1.  Why is it necessary to be nil by mouth for few minutes before and after taking  Homœopathic medicine?


Homœopathic medicines are absorbed through nerve endings. If we have taken anything by mouth before/after taking it, It can develop barrier layers between it and nerve ending which will interrupt in action of Homœopathic medicine.



2.  In Homœopathy, all medicines look same in size and colour, Are they same?


No, these white pills are only medium or vehicle for medicine. Actual medicine is the dilution, from which few drops are added into white pills. They are chosen according to the requirement of every person. White pills are used to lessen the bitterness of Homœopathic medicines.



3.  Can these small pills be effective to treat the disease?


Of course, they can do. Because every particle is converted into small particle and every small particle has more energy than the previous state. Homeopathy works on the basis of this principle.



4.  Homœopathy (Homœopathic medicines) takes a very long time to cure the disease, is it true?


Most of the time patient wastes his/her time in different modes of treatment for years before going for Homœopathic treatment and his complaints become more severe during this period. More severe the conditions, more the duration of treatment (relatively). If the patient chooses Homœopathy right from the beginning, the recovery period is very short.



5.  In Homœopathic treatment, there is always an aggravation then after the cure occurs, Is it true?


It is partially true but it is not always necessary. It occurs in cases where symptoms are suppressed wrongly. This initial aggravation indicates that the selected remedy is correct and the disease is being eradicated from its roots.



6.  Can allopathic medicines be taken along with Homœopathic medicines?


Yes, if the patient has started allopathic medicine before Homœopathic medicine then as per the convenience, they can be stopped. And in severe cases, if the body is addicted to allopathic medicines then with the help of Homœopathic medicines, the severity of disease is lessened and then allopathic medicines can be stopped gradually.



7.  Homœopathic medicines are effective only in long-lasting chronic diseases, not in every disease?


Homœopathic medicines are equally effective in chronic & acute ailments but in our society, the patient never chooses Homœopathic medicines directly. Homœopathic medicines are useful from fever, cold, coryza, tonsillitis to every acute disease. It is also effective in conditions requiring surgery like renal stone, gallstone, abscess, appendicitis etc. They can be treated without surgery.



8.  Diabetic patient cannot use Homœopathic pills, as they are sweet in taste, Is it true?


They can use it because in Homœopathic medicine there is no content which increases the sugar in the blood. Even Homœopathy is useful in the treatment and management of Diabetes.
