Pediatric endocrinologist statement about efficacy of homeopathy in diseases, where modern medicine cannot help. Dr.Olga Habchi Obs.Gynae. have got new speciality-homeopathic practitioner. I am a colleague and friend of Dr. Olga since university. When Dr .Olga told me and my husband ,that she is studying homeopathy, both of us were worried and told her just at least not to give up obs gynae practice.
Then later on she finished her studies and was told us how difficult it was and how exhausting the exams were. Additionally, she proudly told us about how she met the infamous homeopath Prof. George Vithoulkas in The International Academy of Classical Homeopathy in Alonissos, Greece. Furthermore describing how knowledgeable and just amazing his lectures and seminars were.
We asked her how homeopathy works. She said that it is better to prove that it works rather than explaining how it works and that if we had any problems, she would be able to treat us. Unfortunately, we had some problems. As a result she took 3 cases –mine, my sister’s, and my son’s.
I was surprised how long and thorough consultation was! After asking many questions, (needed to determine) she converted our symptoms to “rubrics” and inserted them in a special software. Then she got names of remedies, but in order to choose the correct one, she would still have to work with additional information derived from many books about homeopathic remedies.
I was thinking, Oh my God, such a long way, practicing modern medicine is much easier, it is just one medicine for everyone. What did she do? She just wasted her time by studying homeopathy.
Finally, she came up with names of ‘our similimum remedies’ meaning our most matching remedies for us.
We started taking the homeopathy after dissolving them in bottle of water. By that time, I already briefly read about homeopathy, and was shocked to know that in preparation of a remedy,the crude material was going to be diluted thousands of times. I wondered how there aren’t any trace of initial material in these little pellets, so how it will work? Then, Dr. Olga diluted the pills in just a bottle of water, which means an even smaller chance to find any particles of the homeopathic remedy. Actually to me, carrying the title of The Head of Pediatric Endocrinologist in The Republic of Russia with a huge population of 1 million people, and dealing with hundreds of diabetic children, it was like just water and a name of medicine inside. Then suspicions came to my mind, placebo? Is this all for the placebo effect?
But I knew Dr. Olga ever since 1981, we studied in the same medical university in one group for 6 years. Then, after ordinatura (Master degree, her in obs gynae, me in pediatric), we worked in city hospital as night registrars, meeting in the mornings at the office of the head of the hospital to report about for night duty. I knew how she was so responsible and such a perfectionist since school, where she was awarded a golden medal.
So only because I knew Dr. Olga, I trusted her. I knew she was so busy and never invested her time and energy in something useless.
Ok, then suppose the medicine in water is placebo. Then, probably, it may work on me and my sister, but not with my 9 year old son 9 even though he likes her and always wait for her rare visits.
We started taking remedies, she left to Dubai.
For my sister’s case, she had an extreme hoarseness of voice, with a duration of 6 months after a massive operation on her lungs. She was taking several medicines for a month and a half. Nothing helped. Doubts came to our minds, but there was no other alternative, so she continued. Then, once, my daughter, was called and when sister answered the phone, she thought by her voice, she was talking with me. Our voices were similar before the hoarseness appeared, and I realized that’s my sister’s voice was normal again.
For my son’s case, he use to have a tremendous fear of the dark, being alone and abandoned. He was never able to sleep by himself, we had to lie down next to him, read a book, then only, after a period of time, with the lights on and one of us next to him, he will sleep. One time, we had a guest and I told him to go lie down and I would come soon to read. I came to his room after 3 hours, because I was busy, and what did I see? Correct, he was not sleeping, just lying down, waiting for me. Additionally, he has a chronic sinusitis, for which he is prescribe antibiotics 4-5 times per year.
We give him a remedy, for 2 months, every other day. We did not feel the difference since we see him everyday. Only when my daughter came, she noticed a great improvement. I asked her to let him sleep, like usually lying down next to him and read a book till he will sleep. She was busy with a telephone conversation. Then, she went to her brother’s bedroom and found out that he was sleeping already, very peacefully, without jerking or grinding his teeth! It was the first time in 9 years! His fears were disturbing him less and now he always sleeps by himself but with a small night lamp in the room.His sinusitis stopped bothering him as well. it was the first time he did not use antibiotics for whole year.
For my case, I had a pain in my knees, hot flashes at night, and attacks of profuse perspirations. After 1 -2 months, my knees became much better, as well as other problems.
So when I saw Dr. Olga in Dubai after 5 months, I told her how everything went normal after her treatment. She was happy as we were. I confessed to her, that if I was younger, I would definitely study homeopathy. It is so difficult, so many strange names of remedies, so much memorizing of actions of each one. And guess what? All of them have same symptoms, but with little differences.
The homeopath has to dig out this tiny, most important symptoms, which the patient, sometimes, will not even report. Then he will analyze the case, repertorize in a special software or with the help of huge books. Great results will only appear if he chooses the correct ONE out of 2000 remedies.
Great knowledge, desire to help, an analytical brain, all what’s needed to be successful homeopath! Dr. Olga always compares the process of homeopathic consultations with the job of detectives. I told her she works like Sherlock Holmes! Taking details of case, sometimes asking relatives and friends of the patient about his character, temperament, behavior in different situations, food desires and so on. I know that she enjoys the process because after finishing school, she was planning to study law, to become a detective. However, her father, a conservative man, said that a daughter had to study in the same city, and live in her parents’ house, not in a student’s dormitory. During those days in our city, a university of law was not existing. As a result, she chose a medical career and never regretted her choice. Consequently, her childhood dreams came true in her new career as a successful homeopath!
I’m am very thankful for Dr. Olga as she helped my family and prepared a lot of cases for my diabetic patients, relatives, as well as my neighbors.
