I think I missed somewords there.

On 'becoming independent' bit, I think its possible that it is after taking tuberculinum, because prior to that I only remember carrying him whenever outside bacause he was so scared of every new face. The moment he felt insecure, he wanted to be held & carried & used to cry if asked to get down. This does happen even now, but only once a while - only when he is really scared that he might get hurt or when he is upset.

Sameer, my son likes to drink a whole glass of water at one go, don't remember him taking sips of water - What suits him is room temperature water but he likes cold water as well. Just thought of it, so posted it.
Regards

There are indications of Calcarea Carb and Silica here, but before we relinquish Phosphorus, I want you to give him a SINGLE dose of Phos 200c.

1 dose = 1 spoon from a bottle of spring water where 2 pellets of Phos 200c have been dissolved. No eating/drinking for 1 hr on either side of this dose. Let me know in 1 week after this.

I have a feeling , giving him Tuberculinum for 4 months (!!!) might have muddled his picture as well.

Hi Sameer
So I understand that I have to give only one sip from that bottle & not three across the day like I did with Phos 30c. Only one day in that one day & thats it. Please confirm. Also, I didn't see phos 200c at the store I went last time. Is there any possiility of using these phos 30c tabs for the 200c potency? If all that is not possible at all, would I prefer to order online.
Looking forward to your reply. Thanks & regards

Also, I finished my ars alb dosages yesterday. Was having a lot of lower back pain in the night, followed by pain the legs. And now pain in the entire back. But I guess these must be all ok & an effect of the medicine itself. Thought will keep you informed.
 
sadhna last decade
Yes, 1 sip just once.

200c can be bought online.

30c will not do.
 
sameervermani last decade
Thanks Sameer. I will order it online & inform you when I give it.

Last two days, when my son was with other children, I found him quite normal. No querreels or fighting over anything. He keeps plaing with his toys & others play with theirs. He looks quite alright on that front.
 
sadhna last decade
Also, he is not thin at chest or bloated on stomach. He is all proportionnal. Just overall thin. Quite possible that he's thin because I am also slim.

When he was very young his hair used to look brown(both our hair is black), but now his hair is also black.

The umbilical cord as per pediatrician was not umbilical hernia. It was just a little bit tissue had got left unncut & was to be alright even if left alone. However it was definitely oozing & healed only after nebaself ointent. Like I mentioned earlier, the pediatrician felt it might have been part of eczema. I am not very sure of that.

Just some thoughts.

Looks a lot like Psorinum, why not give it a try?

Yet another note :
The periphery of his eye lids ie. just where eye lashes start has always been blueishin color. The veins on the eye lids have been reddish & there seem little dark circles underneath the eyes - or would say are a very light shade of a mix of red & blue but more visible when he is having cold & cough or is sneezy.
 
sadhna last decade
The improvement in his behaviour might be pointing to Phosphorus helping him.

Go ahead with a single 200c dose as suggested.
 
sameervermani last decade
ok, I am going to do that.

Again, I wanted to share my concern. I read somewhere that only Homeopathy can cure Asthma especially in children. Do you feel we will be able to cure his asthma by way of this constitutional remedy? Is there any other thing I can do to cure his asthma & food allergies? Just realised that he will be going to preschool this fall season & got worried. Can we expediate his healing process in anyway?
 
sadhna last decade
Yes, his asthma can be cured through the correct homeopathic remedy.

Infact, for most chronic diseases , homeopathy is the only system of medicine which offers 'cure' in the perfect sense of the word.

We have to do this slowly, and surely. Haste is the worst thing while prescribing for chronic cases.
 
sameervermani last decade
Thank you for your immediate reply and for taking the pains to explain in details. Thanks indeed. Please notify whether phosphorus 30c will help with his asthma, food allergies or eczema. What is the basic function of this medicine? Also, do I go for the pills or liquid solution? how is it to be given? Thanks again.

Incidentally, 'milk allergy' is a very strong indication of Tub. Milk allergy was not present in the older MMs but the newer ones like Murphy's MM as well as Morisson's Desktop Guide to Keynotes call this property out. Biologically, eczema is a condition which is a result of some other disease, in this case, failure of the immune system to certain bodies, again, in this case, likely milk proteins.

I know Tub was prescribed earlier by another homeopath, but I think it should have been 30c, not mixed with other medicines and a less frequent dosage.

There are several elements of Tub that do not match, but I think milk allergy is an extremely strong match due to its peculiarity. At mentals, irritability, obstinate also matches.

I am also curious if this child has a fear of Cats. If so, again, this is a peculiar symptom, which when combined with milk allergy has a very strong indication for Tub. according to my reading.

So is it not worth trying tub 30c in liquid dose for a few days?

Milk allergy is an indication of the tubercular miasm which without doubt is the dominant miasmatic presentation in this case.

But there are several reasons for not giving tuberculinum

a) Miasmatic nosodes are never given to start a case. They are only given when well indicated remedies fail to give complete benefit or there are no 'complete' indications pointing to a particular remedy. So, they are given to clear up the case, and not to provide cure. So tuberculinum will only be given if there are no indications for any other tubercular medicine, or the well indicated anti-tubercular is failing to provide the cure.

b) It has already been given in the 200c potency and that too for long durations, and whatever work it could have done is done now, and you never repeat a lower potency once a higher one has been allowed to act.

c) There are no mental indications for the use of Tuberculinum here
 
sameervermani last decade
And, FYI, 'Obstinacy and irritability' is there in a 100 remedies, it is not an odd symptom to be picking the similmum by.

The obstinacy of Tuberculinum has a very distinct cruel/malicious feel to it (due to the presence of the syphilitic taint in the evolution of the tubercular miasm)
 
sameervermani last decade
Ok,so:

Based on your response a)
: will you eventually consider Tub if the other remedies fail?

Based on your response b): It seems you will never administer Tub 30c because 200c has been prescribed. I have read many succ. cases where a lower potency has been administered after a higher one fails, and typically when such conditions are very strong at a physical level (which is the case with eczema). I get the feeling you will point me to an aphorism now, that's fine. I am just stating that I have read many such succ. cases (David Little, amongst others) where the homeopath does not have a problem going down in potency.

c) Obstinate and disobedient children is a keynote for Tub. (matches with 'he will do what he has to do' symptom reported earlier) Some other keynotes are hperactivity, needs change and excitement (domaint keynote).

I am curious if analyzing mentals of children who are so small (less than 5 yrs) really works, because they are evolving so very rapidly based on what they are learning around them.

BTW, Sameer, are you a father? Do you have a son/daughter and have observed how soon they can change in the initial years?

This is why I am wondering if focussing on mentals for such a small evolving child is effective, compared to the very strong milk allergy which I believe is the root cause.

Anyhow, not making recc.
I will continue following this thread to see where it eventually is headed..

Sorry, one last pt:
'So, they are given to clear up the case, and not to provide cure'

I am very surprised by this comment. Tub is a popular cure (not clearer) especially for allergy+eczema cases. If you recall, earlier in this thread, Hemraj (or was it Hairloss) claimed curing with Tub. In the book 'treating infant eczema', there are several examples of successful cure with Tub. Finally, homeopaths I have talked to who are local here (classical) also have used Tub for cure for infants where applicable.

So I don't believe they are given only to clear. They can most definetely cure.

Ok,so:

[S] YES , but that is only IF that occurs

Based on your response b): It seems you will never administer Tub 30c because 200c has been prescribed. I have read many succ. cases where a lower potency has been administered after a higher one fails, and typically when such conditions are very strong at a physical level (which is the case with eczema). I get the feeling you will point me to an aphorism now, that's fine. I am just stating that I have read many such succ. cases (David Little, amongst others) where the homeopath does not have a problem going down in potency.

[S] Going down in potency is fine as long as the remedy has not been repeated or allowed to act completely. Going down in potency is used at times to remove the aggravations caused by higher potencies. But not AFTER the higher potency has been repeated 50 times over a period of 2 months, and without any major aggravations . What is the purpose of the lower potency here ? If a higher potency did not evoke any aggravation , there is no need to go down in potency.

c) Obstinate and disobedient children is a keynote for Tub. (matches with 'he will do what he has to do' symptom reported earlier) Some other keynotes are hperactivity, needs change and excitement (domaint keynote).

[S] Obstinate and disobedient is there in Sulphur, Calc. , Calc-p, Sil, Phos, Tarentula, Cina, Veratrum, anacardium , Lycopodiumlachesis..I can go on.. and on...
For a start, the child here is not that irritable or angry. He is just excitable, and does not have a very destructive/malicious streak about him.

I am curious if analyzing mentals of children who are so small (less than 5 yrs) really works, because they are evolving so very rapidly based on what they are learning around them.

BTW, Sameer, are you a father? Do you have a son/daughter and have observed how soon they can change in the initial years?
.

[S] Once again, I am saying milk allergy can be there in any tubercular remedy.

Yes, milk allergy in itself. But skin rash/itching as a result of milk allergy is not with all of them. (example, Nat-c is intolerance for milk, often resulting in diarrhea and similarly there are subtle differences in others when related to the outcome of the milk allergy.

Anyhow, do you have a link that lists all the tubercular remedies? I'd like to read through each one.

As a sidenote, I have been mapping quite a few of the remedies to childrens constitutions and truly believe the general 'mentals' written in standard MMs apply less to children below 5, because these are formative years and many of the symptoms are incorrectly reported by parents and/or it changes very easily. Therefore to analyze such small children, one is severely crippled over the internet. When I read homeopathy book specific for children, they sight these differences and this is also where I have found that in discussions with homeopaths who have a good track record of curing also seem to consistently deviate. Specific to TUB it was interesting to read that often infant/toddler eczema has been cured when keynotes don't match 'well' at mental level (Morisson)

Just reading the threads. Just wanted to again state that my son's disobedience goes away when I relax myself & stop using strong words or acting too firm. If I just show some love & tone down a bit & explain, he immediately listens & responds. For example, I can keep telling him to go & sleep & not to get out of bed, etc, but the moment I tone down, & sweetly tell him to sleep & pat him om head/back, he sleeps in a minute. Its magical. I things if one(at least a family member) tries to get tough with him, he takes it as a challenge.
Also, he is allergic to many food items(bacause of specific proteins) & dust mites and not only milk.
 
sadhna last decade
Yes, I agree that over the internet one is very much crippled, especially in treating children because you cannot even ask questions from the 'patient' directly.

But that does not mean that the mentals are not useful, that just means that mentals are difficult to observe over the internet. If the temeperament does not match the remedy, a cure to a chronic problem will not happen through a remedy.

Phosphorus, Silicea , Nitric Acid , Arsenic , Calcarea Carb , Sulphur , Lycopodium, Psorinum , Tuberculinum , Carcinosin, Iodum , Kali-Carb, Calc-p, Bacillinum and China are some of the leading anti-tuberculars.
 
sameervermani last decade
He is not afraid of cats, dogs or any other furry animals as of now.
But yes he is a little afraid of going alone in the a dark room. Also to note, when he was younger, he used to be scared to loud sounds such as thunder. Nowadays, when he hears a thunder sounnd, he stops doing whatever he is doing & looks at our face to analyse how he should react. If we are calm, he too remains calm & carries on with his work.

Dear Sadhna,

Go ahead with the 200c dose.
