Role of Artificial Intelligence in Homeopathy
Role of Artificial intelligence in Homeopathy.
Homeopathy has existed for the benefit of mankind for centuries now. But still far behind Allopathy or so called ‘Modern Science’. If one tries to investigate deeper to find the ‘why?’ one comes to the following conclusions:
- There’s a serious lack of funding for research at the Health Industry level
- Lack of masters in the education system
- Lack of SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) in methodology of case taking and hence prescriptions
- Too many schools of thought that eventually confuse the primary stake holders: New doctors
- Lack of intelligent software tools that can actually help doctors prescribe better without the necessity of them being experienced or highly skilled like veteran Homeopaths.
- Lack of compilation of case studies
- Strong opposition from the allopathic or pharma lobby.
How could one possibly negate the above factors and take homeopathy to the pedestal it deserves in the world of medicine?
Then we thought of combining Artificial Intelligence Software Technology (AIST) with Homeopathy (Organon, Repertory, Materia Medica) and hence adding the missing 4th leg to the imbalanced 3 legged stool of this divine science.
But what is Artificial Intelligence and how could it possibly benefit Homeopaths?
Artificial intelligence (AI, also machine intelligence, MI) is intelligence displayed by machines, in contrast with the natural intelligence (NI) displayed by humans and other animals. In computer science AI research is defined as the study of “intelligent agents”: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving”.
Then we went a step ahead to apply AI to Homeopathic tools and we named our invention: eHeilung
eHeilung is the world’s first Homeopathic healing portal that provides credible evaluation, diagnoses, education, information, prescriptions and treatment, using next generation technology and the classical principles of Dr. Hahnemann.
Heilung means Healing in German. It was a German Physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who realised more than 250 years back, that the kind of medicine he was pursuing, allopathy, did less healing and more damage. That’s when he started researching and developing ‘Ein neues Prinzip der Heilung’, a new form of healing, that would be natural, gentle and effective by simply empowering the body to heal itself – Homeopathy.
Unfortunately, Homeopathy never got the recognition it deserved. It got pushed to the fringes by the medical industry very quickly because it was not a ‘quick-fix’, money spinner like allopathy. If you can cure something permanently like in Homeopathy, where is the profit? It did not make business sense like mainstream medicine that requires you to keep coming back for more. Things got worse, when unregulated and unqualified practitioners of Homeopathy ruined its reputation – any Tom, Dick and Harry thought they could read a book and prescribe the right remedies and that’s when Homeopathy got the repute of being just sugar pills.
Even qualified Homeopaths turned this economical treatment into businesses that are nothing more than chains of clinics that con patients by advertising ‘before’ and after ‘photos’.
eHeilung was created to change all this. It is a Homeopathic portal and software with one simple mission – to show the world how quickly, gently, permanently and cost-effective Homeopathy really is by making it easy for everyone to make accurate prescriptions that are effective in curing a range of health problems. It aims to set standards, democratise and make homeopathy accessible to all.
Many attempts were made by other practitioners to create a similar software but they end up being nothing more than an aggregation of several dated and flawed repertories that only works in the hands of most experienced doctors. One needs to have sound knowledge of philosophy and experience with clinical Materia Medica to make good prescriptions. They are not accessible, accurate or affordable for most.
It’s Rocket Science
eHeilung was created by more than an international team of over a 100 experts from diverse fields over a period of 7 years with a huge investment, thanks to its potential of being a social tool for the greater good. eHeilung is the most advanced scientific tool that make anyone prescribe accurately and effectively. Its inbuilt Intelligence guides a prescriber at every step. Right from bringing relevant patients to making great prescriptions to maintaining their EHR. It also analyses every follow up and does the mentoring every serious Homeopath needs.
Features like Case Checker allows every doctor to know where he is right or wrong in every case in minutes. Stress Calculator finds out the exact cause of every disease and gives it a mathematical score for the Doctor’s record. Disease Compass is a quick guide to asses any 2 symptoms that have appeared in the course of disease.
