Lorenz recognizing his clinic as an important center for Iscador therapy in India.

Often patients accept Allopathic treatment blindly. Despite the increasing health consciousness most of us
are too scared to discuss our health problems with any degree of
seriousness that they deserve.
During Homoeopathic treatment, it is very essential that
one should refrain any Allopathic drugs as it becomes very difficult to assess the improvement and also, Allopathic drugs many
a times suppress symptoms temporarily and are miles away from
curing. The drugs, which a patient is taking on a long-term
basis, should be tapered gradually over a period of weeks to
months. Many times due to prolonged ingestion of certain
drugs one may develop side effects, which the patient may not
be well aware of. Hence, we at Homoeopathic Health Center
like to educate the patients who are on long and short-term
The fundamental reason for me to discuss the commonly
used allopathic drugs is that even after practicing Homoeopathy
for the past twenty two years I still get ninety per cent of patients who have already taken Allopathic drugs for their problems and may still desire to continue some of the drugs at the
time of consultation. It becomes an essential duty on my part
to separate the symptoms of the disease and the long-term side
effects of the drugs. As a timely warning to the patient after
recognizing those side effects one can save the patient from permanent complications. Also the symptoms (side effects) of the
drugs can easily be removed from the prescriptive totality.
There was a long felt need to present such book to the
J profession. It all started in 1978 when Dr. S.S. Apte,
Honorary Physician of Nanavati Hospital used to conduct lectures on Allopathic Pharmacopoeia for Homoeopathic Physicians. The series of lectures were quite successful but unfortunately were discontinued. As far as Homoeopathy is concerned
we are still lagging behind modern medicine. Hence, for years
to come Homoeopathic practitioners all over the world will have
to encounter patients who are already on Allopathic drugs and
who are now intending to undergo Homoeopathic treatment .
for IHD, Diabetes mellitus, hypertension etc. Now the question arises—what are we going to do in such a situation? Un-
fortunately with a heavy heart I write this that academically
majority of Homoeopathic Physicians yet prefer not to reduce
Allopathic drugs at all, as they feel they are safe. and comfort-
able when patient is taking both the types of medicine. These
are the Physicians who belong to the Mongrel Sect as called by
our master Hahnemann.
Even for a common boil, they prescribe Cifran and Heparsulph. But there is another class of Homoeopaths called ‘True
Hahnemannian Followers, who are very sincere and genuine
and will at least make an attempt to reduce the Allopathic drugs
like antibiotics and steroids and instead try the efficacy of
Homoeopathic drugs alone. It is for the benefit of these
Homoeopaths that I have written this book, as this will help
them to reduce mistakes in their practice. It will also help them
in alerting to the common mistakes made during practice due
to the lack of knowledge of Allopathic medicines. I hope they
will understand how to reduce the Allopathic drugs or stop them
depending on the case in hand.
The book describes certain group of medicines as regards
their brand name, general information, adverse effects and warning signs.
The book will definitely help Homoeopathic Physicians
to understand treatment given by Allopathic Physicians and
would alert them with early signs of adverse effects.
This book has also been prepared to keep the patients in-
formed about the drugs they have or had been taking.
This book would not have seen the light of the day had
Dr. Girish J. Soni not dedicated his precious time even when
his wife was pregnant. I sincerely thank his wife Chandra and
their little daughter Sachita.
I also thank my students of the first batch of Critical Care
Medicine like Farhad, Benaifer, Pinky, Azeez, Renuka, Ronak,
Jayesh, Varsha, Ajay, Naini, who constantly encouraged me to
write a book like this.
