Re: To Joe, Sciatica From Joe De Livera on 2006-09-20
I have used Colocynthis 200 in the wet dose successfully in the case of patients whose sciatica did not originate as a result of an accident injury. However it may just work to help your dad and this is how you make the wet dose.

Get a 500ml bottle of spring water and insert 3 pellets or 2 drops if you get the remedy in ethanol into the bottle. Shake the bottle hard and give him just 1 teaspoonful after shaking it every time, twice daily.

You can also give him Arnica 30c also in the wet dose make as above.

His pain can be helped by Hypericum 200 also in the wet dose taken every 4 hours.

All remedies to be taken an hour apart.

Please report response in a week.


Re: Suffering from Carpal tunnel.... From horsetrainer on 2006-04-12
Thank you for the remedies for Carpal tunnell. It has worked. I have been suffering for years. All I have is only finger tip tingling.I can live with this !! I do wear the wrist support braces at night after strenuous work. Again thank you.

Re: Suffering from Carpal tunnel.... From Joe De Livera on 2006-03-15
Colocynthis 200c in the liquid dose can help you.

This is made by inserting 3 globules of the remedy into a 500ml bottle of spring water which you must shake hard to create bubbles which is called succussion every time, before you sip a teaspoonful 3 times daily for a week reduced to twice weekly when you notice relief.

Hypericum 200c also in the liquid dose made in the same manner will help to reduce your pain. Same dosage as above.

Keep 30 minutes interval between both remedies.

I can also suggest another remedy, Arnica 6c, which will also help you as this will improve the blood supply throughout your body. This will help in the long run and restore the damage that has caused the pain in your elbow for some years.


- I gave birth 3 weeks ago and am now suffering from Carpal tunnel:
- 1 week before the delivery I started to feel slight tingling in the right hand at night only
- Right after the baby was born (and still in the delivery room)the 4 fingers were numb & tingling and the pain started up to the elbow. Note that I had an epidural and was told that it would all go away after a couple of weeks as it was probably due to the fluid injected during the epidural.
- Now 3 weeks later it is still the same (altough the pain has gone because I were a splint I believe) the numbness & tingling is day and night and the left hand has started as well...which make it worse to take care of a baby!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I do not think that you are suffering from Carpal Tunnes Syndrome as you only complain of numbness and tingling in your hand.

It is possible that there is some other reason for your problem which we will have to eliminate by using different remedies in various potencies.

I would like you to start on Arnica 30c in the wet dose which I presume you know how to make. Dose is 1 teaspoonful 3 times daily. The reason for Arnica is because I wish to increase the blood flow into your hand which hopefully can help your ailment. You may like to know that Arnica is quite safe to be used when breast feeding your baby.

Please report your response in a week or earlier if you have a positive response.

Thank you for the suggestion. I do have bad blood circulation anyway so Arnica sounds right. Could you just confirm what is a wet dose as Iam new to homeopathy? Thanks.

Insert 3 pellets or 2 drops if you have the remedy in Ethanol of Arnica 30c into a bottle of spring water which you can get from a supermarket. Pour out about an inch from the top and shake the bottle hard 10 times every time before you sip a teaspoonful which is the dose twice daily.

If you are already aware that you blood circulation is bad Arnica can make a big difference in your life in the future.

Thank you I will try and let you know.
I was also suggested to take Gelsimium semperivirens or Opium for the side effects that would have maybe caused by the epidural. As a second opinion what are your thoughts on these?. Regards.

Hello Joe, I am not sure you saw my previous posting. Thank you.
windhaven last decade
I have just got the alert for your post and hasten to advise you not to take other remedies till you use Arnica 30c that I am confident will help you.
Joe De Livera last decade
Hello Joe,
I have been taking Arnica 30C in the wet dose for a week now and I do not see much improvement yet.
4 fingers on each hand are still tingling and numb at the tip of most fingers.
The left wrist is sometimes painful at night (I wear a splint on the right one and I have no pain anymore).

Should I just carry on taking only Arnica 30C or should I take something else at the same time?
Many thanks.

I presume that you are taking 1 teaspoonful 3 times a day after you shake the bottle hard (succussion).

Please confirm.
Joe De Livera last decade
yes i am.
windhaven last decade
Just to let you know that now after the 10th day I can feel an improvement. The fingers are not so numb and so tingling. So I will carry on with Arnica 30C only.
windhaven last decade
You may now reduce your dosage to just 2 doses per day and in another 10 days you can then take just one dose for life as I have done since 1996. I take the dose just before sleep and have no doubt that it helps me to sleep deeply thereby enabling the body to recover overnight to a level that has to be experieneced to be believed.
Joe De Livera last decade
I will do so. Just would like to know if I finish the bottle already made or make a fresh one?
Thank you.
windhaven last decade
You cannot possibly empty a 500ml bottle of water in just 10 days. If so you have taken far too much of the remedy as a bottle will do for about 3 months
as all you have to take is just ONE teaspoonful twice daily from now on.

If you have emptied your bottle you can make up another but do not exceed the dosage I have prescribed.

Please report your continued response often.
Joe De Livera last decade
I didn't explain properly I guess: I didn't finish the bottle at all, I was just wondering if the medicine can keep its properties for that long. Regards.
