How Nat Phos 6x CURED a baby suffering from Baby GERD

I am copying the conversation I had with the mother of an Infant baby girl who was suffering from Baby GERD which may be of interest to mothers whose babies suffer from the same problem.

Hi Joe, my daughter responded to NP the first day, when I started her on half pill she started to throw up again, should I keep her on one pill on the second day also? And if she doesn’t respond to NP what should I use nox vomic or arnica 30 c? Does arnica liquid extract works the same as arnica 30 c?

You have not indicated how old your Baby is and for how long she has suffered from Reflux and for how long you have given her Nat Phos 6x which is my default remedy for Baby GERD, and if you have given her a tablet after every feed.

You have asked for instructions to use Nux Vomica but this is a remedy that may only be used under supervision and at this stage it is best not to use it till you give the details requested above.

You will NOT give baby Arnica as this is a remedy I prescribe for the mother. Do not experiment with the various remedies I have prescribed to hundreds of mothers as they may cause more harm than good.

I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I hope will help your baby too.

The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.
You will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

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

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

It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.

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

Report progress in 24 hours or as often as you wish on this thread.

I noticed that she started to have acid reflux about 30 days ago it was mild I toke her to the doctor and he confirmed and it started to get worse until I gave her NP she it’s not throwing up every bottle but still throwing up once or twice a day every day.

Hi Joe, my two previous post above say a lil about my daughter improvement, thank God and thank for your help my daughter is almost 100% acid reflux free, I stopped giving her NP on the third day and she started to throw up once a day on day 3 and 4…. I stopped again on day 5 and she didn’t threw up for 24 hrs, but day 6 she threw up again so she is back on half NP after every bottle, I also noticed that the day she didn’t throw up her burps still have the smell of acid reflux on it or sulfur smell, you asked me to let you know if NP alone wouldn’t help so you could prescribe her something to go along with NP. I’m so happy to see her improvement and that we are almost there. Ty in advance.

Glad to note that she has responded well and is almost well.

I note that you have stopped the NP for a few days till she throws up again.
You can avoid this status by giving her half tablet after every feed and you must know that Nat Phos 6x is NOT to be considered as a DRUG. It is a Cell Salt which works in a different manner to heal. Do some reading on Cell Salts on the web.

You do NOT need the other remedy as she has responded to the NP alone and you must follow my instructions above.

I believe that NP it’s safe just was wondering if she would need something else to reinforce NP as she is on day 6 taking it or if I just keep giving her half NP for a lil longer and for how long would be ok to keep giving her NP in case she still need it? She will have her two months Doctor app. On the 6th should I advise the pediatrician that she is on NP? She will have her two months shot I read your post about wait with the shots but I have two more kids and I feel safe having her vaccinated.

As long as Nat Phos 6x is helping her at half tablet after a feed you can consider that you are fortunate as the majority of mothers have to resort to a full tablet after every feed.

You can safely give it to her for many more months in the future till she shows that her digestive system, which in the majority of babies is not fully developed, is able to cope with your breast milk without reflux.

You will be doing babies and their mothers a big favour if you spread the news to them and your pediatrician that Nat Phos 6x used as prescribed by me, helped your baby in a manner that the dangerous PPI drugs they usually prescribe, like Zantac Prevacid Nexium, cannot equal.

Hello Joe, my last report was that my daughter was on half NP after every bottle I had to put her back on one full NP because she is not responding to half NP anymore…today she threw up 3times which she was spitting up once a day before, at nap or sleeping time she is always swallowing and gagging more often cuz of the reflux comes up and down to her throat guess she has silent reflux also, she can only have one ounce of milk every two hrs but she still crying for more if I do give her 2 ounces every two or three hrs she will eventually throw up, she is so skinny right now even knowing she is doing a lot better spitting up much less but still don’t seem gained any weight since her last visit to the doctor…will report her weight on Monday as she is going for her 2 months doctor visit.

On the basis of your latest report, I believe that it is time to give her Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose which I presume that you have read on this thread how to make. (3 drops in a 500ml bottle of spring water).

You will give her just 1 teaspoonful twice daily and report progress in 24 hours.

I note that you will visit your doctor in a few days and you must know that vaccinating her when she is still suffering from GERD will only make her condition much worse.

My advice is to vaccinate her after she is a year old.

Re: Attn: Joe De Livera – Infant Acid Reflux and Constipation From Joe De Livera on 2014-01-06
Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose is NOT the reason for her current distress. NV reinforces the action of the NP6x and helps to reduce the acidity in the stomach of both adults and babies as it accelerates the passage of food or milk down the digestive system.

If as you have already discovered, she fares better on a FULL tablet of NP, you can safely continue to give her this dosage after every feed.

I tend to be cautious in all my prescriptions even though I am certain that my Wet dose method of prescribing remedies is the Ultimate Cure of all ailments.

You may use NV 30c for another day and if it does not help, you can stop it.

Re: Attn: Joe De Livera – Infant Acid Reflux and Constipation From Joe De Livera on 2014-01-06
In my experience dating back to about 40 years of helping with my own version of Homeopathy which has been labelled “Joepathy”, I have observed that many babies are born with a digestive system which is not fully able to digest their mother’s breast milk. My first born son who is now 45 years of age also suffered from this same ailment where he would suckle at the breast and do a projectile vomit of the curdled milk often on my shoulder while I was carrying him after burping.

I was interested in this phenomenon and after some research with the few Homeopathic remedies I had in my stock at that time, I discovered that Nat Phos 6x was indeed the Ultimate remedy to treat Baby GERD. I gave it to my son and since that time, I did not hesitate to prescribe it for all babies who suffered from Baby GERD even though NP was not officially recognized in the classical texts for the treatment of this common ailment.

You are obviously not aware of the trauma that I suffered for the last 15 years as a result of deviating from the standard classical method of treating the “Symptoms presented by the patient” instead of treating the disease directly, which I did after faithfully following the classical textbooks in the treatment of disease which I further added to by purchasing Radar which is supposed to be the most extensive and expensive software available even today for the Homeopath on the computer. I did give it a fair chance and it was only when I discovered that it was designed to further the useof Homeopathic remedies based on various theoretical classical norms which did not work, that I decided to treat the disease head on, using the same therapy I had used in a similar case, like for instance treating Baby GERD with Nat Phos 6x, even though it is not listed for use in the classical Repertories. My feeling then and even today is that if any remedy cures a disease, it must cure a similar disease presented by the next patient.

My therapy caused some consternation in classical circles and I was criticized by many classical homeopaths even here on the ABC but I just refused to cow down to their demands to use Homeopathic remedies in the classical manner that they used, as I had sufficient evidence that they did not help the suffering patient, in this case a Baby suffering from GERD which you are now aware how it affected your Baby and you the parents.

I am glad to note that your Baby has responded to my “Joepathy” which incidentally is the term coined by the classical coterie of homeopaths who could see for themselves the CURES that resulted of the patient’s ailment with my therapy, but which they insisted was only a temporary cover-up of the ailment which would manifest itself in a more virulent form in later life. I am happy to state that this doomsday eventuality never occurred.

You may not be aware that I am 85 years of age and am NOT a professional Homeopath. I have been fascinated with this theory of Homeopathy and studied it in my own time since 1965 when I was cured of my frequent colds with a Homeopathic remedy by one of the first practitioners of Homeopathy in Sri Lanka. I am the CEO of a very old family owned business organization in Colombo, Sri Lanka and try to help all who seek my assistance free of charge.

Answering your question, NP is absolutely safe in use as I have often informed you, and you should soon discover that it will not be wanted anymore by baby when her own digestive system is able to cope and digest her milk and later on the solids, which I prefer to give after baby is 10 months of age.

I would also advise you not to vaccinate baby till she is over a year old as the terrible after effects of doing so at this age can be read on a search on Google.

    Hi Dr. De Livera,

    I tried posting this question a few days ago but can’t seem to find it on your website so thought I would try again.

    My daughter is 6 weeks and struggling with silent reflux. She doesn’t spit up/throw up but she has sour breath, swallows a lot, arches her head back and seems uncomfortable.

    I’m breastfeeding exclusively as well.

    My question is should I start her on 1/2 a tablet of the Nat Phos 6X since her symptoms aren’t severe?

    I also will start on the Nat Phos 6X, 2 after each meal and the Arnica 30c liquid twice a day per your instructions.

    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!

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

      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 Mr. De Livera,

        I realize that the Arnica is for ME ONLY not baby 🙂

        Since she is only 6 weeks, should I try 1/2 a tablet after a feeding rather than a full tablet? She weighs around 11 pounds.

        She also tends to cluster feed… lots of small meals which is better for her digestion right now. So, during a wakeful period, she usually feeds twice. I gave her a 1/2 tablet with each mini meal. Is that right? Or should I do 1/2 tablet for the 2 small feedings total?

        I’m going to try not doing in middle of night as logistically that is harder. She generally gets up only once. Would that throw everything off?

        Finally, she did seem better today with the tablets… very small improvements but still. She also slept A LOT! She’s a good sleeper to begin with but she slept more than usual. Not sure if you’ve seen this before but thought I would share.

        Thank you for your help! Oh, and loved reading your stuff on diabetes. I have a loved one with it and we’re gonna try the Arnica 6c.

        • Joe says:

          If she is happy with just half tablet, there is no reason to give her the full tablet or you may even stop giving it.
          I have observed that NP6x promotes sleep in both adults and babies and so does the Arnica which you would have observed if you have already taken it.

          I have since amended my “Joepathy” for Diabetes and am now prescribing Arnica 3c which is by far more effective.

          Do let me know how your patient responds. Some have confirmed a sudden drop of BS levels even below 100 which can be uncomfortable as it makes the patient feel restless and tired.

          • Gen says:

            Dr. De Livera,

            A day and a half into the Nat Phos 6X therapy and my baby is a new person! She is SO MUCH HAPPIER and SMILING and PEACEFUL. Praise God!

            Thank you!

            OK, I need to ask you what I do from here. Day 1: I gave her 5 1/2 tablets of Nat Phos 6X. She was REALLY sleepy on it so on Day 2, I decided to cut back. My sense was that was what you would recommend as well.

            Day 2: I gave her 2 1/2 tablets of Nat Phos 6X and she’s doing well. She still has some symptoms but they are less severe and it doesn’t seem to be effecting her temperament. Her breath is still a touch sour and she gagged once today. She also had the hiccups once and a few wet burps.

            I started taking the Nat Phos 6X after each meal (total of 6 per day) and I haven’t received the Arnica 30c yet.

            My question to you:

            – Should I keep decreasing the Nat Phos 6X with child? Or should I stay on the reduced dose of 2 1/2 tablets for another day or so? Not exactly sure how homeopathic goes so would love your input.

            – Should I, as breastfeeding mom, continue with the Nat Phos? I do have some acid stomach myself so perhaps this would be good? Should I also start taking the Arnica 30c when it arrives? How long would you recommend taking these remedies?

            Thank you kindly for your input!

              I am delighted to learn that your baby has responded so very quickly and I am confident that her digestive system will stabilize in a few days when she will not want any NP 6x. As long as you take the NP as prescribed she should be OK. You will also observe that it will reduce your weight by 1kg per day.

              NP 6x is NOT to be compared with a drug as it is a Cell Salt which is absolutely safe in use. Check Google for more information.

        Dr De Livera
        I have a 14 week old baby who has suffered with GERD for weeks. We were prescribed ranitidine but our baby developed signs of allergic reaction so stopped it after 2 days. We then used carobel which is a thickener. This stopped the vomiting but did not eliminate the pain from acid and our baby continued to gulp and make swallowing sounds, crying out from a deep sleep, sneezing and becoming congested by night.
        When baby was 8 weeks and 11lb, we started using one sachet of infant gaviscon for the GERD in 4oz feeds of neocate milk which was prescribed as baby showed signs of cows milk protein intolerance. This did not eliminate the GERD but made it more manageable along with 2-3 hourly feeds 3-4oz each feed and avoiding laying baby flat on her back. She would still have painful moments or periods where you could hear the gulping and swallowing, crying out in her sleep etc.
        I therefore searched for homeopathic remedies and came across your nat phos 6x and have found some challenges…
        Winding after each feed-
        You state winding after each feed is essential but we have found that despite trying for 10-15 minutes this has not been always been possible. When we can’t get her to burp and give her the nat phos she usually wakes up within the hour in pain until she is either sick or burps then settles down. Should we avoid giving the nat phos when winding has been unsuccessful?
        Administering nat phos-
        Our baby only eats 3-4oz every 3 hours from 7am-7pm them at 11pm and 3.30am. We attempt to give one tablet at the end of every feed except the 3.30am as this is the seventh feed in 24 hours and 6 tablets is the maximum dose for babies. Baby will not take the nat phos dissolved in milk by syringe or on tea spoon and spits it out or puts tongue in the way. We have tried dissolving the tablet in the last ounce of feed but she doesn’t always want it so ends up missing a tablet here and there.

        When we have managed to get a tablet in her she does seem to improve and sleep well but it is getting harder to do and today is the second day and has frankly been a nightmare as she missed two tablets because we couldn’t get it down her and the GERD gets worse.

        This evening I managed to get the tablet down her and she buried well, seemed happy when I lay her in her cot at first but became a bit fidgety for few minutes. She eventually settled but died a quiet cry and moan in her sleep as if in pain. She used to do this a lot before we started using gaviscon but stopped because it made her constipated.

        Questions:
        Is it ok to dissolve tablet in last ounce of feed?
        What should we do if she won’t finish feed?
        Will missing a tablet after a feed prevent the remedy working or just take longer?
        Should we not give the nat phos if we can’t get her wind up at the end of the feed?
        You say give nat phos immediately after a feed but sometimes she wants to wait 15-20 min before being able to finish the last ounce with nat phos in it. Is this ok even though it’s not immediately after

        Your advice would be greatly appreciated as we are tempted to give up after only 36 hours!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    I’m 29 years old, I was diagnose with endometriosis 4 years ago, going on 5. I went 10 months of none stop pain and bleeding, trying many many birth controls hoping for it to stop. If it did stop it was for 2 days the most. Then after the 10 months of trial and error my gynecologist preformed laparoscopy and after a week I finally stopped bleeding and my period went back to normal and has been normal for the past 4 years. Now since the end of October 2013 (going on 3 months now) it’s been happening again. My doctor (same doctor as before) did a pelvic ultrasound and regular ultrasound and they found 2 cysts, one on each of my ovaries (doctor says tiny) one measures 1.2 x 1.6 cm and the other 1.2 x 1.2 cm. and of course the endometriosis. I’m in a lot of pain, which he has prescribed me pain medication to take as needed, but I hate needing to take medication especially so often. Besides the pain I have had none stop bleeding. Were on the 5th type of birth control, sometimes doubling up a day and like last time it will stop for a couple of days and then I start to bleed again. At this point I have lost track and don’t even know if it is my period or the endometriosis. For the past week and a half, I don’t bleed regularly, I am bleeding when I use the restroom and the toilet fills up blood. I’m highly frustrated, my doctor says its not good to do another laparoscopy because I do want to have another child (I have a 7 year old) and of course I refuse to have a hysterectomy. Please if you can suggest anything, I would be more than grateful. Thank you.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Endometriosis and Chololate Cysts below:

      Your remedies are:

      Bellis Perennis 30c
      Arnica 30c
      Apis 6c

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

      Bellis Perennis reduces the Chocolate Cysts (CC) that are usually present with Endometriosis and also prevents the spread of the lesions internally.
      Apis 6c will help the body to reabsorb the Chocolate coloured fluid which fills them. US Scans taken 3 months into treatment prove that there is no trace of any colour in the fluid. The CC usually reduce about 1cm per month.
      Arnica will reduce your pain and the bleeding that many patients suffer from, some on a continuous daily basis.

      Please note that this therapy is not an instant fix to your problem and you may have to take it for some time into the future.

      Report your response in a week and after your next period.

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

      Please follow the instructions below to make the Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy.

      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 use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

    Hi. I’m a 47 y.o. male. I have a variety of conditions I’m attempting to treat. I’m not sure what the best approach is. Here’s the details:

    I’m suffering from joint pain in my knees and middle knuckles of both hands. There is no swelling, cold weather makes the pain marginally worse, exercise initially aggravates the pain then after a few minutes the pain lessens. I’m unable to do squats or lunges because my knees give out. I had these symptoms intermittently from the last 3 years.

    I also am very sensitive to perfumes and other perfumy smells; they give me a headache and make be feel a little spacy. I am also very susceptible to sinus headaches.

    I suffer from general fatigue and memory recall problems. When I’m talking sometimes I’ll completely forget what I was about to say. I also have a hard time recalling names and finding the correct words to use both when speaking and writing.

    One more issue is evening nausea after eating.

    I’m hoping these seemingly unrelated issues can be treated together. Let me know if you need any further information.

    Thank you!

    My brother was suffering from CTS(Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) on right wrist. After trying many options, the doctors recommenced surgery.
    I suggested technique of Joepathy the combination of Colocynth+Hypericum in wet doses. After 2 weeks, I got message that
    the pain is 75% gone.
    Thanks and all the best for the great service!
    Aditya.

    • Joe says:

      Thank you for your report.

      He will have to continue with the Colocynth but the Hypericum will only be needed if he experiences pain.
      He can start on Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily to ensure that the CTS does not recur which can occur in most cases that I have treated. The Arnica seems to help ensure a permanent cure.

      Report progress.

    Respected Sir,
    I have been reading the therapy you prescribe for Asthma. I am a 45 years old female. My breathing becomes difficult while walking fast or climbing stairs. During change of season, I catch cold and once a cough starts it does not go away easily. Right now I am coughing and my coughs are usually with a lot of phlegm. In my recent visit to doctor’s office I came to know that I have Asthma. I do not wheeze normally, but shortness of breath is always there. I take steam and try to control coughing by drinking warm water. I am seeking your guidance. Should I start following your therapy for Asthma (Nat Sulph 6c twice daily)?
    Thanks a lot for your help,
    Harita

    • Joe says:

      I shall copy my default therapy for Asthma below:

      Your remedy is a dose of Nat Sulph 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily, First dose on an empty stomach and the second just before bed which you will take nightly for 2 weeks, When you find some relief you can reduce your dosage to just ONE dose nightly. If however you do not experience any relief which can happen if you are a chronic Asthmatic, you will please report your status to me for further advice.

      You will report your response weekly or more often as may be necessary.

      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 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.

      Steam is also important and it must be inhaled for about 5 minutes twice daily. You can get the steaming device used in beauty saloons for facial treatment. You will most likely cough up a lot of phlegm immediately after steaming.

      Physiotherapy is also indicated after steaming to rid the lungs and airways of the phlegm which is also the cause of Asthma. You will lay flat across your bed with your chest slightly elevated above your head which is hanging down over the side. You will get someone to tap your chest on the back from the waist up to your neck and you should find that your phlegm will drool out in cupfuls.

      Exercise is essential for you and you will drink at least 3 liters of water daily.

      You can also blow into a balloon to help strengthen your lungs.

      If you get an acute attack of Asthma which you would normally treat with a Nebulizer you will take Ars Alb 200c in the Wet dose and this will usually bring relief within about 15 minutes or less. In the event of the first dose not working you may take another about an hour later. Please note that the maximum dosage is not to exceed 3 doses in 12 hours. Also note that Ars Alb is NOT for daily use and may only be used on a SOS basis if you discover that you cannot breathe as a result of an Asthmatic Attack.

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

        Hi Joe,

        I would like to begin the remedy for Baby Gerd that you have outlined above. A little background. My son was born 11/9/13 at 33 weeks gestation. his original due date was Dec 30. Due to his time in the nicu I was unable to produce enough milk and so he is now exclusively formula fed at 2months old. I have had a difficult time with the various formmulas due to him experiencing gas, conatipation and reflux as well as a facial rash.
        .I have finally settled on a new formula which is amino acid based and has no milk or soy.its called elecare. the problem is he still has the reflux..with milk suddenl spouting from his nose and his obvious signs of pain. Do you reccomend tge exaxt same remedy for him. I gave not given him any drugs for this problem and dont intend to. thanks.

          It is just that I tolerated being called Joe all these years but it dawned on me that many of my patients use a Pseudonym and this includes you and I am addressed by my given name which I decided to stop on my website.

          Your baby boy is bound to be a very difficult case to treat but I feel that it is my duty to do so by using my “Joepathy” which has yielded surprising results in the treatment of Baby GERD. I believe that I have treated 3 preemies including 2 sets of twins and you can check their cases on my website. Their mothers have not contacted me in the recent past and I presume that they are all OK and are growing to be healthy children.

            Thank you Dr. I will order today for him. Fortunately, aside from the reflux and the rash on his face he has no other ailments and did not require any extra assistance after birth…hes already more than doubled his weight. I do however have a question about the remedy . DO I dilute the Nat Phos 6x in his baby formula or regular milk? he has a milk allergy which is why I have him on special formula. Also can you reccomend anything for the rash on his face? it looks like baby acne and is exclusive to his face and forehead. Much thanks.

            • Joe says:

              You can dilute the tablet in any liquid you give him.

      • TaYYaB Elahi says:

        Dear Dr Delivera,

        Hoping this message finds you in the best of health. Firstly let me express my gratitude for the wonderful help this website has been as we started two days ago with nat phos drops and the info here posted us to the right use of tablets. My 6 month old son was finally diagnosed with cows milk allergy through trial and error and extensive online research by my better half and now he is no neocate. His initial symptoms were colic and an arching back which did not seem a serious concern until his weight gain almost completely stopped and then he even lost a bit when he was 2-3 months old. Finally when we were able to diagnose that he was suffering from silent reflux the Gastroentologist Paedetrician immediately prescribed him meprazole in the morning and antacids at night but eventually slight comfort came around for him when he was switched over to neocate and has shown a weight gain from 5.2 kgs to 6.8 over a period of two months or so. However, his discomfort has as yet not gone away and even though he seems slightly somewhat better with the use of nat phos our primary concern is 1. On some online forums there have been discussions quoting that nat phos had slowed down and in some cases stopped weight gain which obviously is serious concern since he is already underweight as per the ideal standards and 2. His hands and feet have been getting cold over the past two days… Is that normal? 3. We’ve had his endoscopy and barium X-ray done with nothing much to report besides inflammation which was due him throwing up a minor amount of blood after we put him on soft diet such as banana or a cereal that contained a minor amount of soy. Now we’ve started with Prep-up rice cereal which seems to be settling in well… What else would be a safer option to try as allergy tests for under 2 year olds as heard don’t really reveal much. What other medication would you prescribe along with Nat phos or otherwise? Most importantly when will his allergies go away?

        Many thanks for your valuable time. Awaiting your earliest convenient response.

        • TaYYaB Elahi says:

          P.S he was also suffering from constipation prior to being on neocate.
          Also he goes to sleep with great difficulty due to gastric disturbance and his endoscopy which was conducted 5 hours after his feed showed milk still in his stomach undigested.

        • Joe says:

          It is good to know that you have read my prescriptions for babies on my Website and used Nat Phos 6x even without consulting me and discovered that it did help your baby. You have however referred to Nat Phos drops and I would like to have more information on these drops which you will have on the label as this is not a standard pack.

          Please do NOT subject your precious baby to the unnecessary tests you described:
          “We’ve had his endoscopy and barium X-ray done with nothing much to report besides inflammation which was due him throwing up a minor amount of blood after we put him on soft diet such as banana or a cereal that contained a minor amount of soy. Now we’ve started with Prep-up rice cereal which seems to be settling in well…”

          I have always maintained that a baby is not ready for solids up to 8 months but I find that doctors prescribe the dangerous PPI Drugs like Zantac for reflux when they know that the FDA has stated that they cause serious problems which you can read by Googling “The danger of PPI drugs”.

          They refuse to use Nat Phos 6x which is the Ultimate remedy for babies and adults presenting GERD. Please follow my therapy outlined below:

    Dr Delivera
    I am writing about my 5 month old son he shows signs of reflux I.e. Spitting up breastmilk after feeds that looks and smells sour, arching back, screaming in pain and makes gurgling noises. He also has been suffering from constipation which caused us to take him to the ER after 4 weeks of bowel movements only after use of suppository. Intersucception was ruled out but an enema was required as he was full of stool despite use of suppository. We are waiting on a second ultrasound to confirm he does not have pyloric stenosis the first today showed his stomach and bowels were inflamed and that he was full of gas. Pediatrician prescribed lactolose twice daily to assist bowel movements. He also is very congested with a stuffy nose and wheezing chest. I have eliminate most dairy ie milk yogurt and cheese from my diet but not products containing dairy. Not sure what else I should exclude. Son has been horrible sleeper too fussing after attempted bedtime at 8 going to sleep and awakening in pain until he passes out from exhaustion and sleeps 4 to 8 am. I should also note he is gaining weight and otherwise healthy 18 lbs and 25 inches. Please help we are desperate to comfort him. Thanks in advance!

    • Joe says:

      The fact that your baby was OK for 5 months rules out Pyloric Stenosis.

      I believe that his problems were caused by the drugs that were prescribed for his constipation and the other aids to evacuate which have all contributed to his current ailment which you described:
      “We are waiting on a second ultrasound to confirm he does not have pyloric stenosis the first today showed his stomach and bowels were inflamed and that he was full of gas. “

      I note that he has been prescribed Lactulose by a paediatrician and you must know that this drug is not usually prescribed for Babies due to the side effects on adults which can be worse for babies. The other symptoms you noted — stuffy nose and wheezing chest can be one of them.

      I hope that my default therapy for Baby GERD will help him as Nat Phos 6x which is the remedy which I have prescribed for over 10 years for both adults and babies should hopefully help him. This remedy which incidentally is not generally prescribed by classical homeopaths works by accelerating the passage of food (milk) down the gut thereby eliminating the production of excess Hcl which usually results in reflux, vomiting the milk and has also been known in adults to be the cause of Asthma (wheezing chest).

      Nat Phos 6x will also eliminate constipation.

      Report progressin 24 hours after the first dose.

      Many mothers have confirmed that in just 24 hours their babies transformed into smiling angels. Do look up their comments on my Website.

      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 Joe,

    Greetings and a very Happy New Year !

    I have been an ardent follower of ‘Joepathy’ for quite some time now for the treatment of my younger son’s asthma and I have been updating to you time and again that his condition is much much better now.

    Well, this post is regarding my elder son who is 7 years old. Of late, since past 2-3 months I’ve observed a tendency of frequent urination/ urination sensation in him. It’s not that he always passes urine whenever he has the feeling. Even if he does, it’s only in few drops. The sensation is as frequent as about 3-4 times an hour. He doesn’t complain of any pain nor he is diabetic.

    Kindly suggest a suitable medication for him.

    Best regards…

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that your son’s Asthma is now under control and I presume that you do not use any Inhalers, all of which are based on Steroids.

      I would like to know if he still gets an attack and if so how often. Also what treatment do you give him when he gets an attack?

      Your 7 year old’s urination problem is most likely due to some infection in the bladder and you will have to consult a urologist who will most likely do a urine test and prescribe an antibiotic like Amoxyllin to treat the infection. I am surprised to learn that he has had the infection for 3 months as by this time patients who are infected usually pass some blood in their urine.

      Consult a doctor without delay and report his diagnosis.

      • Vikag says:

        Dear Joe,

        Many thanks for your inputs. As advised by you, I shall consult a doctor and report the diagnosis to you.

        Regarding my younger son’s asthma, I haven’t used inhalers for a while now, say about 3-4 months.

        He hasn’t got an attack for almost about 2 months now. Whenever he’s had a problem, I have treated him with the wet dose of Ars Alb200.

        His current dosage of medicines is – Eupat P 200 twice a week, Natsulph twice a day. Ars Alb200 for SOS requirements.

        Many thanks to you for all your guidance. Sincere regards…..

        • Joe says:

          I note that you have not reduced your son’s dosage of Nat Sulph 6c to ONE as prescribed by me many months ago. Please do so ASAP and give him the one dose just before bed.

          I prefer not to be addressed as “Joe” except by my peers and close friends, as in my country Sri Lanka, there is a certain modicum of respect reserved for age.

          I am 85 years old.

    Hello Joe,

    I have been reading your therapy for GERD. I currently ordered Nat Phos 6x, but was only able to find arnica 30 x is it ok to take this type of arnica instead of the 30C, should I take a higher dose. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    • Joe says:

      You stated that you have been reading my therapy for GERD but am copying my default therapy below which you will follow and which will hopefully help you:

      The remedies you will order are as follows:

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

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

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

      Please observe the following simple rules:

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

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

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

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

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

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

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

      • scoobydoo82 says:

        I understand your protocol Joe but is it ok to take The arnica 30x instead of the arnica 30c as I currently have the arnica 30x, would it be ok. Thank you for your guidance, I appreciate your knowledge on gerd.

        • Joe says:

          I hope you understand that Homeopathic remedies are very specific in their action at the various potencies marketed.

          You cannot replace the 30x potency with the 30c which I have prescribed.

          Arnica 30x will cause you more harm than good.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            Ok thank you Joe. I will wait until I get the arnica 30c. Should I wait to take the nat phosphate until I get the arnica or can I take that right away

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            Joe do you know a good online site where I can order the arnica. I can’t find it locally.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            I found the pellets would that be fine to use. Can I make the liquid from that

            • Joe says:

              Yes you may insert 6 pellets into the 500ml bottle of spring water to make the remedy. You must know however that the pellets are only 10% as effective as the Liquid dilution which is alcohol.

              I prefer not to be addressed as “Joe” except by my peers and close friends, as in my country Sri Lanka, there is a certain modicum of respect reserved for age.

              I am 85 years old.

              It is just that I tolerated being called Joe all these years but it dawned on me that many of my patients use a Pseudonym and this includes you and I am addressed by my given name which I decided to stop on my website.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            Thank you very much

        • scoobydoo82 says:

          Thank you very much, sir

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            Sir, I am afraid to stop taking the omeprazole that was prescribed to me because of getting acid rebound, can you please advise me. I just don’t want to experience the fierce burning I got about 3 months ago when I was first diagnosed with GERD. Should I slowly wean off or do you think I’ll be ok just stopping it?

            • Joe says:

              You are the patient and you are at liberty to do what you wish in treating yourself.

              I have prescribed for your GERD and if you refuse to use my therapy which has helped hundreds, perhaps unknown thousands of patients, I regret that I cannot waste any more time on you.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            I will stop the omeprazole. I Don’t want to waste your time. I have another question. I currently smoke cigarettes its hard to give up I have cut down will this affect recovery

            • Joe says:

              I note your addiction to smoking.

              You may like to learn that I have succeeded in helping people who were addicted to not only smoking but also to:

              Alcohol
              Drugs
              Chocolates
              Overeating and Bulimia
              Chewing Tobacco

              It is just that I refuse to give a case up that I am responding to you again although I first presumed that you were intent on some form of self destruction or slow suicide.

              I believe that you do not fall into this category and do wish to help yourself and survive.

              http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/71302/

              I shall note below my default therapy for Addiction to smoking:

              The Remedy you will use to help you to QUIT smoking is

              Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

              You will also exercise to sweat it out to help in the recovery process and you must drink at least 3 liters of water.

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

              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.

              Report results in a week.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            Thank you for responding, Sir. I have to wait until this Friday to get the nat phos 6x and the arnica 30c from my health store, but I placed an order. I appreciate all your help and time, I will report back to you a week from this coming Friday. Thank you.

        • scoobydoo82 says:

          Sir, I will be picking up my nat phos 6 x tablets today and the Arnica 30C pellets. I just have 2 questions, I currently take Calcium Citrate +D3 vitamin and also take melatonin to go to sleep, should I stop taking these 2 when I begin taking your remedy tomorrow? please advise, I will do what you say. Thank you

          • Joe says:

            I have already advised you to STOP ALL OTHER DRUGS when you start on my therapy.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            I started your therapy and have stopped all other drugs. I will report in one week

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            Sir, I am reporting on my second day of your remedy. I was quite nervous on going cold turkey off the omeprazole. I haven’t had a bad episode of heartburn, however I have had chest discomfort and a feeling of fullness. I also had a little constipation yesterday which resolved this morning. I believe in your remedy but it is nice to hear reassurance from you. I would love to hear you say that this indeed will cure me and I would like to know why you believe this. I will continue with the therapy you prescribed. Thank you

            • Joe says:

              Glad to learn that my “Joepathy” has helped another patient who was wedded to the dangerous PPI Drug Omeprazole. You are just one among hundreds, perhaps thousands of patients who were depending on this or equivalents of this drug merely to survive and I hope that you are aware that you contacted me in time before you had a Heart attack which usually occurs in about 10 years on this drug. This has actually happened to a patient and he has not recovered from a Heart Bypass surgery and is now confined to bed, 2 years after surgery, with frequent visits to the hospital where he was treated.
              This poisonous drug has affected his brain and he suffers from serious depression.

              How many tablets of Nat Phos 6x did you take?

              HOW MANY CIGARETTES DID YOU SMOKE YESTERDAY?
              This information is relevant in your case as each smoke will ensure that you continue your agony.

              Remember that the Arnica 6c will quell your urge for that next smoke. Read the accounts of my patients who have QUIT SMOKING after I treated them.

              “I also had a little constipation yesterday which resolved this morning. I believe in your remedy but it is nice to hear reassurance from you. I would love to hear you say that this indeed will cure me and I would like to know why you believe this. I will continue with the therapy you prescribed. Thank you”

              I hope that you are aware that the reason for your relief from CONSTIPATION is the Nat Phos 6x.

              You do still seem to doubt that my therapy can CURE your affliction which in my opinion, was directly caused by your SMOKING and to the dangerous PPI Drug you have been taking. For how long have you done so?

              Your CURE will take a few months but you MUST STOP SMOKING with the help of my therapy.

              How much of ALCOHOL do you consume?
              Do you drink DAILY?

              Pardon my questions which are made with the desire to CURE you and give you a new lease of LIFE.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            I take 3-4 tablets of nat phos6x 3 times daily depending on what I eat. I smoked about 12 cigarettes yesterday. Its not that I doubt your therapy I just ponder as to how it cures me, when every Dr that I’ve talked to seems to believe its not curable. Also I don’t drink alcohol

            • Joe says:

              Glad to learn that you are a teetotaller like me.
              You may not be aware that I am 85 years of age and do not know the taste of Hard Liquor.

              You will need to add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose to reinforce the action of the Nat Phos. 1 dose taken twice daily.

              Confirm that you are taking Arnica 6c in the Wd thrice daily.

              Leave half hour between remedies.

              The doctors you consulted are not aware of the MIRACLE of Homeopathy, more precisely the MIRACLE OF “JOEPATHY”.
              Please refer them to my website if you can.
              Request them to study the many accounts of CURES of Babies who also suffer from Baby GERD.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            I have been on ppi for 3 months. Also I think the heartburn was caused by my smoking but being addicted it is very hard to give up right away.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            I am taking the arnica 30c right now. I could order the arnica 6c and the nix comics but I probably won’t get it until a few days.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            I think that I can only get the nux vomica 30 c in pellets and the Arnica 6c in pellets only, since I live in the U.S.A. Ok I am just confirming with you what I am going to do:

            Take Nat phos 6x 3-4 immediately after eating 3 times a day.

            Take Nux Vomica 30c 2 times a day, 1 tsp

            Take Arnica 6C 3 times a day, 1 tsp, Leave half hour in between all my doses, take my last dose for bedtime.

            Also is it ok to continue taking the Arnica 30 C, right now until I get the Nux and Arnica 6C?

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            Sir can you please advise on how to make the wet dose of the nux vomica 30c and the arnica 6 c with pellets

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            Sir, I have experienced heart burn today since starting your remedy last saturday, today is pretty bad, I continue to take the Nat phos 6x 3-4 3 times a day and arnica 30c 2 times a day. I am really struggling today, I got heart burn and a feeling of fullness after eating dinner. I know you suggested taking the arnica 6c and nux vomica 30c, but I haven’t received my order yet. I believe that I can only get the pellets and I have yet to hear from you on how to make the wet dose on these 2 remedies or if I should just take the pellets. Please advise

            • Joe says:

              You will use 6 pellets Nux Vomica 30c and insert them into a 500ml bottle of spring water. You will take a dose before meals twice daily. You will continue with the Nat Phos 6x.

              Report results in 24 hours after you start on the Nux V.

          • scoobydoo82 says:

            How much of a dose do I take when I get the nux vomica?

  11. TOverpeck says:

    Ok have started on the nat phos 6x I also bought Arnica tablets they did not have a liquid form how shall I dissolve to make a wet dose? 1 dose taken by me and the baby so far will keep you posted.

    • Joe says:

      I do not have any record of having treated you although you have stated that you have got Nat Phos and Arnica which you have given baby and are also taking yourself.

      PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ARNICA IS NOT FOR BABY. It is only for YOU.

      You will only give him a tablet of Nat Phos 6x dissolved in milk or water after every feed.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.
      You will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

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

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

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.

      You will also take Arnica 30c which you will order in the Liquid Dilution as per instructions below. Please note that the Arnica is NOT for baby.
      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

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

      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.

      • TOverpeck says:

        Yes you responded to me yesterday I am the one with the 5 month old son with reflux and constipation suspected of having pyloric stenosis sorry for not replying to the original thread. The arnica I purchased us in tablets though not liquid how many do I dissolve in how much water? Also my son is teething so I purchased chamomila tablets how much should I administer?

  12. Theresa says:

    My son, Lou, is 28 months old and has had reflux with vomiting of his entire meal, since he was 2 months old. He also has a very rare disease called Trichothiodystrophy (TTD) which only 50-100 people have worldwide. A lot of the kids that have TTD, also have reflux and have had nissen fundopilocation surgery, but Lou has not. We have tried ranitidine, prevacid, protonix, and omeprazole which helped some but caused acidic stool and contain worrisome preservatives. Lou has a gastric feeding tube so I have been able to get him to keep growing, though he continues to vomit at least 3 times daily (not just spit up but the entire meal). He has been off all reflux meds for a week and I can tell that when he vomits it is acidic and bothers him. He tends to vomit soon after the feeding and then is re-fed, and does not generally vomit after that. He also has a cold right now, with a lot of mucous, which drains down his throat and exacerbates the vomiting. He sleeps okay but wakes up about twice during the night with a poopy diaper. His stool has always been loose and the reflux meds made it even looser. I am now willing to try anything to get his digestive tract working properly.
    I should also mention that with the TTD he has a compromised immune system-slightly. He has been healthy for almost a year now. He also has asthma and is on Flovent inhaler and Xopenex. Also, he is developmentally delayed, but is very social and outgoing.
    HIs stools have always been loose which is another concern I have, as it looks like these methods often cause looser stool. Maybe there is something I can add to help with that?
    I just found this website and forum, and it looks like the Nat Phos 6X is in Lou’s future. However, I am not sure about dosing.
    Thanks for all suggestions! Check out the website for my blog about Lou, but I haven’t updated in quite some time.

      I shall now copy below my therapy for Asthma to enable you to STOP the Inhalers which I am shocked to learn, that you are giving him today at just over 2 years of age.

      You can give him 1 dose twice daily for a week and reduce it to just one dose nightly. You will follow the other instructions for Asthma.

      YOU WILL KEEP ME ADVISED OF HIS PROGRESS EVERY OTHER DAY.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Asthma below:

      Your remedy is a dose of Nat Sulph 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily, First dose on an empty stomach and the second just before bed which you will take nightly for 2 weeks, When you find some relief you can reduce your dosage to just ONE dose nightly. If however you do not experience any relief which can happen if you are a chronic Asthmatic, you will please report your status to me for further advice.

      You will report your response weekly or more often as may be necessary.

      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 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.

      Steam is also important and it must be inhaled for about 5 minutes twice daily. You can get the steaming device used in beauty saloons for facial treatment. You will most likely cough up a lot of phlegm immediately after steaming.

      Physiotherapy is also indicated after steaming to rid the lungs and airways of the phlegm which is also the cause of Asthma. You will lay flat across your bed with your chest slightly elevated above your head which is hanging down over the side. You will get someone to tap your chest on the back from the waist up to your neck and you should find that your phlegm will drool out in cupfuls.

      PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ABOVE THERAPY FOR ASTHMA IS DESIGNED FOR ADULTS.
      YOU MAY HAVE TO MODIFY THE DOSAGE TO HALF FOR A BABY AS I HAVE NEVER TREATED AN ASTHMATIC BABY UP TO NOW.

    • Joe says:

      I have just read your website and do hope that my therapy can help Lou.

      I am confident that the Nat Phos 6x should help his Gastric problems but I am not as confident with the Asthma therapy to help him, although it will not cause any problems. It has certainly helped many scores of patients who presented this chronic disease and the majority of them have been helped and some cured.

      Lou’s case is very special and it is a pity that you did not discover me a year ago when I believe he may have had a better chance of recovering from his 2 ailments.

      I can well imagine the trauma that you the parents have undergone and I would appreciate if you will please keep me posted of his progress as often as you can.

      I would like to add that I am 85 years old and am not a professionally qualified Homeopath. This Science is a Hobby to me and I treat all who seek my assistance free of charge. I have amended it with my own inputs which you may like to read about on my website and on the www.

      Look up “Joepathy”

      I live in Sri Lanka. Where do you live in the US?

      • Theresa says:

        We live in Minnesota, just east of the twin cities. Thanks for the info. Also, what are your thoughts about Bioplasma?

        • Joe says:

          Have you read the link I provided of the girl with a G tube who seems to be getting back to normal under my therapy?

          It is possible that Lou may also be helped in his gastric problems but as I stated, the Eczema may be more difficult.

          It is best NOT to add every drug or in this case a Probiotic simply because someone suggested it especially now that you have decided to use my therapy aka “Joepathy” of which there is ample evidence of CURES of many desperate cases provided by the parents of the child or by the patients themselves.

          My advice is that you stay exclusively with my therapy for a few weeks without other drugs as you must know that Hojmeopathic remedies are at Nano levels and will not work if other drugs are used concurrently as they are easily anti-doted.

          Do keep me informed if and when you start him on my therapy.

  13. Jess says:

    Hi Joe,

    I am looking for advice please on the correct dosage of nat phos to treat my daughters gerd. I am confused still a little confused after reading much of the above and naturally cautious about possible OD. She is 11 weeks old and weighs over 10lb. She vomits continually all day due to a weak valve and is particularly distressed with GERD but not all day. Mainly in the evenings. I have nat phos 6x, soft tabs. Do I give 1 tab diluted after each feed for 24hrs, half a tab thereafter and then taper off on day 3 as suggested? Should I diluted the tab in a tsp of water? I am wondering as she is so young whether this dose is too high. Any advice would be great. Thank you for your time.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that you have read and understood my therapy correctly.

      Please be assured that Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug and can be used very safely even for your 3 month old baby. Suggest you also take 2 tablets after every meal as the NP will carry over to your baby in your milk which I am presuming you are feeding her.

      You can start with half tablet after every feed and if she stabilizes
      all is well. Otherwise you may safely increase it to a full tablet and observe her response and adjust the dosage accordingly.

      I prefer not to be addressed as “Joe” except by my peers and close friends, as in my country Sri Lanka, there is a certain modicum of respect reserved for age.

      I am 85 years old.

  14. Jess says:

    Also, is it safe to take Nat Phos while breastfeeding….stupidly I tried a tablet with the intention to begin taking it myself to cure my own GERD. Will I have caused my baby any harm taking on 6x tablet?

  15. Jess says:

    Thank you very much for your advice. I will start the first dose tomorrow
    I do apologise for referring to you by your first name. The reason for this is that all your replies come through as ‘Joe says….’
    I will keep you informed of our progress. Many thanks.

    • Joe says:

      My website is based on a WordPress Template and the authors have used the first names of the user to identify the person who makes the post. If you use a pseudonym, it will use it as your ID on my website.

      I have tolerated being addressed as Joe as this is indeed my given name and it is the name that is always used on the many Homeopathic Forums which I used to monitor daily for the last 12 years but it occurred to me that I did not have to accept being addressed as Joe on my own website as the least a patient could do is to show some respect to the consultant, especially when the advice is given free of charge.

      Please do not think that I am offended. It is just that I decided this year to put a stop to this anomaly.

  16. Jess says:

    Sorry but I keep thinking of questions for you. Am I mean’t to cut the tablet in half? It will have come into contact with surfaces, my hands etc. I was under the impression that this will interfere with the effectiveness of the treatment. Or do I dissolve a whole tablet in a tsp of water, give half tsp to baby and keep other half for later?
    Lastly, is there a limit to how many tablets I can give her in a 24hr period. She feeds 2-4 hourly. Thank you once again. I really appreciate your help and vast knowledge on this subject.

    • Joe says:

      You can give half to baby after every feed and if you see that she is comfortable you can continue but otherwise a full tablet is OK as the main idea is to ensure that she does not reflux her milk.

      I have limited the maximum dosage in 24 hours to 6 tablets.

      Keep me advised of her progress.

      I have observed that almost ALL mothers are desperate when they first consult me as their babies are not responding to the drugs but when baby stabilizes and the reflux is history, they do not care to report that baby is OK.

  17. Shweta says:

    This is Shweta mother of 7.5 month old girl suffering from acid reflux. One of my friend recommended you that you are able to treat infant reflux without harmful medicines with the help of homeopathy. My daughter Kanisha is on lenzol junior for past 2 months as she has acid reflux. She also has laryngomalacia (mild case).
    She vomits alot since she was 2-3 months old. Now she is formula fed. She used to vomit almost full feed after each feed, which was very heartbreaking as she has to put in lot of effort to drink coz of her laryngomalacia. Then GI specialist put her on lenzol. It worked for some time but then she started vomiting after almost every feed again so doctor upped her dose of lenzol. She gags and chokes alot even on her own saliva and then vomits. Now even the upped dose is not seems to be working. Please guide me as how can I help my daughter with her reflux. Now she doesn’t like to fed and we have to distract her with various toys and tricks to feed her. and Chances are she would suddenly gag on nothing then vomit out all the feed. I would appreciate your help.
    Thanks

    • Joe says:

      I discovered your post in the Trash where it had been consigned by the software used on my website which is based on a Word Press template. This is the first time this has happened in 4 years of my using it and I apologise that this occurred for some reason I cannot understand.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.
      You will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

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

      It is very likely that the problem diagnosed as Laryngomalacia was due to the acid which she seems to have been refluxing after every feed. I have had a few cases in the past one where the baby was having a permanent cough identified as Brohchitis which was due to the acid entering her lungs which was not diagnosed by the pediatrician who like in your case gave her the PPI drug which worked for a few days and when it did not he increased the dosage to the adult dose and at that point when all seemed to be lost, she discovered me and all was well in a few days.

      Please keep me advised of her progress.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone you can add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose given twice daily before a feed.

      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.

      If you cannot get the Liquid Dilution you may use 6 pellets of the Nux V till you get the other pack.

      Where do you live?

  18. Jess says:

    Thank you and I’ll be sure to keep you informed. If possible, could you answer my previous question about how to halve the tablet with out interfering with it’s properties?

  19. Shweta says:

    Thank you a lot sir for replying. I live in India. I’ve started giving Nat Phos 6x to my daughter immediately after feed. Right now I’m just observing her. I’ve also stopped giving her lanzol since I started Nat Phos 6x. I’ll sure keep you posted with the updates of Kanisha. I’m hoping that this will work for her and I’ll be able to keep her away from harmful medicines and she will not puke anymore.

    Will Nat Phos 6x also stop her from throwing up as she throws up alot?

    Is Nux Vomica 30c is different from Nux Vomica 30x? As here stores have Nux Vomica 30x but I have not yet purchased it. I thought of asking you first.

    I’ll also post this on your website but not sure if it will show up there so I thought of replying in the mail as well.

    Again thank you so much.

    • Joe says:

      I have prescribed Nat Phos 6x as it has helped the digestive system of many hundreds of babies to stabilize as many are born with stomachs which are not fully developed. You should observe that her vomiting will stop in under 24 hours.

      Nat Phos is a very safe remedy to be used instead of the dangerous PPI drugs like Nexium or Prevacid that any doctor will prescribe. These drugs have been accepted as dangerous for adults and their horrible effect on babies can only be imagined. You can read about babies who were in a very serious condition after months on these PPI drugs on my website.

      Nux Vomica is to be used only if Kanisha does not respond to Nat Phos 6x. It is not a remedy that I would recommend for a baby for daily use.

      Nux V 30c cannot be replaced by Nux V 30x which is far too potent for an adult and more so for babies.

      You live in India and you have only to contact another Homeopathic Pharmacy who will be able to supply the NV 30c if this is found to be necessary.

      PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NOT USE NUX VOMICA 30C TILL I INSTRUCT YOU TO DO SO.

    • Joe says:

      As far as I remember you have given Nat Phos to your baby for just 24 hours and if this is correct, it is still far too early to expect results.

      Let us wait another 24 hours before deciding on the Nux Vomica

  20. Jess says:

    Sir, It has been 24hrs since starting Nat Phos to treat my daughters GERD under your guidance. She has had 5 doses aprox 6 hourly for 24hrs. I haven’t noticed any changes yet. She has been vomiting a lot. Should I still begin the half tablet now? Please could you refer to my earlier question regarding how to halve the dose. Thanks again.

    • Joe says:

      Are you giving her just half tablet after every feed? If so, she will respond without vomiting when you give her a FULL tablet as prescribed. In any case you have only given her the Nat Phos for just 24 hours and it is still too early to show results.

      You will note that I have prescribed a FULL tablet after every feed but not to exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      Halving the dose is therefore not relevant.

  21. Deanna says:

    Hello Joe, I sought your help for my 18 mo reflux and followed your 3 day remedy with some success. I haven’t contacted you after since I was not sure if the lingering issues were reflux or another issue. Anyhow, the baby recently contracted a severe stomach virus that has her still refusing food after a week. To make matters worse, she’s experiencing reflux at a level at which I’ve never seen, probably as a result of her illness. She’s waking up screaming in terrible pain like I’ve never heard. One night I was sure she must have appendicitis or something since her cry was so intense. I could hear her refluxing and gave her charcoal. She vomited and her pain was relieved. We have never wanted her on medication but this is so extremely painful I’ll do anything to avoid this. We have a script for Zantec but I’m scared to give it. But also scared of her having such intense pain again. Please help! peace, Deanna

    • Deanna says:

      I’ve just read some comments on this page and see that you do not like to be addressed as “Joe” and wanted to apologize! This is common practice in the United States and I see that you are from Sri Lanka. Please forgive my ignorance and accept my sincere apology!!

    • Joe says:

      I see that you first consulted me on December 2 2013 and I prescribed my default therapy for Baby GERD which I presume has helped her up to now. I also note that you have not reported her response to my therapy but this is quite usual when the parents are anxious to consult anyone who can help to treat the immediate ailment but fail to keep the consultant advised of the progress of the baby after treatment even though it only takes a few minutes to do so on the website. 75% of my patients do not report any response and your case too falls into this category.

      You will appreciate that I cannot possibly diagnose and treat her current gastric event which you likened to appendicitis, which as you may not know, is only noticed in adults and not babies. In any case the worst is over and your baby has recovered.

      Her acute gastric pain was not due to GERD and was obviously due to some bug she ingested in her food as babies at her age do tend to put many things into their mouths. In any case Zantac, which you considered could not have helped. Nat Phos 6x would have helped to reduce her colic and if you have the tablets you should give her 2 tablets dissolved in water if she presents any future problems in her stomach.

      I prefer not to be addressed as “Joe” except by my peers and close friends, as in my country Sri Lanka, there is a certain modicum of respect reserved for age.

      I am 85 years old.

  22. Shweta says:

    Dear Dr. Joe,

    I’m diligently giving Kanisha Nat Phos 6x after every feed. She spit up twice today, the vomit was curdled and smelt acidic as now I’ve discontinued her PPI. In evening she was arching her back alot and cried and gagging alot while drinking milk. I shall wait for your instruction for Nux Vomica 30c but I’ve got it from a store.
    I also wanted to ask that now her stomach has started releasing acid again and she is puking curdled milk couldn’t it harm the esophageal lining( as warned by her GI while giving PPI)? Please suggest.

  23. Jess says:

    Thank you but it appears my messages are being missed somehow, hence the confusion. I will explain what I’ve done so far. I cannot give a full tablet after every feed as she feeds very frequently. Meaning we would easily use up the daily allowance of 6 tablets in just 12 hours. So instead, for 24hours I gave 6 full tablets, spread evenly throughout this time period but ensuring I gave it after a feed. Your advice, as I’ve understood, is to then halve the tablet after this 24 hour period. How do I do this? Do I literally cut the tablet in half? I thought this was not recommended in homeopathy as it interferes with the properties. Or do I mix one tablet in a half tsp of water, give half to her and discard the rest (as I understand dilution actually strengthens the dose)? Should I then, as it’s a smaller dose, give after each feed? But not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

    If I have understood your treatment correctly, then I am due to halve the dose today as it has been over 24hours. I have also noticed a dramatic worsening of her symptoms since yesterday…aprox 12 hours after I started the Nat Phos. She is vomiting much more and was quite distressed yesterday. Is this normal? On the plus side she is very sleepy!! Sorry for all my questions but I really want to get this right and follow your advice carefully. If I have misunderstood anything then I do apologise.

    • Joe says:

      Your baby’s case calls for Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose given twice daily before a feed. This remedy will reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x but you cannot give more than 2 doses in 24 hours.

      Answering your question about halving a tablet, you can cut it in half as this is OK for the X potency but it is a NOT for the pellets which in any case are too small to be halved.

  24. Shweta says:

    Dear Dr Joe,

    On her third day of Nat Phos 6x, Kanisha puked twice today. On one occasion milk suddenly came out from her mouth though she wasn’t distressed and on another occasion she was thoroughly distressed and gagged and puked till last drop of milk came out from her mouth and nose. She is very gaseous also and burping alot. Her sleep is not very sound either otherwise she is a good sleeper.
    She is also teething so I guess this could also be a reason of her reflux flare up.
    Please guide me from here. I really appreciate your time and patience.
    Thanks
    Shweta

    • Joe says:

      I believe that a few doses of Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose may help with her current tendency to puke her milk.

      Give her a dose immediately and report how she has responded tonight.

  25. Jess says:

    Thank you very much. I will buy some Nux Vom asap. I have noticed she is sleeping a lot and also very happy. Still being very sick but far less distressed. Perhaps the Nat Phos is helping her sleep better and therefore happier. I will continue full dosage and start Nux Vom when I can buy some. I may have to order online. Really appreciate your time.

  26. Shweta says:

    Dear Dr Joe,

    On fourth day today I gave 2 dose Nux V 30c to Kanisha along with Nat Phos. Today she threw up every time she had milk ,not the whole feed but still significant amount. milk she spits is partially curdled. She makes swallowing movements every now and then.She didn’t sleep very well in night.

    To add more about her, she is not a very good eater. At 7.5 month we can never give her more than 4 oz of milk. She never takes milk willingly so either we have to distract her by showing something of her interest to distract her or dream feed her.
    Waiting eagerly for your input and guidance.
    Thanks
    Shweta

    • Joe says:

      For the moment I would prefer that you stick to this protocol and report her progress in a few days.

      Do not lose hope as there are a few other remedies which I can prescribe to reduce the inflow of acid which I believe is the reason for her current distress.

      In the meanwhile please source

      Robinia Pleudacacia 6c preferably in the Liquid Dilution otherwise in the pallets.
      Please note that you will NOT use it till I say so.

  27. Jess says:

    I think I’ve bought the wrong form of Nux Vom. I bought pellets. Can I use these in the same way? Do they work differently if I just dissolve them in a tsp of water?

  28. Jess says:

    Sorry they are tablets not pellets and I just read in this forum that I can use them in the same way. Do I have to use spring water or is cooled boiled water ok?

    • Joe says:

      I have noticed by reading the many posts you have made on my website that you do not seem to read and UNDERSTAND my advice to you. You first contacted me on January 18 and you have made all of 10 messages in just 5 days. I have patiently replied them all but you must understand that I am doing so for the sake of your baby as all I can do from my end, I live in Sri Lanka, is to prescribe the remedy and expect you the mother to respond by following my instructions literally. You live in London and I do not see any problem in sourcing the remedies I have prescribed from the scores of Homeopathic pharmacies in your city.

      I have prescribed the Liquid Dilution of Nux Vomica 30c but you have got the Pellets and later stated that you got Tablets.

      You stated:
      “I think I’ve bought the wrong form of Nux Vom. I bought pellets. Can I use these in the same way? Do they work differently if I just dissolve them in a tsp of water?”

      You state again today:
      “Sorry they are tablets not pellets and I just read in this forum that I can use them in the same way. Do I have to use spring water or is cooled boiled water ok?”

      The problem I have at my end is to ensure that you do not give your baby the wrong dosage which can occur if you give the wrong product as Homeopathic remedies when used incorrectly can cause more damage than they cure.

      Here is a list of Pharmacies in London and suburbs and I shall expect you to get the Liquid Dilution from any one of them and use just 3 drops in 500ml spring water from which you will give baby a Teaspoonful twice daily.

      Just wanted to say THANK YOU again. It’s been over two weeks and my little one is doing amazing. If he seems to have a flare up I simply give him one dose at the end of a feed and it seems to regulate his system again. I owe you the world. Thank you so much for helping our family. Now on to sleep training since he learned to sleep in our arms all night.

    Dear Mr Joe De Livera,

    I am an avid powerlifter and over the past 6 months my sciatica nerve has been triggered thrice which causes inflammation in my glutes. The pain isn’t that bad, it just hurts each time i bend or stand up. All three times this happened I took arnica 30 and hypericum 200 using the wet dose method that you have outlined on your blog/website. Within a week I am pretty much recovered and back on my feet. However the recovery is never a 100% and I still feel a sharp pain in my lower back if I bend too much, when I do chin ups and sometimes even when I sneeze. This pain might be due to a L5-S1 herniated disc as it is a very common problem amongst power lifters. I haven’t gotten it checked yet as I thought it might go away if I continue taking arnica and hypericum. Anyways, it’s been almost two months now and I wanted to check if homeopathy can actually fully cure a herniated/slipped disc. If it can, please let me know because I have seen a lot of forum postings about people complaining about herniated disc problems. Even though they are prescribed medication, no patient has actually replied back with a ‘i am cured’ response.

    As for Sciatica, I read that you recommend colocynthis 200. I have placed the order for this medicine along with Gnaphalium 30 and rhus tox. My medicines should arrive by the end of this week and before I start taking anything, I wanted to check what dose of colocynthis would you recommend that I start off with?

    P.S I do a lot of hip mobility and stretching exercises now to prevent my sciatica from being triggered. So far they have helped me a lot however once in a while the nerve still gets triggered due to impact.

    P.P.S I take arnica 30 in the morning and before going to bed. It has made a very positive impact on me especially in recovering from gym injuries and it also fixed my insomnia. All thanks to you Mr. Joe! I love your work! Thank You! 🙂

    • Joe says:

      I am glad to learn that you have visited my Website and have been using my therapy for the last 6 months even without consulting me. You may like to know that this is the reason for my establishing my Website 4 years ago as I am 85 years of age and it was my intention to ensure that my therapy aka “Joepathy” is available in the future to all who may like to use Homeopathic remedies which I have used in a “This for That” manner which is not accepted in classical homeopathy where the consultant is bound by certain rules which specify that he treats the ”Symptoms presented by the patient with a Single remedy”. I did use this method but discovered that this was another fallacy and decided to use my own therapy which was classified as Joepathy by the coterie of classical homeopaths I encountered on the many Homeopathic Forums I used to visit on a daily basis till I established my own website.

      I am glad to have your confirmation that you have been taking Arnica 30c in the Wet dose and would like to know your response to this remedy and your observations on how it helped you to recover from the after effects of weight lifting. This information is of use in my research on Arnica and I would like to know if you have noticed some difference in your recovery after weight lifting which you would not experience otherwise.

      I am concerned to learn about what you feel is a Herniated Disc. You stated that you have suffered from this problem for the last 6 months but that you now feel that you have recovered from this suspected injury after taking Arnica 30 and Hypericum 200 in the manner prescribed by me.

      A Herniated Disc is a matter for serious concern and the fact that you seem so casual about it can indicate that your pain is due to some other cause which must be checked with an Xray and a Scan, preferably a CT Scan. When you know the worst, I shall be glad to help but in the meanwhile, you may continue to take the 2 remedies you have listed as they are very safe in use for extended periods.

      • oshaheen says:

        Hi Mr Joe!

        First of all to answer your question regarding recovery, arnica definitely makes a huge difference. I usually take about 2-3 days off after each session due to heavy lifting. Previously, during these 2-3 days my body used to be very sore and I felt fatigued all time. After taking Arnica, the fatigue has definitely gone away. One of the most important things needed for recovery is sleep which Arnica has definitely helped me with. The deep sleep I get after taking arnica makes me feel a lot refreshed during the day. Please note that I take arnica every few hours (usually 3 hours interval) to recover faster (I think the recovery is faster due to the better blood flow?)

        Please note that my injury has been on and off. Over the past 6 months I have experienced it thrice and by using arnica 30 and hypericum 200 I am usually 85-90% recovered within 3 days which allows me to go back to the gym.

        My recovery was never a 100% and I always felt some discomfort after sitting in one position for long hours or when lying down in bed in a certain angle. Usually after waking up, I felt discomfort in the lower back region and right hip (the sciatica region) so I did a few stretches. Please also note that my sciatica was not as serious as some other cases as I never felt the pain travel down my leg. My glutes and lower back region got inflamed so bending and standing up was really painful. Once in a while I would feel the tingling sensation in my legs. I have never gotten it checked since I firmly believed that this would go away if I kept taking Arnica 30 and Hypericum 200 in the wet dose.

        You may have noticed that I am using the sciatica injury in the past tense in the previous paragraph. This is because I have a major update for you. My medicines arrived yesterday and I decided to go ahead with Gnaphalium 30 instead of Colocynthis 200 since my sciatica was not that intense. After 4 hours of taking the medicine, the sciatica discomfort has totally vanished (I took 1 wet dose of arnica 30 as well right before going to bed). Initially I couldn’t believe it and had difficulty falling asleep (not sure if this was due to the medicine or excitement that the pain had gone). Eventually I slept and woke up without any discomfort. I didn’t even have to do any stretches this morning. It was definitely due to Gnaphalium because the day before yesterday I was still feeling discomfort when lying down in bed and when I woke up yesterday morning. I know this sounds unbelievable but you will have to take my word for it. I felt like I woke up with a new back today! Since this post I have taken the gnaphalium 30 wet dose twice along with arnica 30 and till now have felt no pain. I usually feel discomfort after driving and after sitting for long hours at work. I am almost ending my 8 hour work shift as I type and I have felt nothing till now. This is nothing short of a miracle to me :D. Thank you Mr Joe! I will update you regularly about my condition and will definitely let you know if the pain ever comes back.

        Lastly, I wanted to check, should I continue taking hypericum 200 along with arnica 30 and gnaphalium 30 or should I just stick to arnica 30 and gnaphalium 30 for now? Please let me know.

        Thanking you & Best Regards,
        Omair

          Thank you for sharing this unbelievable good news on how your Sciatica has ”totally vanished” in just 4 HOURS after your FIRST DOSE of Gnaphalium 30 in the Wet dose. You will continue to take it for the next week on a twice daily basis with the Arnica 30 which I hope you will take for life like me.
          You will stop the Gnaphalium but you will keep it for future use if and when necessary.
          You do not need Hypericum at all as this is only an analgesic for nerve pain.
          Do not use Colocynthis 200 as this is not the remedy for your problem.

          I believe that it is the joint effect of the Gnaphalium 30 and the Arnica 30 in the Wet dose that has helped you and it is essential that you take my advice and let your spine recover from the abuse you have subjected it to in the recent past.

          The fact that you are relieved of pain proves that the suspected hernia of your Disc is not as bad as you first imagined it to be as if it was indeed so, you would not have got off so lightly.

          You must however accept that you have had a very narrow shave and it is best that you do not exercise for at least 2 weeks to enable your body to recover.

          What is your normal weight lifting routine and what exercises do you do and how often?

          I would like to have some data on the weight you lifted when you first noticed this pain . Was it benched or lifted.

          Do you use any protein supplements in any form? If so how often and what are they?

          Where do you live?

          • oshaheen says:

            Hi Mr Joe,

            Thanks for the advice. I will continue to take the medication as directed by you. And as for arnica 30, I will definitely be taking that for life :).

            I agree with the rest period and will let my body recover as well.

            My weight lifting routine is purely for strength training purposes and is very minimal. I do power lifting exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench press and overhead presses. I give 2-3 days rest between each session for my body to recover. My exercise session lasts about an hour and only consists of 5-7 sets.

            I started strength training about 1 year ago and the injuries were due to my bad lifting form which I am now working on by cutting down the weights.

            The first time I had the sciatica problem was when I deadlifted 150 kgs. I recovered from the first injury pretty fast. 2nd injury took place when I squatted 120 kgs and the last one was when I sqautted 100 kgs. I am pretty sure that these were due to the lack of warm up and bad lifting form.

            I am very much against any artificial foods and keep my diet as natural as possible. I eat a lot of lean meat, eggs, some dairy products like yogurt and cottage cheese, potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice (mix between white and brown rice) and fruits (i eat a lot of fruits on a daily bases). My protein intake is around 100-150 grams a day which is NOT considered very high amongst power lifters. However, if I can’t manage to get my protein intake from meat, once in a while i take 100% pure and un-flavoured miceller casein supplement. I am not sure how ‘pure’ it is but that is something that I take as a last resort. This is once or twice in a week and I only bought this supplement a month back so it has been four weeks since I started. Prior to that, I was not taking any supplements at all.

            I live in Melbourne at the moment.

            Thanks for all the advice 🙂

    First of all, I do not live in London and do not know where you found that info from. London is 5 hours from where I live. I live in a small seaside town and it is very difficult to source remedies. I have been nothing but appreciative and thankful for your time and patience. I have, as you requested, kept you well informed of my daughters progress and taken your advice very seriously, hence asking questions to ensure I get the treatment exactly right. I was unsure whether the Nux Vom was taken in a bottle of spring water or if this applied to a different treatment for another baby. You did not state how to give the remedy.
    Yesterday I made a genuine mistake, as we all do from time to time, and thought I had bought pellets and not tablets. Someone else in the forum did the same at one point. You told them they could use them. So I presume I can too.

    The other, main reason for my many posts is because you were skirting around my questions and not answering them. I asked at least 3 times how to halve the nat phos before you responded. If you advising people on how to use your treatments and, are at times, not explaining adequately then naturally people will ask questions.
    Thank you once again for your time but I will be seeking the help of a qualified homeopath who is happy to guide me by answering my questions with out feeling that I am wasting their time.

    My six month old son was diagnosed with silent reflux at about two months. He was on Zantac then switched to prevacid, neither of which help much. I started him on nat phos 6x about 36 hours ago after each feed and he seems very unsettled. He also has an unexplained fever. He wakes up every 30 minutes to one hour at night. Please advise on how to proceed. I am nursing and he does about two ounces of solids per day.

    Thank you,
    Elaine

    • Joe says:

      “he does about two ounces of solids per day.”
      It is very likely that this is the reason for his current distress. It seems to me that your baby cannot digest solids right now and you are advised to stop them for a few weeks.

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

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.
      You will not however exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

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

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

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

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

      • elaine says:

        Mr. Joe,
        I apologize for not responding within 24 hours as I have three children and it is not always easy to get a response out quickly. Evan has now been on nat phos 6x for about 72 hours now. His fever has been gone for 36 hours. He pooped after every feeding for the last two days after only pooping a tiny bit for two days. He seems much more comfortable as far as that is concerned. He slept much better after being on the nat phos for 60 hours which gave me great hope but last night and all today he has not. He still requires four to six burps after every feed which cause him to spit up. He is extremely difficult to burp. He also has had hiccups five times I’m the last 16 hours. I purchased nux vomica I’m the tablet form when I purchased the nat phos in case I needed it. How do you recommend that I proceed? I have not eaten dairy, soy, eggs, or wheat in more than a month. I also avoid gas producing vegetables. He also has never been vaccinated. Thank you again for your help.

        • Joe says:

          Glad to note that his fever has left him.

          Continue with the Nat Phos 6x therapy and do not be unduly concerned if he does spit up occasionally.

          It would be better to have baby on the Nat P alone as the Nux Vomica is only to be used if it is essential.

    Hi Joe,
    I am writing to see if you may be able to help me with some issues I have been handling for a long time. I have spoken with doctors, naturopaths, and homeopaths, and no one has been able to help for the long term.
    I have polycystic ovarian syndrome, hashimotos disease, and possibly cushings disease (currently undergoing testing). My blood sugars are high and I am frequently exhausted. I have hirsutism and am unfortunately very overweight as a result of my diseases. I have dieted for months at a time with no result. I have not been able to get pregnant, after trying for almost 5 years.
    I really hope that you will be able to help me.

    Hello sir, my 6 weeks old son has ben diagnosed with laryngomalacia…he has some difficulty breathing, at times its laboured…also it appears as if he has a stuffy nose due to breathing soynds. He takes his feeds and is also gaining weight. It is quite distressing to see him having difficulty breathing. Is there any homeopathic remedy.pl advise

    • Joe says:

      I have treated a similar case of an infant who was supposed to suffer from laryngomalacia which doctors were unable to treat. On a hunch, I prescribed my default therapy for Baby GERD and this cleared up the condition in a few days. This condition seemed to originate from the reflux of stomach acid which was partially inhaled into the lungs which may have softened the cartilage in the larynx and created this condition.

      I cannot be certain that your baby will also improve but if my hunch is correct, this improvement should be noticed in a week.

      If this improvement does occur, I shall expect you to report baby’s response on my Website.

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

    Dear Dr Joe,

    I wanted to report Kanisha’s progress since I last reported about her 3 days back. Her sleeps have improved but her puking hasn’t. She still is throwing up alot every day and is very gaseous. Like today only she threw up twice after finishing her feeds and dose of Nat phos; she sat for a while then suddenly gagged and puked; also got very distressed after it happened. I’m still giving her Nat Phos 1 tablet 6 times day and Nux V in liquid dilution twice.

    Last time you mentioned Robinia Pleudacacia 6c, I’ll be able to arrange it in couple of days, if you feel it is required. But I’m sticking to the current protocol till you suggest otherwise. Certainly it is better to keep her on homeopathy and be hopeful rather than keep her on PPIs which weren’t helping and have side effects as well.
    You guidance is needed. Thank you for your time and patience.

    • Joe says:

      Your baby seems to be a difficult case and we can try to reduce her intake in quantity for a few days but you can feed her more often. You will then reduce the Nat Phos to half and observe results.

      Continue the Nux V twice daily.

      Robinia Pleudacacia 6c is the remedy to reduce the production of acid in the stomach which occurs if the digestive process is slow when more acid is produced. Do get a stock but do not use it for the moment.

      • Shweta says:

        Dear Sir,

        Kanisha never takes more than 4 oz of milk at a time and I also give her break for burp at every oz during the feed. So it takes 45 mins to 1hr to feed her. I don’t know how to cut down on already small feed size.
        I’ve no idea whats going in her immature tummy but I’ve faith and hope that homeopathy can fix it. No regrets for chucking PPI out as she is doing more or less same as she was with PPI minus the dangerous side effects.
        Your guidance and help is highly appreciated.
        Thanks

        • Joe says:

          Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose will help her by reinforcing the action of the Nat Phos but if you can manage with the Nat Phos 6x only, it will be better for baby.

          If you feel that she needs more help to digest her feed, you can get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets and use just 6 pellets in a bottle of water. Dose is a teaspoonful given twice daily.

      I cannot believe that a 5 month old baby has presented a UTI at this tender age.

      You have asked me to indicate a remedy to PREVENT a recurrence of a future infection but I regret that I cannot do so as I do not have any background data to work on to help him.

  40. Dipali says:

    Dear Mr.De Livera
    Would you recommend any medicine at this stage?

      It is not possible to prescribe on my Website for a case like your 5 month old baby boy who suffers from some infection of the Bladder, especially as I do not know the background data that caused it.

      I feel that even with this information it may not be possible to treat him as this type of infection is not normal in babies at his age.

      We can only hope and pray that the antibiotic which is being given IV will help to treat the bacteria that is the root cause of this infection.

      Nat Phos 6x is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is always marketed in round TABLETS which are about 5mmØ X 3mm H.
      You do not seem to have got the correct remedy as you stated:
      “the bottle says Nat Phos 6x and has small white pellets/granules “

      I can only prescribe the remedy Nat Phos 6x which has helped hundreds of babies to overcome their Baby GERD but it is up to you the mother of the patient to get the correct product.

      I do not think that the product you have got can help your baby as you must get the Biochemic Cell Salt.

    Hello Dr Joe,

    I was taking your advice for acid reflux of my 7.5 month old daughter Kanisha. I’m giving her Nat Phos 6x for around 10 days and as per your suggestion I started with Nux v 30c in wet doses on your suggestion. Last I communicated to you that reflux is still bothering her and she still pukes at least couple of time a day.
    But somehow my last couple of comments are not getting answered.
    Couple you please suggest a course of action now since Nat Phos and Nux V are not working as expected?

    Thanks for your guidance.

    • Joe says:

      You have to be thankful that your daughter pukes just twice daily. She is under a year old and it can take up to that time to be cured of Baby GERD. You state that she is under my therapy for the last 10 days and you have the alternative of going back to the dangerous PPI drugs you were giving her before you consulted me.

      The fact remains that my Nat Phos 6x + Nux Vomica 30c therapy has helped hundreds of babies throughout the world and all we can do is to hope that she will get over her current problem in a few more days.

      You have also the option of consulting another homeopath who may use the standard classical formula which usually does not heal.

      If you wish to be treated by me for Cellulitis you will please give me more data on:

      Have you consulted a physician and has it been positively diagnosed as Cellulitis?
      How long have you suffered from Cellulitis?
      What are your symptoms?
      Describe in detail what you feel like pain, swelling of limb and other details to enable me to advise you.
      What drugs were you prescribed?
      Are you M or F?
      Age?

      Cellulitis is a disease which you can read about on Google and cannot be cured permanently by drugs as the infection will recur from time to time.

      Homeopathy can CURE this disease by preventing its recurrence but it will take a few months to do so.

I am not too sure If there is any improvement or not but before one day of starting this remedy she puked once and had a silent reflux because she would usually dont puke much but was restless and would resist the feeding and unable to sleep or go to sleep for a short time and wake up. I usually noticed her swallowing the acid. After I started the remedy ,she did puked but it was curd. Other than that she took milk and slept well as well but still I am not totally sure because she usually felt well sometimes like a couple of days in a week. So kindly further assist me about the usage and dosage of medicines.
    She is nowadays on breast milk and she passes stool 2-3 times and the stools are loose but passes it out with difficulty i.e feels uneasy or restless before passing stool and sometimes needs some assistance like suppository to pass it.
    Thanks
    Sahibzada

    • Joe says:

      Have you got Nat Phos 6x in TABLETS as instructed?
      Did you give baby a whole tablet after a feed and has it helped her?

  48. eshaal says:

    Yes Sir I got it in tablets , I am not sure if it helped her or not but today she did not puke and is not so cranky. I talked about the whole symptoms before and after the remedy in my previous post.

    Thanks
    Sahibzada

  49. eshaal says:

    Hi Mr de Livera, Wanted to give you an update that she cried alot again and also refusing to feed and can’t go to sleep. she is restless.
    Thanks
    Sahibzada

    • Joe says:

      Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose can help to reinforce the action of Nat Phos.

      If you can get Nux Vomica 30c in the Alcohol pack this is best but if you cannot do so, you may give her the Wet dose made with pellets of which you will insert 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of water. You will give her a teaspoonful twice daily and report her response.

  50. eshaal says:

    Thanks Mr de Liveria, I have pellets, will start giving her now.
    Regards
    Sahibzada

  51. eshaal says:

    you mean that I will make a liquid dilution and give 1 teaspoon twice daily,that I understood,Thanks for the concern.I will update you after 24 hrs
    Regards
    Sahibzada

    • Joe says:

      Hope her GERD improves with the Nux V.

      If it does not I shall prescribe yet another remedy.
      Do not worry unduly about baby as although many respond in a few hours, there are a few that do not.

  52. eshaal says:

    Hello Mr de Liveria !! It has been 12 hrs now that I added Nux V and already given her 2 doses but dont see any obvious change,she is still very cranky and refuses to feed or feed very little ,sleep is alos not very sound. Please advise .
    Thanks
    Sahibzada

    • Joe says:

      Reduce the dosage of Nat Phos 6x you are giving baby by cutting the tablet in HALF.
      Some babies respond to half tablet when their condition was bad with a full tablet.

  53. eshaal says:

    Want to add that she became even more restless.

  54. Preethi Hulangamuwa says:

    Dear Mr.de Livera,
    I am writing this to let you know of my son’s progress. He was having chronic colds and coughs as well as being prone to asthma. I started the preparation you gave me for asthma exactly 10 days ago. At the beginning his condition worsened and I had to take him to be nebulised the following day. But I did not stop his treatment given by you. Today is the 10 the day of treatment and I am so happy to tell you that he has completely recovered.no runny nose and no wheezing. I am so grateful to you. May you be blessed for the service you do.
    Could you please let me know for how long I should continue with the treatment. I am starting on 1 dose per day from today. Thank you once again. Preethi Hulangamuwa.

    • Joe says:

      I am glad to learn that my therapy aka “Joepathy” has helped yet another patient, your son.

      Answering your question on how long he should take it, this is variable with each patient, but it usually takes about 2-3 months before he can stop the single dose of Nat Sulph 6c you are now giving him in the Wet dose. I prescribe this Wd to all my patients as I have ample evidence that it is the ultimate way to use a remedy which as you have already witnessed worked the miracle in helping your son in just a week, to stop his reliance on Inhalers and Nebulizers, merely to survive.

      You will have to meet me soon, perhaps tomorrow, as I will be at home due to our Independence Day holiday, when I can give you more information on managing his Asthma.

      I remember you mentioning that your husband too is an Asthmatic and if so, he too can use the same therapy.

  55. eshaal says:

    Dear Mr de Liveria ! it has been 24 hrs that I started giving her half tablet but still I am not too sure if she is responding or not.
    Can you pls elaborate a little on the healing process. I mean Is this a gradual process or abrupt recovery, The only thing I noticed is that she is irratable at night for 3 hrs or a little less,refuses to feed but sleeps for a long time during night,like 4 hrs approx.
    Pls advise further instructions

    Thanks
    Sahibzada

    • Joe says:

      You have not reported on her refluxing her milk.

      The restleness is secondary to her throwing up. If this is under control you will have to await developments. Every baby is different. Some babies who have been on PPI drugs respond with the first dose while others take longer. The Nux Vomica helps to reinforce the action of the NP.

      • eshaal says:

        yes Mr de Liveria, she never threw up a lot but had a silent reflux, she still has the silent reflux and still gets wet burps and throw curd but doesnt throw any fresh milk.
        Regards

        • Joe says:

          You are fortunate that your baby cannot be compared to some others I am currently treating.

          Although I instructed you to give her Nux Vomica, I do not think that she really needs it judging by your last statement. Give her more time to adjust and report progress in 24 hours.

  56. Shivesh Chandra says:

    Dear Sir,
    MySelf Shivesh Chandra and I am 32 Years Old. Before telling my You about myself, I would like to tell you about my Family History.

    Now I come to me. From last three to four years I am suffering from diabeties and I was not taking any medicine for that I tried a lot with diet controle to maintain BS level but all is Vain and now from last 6 month i have started using Homepathic Medicin but I am unable to controle this .Please advise if this can be controled.
    My Age is 32 Years
    Known to Diabetic from last 4 years
    Taking homeopathic Medicine from Last 6 months
    Just One week before My BS Fasting is 192 and PP is 315.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Joe says:

      The 3 cases you have outlined of yourself and your parents are of some interest to me as it will afford me the opportunity of verifying my research in using Arnica 3x in the Wet dose taken twice daily, to lower Blood Sugar levels in Diabetics.

      You may like to know that I have many Diabetics who have confirmed on my website that they had experienced a drop in their BS levels and I have one Diabetic who is now 43 years of age who presented a BS level of 535 and who refused to take Insulin and is now CURED of Diabetes. His cure
      took 2 years and he does not take any medication at all today. He is employed by a Doctor who is my cousin and we feel that my therapy has stimulated the Islets of Langerhann in his Pancreas gland to return to normal and he can be considered as CURED as he has not taken my remedy for the last year.

      I shall expect you to give me a reading of your 3 BS levels weekly or more often if possible which I shall have on record on my website for others who may be interested in my therapy aka “Joepathy” to use. You will continue with your dosage of Insulin and Metformin and when you discover that your BS level has dropped more than is usual, you will reduce the drugs you and your parents are using and ensure that your BS level is maintained around 100-120.

      I shall copy below my default therapy aka “Joepathy” which many Diabetics are using today to control their BS levels.

      The remedy I have prescribed is Arnica 3x in the Wet dose which is taken twice daily.

      Mag Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken thrice daily have also helped to reduce BS levels and you can add this to your daily dosage.

      Please note that you will most likely notice a dip in your BS level within 24 hours of starting my therapy and you will then have to reduce your dosage of either Metformin or of Insulin as it must be maintained around 110.

      Type I patients have confirmed that they discovered their BS levels were reduced by about 20% within a day of their starting on this therapy.

      Type II patients will also have to monitor their BS levels on a daily basis to ensure that their BS is stabilized at around 110 and they will reduce the dosage of the drugs that they are using daily to maintain this level. The Arnica 3x and the Mag Phos 6x are taken as prescribed.

      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.

      Cinnamon powder is also useful to reduce BS levels and a quarter teaspoonful can be taken brewed as a tea twice daily. Okra or Bandakka which grows in the tropics also helps to reduce BS levels. Okra is used by cutting up a tender pod and inserting it into a glass of water which is left overnight and the water is drunk on an empty stomach the morning after.
      Turmeric has also been discovered to help reduce BS levels and can be used in a similar manner to the Cinnamon.

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

      Exercise on a daily basis is essential to help in the cure of Diabetes and the patient must also cooperate by not eating sugar and starch as far as is possible.

    hi, Dr joe
    i was searching if i could start a new thread about my disease on this website.
    i am 38 years old male, and my rectum abscess had been operated two times( 2009 and reoccurred in 2011). i consulted a homeopath he suggested me to take Mimosa Pudica 6 CH and Myristica Sebifera 12 CH to take when the reoccurs. but a few days earlier due to constipation i am feeling some pain inside rectum and feel as if it is inflamed inside. today i also felt some moisture near my rectum.
    my height is 5’8″ and weight is 80 kg, i like cold weather and sweet. i do not have urge to go toilet every morning, usually i go after breakfast or lunch. Please suggest me the medicines at the earliest possible as it is paining, let me know you wish to have more details

    • Joe says:

      I shall copy the therapy I have pioneered and prescribed to patients who suffer from FISTULA, FISSURE AND ABSCESS of the Anus. The majority of those who have used my therapy aka “Joepathy” have confirmed that they have benefitted from this therapy and many have confirmed that they have been cured.

      I shall note the Remedies prescribed below:

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose a capful of the bottle taken thrice daily to increase the flow of blood in the body which in turn will help to rebuild the tissue.
      Silicea 6x Dose 2 tablets taken twice daily to expel the pus from the lesion.
      Nat Phos 6x Dose 2 tablets taken twice daily after meals to soften the stools.
      Ferr Phos 6x Dose 2 tablets taken twice daily to improve the quality of the blood to help heal the lesion.
      Antibiotic Ointment like Polyfax or equivalent which is used internally on the tip of a gloved finger inserted into the anus after every bowel movement to keep the bacterial count as low as possible in the lesion.

      Do not use toilet paper after a BM. Use a Hand Spray device instead available at Wal Mart which is a DIY fitting.
      No Alcohol, Red meat, Coffee and Sausages, Ham and Bacon as they are loaded with Saltpeter. No canned beverages like Coke. Do not eat hot (Chillie hot) food if you live in India.
      Drink at least 3 ltrs water daily and exercise moderately.

      STOP ALL DRUGS YOU ARE TAKING TODAY.

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml bottle in the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol.
      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.

      Report progress weekly or more often as necessary.

      • abdul saboor says:

        first of all thank you very much for such an early response,
        my wife aged 30 is also suffering from anal fissure and she is 3 months pregnant. can i give same medicine to her. is it safe to give silicea to her as she is pregnant. she may not be having pus but pain is there which aggravates after each motion. she is taking nat phos 6x and ratania 30
        moreover i would like to have a format or set of questions for describing the symptoms specifically for your better understanding as i would like to get your help on knee pain of my mother. she is suffering from this disease since long.

        • Joe says:

          I saw your post coming in just when I was about to shut down my computer around midnight and since I have my therapy on my SSD, I copied it for you.

          Your wife too can use the same therapy without the Silicea which is only relevant if there is any discharge of pus. It is very likely that her problem is due to some laceration of her anus due to a hard stool when constipated which formed a lesion and is now an Abscess. Nat Phos 6x will soften the stool and the internal massage with an antibiotic ointment will help to eliminate the bacteria that are present in the Abscess while the Arnica will help heal the lesion.

          I do not have any specific questionnaire but you can describe your mom’s problem which is most likely Osteo Arthritis which will depend on her age. Have you consulted a doctor to diagnose her condition?

  58. abdul saboor says:

    hi, thank u very much, you are really a gentle man and God will reward you for your good deeds of helping people to recover from chronic ailments.
    can i take ratania along with your prescription if i have piercing pain or you will suggest any other medicine.
    one symptom which i have forgotten to tell you about my wife is that she has Diarrhea and sometimes constipation in normal course. i am telling because it may be guiding symptom for you in selection of the remedy.
    mother’s case
    age 57, f, India
    current complain: Knee pain, this started after menopause approximately 10-12 years back. knee pain descending from knee to toe, more pain especially in Patella and inner side of the knees. pain is left shoulder to elbow.
    more symptoms: pain aggravated from cold, standing continously and bending of the knees, lifting weight and climbing stairs also increases the pain. have short breath when walking fast or climbing stairs.
    better: fells better by warmth or relaxing
    dont like: chilly in food and fatty food
    Liking: sweet, lemon, milk, cheese
    thirst is normal and tongue color is pink
    Medical History: has been operated for gall bladder, sciatica cured by homeopathy. pimples on legs and on head at age 14
    education: she is post graduate and is a actively participating in household jobs
    Test done: these test reports are 6 months old. uric acid slightly increased and so do the blood pressure. Bone density is also below normal rheumatoid arthritis is normal.
    pls feel free to ask if i have left anything.
    yes mom has consulted a few doctors but allopathic medicines cant not be taken for longer periods and she also consulted a homeopath few years back, it helped her but cannot continue. she also consulted some homepath in our city but that is of no use. let me know the remedies as soon as possible by analyzing the symptoms.

    • Joe says:

      “uric acid slightly increased and so do the blood pressure.”

      This can indicate that she suffers from GOUT which is similar to Arthritis but is due to excess Uric Acid.

      The treatment for Gout is Nat Phos 6x. Dose 3-4 tablets taken thrice daily immediately after meals. If she has loose stools she can reduce the NP to 2-3 tablets. When she is OK she can keep a daily dose of 2 tabs twice daily to prevent Gout.

      She can also take Argentum Metallicum 6c in the Wet dose twice daily. This is the treatment for Osteo Arthritis which she may be also suffering from.

      She will also add Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

      Your wife presenting both Diarrhoea and Constipation is unusual. Report her response to the treatment I prescribed for her Abscess which included Nat Phos 6x.

      “can i take ratania along with your prescription if i have piercing pain or you will suggest any other medicine. “

      Describe your piercing pain and where you experience it and how it was diagnosed for treatment with Ratania.
      Has Ratania helped with your pain?

      Where in India do you live?

  59. abdul saboor says:

    hi, sir thank u, i feel that a proper thankful note must mark the beginning of my every post.
    as for ratania i feel that pain in rectum continues after motion but the modality of pain has slightly changed now, basically i am willing to have something to relieve my pain, if your remedies are sufficient it is Ok then, i am also doing sitz bath which relieves the pain.
    sir, what if i could not get the spring water, can i make the wet dose with mineral water , as i live in a small town in U.P northern India.

    • Joe says:

      Suggest you use my therapy for your Abscess and report your response in 3 days.
      I believe that the pain you experience after a motion is due to the laceration of your lesion with every passing stool which also results in the reinfection of this same lesion which remains in situ even after 2 bouts of surgery.

      I hope that you realize that your contacting me yesterday is perhaps the beginning of a new life for you free of the horror of surgery in the future. Surgery for Fistula is NOT the CURE as it is only temporary as the surgeon leaves the raw wound open internally and does not know, or refuses to accept that it is essential that a wound is kept as sterile as is possible to enable it to heal. The Arnica I have prescribed will heal the lesion which needs some time to heal without the bacteria that keeps on infecting it and results in the pus formation for which I have prescribed Silicea 6x to enable it to drain.

      You can use tap water after boiling to release the Chlorine to make the Wet dose.

  60. abdul saboor says:

    sir, i am also interested in Homeopathy and i have read in materia medica regarding the symptom of my wife rather i can say peculiar symptom of diarrhea and constipation but i cannot recall the name of the remedy, i will let you know if i happen to see it again.
    thanks

    I have Hashimoto’s Thyroid.(Auto immune) for 2 years. Currently I am taking 50mcg of Synthyroid medicine. You are curing lot of people with your remedy. Do you have any remedy on Thyroid?
    Please help me on this?

    • Joe says:

      The remedy prescribed for Hypothyroidism is Thyrodinum 6c but I regret to inform you that I have not found it to be effective to cure a patient.

  62. abdul saboor says:

    hi, sir i have taken two doses by now, here are a few things that i would like to know.
    i am having slight body ache, in case it increase, can i take paracetamol to control the fever, which may occur due to the infection in rectum
    can i take the nat phos, silecia, ferrum phos and arnica with some time gap or can i take them all at a time after food.
    for mom i could not get Arg. Met. in 6c, i searched all the shops of my town it is available in 30. can i give in this potency.
    are we supposed to have time gap between edible things and the Homeopathic medicine?
    regards
    thanks a lot

    • Joe says:

      Paracetemol will antidote the Homeopathy.

      Your body ache is NOT DUE to the remedies I have prescribed. If it is due to some infection in your anus, you will have to take an Antibiotic like Amoxycillin 500mg which you will get on prescription.

      Have you had fever in the recent past which you can attribute to your Abscess?

      You cannot take the remedies in one shot. They must be taken about half hour apart. Best before meals.

      Arg. Met 30c is not as effective as 6c. If yo live in India almost every Homeopathic store should have the 6c.

    Dear Mr de Livera,

  64. abdul saboor says:

    hi, sir
    yes sir, it has happened a 3-4 times in the past years that i was having mild fever and intense body ache, which was undoubtedly because of the infection in the anus, after taking antibiotics i became ok.
    may i have the liberty to ask about my father
    70/male/ India
    problem Fistula: he feels pain inside rectum with sitting or standing up, history of fistula for which doctors have asked him to go for the operation. he was taking silecia 1m, flouric acid 1m and rhus tox 200. feel pain in anus in the morning, stool passes without difficulty unless it is hard.
    Knee pain: he has too much pain in the knees while sitting on the ground or standing up. in night his body side pains at which he sleeps and when he turns to other side it also pains.
    prostate: prostate enlarged to 43, tested a year before. doctors suggested operation but he used natural remedies prepared from saw palmetto, lyopenene and other natural ingredients. and also used Homepatic medicines like the combination of Dr. reckweg.
    he likes sweet and gall bladder operated
    test done: all the tests were done a year earlier, PSA normal, lipid profile normal, blood sugar normal, uric acid normal and RA normal, bone density normal.
    but sometimes blood pressure increases when worried on in tension, he has taken tablets for the same , he is a farmer and walks nearly 4-6 km a day
    he is pondering over as to which surgeon shall he opt for for fistula then i told him about you. then he asked at this old age is it possible to cure it from homeopathy, as some Homeopaths also suggested him to opt for the operation.
    i will be highly obliged if you give your valuable advice on this matter
    regards

    • abdul saboor says:

      waiting for your response

    • Joe says:

      I notice that you sent your first post at 3.33PM and sent a reminder at 6.25PM as I had not responded immediately due to my being engaged with my official duties as the CEO of my company.

      I have already prescribed for your Abscess and would like it clearly understood that you cannot expect me to respond to your post in a few hours. In your case I had already responded to your query about your fever which I diagnosed even without meeting you in person, to be due to your infection which you stated that you had also suffered in the past and was treated with an antibiotic.

      I am NOT a professional Homeopath as Homeopathy is only a Hobby to me which I practice completely free of charge purely for the satisfaction I get from curing the many ailments of patients who have first been treated by doctors and later by homeopaths, without any relief.

      I am 85 years of age and I have made some inroads into this Science which are unknown to classically trained homeopaths who do not accept my therapy which they classified as “Joepathy” as I use the same remedies they use with one intrinsic difference, where my rate of CURE is far above theirs.

      I established my website 4 years ago to serve as a permanent record of my therapy which can be referred to from anywhere in the world by all who wish to be cured by my Joepathy, for many years into the future.

      You cannot possibly expect the therapy I have already prescribed for you to CURE you overnight and you will have to use it for many months into the future.

    I am in my thirties…Can you suggest something for few wrinkles on my neck…and how to avoid wrikles also.
    Also I have few acne scars .is theere anything that I can apply.
    Thank you

    • Joe says:

      Wrinkles at age 30 are rare and can indicate some imbalance in your diet and perhaps a lack of exercise. It can also depend on whether you are M or F.

      You must understand that when presenting a case on a website like mine for advice you must in your own interest, give this basic data and also information on where you live and the temperature today. If you live in the currently frozen US. If so, your condition will soon pass with the advent of spring.

  67. K T says:

    I am so sorry for my ignorance.I am a female, 33, from India.
    Just searching the word “wrinkles” ..landed on this wonderful site.
    Can you pls suggest me some suggestions to avoid wrinkles.And yes ,it is true ,I don’t exercise these days.
    Can you suggest something for acne scars?
    Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily should help you to eliminate the Acne but the scars will take very long to disappear depending on how deep they are.

      It is essential that you exercise your body as you will otherwise be subjected to other medical problems which are far more serious than your wrinkles and acne.

      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.

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

  68. K T says:

    Thank you ,will definitely do…
    I have to take Arnica 30 c in a wet dose(in 500 ml of spring water).
    Is it means I have to drink 250 ml two times a day.?
    Or I have to make 500ml(wet dose) two times ?
    Will definitely start exercise.

  69. K T says:

    I m sorry,You have written already ,I have to sip capful of the bottle or a large teaspoon .It means this (500 ml) can used for many days.I thought I have to make it everyday.
    thanks.

    Respected Sir,

    I am reporting my condition after taking Nut Sulph 6c for two weeks for my Asthma. I am following the regime you have suggested me in regards to steam inhalation, water intake, food and exercise. I think it helped me little bit, but I still get tightness in my chest if I walk too fast or try to climb stairs quickly. Also, I didn’t get any phlegm out after steam inhalation and physiotherapy. As you suggested, from tomorrow I will start taking Nat Sulph 6c once at night. Please let me know if this is what you think I should be doing.

    Thanks a lot for helping me,

    Thank you very much Sir, I will start Ars Alb 200 c. from tomorrow. As I understand, I will take Ars. Alb 200 c once a day and Nat Sulph 6c once day.

    I live in US. I used to get shortness of breath for years, but last year during winter after a cold and cough attack, it started to happen more often. I was not able to get rid of cough and just after that i started to wheeze. To know what was going on I went to see a physician and got diagnosedwith asthma.

    I will report my response in 48hrs.

    hi
    I really appreciate your suggestion for my sleep apnea. I am using natphos and Arnica. Though it is only one week but I am feeling the less hunger. Will definitely update my situation. Now the problem is that for sleep apnea I was taking Kali mur and Ferrum phos and it was helping me now the querry is that can I take them along with Arnica and Natr Phos. Because after one week (since I started using your prescription) I stop using those medicines ) I am again restless during sleep
    I will really appreciate your reply and will pray for your health and life since you are giving me advise for free. God Bless you

    Dear Sir,

    I recently found your website after many searches for information on infant acid reflux.

    I was wondering if you could offer us any help? We have a 5 week old infant that recently (about 2 weeks ago) began having problems sleeping at night (she’s been a great sleeper since birth, waking 1-2x per night). Her nose sounds congested at night, and she has been spitting up very large amounts after each feeding, sometimes projectile. Our pediatrician said it was acid indigestion, and to elevate her at night. We’d rather solve the problem.

    I came across some other websites (and a suggestion from a friend who has been seeing a homeopath for the same issue) suggesting Nat Phos 6x, and so we purchased some Hyland’s brand yesterday. We have been dissolving 1 tablet in a couple of drops of water and giving it to her immediately before feeding via my finger in her mouth. I breastfeed exclusively. I’ve been giving it before feeding because she usually falls asleep during feedings. I also started the elimination diet yesterday, because I heard that 50% of acid reflux is really dairy intolerance.

    This has seemed to help greatly, and she slept pretty normally last night for the first time in about a week (although still congested sounding at one point). She’s also seemed to be more herself today, and I’m able to put her down again. After I found your website, I noticed you also recommend Nux Vomica to some of your patients.

    So, my question is, what would you recommend in our case? She’s nursing about 8-10x a day, and I have been giving her 1 whole tablet diluted in a few drops of water before each feeding, so she’s been getting about 8-10 tablets in a 24 hour period, beginning yesterday at around 8pm PST.

    Thanks so much for any help you can offer us, it is greatly appreciated!

    Sincerely,

    Elizabeth

    • Joe says:

      I note that you are already using my therapy and are giving baby 10 FULL tablets of Nat Phos 6x daily. This can be an overdose and you are advised to give half tablet before a feed dissolved in milk or water and report her response.

      You will NOT give her Nux Vomica as I prescribe it only if the Nat Phos does not help and this is rare.

      Please report baby’s response on my website and not by email.

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

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

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

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

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

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

  74. Elizabeth says:

    Thank you kindly. I will report back to you within the next 12-24 hours.

    i bought Nat Phos 6x from our slovak company
    http://humancare.sk/prestashop/en/home/18-nat-phos.html
    it says 180 tablets / 90grams, do you think it is the same as from Hylands…thanks a lot

  76. Elizabeth says:

    Dear Sir,

    I have a quick question – I started the elimination diet the day that we started the Nat Phos 6x. Should I stay with the diet, or can I begin to re-introduce foods back into my diet? It’s been 48 hours since beginning the diet.

    She slept great last night, and went back to her “original” sleeping schedule after beginning the 1/2 tablet Nat Phos as you recommended. She slept from 8:30 pm to 1 am, nursed and slept from 2 am to 5 am, nursed and slept until 8:30 am. Woke up happily and is in good spirits now. She is still spitting up large amounts, but is doing so happily. She did also still have nasal congestion at some times last night, mainly at the 1:00 am feeding, and some at the 5:00 am feeding.

    Just wanted to send that updated, and question regarding the elimination diet. I’m a vegetarian, so food is pretty limited right now. Thank you so much for your expertise! Elizabeth

    • Joe says:

      I note that you are a vegetarian and you now wish to deprive your body of the essential nutrients it needs by starting on an “elimination diet”.

      In the interest of your baby and of course yourself, you must NOT continue on doing so for obvious reasons.

      Glad to learn that she has responded so soon to my “Joepathy”.
      Suggest you reduce her milk intake per feed during the day to enable her digestive system which is not fully formed, to cope with lesser milk per feed. You may however increase the frequency of feedings.

  77. Elizabeth says:

    Dear Sir,

    I started the elimination diet because it was suggested by our pediatrician that her reflux may actually be due to a food allergy/intolerance that she was receiving from my breastmilk. I will discontinue the elimination diet this evening.

    If, however, she did have a food allergy/intolerance, would the Nat Phos 6x still help/cure the reflux and essentially cure the allergy?

    I will update you tomorrow. She was very content all day today, slept well, and was very alert when awake.

  78. Elizabeth says:

    Dear Sir,

    I discontinued the elimination diet last night. My baby went to bed around 8:30 pm, woke at 12:30 am to eat, then was up every 1-2 hours with gas, gurgly acid in her throat, and seemed very agitated. I gave her 1/2 a tablet of the NP after each waking and that did seem to settle her. But then she’d be up again within 1-2 hours. So, pretty much back to the agitated sleep she was having.

    Do you think this could be a food allergy that is causing the reflux? Should I try something else, or continue on this path?

    Thanks so much for any help you can provide.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that Baby is responding to my therapy. At her age it is not surprising that she will demand a feed every few hours and this is only for the first few months when she will sleep throughout the night like an adult.

      It is important that you carry her about and leave her in her cot and enable her to crawl about as this is essential for her growth which in turn will promote deep sleep.

      The reflux will stabilise as you have already seen in the last few days.
      Do not worry about a food allergy as there in none especially in your case as a vegetarian.

  79. Elizabeth says:

    Thank you so much. Last night was the first night that she did not have the nasal congestion. She is spitting up about 50% less, and much less at night.

    She does, however, appear to be gassy and her tummy is “gurgly”, which is causing her frequent night waking right now. I had my hand on her stomach and when I feel the bubbles, she’ll wake with discomfort. She slept soundly from about 9:30 to 12:30, then was up every few minutes until 5am with gas. However, it did not seem to be an acid reflux issue, so that’s good. And she usually has a bowel movement 6-8x a day, and she only had 2 yesterday. Could it be a side effect of the Nat Phos, and will discontinue on its own when the treatment is over?

    Shall I add anything additional to her treatment for the gas? Shall I continue the 1/2 tablet for the acid reflux?

    Thank you so much for your time and expertise!

  81. bibituana says:

    dear Sir I meaeured our tablets they are round, 1cm x 3mm…I hope I didn’t overdise her, as it is 90 grams and I gave her half which was 45 grams, but I found somewhere that Hylands is 10 g, so half is 5grams that I am supposed to start with 🙁 do you think I made a huge problem with starting with such a big dose ? I gave it to her twice only as sceaming intensed…but maybe that was because there was too much of ot..can I start again wih a lower dose ? or can overdosing at the beginning affect the treatment now ? thanks a million bibi

  82. bibituana says:

    so sorry 1 tablet is 0,5grams

    • Joe says:

      You will have to make up your mind as to the size and weight of a tablet of Nat Phos 6x. As you know, you have reported 3 different sizes for the same remedy and to say the least you have confused me with your many estimates of their size and weight.

      I have prescribe HALF TABLET of the standard tablet and it is up to you to use the product in the correct dose.

  83. Elizabeth says:

    Dear Sir,

    Today was much better, she did have her normal bowel movements and her sleep/naps were spot on with how they had been. She has been content again, and I’ve been able to put her down without her screaming. Crossing my fingers that tonight is a good night! If we could get her sleep back to what it was, along with the healing reflux, that would be amazing. Thank you so much for your advise and help. It is greatly appreciated!

    • Joe says:

      Glad to learn that your Baby’s digestive system is slowly stabilizing. You are fortunate that you were able to contact me as your paediatricians would have prescribed the standard PPI drugs without any thought of the damage that they will do to the patient.

      She is bound to improve by the day and you will continue to give her the Nat Phos 6x but in reducing doses to enable her digestive process to take over without any external assistance.

      Remember the advice I gave you about vaccinations which I recommend be only done after she is over 2 years of age.

  84. Alex says:

    Hi Joe!
    My son is almost 6 months old. He is milk and soy protein intolerant and was given Ranitidine for almost 4 months now (I know how bad this is) for silent reflux. Right now he looks like the medication doesn’t work already and he’s awake all night long and can’t nap. He is coughing constantly, arching his back and kicking his legs while nursing. He nurses all night long so to should I give him the tablet after every meal will be tricky. How many doses per day is maximum?
    Would you be so kind to tell me what dose of the Nat Phos 6x that should I give him and for how long am I supposed to. Also – should I stop the Ranitidine cold turkey or gradually?
    I forgot to mention that he has mild diarrhea constantly because of his condition with food intolerances.

    Appreciate your help!!!

    Good morning Sir,

    Another pretty good night! No nasal congestion from reflux, however after nursing during the night, she’d wake about 5 minutes after falling asleep to spit up, and then would want to nurse again. Sleep pattern pretty similar to what it was before reflux. Shall I begin tapering off the Nat Phos yet, or wait another few days until she improves further? So glad she’s not getting the spit up reflux into her nasal passages at night any longer! And that sleeping seems to be stabilizing again. Thank you so much for your continued assistance. Yes, we are VERY happy and appreciative to have found you and your methods! Thank you!

    • Joe says:

      I was confident that your Baby will outgrow her GERD symptoms. It took a few days to do so with my Joepathy, but her digestive system is now well on the road to a full recovery and you should reduce the dosage of Nat Phos to the minimum dosage to keep her happy.

      I have always maintained that NP6x is by far the safest remedy to help an infant to tide over the initial problems that many suffer during the first few months of their lives, and am surprised that doctors will only prescribe the dangerous PPI drugs to their baby patients which may help them temporarily but at considerable cost because of the serious side effects.

      Please spread the word that Baby GERD is best treated with Nat Phos 6x which is NOT a drug and will help both mother and baby while it is being used.

      Remember my advice about vaccinations and delay them as late as is possible. Also do not give solids for at least 10 months. Breast milk is the best.

      If you find that your own supply is fading, feel free to contact me for advice on increasing it.

  86. Elizabeth says:

    Thank you so much Sir! I will lower the dosage to 1/4 pill tonight and tomorrow, and then have her stop taking it the following day. Is that sufficient, or should I follow a different dosage decrease? I will definitely spread the word! Thanks again, I will inform you of progress as we wean from the dosage. Your help is so appreciated, and we are very grateful in our household to your kindness and generosity to help others with their ailments, free of charge. Your time is very valuable, we all know that, and we do not take it for granted. THANK YOU AGAIN!

    • Joe says:

      It is very satisfying for me to know that my Joepathy is appreciated by you and your family in the manner described by you. It justifies the time and effort I have made to share my discoveries on my own Website after having suffered from the harsh criticisms from classical homeopaths who, as you may perhaps be aware, have to follow the strict homeopathic rule to treat:
      “The SYMPTOMS of the ailment presented by the patient with a SINGLE remedy”.
      I too used this strange classical rule many years ago and stopped using it when it did not heal the patient. I developed my own therapy using standard Homeopathic remedies which healed, to the consternation of other Homeopaths who attacked me when they discovered that my Joepathy, which was the term they coined to describe my therapy, helped to CURE the ailments, when their own classical remedies did not.

      I continued to prescribe my therapy and there are many instances that it has CURED the ailment of the patient in some manner that even I do not understand. Read the account of Steven Lane under Articles on my Home page to see another case which surprised me with its CURE in just 31 days after this patient suffered untold agony in being forced to subject himself to 3 surgeries in some 8 years and surprised himself and me by announcing that he was CURED.

      I believe that you live in the US and am glad that you will share the good news that Babies can be treated successfully without the dangerous PPI drugs which prescribed by doctors with all mothers who are even now anxious about their babies.

  87. Elizabeth says:

    Good morning / Good evening to you Sir. We weaned her from the Nat Phos 6x last night, possibly too abruptly. The congestion from milk being regurgitated into her nose came back last night, and she was very snotty with only 2 hour sleeping periods. I cut down from 1/2 a tablet to a 1/4 tablet for 24 hours, then stopped yesterday evening. I’m thinking that was too abrupt, and we should have gone to a 1/4 tablet every other feeding for a day or two? I know you and I are on opposite sleeping schedules due to our locations. Shall I start her back on 1/2 tablet and then wean her again in a few days, much slower this time? Sorry about that, I hope I didn’t mess up the treatment. Thank you so much Sir in advance.

    • Joe says:

      Go back to the Nat Phos 6x routine again and do not waste time in seeking my permission to do so.

      Remember that NP is NOT A DRUG and you can use it very safely anytime for babies and adults.

  88. Elizabeth says:

    Dear Sir,

    I hope you are well. We’ve still been having problems with the nasal congestion after my baby’s first feeding at night. It’s now worsened to be full snot coming out of her nose upon her waking in the morning. We went back on the Nat Phos as suggested after the weaning from Nat Phos worsened symptoms, but the symptoms stayed with no improvement. We were on the Nat Phos for at least another week. Do you have any suggestions? I feel so badly for her, as she just suffers there silently without crying, but is grunting, snotty and waking every few minutes until morning. Thank you so much Sir. We did see improvement for several days while on the Nat Phos early in the treatment, so I feel something can hopefully be done.

    • Joe says:

      Why did you STOP the Nat Phos 6x when you saw that it was helping your baby?

      Her nasal problems are due to the acid reflux when the feed is refluxed up to her throat and if she does not vomit it out, it floods the nasal passage and this includes her Sinus and this is when it can cause permanent damage.

      Go back to the Nat Phos and give it after every feed. It is absolutely safe in use and is not a DRUG.

      I believe that I have already prescribed my Nat Phos 6x therapy but am copying it below just in case I have not done so.

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you for the very quick reply. I had been talking with you a couple of weeks ago, and I know that you work with so many people. I stopped the treatment due to your recommendation above. You had told me to wean her off of the Nat Phos by decreasing the dosage. I will start the treatment again and let you know if it does not work. Thank you.

  90. sam1234 says:

    Hi, my daughter 3month old has silent reflux(I think). She has milk aversion. Since 3weeks of age, she has been a fussy eater. I have tried changing formulas (lactose free and ha) but nothing has worked. Now I’m giving he regular formula. Her symptoms are:
    1. Fussy feeder. She has no become aversed to milk bit will drink water just fine. Earlier I would still manage to feed her with great difficulty onviously but now she simply rejects the bottle so I usually end up sleep feeding her.
    2. She cries a lot. Sometimes in between feeds and mostly prefers to be held upright. She does lie down flat and enjoys it but the minute I hold her in the feeding position she starts crying and archs her back raises her legs.
    3. Her sleeps are fine. She’s not uneasy except sometimes she curves forward in her sleep.
    4. She hiccups a lot usually after a big burp.
    5. She doesn’t spit up that often not does she vomit often. Sometimes it’s projectile. But her vomiting maybe once a week or so and sometime nothing.
    6.she seems to have difficulty swallowing and is mostly moaning when feeding.

    The doctor has given Zantac but I’m a bit hesitant in giving her that as I’ve read a lot of reviews where the medicine doesn’t really seem to work after the 5days or so. I read your website and seems like nat phos 6x is the way to go. I’m super exhausted because of her feeding problem. I have been trying to find the cause since 3weeks if her birth but have failed miserably. Only now I have realized that it’s silent reflux. I’ve already purchased nat phos 6x but it’s the German one(tablets ) not the hylands one. Can you please tell me the dosage and the side effects if any. Also once I start and if it works (hopefully) for how long should I continue?

    • Joe says:

      It is rarely that a mother refuses to use the PPI drug like Zantac prescribed by the pediatrician which as you have rightly stated does not work after a few days. Continued use of this drug has proved, according to medical reports, to cause severe side effects in adults including damage to the brain and heart but this after some years of use. If you wish to do some research do a Google search under “The danger of PPI drugs”.

      I believe that over 25% of babies in developed countries suffer from Baby GERD and doctors and even homeopaths do not accept my therapy using Nat Phos 6x which is NOT a drug and is a Biochemic Cell Salt which works in a wondrous manner to accelerate the passage of food down the gut and thereby prevents saturation of the stomach with HCl (Hydrochloric Acid) which is how food, in this case milk, is digested with the Enzymes in the Gastric Juice. It is when the milk is not digested in a short time that the stomach produce more acid and this leads to GERD.

      You stated:
      “She also seems to have nasal congestion (wheezing) when she sleeps and sometime I end up giving her a nasal spray (calpol).”

      I do not understand the reason why your doctor prescribed CALPOL which is PARACETAMOL and is used to reduce fever. If you meet your doctor in the near future, please inquire for the reason why this unnecessary drug was prescribed.

      This wheezing is due to the acid reflux inhaled into baby’s respiratory tract and can lead to Asthma and other serious problems which can have a long term effect in her future life.

      I presume that you have already read the reports of many mothers only website who have confirmed that their Babies were relieved of their GERD in a few hours after the first 2 doses of Nat Phos 6x. I note that you have got the German product which should be OK as long as it is the Biochemic Cell Salt. The Hylands product is in tablet form about 4mm ø and 3mm in thickness. This tablet dissolves in water or milk in under a minute.

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

    Greetings Sir,
    I am happy to find your website, and that you have assisted so many mothers and their babies with GERD and acid reflux. I have been searching for a Homeopathic practitioner here in Las Vegas, but there are not too many resources here for natural healing etc.
    I am searching for help with my son. He is 6.5 years old, 56 pounds, very slim, athletic and a relatively good eater. The last two months we found that my son has been throwing up in his mouth and then swallowing it. I thought he was just having bad breath due to foods, but then he told me he was doing this throw-up thing more than a dozen times a day!
    I had also noticed that during these two months he had become very thin, but I previously passed it off as him going through another growth spurt, he’s also very tall for his age.
    His diet has not changed, we don’t eat processed foods, and limited starchy food, and little to no refined sugar (if I can help it), and I am having a hard time finding suggestions for a young boy, not a baby or adult.
    His doctor of course, suggested the generic Zantac for him, and I just know it will not heal but mask the symptoms for a while. I have been giving him Hylands NP6x for a few days (four tablets under his tongue, after each meal-3 times a day) and it doesn’t seem to be helping much yet, he said he’s doing it a little less, but it still comes. I have noticed his attitude has changed for the better, no more moodiness. Could you suggest something else?
    He was breastfeed for over a year, and his vaccinations were also held off until he was about 1 1/2 since he was home with me all the time.
    We had constipation issues when he was about 2 years old which I remedied by giving him Goodbelly juice, (all those other yogurts and digestives, and plum puree never worked for him)
    Then as he grew he came to have a lot of asthma issues, usually brought on by a virus or cold, which I guess is rampant here in the dry desert. (and it’s horrible all the medicines he had to take) But he’s generally a really healthy boy, and no longer has any of those issues.
    Thank you in advance for taking your time to help my son. I look forward to hearing your suggestions. If there in any more information you need from me I will be more than happy to oblige.
    My Kindest Regards

      My first impression after reading your post is that your son suffers form GERD and would have prescribed my default therapy comprising
      Nat Phos 6x and
      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose.

      I note that you have already given him 4 tablets NP after every meal and this can constitute an overdose for a 6 year old. Reduce it down to just 2 tablets after every meal thrice daily and ADD the Arnica 30c which will help his Esophagus which I believe has been eroded by the acid reflux and may be the reason for his frequent throw ups.

      For the record I shall copy my default therapy for GERD that has helped hundreds of patients to overcome this disease for which doctors usually prescribe PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs which are dangerous and can cause many other more serious problem when used in the long term.

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

      The remedies you will order are as follows:

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

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

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

      Please observe the following simple rules:

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

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

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

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

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

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

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

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

        Thank you kindly for responding so quickly!
        I will be purchasing the Arnica tomorrow morning, and will adjust the amount of Nat Phos6x my son is taking. I will indeed follow up with to you let you know the results. I am very hopeful.

        • gidgetmataj says:

          Greetings again Sir,
          I am following up with you for my son’s GERD condition.
          Currently my son is still throwing up, although not as much as before, it is still occurring. I have not yet given up hope, I am thinking that perhaps the Arnica takes a bit longer to work?
          Are there any other suggestions that you may have? I have very much altered his diet due to his condition, so I am open to anything else I can do for him. I currently have him off all wheat and only very little starches, such as white rice, and even then only a bit. He is off all processed sugars and carbohydrates (sugars) besides fruits and veggies.
          Just out of curiosity, what is your take on the whole raw apple cider vinegar option? I know that it helps me when I get gas, however since his esophagus must be irritated already, I wasn’t sure if giving him a diluted amount would help?
          I look forward to hearing more from you.
          Thank you kindly again.

          • Joe says:

            Glad to learn that your son has responded to my therapy and I presume that you have reduced the dosage you were giving him of 4 tablets Nat Phos 6x after a meal to just 2 as recommended by me, as I felt that 4 tablets may constitute an overdose. Let us increase the number of tablets to 3 given immediately after each of 3 meals daily to observe if it helps.

            The Arnica 30c given twice daily is also essential to help heal the Esophagus which is usually badly eroded by the stomach acids and will take a few weeks to mend.

            You have not confirmed that you have given him a PROBIOTIC as prescribed and this too is essential to help him to recover.

            I do not recommend “whole raw apple cider vinegar”. All vinegars are dilute Acetic Acid (C2H4O2) and we do NOT want to add fuel to the fire.

          • gidgetmataj says:

            Hello Sir,
            thank you again for your swift reply.
            Yes, I did indeed follow your recommendation of adjusting the dosage to just 2 tablets of Nat Phos 6x. I will up to to just three going forward.
            After reading more about Arnica in another forum to contribute to, I was amazed about it’s abilities. I have also started taking it, since I am very active and often have sore muscles. I have slowly started to see a positive result, less soreness.
            I have also been giving my son a probiotic daily as you suggested. I am keeping positive that over more time his esophagus will become stronger and stronger. I have always believed the body has an amazing will to heal itself.
            Thank you for your explanation on the apple cider. I am glad I asked about it before experimenting.
            I will write you again after I up the dose of the Nat Phos 6x, to let you know how he is progressing.
            Again, thank you for your help. Knowing that you are so available to help others is such comfort to me, I wasn’t sure where else to turn for help. Bless you.

          • gidgetmataj says:

            Hello Again Sir,
            I wanted to update you further on my son’s progress. After these two months we are now seeing the positive response. He now rarely if ever regurgitates. We are keeping him on your prescription for now until we are sure he no longer has this issue. I think the breaking point was when I finally was able to order the liquid Arnica, we found a great quality one from a Hawaiian company. We are so happy and wanted to say thank you.

    Dear Mr. Livera,

    I am glad that I found this website. I am currently having a crying 14 weeks old baby due what I suspect of GERD or acid reflux. After reading your recommendations to other parents facing the same problem.

    So, I started taking nat phos 6x 2 tablets after a meal (3 times a day) 4 days ago because I have been giving her other homeopathic medicine (Colic calm and gas drop by hylands). I wanted to see whether the nat phos6x can affect her if it is given only from my breast milk.

    I also drank fennel and cumin tea at the same time. The night I breastfed her after taking the nat phos 6x and the tea, she was a happy baby. She was awake for an hour after feeding without being fussy and she was not fussy when she was sleepy.

    I gave her the gas drop before I fed her during midnight feed.

    However, the next morning, she was waking up screaming
    and I started to give my baby 1 tablet after feed yesterday. (I did not dissolve the tablet as you suggested as I was thinking I could treat it as the same tablet that I use from the other homeopathy medicine, right under her tongue.)

    After an hour and half (crying on and off) she was finally asleep.

    I took her to see my chiropractor today and after she was adjusted, she slept for 3 hours straight. But then, she was awake for another 3 hours after and I could tell that she was sleepy, but she woke up again after i fed her. And she was crying when I tried to feed her although I know she was hungry.

    My questions would be:
    1. Is it safe to give her the nat phos 6x with the other homeopathic medicine that I have been giving her?
    2. Is it okay to drink the babies magic tea (cumin and fennel seed tea) with the nat phos 6x?

    I will give the tablet dissolved in milk in my next feed as I have been giving her undissolved tablets (could the undissolved tablet cause a problem?)

    Thanks again!

    • Joe says:

      You have to make up your mind whether or not you wish your baby to be treated by me. You are giving her multiple remedies together with my therapy and when you do decide to only use my therapy so, you can then contact me again for advice.

      Do not let a chiropractor treat your baby as her bones are very delicate and he may use excessing force which can damage your baby for life.
      No “adjustments” are necessary as baby will be better off without them.

      • Dyah says:

        Dear Mr. De Livera,

        Thank you for your prompt reply.
        I have started to been giving my baby nat phos 6x 1 tablet after feeding as you prescribed to others ( and have been dropping all other medication).
        However, she has been feeding more than 6 times a day, because there were times that she was fussy and ate only for 2-3 minutes. I started to give her half tablet after feeding. If I can tell that she would be eating more than 5 minutes, I would try to give half tablet before and after feeding.

        I noticed that she did not wake up crying in the early morning like before I gave her the nat phos. But I noticed that she won’t eat unless she is on the edge of sleeping. She would cry if I tried to feed her any other time.

        I can tell that nat phos has helped her burp and fart more easily (she burped right away after I gave her the nat phos after feeding). However, there were times that she was really having problem passing gas despite the nat phos (before and after feeding), because she has been cringing face and kicking all over the place. In the past, my attempt to give her the gas drop with chamomile was succesfull. But I have not been giving her that to start exclusively the nat phos (both for me and her).

        I had bought the nux vomica as you suggested, but it won’t arrived until next week. What would you recommend me to do until then to relieve her pain if she would not able to pass gas? And would nat phos help her with her bowel movement? In the past, she would go for more than 8 days until she poop.

        I also had bought Arnica Montana ( I saw your prescription for others). Would it be something that I could take for my baby’s condition too in this case? (I have not yet started taking it).

        Thanks again for your help!

    Hi

    This is mary again
    my phone got broke
    I gave my baby Who is 5 months and one week old nat phos 6x for 7 days already then stops bcuz on the bottle its written don’t use more than 7 days can I continue to use
    She still has gas problem or some burps comes after giving such hard time to my baby
    Is nux vomica same as nux vomica 3c
    Which one I should order for my baby
    I really don’t know y she only take her bottle while asleep or falling asleep
    Now she has hand foot and mouth disease
    What should I give her for that her mouth hurt so bad
    Bcuz of that she is not able to drink more than 2 oz after 4 1/2 hours
    I hope u will give me a good advise what to do

    • Joe says:

      You must make up your mind about following a prescription. If you wish to follow the instructions about taking Nat Phos 6x for 7 days only you can do so but please leave me out.

      You must NOT use Nux Vomica 3c as it is dangerous to give a baby this low potency. I prescribe it in the 30c potency to be used in the Wet dose, only if the baby patient does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone.

      I have not come across a baby suffering from Hand Foot and Mouth disease. You will have to consult a paediatrician for a diagnosis and a prescription.

  97. Mary says:

    Hi
    sorry it was a typing mistake I wanted to ask u about nux vomica 30c not 3c
    She did response well but only for 3 to 4 days
    Days 6 7 she was ok not fine
    So that’s the reason I wanted to add nux vomica
    She has Gerd
    And severe gas problem that GERD causing it and sometimes she gags too
    Now she takes only 2 oz every 5 to 6 hours and in 24 hrs only 14oz hardly
    And because of the reflux she is not taking solid
    What would you suggest do u think I should strart solid
    She is 5 months and one week old
    Should I continue nat phos 6x
    For how long can I give it to her will that medication reduce her weight
    Plz answer my this question

    • Joe says:

      I can see that you refuse to read my prescription for Baby GERD and prefer to be guided by the instructions on the bottle of Nat Phos 6x.

      You are also careless in your statements about Nux Vomica 30c which you listed at 6c.

      You are wasting my time unnecessarily by doing so and if you desire that I continue to treat baby you must read and STUDY my prescription for Baby GERD.

      This included feeding baby solids which I have advised should only be given when baby is much older at 10 months.

      Do not bug me again with your questions in future which irritate me as I am doing a service to suffering humanity at my advanced age of 86 and quite frankly I do not think that you deserve the time I am wasting on you which I am doing because of your baby.

  98. Mary says:

    Hi mr delivera I’m really very sorry that my questions irritate u
    To me I asked few simple questions and hoped that u will answer in simple way as well like

    Dear sir,
    I have a 3 month old son who has had silent reflux since birth. I started him on Nat Phos 6x today and have two questions:
    1) He normally has no issues napping or sleeping, but today he is extremely fussy going down and only naps for 30 minutes. He is also moaning and whimpering as he goes to sleep. Could this be caused by Nat Phos 6x? I am giving him 1/2 tablet before he eats and 1/2 tablet after a feeding, diluted in breast milk
    2) You say only 6 tablets per day but is there a time limit between doses? Since my son was only napping 30 minutes, he was eating once every 1.5 hours or so. Should I be giving him Nat Phos 6x every feeding if they are so close together?
    Thank you in advance for your help!

    • Joe says:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      You may increase the number of tablets to 8 if you must feed often
