Prime aim in writing this handbook is to meet the requirements of homeopathic
medical students and practitioners. Idea is to provide a basic and comprehensive approach
to the treatment planning, which one must adapt in the very beginning of a given clinical
situation, and follow judiciously in a realistic manner keeping in touch with the current
medical practice. Our endeavour is to follow standard medical therapy in a rational and
clear pattern. Selective stress has been given to those diseases which are common to this
country and are incorporated in the present text. The choice of drugs is an open one. We
have included those drugs which by and large are standard drugs and are being traditionally
used by masters of the prescribing art. Alternative methods of treatment have been
mentioned only when they are needed. The therapeutic part has drugs which is based on
the clinical situation and their particular therapeutic necessity. The idea of giving allopathic
medicines is that: If at all a patient who is undergoing medication, consults a homeopath,
he should be aware of the drugs and he should not stop these drugs. It is to be understood
that being a homeopath you are not entitled to prescribe the allopathic drugs. In such
situations the patient must be referred to the concerned specialist. The reference range of
serological investigations may vary according to the laboratory method adopted. As such
these need to be referred from current methods adopted by the respective laboratory.
‘ The section on emergency has been reviewed by Dr. K.K. Shrivastava, Cardiologist,
specifically in reference to indications of allopathic drugs. If the patient is being concurrently
seen by a homeopath, the drugs as prescribed by the allopath should not be withdrawn
without mutual discussion.
This book is being framed according to the syllabus laid down by "The Central Council
of Homeopathy" for the undergraduate and postgraduate level of curriculum at the national
The topics are divided into three broad sections. The first section deals with the
Principles of Homeopathic Practice, second one with the Current Biomedical Concepts of
Medicine and Their diagnosis and Homeopathic Therapeutics, the third and last one
incorporates brief outline of commonly used Homeopathic Medicines.
We are fully conscious of our shortcomings and hence welcome criticism. We will
highly appreciate the suggestions from our readers for the improvement of the book.
