desperate 4 help acne

Whomever has the heart to help me... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

I'm 21 yrs old NEVER had acne problems growing up. I also started birth control around 16 through 20, so I wonder it might've been the preventative.

NOW, b.control free, I started breaking out & don't know how to handle it. I've had blackheads for a while... but now I have a lot more & pimples, uneven tone, oil on chin-cheeks-nose, and AWFUL scars. Also I should add I've suffered from chronic constipation with healthy diet for life. Don't know if that contributes. I also drink a lot of water & cleanse face constantly.

Please help!!! I'm an actor and this is stopping me from working.

Thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please use the homeopathic patient intake form and give us the appropriate information about your case, and hopefully someone here will help you begin correct homeoapthic treatment.

Your remedy is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken orally twice daily. You will also apply the remedy water directly on the lesions on your face as often as is possible by wetting your finger tips with the remedy. You will take precautions not to contaminate the water in the bottle by inserting your fingers into the bottle,

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.

Report your response in 3 days after you commence this therapy aka 'Joepathy'.

It will take up too much of my time to give you an insight on how Arnica 6c in the Wet dose will help you. if you are interested in reading my research on this remedy you can do so by visiting:


I note that you have mentioned that you suffer from Constipation which I did not notice before.

The remedy is Nat Phos 6x dose 2-3 tablets taken after each of 2 meals.

It will also reduce weight by up to 1kg per week safely.
Joe De Livera last decade
much appreciated Joe!

Do you sweat while you sleep? If so, please describe as much as possible.

You wrote:

Can you describe this much more?

You say that you are ''healthy/curvy'. Please describe your body type as much as possible.


I think I see the correct remedy to use in this case. There is nothing about Arnica that will help this case.
Homeopathy International 1 last decade
To H I

'I think I see the correct remedy to use in this case. There is nothing about Arnica that will help this case.'

This is precisely the type of inane statement that you and and the other 'classical' homeopath make in criticizing my therapy to help patients, in this case the Acne of this 21 year old patient who seems desperate for a cure. Her first post gives you an indication of the trauma that she suffers from due to her pimples which have left 'awful scars'.

I must inform you that I have treated thousands of cases of young adults who present this problem of Acne which is common with puberty and the results have been very positive with Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken as prescribed. You must understand that you cannot categorically negate my therapy merely because you were not taught in the College that you attended, that Arnica in the 6c potency used in the Wet dose and also applied topically on the lesions will invariably dry up the pimples, perhaps more effectively than the standard remedies that you would prescribe.

You may like to know that this is another of my 'discoveries' and qualifies therefore for the term 'Joepathy' to which I can see that you two classical homeopaths seem allergic to, in spite of the fact that my Joepathy CURES the patient. Remember that Hahnemann and his followers used a process of experimentation with remedies and they recorded their discoveries for posterity. As far as I am aware, I am the first to discover that Arnica 6c is the ultimate remedy for Acne and your statement: 'There is nothing about Arnica that will help this case', annoys me, frankly.

If you had made your statement a few weeks after this patient had used the Arnica and for some reason my therapy was of no avail, I would have pardoned you but I do object strongly to your statement which I feel is uncalled for.

I do not make similar statements when referring to your therapy or that of David if and when they are prescribed and I would expect that both of you also reciprocate the normal courtesies that obtain on this ABC and other Forums of this type which are open to the world, as your attitude is just not ethical.

I am in exact agreement that the remedy is Calc-C!

As Calc symptoms, I would add talking to self, likes to imagine and the healthy/curvy body type.

Neil, if you'd like to manage the case, that would be most welcome.
Homeopathy International 1 last decade

Please take a two wet doses of Calcarea Carb 200c separated by 4 hours each on a SINGLE DAY ONLY. Repeat it has to be taken on a single day and not be repeated after that.

Put 2 drops / pills of the remedy in some 200 ml of mineral water. Allow it to dissolve for 10 minutes. Shake the bottle vigorously 2-3 times and take one teaspoon from it as one dose.

Throw away the solution after 2 doses.

Let us know of your condition in 7 days from taking the remedy.

Niel Madhavan last decade
Thank you guys.

Do you also suggest nux vomica?
lifetime last decade

Nux vomica is not indicated currenytly. Besides, in Homeopathy, it is always prudent to use just one remedy and do the follow-up based on how symptoms change.

Similar Remedy
Single Remedy
Minimum Dose

These three are the cardinal principles of Homeopathy.

Niel Madhavan last decade
I see. Thank you very much- everyone for your help.

I'll let you all know how it pans out.
lifetime last decade
Please inform us when you've used the Calcarea Carb 200c, and your response to the first dose.
Homeopathy International 1 last decade

Still waiting on shipment, but have been using Arnica in meantime and it doesn't seem to have an effect. I hope the calc. helps because so far I haven't had any major break outs but I'm noticing my skin is more clogged in areas it never use to be. I use to get blackheads around the nose- but now its spread along the cheeks and chin and this is highly unusual for my skin.

I heard drinking Chamomille is good for a slow digestive system, is this true?

Thank you.
lifetime last decade
Any answers to this question on blackheads & constipation help?
lifetime last decade
Calcarea will help both of them. And please STOP ALL OTHER HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES including Arnica. The problems may be increasing because of Arnica.

Niel Madhavan last decade
got the shipment!

okay, so i did what was asked but dont really see any difference but I did wake up in the middle of the night with a really awful ear ache. This is unusual.

Any comments?
lifetime last decade

i was SO hungry and that was weird too. i didn't even think about it till now, and realized how much i ate.
lifetime last decade
Hmmm...too early to comment. Let us wait for atleast a week to assess the impact.

Niel Madhavan last decade
So i keep using it then?

Every 4 hours during day, on skin??

I think it has reduced scaring though.
lifetime last decade
No...it had to be used only for a day. NO REPETITIONS PLEASE. Wait and watch.

Don't use anything externally.
