Michel Bouko Levy, MD

Description

A practical guide to Homeopathy and Homeopathic Drainage:

There is a long tradition of homeopaths using low potencies of select homeopathic medicines to help detoxify and “drain” specific organs. This book was the most popular on the subject for many years, but was unavailable for a long time, and it has finally been re-published.

information on the history of drainage is described at the BOTTOM of this page.

This book explains why drainage is important. In his book, Michel Bucko Levy explains the drainage techniques through the line of life and the wheel of emunctories (eliminations). If you ask Michel why to do drainage, he will tell you in a simple way: “in order to support the action of a central remedy and avoid aggravations.”

What is very different in this book is the fact that Michel has included the use of companion remedies (to work in correlation with the main remedy) satellite remedies(secondary remedy to address specific symptoms) and tissue salts in 3 nervous regulators (3 polychrests used as nervous regulators) and 14 central remedies (14 prominent polychrests).

He also included a list of protocols that include treatment of specific conditions with homeopathy, gemmotherapy, trace elements, tissue salts, organotherapy and isopathy, and botanicals.

The layout of the book is very “user friendly,” which means that it was designed in a way that will allow doctors to find the information they need at a glance. If you look at the list of indexes, you will see that doctors will have several ways to find the information they need. There is no other book that has such a complete and comprehensive list of indexes on drainage remedies.

There are a lot of graphics to illustrate basic and complex concepts.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR, MICHEL BOUKO LEVY, MD

A graduate from the Faculty of Medicine of Marseille, France,1974, and of the French National Institute of Homeopathy in 1983, Dr. Bouko Levy practiced family medicine and hospital emergency care in Edmonston, N.B., Canada, for several years before establishing a private practice in the South of France.

Dr. Bouko Levy obtained the National Diploma of Homeopathic Physician from the Centre Homéopathique de France, l’Ecole d’Homéopathie de l’Hopital Saint Jacques and l’Institut National Homéopathique Français in 1984.

He studied and practiced classical homeopathy before incorporating homeopathic drainage into his patients’ treatment. While doing so, he developed a new understanding and method of application of homeopathic drainage that he shared generously through lectures around the world.

His expertise as a Homeopathic Physician includes eight years at the Hopital Ambroise Paré as Assistant Homeopathic Pediatrician, and three years as Homeopathic Consultant in the Haemodialysis department of the Hopital de la Conception.

He taught homeopathy at the Faculty of Medicine of Marseille, France and at the Asociacion Medical Espanola de Homeopatia y Biotherapia in Spain. He also taught a two year course on Homeopathy and Biotherapeutic Drainage Therapies (he later renamed Biotherapeutic Drainage Therapies as Homeopathic Drainage) for the Homeopathic Medicine Association of Canada from 1991 to 1993. He is the founder and faculty member of the Israel Institute of Homeopathy and of the Institut d’Homéopathie de Provence.

He published his first book, “Everyday Homeopathy” in 1989, and a complete “Homeopathy and Drainage Repertory” in 1993, the first homeopathic repertory to include Homeopathic Drainage.

Through his work, teaching and brilliant synthesis of homeopathy and functional medicine, Dr. Bouko Levy rapidly acquired a reputation as a leader in the field of homeopathy and homeopathic drainage.

It is of no surprise that he became a successful international lecturer. He teaches with passion, enthusiasm and clarity. Dr. Bouko Levy epitomizes the word “art” in Medical Art. He refined his approach with as much instinct as he did with medical science. He is a gifted doctor whose love for his patients and vision for the practice of medicine only has for equal his talent for sharing his knowledge, and his strong desire to be as best a doctor as he can be.

 

Drainage According to Hippocrates, Paracelsus and Hahnemann

Elimination through natural paths
In his aphorisms, Hippocrates speaks very clearly about drainage: “When nature tries to find an exit, the doctor must help it at the site shown – because nature is a better doctor than man, it knows better than him where it is useful to have an exit. – What belongs to perspiration must be eliminated by perspiration; stools by stools; urine by urine.”

He gives good instructions for detoxification for optimum health. Some doctors want to cure all with activation of the eliminations, but we must not be general. The doctor must see where nature wants to operate the drainage of detrimental substances, because “nature is the greatest doctor, man comes after.”

“The secretions to evacuate must be particularly directed to the sites where they tend and by the correct ways. The eliminations must be considered not only according to their quantity, but essentially according to their quality; they must be normal and regular.”

Elimination according to the patient energy level
“The doctor must take care that eliminations are easily supported. If what must be evacuated is indeed evacuated, this is useful and is easily supported ; but it is supported with difficulty if it is the contrary. When it is necessary to support them until failure, it is necessary to first examine if the forces of the patient can be sufficient.”

He advises to be careful: “It is rarely necessary to drain during acute diseases, even at the beginning, and has only to be done after having established a complete strategy.”

Elimination of toxins with satellite remedies
Paracelsus based chronic treatment on both organ and its specific elimination channels : “If nature gives you a sign, you must know what it is related to, help toxins get out. If you find a pain at a certain site, you must know that nature wants an emunctory at this place. If the emunctory does not exist naturally, make one because nature wants to have it there.”

“Why this patient cannot heal in spite of all the drainage given ? Because the correct remedy of channeling toxins (draining) has not been used.” Paracelsus used the central remedy at the same time as the channeling remedy. For instance : Aurum with Melissa, for heart disease ; Aurum with Chelidonium, for liver disease.

Centrifugal energy
Hahnemann insisted on the importance of the suppression of skin diseases and mucous secretions, and in the evolution of chronic diseases. By re-establishing these emunctories and opening new emunctories, he shows the ways to cure chronic diseases. Any psoric remedy contains an important power of elimination of toxins, by skin, mucosa, kidneys, etc. That is why all the psoric remedies are excellent remedies for draining toxins.
However, Hahnemann has observed that, in certain cases, the drainage action was too strong and he used antidotes to counteract it. If the reactions were not too violent, he insisted not to interfere.

“Any treatment of chronic disease is useless if we do not calm the excess of sensitivity and irritability which put an obstacle to the good action of psoric remedies.”

 

Homeopathic Drainage: Dr. Nebel, Vannier, Rouy and Fortier-Bernoville

During the twentieth century, drainage was updated with the constitution and reactive mode approach, medical discoveries about toxic agents, oxidative stress, and general tissue pollution. It is the therapeutic field of phytotherapy, gemmotherapy, and homeopathic low potencies. Drainage acts on emunctories tissue and cells, with two layers of emunctories :

Central emunctories : liver, pancreas, kidney, colon, gallbladder, spleen, bladder.
Satellite emunctories are needed when high toxic levels cause dysfunction of the major emunctories : skin, lung, nose mucosa, hemorrhoid plexus, joint synovia.

Homeopathic drainage generates two actions, support and revitalization, which acts upon cell and tissue invasion by toxins :

Support : avoid aggravation which occurs at the beginning of a treatment,
Revitalization : allows a better response from the body, especially when the patient shows little improvement.

Aggravation is like a kick in an ant hill. An organ dystonia cannot be resolved without aiming at regulating its functions to be in harmonic resonance with the rest of the body. A typical example is duodenum overload in adult. Sulfur or Phosphorus is most often required, but repeated high potencies are a guarantee for aggravation. Start with satellites, nux vomica, chelidonium, china.

Weakness of action is another aspect of toxicity, when the organ is too toxic and slowed down to get in harmony with rest of body. Old constipation, recurrent and long lasting infection need drainage of sycotic mode and related organs.

To be effective, drainage must act at two levels : specific action, elective on a tissue, and elimination action from this tissue until complete elimination from the body. Homeopathic drainage considers a clinical reality that an inflammation might be destined to prevent another. Peripheral inflammation protects from central attack. From center to periphery is the natural way of healing. Homeopathic drainage based on tissue similitude or affinity, plant, mineral, animal, organ, reintegrates the natural exterior environment of Man to its inner environment.

This book also teaches readers how to use gemmotherapy (the use of the BUDS and the EMERGING BUDS of a plant…because these flowers and emerging flowers are thought to have some of the most powerful healing agents in them!). Here are some of the gemmotherapeutic agents discussed in the book:

Gemmotherapy is a powerful tool for homeopathic drainage. The most common plants used are:
• ACER CAMPESTRIS BUDS 1DH (Mapple)
• HIPPOCASTANUM BUDS 1DH (Horse chestnut)
• ALNUS GLUTINOSA BUDS 1DH (Aider)

BOOK REVIEW!

If only all allopaths reasoned in the way that Dr. Michel Bouko Levy did. In his first medical clinic, after graduating from the Faculty of Medicine in Marseille in the 1970’s, he came across a case for which he had prescribed appropriately, and yet the patient’s disease moved from bad sinusitis, to stomach pains, to terrible headaches and severe cystitis. He said: “I wanted to understand why the patient developed such a sequence of symptoms, and how I could help. I bought my first book on homoeopathy.”

The French understand drainage remedies and organotherapy better than any other nation using homoeopathy. Indeed, Kate Birch’s book, also reviewed in this edition, is based on the work of Dr. Mauritius Fortier Bernoville, who is also mentioned, along with Vannier, in Levy’s Bibliography.

This is a gem of a book, filled with very useful and connected information on every page. Dr. Bouko Levy said it is the book he should have liked to have in his clinic when he began in practice, and I agree. Somehow I have managed in
practice for 30 years without every hearing about Emunctories – you will find them in this book, along with Schüssler Salts (and a neat diagram that links each salt to a sign of the zodiac), Phytogemmotherapy (with a very clear diagram showing how these remedies are made), Organotherapy and Oligotherapy.

There is materia medica of fourteen central remedies, and common satellite remedies, which are prescribed for affected organs and their function. As an example, an ‘association’ of three remedies, in equal parts, for chronic pelvic inflammation in women might be: Aletris farinosa 1DH, Helonias 3DH and Hydrastis 3DH. [DH = Hahnemann Decimal].

I knew nothing of Oligotherapy and its language (Allergic equates to Psoric; Hyspotenic to Depressed Tuberculinic; Dystonic to Luetic or Excited Tuberculinic; Anergic to Sycotic , Old Psoric; and Auto-poisoning to Cancerous, Sycotic) and its use of trace elements for treatment.

There is information that can easily be applied in daily practice. It is not particularly for Sensation practitioners, but for those who want to use hands-on, low potency methods (the French seldom use above a 30c potency), connecting emotional and mental states with physicals and drainage, support and nutritional remedies. A strong contender for a naturopath’s library.

It is paperback; has full contents pages, and many useful indices – general; modalities (fabulous); mind; neuroendocrine; anatomic; drainage; remedies; and trace elements. This makes it easy to navigate. I’ve marked all the useful illustrations with post-it notes for quick reference (new moon aggravation: Croc., Kali-br., Natrum-carb., Plat., Puls., Sil. – and all the other moon phases are covered too.)

If you have patients whose organs are ravaged by chronic disease, this book enables you to help those patients support, clean and drain their systems, and rebuild their vitality using low potency homoeopathics; gemmotherapy medicines made from buds – [see also Dr. Joe Rozenkwaig’s Gemmotherapy, if this interests you], and trace elements [ref. also the work of Jon Gamble]. I have found these therapies and know-how infinitely useful in practice over many years, and am pleased to add Dr. Bouko Levy’s book, already well-thumbed, to my bookshelf.
