Dear Yagyesh,
         You are very young and have already developed grade 2 and grade 3 avascular necrosis in your right and left hip joints, respectively. Under these circumstances, even if you were to get treated by any alternative system of medicine that would facilitate healing, it would not be medicinally possible to mould the head of the femur so as to fit the hip joint correctly. This will make it very difficult for you to move around comfortably. So, I think the doctors are right in advising surgery. I request you to scan your X-ray and upload it on this forum for me to have a look. In the meanwhile, please start off with a mixture of Arnica montana and Symphytum mother tinctures (in equal proportion), taking 15 drops in half a glass of water three times daily for 2 months. Also, take Calcarea fluoricum 3X, 4 tablets thrice daily for 2 months. Then, get a repeat X-ray to see the difference. However, before you postpone your surgery to try these medicines, please do speak to your orthopedic surgeon and ask him whether you can afford to delay surgery for a month or two. 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.
