There is a general belief that Homoeopathy is a slow acting system is it true Doctor?

No it is not true. The curative action is fast only if it suits well with disease symptoms. If the symptoms correspond, it is very fast. In modern the prescription of a medicine is very easy since the treatment is symptomatic. They prescribe the dose in material doses like 5gms, 10gms to keep the dosage at a constant level.So the symptoms are suppressed and the patient feels an instant relief! In Homoeopathy we administer the similimum in dynamic doses, which helps the sick to come back to healthy condition early in the faster manner. The chronic and old disease such as psoriasis take a long time to treat hence homoeopathy has been labeled as slow acting.

Do you recommend scan test and blood investigations for your patient`s doctor?

Yes, definitely! Investigations are absolutely necessary to diagnose a disease. Even though we don't give much importance to the common disease symptoms we require to know the prognosis of a disease. Diagnosis is common to all systems of medicine. Some homoeopaths do not rely on investigations; they simply observe the symptomatology alone. But it is dangerous, for instance, a patient suffering from hypertension. It would be an incidental finding for everybody while having an routine checkup. The primary investigation is the study of cholesterol. The patient may or may not have symptoms. But it is absolutely necessary for all primary investigations.

Simply prescribing a drug without basis will make crisis. Scientifically investigations are needed to know the prognosis of the disease and the cure.

While taking Homoeopathic medicines if I happened to take Allopathic medicines for any sudden pain or emergency. Will anything go wrong with my body?

No harmful effects have been noticed in my sixteen years practice. There is no good evidence that Allopathic drugs interfere with homoeopathic medicines. In almost every case, it is always undesirable to stop conventional treatment without the approval of the physician concerned. Sometimes patients healing power requires some time for stimulation until then you have to continue the drug and gradually you can drop the allopathic drugs. There are no dangerous interactions between homoeopathic medicines and modern drugs; because the allopathic medicines are in material quantity where as homoeopathic medicines are in diluted and dynamic doses.

There could not be a chemical reaction even if the patient happened to take the medicines simultaneously such as in diabetes and hypertension.

What is the difference between Homoeopathy, Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani?

Every system is different from each other. Siddha, Ayurveda and Unani medicines are Indian systems of medicine. Homoeopathy is German system. A German Allopathic Physician, Dr.Samuel Hahnemann discovered it. Now being practiced all over the world. Mostly in United states, England Swiss, France, Italy, Malaysia, Australia and in many other countries. Indian systems of medicines are of traditional system like acupuncture in China. Siddha system was discovered by the Siddhars of Tamilnadu. Ayurveda had its roots from Samaskrutham and the Unani from Arabic. We do not have any kind of relationship with them. But every system has its own merits.

Do you advice diet to all diseases?

Yes definitely! Diets are the obstacle for recovery of a disease. They are the maintaining causes for a disease. A person suffering from Kidney stones has to avoid greens and tomato. The oxalates are very rich and would combine with calcium. Diet is important to avoid the risk factors on formation of the stones. We advise the patients to avoid the foodstuffs until they get recovered. Then relaxation is allowed as their metabolism gets regulated.

While taking Homoeopathic medicines can I take tea or coffee?

There is a general belief that coffee and tea should be avoided, but there is no good evidence that these substances really interfere with cure. Clinically I had observed nothing interferes the cure as such. Our medicines get absorbed partially form the nerve endings of the tongue, through inhalation and from stomach. It would be better to administer on clean tongue. So we request the patients to avoid coffee, tea or any thing 10 minutes before and after taking the potency medicines.

" Public opinion on Homoeopathy increase the disease first then heals it ``. Is it true Doctor ?

This statement is not applicable for all diseases. This can be observed only in suppression. Mostly it is observed only in Allergic conditions such as Eczema and sometimes in Asthma. If the patient has aggravation the cure is definite and fast.Naturally it eliminates the toxic reactions and pours it outside. Gradually the toxic influence will go away from the body and a permanent cure can be assured. This unnecessary aggravation can be avoided by suitable selection of a remedy. I clinically observed that the diseases with metabolic and pathological lesions never aggravated. This can be proved by laboratory findings.

For example a patient suffering from a uterine tumour or a patient suffering from hypothyroidism will not aggravate in these conditions. It can be proved with appropriate investigations. The acute diseases like fever, headache and colic are also applicable.

"There are some rumors that alternative systems of medicines mix some steroid preparation with their medicine ". Is it correct?

No it is impossible with Homoeopathy! Because the medicines are sweet, dispensed in small globules. Sometimes the physician may mix with sugar of milk, which is prepared from milk, which is also sweet. So the steroid cannot be dispensed with Homoeopathy medicines. If anything goes wrong anybody can easily find out and get it tested. Second thing is that a Steroid cannot be claimed a medicine for universal disease.There are plenty of diseases proved clinically in this site, to prove the efficacy of the Homoeopathy. Medical profession is a noble profession in which everybody should be honest and loyal to there profession. As wrong things always go wrong.

I happened to hear at many occasions that all diseases could be cured without surgery? Do they really help during acute crisis?

No, We are not against surgery. In acute crisis modern medicine is the best choice. In our medical curriculum we are not trained to identify and classify the cases which appears to be in need of surgery. But the milestone laid by the modern medicine is instant, but ours is delayed! Many of the disease labeled for surgery can very well be cured by Homoeopathic remedies, eg., Polycystic ovaries, Chocolate cysts of the ovaries, Fibroids of the uterus, Cysts in various other organs of the body, Chronic Tonsillitis, Sinusitis, Sub acute appendicitis, Renal calculi, Cholelithiasis etc. At the same time we advise surgery for the patients for whom surgery can only be helpful eg., Accidents, Perforated peptic ulcer, Respiratory obstruction which need Tracheaostomy, Acute Appendicitis, Torsion , Strangulated Hernia etc.

Why injections and capsules are not introduced in homoeopathy?

Injections are necessary to obtain instant action. Capsules are needed to administer a medicine with bitter taste. Homoeopathy medicines are always sweet. Dynamic medicines do not require such medication as the injections or the capsules. In Homoeopathy we do not rely on quantity of the doses such as 5gm, 10 gm and so. The medicines are in most diluted forms and are available in the dilutions. The inert activity of the particular medicine is within the molecules of the dilutions. We medicated this as the sweet globules and prescribe to the patients. This is the reason why the medicines look same for every disease.

Many of my patients put a query " Doctor, Are you giving the same medicine for long time? Does it not need any change? Did you give the same medicine for my son also?
