Thank you Dr.Tamhankar

I have just bought the 3 medicines. The pharmacist has given Natrum Mur 200and Psorinum 1M in pills. She mentioned that White Chestnut does not have any potency. She has given it in liquid form. I have restricted my diet since past few months to fruit base and simple diet like rice, dal. I will avoid the milk in pure form and stop all other medicines.I will follow the prescribed dose and report to you in 15 days from today.

Hello Dr Tamhankar,
I am giving you an update. I have stopped all medications and am only using the prescribed homeopathy medicines. After having the medicines the psoriasis has flared up a bit. It itches a lot in the night time. I am attaching a picture of the calves to better explain the issue. It is one of the most seriously affected area. The few areas on the body has got small circular spots. But overall i am feeling mentally very clear. There were one or two days of high acidity. Thanks for your time.

Hello Dr.Tamhankar,
I had followed the routine very religiously.The skin on the calves appeared to heal.But it scratches like hell in the night time. The scratching just throws out lots of dry white skin but it doesnot bleed much now. Even though there are some times when the skin bleeds a lot. It is not consistently bleeding like before I started the medicines. I relieve the terrible itch with very hot water on the spots. Also have developed small spots all over the thigh and waist. These scratch very bad especially during night times. Just noticed that the flare up is very bad, when i have more sugar or rich food. So I think i will need to modify the diet to avoid much of sugar. Some old psoriasis spots appear to be healing from the center. There is a small itchy ring forming in those spots. Thanks to the medicines, I dont feel too bad about it now. Please let me know if any medicinal or diet change is required.
 
Blackknight 9 years ago
You can continue the medicines as prescribed.
Only Psorinum-1m you can take by weekly dose. (2 times in a week)

I stay at Nashik. If possible you can come down to Nashik as it is only 3 hours journey.

Give feedback after 15 days

R.P. Tamhankar

Hello Dr.Tamhankar,
The large patches in the calves are showing improvement. Some of the skin in the calves is returning to normal color. Also itching is comparably less.I have attached some pictures of the calves and thighs. Slowly and gradually the wet psoriasis spots are getting dry. Yet there are a few spots like picture 2 which scratches bad till it bleeds. Thanks for the relief and advice you have provided in the past 1 month.Any change in medicine ? Please advise.

Dear Doctor,
Thanks once again. I have sent you an image of the calves. Calves were the most affected part of the body. I had not recorded other positions of the disease. But will do so now. Thanks for the help.

Hi Doctor Tamhakar,

Would suggest Sulphur as an intercurrent remedy. Extreme itching at night and the nature of the eruptions strongly suggest the same.

Regards,
Niel

It is only a temporary reprieve. The Psoraises will flare up once again and will probably become untreatable if you follow the protocol that you are following now.

Remember a right homeopath only prescribes one remedy based on your overall constitution and current problems.

You should go for Classical Homeopath.

I have seen people responding to treatment even after carrying it for years like you are.

But please stop this treatment immediately. You are being taken for a ride.

Can someone guide. Zady100 has only 1 post in the forum. but Zady100 's post has put me in a dilemma.
 
Blackknight 9 years ago
Blackknight

If you are improving, pl do not listen to others and do not look elsewhere.
Pl do not be in dilemma. Pl continue the treatment and report me after 15 days.

They can come to me, I can show number of cases cured.

R.P. Tamhankar
 
shouse_nsk 9 years ago
Do you want your case to be completely spoiled?

Please stop this treatment here.

Psorinum in 1M potency with such frequent repetition and that too mixed with other remedies, is a dangerous way to treat.

Psorinum is not the medicine to be played around with.

One last advice. If you live in Bombay, you may see Farokh Master or any other good or rather very good classical homeoapth there. There are plenty of them there.

By the way, this is my last message in your thread.
 
Zady100 9 years ago
Can you put any single case as example which is completely treated by classsical homeopathy? I haven't seen any on this forum at least.

Interesting thing is that Classical homeopaths of these days are behaving with modern homeopaths in exactly the same way as the rivals of Hahnemman used to behave with Hahnemman
 
AsadGhumman 9 years ago
I agree with Asad - classical homeopathy is useless.

If you want fast relief and success follow Doctor Tamhankar's advice. This doctor is god gifted and you have already seen successful results - why then would you listen to others and delay or stop your progress?

Zady - I have been taking nux vomica 200 for weeks now daily sometimes twice. your classical approach would obviously condone this but i feel more alive then i have done in a long time. Please stop trying to halt the healing process of others on this forum with classical approaches which have no scientific fact.
