I feel very strange when I drink black tea. If feel like it's a drug for me. It really messes up your mind. I also feel strange in stomach and sometimes have blood in stool when drinking black tea.
My doctor didn't say so much. What would you say about this?

Dear Andrew,
         You may be idiosyncratic to black tea. Therefore, although most people can tolerate black tea fairly well, you cannot. The caffeine and tannin in black tea may be irritating your gastrointestinal tract, causing discomfort and bleeding too. Therefore, I suggest that you avoid drinking black tea as far as possible. you could try the homeopathic remedy called Thea (prepared from tea itself) in the 30C potency, taking 4 pills thrice daily for a fortnight or so, to see if it reduces this idiosyncratic tendency. 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.

I had topped the University and was felicitated for the same.
