DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICE OF MEDICINE
Though Practice of Medicine is based on
the modern medicine, Homoeopathy makes a deviation from that, It treats
the patient as a whole by assessing an individual’s genetic predisposition of
developing various diseases relying upon the psychosomatic approach thus aiming
at personalized medication. It therefore imperatively pre-supposes to know the
Man in both health and disease. Hence a study on applied Anatomy including
Developmental Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry along with their parameters
relating to various systems and special senses embracing Psychology and Ecology
to assess the state of health and diseases should be undertaken. By keeping
this in mind, every disease should be studied so as to understand it in
relation to aetiology and pathogenesis, considering both Internal (fundamental
cause i.e. Psora, Syphills, Sycosis) and External Causes (Exciting and
Maintaining), its Pathology, Clinical Features through Physical Examination and
Investigations, complications, Differential Diagnosis and its management
including Miasmatic Analysis and Homoeopathic Management , General Management.
