psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis

I have had psoriasis for the last 18 years. It has gotten really bad as of late. It covers 80% of my lower legs and spots on the upper legs, gluteal area, back and also elbows. Some spots on scalp but just tiny. Also in the inside of my ears. They are really red and will be horribly flakey every 2-3 days if I don't soak in baths. Baths help the flakes but not redness. It is rapidly expanding.

The only time this went away was when I had to have my colon cut and then reattached 4 months later due to diverticulitis. It all went away but is back after 6 months with a vengance. No colon pain since.

I also have joint swelling in the fingers and 8 of 10 toes. I have body pain and fatigue.

My emotional state is very anxious, fearful of losing everything and no sexual desire. Not unsuual for someone who has no job and feels like a leper.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. I feel hopeful the some way this will go away but also very stressed.

I have tried all the traditional mainstream med has with no avail.

Thank you

Please pick right words to describe your personality

--> When you were 27 and had a psoriasis breakout
For example: lazy,jealous, talkative etc.

--> NOW
Example: lazy, jealous, suspicious, etc

Can you tolerate tight clothing around your neck or waist, especially when psoriasis is not flared up?

What medications did you receive for the broken wrist? Please describe

Have you used any hormonal meds, at any point of time? If yes, then since when.

Any major events in your life, especially just before psoriasis breakout? Lets say from 2 to 6 months before.

What is the color of the affected skin?

Have you ever used homeopathy before? If yes, please give details?
Zady101 last decade
Thank you for your reply... sorry I was not complete with my words.

--> When you were 27 and had a psoriasis breakout
::I was young and always pretending to be sucessful (financially) but not (insecure). I was emotionally jealous and suspicious and also found myself drinking and having poor impulse control. I also at the time discovered I was hypothyroid and began medication which is now a natural thyroid med. called cynomel (although prior to 3 years ago was levothyroxine)

--> NOW
I dont know if I am lazy or its just horrible fatigue, my brain thoughts are cloudy and I am suspicious.

Can you tolerate tight clothing around your neck or waist, especially when psoriasis is not flared up?
Not really. I dont like any tight clothes. People often say my clothes are baggy looking even though I am overweight.

What medications did you receive for the broken wrist?
Nothing much. It was repaired with surgery (meds unknown) and some little clips were put in to hold the tendon although they did not hold - there is no problem with my right wrist now.

Have you used any hormonal meds, at any point of time? If yes, then since when.
Yes thyroid (synthroid in the beginning 1995 approx.) and now Cynomel (mexico medication which is a natural one like Armour Thryoid - a T3 only .50mcg)

Any major events in your life, especially just before psoriasis breakout? Lets say from 2 to 6 months before.
Unstable love relationships and stress from school. Alot of alcohol use (again, i was young). After having one tiny spot it spread as I was in trouble with the law. I stole. It was wrong and I faced serious jail time but was let off with a misdemeanor but that still haunts me.

What is the color of the affected skin?
RED very red unless the scales build up the white patchy scales on top of red.

Have you ever used homeopathy before?
I have used Arnica(?) for joint pain and a complex for over eating but I dont know what it was... it was from Swansons vitamins.

Again... Thank you for your assistance

Please take a single dose of Lachesis Muta 200 as per the below method:

Please put 2 drops of the remedy into 3 teaspoons water, and drink all of it in one go. This is to be done ONCE only. No repetitions.

Please use disposable cup and spoon for this dosing.

Please update me after 10 days.

Please avoid coffee.

Your condition is perfectly curable by Homeopathy.

Best wishes.

A couple questions:

Is Lachesis Muta the same as Lachesis? I can't locate the 'muta' version.

Also is it 200C or 200M? or some other letter (the dosing is something I have yet to fully understand).

Thank you. I will be in touch soon after trying. I appreciate your help!

I will try that...

Just a quick update. My psoriatic arthritis has flared up alot. I now have several fingers VERY swollen and sweeling into both hands and wrists. Over feeling very swollen in the body.

Emotionally I am afraid I cant support myself and my partner will leave me. Its not so much suspicious but the feeling that no one will be there for me.

I tried to talk about it with my partner but I realized whatever words were used just never seemed like enough. I feel scared. Scared of all this pain, the skin problems and that I will be homeless and alone. And in so much pain. I can hardly walk or turn a door knob.

Sooo... Any additional thoughts?

I will have to have the Lachesis mailed as it is not available locally. Too bad because I wanted to do it right away.

Anyway, thank you again.
sonja123 last decade
Remedy was prescribed after taking many things into account, so please get it as soon as you can. It will give u peace of mind and provide relief in your flared up physical symptoms.
Zady101 last decade
How is your condition now?
Zady101 last decade

Sorry for the delay. I had to have the treatment shipped and it took a bit.

Yesterday was day 10. I have had no relief. On the first night of the dose I felt a bit better and some swelling was reduced but it was back to very painful by morning. Each day is worse. I have much swelling in the hand joints and my overall body is very inflamed.

Trying to keep a positive outlook but its difficult.

What do you recommend next?
sonja123 last decade

Please take Lachesis 200C as per the below method:

Please put 2 drops of the remedy into 3 teaspoons water. Stir multiple times with a spoon and drink all of it in one go. This is one dose.

Please take 1 dose each day for 3 days and stop.

Please use disposable cup and spoon for this dosing.

Please update me 3 days after doses are finished.

Please avoid coffee.

Depending on the response, I may ask you to arrange Lachesis LM1 and Lachesis LM2. How much time is it taking for delivery?
Zady101 last decade
Thank you.

It took like 10 days to get as I am in WAY south texas... almost mexico so deliveries here take a while.

I will contact you in 3 days.

Thank you again.
sonja123 last decade
Did you order from Boiron on this site? bc they ship out of San Diego.
If people can get things in 3 days or 4 from San Diego to NYC, it is rather
odd that it takes that long.
simone717 last decade
Its like the pony express down here. No kidding. Everything takes about that long.
sonja123 last decade
OK 3 days have passed. No improvement and continues to worsen.

please advise next step...

sonja123 last decade

Please get Lachesis LM1
Zady101 last decade
After a couple days without anything I think looking back it was helping a little bit.

Can I do something with what I already have? 200c

It will take too long to get here and I cant afford to express ship.

Maybe I can use it in some way in the mean time until the other order gets here
sonja123 last decade
liquid or pellets...??? and qty please...

And it says right on your order site liquids take 4-5 days lead time to add to delivery time.

Maybe thats why it took so long. I did get something from the web yesterday and it was only 5 days to get here so I dont know how long this will take...

sonja123 last decade

Please repeat Lachesis 200C as per the below method:

Please put 1 drops of the remedy into 6 teaspoons water. Stir multiple times with a spoon.

Please take 2 teaspoons
Wait 15 mins
Take 2 teaspoons
wait 15 mins
take the last remaining 2 spoons

Please use disposable cup and spoon for this dosing.

Please update me 3 days after doses are finished.

Please avoid coffee.

Please order Lachesis LM1 and Lachesis LM2 from this site:
