Intercurrent prescription...

 

Dear Readers,
       We hold different types of prescription according to the classification contributed by our founder Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. An acute prescription differs from a chronic prescription. Usually we take the case history, evaluate, and prescribe the drug on totality. Sometimes we seek for a repertorial totality.

         Some prescriptions are based on the pathological invasion, an organopathic remedy is prescribed. Of course key note prescriptions are very rare as mentioned in Aphorism No 152 and 153 which have a special focus to mental and physical level symptoms. Such symptom gives great key for opening and renders great result in many cases.

       Besides these we face lot of failures in treating a chronic condition and also its acute exacerbations. Hahnemann contributed the Theory of chronic miasms in 1828 after many years of practice. He contributes miasm to handle the cases successfully. Many physicians understood the truth and very successful after inspiring the truth.

       Miasmatic prescription is nothing but the constitutional prescription which based on the totality of symptoms including the miasmatic state that inherited or acquired. Similarly intercurrents mostly a polycrest or nosodes are often used in practice when a well indicated remedy becomes sluggish or fails to sustain itself. Acute and chronic intercurrents are being used successfully in our practice.

      Homoeopathic practice is an art which is individualistic in physician’s prescriptions. The net result is how we overcome and successfully treat a patient. Every cure has a basic study and physicians should come forward to contribute with evidence based documents
