Arsenicum Album: $6.59

Arsenicum album 6x - SAFE??

I am a victim of chronic coryza for the last 2.5 years.
I am taking arsencium album 6x with the consultancy of homeopathic doctor. i am taking it for the symptoms of my chronic nose problems which including chronic coryza, sneezing, alternating nose side blockage, discharge, running nose and blockage etc. my dose is 15 drops 4 times a day. i have been using this remedy for over 3 months.

My query is whether it is safe to take arsenic album 6x repeatedly, because i have heard that ars.alm is a carcinogenic and it causes malignancy. should i continue with the dosage 15 drops 4 times a day. The american FDA allows only 8x of ars alb considered to be safe in the drinking water. ars alb 6x is a less diluted form . please advice me should i continue

also, the status of my symptoms is when i started the remedy i had no change in the symptoms for 2 months after that suddenly the symptoms got better for 5 days and then the symptoms came back again. currently whats happening is that the symptoms go out for 2 or three days and come back again, stays for 3 or 4 days and goes again and vice versa. is this the effect of the medicine? should i discontinue ? what to do? My doctor is not available currently he is outside the country.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Even if it is correct remedy for you, the way you are taking it is not correct. It may lead to serious consequences if you continue taking it for prolonged periods. I suggest you stop it immediately and wait for a couple weeks and then seek advice of expert homeopaths at this forum.

Thank you very much sir. i'll stop that right from the word go. will need your assistance in the future. thanks indeed

I am simply amazed at the therapy that homeopaths, presumably classically qualified, prescribe to their patients.

I am glad that another member has averted disaster for the patient and commend his prompt action by stopping his continued usage of Ars Alb 6x in the dosage indicated which I consider dangerous.

I believe that Calc Carb 200 in the Wet dose taken twice daily can help the patient.

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.

Thanks Mr Joe for your kind words. please also let me know should i start your prescribed treatment straight away or do i have to wait for two weeks as Mr. Maraheem has said earlier in this post.

Manny thanks indeed.

There is no reason why you cannot start on my therapy immediately as long as you do not take the Ars Alb 6x which should never have been prescribed.
Joe De Livera last decade
I will get the remedy and the water from the market and follow your instructions. Mr joe, is spring water the same water which is marketed by the nestle/aquafiNa/vey with the label of mineral water/pure drinking water etc? and please also tell the gap of hours between the two tablespoon doses of the remedy.

will keep in touch with u through this forum

shah.fibre last decade
First dose on an empty stomach.

Second dose before lunch

Third dose before bed.

I know that I prescribed it twice daily but in your case you will benefit by taking it thrice daily for a week and twice daily thereafter for another week when hopefully your problem should be cured.
Joe De Livera last decade
I will get the remedy in a day or two and start it accordingly

Thank you very much

Did you shake the bottle as instructed before every dose?

'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.'

If you did not do so, this may be the reason why you did not respond, as you should have to my therapy.
Joe De Livera last decade
Yes sir i shaked it hard for a minimum of 10 times. and followed ur directions word by word as prescribed.

Sir, what to do now?
shah.fibre last decade
Continue with the CC therapy and add Ars Alb 200c in the Wet dose taken twice daily and report.

Leave an hour between remedies.
Joe De Livera last decade
thanks dr. i'll do that
shah.fibre last decade
Now its second week for CC, is it on empty stomach and before bed?

u said ars alb 200 2 times is that also empty stomach and before bed?
shah.fibre last decade
You can take the Ars Alb half hour after the CC
Joe De Livera last decade
Hi sir Joe

i have started the ars album 200 alongwith the CC as prescribed, and i am extremely delighted to tell u sir that by the time i took the second dose of ars alb. my sneezing is turned off with a very little coryza its now been 30 hours without sneezing

need your further instructions.

secondly, sir i have been taken omeprozole (proton pump inhibitor) for heart burn for the last 30 days. wanna ask can i contine omeprozole with CC and ARS.ALB 200 would there be any antidoting?

Thanks and best regards
shah.fibre last decade
shah.fibre last decade
Glad to note that the AA 200 and the CC 200 have both helped to settle your Coryza problems.

Please note that you cannot take them on a daily basis and I would like you to alternate them by taking one dose of each in the morning with the other in the evening. In other words you will only take just ONE dose of each daily.

I was horrified to learn that you are taking a PPI for the last month. Stop it immediately and replace it with Nat Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals, especially dinner.
Add Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

Report response in 48 hours.
Joe De Livera last decade

what i understand is

on daily basis.

i will quit the PPI and get your prescribed medicine. infact, this ppi is also costing me too much. will report u after 48 hrs

Thanks indeed.

Hi Dr joe

I was unable to come online due to some technical issues with my internet line. please have a view on my 5 days symptoms:

for the first two days the symptoms were absolutely vanished but 3rd, 4rth and 5th day the symptoms returned very bad. violent sneezing (15-25 sneezes ) throughout the day and coryza. and this condition is still there. sir i am very depressed due to this chronic problem

i am still taking CC200 ONE DOSE > MORNING
ARS.ALB200 ONE DOSE>EVENING need further instructions

Nat phos 6x is working nicely for my heart burn symptoms.

Many thanks
shah.fibre last decade
Glad to note that you have finally discovered that Nat Phos 6x is helping you.
I presume that you will now stop the PPI drugs that you have been using up to now.

I regret to inform you that I cannot help you to stop your sneezing which ceased for a few days but returned later.

I hope that the classical homeopaths on this forum can help you.
Joe De Livera last decade
You may continue Nat. Phos if it is helping but I suggest you stop other remedies immediately. If you need further help from classic homeopaths, post your remaining symptoms after a gap of at least one week.
maraheem last decade
No problem Dr. Joe Many Thanks for your time.

To Mr maraheem
Yes Dr. I found nat phos a very good remedy for my heart burn suggested by Mr Joe. and its a significantly less burden on my pocket too.

Thanks Docs for your precious time.
