Almost two years ago in the year 2006 I was worried with the deteriorating health of my father Due to age and prolonged effect of diabetes he had developed some complications like lower vision and poor hearing. One of my colleagues suggested to see one homeopathic doctor.

About homoeopathic science I was fascinated only for its sweet small globules, but had very little faith in the medicinal value of this line of medicine. Homeopathy has to face more criticism than the follower. Reasons can be several including the understanding of ours that doctor means who has studied allopathic.

One evening I took my father to him. He talked very casually in English with typical Tamil ascent, after a few minutes when he was talking to my father and giving details without asking him I was amazed. Like fortune tellers he told that my father probably had under gone three surgical operations. His diabetes was 26 years old etc. These could be pure co-incidental guess , which were correct, or his real knowledge.

After that I took his advise on two to three occasions for my father. In the mean time gangrene developed in the foot of my father and we had very hectic round of consultations with surgeons, physicians and neuro- surgeons. Five months evaporated in no time. Physicians treating my father post operation of gangrene had never suspected any heart complications. Unfortunately on 4th June ’07 morning it was heart stroke which took away my beloved father. It was only a homeopath who had warned me to take care of heart complication of the dad.

Later, after about six months early this year –2008 grand father of Aakanksha-Nanaji started having some complication in the body. He came once to Ahmedabad I restarted searching for Dr Iyer but he was not in his clinic cum home. It was guarded by some security person who responded that he has no whereabouts of him. At least once in week I used to visit his house but the scene did not change, only the security guard kept on rotating.

One of the guards who saw me re-visiting the place so frequently gave me a telephone number saying that it was of the brother of Mr. Iyer. I called up that number and requested if I could be given contact number of Dr Iyer as I was in need to consult him urgently. But the reply was shocking. In the hoarse sound he replied, Ï have told you several times there is no Dr Iyer, now if you call me I would ask the guard to beat you up.”

I gave up my efforts. When the summer vacations were about to set I got one note in the courier informing that Dr Iyer would be back on 24th April after taking some training. But I did not need him any more or may some where at the back of my mind was the warning given by his brother.

But, I respect his expertise and would wish that many patients may get benefited by consulting him. Following are the contacts of him.

His address as per the mail I received in this April is : Aum – 12, Sudarshan Society – 1, Near Naranpura Post Office, Ahmedabad – 380 013, Gujarat, India. He can also be contacted on phone no. +91-079-27683360 or by mail to He may start on line consultation soon, the letter said.

I believe in the saying once told to me by our family physician Dr Ruparelia – “Medicine works only 10% rest 90% is your trust in the treatment which heals.”

If we can have trust in the doctor and the medicine body will get cured. If patient does not trust his doctor he will be sick.
Wish may you recover fast.
