It is not possible to prescribe a remedy on a disease name alone. Homoeopathy focuses on the patient as a whole. That is why, the patients are asked to consult the case-submission form and e-mail their cases in accordance with the instructions therein. Even then, sometimes additional questions have to be asked to get a clearer picture of the patient and what ails them.
Ascertaining minute details to understand the patient and his medical problem(s) is an indispensable necessity of homoeopathic prescribing because homoeopathy seeks to individualize every case in order to shape a treatment plan tailored to the specific requirements of each patient. Since no two individuals are alike, therefore, they cannot suffer exactly in the same manner although the two may have the same disease. A simple example will explain the point. M/s Zaid, Baker and Haris had recurring episodes of semi-lateral headaches that started as a sticking sensation in the left temple, gradually increasing in intensity and settling over the left eye. Mr. Zaid got them whenever exposed to strong smells or cigarette smoke; he was prescribed a homoeopathic remedy Ignatia amara. Mr. Baker experienced the headaches whenever he skipped a meal or took it late; he was given another remedy Lachesis. Mr. Haris’ headaches were caused after exposure to the sun in hot summer days; he received yet another remedy Glonine. The three individuals had the same disease i.e. semi-lateral left-sided headaches but the circumstances under which they got affected were different in each case and therefore each one received a different remedy. The point to be understood is that there are no “disease specific medicines” in homoeopathy. Each case of a given disease needs to be thoroughly investigated in order to work out a prescription most suited to that particular case.
