I would only personally give it if he was in pain. If he is, have at it. Arnica isn't necessarily going to do a whole lot for scarring IME. What I would do (again....this is me) is use a calendula wash on the site and once it's starting to scab use tamanu oil to reduce scarring. I'd also make certain he was getting adequate zinc and vitamin E in his diet for cellular repair and regeneration.

Hi all,
Would hypnosis or deep relaxation states interfere with taking a homeopathic remedy?

I am doing a HypnoBirthing training right now and on the first day we did intro to hypnosis, and we just did these like really deep relaxation exercises, and I got very deeply into a meditative state, when suddenly I had this fear that doing that would interfere with my constitutional. Because it's like all energy work.

I just started my constitutional about a month ago and it has had some really positive effects.
post #83 of 864
My answer would be no way. If anything it would benefit it. Or conversely, maybe you were able to go there because of it! But no, in my opinion there is no way it would interfere.

Phew! I don't know why but for some reason I started to panic about that. I actually go into that state fairly easily, and during one of the exercises I was already feeling fairly deep into it, and she started saying something like, "now I am going to start counting down and you will go deeper and deeper" and I suddenly had that worry, and I thought, whoa, I am already fairly deep into it. So, great! Now I can go back tomorrow and not worry about it. Thank you!

Thanks PB - he isn't in any pain so I won't give it to him again. I"ll follow your other suggestions.

Yes, they use sucrose/lactose but I was assured there is not enough to cause a spike in the blood [a high] or to cause cavities, those were my 2 biggest issues. But just to be on the safe side, I spray Xylitol in my dd and ds's mouths 15 minutes before or after [sometimes I do both] taking a remedy.

The Xylitol inhibits any acids from sticking to their teeth and inhibits any spike in their blood.

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.

We, my mom and I, have been using cell salts for about 30 mos for teeth issue with my DS. We're using 6X now but started out with 30X. My son had severe ECC and his ped dentist was looking to do $3400 worth of work in his mouth.

Fortunately for my son, there was about a year wait for an operating room in our local hospital to become available to do the surgery, so my mom started researching on the web what we could do while waiting.

She visited http://www.elixirs.com/study.cfm and got lots of ideas, plus she bought a book titled Your Vital Child by Mark & Angela Stengler. On pages 222-224 they talk about cavities. In particular on p.224 they recommend Kreosotum 30C - for teeth that are crumbling and/or decay easily. Give 2 pellets twice daily for 1 month.

We did as recommended and the crumbling stopped.

Then we began using the cell salts used for bone and teeth health:

Calcerea Phos 30X
Calcerea Fluor 30X
Nat Phos 30X
Silica 30X

We used this dosage for a year 3 times daily. We, or my mom was told by a homeopath that this dosage would not harm my son. It didn't. At the end of the year we cut the dosage down to 6X, and he is still on that now only once a day.

Only we've added Mag phos 6X.

We also used then, and continue to use Xylitol. We make toothpaste [twice daily he uses it], and a rinse [2 to 3 times daily]. We buy Emerald Forest Xylitol candies [they have purple -Grape- and brown - Licorice, my son loves them]; and gum. We also use Xylitol spray and tooth wipes and his decay has been arrested; all the 16 or so cavities have remineralised.

We did have one tooth extracted [he fell braking the root, it developed an abscess we could not get rid of] and 1 tooth filled [it had been a large cavity and though it had been stopped, he kept getting food into it, so...]. But at the age of 4 he is cavity free, his teeth are strong and healthy!!

You can do it too...

Just read this thread. Great discussion! I've learned a lot.

A little background and some questions.

Our family MD also does homeopathy (and some other stuff, anthroposophical medicine for one) We've been patients in the practice since before I was pg with my first dd. Some remedies are hits and others are misses. Thats ok. I don't usually go back right away for the misses. The big issue we are dealing with though is my and my DD's ADHD (also anxiety and other issues for her) We've been attempting to deal with DD's issues for a few years now (she is 5). He almost always gives high potencies (200c and 1m together) with instructions to stir in water and sip over several hours. DD's got a high potency about a month ago that seemed to make her worse, more anxious. Then we tried a different one just a few days ago and she is much, much worse. She is very independent natured and was insisting that I tell her each color to use while coloring (for example) And today at the dentist she was very nervous and anxious. She loves her dentist and usually talks about the visits in between them and asks when she gets to go back again. I asked our Dr on Friday when I had my other DD in for an issue and he was confident that her bad reaction would be followed by a good reaction (like a pendulum swing) and said that we just need to ride it out and see what comes. None of you here have mentioned a bad reaction followed by a good one. I wish I could find a local classical homeopath. I really think that might make a big difference for her but there aren't any in my city.

Another question. My old Chiro that I love likes to use combo hopeopathic remedies. I know our Dr does not like those. Any thoughts on them?

Can homeopathy work on food sensitivities? I've been thinking about giving my dd's sulphur because their sulphication seems to not be working and it is causing them to have issues with phenols. Actually my 1 year old was just put on low potency sulphur for her diaper rash.

Is there any reason to not use homeopathics for an acute condition while also using them more like a constitutional? In other words, should I avoid other homeopathics right now while I let this latest remedy play out? (it was calc carb btw)

Thanks!

I could make a long list of the things that have been helped so quickly and thoroughly by the homeopathy for our family. The more I experience it and use it the more I trust it and turn to it.
post #89 of 864
That's great it's worked so well for you. I will say that it's normal to see things get worse before they get better and calc carb is notorious for the anxiety and fears. That isn't a suprising "worse" before the "better." I would avoid other remedies at this time though and allow this one to complete it's action. I would DEFINITELY not use an acute remedy to mellow this one out. There are sometimes ways to make it less difficult-but I would allow your practitioner to take the reigns on this one. He seems to be comfortable with this aggravation. IF you aren't I would encourage communication.

I am not a big fan of combo remedies. But hey, they get people interested in homeopathy!

I use acutes all the time with "constitutionals."

Homeopathy *can* work to mellow out food sensitivities, however it's almost always better to remove the triggers so homeopathy can create a healing space. I believe that ingestion of an allergen can often stop a remedy from completing it's action.

I'm not so sure about sulfur working to open sulfation pathways. There are a few companies though that have remedies to help with and support detox, but they aren't at all classical.

HTH!

Hang on. Just re-read this. He has you put a 200C and 1M together in water and sip repeatedly over the course of a few hours?

Incidentally what was the previous remedy she aggravated on? The current is calc carb, yes? What was the potency and how was is given?
post #91 of 864
That is how he almost always doses. Usually a high potency to take right away and sometimes (rarely) the same in a low potency to take as needed. I think for babies it is just the 200c but that could depend on the remedy. I just recently noticed the 1m. We get it in a small envelope.
Pulsitillia was what she took last time. She had taken it several times for colds at a point when her anxiety issues seemed much less so he was trying that as a remedy.

I'm realizing that she has responded really well to arsenicum album in the past but it hasn't addressed the full picture kwim? I wonder if that would help her though.
post #92 of 864
I'm so behind on this thread. to all anyway.
I was just wondering, while trying to catch up, if anyone (barefoot?) has ever actually had to use/prescribe a remedy in the M range. How common is that? And I just have to ask, considering how my remedy effects me (not that I know the dosage or anything)... Just how DEEP do remedies go? I mean... Seriously shake you to the roots of your foundation in mind, body and spirit? That deep? And dare I ask what kind of dosage that kind of deep would be? And what kind of situation would require such a thing? But then it would be different for everyone right?
Totally off topic question but hey. That's what I'm always good for,right?

Sure, I use remedies 1M and above all the time. They have the ability to go much deeper than the lower potencies. I really like the LM series for many people, as well.

Homeopathy goes as deep as it needs to go. Your Vital Force determines what healing needs to go on. The remedy is the tool. There is certainly a great amount of healing on a spiritual level when someone uses their appropriate constitutional remedy. I believe most all of us can use this sort of healing, but I'm biased that way, obviously.
post #94 of 864
Yup! Highest I've used is a 10M, though one of my kiddos was on a 50M at one point-not prescribed by me. 1M is certainly not an uncommon potency for classical prescribing-it's just not generally the first potency!
post #95 of 864
I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question, but hopefully someone can help me..

I've never seen a homeopath or ND (don't really have the funds to right now), but I was wondering if anyone knows of something simple I could do for my acne and DS's sleeping.. I have been trying food elimination and adding supplements for my acne, and sometimes it seems better and sometimes it seems worse, but there's no clear cut solution I've come across. I will continue to tamper with my diet and nutrients, but I'm wondering if homeopathy would be a good to try as well. As far as my son, I'm worried about his sleep. It takes him a long time to get to sleep at night, I haven't stumbled upon a good nightime routine for us. Again, i can keep trying, but I'm home alone with DS most of the time (DH works a lot), and I'm wondering if there's a remedy I can use that won't hurt him but may help me manage night time a little bit better. I think he's the kind of kid who just gets easily excitable and worked up and just has trouble slowing down and surrendering to sleep..

Thanks for any help!!

I've been prescribed M and now recently LM potencies. I am loving the LM... I have never been this deeply affected by a remedy. I had got to a point where I felt like I was losing control of myself and the LM helped get me oh-so-gently back onto track. It went really deep, helped erase a lot of anger and resentment that had seemed to become a part of who I am.

Granted, it was for a chronic condition, not acute prescribing, so I hope I didn't carry this thread too far off base!

I wonder if the acne issue might be related to gut healing that needs to take place? I think I have read that can be related to things like yeast and gut imbalances. Check out the allergy forum for all the detox discussions.

For your son, it sounds like flower essences might help. Panserbjorne does FE consults, and she is awesome. I really think FE are great for that kind of thing. Rescue Remedy makes a Sleep version, that's a FE blend.

I am also taking an LM3 for my constitutional. Working very well.
post #98 of 864
I have an acute situation, and I am utterly useless at acute prescribing. I have never been successful at it and I can't afford a consult right now as I have my own chronic stuff going on that's draining funds.

So...

almost 3 y.o. ds has been having this mucousy cough since about Monday. It's slowly getting worse. It seems like it's coming from the chest and it is difficult at times for him to cough up the mucus. On and off low-grade fever, gets worse at night. The mucus makes it hard for him to sleep, and now, eat. He has always had an overactive gag reflex and so when he tries to eat, if a cough comes, he ends up gagging on the food. Right now he's even gagging without food, just the mucus itself is making him gag.

Any suggestions? I have the wash. homeopathics 100 remedy kit, I can go out and get some more if needed.

Oh and a side question... I would appreciate recommendations for a homeopath that has extensive experience with dealing with multiple sclerosis. Female, preferably, but a male will do as well. Thanks so much!
post #99 of 864
I seem to be a thread killer

does anyone have any ideas for remedies to try? my original question is in the post right above.
post #100 of 864
I always use kali bi for colds or hylands c plus cold. But I'm not sure if that fits yours or not.

Kali Bi is for thick mucus, usually greenish I think.

Pulsitillia is what my girls usually get for their colds. They never gag on their mucus though. It is a common cold remedy though.

Chammomilla is another one for colds. I think that is for yellow mucus and really cranky, cant be put down one red cheek.

I'm looking in my family homeopathy book. When is the cough worse or better? Night day? cold warm? What kinds of things seem to make it better or worse? Any chance it is pertussis? (tis the season).
