The ABC Homeopathy Forum


I am 54 years old Male. Dry hard skin. Hot blooded. Suffering from atherosclerosis since 4 years. It is one month over I have a problem of eczema on my foot and hand. I took ayurvedic medicine for my eczema and not benefited. On last week I took arsenic alb 200 three doses in alternative days and I found a very good progress for my eczema. It is now four days over and all my problems came back. Now my problem is severe itching and forcing me to scratch until skin breaks. Applying hot water on the affected area gives a very good relief. Please help me to get rid of this issue. Thanking you

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Amelioration from hot water application is a pointer to Ars Alb. Aggravation after few days of feeling better may be a healing crisis. You may wait for 15 days without taking any remedy and then you may move to 1M potency. There is no need to take any remedy if the healing starts on it's own. You may also provide your details so that we can verify the remedy.

Please copy the Questionnaire from the following thread
and post all the questions here duly answered. On that basis your remedy may be worked out.

Please take three doses of Causticum 200c at a gap of 4 hours for one day (not daily, only one day) and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Please read my posts on the breathing exercises called as Anulom Vilom Pranayam and Kapalbhati Pranayam by following the links given below. Please practise these pranayams regularly for half an hour preferably in a garden early in the morning. You may practise at any other convinient time. The only restriction that you have to follow is not to do these exercises within 4 hours after meals. You can have meals not within 15 minutes after finishing these exercises.

Welcome Joe. If causticum fails we will deploy Graphites. Ars, Caust. and Graphites complement one another and they also look good for the patient's symptoms. If graphites also fails we will think about the miraculous remedy 'Arnica 6c in the Wet Dose'. i think that the patient should switch to joepathy only after going through caust and graphites.

Hi Kadwa,

Thank you for your welcome. As you perhaps are aware, I was associated with the ABC shortly after it was first established by Simon Broadley but was compelled to withdraw from it in 2006 due to the interference from a few pseudo classical homeopaths on this Forum.

I am not qualified in this science but have made a deep study since I was first exposed to it in 1968.
I do not subscribe to the strict method of classical therapy that many homeopaths use but have been successful with my own therapy which these same classical homeopaths derided as 'Joepathy' which strangely enough has found some recognition in the world of Homeopathy today as it has been proved to be very effective in helping and curing many ailments as recorded on this and other Homeopathic Forums.

In the case of this patient, it is obvious that his Eczema is only a side issue as shown by his answers to the questions. I agree with the therapy you have prescribed which should hopefully cure him.

He may ask you to get done the test for TB. You may not worry if you don't have other symptoms. But still you should go by what your doctor says.
kadwa last decade
Thank you dr. Kadwa.
I am planning to perform the tests after 2 days and I will post the result here.

Today I checked the following
ESR 65mm
Bp 100 / 170
Pls comment
kplavunkal last decade
Your bp is
systolic 170
dystolic 100

or it is -
systolic 100
dystolic 70

because generally systolic is written first.

Do you have pain in your body? i think normal esr is upto 40. What your doctor says about the esr count.
