This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him Arnica 200 in the evening for 7 days and see how that affects.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

The SLP may evaluate the need for an instrumental assessment of the .... the interdisciplinary team can help these dysphagia patients swallow more safely.

Does he literally curse(Shraap dete hain?)
bapu4 7 years ago
the swalowing problem started after the accident.
because my father had tracheostomy for almost 3 month.
after finaly they managed to remove it at the rehabilitation center .
since the he has difficlty to swallow, however he is eating and drinking normal most of the time.

coursing is also started probably 2 years ago, mostly when touching him and he feels pain.
he is never used to course before the accident.

the reccurent UTI and Pneumonia is the two things that sends him to hospital every time. and somtimes sepsis is the complication that occure all together.

anyway i'm giving Arnica 200 at this moment for 7 days.
and see how he will feel.

i'm giving him also collodial silver to try minimizing the reccurent of infection.

circulation is another issue he has. foot turn dark when sitting on chair.
foot very sensetive to touching and feel lot of pain.

Thank you all for your support.

I want to suggest something for your father- and the pneumonia.

I am trying to figure out a better way to ship to India -but the
product is called, New Chapter ( the company itself)
the name of the product is:

Lifeshield Immunity.

This company has a LOT of products and make sure you get it right.
These are whole life cycle activated musrooms with mainly
the reishi mushroom in it. This is a SUPERFOOD. It is powder in
a capsule- so you could open it and put it in some water for your father.

Amazon .com has this- but you have to look around on Amazon and
put in the title a few times- bc I found it on Amazon at $28.12 for
120 capsules. Normally at the store here - it costs $29.00 for 60 capsules.
However Amazon is a bit crazy as they show many, many prices on this-
but $28.12 for 120 caps of this is the best price I have seen.

Read the reviews. The first review is a person who does not get sick
anymore. They boost up your system in 24 hours. And it is food.
I had a Dr. friend from India send some to her Mom in India who
was going to go to hospital for chest bronchitis, sinus, etc and
she was all better in 24 hours after taking the mushrooms. ThisDr.
just gave 2 caps to her husband who was getting a bad cold yesterday-
today he is totally fine.

This is a great product- I know it will do wonders for the pneumonia-
I hope you can get it.

Dear Simone,

i believe mushroom is super food and excelent for many ailments as you mentioned, it has a lot of benefits.
and i will consider this product to give my father.
great site to look
is www.vitacost.com

regarding Arnica seems like there is some improvment with my father after started using Arnica 200.
sleeping - better
more relax
less pain
less spasticity.
however this is just the begining, he is still complaining about his foot painfull. and caught not stop when drinking.
So, i'm wondering if need to continue with Arnica or no?

i really appreciate your help DR Kadwa.
please advise how to continue with homeophaty.

anxious, depression, negative outlook - no change, maybe even in some point, i see negative and attitude during yesterday worsen towards family, for example: bringing back memories from the past 20 years ago and arguing with my brother.

pains - complaing about burning pain in the foot, however from my point of view, less complains compared 2-3 weeks ago.

mind: stubborn and indifference, when asked for any opinion, say 'i don't know.'

swalowing water - no change, caugh immidiatly after drinking something, eating seems better.

stool is better - no white mocus coming with stool and less pain when sitting on toilet.
* important point - suppository glycerine is used to help with bowel movement.

left extermities - some swelling in left feet exist when sitting. right feet better.

as i mentioned the right side is weaker compare to the left side.

phisycal - no change with any body function.

spasm - i can see some improvments also.

Thank you for all the help. please let me know if you need any further information.

i will report back in another 7 days.
