This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Sameer,

a) Whether I need luck or not is my situation. You are hardly experienced enough to comment on what I need, so please stop making subjective statements. Stop playing God on the internet.

b) Stop acting like a freshman debater where you make comments on my argument getting weaker. Forcibly trying to prove another point of view weak is an inexperienced way to prove yours is stronger by inference.


In specific response to your question: I am very well versed with homeopathic supression. You are making assumptions - those symptoms were aggravation with my son, and not supression. The direction of cure was correct - away from the brain and inside to out. Depending on how 'stuck' a vital force is, it may need more than one nudge to move to equilibrium.

So back to your question: 'why wont you judge the response to the first dose before giving the next ? How do you know the sensitivity of the patient before hand ?'

Who says one knows the sensitivity of a patient before hand ? That is exactly what is done in case-taking. Your approach is not wrong - you start small and gradually increase. That is what a knowledgeable person would do. A person with wisdom, however, would have the confidence to directly go to the dose and potency he feels will work. He will not start from scratch. It is sort of like a computer tech support who makes you run through the full course of tier 1, 2 and 3 debugging to solve a problem (and maybe he does eventually find it) vs. a veteran who knows exactly what the problem is and how fast to address it. Remember that homeopathy also dictates a 'fast cure'. If you take the path of taking a step at a time and eventually arriving at a cure, no one can argue with that. But I also won't argue with those who know how to get there quicker.

You are hardly in a position to be debating something on homeopathy. Just some arm chair homeopathy.. just some reading of articles by Dr. 'Luc' and 'lunch' with a 'homeopath' are hardly any experience Mr aske.

Now to answer your question..
It may INDEED need more than one nudge but not the SAME nudge. It never can be the same nudge. With C potencies it will be the same nudge and vital force does not take sam nudges very well. That is the whole point. With LMs each dose has a different dynamization and hence the vital force receives those nudges very well. No person can tell how a person will react. That is why LM potencies were designed, so that you can tailor the size of the dilution glass, remedy bottle and number of sucussions to the sensitivity. And, you get faster cure as you can repeat as long as the person is improving and getting no troublesome symptoms.

If a doctor says 20 DRY doses of Sulphur 30c without waiting for the first dose's response, he is just a person who happens to have a 'degree' on homeopathy and is very good at causing suppressions.

This is not the correct way, and I hope you will learn this lesson someday, and I do hope it is not the hard way.

I will now not respond to your baseless arguments as your knowledge about homeopathy is very basic to say the least and I do not deem it worth my time to be debating with you.

Good bye

Ok, thats fine. You have no clue what I am currently learning or working on in enhancing my knowledge in homeopathy, so stop postulating about me.

Sadhna: My sincere apologies for deviating this thread. Your child's treatment is far more important than two people trying to prove they know a lot or know little of nothing.

To be fair - please don't let my comments come in the way of any advice you get from Sameer. I still believe he is good. I have problems with his opinions on methodologies beyond his own, but that has no effect on the sound advice he may give you for your child. This needs to be stated, as it is easy to bias your opinion on a person on a single bad comment.

What are miasms? Also, do you feel Vaccinations might have caused all these problem for him? If yes, how does one address that?

Also, just to mention, I do feel my son has become quite stubborn. He has a mind of his own & will do only what he wants, unless one really sits down & explains why he should not do something & then again he may just repeat that. I wonder if that is because of the 'suppression' both of you were talking about. Right now his eczema is more or less in control. It comes back only if he eats something which he might be allergic to. Could he be allergic to Fax Seeds? Everytime I add that in his food, I find him a little scratchy all over. Will it be ok if I try Flax seed oil instead?

One more thing. Although it is his age (Age 2 - exploration of genitals), I find him always looking for a chance to not wear his pants back on after using toilet. Also, he very frequently keeps holding/fiddling with his genitals while his pants are not on. Is this normal for his age? I mean, I have seen other children also busy with this at that age. Just wondering.
 
sadhna last decade
He used to scared of darkness & thunder but today I noticed he was outside with his sister & then he was not afraid of thunder or lightening. Also, yesterday he saw him to a dark room alone.
 
sadhna last decade
Vaccinations MIGHT have caused some of these problems. Silicea is one remedy which might be indicated somewhere i this case.

I do not have answers for what his possible allergies are. For a homeopath allergy is just another symptom. And, indeed his mental worsening with skin improvements are pointing to a supressive treatment attained by long repetition of remedies. This is pointing to a wrong direction of cure.

Exploration of genitals is normal as long as it does not lead to any overt sexual overtones in his behaviour.

I once again re-iterate there is no disease which requires more than a few doses of one C potency in the dry dose form. The C potencies in dry dose form do not bear repetition well at all.

Regarding your questions on miasms , it will take me a few pages to explain that, hence, I cannot do it here.

Sadhna, speaking as a dad, not as a (pseudo) medical expert:

a) A person being stubborn is not reason enough to throw medicine at him. When a child is growing up, his characteristics get clearer as he gets older. In your case, if you son 'suddenly turned stubborn' after some medication, it may well be a result of that medication.

b) I am absolutely sure you should stop flaxeed oil. If he scratches every time you add it, it is a sureshot sign. My son had a similar reaction to flaxeed and I stopped it right then.

c) Think of miasm as an underlying cause of a disease. One of the literal definitions of miasm is a 'cloud like formation'. When applied to homeopathy, a miasm would be a deep underlying 'situation' that effectively clouds and prohibits other medication, which may well seem to relate to a condition to cure that condition. Based on my reading, Hahnemann was frustrated why his remedies were not 100% successful with everyone. If he analyzed the case properly, prescribed the right medication, why wouldn't it cure? He assumed there was an 'underlying cause' that was causing sufficient interference with the vital force (the energy that drives the human system) which if not removed, will not let other symptoms be cured. He then went on to specify three different categories of 'miasms' which he felt was the underlying cause of all diseases of mankind. The most common miasm is Psora (the itch).

Hi again. I just keep of things I have not informed you earlier, so want to get to teh computer fast & key it in. My child is getting all coughing in wet or cold weather nut if it rains in hot summers, he's ok.

Also, in his sleep three four times I have heard saying 'I dom't want to wear that heavy helmet'. This comes from a FireMan letting him wear his 'very heavy' helmet in one of the Big Wheel Functions. If it is relevant : he sleeps on his stomach a little bit towards right side, at times a little towards left also.

Sadhna, another recommendation: consider buying and reading 'Homeopathy Treatment of Eczema' by Robin logan. It is a very small and easy to read book, but includes a description of homeopathic remedies specific to eczema, with modalities and traits specific to eczema treatment, which are not evidently visible when reading more general and detailed homeopathy books (like the materia medica) If you are not interested in self-learning, it may not lead you to a remedy, but will certainly educate you on the fundamentals.

Sameer, in your opinion, should the antidote for vaccines be given first or should the miasmic state of a person be treated first? Or should the medicines be administered for the illnesses the indiidual has got? Would Silicea come before Phosphorus then? Is there only one antidote for all the vaccines administered? Once we give an antidote, are all those vaccines redundant then? So will I understand that my child is not vaccited against any of the diseases? What about the vaccines which are due at 3 years of age? Also, I did want him vaccinated against TB & Chicken Pox since I had through reading many a articles inferred that had BCG been given to him just after birth, the 'T' cells which cause Eczema & IGE imbalance might not have occured. Also Chicken pox & Eczema can be very scary. Lots of questions here, but just thinking aloud. & thanks again for your continued interest in my child's health. You really have given continous attention for his well being. Thanks!!

Thanks aske123 for the recommendation. I will try & get that book.

'Sameer, in your opinion, should the antidote for vaccines be given first or should the miasmic state of a person be treated first? Or should the medicines be administered for the illnesses the indiidual has got? Would Silicea come before Phosphorus then?'

His current state is very tubercular and Silicea happens to be one of our strongest tuberculars and Phosphorus too is one of the best tubercular medicines. In tubercular children Silicea and Phosphorus can be very hard to differentiate over the internet. It is a lot easier if one can meet the child in person.

'Is there only one antidote for all the vaccines administered? Once we give an antidote, are all those vaccines redundant then? So will I understand that my child is not vaccited against any of the diseases? What about the vaccines which are due at 3 years of age?'

His vaccines are not redundant after giving medicines which nullify the harms done. It is just the bad effects of the vaccines which are tackled through homeopathy. Thuja and Silicea are 2 remedies which are commonly indicated in such cases.

You're welcome. And, just a note about treating eczema based on reading books: The correct medicine for a CHRONIC skin complaint has to be based on the totality of the case. It is just an outward manifestation of an internal derangement. If the eczema is treated as a stand alone problem, it will not respond well to such treatment and even if it does after heavy dosage, it will be supression and not cure, where the disease will later on attack more vital organs.

Sameer, when you mentioning about meeting the child in person, please let eknow any kind of queries you might have or the observations you forsee one can make. If you ask me in particular, I think I should be able to give answers to the same.

Also, do you feel that I should continue to get him vaccinated at 3 years of age & thereafter?

Reference eczema, you are right. I donot plan to have him take medicines only for eczema unless that is the last resort. I think I am able to take care of it to a considerable extent as of now. Its his food allergies that are killing me. Since I have to say no to everyother thing children around are eating. It is hurting him in the long run. Also, asthma now seems to be ok but come Fall & winter season, I don't want to switch back his preventive inhaler medicines. Behaviour wise he is ok too.

Sadhna,

Some of the keynotes of Silica can be :

The foot sweat may be very offensive and profuse.

Fear of pointed objects.

It has a tendency to abcess formation anywhere on the body.

Infection of tear ducts or blocked tear ducts in infants. They also have a tendency towards constipation.

Head can be larger in proportion to the body. Infants are weak and puny, have poor appetite, and are unable to tolerate even mother's milk.

Obstinate children who have a tendency to weep when scolded. These children are usually a bit shy with strangers and in public.

Chilly and worse from cold


Keynotes of Phosphorus are:

Fear of the dark, thunderstorms and sudden noises

Prone to diarrhea and vomiting

Tall and thin

Amelioration from consolation. (can be there in Silicea too but to a lesser extent)

Love for cold drinks (this can be there in Silicea too)


Chilly and worse from cold in terms of chest complaints though digestive and head complaints are better from cold

The Phosphorous child is sensitive, precocious and open. He can make contact with anyone, child or adult. The parents say that they fear the child could be kidnapped because of this open, trusting nature. The child is both curious and sympathetic for others. There are often strong fears and great desire for company. They crave for affection and hugs. They can generously share their favourite toys in excitement.

Let me know what you think
 
sameervermani last decade
As you can see the difference lies in the degree of open-ness and enthusiasm . Also, Phosphorus has more fears , and is in general very very expressive.


Silicea child would need a Phosphorus or a Sulphur to lead him into having fun. He is himself a bit shy.

Keynotes of Phosphorus are:

Fear of the dark, thunderstorms and sudden noises

:yes to all to an extent

He wakes up in the morning with water like discharge with sneezes & itchy nose most often.

Also, I feel that since he was given DPT vaccination in 2nd month, all these problems might have got started.
 
sadhna last decade
I noticed that when he is having wheezing, his eczema diassapears 7 just when he startes to get better, it comes back
 
sadhna last decade
My prescription remains the same, a total of 3 wet doses of Phosphorus 30C :)
 
sameervermani last decade
His eyes get puffy with sneezes everytime sumething in the envivironent irritates him. He will usually do better with some water & sitting down away fro whereever started sneezing/coughing.

He is quite allergic to dust. Whenever there is vaccum beindon somewhere, he gets bad.
 
sadhna last decade
ok I think I should go in for that. What am I supposed to keep handy. Should I give him the Salbutamol/Xopenex inhaler, if gets wheezy? And if eczema resurfaces, apply anything or just let it take its time? What should I expect??
 
sadhna last decade
Absolutely nothing is to be applied on the skin during this treatment even if the eczema re-surfaces. (There is a distinct chance it will)

This is very very important.

Infact if he now gets a TEMPORARY return of eczema to some extent, it will be a good sign.

Avoid inhalers for a few days if possible, but desist from any skin ointments very strictly.

I am here almost every day, so you can keep updating me . Remember the medicine is to given for 1 day only.
 
sameervermani last decade
Is this going to take care of the DPT dose effect at 2 month age as well or are we going to tackle that later on?
 
sadhna last decade
We will take care of that later on, but the next layer can be tackled only when the outermost is cured.
 
sameervermani last decade
Ok Sameer I'll go ahead. Lets hope for the best.
 
sadhna last decade
Sameer, if he gets high fever, should I be giving him acetaminophen or a homeopathic medicine?
