Diabetes Mellitus

Homeopathic tratment of Diabetes Mellitus by RAJ KUMAR MUKHERJEE

Our intention here is to show the value of Homoeopathy in the treatment of Diabetes Mellitus, treatment which is often complex and difficult. This question requires external elucidation as regard therapeutic from he point of view of pathogenesis.

Really speaking we do not now treat diabetes as well as in the Official as well as in Homoeopathic medicine, as it was treated Official as well as in Homoeopathic medicine, as it was treated thirty years ago. Even today we are not in opposition to give a definite answer to the question. The discovery of Insulin led Homoeopathy to analyse that substance not only in gross doses like the Officials but also in attenuated or infinitesimal doses.

The homoeopathic doctors of I’ Hospital Saint-Jacques employed since long time and in the same idea the pancreatic extract or Pancreating in the Ist decimal or centesimal. It is good to recall this fact here.

Among the classical Homoeopathic remedies some that are used very rarely, such as Chimaphilla, Rhus Aromatica of the vegetable kingdom; Lactic Acid and Picric Acid from the mineral kingdom, requires to be mentioned at the top as we have done.

Finally, a group of remedies called biological, it has seemed to un necessary to indicate the valuable new arms of Homoeopathy such as Glycerin, Insulin, Phlorodzine, Adrenalin and blood and urine isopathy, which are being used in the treatment of diabetes.

The question is therefore at the same time interesting, complex, and difficult to precise. Let us try to attack the problem. We will divide the remedies of diabetes into six groups.
