Argentum metallicum – The Soul of Remedies by Dr Rajan Sankaran

By |2020-12-05T00:44:41+05:00December 5, 2020|Categories: Professional|0 Comments

Argentum (Silver) belongs to the second line of metals in the Periodic Table, where it lies between copper and gold. Like other metal remedies, Argentum metallicum sees his survival in performance and defence. The metals of the second line are concerned with show. Silver is a showy metal, a shiny metal, a showpiece of human society. A good orator is called silver-tongued. Funnily enough Argentum metallicum has the  symptom: “Tongue has a silver coating”. It is said “Silence is golden, speech is silver”. Silver is not the noble one but always the showy one. There is a strong intellectual component in Argentum metallicum. Kent says it singles out mainly the intellectual faculty, it scarcely affects the emotion. The Argentum metallicum situation is one where the person has to perform intellectually and express himself through speech, singing, writing, etc., and also has to defend himself by intellect, speech and words. In Argentum metallicum one of the most important symptoms is aggravation from using voice, aggravation from speaking, singing, mental exertion. He can argue and fight very strongly and hard, not only for himself but also for others. He has the ability to convince others and win over the opposition with intellect; hence, the Argentum metallicum person would make a very good [...]

Anhalonium lewinii – The Soul of Remedies by Dr Rajan Sankaran

By |2020-12-05T00:33:26+05:00December 5, 2020|Categories: Professional|0 Comments

Anhalonium is a “drug” remedy. It is prepared from Peyotl the cactus from which mescaline is extracted. It belongs to the cancer miasm. The experience of mescaline is often one of merging with one’s surroundings or the feeling of being one with the whole of existence, seeing oneself without any boundaries. This is close to the highest spiritual experience as described in Hindu or Buddhist philosophy as oneness or nonduality of Spirit. This experience implies immortality – what dies is the body; as the Self is continuous with the whole of existence, it cannot be mortal. The need for such an experience arises from the feeling of having no roots, of having no identity, of feeling totally isolated and separated from other human beings, so that one sees one’s ego as being separate and being totally mortal. This can create immense fear of losing one’s very existence which is much more than the mere fear of death. The easiest way to experience this loss of existence is for a person to ask himself the question: “Who am I, if I remove my name?” Just imagine that you don’t have a name and you are not allowed to invent a name for yourself [...]

Anacardium orientale – The Soul of Remedies by Dr Rajan Sankaran

By |2020-12-05T00:30:50+05:00December 4, 2020|Categories: Professional|0 Comments

Anacardium Orientale is a plant. The remedy belongs to the cancer miasm. The situation of Anacardium is that of a kind of child abuse. Overstrict parents impose all their desires on the child and do not allow him to think or do anything on his own. He cannot take his own decisions, to the extent that he is not allowed even to decide what clothes he should wear. If he starts taking his own decisions or does not live up to the expectations placed upon him, he will be punished cruelly. So he tries to live up to these expectations by being obedient and angelic in his behaviour, and by being excellent in his work. But he begins to develop a lack of self confidence, and becomes nervous. He is irresolute, because the outcome of his decisiveness is usually a severe punishment. If the domination persists and he is compelled to put up with it, he starts reacting with cruelty, malice, want of moral feeling, and antisocial behaviour. Here he may also develop a tremendous overconfidence with contempt for others. But Anacardium can be very hard and cruel, and at the same time have a lack of self-confidence. There are thus two sides to [...]

Ambra grisea – The Soul of Remedies by Dr Rajan Sankaran

By |2020-12-04T23:47:28+05:00December 4, 2020|Categories: Professional|0 Comments

Ambra grisea is an animal remedy. It belongs to the sycotic miasm. Like other animal remedies it has the quality of divided will. It has two wills and has a kind of contempt for self. It also has traits such as animation, loquacity, sexuality, playfulness, love of animals, etc. It is a sycotic remedy; an Ambra grisea woman feels that something is wrong with her that needs to be covered up. There is an intensely dirty feeling about herself. The expression “I feel like shit” aptly describes the main feeling of Ambra. The feeling is that something in her is intensely disgusting and that this part should never be exposed or she will be completely forsaken. Ambra feels a tremendous sense of embarrassment. Other remedies like Silicea, Carbo vegetabilis, Plumbum, Gelsemium, etc., also have something of this feeling, but Ambra feels it intensely and is acutely conscious of the slightest thing she does. This embarrassment is more when it comes to personal habits like passing stool and urine. The symptom of Ambra: “Cannot pass stool in presence of others” describes this feeling exactly as if to say that “this disgusting part in me should never be revealed to others or they [...]

Alumina – The Soul of Remedies by Dr Rajan Sankaran

By |2020-12-05T00:59:29+05:00December 4, 2020|Categories: Professional|0 Comments

Alumina is the oxide of the metal Aluminium. In the Periodic Table, Aluminium belongs to group III-A and is associated with Boron (from which the remedy Borax is made). Alumina is one of the greatest anti-syphilitic remedies along with Syphilinum, Aurum and Mercurius. In Syphilinum, there is a total absence of hope which is one of the most essential things to the life of a human being. Phatak mentions: “Hopeless despair of recovery” – total hopelessness. Therefore Syphilinum is a remedy of death and destruction, he can be suicidal or homicidal. In Mercurius, the person’s independence, another thing essential for life, has been taken away, and so he becomes revolutionary, defiant, homicidal or suicidal. Then you have a need for acceptance in society, some religious feelings; you take this away from man and you have Aurum – suicide again. In Alumina, the person’s identity or individuality has been taken away, and there is confusion. The Alumina person’s identity has been so much suppressed that he doesn’t know who he is anymore. He is so confused because someone has tried to shape him into something that he is not. It is one of the most important remedies for confusion of identity in our Materia Medica. The situation of Alumina may arise [...]

Aconitum napellus – The Soul of Remedies by Dr Rajan Sankaran

By |2020-12-04T20:09:15+05:00December 4, 2020|Categories: Professional|0 Comments

Aconitum napellus is a plant. The remedy prepared from it belongs to the acute miasm and is, in fact, the most acute of all our remedies. The main feeling of Aconitum is of a sudden, intense threat from outside that comes suddenly and goes suddenly. For that moment the person, who is otherwise calm becomes intensely restless, panicky and nervous. This feeling of a sudden threat is seen in the fear of walking across a busy street, fear of accidents, of suffocation, in presentiment of death and in the delusion that he is about to die. Mentally this is expressed as a fear of death, anxiety and restlessness etc., while in the physical sphere, we find a racing pulse, palpitation and flushing of face alternating with paleness, etc. Aconitum is excitable. The patient can flare up suddenly, can get frightened very easily. Pain can drive him beside himself and again this excitement will be manifested suddenly and violently, with great restlessness – an acute panic reaction. Great nervous excitability is the most important component of Aconitum. We must look for an excitable person and not a calm one, if we are to prescribe Aconitum – one who cannot take anything [...]

The Soul of Remedies by Dr Rajan Sankaran

By |2020-11-29T15:14:34+05:00November 29, 2020|Categories: Professional|0 Comments

Introduction For a long time I hesitated to write a book on remedies because I am well aware of the dangers inherent in such an undertaking. In the first place, there is a strong possibility that the reader, especially if he is a beginner in the field, might become fixed on these remedy pictures and forget that every remedy has a wider range and greater scope than any one individual can see or describe. Not realising that these pictures represent only one version, only one view of the remedy, he might wrongly imagine that he had seen the whole. I also realise that an idea imperfectly communicated which might easily be corrected in a "Live" teaching situation, is far less easily rectified when it has been committed to print. Finally there is a danger that the reader's Materia Medica may be narrowed down to the limited number of remedies described here; it may create a tendency to try to fit all patients into one of these pictures; thus young practitioners might fail to make the unprejudiced search through the Repertory or the more complete Materia Medica which the best prescribing requires. However, in the last two or three years, my [...]

اکتوبر کا مہینہ تعلیمی سرگرمیوں اور کچھ سیر و تفریح کی وجہ سے مسلسل سفر میں گزرا۔ اس دوران میں بے شمار لوگوں سے ملنا ملانا بھی رہا۔ سخت سردی بلکہ برف باری میں وقت گزرا تو کہیں پسینہ سے شرابور کیفیت سے دوچار رہے۔ کہیں کرونا کے اثرات کی گونج رہی تو کہیں جیسے اس کی کچھ خبر ہی نہیں تھی۔ اس بھاگ دوڑ، میل ملاپ اور دعوتوں خدمتوں میں کچھ ایسا ہوا کہ جو عام نزلہ زکام، کھانسی، گلا خرابی، مسلسل چھینکوں، سردی وغیرہ سے زیادہ اور مختلف تھا۔ خود کو الگ تھلگ کرنے تک گھر کے افراد میں بھی ایسی ہی کیفیات نمودار ہونا شروع ہو گئیں۔ اللہ کا کرم ہوا کہ علاج کے دو تین دن بعد ہی سے دوسرے افراد نارمل ہو گئے۔ اپنے آپ کو علیحدہ کر لیا ہوا تھا۔ پروردگار کے کرم، فیملی کی خوب خاطرداری اور اپنے علاج سے اگرچہ صورتِ حال مکمل کنٹرول ہو گئی تاہم اپنا علاج میرے اپنے لئے کوئی خاص مفید نہ ہو پا رہا تھا۔ میرا خیال تھا کہ یہ ایسے ہی چلے گا اور ہفتہ دس دن بعد ہی واضح بہتری کا امکان ہو سکے گا۔ اس دوران ڈاکٹر بشرہ خان صاحبہ نے کسی حوالہ سے [...]
