Dr. Potnis’s Office- Jogeshwari (East)
Dr. Potnis has been practicing Homeopathic Medicine for the last 25 years in India. His clinic runs in one of the extremely poor areas of Mumbai. The clinic is very small. The main focus here will be on primary care.
Before my eyes, there was no difference between the treatments that Dr. Potnis and Dr. Bathla provided for their patients. But, what is Homeopathy? I first learned about it along other types of alternative medicine in a class of Integrative Medicine at UC Irvine: homeopathy, naturopathy, and acupuncture. Homeopathy can have a therapeutic effect on almost any disease or health condition.
The following are just some examples of conditions that can be prevented or helped with homeopathy: cold, flu, migraine, hay fever, sinusitis, allergic conditions, asthma, bronchitis, PMS, emotional conditions as anxiety, depression, stress, irritable bowel syndrome, bladder problems, eating disorders, diabetes, chronic fatigue, auto immune diseases, arthritis, childhood diseases: colic, teething, bed wetting, learning difficulties and obesity.
His patients age range from newborns to the elderly. He treated all different conditions from malaria to deep vein thrombosis. He based his diagnosis in patient history, with a style of question and answers from the patient, physical examination, and auscultation. He only ordered further testing to rule out other possible conditions, which efficiently reduces the expense that the patients have to make and still obtain an accurate treatment for their condition.
