A case of Angina - treated with homeopathy

Sanket Taldevkar sent me this case, someone he has treated for Angina. I am pleased to publish this, on his behalf, in order to show the nature of the homeopathy interview - the precursor to enabling patients to access safe and effective homeopathic treatment. It is published just as he sent it to me, and demonstrates just how effective homeopathy can be in the treatment of Angina.


Not every homeopathy works in the same way, but notice how the emotional symptoms of the patient have been considered in equal measure to the physical symptoms of Angina. This shows how homeopathy qualifies as a truly holistic therapy. 

The mind, and our emotions, are central to our physical health.

UNDERSTANDING OF THE CASE : PT IS SUFFERING FROM PAIN IN CHEST, ON INQUIRING ABOUT PAIN WE COME TO KNOW THE BASIC PROBLEM FOR HIM IS , HE IS NOT ABEL TO MAINTAIN HIS STAMINA FOR PERFORMANCE .THIS IS THE MOST TROUBLING FOR HIM.
KINGDOM MINERAL: BASIC ISSUE IS ABOUT STRUCTURE, BECAUSE ON ASKING ABOUT PAIN THERE IS NO ISSUE OF PLANT SENSITIVITY OR THERE IS NOTHING SPECIFIC SENSATION WHICH INDICATES PLANT KINGDOM, SAME WITH ANIMAL THERE IS NO ISSUE OF VICTIM AGGRESSOR OR COMPETITION OR BASIC SURVIVAL ISSUE.

HERE PT IS STRUGLLING WITH HIMSELF, HE PERCIEVS PROBLEM AS A DISTURBANCE IN MAINTAINING HIS PERFORMANCE, AGAIN WITH MINERAL HE HAS PROBLEM IN PERFORMANCE NOT ABOUT SECURITY, POWER, OR IDENTITY SO IT INDICATES ROW 5. IN ROW 5 HE HAS STRUGGLING TO MAINTAIN WHAT HE HAS ACHIVED TILL DATE SO IT, NEED TO MAINTAIN IT SO IT’S COLUM 11
