Health Interview - Dr. Saunil Malwania

by Dharmesh Bhadja on 30th December, 2011 at 11:34 AM CEST

As part of the C:F Action Team #7, Health Saviours, I had the opportunity to conduct an Interview with Dr. Saunil Malwania, one my mentors and inspirations. Here I am presenting a short extract of the full interview. Enjoy and get the insights!

Q: What do you think is the future and scope of alternative sciences like Homeopathy?

As every idea that is closer to truth has a space in this world, Homeopathy has a very big space in the health sector. In the coming future, it is going to be the primary health service for anyone who knows about this science. I am sure with adequate information to the masses, Homeopathy should be able to become the first choice for treatment and the contemporary (Allopathic branch) would become an Alternative or complementary one. The need of the hour is to disseminate information on various alternatives to the lay people and allow them to choose the most “Rational one” - give people a chance to take an informed decision.

The idea of Holistic or ‘Holistic’ model is ingrained with everyone. Since it is not practiced in contemporary medicine, it needs to be explained to the patient and then only the compliance follows.

A standard has to be created to put this model in practice. Dr. M. L. Dhawale and ICR (Institute of Clinical Research) have inculcated the Indian philosophy into the art and science of homoeopathy to make this model operational. This road is difficult but not impossible. There can be innumerable hurdles in life of any family physician. I would say, it is individually different with every physician. We are not performing a specific role as such. All the roles of the physician – friend, philosopher and guide are inter-related with each other and with his personal life as well. It is indeed difficult to keep water –tight compartments between them. While performing the role of a physician, we may have to see that the other roles are not neglected and the balance has to be maintained.

Q: What is your message for the young practitioners?

Keep the first aphorism "the highest mission of the physician is to restore the sick to health" (Sir Samuel Hahnemann, Father of Homeopathy) in mind and direct all your actions through that. It is not necessary that you should be a clinician alone. You can go into various other fields namely research, management, social services etc. I firmly believe that if we make sincere efforts, we are definitely rewarded - either apparently or through events, sometimes we may consider them as “lucky”. There is nothing like luck, it is pure hard work and sincere efforts rewarded in one or the other way.

For the physicians who are keen on research, there is a huge scope. There is lot of need for reproving our drugs from Homoeopathic Materia Medica. Now with the help of computers, the task can be simpler and more systematic. One needs to follow the classical principles laid down for proving and not rely on any theories, hypothetical pictures, so called logical generalizations etc.

There are many other fields, but it must be borne in mind that somewhere, we need to sacrifice something to attain something. Ask your-self, are we ready for it?

What's Next?

This is surely not the end of this Interview. Look out for the Health Saviours, Action Team #7's Combined Report in February 2012 when we will reveal all the rest of the interview by all other Action Team members as well!

this interview made me curious to know and read the health report in 2012...

"Being a writer - you can write about anything
Being an action team member - you can take any action
Being a health saviors - you can do health related activities

But being a health saviors action team & writer - this is the best thing you did... taking interveiw of people who are working at grass and level is the best part of your process which encourage change makers a lot and inspire many.. :)

best wishes for feb and other articles & interviews.. :)

It has been proved a long time ago by Hahnemann that Homeopathy works….
But the problem is: we are still trying to prove that it works. It is another way of proving that it doesn’t work…..
After a long time of thinking I figured that everything needs to be proved as the science and art evolves and parameter changes. Hahnemann was intelligent so he proved its truism according to the standards of that time. People of that time understood and accepted. But we are still not able to figure a way out of the question.
The future depends on the trust we can create after proving it universally like Law of Sir Isaac Newton and Einstine.
In the way that everyone can see and test it on their own………
We have to figure out “How can everyone see?”
Once it’s done no body have to worry because world will take over the system towards new era…….

And last but not the least...... Nice work....
