Essence of Electro-Homeopathy

Electro-Homeopathy or Electro-Homoeopathy or Electro Homeopathy is an alternative system of medicine founded by an Italian named Count Cesar Mattei in the nineteenth century. The term “Electro-Homeopathy” is derived from “Electro” + “Homeopathy”. The term “Electro-Homeopathy” has been used by Count Cesar Mattei to describe his complementary system of medicine because his system of therapeutics is based on the Homeopathic system of medicine and makes use of the active principles of medicinal plants described as “Vegetable Electricity” by him. Electro Homeopathy is also called Electropathy.

Advocators of Electro-Homeopathic medicine have described it as a new medical system. Count Cesar Mattei called his remedies Electro-Homeopathic on account of their instant and efficacious action just like the action of the electricity. He described Electro Homeopathy as an extension and simplification of Homeopathy developed by the great Samuel Hahnemann. He used the term “Perfected Homoeopathy” for Electro-Homeopathy and called his Electro Homeopathic materia medica as the consummation of the Homeopathic materia medica.

According to Mattei, any abnormal change in the blood or lymph or both of these vital fluids leads to the diseased states of the human body. Count Mattei recognized four main types of constitutions or temperaments as important in the selection of the Electropathic remedies, viz., – Sanguine temperament, Bilious temperament, Lymphatic temperament, and Nervous temperament.

The Electro Homeopathic system of medicine employs combination of various medicinal plants in the preparation of a single remedy. Thus, the remedies are called complex remedies. Count Mattei believed that complex remedies are more effective than simpler ones employed by Homeopathy because of their wider range of actions. Spagyric methods of preparation of essences from medicinal plants are deployed by Electro Homeopathic pharmacies.

There are many differences between Electro Homeopathy and Homeopathy. Some of the notable differences are described here -

  • In the preparation of the Electro Homeopathic remedies, only the medicinal plants are employed. The Homeopathic system of medicine employs metals, minerals, animal products, morbid products, and plants in the preparation of remedies.
  • Electro-Homeopathy makes use of the complex remedies as described above. In the case of the classical Homeopathic practice, the use of the single remedy is permitted at a time by its founder Samuel Hahnemann.

    Porifera – The Biology of Sponges

    This article reveals the Biology of Sponges (phylum Porifera) by studying the Morphology, Anatomy, Histology, and Physiology of Sponges. The author has also included the Reproduction and Development of Sponges.

    Porifera is a phylum comprising of the multi-cellular invertebrate animals called Sponges. The term “Porifera” literally means “Pore Bearers”. The animals of this phylum have tiny pores in their body walls, and this characteristic feature is the basis of the name of this phylum.

    Porifera includes very primitive multi-cellular animals having only the cellular level of body organization with no tissues and organs. In Porifera (sponges), only cells show division of labor for the purpose of performing specialized functions. All Poriferans, animals of the phylum Porifera, are aquatic with most of them being marine. Sponges are sessile (not mobile) organisms including both solitary and colony-forming types.

      Perl As Programming Language of Choice for Biologists!!

      Perl as Programming Language of Choice for Biologists!!

      Why Biologists (Bioinformaticians or Bioinformaticists, if the scientific jargon is to be preferred) Prefer Perl?

      I am a bioinformaticist, and love Perl over all other computer languages when it comes to programming in biology. This is not only my case, majority of the biologists prefer Perl for their bioinformatics’ tasks. Perl can be given the status of being the mainstay programming language in the field of Bioinformatics or Computational Biology. There must be some reasons why this is the case; actually there are some very strong points that favor the use of Perl in biology over the other lot of available programming languages. But, to be honest, at times, other computer programming languages can be of more benefit than Perl, at least for a specific task. If you are not acquainted with Perl, click here for, what the heck is Perl? In this article, I will explain why it is justified to consider Perl as programming language of choice for biologists, and for the sake of information, I would like to tell that even the non-biologists too prefer it much!
