Hello
have you had a stool sample done
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no stool sample but i have seen a 2-3 inch by 3/8 inch white segment with a stool while doing a colon cleanse 4 weeks ago, been to several central american countries, owned dogs and know what a tapeworm looks like plus other worms. i am reluctant to use herbal remedies as they might inflame my skin condition. i am drawn to homeopathic remedies, wonderin which is best also
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 2 years ago.
There is no homeopathic remedy "for" a condition
Cina for example is used for worms much more often, but more in children.

The remedy has to be individualized by an interview and exam with a classical homeopathy.

Closure
Suphur
Spigellia
Nat mur
Nat phos

All have more requent use.

I would suggest that there are good reqular medical treatments for tapeworm, quick and easy.
Herbally, garlic is useful..food wise

Relist: Inaccurate answer.

Hello
Actually I am a certified classical homeopath.

What questions do you still have that have not been answered?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i apolgize for any rudeness. been unable to work for 3 months and very tired. you said cinea is the remedy for tapeworm? is this what you are suggesting for my tapeworm? dosage? and time/length? i appreciate your time and response to help me. Happy Old New Year ( April 1) Lucy
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 2 years ago.
I will not suggest a specific ultra high dilution for your tapeworm

Homeopathic remedies do not have dosages.
they have potencies.
And as I said the remedy has to be individualized to your mental, emotional, physical and general states and symptoms.

That takes about a 1 to 4 hour interview on average, sometimes longer.
See this link.

www.homeopathic.org, for a list of practitioners.

A remedy would typically be given at a 200C potency, one pill under the tongue, one time, then wait to see, and repeat only if needed.
