The Treatment of Styes and Chalazions with Arnica

http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/298837/

Chalazions usually form almost immediately after Styes on the Eyelids. This is due to the lack of blood flow to the hair follicles in the Eye lashes where bacteria that descend on the eyes and are cleared away by the eyelids are not washed away by the blood flow which in a very few individuals is low,  and results in frequent Styes which do not ‘pop’ with the discharge of the pus and soon harden to a Chalazion which has to be scooped out surgically. The hardened mass cannot be treated by any homeopathic remedy and the only solution is to have them scooped out surgically by a competent Opthalmic surgeon.

Arnica will ensure that the formation of Styes is prevented in the future but it will have to be taken on a regular daily basis for some time into the future if the patient like the 15 year old child in this case below is to be free of Styes in the future.

i need your help please please help me. Report post to moderator Re: chalazionFrom Joe De Livera on 2011-10-06Arnica 30c in the Wet dose will ensure that your Chalazions do not recur in the future but unfortunately the one you have today, which you state has been subjected to 2 surgeries, cannot be helped by this remedy. The surgery is not too invasive and will have to be done to finally fix the problem. You must also know that your existing Chalazion is a storehouse for bacteria and there is every chance that more infection can follow from the same bacteria in your lesion which will spread to other follicles of the eye lashes.

The reason is due to the fact that the flow of blood in your eyelids seems to be very low in your case and you would have observed that you suffer from frequent Styes forming in the past due to the invasion of bacteria into the hair follicles of your eye lashes which should normally be dealt with without the formation of yet another sty.

Arnica will increase the blood supply into the eyelids and thereby prevent the formation of yet another Sty which ends up as a Chalazion but you will have to take it for the rest of your life in the manner described below.

You will take a dose which is just a teaspoonful, twice daily for a month and then reduce it to just once nightly to ensure that your Styes will not recur in the future. It is perfectly safe to be taken on a long time basis in the Wet dose and you may like to know that I have taken it myself nightly for the last 16 years as a general ‘tonic’ to the consternation of my classical homeopathic colleagues. I am 82 years old and have proved that Arnica is an amazing remedy which has helped me and many others to maintain my state of health in a manner that no other remedy can possibly equate.

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.

Do not have your surgery done for at least 10 days after you start on the therapy prescribed above to enable the Arnica to help with clearing up the debris in the hair follicles of your eye lashes.

Report progress from time to time on this Forum.

You will have to get it scooped out by the same Opthalmic surgeon who attended to you in the past. There is unfortunately no alternative to surgery.

The Arnica therapy will guarantee that you do not ever get any more Styes which harden into Chalazions in the future.

    Dear Joe

    I have been taking Nat Phos 6X, dosage 2 tablets (after each of the 3 meals) as you adviced. This has caused me constipation, what can I do?
    Others have had the same problem too.

  2. Swamy Muthu says:

    You did not prescribe it individually but on a forum Homeopathyandmore for hormonal imbalances.

    I have to take something else for it then? Can I try to reduce dosage, 2 times 2 tablets?

    • Joe says:

      Swamy

      I cannot remember prescribing Nat Phos 6x to anyone for Hormonal imbalance on the H & M.

      This condition is not at the type that can be helped without the necessary tests after the reason has been identified.

      I regret that I cannot help you on my website.

      • Swamy Muthu says:

        I am sure that you have claimed on homeopathyandmore forum that you can treat male boobs with that remedy. Then why not me, I have also that condition.

          I hope that you will understand that when consulting a physician the least that the patient can do is to present his case in toto to the consultant to enable him to advice the patient.

          In your case you mentioned:
          “You did not prescribe it individually but on a forum Homeopathyandmore for hormonal imbalances.”

          If as I presume you suffer from enlarged breasts in males aka Gynecomastia the remedy that has helped many is Nat Phos 6x.

          You can take 2-3 tablets twice daily and report progress in a month.

      To Hyacinth Sunethra Dharmasena

      I am indeed glad that you visited my blog and that you appreciate my single handed effort to introduce Eupatorium Perfoliatum 200c in the Wet dose, which I have used to CURE many patients some of whom were resurrected within a few hours before they passed away. They all seemed to be cured in some miraculous way shortly after they first used my remedy in the Wet dose, which I always dispense free of charge, in a bottle of medicated drinking water.

      I dispense the remedy free of charge and give it to anyone who presents Dengue or the other Viral fever which closely resembles Dengue but without the loss of platelets, which is currently raging in Sri Lanka, giving the doctors in the government and private hospitals a very busy time, while the parents suffer agony, not knowing whether the victim suffers from Dengue or this other Viral Fever and worst of all, if the patient will survive.

      The problem I face today is that the doctors in the hospitals, both government and private, have all been brainwashed into believing that all Homeopathic remedies are just a lot of eyewash and cannot possibly work to cure any disease least of all, Dengue. They have steadfastly refused to use this remedy, which is used extensively in India, which cures Dengue and the Virus Fever. even though they have admitted publicly that they do not have any CURE for this deadly disease in their Pharmacopeia.

      I believe that this stubborn attitude which they display today is perhaps prompted by the power that Big Pharma wields over these doctors who are sworn under their Hippocratic oath to SAVE LIVES. It is unfortunate that they have interpreted their oath to be only effective when it involves the use of drugs and NOT Homeopathic remedies, even though they have ample evidence that this remedy works in 99% of the cases that I have treated.

      It has now been proved that this remedy is effective to CURE this other Virus borne disease which is now in full spate all over the Island and the Mayor of Colombo has ordered that the Municipal clinics will stock this remedy which will be distributed free of charge to anyone who has consulted the doctor in charge for a fever.

      It is my hope that the hospitals will also carry this remedy in bottles which will be medicated with the remedy and will be given to the patients who present a fever which is a Virus Flu.

      Thank you for commenting on my Blog.

    Hello Joe, I have been following your posts on several homeopathy websites. Could you assist me with a chalazion problem please.
    I had a stye which developed in to a chalazion on my bottom left eyelid back in 2003.I initially used ice on it the day it developed which made it shrink halfway. However, it stayed as a painless chalazion. I then developed another chalazion on my top lid and took antibiotics which got rid of the top chalazion.
    In 2006 I finally had surgery which reduced the chalazion a bit. but now it is smaller but extremely painful. What remedy do you suggest as my eyelid doesnt look fully healed and feels infected. Ive been back and forth to opthamologists at least 30 times in the past 9 years ive tried steroid injections, warm compresses, apple cider vinegar etc.. with no result. I started taking arnica 30c today do you have any suggestions? Thank you

    • Joe says:

      Ysuf

      If, as you state, you have been reading the therapy I have prescribed for Styes and Chalazions you would have read that the therapy I have prescribed which is:

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

      Arnica filters the blood and thereby improves the circulation and it is this simple fact that helps a patient like you who has suffered for some 9 years in the past, to stop their formation permanently. This remedy will ensure that the blood reaches the Hair Follicles of the eye lashes which is where the infection for that next sty originates.

      You will however have to take Arnica 30 twice daily in the Wet dose for about a month and later taper it down to just nightly for life as I have done for the last 17 years. I have proved that at age 83 that it has helped me in a manner that no other drug or tonic could have done.

      You have stated “Ive been back and forth to opthamologists at least 30 times in the past 9 years ive tried steroid injections, warm compresses, apple cider vinegar etc.. with no result.”

      You can rest assured that you will NEVER have to repeat this performance in the future.

      Please report your response in a few weeks or earlier when you discover relief.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack aka Liquid Dilution in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.

      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

    Hello Joe I have been using the arnica now for 8 days, my eye tends to be less swollen when I wake up first thing in the morning. However, after 30 minutes it swells up as if that eyelid is blocked and the fluids are collecting. I also get pain in the eye as if blood is rushing to the area to heal it but it never heals and all this is after the surgery, steriod injections and all sorts I have been through. I am literally at my wits end. Could the arnica possibly promote healing in the area long term? I will carry on the treatment as you have mentioned and update you in a months time. Thanks for your assistance Sir.

    • Joe says:

      Yusuf

      There is little that I can do to undo the carnage that has been caused in your eyelid by your surgeon with the drugs and the surgery that he has subjected you to.

      You have already discovered that the Arnica has helped you in some manner in the short space of 8 days and it is to be hoped that it will continue to do so in the future. You can help in the recovery process by fomenting with a soft towel dipped in hot water to promote the flow of blood which is required to heal the damaged tissue.

      For the record please confirm that the Arnica you are using is the 30c potency and that you have made it according to my instructions in the Wet dose which I shall copy below.

      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.

      It is likely that your son suffers from some form of Eczema and I shall copy my default therapy which should hopefully help him.

      The remedy for Eczema is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose which is made up as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol 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 it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

      Take a capful of the remedy water twice daily and also apply the water on your lesions as often as possible.

      You should observe some improvement in your condition on about the third day into this therapy.

      Please report your response on the third day.

      It is understood that you will not take any other drug while using the Arnica therapy.

    Hi Joe,

    I have done a bit of online research on reoccurring styes and have seen your responses/recommendations for styes on various websites.

    I am a 30 year old female and have been experiencing styes off and on for about 10 years. In the past 2-3 years, they have been occurring more frequently. I take preventive measures on a daily basis. I was out my eyes everyday with salt water, I buy new make up frequently, I eat a healthy diet, etc. Almost every week I feel one coming on and I am usually able to fight it from forming by excessive cleaning. However, a stye does typically form every couple months. I am absolutely at my wit’s end with them, which brings me to the research that I have recently done.

    I know that you are quick to recommend Arnica 30 (wet dose). What are the main risks in taking this solution? How does increased blood flow help eliminate styes? Does it also effect the bacteria that causes the stye? What is your opinion on Pulsatilla 30 and how does it compare to Arnica 30? I have also read some information that suggested that it is not okay to take either of these products during menstruation, is that correct?

    I know I have many questions, but any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi

    I have just had surgery on 2 either styes or chalazions that had ruptured and had granuloma form on top.

    My eye feels better but I still have the lumps where they were, I am hoping for these to go down over the next few weeks and months

    I am very worried about these returning and would like to try using one of your suggested remedies

    What do you think would be best for me? and how long do you expect a 500ml bottle of remedy to last? does it keep ok for that length of time as I thought once a bottle of water was open you had to consume within a few days

    I look forward to your response and I am so glad I found your site

    Juan

    • Joe says:

      It is possible that the lumps you are noticing after surgery for your hard Chalazions may reduce in a few days. If however this does not occur you will have to consult your eye surgeon again as it is not impossible that he had left some part of the hard shell of the lesion in your eyelid tissue after scooping out the rest of the lesion.

      I have suffered from a similar condition about 20 years ago when I was subjected to Styes on a regular basis many of which popped. I consulted many eye doctors but they were not able to prescribe some drug to stop this almost weekly recurrence.

      I discovered that Arnica 30c in the Wet dose helped to STOP this weekly insult to my eyelids and have taken it nightly ever since.

      I would suggest that you use my therapy for LIFE as I have done and you are advised to study my article on:

      ARNICA THE MIRACLE REMEDY
      http://www.joedelivera.com/?p=66

      I shall copy my default therapy for Acne below and this is equally applicable to PREVENT the formation of Stys which can harden into Chalazions.

      The remedy that has helped many is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily orally, and also applied directly on the lesions on the face or on the eyelids as often as is possible, to keep the lesions damp.

      It is essential that the patient takes ONE dose of the Arnica 6c nightly just before bed for at least 6 months after the problem has been resolved as there is every chance that the lesions will return during this period, otherwise.

      The use of a spray device in which the medicated water can be stored and can be sprayed on the acne lesions or the eyelids without directly touching them is best.

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

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Alcohol pack aka 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 it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

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