Q. Since childhood I have been suffering from Psoriasis. I have been taking conventional treatments for it but it keeps coming back. Sometimes I feel I will never be cured. I hate to go out and meet friends and socialise. People keep asking me about it and even when they are not looking at me I feel they are. I have heard that Homoeopathy is very good for skin disorders. I would like to try it but am scared of stopping my regular medicine. Can I take conventional medicines with the Homeopathic medicines?
Ans. Conventional medicines can be taken safely along with Homeopathic medicines, these are natural products so do not interfere, but there should be an hours gap in taking the medicines. In case you are on allopathic medicines, you should not discontinue it abruptly. The Allopathic dosage can be tapered off in consultation with the physician once improvement starts with the Homeopathic medicines.
Q. I am a diabetic, I avoid sugar commonly. For the last one year I have been suffering from frequent stomach disorders. Allopathic treatment many a times increases the problem. I would like to go for Homeopathic treatment but am uneasy because of my diabetes. Do you think it is advisable for me to seek Homeopathic treatment? Can a diabetic patient take these sugar pills?
Ans. We often encounter this question and the answer is fairly simple. In mild to moderate diabetic cases, Homoeopathy is safe and does not fluctuate. There is always an option of taking dilutions or liquid medicines. In fact globules are just a mode of dispensing, the actual medicine does not contain any sugar and will definitely not have an impact on the sugar level.
Q. I have heard that one shouldn’t touch Homeopathic medicine. I have a little two year old who loves to put his medicine in his hands and then merrily eat them. I am afraid that the medicine would be ineffective then?
Ans. This is a wrong notion and should not be entertained. There are no restrictions in touching Homeopathic medicines as long as your hands are clean (fragrance or chemical free). You can easily allow your little one to take them in hands before popping them in his mouth. Don’t worry!

Q. I’m not a Muslim, will Hijama/wet cupping benefit me?
Ans. Hijama/cupping is beneficial for everyone, it has no boundaries of any specific gender, race or religion.
Q. Is Hijama/Cupping hygienic?
Ans. We use sterilised, single use supplies for each client. Surfaces are cleaned frequently using hospital grade disinfectants. After hijama/cupping session is completed, the cupped points are usually wiped and a good quality antiseptic cream would be applied. Since the scratches are so light, they close up by themselves very quickly, therefore, there is no need to apply a wound dressing.
