Does one have to take the medicines for a long time?
No. The duration of the treatment depends upon the nature of the disease and the fighting capacity of the patient”s body. The treatment is required for a certain time period so as to improve the resistance of the body to fight diseases. Taking into consideration all these factors the treatment is continued for a certain time frame for the benefit of the patient. Once the patient starts improving we stop the medicines and the natural immunity and control mechanism of the body will take care of the rest of the problems.
Does homeopathy take a long time to act?
No Rather Homeopathy works faster than any other medicines. Patients who have experinced the Homoeopathic cure will surely agree to this. Let me put it this way, if a person is suffering from bronchitis since 2 years and day by day his condition is getting worse, doses are incresing. But once he is on homoeopathic treatment, he starts feeling improveemnt from the very first day of treatment and he is completely out of bronchitis within 6 months. So which cure is faster?
Why detailed history?
In homoeopathy there are not diffrent medicines for different name of the disease, a homeopath need to choose only one medicine out of 3000 medicines. This single medicine will take care of his each and every physical complaints and also imrpoves his immunity to a greater level. So here to individulise the case,a doctor needs to understand each and every aspect of the case ( Physical complaints, Past history, Family history of disease, psychological journey, etc..) That is why whenver patient comes for the first time to the doctor for his long lasting diseases ( Chornic disease ), detail case history shouls be taken for better results.
If I am suffering from acute severe pain, how am I going to wait for one hour to give detail history?
No, you dont need to give detail history in acute condition like cold, headache, cough, gastric discomfort, diarrhoea, vomitting, etc.. The complaints which have recent development do not need detailed history.
What will the homeopath need to know?
The homeopath needs to know every minutest detail about you which characterizes you, something which is unusual about you, so that he can find the right remedy for you. Homeopath needs to understand you, your nature, your complaints and your disturbed mental and emotional state in order to reach to the core of your case. Any peculiar habit that you have, your past medical history, about your childhood details, any thing and every thing about you will help the physician to help you. So if you give an honest and correct history to the physician, he can assess your case accurately. Anything that you confide in your physician will be strictly confidential and helpful.
Do homeopathic medicines have steroids?
No. It is a misconception that has been developing in the recent times. In many cases after seeing the improvement in a very short time people think that homeopaths give steroids.A homoepath works really hard to give such kind of results. He has to search for best suited medicine for the case so as to give wonderful results. All Homoeopathic medicines are prepared by using scientific predefined methods of extracting the medicinal properties from source substances. There is no scope or need to adulterate the derived medicines with any other substances, as this would completely obliterate the curative properties of the same. The prescription of homoeopathic medicines is based on the similarity of the symptoms of the patient with those produced by the drug (in its purest form) when proved (clinical trials) in healthy individuals. So any addition to the original medicine would completely alter its medicinal properties and hence alter it non-curative. Also if steroid is added the medicines will taste bitter. If the patient has any doubts he should check the medicines from a standard laboratory before consuming any quantity.
Why do homeopaths do not tell the name of the medicines that has been given?
The name of the medicine is not disclosed for the benefit of the patient. If the patient after knowing the name of the medicines starts taking it according to his or her whims and fancies; it will distort the disease picture and in the future treatment of the patient will be much more difficult. Also certain medicines have to be changed and given as per the state of the disease and recovery. Also medicine used for the treatment by a doctor are purchased from authenic pharmaceutical companies.
Are there any food restrictions during the treatment?
No I dont advise any restriction of food for my patients. If I can choose the best medicine for a case then it should work in each and every circumstances.

It should be tapered gradually once the patient is improving but this should be done in consultation with the treating physician. In some cases where the other medicine cannot be discontinued, both the medicines have to be continued for the benefit of the patient. The treatment should be planned and properly implemented.
