We know, auto-immune diseases are those where body's immune system identifies a particular organ /portion of the body as its own enemy and attacks the organ/portion with all its might. Modern Medicine says such diseases are incurable.
However, in homeopathy, we do not categorise these diseases as such. Since Homepathic Medicine considers each chronic systemic disease as a Constitutional Dyscrasia of the System of the patient, we always strive to detect what is it that changes the Immune System of the person. Accordingly, the first thing that catches my attention after going through the past, present and family history of the patients, is, in almost all of such cases there are repeated incidences of suppression in the system of the victim. One most common incidence is suppression of skin disease. One may think it to be an arbitrary one; but in every such case, after application of the homeopathic medicine, according to Totality, the suppressed disease is seen to reappear in the person of the patient with consequent relief of the auto-immune disease-symptoms.
After careful follow-up of each case, so that patients themselves do not cause further suppression and the appropriate medicine is applied in time, the disease are seen to be on the path of cure. The first positive thing that patients feel during treatment of so called Auto-immune disease is that they feel relieved of the internal pressure of unwellness and increase in exertion of strength in their mental and physical sphere, though the physical unwanted symtoms are still poking them from time to time.
However, during the tenure of treatment, the patients are to follow healthy life styles, viz., avoid all sorts of addictions as far as possible, timely intake of breakfast, lunch, dinner, take PE for at least 20 mins., drink water at least 1.5-2 L. a day, take 6-7 hrs. of sound sleep, take permissible veggies & fruits regularly etc. etc.
