The Sensation in Homeopathy by RAJAN SANKARAN
This book describes, using numerous case examples, the concept and use of Rajan Sankaran’s “sensation method.” ‘The Seven Levels of Experience’ which enables a homeopath to know at all times, in anygiven case, where to begin and where to aim. In this way of working, a definitive pathway for case taking is provided, a means by which to observe and utilize the active energy patterns of the patient (hand gestures and body movements), plus a way of matching the patient’slevel to the remedy potency that is required.
Another key component of this system has to do with becoming attuned to the patient’s sensations. There is a certain energy inprecise sensation(s) having to do with both the chief complaint andthe general state of the patient, which has enormous significance. Dr. Sankaran has termed these as the vital sensations. Vital sensationsare not merely physical symptoms or emotions, but rather thecommon sensations that connect the mind and the body. Indeed thevital level is deeper than the mind or the body; it is at the center point of the diseased state. These are non-human specific phenomena i.e.not exclusive to the domain of only human beings and thus take usdirectly to the source of the remedy itself.
Dr. Sankaran’s system incorporates miasm and kingdom classification (plant, animal, mineral, nosode etc.) as well as the ‘Levels’ into onecomprehensive, sophisticated, yet elegantly simple way of perceiving the patient. It is a quantum leap in the understanding of disease andhas resulted in remarkably increased level of success and the use ofnumerous remedies, including some not well proved ones and yetothers previously not even known. In many other cases one has beenable to use old remedies in an entirely new light, with a deeper understanding.
