POM: Unravelling the Nervous System Part 2: Cerebral Disorders - Part A

It was Sir Jay Holder, who once said, “The nervous system holds the key to the body’s incredible potential to heal itself.” This is clarified by Dr. Hahnemann himself in §16 of the Organon of Medicine, where he says, “… spirit-like alternative powers of the serviceable medicines acting upon our spirit-like vital force, which perceives them through the medium of the sentient faculty of the nerves everywhere present in the organism …” So, these two quotes must tell you the role played by the human nervous system in healing the sick. But, the human nervous system is not only important, it is also very complex. So, this course aims to unravel the nervous system – especially the disorders of the brain. Beginning with detailed discussion on some very important cerebral disorders, such as headache syndromes, epilepsy, sleep disorders, etc., we will go through the cerebrovascular disorders as well.
