Dr. Khan,
I have taken Alumen 4X 2 pellets dissolved 3 x's a day for 5 days and am sad to report I see no change in my condition. For the past 5 days I have taken sitz baths with epsom salts and apply pressure to drain the absess, it drains but there is just more the next day. The color of pus is still the same yellow light green. I am feeling a little hopeless at this point and not sure what to do next. If you have any further suggestions I would love to hear them if you don't then I thank you very much for the advice and prayers you have given me.
Thank you.

Ok, you may email me as it is very important to arrive at a correct remedy.

It is for sure that your body is producing more pus right now than the remedy can handle.

So, what have you been eating in breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks for the last 5 days?

Also, please tell me about your stress and anxiety for the last week.

For breakfast I usually eat toast and eggs or oatmeal. I drink about 2 cups of coffee in the mornings. I snack on fruit, nuts, and crackers. I mainly drink water throughout the day. Lunch and dinner vary. Usually a sandwich for lunch cheese, meat, and vegetables. Dinner this week I have had salads with grilled vegetables, hot dogs, spare ribs with cornbread. Generally a mix a vegetables and meat for dinner. I have avoided cold drinks and ice cream.
My stress level has been high for what seems like a long time. This week in particular I am looking for a job, my mother has been sick, and my husbands blood pressure is high and is scaring me (he has been to his doctor since and it is being addressed). I have 2 very energetic children. A boy and girl age 2 and 5. I am looking for a job because for years I have been running a business with my husband and it has never made enough money to pay the bills and been quite unpredictable. I hope to find some solid work where I can receive health insurance. Our medical expenses have climbed significantly since we lost our coverage 2 years ago and have paid out of pocket. To say the least I am under a lot of financial stress. I know stress is a culprit to my problem but I am not really sure how I can reduce my stress at the moment. High anxiety and stress are probably the main reason I have had this ongoing problem.

Hi Pbmorgan40,

You must avoid pus forming food items for the time being that are Milk, Rice, beef, pork, potatoes, yogurt, peas, cauliflower, cheese and some watery fruits.

Also, for stress, please take Kali Phos 30C, at least 2 times a day.

Many prayers for your good health.

Thank you again Dr. Khan,
I am abstaining from eating any of these foods and am taking Kali Phos twice daily. Would you suggest dissolving it in mineral water as I have done so with the previous remedies? I have just been following the direction of the container that suggest 5 pellets dissolved in the mouth.
 
pbmorgan40 7 years ago
Hi Pbmorgan40,

Please take Kali Phos 30C, 4 pills dissolved in 1/4 glass of mineral water, 2 times a day, for 3 days.

What has been the response from Kali Phos 30C?

More prayers for you.

Hi stamen,

How are you doing? Did you start taking Kreosotum 30c?
 
nawazkhan 7 years ago
Dr. Khan,
My response to the Kali Phos 30c is a positive one. There hasn't been a significant change but I feel I am able to quiet my mind a little easier. I have also been doing some short meditations which seem to help as well. I am feeling pretty agitated in general and am having a hard time remaining positive. When I first starting talking with you I had mentioned I have been taking fluoxetine 30mg (Prozac) daily for over 10 years... Are there any remedies I should avoid with this medication? I don't plan on just trying random things I am just being cautious.
Thank you for all of your help and prayers, I have seen that many have had great success with your advice and guidance and I appreciate what you are doing.
Thank you.
 
pbmorgan40 7 years ago
Great! You are welcome.

Please continue with Kali Phos as suggested. Let's get some stress out of your life as I see that anxiety is the major cause of your issues. Please be patient.

'Are there any remedies I should avoid with this medication?'
No, not at this time, only give at least 4 hours gap.

I appreciate your kind words and comments.

May God Bless You.

Dr. Khan,
I have taken Kali Phos 30c now for 3 days which I think has helped. I am still staying away from the foods you mentioned and there seems to be a difference. The cyst has not gotten bigger and there is less pus (although still present). Would you suggest I try the Alumen 4X again or the Silicea or keep up with the Kali Phos and diet changes? I am feeling optimistic again about my healing and hope and pray so much to resolve this issue.
Thank you again.

Hello Dr Khan,

Thanks for your reply. Since I am not getting any reverts therefore i was not visiting the forum for the last 2 months.

The cyst has become almost of a size of a table tennis ball. Everyday i notice some spots of blood and pus however the discharge is not heavy.

There is no pain but on touching it there is a slight pain.

The colour of pus is mixed slightly yellowish mixed with the blood.

As of now I am not taking any medicine for the same.

In the month of May 2012, I took Silicea 6X, 4 pills nicely dissolved in 1/4 cup of mineral water, 3 times a day, for 5 days.


looking forward to your reply.

Regards,

Pooja

Many prayers for you.

Hi Pooja,

What are the mind symptoms at this time?

'The cyst has become almost of a size of a table tennis ball. '
What was the size at time of this treatment?

When was your last period?

How long ago did you take Silicea 6x?
 
nawazkhan 7 years ago
Good Morning Dr Khan,

Thanks for your reply.

The cyst was almost of the same size when the treatment had started.
I had my last periods on 16th August.
I had taken the medicine for 5 days as advised by you on your earlier post.

Thanks Pooja.

Very nice Pooja, Good luck.

Hello Dr Khan,

The chemist shop had 30c or higher potency of Berberis Vulgaris.

Therefore I did not buy it. I will try to get it from some other markets tomorrow.

Please do let me know if 30c or higher can be taken for my treatment. Will go as per your direction.

Many thanks,

Pooja

Hello Dr Khan,

As advised by you I have taken Berberis Vulgaris 1X for 4 days.

Well as per my observation I see no discharge now.Though the size of cyst has not reduced very much but it has become very soft.

Please let me know the next course of action.

Thanks and regards,
Pooja.

Hello again Dr. Khan,
I suggested I have taken alumen 4x 3 times a day for 5 days. After the 5 days I got my period. Now that that is over, I can see there is still pus. Much less than before changing my diet and taking Alumen. I do still have the cyst. It is not painful and isn't getting too thankfully ... I am wondering if I should take Alumen again or try Silicea once again?
Please advise on this when you are able.
Thank you so much.
 
pbmorgan40 7 years ago

'I can see there is still pus'
Color of the pus will point to a correct remedy.

Many prayers for your good health Pbmorgan40.
