“Homeopathy is on a fast track to becoming a more important system of medicine”

Shefali Tokas, Stoney Creek, Ontario The belief that a human body, the most sophisticated machinery that is yet to be fully decoded, is made up of a combination of five basic elements and that their imbalance causes ill health, runs very deep in every Indian family. There are three commonly practiced systems of medicines in India,  Naturopathy based on traditional ancient system of medicine called Ayurveda, Homeopathy and Allopathy. It would not be too uncommon to find families practicing all three at the same time for any illness and my family was a classic example of the kind. It is often the case that many of our beliefs and passions stem from our experiences in childhood days. In my case, homeopathy has been an integral part of my life, as a child, as an adult and now also as a mother. Over the years I have witnessed many examples of the success of homeopathy, too many to be listed here in fact, I would only like to mention that I completely believe in its’ effectiveness. My decision to become a homeopath therefore was a natural one. I would like to continue a legacy that I have inherited from my family, my culture and my country. I understand the Homeopathic principles quiet well and have grown up reading Materia Medica and other books on this subject. Having watched my grandfather, who was a homeopathic doctor and my parents, who also acquired considerable knowledge over the years, it is natural for me to view the human body holistically, and to identify symptoms that may be directly or indirectly  linked to an illness.  Through self study and practice, I have also acquired an understanding of several homeopathic medicines which I have frequently and successfully used for myself and my family. On my approach to other systems of medicine, I believe all the three forms of medicine have their strengths as well as weaknesses and I adopt a balanced approach to manage any form of discomfort, ill health or disease with myself and my family.  For early signs of illness, if noticed at the right time, a natural cure is my first line of defence. But natural cures also require strict discipline, control, and the devotion of time.  Very often I transition quickly into using homeopathy, but we also use allopathy as required. I have also always been quite passionate about studies. As a child I aspired to be a scientist and went on to complete Masters in Quantum Field theory and Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. But before completing my PhD, I took a break from mainstream physics to do an MBA which catapulted me into the corporate world.  I am now coming out of that world having decided to expand my knowledge base again, and after carefully considering my interests, pursuing homeopathy was an instant decision, a full circle back to basics. I am now looking forward to completing a formal education in the subject to be able to carry forward this system of medicine in my family and help expand the reach of its benefits to others in need. Aside from my passion to study I also believe that in times to come, this system will acquire increasing relevance and popularity as an alternate system of medicine. Its fundamental theory of ‘Similia similibus curentur’ and its’ action to stimulate the body’s self-regulatory mechanisms is more readily understood and accepted by many today than ever before.  The credit goes as much to new researchers on the body-mind connection as to the speedy systems of communication that helps disseminate this information fast and wide amongst an eager audience. To summarize I firmly believe that Homeopathy is on a fast track to becoming a more important system of medicine and I would be delighted to be part of this journey.
