Homeopathy/Medicine Over Dose


"Respected Sir,
         Sometimes Homeo Medicines are prescribed in Liquid Form (for example) 2 drops in half cup of water,My question is whether in case by chance IN STEAD OF 2 DROPS SOME 3-4 DROPS GO INTO THE CUP WHETHER WE SHOULD TAKE THE MEDICINE OR DISCARD THE CUP AND MAKE A FRESH ATTEMPT.More precisely whether the extra drop may cause any harm
         With thanks"

Dear Kalyan,
         To be very frank, the number of drops of the medicine hardly matter in Homeopathy. It is the frequency that really makes a difference. Hence, if you put a few additional drops of the medicine, you need not worry, as it is not going to harm you in any way. 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.
