Like wise he discussed about various prophylactics used in homoeopathy.
After Dr Kochhar Dr Sayeed Tanvir came up with his topic Body Language And its Utility in Homoeopathy. Regarding his topic he said Body language is a term for communication using body movements or gestures instead of, or in addition to, sounds, verbal language or other communication. He said it includes how we greet others, how we sit or stand, our facial expressions, our clothes, hair styles, tone of voice, eye movements etc. he further said that being a Homoeopathic physician we should be knowing the art of reading the silence of the patient, because from the statistics it is clear that our patient gives only 7% of his totality of his symptoms by narrating verbally and 38% by the accent of his language (tone of the voice) and the remaining 55% of his totality can be perceived by the physician only by noticing his appearance, body postures, gestures, facial expressions, eye contacts etc.
He said Body language is especially important in some special types of cases where the patient is not able to explain his complaints clearly or when there is lack of symptoms in the patients. Every physician comes across these types of cases in his clinics. In these cases one should note the following things in the patient.
1. Personal appearance of the patient.
2. Postures of the patient.
3. Gestures of the patient.
4. Facial expressions.
5. Eye contact.
6. Modulations in voice and
7. The use of space and distancing.
He said without understanding the Body language one cannot become a good Homoeopath, as he cannot take the complete history of the patientís symptoms and ultimately on the basis of this partial case taking he will prescribe a partial similimum and not the right similimum. And after prescribing right medicine to the patient we can cure him according to the Homoeopathic Principals, which is the high and only mission of the physician.
