calc carb 200c

i was consulting with an homeopath from this forum a while back...though i believe that most of his recommendations were through his email and not this forum. after filling out an indepth questionaire and answering many many questions it was recommended that i take Cal Carb 200c in liquid form 6-8 drops in a small about of water sipped slowly.

i ordered the remedy and now i have lost contact with the forum member and i do not think that he posts here any longer...or he has changed his user name.

after reading about both the physical and constitutional descriptions of the remedy i am most confident that this is a correct remedy for me...(though nat mur comes very close as well)..however i do not know how often to take it or if it is to be repeated.

could someone please reccommend the correct dosage? i would be happy to answer any questions.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
A conservative approach would be to take one dose, as you described, and then wait 2 or 3 weeks to see what happens.

calc carb is quite deep acting and you should wait for 2 weeks minimum after a dose of 200c or 1m.

thank you both for your input. i took the Cal Carb 200c as i described yesterday afternoon. i woke up this morning with a headache in the back of my head and with a jittery feeling (heart palpatations)...as if i had had too much caffeine. i shall wait 2 weeks before doing anything else. would either or both of you be available to reccommend the next step in 2 weeks? i appreciate your help.

Patient ID: Sex: Age: female. age 41

Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering? very bad pms. suffer from depression quite badly before i start my period. become very weepy, emotionally intense, tired, feeling of heaviness in entire body and head and chest. cannot think clearly, easily confused poor memory. do not want to get out of bed. overly sensitive and needy though i may not say so all the time. depression has always seemed to be a part of my life....like background noise...sort of a silent 'soul suffering' but becomes much more profound 2 weeks before period.



2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body? I suffer at times from fever blisters on my lips, occasional small painful boils on back of upper and inner thigh, occasional sinus problems, stuffy nose, unhealthy hair, skins and nails, hair loss off and on for many years. bloated tummy.



3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings? feels like complete darkness, no sense of self worth or self esteem. self loathing, cannot stand to look at self in mirror. try very hard to mask suffering so i do not affect my family. i hide my pain very well....or so i think. most people think i am the happiest most loving accepting confident independent person....very loyal...generous and giving. confidante to many friends and family members


4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? just complete soul suffering self loathing, fearful afraid i am falling a part.....and i do not know why.


5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease? i believe as a teenager....entering college. past event....not really one event....very painful unpredictable childhood years. grew up in affluent home....alchoholic ininterested father....controlling and verbally abusive mother...never felt loved or cared for by either parent. always had a feeling of abandonment, unsafe, unprotected though by all appearances we were the perfect family. parents were very self absorbed and could not meet basic needs of children. only cared about how things appeared. father treated me like a 'girlfriend'....mother was viscously mean and would withhold basic needs (food clothing money affections etc..) to punish me. i never understood why i was being punished. was always favored in school years by teachers and peers....chosen for many academic artistic awards and chosen most popular, beautiful, intelligent favorite this and that etc....but never felt worthy....i did not understand why....i shied away from any recognitions as a young child and teenager. trusted only a few close friends despite appearances learned to take care of self and not trust very early. i do not trust easily. i have many talents and interests...but i do not pursue them...or i start to pursue and accomplish interests....but then stop. very much an under achiever for by abilities and capacities.



6. Which time of the day you are worst? mornings...i am much better mentally towards sundown hours and at night. i have a entirley new perception in the evening hours compared to the darkness nad gloon i feel in the morning afternoon hours. i have much more energy in the evening.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? i cannot stand tight clothing around my waists....i absolutely cannot bear this. i think too much...i worry too much. i feel worse after eating meals. i feel better being at home....with my husband and children....i love adorations assurances and affection from my husband....i need this more than is healthy at times i suppose. sometimes i feel better being alone especially when depressed...doing absolutely noting...listening to music....reading...in a warm candlelit room makes me feel better. i do not want anyone to know that i am depressed.



8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)? most definitely before my period...depression is exacerbated.



9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather? i feel much happier during the fall and winter months. i do not like summertime very well...i do not like hot humid weather. bright sunlight makes me very irritable. i like being warm though...cozy warmth in the winter...warm blankets and warm fire. i love wind in any season. i do not mind the rain...i prefer cloudy days over bright sunny days.


10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc. most people assume that i am very care free, patient...almost floating...and i suppose that i am that....but i feel that i suffer inside from deep fear and worry and sadness and i do not know why. i am not arrogant or agressive....i can be overly sensitive weepy and easily offended....emotionally intense especially before period. i cannot bear the feeling of abandonment that is my worst fear. i can be very quiet....but also very talkative with a few close friends. i do not consider myself lazy....but i no not seem to have much ambition or drive. i am very much a caretaker...i love to care and give to others i love quite deeply....again too much so i believe.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
i like thunderstorms. i like the movement of the clouds and the wind blowing...watching the leaves blow on the trees is particularly calming and peaceful to me.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times? no. i do not like to be felt sorry for or pitied in any way when i am hurting. i do love the affections and assurances from my husband though. i prefer to be alone if i am depressed....almost to the point of isolating myself.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife? i adore my children and my husband....they are my world....too much so perhaps. family is my most sacred place on earth. i do not pursue my own interests though i have all the freedom in the world to do so. my interests are my family and their needs and there future....and i know this is not healthy for me. i have many interests....art...painting drawing writing...i love knowledge and learning...i love to design and create jewelry......but i do not....or i will start then stop...it is like i am in a state of inertia when it comes to pursuing my own interests. i would rather prepare a meal for my family or go shopping for someone....

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly? fear of abandonment fear of losing my children. fear for financial future. my fears are completely unfounded. i know this...but i fear them anyway.


12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions? i do not eat sweets or sugars....i feel very poorly after i eat them so i avoid them completely. milk and yogurts upset my stomach. i do not like raw uncooked meat of any kind or very fishy tasting fish. i love pastas rice vegetables and salads. i love cold water. at tiimes i feel better if i do not eat at all....or eat very small amount instead of a full meal.

thistlewish,

take it from me... any homoeopath could write the materia medica of NAT MUR based on all your symptoms.

i have never seen a patient who matches NAT MUR so well in life. this is without doubt, your similimum.

it goes without saying that your remedy for all your problems is NATRUM MURATICUM 200C.

take 3 doses on any one day at 4 hours interval in empty stomach.

then take just one dose of NAT MUR 200C every week ( that is one dose after 7 days )

you will be completely cured in a month.

finally, if you still feel some symptoms are bothering you, take just one dose of NAT MUR 1M.

please forget CALC CARB.

rishimba...

thank you very much for your insight. i feel very inspired and encouraged by your words and recommendation.

could you please explain which symptoms match nat mur so well as you say? i am very interested in your insight.

i have nat mur 200c and i shall take it as you advised...i took Cal Carb 200c last saturday (5 days ago) shall i wait before taking the nat mur or is it okay to take today or tomorrow?

again...tahnk you very very much.
 
thistlewish last decade
in fact 99% of your symptoms match to that of NAT MUR.

if you read the materia medica of nat mur, you will find that nearly all of of your symptoms are covered by it.

you may wait for another week and then you start nat mur as i have told you. now it doesnt matter, its just a matter of time. you have already found your remedy..
 
rishimba last decade
thank you rishimba...i will take the nat mur 200c as you recommend next week. then you say...after 7 days take one dose of nat mur 200c per week...for how many weeks?
i am going to order the 1M potency to have just in case it is needed later.

thank you again rishimba...
 
thistlewish last decade
take nat mur for 2 to 3 weeks max.

wait and note your response after that. if you feel that the symptoms are coming back, take nat mur 1m one dose per week for the next three weeks.
