Conventionally, Homoeopathy is not a system of treatment that can be viewed diagnostically. It should be symptomatic when it is Homoeopathy. But nowadays a disease can be recognised easily by some diagnostic tests, and looking at the disease through symptoms becomes secondary. The aim behind publishing this book is to find out a reasoning based approach in Homoeopathy to the disease-drug relation, so that any physician may find out the remedy of a disease on his own, if the disease is diagnosed and the reasoning for selecting the remedy for it is correct, without going through the compilation of symptoms. In this book, the author has tried to find out ways and wanted to show that how the approach of the treatment will be ‘diagnostic’ in nature. This book is a merger of two parts of the well-known book named, ‘Homoeopathy viewed Diagnostically’ by the author. In this edition it is revised again, some topics have been added and everything is made available in a single attractive folder. The contents of this book are a research work by the author who has been practising Homoeopathy for more than 40 years. His academic study in Homoeopathy had been preceded by his another academic study in ‘Applied Mathematics’ in postgraduation under C.U., which certainly influenced him to look Homoeopathy from a different angle which is ‘diagnostic and scientific’ in nature.
How the author has perceived Homoeopathy?
To him, it is not the matter which remedy is mentioned for a disease in the materia medica but he used to question, whether ‘it’ or ‘which one’ should be the remedy, diagnostically? Because, a remedy must have a diagnostically proven ‘disease-drug relationship’ for its effectiveness and curability only then the method will be considered as ‘scientific’. The way he established the ‘disease-drug relationship’ in this book bears the essence of modern system of treatment and Homoeopathy can never be tagged as ‘unscientific’ anymore.
He always questioned: Why one of the main symptoms of Lachesis is ‘cannot bear anything tight anywhere’? Or, why does Pulsatilla show ‘no two stools alike’? All such unanswered questions, generally ignored in graduation level, are explained here diagnostically. He observed, the pharmacodynamics of a remedy bear the indications of a particular set of symptoms to be exposed in a diseased person, because, a remedy can never leave its fundamental properties, be it physical or chemical or relating to toxicology, pharmacology etc. So, the process of selection of a remedy should have a pathogenic conformity to become a scientific method. And thus, a diagnostically established disease-drug relationship is very important which will have a distinct impact towards curing a disease.
The book is an exceptional work of the author. Nothing else, but a book of such kind of innovative works can actually determine the genre of a person. And the author likes to be known only through his works and acceptance of it by the readers, specially, the next-gen-Homoeopaths.
We hope that this book will be helpful for both the students and the practitioners of Homoeopathy during the selection of the remedy.
Title: Remedies When Homoeopathy Viewed Diagnostically (a scientific approach in Homoeopathy)
Author: Dr SAKTINATH BHATTACHARJEE
The Author is a renowned Homoeopath and a well known personality in the country and abroad for his works relating to “diagnostic approach” in Homoeopathy. In his early life, while working in the remote village as an officer of a Nationalized Bank, he experienced the sufferings of the poor people in having medical facilities and tried to help them with his newly (at that time) developed ‘diagnostic approach in Homoeopathy’. Observing the overwhelming response of the patients on experiencing ‘quick healing and more effectiveness’ of the method, the Author decidedly gave up his lucrative job at the middle of his career.
