Temperament is defined as a characterisitic combination of mental, bodily and moral qualities which together constitute the character and disposition of an individual. This also predisposes him to act and behave in a particular manner.
Homoeopathy believes, “You are wonderfully made and there is only one YOU in the world.” Every human being is one different from the other. Each patient is different with respect to his sufferings, his previous diseases, his hereditary tendencies, his nature as a whole, his likes, dislikes, his reactions in various situations etc. We individualise each patient by taking a detailed case history. It is for this reason that two patients with apparently same disease may be treated with different remedies.
We consider temperaments during case taking and in prescribing. The classical temperaments are: sanguine, choleric, nervous, melancholic, phlegmatic. There is usually one basic predominating temperament but there are many combinations of temperaments as well.
Dr. Parinaz Humranwala, a worthy torch-bearer of Homeopathy, with her extensive research on Temperament is your guide throughout this webinar. You will learn to identify temperamental type of the patient while case taking and selecting the final remedy.
