Following questions to Dr. Srinivasan
What kind of relevance has the dose rate, means the quantum of the globules, from your experience?
By the use of Centesimal- or Q-Potencies, I use only one globule, solved in Water in liquid form of Q. Therefrom, he takes once a day five drops, after he shakes the bottle five times. In cases of serious troubles, he can use it in the same way twice a day. In India we have problems with availability industrial manufactured Q-Potencies, because they have other filling capacities than of amber coloured bottles of capacities recommended by Hahnemann, or the bottles are made from plastic. There are no producers with constantly high level quality. The follow-up of patients occurs 10 days or more after taking the remedy. From my experience, Q-Potencies will work more rapidly than others in chronic diseases.
How and through whom came Homeopathy to India, and how established?
The history says that Homeopathy came to India in the year 1836-37 with Johann Martin Honigberger who came to the court of Maharaja RANJIT SINGH of Punjab. Honigberger came from Romania and learned homeopathy from Hahnemann. He was personal physician to the Maharaja. His success in the treatment of different diseases of the Maharaja induced the propagation of Homeopathy. In the 1860s an important factor for dissemination of Homeopathy was the conversion of Dr. Mahendra Lal Sircar, M.D. one of the most respectable physicians in India, to Homeopathy. In the following year the first homeopathic college in Calcutta was founded and students from H. C. Allen came there for teaching. Till the independence of India, Bengal was centre of Homeopathy. In South India, it was a pupil of Kent, (Dr. GURU RAJU) who founded a College in Andhra Pradesh.
If you treat 50-60 patients a day, how does it work?
I have a colleague and two students of Homeopathy in my Practice. The first consultation takes minimum one hour, where we split the patients under us. In the morning we treat from 8.00 a.m till 10.30 p.m some 30 patients and 20-25 patients in the evening between 5.00 p.m till 8.00 p.m.or more. In the evening we only have follow-ups and in the morning we do the first-consultations. In our prescriptions key-note symptoms help us to find out the right remedy more rapidly in the Materia Medica. If it isn’t successful we look at the related remedies, if we can find here the right one. If we work through symptom by symptom, write down every compatible remedy and analyse them, we could only treat a few patients a day. So we adapt as required. Therefore we pick up two or three important symptoms and look what remedies will conform in the best way, and which of them could at best follow. This we choose after studying the Materia Medica. With the classic method of repertorisation we could treat at most 10 patients a day. Of course there are cases where we have to work out laboriously. “It is all part of a day’s work.”
