Dr Kadwa Please help with remedy for plantar fasciitis and knee pain

Hello Doctor
Please advise on remedy for severe knee pain and plantar fasciitis in foot. I have tried steroid shots, but they have had no effect. I have been told to get a knee replacement, but I am trying to avoid surgery.

Knee pain has been for almost one year. Foot pain has just started within the past month. Steroid shots have not helped. Pain is so severe, and It is difficult for me to walk. Pain is relieved with ice. But starts again when I stand up and start walking.

Appreciate your help.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take Natrum Mur 200 in morning and Rhus Tox 200 in evening for 10 days and report back.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thank you doctor.

My local store only has natrum mur 30 and rhus tox 30. Are these okay? If not I can try to find the 200 strength online and order.
I also want to confirm that rhus tox is okay for me, since my pain gets worse with motion?

30 potency is okay. Rhus Tox is not contraindicated if that particular modality is absent.

Hi Doctor

I was able to get both in 200 strength. I have been taking both for 10 days now.

The pain has not gotten worse, but has not gotten better either. Should I continue as there has been no harm?

In addition, there is a wound on my foot ( on the heel) from where the doctor injected the steroid shot last month, which also is causing pain, and this may be contributing to me not feeling any improvement. is there any solution for this?

Many thanks!

Please take Ledum 200 and Hypericum 200 twice a day for 3 days. There should be a gap of an hour between these two remedies. Please stop other remedies for the time being.

Hi Doctor,

It has been some time, but I competed all of the Natrum Mur 200 Rhus Tox 200. There is been some relief! Should I continue taking these, or leave some gap and then continue?

Or what is next step in remedy
