Ask him to undergo a 14 day course of shirodhara & start doing meditation daily. This is the best stress buster. Start taking milk & ghee daily, exercise daily, have good nutritious food, sleep early are some other things that he must follow.

My 11 year old son often suffers from bronchitis and tonsillitis infections and he also suffers from fruit allergy, leaving him with severe cold if he has any fruit. Do you have any recommendations for his health? Any supplements? I have read about apple cider vinegar and it's curing effects of the above mentioned aliments, but can it be given to my child safely? Also considering his allergy?

Dear Remya your sons tonsillitis may be due to multiple causes like viral,bacterial.allergic etc. first of all if you want to find a permanent cure, cause has to be ascertained, and as you know from school day studies every disease is caused by altered immunity from simple cold to virulent cancer . Homoeopathic approach is to correct the imbalance in immunity which is the route cause of disease. No supplement will correct your immunity and it will only enrich with nutrients. if interested do book a online consultation

I have a problem of allergic rhinitis how it can be cured and what are the special remedies.

I have a problem of allergic rhinitis how it can be cured and what are the special remedies.
Some times what we think as allergic rhinitis is mainly sinusitis first thing you should go for ct scan of nose and sinus than treatment is based on grade of the sinus, if it is grade iv than no treatment is available or effective unless you get this corrected by surgery, surgery will give you nearly 80-90%. Than remaining you can treat with homeopathy than it will help. The bone of he nose gets deviated this leads to nose breathing problem if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusitis. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopic ally. But if the sinusitis is grade ii or iii than there are possibility that you may get relief from symptoms.
