Mind - Body ConnectionBODY MIND CONNECTION IN HOMEOPATHY
There is no line that can be drawn between the physical and the mental/emotional processes
They are inextricable linked and cannot be separated
HOW CAN THE BODY AND MIND BE SEPARATE
FEAR CAUSES A WHITE FACE
ANGER CAUSES A RED FACE
SADNESS CAUSES A WET FACE?
Every emotion you feel has an effect on your body, every thought you have involves a neurological process, every physical change from the norm is accompanied by a corresponding mental/emotional state. Sometimes it will be obvious, sometimes subtle, (sometimes denied, but denial is an emotional state too). Yet the idea of treating the body and mind separately (allopathy) ignores this truth and so how can it be the in the best interests of the patient?
'The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul and, if the head and body are to be healthy, you must begin by curing the mind... for this is the great error of our day in the treatment of the human body, that physicians first separate the soul from the body' - Written by Plato in the fifth century BC, echoed by Hahnemann two centuries ago and just as true today as it ever was.
Every physical disharmony is accompanied by a change in the mental/emotional sphere and vica-versa. i.e. any mental/emotional state, especially if profound or of long duration is capable of causing physical ill health and any physical disease is bound to result in a change in the mental/emotional state, this is true in both acute and chronic illness. How then can any medical system that views them as separate and which treats them separately, be effective? This is why the basis of 'holistic' medicine is that these are not regarded as separate but simply aspects of the 'whole'.
Therefore homeopathy, a holistic system, always honours the body-mind connection, both in the casetaking and in the choice of remedy. Its remedies are effective for, and simultaneously treat, both mental/emotional and physical conditions, whether they appear to exist separately or together.
I request all members to give a detailed listing of their mental / emotinal symptoms at the time of posting their case in addition to the physical symptoms.
