Homeopathy/idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis


my mother 80 yrs. has been diognised with pulmonary fibrosis in CT scan.Her lungs are showing scarring, has lost 12 kgs in 2 months, very tired, no appetite at all, is there any treatment for this in homeopathy?

Dear Atul,
         There are medicines in homeopathy that could help to stop or retard the fibrotic process. You can try putting her on Aurum metallicum 30C, 4 pills thrice daily, and Silicea 12X, 4 tablets thrice daily for a month. Please ask her to practice deep breathing exercises along with this treatment, preferably after doing steam inhalation for about 10 to 15 minutes every day, once or twice. As for her fatigue and loos of appetite, you can give her Alfalfa mother tincture, 15 drops in half a glass of water, thrice daily for a month. Hopefully, this protocol should help her to improve. 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.
