Hi, I am a 36 y old male in CRF for 4 years. I have tried many doctors and paid alot of money but nothing seems to help. Recently I was sick with bronchipneumonia, and after that I ahve ahd shortness of breathe, and my b.p is very high 170/115. My doctor says this is normal for renal patients? I also have selling on my left leg, even though my fluid intake is minimal.I have been taking b.p medication and it is still not helping. I have also stopped passing urine. Can anyone help me please.

Thank you

Dear Mani,

My thirst varies. Soemtimes I drink a small amount and I am fine, but sometimes I drink at least 3-4 glasses of water and I am still thirsty.

Thank you

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions? Sweets

You mentioned sweets.... You crave for sweets or its an aversion?

If you say that you have stopped passing urine, you must be on dialysis, you havn't mentioned it in your case history.

What was the matter when you first visited the doctor? You must be having some feelings before being diagnosed for CRF, what were those?

When you say that you take small quantity of water and are ok. Is it so, that you take small quantity (a sip or two) and repeat it several time in an hour.

I am sorry, I am having too many questions, becuase you have provided very less information in the questionnaire.

I crave for sweets. My aversion is red meat.
RM123 6 years ago
Hi mani,

There is noi need to apologise,as youa re trying to help me. I am on dialysis for 4 years now. I used to pass urine reasonably around 300 ml, but it has now stopped. Dialysis is too costly for now.I initially had stomach crmaps,and couldn't pass stool or urine. Doctrors did exploratory surgury on my stomach, and I got more sick after that. I then saw another doctor who advised I had nephrotic syndrome and he put me on treatment on hypertensives, and diuretics. After a while I had flu like symptoms and was admitted in hospital with nausea,vomiting and severe stomach pains.Doctor then advised me that I had renal failure.

You are correct in that I take a few sips of water, then later need to drink a glass or more.
RM123 6 years ago
Ok, I have sufficient information fir prescribing and would come back to you tomorrow.

Dear Mani, Apologies for not getting back sooner. I have tried in vain to source ars alb 30 locally. None of the suppliers I contacted have repleid to my e-mails. Can you help with this? I am not sure if these items are allowed into my country. Thanks....
RM123 6 years ago
You can buy it from abchomeopathy.

mani_jee 6 years ago
Dear Mani,

Do I buy the liquid form or tablet? Does abchomeopathy ship to south africa?


RM123 6 years ago
You may buy it in tablet form. I am not sure if they ship to south africa or not.

Don't you have any local homeo stores in your area?

mani_jee 6 years ago
Dear Mani,Apologies for replying after such a long time, but I have been in and out of hospital.My B.p Is still very high and there is still problems with passing urine and with swelling of my feet,ankles and legs. I have managed to find a supplier for arsenicum album but it is in the 30X concentration. Is this the same? It is in the tablet form, adn I would like to know how many tablets to take, so that I can order in advance.


RM123 6 years ago
Dear R,

It would be in your best interest to see a homeopath in South Africa
in person. Have you looked for a person? http://www.homeopathysouthafrica.co.za/SA_homeopath_director...

You have serious issues here that are not best addressed by an online
forum. btw, homeopaths in your country will have all the remedies
on hand, and for ordering you can order from Helios Homeopathic Pharmacy
in the Uk, they ship worldwide and they have everything.

I am very much of the opinion as of simone.

You should look for a local homeopath, so in case of any emergency, you may consult him/her.

Best regards
