Homeosiniatry presentation by Jerry Kantor

  1. 1. The Convergence of Homeopathy and Traditional Chinese Medicine
  2. 2. Homeosiniatry…  From Homeo, denoting homeopathy  From Siniatry, denoting sinology or the study of Chinese Culture
  3. 3. Where cohort modalities merge: The Big Picture Viewpoint…
  4. 4. Operant Principle…Irritability  Contained within any definition of life  Meaning when it is poked, it reacts
  5. 5. The knifepoint of convergence: Exploitation of Irritability  Acupuncture A mini stabbing  Homeopathy A mini poisoning
  6. 6. Homeosiniatry’s Origins  The writings of homeopathy’s founder, Samuel Hahnemann (1756-1843)  The writings of Gottfried Rademacher (1772-1850)  In the 19th century, the work of three generations of the Weihe family, German physicians and homeopaths
  7. 7. Homeopathy’s Founder Samuel Hahnemann Similia similibus curentur
  8. 8. From Samuel Hahnemann  ”… that if the remedy is chosen well, it touches all the ill points (‘kranken Punkte’) in a curative way and they will disappear in a wonderful way.”  Hahnemann chose not to include pin- point digital palpation (so as to find the sensitive points) as part of the homeopathic diagnostic process.
  9. 9. Gottfried Rademacher A German physician and homeopathic contemporary of Hahnemann who did choose to explore diagnosis according to pressure point sensitivity
  10. 10. Dr. Auguste Weihe (1840-1896) In support of Hahnemann the 3rd Weihe generation physician, concluded that: Whenever a particular homeopathic drug picture is indicated, certain points on the surface of the patient’s body become especially sensitive to digital pressure. When the individual’s appropriate remedy is administered these points lose their sensitivity
  11. 11. Dr. Weihe identified: …270 points assignable to specific homeopathic symptom complexes. But he used them only in order to objectively verify his homeopathic remedy selection
  12. 12. Homeosiniatry in modern times  Dr. Roger de La Fuye  Clark Manning and Louis Vanrenen  Prakash Vakil  Jerry M. Kantor
  13. 13. Dr. Roger de La Fuye French acupuncturist and homeopath…  Discovered by 1947 that most of Weihe’s points coincided exactly with acu-points  Found that the associated homeopathic and acupuncture symptomatology of the points matched  Was the first doctor to treat his patients with parallel therapy, using needle acupuncture and corresponding homeopathic remedies (given orally).
  14. 14. Dr. Roger de La Fuye French acupuncturist and homeopath…  Showed that the combination was at least equal if not superior to therapy with each modality applied separately  Continued adding to Weihe’s points so that homeosiniatry now uses 482 points, 434 on Chinese meridians and 48 extra points. A current widespread practice of homeosiniatry is to inject sterile homeopathic remedies (diluted and potentized in 0.9% saline) into acu-points.
  15. 15. De La Fuye’s Seminal Atlas (untranslated) L’Acupuncture Chinois sans Mystere Traite D’Acupuncture, La Synthese De L’Acupuncture et De L’Homeopathie L’Homeosiniatrie Diathermique Tome II, Atlas D’Acupuncture La Synthese Pratique De L’Acupuncture Chinoise et De L’Homeopathie
  16. 16. When divergent explanations converge… A mystery to unlock
  17. 17. The challenge to theoreticians…  The action of an acupuncture point reflects Zang-Fu, Channels and Collaterals theory  A homeopathic remedy reflects the original substance’s position within culture, medicine, or the cosmos On what basis might the two forms of reference be reconciled?
  18. 18. A Rich Vein to Mine… The benefit to TCM: Elucidation of theory The benefit to homeopathy: Enrichment of materia medica
  19. 19. A case in point, Berberis (barberry) Acupuncture point sensitivities  Tianshu, St. 25, Alarm Point of the LI  Jingmen, GB 25, Alarm Point of the Kd Berberis’ key indicators  Abdominal swelling and rumbling gas in the colon  Kidney and gall stones  Ailments from hidden wounds  Diminished libido
  20. 20. Berberis’ Cohort Benefits: For TCM: Elucidates how a plant, barberry, and its embedded theme, “hidden psychic wounds” relates to alarm within the LI and the Kidney For Homeopathy: Enriches materia medica by relating the remedy-state’s pathology to TCM’s Kidney sexual function and associated fear; and Stomach/Sp associated anxiety
  21. 21. Clark Manning and Louis Vanrenen Authors of the 1988 book Bioenergetic Medicines East and West, Acupuncture and Homeopathy  Introduced TCM and homeopathic healing philosophies to the general public  Discussed how the materia medica of basic remedies were a fit with specific TCM diagnoses
  22. 22. Homeosiniatry examples from Manning and Vanrenen Homeopathic Remedy  Nux Vomica TCM Diagnosis  Liver invading the Stomach
  23. 23. Homeosiniatry examples from Manning and Vanrenen Homeopathic Remedy  Aconite TCM Diagnosis  External Cold
  24. 24. Indian homeopath Prakash Vakil Author of the 2013 book The Tongue That Does Not Lie  Recognizes TCM’s notion that the tongue mirrors the stomach, but also the condition of the patient as a whole  Correlates the tongue’s features with homeopathic remedies
  25. 25. Homeosiniatry tongue diagnosis examples from Prakash Vakil DARK (comp. Discolouration, black):  Bell., mur-ac., phos.,  sul-ac., verat-v.  centre: Arn., bapt.  cough, with: Bapt.  dark streak in centre, typhoid tongue: Arn., bapt.,  mur-ac.
  26. 26. Jerry M. Kantor, Lic. Ac, CCH Author of the 2011 book Interpreting Chronic Illness The Convergence of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy and Biomedicine
  27. 27. Interpreting Chronic Illness’ contribution to homeosiniatry  Reconfigures and updated the Five Phases so that its theory functions as a template upon which homeopathic materia medica can be superimposed
  28. 28. Features of the revamped Five Phase theory  Renamed “Sense Dimensional Analysis”  The “five emotions” are expanded into the vastly more sophisticated “five core conundrums”  Method used, Phenomenology Anger Chaos vs Creativity Joy Isolation vs Synchony Worry Anxiety vs Challenge Grief Disorientation vs Centeredness Fear Entropy vs Consolidaion
  29. 29. SIGHT Chaos vs Creativity TOUCH Isolation vs Synchrony TASTE Anxiety vs Challenge SMELL Disorientaton vs Centeredness HEARING Entropy vs Consolidation
  30. 30. Sense Dimensional Theory’s Five Core Conundrums Earth Phase Core Emotion: Worry Sense Dimension of Taste Core Conundrum: Anxiety versus Challenge
  31. 31. Sense Dimensional Theory’s Five Core Conundrums Metal Phase Core Emotion: Grief Sense Dimension of Smell Core Conundrum: Disorientation versus Centeredness
  32. 32. Sense Dimensional Theory’s Five Core Conundrums Water Phase Core Emotion: Terror Sense Dimension of Hearing Core Conundrum: Entropy versus Consolidation
  33. 33. Sense Dimensional Theory’s Five Core Conundrums Wood Phase Core Emotion: Anger Sense Dimension of Sight Core Conundrum: Chaos versus Creativity
  34. 34. Explanatory power of Homeosiniatric Five Phases theory  Incorporates Eight Principle concepts formerly beyond the scope of the Five Phases  Blends homeopathy’s specificity and concreteness into TCM’s abstract schema.  Models with sophistication biomedical diagnoses of chronic illness states so they become existentially meaningful as opposed to random and frightening  Offers the first comprehensively integrated diagnostic and treatment model of three powerful medical systems Sight Touch Taste Smell Hearing
  35. 35. The Homeosiniatric Five Phases theory also…  Allows for creative modeling of the known Generating, Control, and Retrograde cycles plus a new cycle describing a Compensation dynamic  Creates predictive scenarios such as disorder of smell presaging the onset of Alzheimers  Makes sense of what are otherwise inexplicable pathologies such as the frameshift mutation’s affinity for breast and colon cancer  Updates and reinvigorates the Five Phases so that they become relevant to biomedicine
  36. 36. When all five dimensions are disharmonized… An efficient and meaningful means of modeling the two great chronic illness challenges of our time: • Cancer (see ICI) • Autism (see forthcoming book) Chaos Isolation Anxiety Disorientation Entropy
  37. 37. Homeosiniatry! Putting it all together…
