Chronic Illness

Unlike acute diseases which have a limited duration upon the vital force, chronic diseases can remain in the individual for decades. These diseases do not necessarily result in the death of the individual and they may not die directly from the symptoms of this disease.

The chronic nature of their escalating symptomatology brings about great hardship to the individual in one way or another and severely undermines the quality of life through a continuum of ongoing fixed symptoms as well as the addition of ancillary sufferings. All this eventually leads to a terminal situation due to a weakening of the vital force.

Whether it be a specific terminal disease or not, chronic diseases are about the erosion of the stability of the life force. It is only through this continual decline, in the all of the dynamic aspects of the vital force, that we observe the general downward spiraling trend in the over all well being of the individual.

These patterns of deterioration take place on all the levels of the organism simultaneously, i.e.; the physical, mental, and emotional spheres of a person.

For example, a person suffering with terminal cancer, long before it has been diagnosed, may show mental and emotional symptoms years before the overt symptoms manifest. Some people may suggest that this person used to be more friendly and out going until a particular tragedy occurred some years earlier.

The patient may also complain how their mental clarity used to be more clear before the same event. The patient will be able to relate their loss of mental clarity by stating that they now have a horrible memory for peoples names, or that now, unlike before, they can't remember anything and always have to make lists of everything. The patient will usually not recall how they were more sociable, or less irritable. Of course, when these issues are brought to the attention of the patient, they will say others have become more obnoxious and that's why they want less to do with them.

What they will most likely fail to recognize, is that a traumatic event in someone's life if left unresolved, has enough power in the event to subvert the quality and the stability of the vital force. The destabilization of the life force, with all of its attending checks and balances existing solely to promote homeostasis, then tacitly permits from a place of weakness, illness and disease to begin to occur.

There and then begins a process of subtle deterioration of well being, a compromise of the harmonious relationship of functions and sensations of all centers to one degree or another. This almost imperceptible decline is recognized by the vital force's attempt to call for help, by producing symptoms. It is the accurate reporting and faithful recording of these injured cries that allow the healer to clearly prescribe a therapeutic protocol for the alleviation of the suffering.

This is the end of the Patient's Guide to Understanding the Essentials of Classical Homeopathy.
