Homeopathy/heel pain


Hello dr. prasad I am a 59 year old male from India. I do not smoke or drink and weigh 70 kgs. I have Plantar Fasciitis (heel spur)in my right heel. I have taken a Dexamethasone (corticosteroid) injection in the heel. i got relief for just one month and pain started again. I have heard about Hecla Lava but i would like to have expert advice. Because at the age of 35 i suffered from ankylosing spondylitis. Can i go for Homeopathic treatment ? thanks

     You can certainly opt for homeopathic treatment, as it works wonderfully in this condition. Please take Hekla lava 30C, 4 pills thrice daily; and Calcarea fluoricum 3X, 4 tablets thrice daily for 1 month. For faster relief, give your heels a contrast bath every day, i.e. soak your feet alternately in two buckets, one filled with bearably hot water, and the other with ice water. You should respond well to this treatment. Please do keep me informed. 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.
