Homeopathic Remedy Arsen Alb For Flu Allergies Asthma

Natural Remedies That Really Work:

Arsen Alb is one of the more commonly used Homeopathic Remedies.   It is considered by many homeopaths to be a prophylactic and a great remedy for general colds and flu. This makes it an ideal remedy to have on hand if you have decided to forfeit those much-promoted and often dubious flu injections.

Kent’s ‘Materia Medica’, a widely studied text-book on homeopathy, indicates Arsen alb for some forms of Asthma.

Physical symptoms indicating Arsen alb:  The patient characteristically feels chilled and needs warmth, except for the head, which is often burning.  The skin is cold and damp to the touch. Sweaty, cold and clammy.  There is often a severe headache when Arsen alb is needed.  ‘Irritable, restless and discouraged’ best describes the Arsen alb patient.

The Arsen alb patient is thirsty but cannot drink much at a time.  There is an ongoing thirst for frequent small sips of drink.

Mental symptoms indicating Arsen alb might include:  Feelings of extreme sadness, depression, wanting to die, mental anguish and anxiety.  Wanting to avoid people because of a fear you have offended them in some way goes with Arsen alb.  Ongoing sadness is one of the  classic symptoms of the Arsen alb patient.

Homeopathic Aconite is another good remedy for when the symptoms come on after getting damp or chilled.  But Arsen alb is another useful remedy to remember in cases of damp and chill.

I recently had a bad flu which got better with the use of Arsen alb.  This is all I used to treat this intensely debilitating form of flu.  I put up a post a few days ago on just how effective the Arsen alb was for treating this virus.  Within two weeks I was almost recovered, except for a trace of a cough.

Then I went to Auckland for a job interview, and to hang out with friends.  Unfortunately, on my way to my job interview, I got damp walking in the rain.

Getting wet in drissly rain just about always brings on a chill or a cough or cold of some sort, unless I can treat it right away with heat, hot showers, dry clothes, and the help of homeopathic remedies such as Aconite or Arsen alb.

Next thing, without my homeopathics and home comforts, I had severe bronchitis.  I had left my Arsen alb remedy at home, so I had to endure the cough until I returned home five days later, when I again began the Arsen alb treatment. As beforehand, I took four or five doses or more of the remedy during the day, five drops at a time for each dose.  I had a piano committment the following day which involved walking a distance in cold air, so the cough did not have a chance to improve on that day.  But on the second day of taking Arsen alb, with the whole day at-home, resting and keeping warm, the bronchitis has gone again.

Diesel fumes and other pollution in Auckland also seemed to excacerbate my cough, which had arisen as an aftermath flu and getting wet.  Each time I went out in my friend’s car, especially along busy, congested roads such as the motorway, I suffered an asthma-like difficulty in breathing.  I really don’t think I can live back in the city anymore.  The clean country air of Morrinsville really suits me, and I have had no chest problems, except for this bout of flu, since I came here eight months ago.

Arsen alb works very well for me to treat irritation of the lungs which arises from allergies.  I think it is a remedy well worth considering for people who get asthma, especially if they suffer from allergies of various kinds.

I must mention that I DID consume quite a lot of hot lemon drinks over this recovery period.  The lemon juice action works very well with Arsen alb, I think.  Remember not to use coffee, or very little of it, if you are using Homeopathic remedies to cure infections of any sort.  Coffee negates the action of most homeopathic remedies.  So – Wait to get well before you begin drinking coffee again.

Homeopathic and Herbal Remedies For Sunstroke

Natural Remedies For Sunstroke and Pleurisy:

New Zealand Heatwave Before Christmas 2012 Caused Sunstroke.  This post gives an account of the homeopathic treatments I used.

Note:  If you have sunstroke, you should certainly go to a doctor or alternative  health practitioner.  But this is how it all happened, and what I did to remedy the problem of sunstroke with subsequent pleurisy of the lungs:

I have had sunstroke twice before in my life, many years ago now.  I never expected to experience it ever again, since I have taken to wearing a hat most days when I am in the sun, and I am cautious about getting too much exposure.  My health certainly benefits from getting into the sun for short periods.

But just a few days before Christmas, we had a heat-wave in the little town which I have just moved to.  This town is around 130 ks inland, and around the same distance south of Auckland.  I moved here only two months ago.

Being new to the place, I guess I was caught unawares as to the dangers of the sun, which is much more intense here than the heat you get at a seaside resort such as Orewa,  from whence I came.

The day I left to go on my journey to Dunedin to see my family for Christmas, I mucked around in the garden for an hour or so, watering my plants well so that they would survive the week ahead without me.  I had on a cap, but the sun got the back of my neck, which is the most vulnerable spot for getting sunstroke.  Then I walked down to the town around 2PM to get a $2.40 Lotto ticket.  By this time the heat was incredibly intense, reminding me of the days we had heat waves at Kilkivan, an inland town in the middle of Queensland, when the temperatures would soar well beyond 40 degrees.

I hurried home when I realized how hot it was, and how it was making me feel ill already.

The next day, when I arrived in Dunedin, the effects of the sun the previous day were hitting very hard.  My children thought I had jet-lag.  But it was only around 3% jet-lag. I felt dizzy.  I was losing my balance and seeing stars when I looked up.  My temperature was extremely hot, especially around the head, I had an intense headache and I felt nauseous. My head was throbbing madly and I was experiencing some pain at the nape of the neck, stretching upwards on the right side of the scalp.

I hoped I would not have to go to the doctor or to the hospital.  I had left my community services card at home, so a trip to the doctor would be expensive.  Plus I preferred to avoid their pharmaceuticals if I could help it.

The only thing to do was to rest and get stuck into the homeopathic remedy which I chose out of my daughter’s collection, and to drink plenty of water.

Cooling the head by covering it with wet cotton cloths was the next thing.  Putting a wet band around so that the temples are covered, and another at the nape of the neck, is very helpful.

Homeopathic Remedy For High Temperature In First Stage Of Sunstroke: Aconite and Belladonna

The first day, when my hot head, chronic headache, and the accompanying dizziness and pain were the most worrying symptoms, I used a homeopathic combination called ‘Fevamed Relief’, which had Aconite 24x and Belladonna  30c in it.  These two are great for complaints which appear suddenly:  Aconite is always good when the symptoms suddenly appear, usually due to a chill or getting damp in a shower;  Belladonna is another one for when symptoms come on suddenly, but with the patient having a bright red face because of fever or high temperature. This ‘Fevamed Relief’ mixture also had Arsenicum alb 60x and Echinacea 24x in it.

This preparation was one specially designed for the feverish symptoms of babies and small children, but I found it to be equally effective in allaying the sunstroke symptoms which I was experiencing.

If I had been at home, I would have used either Aconite or Belladonna on its own, or alternated the remedies,  as I do not usually buy these combination remedies.  This was a ‘Naturopharm’ remedy, whereas I always buy Weleda homeopathics.

I took two or three squirts of this Aconite/Belladonna combination every 20 minutes or so for the first couple of hours.  Then I panned out the dose to one every hour.

I could feel an instant effect as soon as I took the remedy, although it took all that first day for the temperature to drop to near normal.

Pleurisy of the Lung Followed the Sunstroke:  Homeopathic Bryonia came to the fore.

The next day I found that the pulsating head, with accompanying headache, had gone.  But now there was intense pain in the right side of the chest and in the back on the right side,  which was probably pleurisy of the lungs. Bronchial problems can often come after over-exposure to the sun.  The peculiar thing was that it was a right-sided chest complaint, whereas in the past I have always had left-sided chest complaints.

Breathing was painful, and my chest hurt when I moved the torso around to get up off a chair or out of bed. I could hardly move.  It was possible that the Aconite/Belladonna preparation might have helped the bronchial problem too, but I felt as if this remedy had run its course and that no more help would be gained from continuing it.

I decided to switch the treatment to a homeopathic specific for bronchial troubles.  My daughter had a combination which had Bryonia 24x in it, so I beamed in on this one.  Bryonia is excellent for lung problems.  This remedy also had Colocynthis 30c, Carbo veg 24x, and Mag phos 60x in it.  This combination was called ‘Colimed Relief’, another Naturopharm baby remedy.  But again, it worked well for an adult too.

I took this remedy for two days, using around 10 doses of several squirts each the first day, and reducing to around 6 doses of several squirts the second day. On the second day of taking this Bryonia remedy, I coughed for around an hour, which brought up most of the fluid from the lungs.  By the end of that 2nd day, the chest and back pain was completely gone, and breathing had returned to normal.

This all saved an expensive visit to the doctor or to the hospital.  However, sunstroke can be dangerous, so I would urge you to see your doctor if you have these symptoms.  Try the homeopathic remedies only after you have visited the doctor, just to be safe.

Herbal Remedies for Sunburn:

A stong tea allowed to cool, of either Chamomilla recutita flowers, or Elderflower (Sambucus nigra), or Lavender officinalis, can be used to bathe the sunburn.  These herbs can be mixed together to make the infusion if you wish.

St John’s Wort is supposed to be a wonderful healer for radiation burns of all kinds.  Use just a few drops of the blood-red oil on the affected parts.

Aloe vera, something which many people have in their gardens or flower-pots,  is also very soothing and cooling.  Just slice open a leaf and squeeze out the gell to apply directly to the burnt area.

Homeopathic Hypericum or Calendula creams are useful to soothe and help the healing of the skin.  Homeopathic Cantharis is another which can be applied topically to reduce the sting of sunburn.  Homeopathic Cantharis in liquid form is possibly another alternative to Aconite, Belladonna, Bryonia, etc, for taking internally to treat sunstroke symptoms.  Personally, I have not ever tried this remedy.

Dr John H. Clarke, M.D., in treating sunstroke, lists most of the remedies which I found on those two baby homeopathic preparations of my daughter’s:  Aconite, Belladonna and Arsen alb.  These ones, which I found to be very effective, are some of the first remedies for sunstroke which he gives in his book ‘The Prescriber’.

I found ordinary ceylon tea good to drink during this period:  Tea actually helps bring down the temperature, which is why it is so frequently drunk in India.

Over the first couple of days after getting the sunstroke, I also found that putting a cold wet facecloth over the forehead and on the nape of the neck helped.

 

 

Useful Homeopathic Remedies For Measles

Childhood Illnesses And How Homeopathy Can Be Used As An Alternative To Vaccination or Immunization.

DSCO 1536

It is worth keeping in mind that vaccinations do not always work.  Some common childhood illnesses have developed strains which are resistant to vaccination antibiotics.  And sometimes complications can arise from vaccinations or immunizations as they are called.

I stopped having my children vaccinated after I witnessed  my first-born child suffering dreadfully because of vaccination/immunization injections.

Unhappily, I agreed to the first standard vaccination at 3 months old, after which his skin became reddened and blotchy, his little body swelled slightly, and he cried all the time because of digestion troubles.  These symptoms took several weeks to subside.

He had returned to a normal sleeping pattern, the swelling gone down, and the crying stopped, by the time the plunket nurse came around to our country home to give him the second shot at only 6 months old.  She had insisted that there was no other way to protect my child, other than to vaccinate, and that being in the country we needed to do this very urgently.  Again, sensing that this was NOT the right way to go about protecting my child’s health, I let her in to give my bub his second shot.  Same thing happened, only worse this time.  It was obvious that he had stomach pains as a result of the injection.  He swelled out as if he had water retention, and his skin became reddened again. He cried for long periods at night and his sleeping pattern was again disturbed.  It took a longer period for his health to return to normal after the second dose of the immunization medicine.

So when the plunket nurse turned up at the door again, when my baby was 9 months old, I had made my mind up that no child of mine would ever be vaccinated again.  My family, after that, had not even a tetanus injection.  Instead of relying on these antibiotic vaccinations, I read and read and read as much as I could about homeopathy, vitamins, colour therapy, herbs, and natural diets.  I also developed the use of the pendulum to help me select just the right homeopathic remedy for any suspected condition.

Mind you, it was always good to know that the hospital was available to us should anything go wrong.  A couple of times, when my youngest son had a midnight attack of croup, or whooping cough, we set off for the hospital in the middle of the night.  But we were spared the necessity of visiting the hospital after all:  I had already given him homeopathic Drosera just before leaving home, with Vitamin D and A rich Halibut liver oil capsules,  and these remedies suddenly did the trick as we drove along in the car, as we headed for the hospital.  His breathing became as regular as any healthy child after 5 minutes or 10, and so we turned the car around and went home again.

Measles, Mumps and Chickenpox can all be treated effectively with homeopathy, if the right remedy is given.  But because it can take some skill to choose the right remedy, I do not suggest that you simply decide not to vaccinate and hope for the best with your selections. You really need to have an experienced homeopath handy if you have no experience in using homeopathy.  So – see your doctor, herbalist, naturopath or professional homeopath in the event of any childhood illness.

However, the following  remedies, taken from Dr Stephenson’s book entitled  ‘Helping yourself With Homeopathic Remedies’, may be used as guidelines to help you to learn more about homeopathy in the treatment of measles:

For measles with sudden fever use Aconite or Sulphur.  You can start off with the Aconite, using a few drops of homeopathic Aconite every fifteen minutes for around 6 doses if the fever persists.  As the fever subsides, you stop using the remedy, or perhaps give just one dose per day.  Aconite, if used just for the first day or two, can be followed by homeopathic Sulphur, just one or two doses per day of the standard over-the-counter potency. I used to use the 6C, but the common potency these days is the 30C.

Homeopathic Sulphur, or Arsen alb, are useful remedies to use when the itching and burning sensation of the skin may be a problem.  The itching may begin after a few days, so you could switch to homeopathic Sulphur, or Arsen alb, after the initial Aconite has begun to work.

Bryonia is a wonderful remedy for bronchial complaints, and this can be used if bronchial troubles set in as a complication of the measles.  Drosera is another great one I would recommend for bronchial troubles, which actually isn’t mentioned in the list which Dr Stephenson gives. Don’t forget that Vitamin A to help overcome the infection.  Vitamin A and D, found in Halibut Liver Oil capsules, is very good in combatting lung infections.For small children, I would bite the capsules open and squirt the contents into my babe’s mouth, swallowing the remains of the capsule myself.  I sometimes used around 4 or 5 of these in one dose, repeating the same around an hour later if the infection persisted, and then no more.  You can overdose on these vitamins if they are used for a prolonged period.  So no more than two of these bigger doses, to be on the safe side.

Unicef Are Using Vitamin A as part of a measles prevention campaign in Syria.  At last, Vitamin A has earned its place in orthodox medicine.  It was always there, as physicians of old used to prescribe cod liver oil for everything.  But drug companies, and modern trends to ignore the remedies of old, put Vitamin A in cod liver oil in the back of the cupboard.  Now it is in the forefront again.  Praise Be.
