The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Need advise on Low Testosterone, High Cholesterol and Gout

Hi,

just left doctor's office with a lot of prescription and realized that traditional medicine is way more commercial now days. I've been successful in past treating Psoriasis with homeopathy and would like your help/advise. Here are my conditions and some latest blood work results:

1. High cholesterol 280, where Good Cholesterol = 50, Bad Cholesterol = 190, Triglicerides = 290

2. Low Testosterone = 217 where good testosterone = 43

3. Erectile Dysfunction.
I do have erectile issues I noticed, like getting erection but losing it during the intercourse. Not sure if it's related to Low Testosterone, but since it's low who knows. It could be because of fear that it already happened before. I noticed that just before I lose the erection during the intercourse, I have some heat wave in my body.

4. Gout - I had it for about 7 years and drinking a lot water and following certain diet was able to control to about 2 attacks a year. But lately those 2 yearly attacks became almost a month long and I had to take steroids to make it go away. It's getting worst.
I noticed once that I had an attack when my feet got freezing in a one of the very cold winter days. Also I noticed feet sweating before the attack.

5. Other conditions:
- occasional heart burns almost every day
- occasional gases almost every day

6. About me: I'm male, 43 years old, 186 pounds (need to lose about 10-15 pounds). Feel uncomfortable in a very hot environment/weather.

Please help
Thank you!

Where does gout affect you.

Do you consider yourself well organized or messy

Are you specific about cleanliness & personal hygiene or just ok

How is your memory
 
fitness 6 years ago
Q: Where does gout affect you.

By now it happened at least once in almost every join on the left foot (left side of the left foor, pinky, ankle), but mostly in a big toe of the left foot. But it did happen 3 times on the right foot as well, twice in ankle and once in big toe of right foot.

Q: Do you consider yourself well organized or messy

I would say somewhere in a middle but more on organized side. Slightly lazy.

Q: Are you specific about cleanliness & personal hygiene or just ok

Just Ok.

Q: How is your memory

Memory is good, but I noticed that concentration is not always there. When talking to someone, I might be thinking of something and don't register (don't remember) what was said.
 
valman 6 years ago
Your remedy is: Sulfur 200c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 7 days with changes observed.

TIME OF DOSE:
First dose: At night before sleeping.
Second dose: 12 hrs after the first dose.
Don’t take any more dose or any other remedy unless I tell you.

PILLS/PELLETS:
If your remedy is in the form of pills:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill in mouth.

LIQUID REMEDY:
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) after the first dose, then don’t take the second dose.
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.
During the treatment, don’t eat anything which you have never had all your life.

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.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT HOMEOPATHIC PRESCRIBING:
If someone is giving several remedies, without waiting to see the effect of one remedy, then it is totally against the core principles of homeopathy. Such an approach is unlikely to give permanent cure, rather it may distort actual symptoms making subsequent cure even more difficult.

DIETARY GUIDELINES:
Homeopathy is not magic and it can only work when all other supportive strategies are also used. To make sure you are cured as fast as possible and stay that way please change your lifestyle to include the following:

1. Start eating half cup of low fat, plain, non-flavored yogurt with live cultures daily in the morning or with lunch. If you have homemade yogurt that’s the best.
2. Stop all processed foods e.g. white bread, white rice, white burgers etc.
3. Eat whole foods only i.e. whole grain bread, brown rice, brown burgers etc.
4. The bread should be high in bran content & the flour should be coarse ground.
5. Start eating a small bowl of salad at least once a day e.g. it should contain cucumber, carrots, salad leaves, tomato and any vegetable you like. Put a dressing of olive oil & raw apple cider vinegar and put some salt & black pepper to your liking.
6. Eat at least 1-2 fruits per day e.g. apple, orange etc.
7. Drink enough water so that your urine is clear. Yellow colored urine is a good indication that you are dehydrated.
8. Eat only when hungry and when eating, don’t overstuff yourself.
9. Focus on food only when you eat i.e. don’t divert your attention by watching tv etc.
10. Exercise:
• Aerobic activity e.g. Start walking at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week with your spouse/friend and achieve your target heart rate.
• Strength training e.g. Start weight training at least 20 minutes 3 days a week.

NOTE: Yogurt can cause increased mucus generation in some individuals, if you are like that, don’t eat yogurt. Rather start eating roasted black chick peas (also known as Bengal Gram) daily.

valman 6 years ago
Here are some observations after taking Sulphur 200c twice:
1. I noticed clear head (Clear thinking) especially in the first few days. Good feeling.
2. Skin improved by 30%. I was able to control my psoriasis but this game me a boost. Plus skin became more healthy feeling and looking. Areas around nails not dry anymore.
3. I started feeling some heat in my body, especially in upper part. I guess like light hot flashes may be. Also in GYM started sweating faster.
4. Gout - had a small gout attack on 3rd day, but not sure if it was because of sulphur or because I ate some tuna night before.
5. Some Nausea especially in the morning after the breakfast.
6. Erectile Issues, Gas, heartburn - didn't observe any changes

Observe for a week and then give feedback again. No more dose.

Actually slight improvement on Heartburn. Not as frequent as before

No more dose. Report back after one week.
 
fitness 6 years ago
As of 12 days since taking it.
Heat is almost gone. Skin is getting dryer. So overall back to the way it was before I took this dose. Nothing else I observed changed.
I'm leaving to Mexico (ocean and sun) tomorrow for a week. Any sign of psoriasis will usually be gone after this type of vacation for sometime.
 
valman 6 years ago
We will take it after you are back.
 
fitness 6 years ago
I was back for a few days and did some extra observations.

On vacation I really relaxed very good. Was enjoying sun and pacific ocean. Even drinking some very cheap alcohol I felt a lot better overall which made me thinking that the reason for most illnesses at least in my case could be stress, do you think it could be?

I also got results of my hormonal test I did before leaving on vacation and my testosterone level as well as other results came back normal. Although I still have an some ED.

Skin is good as after any similar vacation.

Yesterday had some discomfort in my big toe on left foot (gout) but took 1 Colchicine and 1 Indomethacin and it easily went away. I noticed that if happens a lot after taking my ED enhancement supplement - Prectiv. I also have some headaches from this supplement.

One more thing I didn't mention earlier - right after I took Sulfur 200, I had a blister on my upper lip (not sure if its important, but wanted to mention anyway).

I won't be able to help you if you do self medication.
 
fitness 6 years ago
it's not a self medication. its a way to prevent a gout attack. I thought you knew
 
valman 6 years ago
What else would you call self medication. While taking homeopathic treatment the body expresses a few things which are hindering cure, you have conveniently managed to mask them with NSAIDs!
 
fitness 6 years ago
I take those medication only when I feel that gout attack might happened and not on a regular basis. If I'll let it go and will not kill attack at the beginning, then I'll spent a very painfull gout week or more in bed. You probably know what gout is.
 
valman 6 years ago
Hello Mr Valman,

I don't want to interfere, but I just want to suggest that you should request ''fitness'' to prescribe a homeopathic medicine, which will provide instant relief whenever you are under attack of gout.

He is right in objecting to your mixing of any other medicine with homeopathic medicine.
 
drakezyber 6 years ago
I'm up to it. Fitness - please advise
 
valman 6 years ago
Gout and other such ailments don't develop overnight, they have a chronic history.

Unless the pain gets unbearable, resist the urge to have any medicine. But if it all comes to it e.g. I am not responding, you are free to use any & all means necessary for relief including allopathy.

Have a dose of Sulfur 200c, just one dose and report back in 7 days. Report earlier if something urgent comes up.
 
fitness 6 years ago
Will do. Would you recommend any remedy instead of Indomethacin just in case if another gout attack will take place?
 
valman 6 years ago
If there is an acute flare up, let me know the symptoms at that time and I maybe able to advise a remedy. Otherwise you have the option of allopathic relief.
