The greatest violinist of our times, Yehudi Menuhin said, Homeopathy is the safest and more reliable approach to ailments and has withstood the assaults of established medical practice for over 200 years.” Like Menuhin, there are many who believe that the sweet white pills provide greater and long-lasting cure to many chronic ailments.
The practioners of this German alternative medicine are few and Dr Manjusha Balekundri is one of the few recognised homeopaths in Singapore. Ten years ago, she set up Satguru Homeopathy Clinic and has so far treated thousands of patients specialising in chronic and acute disease treatment. Her patients are multi-ethnic including Chinese, Malays, Indians, Americans, Germans, Arabs and many more. She also treats overseas patients in countries such as America, Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Dubai, Thailand, Indonesia, UAE and many more through online consultations.
In a free-wheeling interview with India Se, the 47-year-old Dr Manjusha Balekundri, shared her experience of practising homeopathy in Singapore.
India Se:Tell us a little about your childhood and upbringing.
Dr Manjusha Balekundri: I am a Maharashtrian, born in Belgaum, Karnataka, India. However, I was brought up in Pune, as my father was working there. Later, he started his own business in Wardha so we shifted there.
I think I get my entrepreneurial roots from my father as he started his own business when I was studying in primary school. The way I operate as an entrepreneur stemmed from my father. His hardworking nature and determination inspired me to walk in his footsteps.
