Interesting but I thought you were only suppose to take one remedy at a time.
I am also a diabetic.(insulin)

Here you are not asked to take multiple remedies at a time but you are asked to take compatible remedies in alternation.
Anyway, if you are not comfortable, you may take bellis 30c thrice a day for 4 days and later rhus tox 30c in the same way. Being a diabetic is not an issue for these broadband remedies for muscles.

There are actually quite a few remedies for this kind of injury, you need to indiviualize the problem in order to choose the right one. Using remedies on the basis of a named condition isn't often sucessful in homoeopathic prescribing.

However your question was not so much should you take Ferrum, but how to take it if you have decided to. My advice would be to take a single dose each day and assess your progress before repeating.

It is also important to alter the dose every time you take it, as per Hahnemann's instructions in the Organon of Medicine. To do this the dose cannot be dry but must be wet. So you should disolve a single pellet in 1/4 cup of water, and stir thoroughly. It would be even better to place that pellet in a bottle with a dropper, so that you can succuss (hit against the palm of the hand) the remedy. If you use the glass, take 1 teaspoon into the mouth. If you use the bottle, take one drop on the tongue.

Every person has only one state at a time, and only one remedy should be used to match this state. Doing so, also prevents interactions and prevents confusion. Side effects can happen on the wrong remedy and it is important to know which remedy is doing what.

As soon as there is any noticeable aggravation or worsening of the complaint, you should stop. When improvement stops or the condition begins to relapse, it is appropriate to repeat the dose.

Thank you. Yeah and I've had enough side effects to last a life time which is why I'm trying homeopathic.I have allergies to conventional medicine up the ying yang and dont handle surgery very well.
I bought a book called the homopathic bible and it says here that it is better to take the pills and put under your tounge.
So if it was put in water and taken one drop at a time how many times a day or for how long? and what do you mean by altering the dose each time? my bottle says its 30c. so 3 to 6 pills is 30c?
I did the remedy thing with abc and it said to take ferrum. the bottle says take 3 to 6 pills three times a day for 7 days.
I also read that you need to try to match as much of the symptoms to the remedy and bellis doesnt fit me nor does Rhus tox.
I know this other person that responded might have had good intentions but my question wasn't answered.
Yours did.
However, I do have another question for you since you seem to be knowlegable, would the homeopathics respond better for me if I detox from all the conventional meds I was on and if so, what is best for that and how do you take it?
I really really, don't want to have surgery. Thank you.

Oops, Forgot to ask about the succuss.How many times do you hit it on your hand and how much water do you put in the bottle and for your next dose, do you use the stuff from the bottle or dump it out and do another?

Glad you found my answers useful :)

The only 'bible' we have, if it can be called such a thing, is Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine - the original book written by the man who invented homoeopathy. His instructions are quite clear - the dose must be altered every time you take it, and this cannot be done with pills, each one of which is exactly the same as the one before it. The only way a dose can be changed, is by putting it in water and that water 'altered' by sucussion or stirring, sucussion being preferred. Every time you stir the water, or hit the container the water is in, there is a slight vibrational change - 30c becomes 30.01c (I do not actually know what measurement it becomes, we have no way of determining that).

If you do not alter the dose, the vital force, which has already been 'tuned' to 30c, rejects another dose of 30c, and will only be affected by 30.01c or higher. That rejection may take the form of nothing further happening, or more likely, it will become an 'aggravation'. Aggravation can be reduced or avoided by constantly altering the dose.

Does all that make sense?

My advice would be to take one drop each day and assess the reaction - if it is markedly better, or markedly worse, you stop. If it is slightly better or slightly worse you continue, at one dose a day. But you must assess each day. If in doubt stop and reassess the next day.

Dosage is very individual - while I can give these instructions I find that patients have all sorts of different requirements for dosage - diluted into large amounts of water, drops taken directly on the tongue, sniffing the bottle only - case management means working out what is best for that person. So what I am suggesting is a place to start.

I assume you are on painkillers for the injury? There is no need to detox for the remedy to work, and I have no problem with a patient continuing their orthodox medication until we can see that the homoeopathics are working. But it is probably a good idea to begin reducing them, at the very least to see if the medicine is working.

oops another question. can i still take bryonia while taking this>? that stuff is great.Really zaps the pain and I heard it is good for people who are diabetic.
I don't take it very often, just when i have un bearable pain. Good for my headaches too.
bugler 9 years ago

You know Bryonia is also a very well known injury remedy :)

However, don't mix them. It becomes confusing when mixing remedies as to which remedey helps and which produces side effects. It is also possible that remedies can suppress or cancel out each other's effects.

If I were confident in the choice of the remedy for the patient, there is no need to second-guess with 'back up' or complementary remedies. Hard to say with this choice but if you are sure you want to take it, then commit to it and see it through. It is better in the long run to be clear about what has worked and what has not, especially if you need to report to a practitioner later on in your case.
