Arrow Recently diagnosed with Sjogren's: help!!

Hello all,

So glad I found this website. I live in The Netherlands and I am originally from Peru. My age is 34, married, no children, my mother has osteoporosis and osteopenia.

I've experienced eye dryness since a year. I was recently diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome. Since a week I am using free preservative eye drops called Celluvis (by Allergan). Celluvic is okay but still I have much eye pain when I wake up. I tried looking for other Allergan products in The Netherlands but they are not sold here. However I am experiencing other sympthoms like dry mouth and back pain, speccially in the mornings. In a nutshell I am getting worried!

I'd like to ask about what medicines or what kind of treatment is recommended by homeopathy, and perhaps what has been your experience on Sjogren's patients. I thank you very much in advance for your replies. Thanks again to all of you who collabrate on this forum also!!

Kind regards,
Giannina
Leiden, The Netherlands

Dear Giannina Groetjes (hello in dutch) Its probably a side effect due to some of your prescription medication what meds are you taking ?

Homeopathy can surely help with your ailments but due to the fact it's considered chronic it must be done via proper casetaking with a trained homeopath in person ,not here on line,not possible too complicated. The Netherlands has many good homeopaths.

Default Sjogren's

Hallo Gina,

Thanks for your advice. I am not taking any meds. Hmmm if it's very complicated I'll have to look for an homeopath over here.
However, if anyone knows about this treatment I'll be glad to receive any suggestion ... my eyes are not doing well, I am sure they are not.

Groetjes from Leiden!
Giannina

Hi

Sorry to hear about your sjogrens.

As Gina says you need to consult a qualified Homeopath.

There is no such thing as one remedy to treat every one with this chronic complaint- homeopathy treats people NOT diseases!

I have been treating a lady with Sjogrens for some time and she is improving but the chances of you needing the same remedy as her are very slim. Homeopathy doesn't work like that !

Groetjes Giannina, your imbalace you call "sjogrens" is related to a complete immune systemic disfunction,meaning many organs such as kidneys,lungs........muscles,nerves,joints,lymph glands have been impacted. some symptomology is liked RA,Lupus,Myalgia etc............ So to discuss this massive problem here on line is useless. It takes some serious doing to reverse these systemic symptoms you call sjogrens.Homeopaths take the case from all aspects of healing not only your physical problems but also emotional and mental imbalances such as trauma from the past, including environmental toxins,dietary toxins,allopathic prescription toxins......etc.

Arrow fosforous & nickel on Sjogren's disease?

Hi and thanks a lot for your posts. I've made it to the homeopath! I've just had my first long consultation (miasmatic constitutional makeup?) and I was greatly surprised of the big dive into emotional aspects. Along our chat I was able to realise that as much as I have delayed the decision to go into psicotherapy perhaps it's now time to look closer into it.

Going back to my question, my prescription -as explained by my practitioner- corresponds to the heavier metals, mainly Fosforous and Nickel (4, 4, 4 on the 1st, 7th and 22nd day). Unfortunately I did not have the chance to ask further on this specific prescription. Can somebody help me to clarify on this? how this metals will cure my eye symptoms? why fosforous and/or nickel?

Thanks and best regards,
Giannina

Dear G
I think you meant to say Phosphorus....is that correct?
Why she/he gave you two different remedies i dont know?Normally its only one at a time specially constitutional prescribing.
Phos. was picked on the conclusion that it fits all of your symptoms right now (physical/mental/emotional)

Dear members, dear Gina

-- and even that may not be so, as there is no constitutional prescribing possible with homeopathic remedies. CONSTITUTION is not disease. If this ,,homeopath'', is away with the birds then be it so --

In general, homeoapthic remedies are prescribed on the now present expression of the disease, the disease-symptom-picture and not on layers themes illusions or other unrelated issues.

Hello all, dear Hans,

What is the homeopath definition for 'Constitutional'? (Unfortunately your post was actually not fully clear for me).
Besides that I am actually a bit afraid that even when my practitioner has now a very good insight on my case -our 1st session lasted two hours-, I might still not receive any specific remedy for the pain in my eyes.

passkey has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Default Unfortunately Hans does not accept the

constitutional prescribing that many on this site take for granted, so its no use asking him.

It has long been accepted that illness can only take root in a body that has a hereditary predisposition .

Two remedies that MAY apply are

A- Ruta

B - Euphrasia.

Check them out.
