dear sir, i want to know about doses in homeopathy. i have been advised to take china -30 take 3 times a day. i would like to know how many drops should i take each time and the quantity of water in which the drops should be dissolved and how much time interval should be there between the two different remedies.

     You can take 3 to 5 drops of the medicine in 2 teaspoons of water. If you are taking two different remedies, it is advisable to keep to a gap of at least 15 minutes between the two. However, homeopaths who advocate polypharmacy don't mind their patients mixing the remedies and taking them simultaneously. Thank you.

I can answer any question related to homeopathy and medicine in general. I can give information on Yoga and meditation, and some tips on naturopathy too. Being well aware of the scope and limitations about the various schools of medicine, I can guide the patients as to which therapeutic protocol would be ideal for them and I can also brief them about the probable diagnosis and prognosis for a particular case. Patients do not know that ancillary and auxiliary modes of treatment such as diet, regimen, and other non-medicinal procedures are vital in the long term treatment and prophylaxis of a particular disease. These details can also be provided to them by me.


I have ten years experience in the field. Having worked with two of the oldest homeopathic pharmacies in India as their Homeopathic Consultant, I have successfully treated thousands of patients to date.

I was a Homeopathic Consultant for the Banaji Homeopathic pharmacy and the Zoroastrian Homeopathic Pharmacy Annexe


I have a Bachelor's degree in homeopathic medicine and surgery from the University of Mumbai.

Awards and Honors
I had topped the University and was felicitated for the same.
