Homeopathy for today's world by Rajan Sankaran

today

 

This new method of homeopathic diagnosis--the Sensation Method--reveals that we are shaped by an inner “song,” analogous to either the animal, plant, or mineral kingdom, revealing itself as an underlying felt sensation and expressed through illness.

Discover the “inner song” that triggers your ailments and underlies your fundamental nature and response to stress

• Reveals the 7 levels of experience and how to apply them to reach the core experience behind our physical and mental symptoms

• Explains how to decode the ways we describe our pain and emotions to determine what animal, plant, or mineral is “singing” within

• Shows how awareness of the “inner song” can reduce its negative impact on our emotions, dreams, ambitions, careers, and relationships

The most important development in homeopathy since its discovery in the late 18th century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the Sensation Method of diagnosis developed by Dr. Rajan Sankaran explains that our experience and perceptions of life’s stresses are shaped by an inner pattern, or “song,” connected to one of the three kingdoms in nature--animal, plant, or mineral. Revealing itself as a constant underlying sensation felt in both the mind and the body and expressed through illness and chronic ailments, this inner song of reoccurring reactive patterns--be it that of a competitive lion, a sensitive daisy, or structured phosphorus--drives our emotions, dreams, ambitions, careers, and relationships and is the underlying factor behind why stress affects each of us so differently.

Explaining that there are 7 levels to our experiences, Dr. Sankaran provides techniques to decode the words and gestures we use to describe our pain, emotions, and health conditions, allowing us to probe deeper into our experiences of stress and illness to determine what animal, plant, or mineral is “singing” within us. Showing how this core identity can be used by homeopathic physicians to treat our problems at their source, he reveals how becoming aware of our inner song can reduce the intensity of its negative effects, leading to less stress, better health, and more harmony in our lives.

 

 

Sankaran's Plant sensation in pictures by Rajan Sankaran and Sandra Petri

Plant

 

 

 

 

It gives me great pleasure to write the foreword to this book. Initially when Sandra Petri approached me with her manuscript I felt that this would be a useful addition to the books on sensation since it gives a visual impression of the sensation of the various plant families. As they say ‘One picture is worth a thousand words’. I felt that Sandra Petri’s visual representations to be aligned to my experience of the families. I also liked the idea of the whole book being sort of informal or more at an artistic level rather than something very structured or formal. I believe this also is in the spirit of the plant kingdom. We therefore felt that it is best to preserve the originality of the work including the handwriting rather than use formal typesetting.
This book is offered to the students and practitioners of homoeopathy with the trust that it will further help in getting not only the words of each family but an actual live experience by a look at the illustrations. The best way of using the book would be to not only look at the pictures or the drawings but to put oneself in that position and observe one’s experience of it.

Just you see by Sunirmal Sarkar

Sarkar

 

 

Sunirmal Sarkar is one of the busiest practitioners in West Bengal. He was a professor of Materia Medica at The National Institute of Homoeopathy in Kolkata. He sees over 100 patients per day, with more than 50 cancer cases. In 30 years of clinical practice, Dr. Sarkar's tremendous success in pathological cases has compelled the rest of the homoeopathic world to witness what he is doing and how he is doing it.

Dr. Sarkar is a dedicated and voracious reader of the Materia Medica, Repertory, and Clinical Medicine. He is a master of Allen's Keynotes, Boericke's Materia Medica, Kent Repertory, and Pulford's Materia Medica. His affinity and desire for reading, depth of understanding, innovative thinking and extensive clinical practice, have created a unique approach, which is inclusive of his case-taking method, follow-ups, and potency selection.

Jusf You See is the favorite phrase of Dr. Sunirmal Sarkar while he is teaching his students. The unique style and approach he adopts in his cases and lectures is remarkable and is summarized by this very phrase.

Dr. Sarkar habitually gives examples of clinical situations, along with clinical symptoms of the patient. He then shows us where the peculiarity can be found, even in the black and white symptoms, and he reveals the hidden values in the pages of our Materia Medica and Repertory.

Jusf You See symbolizes a broadening of knowledge, which brings to light the countless amounts of symptoms and approaches that Dr. Sarkar uses in clinical practice. Aside from the traditional tools utilized in homoeopathic practice, such as the Materia Medica and Repertory, Dr. Sarkar uses several other interesting sources such as Indian Drugs, Potentized Allopathic Drugs, Sarcodes, and Organ Remedies to name a few.

For the first time, his ideas, approaches, and cases have been systematically recorded in an easy to follow style. This book is entirely based on homoeopathic clinical practice and is a must read for any homoeopathic practitioner.

 

 

Spectrum latest issue: Fascinating Fungi

Fungi

 

 

 

Fungi are overwhelmingly hidden – under the earth or inside other organisms. With their caps, tubes, and bulbs, they show us at the most their organs of reproduction. In homeopathy too, there are only a few visible representatives of this natural kingdom. Situated somewhere between plants and animals, the fungi are difficult to classify. Yet their effect on people is very interesting, whether as gut symbiont or agent of disease, as intoxicant or drug, as food or poison. This spectrum of action promises a wide range of homeopathic applications, which have so far been greatly underutilized. With new remedy provings, miasmatic connections and interesting case histories, our group of international authors will describe the magical kingdom of Agaricus, Bovista and Secale in homeopathic terms – from simple yeasts and lichen to the massive organisms of the higher fungi. The articles as a whole illustrate this complex natural kingdom. With this issue SPECTRUM presents a further, especially fascinating chapter of its modern, living materia medica.
