Homeopathic management of Gout

It is a disorder where the uric acid is not metabolised well. The serum (blood) level of this normal substance is high.

This is the current name for the syndrome characterized by debilitating fatigue and a variety of associated physical, constitutional, and psychological complaints.

East is East and West is West

I have recently had the unusual experience of making East and West meet in my homeopathic practice. Having been called away from India to the US on urgent business, I was left with no option but to be available to my patients in the clinic half way across the world using Skype video call.
