MIND AND THE BODY WHICH MAKES THE MAN :
All sorts of bodily diseases are produced by half-used minds. ~George Bernard Shaw
An Individual consists of MIND + BODY. Both are related and cannot be considered as 2 separate entities. The changes in the body reflect the mind and vice versa. Thus suffering from physical ailments does not mean ignoring the mind. There could be a hidden cause of some mental suffering suppressed unknown or ignored. Thus probing into the history it could be clear that the restless mind has expressed itself in a physical suffering. Thus just mere disappearance of symptoms of what we see by eyes is not termed cure. Even the WHO has defined health as “ Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” That’s why, when in Homoeopathy we treat a sick individual we consider the whole individual ( MIND + BODY ) not just his sickness.
Mind is nothing but a combination of WILL +EMOTION +INTELLECT which we call Temperament. This Temperament varies from individual to individual which is seen as behavior pattern of an individual. Body is the variation in the physical constitution like obese, thin, tall, short, round face, lean face etc. Thus every individual is different from the other, even twins differ. This individualization is applied in Homoeopathy to select a remedy and treat a sick individual …..the end result being- PERMANENT CURE not just suppression or temporary relief from the complaint.
