IBS, Homeopathy, and the Totality of Symptoms
June 27, 2007
In this show, Dr. Nancy Gahles and Dr. Marien Markell use multiple case studies of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diverticulitis, and Crohn’s Disease to illustrate exactly how emotional and psychological issues can present themselves as physical symptoms and how they must be
addressed as definitively as the disease’s acute symptoms.
Dr. Gahles explains this cornerstone concept of homeopathy as “your issues are in your tissues.” This unique approach to disease is how homeopathy differs from conventional medicine. While conventional medicine traditionally treats the symptoms of a presenting disease, homeopathy treats the
entire person–including even seemingly unrelated symptoms. Even individual personality traits can be clues for a homeopath’s diagnosis and coinciding remedy. The most important homeopathic principal is to take the patient’s totality of symptoms into account when searching for a cure.
