How I treat my eczema patients.

I have treated several cases of die hard eczema systematically with following method:

If patient lives in temperate and humid place Arnica-30 should be tried and if Arnica-30 fails or patient does not live in temperate and humid place:

Start with:

Petroleum 30
One weekly dose.

If it does not work
Next week one weekly dose of
1. Graphites 30
2. Petroleum 30
Each medicine on separate day.

If still it does not work satisfactory
Next week one weekly dose of
1. Graphites 30
2. Petroleum 30
3. Sulphur 30
Each medicine on separate day.

If still it does not work satisfactory
Next week one weekly dose of
1. Graphites 30
2. Petroleum 30
3. Sulphur 30
4. Alumina 30
Each medicine on separate day.

If still it does not work satisfactory
Next week one weekly dose of
1. Graphites 30
2. Petroleum 30
3. Sulphur 30
4. Alumina 30
5. Sepia 30
Each medicine on separate day.



If still it does not work satisfactory
Next week one weekly dose of
1. Graphites 30
2. Petroleum 30
3. Sulphur 30
4. Alumina 30
5. Sepia 30
6. Psorinum-30
Each medicine on separate day.




The reason for multiple medicines is that a medicine taken may work very slowly and results might be apparent after few weeks time but patient gives up on the medicine and moves along to next line of treatment.
Indeed this happens almost always.

I bet my life that after six weeks, either eczema would be gone or a significant visible permanent improvement would happen. This is the way I am treating my eczema patients these days. (Of course with great success)

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
kuldeep, thanks for this post. I believe Petroleum is your first choice to treat eczema.

Hoolio Tamiano you are welcome. Ofcourse Petroleum is my first choice to treat eczema it works late and slow that's why patients give up on it and move on. That's why I made a practice to try on a patient for several weeks.

Thank you Kuldeep for the information.

This is the spirit of sharing that I strive to spread on this and other forums but unfortunately I have, as you know, encountered much criticism when I prescribe a remedy for an ailment by the classical school for not following the standard case taking method of diagnosis, which in many cases fails, as unless this case taking is done on Homeopathic software like Radar, there is no precision attatched to doing so and results in the wrong remedy being prescribed for the ailment.

The method that I use is direct where the remedy is given for the ailment which is usually one that I have had prior experience in using in other cases. It usually works much more satisfactorily that the remedies that are prescribed by the classical homeopaths after their case taking protocol is observed.

I'm so glad my homeopath took the classical approach to my eczema. It is a very unusual one and took her a while to find it, but it has resolved so many other issues as well because it is my constitutional remedy as well. Before that, everything just suppressed or aggravated it.

How about trying Robin Logan's book, The Homeopathic Treatment of Eczema. It has excellent descriptions specific to eczema of the various remedies and will help you avoid a shotgun approach.

We need a variety of ways to improve our health. If one method doesn't work try another. I personally have not been completely helped by classical homeopathy so now I'm trying the shotgun approach.

I'm sure I'm not the only person who hasn't been helped totally by a consitutional remedy.

Why not try both methods? It can only serve to improve our quality of life.

I'm also not convinced that classical homeopaths aren't doing the shotgun approach themselves. In my experience, it sounds very fishy. I think they are even coming to this website and following in the foot steps of those giving advice here.

Why not give it a try before you nock it.

I'm sure you will like it.

Pat, they aren't "classical" homeopaths if, for a chronic condition like eczema, they are using that approach. It is one thing to first consider amongst those remedies which, statistically, have tended to cover the vast majority of situation to find one that appears to match the patient and the patient's symptoms.

As a former eczema sufferer, I do understand the desire to suppress, especially when nothing else appears to work. If that is the only way you measure quality of life (in other words, if you don't take into account the potential impacts of suppression), then you're right.

I also recognize the extreme shortage in many parts of the world of homeopaths qualified to treat a chronic condition like eczema. Assuming the described cocktail of remedies can work together and do not confuse the vital force, then perhaps it is worth it to those people who have found no relief from their condition. But I don't understand the difficulty of looking at the individual appropriateness of such a short list of remedies.

They are "classical" homeopaths if they got their degree/education in a classical school. And they are classical if they take hours and hours of case, history taking that in my experience can be just a hoax.

I'm not the only one who has had this experience with classical homeopathy.

There are others here who became disillusion with either classical homeopathy or with our classical homeopaths and that is why they came here. Just ask people here.
 
Pat2006 last decade
I'm not discouraging people from using "classical" homeopathy. I just think people should be aware of other options and let each person have the freedom to decide for himself/herself.

In particular, in the case of much older people, I see no reason to use the shotgun technique as the theory of suppressing is not going to apply to them when they won't be alive much longer. And they don't have the time to experiement and maybe not even the money to work with clasical homeopathy to find the correct remedy.

.

Your post is letting people know of the belief of suppression and then people can decide if they want to continue with the straight shot technique any way.


I appreciate your post. I'm always open to being educated and I'm sure others are too.

Thank you.

It is very difficult to cure eczema with classical approach because even if one medicine works totally but late and slowly so patient gives up upon it.

If one medicine works on a person in a certain environment and the person moves in another environment, same medicine fails. Same medicine may not work on different person in same environment and so on.

Even one can’t explain about his/her eczema ex. dry/wet/weeping/oozing/angry/itchy/color or whatever because it changes with time, season and any medicine taken and then it changes its character and even area of affection.

That’s why I have devised this multi-medicine approach especially for remote patients. It is working. It has taken away misery of many children’s and adults alike. I have treated people who lost their faith in homeopathy after paying hefty amount of money to classical homeopaths.

Pat, I appreciate these posts as well. In particular, because some of the testimonials lead me to believe that some homeopathic remedies can perhaps be effectively used nonhomeopathically (for instance, sidestepping the "like cures like" analysis and turning instead to formulaic approaches). Much more easily pursued successfully, however, for acute conditions than chronic.

I disagree strongly that someone who is not practicing according to classical theory can be considered a classical homeopath, regardless of their training or diploma.

I agree strongly that we should have the freedom to choose. That includes direct access to all remedies and potencies and making our own decisions.

One thing I would like to know more about is the use of Sulphur. My homeopath warned me against it, said I wasn't the Sulphur type and it would surely aggravate me. However, I understand Hahnneman often used it to start off a case, almost regardless of the condition. That would have led me to believe that Sulphur would have been higher up on kuldeep's list of eczema remedies.
 
Daisy43 last decade
kuldeep, given what my homeopath went through to find my remedy, in person, I can appreciate your trying to devise an alternate approach. Are all of those remedies compatible? Are there some that you skip because of the patient's individuality?
