Alternative Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

Progressive Multiple Sclerosis Cured with Homeopathy

Homeopathy: a “new” treatment for Multiple Sclerosis?

 

Jerry was a tall man, age 46, intelligent, polite, trim, but barely able to walk, and looking visibly discouraged.

 

Jerry’s chief complaints were progressive weakness in his left leg, numbness in his left hand, and fatigue. His complaints began in 1993 while he worked as a scientist for a major pharmaceutical company. Extensive medical evaluations were done. The initial finding was “possible demyelinating disease.” As Jerry’s symptoms progressed, he noted marked difficulty with leg coordination and with balance while walking. In 1995, he was laid off due to “downsizing” when the company was taken over by another pharmaceutical drug giant. The layoff was very traumatic for him. A year later, he was diagnosed with Progressive-Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis (PRMS), more commonly called Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS). The diagnosis was made through brain MRI and enhanced spinal MRI.

 

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system – the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve. MS causes destruction of the coating or myelin sheath that surrounds and protects nerve fibers (axons). This damage can disrupt the normal flow of messages or nerve impulses from the central nervous system, causing a reduction or loss of body function. Often, the nerve fibers are also destroyed. Here are some interesting facts about MS:

  • It is diagnosed more than twice as often in women as in men
  • MS seems to be concentrated in certain areas of the world. For example, higher rates of MS are found in those living farther from the equator.
  • MS has been associated with certain viruses like mononucleosis (Epstein Barr), varicella zoster (herpes simplex virus 3) and Hepatitis A & B vaccines, although some claim research is lacking to prove this.

Homeopathic treatment of Macular Degeneration (wet)

(transcribed from a testimonial given over the phone)

I’m just an old sailor, live alone in the Florida keys and want nothing to do with doctors. But I thought I had been

sailboat1

marooned. It began with distortions in my vision, the horizon was tilting, the oars and mast looked bent, the sails waved eerily in the wind…it was all worse with low lighting. Then I began bleeding from my eyes! I conceded with a trip to the ophthalmologist and was diagnosed with bilateral hemorrhagic macular degeneration. As soon as the doc got the part about “no cure” and “will end up blind” I got up and left! I did! I walked right out of there! That was definitely not “above board”. My friend who drove me took me straight to the local health food store where the pretty lass behind the counter told me about this stuff called Pycnogenol.

I took very high doses of Pycnogenol and held off the symptoms for months. But one day it didn’t work anymore. The bloody tears returned. Marooned again! That’s when I remembered my ol’ sailing buddy and homeopath – Manfred Mueller. I told him I needed to be baled out. I couldn’t loose my vision. A sailor’s vision is his life!

I’m happy to report that after only a few weeks of treatment (Crotalus horridus in daily doses of ascending Q/LM potencies), the symptoms were markedly better. He also treated me for my diabetes and we did this a few more years. It’s been 7 years now and I am no longer bleeding from the eyes, or having visual problems. I can still see just as sharp as when I was in my twenties. Thanks Manfred for my clean bill of health!

Homeopathic Treatment of Anaphylactic Reactions

by Manfred Mueller, MA, DHM, RSHom(NA), CCH

Most commonly caused by a substance to which the patient has become sensitized, anaphylactic reactions are systemic allergic reactions. If shock develops, the patient turns pale, faints and quickly becomes unresponsive. If no help is available, it can be fatal. A serious outcome of anaphylactic reactions can often be prevented with Apis mellifica made from the honey bee.

I attended a wedding that was held outdoors, when a little girl suddenly screamed, and her mother yelled “oh my god she got stung by a yellow jacket, and we forgot the epinephrine kit!” The wedding was held in the woods several miles from town and the mother was beside herself. I reassured her and walked calmly to my car to get my remedy kit. I gave the girl a pellet of Apis 30 C under her tongue and she stopped screaming instantly. Fifteen minutes later the incredulous mother pointed out that the girl was completely fine, and didn’t even have any localized swelling. Read more

Homeopathic Treatment of Brain Hemorrhage: Several Cases

By Manfred Mueller, RSHom (NA), CCH

first appeared in The American Homeopath, vol 19

Cerebrovascular injuries, whether from trauma, surgery or internal chronic conditions, are all too often the cause of permanent disability, if not fatal outcomes. It is perhaps because of the very severity and hopelessness of these cases that they constitute some of the most frustrating and at the same time most rewarding work a homeopath can engage in. In this article I hope to convey some of the triumphs, as well as difficulties, we homeopaths may encounter while working with the victims of brain injury and their families.

Case # 1: Hemiplegia after Hemorrhagic Stroke with Hematoma

Harriet called from Roanoke, VA, about six hours from Durham, NC, where I then practiced. Her older sister Eleanor, aged 70, had collapsed after she suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and, “was now in a bad way.” She was lying in the hospital bed, nearly unconscious, and tests showed she was completely paralyzed on the left side. Her breathing was noisy, with a snoring sound. Eleanor was currently on a ventilator and taking several medications. Harriet, aged 62, was a retired hospital administrator and did not trust that conventional treatment was going to do her sister much good. She reasoned, “At the very least she can use all the help she can get!” Read more

Nephrotic Syndrome Cured with Homeopathy!

In May, 2012, my 21 year old daughter had very swollen legs and ankles and was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. We went the usual route that lead to an appointment with a kidney specialist.  The specialist wanted to put my daughter on 5 different drugs, the main one being a steroid, and also wanted to do a kidney biopsy (a painful and risky procedure).  The biopsy was to determine what the type of disease was causing the nephrotic syndrome.  The result would have been the same treatment no matter what they found, so I said wait on the biopsy and let’s try the drugs first.

I left the specialist office that day with the prescriptions for the drugs and got them filled.  But, I couldn’t bring myself to give them to her.  I knew how the steroids could affect her body and with all the other drugs combined, it was just too much.

I looked into alternative treatment, being a firm believer in natural cures and treatments.  I found a video online about a woman whose daughter was cured of nephrotic syndrome using the homeopathic remedies provided by Mr. Manfred Mueller.

I contacted Mr. Mueller in June, and found him to be a caring, knowledgeable, patient and thorough homeopathic practitioner.  He put my daughter on the remedies and with 4 weeks she had absolutely no swelling.  A year later in June of 2013, she was finished with the remedies.  It’s 6 months later and she has not had a relapse or any problems and I consider her cured of the nephrotic syndrome.

I can’t tell you how pleased I am that I went this route for my daughter, instead of the toxic pharmaceutical drugs that only cause more problems.

What I would say to anyone reading this is please, don’t buy into the negative things people are saying about homeopathy.  I feel they are simply misinformed and believe that the only option is to use pharmaceuticals.  But, drugs don’t cure anything, they treat symptoms, but they don’t cure.  Give homeopathy a chance!

Code Red

emergency2

After her surgery for a tumor which was wrapped around the neck of the bladder, Ingrid was lying in the hospital bed, still groggy from the general anesthesia, and feeling as if in a fog. She suddenly became restless and panicky and, exerting all her will power, she forced herself out of the stupor.

 She now noticed that something was trickling down her leg, and, when she investigated, she saw there was a considerable amount of blood. She called for the nurse. The nurse saw the blood, panicked, and called for the head nurse who declared a “Code Red.”

Her sister Linda, who had seen the commotion from down the hall and had rushed to her room, got there before the staff. Linda gave her a bottle of Ipecacuanha 30C from the small homeopathic remedy kit she carried in her purse. Soon, seven staff personnel and four doctors were crowding into her room and were in quite a disarray about the hemorrhage, which, they said, was dangerous, and they apparently did not know how to stop it.

Serious Conditions Resolved: Gallstone Colic

Homeopathy is a wonderfully powerful system of medicine. It’s successes never fail to amaze and challenge me. And this case was a bit of challenge. It is one of those cases that shows you just how important those little symptoms and clues are for the observer to be able to report to the homeopath. In fact, it wasn’t until I was presented with just such a symptom that I was able to find the remedy to cure this man’s gallstone colics. Please read on…

Chuck, 48, a busy psychotherapist, had sudden excruciating pain in his right upper abdomen. There had been a family history of gallbladder disease. Three or four homeopathic remedies were tried with no effect. One of them even aggravated the pain every time he took it during the attack. He had appalling pain, causing him to writhe on the floor and lasting four hours. He lost eighteen pounds in two months.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

When I was very young, about age 13, I became very overly concerned about order and cleanliness. I spent a lot of time organizing. Over the next 3 years, this developed into an obsession. I became especially preoccupied with germs and contamination. Eventually my mom took me to a physician who diagnosed me with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). By that time, my OCD was so bad that I spent all day cleaning and washing my clothes multiple times a day. When it got really bad, I was running the washing machine all day long! The problem got so severe that I stopped having time for my homework and my grades were affected. I could no longer play sports, especially contact sports like soccer, for fear of contamination from blood or other bodily fluids (like contracting HIV or AIDS).

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

This morning, May 12, 2005  my son, Jonathan came hurriedly upstairs looking for me.  “Quick come down and see Dr. Phil! He has people with OCD on his program!” he shouted.  I went down to see the folks that were guests with obsessive compulsive disorder that were explaining their symptoms to the audience and Dr. Phil. “ She has the same feelings that I had, I didn’t know someone else had that very same fear!” he said. The program progressed and medicines and vitamin supplements were discussed as being helpful to the subjects, a couple of MDs discussed hospitalization for some patients.  No one had any suggestions for a CURE, only palliative modalities.
