In this book an attempt has been made to throw light on the undoubted utility of homeopathy in emergency cases. It is an undeniable fact that in homeopathy any remedy may be indicated in an emergency and no group of remedies can be classified as emergency remedies. Work presents summary of some of the important remedies frequently used in emergencies.
It is an unfortunate thing that we do not have good Writers at the present day in India where homoeopathy can look for a better future considering the number of homoeopathic practitioners coupled with the recognition granted by the Government to this system and the attitude of the present Government—their swadesi-mindedness. (Thanks to the ignorance of our leaders who think and talk in public that homoeopathy is an indigenous system of medicine and not ‘English’ or ‘foreign’).
Another sad state of affairs is that we do not have even a single decent homoeopathic book publisher with the result there is no encouragement, even if a good author there be.
It is true that no more is to be written on homoeopathy because “Hahnemann’s teaching has never been improved upon.,,’
But unless we have a good press as an ally it is not possible to keep the train on the track. This is one of the main reasons for the fall of homoeopathy in U.S.A. where once upon a time there were 56 purely homoeopathic hospitals with 35 to 1400 beds each.
In this book nothing new is claimed to have been invented or re-discovered but an attempt is made to throw light on the undoubted utility of homoeopathie remedies in emergency cases.
It is hoped this work will help the doubting minds to know the sphere of action of some of the important remedies as life-saving device at the death-bed.
It is an undeniable fact that in homoeopathy any remedy may be indicated in an emergency and no group of remedies can be classified as emergency remedies.
What this work presents is only a summary of some of the important remedies frequently used in etnergencies.
For example, how many doctors know the use of Laurocerasus in convulsions of infants when the child places its bands on the chest.
Helleborus for the coma that sets in the afternoon at 2-30 p.m. Carbo-veg is not the corpse reviver but Hydrocyanic Acid, Crotalus Horridus, Laurocerasus. etc. are the life-saving remedies at the last hour.
This is not a complete work and the author is well aware that the practitioner will get cases were he may find the need for remedies’ not included in this book. It is only a sort of introduction to the use of homoeophatic remedies in emergencies, arising mainly from traumatic causes.
As far as special repertories are concerned Yingling’s Manual and Minton’s Uterine Therapeutics are the only two besides Samuel Lilienthal’s Homoeopathic Therapeutics.
A comprehensive repertory for general emergency similar to the one compiled by Yingling for the accoucheur is under preparation and will take some time to come out. It is hoped the present attempt will be a step towards that work.
