QUESTION: Can you tell me about Mutomba as a homeopathy tincture?  I have been trying to research on the internet and can not find anything on it.

ANSWER: In as far as I personally know there's nothing with that name in Homeopathic remedies. Check your spelling and your source.

Here's a list of Homeopathic remedies:


QUESTION: I am newly practicing the homeopathic approach/alternative medicine. Ive made several things so far that have seemed to help on my family members.  My Mother-in-law suffers from rheumatism. Ive been studying on what herbs specifically are used for her condition. I have no problem finding that its just w/ all of the other medication shes on from the Dr. I want to make sure anything Id give her would be safe. Thanks SO much for your time; its greatly appreciated. 

Below is a list of the things shes currently taking. 

Atenolol (tenorim) 50 mg tablet
Calcium citra/vitamin D3
Premarin 1.25 mg.
Folic acid 1mg.
Gabapentin (neurontin) 300 mg.
Leflunomide (arava) 20 mg.
Methadone (dolophine) 10 mg.
Multi-vitamin 1 daily
Omeprazole Po 1 Cap. Daily
Plaquenil 200 mg.
Potassium Chloride 1 Tab. Daily

Risedronate (actonel) 35 mg

Sertraline (Zoloft) 50 mg.

ANSWER: Glad to hear from you. Unfortunately you failed to mention the homeopathic remedies you are giving her or thinking of giving her. You also fail to specify the reasons why she is on so many medications. Therefore, we cannot in good conscience help you. Your mother-in-law is on too many meds for us to truly be able to help guide you without ourselves doing an evaluation, my best advise is to consult with her physicians and with an alternative medicine practitioner near you.  If you do not know of one, get back in touch with me, and we will help in finding you one. Just provide city and state.


QUESTION:  My question for you...My mother (84 yrs old) is on 10 mg. of Aricept (once daily) and my dad asked me if she could take this stuff call Zeel.  It's homeopathic mediation which she says helps her with her pain more than anything else her doctor prescribed.  The question is ... will this have any effect or side effects if she takes while taking the Aricept?   Here's the website with the list of ingredients:  http://www.iherb.com/Heel-BHI-Zeel-100-Tablets/4515?at=0 

ANSWER:  I am doubtful the homeopathic would affect the Aricept, I have used Zeel for many years and it has been helpful and very safe to use with meds, in most cases. Of course watch closely, start out slow, everyone is different.
