WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathy is a unique system of medicine that combines the best of modern medicine and natural medicine. Its uniqueness lies in its individualized approach of addressing diseases/disorders from their roots and catering to every individual’s own distinct body type, presentation of symptoms & personality profile. Homeopathic medicines therefore are customized for each patient and helps boost their immunity so that the body heals by itself with no side effects.
Symptoms, are a body’s expression of saying there is some internal disorder that needs to be corrected. Since no two individuals are alike, their symptoms are not alike either. Homeopathy focuses on individualization of the case and understanding what factors have caused this diseased state then charting the evolution of the disease in the sick individual and applying the appropriate Constitutional treatment.
Conventional medicine therefore, by treating symptoms treats the end product of the disease while Homeopathic therapy aims at treating the disease at its root cause. Individualized therapy helps Homeopathy give more consistent results and improved chances of achieving complete cure.
Dr. Aziz Merchant, Homeopathic Physician
Dr. Aziz Merchant completed his 8 ½ years of medical education and residency in Bombay, India. For the past 7 years, he practiced in India where he had the privilege of working with some of the best Homeopaths in the country. During this time, Dr. Merchant gained intensive clinical experience in treating chronic, debilitating illnesses as well as acute diseases. He also lectured at his postgraduate research institute for 3 years, teaching anatomy, physiology, pathology, medicine, immunology, genetics and embryology, and Homeopathic Materia Medica.
Since 2010, CosMedics has proudly worked with Dr. Merchant, where he has provided the Homeopathic arena a fresh perspective that focuses on the genetic constitutional make-up of the patients. His experience takes into account embryology and genetics in studying the disease pattern of each case, since no 2 diseased individuals have similar symptoms and etiologies. This perspective enables him to provide consistent results in even serious pathological cases.
WHICH CONDITIONS CAN HOMEPATHY TREAT?
While in Bombay, Dr. Merchant saw a lot of pediatric and dermatological cases. He also wrote a thesis on “Homeopathic management of Post myocardial infarction patients” and treated cases of coronary artery disease, congestive cardiac failure and hypertension with considerable success.
In Canada, Dr. Merchant has successfully treated patients for fertility disorders, skin disorders, pediatric disorders, depression, post partum depression, menopausal issues and providing safe and effective alternatives to hormone replacement therapies.
In most cases his patients are those who have tried every possible modality out there but did not achieve results. Homeopathy works wonders for these “all hopes lost” cases due to its unique approach to treating them.
