Mind - Body Connection By: MAX VARMA

There is no line that can be drawn between the physical and the mental/emotional processes
They are inextricable linked and cannot be separated






Every emotion you feel has an effect on your body, every thought you have involves a neurological process, every physical change from the norm is accompanied by a corresponding mental/emotional state. Sometimes it will be obvious, sometimes subtle, (sometimes denied, but denial is an emotional state too). Yet the idea of treating the body and mind separately (allopathy) ignores this truth and so how can it be the in the best interests of the patient?

"The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul and, if the head and body are to be healthy, you must begin by curing the mind... for this is the great error of our day in the treatment of the human body, that physicians first separate the soul from the body" - Written by Plato in the fifth century BC, echoed by Hahnemann two centuries ago and just as true today as it ever was.

Every physical disharmony is accompanied by a change in the mental/emotional sphere and vica-versa. i.e. any mental/emotional state, especially if profound or of long duration is capable of causing physical ill health and any physical disease is bound to result in a change in the mental/emotional state, this is true in both acute and chronic illness. How then can any medical system that views them as separate and which treats them separately, be effective? This is why the basis of 'holistic' medicine is that these are not regarded as separate but simply aspects of the 'whole'.

Therefore homeopathy, a holistic system, always honours the body-mind connection, both in the casetaking and in the choice of remedy. Its remedies are effective for, and simultaneously treat, both mental/emotional and physical conditions, whether they appear to exist separately or together.


I request all members to give a detailed listing of their mental / emotinal symptoms at the time of posting their case in addition to the physical symptoms.

Main problem is that patients as well prescriber both get confused by mental picture. That's why I always only ask patient or his friends -- if there is anything unusual in behaviour.

Hi Max,

A man in disease in always stressed. And stress is bound to create anxiety though our ego may not accept that the body is stressed. The mind may live in denial for a while, but not long before it starts accepting that there is something wrong and that is when, it starts feeling the anxiety physically.

So considering the above scenario, every correctly chosen remedy necessarily needs to reduce the stress and anxiety to enable him to get a cure.

I have an interesting doubt here. Let us say, a normal man who is healthy and not stressed or anxious, takes a dose of Aconite 1M.

Will he get stressed? because of proving?

I carried out this experiment on myself and found, I started feeling even better, after a dose of Aconite 1M !

It clearly proves, whether I recognise or not, there is a persistent amount of anxiety/stress in me and it got alleviated with a dose of above medicine.

Infact, i know a few homeopathic doctors, who have cured durg additions to Benzodiazepine with just a daily/alternate days dose of Aconite 30 or 200 over a period of 2 months. I know, it is not that simple in all cases.

Respected Pankaj and all,

This is not homeopathic perspective, but in general.

Mind and body are in no way distinct, they are extensions of each other. I can site the example of teeth and muscles. Teeth are hardened muscles. This needs no proving, as any individual can experiment and find out this to be true. Likewise, mind is the subtler form of body and body is the gross form of mind. Affliction in one would, inexorably, pass on to the other. And body is the collective form of the food we take. So right from the food we take, how much, how many times, what kind of food.,, etc.. the body sustains itself and grows accordingly. Some foods affect the mind through the body, like alcohol etc.. There are different categories of food and their nature and what sort of thoughts they induce in the mind are clearly detailed in Bhagvat Gita.

We have a great advantage in homeopathy. This system includes vital plane, whereas other systems take into account only body and mind. Vital plane is in between body and mind. Hence improving either with homeopathy is much easier, as the access is direct to both. For example, if a patient has great fear, Allopathy cures it in two steps. First, it reduces the speed of thinking and calms down the mind. Second it addresses the fear problem through different part of the brain. In homeopathy, it is direct. If the fear is from known objects, Mimulus and unknown objects, Aspen. Fear of death etc.. ars alb.. There is no need to calm down the mind and treat the patient or rather tranquilize the patient and then talk to his subconscious mind.

In my opinion, we should consider not only mind and body, but include vital system also. There are definite parameters to gauge the vital system. I am sure no one would mistake vital system as sexual power. That is only a very small part of vital system. I think Udaya would be the right person to elaborate this aspect.

Dear Shuddha,

We need no scientists to prove that the universe (brahmand)is made of five basic elements, the Ether, the Air, the Water, the Fire and the Earth, and the body is made up of the same five elements by Panchikaran i.e. a kind of nuclear fusion. Inside our body the Ether is all prevailing though its main abode is the mind and the Soul(the soul is fully comprised of it) whereas the mind has Ether and other elemtns in varying permuted combinations. Ether form then metamorphosises into Air form, air to water, water to fire and fire to Earth which is the hardest of all. I feel and see no surprise when I think that the the prana or the air which we breath into the Soul(the Ether) converts into the liquids and blood and the blood into assunilation and digestion which is fire and from digestion into flesh and flesh into muscles and muscles to hardened earth the Teeth. Inside the body as well as inside the universe, Ether is all prevading Ishwar, whereas water is 70% prevading and air again is almost 90% prevading whereas the Earth and fire have lesser prevalence. The Vital force inside the body to my understanding is Ether. It is self effulgent, formless, odourless, can manifest in any form and is corresponding to Ishwar, None of the five elements are separable from one another and therefore the body is a composite whole evolved out of their synthesis and should be understood as such. Mind is a cumulative empirical epiphenomina. In simplified terms can be considered as a bi-product of human actrions and experiences, give rise to, course and direction to future, thoughts, actions, working in the same way as the celestial body moving away to come back in a ecliptical trajectory, the same way as neutron or electron move inside an atom. The pattern is an evolving result and are inextricably intervowen in a celestial designed pattern. with regards

The textile industry in India is substantial, and largely diversified. It is hard to cover all its aspects even within hour-long presentation, however, research team of Fibre2fashion.com has attempted to gather significant pieces of massively complicated puzzle of this industry.
The Indian textile industry roots thousands of years back. After, the European industry insurrection, Indian textile sector also witnessed considerable development in industrial aspects. Textile industry plays an important role in the terms of revenue generation in Indian economy. The significance of the textile industry is also due to its contribution in the industrial production, employment. Currently, it is the second largest employment provider after agriculture and provides employment to more than 30mn people.
Considering the continual capital investments in the textile industry, the Govt. of India may extend the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) by the end of the 11th Five Year Plan (till 2011-2012), in order to support the industry. Indian textile industry is massively investing to meet the targeted output of $85bn by the end of 2010, aiming exports of $50bn. There is huge development foreseen in Indian textile exports from the $17bn attained in 2005-06 to $50bn by 2009-10. The estimation for the exports in the current financial year is about $19bn. There is substantial potential in Indian exports of technical textiles and home-textiles, as most European companies want to set up facilities near-by the emerging markets, such as China and India.
The global demand for apparel and woven textiles is likely to grow by 25 percent by year 2010 to over 35mn tons, and Asia will be responsible for 85 percent output of this growth. The woven products output will also rise in Central and Southern American countries, however, at a reasonable speed. On the other hand, in major developed countries, the output of woven products will remain stable. Weaving process is conducted to make fabrics for a broad range of clothing assortment, including shirts, jeans, sportswear, skirts, dresses, protective clothing etc., and also used in non-apparel uses like technical, automotive, medical etc...
