Dr Vibha Mevada Sharma, a visionary homeopath trained under renowned experts, completed her BHMS in 2015 and pursued advanced courses in homeopathy. Her passion and expertise led to a prominent reputation within 5 years, treating numerous challenging cases. She is an esteemed author, speaker, and yoga instructor, dedicated to promoting homeopathy worldwide.

What is the best thing you enjoy about treating patients?

The most rewarding aspect of being a homeopath is treating patients as a whole, and addressing their physical and mental well-being. It brings immense joy when patients express happiness, improved relationships, and overall well-being. Homeopathy focuses on healing the soul and understanding the root causes rather than superficially treating symptoms. Making souls happy is my ultimate source of fulfilment.

When is a patient easy to treat? 

Treating a patient becomes easier when they choose homeopathy as their primary mode of treatment from the start and continue taking the prescribed remedies consistently. In such cases, where the disease hasn’t been complicated by the use of multiple medications, positive outcomes can be achieved relatively quickly. For instance, when treating conditions like Thyroid or PCOD, patients who approach me directly or soon after diagnosis, relying solely on homeopathy, can experience significant improvement within a few months.

When is a patient difficult to treat?

Treating patients can become challenging when they exhibit impatience, frequently switch doctors, skip medications, neglect dietary and exercise instructions, or prematurely discontinue treatment when they start feeling better. Another difficulty arises from patients self-medicating during our prescribed treatment. I recall a case involving a 54-year-old diabetic woman with a non-healing wound. Despite administering carefully selected medicines, her sugar levels remained high. After an extended period, I discovered that she consumed sweets regularly. Implementing a strict diet led to rapid and favourable outcomes in her case.

How helpful is it to the treatment course, if the patient is knowledgeable about the treatment procedure, benefits, risks etc.?

Patient knowledge can have both positive and negative effects on treatment outcomes. In some cases, it is beneficial as patients readily understand explanations without much doubt. However, if patients possess incorrect information about their disease or homeopathic treatment, it can lead them in the wrong direction. However, there are instances when patient knowledge, particularly about the names of prescribed homeopathic medicines, can pose challenges. The information they find on the internet may not align accurately with their symptoms or the specific disease. It’s crucial to emphasise that homeopathic medicine selection depends on various factors, including emotions, experiences, family history, past medical history, sleep patterns, dreams, desires, aversions, body language, and the homeopath’s observations. These factors are often unknown to patients, leading to misunderstandings and discrepancies between their expectations and the prescribed medicine.

How can a patient improve their knowledge about the treatment procedure?

It is important for patients to avoid randomly searching online videos to gather information about their disease or treatment. Online platforms may not always provide accurate or suitable information for their specific condition or disease severity. Homeopathic medicine suggestions in videos are merely examples to demonstrate that the system offers treatment options, but they should not be considered personalised prescriptions. If patients genuinely wish to enhance their knowledge, it is advisable to refer to peer-reviewed journals, authorized research papers, or trusted sources personally known to them.

How does medical misinformation act as a problem in the overall treatment procedure?

In my experience, it is often easier to explain to a patient their condition than to undo the misinformation they have already acquired, which can sometimes be deeply ingrained. It requires a significant amount of energy and effort to help them understand the facts about their condition, and even then, it is not always successful. I vividly remember a patient I treated three years ago. She was 36 years old and suffering from OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). After three months of treatment, when she had achieved nearly 40% improvement, someone advised her to start modern medicine, claiming that her condition was severe and incurable. Unfortunately, she researched OCD’s advanced stages on the internet, and, due to misinformation, we lost a promising case. This incident highlights the detrimental impact misinformation can have on patient outcomes.

A few pieces of advice that you always give to your patients 

Three very important points I always advise to all my patients – improve routine by taking six-seven hours of night sleep, allow yourself fast food or outside food once a week only, and push yourselves for exercises at least five days a week.
