Homeopathy/Homeopathy Mother Tincture


Respected Sir,
         For my 3.5 year old grandson Doctors prescribe medicine in globule form (say Pulsatila-30. Nux Vom-30 with 4-5 globules for 3 times a day)But our observation is that the medicines lose its efficacy after about one month and do not remain so much effective.However medicines shops say that that they do not lose its effect so soon.
    My question
A)Whether we should change with new medicines after one month OR
B)Alternatively we can change to mother tincture of the same medicine to get its full effect.In that case what should be the dose.(Say)In half cup water how many drops of medicine and for how many times a day should be the method for this child

     It is true that homeopathic globules retain their efficacy even after months. Patients feel that they lose their efficacy because the alcohol content in them goes off, being volatile. The only time that you should discard them is when you see the globules turning yellow. If you wish to use them in liquid dilutions, you can add 2 to 3 drops in a teaspoonful of water and give it to the patient two to three times as suggested by your doctor. If you have been advised a mother tincture, you will have to put 15 to 20 drops in half a glass of water and take it as frequently as suggested by your doctor. 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
