For Nesha - Help with Eczema Treatment

Hi Nesha,

Thank you for replying to my post on your 'THIS FOR THAT' post regarding Silicea for treatment of eczema.

You asked me to post more of my mental and physical symptoms so that you may assess if Silicea would help me.


- Always thinking about the future.
- Ambitious and hardworking (but recently have been distracted as my eczema has worsened and I am always thinking about it – focused on finding a solution to this)
- Look for quick fixes to problems
- Plump
- Sometimes constipated
- Recently have become cold (past 6-7 months), especially my hands, feet and nose. My partner has also noticed this sudden change. Was never like this before. This coincides with the time I had a flu jab and my eczema worsening. (I now know the harmful effects of vaccines, since being introduced to homeopathy)
- Straightforward thinking, don’t like complications, relaxed attitude.
- Sometimes stubborn
- Used to enjoy socializing. But recently since my eczema has worsened , I enjoty relaxing around the house.
- Cold at every change of weather (runny nose)
- Deep seated eyes with dark rings around
- Belch and burp often
- Ravenous hunger, always hungry and thirsty.
- Like loose, baggy clothing
- Have abit of a big belly - it has reduced in past month as I have cut out a lot of things from diet that I feel may be causing my eczema
- Developed a craving for sweets and chocolates (one of the things I have cut out from my diet in the past month).
- Before, used to sweat alot, especially my forehead. Now sweat very little, I assume because of the cold weather.
- Enjoy taking very warm (hot) showers, soothes my itching.
- Urine is clear most of the time, yellow when I don't drink the usual amount of water daily.



The main things I have cut out from my diet are:
- Dairy products
- Meat
- Wheat
- Chocolates
- Sweets
- Tomatoes
- Citrus fruits.

After a month since cutting these out of my diet, I have seen a slight improvement in my eczema now. I also try and eat more veggies, raw salads and fresh fruits now.


Abit about my eczema now:
I have had this terrible condition since I was 13 years old – I am now 24.
All the areas of my skin with folds are affected by eczema – elbows, front of elbows, wrists, knees, front of knees, feet, ears, forehead and neck. The itching I get is unbearable and end up scratching really intensely, tearing my skin. On the worst affected areas, it become moist (sweaty) after scratching. It also seems to get worse during the winter months.
I have been using cortical steroids to control the eczema since then, but am now aware of the harmful effects of suppressing the condition. It has been 3 months since I greatly reduced the cortisone. Maybe another reason why my eczema has worsened recently.


I hope that is enough....if not, please let me know.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to look at my case and help...very much appreciated!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
As you mentioned in your other post, my intake of acidic foods (like wine, tea, coffee, other hot foods etc... ) has increased.

Thanks.

"stickyfingaz99" :
1. Discontinue any or all Homeo medicines, that you may be taking now.
2. Wait for 3-5 days.
3. Take Psorinum, as you have read earlier. Before starting Psorinum, ALSO obtain "Coffea Cruda-6c" for SOS purpose.

CAUTION : Taking Psorinum will cause an aggravation, say upto 20%. Allow it to aggravate. If you are not able to tolerate the aggravation, THAN the ANTIDOTE medicine is "coffea cruda-6c" taken two pills every 30 minutes till aggravation symptoms subside. No psorinum afterwards. Wait.

- Psorinum will take care of your cold tendency and your skin condition. This is not your constitutional medicine, BUT can be taken with your regular constitutional medicine, which I presume is "Lyco", from your case history.
- Do not take any other medicines when on above treatment. It will confuse the case and lead nowhere.
- REDUCE YOUR acid in your body, the itching just simply disappears.
- Over-sensitising or Over-thinking or over-focussing on your Eczema, will simply cause and trigger severe itching.
- You can go ahead with LOCAL application of allopathic steriod creams, which you can discontinue WHEN your symptoms start subsiding. The suppression factor is only temporary and the after-effects is negligle or nil, though there is no element of Cure in the steriod creams.

YOUR BODY CONSTITUTION IS ACIDIC. ALSO, from what you have mentioned regarding feeling better with the Eczema, after you stop / reduce the following :
Dairy products
- Meat
- Wheat
- Chocolates
- Sweets
- Tomatoes
- Citrus fruits.

I can easily infer from your posting that YOU ARE HIGHLY ALLERGIC to many other foods alongwith / besides the above mentioned. You must get your COMPLETE FOOD ALLERGY test done (about 300 foods in number) from a qualified Allergologist. Pre-Prepare a exhaustive list of the entire range of foods and its ingredients (all spices, all grains and pulses, all possible vegetables, all possible fruits, all possible non-veg's, all possible nuts and dry fruits, all possible root vegetables, all possible leafy vegetables ...........) besides the suggested list of the allergologist and test allergies for the entire lot.

Discontinue your allergen food and manage the acidity environment in your G.I.Tract and the entire range of Skin disorders just simply disappear. Start again and the skin disorders come back. Homeopathy or no Homeopathy.

IT IS IMPORTANT, that you identify your entire food allergies and DISCONTINUE them permanently, to be free from skin troubles and other expected pathological troubles. If you continue the medicines and also continue the allergen foods, the medicines will fail. TO COUNTER food allergy, there is an technique called "sub-lingual medicine" (normally called as "hyponsensitization" treatment) which is tailor-made specifically for the allergic patient by the Allergologist himself, to be adminstrered under his guidance only.

I also suggest you to re-read the other links provided in the "Eczema ..." post Link : http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/51562/
and understand the functioning of the G.I.Tract and other details, which will also help you to be fore-warned and pre-prepared about your food and diet.

ANSWER THIS :
1. Are you mostly (or always) worried about your financial status / position.
2. You prefer more of starchy foods (rice, potato, wheat, bread, oily & fried junk foods .....)

IF you answer "YES", to above, the following medicines will have to be taken regularly for a few weeks (or even months).
a) Calc.Flour.-12X, 4 tablets 4 times a day. (Bio-chemic triturated tissue salt)
b) Nat.Sulph.-12X, 4 tablets 4 times a day. (Bio-chemic triturated tissue salt)
c) Nat.Phos-200X, 2 tablets 4 times a day (Bio-chemic triturated tissue salt)
All above taken together. Do not change quantity or power of medicines.
Any confusion, ask here...
Do post here, when the above benefits you.

Hi Nesha,

Thank you very much for the lengthy reply. Very informative.

Yes, I think Lyco is my constitutional medicine. Have read about this remedy in materia medica, and my characteristics/symptoms match closely to it.

Regarding the Psorinium, what dosage should I take? Sorry, but you did not mention that above. Please advise.

I shall try and get an allergy test done, have been reading up on that alot recently too. Should I get an allergy test or an intolerancy test - I believe they are both different?

Answers to your 2 questions above: YES
1. Are you mostly (or always) worried about your financial status / position.
2. You prefer more of starchy foods (rice, potato, wheat, bread, oily & fried junk foods .....)

So I should get the 3 tissue salts mentioned. How long do I take for....until my eczema starts clearing up? Can I take these with the Psorinum?

Also, you mentioned that I can continue with my allopathic steroid scream application? Will this affect the homeopathic treatment (as I have read in several other posts previously)?

Though I would tell you about two important mental symptom that I forgot to mention in my initial post - it might help with your diagnosis: I bite my nails, and am a sensitive individual.

Nesha, thank you very much for helping and following my case here. I look forward to hearing from you again!

1, Food allergy test and food intolerance test are two different things. Food intolerance are usually done on in-house patient basis and takes long time and long observations to have SOME results.
- Food allergy test should be sufficient, to determine those allergen foods, that would have direct relation to skin disorders.
- Allergy test is a precise and specific test, AND SHOULD BE done only by a qualified - Allergologist and NOT by a dermatologist or a asthmatologist or a kinisologist..
- Do allergy test on individual foods, as mentioned above (pre-prepare your own food list) and allergy test should NOT BE DONE on FOOD GROUPS. It will give false readings.
2. Allopathic steriod creams are okay to use sparingly (very thin coat lightly rubbed in) on a daily basis. It's got no cumulative efffect and acts only superficially till used after which the effects simply wear off. It is very much okay to use these creams when on homeo treatment. You will yourself start tapering off the cream usage when the skin disorders start clearing up.
3. I am not suggesting any constitutional medicines for you, YET. No need as such, Hence your anxiety (involuntary nail biting) and sensitiviness can be covered later.
4. If possible, give your detailed mental picture, with examples. Also physical picture, your social life, your family life, your work life, your sex life, your financial life ... to arrive on something conclusive, which I presume can all be taken care of by Lyco, but the potency will have to be determined.
5. Your current treatment portocol as follows :
a) Psorinum-1M, liquid, 1-2 drops direct on your tongue. EVERY HOUR. Total 4 - 5 doses in one day only. Stop. No more medicines after this for the next 40 odd days.

CAUTION : Taking Psorinum will cause an aggravation, say upto 20%. Allow it to aggravate. If you are not able to tolerate the aggravation, THAN the ANTIDOTE medicine is "coffea cruda-6c" taken two pills every 30 minutes till aggravation symptoms subside. No psorinum afterwards. Wait.

b)
a) Calc.Flour.-12X, 4 tablets 4 times a day. (Bio-chemic triturated tissue salt)
b) Nat.Sulph.-12X, 4 tablets 4 times a day. (Bio-chemic triturated tissue salt)
c) Nat.Phos-200X, 2 tablets 4 times a day (Bio-chemic triturated tissue salt)
All above taken together. Do not change quantity or power of medicines.
- Put above medicines in half cup of hot water, dissolve, sip very slowly, keeping each sip on your tongue for 2-5 seconds before gulping. Repeat. Finish this one dose.
- Do this atleast 3 times day.
- 1000% safe with No aggravations WHAT-SO-EVER.
- Do not change quantity or power of medicines.
- Takes time to show results. You should start feeling good around 10th day onwards.
- Do it for many weeks and months.
- This should take care of most of your problems.
- Above can ALSO be taken with any Homeopathic potency medicine, Allopathic ..... (Though best is to avoid all other medicines)

Discontinue your allergen food and manage the acidity environment in your G.I.Tract and the entire range of Skin disorders just simply disappear. Start again and the skin disorders come back. Homeopathy or no Homeopathy.

Do read all the links, repeatedly and understand things and consider this "prevention is better than cure". Anything else, let's know.

Hi Nesha,

Thank you for clarifying the queries I had.

But feeling much healthier and happier :)
My eczema has calmed down in the last few days - the itching is much much less.

I am having trouble getting the Psorinum. I shall try and get it as soon as I can and start it as recommended. Shall also start with the Bio-chemic triturated tissue salts.

My dermatologist/allergoist had taken some of my blood for an Immunoglobulin IgE test about a month ago. The results came back last week which showed a very high IgE count. Another appointment has been scheduled with her in one week’s time to discuss this high IgE count.

As mentioned earlier, my eczema has calmed down in the last few days though - the itching is much much less, but the skin is still very dry and flaky. I am not sure what helped:

I had taken one dose of Calc Carb 200c about 3 weeks ago, and was advised to wait a month for any improvement.
Also, about a week ago I had boiled some Neem leaves in water and drank the resulting brew - very bitter and nasty. I had some of this concoction last night again. The Neem brew was recommended by an ayurvedic practitioner quite some time ago, but only managed to get the leaves recently.

I have not had any changes to my diet - only change is that I have included 2 glasses of pineapple juice a day. From your experience, do you think the Calc Carb could have helped? Do you think Calc Carb could be my constitutional remedy? I initially thought I do fit this profile. (But maybe I am Lyco – I shall post more of my characteristics as requested in an earlier post for further deduction)
Or do you think the Neem leaves brew had something to do with this? I have been reading up on high IgE counts related to parasitic infections. And Neem leaves are used to rid the body of parasites in Ayurveda. I shall prepare and drink more of this brew for the next few days.

Nesha, what are your thoughts on the above?

Anyone else have any thoughts on the above?

Thanks!

Hi,

Hope to hear your thoughts on my above post - please reply!

Thanks.
 
stickyfingaz99 last decade
"stickyfingaz99" :

1. igE count is no way connected to parasites
2. Calc. carb. may be helping you. It could be your constitutional remedy should the drug picture fit you pathologically and mentally.
3. Neem leaves, do help for worms. You could also obtain neem leaf powder for the same purpose for brewing. Note : Neem creates mucous dryness and skin dryness.
4. Pineapple juice, No data with me so can't say.
5. High igE count by default indiciates blood disorders (pH below 6.5) and liver malfunctioning or not functioning to optimum.
6. Continue with what you are doing, it you feel that it is helping you.
