Part 12- Homeopathic Treatment of Diabetes Mellitus

“Homoeopathy is not only a science of therapeutics, but also concerned with totality of symptoms or individuality. Regarding the cure of DM by homoeopathic medicine,

one needs the complete miasmatic and constitutional therapy in the very early stage. On the basis of the author of the book, patients that took miasmatic or constitutional remedies following classical homeopathy principles like single dose and single remedy, showed a much better result and improvement in mental, emotional and physical layers including fasting plasma or blood glucose and HGB A1c. The possibility of reversing diabetics’ conditions increases through Hahnemannian homeopathy  remedies comparing mixed therapy with more than one remedy.” According to Dr.Deepak Sharma at hpathy website.

Miasmatic Treatment:

Dr. Deepak Sharma continues: “If we are going through complete miasmatic study of the individual in early stages then we can easily find out about the disease for which an individual is prone to suffer. Then, we can apply the antimiasmatic therapy as a preventive measure which causes a decline in the tendency for the progression of the miasm.”

The author confirms his statement since he has experienced and observed this fact in his patients. How? The patients that received miasmatics and constitutional remedies as their first prescription showed a more rapid improvement in all layers; mental, emotional and physical. Even in one case a complete cure and reversing occurred. A man aged 61 is his first patient who has cured completely he is still under close observation and the last time he was visited he felt very well and he had a FBS of 116 from Jam Hospital laboratory In Tehran on Dec.10th 2012. According to the defenitions of diabetes mellitus FBS of less than 126 mg/dl is considered normal.
