Nat phos is not the cure for acid reflux

I have seen many posts using nat phos 6x as the remedy for acid reflux. This has not worked for ten of my patients. Why? Because there are many different types of acid reflux problems. I have especially found that acid reflux when connected to sinus problems And constipation works amazingly well with calcarea carb and silicea.

Silicea is very cooling to the stomach and acid reflux is almost always a sign of a calcium deficiency.

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Of course Nat-phos is not the remedy for acid reflux. Any homoeopath worth his salt can tell you that. There is no one remedy for any named condition. The remedy is always individually selected on the basis of the peculiars the specific patient shows. Any remedy can cure it. Any remedy at all.

I see acid reflux very frequently in clinic. I have used over a hundred different remedies for it, depending on the picture the patient shows.

The rules of homoeopathy are always the same. INDIVIDUALIZE EVERY CASE.

'nuff said.

Brisbane - whilst i agree with you and ur totally right about fixing the basic constitution of a person to fix the problem i do slightly disagree somewhat too.....

.....there are certain remedies that will work in all patients. e.g i have yet to come across a person that didn't respond to arnica for hair fall.......no matter what their constitution.

This is untrue. 200 years of homoeopathic research has shown us there is no one medicine that will cure everyone with a specific named complaint.

I have actually seens posts from people here who did not get good results from Arnica. There is no one cure-all for any condition.

It is possible to use a remedy to palliate or suppress a condition by creating the proving in the patient. This must be done by frequent dosing. This is not 'working', and is not cure by the homoeopathic definition. Using our medicines in this way is dangerous as suppression ultimately harms the patient and can make them incurable.

Brisbane - I've seen many of ur posts and i definitely respect u :)

I'm quite new here and guess not as experienced as u either

but I've personally had very good results with using remedies over a long period of time. homeopathy is basically just triggering ur own immune system to recover itself from an ailment. there is no such thing as an overdose in homeopathy.

even if u do feel the negative effects of proving they will pass on their own.

There is definitely overdosing in homoeopathy. Overdosing is quite dangerous and our Organon of Medicine warns against it. In fact one of our basic principles is Law of the Minimum Dose - which is to say you only ever give the smallest amount of medicine to create cure in the patient.

There is also a set of guidelines in the Organon for antidoting severe aggravations in patients, whose pathology is advanced or who are weakened and oversensitive.Dr. James Kent observed that in some cases aggravations can be so dangerous to the patient they will die from them. I have seen this happen myself.

You will see many patients here on this forum complaining about side effects, proving symptoms, suppression. I have seen many of them in my own practice or coming from other homoeopaths. Homoeopathic medicines can be quite powerful, and anything that is powerful can be very harmful as well. I have seen people report new symptoms after treatment years later, until cured with an appropriate medicine.

Homoeopathy is not intelligent, it doesn't 'care' about us. A medicine we give simply does what it does - it either cures the symptoms because the patient already has them, or it causes them if they do not (not well matched to them). If you apply only one small aspect of the remedy to one small aspect of the patient's symptoms, disregarding the totality of the case, then you will at best palliate the symptoms, and at worst suppress them.

We have a complex set of guidelines to prevent all this from happening. I would suggest reading the Organon of Medicine, and Kent's Lectures on Homoeopathic Philosophy as well.

I simple cannot agree. There are superior homeopathy such as joe and a few others who have been taking certain remedies like arnica everyday and are fit and fine. Why was proving not detrimental here?

Much of what you are talking about here
is explained very very well in interviews with
Dr. Saine- an internationally known
healer of very hard cases bc he takes
tough cases and he is the head of
Canada Homeopathic society and
also has a school, you can read
from a master about all of this.

Perhaps u cud copy and paste the paragraph u think is relevant ?
santinosharma 6 years ago

Well I can only tell you what the experience of all the homoeopaths for 2 centuries has been, and what my experience has been for the last 20 years as a practicing qualified homoeopath. All of this is stated again and again in our literature, so I guess it is up to you who you choose to believe.

Joe does not practice homoeopathy at all, much less 'superior' homoeopathy. Whether he is 'fit and fine' we cannot know for certain. Either you believe in the Law of Similars as the foundation of homoeopathic prescribing or you do not. If you do, then you know that taking a remedy every day will produce a proving and that will eventually become a chronic disease. If you do not believe in the Law of Similars...well then I don't know where that puts you. Certainly not in the camp of homoeopathy.

Homoeopathy is not magic, it is science. It has rules, and these rules apply at all times.
