I have 2 children ,aged 3 years and 9 months.My elder one had chronic ear infection and upper respiratory infections.He was also diagnosed with adenoids.My younger child also started on the same lines.Repeated ear infections,cold.Both of them were being administered strong antibiotics and very frequent doctor visits.The medicines and visits were getting more and more but I felt that both my children were losing their own germ fighting immunity.

I was introduced to homeopathy through Dr.Nirupama Sagare in Jan 2010.Dr.Sagare developed a thorough case history sheet for both.Through her I came to know about how homeopathy helps the body to develop immunity and fight infections on its own rather than trying to suppress the infection ,like antibiotics.Homeopathy takes time to first clean the entire immune system of a person,helps the body to get rid of any ills and then improve the immune system on its own.Dr.Sagare suggested natural remedies like garlic,honey,lemon juice,warm water to alleviate symptoms.Initially the homeopathic pills were given to fight the current sickness and then pills were given to develop the child's immunity.

Its been 4 months and the doctors visits and antibiotics have definitely come down.By following simple home remedies and homeo pills I am able to see a lot of improvement in both my kids,especially in my elder child.His colds,ear infections,coughs have definitely come down.

This alternative medicine is slow but worth every single course.I am grateful to Dr.Sagare for guiding us and showing us hope in the form of homeopathy.

I am Raman Pillai,72 years old. I have chronic problem of prostate related urine retention. Everytime after passing urine, a certain residual urine used to remain back and this used to give me recurrent infection.

I had tried several medicines off and on but my basic problem of frequent infections continued. When I consulted Dr.Nirupama and had a detailed discussion to answer every question that a Homeopath asks to determine an accurate medicine and exact dosage, I waited for few days to get the medicine that was tailored to my particular problem. I continued medicines for 3 months. I started feeling the difference and reduction of symptoms after about a month or so. And in about 3 months I had considerable improvement and a sense of relief.

I was surprised also to find that I had chronic issue of cracks on my soles and foot area which also healed after about 3 months of above mentioned course of medicine. It seems Homeopathy treats a total person or consitution as they call in Homeopathy.

I keep getting urine related infections but far less than before. Last episode was after 2 years break compared to earlier once or twice every 3 months. I still take homeopathy medicines which give me relief in about 10-15 days. I recommend Homeopathy for anyone with chronic illnesses.

Hello, my name is Rohan Manglik and I wanted to share my experience regarding homeopathic medicines, the treatment, effectiveness etc. To begin with my illness, I was diagnosed with Acute Sinusitis sometime around Spring of 2008. That was after I decided to consult a ENT specialist after more than 6 months of constant sinus pressure, nasal blockage/drainage and even difficulty concentrating at times. It’s not that I didn’t visit doctors, I did go to regular Physicians but the diagnosis and treatment weren’t doing anything to improve my condition. After visiting the ENT in the spring of 2008 and the CT scan revealing the Acute Sinusitis, I was put on a strong dose of a medicine(sorry cannot recall the name) and also nasal spray which seemed to start working..After the 2 week course I felt better in a long time, but the symptoms returned in no time. Even a single glass of cold water would make me run for a napkin as the mucous would generate in hardly any time. I was back to square one with the nasal discharge, pressure and a feeling that there is constant blockage in my nostrils. At one point the ENT had also recommended steroids and if nothing worked, surgery to "balloon open" my sinuses..Again, I’m sure these treatments are fine and do work on patients, it’s just my own personal reservations of taking these remedies which is why finally I decided to give homeopathy a try. To be honest, I decided to go with it because of 3 reasons-

1) Recommendations from my family

2) I didn’t want to take any more strong allopathic medicines (This was just a personal choice, I have nothing against them)

3) I somehow had faith in the doctor I was about to consult :)

So I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Nirupama who very kindly took time from her busy schedule and decided to meet with me in person. Before the meeting, I was given a health questionnaire to fill out which was quite different from the one we fill out at the doctor’s office. It asked for some detail answers on family health history, daily life questions, questions about conditions not pertaining to your illness etc. Don’t worry, its rather fun filling it out and I learnt there is a good reason for it. Any Homeopathy medicine does not cure just a single illness, it can cure/improve other existing conditions or may even have a adverse impact so it is important to fill out the questionnaire to the best of one’s knowledge, which I did.

The meeting with the Dr. went well and I was prescribed a medicine to be taken for 3 days and based on the results further treatment would continue. I knew homeopathy medicines didn’t have side effects and I was also told it may take time for the illness to go away but I was prepared for it. Also, when I saw how patient and understanding the Dr. was, you sort of ease into the treatment as well. The first dosage didn’t help me much, since I did have quite a severe case of sinusitis and the medicines prescribed were a bit mild. This is also something I learned - in homeopathy, the dosage strength is gradually increased judging the patients reaction. Of course one may argue that what’s the point? Why not give a relatively strong dose and get the treatment over with? I thought the same, but then the Dr was kind enough to explain that even Homeopathic medicines have very mild side-effects and what’s the point in jolting you with a strong dose if the illness can be treated with a milder one? Although side-effects are very mild, still there is no point unnecessarily exposing a patient to it.

After a 2nd visit and another prescription, my condition actually worsened...No people please don’t stop reading this post here :)...This is also a nature of these medicines, for a brief period your condition may get a bit worse but on a positive note it’s a sign that the medicine is working! So after about a week or so I did start noticing some improvement. After seeing improvement, the Dr. asked me to stop the medicines and wait to see how I progress..Sorry I should have mentioned earlier, I had stopped taking cold beverages and alcohol right from the beginning of the treatment. Alcohol is a no-no while one is on homeopathic medicines...Ironically the medicine constitutes some alcohol :)

For a few weeks things were fine but then I felt the conditions returning back. I think this is quite a challenging stage for a doctor to try to first assure the patient and then also figure out an alternate course of action. I was starting to lose hope again. Another consultation with the Dr. and she prescribed a slightly stronger dose (Note: I am not using any specific names of medicines as each medical case is unique and I don’t want this post to be used as a remedy for any condition). Another week or so went by and my condition really improved. The Dr. asked me to take the previously prescribed medicine only as necessary and only if my symptoms returned..Which did happen a couple of times but gradually they went away! The entire treatment from day 1 went on for roughly 8-10 months or so, but I am glad I chose this path. Sure, there were days when I doubted the effectiveness and the turn-around time of the medicines, but I just held-on and gave it some time. I am happy I decided to take the homeopathy path because for one thing, the sinus problem didn’t come back even after 2 allergy and winter seasons, which is one of the qualities of homeopathy medicine where it eradicates the root of the illness. I will say that I am still sensitive to cold beverages and try to avoid having too many of them in winter, but this somewhat runs in our family.

After this experience I can say with confidence that Homeopathy remedies do work wonders and there is certainly no harm in considering them if your health condition isn’t too serious and doesn’t demand immediate urgent care. Hope this post helps people answer at least some of their questions/concerns with homeopathic medicines.

I am happy to write this testimonial for Dr. Nirupama. My daughter, soon after her birth began to develop a skin issue that did not get cured with any of the medications provided by her regular pediatrician. However, Dr. Nirupama was able to quickly identify the cause and provide the appropriate remedy. The skin problems cleared within a few days and my daughter who is now close to three has not had a skin issue since then.
Dr. Nirupama is a friendly, dynamic and extremely competent doctor. She is patient and takes very good care of her patients. I am very happy to know her and glad that she is available for me and my family whenever a medical issue arises.

Hello, my name is Uttara Patil. I have very wonderful experience of homeopathy medicines. I had visited a restuarant where already pre-cooked frozen food was served. Following the lunch, I started getting stomach upset which turned from bad to worse. It was a case of food poisoning. Dr. Nirupama had suggested me a dose of Arsenic Album. I was worried because stomach upset had given me considerable weakness too.

After two doses of Arsenic Album, my pain in the abdomen subsided and also I could eat more of a light meal or liquid diet with no further indigestion problems. Later after last dosage I was feeling fine, without any abodmen pain and issues of stomach upset.

Since then I have been using Homeopathy and become a fan of this safe, mild mode of alternative medicine.
