Mind and Homeopathy

If the brain was so simple that we could understand it, we would be so simpleimage that we wouldn’t understand it. As the modern medical world inches towards understanding the complexities of this 10 trillion-celled mass called brain, in the last century it inched a bit further in realizing (pardon me for not using the word understanding!) the connection of the mind with the physical body. This has also led to the discovery a totally new set of problems called psychosomatic disorders.

The term psychosomatic disorder has no precise definition. Most often the term is applied to physical disorders thought to be caused by psychological factors. For example, after a particularly stressful event, like the loss of a loved one, an individual might develop high blood pressure shortly afterward or even have a heart attack. In another person, the same situation might lead to peptic ulcer or a series of asthma attacks. A third individual equally as grief-stricken might not get sick at all. Social and psychological stress can trigger or aggravate a wide variety of diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), leukemia, and multiple sclerosis. Depression can suppress the immune system, making a depressed person more susceptible to certain infections, such as those by the viruses that cause the common old.

So can the mind (brain) alter the activity of white blood cells (blood cells responsible for body defense) and thus an immune response. If so, how does the brain communicate with the blood cells? After all, white blood cells travel through the body in blood or lymph vessels and aren?t attached to nerves. Research has shown that such relationships to exist. For example, hives (urticaria) can be brought on by a physical allergy or a psychological reaction. Stress, therefore, can cause physical symptoms even though no physical disease may be present. The body responds physiologically to emotional stress. For example, stress can cause anxiety, which then triggers the autonomic nervous system and hormones such as adrenaline to speed up the heart rate and to increase the blood pressure and amount of sweating. Stress can also cause muscle tension, leading to pain in the neck, back, head or elsewhere.

A skilled homeopath knows this relationship between the mind and the body. His great masters like Hahnemann and Kent have taught it to him. For many times he sees chronic cases like that of migraine and peptic ulcer, which had their origin after a mental trauma or prolonged stress, disappear with a few doses of correctly prescribed homoeopathic medicine.

The homoeopathic understanding of health is intimately connected to its understanding of the mind in general. Homoeopaths don?t separate the mind and body in the usual way; they generally assume that the body and mind are dynamically interconnected and the both directly influence each other. This acknowledgement of interconnectedness is not simply a vague, impractical concept. Homeopaths base virtually every homeopathic prescription on the physical and psychological symptoms of a sick person.

Psychological symptoms often play a primary role in the selection of correct medicine. Several schools of psychologists categories people in certain psychological or characterological types. Others in medicine, genetics, and sports categories various ?body types.? Homeopaths, in contrast, acknowledge certain ‘body-mind’ types. They determine their medicines based on the constellation of physical and psychological symptoms. The homeopathic treatment is highly scientific and artful, thus making it by far the best treatment for psychosomatic disorders.

  3. Dear Dr Sharma,

    I found your sight, love the pict. of your wife and you and can feel your magnificent hearts and Souls; thank you for all your work on Earth… so I will share with you a bit of info on the Mind .

    in my energy healing practice in Spokane WA ( I do a more complex form of Reiki my higher Self helped me create) I have ‘seen’ from a higher Consciousness level telepathically, that the Mind of all life forms on Earth is their Consciousness (at 6th chakra) (non physical , the body guard for body, its ego etc) and its a reciever of information;
    the brain is different, thats in the 7th chakra .

    The Mind is a reciever of information from this 3rd dimension and 4th (neg energies here) the life form may not consciously be aware where thought comes from)

    is it possible that people and animals that have mental illness are possibly getting ‘their Mind and brain harmed by the 4th dim. neg energies and not aware. .. what do you think of this?
    there is so much to discover via meditation and many people are too limited by the levels they ‘go into’
    i feel we came to Earth to help raise the Light and Love and to help heal this planet….
    thank you again, if you or your wife could use my energy healing help distantly, , please write me back, then I can share more. love and Light Aranka

  21. Dee Makuannen says:

    Dear Dr. Sharma,

    My 24 year old son was diagnosed with depression at age 18 after experiencing a series of back to back traumatic stressors in his life. He has always been seemingly melachology about not having his birth father present and in his life although I married when he became 12. At age 18 he loss his grandfather to cancer, later loss his first apartment after being fired. He started smoking marijuanna and drinking alcohol at 14 or 15. This increased after the loss of his grandfather and apartment loss.Upon the loss of his apartment in October 2007. He moved back home and later had a relationship with a girlfriend ended. His grandfather was abrubtly diagnosed with prostate cancer and died December 23rd. Prior to his death he was admitted to the hospital for an attempt to commit suicide. He fell into a deep stare for days and later was admitted for an attempt to hang himself. He had an inpatient stay for a week and was diagnosed with depression. He was put on anti-depressants and responded horribly saying that he was hearing voices and seeing things. He was later diagnosed with schizophrenia affective disorder. It has benn 6 and a half years with this diagnosis. He says that he only smokes marijuanna and drinks beers to calm himself and to get rid of the voices. He is not 24, been on at least 12 differnt medications, currently taking Risperdone, and he is tired of the side effects and wants to get off. We have seen 8 or 9 doctors.

    We have tried a naturalpath who did test and said she thought his diagnosis was drug-induced psychoses brought on by marijuanna and stress wanted him to take almost 20 vitamins a day, this didn’t work. I came across your website and think a homeopathic approach may be safer and more effective. He’s had at least 7 or 8 hospitalizations when trying to come off of the psychotropic medication. I hope you can help?

    God Bless,

      Dear Mr. Sardar Sayab, Your son may be having Benign Hypotonia i.e. low muscle tone. the muscles of hands and feet of your son may be very soft and lacking strength. Also he may not be moving on four limbs but scooting or bottom suffling for his movements. In such a case, he may be given physiotherapy. You can also try homoeopathy.

  23. Hi Doctor

    I dont know exactly what is the problem with my brain. My brain is always tensed without any reason that causes me uneasiness and problem to remain awake and enjoy life. I feel that my brain is full of tensions (without any specific reason) and I find it very difficult for me to remain calm. My brain is rarely calm.
    I also have obsessive thoughts that trouble me a lot and interfere in my routine activities. I feel body aches and lack of energy and dont enjoy the things that I used to enjoy earlier.
    All this is result of stressful events in my life because till April 2011 I was living a normal life.

    Now I am fed up of taking medicines and sometimes feel like committing suicide. Please help me live a normal life.

  33. Durga Prasad Palaparti says:

    Thanks Dr. Sharma,
    I have been going through your articles and write ups on several subjects. Your efforts and aim to teach preliminary information about the organs, their funcitons, disease descriptions and possible remidies is a wonderful effort and a noble one. I have noted with lot of pity, that the most successful men/women in their respective vocations, do not know the basics of the human body or the functions of the body organs. I think this subject should be made a part of the curiculam even at the college level — so that every human, if aware of his own body functions can gain more freedom from most avoidable diseases and the necessity to run to the doctors.
