SIVARAMAN P., Dreams and their Homoeopathic Medicines

 PAGE iii


 Any deviation from normal health is termed as disease. Disease is made known by signs and symptoms felt by the sufferer and observed by others. The weaker organs will suffer more than the others and thereby the entire person suffers, in other words, he becomes a patient. It is a foolish idea to repair the diseased organs alone forsaking the patient. Alteration of this morbid state can only be accomplished by an agent which cause such a morbid state in a healthy individual. If the individual becomes normal his organs too become so.

 Disease, as said earlier, is made known by symptoms. The homoeopath should perceive what this symptom picture is worth. Symptoms, however insignificant may seem to the patient, may, perhaps, be a pointer for the proper selection of the apt remedy for the homoeopath. To get the symptom picture or totality of the symptoms, the good homoeopath inquires in detail all the symptoms of the patient in his own language and of attendants in their own language. Dreams are also such symptoms. A sincere homoeopath finds guiding lights through such a symptom - DREAMS.

 “Dreams, to a homoeopath, are often-times quite guiding”, Dr. N.M.  CHOUDHURI says. He continues. “They give us a far better insight into the deeper nature of our patient than many of the so-called symptoms that crop up and float on  the surface to meet our superficial gaze.

 PAGE iv 

 It is not for nothing that dreams differ. Some dream of accidents, other of amorous subjects, others again off topics of varied nature - each dream in its turn specifying a particular temperament, or more correctly a special deviation of the individual from the normal. Important cure have been recorded, based on dreams alone. Hence a special study of the dreams, together with their remedies, will not be out of place.”

 “The homoeopathic system of treatment is thoroughly scientific. It encompasses the patient in his entirety. It does not, like the other schools of treatment, regards its patient as a conglomeration of various detached self-sufficient, autogenic units, each working out its own salvation, independent of the central vital force, that really stimulates, guides, protects and preserves, all the different organs in a system of complete harmony unison. Therefore, we take into account not only the workings and deviations of all the organs of our patient and their functions, both normal and abnormal, but look deeper even into the thoughts, ideas, sentiments, and even further into the unconscious and subconscious state of our patient.”

 With these humble words I place this little volume in the hands of my homoeopathic breathern in the fond hope that this will be of some help to them to carry out their business of curing the sick.
