Nat Sulph 6x can cause symptoms of AsthmaI am copying below a post that I have just read with my response which I believe should be of interest to Homeopaths.
Re: Weight Reduction with Nat Phos 6x. Latest News From libra on 2005-10-13
After reading your posts in this forum, I advised my daughter 40 years to take Nat Phos 6x for weight reduction. She inadvertently took Natrum Sulph 6x. In her own words, after half an hour of taking first dose of Natrum Sulph 6x I had a mild attack of Bronchial congestion and cough with burning sensation in the Bronchial tube. When I took second dose after dinner, half an hour thereafter, I again had the above symptoms with greater intensity and in addition some itching in the Bronchial tube, lungs and inside of the back. At this I realized that I was taking wrong medicine. By the next morning all these symptoms subsided. By the way I had these symptoms in my childhood.
I have seen for the first time that a first dose of homeopathic medicine brought out the old symptoms. Will you offer comments on this. Should she take Natrum Sulph 6x for clearing her old symptoms before starting Natrum Phos 6x for weight reduction. Thanks
Nat Sulph 6x taken accidentally From Joe De Livera on 2005-10-13
Thank you for having brought the reaction that your daughter had when she took Nat Sulph 6x instead of Nat Phos 6x. The reaction that she had was what is known as Proving the remedy. You may know that Homeopathy was born when Hahnemann discovered that if large doses of Quinine extract were used that symptoms similar to Malaria were noticed with rigors and high temperature.
Your daughter was proving the remedy which I prescribe in almost all cases of Asthma but for this ailment a higher potency of it Nat Sulph 6c is used which is far less a dose when compared with Nat Sulph 6x. The 6x potency is exactly 1/1Millionth of the salt Sodium Sulphate or Glauber's Salt which is a chemical commonly used in the formulation of medical drugs. Nat Sulph 6c is exactly 1 Million Millionth of this salt and it will be observed that it is 1 Million times the dose that your daughter used accidentally. However I am glad to note that no damage was done and I shall remember this news that you were kind enough to record on this forum.
I hope that other Homeopaths will note this phenomenon as this all contributes to the study of Homeopathy. Incidents such as this help us to remember more forcefully that what we have studied in out texts have been formulated by the classical authors after actual tests (provings) were made by them over the past 150 years.
I notice that you have used the first person 'I' to report this case of your daughter who according to you, took the Nat Sulph 6x instead of the Nat Phos 6x by mistake. Please clarify who used the Nat Sulph 6x. You or your daughter ?
There is no need for your daughter to take any medication except the Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after both lunch and dinner, for weight reduction. Please tell her that the taboos of coffee and cold drinks must not be used during treatment as weight reduction does not occur if these taboos are used.
Thank you once again for having brought this accidental use of Nat Sulph 6x instead of Nat Phos 6x to my attention.
Please report your daughter's response to the Nat Phos 6x in a week when you can expect a drop in her weight of at least 1 pound.

This is the type of sharing that we can all do on the ABC to enable others to also open their eyes to the realities of Homeopathy.
It is sad to see the attitude of some homeopaths, some of them classical and others pseudo classical who have attacked me in the past, perhaps in the hope that I will wilt under their attacks and withdraw from the forum. This has not happenned up to now as others who have read my posts and have benefited from my advice, often rush to my defense.
After all it is not the method, classical or otherwise that matters to the patient who posts on the forum seeking a cure. He does so in the hope of a quick recovery which I usually provide with the assistance of a few others who use remedies like I do directly to treat the ailment and not only the causative symptoms which the classical types use which usually do not work in curing ailments like colds, coughs, headaches, asthma and eczema to name a few.

You are a blessing to many people Joe, and I know that many have noticed. If your way of prescribing can introduce people unknown to the broad use of homeopathy I am pro. But when prescribing this way, it must be a routine to always recommend that the patient continue to use homeopathy seeking a professional after the main problems are solved. Only on a personal consultation one can go deep into the case so that one can be enlightened for the rest of ones life, with the magic of homeopathy.
I agree with you on the subject that if one can give a remedy that gives a quick fix for a person in despair, which can convince them that homeopathy works, if the alternative is to use dangerous drugs.
So i see a important role for you Joe in the future of homeopathy: As a gatekeeper which introduces the masses to the wonders of homeopathy!
Keep up your noble work Joe, and remember to advice the patients you help on this forum to seek deeper into the art of healing through homeopathy, when they feel reliefe of their problems from your prescriptions.
And do not forget these wise words on your way Joe:
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

I am humbled by your kind thoughts on my method of treating patients who post on this forum and also seek my assistance by email and by personally consulting me.
I am aware that I have caused many ripples in Homeopathic circles by advocating treatment of the ailment directly in a manner that is akin to the standard allopathic manner of prescribing. I have been advised that my method was not advocated by Hahnemann and others of the classical school and must therefore not be used by me in the treatment of any patients. It is fortunate that I only treat patients who have discovered me and have come to learn that my own methods of healing have in some cases worked miracles of healing which the classical school cannot perhaps emulate. I also treat all my patients free of charge and although I am not qualified they seem to locate me although I am not prominent in homeopathic circles in Colombo where I live.
I have also been warned that my method invariably causes other more serious repercussions to the patient like Asthma following a cure of Eczema or vice versa etc. However I have to record that I have never experienced this phenomenon so far although I have been successful in curing many chronic patients who suffered from these ailments for many years records of which I have described on this and other forums. As far as I am concerned I shall continue to use my own direct approach formula where I treat the disease in the standard allopathic manner and if it does not have the desired response, which I must state here is very rarely, or I am confronted with an ailment which I am not familiar with, I refer the case to my Radar 9.1 software for diagnosis and the prescription for the treatment of the ailment.
I would like to reassure anyone who reads my thoughts on this matter of my treatment of ailments in the non classical manner that I am not alone in using the allopathic manner that the classical school specifies as thousands of homeopaths in this part of the world including India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka who see over 50 patients daily also use this same method with considerable success. It cannot be stated that all these homeopaths are wrong in using this same direct method and there are no records of this direct method leading to the other more serious ailments.
I do hope that other classical homeopaths also consider using this direct method and verify for themselves if they can truly fault this method which usually gives more positive results with the patient being cured in a very short period of time.
Thank you once again for your support.
