Please tell my which remedy should i take for the above problems. Right now  my biggest problem is indigestion, asthma, frequent sneezing with running nose, then resulting in yellow-green mucus.

I think asthma and sneezing is also due to indigestion



ANSWER: Dear Ashish,
         I suggest that you start off with two remedies: Arsenicum album 30C and Kalium sulfuricum 6X. Preferably buy a 30 ml sealed bottle of the former in liquid form. The latter always comes sealed anyway. Take 5 drops from the former in 2 teaspoons of water twice daily and 4 tablets of the latter twice daily for 15 days. Then, please get back to me with your response to the treatment. I will advise you accordingly after that. Thank you.

QUESTION: Dear Dr. Prasad,

As per your prescription iam taking Ars alb 30 and Kali sulph 6x since last 15 days.

Asthma and sneezing is under control but stomach is not improving. Digestion is extremely slow. I have to eat in very very less quantity, otherwise my stomach gets upset.

Other problem is that i dont get motions regularly and daily. 2-3 days there is no motion, and then there are frequent stools or loose motions. It means whatever i eat gets accumulated in the intestines. There is no proper assimilation of food in the stomach, because of which my weight is also not improving.

Kindly suggest remedy for proper assimilation of food and digestion. This problem is even more than my Asthma problem.



Dear Ashish,
         Please continue with Arsenicum album in the same way; and instead of Kalium sulphuricum, switch to Calcarea phosphoricum 6X, 4 tablets thrice daily, for 15 days. Let us see if your digestive and sexual complaints respond to this remedy. 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.
