Constitutional and Clears – Misnomer and Deception
What is a constitutional medicine? When the so-called constitutional medicine doesn’t provide cure, why do homeopaths start looking for other medicines for clears?
These days, the medicines used for such clears could be:
1. A Single or Mixed, generally Low
It’s important to realize that Hahnemann never mentioned the word “Constitutional Medicine” in any of his works. In practice, when one medicine could cure most of the issues in some cases, that medicine started getting to be termed as Constitutional Medicine.
J T Kent using the word constitutional for the first time, for remedy pictures, was another reason behind it, from where the word actually came too. A misnomer thus in a way, with even added tweaked meanings attached to it, as gradually we started looking for just one constitutional medicine for all cases, with in general persons too expecting and demanding the same.
One medicine curing the cases, or one constitutional medicine certainly exists, but it’s not a rule, and there can even be more medicines at the constitutional level. The same applies to even the cases of autism, or be it any other tough issue, with certainly the percentage of cures with one medicine lesser for such cases. When an autism case is ‘fortunately’ having just one constitutional medicine, and even a ‘good’ homeopath finds that right one, the case gets cured. Though, when there are more medicines at the constitutional level, one generally doesn’t find the right needed cure. This one aspect is enough to ask ourselves some quite in-depth questions.
In tougher cases, when one medicine couldn’t cure, Hahnemann just said to follow one medicine with the other, but all to be administered as single medicines. These days, we however see mixed medicines used for clears, most of the times. A diversion in Hahnemann’s ways thus. Even if it’s single medicine, it’s actually being used for ‘clears’. Similarly, the other concepts see diversion in order to tackle various issues, supported by some or the other logic. Some follow one, some the other.
Cases lingering for years with any method, with a little or some improvement, are not close to getting cured. This rather simply means that the right medicines couldn’t be found, and/or in principle, are not administered in the right way. Thus, a deep analysis of all contemporary methods is surely required, more so by patients and parents themselves, to get to the right understanding. This will empower them to be aware of the finer points of homeopathy, and lead them towards cure.
The use of “clear” remedies in homeopathy by some homeopaths in the recent times, unfortunately falls in the same category, as clears via other methods, such as Chlorine Dioxide, Chelation, random supplementation and so on. These methods aim at “detoxing” the body. Thus, the same mindset is being applied in homeopathy, which is against the core principles of homeopathy to begin with.
Tweaking the use of homeopathic remedies in this manner means not getting to the root of the problem, and rather practising homeopathy at its outskirts.
Constitutional and clears, the safest way, as that’s what resonates the best with most of the parents and patients too in general, even if not in cure.
Not to forget the high intensity clears here, done in the name of vaccines, miasms, etc, which when done creates equally high intensity troubles too.
So, we should start understanding these inner nuances of homeopathy, to be guided rightly, as otherwise we too would be in their loop.
