Can I eat curds while taking allopathic and homeopathic medicines ?

Good evening! I am on homeopathic medicine for malaria and typhoid. But this medicine is given by the doctor because some symptoms like headache , low grade fever remained after the allopathic treatment of typhoid and malaria. The doctor says that low grade fever can also be due to urine infection so he said that he has added some medicines for that too in his homeopathic medicine. I have started this medicine 1 month after that allopathic treatment.My stomach is alright now but I wanna know, can I take tart/ sour things for example curd while I am having these medicines? Also, is there a compulsion that the patient has to eat these medicines 1/2 hr before or 1/2 hr after food intake?

Homeopathy medications must be taken as prescribed by the physician
also whatever has been told to be avoided must be strictly avoided and also homeopathy medicines and allopathy medicines are to be avoided concurrently

Dear , the homoeopathic medicines should be taken sublingually, as the part is rich in nerve supply, the homoeopathic medicines work through stimulating these nerve endings, so it is important that there should not be any taste before you take a homoeopathic medicine and you should avoid eating anything till the taste of the medicine lasts,

you can depend on homoeopathy,

take care, have homoeopathic medicine,stay healthy.

Homeopath Dr. Swati Ramkumar's  Response
Ideally there is no major food restrictions while taking homeopathy except for the foods that do not agree with your health complaints and black coffee!!
A half hour or 15 min gap needs to be maintained before and after taking the medicines, as homeopathic medicines act by way of nerve endings. Since tongue is rich in nerve endings, homeopathic medicines are taken on/below the tongue, which ensures better absorption. Any food or drink had immediately before or after forms a coating on the tongue and hampers absorption , hence the 1/2 hr gap.
Kindly continue the medications under your doctors guidance, and I am positive you would be fine. You may eat what you feel like in moderate amounts.
