Hi there,

I'm thinking that if you MUST use a topical to deal with intense itching or rashes, it is probably fine to use sulfur soap and Epsom salt while on homeopathy. No scent, and it seems to make sense that the odorless powdered sulfur made by Humco (you can buy it on Amazon) would be compatible with the sulfur/arsenicum remedy. Probably also the psorinum. The homeopath I contacted in Santa Monica actually does not recommend that her patients go off their prescription meds, which I thought was interesting. But every homeopath has their own philosophy on that.

As for using the sulfur powder, try using it right after a shower when your skin is still wet, then rub the powder into your skin so that it mixes with the water and makes a paste. When the paste is dry, apply a non-scented cream on your skin and rub it into skin. This will keep the sulfur on your skin much longer. Reapply as often as you need. I did this while on the arsenicum/sulphur and I found it worked well for me.

Itcher read post # 119, 120 and 121. The homeopathic remedies could easily create their own set of symptoms that could be mistaken for symptoms of the disease. These symptoms could last well after stopping taking a remedy so it would be hard to figure where your actually at. I also found it very hard to understand homeopathy but now am getting the hang of it. The new book I'm reading helped a lot, Clinical homeopathy A to Z.

One the the main components of homeopathy is that you are expelling the disease, whatever it may be from your body. This is done through various channels of elimination including your skin.
I've read in several places that during homeopathic treatment you do not want to use anything on your skin . I was recommending moisturizing but at a certain point I stopped even using soap in the shower, just cleaned with water. This has been repeated in many homeopathic writings as using something to cover your skin is suppressive.

Itcher if you have received the staphisagria I would say stay on the psorinum and do take that in the evening but add the staphisagria in the morning. The staphisagria will work much quicker and creates an energy tjhat the mites just don't want to be around. The psorinum works slower and works on the energy state that made you attractive to the mites. You should only have to do the staphisagria 4 or 5 days before you start to feel much less bothered by the mites. Do continue with the psorinum until you've done it for at least 3 weeks. Be careful not to up the frequency of either as you could create an artificial set of symptoms. then you would have to antidote to figure out where you actually are.

"In allopathic medicine, mostly topical creams are used to treat skin problems. Homeopathy considers that treatment with topical cream may resolve the immediate skin problem on the skin, but mostly drives the root problem deeper into the body, by suppressing its expression. This can lead to other systemic problems."

I came across this thread on google and replied to it, but that seems to have vanished.
Psorinum 30 is a wonderful start if you're climbing the walls with scabies and nothing else is working. You can follow it after 2 months with a single dose of Sulphur 30 and if scabies is your only issue, it'll vanish.
If you've read the thread in earthclinic, I've explained how Psorinum 200 is much deeper acting and would be better to use with an experienced homeopath. That potency goes deeper into your body and can reveal a syphilitic tendency with is harder to cure.
Don't worry about mites reproducing madly while you're on this remedy - you can borax the laundry, walls and crevices. Just don't use any pesticide or suppressing ointments when on this treatment because other than the kidneys, the skin is the largest excretory organ and if you prevent it from doing its work, the disease goes deeper.
As long as your scabies is on your skin, deeper organs are protected so you're actually not doing too badly.:)
I pulled this off the psorinum thread.

Oh that's right,
You said you were do this: I am still using the lotion/boric acid but only on few spots, no new break outs or itching, only thing bother me today was my eyelids. that's an improvement.
&, what herbs are you talking about?
------
About your blood pressure meds: As soon as the numbers came down on the mites I have .. my blood pressure lowered too.
As the numbers dropped more, so did my blood pressure.
I always knew there was a reason for it shooting up so high.
but the western Dr's never look for the reaon .. they just give you something to cover it up.
I'm not saying to stop taking your B/Pressure meds .. but if your numbers are down and you are feeling better, you should be taking
your own B/Pressure, especially if you are feeling tired or sleepy,
it has probably dropped.(& all the while that you are doing the homeopathics.)
There is no reason to continue taking the B/Pr. meds when it gets into the right range and stays there.
Just my experience and my thoughts on this.

I have been trying the "herbalist cure" it is posted on the forum, it seems to be killing the mites and such but am not 100% sure it is working I have to wonder if I am not killing them in my environment? I only get small red patches here an there on my body, an they seem to die off with a bit of neem lotion?, so who knows? Maybe I am just chasing them around my body?
I too take blood pressure meds n would not feel comfy stopping them while I treat this, I suppose it would be ok to take them every other day?
All i know is I have issues in my life right now an do not have time to deal with scabies BS an am so fed-up with treating them...grrrr
So I guess I will read up on this post and see about trying this regimen now?

I know what you mean FTB,
I think we are all having problems with the anger this disease brings on. How could we not be.
Life will always have it's problems.
However, we know we have to give that up and relax somehow,
if we are going to have a successful treatment.
(As one program repeats over and over:(because we forget soon)
"acceptance, acceptance, acceptance".
Yes, you must be taking your blood pressure yourself, if you are going to cut back on it.
I'm really glad that you are considering the homeopathic treatment.
Be sure to get a good handle on how to proceed, first.
Take care and stay in touch.

Ok Here I go, So I have only taken the herb regimen an obviously it isnt working 100% so I believe i need to try one of these regimens here on this post, now the question is, if you dont mind me asking? do i start with "staphisagria"? I was thinking? i think i have most of the scabies under control due to not too bothered by them, so am wondering if this might eradicate them then?
Sorry for the question I am sure everyone is sick of hearing questions on this, I just want them gone I have been fighting this since Oct/11 an spent sooo much money trying to rid them, like I said before I am sick of this BS!!!
Thanks for your help!.:)
Oh n this should be a miracle trying to rid these an get my energy in balance, its been so off since I contracted the scabies :(

I know FTB,
We all just wanted to cry, and I'm sure we all have at times.
But we knew that wouldn't get us well, so we got busy reading and following all of the links .. deciding what we would use based on our symptoms.
I know that Fred said that he wished he had started with the Psorinum 30C to begin with.
I hope you have read and taken note that you can not just take these indescriminately .. you can only take Psorinum ONCE A DAY.
And you should start very low and move up very little, if at all.
If I were you, since you say your #s are down .. I would get that and also get the Staphysagria.
These are totally different .. they work on different energies.
You could take the Staphysagria a couple of times a day >
2-pellets. Maybe even start with one, and check your reaction.
Leave space/hours between each dose and also between the Psorinum.
Go slow .. and keep notes.
Pay attention to what is happening.
I wish Fred would come in and talk to you .. I am not explaining this very well.
But READ all the links for each remedy and get it into your head ..
While you are getting the products and getting ready.
Don't forget about the antidotes .. if not careful your medicines will become ineffective.(READ the fist few pages on this thread.)
The main thing is to KNOW & then GO.
I wish the very best for you.
You will feel better when you get started.

Ftb; Read posst 119, 120 and 121. AS i've read more and more about Staphysagria I see it is a good Idea to take it only once a day. Staphysagria is powerful and ranks along side Psorinum in power.

Staphisagria is a polychrest meaning it is whole body , it effects all the disease miasms. Staphisagria is also constitutional meaning it addresses the set of symptoms that is scabies. Both Psorinum and Staphisagria are constitutional polychrests making them a good choice for the people here.

Take the Staphysagria30c at 6a.m., the Boiron brand is the BB sized pellet so two pellets under the tongue. Then take the Psorinum 30c at 6p.m., The micro-nutr. brand from elixirs is the poppy seed sized pellet so 3 pellets under the tongue.

Take the remedies once a day each, spaced 12 hours. You don't want to take too much or it is possible to create an artificial symptom picture where the remedies are creating scabies symptoms on their own. Imagine how confusing that could be. Cont. next post.

Keep some daily notes on what you're experiencing. Remember it is the trend that is important and not what happens over one day and if you try to take the remedies like your taking an aspirin for a headache it could yield some unwanted results. These remedies keep working well after you take them , if you take too much it is possible to have symptoms that are artificial and then you would have to antidote them just to figure out where you are.

You don't want to use any cremes lotions or pesticides at all on your skin during the treatment because that just suppresses the disease and you want your skin to expel it. You don't want to drive it deeper which is what treating from the outside in does. Homeopathy cures from the inside out.here are a few links about dosing and how to interpret your symptoms.

There's the second link again.

Here are some guidelines for taking the remedies.

http://www.drpradhan.com/home/content/view/19...

http://www.livestrong.com/article/147193-rule...

Also many practitioners use the water dose but putting the pellets under the tongue is more consistent and lends itself to less chance of contamination and less anxiety over that. Using tweezers for the small psorinum pellets works well for removing them from the bottle, you don't want to touch them.

There is a lot of information on this thread and some of it may seem conflicting since there is a lot of information in homeopathy itself and very many different interpretations. I'm trying to put all this information in context and come up with a good working plan. It is worth reading the whole thread however.

Your should see some relief in a few days from the Staohysagria as it will make its action known quicker than the psorinum . The Psorinum will be more of a permanent cure though.

You will definitely feel the remedies working and sometimes that will feel strong especially as your body adjusts to taking them. If that strong feeling goes away it doesn't mean they are not working. take the Staphysagria 30c at 6a.m. and the psorinum 30c at 6p.m. for at least 3 weeks daily preferably 5 weeks with no breaks . Take them once a day each only. Read the links on aggravations too. Welcome aboard.

During the dog days of summer the mites will die off in your environment pretty fast. Unless you live in Alaska or in the U.K. The mites will die quickly from hot temps and the eggs will dehydrate too and become ineffective . Any eggs that survive long enough to hatch will die quickly if the temp inside is kept at 80deg f+. Pretty easy to do in the summer months in a lot of places.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6434601

This is probably the most effective way in dealing with the environment. Also as your homeopathic treatment progresses you will become more and more immune to them.

The people who don't agree with homeopathy are the ones who don't know much about it and haven't felt its effects. Somehow they feel threatened by it as if posting this information is going to somehow threaten the posts about permethrin and ivermectin. I tried perm and iver in every way possible and it didn't work for me, maybe it would work for some but the fact is it doesn't work for everyone so when there are no options left and you're running out of hope there is homeopathy and it works and the mites don't build up resistance to it . You just have to be a little patient , the cure with homeopathy takes a little time but you'll be making consistent progress if you do it right.Here are the source links.
