I had consumed some amount of coffee in between a homeopathic treatment. Some experiencing a couple side effects, what to do to get rid of them?

Coffee & homeopathy: In some people, coffee can antidote homeopathic remedies. This may cause a resurgence of the symptoms you had before the remedy. You may also have a sensitivity to caffeine, causing still other symptoms. I suggest telling your homeopath what has happened so s/he can suggest what to do.

Is homeopathy treatment is good?

Is homeopathy treatment is good?

Yes, very possibly: Whether homeopathy treatment is "good" depends on why it's being used, and what expectations you have. It will not re-grow an organ that has been removed, but it may improve functioning of organs you still have in your body. I've seen it be useful in both acute illnesses, and in a wide variety of chronic ones which conventional medicine has either failed to help or has little to offer. ...Read more
