substantial amount of time with the patient and understand several aspects about him and his life.
During the process of homeopathic case taking, he not only enquires about the physical ailments in detail but also questions about his general state of health, illnesses in the past and family, his life situation, anxieties and stress, fears, dreams etc. This helps the physician to perceive the diseased person in totality, thereby enabling him to find the right homeopathic Similimum for the patient. It also helps the patient to repose trust in his physician and develops a good rapport with him.
As Homoeopathy treats the individual as whole and not different parts of his body, the benefits of such a treatment are ten folds.
Individuals under the treatment experience a general sense of well-being. They feel better in their mind as well as the body and this has a profound effect on their day-to-day life. People under regular homeopathic treatment develop a good immunity, tend to fall less sick over a period of time and thus can live a healthier and fruitful life. Hence homeopathy is considered a healing science, which makes the patient better mentally (emotionally and intellectually), physically and socially.
