Sir my homeopathy dr says duchenne muscular dystrophy is curable with homeopathy should l trust him?
Quackery & delusions: If that "doctor" really could do that, he'd win the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Homeopathy is not medicine. Practitioners have no real medical knowledge. Would you want your MD to practice 214-year-old medicine on you? Because that’s when homeopathy was invented. Join the 21st century.

Is cortical dysrythemia (as eeg) curable with homeopathy (bufo rana30, oenanthe crocata-3x)? Please advise!
Hard to know: Without knowing your case, I cannot say how well those remedies (Bufo rana & Oenanthe crocata) apply to you. Hopefully you're working with a professional homeopath who has taken your case well and has prescribed accordingly. In general, homeopathic treatment has been known to help seizures -- but remedies are prescribed for the individual experiencing symptoms, not pathologic diagnosis alone. ...Read more

Dears ,i had an echo forheart with IVSD 14mm / LVPWD 15mm .doctor say i have concentricLVH & grade 1 diastolic dysfction. i am 33 yrs,should i worry?
Some concern: The most common cause for a concentric pattern of LVH is hypertension, so it is important for you to have an excellent level of blood pressure control. Diastolic dysfunction of that degree means that it takes your heart a few more thousandths of a second to relax between beats. It is quite common in the setting of LVH. Again, blood pressure control is important. For a higher degree or symptomatic diastolic dysfunction, beta-blocker medication is often recommended to slow the heart between beats. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Wait.: Doesn't sound like you need oncologist as your tumor has been removed - it was really very tiny. 3 mm? A micro carcinoma. How did one find this?
