The use of homeopathic medicines in curing non-communicable diseases can be explained by the use of the theory of immunology only which could not be done only by the use of the doctrine of homeopathy “like cures like or Similia Similibus Curantur”. If we could assist the system of homeopathy by the concept of “antigen-antibody” of immunology, it would have been easier for the ancient and modern schools of medicine to join hands in treating diseases by the attenuated forms of pathogenetic natural substances together with bacterial endotoxins which was developed by Jules T Freund (vide Freund’s complete and incomplete adjuvants). The followers of modern medicine failed to accept the concept of immunostimulation by the use of adjuvants due to the failure to apply the adjuvants by the injectable form, which was successful for the animal model. If the oral use of the adjuvants used in homeopathy could be made acceptable to the followers of modern medicine, the impediments of the concept of immunomodulation due to the failure of the application of the concept of immunostimulation by injectable form of adjuvants could have been overcome. Instead of using the artificially developed cytokines, if the cytokines could have been developed in human body by the application of attenuated adjuvants of homeopathy, the adverse reactions caused by the application of injectable form of cytokines in treating various viral diseases could have been eliminated with success in curing viral diseases like hepatitis, etc. This concept of homeopathic use of attenuated natural pathogenetic drugs from the early stage of diseases before the immune system has suffered great amount of damage caused by powerful immuno-suppressive drugs used in allopathy, it would have helped the scientists of modern medicine to avoid various therapeutic approaches which is causing diseases to be more incurable and economically more costly to be treated and making people less productive due to repeated and prolonged diseases.
Homeopathy can prevent and cure the following Auto-immune Diseases.
Auto-immune diseases are produced when bacteria and viruses enter into human body and take shelter in various organs inside cells. When they accumulate in large numbers, the immune system produce antibodies to attack and destroy them. During this process of action, they by mistake produce antibodies against the cells inside which the viruses have taken shelter. These antibodies destroy the viruses together with the cells. This can take place against the Kidneys and cause a disease named Glomerulonephritis. This disease is very commonly found and the only treatment is using steroids named Prednisolone injection, which slowly damages the kidneys and the next step is dialysis and kidney transplantation. These are all expensive treatments and involve a huge amount of money for the people as well as for the nation.
The following is a list of Auto-immune diseases which are caused by the viral attacks, which damages various organs and the conventional treatment is almost the same, that is to use the steroids to suppress or make the immune system inactive so that the body cannot produce the antibodies to destroy the viruses as well as the cells giving shelter to the viruses. These Auto-immune diseases are the majority of the diseases called non-communicable diseases, which make millions of people disabled and destroy their capability to contribute to the economy of the nations of the world. Some of the Auto-immune diseases are:
Autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura, Autoimmune urticaria, Autoimmune pancreatitis, Autoimmune hepatitis, Autoimmune hemolytic anemia, Autoimmune aplastic anemia, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Alopecia areata, Berger’s disease, Diabetes mellitus type 1, Discoid lupus erythematosus, Celiac disease, Glomerulonephritis, Gastritis, Myasthenia gravis, Rheumatic fever, Rheumatoid arthritis, Vitiligo, Psoriatic arthritis, Psoriasis, Systemic Lupus erythematosus (SLE), etc.
If Homeopathic treatment is applied for all these diseases before the viruses can enter deep into the cells and excite the immune system to make wrong decision to destroy the cells containing the viruses, that is before the onset of the process of autoimmunity, (which means the immune system acts against one’s own self), there would have been no occurrence of so many diseases and no loss of so many lives and consequently no loss of national and global exchequer.
To achieve this goal to combat Auto-immune diseases, the homeopathic practitioners should not feel disturbed by the cumbersome names of the diseases. We shall have to remember only few aspects, such as:
(1) The Auto-immune diseases are caused by repeated suppression of symptoms like fever, pain, etc. from our early life by the application of anti-pyretic (anti-fever), anti-allergic, anti-diarrheal, medicines of conventional (allopathic) system of medicine, which prevents the killing of bacteria and viruses.
(2) Suppression of skin diseases like eczema, dandruff, etc. by non-steroidal or steroidal ointments; ear, nose and eye drops, etc. which stop the process of elimination of toxic substances.
(3) Surgical removal of organs like tonsils, appendix, gall bladder, etc. which damages normal functioning of the immune system.
(4) Use of cosmetics for screening sunrays and help anti-aging, which destroys saprophytes (healthy bacteria).
Above all, all the diseases from the early life should be treated homeopathically and it possible, would be parents should be treated, even at the time of pregnancy, by homeopathy to prevent bacteria and viruses from entering into the fetus by crossing the placental barrier.
For those, who are already attacked with Auto-immunity, can be treated and cured by homeopathy by selecting medicines which arouses the reactive vitality of the system to bring the suppressed symptoms to the surface (as Dr. H. C Allen wrote in his book “ The Materia Medica Of Nosodes”), and to apply homeopathic medicine based on the new symptoms.
In this way, we can achieve the goal of keeping the mischievous micro-organisms from entering and establishing their domain inside our healthy human body, to confuse our intelligent immune system to take wrong decisions to generate antibodies to destroy our vital cells instead of viruses.
When we discussed about cancer, we have shown how viruses changed the human DNA into viral DNA and produced cancerous cells. This condition of human body is caused when viruses are allowed to stay for a long period of time without being destroyed immediately after entry, is called “immune deficiency”. This condition is caused by the disorder of the immune system. Now we shall explain another disorder of the immune system, which is called auto-immunity, which is the cause of millions of diseases, not curable by any existing system of medicine. In a normal human body, insulin is produced in the beta cell of the pancreas, which helps to digest sugar in the blood and protect us from diabetes.
When viruses enter into our body and stay for a longer time, they enter into the pancreas and take shelter in the beta cells and also get attached to the insulin particles. When the numbers of viruses exceed a certain limit, the B cells of our immune system get alert and begin to produce either “anti-beta cell antibody” or “anti-insulin antibody” to destroy the viruses. This is a mistake on the part of our immune system, which never make such mistakes in a normal situation. But when the concentration of the viruses become high, our intelligent immune system lose its capacity to differentiate between the self and non-self substances of our body and become prone to make mistakes to create antibody to destroy substances vitally important for our body. This mistake produces innumerable diseases called auto-immune diseases like diabetes, arthritis, rheumatic fever, kidney diseases (Glomerulonephrites), etc. Due to this mistake, our most reliable defense system become hostile against its host and begin to do a mischievous act of creating incurable diseases.
In fact, the condition of auto-immunity is caused by immune-deficiency, which allowed the viruses to stay longer and created a situation which compelled the immune system to be misguided and damaged our vitally important substances. Hence diabetes is a pre-cancerous condition which leads towards the process of cancer.
As we mentioned in our earlier blog post about cancer, this hindrance in killing the viruses by the B and T cells is caused by drugs like acetaminophen and antihistamine to get prompt relief from the sufferings for mobilizing the killer B and T cells. Instead, if we could use the well selected homeopathic remedy to assist the process of generating antibody to destroy the foreign micro invaders before they get time to penetrate deep and to achieve their goal of creating a permanent abode at the cost of destroying the purity of our internal physiological environment and to cause irreversible damage to our healthy system.
