In the healthy condition of a person, the vital force, the dynamis that animates the material body (organism), rules with unbounded sway, and retains all the parts of the organism in admirable harmonious, vital operation, as regards both sensations and functions, so that our indwelling, mind can freely employ this living healthy instrument for the higher purpose( Organon Aphorism 9)
Spirit is unique to each individual. Our “spirit” usually refers to the deepest part of us, the part that lets us make meaning of our world. Our spirit provide us with the revealing sense of who we are, why we are here and what our purpose for living is. It is that innermost part of us that allow us to gain strength and hope.
Spiritual wellness may not be something that we think much of, yet its impact on our life is unavoidable. The basis of spirituality is discovering a sense of meaningfulness in our life and coming to know that we have a purpose to fulfill.
For some, spirituality may be equated with traditional religions such as Christianity, Hinduism, Islam or Buddhism. For others, it may mean growing in your personal relationships with others, or through being at peace with nature. Spirituality is the way you find meaning, hope, comfort and inner peace in your life. Many people find spirituality through religion. Some find it through music, art or a connection with nature. Others find it in their values and principles.
Body, Mind, Spirit
No one really knows for sure how spirituality is related to health. However, it seems that the body, mind and spirit are connected. The health of any one of these elements seems to affect the health of the others. In Homeopathy, we understand that:
“DISEASE IS NOTHING BUT A DYNAMIC DERANGEMENT OF THE SPIRITUAL, SELF ACTING (automatic) ALL PERVADING VITAL FORCE.”
If we focus on the fundamental peculiarities of homeopathy and its differences from conventional, allopathic medicine, then homeopathy differs in it's understanding as to the goal of treatment. Homeopathy does not address or seek to eliminate physical signs and symptoms but instead understands them to be expressions of the vital force.
In homeopathy we are not trying to manipulate physiology, change high fever to low, eliminate pain, swelling or redness. We are not even trying to eliminate anger, anxiety or sadness. Our ideal is "to restore health rapidly, gently, permanently." Therefore, to achieve complete health harmony, we don’t have any other alternative, except Homeopathy.
