      I just found out I have the very beginnings of cataracts. I hadn’t thought about treating with homeopathy till running across this article which says Antimonium Tart is the remedy. Can you explain which potency, dose and duration? Thank you!

  18. Brenda Johnson says:

    Dr. Sharma,

    Does Histaminum hydrochloricum work for a stress induced histamine intolerance? It is not allergy, but a condition of Mast Cells Activation Syndrome.
    Does it work in people who have histamine overproduction due to exposure to different factors? I have glaucoma, so I am restricted as to what I can take for MAST Cell Syndrome.

    Have you written about this in any of your blogs?
    Thank you!

  20. Wigglo Trelloy says:

    Dear Dr Sharma,

    Thank you for wanting to help 🙂🌻

    My sister (45 years) has been blind in one eye since birth. In the other eye she has a prescription of 8.75 and 2 posterior subcapsular cataracts, possibly caused by 25 years on inhaled corticosteroids for asthma and from mostly being outside. The risks of surgery are very great for her so she needs something to heal the cataracts naturally, and to strengthen and protect her eyes and vision.

    If you genuinely believe that homeopathy can help her, please could you advise which medicine you think best? If you doubt that it will have a positive impact, please say so as time is of the essence. I read that this type of catatact is the fastest growing and can develop in months. So we can’t afford to invest time and hope in something unlikely to help.

    Thank you so much for your guidance.
    Best wishes.
