Question
QUESTION: Hi sir, my daughter is 9 month old .her height is 63cm wh,. Is very below the growth chart of  9 month old  as normal height is 68 cm. do u prescribe any homeopathy med. For this.

ANSWER: Hello,
     Please note that your child is too small to predict how tall she will be when she grows up. If all her other milestones are normal, you need not worry, as it is very likely that she will catch up in due course of time. Just ensure that she is getting all the necessary nutrients, especially proteins. It is now established that micronutrients and proteins play an important role in the growth and development of a child. I would not recommend any medicine at this stage. If still in doubt, please get your baby examined by a pediatrician to find out if everything is okay. Thank you.

Answer
Hello,
     If your baby is active and her milestones are normal, I would still suggest that you stop worrying about her growth. However, if you are still in doubt, you should speak to your pediatrician and see what s/he has to say. As I said earlier, you can increase your baby's macronutrient (carbohydrate, fat, and protein) intake to help her gain weight and also grow taller. Thank you.

Expertise

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.
