The ABC Homeopathy Forum

probable allergies

We are originally from India, moved to California 9 yrs ago. My husband, age 38, starts feeling not so good, whenever the seasons are changing, mostly spring and fall.Right now he has lot of gas in stomach, doesn't sleep well, has congestion in the nose as well ears. echos of own voice and heartbeat in ears. frequent urination, sometimes every half hour. Even otherwise, his urination frequency is high - every 2 hrs or so and more under stressful conditions. He has been to the family doctor a couple times, who diagnosed the condition as seasonal allergies and prescribed the usual allergy medicines. But due to the even worse side effects, he has not been taking those. A homeopath suggested Ars. Alb. 30 which helps sometimes.
Naturewise he is a nice jovial person, when not under stress or anxiety. But he gets anxious easily. Then he gets very irritable and picks on me a lot. Very restless by nature, cannot stay at home and relax, has to be out somewhere. Weekends are difficult, if spent at home. As expected travelling is his passion. Wants to visit every possible destination on the planet, which sometimes causes discord as we have kids 9, 5 and 1.
Even though I have no such intentions, but many times he gets the feeling that I do stuff to specially irritate or displease him. Gets insecure easily.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Your husband's frequent urination can be controlled with Arnica 6c Dose 3 balls 3mm ø taken 3 times daily. Shortly after taking the first dose, he will observe that the time between visits to the toilet are lengthened and he will eventually stabilize in about a week. He can take the Arnica quite safely for as long as he feels that it is doing him some good and after he is OK he can take just one dose last thing at night as it promotes deep restful sleep.

No coffee and cola drinks and also no preserved meats which contain saltpeter like ham and sausages.

Some more symptoms that I wanted to add to this:
eczema like patch on the right underarm and on the testicles. continuing for many months.
finger tips get dry and get cuts with th onset of winter.

It is possible that the patches are due to the reaction of the skin to the soap used. You may try using any Baby shampoo like Johnson's instead of the soap on the affected parts as its chemical base may eliminate the patches. It will also eradicate under arm BO.

We can deal with the problem of his dry finger tips later as this involves another remedy which can be postponed till his frequent urination is helped by the Arnica.

What has the response to the Arnica been so far ?

Petroleum can also be considered for his 'patches' and his dry skin, but I wonder if it will react with the Arnica 6 which will address his main problem of frequent urination.

The Johson's Baby shampoo should control his patches and I dont think that it will interfere with the Arnica.

I meant after you finish with arnica.Just a suggestion.

Dear Joe
Does coffee really antidote homeopathic treatment?
bandarbabu2000 last decade
Interesting question. Quite frankly I have no evidence that coffee antidotes Homeopathic remedies if taken in moderation.

I use less than a teaspoonful of Nescafe with my milk in the morning just once daily and have not observed any negative effect. However if I am on any remedy, say to stop a cold or cough, I do not take the coffee and stay with chocolate instead.

Strong brewed coffee is reputed to neutralize remedies and this can be believed. However I have observed that Sodium Nitrite or Saltpeter in preserved meats like ham, sausages etc. neutralizes any Homeopathic remedy almost instantly and the ailment is aggravated in a few hours. Coca Cola and other similar beverages taken up to 4 hours before sleep will keep one awake and they too are reputed to neutralize Homeopathic remedies.

I take 3 balls Arnica 6 before sleep every night and believe that this is the secret of my good health at age 75 with BP 120/80 pulse 65. I first started on this remedy in 1996 to help my prostate and have taken a daily dose since that time.

Suggest you give Arnica 6 a test and see how it helps you to sleep deeply.

Thanks Joe for your response.

I started a thread regarding coffee and will you mind if I paste your reply there.

Your suggestion regarding Arnica 6c is interesting.
But the only question is if you take it daily,will it not interfere with other medicines when you have to take them for other problems?

Kamala pl.excuse this digression,your case will get the same attention from Joe as usual,I am sure.

Dear Murthy,

If I have to take any other remedy say to stop a cold, I dont take the Arnica at night.

You may like to know that to stop an oncoming cold I use Nux V 30 as soon as I have the first sneeze and the tickling sensation in my nose which is usually blocked by then. 2 balls every 2 hours and 4 balls at night instead of the Arnica and this usually aborts a cold in 48 hours. I have also used Gels, Hep Sulph and Sulph but have discovered that Nux is easily the best remedy to abort the virus.

If the virus migrates to the throat I use Bell 30 and this stops the infection going down into the lungs.

Joe De Livera last decade
I would like to make an amendment to my post above which I made in September 2004 about the latest remedy that I use to stop an oncoming cold.

I use Ferr Phos 30x dose 2 tablets every 3 hours as I find that this is more effective than the Nux V 30 which I used in the past.

It is interesting to record that I used to catch colds very frequently about 20 years ago and since experimenting with various remedies myself, I have been successful in keeping colds and throat infections at bay for the last 3 years.
