Creating Waves of Awareness
I was attending the Miasm class given by Dr Aadil Kasim Chimthanawala MBBS, DMS. While talking about real sickness and the results of sickness, he mentioned that just like the body throws away real sickness, nature also could support the body in the cleansing process. He said that during our treatment when maggots appear in the dying tissue, it…Continue

The quantity of food they consume may be same or even lesser than men. But, what makes them obese is, at the end they consume the foodstuff on the table, left behind by the other family members. Also inside the kitchen, they do the final performance by taking the food remaining in the cooking vessels (it contains more fat). So, instead of…Continue

My cousin’s daughter is just one and half years old. She is fond of one particular cradle song sung by K S Chithra (renowned female singer from India.) Whenever the child cries for any reason, that song soothes her easily. Surprisingly, neither any other songs nor by her favorite toys will calm her. It is almost like an addiction to that…Continue
Among the various Materia Medica books we use, I always enjoy reading Leaders In Homoeopathic Therapeutics, written by E B Nash. In spite of my attachment to his book, I used to feel that Nash was a fool, because he has not given the drugs in the alphabetical order. It is a real headache to find out the remedy we need to read. I always wondered why B Jain has repeated the same mistake he had done. They could have arranged the drugs in alphabetical order while reprinting, but given only the…Continue
It is better not to ask any leading questions to the patient. But, there are occasions wherein we are forced to ask some yes-or-no questions, especially at the end of case taking, either to confirm the remedial diagnosis or the disease diagnosis. Some times, asking yes-or-no questions may be mandatory to rule out certain life threatening conditions.…Continue
Always empty the urinary bladder before starting your vehicle. Rupture of the filled urinary bladder is one of the reasons for complications during road traffic accidents. An impact on the abdomen can compress the filled urinary bladder, which can even rupture when it is full. Chance for the rupture of urethra is also more when the bladder is full. So, do not hesitate to empty the bladder before you start your vehicle.
We all spend a notable portion of our time schedule on the roads, either traveling or walking. Due to busy lifestyle and poor traffic conditions, our roads often become public war zones! Majority of people on the roads are strangers, hence the situation may go out of control. Mentality of each person, and crowd as a whole, can influence the situations on the roads.…Continue

A girl, aged 15, was brought to me by her mother. They were under the treatment of a local practitioner, who diagnosed the case as nasal polyp. Even after taking several years treatment, the polyp was not disappearing completely. They decided to go for surgery as a last resort. As a family friend, they contacted me only for the sake of my opinion on the scope and complications of polypectomy. So what they need is my opinion, not medicine.
On examination with a nasal speculum,…Continue
There are different types of patients. A few patients are very health conscious and visit the doctor for regular checkups and treatment. But, there is another group who often comes for consultation under pressure from the family members or friends. Once the presenting complaints are relieved, they stop visiting the doctor. This tendency is dangerous when they…Continue

A 6-year-old girl, named S, was brought to me by her mother. It was her teacher who referred the case for homeopathic consultation. The girl is poor in communication and school performance. She never mingles with others, but plays normally with her own brother and the kids in the neighborhood. She is often active at home, but becomes silent in public. She often gives answer by nodding the head or even by facial gestures. Her teachers used to get irritated from her poor communication. A…Continue
What do we often read whenever a patient comes with a lab report? Frankly speaking, due to lack of time, we read the ‘Impression’ given at the end! Right?
But, before we read the ‘impression,’ or even the details given above the same, make sure that the report…Continue
When Mr. H. entered hurriedly to my consulting room, I thought it is a case of exopthalmos due to hyperthyroidism, because his facial expression and behavior was almost same! But, I was totally wrong! It was his horrible situation that changed his expression. His both nostrils were completely blocked since almost three to four months due to ethmoidal nasal polyps. He was unable to breath through the nose, and there was no sense of smell since many days.
His voice was also changed due…Continue
