This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The bones are hard tissues and the extra growths in bones being structural changes reversal of such growths through medicines is a very difficult task. So, I doubt the chances of your recovery could be significant.

If you want to give it a try you may post details as follows. I will try my level best.

Write about following:
Age/Gender/Location/Country/Ethnicity. Height / Weight /Skin color/Eye color.

PLease explain everything in detail. Don't try to cut short.

All your past and present health in sequence oldest to newest. All details of previous treatments (oldest to newest) and their effects.

Write in detail about you – emotions, fears, sentiments, etc. your personality, physical parameters, habits, feelings about life, etc.

Write in detail about your life: social, family, occupational, schooling, childhood, etc. You should mention about incidences that might have influenced or impacted your mind / health / life considerably.

Write about what common opinions most people have about you; what most people comment /say about you frequently; how they react / interact with you & why?

Write something unique about you (how you are different from others or what makes you special).

Hi dr k and shailendra,

I wanted to share a prescription from an md homeo in Illinois USA. She began her career doing bone work.
There is an entire article with patient images etc on this in national homeopathic journal which I will post when I renew my membership.

The mdhas a lot of older patients with stenosis and bone spurs.
She realized that the bones in these people resembled hecla lava.

Sorry - continuing .. Prescription for patient was cal flour 6x tabs 4 each 4 times a day. Hecla lava 30 c in wet dose 2x a day.

After a few weeks her patient could move around much easier. Patient had become house bound . No gardening , no driving. After I think 2 months patient could do everything again and got her life back.

You need the cell salt and remedy ..
Patient was able to reduce doses and then eliminate them.

Thank you simone717, for the info and please post the article.

I had already worked on Sharmask96 case on available info and exactly the two remedies mentioned by you were on my mind. But you might be aware, if you are regularly reading my posts, that I always insist on posting more information. There are maily two reasons for this.

1. Like most prescribers, I do not like to prescribe impulsively without varifying on more details.

2. Keeping more patient information on records is academically very useful as it helps understanding the uses of remedies better in future.

I have used these two remedies for overgrowths of bones and my overall experience also is good. But I would like to note here that routine prescriptions were not that satisfactory as there are many other remedies for exostoses. What about them?

Just for illustration, Rhus tox is the only remedy mentioned for exostoses of sacrum. Well, now suppose we prescribe hecla and CF for a patient with sacral esxostosis what would happen do you think?

In most cases the exostoses will improve. But the patient is likely to cripple with some other health problem becase this could be a suppression. But suppose, if Rhus tox is the right remedy for the case and if this is prescribed it will clear the case, what we often call, from the root. This is where homeopathy outstands other systems of medicine.

Now, 'suppression in homeoapathy' has been subject of debate since long. Reasons are: several homeoaths are unaware of this fact and if they are aware they often conveniently deny this as classical homeopathy is definitly a hard nut to crack.
Of course, they are not to be blamed solely for this as our education system is inefficient.

When I was out of medical college with my degree even I was zero in practical aspects. But after several years of prctice I am still eager to learn more. If anything that I don't know and goes parallel to Homeopathic priciples, I heartily welcome it and work hard to implement in my practice. Even at this stage I don't claim I can achieve perfect cures in all cases. Like any human I am subject to err as well. But the fact is I analyse my case, realise and accept my mistakes, if any, and do my best efforts to improve on them.

Ignorance is not a problem but unwillingness to improve certainly is.

Thanks for your reply, I very much appreciate that you are on the forum
And reading your cases.

Initially you wrote chances of recovery not significant but we can try.

The doctor I wrote about was doing classical homeopathy and I guess frustrated with coming up with a constitutional remedy that was not helping. And she also used cf alone and it was not giving results. So she thought by using 2 remedies at once she was breaking new ground here-instead of one remedy at a time in the minimum dose.

This combo produced results for many of her patients but not all.Thanks for your explanation , I always want to learn more about all healing systems.

There was some positive effect on my pain but so many side effects. Hence I stopped the medicines. I was regularly doing exercises for neck and back which was having good effect on my pain and feel relaxed. But from 4 months, when I exercise the pain become worst and I stopped doing exercises.
I am taking medicine for 2 months from Homeopathic Dr but I don’t know what they are giving me.I have some positive effect of the medicine but not considerable.

Considering your history, to me it appears that your supliments are the main culprit.

Did you test your calcium and Vit D levels some time after starting suppliments? What was the report? Did it ever come to normal level? If so, did doctors tell you to continue suppliments or you are taking them on your own?

Also, could you just try to corelate any other important incidence in your life occuring in one year span before your current problem started?

Simone

Giving tissue salts along with a single homeopathic medicines is well accepted in India. Even the best doctors who believe in classical homeopathy do it routinely.

Hi Dr Kulkarni
I started the suppliments after getting lab tests with the advice of Dr. and regularly get the same tested in a interval of 6 to 8 months. When the level becomes normal I stops taking and whenever level goes down I again starts.
Regarding the incident related to problem I remember a jerk to my neck which was given by a barber after cutting my hair without taking my concent so many years earlier.He was ready for the second but I shouted on him and stopped him to do so.After few days of this incident I started pain in neck for which I took allopathic medicines as and when required and started doing exercises.
In the beginning of year 2015, I started feeling pain and stiffness in my left leg whenever I drive in heavy traffic as to press the clutch frequently.Suddenly in March 2015 when I woke up in moring my left leg and left arm was completely numb.A night before this incident I drove my car in very heavy traffic for a long time.

We need to go step by step in your case, so:

1. China 200c (it is also called Cinchona), pills (buy minimum qty dispensable at the shop), take 5 pills (for one dose) only once. (No repetitions)
Nothing else to eat or drink 1 hour before and 1 hour after the doses.

And wait for at least 1 week. Please don't be anxious; 1 dose of medicine will be sufficient for your problem. I am going to prescribe different medicines later. Keep patience.


Do’s & don’ts:
1. Stay away from Strong odors.
2. Do not touch medicines or spill them. Use the cap of container (of same medicine) to transfer the medicines.
3. Place the prescribed dose under the tongue and let it dissolve. Keep the dose for at least 2 minutes in mouth.
4. Keep medicine containers airtight, away from direct sunlight, heat, any smell and children.
5. Avoid strong smells and odors AFAP.
6. Do not take any other medicines for any health problems. Most symptoms go as they come within 24-72 hours.
7. Report any problems & seek appropriate advice.
8. Otherwise report progress after 1week.

I am suffering from Chikungunia fever at present.Should I have not to take paracetamol etc for the same.
 
Sharmask96 3 years ago
I am sorry to say that I forgotten to tell you that I have also the problem of chronic sinus.Some fluid is continued fall down
 
Sharmask96 3 years ago
I was under impression that your Chikungunya is resolved and accordingly I had given prescription. We have communicated several times but you did not mention this important point.

Well, now you don't take China instead, take Polyporus pinicola 1M, Just a single dose of 5pils. and report after three days. please do not take any other medicines, avoid even paracetamol unless you have too high fever.

Also take plenty of coconut water. Avoid all types of sugars.
