The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Attn:Mr.Joe De Livera - Hairloss - Clarifications

Hai Mr.Joe,I am a 36 year old female. I have been having hairloss problem for the past 5 years and have undergone many treatments(including homeopathy-i don't have a record of what they gave me 2 years back.). I have taken all tests. I don't have any iron deficiency and the hormone tests show that there is no hormonal problem. But so far there has been no response to any of the treatments. I came across this forum and saw the use of Arnica 30 . I got Arnica 30 from a homeopathy doctor just 2 days back and she has also prescribed Acid Fluor : both 3 balls x 3 times a day to be taken at 1/2 hour interval. She told that Arnica balls given don't have to be mixed with the water as it is already with the required potency.
I am having so much hope on arnica after reading thru this forum. Hope it works for me.
Please clarify the following:
a)Is Acid Fluor also for treating hairfall?
b)Can Arnica 30 be taken just like that, without mixing with water? Does 3'globules' mean 3'balls'?
c)Can coffee/ cola drinks/tea can be taken occasionaley or to be avoided totally? Should mint/garlic be avoided totally or can it be taken before/after half an hour before taking homeopathy medicine?
d)Do we need to avoid any of the fruits and fruit juices, as you have mentioned that vitamin c should be avoided when taking arnica?
e)My scalp becomes very oily the next day after I wash my hair. Is it ok to use arnica Q with coconut oil for oily scalp?
f)I am a vegetarian.So i can't take cod liver oil. Can i replace it with flax seed oil(1000)+vitamin E(400)?
g)Is it half an hour or one hour interval after food ,to take homeopathy medicine?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I regret that I cannot spare the time to reply all your queries individually.

Please use the Search forums window for Hair Loss and read the advice that I and other homeopaths have made on this subject.

Use only Arnic 30c in the water dose twice daily and report response in a month.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks for your reply. I read that ' 3globules ' to be mixed in 400ml water. 'does '3globules' mean just '3 balls'?
Is it advisable to take 'acid fluor ' along with 'arnica 30' ?

preetram last decade
Globules = Balls

Your method of making the remedy is correct.

Do not take other remedies with Arnica 30c
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks for the reply. I will follow up after 2 -3 weeks .

Hai Mr.Joe, I have been taking Arnica 30 for the past 2 weeks. So far I haven't seen any improvement . In fact, I see more hair falling for the past one week, than before. It is more when I wash my hair. Do I continue with arnica 30 for two more weeks ? Please advice.
preetram last decade
You might also consider using the Arnica Q 20% mix with virgin Coconut oil which you can massage on the hair roots as this has a positive effect on hair loss.

Remember that treatment of hair loss is not a quick fix and you will have to be patient.
Joe De Livera last decade
I will be able to get the Arnica Q only next week. So will try that also once i get it and also continue to use Arica 30. I still have the hope in Arnica after reading thru the hair loss forum in this site.

But please clarify ,if this sign of hair falling more than before , after I started taking Arnica , is a indication of responding to the treatment? I am asking this because, I have heard that homeopathy, in some people, first aggravates the symptoms and cures.

preetram last decade
Not in the case of Arnica.

I have never noticed Arnica to cause any increase in hair loss and presume that the real reason for your problem is due to some other cause.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks for your reply. I will follow up after 2 weeks .

preetram last decade
I found two types : 1) Arnica Q, the mother tincture and 2)Arnica Oil ( which is green in color.) Which do I mix with the coconut oil?
preetram last decade
I have used the Arnica Q or Mother tincture for the 20% mix with virgin Coconut Oil.

I believe that the green Arnica oil is the extract of the leaves and it may not have the same effect.

What are your observations on your hair loss today after using the Arnica 30 ?
Joe De Livera last decade
It is the same as I reported last week. The only difference I have so far seen is that : I used take very long to sleep before taking Arnica 30. But after taking arnica 30, I sleep very fast though I have some disturbances inbetween.

I have just started using the Arnica Q + coconut Oil mix today.

And also taking the Arnica 30 in water 2 times a day.

preetram last decade
Mr. Joe De Livera,
It has been 3 weeks since I started using Arnica 30. But what I have seen is only more hair loss than before. I am also using Arnica Q +coconut oil (pure coconut oil and not virgin coconut oil, because i couldn't get it.).
I do understand that it will take some time for it to get right. But I am worried because I am seeing more hairloss now. + Most of them with positive results with Arnica 30, report improvement in 2 weeks.
So do I still continue with Arnica 30 for some more time and wait to see improvement ? Please advice.
preetram last decade
If as you state you still lose hair I would like you to use Weisbaden 200c. However this remedy may only be taken one dose every other day.

You can continue with the Arnica therapy and add the Weisbaden every other day.

Report response in 2 weeks.
Joe De Livera last decade
Is Weisbaden to be taken just as it is or to be succused with water? Please advice on the dosage, as to how many balls and how many times a day?
I will continue the Arnica 30 water dose.
preetram last decade
Hai Mr.Joe,
I could only get Weisbaden 30c. Please advice on the dosage.
preetram last decade
I'm afraid that Weisbaden 30 will not help you at this stage.

You must get the 200c and follow my instructions on taking it every other day.
Joe De Livera last decade
I would like everyone to comment on the case of arnica.
I have noted the following points.
1) Even i had started taking arnica 200 for hairloss x1 time daily. I only noticed increase in hairfall
2) The time for which i slept also increased and it made me feel sleepy in the afternoon also.
3) My mother was having a bruise, so i asked her to take arnica 200c x3 times a day. She also complained that she is feeling too much sleepy.
4) On this thread also it has been said that arnica has been responsible for sleep.

Any comments from fellow forum members.

I believe that I was the first person to discover that Arnica promoted the growth of hair about 3 years ago and when I was satisfied that it was helping a few persons I then shared this information on the forums that I visit daily.

It is possible that the reason for this remedy increasing your loss of hair is due to the relatively high potency that you have used of 200c which I recommend you stop forthwith.

Arnica is best used to arrest hair loss in the 6c or 30c potency in the liquid dose which is taken twice daily.

Arnica promotes sleep and I believe that it is this phenomenon that promotes the body to recover better and thereby help arrest the loss of hair in some way that I cannot understand.
I have mentioned this matter in many posts on this and other forums and you may have noticed that you wake up feeling very refreshed and rid of any aches and pains on the morning after the first dose of Arnica taken before sleep.

I would recommend the use of Arnica 6c in the liquid dose to anyone who reads this post as it acts as a tonic and helps to achieve a quality of life which other remedies do not offer.

It is also very safe to be used daily and I can personally vouch for this as I have taken it daily for the last 10 years and at age 76 I enjoy a BP of 120/80 with pulse 65.

If you are interested in my research on Arnica you are invited to visit my post entitled:
"Arnica the Miracle Remedy - Brief case histories" on:

Joe De Livera last decade
I am still taking Arnica. But as I couldn't get Weisbaden 200, I am yet to take it.

I am taking some alopathy medicine now for the cold and cough. But no antibiotic. Want to know if there is any problem taking Arnica, when I am on alopathy medication.

My scalp sometimes gets a bit itchy here and there. Not all over the scalp. But I don't have any visible dandruff. People who scanned my scalp said that I have oily dandruff. Will Arnica help to eliminate this also?

preetram last decade
No. Arnica will not help with Dandruff. Sulphur 1M is your remedy but it may only be used just once weekly or at most twice as it is a deep acting remedy and cannot be used like the Arnica that you are now using.

The Sulphur may be used in the dry dose as you do not want another bottle to choose from.

The Weisbaden is essential and if you live in India or the USA there should be no problem to get it. Or you may order it online from the ABC.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks for the reply.

Can I take Sulphur 1M on the same day when I take Arnica and Weisbaden?

preetram last decade
Yes you may do so but keep about 2 hours between each remedy.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks for the reply. I will start taking it once I get Sulphur 1M and Weisbaden and will follow up after two weeks.

preetram last decade
I just got my sulphur 1M and weisbaden 200. I am still using Arnica 30 in liquid dose and using johnsons baby shampoo.( no change in hair loss. It is still more).

Please let me know the dosage of following :
a) Arnica 30 in liquid dose 2 times everyday.
b) Weisbaden every other day : Is it 4 balls one time a day?
c)Sulphur 1M once a week. How many in a day?
