Homeopathy to gain weight

Posted by: P. Lakshmana Rao

Iam thin person. My age is 44 years. my weight is 55 kgs only. i want to gain weight. please suggest homeo medicine to gain weight.

Always remember it is better to be a thin person than an obese one. Do not take medicines to gain weight. Instead eat a good, balanced diet which is high in protein and exercise reguarly.

Medicine is only prescribed if there is an associated disease that needs to be treated.
All the best,
dr. leela
