    Dear mr livra

    I am a chinese lady from hong kong. I’ve been following your trace in abc homeopathy for sometime and always practise your arnica wet dose. Recently my dad who is 83 is diagnois of diebetes.I want to give him arnica wet dose. However, I want to know how to make a second bottle as the first bottle was shaked to an unknown potency. This has always been my query. I hope you can solve my problem so that i can give my dsd a proper treatment. Your advice is highly apreciated.

    Best regards

      It is good to learn that you have been following my cases on the ABC and I am glad that you posted your dad’s case on my website.

      I note that your dad who is just one year younger to me at 83 suffers from Diabetes. You do not however give me more data on his problem as to how long he has suffered from it and what his Blood Sugar level is. Also what therapy he has taken for his BS level with details of the drugs he is taking for it.

      I shall respond after you give me this data.

      Please note that my name is Joe De Livera and NOT “livra”.
      You are invited to look again at my website.

    According to your experience, arnica is a rather safe remedy whih can be taken for years. that’s why i want him to take it for as long as he can.
    It has always been bothering me about making the second bottle of remedy. Do you think i should leave a few drops of the remedy from the first bottle by adding in another 400 ml of water and three pellets? in this way, i can retain they of the fir

    In this way i can retain the potency of the first bottle and move to the next potency without going backward.
    As you have taken arnica for years, I wonder how you make a new bottle every time. Can you enlighten me on this area?

      To answer your question would take me far too much time which I do not have.

      Suggest you do a Google search for

      Wet dose

      This will bring up many posts made by me throughout the past 10 years and hopefully help to answer your questions/

    “The most important ailment to be treated is now Plumonary Fibrosis & intraparenchymal lung nodules .
    This disease has been discussed many times on homeopathic websites.
    Please advice my on a treatment based on your knowledge.”

    I regret that I do not have any experience in treating your disease above.

    Since you have already been helped by my therapy, I would suggest that you continue with it in the hope that the therapy I have prescribed so far which has helped you, will also help your Plumonary Fibrosis & intraparenchymal lung nodules .

  6. Joe says:

    Jimmy

    As you are aware, you have presented many medical problems at the same time, which is unusual for a patient, and I have prescribed many remedies in the recent past in the hope that you can be helped.

    You now wish to add 3 more remedies which you discovered on my website for the common cold which I did not prescribe for you and gives me the impression that you are a HYPOCHONDRIAC.

    I hope that you understand that you cannot take homeopathic remedies on the basis of THE MORE THE MERRIER as this will lead to REMEDY OVERLOAD and you can be faced with more problems like aggravation of your many ailments and diseases. You have confirmed that some of your ailments for which I prescribed have been cured and I presume that you now wish to continue with this healing process at the same level. You must understand that it is not possible to work miracles of healing in the manner that you seem to expect and you will have to learn to be patient and use the remedies I have prescribed as you cannot expect to be CURED instantly.

    Respected Dr.Joe
    With great respect I have beeen going through your response on the forum for various ailments and this has given me an encouragement to write to u.
    I am not a homeopath but just like u I got interested in homeopathy coached by two Sanyasis who have contributed a lot by bringing out vibronic mixtures. Coming to the point. I am given an opportunity by the God to serve in medical camps ( every second and fourth sunday total 24 camps in ayear)organised by one charity trust in Gujarat India without charging any money for the consultation, medicine and the food. It is totally free. In these camps the o.p.d. runs to more than 4000 patients of various ailments of which 50% from skin disease. MOst of them are of Leucoderma, psoriasis etc. We have a homepathic section also . Would u be able to guide us for the treatment of Leucoderma ( if u have used the treatment successfully or hopeful of a success), in which we in homeopathic section do not have much success. However the allopaths do have good rate of success.

    Once again I salute u and bow before u for the selfless work u have been doing for the mankind.

    Looking forward to your response.

      I am glad to note that you have visited my website and that you appreciate the therapy aka “Joepathy” that I use to treat patients. I also appreciate your kind words which I feel that I do not deserve.

      As you may be aware, I am 84 years of age and am not a professional Homeopath. I have studied this science since 1965 and when I discovered that I do have some gift of healing with Homeopathic Remedies which I first used in the standard classical manner with the 2 hours long case taking procedure which I soon discovered was just a lot of rubbish and so unnecessary as they are designed by the homeopathic colleges to enable their graduates to extract money from the poor suffering patient by prolonging their agony. I then decided to use standard Homeopatic remedies in my own way “This for That” therapy based on my own experience in their use which I have detailed on my website, and when I discovered that my Joepathy was superior to the classical method in terms of the actual rate of cure, I decided to collate my therapy on my website in the hope that it can be of some use to persons like you, who can read my therapy and also read the responses of patients whom I have treated, and it you feel that they are of any use, you could prescribe them to your own patients and. it will be my pleasure to learn from you if my therapy has helped them.

      As for Vitiligo and Psoriasis, I regret that I have not been successful in treating them and it is very rarely that these diseases can be cured. I do not agree that drugs have been successfully used to CURE them as they are both Autoimmune diseases due to some mix up in the genes and there is very little that we can do about them, except perhaps, pray.

      You made mention of 2 Sanyasis who specialised in “Vibronic Mixtures”.
      I shall be very interested to have more information on them.

      Please feel free to address any difficult cases to me, if you would like me to help you in your efforts to help suffering humanity.

    Hi Joe,
    My 38 year old son-in-law has narcolepsy. It seems to be an inherited trait in this family background. Do you know of a cure for this?

    Also, the same son-in-law has fibromyalgia. He is in constant pain.
    Can you tell us a cure for this ?

    ( I am so dumb. I had thought you were going to answer by using my email address ) Forgive this ole lady.

    Carol Cole

    • Joe says:

      Carol Cole

      Your son’s case interests me although I have never treated a case of Narcolepsy before.

      You stated:
      “My 38 year old son-in-law has narcolepsy. It seems to be an inherited trait in this family background.”

      I would like to have full details of his background including the background of his immediate family and what therapy and the drugs that were used to help them.

      You also stated that he was in constant pain. Where?
      What drugs are/were used to help him?

      In my last post in response to yours, I instructed you to post your case on the ABC but I have not seen it there so far.

      I have helped Diabetics with Arnica 3c in the Wet dose and 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 3c in the Wet dose which is taken twice daily.

      Type I patients have confirmed that they discovered their BS levels were reduced by about 20-30% within a day of their starting on this therapy. One has confirmed that his BS level reduced by 75% in about a month and he was able to reduce the Insulin he was using by this amount.

      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 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 6c and the Mag Phos 6x are taken as prescribed.

      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. There has been a reference to Turmeric powder helping Diabetics and you can use a quarter teaspoonful twice daily like the Cinnamon.

      Arnica will also help your Diabetic Ulcer and you can also dampen the ulcer with the Arnica from the bottle as I have observed that the medicated water works like magic to heal lesions. It is best to make a separate bottle of the remedy with about 15 drops of the Liquid Dilution of Arnica 3c which is NOT TO BE TAKEN ORALLY.

      I would also like to have more details of your Sciatica which I believe may also be helped by the Arnica.

      Please note that you cannot use the small lactose pellets to make the Wet dose.
      You must get the Liquid Dilution to do so.

      • Carol Cole says:

        Hello, Joe !

        You commented that you had not seen anything from me on ABC after you told me to go through THAT website. I DID contact that website…but as I told you…I am totally clueless in using a computer/websites.
        Anyway, I am absolutely thrilled to see that you responded to my email concerning my son-in-law and problems. His wife’s name is Beth, and I am going to call her to give you more details.
        As for the sciatica, the small of my back hurts, but MAINLY the pain goes down the outside of my leg. In the mornings, I will take a warm shower and about halfway thru it, my leg starts hurting. I ALWAYS seek a warm blanket for myself when lying down. If I walk, Painfully, I have to HURRY Because the slower I walk, the worse it hurts. I hurt sitting down and I hurt when walking, and I hurt when in bed, but not near as much as when sitting/walking.Sometimes when trying to walk, I have to stop and bend over towards my knees for several seconds to be able to go on.
        Thank you for telling me about the arnica for my feet, Joe.
        Now…….my big question of the day………..NOT being a homeopath, I sort of “learned off the cuff”………….I have always ordered my remedies in the
        Dry tiny pellet form, added the alcohol and proper water……….and then “bang 5/take 5”. Yet you are saying NOT to make this up from the pellets? Can you explain why for me, since this is the only way I know to do it……..unless taking the salts form of the pills??? ( Careful……you’ll confuse me. ! )

        I’ll contact Beth to talk with you about Dalton.

        Thank you, Joe !

          I hope that you can be helped by Arnica 30c in the Wet dose.

          Please follow the instructions below to make the Wet dose. This protocol has been refined after many years of use and is the Ultimate way to use any homeopathic remedy.
          Do NOT use your method which is just a waste of time.

          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.

          • Carol Cole says:

            Hello Joe,

            Okay……use the Wet Dose. I’ve plugged that into my head.

            One thing I am confused about, however……in your April 4th response to me, you mentioned Arnica 3C Wet Dose ( plus Mag. Phos 6 X ). And that recommendation was for my Type II Diabetes. But, then on your April 6th reply was for me to try Arnica 30 C ( Wet Dose)………which I am assuming would be for my Sciatica. To aim at BOTH ailments, am I to use the Arnica 3 C OR the Arnica 30 C ?

            Thank you, Joe !

            Carol Cole

            • Joe says:

              Carol Cole

              This is a problem that I encounter without realizing it as I am treating 2 of your ailments for which I copied my default therapies. In any case the lower potency will overpower the higher. You will ignore the Arnica 30c and only take the 3c.

    Hi Dr. Joe: I originally posted this in the March archive following my last post. Not sure if it was in the correct location.

    Thank you again for your help with my mother. I bought the Nat Phos 6x and the Kali Phos 6x. It has been difficult finding the Arnica 3c liquid dilution in “80%” alcohol. I checked all your homeopathy sites listed in previous posts. Ainsworths has it in 96% alcohol, but they are in the UK. I found the 3c here in the US at a site called Rite Care Pharmacy (http://www.ritecare.com) Arnica 3c liquid dilution. The only problem is it is in “20%” alcohol. Would it be appropriate to use, and if so, how much shall I order 1oz. or 2oz’s?

    Thank you again,
    Denyse

    • Joe says:

      Denyse de Freitas

      The Arnica 3c in the 20% alcohol is OK and you can order the 1oz as you will only be using 3 drops.

      I do not recollect your mum’s case but presume that she suffers from Diabetes.

      • Denyse de Freitas says:

        Hi Dr. Joe

        Thank you for your quick response. I have ordered the Arnica 3c for my mom. Her case is similar to Paul’s with a primary dx of Aortic Stenosis. Yes she is also a Type 2 Diabetic. Looking forward to begin the therapy.
        Thanks again for your kindness.

        Denyse de Freitas

        • Joe says:

          Denyse de Freitas

          You will have to decide on the potency of Arnica which is most effective for Diabetes at 3c in the WD.
          For Aortic Stenosis the potency is 30c which is the same potency that I have prescribed for many patients with Cardiac problems.

          I cannot decide for you as it just depends on which of her diseases is the more pressing to be treated.
          You cannot use 2 potencies of the same remedy as the lower will overtake the higher.

          In the circumstances it may be more prudent to use Arnica 6c which can help both her Cardiac and Diabetic problems.

          • Denyse de Freitas says:

            Dear Dr. Joe,

            My apologies to you for this delayed reply, as I have been without my computer for some time. We just received the Arnica 3c liquid dilution, but have not begun the therapy as yet. As of right now my Mom’s Cardiac problem is more pressing. Her Diabetes is stable, she is not overweight, always eats right, lots of veg and little sweets or meats.

            Since you stated: “In the circumstances it may be more prudent to use Arnica 6c which can help both her Cardiac and Diabetic problems.” I will now order the Arnica 6c in the liquid dilution. Just for certainty, she is to have for her Aortic Stenosis & Diabetes:

            Arnica 6c in the Wet Dose taken thrice daily.
            Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken thrice daily after meals..
            Kali Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken thrice daily

            I have copied your instructions for Wet Dose preparation:

            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.

            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 dr.Joe
    Thanks for your prompt and frank reply about vitiligo and psoriasis. About Vitiligo I agree with you. In several cases of psoriasis it was possible to reduce the disease by almost 90% in six to eight months but remaining 10 to 20%keep on returning However the patients do get relief even with this much recovery.

    If u can let me know yor e-mail id on my my e-mail, I can inform u about Vibronic mixtures as I would like to avoid unnecessary misunderstanding, contadictions and arguments with those following your site including conventional homeopaths who would not like any one following the Radical approach like yours.

    Meantime I would appreciate if u can let me know whether your treatment for diabetes ( arnica 3c in wet dose, cinnamon powder, turmeric powder etc) would also work in Juvenile diabetes Insuline based where the pancreas does not produce insulin) or the treatment will have to change? I have a patient 20 years of agevery bright in studies having diabetes since last 6 to 7 years.She takes 40 to 45 units a day. The BSlevel flctuates and sometimes reaches to 300 even with insulin and may drop below 60. Her BSlevel in my opinion depends most of the time on her mental conditions.
    Pulse is 90 to 95 and many times get palpitations even at night disturbing the sleep. With out insulin BSlevel jumps above 400 and she becomes dizzy and gets headache. If u need more information I can provide.

    Once again thanking you

      Your 20 year old patient seems to be an interesting prospect to do a few studies with Arnica in various potencies.

      Start with the 3c in the Wet dose and report her BS response in 6 hours. Some patients have reported a drop of 25% of the BS level in that period. In her case she will obviously have to keep taking Insulin but you can tell her that a family of Diabetics in Mumbai are using Arnica 6c and have reported a 75% drop of their BS level.

      I note your reference to her Arrhythmia and she should experience some relief with the Arnica which I have observed helps to settle this problem which is not easy to do with drugs. She MUST exercise and drink plenty of water to help her to recover better. Is she overweight? This too can be a causative factor.

      After we have this data we can progress to 12x, 6x and later still to 3x to observe the BS level response.

      I have a patient who presented a BS level of 535 who is CURED today. I gave him Arnica 6c in the Wd and in about 3 years he is totally free of all drugs and homeopathic remedies. He exercises daily for about an hour and tries to abstain from carbs but not totally.It can safely be said that my therapy has stimulated his Islets of Langerhan in the Pancreas to produce Insulin.

      I have sent you an email to enable you to send your information.

      I have suggested a total vegan diet to a patient who presented Psoriasis and it has helped him greatly.

    Dear Sir,

    I have followed a number of threads on various homeopathic websites where I could read of many people whose refluxy babies were helped by your suggested remedy of Nat Phos 6x and Arnica in the wet dose.

    I have a 12 weeks old girl who suffers from acid reflux, is fed a combination of breast and formula milk throughout the day (one bottle of formula in the afternoon usually) and is on 6 ml Ranitidine, 3 times a day, every 6 hours.

    I am so opposed to her taking this medication and every time I have to administer it, I feel my stomach in knots and wish I didn’t have to.

    The Ranitidine has helped eliminating the acids and baby Sophia no longer suffers as she did before. However I want to try your method – and I thought I’d get in touch with you first as I certainly want to make sure I buy the right products, and that I give her the right amounts of them.

    I have ordered the Nat Phos 6x and am waiting for its delivery.

    I have already purchased Arnica – ARNICA MONTANA (ARNICA) Liquid 10ml : 30c

    I also bought Nux Vomica in pillules.

    I have not yet used any of the remedies, and feel I’d like to hear back from you before I do, because even though I have read administering instructions you gave to other people, I still feel more secure if I am in touch with you before I go about it.
    I am a complete novice to homeopathy, I have never used it and know absolutely nothing of it.

    But when our babies are involved we’d do absolutely anything to make them feel better and I am confident that your methods will help.

    The vast majority of the forums are so full of sad stories, and negative posts that take away all hopes, whilst the posts about Nat Phos 6x all talk of cure, healing, miraculous effects and are positive and encouraging.

    I am hoping that you will not mind to take the time to read and reply, and I will most certainly take the time to write my progress on the website so that others can learn about Joepathy and the healing powers of homeopathic medicine.

    Thanks for your time,
    I very much hope to hear from you soon.

    Best wishes,
    Sarah

      I wonder if you are aware that it was I that first started this current revolution in prescribing Nat Phos 6x to help GERD both in Adults and in Babies. The standard classical remedies used do not include Nat Phos 6x and I can state that they are all equally ineffective. In direct comparion Nat Phos 6x seems to help the patient within a few minutes of the first dose.

      I am glad to read your statement:
      “The vast majority of the forums are so full of sad stories, and negative posts that take away all hopes, whilst the posts about Nat Phos 6x all talk of cure, healing, miraculous effects and are positive and encouraging.”

      I must admit that I was not aware of these numerous references to my therapy aka “Joepathy” and it does give me some satisfaction at my advanced age of 84 that my ‘discovery’ has merited wide acclaim.

      I shall copy below my default therapy for Baby GERD:

      Please note that you will NOT use any remedy other than Nat Phos 6x for the moment. You seem to have mixed up my adult therapy with the therapy I prescribe for Babies.

      It is very likely that your baby suffers from Gastric Reflux aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease)

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

      Nat Phos 6x dose half tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

      Please confirm 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.

      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 this remedy will also 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 .

      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.

      • Sarah says:

        Thanks, Mr De Livera

        I have never burped Sophia, as she doesn’t seem to need to. Whenever I burp her she vomits in large amounts, Sophia spontaneously burps when she needs to. Is that going to interfere with the cure?

        I am glad that the Nat Phos will also help me lose weight, but what if I didn’t need to lose weight? Also, would it have the same effect on Sophia? She definitely doesn’t need to lose weight, on the contrary, she could do with a little extra.

        One final question I have for you is: I understand how, Nat Phos can help reflux in that it’s a natural acid neutralizer. What don’t understand is how it can actually cure reflux, as in, resolve the problem.

        Please don’t get me wrong, I am not implying that I don’t believe it will work. I have read of enough cases where it has worked. I am just trying to understand the principles by which it is an effective cure, and maybe playing devil’s advocate.

        As far as I understand, GERD is typically caused by the malfunctioning of the sphincter that separates the stomach from the esophagus. This is a mechanical cause, and in babies where this valve doesn’t function correctly – due to the immaturity of the digestive tract – this mechanical cause is naturally outgrown by the time the digestive system is more mature.

        How can Nat Phos (which I understand to be basically very similar to bicarbonate of soda) correct a mechanichal malfunctioning?

        I am not implying that I don’t believe, I’m merely trying to understand how it works.

        Many thanks,

You may like to know that here in Sri Lanka where I live, I give the medicines in a bottle of spring water free of charge.

          I find it strange that you do not BURP baby as this is something that I have done myself many years ago when I brought up 3 sons. At that time I was not into Homeopathy and I remember that the eldest was like your own, and would projectile vomit daily, all over me and the floor which added to the problems in bringing him up. I did not experience any problems with burping baby and you must also do so to enable the air which is sucked in to be eased out.

          Nat Phos 6x can be considered as my own discovery aka “Joepathy” and it works in the manner that is best described by Dr Schuessler who first discovered the Biochemic Cell Salts and states in his notes

          “Natrium Phosphoricum

          Notes by Dr Schuessler

          Sodium and Phosphate ions are to be found in our body in the muscle, nerve and brain cells, in the blood corpuscles and in the tissue fluids. According to Dr Schuessler, Nat Phos splits the lactic acid, which is produced by the work of muscles into carbonic acid and water. The carbonic acid is absorbed by the sodium phosphate and brought to the lungs where it is eliminated in the process of breathing. If sodium phosphate is lacking, there results an excess of lactic acid and consequently a sour taste, heart burn, sour stools, vomiting of sour, caseous matter, particularly in babies who are overfed with sugar and milk. If lactic acid reaches the lymphatic glands, the albumin of the lymph glands coagulates and the gland begins to swell. In the initial stages of swelling of the lymphatic glands therefore, Nat Phos has a healing effect because it can split lactic acid. Nat Phos further assures that the uric acid of the blood which is formed by the splitting up of the albuminous substance is kept in solution and secreted by the kidneys. Should this not be the case, uric acid will be deposited in the joints. The sequels are Rheumatism. Gout, Sciatica, Lumbago. In the Gall, Nat Phos saponifies the fatty acids which have been consumed with the food. It is hence indicated against digestive disturbances resulting from excessive consumption of fat.

          Re: question for joe re: gerd remedy
          From Joe De Livera [Log on to view profile] on 2006-07-16

          I am almost embarrassed by the reports in the posts above on the successful outcome of cases of GERD which I treated with my default remedies Nat Phos 6x and Arnica 30. I have always maintained that I am not a qualified homeopath but I do have the dedication to this science which has given me the opportunity of using many remedies for ailments that are not listed in the classical texts as a result of which I have been marked as one who rocks the homeopathic boat and is perhaps the reason for the wide spread criticism that I often encounter even on this forum by some pseudo classical types.

          I felt that I should take this opportunity of once again projecting my viewpoint on the use of the Non classical approach towards healing which I am aware is held in utter scorn by the classical school of homeopaths who would never even dream of using simple remedies in the manner that I do to heal patients who usually come to Homeopathy as a last resort when after years of being under treatment from gastric specialists who would delight in prescribing various drugs that are used in medicine for GERD like Nexium, Prilosec, Tagamet, and Zantac to name only a few, all of which are expensive and are H2 blockers and operate by reducing the flow of acid in the stomach. They use these drugs when it is discovered that the patient does not react to the OTC drugs bases on Aluminium Hydroxide which were popular up to about a decade ago which operate by neutralizing the acidity in the stomach. All these powerful drugs serve only as palliatives and can by no means be considered as a cure of GERD in any form. They also have known side effects which are too numerous to list here. They all are only palliatives and members would have read on this and other threads how many patients have suffered for years, even up to 45 years with GERD, only to experience the blessed relief that my treatment of this seemingly chronic disease which sometimes ends in cancer, when in a few weeks on Nat Phos and Arnica they are able to return to normal health which is the right of every human being.

          It is a matter of concern to me personally to note the reaction of the classical homeopathic fraternity to the methodology I use to treat ailments. I have no quarrel with them but I do resent their continued attacks on other forums which I have stopped visiting as I spent too much time in defending my position of treating the disease instead of virtually going round the bush and using the ‘constitutional remedy’ approach to solve a problem which I have proved is not at all necessary to cure a disease like GERD or others that I specialize in and which members of this forum may be aware of.

          I do not rule out the use of the classical approach to cure but I feel that it is time that the classical homeopathic fraternity wakes up and condescends to use methods similar to my own which is to treat the disease, after taking into account the various factors that cause it, if it is considered pertinent to the diagnosis. The point that I wish to convey is that if a certain remedy has been proved to help a patient who suffers from GERD there is no possible excuse that can be made by the homeopath to use other remedies purported to be the classically sanctioned remedy merely because they are listed in the Homeopathic texts. Medicine and Homeopathy are progressing forward daily and with it new discoveries are made in both sciences. I believe that it would be foolish for the respective science to not use a drug or remedy merely because it is not officially sanctioned and permitted to be used if it has been discovered to also help the ailment being treated.

          I can think of another serendipitous discovery on my part of using Arnica for the control of Diabetes. I had given this remedy to a Type I Diabetic to help cure his non healing wound and he discovered that his blood sugar level had dropped in a remarkable manner that he had not experienced ever before. Arnica is now being used by many homeopaths both here in Sri Lanka and in India and I presume in other parts of the world after I first announced my discovery on the Internet.

          I do hope that others too will follow my example and not hesitate to use a remedy in the manner that I have done and if they too discover a response to a remedy that is not listed, I hope that they too will share their discovery with others on forums such as these.

          I believe that this will help the forward march of this precious science into the future.

          I can confirm CATERGORICALLY that Nat Phos CANNOT AND WILL NOT cause baby to lose weight although it will reduce yours if you are overweight. If you do not wish to lose weight you can check your weight weekly and if you do discover that you are losing weight, which any mother would love to do, you can always stop it even though it is helping baby through your breast milk.

          • Sarah says:

            Thanks, Mr De Livera.

            Should I burp Sophia before she takes the 1/2 tablet dissolved in milk? If I am breastfeeding, would it be OK if I dissolved the tablet in formula instead?

            They sound like silly questions, but I am genuinely wanting to know.

            The Nat Phos 6x has arrived and I will start the treatment tomorrow morning with the first feed.

            I am unable to start tonight as I have given Sophia Ranitidine already today, and you suggested giving Nat Phos with no other remedy/meds.

            Many thanks,
            Sarah

            • Joe says:

              Sarah

              Burping is only done a few minutes after a feed.
              There is usually no air trapped in the stomach before a feed.

          • Sarah says:

            Dear Sir,
            I have started the Nat Phos treatment this morning, as follows:

            1) I gave Sophia 1/2 tablet of Nat Phos 6x dissolved in 10 ml of expressed breastmilk using a syringe.

            2) I took 2 tablets myself after a breakfast of oatibix (Wholegrain Oats (97%), Malted Barley Extract, Sugar, Salt.) in full fat milk and a spoon of agave nectar accompanied by a cup of Fennel tea.

            3) I have not yet taken the 5 spoons of Arnica in the Wet dose which I have prepared to be ready to start taking it once Sophia’s reflux has gotten better.

            Sophia burped spontaneously before I gave her the Nat Phos. The sound she made was that of a ‘wet burp’.

            She vomited quite a bit this morning immediately after the Nat Phos. The vomit was liquid and not curdly, which makes me think that the ranitidine is still in circle. We administered the last Ranitidine dose yesterday evening at 7pm.

            I am concerned that the Nat Phos may have been ‘thrown out’ together with the vomited milk this morning, and I wanted to administer it again, but my partner disagreed and so we decided to see how she goes as it is, without giving her it again.

            She went on and had a short nap (she normally is a terrible day sleeper, so no difference there, and recently she started to sleep poorly at night as well).

            I will keep an eye on her napping throughout the day to see if I notice any differences, as I read that Nat Phos can improve sleep and in some cases may make it worse.

            By the way… It is paramount that I address her sleep issues once I stabilize the situation of her reflux, so I may ask again for your help on this matter in the future, if you will allow me, and also if the sleep is not automatically improved as a result of the improvement on the reflux front).

            I will keep you updated in the next few hours,

            Thanks & regards,
            Sarah

            • Joe says:

              Sarah

              Please be informed that I cannot be expected to read your very detailed posts although I made an exception in your case in my email in response to yours.

              I am not interested in your details of your breakfast as it is totally irrelevant and takes up too much of my time which I cannot spare.

              Please explain:
              “3) I have not yet taken the 5 spoons of Arnica in the Wet dose which I have prepared to be ready to start taking it once Sophia’s reflux has gotten better.”

      • Sarah says:

        I also wanted to add that I was aware that you are the pioneer of this method (Nat Phos) to treat GERD, and I am also very grateful that people like you exist. I also learned that you don’t ask for money for your consultation, how often can this be said of other practitioners?

        This has convinced me that a man your age, and who doesn’t demand payment for his services can only be moved by a genuine desire to help others.

        I just wish there were more people like you in this world where time is a very expensive currency.

        Many thanks,
        Sarah

        • Sarah says:

          I meant, should the burping be done before or after the nat phos+milk?

          Again, is formula OK?

          Thanks,

    • Joe says:

      Pravin Dali

      I shall copy my default therapy for your Diabetes and it is very likely that the Arnica will also help with your insomnia.

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

      Type I patients have confirmed that they discovered their BS levels were reduced by about 20-30% within a day of their starting on this therapy. One has confirmed that his BS level reduced by 75% in about a month and he was able to reduce the Insulin he was using by this amount.

      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 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 6c and the Mag Phos 6x are taken as prescribed.

      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.

          “I have 12 salts inpowder form.therefore I statrted taking MP12X from yasterday.”

          It is very likely that I am just wasting my time on you as you seem to be taking Homeopathic remedies which are not prescribed which may not help you. You CANNOT use Biochemic Cell Salts in the manner that you seem to be doing.

          If and when you do decide to use my therapy which has helped thousands of patients EXCLUSIVELY, you may contact me.

  14. Beth Sexton says:

    Hello! My mother contacted you about my husband who has narcolepsy and fibromyalgia. I will try to answer your questions as best as I can, but we don’t know a whole lot about his Aunt, who is the family member that had narcolepsy. She is deceased now. She lived to be 82 and was diagnosed with narcolepsy around 25 years old. Both she and my husband took/take the same basic medicines. He has taken provigil and maxed out at 400 mgs/day, but this only helped him for a few hours in the morning time. For the narcolepsy, he is currently on Nuvigil 250 mgs daily, Ritalin LA 40 mgs in the morning and 20 mgs at 1:00 PM, Effexor XR 150 mgs in the morning and 75 mgs at 1:00 PM (this helps directly with the cataplexy that he has inherently from the narcolepsy). He has high blood pressure, therefore they have to be selective about what they give him. It did not become a serious issue until approximately age 33 (he is 39 now), but there were symptoms there from childhood. For example, he had hypnagogic hallucinations and sleep paralysis as a child. By age 33, though, his work production was slowing down and he was having a lot of trouble staying awake while working. When he gave up smoking cigarettes though, it seems like the symptoms kicked in to overdrive. This was very intriguing to us and we have since found a study about some ingredient in nicotine that has been found to keep some neurological symptoms at bay, such as Alzheimer’s, and when people who are predisposed to it quit smoking, suddenly the neurological problems kick in strongly. Anyway, his medicines now keep his head clearer than any other doses, but he still spends much of his day in and out of brain fogginess.

    As for the fibromyalgia, he is in constant pain at all times, all over his body. His joints always hurt and his muscles ache. He describes it like the overall feeling of having the flu. He is fatigued at all times and has an overall sense of general malaise. His hands get so swollen that they look and feel like they’re about to explode and he feels awful and doesn’t want to get out of bed. When he does get out of bed, he tires very quickly. The doctor just started him on Mobic daily for the pain and joint inflammation and then he gave him Tramadol for the days when the pain is worse. Honestly, I’m not sure how that is going to help with the fatigue and malaise feelings, but if it’ll help with the pain, it’s better than nothing. Do you have any suggestions for us? Thank you sooooooo much for trying to help us.

    Sincerely,
    Beth

    • Joe says:

      Beth Sexton

      It is very likely that your husband’s Narcolepsy is due to some problem inherent in his genes, for which I am not aware of any Homeopathic remedy that can help.

      It would however be interesting to use the remedies listed below which may help him.

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken thrice daily to filter and increase the flow of blood throughout his body and to his brain.
      Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken immediately after each of 3 meals daily to help with his digestion and the elimination of the fats other debris in his system.
      Hypericum 200 taken every 3 hours to assuage his pain.

      Please visit:

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

      It would be in order to reduce all but the most essential drugs that he is taking for his ailment to give the Arnica a better chance to help him. I am not in a position to indicate which these drugs are but you are in a better position to do so yourself.

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

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

      Please report his response weekly and mention any details that you may notice in his general outlook which may arise when the Arnica helps by increasing the blood flow to his brain which can then cause his symptoms to abate.

      It is possible that you fall into the 20%.

      Before you give up on Arnica use the Arnica 3c which has helped stubborn cases that do not respond to the 6c.

    Dear Dr. Livera,

    Two years back I was diagonised Morrbid Parkinson.I am 49 years old, suffering from light tremor of right hand for some (3/4) years.The tremor ocures mostly during writing or using spoon to eat something. Carrying a glass of water or tea cups etc. Holding something higher up..this is particularly visible. Asked to fill some form in public places, such as airport or so..becomes an embarassing situation. Please help & advice to rejuvenate nerves system.

    As I already mentioned about the light tremor of my right hand,..but this was not so remarkable as there were not much worstening of this situation (depending on time and situation). But recently..say some 5/6 months, I noticed that doing something like..say..buttoning shirts with both the hands or holding something with both the hands..trying to keep it still, makes the back of my head and back of neck-shoulder also experience slight (very light almost inner) tremor. I am very much anxious about this developement. Could you please help….Would there be some kind of food restriction too ?

    Iam currently under allopathic diagonistic help from neuro Physician Sorry to bother you…but it would be a great help from your side with your competence knowledge and advice from the field of homeopathy or if I may, ‘Joepathy’. Some people bluntly say..this is parkinson, there seems to be no cure. The situation would worsen with the time. Could you please help. I just don’t want to belive this ..as I have been and still is very active with sports…physical excercises et all. Please give me some hope to go on with life…. which has almost remained confined to home and office.
    Thanking you once again for your reply with valuable suggestion, in advance

    • Joe says:

      You state that you were diagnosed with “Morrbid Parkinson”.

      I have no knowledge of your disease and it is also not listed on the web.
      I shall be interested to have more precise data on your diagnosis and also what drugs were prescribed by your doctors.

      The symptoms you have listed can suggest the onset of Parkinson’s disease but at your age of 49 this seems unlikely.

      Where do you live?

  22. Deepankar says:

    Dear Dr. Livera,

    Srry about my typo…it’s morbus parkinson. I am on ‘requip’ medicine. It’s not dopamin…but a kind of synthetic receptor…which act like dopamin. (that’s what the docctor said). I live in border of France, region called Elsass. My doctor, as i am not really eager too, think for my age dopamin shoud not be prescribed.. and frankly..I have not much effinity for medicine…which will not help me in the long run.

    Needless to say, with due respect I have been going through your response on the forum for various ailments and this has given me quasi a hope …Please help. In case you need to know more..I could send you the MRI of two years back,,,which confirmed ‘parkinson’.

    With due regards

      I have treated 2 cases of Parkinsons with the following remedies, both taken in the Wet dose made as per instructions below:

      Gelsemium 1M
      Arnica 1M

      Take teaspoonful twice daily leaving about half hour between remedies.

      I cannot state that they were cured but the patients did indicate that they felt that there was some improvement in their general condition. They were both very old (over 80 years) and were both on L Dopa and other drugs for many years.

      Your case is interesting and I would like to have news of your response in due course.

      In the meanwhile continue with your exercise regimen as this is important to keep the brain waves in action.

      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.

      It occurred to me that your drugs will antidote the Homeopathy.
      If at all possible STOP THEM.

    Dear Dr. De Livera,

    Thank you a ton for your Suggestion and the Details of the doses. I would surely stop all other drugs, which I anyway don’t fancy much, don’t even know if helps me at all.

    Since I am not very much convinced with my medicine… I could surely live without. Question remains… how Long would you ssuggest me to go for the said doses before…one could say if it works or not ?

    Thanking you once again from the bottom of my heart..

    with due regards

      You have inquired for how long you must wait for results after using my “Joepathy”.

      The patients whom I treated reported feeling a difference in their condition in a little over a week but they were on various deep acting drugs too while on my therapy.

      It would be of interest from an academic angle to observe how you respond as you have decided to quit all drugs.

      I shall count on your reports on a regular weekly basis or more often if you wish to keep me posted.

  25. Sarah says:

    Thanks Mr De Livera.

    “3) I have not yet taken the 5 spoons of Arnica in the Wet dose which I have prepared to be ready to start taking it once Sophia’s reflux has gotten better.” means that – following the suggestion you gave me via email, I have not taken Arnica in the wet dose, yet.

    Extract from your email message:

    “You can use Urtica Urens 30c in the Wet dose to stimulate your milk output. The problem with this remedy is that I am not aware of how it can affect baby and I would prefer that you do not use it till you have sorted matters out with baby.

    You will follow my instructions to make the Wet dose of Arnica and you will use the whole 500 ml WITHOUT any additions till you finish it in about 2 months. *Here too I would prefer that you do not use it till baby has settled with my therapy.*

    Sorry about long detailed report.
    I cannot know what is and what isn’t of interest, but I will tailor my reports to what is strictly relevant in the future, if what I eat is of no consequence, I will leave it out of my posts.

    However, baby vomited again today after her midday feed + Nat Phos 6x.
    Additionally she was woken up during her afternoon nap by the choking/cough caused by another spit up episode.

    I will now only update you if anything of interest happens, max once a day and using short sentences, if that’s preferable.

    Best wishes,
    Sarah

      You have failed to explain how you arrived at the 5 SPOONS OF ARNICA IN THE WET DOSE.
      Wherever did you get this notion of the 5 SPOONS?

      Increase the half tablet you are giving baby to a full tablet and report if the increased dose helps her better.

      • Sarah says:

        Yes – sorry, I misunderstood your question.

        I cannot recall where I found that ‘one capful’ of a liquid can equate to approx five teasponfuls, Your recommended dose is one capful,

        I will stick to one capful as a dosage when I do start taking Arnica, is this the recommended amount?

        It’s been about 40 hours since we stopped the Ranitidine, I have increased the Nat Phos dose to one tablet dissolved in 10 ml milk and administered this new dosage for three feeds since yesterday evening, but the results have been mixed.

        She vomited copious amounts straight after the feeds, however she doesn’t seem in particular pain. The spit up was both of the ‘curdly’ type as well as the ‘white liquid’ type, and has started to smell acid again, which in a way is a relief because it probably indicates that the Ranitidine is leaving her system, but at the same time leaves me wondering whether the Nat Phos is being absorbed – and if it is, then I wonder if it is effective.

        I am here praying that it works, how long does it usually take for Nat Phos to start giving results?

        Many thanks,
        Sarah

    Hello:

    I have been following some of your posts on the abc homeopathy website about infant reflux…My baby is currently 5 weeks old and spits up after EVERY feed…I know this can be somewhat normal but his fussiness, turning bright red and crying that comes with the spit up doesn’t seem normal to me…I feel so horrible for him that even after being full he is still so uncomfortable..I read your post about nat phos but I didn’t want to try anything without consulting first…and wanted to know proper dosage of things…I wanted to try a natural approach before I went to the doctor and have them prescribe zantac or something like that! thanks again!

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD below:

      It is very likely that your baby suffers from Gastric Reflux aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease)

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

      Nat Phos 6x dose half tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

      Please confirm 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.

      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 this remedy will also 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 .

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

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

    I needed to post you this little bit of remark to be able to say thank you over again for those superb opinions you have featured on this site. It was really seriously open-handed of people like you to offer easily just what a few individuals could possibly have distributed as an e-book in order to make some dough for themselves, and in particular given that you might have tried it if you desired. The points as well worked to provide a easy way to be certain that someone else have the same passion similar to my own to understand many more on the topic of this issue. I think there are some more fun moments in the future for many who find out your blog post.

    Hi there,

    I am from the UK and my 6 week old baby boy has been diagnosed with reflux. He was on infant gaviscon which has made him horrifically constipated, which we now give him lactulose for.
    I went back to the doctors today and she has prescribed him ranitidine. He has has 2 doses so far today.

    Is there anything you could suggest for me to give him that is natural?

    His symptoms prior to ranitidine were –

    Screaming from 6pm feed until 1am
    Red in the face
    Bringing knees up to his cheat
    Crying through feeding (he’s exclusively breastfed)
    Spit up after feeding
    Hiccoughs
    Lack of sleep due to being in pain

    He’s not settled during last night, he’s not had more than naps between cries.

    Many thanks

          It seems to me that you did not read and UNDERSTAND the therapy I have prescribed for your baby and also for you.

          I wonder what your reason is for your doing so and you must understand that I have prescribed the same therapy that has helped perhaps over a hundred babies whose mothers were desperate to see their babies suffering after giving them the standard PPI drugs like Nexium and a variety of other drugs all of which contributed to make a bad situation worse.

          I note that you have reordered Nat Phos 6x in tablet form and you also state:
          “I get ordering the wet arnica.

          How often should I take the wet arnica for?”

          This only goes to confirm that you are really not interested in using my therapy and I regret that I cannot add anything more to the very precise instructions I have given you in my prescription, which you are advised to read and UNDERSTAND again.

            Hi Joe,

            Sorry – 1 very sleep deprived lady here.

            Baby is burped during and after feeds.

            Homeopathy is something I am really keen on as I do not like the prescribed drugs from the doctors.

            As I said previously I have re-ordered the Nat Phos 6x in the tablet form which I am waiting on.

            The arnica 30C – take it twice daily.
            I have read your instructions as to how to make up the wet dose in a 500ml bottle of water….. Do I need to drink the full 500ml of water twice a day?

            Also on my homeopathy website there are two potencys of alcohol….. the oral liquid remedy is 25% alcohol and the other is a ‘medicating liquid’ which is 90% alcohol. Which would you recommend?

            Sorry for any confusion.

            Katie

          • Katie says:

            Dear Joe,

            I most apologise for my complete mis reading of your remedy. I’ve been very fraught these last 4 days with a completely distressed baby who’s been in awful pain.

            The arnica 30C arrived today and I have made up the 500ml bottle and will take your recommended dose of a large tablespoon/capful.

            My order of the Nat Phos x6 is still en route from the website.

            If its still ok is like to report on baby’s progression after we’ve used the Nat Phos x6?

              Katie

              I can now understand the reason for your inability to comprehend what I have been prescribing for you so far.

              I can also understand why your baby has not responded to the Nat Phos 6x which has been the salvation of hundreds of babies I have been treating with the same remedy for the last 10 years.
              You have yet to give it to him.

              I wonder why you do not request your husband to get the 2 remedies for you instead of your doing so yourself.

              Do let me know within 6 hours of your giving baby his first dose of NP.
              It usually works like magic!

              You will also take it and it will help reduce your own weight by 1kg per week while your breast milk will also help baby’s digestive process to stabilize. The Arncia is NOT for baby.

          • Katie says:

            Thank you.

            The Nat Phos x6 should be arriving in the post today, I’m hoping anyway (it was ordered 3 days ago).

            Baby hasn’t fed since last night at 9pm which is nearly 12 hours.

            I have had the doses of arnica.

            I will reply when I get the Nat Phos. (Had to get it off the Internet as the health food shops in my town do not sell it)

            • Joe says:

              Katie

              It is unusual for a baby to be without a feed for 12 hours and you might wake her up and try to feed her.

              It seems a pity that you were not able to get the Nat Phos during all this time I was trying to help you.

              This is why I requested you to persuade your husband to get it for you.

          • Katie says:

            Hi joe,

            We were admitted to hospital yesterday as baby couldn’t feed his tummy was hurting him that much. During the 12 hours he didn’t feed he was awake screaming (he’s exhausted now) The hospital have given us omeprazole.

            The Nat Phos arrived yesterday and he had 3 doses, no improvement from previous days. I took the Nat Phos and arnica.

            Thank you for replies

              It is not surprising that baby is so distressed as you have only given him the first 3 doses of Nat Phos 6x.
              I hope the Omeprazole will help him and shall be interested to learn how he responds.

  32. Sarah says:

    Dear Mr De Livera,

    It’s been three days with no ranitidine and using Nat Phos, but unfortunately I have not seen improvements – in fact last night she woke up in pain 3 times.

    I wonder if I am giving her the Nat Phos in the wrong way? The problem is that – especially at night, she falls asleep at the breast. I need to wake her up to give her Nat Phos and then she’ll want to nurse again to fall asleep again.

    I thought nat phos world prevent the vomiting and act as an anti acid.
    Have you had previous experiences with babies not responding to it? Or is it something I may be doing wrong?

    I hate seeing her in pain again.
    Will book a stools analisys test to rule out lactose intolerance or cows milk protein allergy, as well.

    Thanks for your patience,
    Sarah

    • Joe says:

      Sarah

      I am surprised that the Nat Phos 6x has not helped your baby. It usually does so in a few minutes after the first dose in many cases.

      Are you giving her half tablet so far?

      Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose can also add to the effect of the NP.

      Order the Liquid Dilution ASAP and give her 1 teaspoonful twice daily.
      Also order another batch of Nat Phos 6x and specify that you want the Biochemic Cell Salt.

      • Sarah says:

        Thanks a lot, I will follow your suggestions, and keep you posted.

        I have increased the Nat Phos dose to one full tablet after each feed following your advice on the April 13th.

        Sarah

    Dear Joe,

    I don’t know much about homeopathy but heard really good things about it. I’ve been reading you’re site a lot lately about Arnica which is really interesting( I’m not much knowledable about homeopathy). I wanted to know if this form of medicine has any cure for excessive hair growth. I do not have a medical history of vaccinations or any illness or take any medications like that where a remedy can be prescribed based on any symptoms that can stand out, can homeoapthy still help ? Is carcinsosin good because it mentions something about it. ?

    Hi Joe,

    Posting my baby’s case as discussed and will await your response.Thanks!-

    Pregnancy-high blood pressure during pregnancy,high amniotic fluid,waters broke when 38 weeks,4 days.Had nightmares all throughout the pregnancy,loved the smell of chicken although I am a vegetarian,suffered with insomnia and had lots of pain n bleeding every now n then.My health overall has never been good.I have rickets,always had bronchial infections,suffer from Gynae n right sided issues.Have also developed hirsuitism.I am mentioning all this to help my baby’s case.
    Delivery-Contractions ceased 24 hrs after waters broke.Effectively
    induced for contractions 36 hrs after waters broke.Baby was in breech presentation so has emergency c section.His head was stuck in my rib cage so had to be cut extra.Finally doctors managed to pull him out but there was no heartbeat detected for a minute !baby weighed 2.34 kgs.He looks wrinkled with eczema,was born with lots of hair on scalp and allover body.
    He cried n cried all the time and we could never figure out the reason.

    Baby was low on oxygen levels after a week and was being too sleepy.They admitted him and was put on oxygen n antibiotics.All results came out normal n he was also fine after 3 days.He used to cry non stop day n night,had severe colic n silent reflux.tried infacol,gaviscon n ranitidine but Didnt work.Was given homeopathic medicine called aethusa cynapium along with natrum phos and mag phos which worked for a week.Had growth spurt after 3weeks when he felt hungry all the time n wanted too much milk.Couldnt cope with breastfeeding alone so different brands of formula were introduced.Was back to exclusive breast feeding however his silent reflux was back in acute condition.he was given various homeopathic remedies but nothing worked.Eventually silent reflux increased to the level that his milk intake became extremely minimal n then eventually he went on hunger strike for 3 days.Was admitted in emergency n docs figured that he is dairy intolerant.i was asked to stop breastfeeding and he Was given hydrolysed milk by nasal tube.Was also given a domperidone n ranitidine which is supposed to be continued until he is settled.I have stopped these medications last week as his whole face was covered in rashes n skin was peeling badly!nutramigen is hydrolysed protein milk(has high levels of msg which is neurotoxin)! He cries all the time,Hates having milk n we trick feed him by rocking him to sleep everytime.His chest rattles a lot after the feed n in general.He also brings these black musturd seed like stones in his urine every now n then!-so far he has brought some 8-9 stones in his nappies!They look like black musturd seeds.His blood calcium levels keep coming put to be high.He is 6 months old now and has been exposed to high levels of radiation(ct scans n X-rays ),general anaesthesia and 4 courses of antibiotics.He can’t support his neck properly,has lots of tension in his spine and sleeps on his back.He strikes his head from one side to another before sleeping and only sleeps from 9-4 during the day with frequent shrieks in between.He gets more n more hyperactive as the evening progresses.His keeps kicking his legs vigorously and keeps beating himself with his arms at side.he also breathes very heavily as if there is a hurry(hyper excited).His head gets hot in the evening.He scratches his face to the extent that it bleeds at night,he keeps tossing over when lying down n keeps putting his hand on his right part of the head while crying at night.His brain scan reveals that he has subdural effusions on both sides (4-5) mm in depth and there is mild expansion of sub arachnoid spaces.Docs think that it might be hematoma from birth and looks chronic.With every course of vaccines he has become more unsettled.When I hold him,he kicks hard,arches and gets stiff.He enjoys having wind blown on his face and a bit of music.He also enjoys having his legs massaged.He has very large eyes,long eyelashes,always underweight but too tall for his age!

    He also has hypospadias,breathes heavily during the feed and coughs in between sometimes.His chest rattles all the time.He was born with lycopodium constitution as he used to be cold n over wrapped all the time,used to nurse all the time,vomited mostly from his nose,suffered from silent reflux as well as colic and aggravated from 4-8 pmand 12-4am.He is still colicky n has silent reflux but now looks like a clear cut tuberculinum constitution.He cries non stop whole night,and his hot head sweats at times during night.His eczema and cradle cap seem to be permanent.his appetite is very poor and won’t have milk unless he is sleeping and unaware of what he is doing while sucking nowadays.He rubs his eyes when sleepy and hates having bath.He is never constipated and his poop is always runny.His eye contact is poor

    Remedies he has had so far-
    Aethusa cynapium in 30c-helped him when he was 1.5 months old
    Carbo veg in 30c-had for three days,his irritability reduced while taking the dose but insomnia intensified and that’s when he started his hunger strike!
    Nux vomica 30c -after general anaesthesia,he slept whole night after taking just a pill.He also had a dose last month when he mostly slept continuously for 2 days and looked better
    Lycopodium200c-he slept almost for 3 days on a stretch n started having milk normally but started getting cranky on third day!was given another dry dose on third day which ruined the case!
    Was repeated in wet dose in 202 c after a month when his appetite improved but he started getting chills and also started shaking his head from side to side!
    Phosphorus 200 c-did nothing,Infact he got a bit more unsettled
    Chamomilla-worked initially but stopped working in 200c
    Pulsatilla-he didn’t respond well on it
    and started proving.
    Calcarea carb 200 c- started becoming easier to rock him to sleep but appetite became poorer!
    Belladonna 200c-tossing and headache stopped but his cheeks became red and he started proving!
    Thuja30c-looked more relaxed and slept more relatively.

    He looks relatively happier while taking natrum phos+ kali phos+ calc phos and starts putting on weight too

    I am sick of giving him remedies randomly on the suggestions of homeopaths who are not very sure of what they are doing.He is getting more and more irritable day by day and is showing clear signs of infantile wasting!i really want to start cease therapy before its too late.I would like to know the consultation procedure involved if you are willing? I am based in UK and travelling to India next week for two weeks.I have only been to hospitals since my baby’s birth so this is the first time I am going to be out on such a big travel.Aim to get some positive spiritual energy around him in India.i have tuberculinum in 1m potency with me as suggested by a homeopath but havnt given him a dose yet!

      Shwital

      I am concerned about your travelling to India right now with baby and would urge you to postpone your trip till he is in a condition to take more stress in travel.

      He suffers from Baby GERD and Eczema among other problems and I shall copy my default therapy for both ailments below.

      Baby GERD

      It is very likely that your baby suffers from Gastric Reflux aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease)

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

      Nat Phos 6x dose half tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

      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.

      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 this remedy will also 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 .

      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.

      THERAPY FOR ECZEMA FOR ADULTS

      I shall copy below my default therapy for Eczema which has helped the lesions of many chronic cases to dry up in a few days.

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

      Order the remedy in the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

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

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

      Please report your response on the third day.

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

      I have never treated a baby with Eczema and as long as you are certain that he suffers from this condition which you will rely on the diagnosis by doctors of his condition you may use the above therapy.

      YOU WILL REDUCE THE DOSAGE TO HALF TEASPOONFUL TWICE DAILY FOR ORAL USE BUT APPLY THE REMEDY FREELY ON HIS SKIN AND REPORT HIS RESPONSE IN 3 DAYS.

  35. Mom in pain says:

    Hi Joe,

    I am not breastfeeding my baby anymore as he suffers from multiple allergies and can’t tolerate my milk.I went off dairy for two weeks and tried to feed him with expressed breastmilk but he couldn’t tolerate that too.He had been having Natrum phos tissue salt off and on since past 5 months however it doesn’t seem to help him.His eczema and multiple food allergies are related to his brain malfunction as I have been told by the doctors.The subdural effusion in his brain is chronic and of protienaceous material-docs here are unsure that whether its blood or something else.I have list my battle with husband regarding his India trip plus his grandparents can’t wait anymore.His grand-dados a doctor and prefers to have him checked by other doctors in Delhi.I will give him wet arnica doses as stated and will report soon

    Thanks and regards

    • Joe says:

      Mom

      I note that you have no option but to go to Delhi so that he can be checked by his grandad and other doctors.

      Let us start baby on Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily to observe if it can help to diffuse the blockage: “subdural effusion in his brain is chronic and of protienaceous material-docs here are unsure that whether its blood or something else”.

      Also increase the Nat Phos 6x to a full tablet after each feed and report his response.

      Get Nux Vomica 30c in the Liquid Dilution but do not use it till we discuss this further.

      Apply the Arnica directly on his Eczema lesions and observe if it helps to dry the skin.

  36. Mom in pain says:

    I would also like to add that his appetite is diminishing day by day and the formula he is taking at the moment is hydrolysed protein( pre digested made of amino acids).This milk has high levels of msg but he starts arching and crying on any other form of milk

  37. Mom in pain says:

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks and will start him on remedies as stated.

    P.S-Ihave already given him 2 doses of nux vomica as stated in my first post.

Doctor did my endoscopy and said that these all problem are because of acid reflux.now i am taking homeopathy medicine but i really don’t know what my doctor is giving me.i am so much in stress because of this problem..please help me out

    • Joe says:

      Aafreen

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

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

      The remedies you will order are as follows:

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

      Please observe the following simple rules:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      Your remedy is Polyporous Pinicola 200 in the Wet dose taken twice daily and made as follows:

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

      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.

      You have used my therapy for the last 5 days but you do not seem to have taken the Arnica 30 I prescribed.

      You have also NOT confirmed what your response is to my therapy.

      State precisely what you have used so far and if your reflux has been helped.

      I can see that you are not prepared to follow my guidelines to cure yourself with my therapy which has helped thousands of patients who suffer from GERD.

      You have only used Nat Phos 6x for a 5 days WITHOUT the Arnica and you now wish to take Mag Phos which I did NOT prescribe.

      You can continue with your own therapy and I will not waste any more time on you.

    Hi Joe,

    I saw your posts on abc forum and I was wondering if I follow your arnica therapy for androgenic alopecia. How long in general should this take. I already have some hair but its shrunk. I live in Oregon Usa.

    Thanks Joe and God Speed

    • Joe says:

      Guru Nathali

      I presume that you have already read my therapy on the ABC for Hair Loss but I shall copy it below.

      The following remedies will help to arrest the loss of hair and will also help to regrow the hair in about 2 months.

      Arnica Q or Mother Tincture 5ml bottle
      Arnica 30c in the Liquid Dilution in Ethanol
      2 500ml bottles of Spring water sold in supermarkets.
      Any good Fish Liver Oil in capsule form.

      Method:

      Pour out about 100ml of water from each bottle.

      Pour in 20 drops of Arnica Q into the water in a bottle and you should notice that the water bubbles freely when the bottle is shaken about.

      Half a teaspoonful of this medicated water is to be applied on the scalp twice daily.
      Please note that this water remedy with Arnica Q is NOT for oral use. It is only for massaging into the roots of the hair.

      Arnica 30c for Oral use

      Make the Wet dose of Arnica 30 as follows:

      Order Arnica 30c in a 5ml in the Liquid Dilution in Ethanol in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you take a capfull which is a dose twice daily. This is best taken first thing in the morning and last thing before bed.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

      Take a capsule of the Fish Liver Oil daily.

      Use Johnsons Baby Shampoo daily for your shower which will help to wash away the perspiration from the scalp which causes the bacteria that are responsible for your Dandruff to propagate.

      Avoid Coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham and bacon, and all canned cola beverages as they antidote the therapy.

      It is understood that you will STOP all other remedies and drugs you are taking today.

      Drink plenty of water and exercise daily for at least 45 minutes like walking or jogging depending on your age. The idea is to sweat it out. This is essential to promote the circulation of blood in the body which Arnica will help to promote.

      Patients who suffered from severe hair loss who were losing over 200 hairs daily have confirmed that they discovered in about a week that the loss of their hair had been arrested. They also noticed that the new growth was plainly visible above their scalp when their hair was parted in about 6 weeks.

      Report progress in a month

    Thank you

    • Joe says:

      Poonam

      I cannot help you with your ESR level. You will consult a doctor and ascertain the reason why it is high.

      I shall treat you for Arthritis and copy my default therapy below.

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

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

      The 2 remedies are:

      Argentum Metallicum 6c
      Arnica 30c

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

      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.

    Joe,
    First of all I want to thank you as after using your wet dose of arnica 30 my father recovered from a traumatic leg injury which was not healing on its own despite the best efforts of the doctors.
    I also have a request, I read your article about haemophilia. A cousin of mine is Also suffering from since childhood from the same disease. In your article you have mentioned arnica 6x wet dose. Does this has to be taken regularly or only when he gets bruised/cut. In any other advise if you can impart will be most beneficial.
    Thank you

    • Joe says:

      Mukul

      Glad to note that my therapy has helped your father to overcome his “Traumatic leg injury”.

      I do not have any record of his injury and would like to have details for my records.

      Answering your question about Hemophilia, it is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose that the patient must take twice daily for the rest of his life. Not 6x.
      Arnica 6c will ensure that any internal bleeding that can result from an accident will be diffused and will not remain on the injured limb causing severe distress.

      The patient must also have Lachesis 200 in the Wet dose available for immediate use in the event of any cut which will invariably result in excessive bleeding which in the case of a Hemophiliac cannot be stopped.
      A dose of about 5ml Lachesis 200 taken evey hour will STOP this bleeding, usually within about 20 minutes. This remedy should NOT be taken on a daily basis.

      Please do a search for Hemophilia on my Home page and read the 3 articles that I have posted on my experience in the treatment of this problem which information is not generally known and certainly NOT accepted by the medical profession as they prefer to use Hemophil which is a very expensive drug used intravenously and can cost over $200 per patient.

  51. mukul says:

    Thanks for your detailed reply. My father met with an car accident and was operated on his leg as the ankle shattered in the collision. A metallic plate and screw was implanted in to his leg. But even after a year the swelling from the operation was not reducing and only increasing.
    Making walking and wearing sandals an ordeal. Doctors said it may remain for another year. So after going through your articles I prepared a arnica 30 wet dose and gave him twice a day.within a week the swelling has reduced by almost 70percent. Plus he also smokes a lot so ithought even that will decrease but that is YET to happen. But I am sure it will.
    Thanks

    • Joe says:

      Mukul

      Thank you for the information where you confirmed that my therapy aka “Joepathy” worked when drugs did not. You did state that he is only 70% cured. Can you send me a photograph of his ankle to enable me to see if I can improve the cure?

      I have helped smokers to QUIT with

      Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

      Give it to your father and also read the accounts of patients whom I have helped to QUIT their smoking habit.

      Joepathy for the treatment of ailments affecting the Prostate including:

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

      Your remedies are:

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Hello Joe,
    I have been following your advice since our last contact on April 7th.
    1. For my Diabetes I have been the ethanol dose of Arnica 3 C twice a day.
    2. For my Sciatica I am taking the Arnica 3 C twice daily.
    3. For my non-alcohol liver disease, I am taking Arsenicum Alb. 200 C twice daily.

    Of course there is no way for me to determine how my liver is doing since my appointments with my doctor are only about 3 times a year.
    However, as far as my Diabetes……….I have seen no results so far.
    And as far as my Sciatica pain, I have seen no results so far.

    Do you have any advice for me, Sir ? Thank you.

    Dear Dr. De Livera,

    As I am unable to find the suggested product in my locality, in Elssas, planned to order them from London Anisworths pharmcy [found the link in one of your post]….but you have to help me here to decide. The Arnica 1M is available on their site …in 33% and 96% alcohol…Centesimal/ Decimal etc….a little confusing, which one to be ordered ? And Gelsemium…is it the same as Gelsemium Sempervirens ? Would be great if you could suggest the remedy to be chosen.
    Thanking you for your help in advance.

    • Joe says:

      Deepankar

      Order the remedies in the 96% Alcohol.
      Arnica 1M is the Millesimal potency or 100 to the power 1000. Ainsworths will know if you order the 1M potency.
      Gelsemium is Semper Virens but is listed as Gels

    Hello Joe,
    I emailed you on the 23rd and have gotten no response from you. I’m not trying to rush you, Joe. I just don’t want you to forget me ! Since I am so new to emailing you, I don’t ” know the rules ” yet, so please don’t get irritated with my clumsiness ( did I spell that right ? )
    Then again, you MAY be beating your head against the wall………as you wonder what to DO with me !
    Take care,

      I can see that you are not able to follow my therapy precisely as prescribed.
      You have MIXED UP my prescriptions and I fear that HARM CAN RESULT

      I regret to inform you that I cannot treat you.

  61. Carol Cole says:

    Hello Joe,
    You are exactly correct ! The only thing is……….IIIIIII mis-spoke ! Let me go through what I am doing once again, so we can get this straight. And forgive me, please, for not being right on the mark ! Okay:
    1. For my Diabetes I am taking – Arnica 6C ( twice daily- wet dose ).
    2. For my Diabetes I am also taking Mag. Phos? ( 2 tabs. 3 x per day ).
    3. For my Sciatica I am taking that same Arnica-6C.

    Now………for my liver disease ( non-alcohol related ), on your advice to someone ELSE, I started taking the Arsenicum Alb. 200 C – 2 x per day.

    If I have done wrong by taking the Arsenicum………..what do you suggest…………or do you not wish to treat my liver, and maybe I was taking too much for granted by taking something you had suggested to someone else ?

    ( Again, I am sorry about my dosage statements on the Arnica. )

    Thank you, Joe.

    Dear Dr. joe,
    I just received two of the prescriptions given by you which are
    1) polyporous pinicola 200
    2) arnica 30
    Both in liquid dilution.
    The other two medicines
    Nat phos 6 x tablets and
    Argentum Metallicum 6c
    I have ordered and I will get them in one week.
    Shall I start the medicines I have received or wait till I get all medicines?
    How should I take these medicines?
    Kindly let me know in what order should I take them. Your advice is eagerly awAited.

    • Joe says:

      Sharvari vaidya

      The remedies that I have prescribed for your relapsed CKG has nothing to do with your suspected Osteo Arthritis for which I prescribed Arg Met 6c. You MUST start on the Poly Pin 200 immediately.

      You are fortunate that you were able to get the Poly Pin 200 which many patients have informed me is not usually stocked by pharmacies.

      I presume that you got it from Zorastrian Pharmacy who manufacture it. If so, I cannot understand why they did not also supply the Arg Met 6c and Nat Phos which they also manufacture.

  63. Deepankar says:

    Hello Dr. De Livera,

    I am awaiting your suggestion / advice to order the prescribed remadies.

    Thanks in advance.

  64. Sharvari vaidya says:

    Dear sir,
    I have started with poly pin 200 just now as advised by you. How many times the dose is to be repeated in a day? And for how many days?
    Actually I got the remedies by courier through one of my relatives staying nearby and hence do not have clear idea why she got just two of the remedies.
    Thank you so much for your immediate response sir.
    Regards,

    • Joe says:

      Sharvari vaidya

      You can take a dose thrice daily for as long as your feel that it is helping you.

      If you do NOT discover any relief after the third day your problem needs to be investigated in depth as it can be due to some other cause

  65. Deepankar says:

    Dear Dr. De Livera….

    Sorry, I overlooked your reply. Thanks.

  66. Carol Cole says:

    Hi Joe,
    Once again, I need to correct myself. Over the years I have gathered lots of remedies, an I often get ahead of myself !
    1. For my Diabetes, you said for me to take the ethanol dose of Arnica 3C; twice a day.
    I am taking this.
    2. ALSO, for my Diabetes, you said to take Mag. Phos.;6 X……….2 tabs,
    Three times a day.
    I am taking this.
    3. You said that I could try taking that SAME Arnica for my Sciatica, too.
    As I stated above, I am already taking this.
    4. As I said earlier………..no results so far.

    5. And then, there is the matter of my non-alcohol liver disease. And I told you that I had read in one of your statements to another patient, to
    Try the Arsenicum 200 C.

    Okay……….” Go to it ! Straighten me out. “. I AM willing, Joe. I just need that hand to guide me ( and SHOVE me, now and then. )

    Thanks !

    Dear Dr. Joe:I am medical doctor, 65 years old, pediatrician.

    Since 2006 I have multiple myeloma ,done: quemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation.
    Please may you help me for some homeopathic medicines for this disease? The Dr. Banerji protocols dont have any information.
    Grateful. GIL C. RIBAS MD.
    BRAZIL

    • Joe says:

      Dr Gil C Ribas

      Welcome to my website.

      I note that you are a Pediatrician, 65 years of age who is also qualified in Homeopathy. You may like to know that I am 84 years of age and am not qualified in Homeopathy although I have studied this science since 1965 and have developed my own therapy aka “Joepathy” where I treat the disease and do not follow the standard diktat of Hahnemann to “Treat the Symptoms of the patient with one remedy”. I am not a professional Homeopath and treat all patients free of charge. I am the CEO of a very old family owned business organization which I operate with my youngest son 40 years of age and to which I drive daily as I have done for the last 65 years.

      I established my website 3 years ago as I felt that it can help people like you, living in Brazil who can access my website and be in a position to contact me from the far corners of this Earth, even though you present a very rare disease for which modern medicine does not have any cure.

      I have never treated Multiple Myeloma, which quite frankly I did not know about till I read your post and looked it up on the web. It is in many ways a close parallel to CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) which I have treated in a 63 year old man who is the CEO of a very large business organisation and who is now a close friend of mine and living in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where I too live.

      He presented his case to me last December as he was always feeling very tired which was affecting his work. He had been diagnosed with CLL some years ago and his consultants had prescribed a plethora of drugs which he stated were not of any avail and which he stopped as he felt that they were not doing him any good.

      His WBC count was 38000 in December and I am happy to state that it is now 18000 as reported by him a few days ago. This count has been progressively dropping from 38000 and I believe that he can now be considered as recovering from his disease. He is back on his standard exercise regimen daily and he informed me that he was not feeling tired as he did some months ago.

      The therapy aka “Joepathy” that I gave him was:

      Nat Phos 3x dose 3 tablets taken thrice daily
      Kali Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken thrice daily.
      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken thrice daily.

      I note that you have contacted Dr Prasanta Banerji who you stated did not have any protocol for treating your disease. I would like to inform him some time in the future that I have successfully treated one patient with my Joepathy for this disease which has shown some promise.

      It is my hope and prayer that you too can benefit from my therapy and I shall be glad if you will please keep me posted with your own WBC levels which you have not quoted in your post and what drugs you have been prescribed so far.

      My prayers are with you.

  68. Gigi says:

    My 4 year old son has had very bad constipation for a few years now with which I have tried so many different natural remedies to try and cure him. None worked so the doctor put him on medicine for it, but I would like him to not have to be on this medicine and was wondering if you could tell me what what I may do to help him? He also, I think, suffers from GERD because he is throwing up in his mouth allot threw out the day but doesn’t complain about it hurting or anything. Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      Gigi

      Nat Phos 6x should help him.
      Dose 2 tablets after each of 2 meals daily.

      Report his response in 48 hours.
      You may also get Arnica 30c in the Liquid Dilution which I shall instruct you to use if necessary.
      Do not however give it to him till I instruct you.

      • Gigi says:

        I will have to go to my local health food store and see if I can find these. If not I will have to look online and order them but I will report his response back to you as soon as he has taken it for 48 hours. Should I stop his medicine while he takes it? Thank you!

      • Gigi says:

        He is still throwing up in his mouth threw out the day. He has pooped with out his medicine though which makes me very glad. Should I put him on the Arnica 30c? Thank you.

        • Joe says:

          Gigi

          Yes you may start him off on the Arnica 30cin the Wet dose taken twice daily and you will report his response in 48 hours.

          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.

    Hey Joe,

    I was wondering if you know how to get rid of headache from eyestrain. Strange thing is , is that I’ve tried ruta, jaborandi and argenticum nitricum and none work in 30c only one dose . Do you think it needs to be repeated or taken in 200 c. Other remedies in boerickes reperatory that I haven’t tried are phosphoricum acid, cimicifuga, tub, onosmodium, nat mur and gelsemium . The cause is too much computer work . The symptoms are have to close eyes if look at close things bec will get pain at back of eye and temples( this is the headache I’m having ie only in temple and behind eye ) , feel to look at far objects bec of this and feel to close eyes if look at something close . I don’t know what to do but sometimes i can’t study bec my eyes hurt too much . Please help joe thanks .

    • Joe says:

      Jennifer Alimos

      If as I presume, your Mirgaine is triggered by exposure to the bright screen of your computer , you can start by dimming it as much as is possible.

      Also use sun glasses when exposed to sunlight

      Gloininum 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily will also help.

    Dear sir,
    I started the remedy polyporous pinicola immediately and now after three days I find that the pain in my wrists, fingers and ankles have reduced. Also the shoulders are better. Only sciatica and heel pain have not changed. But I have started taking walk of 30 minutes for last two days.

    I also have got all other three remedies with me now prescribed by you.

    Nat Phos 6x 500gm Tablets
    Arnica 30c Liquid Dilution.
    Argentum Metallicum 6c

    Shall I start the above medicines also now? How to take these and in which order. Can i make the preparations in same bottle or use separate bottles? Please advise.
    Thanks and regards.

    • Joe says:

      Sharvari vaidya

      Glad to note that my diagnosis was correct and that the pain you were suffering from has reduced. This proves again that Chikungunya (CKG) relapses from time to time. I have treated over 6 patients like you who were suffering from a relapse
      and one whom I cured of CKG in 2008 had a relapse about a year ago and was in hospital for 5 days undergoing all the tests to diagnose the reason for her complete collapse as she was unable to get out of her bed. I remembered treating her and after just 2 doses of the remedy, she was back on her feet.

      It would be of interest to me to know how long ago you suffered from CKG and if you have had similar relapses in the past. I would also like to have details of your treatment for CKG when you suffered from it some years ago.

      You will please read my previous posts when I prescribed for you and follow my instructions.

      I do not have details of your current problems right now but do remember that you were overweight and the Nat Phos will help to reduce weight by 1kg per week.

      Report your response from time to time.

    Dear sir,
    I suffered from chicunguniya on 18th July 2012. I was on treatment from my family doctor and gave me injections for five days after that was on medicines from the doctor the details of which I do not have. But I was almost bedridden for two months. I was totally home bound till November
    2012. I had severe body pain and took painkillers almost daily. The joints of my fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knee and ankle were struck badly. From January-13 sciatic pain and heel pain started. Around this time I found that I had hypothyroid with ths level 7. I has continuous hair fall.
    I have started with the Nat phos tablets just today. Should I start Arnica and Argentum Metallicum now with poly pin?

    Sharvari Vaidya.

  75. dev says:

    Dear Dr. Joe,

    As advised I have today received the medicines for GERD. And I have taken my first does of nat phos 6x just after lunch. Will keep you updated on my progress after a few days. I have got arnica mont 30c also and I will take that in the night the way you have prescribed, 3 drops in 500 ml water and then take 1 tsp.

    Since you have mentioned that arnica 30c is very good, can the rest of my family take 1 tsp of the remaining solution everyday.

    One more thing, I had a troubled past, with family violence, suppressed anger and helplessness. For quite some time (more than 3 years to be precise) I have noticed that I do not enjoy talking to people and it quite clear on my face and people also notice it, I feel as if my eyes are shrinking, with lips trembling and as if I am making wired faces while talking and am very nervous. Public speaking is a nightmare for me.

    I have ordered kali phos 6x and argentim nit 30 for this purpose. Are these two ok for such symptoms. And also can all the homeo medicines can be taken together or is it one remedy at one time. Is the argentim nit 30 which is in liquid form can be taken the way arnica is taken in liquid form.

    Grateful for your kind response

    Regards

      You will continue to take the 2 remedies I have prescribed for some time in the future till you feel that you can do without them.

      I regret that I cannot treat your mental problems. It is possible that the Arnica may help in this regard. I would not advise you to use the other remedies you have listed till your GERD problems are stabilized as it is not impossible that my therapy may clash with yours.

      Please feel free to give Arnica to anyone whom you feel can benefit from it as it is absolutely safe and I have taken it in this manner for the last 17 years nightly.

  76. dev says:

    Dear Dr Joe,

    It is now third day while taking Nat Phs 6X and Arnica. I find some relief from GERD symptoms however discomfort is still there. How long does it take to get complete relief after taking nat phos and arnica.

    Also after taking one tbs arnica, whether the rest should be thrown or can be used next time also.

  77. Gigi says:

    Where can I find Arnica 30c in the Liquid Dilution? All I see everywhere is it sold in tablet or pill form. I started my 4 year old son on the Nat Phs 6X as per your suggestion. It’s only been 24 hours so I will wait till tomorrow to tell you how he is responding to it. I have taken him off of the medicine he was on for being constipated as well.
