Does Arborvitae and Xarelto have any side if used together
Herbpathy ( India )

Willaim O' Brien

Both the drugs will antagonize the action of each other. As Xarelto is a blood thinner and Arborvitae is used to cure excessive bleeding. However, if you can tell us, for what purpose do you want to take "Arborvitae" then we will be able to guide you properly and prescribe you the super effective herb for your problem.

How do you work out what the dosage would be to aid arthritic pain?
10 Nov 2016
The dosage depends on the symptoms and the degree of illness. How severe it is, is it acute or is it chronic.
The dosage also depends on other additional remedies that the patient is already taking ( if he is ). The dosage depends on the age, gender and body type.

How Many Drops Of Thuja Occidentalis 1m(90% alcohal) should dissolve in Water To Take Its One Dose?
Gargi Himani.
26 Sep 2017
Farhan Ali, the dosage and the potency of the homeopathic remedy depends on your condition or the problems or I can say the symptoms. Please write the symptoms and send. Then only dosage can be suggested. However, from my personal experience, I would suggest that you take Thuja Occidentals in the form of " Lm potency ". Ask your homeopath about lm potency of homeopathy.

Why have you been taking this herb ? If you feel, all these symptoms are due to Abrovitae, then you may stop taking this herb. Stop the intake and then observe the symptoms.
You already have taken it for 3 months, which is long enough. DO not take it anymore.

It is stated above that Thuja tincture is effective against steroid disease and vaccinosis. However, these two ailments are not listed in Thuja essential oil. Does it mean that the essential oil is not effective against these ailments?
