For Joe DeLivera - Prostate EnlargementDear Joe,
I am known to you as goingdownhill and you have been making recomendations for me for GERD.
This message is not in reference to GERD & myself but rather my husband and enlarged prostate. So, I thought I would start another thread.
I saw in several posts your suggestions for using Arnica 30c for prostate enlargement and since my husband has this issue I passed along what I had read.
He has been taking Arnica and not necessarily at the dosage you suggested. (Sometimes due to his work schedule, he can't do specifically what you reccomend) However, he has been averaging a couple of doses of 2 pellets under his tongue at least twice a day with the last dose before bedtime.
I am happy to report that after taking the Arnica for approx 2 wks he is reporting an improvment in frequency and better flow. He is pleased with the results.
I thought I should update you to confirm your suggested usage of Arnica for this symptom.
This has worked much better for him than the prescriptions that he has had in the past and NO SIDE EFFECTS. Great!
I should also note here that he has been checked previously by MD and his PSA numbers were fine. I know you always stress that should be checked just in case it is more than just enlargement.
So, thanks to you, his problem is being resolved and this is wonderful.
My question is that since we look for cures using homeopathy when might he be safe in maybe swithching to one wet dose of Arnica before bedtime since that is a more cost effective way of taking or should he just continue indefinitely with the pellets under his tongue.
Thanks for your patience in reading this post and your help.

I am indeed gratified to note that both you and your husband have benefited from the therapy that I have suggested and I am glad that you recorded his success with using Arnica instead of the usual drugs that are prescribed by Uros who are only aware of a drug usually a beta blocker to help with improving the urine flow.
In my case my discovery of Arnica was serendipitous. I had been using both Conium and Sabal Serrulata after I discovered that I was allergic to the standard drug used in 1996 for keeping the waterworks flowing and I discovered that Arnica which I took for a skin wound helped in a manner that was far superior to the standard remedies used for this purpose. You will not find Arnica used for easing urine flow in any Repertory classical or otherwise used in Homeopathy. I have always maintained that it is this process of sharing with others that is important in Homeopathy but unfortunately this is not the case and it is unfortunate that Homeopathy has that aura of mystery about it among the classical school of course and it is sad to note how they belittle my singular efforts to make this science more acceptable to the patient by following my lead of prescribing for the ailment instead of the symptoms and causative factors which usually brings forth a remedy even with Homeopathic software which is far removed from the obvious remedy that I use.
I am indeed happy that your husband has discovered that Arnica is better than the drugs that he was using and the point that he should remember is that he will have continued success in the treatment of his BPH without any nasty side effects that the drugs used which could cause other more serious side effects like Diabetes, Heart problems to name just two in the long run.
Please reassure your husband that Arnica can only help him as it has helped you but for another ailment, and it is just the fact that a fellow sufferer from BPH is now able to go back almost to normal that is important and I hope that others too including my classical colleagues will take note of this post and use Arnica for their next patient who consults them for BPH.
He can take Arnica 30c in the wet dose as I and many other of my patients have vouched for the fact that it is more efffective to the dry pellets although this may be used if he cannot always access the wet dose. I would recommend that he takes 2 doses of Arnica daily for the rest of his life. I presume that he is aware that I have done so but in just one dose since 1996 and I am convinced that it has done me a lot of good at my advanced age.

I regret to inform you that I do not have any experience in the treatment of Hepatitis.
I am aware that it is caused by a virus which can be passed on through direct contact and it is possible that remedies like Gelsemium can be useful to provide prophylactic cover to others in the same household if a person is infected. The virus has to take its course and I believe that only palliative treatment can be used to enable the patient to ride out this disease.
I would recommend that other members who may read this thread advise this member who seeks help.
