Oh for crying out loud.  Now DS is sick.  He's 3.5.  He says he has a headache & his legs ache.  He has a fever that came on suddenly and sort of glassy eyes.  Any thoughts?  I gave some belladonna & now I'm off to search for something else.

I'd probably start with aconite for a remedy and follow with ferrum phos, calc phos and mag phos cell salts.  Feel better, munchkin!

Poor guy.  I've kept up the cell salts.  He seems to really enjoy those.  

 

He's still feverish and now he says the back of his head/neck hurts.  And he's crying.  Poor guy.

how feverish?  can he bend his neck fairly easily?  what else is going on?  how often are you doing the aconite?

I had been doing aconite every 15-30 min.  I let him self administer the cell salts.

 

He said his head/neck hurt when he tried to poop but he is able to look up and to put his chin to his chest.  He is not vomiting & has no rash.  He said he just feels crappy. Very uncomfortable.  Fever is about 102.

get him in the bathtub.  as hot a bath as he can handle for 10-20 minutes.  then dry him off, bundle him up, then get some cold water on his hands and face.  then into bed.

I'll try that tomorrow.  He refused to go in the bath tonight.  And then while my DH was holding him he fell asleep.  We didn't have the heart to wake him.

try it only if his fever hasn't broken.  hot (within reason) bath is a great way to break a fever.

It seems to be cycling up and down.  Right now it isn't so bad.  But he's very tired.  Poor guy.  Time to disinfect the house.  But how?

PB I have a question for you again. I have mercury issues and I've been taking Mercurius V 6C for a while, now I'm taking 30C every hour (I'm on 3 week raw vegan diet, which is probably speeding up the detox and that is why I need 30C?), pendulum says I need Merc V 10M but at the moment 6X will be better. Do you know why? Merc V 6X is not a cell salt, so I'm wondering why would I need it? Also, will Merc V 10M down the road help with the detox? I think I'm missing something, hope you can help clarify this for me.

IME low potencies are excellent to use as "chelation."  I tend to prefer using nothing higher than a 7c for that purpose, but generally the lower the better.  I tend to use 5c, which is sort of equivalent to (in material) to 10x.  I have seen cases where 6x is preferable.  Then I'd guess that the 10m would clean up the damage done by the mercury.  I have done this with arsenic, tin, lead, mercury and antimony for my dh, actually.  Not all together!

I've wonderedaout how to use remedies in that way. The boys and I are mercury toxic, plus arsenic, antimony and aluminum. Although I am hugely concerned about mercury, I know that the arsenic and antimony are preventing adequate magnesium absorption and I would lice to rectify this.
Could I be considering for my boys? What should I be thinking about.
I've known about our issues for a coupe of years and have put them on the backburner.

Children deserve the respect of puzzling it out.

Thanks a lot!

I have tested Merc V 5C and it is better than 6X

Just curious, which remedies correspond to arsenic, tin, lead and antimony?

you can.  it's tricky and you need to know your biochem.  As with many homeopathics it can shake things up.  the benefit to "chelating" this way, is if there are adverse side affects then you simply stop the remedy.  You won't derange anything.

chlobo~ I am just starting to read this thread, but started reading the last page before realizing that I was on the last page... Sigh, I'm too tired to do this tonihgt. Anyway, for what it's worth, since I don't know if your ds has a virus and if by "disinfecting" you meant keep others from getting the virus, I read once that lemon essential oil is good for that. If you diffuse lemon essential oil in a room inhabited by a sick person the lemon oil will kill the virus in the air and prevent others from catching it. I really don't know if it's true of not, but thought I'd throw that out there.

I thought I would post this interesting (to me at least) five case study on rabies vax and mental health in humans. I realize few people get rabies shots in the US, but our animals are required by law to get it at the minimum every three years and many states still require annual rabies vaccination. It really baffles me why animal trainers and behaviorists never associate aberrant behavior with vaccinosis.

 

 

Anti Rabies Vaccination and Mental Health

 

 

Quote:

One such pattern is perceived in cases with a history of anti rabies vaccination [or bite of a dog that has been vaccinated]. It is the intention of this article to show the long term effects on the mental health of such people. Of course we all are aware of the effects of rabies virus in a full blown picture of the disease but it is not such an extreme that is spoken of here, instead, it is the subtle level changes in the higher levels of the being that alter the quality of emotions and thinking.

 

 

I believe this applies not just to the rabies vax, but all vaxes, and I believe it shows that homeopathy can be a very useful tool in helping a person (or animal) recover from subtle (or not so subtle) vaccine damage.

i havent made it all the way thru this thread yet, but i'm wondering if you've talked about allergies (pollen, not food) and treating acutely? my family had been in the habit of popping one of the boiron bluetube for allergies (histaminum hydrochloricum), but as i learn more, i wonder if that's the best approach...? we have a couple allergy times here, fairly short but quite intense-- one's about on us now... the other will be later in the summer, after the rains. i've managed in the past to be mainly fine with local raw honey, but... ahem, certain members of my family are less... diligent..... ;-)

for acute situations that's fine.  from a classical perspective you'd do better to find the remedy that covers the picture which would reduce the symptoms over time.  the other option is isopathy (getting the offending substance in potency kinda like homeopathic allergy shots) which works quite well for many people.

right, that's what i was thinking. the honey does work wonderfully well here, since most of the offending pollen is "native/local"... but that only helps if you take it, lol. 

 

these allergies are really so mild, that it's not worth, imo, doing "much" about them.... but you know i love the notion of addressing the whole picture.... ;-) i'll be interested to see if what dh is doing with cell salts will help.

Hello, sorry to invade your thread, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a homeopathic remedy for overactive letdown. I was seeing a homeopathic doctor, but he moved to Oregon! greensad.gif

 

Haven't read through this incredibly long thread, but I plan on doing so soon. It's hard with a newborn.

 

ETA: wow.. I didn't realize how old this thread is! I hope I can still get some suggestions.
