Salute to a System of Healing
As a trustee of Sarabhai Homoeopathic Foundation it is with a sense of pride and immense satisfaction that the 3rd edition of this book has been presented.
The author of this treatise always cherished a hope that Homoeopathy would one day rank as a system of total health care, which would be universally accepted for it's utilisation. In his lifetime he strived hard to work towards that dream.
In this age of instant gratification and the ever present desire for immediate relief, several aspects related to health have taken a turn for the worst in terms of inviting chronic diseases. These diseases have sprung up in successive generations as a kind of a wicked gift from heaven, in return for our follies of suppressing apparently innocuous ailments, in our impatient search for "fix it now!" Homoeopathy does not believe in this approach.
It has been an arduous but greatly rewarding 18 years of practice in this system of medicine. To pen in a few lines on something which is so near and dear to my very existence is an unsurmountable task. Instead of making that effort a different approach has been embarked upon.
As a mark of respect to my father's memory who is also the author of this book, I have carried out a small exercise. A series of photographs which have been treated at the Sarabhai Homoeo Clinic over the last few years have been presented here, without discussing the details and modalities of treatment. The pictures do the talking!
