Homeopathy/phytolacca berry


hello sir ! my name is nikhil singh. my age is 20 and my height is 5'2.  i am over weight and my weight is 76. one of my relative told me about a homeopathic medicine  phytolacca berry which can make us thinner and slim. plz guide me whether i can take this medicine or not. if it has any side effects plz tell me.

Dear Nikhil,
         You can certainly try this medicine, as it is absolutely safe. It will gradually increase your basal metabolic rate, so as to help you shed some weight. However, please do not expect any miraculous results, as it is a mild remedy. You will have to diet and exercise to see good results. 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.
