Natural Remedies for Pharyngitis

Alifiya, an IT professional, entered my clinic with a complaint of severe pain in throat and wanted a respite ASAP. I calmed her down and began the conversation by taking her history. Here’s how our conversation proceeded.

Dr Nidhi: Have you eaten anything spicy or junk food or are you allergic to anything?

Alifiya: Yes, I’m allergic to dust and few food items such as milk and pineapple. Do you think it’s because of the allergy? I am really having a hard time dealing with it. Due to the pain, dryness, and irritation in my throat, I’m not able to swallow food.

Although at first it looked like an allergy, after a thorough examination I diagnosed that it was pharyngitis. This condition is quite common since winters are here and sitting in an AC environment does aggravate dryness in the throat. Besides giving her Homeopathic sweet pills I told her to use some home remedies as well to get a faster recovery.

Here are the things that I suggested her that are really effective in the case of pharyngitis.


1. Apple Cider Vinegar


Apple cider vinegar in warm water with honey


Mix one spoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of warm water, add some honey and drink it once a day on an empty stomach to give a protective layer to your throat. ACV works magical due to its anti-bacterial anti-fungal and anti-viral properties in this weather.

2. Salt Water


salt water for gargling

Gargling with hot or warm salt water is one of the first things that the elders suggest for the soreness and are right to do so. Salt water can help in treating your sore throat and kill the pharyngitis causing bacteria. Mix one tea spoon of salt or sea salt in a glass of warm water and gargle with this solution three times in a day.

3. Honey


honey in warm water, star anise

One of the most trusted remedies for pharyngitis, honey works better for upper respiratory infections compared to other over-the-counter medicines. Mix a teaspoon of honey in warm water, add some lemon pinch of star anise powder and drink it slowly. Keep drinking this throughout the day till your condition improves.

4. Turmeric


turmeric in milk

Turmeric being a powerful antiseptic and anti-inflammatory doctor from our kitchen can be used with milk at bedtime for a quick recovery. The Golden latte, as the world calls it, works magically on throat problems.

5. Garlic

garlic oil in water

The active compound allicin in Garlic makes it work like an antibiotic. You can mix garlic oil in water and gargle for instant relief. You can also make tea with garlic, cinnamon and pepper. Consume fresh garlic pieces like a cough drop and crush the garlic between your teeth to release its allicin for best results.

 Alifiya was very happy to know that all these prescriptions can be made and consumed in the comfort of her home.

Alifiya: Thank you doctor, I already feel better and I am trying all of it the moment I reach home. This is great!

Dr Nidhi: Wonderful! But all these things would work if you follow a small set of instructions. They are as follows.

Things to Keep in Mind:

1. Chicken soup can also offer relief to a sore throat.
2. Make sure you drink water several times in a day to stay hydrated. You can drink warm water for some relief.
3. Avoid smoking and tobacco products. Also, ensure you’re not passive smoking.
4. Try to get ample of rest to recover quickly.
5. You can also drink chamomile tea and peppermint tea for better healing.

Alifiya: I will follow the instructions like a ritual doctor.

Dr Nidhi: (Chuckles) Very well.

Alifiya did follow all the instructions and got well very soon. The holistic health care has always aimed at a natural way of healing. Hence when you choose integrated healthcare in Pune over medicines, you can find relief for a long-term without any side-effects.

I hope this blog was helpful for you.

Natural Remedies for Viral Fever

One of my best friends Sujata who would always come up with something funny to say and crack me up, sounded very strange when she called me a couple of weeks ago. Her voice was weak, trembling and coarse. I instantly knew the cause of it. I asked her to come over as soon as possible. Her husband drove her to my clinic. When I saw her, she appeared weaker than what I imagined from her voice. She was suffering from viral fever, which is a pretty common in monsoon.

It's very easy to detect viral fever, just check for the following symptoms: sore throat, body pain, cough, and a runny nose. Sometimes, the fever can also lead to diarrhoea and vomiting.  I am sharing our discussion during which I recommended her some natural remedies which worked very well for her. I hope it helps you too.

Dr Nidhi : So Sujata, how are you feeling?

Sujata : First I had a sore throat and I knew I would be suffering from cold so I took few precautions but I soon got a temperature and lost all the strength in my body. What do you think it is?

Dr Nidhi: It's viral fever.

Sujata: Oh dear, is it contagious. I am worried about my kids.

Dr Nidhi: If proper precautions are not taken, it can pass on to your kids.
First of all make sure that the handkerchief that you use for coughing and clearing your nose is properly disinfected. Make sure that no one comes too close to you and your bed sheets and clothes are regularly changed. This will prevent the germs from affecting any of your family members. For the germs inside you here are some natural remedies.


tulsi leave tea

1. Tulsi Leaves

Their anti-bacterial and antibiotic properties make Tulsi leaves an effective solution for viral fever. Boil some tulsi leaves in clean water, add half a spoon of clove powder and let the solution boil till the water shrinks to half. Drinking this mix at regular intervals can help you to fight off the infection faster.

coriander tea

2. Coriander Tea

It definitely sounds soothing to drink tea when you’re down with cold and fever. If you can make tea with coriander seeds, you’ll be surprised at how effectively it can boost your immune system too. Coriander seeds contain vitamins, antibiotic compounds and potent volatile oils, which help in reducing the symptoms of your viral infection. You can add one tablespoon of coriander seeds to one glass of water, boil it and allow it to cool. Strain the water and add sugar for a healthy and curing tea.

fenugreek water

3. Fenugreek Water

Commonly available ingredients in the kitchen, Methi seeds are a reservoir of medicinal compounds that have the capabilities to treat viral fever and other infections. If you want to opt for holistic health care, fenugreek seeds are a great solution for a healthy body. Soak one tablespoon of seeds in half a cup of water overnight. In the morning, strain the solution and drink the water at regular intervals. You can also add some lemon or honey to the water for added benefits.

Ginger and honey


4. Ginger and Honey 

If you want some instant relief from the symptoms of viral fever, ginger is a magic ingredient due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Consume dry ginger along with some honey and you’ll feel much better in no time. You can also make tea with ginger and honey to feel better.

neem leaves

5. Neem

Neem has been used for holistic health care in traditional medicine and has countless benefits. Though all parts of the Neem tree are useful for holistic health treatments, the bark is considered most effective to treat viral fever.

Sujata: Thank you doctor. I was so worried about this disease. People say strange things about high power medicines and drowsy cough syrups but your remedies are so easy to make and administer.

Dr Nidhi: That's the beauty of integrated healthcare in Pune; it gives you relief without the risk of any side-effects. These natural remedies offer instant relief and keep your body feeling better and healthy for the long term. They also help in enhancing our immune system so that we are less prone to catch these infections in the future.
Sujata recovered rapidly during the next week. Thanks to her loving and caring family who followed all the instructions and kept her warm. This is how with simple home based remedies you can cure something as serious as viral fever.
I hope this information was useful to all of you.
Happy Healing

Positive Parenting Tips to Help Your Kid's Aggression

Are you baffled by your child’s aggressive behavior? Though it might be one of the toughest phases to face as a parent, you should know that you’re not alone. Only yesterday I come across a family who was going through this same hassle. Fortunately, their belief in holistic health treatments brought them to me. As tough as it may seem, I think that with just a few simple tips you can try to control your child’s rage.

We all have heard that children can be aggressive at times. But when your angel suddenly starts to hit, push or growl at others, it is natural to be concerned. In this blog I shall reveal, through the conversation I had with the family at my clinic an integrated healthcare in Pune, some useful tips to keep your kids expression in control.

Mr Narayan: His fits of anger are growing with every passing day. Earlier he used to get angry in the cute childish way like all the children do. But he would also quickly succumb to our cajoling and be cheerful again. However recently, he is angry for a longer period and has also started to break things.

Dr Nidhi: I would ask you to Recognize the Reasons behind the Aggression, Research suggests that one of the primary emotions behind aggression is a feeling of helplessness. If your kid is directing his aggression towards you, maybe you are exercising too much control over your child. I don’t mean this in a negative way. Your control may come out of love and you always wish to assure his safety hence he keep regulating every aspect of his life.

Mrs Narayan: Yes doctor you’re right; because we tend to get a little paranoid about his safety we tend to impose a lot of restriction. So how should we remedy this?

Dr Nidhi: You can try giving your child more power by choice as your relationship can benefit immensely from this freedom. When children are aggressive towards other children, it is because they can’t express their feelings to get what they want. The key is to teach them to express their desires without resorting to means like hitting or yelling.

Mr Narayan: Indeed, we should give him more choices. But, what about his behavior doctor?

a mother talking to her kid

Dr Nidhi: Once you accept their feelings, the behaviors are automatically curbed. When our kids get angry, it is important to first acknowledge their feelings. One of the best ways of diffusing negative emotions is to recognize them. For instance, a simple sentence like, “You look really upset” can make a big impact.

If you can catch your kid’s emotion when they are getting upset, make sure to let them know that you understand how they feel. However, it is important to note that even though you empathize with their feelings, you don’t agree with their behaviour.

I would like you to ask a question, do you hit your kid?

Mr Narayan: Occasionally when he gets impossible, he leaves no other option. I know it’s not right, but it’s really hard to see him like that and not be able do something about.

Dr Nidhi: I understand but you should always Use Your Words, Not Your Hands. It can be easy to slip into the trap of using your hands to regulate your child’s behaviour. However, the minute you do so, you’re teaching them exactly the opposite of what you want to.

Rather, use your words so they know that there are other tools like words available to portray anger and you don’t always have to hit or scream. For example, if your child has hit you, say ‘Ouch, no hitting. You seem really angry about something. Please tell me in words.’ This conveys that you care about their feelings but you won’t be a victim of physical violence.

Mrs Narayan: I do the ‘Ouch, no hitting’ part but not quite often.

a mother talking to her kid

Dr Nidhi: Well Consistency is the Key. It can be exhausting to be a positive parent to an aggressive child. However, remember that consistency is an important step for the holistic health care of your little one.

Children can be confused if you are okay when they push their friend one day and get really mad when they do it the next time. Make sure you have established certain ground rules and you stick with them at all times. Always be consistent when he misbehaves and try to set an example with our own positive behaviour.

Mr & Mrs Narayan: Thank you doctor this has been really great. We didn’t know there were so many things that we were doing wrong, no wonder our kid was getting angrier by the day. We shall do everything that you have suggested.

So, how do you think the conversation went? Did it help you identify the places where you were going wrong. Let me know what you think about it.

Lastly, you can also prevent future aggression by helping children balance their good hormones. Holistic health treatments encourage skipping, jumping, swimming, bouncing a ball, jumping, etc. Managing aggressive behavior is a tough and time-consuming job.

You will need the support of your friends and family and experts so that your child is calmer and happier. If you still can’t manage your child’s aggressive behavior, it may be time to consult his paediatrician or a holistic health care specialist for other solutions. Feel free to see me at Dr Nidhi’s PHCC – an integrated healthcare solution in Pune!

8 Natural Remedies for PCOD

As soon as Lavanya entered my clinic with her mother, I could feel that something was an issue – she was an 18 year old girl weighing 80 Kgs and breathless from a walk from her car to my clinic. She even stopped to catch her breath in the middle of our discussion which alarmed me even more.
Lavanya was suffering from PCOD.

It is one of the most common occurrences in women. According to a research one in every 10 women is suffering from PCOD today. It stands for Polycystic Ovary Disorder; or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). The term implies the formation of multiple cysts in the ovaries. Although it’s a hormonal disorder and the exact cause of this disease is hitherto unknown, it can be treated with holistic health care.
Over the years I have treated teenagers, newly married and middle aged women suffering from PCOD with my integrated healthcare in Pune.
It often takes time to understand the condition since the symptoms differ with the person. Some ladies show one set of symptoms while othersa different set. The condition is worsened by unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise. Lavanya was also afflicted with unhealthy eating habits and dullness.
She is not the one to be blamed. The technology, which allows us to sit at one place and go through all the entertainment in the world, is at fault. Parents and teachers should push their kids to indulge in more physical activity. It shouldn’t always be as strict as a badminton class where the kids are compelled to keep their schedule and derive little to no pleasure from it. Parents should be enthusiastic enough to take their kids on regular outings and make exercise a family time. Let’s go back to Lavanya.
After I took her history, I came to know that she had irregular periods since the time she first started menstruating(menarche). Also due to her over eating habits and eternal love for sweets, she had gained a considerable weight. She hadalso become more irritable,dull and restless in the last few years. Her face had acne and overgrowth of hair (hirsutism) which contributed to her lack of confidence.
Luckily, her mom believes in holistic health treatments and natural medicines and hence decided to bring her daughter to me.
I knew if she switches to a healthier diet and exercise, her condition would improve rapidly. I suggested a few home remedies and lifestyle changes and the results were great.Lavanya and her mother could not be happier.
We may not know what causes PCOD, but we know this for sure that it grows rapidly in an unhealthy body. Hence it needs holistic health treatments.There are so many Lavanyas out there who are struggling with this condition. If you know someone around you, who is suffering from PCOD, I would like to share the remedies that Isuggested to Lavanya

1. Have ajwain and methi water at bedtime to maintain the insulin level in your body.

Causes of Obesity in Children and Natural ways to fight it

When a ten year old Kritika entered my clinic she was already limping due to her 70kg weight and by the moment she sat in front of me she was breathless already —hardly 50 steps and this condition!!! Is this what we call love for our children????
Unfortunately, childhood obesity has become an epidemic today. It has significantly impacted the physical and psychological health of our children. As per research, obese children have a higher chance of staying obese as they turn adults. They might also develop diabetes, hypertension and heart diseases at a younger age compared to non-obese children.
 According to WHO, there are nearly 43 million overweight kids under the age of 5. By 2020, nearly 60% of diseases around the globe will be because of obesity. Don’t get too worried as these are just research statistics. But yes, every day in my clinic I see minimum three children moving towards obesity and parents being helpless as the habits we inculcate since their birth are now showing its repercussions. Integrated health care can help parents like you deal with child obesity. Let me make you understand how we can do it holistically!

Causes of Obesity in Children- 

The most common causes of childhood obesity include genetic factors, inadequate physical activity, and unhealthy eating patterns. In rare cases, childhood obesity may be a result of medical conditions like hormone problems.

a kid eating a burger

A poor diet containing higher levels of fat and sugar and comparatively fewer nutrients may result in kids gaining weight quickly. Parents should pay close attention to the eating habits of their children and overall lifestyle to reduce obesity and ensure holistic health care for their little ones.

Natural Remedies and Holistic Health Treatments: Healthy Eating

When you go food shopping, choose fruits and vegetables over crackers, cookies and other prepared snacks which are often high in fats and calories.

 fruit salad

Try to prepare food with fun element e.g. make cartoon faces on a plate with the help of fruits or salads, it will attract the kids and shift them to healthy items. Limit sweetened beverages and fast food as they offer lower nutritional values and higher calories rather give them fresh lemon juice with gur or make zoodles out of vegetables along with herbs for it will activate their taste buds and boost their immune system.

a family eating in front of T.V

You should also consider sitting down together for family meals and avoid distractions like TV or mobile phones. Remember to serve appropriate portions – children don’t need as much food as adults. Restaurant food can be an option once a month rather than every weekend.

Kitchen Secrets

How about adding honey to milk instead of sugar??? It is sweet plus it will calm down the hyperactive brains of your super child and help them sleep peacefully. There are other benefits of honey too; adding honey to your child’s diet can help in burning fat and excess calories. So the next time whenever your child demands energy, give lukewarm water with honey and ginger.

Other measures that can be taken on a day to day basis are:

Encourage your children to drink warm water 30 minutes before and after their meals to lose weight. Tomatoes and cucumber with black pepper and lemon are good for liver and kidney so try it half an hour before meals.

chapattis stuffed with vegetables

Green leafy vegetables are high in fibre but none of the kids like it so give it to them either in form of soup or stuff it in chapattis. The chapattis will make them fell full for a longer period. This helps in reducing the need to indulge in fast food. Fennel seeds also help in treating childhood obesity by limiting food cravings. Make a powder of carom seeds and fennel seeds along with raw coconut and give it to them post meals to chew it well. It helps in fast digestion and also suppresses their cravings.

Physical Activity

In today’s tech world every child is hyperactive isn’t it??? That activity is only on the mental level as far as the physical level is considered there’s hardly any activity. When we say holistic health care is a solution to reduce childhood obesity we don’t mean only diet rather we aim to channelize the child’s energy towards physical activity.

children playing with their mother

For being active helps in reducing weight, strengthening bones and muscles, and burning calories. It also supports better sleep and promotes alertness during the day. Try to limit TV and screen time to 1 hour for toddlers and not more than 2 hours for older kids. Encourage free-play activity like hide-and-seek, jump rope, slides and swings, etc. You can also take part in activities with your child and as a family make it a fun activity so that they look forward to it.

Remember that integrated healthcare in Pune is all about a healthy lifestyle for your little ones. Holistic health treatments are always better than medications and thus, as parents, you should try your best to offer a healthy and nutritious diet for your children. Together, we can fight childhood obesity and look forward to a healthy future for our nation.

The Role of Homeopathy in Treating Illnesses like Cancer, Diabetes, Hypertension, etc.


We all have our reservations about homeopathy, whether it’s effective enough? Whether it’s fast enough? Whether it cures completely?
My friend was no different; he had a little doubt himself. Which I tried to resolved during our conversation. I am sharing with you all, the highlights of our conversation. Hope it clear your doubts too.

Pravin: I can understand about cough and cold but can we trust homeopathy with the serious diseases?

Dr Nidhi: Homeopathy is an alternative medicinal practice that has shown positive results for millions of patients. It is a holistic health care solution that offers treatments for a number of diseases, right from allergies and skin disorders to thyroid, anxiety and serious illnesses like cancer, diabetes and hypertension.

Key Facts About Homeopathy:
  •  Homeopathic physicians assess a patient, recognize the symptoms and then match them with the right medicine. Doctors grade symptoms as per their intensity and frequency and then assign specific remedies.
  • Homeopathic medicine works on the ‘like cures like’ principle
  • Since homeopathy offers holistic health treatments, doctors study the patient’s complete lifestyle, background and behaviors. There is also prominence to emotional symptoms that might contribute towards an ailment. For instance, emotional stress can lead to tension headaches or lack of sleep can cause digestive issues.      
  • Homeopathic medicines are prepared by diluting the mother tincture over and over for several times to make a potent mixture. A diluted mixture may be thought of less effective but it is believed that with every dilution the mixture gets stronger.
  • In homeopathy all medicines work on individual basis, hence there is no generalization of medicines.

Pravin:  What about cancer how can homeopathy play its role in fighting cancer?

a person being treated at a hospital

Dr Nidhi: Homeopathy is one of the most common complementary therapies used by cancer patients around the world. It is a completely different medicine compared to the conventional cancer treatments. It is recommended to use this treatment alongside the conventional medicine to get maximum benefits. Homeopathy is promoted as a natural way to help patients relax, cope with the anxiety, stress and depression of the disease and control the symptoms and side effects like pain, tiredness and sickness. It can also help to boost the immune system so that patients can fight the disease better.

Pravin:  Okay, so unlike popular believe homeopathy is not a substitute to cancer medicines but rather a complementary therapy.

Dr Nidhi: Yes absolutely. But homeopathy doesn’t always complement the conventional medicines. There are diseases where homeopathy was alone able to fight it off. One good example is Diabetes. 

Pravin: Really? My uncle suffers from diabetes; please tell me how I can help him?

a person drinking green juice

Dr Nidhi: Diabetes is a growing concern in the world. According to WHO, India will have 80 million diabetic patients by 2030. Homeopathy uses the process known as individualization for holistic health care of diabetic patients. It treats the patient and not the disease by understanding his/her emotions, family history, sleep habits, mental reactions, and individual preferences. It offers Jambol seeds, Insulinum, and Uranium Nitricum for dealing with high blood sugar levels.

Pravin: That’s great! I can easily get access to these natural remedies and slowly start changing his unhealthy life style. Along with diabetes he also suffers from hypertension which has increased since his medical report.


Dr Nidhi: High blood pressure, also known as hypertension can put your heart and circulatory system at risk. It is often called the silent killer. Homeopathy has been used in conjunction with conventional medicine since the last 2000 years and helps patients with the necessary lifestyle changes and integrated healthcare in Pune to reduce the effects of diabetes.




Compared to allopathic medicines that offer instant results that aren’t long-lasting, homeopathy medicine shows results slowly over time but ensures long-term results. Homeopathy doesn’t work in a superficial manner. Instead, it helps the body and mind to get back to its natural efficient self. Belladonna, Natrum Mur, Glonoine, Rauwolfia, and Nux Vomica are some of the most effective homeopathic medicines for high BP.

Pravin: This has been a real revelation Nidhi. I can confidently say that this talk has helped me get rid of most of doubts. I know its role and its incredible contribution in the field of health care.

I hope this blog has helped you understand the important role that homeopathy plays in the health sector. It has proved vital in fighting in some disease whereas proved an effective complementary therapy in a life threatening diseases.
