Q. 1 As we say that every person harbours all the three Miasms than what will be the effect on his miasmatic configuration if his or her V D acquired at the age of 20 or SOL is suppressed by antibiotics ? Please opine.
I am sure you are well aware of the fact Miasms are dynamic disease producing potentials and cannot be tested in vitro as we can confirm the presence of Syphilitic antibodies by battery of Serum tests - VDRL being one of them. Hence, on the basis of the Doctrine of Chronic Miasms, we can logically deduce the following possibilities.
- If the VD,happens to be as a result of casual contact without any form of perversion then there will be NO effect on the basic configuration of the harbouring Miasmas. The disease will be behave like any other acute disease and the constitution will be able to throw its effects on the surface in the form of inflammation of ulcer, whatever it may be.
- As a result of suppression,the relevant venereal miasm if, it is in the latent state will get aroused and start manifesting.
However, I will welcome opinion of the learned readers fraternity. If possible we will publish them in the coming issue.
Q. 2. Respected sir, I have a patient who suffered from Syphilis 2 years before
marriage and was VDRL positive. But after a full course of some antibiotic treatment his
follow up Blood report become negative.
Now, it is more than 4 years, that he is married. His first child, who is about 2 months old, has got cleft lip (upper) and cleft palate - a congenital Syphilitic manifestation. What can be the cause for these defects ? Please opine.
DR KASHINATH GAURKAR, Chandrapur.
A very common mistake often noticed amongst the neophytes is to link VDRL positivity to the Venereal Miasmatic Stigmata. Both are different. Presence or absence of syphilitic miasmatic influence cannot be tested by serum tests. Even if VDRL becomes stigmata. Man transfers it to his wife in the state and stage in which he harbours at the time of sexual contact.
Congenital Syphilitic manifestations occur only when the Syphilitic influence is in the manifestive state in the newborn during his intra uterine life.
Q. 3. Can homoeopathic medicines be administered in Centisimal and 50 Millesimal
potencies simultaneously. Please explain.
DR SANJAY TAMBE.
No never. The physician must first decide his plan of treatment before he attempts to apply Homoeopathic potencies,otherwise he will make a mess of the case in due course.
Both of these scales act on different planes, hence one will definitely affect the action of the other.
From my personal experience,I am convinced that if a homoeopathic physician follows the golden rule of restricting himself to any one drug in one scale of potency at one point of time he / she will be able to get the best possible results without any danger of implanting new iatrogenic disease which are at times incurable.
Q.4 What is your view on proving of newer remedies like Plastic and others ? Please
give your free and frank opinion.
DR RAJENDRA GUPTA, Dondaicha.
As far as I am aware, there exist more than thousand and odd remedies proved in our homoeopathic armamentarium today, and we have not been able to clinically apply each of them to verify their claimed potentialities. Hence, it is my firm conviction that before any half hearted attempts by stray individuals or lame institutions, are undertaken for discovering newer medicinal agents according to their own methods, genuine efforts must be made by acknowledged authorities to seriously exploit the merits of what has already been discovered till date by undertaking reprovings and clinical trials of Old and Lesser used Remedies" within approved standard formats.
I am sure that there is every possibility, by this exercise, we will get satisfactory answers to all our present day problems of disease like Cancers, AIDS, Autoimmune Disease and so on.
Q.5. Now a days we find practically every patient is suffering from some form of mental
disturbance or other along with his physical complaints. Do you agree that in order to get
fast cure we must take the help of auxillary measures like Psychotherapy, Catharsis etc.
DR VILAS MAHAJAN Jalgaon.
Yes, you are right. It is true that in competitive times,everyone is in a state of turmoil. Some due to genuine reasons, some temperamental and some on account of their sycotic greeds.
In such cases, optimum results are obtained.
if appropriate psychotherapeutic exercise are applied along with the constitutional remedy. In Aph No 226, Dr Hahnemann has recommended its rational use for treating Psychosomatic Disorders. At the same time he has prohibited its use in the treatment of True Mental Disorders (Aph 224-225) for fear of complications.
