Dear Himanshu,
         First and foremost, I must inform you that masturbation is a perfectly normal activity, which is indulged in to sexually gratify oneself in the absence of a partner. However, this should be done when your sexual desire is at its peak, to vent your pent up sexual energies, rather than out of habit just to get a kick out of it. You shouldn't try to suppress your desire. You can repress it by diverting your mind towards other activities that interest you such as sports, music, dance, picnics, movies, reading, treks, painting, etc. Meditating regularly and avoiding very spicy foods can also help you to control your mind better and thereby prevent you from masturbating out of habit. You need to exercise your willpower rather than take medicines. Anyway, if you still want to take a homeopathic medicine, I would recommend Staphysagria 200C, 6 pills every week for 2 months. 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.
