Homeopathy and Health Forum
Sameer seems to be gone, does anyone else want to take my case?It has been a while. I originally posted here:
But that was a few years ago. I am feeling like I need a homeopathic remedy again, and would like some insight into which one I should take. Basically it is still for social anxiety. I want to start over from where I am now. Will post symptoms if someone shows interest.

I cannot find the basic questionairre, but I have some memory of the types of things it asks. I could attempt to do it from memory, or, if someone could point me toward it, I could fill it out. Sameer was doing a good job, some of the things he prescribed helped a lot, I was a mess when I started and I am doing much better. It's just that I still have some serious issues. I want to talk to someone brilliant and ambitious, who would like to solve a difficult case.

♥ telescope 2 years agoI found David's questionairre, and I am filling it out. I have also emailed him to ask if he will take my case.
LisaX 2 years agoHi Lisa,
No one uses Davids questions. No one
on here uses the Sankaran method that
Sameer used. People dislike David's questions as they are way
too long, if someone took your case they would ask their own
set up questions. You can of course, click on names and see who
is on here working and their cases, and then ask for someone by
name in a new thread if you like anyone.
David has not been on here in 5 months-
he does not read emails from here or
answer them or respond in any way to
anyone from here trying to contact him.
If you want Sankaran type prescribing why don't you Call
Sameer in San Diego and see if he can suggest anyone like in
India that you can afford, as Sameer is very expensive to go

Ok. I have already started filling out the questionairre, so I will probably post what I have, but instead of finishing it I will await someone else's questions. I will ask you: If I like Sameer and David, who will I probably like that is still around?
LisaX 2 years agoTruthfully?
You are used to that type of case taking.
There are talented people on here who are very good at curing people,
the old fashioned way.
They match the remedy with physical, mental, emotional, better by
worse by, thermals, etc. They match those things with the materia
medica with remedies that have solid provings from 100's of years.
Sankaran and all his seminar teachers all say you must use his method
via in person, skype, some of the teachers do the phone- but no one
is good at this method online. I have not seen anyone cured on here
with any of those new remedies using that method.
So if you want your case taken the way Hahnemann taught -
for you I would ask for Telescope -
personality wise I think that may work for you.
♥ simone717 2 years agoOk, good. Here is the start I got on David's questionairre:
1. What are the issues in your life that bother you the most. Not physical issues but mental or emotional ones. List each one separately and describe why each one bothers you so much.
Shyness and inhibition. It is tricky to put into words but I want to be very clear about what is going on, because I know that is a very general symptom. I have a sense of not fitting in, of being different from other people, of just not understanding how the social world works. I’ve often been accused of having Asperger’s Syndrome, but I’ve never been diagnosed with it by a professional (and I’ve seen a lot of them) so I probably don’t have it, and it’s probably irrelevant whether I do or not. I see the way other people interact with each other, and it’s like they all get each other right away, like there’s some kind of collective group-mind that they’re all a part of, and I don’t think I can ever be a part of that. I don’t even desire to, it kind of creeps me out in a way, but I don’t want to feel alone either. I would like to have a sense of belonging, to have a group of loyal friends that I can be myself with. If you are familiar with the enneagram, I am very strongly type 4. I tend to be withdrawn and aloof around people, because I assume I’m not really a part of things until I’m specifically invited, and even when I am I’m skeptical of it. I feel like I have to hide my real personality because I will be judged for not being “normal,” but at the same time, I resent the expectation that everyone is supposed to act exactly the same. I don’t see any real purpose to my trying to fit into the cultural norm, because it seems like that job is already taken, and it would be more interesting for me to put my energy into something unique. I don’t like for people to know too much about me because I don’t trust people very much, and I am afraid they will use any personal information against me to try to hurt me. I don’t like to make eye contact or call people by their name, it makes me very uncomfortable. I don’t like small talk or clichés or when people hit on me or try to sell me stuff or otherwise try to engage me in a type of interaction I have no interest in, I know that there is a certain amount of just going through the motions that is required in order to have a social life at all but I just don’t want to, I’m weary of it, I don’t want to play the game anymore but I don’t have the courage to openly flout it so I just keep everything to myself and don’t let anybody in. There are two main reasons this situation is agonizing to me: First, as I mentioned above, I would really like to have a sense of belonging in the world, to have a place where I fit in, just as I am, without having to pretend to be someone else. Second, it feels like the inhibition itself is inherently unhealthy, like my energy is overly constricted. I don’t feel free, I don’t feel like I’m really living. My vision of how I would like my life to be is completely different than how it really is.
One thing that I think I need to explain, because I suspect that it’s relevant somehow, but it’s hard to formulate: I have a fear of the power of collective opinion. The thing I dislike the most is when I feel like I am being characterized in a certain way without my consent. It makes me feel like people are doing a kind of voodoo on me or something. Once I am characterized in a certain way, I feel like it determines how I am able to act in that situation, like the rules of the game have been set and I have to play it within that context. I’m very sensitive to the way that people frame things in conversations, to the dynamic that they are trying to set up, but I feel powerless to do anything about it.
2. What emotions are the most troublesome for you? What situations provoke these emotions. How do these emotions make you act? Do you feel any ill effects from expressing or not expressing these emotions.
I feel ashamed of my personality, and humiliated when people notice that I have these problems. I do not like feeling vulnerable or exposed. Expressing negative emotions usually makes me feel worse, like I have given away all my power, like I am naked.
3. What incidents in your life have had a deep impact on you? Describe each incident in detail and how they made you feel? What did you do in those situations? What effect have they had on your life?
I’ve been in therapy before, and I’m actually very tired of telling my story, there’s nothing cathartic in the telling of it anymore. Also I’m afraid of posting it publicly because if someone in my family happens across it they will obviously recognize the story and know it is me, so I’m really not comfortable with that. Can send it privately if it is important.
4. What are you afraid of? Especially important are phobias, but it might be objects, situations or events that just produce a high level of anxiety. How do you manage your fears? How do you react when confronted with these fears? What would be the worst situation for you to be put in that would provoke these fears? You may need to talk about each fear/anxiety separately.
Phobias: Insects, this has been reduced somewhat through desensitization (had a bad bug problem at my last apartment so I had to just get used to them) plus maybe some of the other remedies that I took helped...I’m afraid of sickness and death, of losing consciousness, of being in situations where I am not in control. The main thing I’m afraid of is uncomfortable social situations. I’m afraid of people having power over me and misusing it. I’m afraid of being judged, and of it having negative real-world consequences. The most terrifying thing I can think of is for someone to decide that I am crazy, so I get committed to a mental institution, where I am drugged and restrained against my will and have all my freedom taken away.
And here is the general food cravings and weather type stuff:
Strongly addicted to coffee, which has a positive effect on me overall. I like it hot and with cream. I like cheese, garlic, ginger, lemon. I despise beans and peas, and also gloopy processed "cheese," which makes me gag.
I do not do well in hot weather, it saps all my energy. It is very hot lately where I live. I like when it is cool and overcast, I like rain and thunderstorms. I like fall and winter, and do not like spring or summer. Today it was overcast, not actually raining, but I could smell the rain clouds and inhaled deeply of it and it brought me back to life for a while.
I'm not a morning person, my energy increases as the day goes on. I do best in the evening, about 5 to 8-or-so.
Physical symptoms: I have headaches. I have one right now. Kind of a dull overall sickly pain, throughout my whole head with pressure in my sinuses. I have a lot of tension in my jaw, neck, and face, especially on the right side. My periods are too heavy and too frequent, and I get angry easily just before them, and cry easily during them. I sometimes have dizziness with loss of vision upon standing up, which I used to find scary but now I just ride it out (there is an altered state of consciousness involved, though it only lasts a few seconds>) I have pain throughout my body that I think is a solidification of emotional pain, because it has that kind of tone to it.
I will describe my symptoms from today, since it is what prompted me to post on the forum again: Headache all day, feeling of heaviness and a desire to lie down on my back, which brings relief in the sense that it feels really good to lie down, it doesn't make the heaviness go away but it stops feeling like a negative thing. It is soothing to my body and my emotions but I get mentally bored. At lunch I had had the momentary thought that someone might've slipped something into the coffee because everything got all wavy and weird like I was tripping, but now I think it was just a migraine coming on. I went to lunch alone and was bummed out about it, wishing I had a friend to go to lunch with, thinking that my isolation makes my life seem inconsequential. I've been very undisciplined, I don't feel good so I do things to comfort myself. My skin feels clammy.
I tend to be undisciplined and disorganized in general. I like to do art, and to study metaphysical stuff. I have a vivid imagination.
I will now await further instructions.

LisaX 2 years agoBy the way, just for the sake of setting the records straight, I have never ever followed Sankaran's methods and neither do I have any plans to do so. I always pick remedies according to strict Hahnemannian principles which incorporates classical miasmatic prescribing for chronic diseases.
Nice to hear from you Lisa, and happy to know that you are doing better. I can still prescribe for you if you would like. Take care.

LisaX 2 years agoThe day before I posted that, I got upset because I expressed myself and someone shot me down and completely dismissed what I had said, in front of a bunch of other people. I'm still upset about it. That's probably what provoked the symptoms from yesterday.
