  2. Linda Clark says:

    I inherited many remedies of ” 1m, ” Rhus tox is one. The synovial fluid in my knees is deteratining. After researching am I correct that 1m’s are good to take once a day for acure cases.
    I am a 74 year old female who has studied homeopathic remedies for over 30 years (self taught.) I have helped many people through out the years, from howling female in nursing home to a person with a full blown painful toothache. Also helped a child from screaming pain that no one knew the problem, apon hearing the child I grabbed Apis Mel – in seconds the child in drying up tears said “thank you lady it doesn’t hurt any more.” I have many, many remedies which I inherited also. To replenish my supply I have found drhomeo to be the best company to buy from, here in the USA, easy shipping and great prices. I Do Not like companies that sell other products. I want my remedies to be handled with care and respect. And I appreciate how drhomeo does this. Thank you for answering everyone’s questions. I am singing praises about drhomeo to all who care.

    Dear Dr. Sharma,

    What is the best Homeopathic remedy for clearing artery build up(Arrteiosclosis)?

  7. Respected Sir,

    My sister aged 50 years had a fall in last week of februry,2019 and there was only a little pain in her
    Right knee for three four days and everything was normal thereafter. However, in the later part of April, 2019 , there was pain as well as in her right knee for which she had some homeo medicines ( Adel 4 etc.) as well as knee exercises for around three months. Although she has alittle pain still in her knee but the swelling is still there and she can’t bent her right knee fully. Her rheumatoid factor is negative, uric acid(in blood) is within normal limit, and all blood tests are within normal limits except the value of ESR and CRP are very high. On the advice of an allopathic doctor, CT scan of her right knee was done recently and the impression given in the report is as under:

    “H/O of injury. Present study reveals features of patellar instability with joint effusion and bursal collection. Sub-articular cystic focus is seen in lateral tibial plateau. Small osseous fragments are seen in the anterior aspect of the tibio-femoral joint space, along the cranial end of PCL. Diffuse soft tissue thickening is seen in the medial aspect of tibio-femoral joint suggesting MCL injury”
    She had a consultation with a Orthopaedic Surgeon , who besides some allopathic medicines
    advised her to undergo Short Wave Diathermy (SWD)for 15 minutes for 10days and thereafter some exercises.

    Is there any homeo medicine for complete cure of her problems ?

    With regards,

    Devanik G

  8. Justin M Abate says:

    Thanks for the reminder to take the arnica. First step is taking care of myself before helping others. Just forget sometimes and it is good to know this is beneficial. While I have only uses arnica minimally because it is technically a poison my knee bursitis likes to disappear and come back worse at random. This time it has not gone away. Should the arnica help long term or do I need physical therapy? Any help is appreciated.
