Role of Homeopathy: At Sathyam Homeopathy we treat every individual as a new patient. Based on the totality of symptoms (constitution of the individual both physical and mental status) and present symptomatology, we prescribe a similimum remedy which helps to remove the root cause of the disease, maintaining the better quality of the individual. Constitutional medicine helps to maintain enzymatic and gastrointestinal juices in a moderate way so that patient gets relieved of their complaints.
