An earlier retrospective study of 100 Multiple Sclerosis (MS) cases showed the investigators that 80% of them had acute infections (treated repeatedly with antibiotics) before the onset of MS and that once the MS was diagnosed they seldom had any acute diseases. Another interventional study by S Kivellos, S Skifti and G Vithoulkas, on 120 migraine patients showed that 62% of the patients who improved considerably in the migraine through individualised homeopathy exhibited return of acute infections or past suppressed diseases. These studies indicate that there exists a connection between the body’s inability to raise acute inflammation and the chronic inflammatory state. This idea as promulgated in ‘The Levels of Health Theory’ and ‘ A Unified Theory of Continuum of Diseases’, if true, it indicates a necessary change in the manner of addressing acute infections and fevers in the population.
To investigate if there is a correlation between the acute and chronic inflammatory states.
Neurological/musculoskeletal and psychiatric cases, resulting in limitation in movement and normal sociocultural life, being treated with individualised classical homeopathy, showing significant improvement in their chronic pathology were investigated to see if acute inflammations or past suppressed diseases developed as the chronic states improved.
The retrospective graphical analysis of 21 cases, truly improving, exhibit a specific pattern - as the chronic complaint improves the past acute inflammations, fevers and old suppressed simpler inflammatory states start re-appearing and increasing in frequency and that after these acute episodes (treated homeopathically) the improvement in the main complaint is even more apparent. In cases where the re-appearing acute inflammatory disease was treated with conventional drugs, the chronic complaint relapsed .
Chronic neurological/musculoskeletal/psychiatric pathologies improving under individualised classical homeopathic therapy exhibited development of acute diseases and return of suppressed simpler pathologies (e.g., skin eruptions) as the chronic disease improved. This may indicate an immunological shift from low grade chronic inflammation to efficient acute inflammation in the organism. Further studies may establish the connection between handling of the acute diseases with drugs and its role in development of chronic sub-inflammatory states.
