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 If the patient is being concurrently seen by a homeopath, the drugs as prescribed by the allopath should not be withdrawn without mutual discussion.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 level.
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.
