old standing rheumatoid arthritis

Hi,

I am a 70 year old man, suffering rheumatoid arthritis for past 20 years approx. I had jaundice before it all started and in which I had to eat everything that could cool the stomach. When it started, there used to be intense inflammation/pain, such that I used to groan all through the evening, even after taking pain killers. This continued for a few years, later I ate amla powder for sometime and started walking more. This reduced the pain to a certain extent, such that if I take a pain killer everyday it doesn't pain much. But, for the past couple of years the limbs have started deforming, the leg and palm fingers are already deformed. Now I fear the elbow, knee and waist would deform next. Doctors on this forum please consider this case and reply at your earliest.

Thanks.

Your remedy is: Piper Methysticum 6c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take one dose daily.
Report back in 7 days with changes observed.
Don’t take any other remedy unless I tell you!

If your remedy is in the form of pills:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill under the tongue.

If your remedy is in liquid form:
Put one drop of the remedy in half glass of water, stir and take one tea spoon from it.
That’s one dose.
Use the same mixture for subsequent doses, if required.
Don’t refrigerate the mixture. Put it anywhere covered, away from direct sunlight.

PRECAUTIONS:
If there is significant worsening of symptoms (called homeopathic aggravation) at anytime, stop dosing.
Don’t take any other homeopathic remedy during this treatment.
Give a break of at least 10 minutes before eating/drinking anything before or after taking the remedy.

HOW TO GIVE FEEDBACK:
A good example of how to report your progress is by giving %age improvement for all your health problems e.g.
Headache: 30% better
Low energy level: 50% better
Anxiety: 40% better
Sadness: No change
Depression: Worse
And so on list all your complaints.

If you don’t hear back from me within 24 hrs, it is likely that the forum’s email didn’t work. You can send me an email by clicking my username.
