Retinal haemorrhage cured by Homoeopathy - Dr. Deoshlok Sharma

Retinal haemorrhage is a disorder of the eye in which bleeding occurs into the retina.
The retina is a thin disc-shaped layer of light-sensitive tissue on the back wall of the eye. Its job is to translate what we see into neural impulses and send them to the brain via the optic nerve. A retinal haemorrhage can be caused by hypertension, retinal vein occlusion (a blockage of a retinal vein), or diabetes mellitus (which causes small fragile blood vessels to form, which are easily damaged). Retinal haemorrhages can also occur due to shaking, particularly in young infants (shaken baby syndrome) or from severe blows to the head. And impairment of vision.
Retinal haemorrahage and gradualy loss of vision will be cured from Bothrops lanceolatus 30C daily one dose early in the morning for a week and if you fail to get the result in a month then again repeat this medicine after a month for 7 days ..
I cured no. of cases by this medicine only….

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Dr Deshlok,I am suffering from this disease exactly.I am 63,male,suffering from Diabetes TypeII since last 14 years..Taking Insulin and meds for Blood pressure including blood thiner Asprin.
My right eye was treated with Argon Laser about 6-7 years ago.But Hoemorrhage has occured in left eye.Now Drs say that in this condition Laser theropy can not be applied.They advise 3 injestion in retina which worth about 90,000/-
I can not stop Alopathic medicines as it is risky.Try to keep BP and BG in limits and succesfully doing it.
My question is that whether I can use this Homeo med: along with my usuall meds?If yes,please advise me how long and in which potency?I will be thankful.

Dear Doctors,

Please share more of your experiences on this subject of great importance.

I have been using Phosphorus, Arnica and Hypericum...with positive results, but some vision blurring still remains.Although improvement is 80 to 85 percent.

Would like to know more about positive experience of other experts.

Has some one tried Symphytum for this purpose...I have read somewhere that it works.

Best regards,

Hi All

My two cents worth in this regard.

In about ten cases that i find in my casebook pertaining to retinal haemorrhage, i have not been required to use any medicine other than Arnica.

Normally, I start with 6c potency and go upto 1CM in the course of some 3 months.

Average duaration for cure has varied from 3 weeks-5 months.

Fondest Regards

To Deoshlok

Thank you for reminding us about Bothrops Lanceolatus 30c for the treatment of blindness caused by Amaurosis or Haemorrhage in the eye.

I had read about this remedy many years ago but had forgotten all about it as it is rarely that a patient presents this ailment.

I have always maintained that it is through this process of sharing that we who are dedicated to healing can ensure that this precious Science of Homeopathy can move forward. As you are aware, I have often been criticized for sharing my many discoveries like Arnica 6c for the treatment of Diabetes and Nat Phos 6x for the treatment of Obesity merely because these remedies are not listed in the current classical texts.

Those who have used these remedies have testified that Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily can reduce Blood Sugar levels by up to 33%. Those who use Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken twice daily can expect to reduce their weight by up to 1Kg per week.

It is my hope that other Homeopaths too will follow our example and share their discoveries or in the case of Bothrops L which is a listed remedy will record their findings for the benefit of those like me who had completely forgotten about this remedy.

I am copying below Boricke on this remedy and the listing under eyes reads:

'Eyes.--Amaurosis; blindness from hæmorrhage into retina. Hemoralopia, day blindness, can hardly see her way after sunrise; conjunctivial hæmorrhage.'


Yellow Viper

Its venom is most coagulating, (also Lachesis). We should expect to find under these remedies the symptomatology of thrombosis, also thrombotic phenomena, as hemiplegia, aphasia, inability to articulate (Linn J. Boyd).

Broken-down, hæmorrhagic constitutions; septic states. Great lassitude and sluggishness; hæmorrhages from every orifice of the body; black spots. Hemiplegia with aphasia. Inability to articulate, without any affection of the tongue. Nervous trembling. Pain in right big toe. Diagonal course of symptoms. Pulmonary congestion.

Eyes.--Amaurosis; blindness from hæmorrhage into retina. Hemoralopia, day blindness, can hardly see her way after sunrise; conjunctivial hæmorrhage.

Face.--Swollen and puffy. Besotted expression.

Throat.--Red, dry, constricted; swallowing difficult, cannot pass liquids.

Stomach.--Epigastric distress. Black vomiting. Intense hæmatemesis. Tympanitis and bloody stools.

Skin.--Swollen, livid, cold with hæmorrhagic infiltration. Gangrene. Lymphatics swollen. Anthrax. Malignant erysipelas.

Modalities.--Worse, right side.

Relationship.--Compare: Toxicophis.--Moccasin Snake (pain and fever recur annually, after bite from this snake, and sometimes change location with disappearance of first symptoms. An unusual dryness of skin follows the bite. Œdematous swellings and periodical neuralgia. Pain travels from one part to another). Other snake poisons, notably Lachesis.

Trachinus,-Stingfish (intolerable pains, swelling, acute blood, poisoning, gangrene).

Dose.--Sixth to thirtieth potency.

I note that no one has responded to your post and since your dad's case is urgent I shall copy Deoshlok's advice below to a patient with the same problem.

dear mr. dhrajbatra,
pls continue the Bothrops lanceolatus 30C at least three times ina day for a month and report...

dr.deoshlok sharma

It is essential that you give your dad some medicine to reduce his Blood Pressure and you are advised to consult a doctor for the drugs necessary to treat this problem which is obviously the reason for his Retinal Hemorrhage.

You can also use Arnica 30c in the Wet dose twice daily to help his BP but it must be understood that this remedy alone cannot do so in the short term.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

Dear Dr. Deoshiok Sharma,

Dear Dr. Deoshiok Sharma,

What can be done for retinal hemorrhage with retinal detachment? My mother DM II X 25 yrs suffered a retinal hemorrhage ~6 days ago possibly due to retinal detachment. We are in desperate need of your advise.

Respectfully, Alice
avhill last decade
Try Bothrops as recommended by Dr. Deoshlok.

Other possibility is OSmium Can 200. Specially when eye pressure is high.

Where has the hemorrhage occurred...in the Central vein, artery or capillaries. For each there is a separate med.

Punkaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Correction: Correct name of the med is Osmium Metallicum 200

Will bring down eye pressure and save the Retina. Hemorrhage takes place invariably when eye pressure is high.

This is a follow up report regarding my mother (h/o DM II on insulin therapy suffered retinal hemorrhage without retinal tear or detachment). She has completed 7-day course of Botrops Lanceolatus 30c in am yesterday. She also took a 7-day course Arnica Montana 30c trice daily & Phosphorus 30 c trice daily. She has regained ~50% of vision loss; what should she continue to take if anything to further aid in healing. Thank you for your response.
avhill last decade
Failed to also mention that the Intra-ocular pressure remains within normal limits. I'm also interested in controlling her blood sugar levels as this seems to have been the culprit. As well as prevention of further episodes.
avhill last decade
To Avhill

I have pioneered in the use of Arnica 6c in the Wet dose to help Diabetics Types I and II to control their Blood Sugar and the reports that I have received from patients is that about 80% have succeeded in reducing their BS levels from 10% to 33%.

Diabetes is a disease that cannot be cured but it can be controlled with Insulin in the case of Type I and with Metformin or equivalent drugs for Type II. When the Arnica therapy is started patients have confirmed a drop of BS level within 12 hours or 2 doses and this continues as long as the drugs and the Arnica are used on a daily basis.

One patient whom I am treating currently reported that his BS level was helped better with Arnica 6c in the Wet dose and he was an extreme case with BS level of 535 for which he was first on Insulin and later on Metformin 850mg twice daily to which he responded with an acute attack of Dermatitis. He was warned not to stop the drug when taking the Arnica but he did so due to his extreme response to the drug and he reported a few weeks later that he was able to bring his BS down to 100 with Arnica 6c alone taken twice daily without the Metformin.

In your mother's case you too can use the Arnica 6c in the Wet dose twice daily which should be made precisely as follows to control her BS levels:

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

Please report her progress of her BS level using Arnica 6c alone in a few days.
Joe De Livera last decade
Mother DM II x 25 yrs was DX as having had 'vitreous Hemorrhage' not Retinal Hemorrhage. Completed Botrops Lanceolatus 30c as directed x 7days for 2 months but has not yet regained vision acuity continues with blurred vision. Should she repeat dose of Botrops Lanceolatus for a Third Month????? Please advise. Her BS levels not yet stable.

Dr. Deoshlok,

My wife is diagnosed with Retinal Occlusion. She is a doctor herself and so are everyone in her family. I would like to try your medicine, with a bit of caution. More ever I would like to meet you first and be consulted. Would you tell me how can I get your appointment. I am in Chennai but can travel.

Dear Dr. Sharma

Following your advice I have started taking Bothraps 30 since yesterday 3 times a day. I have problem of RVO and have had 2 LUCENTIS injections so far. I hope that I see good results soon from Bothraps. I have a few questions for you and I would appreciate if you could respond

1. Is the improvement experienced sustained and permanent?
2. I do not have diabetics but little BP under control with 1 LOSAR H per day.
3. Should I observe any dietary restrictions when on medication?
4. Should I follow a specific schedule for medication during the day like early morning, before or after meals etc..

Best Regards

Hi Dr,
My mother was diagnosed with diabetes an high blood pressure, In the year 2010 she started having retinal bleeding and she has undergone lazer surgery which has made her eyesight worse. The doctors were able to stabilize the right eye but they have given up on the left eye which has been slowly regaining vision. Two days ago the right eye started to bleed again. What is the remedy for retinal bleeding?
We have been able to control her sugars but not her blood pressure. She has been taking Enapril 5mg for her pressure.
