Do You Believe ‘Homeopathy Is Spiritual Healing’, And Homeopaths Are ‘Spiritual Healers’?

There is a prominent section of homeopaths who believe that  homeopathy is an art of ‘spiritual healing’.

One homeopath, in his eagerness to justify his claim that ‘homeopathy is spiritual healing’, quoted recently from hahnemann on my facebook page as follows:

“Homeopathy is a spiritual art of healing.The physician must be a Holy channel for the flow of the divine grace transmit through him to the sick”- HAHNEMANN.

I am not sure whether hahnemann had ever said so or not. Had he actually said so, I would say it is the most unscientific statement hahnemann would have ever made.

How can any body claiming to be a ‘physician’ say that he is a “holy channel”  for “flow of the divine grace transmit through him to the sick”? If it is only a matter of “divine grace”, why should hahnemann do all these drug provings, potentizations and experiments with ‘drugs’?

I prefer to stay away from those “spiritual homeopaths”  who claim claiming to be healing with “divine grace” and “spiritual energy”, since the language of science is beyong the reach of their comprehension. I have nothing to discuss or argue with them.

A physician is not expected to be a ‘spiritual healer’. Let the religious people do that job. Actually, a ‘physician’ starts to talk about ‘spiritual healing’ when he fails as a ‘physician’.

Homeopathy is essentially a form of ‘drug therapy’. It has nothing to do with ‘spiritual healing’. Homeopathy should be understood, explained and practiced as a scientific medicine.

If your selection of ‘similimum’ went wrong, you cannot cure the patient, how much “divine grace” you “transmit to the sick”. Do you claim that NUX, SULPH or LYCO are different forms of ‘divine grace’ you transmit?

‘Homeopathy is spiritual healing’- this theory is intentionally propagated world over by proponents of diverse colors of occult and pseudo-scientific practices destroying the scientific credentials of homeopathy. By this act,  these people are gravely alienating homeopathy from mainstream scientific knowledge system.

Along with homeopathic practice, these people are actually doing spiritual healing, psychic healing, Therapeutic touch, Healing Touch, Esoteric healing, Magnetic healing, Qigong healing, Reiki, Pranic healing, Crystal healing, distant healing, intercessionary prayer, Acupuncture, biofield energy healing,spiritual healing, contact healing, distant healing and various other occult practices. They prefer to call themselves as CAM practitioners. That is why they want to include homeopathy in the category of ‘energy medicine’, and try to explain homeopathy in that terms.

These people propagate hair transmission, telephone transmission, photo transmission, mp3 file transmission, telepathy, radionics, dowsing, spiritual homeopathy and such things in the name of homeopathy. The dangerous thing is, these people have great influence and dominance in international homeopathic community. They appear as ‘representatives’ and ‘advocates’ of homeopathy!

SPIRITUAL HEALING holds the belief that a healer can channel healing energy into the person seeking help by different methods: hands-on, hands-off, and distant (or absent) where the patient and healer are in different locations. There are various schools of SPIRITUAL HEALING. It is known as biofield energy healing, spiritual healing, contact healing, distant healing, therapeutic touch, Reiki etc. SPIRITUAL HEALING is largely non-denominational: practitioners do not see traditional religious faith as a prerequisite for effecting a cure. Faith healing, by contrast, takes place within a religious context.

Since homeopathy uses DRUGS, when you say ‘homeopathy is spiritual healing’, you seem to mean that homeopathic drugs contain ‘spiritual energy’  acting ‘dynamically’, rather than any sort of ‘material’  active principles.

By ‘dynamic action’, it is  meant that the therapeutic actions happens without involvement any ‘material’ agents. Do you consider homeopathic drugs as ‘immaterial’?

If homeopathic drugs act ‘dynamically’, it should be capable of acting from a distance, without any material or physical contact with our body. Then, why you ask the patients to take ‘medicines’ by mouth? You could have asked the patient to keep the drugs at a distance from body, and allow it to act ‘dynamically’!

We cannot call something a ‘medicine’, if it does not contain any ‘material’substance. The term ‘medicine’ refers to something ‘material’.

Any ‘substance’, whether medicine or not, is always ‘material’.  If something is ‘immaterial’, it cannot be called a ‘medicinal substance’!

It is a fact that highly potentized homeopathic drugs do not contain any molecule of ‘original’ drug substances. But that does not mean those preparations are ‘immaterial’ or ‘spiritual’. Actually, our drugs contain ‘molecular imprints’ of original drug molecules. Molecular imprints are ‘material’. They are supramolecular formations of water and ethyl alcohol molecules, into which the spacial conformations of individual drug molecules are engraved as nanocavities. These nanocavities or molecular imprints are the active principles of potentized drugs, which act as artificial binding sites for  pathogenic molecules having conformational affinity.

It is obvious that there is nothing ‘immaterial’ or ‘spiritual’ in the therapeutic actions of  potentized drugs. There is no any ‘spiritual healing’ involved in homeopathy.

I started practicing homeopathy in 1970, when I was 20 years old and studying for final year of BSc (Zoology) course. My interest in homeopathy happened very accidentally, through a constant relationship with a local practitioner who happened to be father of my classmate. I was a regular visitor in his clinic, where from I started reading BOERICKE MATERIA MEDICA and other homeopathic books, which helped me to cure myself my troublesome asthma that have been haunting me since my childhood days. I became a voracious reader of homeopathy. I was also deeply involved in studying marxism and dialectical materialism during my college days, which attracted me to political activities. MARXISM and HOMEOPATHY became two essential parts of my intellectual and practical life, which still continues so. Even though I joined DHMS course in a karnataka homeopathic college, I could not continue it due to my intense involvement in revolutionary political activities that resulted in jail life and a lot of criminal cases. Once that phase was over, I took a diploma in veterinary science and became a livestock inspector in animal husbandry department under govt of kerala. I have been continuing my study and practice of homeopathy all through these years. Since CCH act came into force only in 1976, and it contained provisions allowing existing practitioners to continue, my homeopathic practice went smoothly in parallel with my government job. In 1987, co-operating with some local homeopaths and social activists, I started Kannur District Homeopathic Hospital Sociey, which established a chain of hospitals and homeopathic clinics in different parts of Kannur district. After a few years I had to leave the society for some political reasons, and I established a 100 bedded well equipped homeopathic hospital in Taliparamba, employing a number of prominent homeopaths. That was ended up as a financial disaster for me due to many reasons, including my lack of skills as a money manager, and I was compelled to close down my dream project with in a short period. I lost huge money I invested, lost my reputation, and it pulled me into a debt trap. I learned a lot of valuabl lessons from this failure- about life, human psychology, relationships, and above all, about myself. I realized failure is the greatest teacher, if you are prepared learn from it. I learned how will power and determination to win will help us come back into life as a phoenix from our own ashes. I learned, one does not fail unless he stops fighting and accepts failure. My failure and the hardships that followed has moulded my personality in such a way that I can now withstand any disaster and fight back. I tell you, you will not know what life really is, unless you miserably fail at least once in your life. By this time, I left my government job also, and settled as a full time homeopathic practitioner. By this practice, I could repair my earlier financial losses, and establish well in life. It was during this period that I felt the need of developing a simple and user-friendly homeopathic software, that resulted in the evolution of SIMILIMUM, which was later upgraded into SIMILIMUM ULTRA. Similimum Ultra was well accepted by the profession, and it collected good revenues which continues even today. I stopped my practice a few years back , and concentrated in the study and research activities to evolve scientifically viable explanations to the so-called riddles of homeopathy. This unrelenting study resulted in MIT or Molecular Imprints Therapeutics, which provides a scientific and rational explanation for homeopathy. I started a homeopathic discussion group on facebook called HOMEOPATHY FOR TOTAL CURE, which has more than 35000 homeopaths as members. By this work on facebook, I could establish close relationship with many homeopaths around the world. It goes on. I could successfully convert facebook as my office and work place, from where I propagate my MIT ideas, co-ordinate my works for homeopathic community, and sell my Similimum Ultra Software. My years of hardwork in search of HOW HOMEOPATHY WORKS ultimately resulted in the publication of a book titled REDEFINING HOMEOPATHY (3000 pages, 3 volumes, hard bound, Rs 6000), in which I have compiled my articles regarding my scientific explanations of basic principles of homeopathy. These ideas are called MIT or MOLECULAR IMPRINTS THERAPEUTICS. MIT is now included in the syllabus of MD (HOM) course of prestigious DY PATIL DEEMED UNIVERSITY, PUNE, INDIA. Research department of SARADA KRISHNA HOMEOPATHIC COLLEGE, Kulashekharam, Tamilnadu, India, the only NAC accredited homeopathy college in India, has recently taken up certain reserch projects for proving the scientific explanations proposed by MIT. Based on MIT perspective of homeopathy, I had developed an MIT PROTOCOL for scientific homeopathy, and initiated a project for establishing a chain of MIT NETWORK CLINICS all over India, where MIT PROTOCOL will be practiced. More over, I have developed a whole range of 351 MIT FORMULATIONS, which are disease-specific combinations of post-avogadro diluted homeopathy drugs. NOW I AM IN 71st YEAR OF MY LIFE, AND STILL LOOKING FOR NEW HORRIZONS!
