A Case of Chronic Osteo ArthritisHere is a case of chronic Osteo Arthritis treated successfully, as per advice of Joe De Livera - Thank you Joe.
The patient is a Mechanic, 65 yeras of age suffering from this ailment for over 20 years. He had a chronic Arthritis, deformed and swelled joints leg, and fingers. He was unable to hold any thing with his fingers or walk without limping. After trying all treatment options availabale for him unsuccessfully, he came to me for giving a try with Homeopathy remedies.
As per advice of Joe De Livera, I gave him Hypericum 200C, and Rhus Tox 1M, both wet doses. He started this treatment on July 08, 2006. He also was given Arnica 30 -Wet dose, to be taken twice a day.
Today, August 04, 2006, it was a surprise to me, he showed up with a smile in his face, and tears in eyes -thanking me for taking away the unwearable pain he was suffering from for over 2 decades. I noticed that the swelling of joint of his fingers also had gone. However he is not cured completely, I would say cured 90%. He still have pain in his shoulders and joints of hands and legs. I think he is in stage 3 of Osteo Arthritis - the fibrous tissue of his fingers had compeletly jointed by bone. In this stage, only a little improvement in function can be expected.
He was advised to stop Hypericum, and continue with Rhus Tox, split dose for another 6 months or so together with Arnica 30 wet dose.
I believe this information will be beneficial for those who are suffering from a chronic Arthritis and are willing to go through this treatments that Joe De Livera experimented successfully and given out for the benefit of others.
God bless you all.

Thank you for recording your experience with treating your friend the mechanic with the 2 remedies that I believe I was the first to experiment with, which I first did with my wife and her sister. Arthritis runs in the family and in this case they were both treated by a world renowned Homeopath in May 2005 who was here to help the survivors of our Tsunami and I was responsible to helping him in his efforts to do so in areas south of Colombo. The remedies he prescribed were Sepia and Medorrhinum which unfortunately did not have the slightest effect on their arthritis. Both sisters had been under treatment from specialists in Colombo for many years and had used almost every available drug including the dreaded Vioxx for their ailment and finally were persuaded to use the remedies that this famous homeopath had prescribed.
It was at this juncture that I used Rhus Tox 1M and Hypericum 200 both in the wet dose and I must admit that I was surprised to note the response of the two sisters to this medication within the week. The homeopath referred to was also surprised at the almost instant response which he noted when he returned to Colombo on the way back home when he stayed in my home overnight.
I shared my discovery with others on 4 Homeopathic Fora in May 2005 and I am glad that at least one person, you Sam, remembered this therapy which I must admit is unusual and certainly not what a classically trained homeopath would have used. The fact however is, that this therapy works and I must record that the response of your friend to the remedy within 4 weeks is parallel to the response of my wife and her sister who showed vast improvement within the first week when both had stopped all drugs which they were using and which were slowly poisoning them both. I am happy to record that my wife can be considered completely cured of her Osteo Arthritis today and does not use any medication any more. She still has the 2 bottles of the remedy in the refrigerator for use if she has the slightest pain which usually results when she strains her knees by overuse when walking or climbing but it is very rarely that she has recourse to the medication. Her elder sister however has to use the remedy on a daily basis and has recently had Sciatica to add to her discomfort which I am treating with Gnaphalium 30c in the wet dose which helps her.
Thank you once again for sharing your experience with members of the ABC and I must add that it is this form of sharing our experiences with other members of this forum that is important and makes my daily involvement with it so satisfying.

I must emphasis that am not a Homeopath qualified from a Homeopathy College, but I was admitted as a Memeber of Homeopathy (MHH)in late 1969. Since then, I love this system and using it for the benefit of my family and others who ask for my help.
Here, how I treat a case:
Before I start treatment I put the case in 3 stages.
1. Prepiration.(Finding the Constitutional remedy for the patient)
2. Eleminantion ( Eleminate obstracle if any - for example in case of HBP, if Cholesterol is identified, treating first for Cholesterol) and
3. Treatmentment for complaint exists - Most of the cases, the initital complaint will disappear
I am not sure this method fits to any systems of classical or other treatment process. However, this is the way I treat a patient and I believe most of the Homeopaths are doing the same.
Once again, thank for all of you.
God bless you
