Sequential Therapy

Dear All,
I have read about the sequential use of nosodes psor,med,tub and lueticum in high potencies, i would like to know how do you choose the remedy according to the moment or place in the year....i know that this is not classical homeopathy, but are looking for an input from someone who has used this therapy,
thanks a lot,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I have never done this & shall not dare to play with pt's life like this.
Even the nosodes are to be given strictly as per the indications pointing to that particular nosode.
Otherwise it can do lot of harm.

Dear Albert,
If this is homeopathy at all, it may be 6th or 7th edition /Organon/ ;-) but for what it's worth: The Swiss physician Dr. Jean Elmiger prescribes those four nosodes at the very end of his sequential therapy, after all the patient-individuated steps, to remove miasms he thinks he has found to be universal. In his book /Rediscovering Real Medicine/ (Element Books, 1998) he writes: "I usually start the EII cycle at the autumn equinox with Psorinum LM, then Tuberculinum LM at the winter solstice, Medorrhinum LM at the spring equinox and Luesinum LM to end the cycle at the summer solstice." Physicians trained in Dr. Elmiger's method are listed on his website.

So far I have "used this therapy" only as a patient treated by methods similar to those Dr. Elmiger describes in the book. I am interested in fostering discussion about this and other methods to address "layers" of pathology (cf. Tinus Smits, etc.) but it may be beyond the scope of this forum. Please feel free to contact me through my profile.

Dr. Elmiger is still alive, by the way, and recently responded to an email query of mine.

Best regards,

Dear Madscientist37,

Thank you for your post.In fact I came to know Dr. Elmiger because I tried almost every polichrest without succes.
My case is a complicated one.
As sharing an experiences i had, I consulted a very good homeopath in my country Argentine, who uses as follows, he determines the miasm you are "vibrating"/"resonating" with and along the constitutional prescription everyday from monday to saturday, the sunday he gives the proper miasmatic remedy in a degree less than the constitutional....for example I went to see him taking calcarea M and i got a prescription of carcinosinum 200 every sunday.

Please if you have any idea whatsoever to "move" a case, please let me know, my email is in my profile.

Good luck!

Dear Madscientist,

Do you have any other experience related to sequential therapy? I have just ordered "Rediscovering Real Medicine".

Dear Albert,

I wonder, did you continue the sequential homeopathic treatment? I would be interested in the results, if possible.

Dear Lajhar,
Really never got to try the method proposed...what I think that could be valid in reference to hom. nosodes is to identifiy wich one is the patient in it and use one dose before give the similar/simillimum.-But even tought is not clasical homeopaty....

Dear Albert,
Thank you for your prompt reply.
Actually I do not care anymore if a method is considered "classical" homeopathy, I care about the long term results :)

ps. I used to believe my former homeopathy teachers, who looked down every method which is "not classical" homeopathy: tautopathy, use of Bowel nosodes, sarcodes, the use of tissue salts, vaccine detox, prescribing two remedies at once, etc.
Then I realized that they treat people for years without any significant result. I even know a case, who has been treated for 10 years. So I have become somewhat skeptic and I am trying to look up "new" methodologies as well.

I have been prescribed 2 remedies at ounce, sometime ago...it is very controversial the theme, especially for the more orthodox prescribers, but try to find the original paragraph 274b by hahneman and there you have it....Even using one remedy in a high centesimal potency and along other/s in low decimals potencies like schuessler,s salts or anthrposophy.....
Albert 5 days ago

I think I have found it, but only in the 5th edition:
"§ 272 Fifth Edition
In no case is it requisite to administer more than one single, simple medicinal substance at one time.1

1 Some homoeopathists have made the experiment, in cases where they deemed one remedy homoeopathically suitable for one portion of the symptoms of a case of disease, and a second for another portion, of administering both remedies at the same time; but I earnestly deprecate such a hazardous experiment, which can never be necessary, though it may sometimes seem to be of use."

Yes, I know a lot of homeopaths are against prescribing a "second" remedy, even if it is prescribing the first remedy in high potency, and the second one in low potency (eg. tissue salt, sarcode or drainage remedy).

May I ask, did you experince anything peculiar when you were prescribed two remedies at the same time?
lajhar 4 days ago

Yes, I can comment on the "2 remedy theme" in my case.-I think I didnt feel any diff. because may be there were not the correct combination.What I found most usefull so far is using only one remedy (homeopathic one) and also a combination of anthroposophical nature (low decimal potencies together)

If you feel that I could help you , you can write me at beto241 in gmail.

Hi Lajhar

It'd be interesting to learn about Dr.Aegidi who almost got Samuel Hahnemann to revise Organon endorsing two remedy theme. But due to stiff resistance from the fraternity who did not want to compromise on ideology, it was dropped.

I have seen three or four nosodes given at the same time by other homeopaths and the results have been invariably uninspiring. But remedies have been used two, three, four at a time and people have seen results still. But two is good than three/four. When people know what they do even combination remedies have helped but can the process cure entirely is a moot question because closures always are single remedies.

Sequential therapy in some quarters is called Heilkunst and even classical homeopathy/holistic healing in german means Heilkunst. Well in sequential therapy, remedies including sarcodes and other preparations(even allopathic medicines/vaccines) are given to negate a lot of trauma in the reverse order they have appeared. But in normal homeopathy, when currently indicated remedy or remedies do not show results, homeopaths always try to unblock obstacles including trauma and Never Well Since themes. There is only a slight difference. Interestingly a few weeks ago, a client asked if I could treat her and her family in HeilKunst way and I said I would not do it for the sake of it, but if need be I would employ remedies to negate past trauma, she was not ok with my statement saying all she had read until that point had suggested that Heilkunst is 90% more efficacious than normal homeopathy so she would go to a Heilkunst practitioner :) People are so taken in by 'terms'.

P.S: There is a case of Burnett where he employed two remedies for trauma to cure tumour of which one was to treat a fall that occurred eight years ago.
