Homeopathy/DEfecation issues


DEar Prasad ji,

I have been taking Sanicula 30 for 15 days but no effect at all. Should I try something else now or still hope is there. (But what will I try?)

Dear Abhishek,
         Please take the same remedy in the 200C potency now, taking 4 pills thrice daily for another 15 days. If you are still not better, try Alumina 200C, the same way. I hope are following all the other lifestyle recommendations that are usually made for people suffering from constipation, such as consuming a high-fiber diet, drinking 8 glasses of water every day, taking a big bowl of curds daily, and exercising regularly. Hopefully, you should respond. If you yet do not improve, you should see a homeopath close to you for constitutional treatment. There are hundreds of remedies in homeopathy that can be of help to you. Choosing the appropriate one that suits your problem the best is the challenge. 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.
