‘Predictive Homeopathy’- Is It ‘Scientific Homeopathy’ Or ‘Mystic Homeopathy’?
Let me quote from PREDICTIVE HOMOEOPATHY – PART II – THEORY OF ACUTES by Dr. Prafull Vijayakar:
“The mixture prescribers and single remedy similimum prescribers both may disagree with the pattern forwarded by me of Activity-Thermal-Thirst-Mental Axis. But then I have found this axis covering the holistic concept. The remedy thus evolved is a representative of one of each of the constituents that man is made up of. Man as we all know is a part of the Universe and is made up of five essential elements or the ‘Panchatatva’ which is accepted by Hindus, Chinese, Buddhists, Judaists and Mohammedans alike.
These five elements are: Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Ether.
Ether represents the cosmic energy which is all-pervading and which controls the activities of this universe as well as the activities of man. The Activity-Thermal-Thirst Axis based similimum is a true representative of the holistic man since the Activity represents Ether, the Thermals i.e. the heat regulatory mechanism of the body represents Fire, and Thirst which controls the osmolality i.e. water content of the body represents Water.
This covers three of the five essential elements which each human being is made up of. To this we add either a symptom from air (mind) or earth (body). This covers the man as a whole. So, the drug prescribed has a representative from each of the elements and hence works holistically to give miraculous cures in incurable or advanced or serious cases with minimum effort. Above all, Hering’s Law of Cure can also be observed in such cures. We will discuss more about it in my forthcoming book-The Theory of Chronic Diseases”
I have quoted this passage from the concludind part of a book by a person known to be a “scientific trend-setter” in modern homeopathy. (PREDICTIVE HOMOEOPATHY – PART II – THEORY OF ACUTES by Dr. Prafull Vijayakar)
This is a monumental example of presenting homeopathy in the most confusing and unscientific way, in the guise of SCIENTIFIC HOMEOPATHY. We should realize that this type of pseudo-scientific metaphysical theorizations contribute a lot in making homeopathy a subject of un-ending mockery before the scientific community.
Dr. Vijaykar claims: “The remedy thus evolved is a representative of one of each of the constituents that man is made up of. Man as we all know is a part of the Universe and is made up of five essential elements or the ‘Panchatatva’ which is accepted by Hindus, Chinese, Buddhists, Judaists and Mohammedans alike.”
I wonder whether Dr. Vijaykar is talking about medical science or religion! These theorizations may be “accepted by Hindus, Chinese, Buddhists, Judaists and Mohammedans alike”.
But is it accepted by scientific community?
Where did Dr. Samuel Hahnemann indicate that “similimum” should “cover all the five essential elements which each human being is made up of”, such as “Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Ether” in order it to be a “holistic” prescription?
How can my learned friend claim all these to be “CARDINAL PRINCIPLES” of homeopathy”?
ACTIVITY represents the ETHER. BODY represents EARTH. MIND represents AIr. HEAT regulation represents FIRE. THIRST represents WATER. This is the understanding of Dr Vijaykar regarding PANCHTATVA concept. SIMILIMUM is the drug that covers the SYMPTOMS representing these FIVE TATVAS. SIMPLE! This is the SCIENCE of homeopathy, according to a man calling himself EINSTEIN OF HOMEOPATHY!
DR. VIJAYKAR, ARE WE DISCUSSING “SCIENTIFIC HOMEOPATHY” OR “MYSTIC HOMEOPATHY”?
