Homeopathy/leg pain


Hello sir  my mother has severe right leg pain start from behing buttock and go down upto ankle she also have pain just below  knee join line pain aggravate randomly my senior doctor made diagnosis sciatica but i am not fully satisfied  because pain mainly below joint line .please  suggest me what i can do

Dear Dr. Rizwan,
         You are right in thinking that this is not only a sciatic nerve affection. The fact that she has pain even below her knee joint means that she could be also be having some degenerative changes in her knee joint along with the vertebral osteoarthritis, which has led to sciatica. First and foremost, medicines will only help to relieve pain temporarily. For a more permanent solution, she should see a physiotherapist, who will teach her certain exercises that will help to strengthen her muscles and reduce nerve entrapment. On the homeopathic side, give her Gnaphalium 200C and Calcarea fluoricum 3X, 4 pills and 4 tablets, respectively, thrice daily for 15 days. If Gnaphalium does not relieve completely, you can try Colocynthis 200C in the same way. However, continue with Calcarea fluoricum 3X for at least 2 to 3 months. 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.
