About the Book:
True there's no substitute for Allopathy, with its life-saving drugs, antibiotics and surgery it is the only answer to a range critical illnesses and dreaded diseases. But despite extensive advancement and research in the field, Allopathy is unable to provide CURE for a number of ailments. In this respect, Homeopathy has shown effective and proven results.
Very often the disease created by allopathic drugs is worse than the disease for which the drug had been administered, says the author who is eminently qualified to compare the two science. In this masterly first of its kind book, the author lists specific ailments to prove his case. For instance, where in chronic Sinusitis, decongestants like Coldrin, Action 500, Actified, Cetrizine etc. simply mask the symptoms without treating the cause, Kali Bio, Belladona and Calcarea Sulph provide effective cure.
In on case of Skin allergy where dermatologists had suggest anti-allergic treatment, Natrum Mur 1M provided the permanent cure. For Menorrdagia at menopause while a particular patient was treated with hormone replacement treatment, Gynae CVP and advised hysterectomy was cured with Homeopathy.
Surgery was avoided by Homeopathy in conditions like Prolapse uterus, Piles, Warts etc. In addition, the book lists specific Homeopathic medicines and treatment given in different cases- besides a section on frequently asked questions.
About the Author:
He holds MBBS from Amritsar, Punjab University and FRCS in ENT from UK. It was not too long after getting his FRCS that he became consultant in this speciality in England and then Head of ENT department in Norway. During his tenure as Consultant spaning almost two decades in west he taught the post-graduate students and carried out major surgeries in his speciality.
In eighties, he got disenchanted with the results of Allopathy in some diseases. He proceeded to USA to get his membership in Homeopathy. After having his extensive knowledge in Allopathy and Homeopathy, he applied both systems of medicines depending upon the disease, condition and economical status of the patients.
His role aim while treating a patient is that treatment should CURE be SAFE and ECONOMICAL; should be without side-effects. With more than twenty years of experience in both the branches he has written this book.
Dr. S.C Madan holds M.B.B.S. from Punjab University,
ER.CS. (E.N.T.) from Great Britain and membership in Homeopathy from U.S.A.
He has extensive experience in all branches of
medicine, especially in his speciality of E.N.T. He was Chief
of E.N.T. department in England and Scandinavian
countries. He has been practising and teaching Ear, Nose
and Throat for more than thirty years.
Dr. Madan has been using homeopathic medicines in
addition to allopathy, from time to time, for the last twenty
years, to help the sick in special situations where allopathy
was bound to fail owing to its disastrous adverse effects
or when it was going to give only temporary relief,
compared to permanent cure with homeopathy.
Dr. Madan is convinced that homeopathy, if properly
chosen, can give miraculous results in diseases like sinusitis,
bronchial asthma, arthritis and gynae diseases, where
allopathy -is only palliative. He has brought to bear his
extensive comparative knowledge of allopathy and
homeopathy to the best advantage of the patient.
Dr. Subhash Madan is a well established experienced Senior
E.N.T. surgeon in Delhi. He got his fellowship in E.N.T.
from Royal College of Surgeons, Great Britain way back
in sixties and practised there for some years.
On return to India, he has kept a full record of his
patients here. He has observed through his own experience
that the allopathic drugs have a lot of side-effects and in
his majority of cases they do not benefit the patients to the
extent he had thought them to. This made him shift his
attention to the Homeopathy drugs. He went to U.S.A. to
get training in Homeopathy. But that did not mean that he
stopped surgery. He still believes and does surgery if it is
needed. He is one of the top surgeons in his speciality
Going through the case sheets, he cites various cases
where allopathic medicines have not worked and
homeopathic medicines not only improved the condition
of the patient but 'cured' their diseases. In a case of common
cold, upper respiratory cattarrh or influenza, he has
compared the allopathic cough syrups, anti-allergic drugs
and anti-inflammatory drugs with the homeopathic drugs.
In bronchial asthma, he seems to have cured even cases
of status asthmatics. Similarly are the cases of diabetes and
heart diseases cited.
These days with our vast scientific knowledge of
various diseases, we allopaths try to find the real cause
of the symptom which the patient presents to the doctor.
The symptom, no doubt, is treated so that the patient gets
comfortable, but these days more attention is paid to the
cause or pathology of the cause of the symptom. In a case
of common cold, URTI or flu, we modern allopaths prescribe
cough syrups, anti-allergic drugs or anti-inflammatory
drugs. All these drugs dry the throat and bronchial tree
and, thus, produce more cough and bring in superadded
bacterial infection. We give steam inhalation and if these
are viral in origin, they get relieved within 3-5 days. If
there is yellow or green sputum, we give antibiotics which
have no parallel in homeopathic treatment. Similar are the
cases of sinuses, throat and ear. Nobody, according to my
knowledge, knows the cause of Bronchial asthma, but we
know the precipitating causes and the pathology in the
bronchi which produce asthma. We give relief to the patient
by treating the pathological lesion of inflammation and
constriction of bronchi but we cannot CURE asthma as
we really do not know its cause. The World Health
Organisation has researched on the medicines of
Homeopathy and Ayurveda but none have been able to
cure asthma. Similar is the case with diabetes, cancer and
This does not mean that Homeopathy or Ayurveda
systems of medicine are of no use. They are world
recognised systems of medicine. They are cheap and side-
effects are few. Allopathic medicines have great side-effects
and are expensive. The side-effects have to be measured
and weighed against the good effects produced by the
drugs. Even Aspirin has a very bad side-effect of
In the field of E.N.T., there are many chronic symptoms
of nose blocking, sinusitis, ear and throat trouble, where
at times even surgery does not help. According to Dr.
Madan, homeopathic medicines work wonders. Why not
try and give these drugs to relieve the patients' misery.
Similar should be the cases of other medical specialities.
Moreover, I do hear from relatives, friends and some
medical practitioners that for minor ailments, like
headaches, pain anywhere especially in abdomen, loose
stools where patients cannot wait and spend money for
the test to find the cause of these symptoms, homeopathic
medicines work and work well. But beware that you get
the advice from a recognized homeopath like Dr. Madan
who will give appropriate medicine and take less time to
We, in medical profession, must have an open mind.
Our sole aim is to give relief to the patient and to diagnose
him properly. I wish Dr. Madan a great success in his sincere
service to the mankind.
This book is dedicated to the memory of my parents and
brothers. In the last days of their ailment, I found allopathy
had nothing much to offer except palliative treatment and
prolonging their suffering.
My consciousness has compelled me to write this book
in the best interest of the patient and to familiarize the medical
practitioners (both Allopath and Homeopath) as to what is
the best treatment for a particular ailment.
In my experience of more than 30 years, I feel
disappointed to see the number of diseases caused by adverse
and toxic side-effects of allopathic drugs.
Very often the disease created by allopathic drugs is
worse than the disease for which the drug had been given.
On the other hand, I have seen certain conditions which could
be cured with a stroke of knife, but Homeopaths had been
giving medicines for months and years, resulting only in the
proving effects of the remedy and asking the patient in
terminal stages to go to a surgeon.
My advice is while crossing the road, see both the Red
and Green lights; only then we are safe. So is the case with
medicine, whether allopathy or homeopathy.
We must compare the merits and demerits of a particular
branch of medicine in relation to a particular ailment before
Having had the experience of treating thousands of
patients with allopathy & homeopathy and surgery, I can say
with confidence that for most chronic diseases, allopathy is
a failure and is only a smoke-screen against fire and does
not remove the cause.
In acute conditions, allopathy, no doubt, acts as a miracle
but to cure the cause, homeopathy is indispensable.
Comparison is the basic theme of this book. In brief,
I have found homeopathy is safer, cheaper, curative and easily
available. However, it cannot replace absolute surgical cases
or life-saving antibiotics and there I have counteracted the
side-effects of allopathic drugs with homeopathy, made the
post- and pre-operative surgical treatment smoother and
comfortable with homeopathy,
The purpose of this book is to bridge the gap between
allopathy and homeopathy,
It will not be out of place to mention a few words about
homeopathy which will be of help for an allopath to
Homeopathy is essentially a natural healing process
providing remedies to help the patient regain normal health
by stimulating the body's natural forces of recovery. First
connection between homeopathy and allopathy was small pox
or DPT vaccination. In each case, a substance was taken in
order to prevent illness.
VACCINATION is nothing but HOMEOPATHY.
LIKE TREATS LIKE is the basic theme in Homeopathy,
Cold drinks can bring convulsions, if you take them when
heated. Hot drinks can save you.
If a substance produces symptoms in a healthy person,
the same person can treat a diseased person having the like
symptoms, e.g., onions and garlic can cause sneezing, watery
nose. These very substances can cure a person suffering from
these symptoms. There is nothing strange about homeopathy,
rather it has been an unrecognized part of our life.
Lastly, many homeopaths may be critical of my line of
treatment as unconventional and not following the principle
of Hanemann, by giving single remedy rather than
polypharmacy (multiple). Things change, theories change with
the changing circumstances. These days symptoms are
complex owing to the use of multiple allopathic medicines.
The other physicians may be critical of my using both branches
of medicine (allopathy & homeopathy). My aim is to cure
the patient in an economical way.
Homeopathy can act as a miracle, if applied correctly.
Unlike the common view that homeopathy is absolutely safe, that is not the case. If used indiscriminately by quacks or
for unlimited periods by amateurs, it can do more harm than
good, as you will find illustrated examples in this book.
Finally, I discount the various theories and arguments
put in various medical journals and in the media in Western
countries, from time to time, that Homeopathy is not a science
but Allopathy is a science. If that is the case, may I ask such
1. Was Thalidamide not scientifically proved before it struck
2. What about Practolal (Eraldin) used in heart conditions
in 60s which had to be withdrawn because of its side-
effects. There is an endless list I can provide of diseases
caused by so-called 'scientifically-proved' drugs. Recent
examples are of Terfenadine and Cisapride?
3. Was Viox (Cox-B inhibitor) for arthritis not Scientifically
proved, before it is withdrawn suddenly?
4. Was Sysapride not scientifically proved, but now banned?
Conclusively, I would like to say that except in acute
conditions or surgical conditions, allopathy should be used
with caution, explaining to the patient the merits and demerits
of the treatment.
It is a pity that in many states in U.S.A., Homeopathy
is not allowed legally. I am of the opinion that those physicians
who think Homeopathy is a farce, they do not know what
they are missing.
I have the impression that if Homeopathy does not work,
it is the homeopath who is at fault and not the Homeopathy.
In this book, I have dealt with (a) Common diseases;
and (b) Intractable diseases.
