     Sleeplessness is a very common problem, and it is very difficult to treat the problem, as the causes vary from person to person. The best way out is to try and find out the trigger factors in your case and try to modify them. Also, you can think about activities that bring on sleep in your case. For example, some people get drowsy by reading for about half an hour before going to sleep. Others like to bathe with warm water, drink a glass of warm milk, or listen to instrumental music to fall asleep. Ensure that your bed, your pillows, and the ambiance of your bedroom are as per your liking and comfort levels. On the homeopathic side, you may take Passiflora mother tincture, 15 drops in half a glass of water, half an hour before going to sleep. It is known to relax the mind and induce sleep naturally. It is absolutely safe and has no adverse effects. 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.
