Carbo veg or LycopodiumHi, I am 45 years old married male. Have been suffering from acid reflux for 6-7 years and had taken allopathy and then ayurvedic medicine to manage it. I wanted to try homeopathy since it has flared up again.
My symptoms are - acid reflux after eating lunch or dinner, symptoms are worse after dinner when lying down, at night sometimes wake up since I cannot breathe properly and have to go out into fresh air for relief, lots of gas (flatulence), feel better when I press/massage my own legs resulting in belching and release of gas, craving for sweets (which is since childhood though), sore lower throat and cough, lower control on urination. Currently have stress due to business. Food taken is bland but exercise is not much. Vegetarian, non-smoker.
Based on these symptoms (esp. acid reflux and flatulence) and reading on the forums, looks like I need to take Nat Phos and Carbo Veg or Lycopodium. I am confused between Carbo Veg and Lycopodium. I am not sure which one to take and in what dosage.
Any guidance will be appreciated. Thanks.

coolsam2017 7 months agoI think the psoriasis on the hand treated wrongly .. that's why you developed asthma type symptoms etc ..
Where was the psoriasis on hand ? On Palm or back side ? Or where if I could see a pic .. click my name below and email me.
Till you email me .. take one dose of Nat.phos 200c. Only one dose only 4 drops once. No more . In a disposable glass with some water in it shake well before drink and drink slowly.

♥ healer21 7 months agoThanks for the response. The breathing difficulty is not like asthma, it is due to phelgm causing choking. The phelgm is being caused due to acid reflux as per doctors.
The psoriasis is cured so there is no image available now.
coolsam2017 7 months agoWhere was psoriasis on palms or on back side of hands etc ?
♥ healer21 7 months agoDear coolsam,
Explain to healer 21 the locations of the psoriasis
And what medicine you took for it?
Did you have acid reflux symptoms before psoriasis?
Even mild symptoms?
Have you had antibiotics in the last few years?
acid reflux- often the body gets out of balance due to long term wrong diet choice and use of antibiotics. Our body has an alkaline set point. Over time eating too much acidic food and drink causes cells to
Be at an acidic set point. Sugar does this, soda, fast food,
Too much spicy, tea , coffee and so on. I had a relative with
Really bad gerd, caused by a new habit of having a large piece of chocolate before bed. He took meds and stopped the chocolate and in
3 weeks gerd was gone for good.
Also if you have had antibiotics, you need to start replacing the gut flora
That was killed off- you can start by having a half cup of plain yogurt twice a day.
You must handle the diet correctly to get a real cure.
Remedies will help, but diet cause has to be fixed.
After you eat right for a month or so, you will notice
When you have had too much acidic stuff and can
Cut back the amounts.

♥ simone717 7 months agoThanks to both of you for the responses.
The GERD symptoms have been there for 6-7 years much before psoriasis. There was endoscopy done then and nothing was found in it. GERD keeps going up or down depending on medicines and lifestyle.
Psoriasis (about 6 months back) was on palms (not back of hand) and lower side of feet. It was cured by ayurvedic treatment.
Have not had too much antibiotics except 1 time for fever and 1 time for stomach infection in last 2 years. But acidity and GERD problem has been long-term. In fact, acidity (but not gerd) has been an issue for me since college days. Even my mother suffers from the same.
Agree completely on the diet part. I think the recent GERD flare up has been due to stress related to business.
Flatulence has been there for a year now. It is becoming worse.
coolsam2017 7 months agoTry Kali.mur 200c .. 4 drops a day only once, in a disposable glass with some water in it for two days only.
Along with this try Nat.phos 200c. 4 drops a day only once, in a separate disposable glass with some water in it only for one day ..
20 minutes difference minimum in both remedies.
Don't eat or drink anything 30 minutes before and after taking medicine. Don't use coffee or mint or oily foods or junk food etc. Don't place medicine near strong perfumes etc.
Follow all precautions carefully .. Notice changes and improvements and update after three days.
You can email me your case page link by clicking my name if I'm not replying.
♥ healer21 7 months agoTook both doses. Still facing same symptoms. In fact, symptoms seem to have become worse and am having difficult breathing at night due to phlegm in throat. In the morning after drinking water and then tea, green mucus loosens up in the throat which I can spit out. Later I am also able to remove green mucus from nose. Then till lunch time I am ok. After lunch, things start becoming bad and after dinner it is worse. Flatulence is also there. Lower throat is sore and feels like there is a lump in the back of throat. Would appreciate if you can pl. guide more or else should I visit a local doctor? Thanks.
coolsam2017 7 months agoNat.mur 200c .. one dose only in a separate disposable glass. 4 drops only. In morning 10-11am. NO MORE.
Notice changes and improvements carefully and update after two days.
If you see no results please consult a local physician.
Don't forget to update in any case.
