Dear Rajan
opacities in the left mid zone of the lungs can be because of numerous reasons. Infections,tuberculosis, tumors, or even fungal infections can cause this.
Please get it investigated properly, you will need CT scan of the chest along with few other investigations to get to the proper diagnosis.
Without knowing the reason, just taking some homeopathic medication is probably is very dangerous thing to do.
