 Anacardium Orientale anacardium orientale Semecarpus anacardium English: Marking-nut tree, Malacca bean French: Anacarde, Anacardien, Anacarde a feuilles longues, Feve de Malac German: Elephantenlaus, Malakka-nuss, Elephantem Laeusebaum, Anakardiem baum Italian: Anacardos Dutch: Anacardienboom, Hartjes Spanish: Anacard Bengal: Belaluhi Natural order: Terebinthinaceae. Family Jussieu [vegetable substance] -- Pentandria digynia, L. The name is derived from two Greek words, ana -- without, and cardium -- a heart, because the pulp of the fruit, instead of having the seed enclosed, has the nut growing out at the end of it. There was a discrepancy as to whether Anacardium was the nut of the Semecarpus anacardium, or the Marking-nut Tree, or the seed of the Avicenna tomentosa, or Malacca bean, but as Hahnemann described the nut, it leaves no doubt that he was talking about the Semecarpus anacardium.   The essential features The concept of inner conflict or of mental schism is central to Anacardium. There is a rather specific dimension to the conflict; that is, it focuses on the desire of the individual to prove himself to others of importance to him and to the world. The conflict arises because, despite this determined will to prove himself, the person suffers from a profound inferiority [...]

  (George Vithoulkas describes the homeopathic remedy Bismuth, carefully distinguishing it from Arsenicum and Phosphorus.)   Bismuth is a remedy which should be thought of in cases where the focus of the problem lies in the stomach region. Severe stomach pain of whatever origin is a strong indicator for this remedy, particularly in cases of pure gastritis, and inflammation of the mucous lining of the stomach. The Bismuth patient’s face is earthy, pale, with blue rings around eyes; there is great thirst for cold drinks in the evening, nausea and pressure in stomach after eating with great drowsiness in the morning. He may experience flushes of heat over head and chest and feel prostrated. Any derangement in the health of the individual has repercussions on the stomach; thus Bismuth may be classed with the group of remedies whose common factor is a weakness in the stomach region, such as: Nat-c., Ant-c., Nux-v., Rob., Kali-c and Kreosotum The characteristics of the Bismuth gastritis are severe burning, pinching, cramping or lancinating pains with violent vomiting of enormous quantities of food. The epigastric pain usually extends to the spine. The pain is temporarily relieved by drinking cold water, but as soon as the [...]

Assessing Human Health – Correlation Of Autoimmune Diseases With Chemically Suppressed Acute Infections Of Patient’s Past Medical History

By |2017-03-29T16:28:51+05:00March 29, 2017|Categories: Autoimmune Disorders, George Vithoulkas, Homeopathic Awareness, Professional|Tags: |

S. Kivellos  and G. Vithoulkas According to Prof. G. Vithoulkas’ theory of  “Levels of Health”, patients are classified into different levels of health. The criteria used for this classification are based on the immune responses of the body to different disease agents and treatments. It has been observed that sometimes after an acute disease, an autoimmune disease emerges, which has a direct relation to the acute and also to the medications used in the case. Such a reaction usually is attributed to the side effects of the medication. After such an emergence of a chronic auto-immune disease, the organism stops developing acute infections, that were manifesting regularly in the past. The fact for instance that an organism does not develop any acute diseases, can be interpreted in two ways: a) the body is very healthy or, b) the body cannot manifest an acute disease due to a compromised immune system. In this study is examined the ability of the organism to maintain a high fever in acute conditions as a protector of later development of autoimmune conditions. Consequently, there is a need to scientifically approach the fact that the treatment of acute diseases can lead in two opposite directions: it can either bring about a [...]

  Reprinted Courtesy the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy (IACH) Dear Rector Prof. Ludmila Gerasimova, Vice Rector Prof. Tamara Denisova, Director of Homeopathic Center Dr. Nadezhda Pakhmutova, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, This is the year of Russian Greek friendship and it is my hope and wish that will last forever. Our therapeutic methodology is one of peace and balance that can bring union, love and friendship between people and countries that today are in a turmoil and aggression. This Homeopathic therapeutic methodology, established 200 years ago, by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann, is starting now to be accepted in several open, pioneering medical institutions of higher learning. The world today is desperately searching for avenues to improve the treatment of degenerative diseases. It is therefore a blessing that medical schools are opening their doors to a therapeutic modality that can bring about a feeling of integration and serenity within suffering individuals. This decision of the senate will be hailed by us as the turning point in global medicine and I am sure will be appreciated highly by the future generations. This affiliation with your esteemed University, the State Autonomous University of Chuvash Republic, I hope to become a work place [...]

The Controversy Over the “Memory of Water” (George Vithoulkas)

  For a very long time, the idea of the “memory of water” tantalized not only the homeopathic community, but also serious scientists and researchers like Luc Antoine Montagnier, a recipient of the Nobel Prize. This misconception originated from an experiment conducted by the famous allergologist, Dr. Jacques Benveniste. He claimed to have shown in an in vitro experiment that highly dilute potencies of bee poison (apis mellifica), even beyond the Avogadro number, are capable of producing structural changes in living organisms in the same way that the real poison from the bee can bring these changes about, being the actual degranulation of basophils. His paper was published in Nature under an obligation to prove his findings in front of a scientific committee in his own laboratory. Benveniste could not reproduce the results that his team was claiming. When a similar experiment was repeated by a different group of scientists and filmed by the BBC, it also failed. While it was obvious that the experiment was proved to be false, the scientific community concluded, by an extension of logic, that since the experiment was false, therefore homeopathy must also be a false system of therapy. Despite the fact that the [...]

Homeopathy and healthcare: an interview with Professor George Vithoulkas Abstract In an age of increasing commercialism and advertisements, we often find saner voices suppressed or go unheard amidst the din and noise of these prevalent views. However alternate views exist like parallel universes, unseen yet strongly influencing us, drawing our heart and mind towards a deeper hidden reality. Homeopathy is one such world-view that looks at man from a different and holistic viewpoint than merely as a bundle of chemicals or a mechanical machine. As cracks begin to appear in our healthcare delivery system and promises of ultimate therapy through allopathy, more and more attention is turning towards alternate approaches of which homeopathy is among the most well-recognised and trusted method of treatment. The following interview gives us a brief but incisive overview of this alternate field of medicine that continues to help and heal many despite the strictures passed upon it by the proponents of mainstream medicine. Introduction The rapid development of medicine in the 20th century, due to the large-scale implementation of breakthroughs in chemistry, biology and applied technologies (electronics, laser technology, etc.), seemed like a miracle, possibly capable of addressing some of the most painful problems in [...]

The Future of Homeopathy – A Perspective View

By |2016-07-23T08:00:51+05:00July 16, 2016|Categories: George Vithoulkas, Homeopathic Awareness|Tags: , , , , |

There is an overall impression that homeopathy is used today by millions of people and practiced by hundreds of thousands of practitioners all over the world … which is true! Whether the practitioners are capable of using this new force in medicine in an appropriate way is a totally different story. The homeopathic field of medicine is so open to all kind of interventions, distortions and bad practice that its original form is almost totally masked or lost and its effectiveness reduced to a mere 10% of its capabilities. This minimal 10% derives mainly from a small group of practitioners that have followed the original teachings of S. Hahnemann and the right lines of applications. The effect of those practitioners in their private practice is near 70-80% of success. These practitioners were recognised as classical homeopaths, but soon a lot of intruders attached to their name this qualification in order to confuse the public and get a portion of the clientele. Though Homeopathy’s overall effectiveness is low due to its bad application by most of its practitioners, in the minds of the people it has been established as a form of medicine that is better and more effective than conventional [...]

Getting in touch with the correct remedy – Homeopathic Case Taking Series: George Vithoulkas

  In order to find the right remedy, the practitioner has to understand the importance of the symptoms given and of those withheld.  He must also meet certain inner conditions if the patient is to trust him. To find the right homœopathic remedy, the simillimum as it is called, means to save the patient much suffering.  It means that he* is given a great boon: the possibility of becoming healthy and happy once again. A healthy person is one who is free on all three levels of his existence — mental, emotional, and physical — and is therefore able to have a sense of well-being, a condition vital to a true sense of happiness.  Therefore finding the correct remedy for a diseased individual gives this possibility, which is of course something of immeasurable value. I would like to consider, first, the difficulties that attend such a task, and, second, the inner conditions that should prevail on the part of the patient and of the homœopath in order to maximize the likelihood of such a fortunate outcome.   Difficulties inherent in finding the simillimum First, let’s look at the difficulties that the practitioner must overcome in order to arrive at the right remedy.  [...]
