    Respected Dr,

    Need your advice for my 6 year old son. He is complaning about stomatch pain and vomiting sensation from past 4/5 days. From last 2 days he has develop some nausea for food and throwing after meal. Most of the time he burps. I don’t want to give him antacid hence while searching for some safe option came across your website. I have read your posts and glad that you have helped so many. Any advice from you would be blessing.

    Respected Dr. Joe,

    Hope you are doing well, helping mankind in distress. My grandson Ibbo was diagnosed with DFI. They say its not a “disease”, its just a condition that they said most boys outgrow at age of 12 years and girls outgrow at 10 years. These kids have a hard time digesting fructose and it causes them tummy issues. Mg powder has helped him. I was just wondering what your prescription would be on this. Here is some detail on DFI:

    As usual, I pray for your long life to continue helping people in distress.

    Dear Dr.Joe
    Good morning.
    Hope you are in good health and cheer.
    I am reporting after 25days for my heel pain. Been taking Arnica30c and Arg Met 6c in WD twice daily. Heel pain is better. No pain when I first get up in the morning, but it comes as a sharp pain in the heel area at random times, while sitting, walking, standing or sleeping, lasts for about 2min and then goes away.
    My friend with urethral stricture has been taking Arnica 6c in the WD from Nov 16th and external douche once daily. No improvement seen yet. Will continue the same protocol indefinitely until relief is experienced and report then. I don’t want to give a negative feedback every week for a ten year old issue.
    My mother who has vascular dementia/ Parkinson and is in a care home in Bangalore had a fall about 3 weeks ago and hurt her scalp, sutured, healed now. But from last Wednesday she has been drowsy with blurred speech. Scan taken on Sunday and diagnosed as having brain haemmorage, 3/4 th of strain covered by blood. We decided against surgery and let nature take its course
    Since she is in admitted in a hospital and I am staying with her, I was able to give her Arnica 10m, wD 1tsp full on Sunday night at 7pm. By 10pm she started talking and spend the whole night shouting , no sleep as I wanted them to stop all the antipsychotic medications they were giving. Next day she was wide awake, no drowsiness ate all her meals well and slept well. Have given her 2 doses on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, she is improving and slept well over 12 hrs on Mon and Tue night.This was a miracle. Wednesday night she started sleeping but nurses came and woke her at 10pm for some tests and so no sleep after that. It was a repeat of Sunday night. Her Blood sugar levels have also come down to between 60and 120 so all BS medicine also stopped from Monday.
    Now shall I continue with the twice dosing? Can I give anything else for controlling her aggressive behaviour and abusive language as soon as a nurse or doctor or any stranger enters the room?
    Thanks and have a good day.

      I have caught the current Flu and have been under its virulent influence for the last week and have stayed at home away from office for the first time this year, for an extended period. I was reluctantly compelled to take an Antibiotic, Amoxil 500mg, for the first time since 2008 and this cleared the infection in 3 days and I feel about 60% OK today.

      You may not know that Homeopathy is not my profession as I am the CEO of an almost Century old business organization which I am now sharing with my son to whom I have passed on the daily chores of running it, with me visiting office daily as I have done for the last 70 years.

      When I read your account of your mother, I had to write to thank you for sharing the great news of her recovery, and I do agree that it is indeed a MIRACLE, thanks to Arnica 10M which you gave her, just in time. It is a report like yours that impels me to continue with my mission to serve suffering humanity with my Joepathy, and I thank God that I do still have the energy at age 89 to do so.

      Answering your questions about her, I believe that lowering the potency of Arnica down to 1M may help to control her aggressive behaviour, and you will give it twice daily as usual.
      “Scan taken on Sunday and diagnosed as having brain haemmorage, 3/4 th of strain covered by blood.”
      Arnica 30c would have been better to liquify the blood and even now I believe that this would be the preferred choice. If you do start on this potency you must not use the Arnica 1M.
      The medication for Diabetes will of course be stopped.

      You will stop the Arg Met 6c as this is not for daily use but you will continue with the Arnica for your heel pain.

      Do keep me advised of mother’s progress and I pray for her recovery.

  5. Shanthi says:

    Dear Dr.Joe

    Thanks for your reply. Sorry to hear about your health, great to know you have recovered.
    Do you want me to stop the 10M then and start with 1m tonight? She has now got back the use of her legs and started walking from 11am this morning. But it’s her aggressive behaviour which needs to be controlled urgently.
    So please tell me. I am on the way to the homeo shop now

    • Joe says:

      You must stop the Arnica 10M which I suspect is the reason for her aggression but in view of the fact that there is bleeding in the brain, this is best addressed with Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken thrice daily till we have proof with a scan that the bleeding has stopped.

      I hope you realize that her case is critical and it will be my pleasure to help her as best I can but it is up to you to give me regular updates of her progress to enable me to monitor it often.

    Hello Dr. Joe De Livera,
    My 11month old son has had silent reflux since birth. He has never slept longer than 4 hrs before waking and screaming in pain, his entire life. He wakes every 45 minutes every time I put him down for a nap and for the night. He sleeps on an incline wedge. And then he continues to wake up every 45-60 minutes wanting to breastfeed. Nothing else soothes him. He’s been on medication since 1 month old, starting with Zantac and now on Prevacid. He was tongue and lip tied, both corrected, and has never taken a bottle. He was in occupational therapy for 3 months without any success in bottle feeding. He was then in physical therapy for his torticollis which has improved dramatically. At 4 1/2 months he started oatmeal which helped with his constipation and gas. He has a hard time swallowing solids so he still only has purees (no fruits) and Breast milk. Even then he will choke if it is too thick. Because of his constant feeding, he’s grown to be 25 pounds and 30 inches long. He has a great temperament but does not sleep at all. What can I help to stop the his reflux? I’ve changed my diet since he was 2 weeks old, no dairy, coffee, caffeine, spicy or acidic foods and no chocolate. I haven’t sleep longer than 4 hours straight since he’s been born. I feel so bad for him!
    Thank you so much in advance!!

      I can well imagine your trauma for the last few months which I hope will be history in a few days after you start my default therapy for Baby GERD below:

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies and which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      You will give baby half a tablet dissolved in milk a few minutes before every feed and the balance half immediately after a feed but you will not exceed a total of 6 tablets (12 halves) in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

      Babies do not always do a poo daily. Some babies can go up to 5 days to do so. A gentle massage of her abdomen after every feed in a clockwise direction usually stimulates evacuation.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby. You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over 2 years old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give the MMR Vaccine in One shot as there is plenty of evidence on the Web of severe side effects which can result. You are advised to give it in 3 separate shots if you must do so, after baby is 2 years old.

      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby when you start on my therapy.

    Dear Dr.Joe
    Her aggression has been this bad for the past 10months. That’s why I had to admit her in a dementia care centre. But the care centre is treating her with all sorts of antipsychotics, but of no use. They were telling me that they are finding it very difficult to manage her as well. Since I am planning to spend the day with her at the centre daily for the next month I want try fixing her aggression with homeo drugs. You suggested I try 10M for her dementia back in our Nov14th-15th communication as I had already tried her on Arnica 1 m three years ago.
    We are planning to take a brain scan again tomorrow.
    Will 30c work after we have dosed with 10M? We usually progress from 30to 10M. Should I leave a days gap and then start 30c? I don’t want to make a mistake that’s why I am again asking for clarification.
    I am very grateful for your help and advice in this matter.
    Warm regards

    In May 2017 I broke my hand & my radius & ulnar bones of left hand broke. I undergone a surgery & plates & screws are fixed. After almost 1.5 year only one of bone is recovering while other crack is till there Doctor asking for bone grafting if it not healed in next 6 months. Any Homeopathic medicine to heal this faster ?

    • Joe says:

      Symphytum Q will help your bones to knit faster.
      Dose 10 drops taken twice daily in a little water.

      Report response in a few months.

  9. Shanthi says:

    Good morning Dr.Joe

    As advised I have started Arnica 30c wet dose from this morning. Will arnica help with cellulitis in her legs as well or should I give her something else for that? Each time it flares up she is given a course of a broad spectrum antibiotics.


    • Joe says:

      You must know that giving me nuggets of information of your mother’s critical condition serve only to make my task even more difficult.

      You informed me of her accident when she had bleeding in her brain while I was treating her for her aggressiveness with Arn 10M. I then switched over to Arn 30 to clear the blood and you now state that she suffers from Cellulitis which fortunately is treated with Arn 30 in the WD given thrice daily.

      As you are aware I am still on the Antibiotic and at age 89 I am not in a state to treat her but I feel that I have to do so even in my condition, as to me she is a deserving patient who may not respond to another physician.

      You will stop all other medication and only give her the Arnica 30c in the WD thrice daily and report her response.

  10. Shanthi says:

    Dear Dr.Joe,
    I started my mother on Arnica 30c WD thrice a day from yesterday. She was discharged yesterday and back in the care centre. I have convinced the care takers to continue with the thrice a day Arnica and they agreed to. I shall get a weekly feedback from them and report to you.
    I did not want to overwhelm you with all the minor health issues that crops up now and then, that’s why I didn’t mention it previously. Dementia and the associated psychiatric behaviour patterns is what I want us to focus on now. If cellulitis can also be fixed that will be an additional blessing.I hope you understand my concern.
    The service you are providing to mankind even at the age 89 is simply awesome and very much valued and appreciated. I have spoken about you and your website to all my friends and relatives and they have all seen the magic happening right in front of their eyes in the case of my mother. I pray to God to keep you in good health sothat you are able to continue this service for a few more years.
    Have a relaxing and restful weekend.

    • Joe says:

      It was my chronic cough that was most disconcerting but today I seem to be out of the woods and my coughing spells are far less.

      You will continue the therapy prescribed for your mother perhaps for life but I shall alter the frequency of the dosage as necessary.

      Thank you for your prayers which I reciprocate.

  11. Amlendu Prakash says:

    Respected sir good evening. Sir am suffering from cough/cold sir also my throat is infected. Am prone to catching cold. Sir cold wave or cold atmosphere is not suitable for me. Start headache. Sir can you suggest some medicine, as here in Delhi winter is started. Thanks. Amlendu, Delhi. India

    • Joe says:

      You can use Gelsemium 200 in the Wet dose taken twice daily to help build up your resistance to Colds.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol / Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a dose which is 5ml or a teaspoonful as prescribed.

      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a teaspoonful.

  13. Any effective medicine on Vricos vain problem?

    • Joe says:

      “Any effective medicine on Vricos vain problem?”

      Your post of yesterday on what I presume is Varicose Veins does not give me the essential information that you would normally give a physician during a consultation.

      You must indicate if you are M or F with age, height and weight.

      Describe in detail your ailment and for how long have you suffered from it, and what drugs have you taken?

  14. ashdutta15 says:

    Respected Dr Joe,

    Good evening Sir. I stumbled on to your website while researching some homeopathic remedies and saw the yeoman service you have been providing to humanity and the wealth of information on the site.

    I seek your kind advice for my 48 year old wife who has been suffering from Arthritis for several years now. She used to have inflammation and pain in her joints especially her knee joints for the last 10 years. The condition used to resolve on its own and recur periodically. The joints used to be hot to touch. We consulted many allopathic doctor over the years, RA factot was always normal and only pain killer were prescribed which she never took as she would rather bear the pain. We consulted homeopathic doctors also but condition was not relieved.

    A couple of months back, the pain in the right knee became unbearble. A MRI was done. The report states the following:

    1. Horizontal tear of the body and posterior horn of the medial meniscus
    2. Mucoid degeneration of the anterior cruciate ligament
    3. Minimal joint effusion and a Baker’s cyst
    4. Medial collateral ligament bursitis
    5. Grade 2 to 3 Chondromalacia.Mild to moderate medial compartmental osteo arthritic changes

    My wife is overweight, however she is unable to loose weight. Doctor said that these were changes due to Osteo Arthritis and just prescribed knee braces.

    My wife also has pain in the sciatic nerve right from the thigh to the foot which is aggravated by the pressure the brace exerts on the baker’s cyst on the back of her knee.

    I would be very grateful, if you could suggest some remedy for her. Many thanks in advance.

    • Joe says:

      You have not indicated your wife’s weight and I presume that she is grossly overweight.

      I shall share my default therapy to reduce her weight below:

      The Ultimate Cure for Obesity on:

      This is a post I made on the ABC way back in 2004 on December 25, the day before the Tsunami hit Sri Lanka, a day which will forever will remain in my mind for as long as I live as I was involved in the Homeopathic after care of the many thousands of survivors immediately after the Tsunami when I was joined by members of Homeopaths Without Borders who sent 6 pairs of International Homeopaths to help care for the survivors.

      Your therapy for Obesity will comprise the use of
      Nat Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken thrice daily after meals
      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily before meals.

      Weigh yourself today before you commence on my therapy and report your weight loss weekly when the standard loss which you can expect and has been reported is around 1kg per week.

      You will also do a regular stint of at least 45 minutes of exercise which will be done by you at intensive levels, irrespective of the general feeling of tiredness that you may experience, if you wish to benefit from my Joepathy.

      You will also control your diet, eliminate all fatty food and eat in moderation to ensure that your stomach is filled to a comfortable level.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

      Please follow the following restrictions which are essential to ensure that the remedy prescribed is not antidoted:

      Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

      Report your weight loss weekly when you can expect a drop of at least 1kg per WEEK.

      I shall also share my default therapy for Arthritis and I hope that the 2 prescriptions can help her.

      You are obviously aware that her condition is critical and if you had consulted me a few years ago before she tore her Meniscus, I may have been able to help her better. We will however observe her response in a few weeks and I hope that you will report her response from time to time.

  15. Asma says:

    Hi Joe
    I want to know about the results of Nat phos 6x on my 5 week old baby who seems to be suffering from reflux. She doesn’t seem to be in any pain except she is continuously swallowing liquids and this can be heard. Recently she has started choking. She also gags whilst she is drinking (i am exclusively breastfeeding). I KNOW these are signs of silent reflux but as she does not seem to be in obvious pain would the nat phos still help as it deals with acid. I’m not sure if the acid is hurting her

    • Joe says:

      “I want to know about the results of Nat phos 6x on my 5 week old baby who seems to be suffering from reflux.”

      As far as I am aware, I have not prescribed for her.

      I noticed that you have addressed me by my given name, Joe.

      I do not permit being addressed by name on my website, as the least I can expect from you is that you show some respect in doing so.

      Here in Sri Lanka where I live, we have a modicum of respect for age.
      I am over 89.

  16. Shanthi says:

    Good morning Dr.Joe
    Hope you are feeling much better now.
    My mother who is on Arnica 30WD thrice daily is eating and sleeping well. Only for walking she needs assistance. The agitation and aggression has not come down. I hope it will improve in another 10days or so.
    My friend in NZ with urethral stricture developed sharp pain while passing urine 3days back . She didn’t want to trouble me as I was busy with my mother. This morning she is having severe headache, shivering, bodypain Etc. She is taking the arnica WD daily twice. What should she do? Can it be UTI? Remedy please. Warm regards

    • Joe says:

      I am in office today after an absence of about 10 days and my cough is hardly noticeable. I have however caught another bug, Laryngitis and have lost my voice which is very disconcerting.

      You will have to judge if your mother improves in her condition to the Arnica 30c and compare her response with the Arnica 1M and report her response to me.

      Your NZ case is obviously suffering from UTI and she must take an antibiotic like Amoxil 500mg thrice daily.

  17. Amlendu Prakash says:

    Good morning sir. Am suffering from last 10 days cronic cough running nose . Sir condition is worse in the night. My chest feels is full of cough. Kindly suggest some medicine as am unable to do anything confind to home . 3-4 days back sir you suggested gelsimimum-200 . But no relief sir . Regds, Amlendu Delhi.

    • Joe says:

      Your present condition as described by you is caused by a Virus which has suddenly spread worldwide and is beyond Homeopathic treatment. It is rampant here in Sri Lanka where about 30% of the population is infected

      You will have to be treated with an Antibiotic preferably Amoxil 500mg taken thrice daily for 5 days. You will also have to use copious steam from a boiling electric kettle to help liquify the phlegm which is clogging the lungs and is responsible for your cough.

      You are advised to consult a doctor if possible in a hospital ASAP.
