Hormonal Problems & Homeopathic treatment

Hormonal Problems (endocrine disorders)

Hormones are special chemicals which act as messengers, triggers and/or commanders to many of the actions and reaction taking place in human the body. For example when we are excited or frightened for any reason all of a sudden our heart beats faster, breathing becomes quicker and hands and feet turns cold. Actually it is a hormone called adrenalin that does all this. There are a number of hormones playing vital role in our day to day living. These are produced from specialized areas called endocrine glands. Suppose if any of such glands are not functioning properly or start overwork (for a number of reasons) what we get is hormonal imbalance which will lead to many troublesome and often incurable illnesses (endocrine disorders). See for ex. diabetes (high sugar in blood). A hormone called insulin is a must for proper digestion of sugar. If it is less in quantity or absent sugar start accumulating in blood and diabetes results.
There are a variety of endocrine disorders. Diabetes, Goiter, Acromegaly, Dwarfism, Cushing's syndrome etc. are only a few. It can also be the lead cause of other major illness like menstrual abnormalities, infertility, hypertension, growth and developmental problems and even cancer. The conventional treatments available for endocrine disorders are to provide with external supply of natural or artificial hormones in its deficiency and to remove the particular gland or part of it in case of its excess. But both can have its unpleasant side effects, especially on long continued use.
If you have homeopathic treatment most cases of endocrine abnormalities can be corrected. Especially minor ones and those detected early. What homeopathy does is to correct the behavior of the gland so that it produces the right amount of hormones. Even though some times it will take a while to show its effect if you persist with the treatment it will surely give you a lasting and most often permanent solution to the problem.

Why Should YOU go to Homeopathy ?

Why should anyone go to a Homeopathic doctor?

Homeopathic treatment is suitable for most people and has the advantage of being completely safe when used correctly. A Homeopath makes efforts to see the disease holistically and that is the main reason why this system is getting more acceptability

Is Homeopathy getting more popular and if so why?

Many people prefer to be benefited through natural treatments rather than by conventional drugs or surgery. Public is also anxious about side effects of drugs, or about its long continued use, especially where children are involved. In case of Homeopathy, these problems do not occur.

Always follow your doctor advice as stopping some medicine may be harmful and taking some other medicines may also be detrimental.

If the symptoms become worse when first taking a homeopathic medicine is it all right or does this indicate the wrong choice of medicine?

Homeopathic medicines seek to stimulate symptoms, not suppress them, so that the body will overcome the disease naturally. Therefore, if symptoms are aggravated briefly, this usually means that the medicine is acting.

A Testimonial of Homeopathy

International Homeopathic Conference in Malaysia organised by MRHP, FAHOM & AHML under the Cahirmanship of Prof Dr Nik Omar

Our entire family has been tremendously helped by Classical Homeopathy. First my wife sought our Homeopathy for depression because there were many side effects with anti-depressants. She found antidepressants were a temporary fix at best, as where homeopathy allowed her body to naturally grow stronger to where she is coping much better on her own now.

Then, my 2 year old daughter suffered from the typical childhood ear infections, doctors wanted to overwhelm her with antibiotics, causing more health issues. Homeopathy really helped her, as well, grow stronger and healthier.
So I decided maybe if homeopathy helped my family so much then maybe it can help with my migraines. I was definitely impressed. No pain relievers helped my migraines but homeopathy has worked for me. The headaches have decreased and I am now a firm believer in homeopathy. Our family will turn to homeopathy to deal with any of its health needs.

The Saying of Mahatama Gandhi

Homeopathy .... cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical and most complete medical science."

Lung cancer Cured

Miracle Healing Through Homeopathy

Lung Cancer Cured

Last 30 years (1977) we had a special healing prayer. My father told us a very interesting story during our Hari Raya Gartering that I wanted to share with you.

He told us that a gentleman came to his clinic in early morning and invited my father to his house to treat a young boy who was critically ill. The lungs were badly damaged and the allopathic doctors confirmed that this boy is suffering from ‘Lung cancer’. The boys are dying at home for 2 months, coughing and vomiting of pure blood every now and than. He was very thin just like ‘starvation boys in Africa’
He was admitted in hospital for one month without any progress and was discharge without any sign of improvement. The parent has called three private allopathic practitioners to their house and almost all of them says ‘nothing’ that they can do, except just ‘wait and see’

On arriving at the house, my father goes direct to the boy’s bed and found out that about 15 people around him administer rite of “ Surah Yassin”. While my father was at the boy’s house, he has seen the boy has vomited half cup of blood every time he start coughing. He stayed for one hour and have seen that the boy has vomited more than three cups of blood.

After doing a careful case taking, my father gave him” Ipecac 3c to be followed by ‘Phos 30c’ bid for 5 days. However, he was curious what happened to the boy and called their parent in few days and asked about the boys.

Their parent told my father " Sir, ( Prof Dr Nik Omar ) we don't understand what happened, while he was in desperately very ill and dying, after taking you medication and prayers ‘ Solat-tu-Hajjat’ his conditioned are perfectly fine and no more coughing and no more vomiting “

This boy turn 30 now are still alive at Kg Chempaka, Kota Bharu, Kelantan, Malaysia.

I found this story very uplifting and wanted to share it with you. I believe in the healing power of Allah and the Miracle Cure of Homeopathy.

In conclusion: What ever disease that you or your family is suffering, don’t give up. Let us try Homeopathy. Homeopathy is the last hope for desperately dying patient.

Stroke and Alternative Treatment


Stroke Management by Homeopathic & Acupuncture Method

We are planning to make our Homeopathic Medicla Centre as one of the world's leading center for management of cerebral vascular diseases through holistic approach of treatment such as stroke, bell palsy, parkinson, etc

Our center provides comprhensive diagnostic and therapeutic care of patient with disorder of blood vessel of brain and spinal cord according to the law of similimum.

We have three centres, the one at Kuala Lumpur and Kota Bharu take only outpatient, who come to the centre for daily therapy.

While our Homeopathic Hospital at Pasir Mas, Kelantan is one of the nation's first didicated in-patient stroke units which offer state of art management of patient with brain infarction, brain hemorrhage and other cerebral vascular diseases where the patent's has refused other medical treatment.

For those who wish to try alternative method of treating stroke patient,. our medical centre offer such treatment

Of course as a holistic way of treatment we will first advised our patient to go first to the government hospital, when they fail, then they can continue their treatment at our centre.

Clinical pathways, standardized outcome measure, continuous quality review and multidisplinary expertise assure excellence in patient management through homeopathy and acupuncture approach of treatment.

HOSNO and FAHOM as part of an academic medical centre, we are constantly in the process of analyzing our clinical results, and reporting them to the medical community at large. This process, which results in presentation at national medical conferences and publications in medical journal, allows us to judge our work critically, in our effort to constantly improve the quality of our centres.

Stroke, which are essence a 'brain attack' result from an interruption in blood circulation to the brain.They are the third leading killer in the country especially in US and leading course of disability.

According to Dr Nik Omar, a senior physician at Homeopathic Medical centre at Pasir Mas say a sudden difficulty with speech, usually slurring or confusion in the most common sign of a stroke.

Their symptom include sudden numbness or weakness in the face or limbs, sudden dimming or loss of vision in one eye and sudden falls or unexplained dizziness. Nausea, double vision and drowsiness are the other warning signs.

People who risk of suffering stroke are:
High blood pressure, diabetes, heart diseases, serious smokers, chronic diseases, etc.

Unfortunately, physician have not yet found a way to completely reverse the damage cause by stroke. Only 10 % of those stricken recover completely.

Our centre is a a research centre for stroke patient through holistic approach, we are doing our best to give a better percentage of cure through our special method of therapy by homeopathy and acupuncture, as we have done earlier.

With more than 22 years of experience, we hope that we can do something better to help the stroke patients in Malaysia.

Brief History of Asian Homeopathic Medical League

The Asian Homeopathic Medical League (AHML) was founded in 1986 at Puna, the city of India. The eminent Homeopaths of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh & Sri Lanka got together and decided to form an organization of Asian Homeopath after the protest walkout during Liga Medicorum Internationlis, the then the only homeopathic orrganisation of the world.

The main point of protest is that the American and European Homeopath were basically allopathic doctors. The Asian homeopath which basically 100 % homeopath who qualified a full 5 yaers from full homeopathic medical college, were not given the right to vote and permission to sit in the scientific season of the Liga congresses, where as large number of homeopatha are all in Asian region.

Due to this discrimination The Asian senior and eminent homeopaths walk out of the Liga Congress in 1986 and formed the Asian Homeopathic Medical League - AHML.
India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Fiji, Brunei, Hong Kong, Afghanistan, South Africa, are its member countries.

In it first meeting, Dr Jugal Kishore (India) was elected as the first President, Dr P.Panday was its second President ( India), Third was Prof Dr Sajjad Hassan Khan ( Pakistan), fourth - Dr Giriendal Pal (India).

So far AHML has conducted 17th International Congresses in different Asian countries. The 18th will be in Malaysia from 4 - 5th October 2009.

Spread of Homeopathy In UK and USA

Spread of Homeopathy In UK & USA
The Spread of Homeopathy

In the UK, homeopathy was established by Dr Frederick Quin (1799-1878) at around 1827 (Two Italian homeopathic doctors (Drs Romani and Roberta) had been employed two years previously by the Earl of Shrewsbury, but had quickly returned to Naples as they could not tolerate the damp English climate.) Quin contracted cholera in 1831 while travelling in Moravia, and attributed his cure to his use of the homeopathic remedy Camphor.
Quin, allegedly the illegitimate son of the Duchess of Devonshire, had excellent social connections, and homeopathy soon became the preferred treatment of the upper classes: the Dukes of Edinburgh and Beaufort were among Quin's patients, and he became physician to the Duchess of Cambridge. At its peak in the 1870s, there were large hospitals in Liverpool, Birmingham, Glasgow, London and Bristol [16]; the Bristol hospital was funded by the W.D. & H.O. Wills tobacco family, while the 'Hahnemann Hospital' in Liverpool was built by members of the Tate family of sugar importers, who also funded the Tate Gallery in London.
The primary reason that homeopathy became popular in the 19th century was the remarkable results that homeopathic physicians experienced in treating people suffering from the infectious disease epidemics that raged at the time. [10] [11] Epidemics of cholera, scarlet fever, typhoid, and yellow fever were rampant and killed large numbers of people who became ill with them. And yet, death rates in homeopathic hospitals were commonly one-half or even one-eighth of the death rates in the conventional medical hospitals.
From the very beginnings of homeopathy, its claims were treated with skepticism by the medical and scientific establishments. Sir John Forbes (1787-1861), physician to Queen Victoria, declared in 1861 that most cases of disease which recover under homeopathy "recover by means of the curative powers of Nature alone." He concluded that homeopathy is "one of the greatest delusions...of the healing art" and the only good it brings is by lessening "the monstrous polypharmacy which has always been the disgrace of our art - by at once diminishing the frequency of administration of drugs and lessening their dose." Professor Sir James Young Simpson said, of the highly diluted drugs, that there is "no poison, however strong or powerful, the billionth or decillionth of which would in the least degree affect a man or harm a fly."

Homeopathy came to India with Dr Martin Honigberger (1795-1869) in 1829-30. India now has the largest homeopathic infrastructure in the world, with 300,000 qualified homeopaths, 180 colleges, 7500 government clinics, and 307 hospitals, and 10% of the population are estimated to use homeopathy exclusively for their medical needs. [13]

Homeopathy was brought to the USA by Dr Hans Burch Gram (1787-1840) in 1825 and became popular there partly because of the excesses of conventional medicine, partly because of the impressive results it experienced in the treatment of infectious disease epidemics of the day, and partly by the influence of Constantine Hering (1800-1880). Hering immigrated to America in 1833 and became known as the 'father of American homeopathy' due to authoring textbooks for practicing homeopaths as well as books for the general public on how to use homeopathic medicines in home care Hering's contributions to the theory of homeopathy include his "laws" of cure. He proposed that healing proceeds (and symptoms disappear):

Homeopathy In US

By 1900, hardly any city in the USA with a population of more than 50,000 was without a homeopathic hospital, but in the 1930s, the popularity of homeopathy waned, partly due to the Flexner Report of 1910, which led to the closure of virtually all medical schools teaching alternative medicine, and by the 1950s, homeopathy had almost disappeared. Nevertheless, in 1995 sales of homeopathic remedies were estimated at US$201 million, and the number of homeopaths increased from less than 200 in the 1970s to about 3,000 in 1996.

Brief History of Homeopathy Malaysia

Brief History of Homeopathy in Malaysia 1940 - 2009

Till today Homeopathy has been in existence for almost two centuries. Ever since its discovery Homeopathy has flourished all over the world. In Europe especially in Germany, where it originated, England, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria and other European countries, Homeopathy is not uncommon. Likewise it has flourished in Latin America especially in Brazil and Argentina where it has ever gained recognition by their respective governments since the very early days. It has also spread to other American countries.

Over times, Homeopathy has penetrated into Asia such as India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and further south to Australia. For after 127 years Homeopathy finally reached Malaya in 1940's.

It has almost been half a century now that Homeopathy being existence in Malaysia. Over the period only a fraction or our population really knows what is Homeopathy is all about. The process of disseminating information about homeopathy those days was rather slow.

Homeopathy in Malaya was said to be brought here by the Colonel A.S. Rajah, a British Army Officer who later spread the new idea to Mr Burhanuddin Al Helmy. Mr Burhanuddin later went to India to study Islamic Religious Theologies and while at India he suffered from bronchial asthma, who later cured with homeopathy treatment.

While studying religion theologies, he started study homeopathy and qualified both subjects at the same time. He came back to Malaysia in early 40's and started propagating homeopathy, That is the first time, homeopathy were ever mentioned among the Malay society. Dr Burhanuddin Helmy started teaching homeopathy in a class of 15 students at Gunong Semanggol Arabic School. Among them were late Dr Dali Muin, Dr Mohd Noor Nordin, Dr Ghazali Mahmood, Dr Hashim. and later came late Dr Mohammed Yaacob and Dr Hj Abd Hamid Baba.

In 1960 some of these students united to form a homeopathic society by the name of Persatuan Homeopathy Malaysia with the headquarter at Taiping, Perak and later came another Persatuan Homeopathy Bumiputra at Johor Baharu,

A Landmark The Spread of Homeopathy In MalaysiaIV>

In 1977 Dr Nik Omar bin Haji Nik Daud, a young professional who qualified homeopathy at Pakistan Homeopathy Homeopathy Medical College in 1975 and further his education at London, UK came back to Malaysia in 1977 and started a first complete Homeopathic Clinic right in the heart of his home town, Kota Bharu, Kelantan.

Although homeopathy was little known and widely misunderstood at this time, the cures brought by Dr Nik Omar through his homeopathic prescription won much acclaim for Homeopathy for Homeopathy.

In 1979 with seven students, Dr Nik Omar began teaching homeopathy, thus laying the foundation of the first ever homeopathic college in Malaysia with the name of 'The Faculty of Homeopathy Malaysia' When started the Advance Diploma in Homoepathy- ADHom. was a three years course. In 1990 the course was upgraded to 4 years Diploma in Homeopathy System - DHMS. In year 2000 when a group of Ministry of Health Malaysia came and inspect the college, a long discussion was held at Kota Bharu and with the advise form Minsitry of Health, we lift up the course at par with other homeopathic institution world wide with a five years - Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine - BHMS.

Today Faculty of Homeopathy Malaysia is well respected by all admire of homeopathy throughout the world. Student all over the world are still coming to do various courses such as M.F.Hom. MDHom, Diploma in Acupuncture, Cupping, Naturopathy, Reflexology, etc.

"With 11.5 acres of college compound, it is considered as one of the biggest and only homeopathic and complementary organization in Asean ," says Cindy Tham, The Sun Newspaper July 26, 1998

" Dr Nik Omar has written hundreds of articles about his work in local and oversea newspaper and magazines. His is too bullish. Both his colleagues and rival acknowledge his tremendous energy. All recognise that he, more than anyone, is responsible for raising the medicine's profile in Malaysia," says Allison Nidel, A British Correspondent.

From one department of Homeopathy in 1979, today in year 2009 we have four Department
1. Department of Homeopathy Medicine
2. Department of Chinese Medicine - Acupuncture
3. Department of Malay Medicine
4. Department of Complementary Medicine.
