Humans are the only animals who can think or atleast we think so. But we are the only Animals who think our body is like a man made machine. It is not, it is a system functioning independent of other systems yet dependent on each other collectively. A very intelligent intertwined system. We take things for granted and abuse our own body in so many ways. We are not realizing that if we break the continuity of structures it creates problems for smooth functioning of organisation.
You may have noticed that our system is self-sufficient, self-cleansing, each body function and parts have been built in certain perfect manner by the nature and with inbuilt default backups and checks. We have acid which is concentrated HCL to kill all germs entering the system which can potentially damage digestive system and our stomach is protected against acid damage intelligently.If you have some disorder or disease you cannot handle the same acid which causes heart burn and usually relieved by buffering.So, think over whatcould be essential now getting rid of acid which kills all bacteria entering your body or rectifying original problem which created this imbalance?
Surgery is lifesaving no doubt but have you noticed that our system will not be the same after that assault even though good intentioned? Can you put your child or yourself under scalpel before all doors of relief have closed; just because it is convenient and covered under insurance?
Fever is beneficial once in a while since it shows immunity is strong and our system warriors are giving a great fight. Again it shows our body needs rest since it's overstrained. So, do you think fever must be suppressed with strong medication? Should we go according to nature's verdict or must we run to office next morning?
Skin is a great absorbent as well as excretory organ. Toxins are thrown out of your body through sweating and through pores. You may have observed if you suppress sweating you will have fever immediately. Is it prudent to suppress sweat through deodorants and other strong chemicals? Is it good to apply those unknown Ad beautified creams on to your skin? You are eating those chemicals slowly through your skin, is it not?
These are only thought provoking points, to steer you away from fads and spurious knowledge spread by marketing gurus.Ask yourself what is on Advertisements is really true or only hype? It is their business to create a positive mind set towards their product even its tobacco or obviously injurious one. Take charge of your health,your families wellbeing do not hear to what others say make sense of things.Discover what is best for you by talking to people who are genuinely caring and knowledgeable ones.

This is a brief note about the priorities regarding Health issues of People whom I have seen in these fifteen years of my practice. On reading it you can very well take notice of your own priorities and seek needed help and guidance.
First category: They talk to each and every one about their issues. In fact they go to Public places or Functions to discuss about their troubles and how much they have spent on it so on and so forth.
They are not serious about treatment outcomes so as much towards getting treated. They are more to have that sympathy when people shower on hearing their difficulties.
Second Category: People who need quick fix for all sorts of Health issues whether it is tention Head ache or Cancer. They are always changing Doctors and Products .They will Ignore the fact that Headache is due to Sleeplessness and will pop a pill instead of trying to get a good night's sleep.
These are the ones who try all new products available in the market. These people will not realise the Facts so advice is not advisable.
Third Category :People who expect Miracles from Doctors especially Homoeopaths.
These people think Cure of theirtroubles is in Doctors hand and will not realise that everything has to take its own course. They will not be able to see that they have to help themselves to get the Cure.
Fourth Category :People who give Medicines given to them to others. Who are very proactive take 4 pills instead as advised by the doctor those who assume things.
This category is open to discussions and guidance. They can be educated.
I have mentioned these categories just to make people introspect about themselves. You may be of Fifth categorywho are willing to take Doctors advice who are having knowledge but not take steps on their own.
Homoeopathy will help all the categories according to their own ways, but if someone says Homoeopathy won't work first detect which category he belongs to before concluding Homoeopathy does not work.
This is a serious Allegation of distracters of Homoeopathy. But you have to understand that Homoeopathic Medicines are not crude and no way to wrap up a steroid in it. Moreover any substance when potentized loses its Original qualities and it cannot have any side effects as expected.
It is very slow acting, isn't it?
Actually all diseases are not of same variety. Acute diseases or Fevers, asthmatic episodes etc are to be taken care of immediately and Homoeopathy does that. Fever will subside overnight or in a couple of days according to a person's Immunity, cold cough take 2-5 days for cure, but Asthma or Knee pain may need few months for complete cure although relief sets within a few days.
They say it is very safe and no side effects, is that true?
Let us talk about word' Safe'. Yes it is absolutely safe for even unborn babies, pregnant women and in fact most recommended medicine for weaklings. But Side effects depend on few things. If you took from a Physician and stick to his orders then fine. If you take medicines on Internet gyan may become even injurious overtime. If you repeat doses just because the medicines remaining are wasted or for long periods of time without further consultation then you are inviting trouble.
Does Homoeopathy Cure all diseases ?
No, Homoeopathy never cures any disease on its own but induces one's own system to fight the disease that is it increases immunity of a person. So if a disease goes away the person has good immunity and got help. So the type of person's strength matters more than type of disease. Some common conditions may fail to respond at times but yes we can very well treat all kinds of diseases, since curability of that person can be ascertained only after treating him.
It cannot be taken along with Allopathic drugs ,they say is it true?
No, both can be taken with advantage for the patient but loss for Homoeopathy. Because Antibiotics nullify the effect of Homoeopathic remedies and treatment may have to be restructured. So, my advice to my Patients is Continue all your diabetic, hypertension, epilepsy even thyroid and sleeping pills unless it has been tapered by your respective Physician with caution. But do not start treatment with an allopath for Skin trouble, Respiratorytrouble, Fevers and other mild problems without consulting your Homoeopath.
Should I stop taking Coffee and Onions?
If you drink Coffee moderately it's okay. Food items should be avoided initially if you are reacting to them or if your Homoeopath specifically asks you to do that.
What about Lab tests and Diagnoses?
It is essential for the Homoeopath to treat you efficiently. But treatment is not completely dependent on the diagnosis alone. Individual case taking and personal details are more essential.
Can I take Iron tablets and Vitamin Pills along with this?
Yes It can be taken when recovering from a surgery or a major breakdown .But after say maximum of Three months or almost recovered state replace them with specific nutritious foods. Do not take Supplements instead of Nutritious Food.
Homoeopathy increases diseases before reducing it, Is it not?
No, unless strong doses given without proper considerations which any meticulous Homoeopath will avoid. Usually Homoeopathic treatment treatment is started with mild doses then ascertaining the nature of the person's sensitivity further treatment will be planned.
Homoeopathy is against Surgery they say is it true?
No, Homoeopathy is a Therapeutic, that is Medicine based treatment and is not against any adjuvant ,that is helping treatments like Physiotherapy, dietary corrections, lifestyle modifications , even Acupressure etc go well along with Homoeopathy. But before starting any other Modes clearance from your Homoeopath is needed. Regarding Surgery few can be avoided by Homoeopathic treatment alone like Piles or Tonsils operations but when a life threatening condition like Acute Appendicitis strikes Surgery along with Homoeopathic remedies to prevent complications to heal wound quickly is recommended .
