  • I do not cease to be surprised at how everything looks simple, if the mind and knowledge of a homeopath are correctly applied to the patient. Huge respect for you, doctor.

  • It is really wonderful that a single prescription of Staph 200 is enough for the good result of a patient suffering from primary infertility. Our sincere thank goes to Dr. Shirisha Shiri, a young homeopath. Her mode of prescription depends on the mind and general symptoms. It is unique. She never thinks of the name of the disease but she considers the most important characteristic symptoms of the medicine.
    Our good wishes and appreciation are always with her.
