Journey of disease to ease: from knowing yourself to loving yourself
Coming to homoeopathy was not by choice for me. In fact, I was the one who was not interested in medicine. My mother’s dream was to see her daughters as doctors. Till the time I joined homoeopathic medical college like rest of the others, I was clueless about this science. I had made up my mind to just get the degree and then shift over, but in my first year of college I heard the case stories of our teachers and how they helped people transform their lives. That was when I was very motivated. I still remember attending a medical conference and then finding my passion in both treating and teaching homoeopathy.
Being a holistic practitioner from the very beginning of my career and treating a lot of people, the patients would always ask what is it that is making me so sick, doctor why do you think I have so many problems!
So, it’s very simple to attribute it to the lifestyles or family history or some bacteria or virus; mostly that’s what we learn in our medical schools, but somewhere deep in my heart I was looking for more answers to this problem especially the rise in feminine hormonal disorders. We meet every other girl who is struggling from PCOS, thyroid disorders, infertility, fibroid but what could be the cause of it?
Homoeopathy is a holistic mode of treatment that originated in Germany by a German Allopathic Doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann -According to Homoeopathy IT’S NOT AN ORGAN THAT IS SICK BUT IT’S A PERSON THAT IS SICK .
So, in many of my cases what I could see there was a pattern in their illness and their thought process. Certain conflicts give rise to a group of diseases in this epidemic of various hormonal issues. Besides our lifestyle or family history, an important part is the stress we are living with, the conflict of the masculine and feminine energy within us, the grief and the hurt that is untold and not healed is causing the illness.
No doubt our environmental factors, the food we eat, the genetics, our lifestyles play a vital role but also our emotions and experiences are the major factors that cause a disease. Let me share a case. This female had a lot of skin issues and hormonal imbalances and when she came to me she had a lot of menstrual irregularities and sometimes scanty, sometimes increased flow. When I studied her case in details, I concurred that she was lacking her own identity and choices. The people in her life on whom she was dependent for love, care and affection were letting her down and when we understood this essence of her life and prescribed a medicine; she got better. There are many such examples.
Hence, on 24th March I have taken my first step in the field of entrepreneurship and a journey where I aim to transform life of people, not just their diseases, also their quality of life. I am eager to motivate people and see their life change.
With the aim of facilitating the journey from Disease to Ease, From Knowing oneself to Loving oneself I have started Homoeopathic Pearls To Cure at Andheri (east) Sakinaka.
My family has always been supportive. I still remember when I was working for AYUSH program homoeopathy for mother and child care, I would be home by 1 AM or even late but my parents never questioned me. Even now when I took this risk of leaving my well-paying job my family didn’t question my decision. My family and friends have always supported me.
My journey has always been with its own ups and downs with my own good and bad days, the days when your patient is cured is a day not less than a Eid Day and the day some of them not responding well is a challenging day where you know you need to help a person out of the situation. The biggest challenge while practicing homoeopathy is when people have their own myths and fancies about the science some. They expect miracle in a day. Some come in for treatment with no faith in you at all, but the only key to facing these challenging is my belief and passion in the science.
Every patient that walks in my clinic teaches me something new. Every time I feel that what I did in previous case may not be true for this case. I never forget that every person that comes in to my clinic has walked in to teach me something new and bring meaning to my life. Whenever I deal with a patient, I am reminded by what one of my guru says; when you examine a patient remember he is a person sent to you by Almighty and you need to be gentle, loving and caring. Your unconditional love to your patient will heal them because the world doesn’t need medicine as much they need love.
