Excessive dry skin all your life, noticied a slight improvement in summer but didn't really improve this last summer. Very dry, scaly and crackled appearance, noticed it seems to get worse when I eat starchy foods, like potatoes and junk foods or foods with saturated fat. Extremely tired, no energy or low even after sleeping well.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi give him a silicea 200 (4 drops weekly once ) and also give him spigellia 30 (4 drops in the morning and 4 at night).
Need to analyse the case a bit more, so will get back to you with the right option, and also see what changes he is having after taking the medicines.

Hi Dr.,

Should be able to pick up the spigellia tomorrow or next day. The place about 50 min. from my house is doing an overnight order so hopefully it comes in tomorrow of lastest next day. In the meantime can he take arnica for bodyaches and if so what is the dose? 4 pellets once a day? Also I have him doing the ruta in am and pm just like my son. Should we continue with that or not?

Hi Dr.,

I picked up the spigella for my husband yesterday and he took his first dose this morning.

He has been doing ruta and arnica the last few days. Should he discontinue those or not?

congested last decade
Hi Dr.,

Is it okay for my husband to continue with the ruta? He is still having alot of eye issues, strain and such. He thinks he needs to go and get a stronger prescription for his glasses. I am trying to encourage him to hold off and see how things go. Also he has to wait for his records to be transferred from the old doctor to this new place we took our son. But I think because he is spending so much time on the computer, and getting somewhat fearful of what will happen if he doesn't do something he wants to go to some lenscrafter place and just let their doctor prescribe a new prescription.

So just wondering if he can take the ruta so maybe it will help him out and he won't feel panicked about his eyes. He said the things he has mentioned since being on the spigellia 30, is head itching alot the last couple of days and woke up with a little bit of a sore throat these last 2 days. Overall he seems less anxious and calmer, this is only my opinion. He hasn't been doing the physical labor job for awhile since he is feeling too tired to do that and has been working on some new internet project.

Will update you on me and my son in another post. Thanks!

He can continue with ruta and arnica (only if necessary).
Also if there is an acute lens correction needed then he will have to do it, we cannot hold things with improper power so let him go for the correction.
Continue the medicines and let me know after the schedule.

Hi Dr.,

Okay, he is waiting for his records to be transferred so when that happens he will see the opthamalogist our son went to see and really see what is going on and what he needs. He has been seeing the first optomerist we took our son to for many years and I think my husband really needs to get a 2nd opinion.

What is the schedule for the current remedies of spigella and silicea? Is it 15 days and see how it goes?

congested last decade
Hi Dr.,

Wanted to update you with my husband's condition. He took the spigella for about a week, until we ran out of the pellets (only had one blue tube of them) and he definitely seemed alot better over all. He started stretching, talking of training for a triathlon (which he had never done) and just seem to be more relaxed and motivated. Then we ran out and soon he was off track of the working out, got sick again for a few days, etc.

So I just reordered 2 tubes of the spigella and should have in a couple of days. He has been doing the silicea once a week. So once we get the spigella should he do 3 more weeks to complete the month? Should we stop with the silicea or continue to do once a month?

He did go to a optomerist and got new prescription a week or so ago but then returned last night because his eyes were bothering him alot. They did alot of testing and told him he had alot of issues with conversion and he is going to start doing some eye therapy. Should he also be taking the ruta am and pm each day?

Hi thanks for the mail,
Glad he is showing some changes with the medicine. continue the same treatment. Silicea to be continued regularly as before, and so is spigellia, also with the eye issues take ruta as well each day twice daily.
