Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do Homoeopathic medicines have steroids?
Ans: All Homoeopathic medicines are prepared by using scientific predefined methods of extracting the medicinal properties from source substances. There is no scope or need to adulterate the derived medicines with any other substances, as this would completely obliterate the curative properties of the same. The prescription of homoeopathic medicines is based on the similarity of symptoms of the patient with those produced by the drug (in its purest form) when tested on healthy individuals. Additionally, steroids impart a bitter taste, and homeopathic medicines are sweet.
Q: Doctor! what medicine do you have for my rheumatism or Diabetes or hemorrhoids or asthma or any other named diseases?
