LACHESIS - broad spectrum antibiotic

Anyone has experience of using Lachesis for bacterial or viral infections?

Could one dose of Lachesis act as a broad spectrum antibiotic for infections?

All infectious diseases.

I have used it successfully for patients with:

1)Dental abcess


3)Gastro intestinal tract infections

4)UTI - here it can be combined with Cantharis 30 potency.
Give ONE dose of Lachesis 200 on first day and then next day Cantharis 30 tds(3 times a day);esp with burning pains

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I was happy to read the results of your experiments with Lachesis and would like to share my own experience in using it to treat Hemophilia which is usually not a disease that can be treated by Homeopathy.

I was consulted for 2 cases in boys whom I have been treating for the last 9 years and I gave them both Arnica 6c in the Wet dose which they take twice daily. This remedy seems to prevent internal clotting of blood if a limb is subjected to some damage resulting in internal bleeding without any laceration of the skin. The affected part usually swells up and is green in colour. The Arnica prevents the swelling and the discolouration.

In the event of an open wound the patient is given Lachesis 200 in the dry pellets. Dose 6 pellets sublingually every 3 hours. This usually stop any bleeding.

I am interested in your use of Lachesis for the many ailments you recorded and it would be useful if you will also record the dosage and potency you used.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, 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 at least 6 times 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 enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

What homoeopathic principles and indications do you use for those prescriptions?

To David

Please be good enough to stay out of this thread as both Jerry and I are only recording our own experiences in using Lachesis in the manner that I have done. You cannot visualize what a blessing my therapy has been to my 2 patients and more especially their parents in comparison to the trauma that they suffered before I took their cases over and returned their sons back to normal in their respective families. You may like to know that one boy used to throw a tantrum whenever he saw the gates of the hospital where they gave Hemofil M which is an extremely expensive drug which is given IV. I was informed that it cost the government around $140 per pack and they invariably had to use 2-3 packs IV to stem the bleeding.

You are well aware that I do not stick to the standard 'classical homeopathic principles and indications' you refer to, and I refuse to treat the 'totality of the symptoms with that elusive SINGLE remedy' which in my opinion does not work to help the patient.

Suffice it to state that my patients are ever grateful to me for my original use of Arnica 6c in the Wet dose and they only use Lachesis 200 in the dry pellets on a SOS basis if the bleeding does not respond to the former remedy.

Even for those who do not use 'single' remedies they follow guidelines based on principles.

I am not sure how Arnica is a remedy for every problem. Also, if Lachesis is not well-suited it can have terrible effects.

The 'blessings' can be visualized only after studying long term effects. If somebody has doubt about the use of principles, it is good to satisfy rather than ask him/her to stay out.

I regret that I am not in the mood to respond to another controversy about my use of Homeopathic remedies which I choose to do in my own way and which has been classified by the classical homeopathic community as 'Joepathy'.

You are invited to type this term into Google to read what others think of my approach to healing. If you feel that you require more information on my therapy you can also add my name 'Joe De Livera' into Google and perhaps even visit my website:


You are also invited to visit the thread 'Joepathy versus David Kempson aka 'brisbanehomeopath' on:


I would like to place on record that my 2 patients who are now both under 10 years of age have benefited from my therapy and as I stated in my post above are living testimony to the efficacy of my Joepathy.
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
Joe you have no right to ask me to 'stay out of this'. Not your thread and as you seem to conviently forget, it is a public forum not Joe's forum.

If there are no principles, no indications, how will anyone use such information? I have asked a simple question so please allow the person I directed it to to answer, if he can. I am aware you cannot answer any questions about homoeopathic principles since you do not practice homoeopathy.

Strange how any thread you end up in, becomes all about you and your supposed discoveries (stolen from real homoeopaths).

As you can see, I am in no mood for your nonsense today.
brisbanehomoeopath 9 years ago

I think you have to start learning how to prescribe on KEYNOTE symptoms that Dr. Kent did.

Certain remedies have affinity for certain parts of the body and are very good for certain particular disease conditions.

I have often compared your responses to my posts to showing the proverbial RED RAG TO A BULL. It seems remarkable how this analogy fits you and your classical brand of Homeopathy.

You stated:
'Strange how any thread you end up in, becomes all about you and your supposed discoveries (stolen from real homoeopaths). '

I must place on record that I do resent your inference that I 'steal' my therapy from real homeopaths. This I consider is hitting below the belt. I do not have to steal the therapy that I have used and prescribed to my patients (free of charge) for the last 30 + years since I was actively involved in helping patients with my Joepathy.

It seems to me that there are many classical homeopaths who copy my Joepathy as it always works to alleviate the ailment that the patient presents while in direct comparison the therapy that you prescribe and that very reluctantly, does not evoke the same curative response from the patient.

If you wish to have a record of my DISCOVERIES in using Homeopathic remedies for ailments that were never used before please visit my website.

I am indeed surprised that you go down to the low level of accusing me of STEALING the remedies I prescribe from types like you who pontificate to be the last word on Homeopathy.

The fact remains that I have saved my 2 Hemophiliac patients from repeated visits to the government hospitals who do not seem to be able to provide any drug to equate my Joepathy.

If you still feel that I have 'stolen' these remedies you are requested to provide proof of the 'theft.'

Hello jerryacu.
I would like to hear more about your treatment of Gastro intestinal tract infection, with the Lachesis.
Can you please mention the symptoms that this patient had.
Have a similar case I struggle with.

Thanks; Parakletos
Parakletos 9 years ago
Dr Kent was very clear - you do not prescribe on the name of the pathology, or on the common symptoms. He was very very clear about this.

Keynotes are fine - they are strong and often peculiar indications for a remedy, drawn from not only the provings but from years of experience by other homoeopaths.

It might be more appropriate for you to learn the difference between a Keynote symptom and a Pathological or Common symptom before directing me to relearn my philosophy. My question to you was not rude, there is no need to be rude or disrespectful to me.

What are your keynotes here?

Dental abscess, Gonorrhea and GIT infections are not keynotes, they are names of pathology. Names are not how we treat in homoeopathy - symptoms are. If you use keynotes then what are they?

The GIT case was a constitutional Lachesis case and Lachesis worked for her acute infection as well(when other remedies failed).

When you use Kent's Repertory in many places only one remedy is listed and if it is a deep acting anti miasmatic remedy, when prescribed, it cures the patient.

I started this thread to hear from others about their experiences with Lachesis in acute infectious diseases.

For those who want to debate on how Homeopathy should be practiced please start your own thread.

Thank you.

The dental abcess case had the keynote or peculiar symptom of aggravation in the morning on waking up from sleep.

While the pain was there during sleep, it did not trouble him much but was very aggravated immediately when he woke up from sleep.

The gonorrhoea patient complained about a left sided weakness and another keynote symptom which I forget. I will refer to the case notes and let you know. This patient was not better after being treated by Allopathy system. 1 government hospital and 2 private clinics of Allopathy were not able to cure him. He was fed up and wanted to try Homeopathy.

Even I struggled with this case with several remedies which brought relief but did not stop the purulent discharge. Only Lachesis stopped it within 3 days.
jerryacu 9 years ago
There we go - a keynote for Lachesis ';Worse on waking from sleep' or in fact any symptom that comes on during sleep and they wake with it. So we know that Lachesis might cure ANY complaint that has such a keynote (assuming other factors in the case agree).

We were not in disagreement at all, we are talking about the same homoeopathy, the same process of finding remedies. The use of unexplainable modalities and generals are the mainstay of traditional homoeopathic prescribing.

Other symptoms which led me to Lachesis for the gonorrhoea patient were: white discharge, paraphimosis, milky discharge, loquacity, left sided weakness in hand and hip.
