Joepathy for the treatment of ailments affecting the Prostate

Joepathy for the treatment of ailments affecting the Prostate

March 15 2010

I was first diagnosed with an enlarged Prostate in 1995 and was prescribed Ciprofloxacin 500mg to fight the infection Prostatitis and Hytrin to relax the Prostate to help in passing urine. With the first tablet of Hytrin I discovered that I was unable to stand erect as Hytrin is an Alpha Blocker which lowers Blood Pressure which in turn relaxes the Prostate. I was then left to my own devices to ease the Urine flow which I did by using the two standard remedies prescribed for this ailment, Sabal Serrulata and Conium, both of which seemed to work in some manner but did not continue to do so after a few days.

At that time I had a slight accident where I grazed the skin of my shin which was annoyingly painful and showed the white surface fat layer under the skin. The remedy of choice was Arnica which I took immediately in the Dry dose pellets sublingually. I was agreeably surprised to discover within the hour that I was able to pass urine freely in a manner far better than the Conium 30c I was using in the Dry dose pellets and decided that Arnica was the remedy for my problem. I used to take it twice daily and was able to stave off any surgery till 2002 when I went into a full blockage of urine when I was forced to have a Retropubic Prostactectomy which was effectiveand normalized my problems till about 5 weeks ago when I discovered that I was suffering  from a low grade temperature and burning when voiding urine and was diagnosed with Prostatitis again after the space of 8 years after surgery. I then took Ciprofloxacin 500mg twice daily for 12 days and this cleared up the problem. I was also prescribed Flomax, a drug that relaxes the Prostate thus easing the passing of urine but since I had avoided all drugs other than on a SOS basis I decided to use Conium 6c in the Wet dose instead which I now take twice daily. I have also continued to take the Arnica 30c in the Wet dose nightly as I have done since 1996.

The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 30c seems to have reduced the enlarged Prostate which was responsible for my second attack of Prostatitis which was due to the retention of Urine which in turn caused the infection. I do not have any Dysuria today and my Urologist confirmed that my enlarged Prostate has reduced in size within the last 5 weeks since he last examined it internally and that it is not pressing on the Neck of the Bladder when I was diagnosed with Prostatitis for the second time in my 80 years.

I would recommend that anyone who reads this post and suffers from any difficulty or burning in passing Urine starts using Conium 6c in the Wet dose ASAP at least once daily with Arnica also once daily and I shall give instructions below on how this Wet dose is made. I can state with confidence that Conium 6c taken as prescribed will ease the flow of urine by relaxing the Prostate in a manner that drugs cannot equal. It will do this very safely in comparison to drugs which will eventually have some side effects. It will also reduce the enlarged Prostate which in turn will hopefully rule out any eventual surgery to the Prostate.

It is also necessary that a Blood Test is done annually to check the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level which is accepted as normal at between 0 – 4. This Blood test can also be extended for Lipid Profile and other factors that your doctor may find necessary.

It was after my personal experience with Arnica that I prescribed it to many other patients who presented any one of the many ailments associated with the Prostate which are quite common with advancing years in males. In fact this ailment is reputed to increase in the same proportion as one’s age as at age 75 the percentage of males who suffer from some impediment to the prostate is 75%.

It is interesting to record that I have also treated over 5 patients who had TURP (Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate) who were relieved of Dysuria and were able to pass urine freely without any impediment after surgery but who immediately afterwards suffered from urine retention which made them want to visit the toilet frequently sometimes hourly. In many cases this problem was due to the Urologist going in too deep into the Urethra which then affected the muscles in the Neck of the Bladder which resulted in their new ailment post surgery. This seemed to be grossly unfair after the patient summoned the courage to correct the first problem of Dysuria and ends up with the inability to contain urine for the standard 3-4 hours. They had returned back to their Urologists and complained of their new problem only to be informed that there was little or nothing that could be done about it.

They were all amazed to discover that Arnica 30c was able to correct and normalize this frequency of urination within a few hours after the first dose.

I have compiled my research on Arnica which I have used or prescribed for many ailments and diseases which are not recorded in the Materia Medicas and Repertories currently used in Homeopathy and you are invited to visit:

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

Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcoholl pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle 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 take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

      His PSA level is elevated at 17.5 and I would recommend that your husband consults a Urologist and that a Biopsy be done on his Prostate tissue to eliminate cancer.

      In the meanwhile he can take the following remedies:

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose thrice daily
      Conium 6c in the Wet dose twice daily

      Report his progress weekly.

      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.

      Dear Sir,

      My father is 72 yrs old, recently he was having some urinating problems so we consulted a Urologist, who prescribed few Antibiotics and suggested few blood & urine tests. As per the test results the PSA level is 32.3 , but the other test reports like urine routine & culture are normal, no infection evidence, and even the Ultrasound shows normal size Prostate with no visible complication. Doctor has told us to continue with the antibiotics for next one week and get the PSA test repeated along with the Prostate Biopsy. I am really worried and i hope you can help us! Thanks & regards Vikram

      • Joe says:

        Has your Urologist diagnosed Prostatitis ?
        This can be the reason for his PSA which at 32.3 is very high.

        I note that he has been advised to have an Biopsy which is essential to rule out Cancer which is a possibility unless he suffers right now from Prostatitis. This biopsy must be done IMMEDIATELY and it is always done through the anus.

        For how long has he been suffering from Urinary problems?
        What is the Antibiotic that was prescribed?
        Any other drugs?

        • JMTANDON42 says:

          Dear sir,

          Doctor has not given much details about his readings as yet. He wanted us to take antibiotics ( Zocef, Vizylac, Veltam-f) for onw week and go for a PSA RE-TEST, followed by biopsy.

          My father had a prostate surgery long back in 1994, but after that he had never faced any urine problem. This latest problem started only 10 days back, please also note that since he is having these antibiotics / drugs he is feeling much better now. We are taking him for the biopsy on 27th April after repeated PSA TEST. Awaiting your feedback / suggestions. Regards Vikram

          • Joe says:

            “My father had a prostate surgery long back in 1994”

            It would be useful to have details of his surgery as this information would be of use to enable me to advise you better.

            • Joe says:

              ” In 1994 my father was operated for enlarged prostate.”

              Please indicate the form of surgery used for his Prostatectomy.
              Was it a Retropubic or was it a TURP ?
              Normal or Laser?

              What is his height and weight?
              Does he do any form of regular exercise?

          • JMTANDON42 says:

            Sir, In 1994 my father was operated for enlarged prostate. After which he recovered well And never faced this problem again untill now. Sir I forgot to mention that my father had undergone angioplasty in July 2013 as his arteries were blocked 80% , there is one STENT inserted. He is also taking few blood thinners like Prax-A & Ecospirin along with pantop-d etc in daily routine since then.

          • JMTANDON42 says:

            Dear Sir,

            To the best of my fathers knowledge is underwent “TURP” surgery through Laser. His height is 5’9″ and his weight is 96 kgs (stable since last 18-20 months). He does not indulge in regular exercises, but he accompanies me to our office regularly, and stays quite active through out the day.

            • Joe says:

              Your father needs to reduce his weight down to 75kg for his height.
              It is very likely that it is his excess weight that was the cause of his Angioplasty which will recur in a few months.

              You are also advised to take
              Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken just once daily preferably at night to ensure that you do not also fall a victim to your father’s medical problems including:

              Cholesterol and Triglycerides

              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 and avoid fatty fools completely and eat in moderation to ensure that your stomach is filled to comfortable levels.

              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.

              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.

              PROSTATE

              I shall copy below the therapy I have pioneered to treat problems associated with the Prostate .

              The remedies are

              Arnica 6c
              Conium 6c

              Both remedies to be taken twice daily in the Wet dose made as per instructions below.

              The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 6c seems to reduce the enlarged Prostate which can sometimes result in Prostatitis, an infection of the Prostate Gland caused by the retention of Urine. The effect of these remedies is usually experienced within a few hours after taking them.

              I would recommend that anyone who reads this post and suffers from any difficulty or burning in passing Urine starts taking Conium 6c in the Wet dose ASAP with Arnica 6c twice daily. The joint action of both remedies will ease the flow of urine by relaxing the Prostate in a manner that drugs cannot equal. It will do this very safely in comparison to drugs which usually cause other side effects. These remedies will also reduce the enlarged Prostate which in turn can hopefully rule out surgery.

              It is also necessary that a Blood Test is done annually to check the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level which is accepted as normal at between 0 – 4. This Blood test can be added to the standard test for Lipid Profile and other factors that your doctor may find necessary.

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

              Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle 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 take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

              It is understood that the patient will STOP all other drugs which can antidote the Homeopathy.

              The following restrictions must be observed to ensure that the Homeopathy is not antidoted.

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

              Report progress weekly for further advice if needed.

                Dear Mr. deLivera, I have been visiting the various sites associated with your good self. My complaint is very close to what you have described above (BPH) and I am preparing to set up the two Wet Doses of Conium and Arnica respectively. I request two clarifications, to ensure correct treatment. Firstly, in Karachi, Pakistan, none of the stockists of homeopathic remedies is able to supply these with the suffix “c”and stockists insist that their offer of plain 6 or 30 dilutions/strength, is same as those with the suffix “c”. Secondly, I seek your clarification whether the two remedies in WD be taken together, or with a gap of, say, about half an hour between the two, as in some of your other postings. I am most anxious to start the treatment without undue delay, and shall look forward to your further valuable advice. Many thanks.

                  Glad to note that you have already read my therapy for Prostate problems and have got the 2 remedies I have prescribed Arnica 6c and Conium 6c and you now seek clarification about the suffix “c”.

                  I would like to reassure you that the 6c potency of any remedy is equivalent to 6.

                  They must NOT be taken together but must be taken with a delay of about half hour.

                  I shall expect you to report your own response to my therapy aka “Joepathy” (Google) in 24 hours when you should experience a distinct improvement in your Urine Retention which is usually the main problem that affects patients and compels them to visit the toilet frequently.

                  I would also recommend that you take a Blood test for your Lipid Profile (Cholesterol and Triglycerides) and your PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) to ascertain the status of your own Prostate problem.

                    Dear Mr. DeLivera, I cannot thank you enough for your prompt response and concise comments on my earlier queries. I note to keep you informed of my progress regularly.
                    I must mention that for the past 4-5 years I have been taking Sabal Serrulata Q, 10 drops twice daily. Also, the following Supplements once daily: Vit C, Omega 3 Fish oil, Zinc, CoQ 10 (Co-oEnzyme), Vit B Complex, Niacin, Low-strengthh Aspirin. (These were recommended by a US care-giver some three years back).
                    Of late, I am also suffering from stiffness and pain in my knuckle- and finger-joints in both hands, for which I am applying a Ruta cream from USA as needed.
                    I should add that I shall be 83 years of age in July, 2016.
                    I regret that the above personal info was not given in my initial approach, for which I apologise. Thank you again for your continuing consideration.

                  Report progress weekly for further advice if needed.

                    Dear Mr. deLivera, I noticed your comment, about my being located in Isfahan, in yr message time-stamped 10.16PM, 30Jan, much after my Post at 11.34PM.
                    As a precaution I would draw your kind attention to my said Post as it outlines some personal details which I had overlooked in my first posting.
                    I am located in Karachi, Pakistan and do not understand why my IP address indicates otherwise.
                    I have initiated the doses as prescribed and shall report back initially next Sunday. Kind regards.

                    • Joe says:

                      I checked your IP again and it shows Karachi.

                      I presume that the software had erred in locating you in Teheran.

                    • Khalid says:

                      Dear Mr. deLivera, I trust I am not breaking the chain by inserting this above your comment of 31Jan. I could find no alternative in order to maintain continuity.
                      Further to my last submission at 1.35PM on 31 Jan, I seek your guidance also on whether I can take a daily dose of 10 drops of Crataegus Q at mid-day while on the wet doses of Arnica and Conium prescribed by you? This was recommended as a Heart Tonic by a doctor friend who also takes advantage of homeopathy in his practice. I shall not do so unless you confirm. Thank you for your consideration.

                    • Joe says:

                      Is there any reason why you wish to take Crataegus Q?
                      Do you have any Cardiac condition to warrant it?

                    • Khalid says:

                      Dear Mr. deLivera, Please connect this with your last comment (244666) of Feb. 1, to which I could not respond earlier as my system has been down until now. For same reason I could not submit my promised report on Sunday, relating to my BPH problem.
                      On Crataegus: it was taken as a heart tonic, as I had suffered attacks of Vertigo, exhaustion, etc. I would like to resume a daily dose if you agree.
                      On my BPH: Wet Doses of Arnica6 and Conium6

                    • Joe says:

                      Crataegus is NOT for daily use.

                      Arnica 6 can be safely used daily and I have used it since 1996 in just one dose nightly.

                    • Khalid says:

                      Due to no apparent reason I could not continue my comments as the incomplete form disappeared from my screen as I began my report on the Wet Doses. I trust this will not end up in a mess!
                      The treatment was begun on Jan31. I experienced no change in my condition until the third day, when I noted a longer gap between my night-time trips to the toilet. My first trip after falling asleep is now 3-5 hours thereafter 2-3 hours. Daytime trips are about 3-hourly. Wet Doses seem to be working. I owe you my thanks for that!
                      Regards.

                    • Joe says:

                      I hope you understand that you cannot expect to be CURED of your urine retention which is due to your Prostate gland getting enlarged with age. I do not know your age but this is usually one of the problems that we males are saddled with due to advancing years and I am 86 years old.

                      You should discover that your time between toilets can even return to normal but you must continue to take the 2 remedies Conium and Arnica for some time into the future and report your progress from time to time to me.

                      As far as I am aware, I do not think that anyone in the Homeopathic world has identified these 2 remedies to treat Prostate problems and it is my hope that those who read this post will follow my example and check the terms below on Google for other examples of using standard Homeopathic remedies in a Non Classical manner which is against the strict laws of Homeopathy which I consider archaic.

                      Dear Mr. De Livera, this is with ref to yr two msgs of this morning. I note yr comment re Arnica6 instead of Crataegus.
                      I fully understand that a cure for my BPH may not happen, but hopefully, gaps between visits to the toilet may increase! (As mentioned in my post of Jan 30, I am into my 83rd year). Prior to the Wet Doses I was taking 10 drops of Sabal Serr Mother Tincture twice daily, and this seemed to work well. Any harm in resuming the same, say once a day? Or as another Wet Dose, perhaps? Best regards.

          I note that you are 87 years old and you may like to know that I too was born in 1929 and I do NOT take any drugs whatsoever. I only use Homeopathic remedies and am in a state of wellness which many who are under half my age envy.

    My dad aged 70 years suffers from following symtoms/diseases.

    His actions and responses have become very slow since last 2 years doctors have diagnosed NPH.
    He is unable to hold urine. He has tendency to fall forward. Getting up form bed is very difficult for him.
    He suffers from Diabetese since 1983(~ 29 years). He does not take insulin for the same.He is advised to take GlicidM tablets twice a day for the same.
    He is also having enlarged Prostate.
    He feels constipated most of the times also his urine smells very bad.
    He is having swollen feet for last 1-2 years.He feels very week porbably his semen is geting mixed with his urine.

    Please let me know if you would wnat any medical test report or any tests to be performed on him.
    I would be very greatful for your help.

    Regards,
    Abhinav

    • Joe says:

      You have stated:
      “since last 2 years doctors have diagnosed NPH.”

      “He does not take insulin for the same.He is advised to take GlicidM tablets twice a day for the same.”

      I am confused with your statements where you state that your father was “diagnosed NPH” and you further state that he is not taking Insulin but is taking GlicidM. This should read Glizid M which is a drug used for Diabetes.

      I am copying below a reference to NPH from Wikipedia

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NPH_insulin

      NPH insulin (or neutral protamine Hagedorn) (also known as Humulin N, Novolin N, Novolin NPH, NPH Lletin II, and isophane insulin), is an intermediate-acting insulin given to help control the blood sugar level of those with diabetes.

      Please clarify whether or not he is taking NPH Insulin or if he is taking only Glizid M.

      I must warn you that his condition is serious from the description that you have given me and it is unlikely that any Homeopathic remedies that I can prescribe can help him at this late stage.

    • Joe says:

      Abhinav

      I have just read your post of December 9 and regret that your dad’s case is far too complicated for me to treat at this very late stage.

      All I can suggest at this late stage is that you give him the following remedies:

      Lack of stability and Diabetes
      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose thrice daily.

      Enlarged Prostate
      Conium 6c in the Wet dose twice daily

      Constipation
      Nat Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken after every meal

      Report progress in a week

  4. Spar says:

    Hi Joe,

    What do you recommend for Non-bacterial prostatitis? I have pain ejaculating, no other pain.

    Thanks.

    • Joe says:

      Spar

      Non bacterial Prostatitis is a difficult problem to resolve.

      I presume that you have consulted a Urologist who has taken samples of your urine and tested it and advised you that you are free of any infection. I have discovered however that the mere fact that your urine gives a negative result does not necessarily indicate that you are OK.

      In your case I would advice that you have a sample of the prostatic fluid which can be taken by directly massaging the prostate through the anus which has to be done by a urologist, to further check if there is no causative bacteria which may not have been discovered in the urine sample.

      If this test too is OK I shall then prescribe a few remedies to see if they can help you.

      In the meanwhile I would like to have more data on your case as to when and how you first discovered any problems with your prostate with details of what they are.

  5. Spar says:

    Thanks Joe you seem to ver knowledgable. Yes Urine was free of bacteria. Can ejaculatory Semen be checked Instead of Prostic fluid?
    It happened about two years ago, after checking the urine, doctor prescribed 5 weeks of doxycycline. That has resolved the pain, but I think it just reduced inflammation. After 6 months it has returned. There is no other pain. After going to chiropractor he has suggested it might be stress related as there is a bit of tightness in a lower region.
    What else do you suggest I check?
    It might be more of Epididymitis.

  6. Spar says:

    Hey Joe, the doctor told me it is not bacterial, he said in 75% of cases it is not bacterial. Any other tests you would suggest besides prostatic fluid?

    What would be your prescription.

    • Joe says:

      Spar

      I see that you have not followed my instructions to take a sample of Prostatic fluid to check for any infection.

      I would like to know what your symptoms are which you will have to give in detail to enable me to advise you.

      What I would like to know is:

      Why do you think that you suffer from Prostatis?

    In the morning I have posted my comments to get the treatment for prostrate and that results into frequent urination. Iam using Hytrin and I request you to suggest the medicines for prostrate.

    Pl respond and thanks a lot!!!

      The reason why you did not see my reply to your post is because you had posted your Prostate problem in a thread which has no relevance to your Prostate. You had posted it on “Robert Ray was CURED from the after effects of 3 Strokes.

      I am copying below my response to your Prostate problem below again and shall delete the other shortly.

      Joepathy for the treatment of ailments affecting the Prostate including:

      Frequent urination due to retention of urine.
      Burning sensation when passing urine.
      Dribbling.
      Infection due to retention of urine.
      Reduction of the mass of the Prostate Gland.

      Your remedies are:

      Conium 6c and Arnica 30c both taken twice daily in the Wet dose.

      The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 30c seems to reduce the enlarged Prostate which is often responsible for Prostatitis, an infection of the Prostate Gland usually caused by the retention of Urine. The effect of these remedies are usually experienced within a few hours after taking them.

      I would recommend that anyone who reads this post and suffers from any difficulty or burning in passing Urine starts using Conium 6c in the Wet dose ASAP with Arnica 30c also once daily. The joint action of both remedies will ease the flow of urine by relaxing the Prostate in a manner that drugs cannot equal. It will do this very safely in comparison to drugs which usually cause other side effects. These remedies will also reduce the enlarged Prostate which in turn can hopefully rule out any eventual surgery to the Prostate.

      It is also necessary that a Blood Test is done annually to check the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level which is accepted as normal at between 0 – 4. This Blood test can be added to the standard test for Lipid Profile and other factors that your doctor may find necessary.

      It is understood that you will stop all other drugs you are taking for your problem.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcoholl pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle 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 take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

        You will have to consult a doctor for your Urine infection as I would not dare to treat an infection with a Homeoapthic remedy.

        A doctor will have a ABST (antibiotic sensitivity test)done to identify the causative organism and will prescribe the best remedy to treat it.

      Joepathy for Kidney Stone

      The remedy to help dissolve a Kidney Stone is:

      Berberis Vulgaris 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily to dissolve the stone. You will take this for some weeks or even months till you feel an increase in your pain level which will indicate that the stone is dissolved and is ready to be passed down the Ureter.

      You will then take Colocynthis 200 in the Wet dose twice daily to relax the Ureter to enable the stone to pass down into the bladder.

      Please visit the link below “How Joepathy expelled another Kidney Stone”

      http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/216770/

      You will drink at least 3-4 liters of water daily to help in dissolving the stone and flushing it down. The water will also prevent the formation of new stones.

      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.

    Hi Joe,

    I was able to finally confirm that it is bacterial Prostatitis with Chlymedia and Enterococus infection. Would you be able to help?

    • Joe says:

      Spar

      The drug that is used to treat Prostatitis is Ciprofloxacin 500. Dose 1 tablet taken twice daily for 2 weeks when another detailed test is done on the Prostatic fluid which is extracted as instructed by massaging the Prostate through the anus.

      You should discover in 2 weeks that this fluid is free of all bacteria.

      Please note that I am not a doctor and you may have to consult a doctor to get a prescription for this drug.

      Report progress in 2 weeks.

      It is obvious that your father’s Kidney stone is not responding to my therapy.
      He can STOP it and seek the advice of doctor.
      He can opt for treatment to shatter the stone with Lithotripsy which a hospital with this facility will provide. It is painless and shatters the stone with sound waves.

      HE WILL HAVE TO GET THE CYST ON THE KIDNEY TREATED ASAP.

      He can continue with the Conium and Arnica for his Prostate and hope that it will help him.

      Joepathy for the treatment of ailments affecting the Prostate including:

      Frequent urination due to retention of urine.
      Burning sensation when passing urine.
      Dribbling.
      Infection due to retention of urine.
      Reduction of the mass of the Prostate Gland.

      Your remedies are:

      Conium 6c and Arnica 30c both taken twice daily in the Wet dose.

      The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 30c seems to reduce the enlarged Prostate which is often responsible for Prostatitis, an infection of the Prostate Gland usually caused by the retention of Urine. The effect of these remedies are usually experienced within a few hours after taking them.

      I would recommend that anyone who reads this post and suffers from any difficulty or burning in passing Urine starts taking Conium 6c in the Wet dose ASAP with Arnica 6c twice daily. The joint action of both remedies will ease the flow of urine by relaxing the Prostate in a manner that drugs cannot equal. It will do this very safely in comparison to drugs which usually cause other side effects. These remedies will also reduce the enlarged Prostate which in turn can hopefully rule out any eventual surgery to the Prostate.

      It is also necessary that a Blood Test is done annually to check the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level which is accepted as normal at between 0 – 4. This Blood test can be added to the standard test for Lipid Profile and other factors that your doctor may find necessary.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcoholl pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle 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 take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

      Your Inguinal Hernia cannot be treated with Homeopathy and you will have to seek the assistance of an experienced surgeon who can use the Mesh method to treat it. This is a painless operation and you may like to know that I too underwent surgery and spent just one night in hospital.

      Before you have surgery you will contact me for instructions to use Arnica 30 both before and after surgery. I did not take any drug to treat the pain as the Arnica alone was sufficient to do so, to the amazement of the surgeon and the nurses.

    Dear joe,
    Thanks for your reply.one thing i have to clear that i am taking wet dose of arnica 6 for slightly elevated Blood suger. Now should i take arnica 30 instead of 6. Another Question shall I continue UROMAX -.4gm cap. (as advised by urologist) along with your remedies please advise.

      You will STOP the Uromax and ALL OTHER DRUGS as the 2 remedies I have prescribed will help you far better.

      You cannot take the Arnica 30 with the 6 as the 30 will over-ride the 6. You must take ONLY the 6c as this will help both your Diabetes and your Prostate problems.

      I do not recollect your problem with your Prostate but presume that I prescribed Conium 6c and Arnica 6c for you.

      Sabal Serrulata is just a waste of time and it is not impossible that if you insist on taking it that the action of the remedies that I prescribed may be antidoted.

  18. akash says:

    dear joe,

    I am taking conium 6 and arnica 6 about 15 days as per your advice for treatment of enlarge prostate/frequent urination nd less flow of urine.
    But till date no significant result i have seen.
    Waiting for valuable advice.

      I have treated many patients with the 2 remedies in the potencies you are taking and they have all responded well.

      Let us change the potencies of the 2 remedies as below:

      Arnica 30c
      Conium 200c

      Both remedies in the Wet dose as usual

      Report your response in 48 hours.

  19. akash says:

    Dear joe,

    Thanks for reply.please see 3 to 4 just above posts that u will find my history. OK i will change conium 6. Per haves considering my slightly elevated BS u earlier suggested arnica 6. would you please review the matter? I would like to add here more that I have forgetfulness activities like:-
    1. known person seems unknown.
    2. can not recollect things where kept.
    3. every thing forgetting tendency.
    4. can not recollect number even 4 digit & above.
    5. can not memorize even a sentence after reading though it is tried repeatedly.
    6. can not express right thing or right words in right time.

      The 2 remedies I have prescribed cannot possibly be the cause of your many mental problems.

      You are advised to STOP taking the remedies I have prescribed for you as they have not helped you.

    I am 25 years of age (male. i am suffering from a Frequent Urination from past 7 years. as well as constipation also i believe these two problems started at same time. Now Frequent Urination has really become a severe problem. as i drink water or any liquid i feel the urge to pass urine and worst thing is i am not able to control it. it is always tough for me to reach to loo. most of the time some urine drops comes out before reaching loo. as well as stream of the urine is also not proper it comes slow and take too much time to pass the small amount of urine. After peeing i always feel that there is some urine remaining in the pipe. Most of the time i feel burning and sensation in urine pipe. i also have to get up 3 to 4 times in night for peeing. And whenever i get up in the morning i have strong urge to pass the urine so i have to run towards loo. one more thing whenever i get any important work or i feel the work pressure all of asudden at the same time i feel the strong urge to pass the urine. color of the urine is yellow or light yellow. one more thing i would like to add that i used to do lot of masturbation from the age of 13 and i continued it upto 2 months before. although i have left this habit but just to check my current state of problem i rarely do masturbation so after masturbating i feel pain in my penis and cold sensation. as well as seldom i feel pain in while peeing which flows upwards. but it is not happening from last some days. I consulted with a Urologist and took his medicines for 25 days but in case of frequent urination it did not work. there was relief in pain upto some extent. Secondly my constipation problem is also at severe stage i daily have to take some natural laxative to make the bowel movement proper. stool formation is also not proper. i feel thirsty after every half an hour and dry mouth. one more problem which i am facing is insomnia i am always lost in thoughts while i go to bed. it take me hours to sleep. I got the ultrasound test done in which prostate size was normal but urinary bladder was somewhat thickened. Dr. also got the urine culture in that report he found some infection but in the recent test there is no infection. kindly suggest

    • Joe says:

      Shaizdin

      I believe that your Urologist has not prescribed the correct antibiotic to treat the bacteria that is the reason for your current distress.

      You can consult another Urologist or in the alternative take Ciprofloxacin 500 twice daily for a week and report your response in 3 days when you should experience some improvement in your status.

      I would also want you to have a blood test to check your Blood Sugar level to rule out Diabetes.

      You can take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken thrice daily for your constipation and report your response in 48 hours.

  21. Rajesh says:

    Dear Joe,

    I was very impressed by the clarity of your advice and the numerous positive references.

    I am suffering from an enlarged prostate (54 cc) for over 5 years and have been on different allopathic medications (Dutas T, Silodal 8 and now Alfusin) for over 3 years. The medicines have been changed to find a better fit, but have had almost the same results – partial relief and keeping the symtoms under control, but no lasting benefit. The main problems are high post-void retention (170 ml) and slow flow rate.

    I started Arnica 30C 2 pellets 3 times a day and within a day I could see a strong effect, though not what I expected. I was continuing my Alfusin medication (1 tab a day at bedtime). I saw that my flow rate dropped sharply and the quantum of uring per voiding also dropped. On the second day, the situation worsened and I stopped after 2 days (6 doses only). Immediately on the next day, the flow improved (back to as before the Arnica).

    I suppose continuing Alfusin and Arnica together has caused the problem or do I have an adverse reaction to Arnica or is this phenomena common in the beginning ? What do you advise – Stop Alfusin and take Arnica alone ? Any other suggestions ?

    Warm regards

    Rajesh

    • Joe says:

      Rajesh

      I note that you have been experimenting with Arnica 30c in pellets and discovered some negative effects when combined with the drugs you have been using for some years. You must understand that it is best that you do so with the advice of someone who is able to guide you as otherwise the results can be a disaster as you have already experienced.

      I shall copy below the therapy I have pioneered to treat problems associated with the Prostate from which I too have suffered and resulted in surgery, which could have been avoided if I had discovered the 2 remedies listed below in time.

      The remedies are

      Arnica 6c
      Conium 6c

      Both remedies to be taken twice daily in the Wet dose made as per instructions below.

      The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 6c seems to reduce the enlarged Prostate which can sometimes result in Prostatitis, an infection of the Prostate Gland caused by the retention of Urine. The effect of these remedies is usually experienced within a few hours after taking them.

      It is understood that the patient will STOP all other drugs which can antidote the Homeopathy.

      The following restrictions must be observed to ensure that the Homeopathy is not antidoted.

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

        Dear Joe,

        I’d like to start the treatment you suggest by taking Arnica 6c and Conium 6c on Wet doses.

        You explained in your advice how to get the remedy by dropping 3drop into the water in a bottle. Should I understand that I will need two bottles for the Arnica 6c and Conium 6c or I should drop 3 drops of each of them together in one bottle.

        I will appreciate if you could clarify me this as it is not clear to me.

  22. Mr Aizarnazabal says:

    Dear Mr Joe,

    I apologize for addressing you in that way. English is not my first language. I am interesting in trying to use homeopathic remedy for my BPS. At the moment I am taking drugs and they work sometimes. I don’t want to face the fact that I have to use them for life. The urologist advice me to have an operation but I don’t want it at the moment. Looking for information for alternative medication to drugs on the web I came across with your website and I want to try the combination remedy you describe. Now, It is not clear to me how should I prepare the remedy and that’s why I asked for you advice.

    Kind regards

    Mr Aizarnazabal

    • Joe says:

      Mr Aizarnazabal

      I accept your apology.

      You stated:
      ” I am interesting in trying to use homeopathic remedy for my BPS.” What is BPS ?

      It is best that you do not use acronyms when you post your ailments on a medical website as BPS does not mean anything to me. You state that you have consulted a Urologist who advised you to have surgery presumably of your Prostate Gland but I must have more precise data about your problem and how old you are and for how long you have suffered from it. You can also indicate the diagnosis of your Urologist and the drugs if any, that were prescribed.

      PS

      Did your Uro do a blood test for PSA? (Prostate Specific Antigen?)

      RESPECTED DOCTOR JOE,

      this is regarding my father FOR INGUINAL HERNIA AND PROSTATE ENLARGEMENT.

      MY FATHER IS GETTING INGUINAL HERNIA, ON STANDING, EATING, THE RIGHT SIDE HERNIA COMES OUT AND BECOMES VERY PAINFUL. THEN HE HAS TO LIE DOWN.

      FOR LAST 4-5 DAYS, THE HERNIA IS COMING OUT VERY FREQUENTLY AND THEN IT PAINS HIM VERY BADLY.

      HE HAS TO LIE DOWN AND PUSH IT IN.

      SINCE YESTERDAY, WE HAVE BROUGHT A HERNIA BELT FOR HIM, WHICH IS SLIGHTLY SUPPORTIVE AND THE HERNIA DOES NOT COME OUT VERY OFTEN.

      PLEASE LET US KNOW, IF YOU CAN TREAT THIS HERNIA.

      i have seen on various websites that comfrey creams and COMFREY poultice are helpful in hernias, pl guide.

      CAN THE HOMEOPATHY MEDICINE HELP TO STRENGTHEN THE ABDOMINAL MUSSCLES, SO THAT THE HERNIA DOESNT COME OUT.?

      THE DOCTOR HAS SUGGESTED FOR A HERNIA SURGERY, WITH A MESH REPAIR.

      THE SURGERY WILL BE A OPEN SURGERY.

      AT THE SAME TIME HE IS ALSO HAVING PROSTATE ENLARGEMENT.

      THE UROLOGIST DOCTOR ADVISED TO DO SURGERY FOR BOTH HERNIA AND PROSTRATE TOGETHER.

      PL HELP US OUT AT AN EARLIEST, WHETHER YOU CAN TREAT MY FATHER WITHOUT SURGERY.

      HE IS WEAK, AND 70 YEARS OLD. WE WANT TO AVOID THE SURGERY.

      we have taken following medicines:

      1.SABAL SERRULATA (mother tincture) FOR LAST 10 MONTHS- 6 drops three times a day,

      2.URTICA URENS, (mother tincture) for last 3 months

      3. RECKWEG- R25 DROPS FOR LAST 2 MONTHS.

      NOTHING HAS HELPED. ON THE CONTRARY PROSTATE SIZE HAS INCREASED. THE SIZE OF PROSTATE WAS 60 GMS IN 2012, NOW INCREASED TO 99 GMS IN 2013.

      HE HAS TAKEN VELTAM F FOR LAST 3 MONTHS AS PRESCRIBED BY A UROLOGIST.

      WE HAVENT REPEATED THE USG AFTER OCTOBER, 2013.

      IN OCTOBER 2013, HE HAD A PROBLEM OF PROSTATITIS, STOPPAGE OF URINE, HE WAS CATHERIZED. AND HAD INFECTION.

      HAD TAKEN ANTIBIOTICS, URISPAS ETC

      HIS PSA WAS 9.73 IN OCTOBER 2013 DURING PROSTATIS,
      THEN IN DECEMBER 2013, THE PSA WAS 4.72.

      AT PRESENT ALL HOMEOPTAHY MEDICINES ARE STOPPED.
      HE IS GETTING UP AROUND 4-5 TIMES AT NIGHT FOR URINATION.
      THE FLOW IS ALSO VERY THIN.

      BOTH PROSTATE AND HERNIA PROBLEMS ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT. CAN WE CURE BOTH THE CONDITIONS WITHOUT A SURGERY?

      PL APPRECIATE OUR PROBLEMS AND REVERT BACK TO US AT AN EARLIEST.

      MANY THANKS

      You have presented your dad’s 2 Urological problems to me very late.

      You must understand that there is nothing that Homeopathy can do to treat his Inguinal Hernia/s and the sooner he has the surgery done the better for him.

      His PSA of 4.72 proves that he does not have Cancer but considering his age of 70 years and that he is suffering unnecessarily, I would strongly suggest that you persuade him to have surgery to repair the Hernia and to treat his enlarged Prostate.

      Please assure him that surgery is not to be dreaded and must be faced when the occasion demands it as Homeopathy can treat ailments but NOT problems which demand surgery.

      It is very important that this surgery is done by an experienced surgeon who has specialized in Urology and he will discover that it will only take about 4-5 days stay in hospital and he will be thankful with all his surgical problems are past.

      You can give him Arnica 30c in the Wet dose 3 times daily starting ASAP and on the day of surgery he will take the same Arnica twice before surgery and every 2 hours after surgery. A dose is a teaspoonful of the remedy water which is made up as per instructions below:

      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 his progress after surgery.

      DEAR DOCTOR JOE,

      THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR TAKING OUT TIME AND GIVING US A DETAILED REPLY.

      I HAVE APPROACHED YOU WITH GREAT HOPE THAT YOU CAN GIVE SOME MIRACULOUS TREATMENTS FOR MY FATHER.

      I WAS ENTHUSIASTIC TO KNOW THAT COMFREY OINTMNETS, POULTICE ETC HEAL HERNIA IN 4-6 WEEKS.

      PL GUIDE IF IT REALLY WORKS OR IS IT A GIMMICK?

      FOR ENLARGED PROSTATE I HAVE READ THERE ARE SO MANY TREATMENTS AVAILABLE TO REDUCE THE SIZE. EVEN ON YOUR WEBSITE, I HAVE READ MANY PEOPLE GOT AMAZING RESULTS FOR ENLARGED PROSTRATE.

      IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET 2 SURGERIES DONE TOGETHER. IT WILL BE TOO HARD ON HIM TO WITHSTAND 2 SURGERIES AT HIS AGE.

      HE HAS ALREADY LOST 4-5 KG IN LAST 6 MONTHS, AND NOT EATING PROPERLY SO GONE WEAK.

      ATLEAST IF PROSTATE PROBLEM CAN BE CURED WITH HOMEOPATHY, I WILL BE REALLY OBLIGED TO YOU.

      MANY MANY THANKS

      I have already informed you that there is absolutely nothing that can be done for your father by Homeopathy to help with his Hernia and Prostate enlargement. He must be thankful that hisProstate is not cancerous as this would have added to his problems.

      He must have his 2 problems treated surgically by a competent Urological surgeon and he must be informed that the 2 surgeries one for the Prostate and the other for the Hernia repair will be done in ONE session when his abdomen is opened up for about 2 hours to reduce the blockage in his urinary passage. His Urethra which is now constricted by the Prostate gland which has increased in size and is not permitting the free passage of Urine will be resected and the 2 Hernias will be eliminated internally at the same time.

      This is not a dangerous operation and I have myself been operated in 2001 and have been vastly relieved by the surgery. I am now 85 years of age and do not have any problems post surgery except for the discovery that the Prostate has again regrown to about the original size of 150gm which is however not causing any constriction of the Urethra.

      Follow my advice and use the Arnica in the manner that I have prescribed.

    Dear Joe,

    My name is Fernando and I have found by chance your website. I am 66 years old and suffer from Prostate enlargement (BPH). I was diagnostic 10 year ago, more or less. The consultant prescripts me some drugs Dutasterid/tamsulosin 0.5mg and 0.4mg respectively. They didn’t work much but the bad effect was that I have a retroactive ejaculation and loss of libido apart from the drug itself.

    I have been taking these medication for long and I want to change to more integrate medicine like homeopathy that’s why I am contacted you after reading your comments.

    I have had several blood test during these years, see PSA results
    2007 2.6 ug/L
    2010 2.2 ug/L
    2012 3.1 ug/L
    2013 1.180 ug/L

    In the consultant letter 2012 to my GP it said “abdominal examination was unremarkable. Digital rectal examination revealed a 40 g smooth prostate. He had a flow test in the clinic during which he voided 180 ml of urine and his Qmax was around 8 with prolonged pattern. He also had an ultrasound scan considering his haematuria and that showed normal kidneys with no evidence of stones or hydronephrosis. Flexible cystoscopy in the clinic showed a normal looking bladder and moderately occlusive prostate”.

    I wonder if you could advise which homeopathic remedy should use in order to reduce the times I need to go to the toilet at night and during the day. The specialist nurse has told me that I need to drink two litres of water but if I do it I need to go to the toilet continuously.

          The following restrictions must be observed to ensure that the Homeopathy is not antidoted.

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

            Dear Mr Joe,

            Thank for you advice. I have a couple of questions for you if I may I ask to clarify my confusion.

            1 In order to prepare the therapy should I use two different bottles and drop each remedy (arnica 6c and Conium 5c) in each bottle or insert 3 drops of each remedy in only one bottle.

            2 It is possible to use tap water or have to be only spring water.

            Kind regards

            Fernando

            • Joe says:

              You will NOT MIX the 2 remedies I have prescribed in just ONE bottle as it will result in the 2 remedies anti-doting each other.

              I believe you live in the UK and cannot understand the reason why you wish to use tap water which is always chlorinated. Chlorine antidotes all Homeopathic remedies.

    leading an active lifestyle and regular exercise as the best possible solutions to preventing
    back pain. Irritable bowel syndrome sufferers can also experience symptoms of indigestion, passing excess wind,
    nausea, and exhaustion. I have written this article to explain why they say
    to do this and I why I don’t agree and why I believe there is a better option.

    • Joe says:

      It is very likely that your problem with ED is due to various other problems in your body that cannot be helped by Arnica.
      Suggest you consult a specialist doctor to diagnose the cause of your problem.

    Dear sir,

    Four years back I gone for spine surgery (l4-l5)at that time I gone to bed my bladder and bowl system became uncontroll and my left foot gone to foot drop possition. The doctors advice me to go for immediate surgery . After surgery my urine and bowl system came back but my left foot drop
    not resolve .I can not walk properly without wearing afo . My foot has the feeling of numness doctor say that your nerves are damage badly due to disk slip .

    now a days I am facing some problem in my urine whenever i go to pass urine after passing the urine i feel more urine

    Can you advice me your tharapy for my problem
    Saqib

    • Joe says:

      I presume that you have read some of the cases on the Prostate Thread that you are posting on but in your case your current Urinary problems are connected to your spinal surgery and not the enlargement of your Prostate.

      I shall however copy my therapy which has worked for many patients suffering from Urinary Incontinence and I hope that my therapy can help you.

      I shall copy below the therapy I have pioneered to treat problems associated with the Prostate .

      The remedies are

      Arnica 6c
      Conium 6c

      Both remedies to be taken twice daily in the Wet dose made as per instructions below.

      The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 6c seems to reduce the enlarged Prostate which can sometimes result in Prostatitis, an infection of the Prostate Gland caused by the retention of Urine. The effect of these remedies is usually experienced within a few hours after taking them.

      I would recommend that anyone who reads this post and suffers from any difficulty or burning in passing Urine starts taking Conium 6c in the Wet dose ASAP with Arnica 6c twice daily. The joint action of both remedies will ease the flow of urine by relaxing the Prostate in a manner that drugs cannot equal. It will do this very safely in comparison to drugs which usually cause other side effects. These remedies will also reduce the enlarged Prostate which in turn can hopefully rule out surgery.

      It is also necessary that a Blood Test is done annually to check the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level which is accepted as normal at between 0 – 4. This Blood test can be added to the standard test for Lipid Profile and other factors that your doctor may find necessary.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle 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 take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

      It is understood that the patient will STOP all other drugs which can antidote the Homeopathy.

      The following restrictions must be observed to ensure that the Homeopathy is not antidoted.

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

      Report progress weekly for further advice if needed.

      • sAQIB says:

        Dear sir,

        I tried to get conium 6 but in our city conium is only available in 30 and 200 now what i should do.

        Saqib

        • Joe says:

          I cannot believe that you cannot get Conium 6 in your city which I believe from your IP number, is Islamabad.

          I would suggest that you get the 6c as the 30c which I have experimented with is not as effective. You must take both remedies in the 6c potency, Arnica 6 and Conium 6 and you should discover within 24 hours or even earlier that your Urinary Incontinence has improved considerably.

  31. saqib says:

    Sir,

    I wanted to know only that conium and arnica can be a cause of blood pressure or blood pressure is due to another matter

    saqib

    • Joe says:

      I have prescribed for the problems you reported which originated from your Prostate and if you have not noticed any improvement in your status you must stop my therapy as you suspected that it had caused your BP to increase.

      It is strange that you suspected that my therapy has affected your blood pressure but you have not indicated what your current BP is and what it was in the past before you started on my therapy.

      As I stated in my last post, you must stop using my therapy if you feel that it was the cause of your enhanced BP.

      • saqib says:

        Dear sir,

        i am using conium 6 and arnica 6 in wet dose from last 45 days and i got relief more 80 % . now what i should i do

        saqib

        • Joe says:

          Don’t you think that the answer is obvious?

          You must continue the therapy as it is helping you.

          You stated a month ago:
          “I wanted to know only that conium and arnica can be a cause of blood pressure or blood pressure is due to another matter”

          What is your BP and why do you think that it is due to the therapy you are using today?

  32. saqib says:

    Dear sir,

    now a days my bp is 100/70

    But when i started the conium and arnica i feel some anger in my mood thats why i inqure you at that time i feel my bp might be inreased.

    • Joe says:

      I discovered that I have been treating you since November 1 2013 and have responded to 13 of your posts on my website up to now.

      I note that you are concerned about your BP which you state is 100/70 and I hope that you are aware that the BP which is accepted as normal is 120/80. You are reassured that your BP is absolutely NORMAL

      If your Diastolic goes up to even 140 this is nothing to be concerned about it is the Systolic above 90 that can cause some concern when one has to take steps to treat it.

      You will continue to take the 2 remedies Conium and Arnica, I have prescribed for life. Also continue with the Nat Phos 6x which I prescribed in November 2013 after every meal as this will help you.

      The anger and BP you describe are NOT the result of my therapy.

      You can do a Blood Test for Lipid Profile (Cholesterol and Triglycerides) and also a test for PSA or Prostate Specific Antigen since you have some Urinary problems and report them.

  33. saqib says:

    Dear sir Thanks for your advice for lipid profile and psa test after the result of the both test i will inform you about the result.

      • Joe says:

        I regret that there is no remedy to improve hearing that I am aware of.

        You can try giving her Arnica 30c in the Wet dose twice daily and observe if it will help her in a few months.

    I have gone through the article and comments. I am aged 55 years, I have multiple ailments especially I am diabetic (not under full control HbA1c 7.6) Cholestrol (under control using statin tab 10mg) and prostate enlargement volume measure 29cc PSA 0.81g/ml (no treatment undergone as I was takind medicine for High Blood Pressure which has gone down now and only sodium elimination tablets taken), abdominal problems etc. Moreover I am having panic attack (now under control using alparax 0.25 and nexito 5mg). I am under allopathic treatment. Please let me know whether I can get a permanent solution in the ailments.

    • Joe says:

      I regret to inform you that your case is far too complicated for me to prescribe for as it will take far too much of my time which I cannot spare at my advanced age of 86 years.

      You are also taking a multitude of drugs which you cannot stop and will result in any Homeopathic remedies that I may prescribe being antidoted as Homeo Remedies are all at Nano levels and are not effective if taken with other drugs and supplements.

  35. Ramesh says:

    Dear Sir,

    I am 55 years old. I am having the problem of frequent urination and sometimes I am unable to hold urine. The quantum of urine passed is also very less. The flow and pressure of urine while passing is also low most of the times. But there is no pain or irritation or burning sensation while passing urine. I am having this problem for the past 5 years.

    So far I have not taken any medicine. But recently I consulted an Urologist and he clinically tested thro’ anus and told that there is slight enlargement in the Prostate(BPH) and advised for Blood test.

    My PSA level was – PSA Total: 12.3 ng/ml and Free PSA: 1.43 ng/ml on 14.09.2015. Then I took Ciprofloxacin 500 mg 2 times a day for 21 days. Then the level of PSA was reduced to – PSA Total : 7.55 ng/ml and Free PSA: 0.48 ng/ml on 06.10.2015. Then I took Ciprofloxacin 500 mg 1 time a day for 40 days. Then the PSA level has increased again to PSA Total: 12.5 ng/ml and Free PSA: 0.73 ng/ml on 17.11.2015.

    The doctor suggested to have Biopsy on the Prostate tissue to eliminate cancer.

    My Blood Sugar, BP, Cholesterol, Creatinine and other parameters are normal. My Height is 165 CM and Weight is 60 Kgs.

    I have chronic Cold for about 30 years. Excess Mucus will be accumulated in my nose and throat daily in the night. This leads to blockage of my nostrils and throat in the night while sleeping. The mucus will be cleared daily in the morning thro’ frequent sneezing and also by me while brushing. But it is manageable so far.

    I have itching in my feet (upper side) and ankles for the past 5 years. Itching sensation will be severe at night times. But now this problem is not so severe.

    During winter season I have itching in my legs(not in feet) due to dryness as my skin is very dry in nature. This problem also being managed by applying coconut oil regularly after bathing in all seasons.

    As per your recommendation given in the site for treatment of Prostate enlargement, yesterday I started taking Arnica 30C and Conium 6C Wet doses for twice daily(Morning and Evening) with a gap of 1 hour between each dose.

    Kindly advice me whether to continue these two remedies. I have a doubt whether to take Arnica 30C or Arnica 6C as both are advised by you in different cases. Kindly suggest me the appropriate remedy.

    Kind Regards,

    Ramesh

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that you have already studied the therapy I have prescribed for Prostate problems and are already taking Conium 6c and Arnica 30c which will hopefully help your Urine retention which many patients have reported to me is felt in a few hours after the first dose. You will of course take each of them twice daily. You will report your response in a week or earlier if you so wish. You can take Arn 30 right now and in a few weeks change over to Arn 6 and observe the difference in their effect in your own case. Some have reported that the 6c is better than the 30c.

      I use the 30c in the Wet dose and have done so since 1996 by taking just 5ml nightly. At age 86, I drive to office daily and am in the best of health that many envy. I exercise nightly around 8.00PM for about 45 minutes to lift my Heart BPM to 120 at which level I sweat here in Colombo.

      You should discover that your itching due to dry skin will be helped by the Arnica in usually 3 days as reported by many patients whom I have treated for Dry Skin and Eczema. Do NOT apply coconut oil as this will block the action of the Arnica.

      Your chronic Catarrh will respond to
      Eupatorium Perfoliatum 200c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.
      Report response in 24 hours.

      Check your PSA level after 3 months on my therapy and report it for further advice.

      I shall for the record copy my default therapy for Prostate problems:

      I shall copy below the therapy I have pioneered to treat problems associated with the Prostate .

      The remedies are

      Arnica 6c
      Conium 6c

      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

      It is understood that the patient will STOP all other drugs which can antidote the Homeopathy.

      The following restrictions must be observed to ensure that the Homeopathy is not antidoted.

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

      The patient is advised to refrain from Alcohol as this has triggered the Urine retention which my therapy has helped to cure.

      Report progress weekly for further advice if needed.

  36. Ramesh says:

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you very much for your kind concern and immediate reply.

    As per your advice I will continue to take Arnica 30c and Conium 6c for few weeks and then I will take Arnica 6c instead of Arnica 30c.

    I already read about Eupatorium Perfoliatum 200c therapy for chronic cold and I also got the medicine with me. But I would like to know whether I can take Eupatorium Perfoliatum 200c also along with Arnica and Conium. If it is so, what would be the time gap between each medicine. Otherwise I will start Eupatorium Perfoliatum 200c therapy after completing the prostate therapy.

    I would also like to have your opinion whether to have Prostate Biopsy at this time.

    Kind regards,

    Ramesh

    • Joe says:

      Do let me know which of the 2 potencies is best to stop your frequent urination which is due to urine retention.

      You may take the Eupat P with the other remedies as long as you leave half hour between each. I have noticed that this remedy will clear your nose in about 20 minutes after taking a dose.

      I do not think that a Biopsy is indicated right now but we will observe how you respond to my therapy and I shall guide you. It will be true to state that I am very knowledgable on Prostate problems as I too suffered from it and my therapy is the result of my own research based on experimenting with various remedies.

      You may not be aware that I am not a professional Homeopath and at age 86 I do still continue to help anyone in distress with my own therapy which classical homeopaths labelled as “Joepathy” as I do not follow the standard Homeopathic protocol in prescribing although I use and prescribe the standard Homeopathic remedies which are available in almost all countries.

  37. Ramesh says:

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you very much for your advice.
    I will follow the therapy as per your instructions and let you know the progress later.

  38. Ramesh says:

    Dear Sir,

    As I am leaving to USA on January, I underwent Blood sugar, Lipid Profile, Urine culture, Uroflow, X- Ray KUB, PSA and DRE. All parameters of the result are normal except the PSA level(10.40).

    The PSA level has been reduced from 12.5 to 10.4 after one week’s therapy(Homeopathy).

    The result of UROFLOW Test: Maximum Flow Rate 14 ML/SEC; Voided volume: 383 ML; Post Void Residual Urine: 53 ML.

    The Digital Rectal Examination revealed that there are two bumps(Nodules) in the Prostate. The Urologist advised me to undergo TRUS guided Prostatic Biopsy. But I am proceeding to USA within one month and will be back after three months. I would like to have your opinion in this regard. Kindly advice me.

    Kind Regards,

    Ramesh

    • Joe says:

      I am very impressed to learn that the 2 remedies I prescribed about 2 weeks ago has reduced your PSA level:
      “The PSA level has been reduced from 12.5 to 10.4 after one week’s therapy(Homeopathy). “

      It is a report like yours that reassures me that my ‘invasion’ into the world of Classical Homeopathy which I have replaced with my Joepathy has indeed been of some significance as I have been subjected to many taunts and attacks in the Homeopathic Forums that I used to prescribe on up to about 6 years ago when in disgust I established my own Homeopathic Website which I notice is attracting many visitors (over 250) on a daily basis today.

      I believe the reports of patients like you, who used my therapy and reported the drop in your PSA level by 2.1 points is very significant in just 15 days and I hope that any classical homeopath who reads this fact will take heed and use my therapy to treat their patients, instead of following the age old classical tenet of treating the “Symptoms the patient presents with a single remedy” which rule I too used to follow, with little or no success.

      You may not know about the trauma that I used to suffer on these other Homeopathic Forums but if you are interested you can read about them by searching on my Website under “Joepathy”..

      I note your reference to your 2 Nodules in your Prostate but I do not think that this is of any significance today as you have proof that your PSA has dropped. Nodules are caused by some blockage of the Prostatic Fluid in the Prostate Gland and we will observe your progress in the future and I shall advise you on any future action (Not Surgically Invasive) which I note has already been prescribed by your Urologist.

      I has just discovered a note which will give more information on my therapy for Prostate problems on my computer and shall copy it below:

      Your remedies are

      Conium 6c and Arnica 30c both taken twice daily in the Wet dose.

      The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 30c seems to have reduced the enlarged Prostate which was responsible for my second attack of Prostatitis which was due to the retention of Urine which in turn caused the infection. I do not have any Dysuria today and my Urologist confirmed that my enlarged Prostate has reduced in size within the last 5 weeks since he last examined it internally and that it is not pressing on the Neck of the Bladder when I was diagnosed with Prostatitis for the second time in my 80 years.

      I would recommend that anyone who reads this post and suffers from any difficulty or burning in passing Urine starts using Conium 6c in the Wet dose ASAP at least once daily with Arnica also once daily and I shall give instructions below on how this Wet dose is made. I can state with confidence that Conium 6c taken as prescribed will ease the flow of urine by relaxing the Prostate in a manner that drugs cannot equal. It will do this very safely in comparison to drugs which will eventually have some side effects. It will also reduce the enlarged Prostate which in turn will hopefully rule out any eventual surgery to the Prostate.

      It is also necessary that a Blood Test is done annually to check the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level which is accepted as normal at between 0 – 4. This Blood test can also be extended for Lipid Profile and other factors that your doctor may find necessary.

      It was after my personal experience with Arnica that I prescribed it to many other patients who presented any one of the many ailments associated with the Prostate which are quite common with advancing years in males. In fact this ailment is reputed to increase in the same proportion as one’s age as at age 75 the percentage of males who suffer from some impediment to the prostate is 75%.

      It is interesting to record that I have also treated over 5 patients who had TURP (Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate) who were relieved of Dysuria and were able to pass urine freely without any impediment after surgery but who immediately afterwards suffered from urine retention which made them want to visit the toilet frequently sometimes hourly. In many cases this problem was due to the Urologist going in too deep into the Urethra which then affected the muscles in the Neck of the Bladder which resulted in their new ailment post surgery. This seemed to be grossly unfair after the patient summoned the courage to correct the first problem of Dysuria and ends up with the inability to contain urine for the standard 3-4 hours. They had returned back to their Urologists and complained of their new problem only to be informed that there was little or nothing that could be done about it.

      They were all amazed to discover that Arnica 30c was able to correct and normalize this frequency of urination within a few hours after the first dose.

      I have compiled my research on Arnica which I have used or prescribed for many ailments and diseases which are not recorded in the Materia Medicas and Repertories currently used in Homeopathy and you are invited to visit:

      “Arnica the Miracle Remedy – Brief case histories” on:
      http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/42450/

      “The Arnica Miracle Continues” on:
      http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/79462/

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcoholl pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle 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 take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

      You will NOT accept any invasive procedure on your Prostate and you will follow my therapy precisely.

      One question is:

      Do you suffer from any Gastric problems especially after dinner when you may experience bloating of your stomach with some ‘heart burn’ ?

  39. Ramesh says:

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you very much for your valuable information regarding the Nodules and for the precious advice regarding the Biopsy and Surgery.

    Normally I have slight gastric problem especially in the evening as I control the urge to pass motion in the office. It will be cleared after passing motion in the evening at home. The is no heart burn.

    But recently, I am having the Gastric problem very much and sometimes I have the feeling of bloating especially in the evening and not after dinner. Now for the past 3 days I passed motion also for about 4 or 5 times. There is no heart burn.

    As the Urologist advised me to have Biopsy, He prescribed me Ciprofloxacin 500 mg (twice a day) and Metronidazole(Flagyl) 400 mg (thrice a day). After giving the blood sample for PSA level, I had taken these medicines for 2 days and then I stopped these medicines as it was given as a preparation for Biopsy. I think the gastric problem and the frequent passing of stools may be due to the effect of the medicine. The last dose of the medicine was taken on 10th morning.

    As you advised, I stopped applying coconut oil over my body and face. I am applying coconut oil only to my head. But I would like to know whether I can apply any moisturizing creams to my face and body to overcome the dry skin problem.

    I am taking both Black Tea and normal tea also and stopped taking coffee. Please advise me whether to stop Tea also.

    Kind Regards,

    Ramesh

    • Joe says:

      “whether I can apply any moisturizing creams to my face and body to overcome the dry skin problem.”

      Coconut oil cannot help your dry skin problem which I presume you have suffered from for some years.

      The Arnica 30c I have prescribed will do so.
      I prescribe it for Eczema and Dry Skin and you should notice that your skin returns to normal in a few days, usually 3 days but it can be up to 10 days depending on the severity. This information has been confirmed by many patients on my Website which you are invited to study.

      You can treat your Gastric problems with Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken after every meal thrice daily.

      You may drink Tea as it is only the Coffee that is supposed to be anti doting Homeopathy traditionally.

    Dear Sir,

    Now I am taking Conium 6c and Arnica 30c for my prostate problem. My PSA level was reduced from 12.5 to 10.4 while taking the blood test on 08.12.15 after one week’s theraphy.

    But now my PSA level is increased to 11.5 while taking the blood test on 29.12.15 after almost one month’s theraphy.

    My skin also become so dry and Itching in my foot also increased very much in night time.

    I would like to have your opinion whether to take Conium 6c and Arnica 6c instead of Arnica 30c as suggested by you earlier.

    I have given below the details of my problem for your ready reference:-

    ( I am 55 years old. I am having the problem of frequent urination and sometimes I am unable to hold urine. The quantum of urine passed is also very less. The flow and pressure of urine while passing is also low most of the times. But there is no pain or irritation or burning sensation while passing urine. I am having this problem for the past 5 years.

    So far I have not taken any medicine. But recently I consulted an Urologist and he clinically tested thro’ anus and told that there is slight enlargement in the Prostate(BPH) and advised for Blood test.

    My PSA level was – PSA Total: 12.3 ng/ml and Free PSA: 1.43 ng/ml on 14.09.2015. Then I took Ciprofloxacin 500 mg 2 times a day for 21 days. Then the level of PSA was reduced to – PSA Total : 7.55 ng/ml and Free PSA: 0.48 ng/ml on 06.10.2015. Then I took Ciprofloxacin 500 mg 1 time a day for 40 days. Then the PSA level has increased again to PSA Total: 12.5 ng/ml and Free PSA: 0.73 ng/ml on 17.11.2015.

    The doctor suggested to have Biopsy on the Prostate tissue to eliminate cancer. )

    Kind Regards,

    Ramesh

    • Joe says:

      You have taken Cipro twice for a very long time and an anal examination by your Urologist indicated that your Prostate is only very slightly enlarged. Your frequent urination can be considered as another sign that all is not well inside.

      It is time to do a Biopsy through your anus to investigate the reason for your high PSA to rule out Cancer. My therapy cannot help you at this stage but there is no harm in taking it as it may help with your Urine retention which is the reason for the frequent visits to the toilet and if you had taken it 5 years ago you may have been cured by now.

      I shall be interested to learn the result of your Biopsy but DO NOT agree to any surgery.

  42. Ramesh says:

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you very much for your instant reply Sir.

    As I am planning to visit my daughter’s House in USA in another 10 days, I could not undergo the Biopsy now. Since my daughter is in her family way, I could not postpone the visit. I will have it in the month of April ’16 and let you know the result.

    Kindly advise me whether to take Conium 6c and Arnica 6c twice a day during my stay at USA for about 3 months.

    Kind Regards,

    Ramesh

    Dear Sir,

    Crataegus was taken last year to relieve shortness of breath.

    • Joe says:

      You stated:

      “Crataegus was taken last year to relieve shortness of breath.”

      I hope you realise that Crataegus is a very powerful remedy and is NOT to be taken lightly in the casual manner you seem to be doing to relieve your ” shortness of breath.” Has it done so?

      Have you done a Blood test to check your Lipid Profile and an ECG to check if you have any Cardiac problems? These tests are basic and essential before you start on drugs or Homeopathic remedies and in your own interest you must have the statistics from these tests to warrant taking the Crataegus.

      You can take Arnica 30c in the Wet dose and report how you respond to this simple and safe remedy.

  45. Khalid says:

    Dear Mr. DeLivera, Pl connect this with my last comment (245981) of Feb 9. I am continuing with the doses of Arnica6 and Conium6 twice daily as prescribed, with very encouraging results.During the night I am able to sleep undisturbed for an average of 4-5 hours. Thereafter my toilet trips are about 2-hourly. I can not thank you enough for your help and treatment! I am aware that you are fully occupied in giving relief to others, and shall only disturb you with my progress report when my condition changes further. Again, my thanks for all your help.
    By the way, I referred a friend to your site for similar treatment. He seems to think that your instructions to “insert 3 drops” have to be carried out BEFORE EVERY capful dose. Whereas my understanding is that the three drops are meant to be inserted only once for every 500ml. I hope my understanding is correct.
    Best regards.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to learn that your visits to the toilet which interfered with your sleep are now extended to 5 hours in just over 2 weeks. I am confident that they will be further extended and that you will return hopefully to normal soon.

      It is important however to consult a Urologist and also take the standard PSA test of your blood to evaluate the level which will indicate if you suffer from any other problems. A US Scan is also indicated taken internally when the Uro will evaluate if you need any biopsy.

      You are invited to keep me advised of your progress.

      Your friend’s interpretation of my simple protocol to make the Wet dose is incorrect.
      All you need is 3 drops in the 500ml bottle of water inserted just ONCE.

    Dear Sir,

    My father is 84 years old and has had a very active life till 78 yes after which he developed slight back and joint problems limiting his movements. Since then, although he walks but is not very active. He us having following issues:

    1) Body is getting weak. I can see museless getting loose and bones being quite visible.

    2) He was suffering from BPH for quite some time. Earlier he was taking medicines, prescribes by doctors to control the frequency till one day he was un able to pass urine. The retention created bloating of stomach and infection. To release the urine doctors had put cathedral with a tube and a urine bag. That relieved him. He was prescribed with some medicines again which he took for a few weeks however after taking off the tube the earlier problem of retention was still there so the tube and urine bag was put back. It’s been more than a month he is having the Cathedral and the tube which is a hassle to handle for long period’s.

    He has been advised not to go through TURP surgery due to weak heart function which we discovered while having the ECHO and ECG as a pre operation Checkup.

    I would be grateful if you can please advise a safe remedy for him to start for getting rid of the tube since surgery would not be possible as of now for a few months till the heart function improves and the Anaesthetic and Cardiologist clears that.

    Also advise if he should continue your advised medicines with the meds he is currently taking for prostarte (I guess he is taking proscar)

    Many thanks and God bless you.

    • Joe says:

      Good to learn that at age 84, your dad is still active but suffers from BPH and some Cardiac problem.

      You may like to know that I am 2 years his senior at age 86. I do NOT take any drugs whatever and only use Homeopathic remedies to treat problems like Colds etc. The last drug I took was in 2008 after surgery for a Hernia. ALL my vital statistics are normal or below normal and for the record I was surprised to see my Blood Sugar level a year ago at 51mg/dl !!! And I do not have any aversion to sugar but the Arnica 30 I have taken nightly for 20 years was responsible to keep my BS levels abnormally low.

      I am not a professional Homeopath as this Science is only my Hobby and I treat all patients free of charge.
      I do still drive to work daily as I have done for the last 60+ years.

      Suggest all members of your family follow my example and take just one teaspoonful of Arnica 30 in the Wet dose nightly.

      PROSTATE

      I shall copy below the therapy I have pioneered to treat problems associated with the Prostate .

      The remedies are

      Arnica 6c
      Conium 6c

      Both remedies to be taken twice daily in the Wet dose made as per instructions below.

      The combination of both Conium 6c and Arnica 6c seems to reduce the enlarged Prostate which can sometimes result in Prostatitis, an infection of the Prostate Gland caused by the retention of Urine. The effect of these remedies is usually experienced within a few hours after taking them.

      I would recommend that anyone who reads this post and suffers from any difficulty or burning in passing Urine starts taking Conium 6c in the Wet dose ASAP with Arnica 6c twice daily. The joint action of both remedies will ease the flow of urine by relaxing the Prostate in a manner that drugs cannot equal. It will do this very safely in comparison to drugs which usually cause other side effects. These remedies will also reduce the enlarged Prostate which in turn can hopefully rule out surgery.

      It is also necessary that a Blood Test is done annually to check the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) level which is accepted as normal at between 0 – 4. This Blood test can be added to the standard test for Lipid Profile and other factors that your doctor may find necessary.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle 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 take a capful which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

      It is understood that the patient will STOP all other drugs which can antidote the Homeopathy.

      The following restrictions must be observed to ensure that the Homeopathy is not antidoted.

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

      The patient is advised to refrain from Alxohol as this has triggered the Urine retention which my therapy has helped to cure.

      Report progress weekly for further advice if needed.

      CARDIAC

      The Remedies listed below will stabilize your Cardiac problems and you must report progress at least weekly to enable me to evaluate if it has helped to resolve your crisis.

      My therapy comprises using Arnica 30c, and Apis 6c. All remedies to be taken in the Wet dose made precisely as indicated. You will also add Nat Phos 6x and Ferr Phos 6x to be taken in the dry tablets as prescribed below.

      Arnica, has the incredible ability of filtering the blood and increasing its flow throughout the body. A dose is taken twice daily and will help in many ways.

      Nat Phos 6x will help by accelerating the passage of food down the gut which will help digestion after a meal and will treat GERD. Dose 2 tablets taken after every meal thrice daily.

      Ferr Phos 6x will increase the oxygenation of the blood and will help in the curative process.
      Dose 3 tablets taken before meals thrice daily.

      Apis 6c will help to increase Kidney functions to enable the body to leach out the harmful chemicals in the blood. It is a diuretic and will help to pass excess fluid in your body as urine.

      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.

      You must exercise in moderation daily and you will drink over 3 liters water daily to flush out your system.

      Report progress weekly.

      HE WILL NOT NEED ANY DRUGS IN A WEEK AFTER HE STARTS ON MY THERAPY.

      Report his progress at least weekly or more often.

    Dear Mr. De Livera,
    Please connect this with my last posting of Feb 9.
    I am continuing with the WD Arnica6 and Conium6 treatment twice daily, as prescribed. Frequency of urination at night still remains at between 4-5 hours initially, thereafter at 2-3 hour intervals for the remaining part of the day, all as previously reported.
    I have not reverted any sooner as I had nothing fresh to add to my last report. In order not to unnecessarily distract you from your ongoing good actions, I shall bother you only if I experience anything meriting your kind attention. I trust this will be in order.
    Thank you for caring! Best regards.

    • Khalid says:

      Dear Mr. De Livera,
      This is a follow-up on my last, of 25 March, 2016.
      I had to travel to the USA at short notice in early-April. My hand baggage was pilfered enroute and I was left without my iPad, among other valuables. For various reasons, mainly family preoccupations here, I was unable to reorganise my communications until now. Please forgive my undue silence over these months!
      I have diligently continued to benefit with your prescribed twice daily Wet Doses of Arnica6 and Conium6, one Tsp each. The pattern of toilet night visits remained at 3-5 hour intervals until around late August, when I suddenly had to go hourly. I attributed this to a vegetable curry at dinner. But thereafter I seldom had a gap of 5 hours. Four days ago, we were served Pumpkin ice cream after dinner, and again there has been an increased frequency at night, virtually hourly, People here believe that Pumpkin is a diuretic.
      Is it possible that my system is becoming resistant to the medication? My Doctor back home, whom I consulted by phone last night tells me me he senses no further deterioration in the state of my BPH in the past 2 years.

      With best regards and renewed apologies for the silence of these past five months!

      • Joe says:

        You first consulted me last January and at that time you were taking Crataegus Q to treat your “shortness of breath”. You then reported urine retention with frequent visits to the toilet both at night and during the day. From your many reports during the year I do not see any improvement in your status under my therapy and it is necessary to investigate your case in detail.

        Please consult a Urologist and have a scan done of your Prostate and do a Blood Test for your Lipid Profile and your PSA and also do an ECG and report the diagnosis.

        You will continue the Conium 6 and Arnica 6 in the Wet dose as usual and report the frequency of your visits to the toiler both during night and day. How much liquids do you consume daily and when? Do you drink alcohol?

        What is your age, height and weight?
        Do you have any exercise routine and if so, how often?
        What is your profession?
        Married?

        List ALL the drugs and Homeopathic remedies you are taking today.

  48. Nusrat says:

    Mr. De Livera,

    Sir, I read your posts on JeoPathy on ABC as well as on your website. I would present my symptoms below for your kind review and prescribing a solution.

    Prostate enlarged – Urine completely blocked

    18-April’16 : I was having difficulty urinating and was taking Sabal Ser Q that usually cured the problem, but i had an asthma attack (allergy) and doctors gave me steroids and inhalers, that, I think, made my prostate grow larger. After that day, I am not taking any inhalers or steroid and I am OK. I think it was an allergy although I feel my breathing is NOT deep, and I yawn at times.

    1-May’16: (3 months ago) My prostate size grew to 85cc, completely blocking my urine and in emergency a catheter was put in. Since then taking Sabal Ser Q 20 drops 4 times a day. Last week, ultrasound showed my prostate size was 62cc but URO said ultrasound readings could be 30% wrong.
    10-August: my catheter was removed to see if I can urinate but not a single drop came out despite that I pushed and bladder was pushing. I suffered for 5 hours, then a new catheter was pushed in, relieving my bladder. Only 200ml liter of urine was in the bladder that drained out to the urine bag.
    This was a painful and bloody exercise since a novice male nurse tried to insert catheter and due to extreme pain and bleeding called in help who was able to insert it. Since then, the area is sore and bleeding. There is blood and whitish, sticky liquid (Is it PUS?) oozing out from around the catheter.

    Since 12-August, I already started using your discovery of Arnica30 & Conium6 (www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/219430/)

    On 13-Aug, a day later I noticed the following:

    a. liquid oozing out from around the catheter is less blood and is more whitish and sticky. Is this pus? Does it show a progress or its getting worse?

    b. I get an urge to go n pee despite having the catheter in place, but when i go n sit, stool is passed.

    c. I feel my balls are hard and slightly painful to touch.

    Question. Can homeopathy help at this stage of prostate size? Will your discovery (Arnica30, Conium6c together) reduce the prostate size and restore normal urination or you want to prescribe something else?

    I am resisting persuasion from doctors and family to undergo operation, but still have hopes with homeopathy, so please help me.

    I really admire your state of health and would wish for similar.
    May GOD give you a long and useful life where you continue helping the mankind in trouble.

    • Joe says:

      You have not indicated your age and for how long you have suffered from problems with your Prostate. You have asked for my advice without copying the reports of your Urologist to give me more data on your problem except to indicate that it is now 85cc and that you are fitted with a Catheter.
      For how long did you have the catheter?
      When the
      Were you prescribed any drugs like Ciprofloxacin?
      Did your uro indicate that you suffered from Prostatitis?
      What action did your Uro take after the “novice male nurse tried to insert catheter and due to extreme pain and bleeding called in help who was able to insert it”

      I believe that you are currently suffering from both the after effects you described of the insertion of the Catheter and Prostatitis which is an infection of the Prostate for which the treatment is a long course of Cirpofloxacin. If this works and you can pee, I feel that my therapy which you have read on the ABC can help to reduce your Prostate .

      Surgery to relieve your present condition is not a major problem any more as Laser surgery is far safer and less painful in comparison to the standard Retropubic Prostatectomy (the classic open surgery) and you should discuss with your Uro what the next step should be.

      • Nusrat says:

        Dr. Joe De Livera,

        Sir, thank for the prompt response. I will copy your questions below and answer them:

        1. You have not indicated your age > I am 63
        2. and for how long you have suffered from problems with your Prostate.
        > For last 7 years, I used to have occasional difficulty urinating and I would take Sabal Ser Q 10 drops 3 times a day and within a week, get back to normal, and then leave the medicine. On 18-April 2016, I had a severe allergy/Asthma attack and in emergency were given blue inhaler (subletamol?) that, I suspect, caused my prostate grow to this size 85cc completely blocking the urine on 1-May.

        3. You have asked for my advice without copying the reports of your Urologist to give me more data on your problem except to indicate that it is now 85cc and that you are fitted with a Catheter.

        > Please see answer for #5 below. There is no reports indicating whether its prostatitis or BPH.

        4. For how long did you have the catheter?

        > Since 1-May 2016. It was removed on 10-August to see if I can pee but not a single drop of pee came out in 5 hours of anguish, so replaced causing a lot of pain and bleeding i mentioned earlier.

        5. Were you prescribed any drugs like Ciprofloxacin?
        No. Uro says at this stage, operation is the only optiion. Did not give any medication. I held onto the catheter by my choice to give homeopathic medicines time. Unfortunately, 3 months of Sabal ser Q did not help at all.

        5. Did your uro indicate that you suffered from Prostatitis?

        I looked up. URO saw my hospital reports and Prostate size 85cc report and straightaway decided for operation without writing any report. Hospital report of my emergency-blocked-urine-visit says ‘post- obstructive renal failure’, I believe, since the blocked urine had gone into my kidneys. Kidneys have recovered as per Kidney doctor.

        6. What action did your Uro take after the “novice male nurse tried to insert catheter and due to extreme pain and bleeding called in help who was able to insert it”

        > I am seeing the URO on 17-Aug. Catheter was removed by URO in his clinic but put back at the hospital 5 hours later.

        7. I believe that you are currently suffering from both the after effects you described of the insertion of the Catheter and Prostatitis which is an infection of the Prostate for which the treatment is a long course of Cirpofloxacin. If this works and you can pee, I feel that my therapy which you have read on the ABC can help to reduce your Prostate .

        > Does it mean I need to take Ciprofloxacin before I use your therapy?

        8. Surgery to relieve your present condition is not a major problem any more as Laser surgery is far safer and less painful in comparison to the standard Retropubic Prostatectomy (the classic open surgery) and you should discuss with your Uro what the next step should be.

        > Sir, I have read reviews of patients that went through laser surgery that do not, in any way, encourage me to go through that. I respect your opinion though.
        Please see : http://www.steadyhealth.com/articles/enlarged-prostate-prostate-laser-surgery

        9. Now, one question from me, your therapy is for Prostatitis or BPH or both? I believe former is due to infection.

        10. One more piece of info, when my family doctor examined my prostate putting a finger through anus, he touched my prostate and I felt his finger on the prostate but there was no pain. Does that indicate whether its Prostatitis or BPH?

        11. I have started taking your therapy since 12-August. Conium 6c WD twice and Arnica 30c WD once nightly, though I am tempted to increase Arnica dosage to 2-3 times or a higher potency but need your approval.

        12. You missed my earlier comment that follows:
        On 13-Aug, a day after re-insertion of catheter, I noticed the following:
        a. liquid oozing out from around the catheter is less blood and is more whitish and sticky. Is this pus? Does it show a progress or its getting worse?

        b. I get an urge to go and pee despite having the catheter in place, but when I sit, stool is passed.

        c. I feel ONE OF my balls is hard and slightly painful to touch. Ball is since then growing harder and bigger, making it hard to walk. Could it be an infection??

        13. Question. Can homeopathy help at this stage of prostate size? Will your discovery (Arnica30c, Conium6c together) reduce the prostate size and restore normal urination or you want to prescribe something else?

        14. I am resisting persuasion from doctors and family to undergo operation, but still have hopes with homeopathy, so please help me.

        Again, I appreciate your kind and dedicated help for the miserables suffering like me, and pray for your continued good health and good work.

        • Joe says:

          It is essential that you consult another Uro and present your case as the one you have consulted seems determined to do surgery to treat your Prostate.

          Have you done a Blood Test for your PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen)? This data should be in your reports from the hospital. Also have you got data on your Lipid Profile?

          I would also recommend that you get a prescription for Ciprofloxacin and take it for at least 2 weeks twice daily.

          In the meanwhile I would recommend you use my therapy below to observe how it can help you. You will report your response in a week or earlier if you wish.

    Sir, Dr. Joe,

    After inserting the new catheter on 10-Aug in painful and bloody exercise, blood and pus were oozing out from around the catheter, and my right testicle was painful to touch. Now for last two days, the right testicle has started swelling and is getting heavier. URO thinks it’s Urinary Tract Infection(UTI) and prescribed Ciprofloxacin twice daily and for two weeks (as you indicated above). I have started taking it and feel it is helping. I read the side effects of Cipro and seems that Cipro has destroyed lives, broken muscle tendons and made people unable to walk or go to bathroom themselves. Please see youtube videos on Cipro. Are you aware of these side effects and what do you recommend to avoid them while still taking Cipro?
    I am really scared to take Cipro but I have no other choice with these huge testicles hanging heavy under me.
    Appreciate your kind help, and pray for your good health and continued help to the suffering mankind.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to learn that your Uro has diagnosed your case as a UTI and prescribed the same Cipro I prescribed for you. Please be assured that you will NOT suffer from:
      “I read the side effects of Cipro and seems that Cipro has destroyed lives, broken muscle tendons and made people unable to walk or go to bathroom themselves. ”

      Start on the Cipro immediately and let me know how you respond in a week

      I regret that I cannot be expected to answer your questions point by point as I have tried to help you but refuse to waste my time in a futile exercise which in any case will not help you.

  51. Nusrat says:

    Sir, Dr. Joe,

    I have started on CIPRO and feeling its working. My swelling is decreasing and I am hoping there will no horrible side effects as described in youtube videos. Do you recommend taking any homeo medicines to alleviate chances of any CIPRO side effects or help cure my infection?

    Once again, I appreciate your kind help,

    • Joe says:

      Glad to learn that in just a couple of days the Ciprofloxacin which I had recommended and was also prescribed by your doctor has helped you.

      I have already indicated that the side effects you were worried about are UNTRUE.
      There is absolutely NO CHANCE of CIPRO causing them.

  52. Nusrat says:

    Sir, Dr. Joe,

    I still have two days of CIPRO left. I feel the swelling of testicles has considerably decreased but still remain about 30%. I am hoping it will be completely gone in next two days. Is there any medicine you can prescribe to ensure infection does not re-occur?
    Again, Appreciate your kind help, and giving me a lot of moral support,

    thanks

      I hope that you have realized by now that Cipro has saved you from a very serious condition that I could not have helped till the bacteria causing your problem was treated. You will also observe that all your fears of Cipro causing the side effects you were scared of did not affect you in any way.

      From your report today I believe that this bacteria has not been completely eradicated and you will have to continue your dosage for another week. The problem in complete eradication of the bacteria is due to the blood supply to the prostate gland is very low and this enables the bacteria to hide safely out of the range of drug for a long time.

      You can continue to take the therapy I have prescribed as it will also help to reinforce the effect of the Cipro to eliminate the bacteria.

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    My 2 weeks dosage of CIPRO finished but still I could feel some swelling and sensitiveness to touch. Before I read your above message, I had gone to the doctor this morning who, like you did, prescribed it for another week.
    I am scared of side effects since CIPRO has a lot of press about it disabling people even months after it is taken. Can you please prescribe some medicines to counter the ill side effects of this medicine?

    Secondly, its already 4 months since my first catheter was put in (and 3 weeks since the 2nd one). URO has scheduled me for an operation (Laser TURP) in 3 weeks from today. He will use ‘contact laser’ that gives him more control over the span of area laser touches.

    Please advise me how best to go through the pre-operation and post-operation time? What homeo medicines I can take before and after the operation?
    I understand Prostate surgery may have several side effects. Incontinence is my biggest worry. Life will be miserable with that. What to do if that happens? others possibilities are Erectile dysfunction and retrograde ejaculation, .. that I dread as much.

    Again, I appreciate your kind support and pray for your healthy life and continued service to mankind,

    thanks,

    • Joe says:

      I can see that you are just frightening yourself by reading the livid data on the after effects of Cipro which you have now taken for perhaps some weeks and you are the best judge of whether this disconcerting data holds true or not in your case.

      STOP READING THIS DATA AS YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT SENSITIVE TO CIPRO.

      You cannot survive with a catheter stuck into your penis for life and you will permit your Uro to use his skills to help you to recover and return to normal after he uses the Laser TURP method which is by far more effective than the old TURP technique which often results in the incontinence you described which can mar one’s life post surgery. You may like to know that I have CURED this problem in many patients in the past and if you do present incontinence, my “Joepathy” is by far more effective than the drugs your Uro will prescribe.

      You will hopefully not have to face ED but Retrograde ejaculation is normal when the semen will empty into the bladder. Check this with your Uro.

      You will stop the Conium 6 and the Arnica 6 today and you will take Arnica 30c in the Wd thrice daily till 24 hours before surgery and continue the Arnica 30c every 3 hours for 2 days post surgery and reduce it to 4 times daily on day 3 and 4 and so taper it thereafter to twice daily to see how your body responds without the catheter which you will report to me.

      It is very likely that your Uro will advise you to continue with the Cipro right up to surgery as it will prevent any infection in the Prostate till it is treated by surgery. Be assured that it is absolutely safe to be used as prescribed.

  54. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    I am trying to locate your article I read about your surgery and how you discontinued the pain killers dispensed at the hospital and instead took homeo medicines that made your recovery very fast.
    I am not able to locate that article. I would follow your example after my upcoming surgery. Could you please post a link to that?

    • Joe says:

      I have tried to trace it but failed.

      I went through the old “Retropubic Prostatectomy” which involves opening up the abdomen with a scar of about 8 inches which took many months to heal. You will not suffer as I did and you will recover almost overnight.

      I did not suffer from ED but Retrograde ejaculation is normal.

  55. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Ref. my previous message, I did find this (below) eventually in your Arnica article. Please clarify when to use 200c and when 30c? If doctors insist on morphine, can I take Arnica at the same time as morphine?

    SUBSTITUTE FOR MORPHINE POST MAJOR SURGERY 200c and 30c
    I have used this myself after my Retropubic Prostatectomy and can confidently recommend it for use after any major surgery. When I regained consciousness I noticed the Morphine syringe attached to the IV line and promptly ordered it removed to the consternation of the nursing staff and the surgeon, who warned me that I could even suffer from a major shock due to the pain without the morphine. I stated that I will use my Arnica alone to control the pain and they were very surprised to note that I was relatively free of pain after a few hours. I was able to leave my bed on the third day without any pain medication except for the Arnica I used every 2 hours at first and every 3 hours later. I was discharged on the 5th day and walked to my car. They were all amazed at my extremely quick recovery at 73 years.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that you have traced my report on my recovery post a major surgery using just Arnica 30c as the analgesic WITHOUT THE MORPHINE which was connected to my IV line.

      I must admit to some surprise that even after you traced my report you inquired:
      ” If doctors insist on morphine, can I take Arnica at the same time as morphine?”

      Your statement negates all my efforts in trying to help you.

  56. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    I really appreciate your kind responses in trying to help me. You will excuse me since I am too scared after reading all the press about Antibiotics etc.

    I will follow your advice on pre-surgery and post-surgery intake of Arnica 30c. Please confirm that you meant wet dose in post surgery as well?

    My URO suggested to use AVODART before surgery. He said it will squeeze my prostate, but its side effect is that it might make me impotent and this was confirmed by a friend also who took it and stopped taking it after noticing this side effect. What are your thoughts/observations on this?

    • Joe says:

      You must consider yourself as being very fortunate as you located my Website in time to guide you at a critical time in your life.

      My therapy is always based on the Wet dose and surgery does not change my “Joepathy”.

      Do not take Avodart.
      “He said it will squeeze my prostate, but its side effect is that it might make me impotent”

      It cannot Squeeze your prostate and will result in rendering you impotent.

  57. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    I am completing 3 weeks of CIPRO 500mg today. I was with my Uro this morning and the right testicle still is painful to touch and has a bit of swelling, so this time Uro prescribed Levaquin 500mg for 10 days, saying it is stronger than Cipro. I am skeptical. 3 weeks of Cipro did not show adverse side effects. Will Levaquin be the same too?

  58. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    I had a general question. Is the wet dose recommended for all medicines / illnesses or only preferred in some situations?

  59. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    I feel I do not breathe deep as a habit. Sometimes, I take a deep breath intentionally. When talking, sometimes, I have to yawn to take in air. I yawn often whenever I need more air in my lungs. My posture is not upright but stooped, squeezing my lungs. Kindly prescribe me a medicine.

    For last few years, once a year, I have an asthma attack whereby I am not able to breathe air into my lungs despite forcing, and I have to call in emergency medical help who give me Ventolin and Advair inhalers besides Steroids like Prednisone etc. I use the inhalers for a few days and then feel OK to not need them.

    This year in April, I started having difficulty urinating and started taking Sabal Ser Q since that used to cure it before. Unfortunately, at the same time, I had an asthma attack and was given prednisone and inhalers. That, i believe, caused my homeo medicine ineffective and caused my prostate to grow to block urine, 15 days later, forced to use a catheter to drain urine. Then I took SABAL SER Q for 3 months but when catheter was removed after 3 months, not a single drop of urine came out despite 5 hours of trying while my bladder was pushing and I was in pain.
    What are your thoughts on this?

  60. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Dividing the posts by month fragment an individual’s posts. Is it possible to not divide them by month and keep each thread together?

  61. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    My infection is almost gone but still not 100%. I am thinking of delaying the surgery till my infection is 100% cured. How much should I delay the operation to ensure my infection is gone and my muscles get healed.
    Meanwhile, I am continuing taking Arnica 30C WD three times a day and have stopped Conium 6C as advised by you.
    I was reading that TEREBINTHINUM QC is prescribed for my condition where no urine is output.Do you suggest me taking it?
    Again, appreciate your kind help and continued supporting me,

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that the infection you were suffering from is now stabilized.

      “How much should I delay the operation to ensure my infection is gone and my muscles get healed.”
      I am surprised that you are considering delaying the surgery as you are at the optimum time to have it done IMMEDIATELY.

      You cannot possibly continue to live with a catheter as it will only lead to infection. I know what it involves as I have gone through the same agony that you have suffered till I had my Retropubic Prostatectomy (the classic open surgery) which was current till a few years back was done in 2002 when I was 72 years old. I am now 87 in October and although I had a few problems in 2006 which I treated myself with the same therapy I prescribed for you, I have not had any problems for over 5 years.

      The new surgical techniques used are far less traumatic in comparison to the open surgery and you MUST have the surgery performed IMMEDIATELY.

      You will be rid of all your pain in just 3 days.

  62. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    I am trying to understand why you would say “I am surprised that you are considering delaying the surgery as you are at the optimum time to have it done IMMEDIATELY”.
    I was delaying to ensure to give healing time to my testicles and prostate area after the infection is controlled.

    • Joe says:

      You first consulted me on August 15 and I have patiently answered all your 18 posts up to today.
      You must understand however that I cannot continue advising you to submit to surgery and spend my time to help to build up your courage to have surgery IMMEDIATELY.

      You are the patient and I cannot waste my time in responding to your posts on almost a daily basis in the future.

  63. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Regarding your note below, please clarify whether to use Arnica 200c or 30c for pain management after major surgery.

    SUBSTITUTE FOR MORPHINE POST MAJOR SURGERY 200c and 30c
    I have used this myself after my Retropubic Prostatectomy and can confidently recommend it for use after any major surgery. When I regained consciousness I noticed the Morphine syringe attached to the IV line and promptly ordered it removed to the consternation of the nursing staff and the surgeon, who warned me that I could even suffer from a major shock due to the pain without the morphine.

I was discharged on the 5th day and walked to my car. They were all amazed at my extremely quick recovery at 73 years.

  64. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Appreciate your continued support. I am lined up for surgery in November and will follow your advice for pain management (Arnica 30C WD – every 2 hours then (after how long?) 3 hours. I am also taking Arnica 30C WD once at night until the surgery.
    What is your opinion about taking Arnica 1M before surgery and Staphisagria 1M after surgery to help in recovery?
    Once again, I feel indebted to your continued support for me.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to learn that you have finally decided to have surgery but I cannot understand the reason why you have put it off for another month as it is essential that you get rid of your catheter IMMEDIATELY. You must understand that you run the risk of infection from the constant mess with your catheter and I presume that you are taking Cipro daily which you were at first very reluctant to take due to your concern about its after effects, none of which occurred.

      The Arnica 30c in the Wd Protocol I used pre and post surgery is:
      I dose taken twice daily (which I had done for many years.)
      I dose taken early morning on D Day
      1 dose taken every 2 hours Day 1
      1 dose taken every 3 hours Day 2
      1 dose taken twice daily thereafter.

      You will make Arnica 30c by inserting just 3 drops of the Alcohol into 500ml distilled water in a glass bottle and take 5ml as a dose.

      “What is your opinion about taking Arnica 1M before surgery and Staphisagria 1M after surgery to help in recovery?”

      I have no opinion on using the remedies you listed above and I would warn you against using Arnica 1M pre surgery as this can be considered as dangerous.

      My final advice is that you enter hospital IMMEDIATELY and have surgery done using the current Laser method which was not available at the time I had my own open surgery in 2002.

      I predict that your recovery will be very fast and that you will be home in just 3 days.

      Feel free to report on your recovery in a few days after surgery.

  65. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Appreciate your kind concern. The surgery is scheduled for 3-November based on the line up and Surgeon’s other commitments.

    I will follow your kind advice of taking medicines you prescribed and will report back after the surgery.

    If you do not mind tell me what is the difference in the effect between wet dose and liquid dose of a medicine. Is Wet dose effect the same as taking liquid dose? Can it be done for any medicine?

  66. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    My prostate laser TURP (growth of prostate gland were burnt by laser)was done on 3-Nov as scheduled. I was given spinal anesthesia, and after surgery, surgeon put a 3-way catheter to flush out any scabs. Next day, this catheter was pulled out. Immediately, blood started oozing out. initially, urine was coming out in drops. To expel urine, I had to apply a lot of pressure and slowly, drops of urine converted to light stream but there is a lot of burning while urine was expelled, I was in pain though its manageable. I feel temperature but thermometer showed normal temperature.
    I am drinking water. Also, urine is coming very frequently and I have to scream due to burning in urethra. Luckily, I do have control to hold urine while I rush to the toilet.

    Can you please advise me the homeopathic medicine to get rid of burning while urine is expelled out. Its very painful (burning| to urinate, and makes me scream in pain.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to learn that your TURP Laser surgery was done 2 days ago and that you are experiencing some pain. I am very glad to learn that “Luckily, I do have control to hold urine while I rush to the toilet.” This indicates that your Sphincter Valve has not been damaged as some patients who have consulted me have reported that they have lost control and I have had to prescribe remedies to do so.

      You can add Hypericum 200c in the Wd taken every 3 hours to help the pain.
      You will continue the Arnica 30c taken every 3-4 hours today to help in the healing process.

      It is very likely that you will be discharged today.

  67. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,
    Forgot to mention that I am taking Arnica 30C WD immediately after surgery every 2 hours.

  68. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Appreciate your kind attention. May God give you long life to continue serving the suffering.
    To slightly modify what I said before, I am using diapers and urine is leaking without control, but at times, I do feel pressure to void and rush to toilet. During that time, I do have control.
    One thing peculiar is that on the right to my toilet seat, there is a counter and when I lean on it, I get a better stream as if the pressure is relieved by leaning to the right and making the void path more open. Is that info useful. I remember having the same issue a few days before my prostate grew to completely block urine.
    I am also taking Conium 6WD and Arnoca 6C WD as per your standard advice and will add hypericum as per your advice above.
    I do not know if it made a difference but I took Anrica 1M an hour befpre surgery and Staphisagria 1M right after.
    My void was pink next day, and they pulled the 3-way catheter the same day.
    I had gone to the family doctor and he gave me Cipro (twice a day for a week) for burning since he found infection and blood in urine, and also he gave me Tylenol that reduced the pain and burning. Last nighty, I would feel the pressure had to rush to toilet every 15 minutes to void, so could not get a good rest.

    Again, I appreciate your kind attention to my case, and pulling me through this difficult situation, without which I would not find strength to go through.

    Waiting for your kind advice,

    • Joe says:

      It is not Tylenol that is the cause of your constipation. It is due to your liver working overtime to filter the chemicals used in the anesthesia and helping the body to do return back to normal at the expense of not doing its original job of regulating bodily functions.

      You can get an Enema done to ensure that the stool is softened to enable you to expel it as this will cause many other problems for a few days.
      You must increase your water intake and also eat fruits like Papaw, Bananas, Prunes and Figs.

      You stated:
      “I do not know if it made a difference but I took Anrica 1M an hour befpre surgery and Staphisagria 1M right after.”

      I did not prescribe this and you are obviously following the therapy from other ‘experts’. You are fortunate that your surgery was not affected by the 1M of both remedies and it is possible that the current distress you are suffering from was directly caused by the high 1M potencies of both remedies.

      I believe that you are aware that I have been through the same surgery but in the old fashioned manner of a Retropubic Prostatectomy and the advice I have given you up to now is based on my personal experience.

  69. Nusrat says:

    Moreover, Tylenol3 has given a severe constipation. Before taking it, poti was excreted almost always with urine voiding, but after taking Tylenol3, no poti and its so uncomfortable causing blockage in urine voiding as well.

    • Nusrat says:

      Dr. Joe, Sir,

      Appreciate your kind attention. May God give you long life to continue serving the suffering.
      I am making progress. I am taking CIPRO for infection. Also, I am taking probiotic to overcome the side effects.
      Although I wear diaper but I am not leaking as much urine. Last night I was getting the urgency to rush to toilet every 15 minutes and I had to apply pressure to void. Constipation is gone and now with urine void, I am passing soft stool pieces. I clean my private areas with a wash pipe so no messing with tissues.
      I am continuing taking Hypericum200C WD every 3 hours, Arnica 30CWD as per your advice.
      Again my heart prays for you Sir for helping the suffering. We need more people like you to make this world a better place. I informed about your website all the homeopathic doctors I came across with and they really appreciate your hard work and dedication.
      Generally, homeo doctors will keep you hooked to return and pay their fee weekly till life.
      Will keep you posted with further progress,

  70. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Hope you are doing fine. Just an update on my situation:
    I stopped wearing diapers since there are no leaks. Last night, I had periods of better sleep and had a few weird dreams too 🙂
    Continuing CIPRO and I can feel my testicles a bit swollen and sensitive to touch.
    I am hoping my 15 minutes interval between Pee’ing will get stretched.
    Continuing with Conium WD, Arnica WD and Hypericum 200 WD as per you advice.

  71. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Updating on my situation:
    I am getting some sleep but the interval after which I wake is between 30-60 minutes.
    CIPRO is continuing and the right testicle is still inflamed so doctor gave me further 3 days of CIPRO. I feel my urethra is inflamed also though passing urine is not burning. I am hoping CIPRO will fix that as well.

    • Joe says:

      I hope that you now realize that you are suffering today from the many weeks of living with your catheter which has scarred the delicate tissue internally and will take some time to heal. The Arnica and Conium you are taking will also help in this process.

      I am happy with your progress up to now but am concerned at your news “the right testicle is still inflamed “. You will continue with the Cipro as prescribed.

      I hope that you are not spending your time sitting or sleeping as exercise is essential to enable your body to heal.

      Drink plenty of water.

  72. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    Today’s update:

    While sleeping, I feel pressure, rush to toilet. As I sit I need to bend forward to have my knees on thighs to pass urine easily. Once the stream ends, I bend to the right over the counter (on the right to my toilet seat) and slightly twist my lower body and that starts another stream and a few pieces of feaces (soft and thin) slip through as well. It takes about 10 minutes on the seat to feel finished. This cycle is repeated almost every 30-45 minutes.
    Strange I had to adopt the same position to relieve myself when my prostate was growing until it completely blocked urine. Its almost as if the cycle is reversing itself.
    I still feel infection in testes and for that taking CIPRO. Its not comfortable to sit on a chair squarely and I sit supporting my weight on one hip bone.

    If you feel I need another medicine, please let me know,

    • Joe says:

      I feel sorry for the trauma that you are suffering post surgery which I did not undergo at all with my open surgery. I too was suffering from urine incontinence at first and a total blockage but after surgery I was back on my feet in 3 days thanks to the Arnica 30c every 2-3 hours and I did not have any pain in 48 hours and walked to my transport on Day 5.

      Laser surgery is supposed to be the answer but as you have now discovered this is a fallacy as you are suffering perhaps more than you did pre surgery.

      You are advised to consult your Uro to ascertain the reason for your trauma.

      It is possible that the TURP Laser surgery damaged the Sphincter valve in the bladder which seems to trigger the urge to pee every half hour. I have treated many patients with my default therapy Arnica 6c with Conium 6c and this usually fixes the problem in a couple of days. I am concerned at these remedies not helping you today and your Uro must be consulted ASAP

      I regret that there are no other remedies to help you. You may like to know that as far as I am aware, I am the only Homeopath to prescribe my Joepathy as others use many other remedies all of which are completely useless.

  73. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    I remain indebted to you for your help. My lower abdomen is sore and urethra is inflamed, and its getting worse. I am hoping CIPRO will cure the infection. I will try to see my URO but getting an appointment is difficult, usually take s a week at least.
    I am continuing with Conium and Arnica therapy.

    • Joe says:

      Suggest you phone the hospital and get an appointment on a SOS basis as your Uro cannot just abandon you when you need to consult him urgently as you seem to be suffering unnecessarily post TURP surgery.

      I do doubt that you suffer from some infection as the Cipro would have ensured that any bacteria would have been treated. In my case I remember that I was on Cipro for 3 weeks but I did not have any after effects from the drug and did not also suffer from the symptoms you listed.

      You must consider yourself as being very fortunate that you consulted me as your agony would have been far more traumatic otherwise.

  74. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,
    I indeed consider myself v fortunate in having you to help me through this difficult period.
    Being a layman, I have started wondering if the problems I am facing at this stage may not be related to my prostate but to my bladder. Please hear me out and help me with your valuable advice.
    When I sit on toilet, urine stream starts. I bend forward, place my elbows on my knees and stream gets stronger then ends. Next I bend to the right and stretch my hand to hold the counter there almost like lying on the right while sitting on the toilet. That starts another stream. Today after I felt I am done, I shifted my position on the toilet to move slightly forward and that started another stream and a few pieces of soft feaces slipped through as well.
    I am thinking that surgeon has burnt away the prostate muscle that were blocking the passage of urine, and the urine is passing through but the movements I have to make and the frequency faced is due to the bladder. Could that be right? I had these issues before my urine was completely blocked and SABAL SER Q used to help, but it stopped working after due to an asthma attack, doctors pumped steroids, inhalers and antihistamine into me, and that I have read has caused prostate to flare up like it did in my case 6 months ago.
    Just to have another fresh look at the problem, if you feel appropriate, could we involve the other homeopathic doctor working with you to take a second opinion? Dr. Saeed, I believe.
    Again, I highly appreciate you being there for me and helping me through this. I would not have courage otherwise to go through this. May GOD give you rewards for the kind work you are doing and keep you blessed in your life. You are definitely in the prayers of so many like me.

    • Joe says:

      My colleague Dr Arshad Ali Saeed will take over your case as he has more clinical experience than me to do so.

      He practices in London and he will contact you on my Website ASAP.

      ATTENTION DR ARSHAD ALI SAEED

  75. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Arshad Ali Saeed, AOA, Sir,

    I am grateful to Dr. Joe for referring my case to you. I would want to summarize my condition here to help you arrive at a suitable cure.
    In 2008, I used to pee and finish only to find 2 minutes later that I need to go again. Also, at times, I would get an urgency to go for pee and I would have to rush. Also, at times, I would have pain in starting the urine stream but once it started, stream will flow without any difficulty.
    H/Doctors prescribed Digitalis 200 and that used to help in starting to urinating.
    Last 2-3 years, I started having blockage in urinating and a h/doctor prescribed Sabal Ser Q that would take a week to normalize the stream.
    But I would still have to go for pee almost every hour.
    In April this year, I started having frequent urination issue and started taking Sabal Ser Q. Then I had an asthma attack and in emergency doctors pumped steroid, anti histamine, prednisone in me, that I believe, nullified the effect of homeopathic medicine and my prostate started to grow slowly starting to block urine until 10 days later, my urine completely blocked and doctors put a catheter in.
    H/Doctor gave me Sabal Ser Q for 3 months assuring me it will reduce the prostate size and rid me of the catheter. But when the catheter was removed after 3 months, not a single drop of urine came out while my bladder was pushing. For 5 hours my bladder kept pushing making it very uncomfortable until a new catheter was put in.
    For another 3 months, I was just delaying the surgery hoping the prostate size will decrease until finally I gave up and submitted to the surgery.
    Finally, Laser TURP was done on 3-Nov. Surgeon used a laser to vaporize excess prostate tissue. Next day, the catheter was removed and I was told to try to pee. Initially blood came out then urine mixed with blood. Slowly I started getting a stream of urine.
    Details of my current post op condition for last 2 weeks is given above that you may review.
    Today, Urine has burning and initial stream is very dark and could be having blood. Today 10 days of my antibiotic course of CIPROfloxacin finished and tomorrow I will have my urine tested again for infection to see if more antibiotic is needed.
    I have to go for pee almost every hour and I go through pain and discomfort voiding urine as detailed in the last two weeks above.
    I feel my lower abdomen as well as my seat muscles are sore and making it difficult to sit. I prefer to sit on one hip and sit in bed resting against the head of the bed.

    Please feel free to ask any questions if needed.

    Again appreciate your time and effort in helping me get better.

    • Nusrat says:

      Dr. Arshad, AOA,

      Last two days, I have to rush to pee every hour day and night, and initial stream is pinkish bloody. I am feeling very week. I am having to wake up every hour during night. I am slowly getting very depressed and feeling very exhausted.

  76. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,
    I think Dr Arshad is not looking at this section.

  77. Nusrat says:

    Dr. Joe, Sir,

    I am failing to get attention from Dr. Arshad so far. Meanwhile, my condition is improving. I was able to sleep for longer — at times 2-3 hours, so feel better. Initial stream continues to be rusty coloured blood but I feel better. I am continuing with Arnica30C WD at night and Conium6C WD twice a day, as well as Hypericum 200C WD every 3-4 hours.
    My seat muscles continue to be sore and it is still very uncomfortable to sit in a hard chair on a desktop PC , so I prefer using a laptop in my bed.
    Cipro is finished. At last urine check taken a day after Cipro finished, there were some infection cells in urine but my testicles are not swollen just slight uncomfortable to touch. Doctor called me to check a few days later, to decide if I need more CIPRO.
    I remain indebted to you for your kind attention and support. May God bless you for the kind work you are doing for the suffering.

      Dr. Arshad or Dr. Joe, Sir,

      I am awaiting Dr. Arshad’s attention on my condition listed above after referral by respected Dr. Joe.
      An update: I am getting 3-4 hours sleep at a stretch now before waking up to pee. Sometimes, there is rusty colored blood in the initial stream and sometimes small pieces of scab pass in urine.
      I still have a bit of discomfort touching the right testicle. Also it hangs lower than the other one. My urine does not have infection though so the doctor stopped CIPRO. Is it something to worry about?

      Also, I noticed a few drops of urine pass after the urine stream is finished when I press the area between anus and scrotum as if small amount of urine gathers there. Such was the case before my prostate enlargement. Is there a cure for it?

      I did some gardening and felt weakness in my arms raking the lawn so I am doing it in short breaks. I am wondering if CIPRO has affected my tendons (one of its side effects)? and you could prescribe a medication for it.
