Pramod, a software professional aged around 25 years walked into our clinic sometime a year ago with complaints of dry cough and difficulty in breathing, mostly in later part of the night and morning on waking, since 2 years. He had failed to improve despite treatments by consultants of various specialities including respiratory, E.N.T. and so on.

A careful investigation into the lifestyle of Pramod helped us understand that his problem originated from the gastrointestinal system rather than the respiratory system. Asimple modification in his lifestyle and routine lead to a rapid improvement in his health and a complete recovery in a few months.

WHAT WAS PRAMOD SUFFERING FROM? GERD- Gastroesophageal Reflux DiseaseFood that we consume stays in the stomach for 3 hours, when it is broken down into simpler particles by the hydrochloric acid secreted in the stomach which ensures an easier digestive process when the food reaches the intestine later. Nature has designed the stomach in a way that it can withstand the acidic nature of Hcl. It has also ensured that this acid does not reflux into the food pipe (Oesophagus),by a valve at the lower end of the food pipe, which remains always closed and opens only when food enters from the oesophagus into the stomach. This a delicate structure which can’t withstand the onslaught of the acid. Various factors including faulty lifestyle contributes to the valve becoming lax and the resultant acid reflux.

Homoeopathy, an ultra-modern system of medicine, founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann of Germany in the year 1796, has been helping alleviate health related issues of many a generation of people around the world and in turn help improve their quality of life.

This scientific world which has always been sceptical about the action of Homoeopathy, thanks to the development in the scientific arena in the past few decades like nano technology, epigenetics,etc..have helped unravel the modus operandi of Homoeopathy.

Homoeopathy accords equal importance to Diagnosis and Investigations along with the individualistic symptoms of the patient. This unique combination, peculiar only to Homoeopathy, helps in understanding the disease process and also to arrive at the appropriate Homoeopathic medicine which ensures the effective management of the diseases.

Homoeopathic medicines play an important role in the prevention of “SUPER-BUGS”, which have recently created an havoc in the health care management globally, by effectively treating the acute diseases like Upper Respiratory Tract Infections, Gastroenteritis, Tonsilitis, etc.,

Homoeopathy is equally effective in the management of chronic diseases and in the prevention of long term complications associated with life-style disorders like Metabolic Syndrome, etc., thereby, improving the quality of life.

Diseases until recently were thought to originate at the cellular level and were managed accordingly with medicines of a considerable dose but the recent development in genetics have made clear that the real source of disease lies in the genes and its expressions, the correction of which requires a minimal dose of medicine. This justifies the use of minimal dose in Homoeopathy which has always maintained the role of genes and its expressions in the origin of a disease.

Homoeopathy being an holistic medicine understands the importance of diet, exercise and psychology in maintaining the state of health of an individual and uses them judiciously in the treatment process.
