scar tissue & keloid

I have a raised scar, keloid-like, located under arm area which formed after surgery. I also have some internal scar tissue in left breast formed after repeated needle puncture from biopsy.
I've tried Kai Iod for a period of time with no change. Also tried Silicea for 1 wk with no change.
Can someone suggest another remedy?
Thank you.

Hi Maheeru,
Thanks for your reply.
Could you please advise on dosage. How many pills per dose?
Thank you.

Please take 3-5 drops per dose if it is liquid and 5 pills if in pills form.

Thanks Mahfooz.

Yes tweety you can follow the dosage as Mahfooz has laid out. Also keep in mind, that scar tissues take some time to resolve.

Dear friends

I tried thiosinaminum in a few cases of keloids and there is abosolutely no change even after a month's usage of low potencies.

Did you have any real successes in your practice? If so, I would like to know the details.

Both Boericke and Clarke talk about using it hypodermically by injecting it into the skin directly along with oral usage.

I don't know about its efficacy. Throw some light on this aspect too.

This is the info I got from the net.


Thiosinaminum has removed scar tissue, adhesions, tinnitus, & more

“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. —The Bible, Matthew 17:20

Thiosinaminum, a remedy derived from a chemical in mustard seed oil, is not used often by homeopaths, but its potential for moving/removing/ dissolving unwanted tissue is great. While it does not appear to have had a formal homeopathic proving, it came into use in homeopathy via “old school” doctors who were using it full strength internally and externally to help dissolve scar tissue, adhesions, or growths in various parts of the body.

Homeopaths began using Thiosinaminum in low potency homeopathic preparations with some excellent results. Clinical reports include healing of old scars; adhesions (stuckness) of joints, ligaments, tendons; dupuytren’s contracture (thickening of tendons of the hand); strictures (abnormal narrowing/stenosis) of the rectum, urethra, or esophagus; tinnitus particularly when caused by scar tissue in the eardrum; enlarged lymph glands; scarring of fallopian tubes from pelvic inflammatory disease and uterine tumors; and scleroderma. A common thread running through many of these cases is that some kind of injury or inflammation resulted in abnormal healing where scar tissue formed and caused a thickening or caused some internal body parts to stick together—and low potency, repeated doses of Thiosinaminum produced results.

David Riley, MD, gave an excellent overview of Thiosinaminum, including details of five successful cases, in the International Foundation for Homeopathy’s Proceedings of the 1994 Professional Case Conference (available at homeopathic booksellers). Using daily doses of Thiosinaminum 12c, he treated three women with infertility, pain, and scarring from pelvic inflammatory disease; each experienced improvement such as reduced pain, healthy pregnancy, or a dissolving of scar tissue in the fallopian tube verified by hysterosalpingogram (a type of uterine X-ray). Dr. Riley treated a man who was slated for surgery to remove part of his colon because of a stricture; after treatment with Thiosinaminum 12c for two months, a follow-up sigmoidoscopy found no sign of the stricture. Another patient achieved about 50% improvement in his ringing of the ears (tinnitus), and a hearing test showed 30–40% improvement in hearing after treatment with Thiosinaminum.

Dr. Riley stated: “I believe Thiosinaminum is not just a small remedy. It is one that will require considerably more clinical use and shared experience over time before we can know if it has a significant application beyond the physical pathology of scarring.” He noted that Thiosinaminum may be most similar, in terms of physical pathology, to Silica, the other remedy noted for healing scar tissue. Based on his own experience, he postulated that depression, alternating moods, aversion to consolation, increased urination at night, and seasonal allergies may also be part of the Thiosinaminum symptom profile, but he acknowledged that until more is known, the key to choosing this remedy is still the physical pathology of scarring.

You won’t find much information about this small remedy in most homeopathic reference books, and it’s not well-represented in the repertories, but keep it in mind when you need to move a small or large mountain of scar tissue!

Dear Murthy Thanks for your inputs.

I've seen results in scar tissues/keloids with Thios. or graph or silicea followed by fluoric acid all in low dilutions.

Regarding scar tissues what I've learnt from other homeopaths and what I've seen is ---it takes long period (sometimes matter of months) to resolve.

Hi Meheeru,
I've been using Thiosinaminum for a few wks now. I still have enough supply for about another wk. I haven't noticed any change yet. Should I keep taking it or try something else? Please advise.
Thank you.

Hi Tweety

May be its premature to expect results as scars take long time to heal. I guess you're using Thiosinaminum 6x. Finish the supply and get Thiosinaminum in 6c and 30c and try them one after another. For 6c dosage will be same. But when you move on to 30c only one dose per day. If you develop any new annoying symptoms please stop and report.

Externally you can apply calendula cream thrice daily on surgical scars. Also you can apply vitamin E oil on a regular basis on all the scars.

Hello - so glad I found this forum!

I have multiple sites of scar tissue. One from a skin graft 7 years ago and one from an abdominal surgery 2 years ago. The skin graft is tight and restricting with some minor pain on the edges a few times a month. The abdominal is raised, very itchy, with periodic pain (like needles). I also deal with chronic fatigue for the past 4 years. Any suggestions are much appreciated!
