Banning of Homeopathic Doctors
Posted by Michael (New Zealand) on 02/15/2017

Oh Ke Dokey! Gather round folks and listen up! Are you sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin:-

In a long-forgotten, far-away land, there lived a Special Doctor (we shall call him S D instead of M D for short). "Special" because he had done pioneering work to save people who had given up hope from other sources. He thought outside the normal medical constraints. He was a qualified Allopathic doctor as well as being a gifted and innovative Homoeopathic practitioner. I travelled seven hours there and seven hours return to see him on several occasions when I was in some strife many years ago, so you can appreciate I held him in high regard! He was considered unconventional by some of course and the Medical Establishment were suspicious of his methods naturally and attacked him more than once without managing to "dent" or "faze" him badly. Like James Bond's martini, he was "Shaken but not stirred"!

I well recall the first time I consulted him! At the conclusion of his diagnosis / treatment, I sincerely thought he had said "And how shall we pay?" (credit card, visa, cash??) but I must have been a tad hard of hearing (or mentally in another place possibly), as what he had in reality asked was, "And NOW shall we PRAY?". An understandable error on my part I suppose, as your regular sawbones does not often ask that these days I guess. After the prayer, and after I had settled up, we parted company! I visited him a few times UNTIL he was finally struck off by the Medical Council who managed to finally get to him at long last. They gave him the run around for a long time! It was very sad, as at the time he ceased to practise, (UK type spelling used here! ) he would have been helping hundreds of patients who were subsequently deprived of his ministrations.

From what I was led to understand, a couple of politically correct zealots were at least partly responsible for his being censured!

I believe he managed to carry on with some of his homoeopathic patients though, which is something to be grateful for at least.

I have retained a long-held sense of injustice about his treatment and it still rankles to this day. Still, Good will hopefully triumph in the end after life's long and worrying vicissitudes!? I suppose I should harbour (UK again-sorry! ) Christian thoughts and trust that the two protagonists have found peace somewhere later in life and not been so easily prone to having their sensibilities offended!!?? Yeah - right!

Cheers and take care,


Homeopathic Calc Sulph
Posted by Dr Howard (Torrance ) on 05/13/2024

This is for anyone who is looking for a remedy that alleviates burning, itching, etc.
Also for irritations in nasal passages, etc. Ulcers too. It also purifies the blood, and closes up skin wounds, ulcerous skin and boils it seals up the discharge conditions.

Homeopathic Calc sulph. Start with 6X use up the bottle. If no results or partial results, jump to 12X. Same finally to 200X.Should get results by this time.

lt microscopically protects the linings of the entire body.It is analogous to an egg shell that protects the albumen and yoke only in this case it's body cells.
ln the past l was allergic to dust. After l took Calc sulph 6X all allergic reactions ceased.
Later l had GERD and after taking Calc sulph all symptoms left to this day.

Homeopathic Calc Sulph
Posted by Amy (Los Angeles, CA) on 05/14/2024

Hi Dr. Howard,

I have severe allergies, especially to dust. I wear two masks when cleaning but I still start sneezing, get congested, get runny eyes, etc. How many times per day were you taking the Calc Suph?

Can you tell me if you are taking a maintenance dose? If so, how much and how often? Also, which brand are you taking? I want to make sure I get the right one.

Thank you for your help.

Multiple Cures

Hi Ambika,

Good to know that homeopathic remedies are such useful. My wife has similar terrible shoulder soreness and is not healing. I would like her to try the homepathic medicine you use.

I would really appreciate if you can name the medicine you use and where it is available.

Thanks again.

Tick Bites
Posted by Thamas (East Coast NSW, Australia ) on 11/20/2007

re: cure for tick bite for dogs and humans -- My dog had a severe reaction to a nasty tick. Her eyes were rolling in the back of her head and her tongue was swollen and she couldn't breathe. She was going to die. Instead of a $700 vet bill I gave her about 7 drops of diluted ledum (a homeopathic) every 10 - 15 mins and within 1/2 hr she was completely normal. there was no side effects or after trouble. Hey presto problem solved. If anyone in my househould starts to feel sick from tick bite or even if I find a tick on anyone it is always cured completely with ledum.

Silicea for Stress, Exhaustion
Posted by Arlene (Florida) on 11/10/2023

Just want to add my two cents. First off Earth Clinic and all those that post- I appreciate so much. It is my go to when I'm not feeling up to par. Anyway homeopathic remedies fascinate me. It is so sad that regular doctors scoff and discredit the remedies. I happened to find a book in the thrift store written yrs ago by the late Dr. Vogel titled The Nature Doctor. He wrote about homeopathic remedies in one chapter. Anyway, he recommended silicea for hair and skin and also mentioned silacea for breast lumps. I bought the tube of silicea 12x and label states take 5 pellets. I must admit I kinda just left it in the cabinet. Recently I guess from stress and anxiety I was feeling so wound up. I started rummaging thru all my supplements and then I found the silicea tube. Glanced at the label and it said remedy for fatigue and overwork. So I took 5 pellets. In a short time, I felt like a different person. I have researched silicea and found it helps with a multitude of ailments. If you are feeling really out of sorts and anxious or panicky do give silicea a try. I ordered more from Boiron the company that makes homeopathic remedies. The customer service rep said take remedies as needed and then stop. If symptoms return resume pellets. As one previous post stated you have to try and match your symptoms to the remedies. However silicea seems to work for more issues than stated on the tube. Stay well everyone ❤️❤️Arlene

I have over the years never failed on helping bad knees with Calc fluor 30X. Four pills once each evening under the tongue. When pain or any discomfort stops cease taking.

Then take a dose now and then if any reoccurrence. Good for tone elasticity in body, joints, bones, as well as for teeth and gums.

Read about this wonderful remedy.

Don't take too often.

Arnica for Falls
Posted by Zai (Montgomery, Tx) on 02/12/2012

I used to fall all the time. I have found that it simply means that your body wants you to slow down and don't rush through life. For falls, I have found that Arnica Montana (a homopathic remedy) really works. You put 5 tiny tablets under your tongue. But on condition that you take it at the time or close to the time of the fall. My 85 year old mum, sisters, friends and I carry it every where we go. It has been a life saver on many an occasion - and normally I take it that one time or if there is an ailment that requires a little more help, I take it for 3 days 3x a day. It can be quite costly $7.99 a tube but worth every bit of it. The Arnica 200 is about $9.99 and it is for more severe mishaps. It helps your body as it goes through any trauma (it help speed my recovery when I was in a car wreck). Also helps my family sleep on sleepless nights. It is a wonderful thing. I drink noni juice for pain - it really works if you keep up with it and will help your arthritic problems. I also take ____, a natural antiinflammatory - you can purchase it at Whole Food Stores or any health food store. It has rosemary, turmeric, ginger, Holy basil, green tea, Hu Zhuang, Chinese Goldthread, Barberry, oregano and Baikal Skullcap in it. I take it 2x a day in between meals to help the body get rid of the inflammation. The pain is there because your body wants you to attend to the problem and it is reminding you to take extra precautions. What a great doctor our body is. Arthritis, heart problems, cancer and diabetes amongst other ailments is caused by inflammation and you need to take anti inflammatory. Hope this helps.

Hi to all. I decided to post this here instead of lastest questions area, because the questions don't seem to be getting any response.

Anyway, There was a homeopathic product out a few years ago, that was removed by the FDA because a few people claimed to have lost thier sense of smell. This was in a gel form and was squirted into the nose to shorten the duration of the common cold. It WORKED and this is probably the real reason the FDA removed it. NONE of my family members ever lost any sense of smell using it. And it was safe for all ages, DID NOT raise blood pressure and men with prostate problems DID NOT have to fear using it.

The active ingredient was zincum gluconicum 2x... My question is if Ted or Bill or anyone else might know of a way to make this at home in a gel formula. What process and ingredients are needed?

Posted by Rebel (Somewhere, Usa) on 01/27/2012

Ok Diane. Where did this come from??? I am not on any drugs... I simply am asking does anyone know how to make this Zincum in gel formula so I can put it in my nose when I have a cold.

Preserving Homeopathic Remedies
Posted by Kirsten (Santa Fe, N.m. U.s.a.) on 12/02/2009

I first heard about Codex Alimentarius on You Tube and it seems almost too evil to believe. I hope for everyone's health and wellbeing that it is only an evil rumor and not an actual plan.
Something that has worked for me for the past few years as a way of saving money on homeopathic remedies may become a necessity if Codex is real:

You can keep homeopathic remedies going forever if you preserve the vibration in alcohol.

Here's how it works:

Take your pellets or pills and put them in a new glass bottle with a dropper. Fill the bottle 3/4 of the way with any hard liquor and allow the pellets to dissolve. ( If you have a remedy already in liquid form just refill the bottle with liquor.) Succuss the bottle about 100 times by tapping it on your palm. You can repeat this as many times as you like as you are simply keeping the vibration going. A few drops is a sufficient dose. I usually succuss the bottle a few times each time I take a remedy just to keep the vibration strong.

Blessings and thanks.

Thank you for this web site and for the posts. I had severe gout pain every day for 2 months, so I gave in and tried the medicines the doctor prescribed. They made me so sick I could not take them. I tried ACV (1 TSP ACV, 1 TSP Honey, 4-6 oz of hot water- makes a decent tasting hot tea) a couple times a day, cherry juice, and ibuprofen cream. The pain went away within 2 days. I know the ACV is working as I had never tried it before; I had been eating a lot of cherries and that helped for a while, but not enough when it got severe. I wanted to share the ibuprofen cream idea as I did not see it on this web site. My wife uses it on her jaw for TMJ, so I thought I'd try it. I just rub some into the joint before bed and/ or in the morning and it seems to reduce swelling and increase mobility and decrease pain. It's called homeopathic ibuprofen cream for muscles and joints and it works well.

Dengue Fever
Posted by Allan (Cebu City, Philippines ) on 01/14/2008

Dengue Hemorrhagic fever. I have been using a homeopathic preparation: cinnamomum HA in ampoule form since 1998 given by IM or orally and it is very cost effective. No need for admission if DF is diagnosed earlier. Need only from 3 to 8 ampoules. If patient is in bad state just an IV drip in the clinic for 4 hours with homeopathic remedies in it, patient goes home well immediately. Tried many times to show to other physicians but they are very biased to alternative treatments. No complications noted since its use. so patient friendly.

Banning of Homeopathic Doctors

Https://youtu.be/R8VyUsVOic0 Water has a memory. Homeopathic teaching getting closer to being proved. You will have to see video in sections a lot to ponder. In my experiments, l have proven many areas, but when l get funds will be writing a series of books. l can prove many areas in Heath, etc.

Or one could take 25-50 mg Zinc Gluconate daily with much the same results. I would add 3mg Copper once-in-a-while.

Posted by Lia (London, UK) on 02/05/2010

Hello phoenix, I am happy to answer your questions.

I'm not sure what you mean by "doseage". the 6c is the potency. You could have a 30c potency. The difference is not that important. She is taking once a day.

I get my remedies from a homeopathic pharmacy. My experience is that the ones you buy in the shops are ok.

re remedy responses - it depends on whether you are treating something acute or chronic. Acute problems, like an injury, will respond to Arnica for most people(see the post how homeopathy works). Something more chronic, like arthritis, may need "constitutional" treatment. That is taking the personality into account. You need to see a homeopath for that. But you can still do a lot of good with homeopathy at the first aid/acute level.

Of course there are a lot of 'gray area' complaints like headaches. They could be both acute and chronic. There are many homeopathic remedies for headaches and then you do start individualising the remedy, to see which one matches the person and their symptoms most closely. Homeopathy is about treating the person rather than the complaint.

I hope that makes sense and I am happy to continue posting.

My mom, who is elderly, had bad osteoarthritis in one knee, with pain, swelling, and limited range of motion. It would be severe at times. She started taking homeopathic Hypericum 30c 2 pellets twice a day for something totally unrelated.

The same day she started it, she was surprised to find that the swelling and pain in her knee was very much reduced, and she now had full range of motion. That night, she told me she got into bed bending that knee for the first time in years!

At first we thought it was just the change in weather, but it continued getting better so that she no longer needs a cane. She stopped taking it after two weeks, and the pain started to creep back, so she has started it again, with improvement again.

It was startling how fast the improvement was. We consider it a miracle, since we weren't even treating arthritis. It's nice to have a positive side effect for a change.

I'd like to add my glowing review from successes with Homeopathic medicine.

Only 2 years ago I first tried out a medicine for PMS cramping, which I often get very severely, and the remedy continues to work well. I use a 'combination' medicine specifically for Headaches that is better than anything else I've ever used, natural or pharmacueticial...wine hangover/headache goes away swiftly too!

I have also used homeopathic remedies for pain from a ruptured ovarian cyst, and it helped immensely.

I am still getting acquainted with this form of natural healing, which treats immediate symptoms with accuracy and speed. It amazed me what ailments can be treated... not just physical symptoms, but emotions, like stress, irritability, etc.

Just a few weeks back I was having terrible shoulder soreness and an overwhelmed feeling after the workday. I found remedies for both ailments that worked well to take the edge off, as I had already been massaging and stretching as much as I could, and trying to rest.

It isn't easy to wrap the mind around Homeopathic medicine, how exactly it works, but we are all learning much these days about vibrations and energy and such... and it's something of a mystique, but they DO work well! Sometimes the challenge is matching the right remedy to your very specific ailment, and some books and vendors pamphlets make this process easier.

I'll continue to write more to add to this page because I hope more people will come to know about Homeopathics and thier uses, especially when an immediate action is needed that isn't found as easily in other natural remedies.

I use and try all other forms of natural healing and living, including herbs, acv/baking soda, coconut oil, hydrogen peroxide, healthy/raw diet, juicing, lots of water, positive attitude, green tea, flower essences for emotional healing, striving for good habits, generosity, etc. etc. etc. and I feel strongly that Homeopathics certainly have thier place. I hope more people will come to be aware of all they have to offer. If I could I would love to study this fascinating subject formally. I am pretty passionate about it along with the Flower Essences...

I am just getting into this homeopathic medicine. I have had a problem with my dog for about a year. I have had her to four different vets who didn't know what was causing her problem or what she had. The only thing they could do was put her on prednisone. I didn't want that, so I kept searching. Infinite wisdom put someone in my path that suggested her homeopathic veterinarian. The dog was getting me up 6 times a night and I was exhausted. I contacted the vet and she prescribed a remedy. After just ONE dose, the dog slept all night and has been for about three weeks now. I'm hoping she will continue to get better. Do you have any books that you would recommend to me as I too would like to learn more?

Ancient systems of healing in our country have proved over ages that a holistic approach to our body ailments can navigate our ailments to the root cause. Modern system of medicine and treatment follow eradication from upper layers of a disease but do not attempt at locating how causes innately.

Trazadone and gabapentine put you in a stupor. Try to get off these drugs and you may feel much better. I once had to take gabapentine for eye surgery pain, I just sat in a daze. I couldn't wait to stop taking it.

How Homeopathy Works
Posted by Lia (London, England) on 02/04/2010

It's great to see suggestions for homeopathy remedies on this site. As a homeopath with over 15 years' experience, I know it works! It's just that 'science' cannot yet explain how micro-doses of a substance can cause a curative effect. It's about the energy, and we just don't have the tools to measure energy, yet.

Homeopathy strengthens the body's own healing mechanism, the immune system, to heal itself. That is why it is good to have holistic, constitutional treatment in addition to the suggestions here for particular ailments.

One thing you should all know about is Arnica Montana for physical injury and brusing. After a fall, or surgery, it helps the body heal faster. I give it to my patients if they need an operation, Arnica 30c twice a day for a up to a week afterwards, and invariably their doctor will comment on how quickly they've healed. Also good for children's falls and scrapes. You might notice the bruising gets worse at first. Like with oil-pulling releasing toxins, this is a sign that the body is working. The bruise may look painful, but the person feels well.

I am a homeopath with over 15 years' experience. One patient was told she would have to have knee surgery in the near future due to osteo-arthritis in the knee. This was several years ago now and no surgery. She has been taking Ruta 6c once a day. She enjoys walking with no knee problems. She also has regular constitutional treatment which keeps her immune system strong.

Kirsten, thanks for all you input on the homeopathy. I found it interesting that you can keep the remedy going but I'm not quite sure what you mean about keeping the remedy going if you already have it mixed with water. I'd appreciate a little bit more info.
