Homeopathy/Alfa Alfa Q


Dear Doctor Prasad

I am 55 years old and suffer from rheumotoid arthiritis.This has resulted in a drop in my hameoglobin which has made me weak and tired.
Can I take a course of Alfa Alfa Q?
If yes, what is the dosage?

Best regards

Puneet Sud

Dear Puneet,
         While alfalfa is a general tonic, it may not help to increase your hemoglobin drastically. Many autoimmune disorders also give rise to anemia, as a part of their pathogenesis. Hence, it would make more sense if you try and get your rheumatoid arthritis treated homeopathically. This will help to correct your immune disturbances, rather than only suppress your immune responses. Further, if you wish to focus on tackling your anemic status first, you can take any allopathic hematinic, as it will increase your hemoglobin level rapidly. Altering your diet to include green leafy vegetables, apples, Indian gooseberry, dates, garden cress seeds, and good protein sources will also help. If you wish to take alfalfa just for good health, you can take 15 drops in half a glass of water thrice daily for a month or two. 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.
