Is it bad to take Nux Vomica

Hello doctors,

Since last couple of year I have been experienceing stomach upset especially acidity, burping and bloating.

I have followed Natrum Phos for acidity and it seems it worked almost well but I have had burping and bloating problem. Therefore, I started taking Nux vom 200c everyday once or twice (2-3 drops in 5ml of water). It seems it works well. But if I do not take it I fell fully bloated especially after dinner.

Please let me know whether I can take Nux Vomica 200c over years to get rid of bloating. or are there anything else that I should try.

Best wishes
Annie

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
nux is not a deep acting remedy. it cannot cure chronic ailments. if your problem is chronic, you need to stop all remedies you are taking now, let the symptoms stabilise and then get treated based on totality of your symptoms.

you should not take any medium or high potency remedies on a continuous basis. there are some exceptions though.

Hi Rishimba,

Many thanks for your nice response. I am not sure whether my problem is chronic but I guess it is chronic as I have been suffering around two years. Allopathic remedies also did not work well.

But if I do not take NUX Vomica 200c especially at night I feel fully bloated and have sleeping disturbance as well as constipation tendency. Constipation is significantly improved if I took Nux Vomica twice at night (it is just Pankaj varma's recommendation in the forum).

So, please advise me what I should do or what medicine I should take. My main problem is bloating/feeling full after meal especially after dinner. I am having toilet everybody but it seems it is not clearing well that is producing gas in the stomach. I also have burping problem.

Best wishes.

some additional questions;

- what was happening in your life 5 to 6 years back when you started having the gastric problems. how old is your son. do you think the gastric problem started when you were pregnant or it started just after the delivery?

- are your periods normal? or are they suppressed, painful or irregular? do you think the gastric problem actually has a relation to your menstrual cycle. if yes, tell me the relation.

- are you always thinking about your son's autism problem and feel sad about it. could it be a reason for your problem.

- do you feel better in hot or cold weather.
 
rishimba last decade
Dear Rishimba,

My gastric problem was not related to anything initially. Suddenly it started then I have done endoscopy of the upper part of the stomach. It was found that there is some reddish area in the stomach but in the next examination it was gone naturally. Around that time I have started taking a bit more oily and spicy food than before.

However, it was almost OK. But surprisingly since last one year I have been experienceing stomach upset especially after meal. Main problem is bloating/feeling too full.

Nothing is related with my menstrual cycle and it is very normal.

But of course it may be related with my mental stress as I am always worried about my son over and over. But it is related very much with food. The feeling is that if I do not take any food I will be happy. If I took less food or if I do not drink water after meal I feel a bit better. I have also experienced that acidic fruits or juices aggravate the condition.
Moreover, if I am empty stomach some times I started producing gas in the stomach.

Best wishes.

Annie

Dear Rishimba,

-is the gas expelled only upwards or downwards as well.

Mostly upwards.

- after eructation, is there any relief.

Yes, there is a great deal of relief after burping (that is some gas come out from the stomach with a sound).Eructation does not relief me at all.

- is the eructation empty or is it sour or bitter.

It is a mixture of sour and empty. That is some time it is sour but again some time it is empty. I should rather say sour 70-80%, empty 20-30%

- do you have heart burn during eructation.

Yes, a little bit of heart burn is there.

- does your hunger subside just after taking a little food and soon after that you start feeling heavy.

No, my hunger does not subside with taking a little amount of food. But most of the time (may be 70-80%) I start feeling heavy after taking little food.

- dont you feel the same thing after lunch around 3 to 4 in the afternoon.

At lunch I am used to eat sandwitch and it is a bit better for my stomach. So, I do not feel full around 3-4 PM. But may be around 5-6 PM I start feeling that my stomach is producing a little bit of gas that feels a bit full but it is bad after dinner. Anyway, condition is better in some day but bad in other day.

Regards

Annie

take CARBOVEG 30C some three doses everyday at 3 hours interval. you may have to take it for a few days to get a sustained result.

to cover the psychic cause of your ailment, you may take NAT MUR 200C three doses at 4 hour interval on any ONE day. this will help you to get cured faster.

the day you take NAT MUR 200C, please dont take CARBOVEG or any other remedy.
 
rishimba last decade
Dear Rishimba,

Many thanks for your prescription. I do hope this will resolve my problem. By the way, should I have to take CARBOVEG 30c at 8 hours interval? (you wrote-take CARBOVEG 30C some three doses everyday at 3 hours interval).

Please let me clear it.

Regards

Annie
 
grchakraborty last decade

Dear Rishimba,

Since January 20, 2007, I am taking CARBOVEG 30c 3 doses every three hours interval.

I think I have experienced good result but some time I am experienceing pain around the lower abdomen and pelvic area especially today around noon it was a bit severe. Of course the overall performance is excellent.

Could you please let me know what I should do?

Best wishes.

Annie
 
grchakraborty last decade
this pain could be due to many reasons, you need to take up each probable cause and rule it out,

- appendix; get a check done

- bladder infection; urine check.

- injuries; recall and take arnica 30c for quick relief.

- constipation; ensure proper bowel movements by taking lots of water and fibre food, some exercises.

if all the above are negetive, you need to give me the modalities of the pain, like what makes it better or worse, when is it worst, type of pain, it feels as if... etc.
 
rishimba last decade
Dear Rishimba,

Many thanks for your response. The pain was very bad on January 24, 2007 for around two hours after the toilet!. I have taken two glasses of water then felt that gas is coming out. After two hours I started feeling better and I do not feel anything today. I felt a bit heavy and pressed pain around the lower aboden-plevic area. I think this time it was a bit different type of pain.

My bowel movement is OK but for other two options I have to check with the doctor.

Any way, should I continue to take CARBOVEG? I think it helps me a lot but the condition has not changed completely yet. Thank you very much for that.

Best wishes.

Annie

annie,


if you do not get complete relief with 30c potency,
now you can take CARBOVEG 200C just three doses at intervals of 4 hours on any one day.

this will give you a complete relief.

also, for you abdominal pain, get a proper check done to rule out anything serious. i feel its just due to gas and it should be over with a few doses of LYCOPODIUM 200C, but its better not to take any chances.

Dear Rishimba,

Many thanks for your nice reply again.

I will take CARBOVEG 200c for one day to get relief of it.

Last 3-4 days there were no abdominal pain. So, should I take LYCOPODIUM 200c now or I will take when pain is there.

Lastly, you wrote 'bhalo theko' that is very interesting! how do you know that. I thought you are an american!

My gratitude for finding 'CARBOVEG' for me. It really helps me a lot-your nice diagnosis.

Best wishes.

Annie,

do not take lycopodium if there is no pain. take it only when you need to take it.

well, i am an indian but working in dubai in the offshore oil and gas industry as a pipeline engineer. you should have known by now which state i am from..

though i am a qualified homoeopath, i use it only for social work and my friends and family. possibly after retirement i will do it full time.

best wishes
