cat with Grave's disease

Hello,

I have a 13 year old (rescue) cat with Grave's disease. I have been reading that homeopathy can be very effective with this condition.

I have read that both natrum muriaticum, and/or iodinum (sp?) are good, and one place said use both, and add the natrum muriticum to the iodinum if diarrhea presents, which it does.

The problem is, I have a tiny bit of knowledge about homeopathy, but not enough to know which one to start with, how much per day or week to take, and when to add the natrum muriaticum-first, last?

Any suggestions here as to exact dosage and strengthy? I am on a shoestring budget right now and a homeopathic vet is not an option.

Some other symptoms is that the diarrhea is extremely smelly, he's losing weight and there is constant vocalizing/whining. He also is very aggressive towards my first rescue cat. He is a bit manipulative too, loves people food and even if he has five cans of food in front of him, ignores them all and keeps looking for a certain 'taste' he has in mind.

Please help, don't want to have him go on medication for the rest of his diminutive life.

Thanks in advance,

Lisa

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him three doses of Lycopodium 30 as follows and see how that affects in next 7 days (only 3 doses in 7 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

Kadwa,

could you explain why this choice? I have been reading that lycopodium is for LOW thyroid.

Marzipan has excessive thyroid, the opposite.

Thanks in advance,

loss of appetite, losing weight, smelly diarrhea point to Lycopodium. If he had good appetite Iodium would have been better.

It is very unfortunate that all attempts to simplify homeopathy makes it more complicated. It is very confusing to list remedies for pathological conditions.

Dear Kadwa,

His appetite is supernatural. He eats at least 3-5 cans of cat food a day!!!! And is still hungry!

So perhaps the iodinum pluse the natrum muriaticum is still a good combo, then? The nat. mur. for the smelly diaarhea? Would you use the iodinum first and then the nat. mur?

Another thing, Kadwa, the disease begain about six months after he was 'dumped' on me after the girl who owned him for 12 years got a kitten, and got tired of him. Her boyfriend said, and I quote, 'that Heather broke Mars's heart.' So I think there is a grief component there, but not sure, because Grave's disease is common with older cats.

Please give the remedies one by one.
Natrum Mur
Iodium
Lycopodium

No need to give the next remedy if he gets better.
