I often come across these questions, “why a homoeopath asks so many questions?”.
One often wonders why do you ask, “ what do you love to eat?”, which climate can you tolerate better?”, “ when do you feel more hungry?”

One may find such questions irrelevant, sometimes annoying as well and may think homoeopath is asking random questions. However, these are essential for any homoeopathic doctor to prescribe the right medicine.

To understand it better, Let’s have some insight into the science of homoeopathy & individualism.
Plato, a man ahead of his times, stated nearly 2000 years ago, “The part can never be well unless the whole is well.”

In order to successfully treat a disease/group of symptoms, we need to look at many variables including lifestyle, diet, stress factors and the health status of various organs.
The universe and it’s contents are basically composed of Panchtattva or five basic elements comprising energy, air, fire, water & earth. These constitute a man too, as illustrated below :

Energy – Activity :
Dullness & lethargy or at the other end hyperactivity & restlessness, speak about an imbalance in the energy production in mitochondria of the cells. Energy production is a primary function of each and every cell of the body. Homoeopathic treatment aims at correcting the imbalance in energy.
Imbalance in energy gives signs and symptoms, which is named as disease.

Air – Mind :
It is essential to note natural traits of an individual like morals, intellect, will, extroverted or reserved, fears which are all expressions of his genes. His food cravings and aversions speak of imbalances of body, for instance, craving salt is a sign of adrenal fatigue, excess desire for soil could indicate iron deficiency

Fire – Thermal Axis :
A section of the brain (hypothalamus) controls thermoregulation. In addition, the basal metabolic rate ( BMR ) of a person will determine whether he feels too hot or too cold as compared to others.

Water – Thirst :
Water makes up around 80% body weight. Thirst is the physiological urge to drink water. An increase/decrease is a reflection of what is happening inside the body.

Earth – Physical Appearance :
Traits like height, build, texture of hair, nails are a reflection of our genes, for example coarse, thick hair indicates a positive personality.

So, in spite we all are made up of panchtattva, we all are very individual when it comes to our lifestyles, behaviour, diet, thinking etc.

Thus answers to these questions vary from individual to individual and help in selecting the appropriate homoeopathic medicine which is also known as homoeopathic constitutional medicine.
Thank you.
