This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
tuberculinum is a nosode and it acts best given in 200 and above potency.

one dose of tub 1m will, in all probability, will not cause any aggravation. however, you can go for 200c as well but not lower than this.

its not recommended to give nosodes lower than 200c.

Good Morning,

This is the update.

On Mar 12 at 8pm bedtime I gave him one dose (3 pellets under tongue) of TUBERCULINUM Bov 1M.

Mar 13 - less coughing in the morning no other changes

Mar 14 - much less coughing in the morning. no other changes

Mar 15 - coughing returned with nasal mucus, but he was able to blow the mucus out until he was breathing through both nostrils. good mentally and emotionally. coughing and congestion with blowing sinus' clear continued throughout day.

Mar 16 - still coughing in morning. slight resisting getting dressed after breakfast. coughing/blowing all day and in a good gentle mood.

Mar 17 - 19 same coughing clearing sinus' and gentle mood.

Mar 20 - 21 went to visit father, when returned still in good mood, though the improvement in the congestion seems to have slowed somewhat.

NOTE: approx 1 week before the remedy a sore developed on the right side corner of his mouth. outside, just barely in the crease but enough to make opening his mouth to eat painful. the sore has since moved further toward the cheek and away from the mouth but if it is shrinking the change is imperceptible.

He seems quite at peace with the world, and even when a playmate did something to cause offense, my son was able to speak to the other child then come calmly to me for further assistance.

Shall we continue to wait and watch this single dose?

I apologize for not getting back to you at the 7 day point, for my computer was out of order.

Thank you so much

do you think this single dose is still holding if you notice his mentals?

based on the return of symptoms, you may give another dose of tub 1m after about a month of the first dose.

write to me after 15 days so that we can decide if he would need another dose of tub.
rishimba last decade
yes, the dose may repeat after a month for two-three months and if the the symptoms return then repeat it. if the symptoms return after long time then repeat it in the following manner.
One dose Morning + one dose Evening + one dose Morning(Such manner prevent aggrevation)

Rishimba, Dr. Riaz,

My son has continued to improve since my last posting. He has no congestion at all. He is at complete peace. He sleeps very well and eats very well. He is loving and affectionate.

God Bless for my sweet healthy boy returning.

If I see any return of symptoms I will post here.

Thank you so very much

p.s. Rishimba, I will post my condition to my thread.

06/11/2010 - still complaining of pain in right foot. increased sinus congestion sniffling sneezing, but very good disposition

06/20/2010 -exceptionally good health. Camping with dad, week at grandma's, big appetite, content happy disposition, bee sting on foot today at park, no
major reaction but cried and said it hurt, pain sometimes moved to other toes

07/06/2010 - complained of “cold back” his lower spine was chilled so he dressed himself in warm pants, winter sweater, slippers and mittens this morning, did not complain of this rest of day

08/29/2010 - has been complaining of foot pain off/on for some weeks, sneezed a few times in morning last week, coughed a few times also, Dr. Allen adjusted his feet/ankles over weekend, has been very happy to be in first grade

08/31/2010 - up many times during night with very sore throat TUBERCULINUM 1M

09/01 -05 - very good disposition despite this cold and cough, thick nasal mucus he is able to blow out

09/06 -07 -continued gradual improvement in congestion, one or two emotional frustrated outbursts that were mild and short, a bit hyperactive, but clear in mind and able to follow directions, expressed sadness this evening about pet goldfish that died 2 years ago.

I realized after giving him the most recent dose of TUB that it was the forth dose and that I should have posted here first. Have I made a mistake?
Was he only to receive 3 doses one month apart?
And then I also did not give the forth dose as morning / evening / morning.

Should I take any steps at this point or just continue to watch and update this post?

Thank you so very much
jbpeanut last decade
Go on trying one or the other remedies. When fed up then provide your 1.Date, 2. Time and 3. Place of birth. May be I have some answer?
RSGUPTA last decade
please not repeat the medicine and wait for result. it is a deep acting remedy and work for long time. if needed then repeat after two to three months.
(expressed sadness this evening about pet goldfish that died 2 years ago.)
if he still expresses sadness about his pet goldfish then give Ignitia 30 morning+after noon for three days.
Dr Riaz last decade
Dr Riaz,

Though he has not spoken of the pet fish, tears did come very easily for him at school yesterday. (I volunteer there on thursdays so watched him all day)
He is also experiencing much frustration with his homework, pounding his fists on the table, throwing his pencil. He is able to recover with much intervention from me, but it concerns me. I have not seen this behavior in him since he last took TUB in the spring-time. Usually he enjoys his homework.
Shall I expect these emotional outbursts to fade away in time, as they did last spring?

Thank you
jbpeanut last decade
Please wait, I hope these sypmtoms will disappear with the passage of time. if he did not spoken about the pet fish Repeatedly, no need of Ignitia.
Dr Riaz last decade
Dear JBPeanut,

How your son position now
Dr Riaz last decade
Dr Riaz,

Thank you for your inquiry.

My son is quite well. We just returned from a week of camping in the forest. He was very healthy and strong all week. He was emotionally hurt when some of the other children were behaving inappropriately (throwing dirt and rocks) and further hurt when they would not hear his request to stop.

These are my note from before we left to camp:

09/17/2010 - got straight into homework before breakfast, decided to do extra sheets to “get it all done” but got quite upset and cried over his struggle with new words, and then seemed to be crying for no reason other than to cry. Ate breakfast then felt better.
Less fidgeting, seems more able to stop when I remind him.

09/19/2010 - coughing and 1 sneeze upon waking. good/great all day, complained of pain in right side of neck starting afternoon until bedtime

09/21/2010 - cough once sneeze twice in morning, neck still hurting

09/22/2010 - happy boy, one or two sneeze, but still getting upset to tears when reading late afternoon

09/24/2010 - very happy, calm, no congestion sneezing or coughing, calm with schoolwork

09/25/2010 - coughing some after waking for 10 mins, clear mentally and emotionally, then crying and stomping when asked to clean room at same time of day that my symptoms began to return (2:30 pm)

So it seems all is well for now.
Shall I post again in 2 weeks? Or only when symptoms return?

Much Gratitude
jbpeanut last decade

Sorry for so late answering as my DSL net work was out of order and also have some urgent work.
If the case is not cleared then used Phosphorus 200C (Morning+Night+Morning) and wait for 15 days as already recommended by Rishimba.
Dr Riaz last decade
Dr. Riaz,

He slept alot for a few days. Then wanted to go out and excercise alot for a few days, and now for a few days has been eating like a horse.
He is in great mental and emotional disposition also.
We will just enjoy this and post if anything comes up.

Dr. Riaz,

My sons condition has worsened again. Just one month after the last bout of congestion and tantrums. During that time in Nov./Dec. he lost 4 baby teeth.

For the past 7 days his sinus' have grown more and more congested and the tantrums have increased in intensity. Last night the tantrum came on at a family party when he lost at a card game, and was intense enough that I held him really tight in my lap (he responded well to that) wrapping him in a little ball for 10 minutes.
This morning he woke with a barking cough and is blowing green mucus.

Do you have any recommendations?

Thank you
jbpeanut last decade
