Sulphur 6C - Side Effects ? Page 2 of 4

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Dear Deepak, you should not be dosing continually with the same potency of any remedy, as you will never find cure this way, as this will only result in accessory symptoms which you have never had before.

This is the correct way in which a remedy should be applied, as observed over 200 years of Classical Homoeopathic practice:

Start low, a 6 or 30c, just one dose, or up to 3 on one day. If there is improvement, wait until this improvement subsides, and then step up to the next potency i.e a 200c. Keep stepping up in this way until the remedy no longer gives any relief, or you suffer from aggravation, THEN stop. In either of these situations the remedies use for you has come to an end, and you may then go on to try something else.

Do NOT give the same potency for many days or weeks, and do not switch a remedy while it is working for you, this is not Homoeopathy.

If the Sulphur helped in a 6c, but did no more in a 30c, then it has either come to the end of it's benefit for you, or a nosode needs to be applied.

While I agree the change to Arsenicum was a good one, as was also obvious from the benefit obtained, again you are dosing too much with the same potency. If it has provided relief, then simply wait a few days to a week for the effect of any other remedies to subside and then step up to a 200c and observe the results. If it provides no more relief, then you should not take it again.
In this instance, I would then recommend taking another Sulphur antidote based on the symptoms, and observing the results. If this has no effect, then it is unlikely that you are proving Sulphur. If a further Sulphur antidote however DOES provide further relief, you should then apply any other antidotes as needed, and ONLY then go on to apply another well selected remedy, after waiting for a short period for things to settle down.

Best wishes.

So you have been progressively reducing the medicine intake in your body...which is in line with the Principles of Homeopathy.

Either you reduce the number of doses per day or move to a higher potency (which is more dilution of the med)...you are following the rules of Homeopathy.
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Dear Deepak, actually the above mentioned 'principle' re: reducing doses per day is more the rule for ACUTE prescribing (as is the repeated dosing method period), and even this is questionable as being in line with classical prescribing, as the ACTUAL rule is, if there is improvement then STOP, and only repeat if there is relapse or a plateau. Either way though neither really applies to your situation, as neither eczema/psoriasis nor asthma could be termed as actute.

Best wishes.

Hello Deepak,

How much spice do you eat in your food every day (24 hours). And what variety ??

More than:
1. 5gms
3. 15 gms

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
The only spices I include in my food are the usual spices included in indian cooking.

They are mostly red chilli, turmeric, jeera, coriander, ginger and garlic.

My intake of spices are low. May be 5gms. spicy food gives me a heartburn so I take medium spicy food.

By the way, My asthma is of chronic nature and I think it is best to treat asthma before psoriasis. So I would like to switch to a long acting constitutional remedy.
I think ars. alb will help me in case of acute attack but not every day and often.

I am considering Nat Mur for my allergies. Is it a good choice ?

thanks for both jacob and pankjaj varma. you seem to have slightly differing views in homeopathy but I believe you are experts in your chosen fields. you are indeed helping a lot.

deepak80 last decade
Dear Deepak, you are welcome, but your Asthma and Psoriasis are of the same cause, most likely Psora (although possibly Tuberculosis) and as such one remedy should be selected which covers both. Remember, it is one remedy for EVERYTHING manifest at any particular time in Homoeopathy, rather than many remedies for individual conditions or symptoms, which provides true cure.

I would aslo hold off on The Nat Mur, as this will simply confuse the case.

Best wishes.

Dear Deepak,
Do you also smoke..if you do how many cigs a day?

During this time ..did you also take some allopathic meds...which ones and how many? (During teh tiem of taking Ars. alb.)

Which city you live in?...What is the pollution level there ... in water, air, pesticides in food items etc??

Do you drink mineral water all the time or also tap water?

Your replies will help further in the case analysis.
Best wisehs,
Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
No, I don't smoke.
My father was a chain smoker. So I had been exposed to Cigar Smoke.
When exposed to any kind of smoke I feel like suffocating.

I regularly take Singulair, Salbutamol(Albuterol in USA) inhaler as needed, Also allergy meds zyretec once or twice a week.

while taking ars alb I was able to stop the inhaler completely. Also avoided few doses of Allergy Med. But could not stop asthma med Singulair.

Live in USA. Not much pollution here, water is chlorinated, So I use filterd tap water.

thank you

Thanks Deepak.

The fact is that people from Indian sub-continent/South Asia....take so much spice in their food that a single dose of a med gets anti-doted very quickly.
On top of it...pollution, smoking, water contamination, pesticides in vegetables etc. further anti-dote the single dose.

So a few doses for some days are necessary to show result.

Secondly, Dr. Samuel Hanhemann was a German...and his theories were based on German population who eat very little spice, eat cold food (not steaming hot foods as eaten in Indian subcontinent)....so many suitable modifications have to be done while advising dosage, potency , repeatition etc.

His theory was based on atmospheric and city conditions a few hundred years ago.

The world has changed a lot from that time.

I am posting all this here because Jacob has been suggesting a single dose.
Which , in my way of thinking and analysis does not produce any impact on the Vital Force.

The Vital Force has to be nudged a number of times for it to start its own action.

(Vital Force ...is a terminology of homeopathy).

So if you think...my way has benefitted you...and you wish to continue with it...pl. go ahead. Take two doses of Arsenic Alb. of same potency per day.
If you feel the problem is returning back...again increase it to three times a day.

I think in your life time ...you must have eaten 'a few tons of spices' in your food.

Best wishes,

Mr Varma, a good point (the first actually), and one I will take on board, as no, I do not have experience in treating those with a 'spicey diet'. However, as you will see from practically all my posts, INCLUDING the one above, I do actually state either a single dose OR up to three on one day, to ensure the dose is actually administered. YOU on the other hand though, recommend taking remedies many times a day for 5 days or even weeks, and this is a different and totally unrelated situation entirely, and was the reason for my pointing this out above, as this is COMPLETELY against the founding principles, and not required regardless of any corporeal or atmospheric conditions. So your explanation for continual dosing above is actually with little substance.

According to some 2nd dose of same potency if reaction has started will antidote... but neither here nor there...

Homeopaths... what about a dose of carbo veg to clear effects of growing up with chain smoker? Which may allow prescribed remedy to work better and consistently.
busymominme last decade
'Antidote' the REACTION, possibly, although this will begin again after the last dose (on the same day), but not the remedy itself, heh.

And if Carbo-veg is indicated by totality, sure, why not?

You guys (Classical Homeopaths) still want to cross the ocean (from London to New York) in the aeroplane made by the Wright Brothers out of bicycle parts.

Much progress has taken place in Aeronautics after the Wright Brothers first flew their aero-model.

So also in Homeopathy...much more progress has been made after Dr. Hanhemann propounded his initial Hypothesis.

Also Homeopathy is called an 'ART'...not a Science. So that you can try and master differnet strokes.

Science is precise....Art is not....different strokes give different results ....sometimes more than expected.

I wanted to report that today I had severe epi-gastric pain mainly in the upper abdomen. When I had taken sulphur too I had this similar pain and it kept me awake through the night. I am now taking nat. phos 6x hoping that it would help me. The pain is aching, burning kind.

Don't know if caused by ars. alb. because I used to get this pain before also though very infrequently.

Around navel, how much above navel...which side ..left or right.

do you like eating lot of sweet preperations?

Are you most times in a hurry to meet deadlines??

by nature ....always in a hurry with your activites??

Do you remain angry...pent up anger ??

Pain in hip joint/ knee??
which one?

Is the pain releived by bending double?

Anything in your environment that caused this...like an argument/ a sudden pressure of deadlines etc.

Arsenic has done its work...will have to suggest the second med based on your replies which will bring further cure.

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Homoeopathy isn't a 'cut and slice' system of medicine, you cannot simply choose a tiny segment of it's doctrine to give credence to your own odd methods of prescribing, or support a 'part-time interest', it is a complete system, and makes sense as such only to those who have both studied the subject, and more importantly, those who are able to understand.

Those who merely shun the true, classical way, do so for two reasons, they either know nothing about the subject at all, or they simply lack the ability to understand it, and therefore place the blame on this true, classical way, for their own shortcomings.

As stated before, a bad workman will always blame his tools, and I don't think I can really add anything further to this debate, either here or on any other thread, Classical Homoeopathy is a lot like life...you either get it...or you don't ;)

The pain was about 2 to 3 inches above navel. Pain was in the center, with more tenderness towards the right side. Nat Phos indeed helped and the pain was reduced.

I do not like sweets much.

I like salty chips ... but do not take it often.

Bending didn't relieve pain, pressing the area made it worse.

By nature I am not a hurried person. I am in a normal pace I think.

I don't remain angry or do not show anger much. But I do have suppressed anger..

I the winter I used to get a mild pain in both my knees, more in the right side.

Nothing in the environment caused this. The weekend was really gud.

I still have a dull pain but not severe.

deepak80 last decade
Some doubts have been created by Jacob. Let me clear them.

Reproduced below from Boericke MM ...about Arsenic Alb. :

Dose.--Third to thirtieth potency. The very highest potencies often yield brilliant results.

Low attenuations in gastric, intestinal, and kidney diseases; higher in neuralgias, nervous diseases, and skin. But if only surface conditions call for it, give the lowest potencies, 2x to 3x trit.

Repeated doses advisable.


Please mark the words 'Repeated doses advisable'.

Some guys will only believe the printed word.

Will guide you further Deepak.

That is the liver area.

Is there a skin rash in that area...3 inch above navel...right side??

Do you have yellowness in skin, eyes etc.

Any pain in right eye / shoulder??

Past history of Jaundice/ liver complaints ?

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
What other illnesses have you gone through from childhood till now??
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Dear Mr Varma...yet again.

There were no doubts being cast on the use of Arsenicum, and again if you had read, I actually stated the prescription was a good one. I also made no mention of potency.

What I WAS questioning, was the repeated doses being applied as if the condition were acute, which it quite obviously is not.

As for Boericke, while his work in materia medica has proved to be of the utmost value to us all, he was by no means a classical Homoeopath, evidenced by the fact (if you have actually read his mat med with rep cover to cover) he often prescribes both mother tinctures and potencies using allopathic principles. Moreover though, I have never found any of his assertions regarding dosage, potencies etc to be of any value at all.

Maybe 'some guys' are looking at the wrong 'printed word' for such information, Boericke, of course, being a favourite amongst...begginers ;)

I hope this clears up your confusion.

No skin rash on the stomach.
I doubt it was gastritis. pain was on the center but right side felt tender.

Yes My skin is slightly yellowish. Constipated every other day and it gives me a dull headache.

At present no pain in the eye or shoulder. but had a frozen right shoulder three months back whic went away by itself.

I don't have any past history of jaundice or liver complaints. None was detected in blood tests.


As child, asthma whenver I had upper respiratory infections.

Allergies to dust, mold etc from childhood.

At age 12 had eczema, lasted for around two years.

At age 22 - Frequent asthma attacks which became chronic.

Used to have occasional muscle cramps in the legs.

At age 28 had an Ovarian Cyst removed by surgery.

I occasionally used to get such epigastric pains which I usually treated with antacids. Never thought it might have anything to do with my liver.

Oh you are quite welcome, although you are probably a lot older than I am. You are confusing age with experience and knowledge ;)

Pl. try Chelidonium 30 C..three times a day.

Before starting with that....2moro morning (or the day you can get the med)...take a dose of Dulcamara 200C

Then 24 hours gap....start with Chelidonium.

Stop Arsenic....it has done its work....moved the toxins from their place to throw up additional symptoms.

Until you are able to get the meds...you can take a dose of Arsenic whenever you feel difficulty in breathing.

And if these 'Classy' fellows want to show their low class...boot them out !! (Wink ).
