overweight and osteo arthritis

Hello to all the learned and experienced doctors out there,

This is regarding my brother who has recently been diagonised with oste0 arthritis. Actually there are again multiple problems and they might all be related. About 4 years ago, he was operated for extra bone in an ankle which looked a very sharp piece the again about 6 months ago he expperience pain in the second ankle and was operated in that too.. He still is having pain in the ankles and now the doctors say that there is calcium deposition in tendons which cannot be operated. He also has aggravated pain in the knees and cannot get up or lower down and experiences unbearable pain. Which recently an x-ray reveled to be an early stage of osteo-arthritis. He is only 31 years old and unmarried.

I would also like to mention his physical and other traits...

He is overweight with 100 kgs at the height of 5'8 He has been trying to control his weight for last decade but even if he succeeds playing football and can bring douwn to 6-7 kgs, the knee and ankle pains do not allow him to continue further and then again he gains weight. He has a very prominent hip and butt region and has to walk under its weight. also has a buldging belly and swollen mammary glands for quite long. He is very fragile with joints (even shoulders) There is a quite a dramatic contrast of his facial skin color and rest of the body. He used to have blood oozing out of 'pimples' about 5 years ago like anything which have left some dents in his facial skin. Has very soft hair and a receding forehead hairline. Has multi stream urine.

nature wise he is very short tempered and adamant.

He badly needs to get in shape and I beg to have some recommendations for his weight loss and all the arthritis problem. I would be hugely grateful as the family cant see him walking limpy and most things are out of allopathy's methods. PLEASE HELP !!!!!

Also, has very white and dry lips, yellowish teeth, black heads on nose and used to have sore throat even taking lemon or in cold weather.

thank you so much doctor. I will convey your prescription to my brother and ask him the progress. Also, I read that fiborous food (like Kefir probiotics) is important to absorb calcium and improve digestion, weight loss. Is there any such culture/food available in India ?

first you continue the same if we found any improvement their after send all the detail in our prescribe form ....

Any medicine taken continuously for a month in unchanged doses may bring in troublesome 'proving 'symptoms, that belong to the medicine, which the patient never experienced earlier.

In case he gets troublesome symptoms, by using so many medicines together continuously, stop taking the medicines and rush to the nearest competent homeopath who gives one medicine at a time.

Hopefully he can reverse the damage, if any.

That is the good part of this forum. Anybody is free to suggest whatever one feels right and leave it to the discretion of the patient to have faith in one particular prescription. With all due respect to Dr. Sharma, it is possible that I might not have stated the problems in a right manner. i checked the online remedy center of ABC and none of the prescribed medicines, address the acutenesss of the osteo arthritis and weight loss. Though I could not agree more with 'stop rice' part. So, Dr. Murthy, if you have a suggestion for testing for a shorter period with lesser medicine, you might want to post it. I might eventually end up using Dr. Sharma's prescription but that would be in a good spirit. The calcium deposition part is serious as it renders him unable to walk. Also, when i say 'swollen mammary glands', it does not mean fluid in pulmonary vessels, I actually meant flabby chest with the swollen brownish part, projected outward. Please ask for any clarifications. It cannot make a patient/doctor more happier, if something clicks !!!!

Best Regards...

Where does your brorher live? Can't he see a good homeopath in person?

A complete case is to be taken, a thorough analysis is to be made, and a proper follow up is required.

It is difficult for people on the forum to invest so much time.

Dear Dr./Er. Murthy,
Thank you for taking your time out to respond with some invaluable suggestions. Yes, he has visited 'competent' homoepaths only to get medicines for 4 months and that too without knowing whats in there. Atleast this way we know what is being prescribed and the follow up procedures are much efficient. If something doesnt work, we dont loose too much time.

Anyway, i thought you had a one medicine tester and hence delayed conveying Dr. Sharma's prescription to my brother.

Thanks again....

All the best.

Please do post feedback for our learning.

Dear Dr. Sharma,
As advised by you, my brother stopped rice completely for one month and took the medicines prescribed by you.

Progress: He started out with an exact weight of 108 kg and it is now 105 after 3 weeks (though it is not very apparent from outside looks but i guess it is working). His tongue that used to have white coating has become clear. He did suffer with some sore throat and cold a few week ago especially in the morning but it is better now.

Knees: The ankles have marked improvement in pain but he has trmendous PAIN in the left kneee (towards the upper half of the roll) whenever he climbs or exerts. It gets better after relaxing or sleeping.

General traits: he has improvement in his nature. His leg has this black rough scales like that of fish with cracked skins (i guess he lacks circulation in leg). The front portion of the chest has some alleviated swelling.

I think the weight loss program is working (not sure its because of diet control or the medicines but we are liking the improements). I seek future course from you for continuation of weight loss and curing the knee pain since the ongoing pescription completes one month on the 1st as told by you...

Best Regards...

Helloo...Can somebody reply to my post ???? Should the dosage be continued or should there be a change ??

Please REPLY...(not for Murthy)
don_1 last decade
dear don_1,
I have read the case carefully and am of the opinion that Let dr. sharma respond. He is on board now-a-days please wait for him and for the time being please stop all the medicine.

He is only having nat phos 6X now. His weight is reducing considerably. He is now 101...started out at 108. Is it because of Nat phos or diet control ? He now feels confident that he can have a fat free, rice free lifestyle forever. We are afraid that discontinuation of a medicine that is producing such great results might render him back to the original.
