Osteoarthritis in the right knee

Hi, I would really appreciate some help.

I have osteoarthritis in my knees, specifically the right knee. I am finding it very difficult to climb and descend stairs, and walk down slopes. I have been prescribed diclofenics and paracetamol, but I do not want to take them.
I had posted this before and answered many question from a homeopath who is now suspended, so I have to start all over again.

Info on remedies already taken, prescribed by homeopath online but not here in this forum:

April 2017 Nat Mur 1m , 2 pills in half litre spring water, shake and drink over the day. next 6 days, refill bottle, no more pills, shake and drink. Result: no change, so another week of the same was prescribed. No change to knee, but I did have reactions: lots of phlegm, severe cramping in left leg, hot flushes (I have never had them before), teeth sensitive, and diarrhoea.

1st June Sepia 1M in water as before. Result: No change to knee but tiredness in the morning worse, more phlegm, breathing difficult uphill and talking, feel as if getting or finishing a cold, and feel very intolerant, irritable and swearing more!

14th June Sulpher 30ch. Knee slightly better. Waited a short while, then as knee worsened, took remedy again for a week, this time in water. Pain shifted from under the knee to around the knee cap more.

30th August Ruta Graveolens 30c twice daily for up to 7 days. Also recommended cranial osteopathy. Ruta made no apparent difference. Cranial Osteopath said that Psoas muscle on right side is too tight, causing the femur to pull in too much, so the foot tries to rebalance by twisting the tibia out. I am continuing the osteopathic treatment, and also have purchased new orthotic insoles.

22nd October Rhus Tox 30c , one daily for a week. No change. The homeopath seemed to feel there was little point in prescribing more whilst I am receiving the osteopathic treatment.

Then in February 2018 I messaged this forum, and was prescribed syphilinum 1M .. 4 drops One dose only. Once a life only. No more no repeat. In a New separate disposable glass with some water in it. This had little effect, apart from dreams very vivid, though not unpleasant and very tired in the morning.

I was then given Silicea 30c . 2 pellets twice a day for 3-4 days.
This I have just done. I only managed 3 of the 4 days as it has had an affect: my lower back really aches, knee is more painful, soles of feet sore when walking, dry phlegm in back of throat, difficult to get rid of, voice hoarse, and very very tired for most of the day.

Apologies for such a long post......

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You mean silicea helped ?

Well, I am aware that sometimes a remedy can make the symptoms worse before they improve, and that is what I HOPE is happening here. So I am content to leave it to continue working if that is what is best.

Is there anyone who is NOT suspended willing to make any further comment, or do I need to repost this for the third time??

Please start taking Radium bromatum 30c, twice a day for 15 days and report back.

Radium bromatum is a wonderful remedy for severe pain in all over the body, but especially good for pain in the knee and ankle joints.

I would suggest you to put few pills / drops in some water, mixed it well then take 1 teaspoon (as 1 dose) from there.
In this way, you can minimize homeopathic aggravation.

Conchiollinum 12x is very useful for building cartilage back. But it is a long term treatment. It is also, sometimes, a pain killer.
dosage: 4 drops daily
if it increase your appetite, take it after meal or before going bed.

Thank you, I will order Radium Bromatum from my farmacia today. Should I order and take the conchiolinum at the the same time?

You may take both the remedies if you are comfortable taking more than one remedy at a time.
Tui 5 years ago
Thank you for your help. I am comfortable with that. Farmacia is closed today in Spain so will try tomorrow. Would you recommend 2 or 4 pills Radium in 50cl of water? And if the farmacia can only get pellets of conchiolinum and not liquid, how best to take this?
ticatee 5 years ago
Please put 2 pellets(as 1 dose) of Radium brom 30c, into some water (about 30 ml), and mixed it then take 1 teaspoon from there. So you will be using 4 pellets a day.

And if you can't get a liquid form of homeopathic remedies, it's ok to use pills / pellets form.

I usually suggest to take 2 pills/pellets as 1 dose.

the below dilutions will be suggested for making combination for Osteoarthritis knee cartilage repair and for pain
1.Argent mettalicum 3X
2. Rhus toxicodendron 3X
3. Colchicinum 3X
4. Nyctanthes arbortristis 3X
5. Symphytum officinale 3X
6. Ruta graveolens (Ruta) 3X
7. hecla lava 3X

but the from above 3 medicines not available in dilution .

i have question is the any other way to make the combination of above medicines in 6ch potency dilution is right or not or any other potency power in which i make .

Why not ask the person who has suggested this particular combination remedy?

There must be a reason for using such a low potency like 3x...

Hi, I have received the Radium, but the farmacia cannot supply the conchiolinum. I can order this online from Helios, in oral form - is a 10ml size large enough? And do I take the drops on the tongue, or in water?
Thank you 💖
ticatee 5 years ago
Yes, 10 ml would be enough.

You can take a few drops on the tongue.

Hi, I have finished the Radium - 15 days, but it does not appear to have made much difference. I have started the conchiolinum 4 days ago as this had to be ordered online. Right knee joint still very unsteady when using stairs, but walking down slopes is now manageable.
ticatee 5 years ago
Thank you for the update.

Now, I would like to change the remedy to Bryonia 30c, twice a day for 10 days and see how you feel after that.

You can also continue conchiolinum.

And please be patient that your condition may take some time to see some improvement.

Hi Tui, I am in to my seventh day on Bryonia, and I have suddenly developed quite an extreme thirst, and a lot of aches and pains in knees, legs, hips and mid to lower back. Also increased tiredness during mid afternoon. Should I ease off the Bryonia for a day or two to let it continue to work through?
ticatee 5 years ago
Yes please stop taking the remedy.
Tui 5 years ago
Hi Tui, there has been a bit of a hiatus since I stopped the remedy, as I was performing in a play the following weekend and so took diclofenics for three days, then had cranio osteopathic treatment the following week. Therefore I could not judge at that time any further result of the Bryonia. I can say now that the thirst is no longer a problem, and my mobility has improved slightly. Oddly enough the going down stairs or slopes is now less of a problem, whereas going upstairs is still a problem. Before it was much more difficult on downward movements. Should I take more of the Bryonia?
[Edited by ticatee on 2018-05-16 18:22:08]
ticatee 5 years ago
No, no more Bryonia.

Please start with Calcarea fluorica 3x, twice daily and Symphytum officinale 30c, once daily.

For acute pain, Hypericum 200c as needed.

Hi Tui, I have ordered the remedies - how long do I take them for?
ticatee 5 years ago
Please also ad Arnica 30c once daily.

And prepare the remedies in 2 separate bottles, filled with 125 - 250 ml spring water and dissolve 3 pills or drops in there and take 1 tabelespoon as 1 dose.

Succuss 5 times before taking the remedies.

You don't need to do this with Calc-f 3x, just for Arn 30 and Symph 30.

Take the remedies for 2 - 3 weeks and see how you feel.
