2. Index Finger – Management of Acute Diseases
We usually use index finger to point out things and to point out a person. This index finger is to show the effectiveness of Homoeopathic medicines within no time. One must use drugs and remedies to reduce the intensity of symptoms of acute disease. We can use prepaid medicines to reduce the duration of acute diseases. Don’t bother about the Miasm and underlying reason of the spontaneous out burst of latent psora and all. Try to win the heart of patient by alleviating his/her most distressing symptom at the earliest.

The objective of Management of acute diseases will be as follows.

  1. Gave relief to the most distressing symptoms.
  2. Cut short the duration of diseases

III. Middle Finger – Marketing Management
Homoeopathic system of medicine is badly in need of Marketing to achieve its deserving targets. Only 30% of potential patients are reaching to Homoeopathy. The cases to be treated only by Homoeopathy are also turning to other system of medicines because of lack of awareness among people. Few cases shall be treated by any systems of treatment are reaching under the fold of Homoeopathic treatment.

Though we had enough propaganda regarding the effectiveness of Homoeopathic treatment, people doesn’t know the real potential of Homoeopathy. They won’t believe us when we are saying we have a remedial measure for each and every disease. We never said that we don’t have any treatment for a particular disease. We are trying our level best to contribute something to the health service in every health hazard. It is time to stop jumping in to every health issue though we can contribute a little in every health issue. We must find out our unique area where others can’t do anything. When we won in our task people will admit us. Following techniques shall use for Marketing Homoeopathy.

    • Writing articles in leading magazines are advertisements.
    • A list of diseases to be treated only with Homoeopathic Medicines should be displayed in your clinic.
    • A Brochure or palm let about your clinic will be marketing for Homoeopathy.
    • A list of disease shall be treated with Homoeopathic medicines should be displayed in your clinic.
    • A universal hike in cost of medicine shall be adopted in local areas.
    • Consultation fee is badly the need of the hour.
    • Refer to a Homoeopathic Specialist will market Homoeopathy further.
    • By knowing more and more about less and less things you will become a specialist one day.
    • We together shall compel Govt. to give Advertisement about effectiveness of Homoeopathic Treatment.
    • Every advertisement will be a small step of marketing Homoeopathy.
    • Brand Your Homoeopathy and Thus Brand Homoeopathy in Toto.

IV. Credibility Management
Public are skeptics about the credibility of our claims. So it is our duty to prove the effectiveness of Homoeopathic treatment by providing leaving examples and documentary evidences. Our system is badly in need of statistical studies. If we are claiming that we have effective treatment for Chikun Gunya then we have to publish a statistical data. We shall publish the failures too if any, as Hahnemann suggested. Publishing the failures is not a failure but failing in doing so is a failure. Loss co credibility about a system starts from unnecessary offers. So just offer what you can deliver or offer a little less that you can deliver. Delivering what you offer and a little extra will be considered as quality.

Following points should be there in the mind of a Credibility Manager Homoeopath.

    1. Keep Document of each cure cases.
    2. Make statistics of cured cases and show the failure rate too.
    3. Make sure that your patient convinced about the process of cure.
    4. Never make statistics or Documents of Normal abnormalities and self limiting diseases.
    5. Keep all documents of treatments, including treatment of other system of medicines in spiral binds.
    6. Upload your documents to net let it live in air.
    7. Promise what you can keep it.
    8. Don’t be censorious or slanderous.

V. Image Management – Little finger.

  • What is the Image about a Homoeopath among the public?
  • Do you ever ask such a question to you?
  • If not it is the time to ask yourself that what is your image among public?
  • Do they seek your help to clarify their doubts about health?
  • If so you have crossed the first step of keeping the image of Homoeopathy. 

Still some people believe that Homoeopaths are fraudulent and they are cheating patients by giving placebo. Some people still believe that Homoeopaths are using steroids. They don’t know that steroid is not a panacea to establish cure in patients. It is our duty to make this system and it’s philosophy more transparent. It is our duty to transform the misconception about Homoeopaths that we are rebels in the field of health. We together must make this system more people oriented than philosophy oriented. Each one of Homoeopathic fraternity in the entire world is an ambassador of Homoeopathy.

People will evaluate Homoeopathy and its quality by analyzing the words and deeds of Homoeopath. So each movement of a Homoeopath should be quality oriented. Though we cannot change our character we can change our personality. Character is what we are doing in our bath room or at darkness when nobody is there in 1 kilometer circumference. But personality is what others are observing in you.

Following points should me there in minds of every Homoeopath.

    1. Furnish your clinic with minimum standards.
    2. Use Medical equipments as much as possible.
    3. Update your General medical Knowledge every Day.
    4. Present where you are a need.
    5. Invest in your body.
    6. Keep Good health
    7. Talk positively
    8. Bring happiness to those people around you.
    9. Don’t be nosy in health issues
    10. Reach with invitation only
    11. Be with organizations
    12. Get along with people
    13. Say “I am a Homoeopath” boldly

If the five fingers viz. Management of Chronic Disease, Management of Acute Diseases, Marketing of Homoeopathy, Managing Credibility & Image put together that will be a fist to be raised when skeptics rises their voice against Homoeopathy.

Homeopaths have a bright future and we are the future so focus for future always.
