  3. Sujit Mitra says:

    Dear. Sharma,
    I am a regular fast walker in the morning covering 4/5 Km a day, even in few occasions covered 10/11 KM a day at my age of 64. This I have been doing since 1984 with physical exercise.
    About 2 1/2 months ago, I felt mild pain in my left groin. When I move my left leg at left or right at 45 degree or 90 degree, pain increases. But normal and slow moving does affect.
    I took advise of my doctor(- AMRI hospital, Kolkata) who suggested to do USG and rubbing Volini Gel for 6 Wks. Pain feeling now less but exists. USG report says to do MRI to exclude Athletic Pubalgia. Hypoechoic area is seen adjoining left pubic bone.
    Shall I go for MRI or any medicine in Homeopathy to cure me though a Homeopathy doctor advised me to take RHUSTOX 200, a drop in empty stomach for 3 days only. I am in a dilemma. Is there any side effect of this medicine?. Pl doctor , advise. Regards, Sujit Mitra, Kolkata

  6. Sitabai Betts says:

    Hello, I got poison oak very bad as a young woman in my late 20’s and swelled badly. I have a feeling that I carry this poison oak still in my body systemically. Now in my 60’s I have very painful hips and I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis and it is suggested in the coming couple years that I get a hip replacement. Meanwhile, I continue to do my physical therapy and search for ways to heal this without surgery. I am an active, happy, restless person with lots of energy and a regular walker. I also have only low levels of pain in the day (but restless sitting for very long), but at night I can’t sleep for the pain in my right hip. I toss and turn and get little sleep. Then I decided to try Rhus Tox 200C. It was amazing….I slept with very low-level pain and very little tossing and turning. Now I wonder if perhaps my hip osteoarthritis is simply an uncured case of poison oak from being a younger woman with a very bad case of contacting it on my skin. My question is this: Should I switch to a 6c or 30c dose and take more often, or a 1M or 10M and take it just once and wait? I have access to all these potencies. Thank you for your help.

    • Hi, last September I was diagnosed with Cronic Lyme. Leading up to the diagnosis I had heart palpitations and heart attic symptoms along with dizziness. The Lyme specialist I’m seeing put me on antibiotics after diagnosiing me with Lyme. I’ve been one two different antibiotics for almost 10 months along with a couple of herbal meds. Although they have helped with my dizziness and heart palpitations I now have joint stiffness and pain that I never had before. It’s most prevalent when I’ve been sitting for a while or when I first get up in the morning! The stiffness and pain seams to ease up as I move about.
      What can you suggest for homeopathy treatment and can this be taken with antibiotics?
      Thanks in advance, Briam

But only problem if she stops medicine her knees are not working. She feels severe pain and swelling in her right knee.When she continues to start taking medicine gets relief. Previous days she was suffering severely . Total body was not working , all joints in her body were not working, she was in bed. I was hope less and then I started homoeopathic medicine for 6 months (Calc Flour, Calc Phos, Calc phos, Kali Phos) and ayurvedic also. But no result. Now after getting aelopathic she is far better. But only she has knee problem. And I marked after taking aelopathic lot of side effects she is facing like bleeding in utros severely. It affects to utrous. So I want to continue homoeopathic medicine and aelopathic simultaneously. If homeopathic starts working then I will stop taking aelopathic.
