Treatment of Gastritis or GERD.

By Joe January 26th, 2019, under Uncategorized

I was a sufferer from the disease commonly referred to as Gastritis or GERD, which over 75 % of humanity suffers from at sometime of their lives, which in my humble opinion is the cause of other  major diseases to which the human body is subjected to in later life if left untreated including Cancer, as it causes agonizing pain, even when one’s stomach is empty.

When I first consulted a Gastro Enterologist here in Colombo where I have lived for the past 89 years, around 1950, he prescribed the standard drug commonly used at that time, Gelusil based on Aluminium Hydroxide, which neutralizes the Hcl Acid in the stomach. Over a period of 6 months he could not understand the reason why I did not respond as his other patients did, and were cured. He then doubled the dose from 2 tablets to 4 after a meal, but this did not make the slightest difference. He then performed an Endoscopy and discovered the Hyper Acidic state of my stomach and decided that it was the bacteria Helicobacter Pylori that was the cause of my almost daily agony before a meal, especially lunch, which I used to take long after mid-day. I was prescribed some powerful antibiotic which caused even further discomfort but did nothing to alleviate the cause of this indescribable pain.

I was around 30 years in age at that time and was the CEO in my late Father’s business organization which I later inherited and to which I do still drive daily at my advanced age of 89 years, and which I now share with my youngest son today. I discovered that it was the mental strain I was subjected to at that time and my late lunch that was the root cause of this daily agony from  which I often used to double up with acute pain. It was unfortunate that other physicians whom I consulted here in Ceylon as Sri Lanka was known at that time and others whom I consulted overseas were not able to cure this chronic GERD I suffered from, till it dawned on me that I suffered from the lack of food at a critical time just before lunch,  which was released by my stomach in time to digest the food that I should be having at that time. It was the lack of this food that gave my stomach no alternative but to digest itself and it was the powerful Hydrochloric Acid and Enzymes which comprise Gastric Juice, that I had to cover with food to prevent it from doing so.

It was very strange that the discovery of this simple solution was left to me, the patient after having suffered from this agony for over 5 years, to discover that I had to  eat something to prevent the stomach acid from destroying the Villa,  which lines the inner stomach wall. 

It is interesting to record that I have just discovered that even today, the  Google I consulted to get the spelling of Villa correct, does not list Food  among the “Eight best remedies to heal the stomach lining” under Gastritis! It seems to me that students in Medschool are not taught this simple Home-truth that it is indeed the lack of food at this critical time, that is the root cause of Gastritis! They will treat this so called “disease” with drugs and more drugs, including the dangerous PPI drugs like Nexium, but they are not aware that it is the lack of food at this critical time that is the primary reason for what is known as the “GERD Syndrome” which affects the majority of Humanity today.

The simple CURE is to eat a Biscuit or a piece of Bread to neutralize and prevent the Hcl from destroying the Villa when this Gastric Juice is released in your stomach, some minutes before a meal, usually lunch.

I shall for the record, share my default therapy for GERD which I formulated over 25 years ago and which I copy today for patients who consult me on my Website for this disease.

THERAPY Gastritis or “GERD”

It is very likely that you suffer from Hyperacidity or Gastritis, aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease) and I shall copy my default therapy that has helped hundreds of patients to overcome this disease for which doctors usually prescribe PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs which are dangerous and can cause many other more serious problem when used in the long term.
You will hopefully discover that my therapy aka “Joepathy” (Google) will help you within 24 hours after you have taken your first dose after a meal.
The remedies you will order are as follows:
Nat Phos 6x dose 2-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 3 meals.This remedy accelerates the passage of food down the gut and prevents the formation of acid which would otherwise reflux causing GERD.
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.This remedy works to repair the damaged Esophagus which has metastasised to resemble the gut to deal with the Hcl refluxed into it causing severe distress. Arnica works with the Nat Phos to speedily cure the problem.
You can also take a Probiotic daily for a week. A Probiotic will help by changing the balance of the Bacteria in the Stomach 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 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 (Villa)  in the wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana between meals to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall which results in a stomach ache which in some cases can be acute.
You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily. It is important to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.
The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:
Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.
It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which s/he may be taking for this ailment.Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

A desperate mother’s story of how her baby son’s Asthma was cured

By Joe January 15th, 2019, under Uncategorized

This is an account of a baby’s battle with Asthma which the mother noticed occurred immediately after he was vaccinated. It is an interesting read and proves that vaccinating an innocent baby has its repercussions.
It is a great pleasure to report my son’s healing from asthma. He was born full term in the hospital as a healthy baby. He was not circumcised but got his shots in the hospital. We have no history of asthma or food allergies in the family and live in a mold free environment. We tried to space out his shots so he did not get more than two at a time but still after his two months shots he had a high fever and ended up in the hospital. There was no explanation and was let home shortly after he got some medication. A few months later he had a bad a cold that made him wheezing. He was put on a nabulizer at the doctors office right away and was prescribed oral steroids for five days. We were told to give him steroids in the nabulizer at home. During the summer he did not get heavy wheezing but still caught colds and viruses frequently with fevers on and off and little wheezing. We used the the ventolin every time he was wheezing every three-four hours . Then fall came and our then 9 months old baby started to get sick even more often. We ended up in the pediatricians office and prescribed the five day steroids again. He was vaccinated at 12 months for the last time and he got really sick. A few weeks later had a fever and wheezing and steroids were prescribed again. Finally we were referred to a pulmonologist. He was trying to make us give the baby flu shots and was really making us feel guilty and bad parents. We knew somehow that something was not right. He did a full chest x ray and everything showed normal still prescribed the preventive medicine. We were supposed to give him budesonide twice daily in a nabulizer and the ventolin as an extra when he got sick. We started him on the preventive Steroid but right away he became a different baby. Our active, playful and happy baby became a sad and lifeless person. He was laying down on the floor with his pacifier and blanket all day. His nose was running constantly without being sick. It was at bedtime when I heard him with a shortness of breath and scared me. I called the doctor and they told me it was all normal side effects of the medication. After three days my family decided we should not give him the steroids anymore. That is when I reached out to dr De Livera. He has helped us before with our daughters reflux four years ago. But somehow we all forgot about the healing power of homeopathy and his wonderful gift Joepathy. He answered right away and told us to start him with natsulph 6c in wet dose right away twice a day. We started him in February with the prescribed dose and instantly got our baby back. He was back to his normal self eating and playing happily. He was not coming down with a virus every week but seemed to be more stronger against the viruses. It was a month later when he got sick with a cough and runny nose and came down with wheezing right away. Dr De Livera advised us to give him Gelsemium 200c in wet dose twice a day to shorten the cold. And Arsenicum Album 200c pellet in mabulizer. We were also supposed to do physiotherapy and steam therapy. However, I made a mistake not trusting homeopathy and took him in to the emergency room. He was given oral steroids again and another course for home. His wheezing did not stop. Three days later he was still wheezing and prescribed something else but we never gave him. I had to learn my lesson and really put my faith in homeopathy. I gave him the ars alb in nabulizer and it stopped wheezing right away. I was
Doing the steam therapy as he told us and he got the usual natsulph and gelsemium. He was already better in two days. I never went back to the doctor for any checkups. Since March he has been on the natsulph 6c twice daily and has not caught any bigger virus. Two weeks ago my daughter brought home a virus from school. It was deep coughing, runny nose and for my son it started off wheezing as well. I followed the routine of gelsemium and ars alb as needed with steam therapy and I also gave him any tart 30 c orally to help loosen the mucus and to prevent the build up in his lungs. He was out of this virus sooner than my 4 year old daughter who barely gets sick. I never went to do the doctor or the emergency room. He just seemed to shake it off so easily.
It has been four months since we started Joepathy and my 18 month old boy is stronger day by day. I have gained confidence in homeopathy and have made major changes in our everyday lives. I am cooking all the time because this healthy boy has a big appetite and eats like at least 40 different vegetables and fruits a week in soups and other healthy meals. We stopped vaccinating our children and we started to look into homeopathy for every aspect of our lives. Our son is still on the natsulph 6c once a day before bedtime and will continue to keep him on it until Dr De Livera advices us not to give him anymore.
I am just thankful and feel so blessed that Dr De Livera came into our lives. He really has a gift from above and thanks to his Joepathy we have a healthy And happy boy who can eat and do anything without the harmful effects of steroids. Thank you for sharing your gift with us and may God bless you always. We are forever grateful.

50 year old patient suffers from a Stroke and is discharged in 3 days

By Joe October 24th, 2018, under Uncategorized

This is an amazing record of a 50 year old patient who suffered from a Stroke who was almost cured in 3 days.

Dear Dr. Joe De Livera,

From time to time, I have read your posts on the ABC Homeopathy Forum and have been fascinated by your approach. Today, I approach you for help with my wife’s condition. For the sake of brevity, I shall confine myself to the bare facts. I would be extremely grateful for any guidance you are able to offer.

Age: 50

History: High Blood Pressure (upto 180/108) since a few years despite medication, Vitamin B-12 Defiency, lacks “Intrinsic Factor”, inherited Beta Thalassemia Trait, Overweight by about 30 kgs. Considered “Pre-diabetic” Cholesterol levels normal. Tends to be under stress as she takes up too much responsibility both at work and home. Poor sleeper. Has suffered cramps in calves for years but reduced lately after taking Magnesium supplements.

About a week ago, had to be rushed to hospital with complaint of sudden loss of strength in left leg and to a small extent, in left arm. Both left leg and left arm were observed to twitch and gently sway on their own. Was unable to stand on left leg. Complained of headache with pain located around the crown. Initial diagnosis was sciatica but the “floppiness” in leg and arm was found to be unusual. Was sent home but had to be taken back to hospital the next day as symptoms worsened. This time, tests and scans pointed to a stroke. A clot was found in the front part of the brain. Currently, is on Aspirin, Statins and pain killers. Also undergoing physiotherapy. She is improving on a daily basis but is unable to walk without the support of a walking frame. Left leg still feels weak. Left arm strength has been almost fully regained at this point. There were no apparent signs of memory loss, confusion, facial distortion, slurred speech or vision problems during or after attack. While at hospital, there are on-going tests to determine the cause of the stroke.

Based on personal experience and my own interest in Homeopathy, I have tremendous trust in in the ability of Homeopathic remedies to genuinely cure disease. It is with this trust and hope, I seek your help and guidance to help my wife recover from the effects of this stroke. I would be more than happy to provide any further information you would like.

Looking forward to your guidance,


PS: We are based in the UK and have bought Homeopathic remedies from Ainsworths Homeopathic Pharmacy in the past.

It is very likely that it is your wife’s obesity that is the root cause of the majority of her current medical problems. You did mention “inherited Beta Thalassemia Trait,” but I do not think that this is relevant today.

Her therapy for Obesity will comprise the use of
Nat Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken thrice daily after every meal. You will weigh yourself before you start on my therapy and you can expect a reduction of at least 1kg per week which you will report. What is her current weight?

Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken thrice daily before meals is the remedy to filter the blood and you will discover that the clot will not be visible in under 10 days in an Ultra sound scan which you will report.
Arnica will help her insomnia.

She will stop all drugs as the Arnica prescribed will be far more effective than the Aspirin and the Statins as they will be the cause of other problems.

We can observe her Blood pressure in a week when the remedies prescribed have worked but she may continue the drug she is taking today for BP.

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

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

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

Thank you so much for responding so quickly. Deeply grateful. My wife’s current weight is 90 kgs (height: 5 feet, 3 inches). Her weight problems started with her first pregnancy and got worse with the second one at which time it was established she is insulin-intolerant.

I will obtain Nat. Phos 6x and Arnica 30c immediately. Will submit regular reports, at least on a weekly basis.

Thank you so much for taking the time to help in this moment of crisis.

Belated Birthday Greetings to you!

Thank you for your greetings on my 89th Birthday.

I noticed that I had not copied the instructions to make the Wet dose (Google) and have added it a short while ago.

Thank you for that Doctor. I have been reading that article for a while. Very heartening to know how valuable Arnica is. My love for Homeopathy began during my school days when I was prescribed Kali Phos 30 for improving my memory. I am in my 50s now and firmly believe in the power of Homeopathy. And one when comes across ground-breaking Homeopathic doctors such as yourself, one is inspired ever so much.

Dear Doctor,
The Homeopathic remedies arrived on Saturday, 20th Oct. Prepared Arnica Wet Dose as per your instructions and started her on the treatment. We began to observe some fairly swift improvement in her mobility by late evening on Saturday itself. She has been steadily regaining strength in her left leg and is able to walk about on the frame without anybody else assisting her. She is able to sit up on the bed and get back in without any aid. She is also able to move her left leg fully towards herself while lying on the bed (something which she could not do a few days ago). She can also wiggle her toes fully now! Best of all, she can briefly stand on her feet completely without ANY support to brush her teeth, wash her face, etc.! This is nothing short of a miracle. Her doctors and nurses are hugely impressed and are preparing to discharge her within the next 2-3 days. Also, it looks like her weight has dropped by at least 1 kg in the last few days.

Her left arm which had initially been affected to a small extent is fully functional now.
We are so grateful for your generous guidance. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We are awaiting some test reports. As soon as we have them, I shall share the findings with you.
One question – how long should the Homeopathic treatment continue? We would be concerned about the possibility of a future stroke – I have full faith that Homeopathic remedies can help prevent this. What would you advise by way of prevention? My wife tends to take on a lot of stress. She is also generally quick to lose her temper. Hopefully, she will learn to take thing with calmness now onwards.

Once again, my heartfelt gratitude to you for helping us in this moment of crisis.

Warm regards,

PS: A few hours after I completed this draft, my wife has been discharged from hospital and she’s back home now. She’s able to climb stairs with a little bit of support from the railing. Will write a detailed post shortly.

I am delighted to learn that my therapy aka “Joepathy” worked so very quickly and that your patient responded in just a few hours after starting on my therapy.

It is possible that she set the record in her response in a few hours and I am happy that she was discharged in just 3 days after using my therapy.

I shall look forward to your detailed report of her case which I can embody in the section I devote on my Website for outstanding cases which can be accessed by those who may like to read more about Joepathy which was once condemned by classical homeopaths as not being Homeopathy as I refused to conform to the classical rules which specify that one “treats the symptoms of the disease with a single remedy”.
