Severe Brain Damage

My friend's son has been in an accident 2 months ago and was in a coma, he has just come out of it but is severely brain damaged. He can just move his eyes and if moved to another room, his eyes follow. No body movement so far. Any suggestions as he is just 21 years old. His parents are clutching all straws. Please advise if you have any suggestions

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I have used Arnica 1M to help an 82 year old man who had lost all motor functions in his extremeties and was condemned to a chair or to his bed. I used this remedy and in 4 months he is now well and enjoys his life.

May I suggest that you use this same remedy on this boy who is suffering from brain damage ?

I cannot guarantee that he will come around but it cannot do any harm and if there is no sign of any improvement in 1 month it may be discarded.

This remedy is best taken in the Water Dose which is made up as follows:

Get a 500ml bottle of spring water
Put in 3 globules or 1 drop if you have the liquid remedy of Arnica 1M.
Twirl the bottle in your hand clockwise and anti clw as this will succuss the water prior to each dose.

Give a teaspoonful twice daily for the first week and report response.

Please discontinue the remedy if the patient shows any negative reaction which I do not anticipate but keep me advised of his progress from time to time.

Do not use other drugs unless on a SOS basis.

Arnica can make wonders in such cases!
Homeopathy will certainly help him.

Thanks Joe,
The father of the boy will be checking this post which I have sent him. His neurons are damaged and is on a drip presently. Any suggestions how to give him the medication.
Do any of you have information on stem cell technology any where in the world. Would love to know more about this treatment as well.
Dungi last decade
I presume that the boy can be given the medication by opening his lips and slowly dropping a teaspoonful of the potentized water into his mouth.

Great care must be taken to ensure that he does not choke if he is unable to swallow it. Even if he does not do so the presence of the medication in his mouth is I believe sufficient to permit the remedy to help him.

It may be necessary to use the medication more often say 3-4 times daily to enable it to be better absorbed by the body if he is unable to swallow it as his body will only receive the medication from the trace in his mouth.

I would appreciate if others on this forum will please comment on this matter as this is the first time that I have been asked to help with a problem like this.
Joe De Livera last decade
Give him arnica asap (I had great results when it was taken almost within 10 min-)
The sooner the better!

When you post after a week (any changes, remaining symptoms) we will make further suggestions.

Also-nothing like a face-to-face visit--maybe you can get a profesional homeopath to visit him.
he will be healed.

Proceed with arnica but meanwhile read about hom.. and hom. remedies.
this is about helloborus niger:

Astra2012 last decade
Natrum Sulph is another great remedy for internal brain injuries.I have been treating my father-in-law who had fallen from a train and hence suffered from severe brain injury around twenty nine years ago.He was in a coma then for around twenty days.He survived somehow with the treatment at that time.But thereafter he started behaving like a 10-12 year old kid.I have been treating him for the last two and a half years after my marriage to his daughter three years ago.The main remedy that i have used is Natrum Sulph in the 10M to CM potency range and he has responded beautifully to homeopathy.Now we can put his mental age at a much more advanced level than when i started the treatment.Of course full recovery is perhaps not possible due to the sheer number of years that have passed after the injury.But your friend can certainly recover.Give him Arnica as Joe has advised and then may be after a week or so tell us how he is doing.At some point in his treatment you may need Nat Sulph also.

Sodium Sulphate ; Glauber Salts. Na OSO3+10aq.

Since its discovery by Glauber, in 1658 (de natura salium), it was called Sal Mirabile by himself, and afterwards Sal Glauberi. It has been used as a laxative in so-called inflammatory affections, or employed as a purgative (Comp. Pereira, ed. by Carson). The Chinese use it for the same purpose, according to Scherzer (Austrian Expedition). It is rarely given in smaller doses, largely diluted, as an aperient and diuretic (American Dispensatory). It was proved in still smaller doses by Dr. Schreter, in Lemberg, Galicia ; the proving published in 1832, in Hartlaub's Annalen, vol. 111, No. 4, and by the zealous and meritorious Nenning in Bohemia, by himself, and several women and girls, published in 1833, in the same journal, vol. 4, No. 4.

In Grauvogl's works, Grundgesetze, 1858, Das Homöopathische Ähnlichkeitgesets, 1861, Diätetik und Prophylaxis, 1862, Lehrbuch der Homöopathie, 1866, it is recommended as a polychrest in the "hydrogenoid constitution," Sycosis, Leucæmia and Thrombosis.

Long before this it had been used in the 30th centesimal to prevent the development of some forms of consumption by Hering, was given in important cases of sickness by Jeanes, in abdominal disorders and chronic diarrhœa by Lippe, and in the second potency with prompt result in some forms of sciatica by Raue and Hering, according to symptoms of Nenning.

For complete collection of symptoms see Hering's Monograph, Am. Jour. Hom. Mat. Med. Sulphate of soda is contained in a great many springs, used and abused as medicines.

It predominates in the warm springs of Karlsbad (Sprudel), of Bristol (hot well), and in the cold springs of the Isle of Wight, and of Püllna, Saidschütz, Marienbad, Bilin, and Franzensbad, in Bohemia. --C. Hg.

Introduced by Schreter, proved by him and Nenning (Hartlaub and Trink's Annalen, vol. 4, p. 487), Lembke (N. Zeit. für Hom. Klinik, 1866, vol. 11, p. 97).

he is aware of more than you think - talk to him. play his favorite music.

try to move his limbs so he will get some passive exercise

therapeutic massage, croniosacral therapy, acupuncture or at least acupressure--all might be beneficial.
Astra2012 last decade
Thanks Astra2012 for you very infrormative reply, I have sent all the info to my friend.

Anyone knows of where in Virginia (USA) to get homeopathic medicines - names & locations will certainly help as I am in another country trying to help.

Dungi last decade
He can get hom. rem. in health stores or some pharmacies- but the choice is very limited (usually only the most popular remedies and only one potency).
best way is ordering through Internet.

it is important that at least once a day he tries to start communication - like yes/no by blinking once or twice.
Astra2012 last decade
one more thing-in case parents would like to be depressed they may talk to medical doctors who have a lot of profesional pessimism and think it is their duty to share it) but around him should be only optimism and smiles. Praise any-even if only imaginary- his slightest achievement. tape parents reading/talking optimistic stories and let it play in his room.

It may take some time but if you never give up it is possible that he makes full recovery.
Just take one day at a time.

I show all the detail and all the others perscription I suggest the Ginko Biloba for brain development becuse it helps to supply oxygen to the brain no other medicine can supply the oxygen to brain it can be continue 10 drops thrice in a day for long period with other medicine like Arnica , Gelsimium can be given time to time if needed.
deoshlok last decade
dr Sharma is talking about Ginkgo biloba mother tincture- it dilates capillaries in brain - increasing supply of oxygen.
more expensive are treatments in HYPERBARIC OXYGEN TANKS but might work wonders!
Astra2012 last decade
No it is not expensive it is a brain feeder. It will not change any pathological condion of brain I am useing regularly in paralysis,mania, brain dammage, loss of memory, loss of sensation in body, burning of the body you can use any where if patient is suffering from deep anxiety problem on there also you can use. if you brain tired due to over work you can use there also. It is nice and dependable in brain. In INDIA IT COST WILL BE Rs. 180/- i.e.near 5$ (Schwabe Germany )
deoshlok last decade
Yes dr Sharma-ginkgo is not expensive.

I was talking about treatment in hyperbaric oxygen tanks= it may be around 100$/treatment and he might need several treatments.

Hi Everyone here is the exact condition of my friends son.

Do those homeopathic medicines actually work becasue my mom says they dont and my dad says they do. I think they do becasue so many people have replied to the message u made on the website.I will update u on rahul's condition so u can change the message and make people send better medicine requests. Rahul can see and follow on both sides but in the center he has trouble trasfering his eyes from side to side. He has a big reflex on his left leg and he can hold his neck and turn it only a little bit. The docs say his right brain is completely damaged and the left there is significant damage. But his right brain seems to be better. Everthing on his left sie of his body is better then the right meaning his right brain is better than the left.(The right brain controls the left side of the body). All these observations may not be big but they show us he is healing. Before he couldn't see on both sides and now he can, he coudn't hold or turn his neck and now he can somewhat, and he never had a reflex in that leg and now he does. Before he favored his right side of his body but now he favors the left. His mouth moves in a way which seems like he talks but he doesn't. (All Brain traumas do this but no one knows why). He is very responsive to touch and sound and he can definitely see. He cannot see far though he can go allitle bit past theend of his bed so there is still alot more to go. "

I would like your replies to this latest thread and i can then purchase the medicine on this site itself and have it delivered asap.
Dungi last decade
I note that you have not used any remedy so far although you first posted your brother's problem on Oct 19.

I hope that you realize that he must have at least the Arnica 1M that I suggested which should have been given to him long ago as it would have helped him to heal.

This is not the time to debate whether or not Homeopathic remedies will or will not work and in your brother's interest I would urge you to give him the Arnica immediately.

You can assure your parents that in the unlikely event of Arnica not helping, his condition will not be aggravated.
