WHETHER MUCUS CLEARING MEDICINES LIKE (kali mur , kali sulph , kali bich/any such combination)WILL BE SUITABLE FOR HIM .ALSO IS THERE ANY PREVENTIVE CONSTITUTIONAL IMMUNITY  DRUGS TO RELIEVE HIM .Please advise with dose for this child

     On the basis of your child's symptoms, I would recommend the homeopathic remedy Ammonium carbonicum 200C in the acute phase, giving 4 pills thrice daily for a week or so. To try and reduce this tendency, I suggest that you put your child on Calcarea carbonica 30C, 4 pills every night for 15 days. Then, please revert back to me with your child's response to the remedies. 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.
