This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I am glad that you have discovered that Rhus Tox 30c is the remedy for Cervical Spondylosis or Frozen shoulder. You may like to know that it is my default remedy for your problem and many have been cured.

This is best taken in the Wet dose which is made by inserting 3 pellets or 2 drops of the remedy if you have it in Ethanol, into a 500ml bottle of spring water which you will shake up hard before you sip a teaspoonful 3 times a day for a few days when your discomfort should be stabilized. Reduce the dosage to just twice daily immediately after for a week.

Please post your response in 3 days.

JS, is it 'frozen' because it is too painful to move in any other position? If so, sounds more like bryonia. Did your homeopath try that one? Rhus is usually indicated when there is pain but the pain eases up a bit after some movement, like a 'rusty hinge'. What remedies have you tried so far?

For frozen shoulder the tested remedy is causticum 30c,twice daily till the complaint is over.

I am a new member to the forum.
I want to ask remedy for frozen shoulder for my father as we have tried some allopathic medicines , but no positive effect. Following is the history ;

Frozen shoulder : Since 5 months
Age : 60
Diabetes : Yes , since 10 years, takes insulin, no tablets
Weight : 70 kg
Height : 5 fit 6 inches

He was a football player in his young age and has worked as a football coach. In the month of May 2007 he had TENDON ACHILLES ruptured in
his right leg as he was playing on the ground while coaching. In the month of June 2007 he had the surgery for the same (Tendon Achilles). After 2 months of rest his doctor told him to walk using WALKER , in that he has to lift his weight on his shoulder as the leg was in the plaster. After using WALKER for around two months , his doctor advised him to remove the WALKER and walk slowly and normally. He started walking normally but since then after using WALKER he started feeling pain in his right shoulder. Now it is around 5 months his pain has increased so much , he can't sleep well in the night and complains for pain in his shoulder. He is doing hot water fermentation and exercises daily 3 to 4 times to lift his hand up but he can't make it to the extent , his hand motion is very restricted upward as well as backside.

After that he planned to go to a orthopedic doctor and he advised him to go for the XRAY. I am typing the report below for reference ;


1) Sclerosis seen at greater turbosity s/o tenditis
2) REST OF THE No obvious focal bony lesion seen.
3) The gleno-humeral & acromio-clavicular joint spaces normal.
4) Articular margins are within normal limits.
5) Soft tissues appears normal.



1) Osteophytes seen at C3 to C6 vertebral bodies.
2) Generalised osteoporosis seen.
3) Loss of lordosis seen
4) The soft tissues are within normal limits.


He is very very upset , because recently he had the surgery and for that he had to take the rest for around 6 months. By nature he is very active and don't stay at home normally , he likes walking and going here and there.

Please help us by suggesting some effective remedies.

Any help on the last post please .

I have had amazing results with the Causticum 30C, suggested by sajjad. I have had problems with my right shoulder for 7 months and have been trying remedies and physical therapy. All those helped, but nothing cured the problem. Then last week the left shoulder also started being very stiff and painful and I was not able to lift my arm and driving was very painful, almost impossible.

So I was so happy to find these postings. I had already tried Rhus Tox and that only helped a bit. I bought the 30C Causticum yesterday,dissolved 3 pills in water and sipped it twice yesterday and already this morning I am feeling improvement and can easily raise my arm. I will continue the remedy 3 times a day and I expect complete healing soon.

Its amazing and I'm very grateful for this forum and to those with knowledge who post their helpful suggestions.

blood circulation is poor.. What is the remedy for normal blood circulation and what is the remedy for strong nervous system?
Mustafa786 9 years ago
We don't have broad remedies to create health in the way that you mention (strong nervous system or normal circulation). We have specific remedies for specific problems, so the only way you will get the correct remedy is if your problem is described in great detail so that an individualized prescription can be made.

Dear Ananya,
Take Ruta 200 one dose and next day onwards take Causticum 30 thrice daily for a week. If required, Ruta may be repeated after a week.
In addition, exercise
your shoulders by placing your fingers on the shoulders and rotating your elbows in a manner that they touch when front of your chest and are pushed fully back (to the extent you can bear the pain). Do this exercise three to four times daily.
