Sharing is caring
|Usually, as a doctor, I respect patient privacy and assure 100 per cent confidentiality in consultation. Sometimes, some patients may ask whether I have ever cured any such similar, difficult case. Some may go further and ask for testimonials/proof and patients’ address/phone number to get clarifications and gain reliability about the treatment.|
For them, I used to explain that nowadays testimonials are often cooked up and posted as advertisements to attract patients. Even then, they would not be satisfied until they see improvement in their treatment.
According to me, patients should have confidence in the doctor with their qualification and experience. Anyhow, since most of my patients come through referrals from cured patients and they speak for the doctor. Even though result of treatment, course of treatment and nature of treatment differs from patient to patient, patient-referred patients follow the medicines sincerely and get benefitted more than those who just come for treatment as an alternative trial. Here patient’s hope and confidence also supports the treatment.
Here I wish to share some clinical experiences (respecting patient privacy) for the sake of suffering humanity:
Let us start with my clinical experience starting from the top i.e.
Gaining Minor – losing Major
Here’s a real story that reveals how unnecessary or improper treatment can worsen the status than the disease itself.
Recently, one fine evening, Mr S, aged 29 years, approached me for treatment of his anxiety and suicidal mania. He is a software engineer from a reputed institution and newly-married - just 2 months. He complained that he developed fear and aversion towards life after marriage. On probing, he revealed that he did not have erection to satisfy his partner. Because of that, he felt ashamed and even thought of suicide but fear of death stopped him. As he loathed life, he had even resigned his high-profile job.
I started enquiring whether he had any other health issue. He replied that he was perfectly healthy and always maintained his good health with regular workouts for at least 45 minutes a day.
Probing further, I enquired whether he was getting morning erection. He replied that he used to get good morning erection previously i.e. before four months, but not recently. He also felt that his penis was shrinking due to lack of erection. Then I enquired whether he was stressful recently – during the problem period. He denied being stressful and said, instead, he had returned from America four months ago in a happy mood for the marriage. He added that he got back here only after completing a challenging project very successfully.
I tried to find out whether he was interest in his partner and sex. He immediately replied that even though his was an arranged marriage, he loves the girl and has good interest in sex. He added that in spite of her cooperation, he could not succeed to satisfy her and feels ashamed.
He even tried to get Viagra tablets from nearby medical shops twice, but was too bashful to do so. So he would end up buying some other common medicines. Though he finally succeeded in buying it online, now he was worried about its reliability, quality and side-effects. He concluded by saying he wanted some powerful medicines to cure him immediately or else he might go crazy or commit suicide.
Analysing his anxiety, fear and sexual complaints, I prescribed two weeks medicines and advised him to be confident. By then he asked whether Homeopathic medicines can be taken along with his hair medicine and supplement spirulina. That lit a spark in my brain.
I started enquiring again about his hair treatment and medicines. The medicine was prescribed by a dermatologist for hair loss after he returned from USA. As hair fall stopped immediately, he wished to continue the medication. Somehow I convinced him to stop all (hair medicines and supplement) for some time and told him that I will be changing my prescription to stop hair fall and give him his nutritional requirement too. I gave him two types of medicines which needed to be taken twice a day and asked him to come for a review after 15 days.
After 15 days, it was a joyous young man who came for the review. He told me that he now has an active sex life and had enjoyed a good honeymoon. Further, he has no fear or anxiety now and would be moving again to America in a better position soon.
But he had a complaint: homeopathic medicine given to check hair fall was not working and so he wished to start his previous hair medicine again!
Now I had to explain:
The wonder drugs what have prescribed are Agnus castus 30c and placebo. Agnus Castus works well for sexual melancholy and depression. Placebo is nothing but sugar pills (I did not consider his hair complaints). People should recognise that the main thing which helped medicine to act so fast to bring confidence and sexual health is removal of obstacle/cause, i.e. the allopathic medicines prescribed for his hair fall.
for new hope

Mode of taking Homeopathy Medicines
Under the diagnosis and advice of a qualified Homeopath, Homeopathy medicines will usually give comfort, calmness and hope to suffering mankind even in difficult cases, for some of which the modern medical world says nothing can be done. Homeopathic medicines can provide cure gently, promptly and permanently if they are taken properly. The medicine, its potency (power), its frequency (repetition), may vary according to the patient and the condition. Even with long time medications, Homeopathy medicines are completely safe and free from all sorts of side-effects and addiction. It can be safely used in infants, children, adolescents, adults, elderly people and even in pregnant women.
Wonders of Homeopathy
Homeopathy is gaining in acceptance the world over due to its nature of treatment. Homeopathy does wonders when applied scientifically. As Homeopathy works on certain principles, it never fails within its limitations. However, a Homeopath may fail in treating the patient when he cannot elicit the characteristic symptom of the patient to match with the drug symptoms for selecting similimum (apt drug in right dosage). Homeopathy usually believes in internal treatment rather than topical applications or external interventions (removal of the disease or its effects using surgery, acids, freezing, burning, banding, laser, radiation, cauterization, ointments, liniments, oils, etc.) since internal medicines can only throw/expel the disease. Internal Homeopathic medicines treat patient as a whole by supporting the body’s own process of healing (immune mechanism) without any side-effects.

Sustained treatment is essential to combat / post pone recurrences in cancer. Likewise all the benign tumours need to be analyzed every year to make sure that it remains benign without growing in size or differentiating. What is Cancer? Any abnormal proliferation in cytology or numbers of the cells is considered to be a tumour or growth. There are two types of tumours, i.e. Benign and Malignant. Benign tumours are the growth which has more number of cells but has similar pattern of cytology of existing normal cells. In case of malignancy, i.e. cancer, the cells will go out of range in size, cytology and numbers in uncontrollable manner invading other tissues and spread to other parts (metastasis) endangering life. Tumours either benign or malignant can cause different set of symptoms in different set of people according to the location, involvement of structure and spreading nature.
