Pellets are either almost all sucrose or all sucrose. Tablets are lactose.

I got one of the homeopathy kits that Pat mentioned earlier for my birthday. It has been a lot of fun learning about acute homeopathy and experiencing successes and sometimes no apparent physical responses. It is really amazing.

I struggle with repeat UTIs that responds well to andrographis. This time I decided to try homeopathy, partially because it is a lot cheaper than my Standard Process pills, and tastes a lot better.

I see great improvements for about a day and then it comes back. I am guessing that I maybe need to do more repeat doses before I start feeling it?

I also should add that my UTIs are really a chronic issue (always brought on by sugar consumption, or sometimes DTD). I know I should get a remedy. I am feeling ready for one, but again am dragging my feet.

I have the book Practical Homeopathy, and am enjoying it.

My 3 year old is having a lot of throat pain. We are not at home, so I don't have any of my comfort measures except for my homeopathy kit. At night he wakes up sounding phlemy and croupy - his cough is productive but tight. A few days ago, I had my kit open and he pulled out a vial and low and behold it was hepat sulph. I gave him some them and then gave him some last night and saw results.
Today my pendulum guided me to phytolacca. I'm not seeing results. He's really drooly because he doesn't like to swallow, no fever and an ok mood. His voice sound funny because his throat is swollen. I don't have my homeopathy book. And none of my regular herbal, nutrient help.

Any suggestions?

If you saw results from the Hepar sulph, go back to it. Don't leave a remedy until it stops working. Post an update if/when you give it! Hope he feels better soon!

What potency are you using? If this is a chronic issue, you will likely need a high potency.
post #26 of 864
I was thinking about that. I only have 30c at the moment but will order 200c. Is that the next one, or is there more inbetween?
I wanted to get some cell salts for my sons' teeth anyway so I can get everything at once.
Thank you barefootmama for both of your responses. It means a lot.
post #27 of 864
There are other potencies available, but it is most common to go from 30 to 200. You shouldn't have to take the 200 nearly as often.

Good luck!

went back to using the first remedy last night before bed, and once again when he woke up around 11. He is MUCH better this morning. His voice sounds almost better, no drooling, reduced crankiness (although that wasn't too bad), more comfort with eating. He's not 100 percent. I gave him more this morning, and I think I will stop now and wait and see. What a strong example of the right remedy working.

Yesterday evening I had to run and catch him in the street because a car was coming. I hurt the arch of my foot. I took arnica right away and it didn't help. Last night was really hard walking. This morning was very difficult. I took rhus toxicodendron. I'm already feeling much better. Quite amazing. I think I will be able to go on our nature walk.

Powerful indeed! I hurt my foot maybe a year or two ago. I couldn't walk on it. When I touched it I could tell it was an issue with connective tissue so I alternated ruta and arnica. It was 100% better witihin a day. After some time I backed off because I had no more discomfort. Well, the pain came RIGHT back! SO I started back on again and it wasn't too long before I was 100%. Acute treatments can be absolutely amazing.

Last week I spoke to a friend who is no stranger to homeopathy. She had what she thought was possibly the flu that's been hyped in the media. She was nauseated and in extreme pain as well as being too weak to sit up on her own. That would be more tolerable if she didn't have 3 kiddos to deal with! She literally couldn't get out of bed. She described what was happening and I had her take pulsatilla 30C. Within an hour she was up and taking a shower. She needed a few more doses but it did clear it 100%. It is NOT her constitutional remedy, but a good acute treatment.

Also, it bears mentioning that what you look for in terms of improvement first is a better emotional state. I treated a nasty case of poison ivy a few weeks ago. I gave rhus tox as it was a great fit. I got a call the next morning from the person saying the rash was getting worse and that it wasn't working. I asked how she felt (previously she couldn't sleep because she was literally tearing through her skin) and she paused. She said it didn't itch anymore but now rash was spreading and oozing pus. I told her that she was improving-does it really matter if the rash spreads as the body is pushing it out if it no longer itches? Within a day it was notably better and the itching never returned. Pretty neat stuff. I did also support with flower essences which I do think makes a difference.

I want to learn more about this too With both pregnancies I had hyperemesis that I took a class C medication for. During the 2nd pregnancy I saw a homeopath and was able to completely get off medication and eat just fine. I've used a few remedies at home from the HFS with some success, but I'm drooling over the kits Pat posted.

I have a kit that has 50 remedies and I love it. It has been one of my best purchases this year.

Late this afternoon (or maybe around 2)my son started getting drooly again and a bit cranky.I put off giving him more remedy. His coughing got stronger. I finly gave him some around 7. He is sounding better.

I've alternated between two remedies (arnica and another one I posted previously) throughout the day. I now have almost full range of motion and just a little tenderness, when after a long walk and playing on the beach with my boys. I've injured my foot before in the same manner. (ive struggled with plantar fascitis). Last night I predicted around two months of healing. 24 hours later almost totally better.

Perfect Repeat when symptoms return.

Great job with these prescriptions!

I have many kits from different companies and the Washington Homeopathics kits are my favorite. By far.

Question about rhus tox/poison ivy. My DH is highly sensitive to poison ivy, and I really want to use homeopathy next time he gets it, to prove that it works. I think he believes it works, as he's witnessed it with DD, but I know there is still some doubt in the back of his mind. Last weekend he was pulling some bushes out of the yard and he pulled some poison ivy out also. He was dressed in long pants and long sleeves and took the clothes off asap, but he felt a little patch coming on around his eyebrow, maybe from wiping sweat off. He showered and it never materialized. But, I was reading my book in the meantime, preparing to give rhus tox, and I have a 30C kit. Then I read that if one already has a rash you should not give rhus tox in a dose higher than 6C as a higher potency will cause the rash to spread like wildfire, whereas 6C should contain the rash. So I was going to buy 6C to have on hand. PB do you agree with that/has that been your experience? The last thing I want to do give him the wrong remedy/potency and have everything get worse!

I've never heard of Rhus tox causing a poison ivy rash to spread like that, nor seen it happen. Waiting until the rash and other symptoms actually appear is best though, otherwise it's just a shot in the dark as you can't match the symptoms to the remedy picture.

This. Poison ivy doesn't always equal rhus tox. If the symptoms fit, then it's a great bet though! The case I was talking about I used a 30C and the rash was horrific. We are talking arms, belly , legs, head and face. As I said she was concerned it was spreading (and it began pussing something fierce) but it no longer itched. So while it looked gross she felt great.

I am looking for information regarding cell salts for tooth decay.

Whenever I look into my boys' mouths I feel panicked. I just keep on focusing on other health issues, ignoring this one. I am ready to try the cell salts and see if they help. I also just bought Cure Tooth Decay book. I just don't want to put any chemicals into their mouths, so I need to get this fixed.

thanks.

I am also going to start searching here for info, but was having a tough time making the search function work.
post #39 of 864
What kind of info do you want? The salts you want are usually calc fluor, calc phos, and silica. There are great books on them too....
post #40 of 864
ooooh I would like a book(s) name.


I remember your previous posts, so unless you want to describe anything, you don't need to take the time.
I was really looking for the names.

Oh, do you really think the salts could be a significant part of tooth healing?
