Sir,i m suffering from gout pain and high uric acid(13).taking colchicum30 and urtica urens .will it help to cure things forever.suffered attack twice
31 Mar 2017
Sunil. Please stop taking Colchicum and Urtica Urens. The danger in taking these remedies regularly is that you might be grafted by a new disease. Thus, we do not recommend repetition of homeopathic remedies. One dose is okay, but you have been taking too much of it. You need to do the following--
-- Stop taking these medicines for 3 weeks. Do not take any of these remedies again, unless advised.
-- Start taking half teaspoon of Baking Soda with Lemon water , 4 times a day.
Take this mixture for 21days.
-- Once you are done with Baking Soda, take One dose of Colchicum 1m. Only take one dose. DO not repeat at all. Wait for 15 days and observe the symptoms. You can then write to us again.
This advice is for educational purpose only. It is not intended to replace a doctor. Please consult your doctor before taking any herb.

Kapil. Only take one dose of Colchicum Autumnale 30. Only and only one dose.
Please, do not repeat the dosage at all. After that, start taking Stinging Nettle Tea, one cup every day for 20 days. This herb is very beneficial in curing High Uric Acid.

Hello. My dog had kidney failure nine months ago. I strengthen it with acupuncture. I once talked to a veterinarian and she told me there was a colchicine drug that helps to keep the attacks away from the kidneys. Doctors compare the known disease of other Faemias to the disease of people suffering from Mediterranean fever. The question is whether the drops of the universe can work in a drug place. For example I can add drops to water that a dog drinks ???

Take this remedy in Lm potency form. Buy 0/3 from a homeopathic store and take one tablespoon. Method : Add only 2 pellets to a small bottle. Drink one tablespoon daily. Do not forget to shake the bottle really well before taking the medicine. Please note, it is very important to shake the bottle so as to change the potency of the remedy.

Third attack of gout this summer, can barely walk, but has been worse - just started Colchicum Autumnnale 30c tablets. Taking 5 under tongue every hour
What can I do to avoid this in the future - otherwise I am very healthy 61 year old male.

When did you take Colchicum ?
I would suggest that you take the same remedy ( Colchicum Autumnale ) in Lm potency. Buy 0/3 in Lm potency or 0/6. Take 2 globules, add in a glass of water, drink one sip from this everyday till the glass of water lasts. Do not drink Coffee or Alcohol at all.

Colchicum Autumnale is of the best remedies for curing Gout. Just take the medicine in the LM potency, talk to your homeopath and start taking the medicine. This will prevent the future Gout attacks too. Also, Share other symptoms that you might have noticed.

I was diagnosed with pericarditis and went into afib last month that lasted 4 days before my heart rate finally slowed down. My last MRI showed that I have 4cm of fluid around my heart and constrictive heart function. I was told to take .6mg of Colchicine once a day for 3 months for the pericarditis to go away but this medication causes my hands and feet to tingle and go numb. It also causes my left arm to hurt really bad. I did some research and ordered Colchicum autumnale 30c but I'm not sure if this will work and be a good replacement. Can you advise if this will work and if so how much should I take? Thank you for your time in advance.

I have been suffering from Gout and Arthritis in my fingers toes. It started with red, painful inflammation on toes and then rose up to my fingers. My middle fingers are bent toward left. I restricted eating chicken, lintel and other vegetable that affects Gout, completely eliminated goat meat, and any kind of alcohol but still I have it. Does your recommendation of baking soda,. lemon water and Colchicum will get rid of this pain for good for me? I am a senior citizen and want to be free of pain for the rest of my life. I shall appreciate your help very much. Thank you.

My husband suffers chronic Lower Back Pain, has done for years. I am looking for something that will help him.

He is very allergic to any "anti-inflamatory" including tumeric, green lip muscle & over the counter ibuprofen tablets.

I am trying to find out if "Colchicum Autumnalis (Rahzes) tablets" have any anti-inflamatories in them that would affect my husband.

If they dont have anti-inflamatories in them can you tell me where I can purchase some to try.
