CAIE8 is learning about 20th Century Medicine as a part of their Social Studies syllabus. CPS
Global Thirumazhisai has always encouraged our students to expand their horizons. In order
to support this field of study in medicine, a guest lecture with two eminent doctors- Dr
Palaniammal and Dr Jagadeeswari proficient in the fields of Homeopathy and Ayurveda
respectively was arranged for the students of CAIE 6, 7 and 8. Dr Palaniammal explained in
detail about the origin of Homeopathy and the way it works. She emphasized the importance
of a life style change along with intake of zero side effect homeopathy medicine. She also
explained how homeopathy is safe because it is customized for individual needs rather than
being available readymade like allopathy medicine. Dr Jagadeeswari explained the nuances
of Ayurveda. She spoke about the Tridosha Principle of Ayurveda the relation between the
five elements and the energies- Kapha, Pitta, Vata. She took the students through the
Ashtawidha Parekha and Rogiparreksha which are basically the steps involved in examining
a patient. With the help of an informative presentation Dr Jagadeeswari outlined the daily
regime to maintain our health using the Ayurveda clock. This presentation was followed by a
question-and-answer session with the students. The doctors cleared the doubts of the students
which ranged from the placebo effect to how these alternative medicines are effective against
COVID 19. One of the best ways to learn is to observe other people’s experience and we feel
happy to have had the opportunity to introduce our middle school students to the experience
of these two professionals on Alternative Medicine.
