Frequently Asked Questions
No, there are no side effects of homeopathic medicines. Sometimes you may get a cold, skin rash, or a little discharge after taking homeopathic medicines. This means that the system is getting cleared. In the same way, your old symptoms like constipation, warts, or any skin rash may reappear. Do not take any medicine to treat these reappearing old symptoms, as these old symptoms will go away in a short while and you will be healed for a long-lasting time.
Yes, the patient is only advised to avoid eating or drinking 15 minutes before or after taking homeopathic medication. One has to avoid coffee, raw onion, and raw garlic. Also avoid eating mint, camphor, and menthol as these can hinder the action of the homeopathic medicine or antidote the effects of the medicine.
Any peculiar habit that you have, your past medical history, childhood details, anything and everything about you will help the homeopath to help you. If you give an honest and correct history to the homeopath, he/she can assess your case accurately. Anything that you confide in your homeopath will be strictly confidential and helpful.
It is true that occasionally after taking homeopathic medicine, the disease appears to worsen before it starts settling. There is nothing to worry about this aggravation, as it is short-lasting. There is an improvement in the general health of the patient and most importantly it is not life-threatening. However, if the disease worsens and if there is deterioration in the general health of the patient as well, then the treatment needs to be reassessed. However, all changes observed should be informed to the homeopath for proper assessment.
The pace of treatment depends on the disease one is treating and the patient’s compliance as well. Homeopathic medicines do act well in the management of acute cases. Acute exacerbation of diseases like asthma, acute gastroenteritis, epilepsy, etc can be effectively managed by homeopathy. If, however, the patient does not see any improvement for a long time, the patient should report to the consulting homeopath.
Establishing an accurate clinical diagnosis is an integral part of homeopathic treatment. The diagnosis is required to know the prognosis, to select the remedy, the doses, and the repetition of the remedy. Laboratory tests, radiological investigations carried out to establish the diagnosis are also parameters for further assessment of the disease.

We also strictly advise you not to self-medicate and start or withdraw any medicine without the homeopaths prior consent.
