Homeopathic Medication for Immune system (antibodies)
« on: October 04, 2009, 05:50:53 PM »
In late August my dad introduced lil A to an naturopathic doctor - the doctor's father is a very well known doctor in India.  After assessing lil A, he and his dad did some research for a few weeks.  Lil A is now taking homeopathic medication to regulate his immune system so that his immune system is neither under or over active. 

He takes a single dose of Psorinum before starting his meds.  He takes Placebs 35 in the morning and 30 at night.  (I may have the spelling of the second med wrong). 

Does anyone know anything else about these meds?

Sharmin,

of course I do not know anything about these drugs, but I would be very reluctant to try homeopathic medication in general, since we consume so many other supplements and vitamins and medication. But that is only my opinion. If you believe that these drugs do any good, at least contact your physician first, in case there are any contradictions with the rest of the medication.

Lena,

Thank you kindly for your response  :hugfriend  I agree, as it is lil A is on exjade and many supplements - I don't want him to have contraindications.  I have apprehensions as well about these homeopathic meds, that's why I was hoping maybe somebody may know more about them.  Little A has been doing quite well with the antibody issue for a while now, the antibody screen has been showing up negative, however on September 24th it was detected again - I hope that it was just the once - but I panicked a little because I don't know what we would have to do if the antibody appeared again.  Oakland strongly advised against using ritux again.  That is why we turned to homeopathic in hopes that something would prevent the antibody from rising again. 

Hopefully we will get some answers in New York later this month.

 I fully understand you, Sharmin. I may have done the same trying to control this antibody issue.
I was just wondering: do thal experts support homeopathic medication for us? that would be interesting to know. Let's wait for New York.

Hi Tedi
I hope you have stopped taking ferrum metallicum as it is a most widely used iron supplement in homeopathy usually administered when there is iron deficiency anemia.

take care

Totally agree,anything containing the formula "ferrum or ferrous" will contain iron.
