Secrets And Facts of Evolution of Miasms & Homoeopathy

0

miasmThe science was invented by Dr Hahnemann (A German Philosopher, MD Allopathic Doctor, Multi linguist, Translator) who had claimed to have invented  New Principle of treatment much based on philosophy , written and rewritten six time with lots of amendments with lots of controversy and contradiction which has been assumed of unique type containing topics  like (1) Vital Force (2) Organon (3) New Principle (4) Observation (5) Disease Classification (6) Theory Of MINI MONO (7) Law of Similar (8) Genus Epidemicus  (9) Doctrine of Signature (10) Great Theory of MIASMS (11) Theory Of Dynamization.

 

I register that none of above was unique. On micro tracing almost all of his advocations are found to be derivatives of writings of ancient medicos or Medical philosophies, with few glimpses presented below.

 

Vide range similarity between philosophy of Indian System ( Ayurveda) and Homoeopathy   was  observed when a small book “ The Science of TRIDOSA” (page-V(32) ,That three cosmic elements has  convincingly  indicated that TRIDOSHA system fully embraces hearing’s doctrine  of law of direction of cure.

 

To confirm this, I compared characteristics of Basic Principles of  Ayurveda (Vat, Pitta & Kafa) from (1)to(4)and Miasms as mentioned in basic philosophy of homoeopathy ( Psora, Syphilis &Sycosis)from (9)to(16) and astonished to find enumerable symptoms comparable (similar) of Psora with Vat,  syphilis with Pitta and Sycosis with Kafa ( App- 1)

 

Also Quoting article by Dr. D.P. Agarwal and Lalit Tiwari “ Ayurveda : Traditional Indian Medicine system and it’s Global Dissemination”  that 16th century father of medicine Paracelsus borrowed heavily from Ayurveda because Basic Indian book Charak Samhita was translated in PARSIAN by Manak and in Arabic by Abdul Habib and all these books must be collected by Department of History of medicine which was started first time in world at Leipzig and at Brukenthal Palace (sibiu) Romania ,where work of Hippocrates, Galen  & Dioscorides  were  also stored.

 

On tracking the Life History of Hahnamann it was revealed that he had been a librarian and catalogist at Brukenthal (sibiu) libraly  (Page-4(18) and studied ANCIENT  SCIENCES  and LITERATURES & (Page-28(24)Different Languages during his stay for 20 months (1977-79) and started writing on various medical articles ,publication and translations.

 

Brief details of  topics as mentioned  in Para 1 is given  below

 THEORY OF VITAL FORCE -Before Dr. Hahnaman’s theory of Vital foce (  page-77 (20), there was theory of “VITAL PRINCIPAL” and LIFE FORCE Presented by Joseph Barhej (1734-1806) (page 14 (18)  and in RIG VEDA too (page 14 & 68 (34).

 

ORGANON -Dr. Hahnaman wrote a book named “ ORGANON OF MEDICINE” which is much similar to NOVUM ORGANUM written by Francis Bacon (1561-1626 AD) basically it refers to book named “ORGANUM”  by great philosopher ARISTOTLE (384-322 BC) who was student of Plato and Teacher of Alexander The Great. (Page 18(18).

 

PATIENT AS WHOLE -On Organon book, (page 13(18) , Dr. Hahnamann advocates  to treat                “sick  Man as Whole” but same was projected by GIONRIO BAGLIVI (1668-1706) SICK MAN” TO SAY “ Patient as whole”.

 

NEW PRINCIPLE -Dr. Hahnemann wrote an essay on “New Principle” but when it was searched back the Idea was of Hippocrate as stated by Dr. DD Benarjee  (page 11(18), “ that he had no other alternative than to depend on ideas of Hippocrate “         This depicts that H’man’s philosophy to some extent was percolated from basic ideology of Hippocrates.

 

OBSERVATION -Dr. Hahnaman insisted upon “power of observation before and after medication (page-13 (18), but before him Thomas Sydenham ( 1624-1689) reviver of Hippocratic theory of  POWER OF OBSERVATION AND EXPERIENCE that“ He should make note of observation made by him “ was prevalent in and  around medical world which indirectly denotes that  is not original brain product of Dr Hanamann.( page-76(20).

 

THEORY OF MINI MONO -Doctor Hahnemann’s philosophy of MINI MONO and SIMPLE substance was advocated in aphorism 272(Page-82(20), was pre existing in Ayurveda and made prevalent  as part of Hippocratic philosophy by Thomas Sydenham just before 17th century (page-13)18).

 

DISEASE CLASSIFICATION

In Aphorism 5,72 of Organon of Medicine Dr. Hahnamann classified disease in (1) Acute (2) chronic (20) but it was done during AD 100 by ARETAEUS (page-12) (18).

 

PRINCIPAL OF SIMILIA SIMILIBUS CURENTURE-Basic Principle as stated by Dr. Hahnaman is  “Let like be treated by likes” or “ similia simlibus curenture “ (page 27-(18) but it was existing prehistorically in Ayurveda as “let like be treated by like(Page-139(5) or “ similar attracts similar (Basic Principle of Ayurvedic Philosophy) also Dr. Dudgeon quotes a long list of authors who before Hahnemann  indicated clinical usefulness of LAW OF SIMILAR (21).

 

GENUS EPIDEMICUS-        While treating CHOLERA ASCIATICA he searched out term GENUS EPIDEMICUS  which was established by Thomas Sydenham (1624-1689) & others (page-2 (21), including HIPPOCRATES (22) ( It was known in Ayurveda in term of Janpadodhvansh)

 

“ DOCTRINE OF SIGNATURE Philosophy of of Homoeopathy( Specially Kents) had advocated  DOCTRINE OF SIGNATURE” which was existing at pre-vedic period hence it can’t be an unique to homoeopathy( Net down load-23 ).

Dr. Hahnaman’s Biography indicates that he had changed his home/residence about 20 times or more (page-7(18), with 11 children (page-513 (19) , how he could gather money and hire a people to  experiment on human being leave doubt about perfection of his work or there is areson to belive that something was pre fixed in his mind ,impregnated during his librarianship period.

 

THEORY OF MIASMS– In homoeopathy following constitution are described Psora,Syphilis, Sycosis (25 & 13), but when compared with TRI DOSAS OF AYURVEDA( VATA, PITTA & KOFA(2,4,5)  it stands similar & identical to Psora, Syphiliis & sycosis of homoeopath(app-1)

THEORY OF DYNAMIZATION -Further his pain and interest to learn various languages, his secret of joining as librarian after obtaining MD degree and finally declared to have true and rational mode of treatment i.e. DYNAMIZATION which had existed in Ayurveda in Name of BHASMA (Triturisation and Mili micro fine Powder preparation)(page-35 (29), Again referring to original article by Silvia Vaises Priven (MD PH.d) & others title “ Hahnemann  in Sibiu (33) which stated that “Dynamization  had strong roots in medieval ARABIC ALCAMAY and Hahnemann could have had  an access  to such sources  while he was at Sibiu.

 

 Dr Hahnemann selected Alcohol  which had power to penetrate deep  in to inert substance  and extract out back with curative power of medicinal  substance to be called MOTHER TINCTURE(36)in homoeopathy , same was known in Ayurveda called FANT/KWATH( water or other media base)(Page-7&28(29 ).

 

Hahnemann theory of dynamization says absence of visible subatance or particles an unique type of treatment but same was preexisting in name of ARC system of medicine in south Indian part called as Dravida way of drug preparation(30) His close  friends did not agree with his new ideas and speculation (page-4 (31) ,

 

And  last but not least that during  first word conference on history of Homoeopathy in April-1995 hot discussion had taken place on the point “ Did Hahnemann copy  PARACELSUS  (26)  the answer was yes from various commentators. It was quoted that  Dr. Hahnemann have avoided the to answer the question “ who is your role model”.

 

More light can be obtained from my flow chart (app.2) which will cater to the sources of ideas could have been impregnated, ignited and usheredup by Dr. Hahnemann before discovery of Homoeopathy.

 

Fascinating part of homoeopathic  philosophy is that after 12 years of practice Dr. H.man logically thought and discovered theory of MIASMS, something a new  but characters of MIASMS presented are almost parallel to that of Ayurvedic TRIDOSAJ (MIASMS) i.e. VATA, PITTA, KOFA (App-1) , it leaves a question why  so ?

 

In same book (32) Howard had stated that Homoeopathic medicine contains all three elements i.e. FIRE,AIR, & WATER have faculty of strengthening all the elements of DYNAMIC fields of body  (by virtue of principle  Similar attracts Similar prevalent in Ayurveda)

 

Dr. Hahnemann , had stayed and learnt various languages & studied ANCIENT SCIENCES AND PHILOSOPHIES OF MEDICAL STALWARTS ,  and supported by forgoing paragraphs we are convinced to understand that Dr. Hahnamann had been touched by ideas of Ancient medicos specially PARACELSUS (22) and had referred literatures of others (page-93(19) but history of Ayurveda denotes that they have visited Naland and Taxashila Universities of India (page-137,155,144,147(28) and(Page257 (35) have adopted Indian materia medica and philosophy of TRIDOSA

 

From above presentation it become self explanatory that philosophy of homoeopathy is miniature copy or extract of Indian medicine philosophy (Ayurveda)
