Getting to the route of sickness by removing maintaining causes and obstacles to cure
Homeopaths are trained in how to recognise and advise the removal of what we refer to as ‘maintaining causes’ and ‘obstacles to cure.’ In simple terms, this means eliminating habits or changing elements of lifestyle that are clearly injurious to one’s health and will deter healing.
I am consistently shocked by people who complain about feeling unwell whilst not being able to recognise that often, their complaints are self inflicted. Take for example the heavy smoker, who has a chronic cough or the person with a myriad of digestive issues, who insists on eating fast food most of the time. These are obvious examples; others include people that are not even aware that their habits are causing distress to their body. The patient who is underweight, with no energy and chronic health problems; on investigation, her diet consisted of nothing fresh, but all pre-packaged food with low nutritional value; her energy spent on looking after her young family, who unfortunately, also eat this diet. A result of this self neglect leads to the prescription of pharmaceutical medications, which can often exacerbate the condition in the long term, whilst possibly giving short term relief. The sickness is therefore compounded and invariably some of these medications cause new illnesses, knows as ‘iatrogenic’ disease. Hahnemann, in Aphorism 74 of The Organon of Medicine states: ‘Among chronic diseases, we must unfortunately include all those wide spread illnesses artificially created by allopathic treatments.’
So, the removal of what Hahnemann referred to as ‘causa occasionalis’ (maintaining causes) must surely make sense and pave the way for true healing to begin. Whatever medication, in whatever medical discipline, will not be fully effective until this is done. In Aphorism 77, Hahnemann states: ‘Diseases engendered by prolonged exposure to avoidable noxious influence should not be called chronic, they include diseases brought about by:
- The habitual indulgence of harmful food and drink
- All kinds of excesses that undermine health
- Prolonged deprivation of things necessary to life
- Unhealthy places, especially swampy regions
- Dwelling only in cellars, damp places or other close quarters
- Lack of exercise or fresh air
- Physical or mental over exertion
- Continuing emotional stress etc..
These self-inflicted disturbances go away on their own with improved living conditions if no chronic miasm is present, they cannot be called chronic diseases.’ There are several classifications of chronic disease (according to Hahnemann) which will be covered at a later date. Although the language here could possibly benefit from being updated, it is clear that the underlying message is to enjoy a healthy lifestyle suited to your unique constitution, which is balanced on every level.
What is important here is to recognise that through individualisation and the identification of circumstances peculiar to a patient, obstacles to cure can be removed; only then can true individualised homeopathic treatment begin.
The homeopathic approach, in its entirety is set out in Aphorism 3 of The Organon.
‘If the physician clearly perceives what has to be cured in disease, ie, in each individual case of disease (knowledge of the disease,) if he clearly perceives what it is in medicines, which heals, ie: in each individual medicine (knowledge of medicinal powers,) if he applies in accordance with well defined principles what is curative in medicines to what he has clearly recognised to be pathological in the patient so that cure follows, ie, if he knows in each particular case how to apply the remedy most appropriate to its character (selection of the remedy), prepare it exactly as required and give it in the right amount (the correct dose,) and repeat the dose exactly when required ‘and lastly, if in each case he knows the obstacles to cure and how to remove them so recovery is permanent, then he knows how to treat thoroughly and efficaciously and is a true physician.’

Background & Introduction: Homeopathic medicines are extensively used in India and are recognized by the Government for regular management of different ailments. Though factor concentrates are being supplied increasingly at government hospital yet the distribution is erratic and patchy across the country. Present study builds our previous experience and explores the utility of homeopathic medicines along with non-factor managements in arresting the acute bleeding episodes in severe haemophilia patients who has very little access to factor concentrates.
Materials and Methods: Severe haemophilia patients (PWH) having acute bleeding episodes of various types with very little access to factor concentrates who continued to bleed or remained symptomatic at least for 6 hr after all measures (RICE, EACA/ Tranexamic acid locally or systemically, in small number of patients single dose of factor concentrates/ FEIBA or novoseven. Local pressure etc) failed to arrest the bleeding or the symptoms were included in this analysis in this multicentric report. All the patients maintained a bleeding diary.
The study was conducted at three centres at Mumbai. Nashik and Surat between December 2007 to march 2014 involving 494 patients between 9 days to 51years of age. Evaluation of bleeding and the degree of relief by homeopathic medicines was done by experts in modern medicine in a blind fashion. Homeopathic Medicines were given by trained homeopaths with experience in treating haemophilia for at least 5 years. For objective selection of medicine computer based repertorisation was initially done using RADAR software and from the list of appropriate medicines the homeopathic practitioner selected his own medicine for the occasion.
Efficacy of the intervention was assessed by i) Stoppage of bleeding withinn 6 hr of treatment ii) No drop in haemoglobin of more than 1 Gm/dl over 24 hr iii) No need for blood transfusion and/ or factor insfusion after homeopathic intervention iv) Relief of pain and swelling and other features of inflammation in cases of haemarthrosis.All coagulation related investigation of the patients were done at the haemostasis laboratory of National institute of Immunohaematology at Mumbai, which is an International Haemophilia Training Centre (IHTC).
Initial correlation of selection of similar class of homeopathic medicines between three homeopathic physicians at three centres was tested by requesting them to select homeopathic medicines in hypothetical cases and analysing them by Fleiss kappa statistic. Chi square (X2) test was done to see the statistical significance of management compared to those cases where at least one dose of factor concentrate was given.
Results:Four hundred and ninety four severely affected PWH from Nashik (292), Mumbai (182) and Surat (20) presented with 636 episodes of bleeding. Five hundred and seventy eight bleeding episodes (91%) were success fully managed with homeopathic medicines only. In 21 episodes (3.1%) homeopathic medicines failed but responded to additional factor concentrates. 37 patients who received factor concentrates without any apparent benefit in the given time responded to homeopathic medicines. Out of 31 patients who bled with inhibitor (2.4–6.7 BU/ ml) but 23 of these patient responded (65%) to homeopathic medicines. The inter prescriber correlation on the class of medicine prescribed by three homeopathic physicians was substantial (Fleiss kappa of 0.67).Pain relief in these patients were also substantial (87/105 i.e., 83% patient with acute haemarthrosis). Single patient of severe factor XIII deficienct who continuously bled from umbilical stump responded to abrotanum 30.

What are the differences between Homeopathy and Conventional Medicine?
When you are ill, and you are considering whether to use Homeopathy or Conventional Medical treatment, it is important to understand the very fundamental differences between the two medical therapies. What follows is an attempt to inform patients about these fundamental differences between the two medical systems in the way illness and disease is perceived, and how patients are treated. It is taken from a paper written by Deborah Olenev, C.C.H. Unfortunately, and with apologies to Ms Olenev, I no longer have access to the original source of this excellent information (but will gladly add it to this page if informed). The Origin of Illness CM. Illnesses occur as the result of an invasion by an outside source, such as viruses, germs and bacteria, which invade an unsuspecting body. H. Illnesses result when emotional, psychological or spiritual stresses become overwhelming, and thus weaken the body. The inability to process these emotional stresses leaves the individual susceptible to the disrupting influence of these disease agents. The Importance to Health of our Emotions, and the Physical World CM. The inner world of emotions is not valued in terms of any real power or influence over the workings of the physical body. The strongest influence on the body is exerted by the physical world. H. The emotions, attitudes, loves, longings and disappointments exert the greatest stresses on an individual, and have the power to disturb health. The Principals and Laws of Cure (Maintaining and Regaining Health) CM.There are no laws to guide the physician in treating illnesses. There is no philosophy to aid in the evaluation of the results of treatment. “The treatment of illness depends entirely upon experience, upon what can be found out by giving medicines to the sick”. The result is constantly shifting methods, what is true today as a protocol for treating illness many not be true tomorrow. H.There are definite principles and laws of cure which the prescriber must rely upon and know intimately in order to effective treat the sick. There is a logic to the order, and the process of the cure, and an ability to evaluate when changes are not occurring in the correct order. The treatment of illness depends upon a knowledge of remedies and their healing power, acquired by experimentation on healthy people, who can describe the fine nuances of change in attitudes, emotional, physical and mental states. The Need for Medical Testing to Inform Treatment CM.Disease is characterised by changes in the tissues. Unless these changes can be measured, the disease cannot be treated. H.Our feelings are important as changes in our emotional state precede illness, and indicates the remedy needed. These immeasurable changes in our emotions are the precursors of disease, and they are symptoms which can be effectively utilised by the Homeopath to guide him/her to the remedy. Removal of Symptoms CM.Removal of symptoms is the ideal of cure, while the disease itself remains untreated. H.Removal of symptoms along with the disease and restoring health is the ideal of cure. Heroic, or Aggressive Treatment CM.Frequently resorts to aggressive methods, and toxic drugs with severe adverse reactions. Often these drugs superimpose a medicinally-induced disease in place of the natural one with the disease growing inside often leading to surgery. H.Gentle, mild treatment which can often leading to permanent cure. Length of Treatment CM.Frequent repetition of the medicine, because the primary action of the dose has to be controlled because of toxicity. This means the affect lasts for only a few hours. H.One remedy supports the vital force on the way to recovery. The next remedy is administered only if and when the symptoms relapse. Allopathy or Homeopathy CM.Medicine are chosen for their opposite or contrary effect to the symptoms they are meant to treat. H.Remedies are chosen for their similarity with the symptoms of the patient, so that they work alongside the immune system and not against it (thus following the Law of Similars). Doses of Medication CM.Crude or large material doses of drug or vaccine that work on a chemical level. H.Infinitesimally small doses of remedy are employed, just enough to set a reaction going, like switching on a light. The medicines work on an electro-magnetic (or an energy) level. The use of Surgery CM.Frequent use of surgery. If you can’t cure it, then remove it! H.Rare use of surgery. Conditions can be healed with remedies, except where tissue changes have occurred due to the delay on the part of the patient, or where there are congenital abnormalities. Treating the Person or the Disease? CM.Treats the disease. H.Treats the person. The Importance of Diagnosis CM.It is crucial to know the diagnosis, because the treatment is prescribed according to this diagnosis. H.It is important to know the characteristic symptoms of the individual’s illness, which are present regardless of where the disease is located in the body, so making the diagnosis less important. The Life of Medicines CM.New medicines are constantly being created, going in and out of vogue with each new season, or to replaced failed or banned medicines. H.The same remedies have been used for centuries as they are tried and tested. Remedies never change their properties, they remain known, trusted, loved and reliable. New substances are being proven (by research) and incorporated into the Homeopathic Materia Medica. Miasms CM.There is no knowledge, understanding or acceptance of miasms, their characteristics, and their impact on our health. H.Understands the historic or genetic influences on our health, and has developed its knowledge of miasms, and their ability to make us sick. Categorising Illness and Disease CM.There is a limit on the possible number of diseases and symptoms that are taken into consideration. Symptoms of illness have been grouped together in order to reach a disease diagnosis. In this way the number of diseases is restricted to those which the physician can visualise mentally, and limits the doctor’s ability to treat the individual rather than the disease. H.There are an infinite number of diseases and symptoms. Nature, and an individual’s experience of illness, do not follow stereotyped diseased formulations. Every new combination of symptoms constitutes a different disease. It is the grouping of symptoms within each individual that are important, and Homeopathy has an infinite capability to deal with these variations. The Heart of Medicine CM.Anatomy, surgery, physiology, and chemistry are the heart of medicine, but not pharmacology. H.Pharmacology is the heart of medicine. Surgery is an independent science common to all medical system. The Healing Power of Nature CM.Disbelief in the healing power of nature. “The physician is more skilful than the human organism in curing disease”. “The recuperative energies of nature were to be trusted but seldom and sparingly”. “Physicians felt justified in intervening to any desired extent in the disease process”. H.Belief in the healing power of nature. The homeopath imitates the pattern of symptoms that the immune system produces, believing that the vital force creates symptoms as signs of its derangement, and as a means of achieving equilibrium. He therefore follows nature’s lead, but adds the energy of the similar remedy to the healing process.

Is there another way to try to be more in harmony with our blooming Nature?
The overall tendency to sensitivity and to allergic reactions can be permanently changed, for life, through homeopathy. This type of “constitutional” chronic treatment can only be done by a homeopathic physician, however. And your professional homeopath can give you a special remedy available only by prescription:Example- PSORINUM. The beauty of this remedy is that when only a one-time dose is given 14 days before the allergy season starts, it can prevent most allergy attacks and enormously diminish the intensity of the patient’s suffering in other cases.
For those of you who don’t have a homeopathic physician nearby, I’d like to teach you some over-the-counter acute remedies which might bring you some quick relief with no danger of side effects. You probably already know how cheap homeopathic remedies are: only one cent a day. Just remember: we don’t have just one homeopathic remedy for allergies and hayfever. The remedies are totally individualized to each patient’s unique symptoms. So let’s go shopping through Nature’s gifts and see if we can make it a memorable Spring after this beautiful Winter.
One of the most popular remedies might be right in your kitchen. Anyone who has cut up raw onions for cooking knows how they irritate the eyes and nose. Onions cause violent sneezing and lachrymation (eyes watering). Then if the homeopathic law of cures is true, it ought to be a good remedy for a runny nose and hay fever. In fact, ALLIUM CEPA (red onion) covers more symptoms of common cold and hay fever than any other remedy! It is indicated in increased secretions from nose, eyes, mouth, throat. The patients experience a profuse, runny, burning nasal discharge which is worse in a warm room and better in the open air. They have a profuse, bland (non-burning) tearing from the eyes with reddened eyes and a desire to rub them frequently. But the discharge from the nose is acrid and burning, often burning the skin under the nose and creating a red, raw “mustache”. For onion lovers, this remedy is just another one of Nature’s gifts.
From the kitchen we might as well walk straight to our yard and look for the plant EUPHRASIA or Eyebright. Its characteristics are easy to remember, because they are the opposite of Allium Cepa: bland nasal discharge and burning eye secretions. The eyes of the patient water so much that they seem to swim in tears. Sometimes thick yellow discharge escapes from the eyes. The whites of the eyes become red and the cheeks become reddened from the burning tears. The eye symptoms are worse in the open air, sunlight and wind.
Another very popular remedy, most welcome in the ragweed season (September- October), is AMBROSIA or potentized ragweed. The symptom picture is much like Euphrasia, but use Ambrosia instead if your hayfever comes from exposure to ragweed pollen. The eyes itch and water a lot, the throat may be irritated and the breathing asthmatic. The nose and head may feel stuffed up.
You must be familiar by now with the wonderful remedy Arsenic (ARSENICUM ALBUM) from my previous articles: nothing better for travelers’ diarrhea or the start of any cold. But it is also a very specific for burning tears (it is a good remedy for burning symptoms in general) and clear, watery nasal discharge with the nose running like a faucet. The nasal discharge is often worse on the right side. A patient who needs Arsenicum will often wake up between midnight and 2 a.m. with sneezing spells, tossing around restlessly, sometimes with anxious cries and a great desire for cold drinks which they drink in little sips. If these symptoms are suppressed by Western medications, asthma attacks can be the result.
While we are discussing the wonderful poisons, we might want to mention “Poison weed” or WYETHIA, a small but very effective remedy if the hay fever symptoms ask for it. Its distinct symptom is an irritable itching behind the nose and/or at the roof of the mouth. A tickling sensation creates a dry hacking cough. The throat feels hot with a tendency to constant clearing even though it’s dry. Often the patient will mention that the throat feels swollen with difficulty in swallowing.
To show you how homeopathy matches the remedies to the mental and emotional characteristics of the patient, consider the two remedies PULSATILLA and NUX VOMICA. They both have the same typical symptom for the allergy itself: the nose is runny during the day and stuffed up at night. But the personality of the patient needing each remedy is totally different: the Pulsatilla person (most typically a little girl) is mild-tempered, clingy and weepy, tending to cling to her mother even more than usual when she’s sick. The Nux vomica person (typically a businessman) is ambitious, competitive and irritable, often a work-aholic who compensates by over-indulging in food or alcohol. For acute situations we often give a remedy just based on the physical symptoms, but when there is a definite personality trait for the remedy, we try to match that as well.
And to show you how specific Homeopathy is, consider the characteristics of Cevadilla Seed or SABADILLA: its symptom picture includes burning red eyelids, with tears flowing worse during sneezing, yawning and coughing. The face and lips feel hot; they burn as if scalded. There is spasmodic sneezing with a runny nose. The secretions are watery, worse from the odor of flowers, even from thinking about flowers. The patient picks at his nose because it feels dry and itchy. Cold air definitely makes the patient feel worse. The throat is painful especially on empty swallowing, is better from hot drinks and the pain can go from left to right.
Do you understand now that a homeopathic remedy has to be tailored to your individual allergy or hay- fever symptoms? Unlike in Western medicine, one symptom might change the prescription completely because we are curing symptoms, not suppressing them.
In this short article lie many secrets to relieving acute attacks of allergies and hay fever. However, be wise. Don’t stop at this stage but consult a well-trained homeopathic physician. He or she alone will be able to eradicate the entire allergic predisposition. And when someone sneezes in your presence, don’t say, “Bless you,” just say, “Take the right homeopathic remedy!”

A Dictionnary of Practical Materia Medica
by J.H. Clarke, M.D.
Atropa Belladonna. Deadly Nightshade.
Characteristics.─Belladonna acts primarily on the brain, and Teste very acutely explains the diversity of its action on men . An enormous number of the symptoms of Bell. are developed in and from the head and sensorium. Conformably with this, the pains of Bell. run downwards, i.e., away from the head. (Silic. and Gels. have a pain running up the back). To understand aright the action and uses of this great medicine it is necessary to bear in mind some leading features which characterise its action in all parts of the organism. But before alluding to these I will briefly refer to its correspondence to scarlatina. Cases of Belladonna poisoning have frequently been mistaken for cases of scarlatina. But it is the smooth form only, these presenting a smooth, even, red surface that come under its controlling action and prophylaxis. When such an epidemic is about, any one who may be exposed to infection may obtain almost certain immunity by taking Belladonna two or three times a day.
The several points to be remembered about Belladonna are that it is a medicine which has great general sensitiveness and also sensitiveness of the special senses─sensitive to light; to slightest noise; to motion or jar as when someone touches the bed. This is one feature which renders Bell. so appropriate in hydrophobia. It is a chilly medicine; sensitive to changes from warm to cold, to draught of air, to damp weather, to chilling from having the head uncovered, or having the hair cut; better from being wrapped up warmly in a room. Under this drug there is a remarkable quickness of sensation, or of motion; the eyes snap and move quickly. The pains come and go suddenly no matter how long they may last. They are in great variety, but throbbing, burning, and stabbing are very characteristic: “stabbing from one temple to the other.”
The great intensity and variety of the head pains has caused Bell. to be regarded as the headache medicine par excellence. Congestion of blood to the head. Vertigo, mostly at night on turning over in bed, or when getting up in the morning, also when walking and on every change of position. Headache with flushed face and brilliant eyes, dilated pupils. Feeling in brain like swashing of water. Throbbing, pulsating headache, with beating arteries and violent palpitation of the heart. It has cured a very severe headache in a nervous man occurring whenever he was exposed to tobacco smoke. In the mental sphere are mania; rage; disposition to bite, scratch and tear things. Fantastic illusions when closing eyes. Dull and sleepy; half asleep and half awake. Spasms and twitchings are very marked. Many disorders of vision. Heat, redness and burning are three great characteristic notes of Bell., and are constantly cropping out in the pathogenesis. The face is purple, red, and hot, or yellow. Redness and pallor alternate. The mouth is exceedingly dry without thirst. Stinging in œsophagus, < swallowing or talking. Œsophagus feels contracted. Sensation of a hand clutching intestines. Stool in lumps like chalk. Spasmodic contraction of anus; obstinate constipation. Bleeding piles; back pains as if breaking. The menstrual flow is hot; of light colour; or bad smell. Cough short, dry, tickling, similar to cough of Rumex and Phos. Whooping-cough; with crying or pains before the attack; flushed face; nose-bleed and bloody expectoration; sparks before eyes; stitches in spleen; involuntary stool and urine. Paralysis of lungs and heart (vagus nerve). Violent palpitation of heart. Stitches in chest. Swelling of breast with bright red streaks radiating from centre of inflammation. Rheumatism < by motion. Sweat on covered parts only.
Bell. is a great children’s remedy, not less important than Cham. Complaints come suddenly; hot, red face, semi-stupor, every little while starting or jumping in sleep as if it might go into convulsions. A very general characteristic of Bell. is < on lying down. It refers to headache and all kinds of inflammatory affections. Some characteristic symptoms are: “Tenderness of abdomen, < by least jar.” “Pressing downward as if contents of abdomen would issue through vulva, < mornings; often associated with pain in back as if it would break.” Starting, twitching, or jumping in sleep. Moaning in sleep. “Sleepy, but cannot sleep.” The characteristic skin of Bell. is: “Uniform, smooth, shining, scarlet redness, so hot that it imparts a burning sensation to the hand of one who feels it.” “Sweat on covered parts only” is also a marked symptom of Bell.
Bell. is predominantly (but by no means exclusively) a right-side medicine: all affections of internal head, right side right eye; right ear right face; right teeth; right hypochondrium right chest; right upper extremity; right lower extremity; mouth and fauces left side. It is suited to plethoric persons with red face; and to conditions where there is local plethora, that is, inflammatory states with pain, throbbing, shiny redness as in acute gout. Symptoms are < afternoon; 3 p.m.; 11 p.m.; after midnight; during the night and not at all in the day; morning. By touch; draught of air; cold applications; having hair cut; looking at shiny things; drinking; sleeping; lying down; lying on affected side. > Bending affected part backwards or inwards; leaning head against something; standing; by warmth. Bell. is suited to the bilious, lymphatic temperament. Light hair and complexion, blue eyes. It grows in dry limestone soils and is the acute correlative of Calc. c.
