Herpes Zoster By: Sunny
  
March 18 2017
Dear Udaya sir, my mother has developed herpes zoster. She is having excruciating pain at the age of 75. We are showing it to a homeopath as she cannot tolerate allopathy. This doctor has not been able to give relief for pain which is nerve related. My mother says it is pricking like needle now there is pain like t shape below the ribs. It's been 6 days . The pain is excruciating in the night and she cannot take allopathic painkillers which have side effects
Pleas suggest.

Also the pain feeling is as if when a woman unable to feed gets stuck with milk in the breast plus the l shaped pain from the ribs.

Plesse help. Should I increase the potency?

The pain continues unabated. We also tried R69 ( Reckewig)

Please suggest.

Sir,
Some improvement started after I repeated for 1 more day the 3 medicines.
Yesterday whole day she was looking positive. After 18 days for the first time I saw she spoke positive. From night 130 again the pain started which contiuned till morning now.

Should we repeat ? Also hypericum 200 should we give daily 1 dose.

Please also suggest something for her constipation which is like she is passing stools like infant quantity (very small).

Thanks

you can give daily dose of hypericum 200C as it is a very acute condition..... you can also use it in split doses i.e. put ten drops of hypericum 200C in half a glass of water and give one spoon every 10 to 15 minutes.....Arsenic Album should remove constipation , if not use single doses of Sulphur 200C and Graphites 200C once only. Use Sulphur wait for a day and if no improvements are noticed which is unlikely, use Graphites, you can repeat it if necessary after a week......

Sir,

The update is that there is 40 to 45% improvement based on the trio - ars alb, nat mur and sep.

Alongside some doses of Hypericum 200.

Should we continue for some more time till the problem reduces? She has taken for a week's time now.

The constipation problem is slightly better without the Graphites.

My mother's another problem is related to eye. She had a cataract in right eye 3 years back as her pressure was high. She was a glucoma suspect. After the operation at Vasan the problem increased due to the side effects of the drops. It's been 3 years the allpaths have been changing one eye drop or the other. Right now she is timolol maleate. Earlier on 9 PM after that on some other. She is having burning, irritation itching et al..Doctor says it has nothing to do with the medicines. Is there any homeopathic medicine for glucoma? Can we stop the allopathic as the doctor feels that the pressure may increase and can damage the nerves. Right now she is being treated at AIIMS. The doctor say that Vasan folks need not have done cataract as it could have been avoided. But having done now there is no choice.

Kindly suggest

Aditya

Why suspect....? Are they not conclusive about Glycoma.....? Did you check whether herpes has any impact on the nerves related to the eye....? i.e vesicular eruptions occuring along the course of spinal nerves effecting nose face and eyes....? you should use Ranunculous Bulb.... because it is specific for herpes zoster,/ shingles with burning, burning pain and intense itching and pressure and smarting in eye......use it in lower potency or 30C three times a day without fail.

Use Gelsemium 3X three times a day for Glaucoma three drops in one ounce water alongwith phosphorus 30C.....and use Ceneraria Mar 3X two drops in each eye two times for three days ....stop the other eye drops for three days. Phosphorus works for both cataract and glaucoma...there are also plenty of other medicines in homeopathy for these conditions. I think it may not be a case of glaucoma but the herpes effecting the cranial nerves.

Sir:
Even before the herpes came, she had itching, burning et al. When the Vasan people did the investigation, they said 13% loss which was counterted by another doctor at vasan which made us conclude that there was some thing wrong with the Doctors 2 years back. From then on we approached AIIMS and she is being treated there.

At AIIMS she is getting all her field tests, pressure tests done every six months. Fortunately they said there is no vision loss but considering her age, and fluctuation in pressure she was put on glucoma 9 pm drops and after that they changed it due to the side effects and in the last 2 years 4 drops under different brands have been changed.

I shall give Ranunculous 30 as well as gel 3x+phos 30 alongside cinerarra drops. Will stop the other medicines.

On the herpes should we continue the trio. She still holds her chest while moving or shifting. At rest in some position there is no pain.heavyness lke stone is hanging on the right side of chest.

Heaviness like stone ...holds chest while moving or shifting.......heavyness lke stone is hanging on the right side of chest.......conium and bryonia single doses.each once only and report ...conium 200C and bryonia 30C, The trio has to be continued....

What is Herpes Zoster.......Did she suffer from chicken pox in the younger ages...or childhood.....If so suppressed chicken pox is cause to dorment varicella virus to turn varicella zoster virus on reactivation....these varicella virus takes refuge in the nerve ganglions and stay dormant for decades....when reactivated under agreeable environments surface as herpes zoster....Herpes zoster therefore are mostly unilateral on the nerve lines. and when these reactivation of dormant varicella zoster virus takes place residing within the ophthalmic nerve (the first division of the trigeminal nerve) then it is called Herpes zoster ophthalmicus... Herpes are not usually diagnosed until and unless the vesicle eruptions are seen...therefore the presence and mild activation of the zoster virus could bring in symptoms of pressure and smarting under the eyes and misdiagnosed as glaucoma much earlier not relating it with Herpes.....I am talking only of possibility.....Timolol maleate is a beta adrenergic blocker to reduce intraoccular pressure or hypertension probably reducing the production of aqueous humor.....what we need to do is to balance the production and drainage of the aqueous humor and not control the production to feign a balancing act......!!!! .And if these drops are not reducing the pressure it would mean the cause lies somewhere else and is not addressed and in this case a possible zoster ophthalmicus.....! If they confirm glaucoma, which I doubt, use also Osmium 6C and physostigma 6C....incase of damage to optic or or other nerves there are other medicines...best wishes.

Sir,

Thanks for the detailed explanation. Couple of updates.She did suffer from mild chicken pox way back in her childhood. you are right. She also had lymph node TB during 1999 for which she took 9 months allopathy treatment.

She is chronic constipation patient for years and takes only homeopathy for several years. She takes isagol or Harad.

Have given Bryonia 30 and shall be giving conium 200 one dose today.

Even before the cataract operation of her eyes she was finding irritation, itching and burning sensation and hazy. After the left eye operation the expectation was that her pressure will reduce and not lead to glucoma.

To that extent the drops have maintained the pressure below or equal to 18. However, she keeps saying all the symptoms and says that both the operated one (left) and non-operated one (right) there is no difference. But the AIIMS doctor is giving her timolol maleate to keep the pressure under check as the doctor says that without the drops her pressure would fluctuate and damage the nerve.

So if we are switching to homeopathic drops and medicine we will have to stop the allopathic drops right for only 3 days and again switch back to allopathy?

Second question : in the market there are 4 variants of cineraraia and no where 3x is mentioned. Reckewig cineraria is d2. In schwabe or SBL it is cineraria is 0 and euhprasia is also mixed and glycerine.

I am arranging for 3x gelsemium which I could not get. The shop had 3c I think.
Is 3x and 3c same?

Thanks for patiently replying sir.

Aditya

Chicken pox is a detoxing ailment meaning the body throws out all toxins from the body in one go and achieves homeostasis for a period of time thereafter denying the susceptibility to any ailments on that body and therefore a virulent attack is a welcome attack and a mild attack is a dangerous attack as suppression has taken place in mild attacks due to suppressive medicines used or heavy and healthy foods taken.. For a chicken pox patient therefore a period of upavasa is the best medicine alongwith nutritious drinks like coconut water where plenty of phosphorus is included. as well as minerals like iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium and vitamins like B6 , C, E, K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, and folate acting as electrolytes......Therefore the terminology called mild attack is soothing to hear but not helpful to the body in any ailment where eruptions on skin are involved....where the FIRE in the body is activated towards cure.....this is where Sulphur, Psorinum, Phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, potassium are important in homeopathy and the very reason why some adepts in homeo wrote in the past within their books that Kali or Potassium medicines should not be used in ailments where there is fever....meaning those people might have had serious aggravations with potassium while in eruptive ailments where activation is centrifugal because of the fact that they promote complete cure and therefore a curing or healing crisis which the physicians and the patient may not be in a position to endure.......!!!

Later she may be given a dose or two of Tuberculinum 1M or 10M which will cutshort the length of any treatment she is receiving in due course. Because the tuberculous miasm should be block to complete recovery......

In Ayurveda there is a Kalkam or a neutralising agent in all preparations.....Most of the medicines used by human beings have a toxic part which manifests as side effects in allopathic pharmachopoea and is completely eliminated in homeopathy due to dilution method or ionisation method, where as it is neutralised in Ayurveda by the use of specific antidote which could be a grain or two of mustard or a grain or two of black pepper or whatever as secretly told to the Vaidya (Ayurvedic physician) by their ancestory........If any medicine like Isagol, Harad etc. are used randomly chosen from the benefits narrated in materialistic writers of shallow knowledge, and easily picked up from the social and other media, would not be having the spiritual insights as to how to remove its toxic effects and used in material doses is bound to produce side effects as detailed by you as chronic constipation etc.....as secondary reaction which is opposite to the primary action of controlling diarrhea or the intention of good bowel motion for which it was primarily used.......

To your query: Stop allopathic medicines for three days only use the other medicines monitor the benefits, report and restart the allopathic medicines if need be....meaning if the pressure is completely gone, you need not restart allopathic medicine.....and also since you have confirmed the glaucoma aspect, you may use osmium 6C and physostigma 6C three times a day alongwith alopathic medicines.

Use Cineraria Q ...Euphrasia with it is ok.....but the medicine should have been made by using water and not alcohol as alcohol gives more irritation to the eye and benefits will be lost in that aggravation.....you can ask the dispenser to give you Ceneraria Mar Q dilution in water.
