Sorry Rebecca I have meant to get back to this. I will have a look at the case again.

Even if vaccinosis is the cause, the specific remedy still needs to be chosen on the basis of symptoms. However, there is a school of thought that says a remedy made from the specific vaccine might also be helpful.

Rebecca what potency of Thuja did you use, and did you only give it in dry doses?

 

*Edit*  I have been thinking about this case a bit this morning – I am thinking that the remedy Psorinum could be useful here. The incessant uncontrollable itching, the eruptions, the falling of the hair, the desire for heat and the bad smell – all of these things would suggest this remedy to me. I believe it is also considered to be a remedy for vaccinosis, especially where eruptions are one of the significant results (as with Sulphur).

Do you have this remedy? If not, I would get hold of 30c and give one test dose first to see how she reacts.

Hello David,

I only did dry doses before you taught me differently. For the Thuja, I had 30C and gave it three times a day until the vial was finished (about a week).  I used it because I had read Dr. Pitcairn’s accounts of helping dogs wiith similar problems.

No, I don’t have remedies on hand. I will have to purchase or order the remedy you mentioned.  I will give it a try as would like to get to the bottom of this if possible.

I do appreciate you taking time to review this and help me.

Couldn’t get psorinum at the local store. Tried to order it online, but my order was rejected, saying it needed a prescription. Is that true?

Rebecca, 

You should be able to get it at Washington or Hahnemann labs. I’ve never been told I need a prescription. Where did you go to order it?

Neither one of those has it. I continued looking for an online source and several which did have it said RX only (see Amazon, for example).  I’ll see what I can do.

Rebecca,

They have it at Helios Labs…. but not sure if you have to have a prescription… and it would be shipped from London, so it may take too long.

 

Hope this helps.

Vicki

Evidently, the USA requires an RX. Or the supplier can order without an RX from Europe, but it will take longer and cost more.  David, would you be able to write an RX for me? Contact me at rebecca.k@hushmail.com if this is a possibility.  Thank you.

David, disregard that last request. Even if you could get me an RX, the supplier would then have to ship to YOU. So I’ll just have them get it from the European supplier so I can get it directly. Thank you anyway.

Rebecca

Did you order already?  If not, my homeopath is a 100% Helios guy.  I don’t know if he has the particular remedy or if he would even do it, but you could e-mail the message from David to him (David willing, of course) and ask him.  He would probably want to make the remedy here and mail it to you.  If he will do it, he charges $40 for a remedy, but it would be made up and ready to go. 

I’m sure he wouldn’t just mail some pellets,  but he may help if you tell him it’s for your dog and I gave you his contact info. Let me know if you want to ask him.

Vicki

That is pretty annoying. I had no idea that remedy would be so difficult to get. I suppose because it is made from disease matter, they must have special restrictions on those medicines. Perhaps there is a homoeopath somewhere within an easy mailing range who might be willing to send it?

Here’s the deal on nosodes on the US.  They are only sold to practitioners.  I have a large stash of nosodes that I order directly from Remedia and Helios.  Helios is cheap.  It’s like $7 for the remedy and $15 to ship it.  It would take about two weeks to arrive.  You might also try Johnson Village Pharmacy in NY.  They hold a large number of nosodes for US purchase.  Unfortunately, they will only sell it in 4 dram vials so you’d have a lot of psorinum!  Let me check my pharmacy stash (yes, I have a LARGE pharmacy for a non-homeopath! LOL!) and see if I have the psorinum 30C.  I’m thinking I do.  If I do, I’ll connect with you offline, Rebecca, and send you a couple of pellets. 

The only nosode I’ve had to have a practitioner order for me was MRSA and then I discovered that Helios would sell it to me, I just had to open order it instead of trying to use their search for it.

https://www.helios.co.uk/cgi-bin/store.cgi?action=link&sku=Psor&uid=2122  (Helios removes VAT so it makes these about 3 something in pounds (7ish USD). 

http://www.remedia-homeopathy……/a728.html (about $7 USD plus shipping). 

I’ll try to get back on here tomorrow and let you know if I have some I could send you. 

 

Patti

My hpath would sell me some hands down for an animal.  I think she charges $18 for a vial but she’ll usually send out just small amounts for much less.  If I don’t have it, I’ll check with her.  This won’t be hard to get for you on the cheap.

Patti and Vicki — thanks for your offers! I did order some from the company which could get it from Europe. It was just 10 extra (total 17), so not that expensive. Now I just have to wait for it to arrive. Then I can try that one test dose and see if I get any good results. I sure hope so!

David, as a note:  Lena wakes up every night about 2 AM and scratches for about 30 minutes, goes back to sleep. Then wakes again 4-5 am and scratches for quite a while.  Her face seems quite itchy now.  She loves to chew on things (and she’s past the teething stage).

Sending good thoughts Rebecca. Please make sure you have new/never used amber bottles for making the remedy.  The preparation and administration of the remedy is important.  

I made a mistake taking my remedy last time… I can tell you now from experience that the remedies are powerful for cure but can cause old symptoms to return if not taken properly.  My homeopaths have always told me to use distilled water too… especially in TX where you have fracking all around you, right?  Patti, is there any difference when preparing a remedy bottle and administering a nosode?  

I’m sending best wishes for the success of the remedy and her complete recovery.  Damn the vaccines!  On Sunday I had to go to the garden shop.  The cashier was telling me she has her dog vaccinated whenever the vet sends the card.  I asked her if that was yearly or every 3 years.  She said annually! I encouraged her to google Dr. Dodds’ info and read it.  There are so many vets that continue to use vaccines as a money making service.  It infuriates me.  Had I not decided to raw feed my dogs I’d be another of the uninformed Americans who are just trying to take care of their dogs, never knowing about the damage done! 

Best to Lena and a woof woof from Katie and Walter!

Vicki

Hi Vicki,

Nosodes in water are done exactly the same way any other remedy is.  I always use 2-4 pellets (depending on pellet size) to 16oz. of water for both nosodes and non-nosodes.  I do not use amber bottles (unless I need an eye dropper for dosing like an LM) and have never had an issue with this.  I like using pint jars because I can put plastic lids on them.  I usually preserve it with a small amount of vegetable glycerin if I’m going to need the remedy long term.  This method has always worked for us but others may do something different.  I hate water dosing and avoid it unless my h-path says she really wants me to.  I have two water dosing right now and I’m glad they’re old enough to succuss and dose it themselves. 😛

Still waiting for the psorinum to arrive, should be today or tomorrow. 

Lena’s itching has improved somewhat. Her itching is not constant and the bouts are shorter, but intense. She seems especially itchy on her face now and also her front legs.  The itching is still worse upon waking.

The fur has continued to grow back although still thin around the eyes.

Her bad odor has improved, hardly noticeable most of the time.

She is past the teething stage, but still loves to chew on things, cloth, plastic or whatever she can grab.

She is very energetic, plays hard, then sleeps.

So at this point, the itching is still the main problem.  Will report back once I have given the 1 dose of psorinum. Thanks.

So she is slowly improving? That is interesting, and that is since the last aggravation on Rhus-tox 30 isn’t it?

Yes, some improvement since the rhus-tox, but still itching.

Do you want to try one more dose of Rhus-t 30 before we move to a new remedy? I am just wondering if it has actually moved her vital force into a position where it is slowly eliminating the symptoms on its own.

How much water were you diluting the remedy in last time?
