Homeopath 's  Response
Hello friend,
Thank you for posting your query through Healthcare magic.
Your aunt is having a psychiatric condition called Xenoglossy. This is a symptom of other psychiatric conditions likely to be developing in her. Without getting the details, I cannot exactly diagnose her condition.
There are no uniform opinion among psychiatric scientists regarding the possibility of talking in a perfect foreign language in which the patient had no previous acquaintance. The possibility of some acquaintance with a foreign language or its style is needed for the patient to talk in that language, in an imperfect manner even, according to many of them.
In Homoeopathy, there are 4 remedies indicated in this condition: they are Camphor, Lachesis, Nitric acid and Strammoium. Out of them Strammonium has cured several such cases. In Homoeopathy we treat the patient and not the disease.
You may approach a Homoeopathic expert to select the most suitable curative remedy for her.
You can also get back to me with details through the premium follow up question facility of Healthcare magic. I can help your aunt.
With Best Wishes,
Dr C. J. Varghese,
