Dr Vanessa K. D’Souza, BHMS, MD – (Nee Sequeira)

Normally people measure standard of living or life by one’s possessions. But there is another measurement – how many hearts one touched, the smiles one created and love one shared…..In the latter scale, our teachers, preachers especially those serving in medical fields probably ranked first, as these people are having opportunities in plenty and the scope is unlimited to wipe the tears of really the needy one….    !

In our small town Barkur, many Doctors served and serving and they naturally command high respect and gratitude. There are dozens of Barkur born doctors and Nurses serving all over the globe. If someone takes the trouble of making a directory of these professionals, we presume it will have names probably in hundreds…..If you enlarge your canvas to include, Barkurian linked people it will be still greater and one such name rightly Dr. Vanessa Kavita  DSouza, BHMS, MD -  a Consulting Homeopath, running her e Clinic in Bangalore.

In short, Homeopathy is a system of medical practice based on the attempt to ‘let like cure like’. According to Homeopathic Doctors, a substance that produces certain symptoms in a healthy individual will cure those symptoms in a sick individual. Some plants for example, cause rashes Homeopathic doctors thus treat rashes with these plants. Onions cause crying and watery discharge from the nose. Therefore, onions are used to treat cold.

Homeopathic remedies are discovered through a process called proving. In proving, various substances are administered to healthy people and their effects carefully observed. Homeopathic doctors give patients only one remedy at a time. They believe that using combinations of remedies interferes with the effectiveness of each particular remedy. Hence remedies are diluted so that the patient receives the minimum effective dose. This procedure is thought to maximise the benefit of the treatment. It also helps to prevent harmful side effects.
