 DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICE OF MEDICINE


 

About the Department

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.
