• Myth: Homoeopathy acts slowly.

Fact: Action of homoeopathic medicine is dependent on immune reaction of the patient as well as nature of disease. Healing restoration power of patient plays vital role in healing.

•Myth: There is no side effect of homoeopathic medication.

Fact: There are side effects of homoeopathic medicines, we should say prognostic symptoms, which depend on nature of disease, and the medicine administered.

•Myth: There are many dietary restrictions along with homoeopathic medicines.

Fact: There are no such long lists of dietary restrictions during course of treatment. Only those certain things are restricted which have direct or indirect effect on disease condition or/and functionality of medicine administered.  For e.g. as people say that onion and garlic should be avoided during treatment, there is no such scientific finding to support this as seen clinically.
