1. How far Homoeopathy can help in the treatment of Neurofibromatosis?
Dr.K U MAJMUNDAR Ahmedabad
Neurofibromatosis is a condition in which there is a tendency to produce fibromatous swellings on the neurelemnal sheath of the peripheral sheath of the peripheral nerves. It continues to increase in size till the availability of space. Of course in some case it has been reported to have evolved into cancerous change. The fundamental cause for such a tendency is TUBERCULAR MIASM, a Psrosycotic complex and from the knowledge of physiology we know that fibrous tissue is an irreversible change.
However, in order to restrict the tendency, we have drugs like Sulphur, Tuberculinum, Medorrhinum, and Plumbum-met. I have in my records a few cases in whom the above stated drugs, when administered on other symptoms, prevented new growths and also reduced the size of the extent of reversible pathology. It will not be wrong to classify this disease under the category of One sided disease or Difficult disease to cure.

3. The patient says
there is "GHABRAHAT" in him. Kindly suggest the rubric to which this symptom
C Indapure Aurangabad
A good question indeed. It is one of the most common complaint particularly by the ladies. Unfortunately, there is no rubric in any of the commonly used repertories which can be claimed to be its exact translation. However for this symptoms we take the rubric Anxiety (Page No 6 Dr Kents Repertory). If it is associated with palpitation then, take the rubric on page no 874 and if with fear then page no 8.
4. What is Chromopathy System of Medicine and what is its relation with Homoeopathy?
Is there any Post Graduate Course in Homoeopathy specially in Maharashtra?
S A Dashratha Osmanabad
Chromopathy is a science of colours. According to Sir John wolf Gaug, von Goethi Colour is born as a result of subtle interaction between Darkness (Feminine) & Light (Masculine). According to him colour acts as a healing force between the two extremes. He further states that neither total Darkness, nor total light can maintain Life. In total Darkness, one tends to go to sleep which eventually ends up in unconsciousness. Similarly, total Light makes us blind rendering us unconscious.
He also said that Colours produce sounds and sounds create forms which ultimately metamorphose into a dwelling for the soul and the spirit. It is further contended that the chemical make up of every individual depends upon the release of certain chemicals at nerve endings and the movement of these can be accentuated or retarded by Colours and Sounds. Hence, certain colours are used for certain specific disorders.
Homoeopathy, is a system based on an absolutely different law, it has no relation whatsoever with Chromopathy. Please note.
In reply to the second question please note that till date No Homoeopathic College or University in Maharashtra has started any Post Graduate Course after BHMS. Of course in Nagpur University all the Preliminaries for M D course have been already fulfilled long back, but there is no college which can claim to be fully equipped for the said course. As such there are very few college all over the country which have all facilities in terms of staff and equipments even for conducting BHMS degree course.
