Health is not just merely an absence of disease but a dynamic entity where a state of equilibrium keeps the constitution of an individual whole in harmony. A disease is dynamic disposition in harmony of constitution due to either non-maintenance of equilibrium or physio-chemical alteration of tissues. The Cure is “the rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way, based on easily comprehensible principles”. The goal of the medicine is to stimulate the body’s defence system to assist itself to encourage its natural healing process and clear itself of any expressions of imbalance. It was Samuel Hahnemann who in 1790 first tested the effect of drug (Cinchona) on healthy human being.

Adrenal glands are stress supervisors. They release anti-stress hormone Cortisol which suppresses the release of the body’s “feel good” hormone Serotonin, amplifying the anxiety and also augmenting depression, as well as Melatonin, the hormone related to sleep. Adrenal glands are responsible for the “fright, fight & flight” response of our bodies. It is these glands which feel the maximum punch of nervous tension. Adrenal fatigue is a collection of symptoms such as body ache, fatigue (not relieved by sleep), nervousness, sleeplessness and digestive problems. Nux vomica (homeopathic medicine) restores this miserably imbalanced state of affairs.

Plants and trees do get sick like we humans do. Take the help of Homeopathy to revive and energise them. Agrohomeopathy is a branch of homeopathy where homeopathic medicines including nosodes and auto-nosodes are used by farmers and gardeners on sick plants and trees and on the soil. It is an alternative to use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides in agriculture. The benefits of agrohomeopathy include improvement in soil quality, reduction in fossil fuels consumption and pollution, economic savings and preservation of natural ecology, thereby directly saving the environment. The environment goes green with homeopathy. The use of homeopathic remedies for plants was first mentioned and practised by Baron von Boenninghausen.

Professor Gottling said, “Chemistry has to thank Samuel Hahnemann for many important discoveries!”
