He saw the possibility of creating a space in the case witnessing process where our patient’s logical left brain can be set aside, and they could spontaneously connect with their inner pattern guided by the right brain.

  • It focuses on understanding the patient’s experience of their symptoms and illness at a deeper level beyond just the physical symptoms.
  • The goal is to access the “delusion” or inner disturbance of the patient.
  • It uses careful questioning and observation to understand the patient’s hand gestures, body language, facial expressions, tone of voice, use of words, etc. These give clues to the inner state of the patient.
  • The homeopath tries to enter the “inner world” of the patient and see their symptoms from their perspective. This helps reveal their unique patterns, sensitivities, life experiences that have contributed to their state.
  • More emphasis is placed on the characteristic mental/emotional symptoms vs just the physical symptoms. The mind and body are seen as intrinsically connected.
  • The right brain approach aims to find the central delusion or root disturbance around which the patient’s symptoms revolve. The correct homeopathic remedy resonates with this delusional state.
  • It requires intuitive pattern recognition skills vs just logical analysis. The homeopath has to make empathetic connections with the patient’s inner world.

The Right Brain approach in homeopathy is a book born from years of thinking, deep personal experience, innovative experiments, and a lightning bolt of inspiration that guided Dr. Dinesh Chauhan to create a human-centric atmosphere during the case witnessing process where people can safely let go of their left brain and heartily embrace their right brain expressions that are rooted in their non-logical, spontaneous, subconscious true and innermost core.

In the day-to-day practice, the right brain approach to homeopathy has enabled Dr. Chauhan to create a brilliant twist in the scientifically intuitive case witnessing process and his numerous patients are the direct beneficiaries of such an evolution in his approach to case-witnessing and, as it turns out, the right-brain approach has become a truly integrative holistic method for understanding the core patterns of the patients at the deepest level.
