Dear rajkiran
I am sorry to learn about your cousin's illness. If he has hallucinations, it is a sign of a serious mental illness. I can't help you in searching for a homeopathy doctor but allopathy has excellent medications for treatment of such problems.With due respect to other systems of medicine, I feel the best possible scientific evidence is for allopathic medicines to be effective , though the final decision is yours only which system of medicine you want to try first
Whichever system you try, don't change the doctor or medicines very frequently . allopathic medicines may need at least 3-4 weeks to start showing some improvement
Best of luck

Psychiatrist Dr. Ashish Mittal's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Presence of hallucination indicate diagnosis of psychosis, which is a severe condition and need urgent attention. In allopathy psychiatrists are specialized to treat such problem. So, it is better to meet them. Sometime treatment take time to show its effect. Many time frequent change of physician may lead to poor treatment response.

In my personal experience there is no good alternative treatment for psychosis.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
