Hi Dr., My dad (72 years) who had vision only in one eye due to a failed cataract operation 28 years back recently started losing his vision in that one good eye. This has led to anxiety and depression. He complains of fear (of loneliness).
Could you please prescribe homeopathic medicine/s for anxiety/ depression.


Dear Philip,
         First and foremost, his fear and anxiety are justified. It is very natural for a person who has been seeing normally to be afraid of being thrown into darkness for the rest of his life. Please consult a good ophthalmologist to check if his vision can be at least preserved if not restored. If he is a case of macular degeneration, there are ways of slowing down the degenerative process. Please give your father Five-phos 6X, 4 tablets thrice daily; and Argentum nitricum 30C, 4 pills thrice daily; for a month. Let us see if he improves physically as well as mentally. 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.
