Treatment of Osteo Arthritis

The remedy I have used very successfully to treat this common ailment which affects over 80% of the population who are over 60 years of age is Argentum Metallicum 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

The majority of patients who have taken this remedy have reported that they observed relief within 36 hours after taking the first dose.

Quite frankly I do not know how this remedy helps to control the pain and eventually cure Arthritis as I do not have the knowledge to do so. All I can state is that about 90% of the patients who use this simple remedy have confirmed that they were helped while many were cured of their chronic Arthritis.

I might mention here that some patients who suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis have also been helped by this same therapy but I cannot vouch for their reports.

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

Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, 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 at least 6 times 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 enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

    I note that you experienced pain in your left knee suddenly just 3 months ago. It is very likely that this may be due to some severe pressure which your knee joint would have experienced like from a jump when the cartilage can tear if you have not maintained yourself in good shape with regular exercise. Please note that it is very important that you commence on a regular exercise program after you knee has healed in your own interest. Walking is excellent but at your age you can slowly go up to a jog.

    You may like to know that at age 82 I exercise daily for at least 45 minutes and sometimes do a slow jog for a few minutes around my garden in Colombo where I live. I also use an exercise cycle when the weather is bad or like today when the IPL Cricket matches are on right now when the Exercise cycle is very convenient.

    Please STOP all other remedies that you are taking today as you have already seen that they have not helped you so far.

    You can use the following remedies instead in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

    Argentum Metallicum 6c…….. To rebuild the Cartilage by increasing the supply of blood to the 2 bones, the Femur and the Tibia through which the Cartilage is repaired. It is interesting to note that there are no blood vessels in the Cartilage.
    Arnica 30c ….. To increase the flow of blood throughout the body and to the damaged Cartilage.

    It is essential that you rest your knee as this is part of the curative therapy. Bed rest is ideal but if this is not convenient you can use a Crutch to take the weight off your knee.

    If all goes well you should experience relief in 2-3 days but it may take a few more days for your knee to heal as this will depend on how bad the injury to your cartilage is.

    Please report progress weekly on my website.

    With regards& wishes for good health,

      I note that you have increased your weight by about 5 Kg during the past 3 months due to lack of exercise.

      You can use Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken thrice daily immediately after meals to help you to reduce your weight which should drop by about 1 Kg per week even without exercise.

      You should hopefully discover that your Osteo Arthritis should respond in a week when you should be able to resume your daily walk as long as you do not experience any added pain and discomfort to your joints.

      Report your weight loss weekly.

  3. Joe says:

    To Tej

    The remedy that will reduce your weight is Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken twice daily immediately after each of 3 meals. You can expect a reduction of up to 1kg per week but this depends on your present weight, presuming that you are overweight.

    Report your weight reduction in 2 weeks.

    • Joe says:

      To Tej

      It is obvious that you are overweight and in your own interest it is essential that you do everything to reduce it ASAP as it may have some bearing on your Thyroid problem.

      You must be warned that Nat Phos 6x will only work to reduce weight if the patient does not take other drugs during this period. One exception however is Arnica which you can take in the Wet dose twice daily.

      It is essential that the patient cooperated by controlling your diet and also exercising daily to sweat it out.

    I try to help patients who present an ailment or disease on my website.
    Skin whitening is not a disease and I regret that I cannot treat it.

    Sir,

    I am 5’5 and my weight is 82 kg as I am suffering from PCOD. Pls suggest me how I can reduce my weight.

    • Joe says:

      Manika

      You state that you are suffering from PCOD but you wish to be treated for Obesity,

      I believe that you are not aware that your Obesity is due to your PCOD and unless steps are taken to treat this condition you cannot expect to reduce your weight.

      If you would like me to treat your PCOD please indicate your assent and I shall list the remedies that can help it.
      Please note however that PCOD is NOT a disease that can be treated in a few weeks or months and it will involve using remedies for months on end to treat it.

      It would be helpful if you can copy any reports you have got from your Gynecologist on your condition to give me some indication of the depth of your disease.

  7. Shaista says:

    I have been reading about your cures and have suggested them to many people. I rally need your help with my case and that of my son aged 24. 6 months age I developed severe pain in my left knee and entire left leg. Misdiagnosed initially with sciatica I was put on rest. I used to walk 5 kilometres a day. The recent correct diagnosis is arthritis of the knee with osteochondroital defect, stage 2, i.e. diminished cartillage. The rest resulted in fybromyalgia. I was given a sleep aid because sleep was impaired. Fybromyalgia has improved but is still concentrated in the left entire leg, pain behind knee and ankle joint and tibia. I took rhus tox 6 c twice a day for a month and that is what helped my fibromyalgia. I tried Ruta 6 c for a week, twice a day for my knee but not much help. From tomorrow I will be starting your system of argentum metallicum 30 c in the wet dose once a day and arnica 30 c at night. Argentum met 6 c not available in Pakistan. I hope this regimen will help. Apart from that I plan to take symphytum 200 once a week and rhus tox 200 once a week. I have been practising homeopathy for a few years and planning to get my degree.

    My son has repeated shoulder dislocations in both arms. I have been giving him ruta 30 once a day. Initially ofcourse I started with arnica. He has to have operations because his is eroded with repeated dislocations. The diagnoses is of loose ligaments. I also mean to start him on argentum metallicum 30 c for building cartillage in the shoulder. After every couple of weeks I try to give him calcarea Fluor 1m.

    Are you in concurrence with my plan for my own cartillage repair and my sons condition? Ofcourse my son is averse to homeopathy but I am trying my best. Since ruta and physio, his condition is better but last dislocation was not going back in without help of a doc so they are suggesting operation.

    • Joe says:

      Shaista

      I do not know if you are M or F and also what your age is. I shall presume that you are F and are around 45 years old. Are you overweight?

      I cannot believe that Arg Met 6c is NOT available in the whole of Pakistan. This potency is essential to help rebuild cartilage. You can also use 3c which is even better. All in the Liquid Dilution.

      If you plan to use my therapy do not use the 2 other remedies you have listed for a month.

      Your son’s dislocation of his shoulder repeatedly is serious and he cannot possibly go through life with this condition. Surgery is the only recourse.

      You can give him Arnica 30c in the Wet dose twice daily for a week prior to surgery and every 2 hours immediately after on the first day and every 3 hours on the second and taper it out to just twice daily thereafter. You will notice that the pain post surgery is controlled in a manner equal to the analgesics they use.

  8. Shaista says:

    Dear doc joe,

    I have ordered the argentum metallicum 6 c. It will take a few weeks. Because of extreme pain, I started using the arg. Met. In 30 c in wet dose twice a day and arnica 30 c. Should I continue? It seems to help for a while although walking a couple of miles daily in the park causes aggravation.
    Are u suggesting I order the arg. Met. In 3c or did u mean 30? I have pinned all my hopes on you so am clarifying. Also, until I get the 3 or 6 do you advise me to continue with the 30c?

    I feel relieved that you are frank enough to suggest the surgery for my son. we still have a month for that. Is there any homeopathic medicine that will correct the erosion of bone and help repair the cartillage and loose ligaments.

    I will try and give him the arnica. He seems the perfect candidate for it anyway. He keeps saying his bed is too hard while it is not.

    Thank you doc Joe. You are a homeopath in the true spirit! Eager to help others in pain and not even asking for the pay. I am hopeful about getting better. I hope the arnica also helps with my hair loss. By the way your right. I am a female, 50 years of age. I am not fat but yes plump. Should lose about 15 to 20 pounds. I do plan to try your remedy of nat. Phos 6x but I thought I should wait and not let anything interfere with the arg. Met. And arnica.

    Many thanks and prayers for you and your family.

    Shaista.

    • Joe says:

      Shiasta

      You can continue to take the Arg Met 30c for a few weeks and report your response. I have prescribed the 6c as some of my patients reported that this potency was more effective than the 30c but since you already have it, you can use it with the Arnica 30c as prescribed twice daily leaving about half hour between each remedy.

      You reported acute pain in your joints and I presume in your knees. You can also add Hypericum 200c in the Wet dose which you can take every 4 hours. You should notice that your pain should reduce in about 20 minutes after you have taken the first dose. Please report your findings for my records.

      You will add Nat Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken immediately after each of 3 meals daily to reduce your weight. Record your weight and report your weekly reduction which should be at least 1kg per week. If your weight does not reduce as it has done with other patients, this can be due to the Arg Met 30c which you must take to help it to increase the thickness of the Cartilage in your knees.

      You will of course actively cooperate by eating smaller meals and avoiding all fats.

      You can also share the same therapy with your son and observe how his shoulder responds.

  9. Shaista says:

    Dear doc Joe,

    As for the pain in my joints, it is a throbbing pain behind my knee which is where the cartillage is diminished. Also it extends to my thigh, down my calf and is most excruciating in the ankle joint of the same left leg. This has all been there for the past 6 months since the cartillage injury possibly because of carrying a heavy load on one day when all this started. My husband thinks the ankle pain may be because of my awkward walking stile since the onset of the arthritis. Certainly it is aggravated after my daily walk of 2 miles in the park. Do you suggest I start using a stationary bike instead?

    I am not so comfortable using the hypericum since whenever I have taken it in the past, I immediately have a burning rash on my face. Would ruta 6 be helpful for the ankle pain?

    Befor consulting you I have also tried Reckeweg R 73 which contains arg. Met. And R 11 which contains rhus tox. Rhus tox agrees very well with me because of the fibromyalgia.

    I am bothering you with all this information at this initial stage but hope to be off your back soon. Presently, I am taking arg. Met 30 twice a day in the wet dose as well as arnica 30. I have also bought the natrum phos 6 x. May I take the ruta for my ankle as well?

    If arg. Met. 3 c is available in another city, should I send for it and use it instead of the 30?

    Thank you for your prompt replies. I am so grateful. Our national poet Iqbal wrote in Urdu. This is prayer, this is religion, this is faith. That in this world man should be helpful to one another.

    Most sincerely,

    Shaista

    • Joe says:

      Shaista

      You will please STOP all exercise for a week or longer to enable the cartilage to regrow internally. Bed rest is best if you can afford the luxury. Walking 2 miles daily must be stopped and I was not aware that this is your normal daily exercise routine. Your ankle pain is not directly connected to arthritis but your husband’s observation that it may be due to your awkward gait is perhaps the answer. I was not aware that you were suffering from acute arthritis which resulted after carrying some heavy weight. The pain you now have is directly connected to the lack of lubrication between the joints which is provided by the cartilage and you must permit the Arg Met to promote it to grow back again in a manner that any drug or other Homeopathic remedy cannot do.
      You must be patient and take all the load off the knee and STOP all unnecessary walking.

      How old are you and what is your weight and height? If you are overweight you can use Nat Phos 6x to reduce your weight but this is a shy remedy and does not usually work if the patient is taking other remedies. Arnica however does not seem to hinder it from working to reduce weight.

      Use a recumbent stationary cycle instead as the pressure is not on the joint and you will still get the exercise. I use a True recumbent exercise cycle in my home every evening for half hour and do not have any arthritis or other impediment.

      I note that you are taking Argentum Metallicum 30c. I prescribed 6c as I have found some years ago that the 6 is more effective than the 30. I have not prescribed the 3c but if this is not available, you must stop the 30 and use the 6c. Stop all other combination remedies if you are using them today. You must use the Arnica 30c as prescribed. The 2 remedies work jointly to heal Artthrhtis.

      List ALL remedies you are taking today and the frequency.

      Thank you for that quote from Poet Iqbal. He has epitomized my philosophy as I pray through healing all who seek my assistance.

      I am convinced that God heals me in return by maintaining me in my state of wellness at age 83.

  10. Shaista says:

    Dear doc Joe,

    You asked me to list all the meds I am taking. Since Monday 11th I have started arg. Met. 30 twice a day and arnica 30 once in the night as it makes me sleepy. All in wet dose. From tomorrow God willing I will get arg. Met. 6 from somewhere. It is a Swiss company. I have also started the natrum phos 6x. I have been put on a light sleep aid 10 mg of amitriptilline because of my fibromyalgia.

    When I first wrote to you I mentioned that I had the knee cartillage degeneration as well as fibromyalgia which started because of the extended rest period. My body is used to the exercise. Since today as per your instructions I have stopped walking in the park and am using the stationary bike. I also told you that it was the rhus tox 6 c that had helped my fibromyalgia. Having taken that for a month I was asking you if I could substitute that for the ruta 6c which might also take care of my ankle pain.

    Anyway, presently I am only on the meds I have mentioned in the first paragraph of this post. By and by I hope to get of the amitriptilline with the help of the arnica. Apparantly the sleep disorder along with the trigger pain points are sure shot symptoms of the fibromyalgia which is better now. Since a month I gave up the anti inflammatories for the arthritis and am eager to recover completely with your remedy.

    Thanks and God bless

      I was concerned to learn that you are taking Amitriptyline together with my medication. I fear that this powerful drug will antidote the Homeopathic remedies I have prescribed for you and have to inform you that I am only wasting my time if you continue to take them in the future.

      Here is an article on this drug:

      Why is this medication prescribed?

      Amitriptyline is used to treat symptoms of depression. Amitriptyline is in a class of medications called tricyclic antidepressants. It works by increasing the amounts of certain natural substances in the brain that are needed to maintain mental balance.

      Do you have symptoms of Depression?
      Is there any valid reason for your doctor/s to prescribe this drug for your Fibromyalgia?

      Please make up your mind if you wish to continue with my therapy and STOP all other drugs you are taking currently.

  11. Shaista says:

    Dear doc Joe,

    The amitriptilline was prescribed to me because I would wake up repeatedly at night which was a symptom of fibromyalgia. It was prescribed 3 months ago by Dr huskissan in London. He is a published rheumatologist. He said I have 2 problems. Firstly the dismissed cartillage arthritis in my knee and the fibromyalgia. I asked him the same question as yours about the amytriptilline. He said it is used for depression in a very high dose, 100 or 150 mg but at 10 mg it is merely a sleep aid to be used for a minimum of 3 months until I am over the fibromyalgia. This has abated somewhat.

    I am very concerned about relieving my arthritis. I am in great pain, yet I have given up my anti inflammatory for more than a month. It you touch the side of my left knee it is warmer than my right. When I take a little turmeric in a little hot milk, I feel relieved.

    I sincerely want to go ahead with your system which I had also studied on my own some time back but I didn’t know wet dose way. I was too scared to overdose myself with arg. Met.

    Since 3 months are now over and today I have managed to procure arg. Met 6 made by a Swiss company herbamed, I will start it tomomorrow and discard the 30c. I will try and sleep with the arnica and if I wake up I suppose I will take arnica again unless you suggest something else.

    You have spent a lot of time and effort on me and I am eager to carry through. I have stopped the walk, I use the stationary cycle for a short while and everything else as you have instructed. I am not depressed. I regularly play the piano taught to me by excellent qualified pianist from Sri Lanka. As you know I was walking 5 kilometres daily in the park.

    I am scared of waking up repeatedly in the night. As you know at age 50 menopausal symptoms also don’t help us women. Please advise and I will inform you of my progress.

    Many thanks and regards

      I note that you have completed your course of the drugs and the amitripilline prescribed for your Arthritis and ‘depression’ prescribed by your published rheumatologist.

      You can now safely embark on my Joepathy therapy which I shall note below:

      Arthritis: Argentum Metallicum 6c
      Sleep: Arnica 30c

      Both remedies to be taken twice daily in the Wet dose.

      I shall copy my default therapy below:

      If the patient’s Osteo Arthritis has not affected the Meniscus there is every possibility that Argentum Metallicum 6c in the Wet dose can cure the patient of the pain associated with Arthritis. It is the grating of the 2 bones, the Tibia and the Femur without the cushion of the Cartilage that results in Osteo Arthritis and relief is usually noticed on the third day after the commencement of the therapy.

      A matter that amazes me is that there is no blood supply to the Cartilage which is essential for repairing and regrowing the Cartilage in the joints. How then can the cartilage regrow and thereby reduce and eventually eliminate the pain associated with Arthritis?

      I have helped many patients who were on a daily dose of various analgesics which only served to deaden the pain temporarily but not CURE the condition.

  12. Shaista says:

    Dear doc joe,

    Tried not to bother u too much. I am continueing to take arg met 6c and arnica 30 c in the wet dose twice a day. Also natrum phos 6x. I have stopped extensive walks in the park and use stationary bike. It has been two weeks. There is definitely a slow but sure improvement in the knee arthritis. It is slow.

    Symptoms of fibromyalgia have re surfaced after diminishing the amytriptilline which u might recall was given in very low dosage to help the muscles sleep at night. Obviiously sleep is disturbed now. Arnica helps but I still get up in 4 hours. Ankle pain is also reduced but continues to resurface. As u must know fibrimyalgia patients can’t seem to handle stress.

    So, while following your remedy for knee arthritis to the letter, would u like to recommend anything to me for the fibro? 3 months ago, it was rhus tox 6 c that had helped. Or maybe u might prefer ruta keeping in mind my knee joepathy.

    This is my update after over a week. Do advise.

    Thanks, with gratitude

    • Joe says:

      Shaista

      Please understand that a patient’s request for help is never a “bother” to me.

      Glad to note that your present condition has improved due to your cutting out the long walks you used to do which you replaced by using an exercise cycle which I hope is the Recumbent type. Please confirm.

      Your muscles will ‘sleep’ without any drug. The Arnica taken just before sleep will substitute for it. When you wake up in 4 hours take another dose of Arnica 30 and report your response.

      You can add:

      Ferrum Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken thrice daily.

      This Biochemic Cell Salt will increase the oxygenation of your blood and should at least theoretically , help in your recovery.

      Since you feel that Rhus Tox 6c may help you can take it twice daily in the Wet dose and report.

  13. Shaista says:

    Dear doc joe,
    I felt that my fibromyalgia symptoms had returned with the weaning off of low dose amytriptilline. After confirming with you I started taking rhus tox along with my usual arg. Met and arnica all in the wet dose. Also nat.phos dry for weight loss. However rhus tox 30, since 6 was not available seems to have increased the pain behind the knee. It’s throbbing and seems the muscles twitch and contract. From tomorrow I will just continue with the arg. Met and arnica at the exclusion of rhus.tox. I was so hopeful because in earlier forums you used to prescribe the rhus. Or would you suggest I substitute it with ruta because I have the pain going down and locking into the ankle. I was really hoping to be better by now.

    Thanks and best regards, Shaista

    • Joe says:

      Shaista

      I have no objection to your changing from Rhus T to Ruta as you have reported that the RT has not helped you and you feel that the Ruta may do so.

      You will have to exercise the damaged leg and also massage it to improve the circulation to help in the recovery process.

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

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, 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 at least 6 times 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 enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

    She is not suffering from Arthritis

      Jeys

      I have read up on the Sacroiliac Joint problem and feel that the therapy that I have prescribed for Arthritis can help her.

      There is no specific therapy or remedy for this problem in Homeopathy and I would like her to follow my instructions for a week and if after that period there is no improvement she can stop it.

    and am feeling so weak dull minded and depressed is this a symptom of OA, Kindly suggest if i have to use any remedy for this

      “iam feeling better, but present in knee pains, Shall i continue using these remedies”
      In what way precisely, do you feel better?

      “feeling so weak dull minded and depressed is this a symptom of OA, ”
      Be reassured that this sensation is NOT due to OA and also not due to the 2 remedies that you are taking today and which you will continue to take for many months into the future.

    Dear doc joe,
    I have been away with my son for his shoulder surgery. After one month of arg met and arnica I was was not much better. To look after my son, my husband made me have an injection if lubricant. I was ok for 2 weeks and am now again in pain. MRI reveals 2 tears in miniscus. Now what do u advise. Uric acid is 5.6, which is on the high side.
    Best regards, Shaista

    • Joe says:

      Shaista

      I am surprised that the injection of some steroid into your knee lasted just 2 weeks as this should usually give you some relief for about 6 months.

      I shall copy below my default therapy for Osteo Arthritis:
      The 2 remedies are:

      Argentum Metallicum 6c
      Arnica 30c

      Both remedies to be taken in the Wet dose twice daily leaving about an hour between remedies.

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

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.

      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

      The remedy for Gout which usually results from high Uric Acid is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken thrice daily after meals.

      Report progress weekly.

    DR. Joe
    Before using therapy i use to feel so much of pain in shoulders, elbows, knees and back, but now i feel very good when compared to past(decrease in pain) in shoulders, elbows and back. but pain in knees are same i think i have to use it for along so that i can relieve from that pain also. please prescribe me a remedy for weakness

    With Regards
    Eshwar

    • Joe says:

      Eshwar

      Glad to learn that my therapy has helped you to alleviate the pain you experienced in your body.

      You stated that the level of your pain had reduced but you then continue to state:
      “but pain in knees are same i think i have to use it for along so that i can relieve from that pain also”

      You will have to be more precise in your statements as although I seem to have helped you by reducing your pain, you still continue to complain even when you have obviously found relief after using my therapy aka “Joepathy”

      I would like to have a history of your OA with dates of when you first experienced pain in your joints and how long it took before my therapy helped you.

      Please give me more details of the WEAKNESS that you now complain of.
      Also what drugs, if any, are you taking today other than the remedies that I prescribed?

  23. eshwar says:

    Dr Joe.
    I Mean Pain in Knees are more when compared to other joints, so i mentioned like that.
    Sir at first it was diagnosed as R.A by a doctor who is a orthopedician at the age of 20 when am suffering from back pain and i used allopathy for a year, but it is does nothing then i started using homeopathy from then i felt very well, after using 3 years i stopped it when the pains are gone.(i remember some of the medicines like rhustox,ruta,cal phos, cal flour)
    I completely stopped using any medicine coz of my job purpose i used to shift place to place regularly and am unable to contact any doctor. I was completely treated as R.A patient. Then on internet search i found your treatment joepathy is very effective with arthritis and reported you. After that it is diagnosed as O.A.

    WEAKNESS:
    Iam feeling very weak and nervous from last 2 months, my head nerves are paining, if i worked heavily infront of system. Head is feeling heavy and dull when i woke up in the morning from last 3 days.
    is this because of poor diet?
    Kindly prescribe a remedy to recover soon

    With best Regards
    Eshwar

    • Joe says:

      Eshwar

      You will continue with my therapy for OA and I am confident that it should help with your ailment.

      You have stated:
      “is this because of poor diet? ”

      If you suspect that your present diet is not satisfactory, you will have to take steps to change it and ensure that you eat sufficient proteins and other food that will help you to overcome your OA.

      I cannot cure your OA unless you will eat the food necessary for your body to heal the problem.

      You stated:
      “Iam feeling very weak and nervous from last 2 months, my head nerves are paining, if i worked heavily infront of system. Head is feeling heavy and dull when i woke up in the morning from last 3 days.”

      It seems to me that your problem is that you do not eat the correct food.

  24. eshwar says:

    Dr Joe,
    Thank you for your advice, surely ill continue the theraphy.
    i have changed my diet and eating more protein food and you gave me the hope for healthy living.
    Sir i have a question
    is it safe using plastic bottles for wet dose.

    May i know your birthday

    With best regards
    Eshwar

    • Joe says:

      Eshwar

      I hope that my therapy will help to CURE your OA.
      Please keep me advised of your progress.

      Glass bottles are the best but they are not freely available. PET bottles are sold in the supermarkets and I use a brand where the water is sourced from Deep Bore Wells around 200Ft below ground level. As long as you do not store the water near an open window which can attract UV radiation, bottled water in plastic bottles is OK.

      I was born on October 19 1929.
      I will be completing my 83rd year on this date in October.

      What made you ask for my birthday?

  25. eshwar says:

    Dr Joe,
    Progress after 25 days, pains in all joints slowing down, but pain will come and go in some joints.
    doc am having symtoms of goiter from 2 weeks at first i think it is because of weakness, but unable to swallow sometimes, feeling heavy in bottom of the neck, breathing is difficult when eating food or cool drinks/water.
    Kindly give me some remedy to control this

    Dr joe,
    I want to celebrate our doctors birthday who is helping millions of people around the world with the great joepathy.

    With Regards
    eshwar

    • Joe says:

      Eshwar

      Glad to learn that your: “Progress after 25 days, pains in all joints slowing down, but pain will come and go in some joints.”

      This fact proves that my therapy is effective for both OA and RA. I was not aware of this fact for many years till I prescribed it for a known RA case and she confirmed, like you, that she experienced considerable relief from her joint and other pains.

      With regard to your Hypothyroidism, you MUST consult a doctor to first diagnose and later treat your Goiter. If as you state you find some difficulty in swallowing, you may have to brave surgery to have the enlarged Thyroid Gland removed.

      I regret that I will not be able to help you.

  26. eshwar says:

    Dear Doctor,

    I consult doctor regarding lump in my throat, this all because of gastric problem;
    1)
    The symptoms are burning stomach, dizziness, breathing weakness, and lump in throat, sometimes head ache.
    Kindly suggest me a theraphy for it to cure.

    2)
    Sir,
    Can i use hair therapy which you have indicated for us, with my treatment

    With Regards
    Eshwar

    • Joe says:

      Eshwar

      I shall copy my default therapy for GERD which I feel should help you within a couple of hours to settle the burning in your throat and stomach.

      It is very likely that you suffer from Hyperacidity or Gastritis, aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease) and I shall copy my default therapy that has helped hundreds of patients to overcome this disease for which doctors usually prescribe PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs which are dangerous and can cause many other more serious problem when used in the long term.

      You will hopefully discover that my therapy aka “Joepathy” will help you within the hour after you have taken your first dose after a meal.

      The remedies you will order are as follows:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals
      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

      Please observe the following simple rules:

      Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.

      It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

      No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

      If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals, this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner lining and the wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana between meals to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall which results in a stomach ache which in some cases can be acute.

      You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily. It is important to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid 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 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 every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

      It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which s/he may be taking for this ailment.

  27. eshwar says:

    Dear doc,
    I want to get treatment for my grand mother through joepathy, i believe that it will cure my grand ma problem.
    she undergone a hip surgery as she fell down on floor resulting in a hip injury.
    it has been six months as she unable to walk, and still feeling pain. She was shocked when she fell down and very nervous to walk
    Patient details:
    Age 61
    Weight 50kgs

    Kindly suggest a treatment for her

    With regards,
    eshwar

    • Joe says:

      Eshwar

      Your grandma should have been able to walk within a few weeks of her surgery which I presume was a Hip Replacement if it was done by an experienced surgeon.

      The fact that she is very nervous to walk has to be addressed ASAP by consulting the same surgeon and if all is OK you will have to inform me the reason for her reluctance to walk.

      Does she experience pain when she walks?
      Dose she present Diabetes and/or Hypertension?
      Dose she suffer from any other ailments like Gastritis?
      What is her height and weight?

  28. eshwar says:

    Doctor,

    She dont have bp, gastrisis, or diabetis
    She is having pain all over leg and dont even try to walk on her own without support of the stand, my mother is so much worried about her. Kindly suggest treament for her i can take care of her health with the hope of joepathy, and i strongly believe that our doctor joe will help
    Height: 5.2
    Weight:52 kgs
    Thank you doctor
    With regards

    • Joe says:

      Eshwar

      Your mother’s case can be considered as chronic as she has according to your report, suffered unceasing pain after her surgery. You have yet not stated whether this was Hip Replacement surgery.

      You can give her the following remedies all in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

      Arnica 30c To increase the blood flow in the body in the hope that this can help her damaged muscles to heal.
      Hypericum 200 to be taken every 4 hours to deaden the pain.

      Report her response weekly.

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

      I shall copy below my default therapy for Arthritis, Rheumatoid and Osteo which has helped many patients in the past.
      Please let me know how she responds weekly and you may like to know that many patients have reported that they felt relief in a week.

      I have helped many patients who were on a daily dose of various analgesics which only served to deaden the pain temporarily but not CURE the condition. Some patients have reported that they experienced relief from the pain they suffered for many years in the short space of just 48 hours and it is my hope that you too will experience this same blessed relief from your pain.

      The 2 remedies are:

      Argentum Metallicum 6c
      Arnica 30c

      Both remedies to be taken in the Wet dose twice daily leaving about an hour between remedies.

    My father aged 70 years is suffering from severe knee pain and swelling in knee joints. He is very active person and goes for walk daily for 30 minutes. Since past 6-8 months he is having knee joint pain and it is becoming severe.

    He has recently started taking Argentum Mettalicum 30c and Ruta 200 in small tablet form where the liquid form is added to the tablet. Can you continue these 2-medications or should he be taking argentum mettalicum in 6c dose?

    Also should he take Rhustox for pain relief as he is suffering from severe pain in the knee joins and the thighs region.

    Please advice which medication is best for him and how long should he continue the medication.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Joe says:

    dear sir,

    regards

    • Joe says:

      It seems to me that you are not receiving my replies to your many posts for some reason I do not understand as all my other patients do not have any problems. I shall copy my reply to your post of yesterday:

      “Submitted on 2014/06/26 at 4:14 PM | In reply to badri rimal.

      You now know the reason for my reticence to OK your request to add to the 2 remedies I had already prescribed for your Prostate (Not PROSTRATE) problems.

      It is very likely that your Prostate Gland is over 50gm and you are advised to consult a Urologist and get a full report including the Size and also request a PSA test to assess the problem more fully. This report should read up to 4 and if it is over this reading you will have to get a scan done and depending on the scan a Biopsy may be indicated. You will have to contact a large hospital like Apollo who can carry out these specialized tests.

      In the meanwhile, you will STOP the Arg Met and only stay with the Arnica and the Conium as prescribed.

      Please remember to SHAKE the bottles before taking every dose as this makes the remedy more powerful.”

      It is very likely that the reason for your problem today is due to the antidoting of the Arnica/Conium therapy by the Arg Met which I reluctantly prescribed for your Arthritis. It is up to you to decide if you wish to treat your Prostate or your Arthritis.

      The problem you have is that you contacted me so very late with your multiple problems and treating you will prove to be very difficult.

    Can you please help, i have pain in my left knee for about a year now, its dull aching kind of pain more on bending knee, usually increases as the day passes.
    I had an MRI which shows a tear in medial meniscus, I have been advised meniscectomy but i don’t want to go for the operation.
    Is there any remedy in Homeopathic which can repair the tear, if any please help. I shall be grateful.

    regards

    • Joe says:

      I regret to inform you that there is no alternative to Meniscectomy which is done Arthroscopically to remove the torn Meniscus which is the cause of your pain. You do not need to have any apprehension about this surgery as it will be done under a local anesthetic by an experienced surgeon and you will be OK in a few days.

      You can use Arnica 30c in the Wet dose thrice daily to help both before and after surgery.

      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 at least 6 times 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 enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

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

    Sir,

    Suffering from Osteo Arthritis. Can i use both Argentum Metallicum 6c (2 doses day time after meals) and Arica-30 (one dose at bed time) in wet doses ?
    Thanks and Regards

      I discovered that 3 persons:

      Pulwinder
      Channe
      Harmesh

      have been presenting a variety of ailments to me on 3 computers since June 2104 and I have been patiently prescribing to each.

      I have checked back on your email address and discovered that all of you use the same email address:
      hm.properties@yahoo.com

      Can you enlighten me on the reason why you all use the same email address to present a multitude of ailments to me?

      Is it because I try to help suffering humanity at my advance age of 86 without charging a fee for my service?

    • Joe says:

      I shall copy below my default therapy for Arthritis which has helped many patients who were on a daily dose of various analgesics which only served to deaden the pain temporarily but not CURE the condition. Some patients have reported that they experienced relief from the pain they suffered for many years in the short space of just 48 hours and it is my hope that you too will experience this same blessed relief from your pain.

      The 2 remedies are:

      Argentum Metallicum 6c
      Arnica 30c

      Both remedies to be taken in the Wet dose twice daily leaving about an hour between remedies.

      You will not take any drugs when you start my therapy.

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

  49. Amit says:

    Hi Mr Joe. I am writing from India and suffering from acute OCD for 30 years. My symptoms of ocd occurred with the fear that my mother would die after one of my cousin sister said so just to insil fear in me. After that symptoms like washing hands began. Forceful illogical thoughts come to my mind which I can hardly control. These harmful thoughts like I other members of my family would die of cancer comes frequently. I am deeply religious and pray a lot, but prayers become negative when destructive thoughts come to mind. Recently, a homoeopath prescribed staphysgria, but it never worked. Another doc suggested argentum nat and aurum met. I am a bit confused and at times lose faith in treatment methods. Biggest worry is how to stop forceful and repetative destructive thoughts. Plz suggest.

    Dear Dr Joe

    Please can you help with my symptoms. I have intense lower back pain and stiffness. There is pain around the hips I think it’s nerve pain it feels sore and almost burning. Sometimes there is also pain and stiffness in my knees. My shoulders are also very stiff and I have limited range of movement in both shoulders (previously I had a left frozen shoulder). I feel better for stretching exercise and walking but I can never get rid of the pain. My sleep is less than it should be as I usually wake too early. I have food sensitivities and certain foods increase my pain – eg all grains, and cows milk. I do t have a normal amount of energy. Generally I am fairly upbeat and not prone to depression but my mind is overactive. The main problem I would like help with is the pain and stiffness. I don’t have arthritis and there is no real diagnosis from the doctor for me. In the past I had chronic fatigue so these symptoms may be due to the vague condition of fibromyalgia – who knows! Please can you help me? Yours with gratitude, Jo (female aged 60)

  52. Sonia Hudson says:

    Dear Mr De Livera,
    i am 64 years old female, and I had an arthroscopy in February 2016 due to a tear in the medial meniscus in my right knee. The pain was still making me immobile in August 2016. My surgeon did not prescribe any medication and advised against exercise except hydrotherapy. Despite being on a diet, I put on weight 4kgs due to lack of exercise. I weighed 85kgs and my GP said I must lose weight, he suggested a stationary bike which I hired. Even on the first exercise with very little resistance on the bike, my knee swelled and my husband did not want me to use it again. I have just retired after a 35 year career as a retail executive, and I desperately want to travel the world, but I can’t even go to the shopping mall, as I have to abandon my trip after 30 minutes due to the pain in my knee. Desperate to lose the weight to help my knee, I had liposuction of the abdominal area in August – the surgeon said I could lose 4-6 kgs. This was extremely painful, and after 2 months I have only lost 3 kgs. I have sought a 2nd opinion with a knee specialist and have been put on Mobic 15 mgs daily with Nexium 40 mgs daily. I am also exercising in the local swimming pool with a physiotherapist twice a week. I believe in the physiotherapy, but the meds don’t help a great deal. After more XRays and MRI, the new specialist tells
    me that I have a degenerative tear of the medial meniscus with degenerative changes in the lateral meniscus of the right knee. I also have medial and patella femoral arthritis of the right knee, and soft tissue irritation and inflammation, namely per bursitis and ITB distal irritation and tightness.I have followed your website and have started on the NAT PHOS 6X tissue salts 2 x three times daily after food. I would like your advice on the homeopathic remedies I should take rather than treat myself from what I have read of ARG MET 6C and ARN 6C. I am well used to taking homeopathic remedies, and rarely take allopathic medicines except Stilnox for insomnia (only 1 x week). I have frequent urination especially at night, waking 4-6 times to pass water. I have found that in the past diet Coca
    Cola (only 200mls daily) can be a cause of the frequent urination, but i haven’t been drinking this lately. I have read that organic cider vinegar can help as I do have some acidity in my body (and probably candida), but I don’t want to take this until I have had your advice. With kindest regards, Sonia

    • Joe says:

      You are obviously overweight at 85kg even though you did not state your height.

      You cannot drink Cocacola DAILY and expect to sleep deeply. The ingredients used in its manufacture will prevent you from doing so as they are all stimulants. The sugar substitute has been known to cause cancer.

      “I have frequent urination especially at night, waking 4-6 times to pass water”
      You must consult a Urologist to identify the reason for your doing so.

      Your liposuction experiment “This was extremely painful, and after 2 months I have only lost 3 kgs. I have sought a 2nd opinion with a knee specialist and have been put on Mobic 15 mgs daily with Nexium 40 mgs daily.”
      STOP THESE DRUGS as they are obviously doing you harm.

      You can replace the Nexium with Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken thrice daily after every meal. I shall copy my default therapy for GERD below:

      It is very likely that you suffer from Hyperacidity or Gastritis, aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease) and I shall copy my default therapy that has helped hundreds of patients to overcome this disease for which doctors usually prescribe PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs which are dangerous and can cause many other more serious problem when used in the long term.

      You will hopefully discover that my therapy aka “Joepathy” will help you within 24 hours after you have taken your first dose after a meal.

      The remedies you will order are as follows:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 2-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 3 meals.
      This remedy accelerates the passage of food down the gut and prevents the formation of acid which would otherwise reflux causing GERD.

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.
      This remedy works to repair the damaged Esophagus which has metastasised to resemble the gut to deal with the Hcl refluxed into it causing severe distress. Arnica works with the Nat Phos to speedily cure the problem.

      You can also take a PROBIOTIC like Bifilac dose 1 capsule for a week. A Probiotic will help by changing the balance of the Bacteria in the gut and will contribute to your cure and help to ensure that your problem does not recur. After your problem with GERD is stabilised you can take the Arnica in the Wet dose nightly before bed and the Probiotic daily for life. You do not need to take Nat Phos daily but you will keep a stock to be used whenever you feel uncomfortable after a meal when you will take 2-3 tablets as necessary.

      Please observe the following simple rules:

      Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.

      It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

      No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

      If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals, this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner lining and the wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana between meals to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall which results in a stomach ache which in some cases can be acute.

      You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily. It is important to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid 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 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 every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

      It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which s/he may be taking for this ailment.
      Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

      You are fortunate that you only suffered from the pain as I know a patient who almost lost her life after this surgery as this was followed by Cardiac Asthma which caused her lungs to fill up with liquid which was later drained out to save her life.

      Did you suffer from any Fever in the past due to Dengue or Chikungunya?

      Where do you live?

    • Joe says:

      I re-read my prescription for you and discovered that I had failed to mention that Nat Phos 6x will REDUCE your weight by 1kg per WEEK. i

      I would like to have your confirmation in about 2 weeks on how much weight it has helped you to shed.
      It is understood of course that you will observe the other pointers that I have prescribed to enable you to shed weight.

  53. Sonia Hudson says:

    Thank you for your reply Dr. Joe. I had already stopped Nexium and have been taking Nat Phos 6X 2 three times daily for 4 days.
    I do not have a gastric complaint, Nexium was prescribed as a precautionary measure because I was prescribed Mobic.
    I had stopped Mobic (anti inflammatory), at the same time as I stopped Nexium, but the knee pain returned even during the night. So I took Arthrexin (Indocid) for the pain This was also prescribed in case Mobic did not work, and Arthrexin did work. When I read the side effect of the medications, I noted that Mobic and Nexium can give urinary frequency, which is why I stopped them.
    Having stopped the 2 medications, Nexium 4 days ago, and and Mobic 2 days ago, I now wake only 3 or 4 times a night to urinate. I feel sure that this will decrease as time goes on.
    I have stopped the coca cola.
    I thought you might advise me to take ARG MET 6C for the knee pain, so that I may stop Arthrexin?
    Dr. Joe, is there anything you can advise for the repair of the meniscus tear and the pain in the knee from osteo arthritis please?
    I live in Australia.
    I very much appreciate your kind advice, and admire the help you are giving to so many people who are suffering from illness, kind regards Sonia

  54. Sonia Hudson says:

    Apologies Dr Joe, I did not answer your question. I have always enjoyed good health, and have not suffered from Dengue or Chikungunya Fever, regards Sonia

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that you have studied the cases I have treated on my Website.

      You are already taking Nat Phos 6x which helps Gout and the Argentum Metallicum 6c will help the Meniscus in some manner that is mysterious to grow and I have had many reports that it works. You will make the Wet dose and take it twice daily.

      You can help the pain by taking Hypericum 200c in the Wet dose as an analgesic, every 3-4 hours.

      STOP all drugs to enable the Homeopathy to work.

  55. Roger says:

    I’ve read many parts of this thread and appreciate your time to help people.
    If you can please clarify a couple things for me.
    First, about me. I’m 56 and about 50lbs over weight. I have osteoarthritis in my left knee and I believe a little in my ankle. This was due to an automobile accident many years ago that busted up my leg and knee. I still have a rod in my lower leg. I had an x-ray taken a couple years ago and the doc said it was bone on bone in my knee.
    Over the past few years the pain in my knee has slowly increased. I’ve tried so many supplements to remedy. It’s hard to sleep comfortable at night. The knee is very stiff after sitting a while.
    I eat fairly healthy, have green drink smoothies most mornings and evenings with meals. I get moderate exercise.
    Pet this thread, I have ordered Arg Met 6c as well as Nat Phos for the weight. I’ve read to take Arg Met before and after meals. Which one is better?
    I’ve read that these may antidote themselves if taken as the same time. Is that true? If so, which one is best to start with? And for how long each?
    I do drink beer a couple times a week. Is this going to antidote the remedy all the time?
    Thank you again for your time.

      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.

    Hello Sir,
    I have chronic spinal disorder since 8 years after my 1st child was born. I have pain in lower back which was occasional for many years. But since my 2nd delivery ie 2014 onwards it has become permanent . I got x ray done which shows spine has flattened where it is supposed to be curved. Now since 2-3 months my neck has also become stiff. I always feel dizzy while standing and walking due to it.
    My second problem is GERD which has also intensified since 3months. I am on your default therapy….nat phos and arnica along with probiotics. I feel very bloted but still very hungry and choke while eating and feel breathless for few seconds. Such episodes are horrifying. Eating has become a task for me. It’s been 20 days since I started your therapy regularly and initialy found lot of improvement but the choking is coming back again. Want to give it more time to see results but shall I introduce Robinia P ? Feeling very heavy in stomach although there has been no constipation. I am not able to take care of my kids alone due to all these health issues. Please help.

    • Joe says:

      I regret that I cannot help your spinal problem which is obviously chronic and will need treatment from an orthopedic surgeon.

      I note that you are already using my default therapy for GERD but that it has not helped you. It is possible that you suffer from excess secretion of Hcl acid and you will add:
      Robinia Pseudacacia 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. You will continue to take the Arnica 30c and will leave half hour between remedies.

    can I ask about my husbands osteoarthritis. We have tried so many remedies and after xrays the chiropractor wouldn’t touch him. He has very jagged left hip joint. Really damgaged cartilage. His Dad broke his low back when he was 10 and his low back is deformed. He has lots of sciatic pain. He was doing well after taking some remedies for 11 months but then with age it seems to have continued to deteriorate. His thigh muscle has grown back some so I know its better but he can’t live like this. I was giving him arnica 1M on a hike alternating rhus tox 1 M every 30 minutes. (arnica 30 helps but not enough) He still ended up in pain. I am trying some gemmotherapy this month and my husband says if it doesn’t help he is getting a hip replacement. I want so bad for him to get better. Hip replacements sometimes don’t work and sometimes cause other problems. Maybe I am worried for nothing but I believe the body can heal! Would argentum met 6c still possibly help or should I just accept that it is too far gone?

    • Joe says:

      “Would argentum met 6c still possibly help or should I just accept that it is too far gone?”

      You should have given him this remedy in the first place long before you gave the “arnica 1M on a hike alternating rhus tox 1 M every 30 minutes.” This is virtually a dangerous combination which should not be given in the manner that you have.

      Let us hope that Argentum Metallicum 6c and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose can help him in a few days before you opt for a Hip replacement surgery.

    what homoeopathy medicine should i take?

    right now i am taking RUTA G. 30x but i dont see any result?

      It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

      No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

      If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals, this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner lining (Villa) in the wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana between meals to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall which results in a stomach ache which in some cases can be acute.

      You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily. It is important to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid 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 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 every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

      It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which s/he may be taking for this ailment.
      Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

      ARTHRITIS

      You will use Argemtum Metallicum 30c in the Wet dose twice daily as there is a possibility of the 6c causing some other complications.

        hello joe,

        i am grateful for your reply. i dont doubt your prescription but there are just some doubts.

        should i continue with Ruta G.? actually i read above that i need to stop all other ailments.
        what complication would Arg M. 6c create? isnt 30c more powerful than 30c?

        i would appreciate a reply, sorry for being troublesome.

          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 90 YEARS old.

          I have already prescribed for you but feel free to self medicate but stop bugging me in future.

    Dear Dr Joe De Silva,

    I was helped after my TURP operation about 12 years back when on reading your post and used Arnica 30C and was cured of incontinence of urine.
    Now I request for your help.I am 76 years old.Now I am suffering from pain in my ankle. From X ray I have come to know that gap between the joint has vanished most probably due to cartilage wear.The doctors have told me that nothing could be done now.As such it is Osteo Arthritis as per your post.

    From this post I come to know that Argentum Metalliun 6C(AA) in wet dose should be used.

    Will it be OK .

    I shall be most grateful for the advice.

    Major SS Bhatia

      “Dear Dr Joe De Silva,”

      Please note that my name is Joe De Livera.

      You may also like to know that I celebrated my 90th Birthday on October 19, a few days ago. I believe that God has blessed me with my relatively long life to help suffering humanity and it is interesting to record that I do NOT take any drugs except on a SOS basis.

      I looked back ony your posts and discovered that I had helped you with my “Joepathy” on 2017/11/14 at 4:57 when you stated:
      I can not thank you enough.After my TURP I started Arnica 30C to cure my incontinence and other problems.I became OK.That is few years back. Now I am again troubled by frequent urine problem and have started Arnica again.
      My grand daughter is having ADHD.After reading your column I think Arnica 1M may be helpful in her Memory problem.
      It is possible that Arnica 30c may not help you in the future and you may consider using Arnica 6c which is more powerful and will help you better.
      You can use Argentum Metallicum 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily for your suspected Arthritis in your ankle and report if it helps you. It is rarely that your ankle will present Arthritis as this is reported more in the knee first.

      I am impressed that you seem to study the cases on my Website and it is very satisfying for me to know that my idea of establishing it in 2000 will be a permanent record of my use of Homeopathy which the coterie of ‘classical’ homeopaths derisively dubbed “Joepathy” as I treat the Disease and NOT the symptoms as ordered in classical Homeopathy.

      It is very satisfying for me to know in my old age that the Prasanta Banerji Homeopathic Foundation in Kolkata also uses, unknown to me, the same methology as they have also discovered that treating the symptoms of the disease as ordered by Dr Hahnemann and his classical followers did not have the same rate of cure as the direct “This for That” method that I use.

      It is also of interest to record that the term “Joepathy” attracts about 50000 hits on Google today.

  61. TallDear Dr Joe de Livera
    At the out set I wish to express my apology for writing your name wrongly.I wish that God almighty should grant you a healthy and long life so that many are helped like me.
    I am not able to get Argentum Metallicum6c here but30c is available.Can I use that.
    With regards,
    Major SS Bhatia

    • Joe says:

      It is essential that you follow my prescription as there is no question of your substituting Arg Met 30c merely because you cannot get the 6c prescribed in your street.

      Your email IP indicates that you live in Ludhiana and it is up to you to follow my prescription literally, and order it from downtown where there will be more pharmacies, if you wish to be treated.

      In your case your condition is chronic due to your advancing years and it is very likely that you will have to take this remedy for some months, perhaps even years, in the future. I can only prescribe but I cannot give you the medicine which I normally give free of charge to patients in Colombo where I live.

    Dear Dr Joe de Livera
    I was able to get Argentum Metallicum6c and have started having twice a teaspoon of the remedy in wet dose.
    I am experiencing much less pain now .
    I must thank you and pray for your long life.
    Earlier I was cured of incontinence of urine after TURP operation by Arnica 30c in wet dose.
    Thanking you,
    Major SS Bhatia

      Glad to learn that my therapy aka “Joepathy” has helped you again. You may safely continue to take this remedy for a few days more, and report your progress in a week.

      Please note that this is not a remedy for daily use like Arnica.
