This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
please take LYCOPODIUM 200C three doses at 6 hour interval on a single day and then subsequently one dose every 3 days.

please take the above for 2 weeks.

gradually, your gastric derangement should get cured.

if you do not get absolutely any relief with this remedy, please come back and we will take your full case.

I have also tried Lyc 200 earlier.
But haven't experienced much relief except for bloating. The constipation still persisted.

Had mentioned everything in detail. Would request you/Dr deoshlok Sharma/Joe De Livera/Forum to provide a proper constitutional remedy.

Thank you for your help & concern. Thanks again
burp2008 last decade
in my opinion LYCOPODIUM should help you.

Do you think you could be gluten intolerant? That would cause your symptoms also. My DD is gluten intolerant and also allergic to milk, and I see that you have issues with milk and irritable bowel, which go hand-in-hand with gluten intolerance sometimes. Just a thought. I'm not a doctor or homeopath, just a parent to a child with severe food allergies.

I have IBS. For most of my life I have been constipated. I would go 7 days without a bowel movement on a regular basis. I also had lots of pain when I finally did go. I also had the nausea, bloating and gas. But I started doing something very simple. I started taking Magnesium everyday. I take a day. That cured me. I became very regular and all the other symptoms have gone away. Also drink at least a few glasses of water everyday...the more, the better. And Walnuts (just a few a day) are a great source of Fiber and Omega 3 fatty acids. I am not a doctor but your symptoms sound identical to mine and this has really cured me! And if none of these Homeopathic remedies dont work, the doctor could perscribe the new med 'Zelnorm'. It works but it is very expensive if you dont have insurance and there is no telling what else it does to your body.

Dear All,

As I said to you that I have consulted many homeopractioners but they failed to cure my disease.They all start with Nux, then sulpher, then ....go no trying medicines on me.

Last week, I made a visit to homeopractitioner where in he advised the following medicines-

1) Bryonia Alba 30/ 1 dose
2)Graphites 10M/42 doses (3 doses per day)
3)Ambra Grisea 10 M/42 doses (3 doses per day)

the doctor has asked me to stop the intake of psyllium husk (isabgol.

Now,the problem is that since last week I had to go without any bowel movement. Moreover, there is lot pain in my rectum.
I am not able to concentrate on my work.
Not only this, urge for sexual pleasure has diminished. My deteriorating health is affecting my married life too.

I am not able to understand to whom I should go for a definite treatment.Thats why I came to the doctors of this forum.

You can ask as many questions as u want.

Just start taking my symptoms and keep posting.

I am requesting all the doctors of this forum to help me out as my health is deteriorating day by day.

burp2008 last decade

Dear Mr. Burp,
when I read your post I thought you were talking about my case. I have exactly the same symptoms and it all started when I was 13 years old after having Jaundice. Day after day it was getting worse until now at the age of 32 years old. I've never knew about homeopathy until very recently. So far I was using traditional medicine to cure my desease with no success. I have used many medicines and since some time ago I used to take a new medicine called 'Zelmac' equivalent to 'Zelnorm'. It only reliefed me while taking the medicine once you stop it the situation is messy once again. Two months ago FDA stopped the approval of this medicine because several heart problems were reported by persons using this medicine.
I am really desperate and would really like to be able to live a normal life again, but so far it seams that nobody was able to treat this problem.
The main issue in both our case is that it all started after the 'Jaundice'!!! so definitly this had something to do with our symptoms now. I hope Mr. Burp to be able to follow up on this issue together, and hopefully we can get to a final solution with this problem. Furthermore I would really appreciate communicating any other probem or symptom you may have. For instance I have also some problems with my tonsils, I want to be able to identify all our common points in order to be able to identify the problem behind our desease.
My best regards.

Dear Mr B,
on 28.08.07 i suggest a remedy did you try or no if no please have a go then we will see you again
faisal qureshi last decade

without going into your case in detail, i would suggest you to take RECKEWEG R7 some 15 drops 4 times a day with 20 ml of water one hour before and after food.

this is a good combination of all remedies which improve the liver and gall functions. i feel, taking this remedy for some 30 days will clear all your problems.
rishimba last decade
Hi fady

In my experience,these combinations are no better than the allopathic medicines you were using, though some people vouch for their usefulness.

Similar medicine
Single medicine
minimum dose is


The usefulness of other variations like these combinations are doubtful. There is no possibility of follow up in case of failure of these combinations to relieve you.

The following are the ingredients of R7.


Active ingredients:
Carduus marianus (Milk thistle) 2X, Chelidonium majus (Calandine) 2X, Cinchona officinalis (Cinchona) 3X, Cholesterinum (Cholesterine) 6X, Colocynthis (Colocynth) 6X, Lycopodium clavatum (Clubmoss) 4X, Nux vomica (Poison nut) 4X.

In case the medicine acts for some time, and then fails you will never know what to do further.

So many medicines together may create a more complex disease.

If homeopathy is so easy, then these Reckeweg products are available for all conditions, and there is no need to consult any homeopath.

Just specify the condition, and the corner health store attendant will give you the medicine.

And cross your fingers and wait to see what happens.

Dear Murthy,
I highly appreciate your feedback, but what do you suggest me to do exactly. I mean I need to try out something but I don't know what should that be.
Please what do you suggest me to do.

Best regards.
Fadyy last decade
faddy, if you want a single remedy, please give in your deatils.

however, the constituents of reckeweg combinations are not inimical. they are either complimentary or non interactive. low potencies do not supress the disease. you decide, what is good for you.
