system has its own limitations. So is homoeopathy.
The problems are bound to be, as no system is
complete in itself. Dr. Sehgal, staunch follower
of Dr. J. T. Kent, came across some problems of
very obstinate nature. Some of his fever cases did
not yield to any treatment. He tried all the
possible ways of prescribing, but there was no
result. This failure did not discourage him, on
the contrary made him more inquisitive and more
zealous so as to investigate the things more
deeply, as if something new was inviting him to
explore it. It was unconvincing to him that how it
is possible that the law of similar has got
limited application. He used to follow Dr. J. T.
Kent meticulously and try to find some mental
symptoms and add some physical symptoms to it and
repertorise it to find the remedy. But in some
cases where he was stuck up, there was no clue to
reach to the remedy. He used to become restless,
"Why homoeopathy fails?" He happened to
read Dr. J .T. Kent that, to become a good
homoeopath you should learn from the bedside of
the patient. One of his close relative's son was
having high fever and diagnosed to have malaria.
When asked, how are you? He used to reply, "I
am fine" even during very high fever. When
asked, "What do you want to do?" He
told, "I just want to lie down on bed."
And on his own never complained of any problem.
Repeatedly these statements came. No doubt, these
statements seem to be most ordinary and common
ones but carries a lot of meaning which Dr. Sehgal
converted into the following rubrics.
- says he is well - sick; when very
- remain in bed; desires to
apathy - complain; does not
combing these rubrics he reached to the remedy
Hyoscyamus. There was no indication of Hyoscyamus
in malaria fever during those days in any
homoeopathic literature. But he thought of trying
this remedy. This remedy gave amazing result.
gave him immense boost to understand the great
secret that if followed, the mental signals of the
ailing individual keenly, let it be his common and
ordinary one, it can lead to similimum to cure. He
didn't looked back then onwards. He treated
numerous patients with his new understood method.
he then discussed this new method among fellow
homoeopathic physicians who also tried in similar
manner to get astounding results in their clinics.
This led to the rediscovery of prescribing on
ordinary and common symptom of the mind which was
given a name as Revolutionized Homoeopathy.

prescribe according to the present mental state of
the patient, which is also persisting and
predominating in your patient during sickness.

was no change in the basic principles but the only
change was, considering the present state of mind
of the patient by understanding the common
versions of the patient. According to RH
prescribing, the revolution was brought in the
field of results. It was not against anybody or
any school of thought but only against the
diseases or the suffering humanity. The wide gap
of misunderstanding was filled up between the
theory and the practicability that is only the
mental state is taken into consideration where as
the physical symptoms are ignored.
the medical history, it was Dr. Hahnemann who
first gave the rational explanation to the life.
Dr. Hahnemann explained the life from the
spiritual point of view. Dr. hahnemann explained
that there are three components of a life that is
spiritual, mental and physical. These three
components are interdependent and they always
interact with each other, which means wherever
there is life, these three will be three and vice
layer + Mental layer + Physical Layer = Life
there is any reaction at any level the whole
economy is behind that, it is never a local
phenomenon Dr. Sehgal explained the life in the
following way. Life always pre existed in two
extremes that are in sperm and ovum, like negative
and positive. When these two comes together
mysterious changes take place which initiates a
process of cell division so as to form the whole
or an individual. For example, when a negative
charge meet the positive charge only then a circle
is completed other wise they remain restless.
Their union is must, life always starts as union,
perhaps this is nature's law.

recognize life in three parts, the Body, the Mind
and the Spirit. This is a trinity and this trinity
is always present in all life and in some form in
every part of our organism. These forces react in
symmetry and are interdependent - Robert)
of life, no doubt that all the three layers are
important, every one is must, even then every
layer has got its own importance. Spiritual layer
is most significant, next comes the mental, least
is the physical one. Agreed, spiritual layer needs
the physical so as to express itself, but
nevertheless mental layer is topmost in
significance because it is this layer which gives
meaning to the material and thus make it capable
of sensation and function. For example take a life
wire of electricity, as long as current is passing
through, it is live if the current is switched
off, it is merely a piece of dead wire. Similarly
it is the dynamic layer which pervades the
material body and thus makes it meaningful. So it
is the centre of the life as called by Dr.

special organs are developed and their functions
maintained by the expressions of vital energy as
the life giving principle. All expressions of the
mind are such manifestation - Robert)
of mind is in the closer proximity, the dynamic
layer expresses itself through mind, so the direct
route to reach through mind, so the direct route
to reach the center is via mind. When we prescribe
on the basis of mental state, directly we are
going to give the stimulation to center. So it is

choice or decision or of controlling one's own
power of choice and deliberate actions or the
intentions resulting from the exercise of this
WILL plays a significant role to know about the
patient. If we take the case or investigate the
patient according to the laws of RH all the way
straight, we are able to bring out the WILL of the
patient. Thus a very judicious prescription is

the above discussion, it is very much clear that
how important the mind is. Suppose, any department
of the mind is abnormal or suppressed it can lead
to any disastrous consequence. At the same time if
some physical part is sacrificed for some better
thing no difference to lead a normal life is felt.
For example, there are number of instance persons
seen roaming about in the streets. They do not
show any concern about their physique, many of
them look very strong, the external influences
hardly makes any difference, e.g., many do not
even wear clothes, they are unconscious about
their security and safety. There is no meaning of
such a life, mental faculty is gone means no life
or in other words there is no meaning of that type
there are persons who don't have some particular
limbs but their mental faculty is working fine.
They pull on their life even married life
understanding the need of the family as well.
example, Stephen Hawking, the physicist who's
fully paralyzed, can not even move a step, utter a
word, being well at mental level, he is the future
of the world. So the mind is very significant so
as to establish the individuality and thus to make
a proper prescription.
mind plays an important role in life. In
Homoeopathy also every stalwarts of Homoeopathy
gave highest gradation to mind.
Sehgal practically showed why the stalwarts
depended on mind symptoms so much by implementing
this RH in all his cases.
to Dr. Sehgal basically two processes that is
processes of assimilation and elimination are very
important. They play a very significant role in
the state of health and disease and cure.
For an individual to work, fight against diseases
and to maintain the life it is utmost necessary to
be supplied with energy which is provided from out
side in the form of food and drinks. After the
process of digestion the useful part is taken up
for the maintenance of the life and to meet the
energy requirements for the various processes.
During the process of digestion and metabolism
some waste products are left over which are
removed from the body at certain interval in
various forms, for example stool, urine, sweat
two processes are very important. As long as these
two processes are working efficiently the
individual is in the state of health. Every
individual has his own standard of assimilation
and elimination. For example, a person may be in
the state of health with a certain quantity of
intake of food where as the other may be requiring
more or less than him, so as to sustain the normal
life. Some way evacuation of the stool once in
twenty four hours may be satisfactory for one
where as the other person may like to evacuate
twice or thrice. What I mean to say is every
person has his own standard of assimilation and
elimination where he feels normal or in the state
of health or in NATURAL ORDER as called by Dr.
Sehgal. At this state these two processes obeys a
discipline which is unique to the individual.
During the state of health this discipline is must
which is natural to the individual.
change in the discipline of assimilation and
elimination makes natural order is disturbed.
These two processes go out of order, does not obey
the natural order which is unique to the
individual. The intake of food may decrease or
increase and there are perverted desires and
aversions. The energy level starts falling down
and the person becomes inefficient. The process of
elimination is also perturbed, the waste is not
thrown out as it should be. So it starts
accumulating in the body. After a certain period
this accumulation of waste turns into toxins and
thus sets in the process of DEGENERATION. In this
state, the processes of assimilation and
elimination no more obey the discipline. This is
called the diseased state.
toxins which are lying in the body has certain
reflection on the mind which are reflected in the
form of speech and gestures.
the medicine is selected according to the mental
state, the first change it is likely to produce is
on the control over the degenerated process, by
stimulating the center and restoring the normal
energy level and thus producing the eliminations
through the natural orifices and restoring the
process of assimilation as well.
elimination set in by the remedy so chosen does
obey certain discipline ensured by the feeling of
general well being. Ultimately both the processes
starts obeying the discipline which is unique to
the individual and thus it is the sign of health.
these process of assimilation and elimination are
altered the toxins are giving reflection on the
mind in the form of speech and gestures. These
signals emitted by the patient are collected and
out of which the most stressed by the patient,
time and again are taken into consideration for
the selection of simillibus. In other words, we
can say the present which is persisting and
predominating is taken in to account so as to
select the homoeopathic remedy. These versions of
the patient may seem the common one, never the
less they are pregnant with meaning.
PART OF RH:
TAKING: This is the first encounter with the
patient we are going to have during the process of
case taking. It is a very important step as far as
the future of the patient and the doctor is
concerned. Because well taken case is half solved.
As case taking is not an easy job, it needs a lot
of skills and temperament on the part of the
physician. Every case is a different case, you may
have to adopt different strategies. It is utmost
necessary to bring out the real information from
the patient and to understand it in the contest of
patient himself. Every person is not easy to
handle, very often one has to palpate some
sensitive issues of the patient in question of the
moment. But in RH the aim and technique is very
vividly clear. The master that is Dr. M.L. Sehgal
always made the things very easy, also the case
taking. Master said, "When a patient come to
us he come to give us the information regarding
his sickness which is reflected in speech and
gestures, our sole aim is to collect the present
which conforms to persistence and predominance.
The only thing the physician needs is the correct
observation and then to reach at a scientific
conclusion to spot the reliable information and
exact information so as to prescribe. To do so it
is necessary to proceed into the case on the lines
as told by the masters that is WHAT the patient
says while reporting and HOW he says, WHAT he does
and HOW he does? So when the proceedings are
according to the lines as told by the masters one
reaches at the desired information that is the
present, persistent and predominant state of mind
which is very scientific and reliable information
so as to spot the right remedy.
information which we are going to collect during
the processes of case taking should be taken as it
is. The information which comes spontaneously is
most important and that should not be tampered by
the judgements or coloured by the physicians. Then
after taking all the information by the patient it
should be analyses and evaluated, giving each and
every expression its own value neither under
rating nor over rating any information. Generally
it is seen that patient gives very important
information at the beginning of the case taking or
at the end.
similibus then chosen starts giving the effect
with no time and it stimulate the center and then
sets the process of assimilation and elimination
right and brings the cure ultimately.
OF ACCURACY OF SIMILIMUM
after administration of similimum there comes
the feeling of general well being and the
natural order of the patient is restored and
repulsion should take place. The recovery must
start from within outwards, from center to
periphery that is from mind to physicals.
mental state which form the basis of
prescription must return to normal that is
excesses, the exaggerations must depart with
corresponding relief in the physical problems.
