Start taking

Berberis Vulgaris Q (mother tincture potency)

6 drops in 1/8th glass of water ...three times a day.

Post feed back.. after 3/4 days.

If you notice aggravation at any stage (in case ! )...stop further dosage...note down emerging symptoms and post feed back.

Dear Dr. pankaj Varma,
Thanks for prescription.
Is it for both Depression and Arthritis ???
 
mdmm55 last decade
First your arthiritis and kidney stone formation will go away...you will enjoy better health, will have lesser irritabiltiy...

Will deal with the residual symptoms (of depression, weeping mood or whatever is left) at the next stage.

In homeopathy...have to deal in a manner like climbing stairs. One at a time.

Best wishes

Dear Rishi,
If the emerging sympotms correspond to Lyco...then it would be the second layer remedy!! Till then we will have to wait.

Go step by step....

berberis will give relief if in kidney stones and to some extent in arthritis if the patient is experiencing shooting pains and the location of the pains keep changing.
 
rishimba last decade
Berberis Vulgaris

1. Will eradicate the tendency towards formation of kidney stones

2. Will give relief / cure from arthiritis

3. Second layer of symptoms will emerge ...which will point towards choice of next med to be given.
