What is Indisposition? Acute vs Chronic

Indisposition is a slight feeling of uneasiness of a very transition nature; it is also known as mimicking sickness or slight alteration of health. Indisposition should not be considered as a disease because it is just the presence of a few rival symptoms, which would be removed by a slight alteration in the diet and regime without any serious medical aid.

Sometimes, indisposition is due to some exciting or maintaining cause. It can be eradicated by the removal of these causes.

What is Indisposition?   Acute vs Chronic

On the contrary, the diseases which are due to miasms, cannot be cure unless dynamic medicines are administered. in cases of indisposition, the vital force is not affected or derange. So the self-protecting the quality of the vital force can eradicate it without the help of any medicine.

This shows that the indisposition is a superficial alteration whereas in diseased the vital force is primarily disarranged, so health cannot be restored without medical help.

Let’s understand indispositions with the help of an example:

A person works under the sun for a long time which he is not habituated, then he may be suffered from a headache. In this case, is no medicine is required but after sleep and rest, the headache must be removed naturally i.e. by the vital force. In this way, the normal state of an individual can be brought back without any medicinal help. But if the headache continues and fever, vomiting, diarrhea, great thirst, etc. symptoms accompanied it, then it should be considered seriously because the patient may be suffering from acute sunstroke, he might require medical aid.

In such cases, without medical aid, the individual’s life may be in danger so it art of the physicians to differentiate between indisposition and disease condition and to treat accordingly with prompt attention.
