I am about two months into my treatment. While it is better, it is not healed. However, I think this is my own fault... I seem to not be able to to remember to take my Arnica, as it is in the fridge downstairs, and I just keep forgetting it. Can I take it in the dry dose? I am fine remembering my Silicea and Nat Phos, and ointment after BM, because they are near my computer where I mostly eat my meals. I know you say it is more effective in the wet dose, but I just cannot remember it. is the dry dose ok?

You can use Arnica 30 in the dry dose but you will discover that it does not have the same effect as the wet dose. I note that you store the remedy in the fridge and this is not at all necessary as it will keep very well out where your computer is. The bottle will be a reminder to you to take the remedy regularly.

If you have read the previous 29 pages of this thread, you would have seen the many cases that have been cured. This usually takes some time but as long as you follow the therapy I have pioneered, you will soon be cured.

Please note that surgery is NOT an option.

I don't find any cases that are even palliated, forget about cure.

You may get diarrohea, if you take water daily from the bottle kept near your computer.

Water won't remain fresh for months together.Add generous amount of good quality Brandy to preserve it, if you want to try the therapy for some more time.

You do not have to worry about getting diarrhoea by not refrigerating the water.
This is another of murthy's canards which he uses to frighten the poor patient into not using my therapy as he seems insanely jealous of my success in helping patients on the ABC.

I am speaking from personal experience for the last 2 years when I changed over to the Arnica i have taken for the last 22 years first in the dry dose and later in the wet dose in water which I keep in my bedroom far removed from a refrigerator. a 500ml bottle of water should last you about 4 months and I can vouch for the fact that I have NOT suffered from Diarrhoea as a result of not refrigerating the remedy water.
Joe De Livera last decade
Just an input here:

All may not be comfortable with usage of brandy. So none should force anybody to use brandy in wetdose.

Most of the time, wetdoses are safe for long periods unless some contaminant creeps in.
maheeru last decade
If brandy can't be used for any reason, atleast activated carbon shoulb be used,if kept outside the refrigerator.

Otherwise, th best option is to keep it in the refrigerator.

Better be safe than sorry.

Please do not interfere with my advice which in this case is not ROCKET SCIENCE and does not fall within the narrow confines of your hyper classical homeopathy. I maintain again that your advice to refrigerate the water or add Spirits of Wine or activated charcoal is absolutely NOT necessary. You have my authority to accept this simple logical fact. I have used the wet dose of my Arnica nightly for the last 2 years and have yet to suffer from Diarrhoea as a result. What you seek to maintain is utter RUBBISH.

Please do not delude yourself and misguide the patients on the ABC especially on the threads that I have prescribed on.

I am aware that Hahnemann recommended that RIVER water be used for the remedy and that Spirits of Wine be added in the proportion that you indicated in the reference a few days ago. All this was good enough in his time when the concept of BACTERIA causing INFECTION was unknown. Science and medicine have changed in the world in the last 200+ years and in the case of the remedy water I maintain that it is absolutely NOT at all necessary to preserve it in a refrigerator as my own experience with the Arnica which is in the wet dose is that it WILL NOT produce bacteria on its own and can safely be kept for 6 months and over in a closed bottle and WILL NOT be the cause of any diarrhoea.

The Spirits of Wine that Hahnemann recommended to be added to the remedy water in today's context is Methyl alcohol and can be fatal if added to the remedy in the proportion that you recommended a few days ago.

The problem with storing a bottle of water in the refrigerator is that members of the family who are not aware that the bottle contains a homeopathic remedy, have often drunk the water in the belief that the bottle contained cooled drinking water.

Wow. Joe

How many times you are to be told that I am not Murthy?

Anyway, since you addressed Murthy, I will let him reply you, if he feels so.

However he told me, he is going to ignore you, and hopefully he will keep quiet, and save you from embarassment.

Have a nice day.

You may like to read this quotation from Aldous Huxley carefully:

'At least two-thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity: idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political ideas.'

Dear Julianna

As another opinion, you might try Calendula 200 three doses on a day and see if that helps.

Hi all, Australia here. I have read all the pages in this post.It has taken all afternoon but was quite enlightening.

I don't know anything about hard stools being the source behind creating a fistula as I have crohns disease and rarely suffer such a luxury.

Both my sister and mother are constantly constipated and eat all manner and matter of compost to get them going while the mere scent of a peach makes me run! And they have never had any of the anal probs that I do.

I am 43/f/have had crohns for 18 yrs. Last year, after suffering a 2 yr crohns flair up I developed an anal abscess. It drained under general.All was good for a while and now it has returned, and here I am. As of today I cannot find the Arnica solution and I my chemist told me he would not deal out over the counter antibiotic ointment. I have managed to get everything else so here goes.

I just want to live a normal life again. It's so depressing as many here have testified.
Thanks,Joe, for being here.

Glad to note that you have read through all the 29 pages of this thread and that you have found them of interest.

It is possible that your Chron's originated with GERD which I would like to know if you suffered from before you were diagnosed with it.

You can get Arnica in the 30c potency at any homeopathic pharmacy. The antibiotic ointment is an integral part of the therapy and I hope that your chemist will give it to you.
Joe De Livera last decade
For what would I use calendula 200??

I use calendula ointment in addition to antibiotic ointment ( not at the same time ) and it does help soothe the area

Here's good medical information about Crohn's disease from medicinenet.com.

What causes Crohn's disease?

The cause of Crohn's disease is unknown. Some scientists suspect that infection by certain bacteria, such as strains of mycobacterium, may be the cause of Crohn's disease. To date, however, there has been no convincing evidence that the disease is caused by infection. Crohn's disease is not contagious. Although diet may affect the symptoms in patients with Crohn's disease, it is unlikely that diet is responsible for the disease.

Activation of the immune system in the intestines appears to be important in IBD [inflammatory bowel disease]. The immune system is composed of immune cells and the proteins that these immune cells produce. Normally, these cells and proteins defend the body against harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other foreign invaders. Activation of the immune system causes inflammation within the tissues where the activation occurs. (Inflammation is an important mechanism of defense used by the immune system.)

Normally, the immune system is activated only when the body is exposed to harmful invaders. In patients with IBD, however, the immune system is abnormally and chronically activated in the absence of any known invader. The continued abnormal activation of the immune system results in chronic inflammation and ulceration. The susceptibility to abnormal activation of the immune system is genetically inherited. Thus, first degree relatives (brothers, sisters, children, and parents) of patients with IBD are more likely to develop these diseases. Recently a gene called NOD2 has been identified as being associated with Crohn's disease. This gene is important in determining how the body responds to some bacterial products. Individuals with mutations in this gene are more susceptible to developing Crohn's disease.

Dear Julianna

Internal calendula administration in 200 potency helps builds up internal strength of the body to repair the damage done to the tissues due to wear and tear.

Other alternative options used for anal fissure are: Paeonia, Ratanhia.

Hi Joe,

I was actually 8 months pregnant with my last child when Crohns developed. I have never heard the term 'GERD' but I scanned the forums for symptoms. As I was pregnant when Crohns developed it is hard to tell due to the excess heartburn etc I suffered during every pregnacy.

What drugs or Homeopathic remedies do you use today for your Chron's ?
Joe De Livera last decade
Hi joe,

I'm currently taking 75mg Imuran,20mg prednisolone, plus the Nat phos and a S.C.F (silicon dioxide 33mg calcium fluride 500 nanogram) homeopathic formula until the silcea arrives from interstate next week.

pastelpoppy last decade
I am also a sufferer of perianal-fistula. Have been operatede on once and it reoccurred. I have read quite a bit of this thread and it seems that silicea and arnica are recommended initially. Doses are a bit vague. Can someone help

Greetings from Baltimore.

This is my first post.

56yo man. 10-15 yrs ago I suffered from abscesses & fistula due to constipation. I treated them myself, lancing them, draining them, soaking in salt water.

My bowel habits have improved since then & I have had no recurrence until recently.

A few months ago I had a gall bladder infection & had my gall bladder removed. Prior to the surgery I was very constipated. After the surgery I was again VERY constipated due to the anesthesia & pain meds. This caused an anal tear. My bowel function is now normal, no constipation.

Last week I developed an abscess. Probably the largest & most painfull I've ever had.

It did not seem to respond to the therapies I had used before. I found this forum a few days ago & have read all 29 pages.

I began the Arnica 2 days ago and have been taking sitz baths with salt & Tea Tree oil. I have also been using antibacterial ointment & dressings.

Yesterday I developed a fever. This concerns me, as I rarely have fever. Right now my temp is 100.7.

Last night while asleep the abscess broke open and drained a bit. Today it has drained more but there is still a good bit of swelling & tenderness, although I can now sit with only minor to moderate discomfort.

My question is about the fever. I really do not want to have a surgical procedure but I wonder if I should be taking a course of antibiotics. I'm afraid if I see a doc that they will insist on surgical methods.

There is never a 'good' time to have an abscess but this is a most difficult time for me. I recently suffered a concussion & neck whiplash, am battling depression, and am in the midst of having lengthy dental work performed.

I'd appreciate any comments/suggestions about the fever, and any other treatments I should consider.

SmilingJack last decade
In my previous post I wrote-

'Last night while asleep the abscess broke open and drained a bit...'

I should have said the drainage was from the fistula, and perhaps the anus.

SmilingJack last decade
I tried tea tree oil in my sitz bath last year. Made my abscess bleed. Better not use TT oil.
izaac last decade
Thanks Izaac-
I will consider your advice. Use of the Tea tree oil was for its antiseptic properties.
SmilingJack last decade

Thanks for the advice on the TT oil, I have stopped using it in my sitz bath.

The fever has resolved.

A new question-
The swelling of the abscess goes down, but it increases again when I have a bm. Any thoughts on this?
