Can Ayurvedic or homeopathy help to cure azoospermia cases?

Of course not: Beware of words like "remedy" & "tonic." They're red flags. In the bad old anarchic unregulated days before the FDA, traveling medicine shows, magnetic healers, herbalists, snake-oil salesmen & other quacks peddled useless cure-alls called "remedies" & "tonics" to a gullible public. As you've discovered, they're still out there, still doing it. You're buying a bottle of very expensive water. ...Read more

With a well-taken case and accurately prescribed remedy, there should be a sense of forward progress within a few weeks -- even if not all symptoms are yet "gone." full healing may require a year or more, from your list of problems (esp the anxiety).

Docs can you tell me if these are ok?  "asthma therapy homeopathic dissolving tabs" i bought them today at cvs and 10 min later my breathing is great

Harmless, but...: By def., a homeopathic remedy contains no actual medicine or therapeutic agent. As such, they do nothing for you, except to activate the very real placebo response from our body. They are generally safe, but I have one concern in your regards. You shouldn't come to depend on these tabs to the point of not having ready a rescue inhaler (e.g., albuterol) in case you get a serious attack. ...Read more

Asthma & homeopathy: These tablets are a "combination" remedy, composed of multiple homeopathic medicines in the same container. They are not individually prescribed, so can't be as accurate as one well-prescribed one could be. However, it's possible that you got lucky -- and one of the remedies in the combo is close enough to your asthma symptoms to help. If you worsen, please don't delay seeing your doctor. ...Read more
