  17. Laura Riemer says:

    Dr. Sharma,

    I have a meniscus tear that I have had since January. My doctor tells me it could take up to six months to repair itself. I strongly believe in homeopathic medicines over RX prescriptions, as I have seen them work for me in the past when doctors could not cure me.

    I went to a health food store and it was recommended to me to use UC-II Joint Formula made by Emerald, and try it for 30 days, 2 capsules a day. I just finished it, and I still have the pain and discomfort, and it is not healed yet. I don’t want to spend/waste money on another product that will not work. I saw your article on Amica,Phys tox,Ruta,Bryonia, Symphytum, and Calcarea Carb.What do you recommend that I try next to heal my meniscus tear that will actually work and lessen the pain and discomfort, and get this to heal? Please help; I need your advice.

    • Dr sharma
      I got injured while working out. It’s like my knee joint suddenly collapsed. Turns out it’s not a meniscus but a ligament tear on the left of my knee. Was advised rest and some glucosamine. It’s been now more than four months . The knee area still hurts. When it heals a little and if I bend sit on the floor or start exercising the injury resurfaces and I am back to where I started. Now I am taking few physio therapy sessions but progress has been very slow.
      Please suggest some medicine for healing and strengthening the area around the knee

      Thanks for your help
