Chikun Guniya - Homoeopathic Farce
While the country is reeling under the onslaught of Chikun Guniya (for a long time, I thought it was a Kannada dialect of the actual scientific name), there are some charlatans who claim that there is a homoeopathic cure for it. These are probably the guys who vouch by homoeopathic panaceas.
There was one such advertisement in a Chennai daily by a doctor. I bought the medicine from him for 150/-. My trust in the pristine medical forms was so high that I knew this would work even before I left his clinic/house.
His instructions were simple - Take 2 pills, get relieved of the aftermath/symptoms for life. I was so amazed that I practically thought I has the all-healing Holy Grail in my hands. I gave it to my grandparents who had been affected with CG and were agonizing over the post-infection symptons of CG. They took just 2 pills as advocated and viola ... it vanished.... NOT THE PAIN, the PILLS!!!
They still suffer the same pains. I do not think there is any real homoepathic medicine to cure it.
Do not shell out money on this false claims !
