Questions of diagnostics and classifications of illnesses occupy a major place in medicine, determines its form and character. For example, the modern scientific technical medicine allocates illnesses to morphological symptoms, aetiological factors or on a degree of functional decompensation. This approach has its positive moments, but if also has the limitation at the same time. The classification of illnesses takes into account that general, which is characteristic for a pathology of the certain bodies or concrete aetiology, but if does not take into account that general, which always is present at various pathologies of the same individual.
Diagnostics in homoeopathy and traditional medicine systems carries syndromological character. Syndromological diagnosis in these systems is not limited to separate bodies or systems, it includes the whole organism of the man, takes into account the constitutional type, mentality, individual symptoms both basic disease and accompanying, transferred and as diseases showing in family anamnesis.
Homöopathie in Tbilissi:
Klinik „Familienheiler“ macht mit „Familienmedizin“ Erfolge
Der Gründer der Homöopathie, Samuel Hahnemann, hatte Anhänger auch in Russland und in der Ukraine. Diese alternative Medizin entwickelte sich dort weiter bis zur Gründung der Sowjetunion. Die Sowjetmacht verbot jegliche alternative medizinische Tätigkeit. Anfang der 90er Jahre begann ein neues Interesse für Homöopathie in der damaligen Sowjetunion. In Moskau und Kiew gab es bereits einige homöopathische Zentren, deren Ärzte mit Kollegen aus dem Ausland zusammen arbeiteten. Aus Russland und der Ukraine gelangte dieses Wissen auch nach Georgien.
Heute wird Homöopathie in einigen Arztpraxen in Tbilissi erfolgreich eingesetzt. Die ”Kaukasische Post” sprach mit dem Gründer und Leiter einer der meistbesuchten homöopathischen Kliniken in Tbilissi ”Familienheiler”, Herrn Tornike Alaschwili. Er ist ordentliches Mitglied der Akademie für ökologische Wissenschaften und Mitglied der internationalen homöopathischen Liga.
K.P.: Wie kam es, dass Sie zur Homöopathie gekommen sind?
T. A.: Während meines Medizinstudiums an der Universität interessierte ich mich besonders für Pharmakologie und Immunologie. Ich suchte nach Mitteln zur Steuerung der Immunität, insbesondere bei onkologischen Erkrankungen (Onko-Immunologie). Aber trotz der Zusammenarbeit mit dem Institut für Physiologie und zahlreichen Experimenten konnten wir das erwünschte Resultat nicht erzielen. Wir waren eingeschränkt bei den Arzneimitteln, und auch unter bekannten Präparaten konnten wir nichts Nützliches finden. Mir wurde klar, dass die Pharmakologie nichts für die Immunität leisten kann. Dies war ein Grund, weswegen ich mich für Volksmedizin interessierte. Ich erlernte chinesische Medizin, Akupunktur, Irisdiagnostik. 1990 wurde ich Leiter der Abteilung für Phytotherapie im republikanischen Krankenhaus in Tbilissi. Gleichzeitig interessierte ich mich für Homöopathie. 1990 gab es die ersten Qualifikationskurse für Homöopathie, die Ärzte aus Deutschland und aus der Sowjetunion gemeinsam veranstalteten. Die damalige Leitung des republikanischen Krankenhauses finanzierte mir die Teilnahme an diesem Kurs. Nach dem Kurs sammelte ich alle nur möglichen Informationen und auch Literatur zur Homöopathie. Wir beschlossen, den Direktor des Homöopathie-Instituts, Herrn Prof. Dr. Benisch aus Deutschland, nach Tbilissi einzuladen. 1990 begannen die ersten kostenfreien Ausbildungskurse für Homöopathie. Bei seinem ersten Besuch gab er ein 8-tägiges Seminar für uns, dann kamen auch seine Kollegen und Schüler und organisierten Seminare für uns und andere Interessenten. 2006-2009 organisierten wir schließlich einen 3-jährigen Kurs für Homöopathie, den holländische Homöopathen leiteten.
Georgia – Gold Cut of Eurasia
President of Georgian Traditional Medicine League and Homeopathy
Since the ancient times famous thinker and travellers unanimously supported a particular location of the Caucasus and namely Georgia in geographical, cultural and geo-political space of the world. Since the earth was divided up into continents, Georgia has been defined as either Asian or European country or it has been divided in the middle. Our aim is to bring to light the Caucasus-Georgia, as a distinguished cultural and geographic phenomenon, that on the basis of the proportions of ‘Gold Cut’ is located at the crossroads of Eurasia.
Intelligent human eye can distinguish things and living creatures by their color and shape. This or that shape that is formed on the basis of ‘Gold Cut’ and the replacement of symmetry attracts the attention by its harmony and beauty.
‘Gold Cut’ – the proportion of universe harmony is in general a formula of common principles of the development and arrangement of nature. It has been known to mankind since the ancient times. A great scientist Pythagoras found the conceptions of ‘Gold Cut’ in the thoughts and deeds of ancient Egyptians and Babylonians. Euclid used it while dealing with geometry. ‘Gold Cut’ is obviously noticeable in immortal sculptures of Phidias. A great Greek philosopher Plato suggested that the Universe is arranged according to the proportions the ratio of noticeable to ethic principles.
Georgian Tradicional Medicine
Spherical, whole model of the chemical
periodical table of the elements
Chemical elements of periodical system subsists like tables. They often have quadrangle shapes. But there are alternative shapes too. For example: spiral shape etc. Some people tried too make three spatial shapes. Dr. Tornike Alashvili in 2002 year made spherical Periodical Tabel. Mainly in this system is that hybrogen is not include none of the groups and is the central element. For eight principal group, ten subgroup and fourteen lantanoid-aktanoids. It has as metal also a non-metal properties, because one electron has is atom and one needs to store electron capsule.
Founder of Homeopathy
Samuel Hahnemann was a German physician who earned his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1779. At the time of his graduation, Scientific advances were beginning to be seen in the fields of chemistry, physics, physiology and anatomy. The clinical practice of medicine, however, was rife with superstition and lack of scientific rigor. The treatments of the day, such as purgatives, bleeding, blistering plasters, herbal preparations and emetics lacked a rational basis and were more harmful than effective. Hahnemann recognized this and wrote critically of current practices in several papers on topics such as Arsenic poisoning, hygiene, dietetics and psychiatric treatment.
While translating William Cullen's A treatise of the materia medica into German, Hahnemann was struck by a passage that deal with cinchona bark, which was used to treat malaria. Cullen described its mechanism of action as a function of its stomach-strengthening properties. Hahnemann did not accept this explanation and took "four good drams of Peruvian bark, twice a day for several days" to attempt to characterize the action of the quinine-containing bark. Hahnemann reported that he began to develop symptoms identical to those of malaria. He concluded from this experience that effective drugs must produce symptoms in healthy people that are similar to the diseases they will be expected to treat. Today this principal is known as the "Law of Similars" and is the basis for the use of the term homeopathy ("similar suffering").
Hahnemann and colleagues began to test various substances to determine the types of symptoms they produced. These results suggested to Hahnemann what the drugs would be useful to treat. Hahnemann reasoned that doses of these substances that produced overt symptoms would be inappropriate for treatment of diseases with the same symptoms. Thus he advocated reduction of the dose to infinitesimal levels by multiple serial dilutions of ten or hundred fold . Soluble compounds or liquids were diluted in
In the 16th century the pioneer of chemical medicine Paracelsus declared that small doses of “what makes a man ill also cures him", anticipating homeopathy, but it was Hahnemann who gave it a name and laid out its principles in the late 18th century.
At that time, mainstream medicine employed such measures as bloodletting and purging, used laxatives and enemas, and administered complex mixtures, such as Venice treacle, which was made from 64 substances including opium, myrrh, and viper's flesh. Such measures often worsened symptoms and sometimes proved fatal.
Hahnemann rejected such methods as irrational and inadvisable.
Instead, he favored the use of single drugs at lower doses and promoted an immaterial, vitalistic view of how living organisms function, believing that diseases have spiritual, as well as physical causes.
(At the time, vitalism was part of mainstream science. In the 20th century, however, medicine discarded vitalism, with the development of microbiology, the germ theory of disease, and advances in chemistry.)
Hahnemann also advocated various lifestyle improvements to his patients, including exercise, diet, and cleanliness.
Hahnemann conceived of homeopathy while translating a medical treatise by Scottish physician and chemist William Cullen into German.
Homeopathy is a form of natural medicine that treats the individual as a whole being and with the help is highly diluted medicine, usually in the form of tablets can reverse the effects of chronic and acute health complaints.
