Dear Mr. Rishimba,
as I stated before, I have the exact symptoms mentioned by Mr. Burp who initiated this case. I also would like to apologize from him if I drifted this forum from his case. Please find hereafter the answers to your questions:

Patient ID: Sex: Age: Nature of work: Habits:
Male / 32 years old / electrical engineer (work in the office all day), no major stress situations

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

1. Describe your main suffering?
Constipation since more than 10 years. Very weak body, feel bloated

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
Fatigue, weakness

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
When constipated for long period I feel very uncomfortable and agressive

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.
Constipated for more than 8 days is my worst situation, bloated, weak, tired, don’t tolerate anything, don’t feel hungry at all

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
It all started after my Jaundice case when I was 13 years old. I am 100% sure that all this started after the jaundice and I am sure it has something to do with it

6. Which time of the day you are worst?
Depends on how long I’ve been constipated

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.
I feel better during summer time (hot season).

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)?
I don’t think so

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
During hot weather. Actually I can not tolerate cold at all, and during cold season my feet are freezing all the time

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.
A bit moody

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
Nothing special

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
Doesn’t matter

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc?
No, I am not emotional at all

I’m single. I have good relations with friends

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
Sometimes I have a desire for sweets, Big desire for bread. Aversion from milk

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?

14. How is your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?
Depends on how long I have been constipated. After a bowel movement I feel hungry, after being constipated for several days it is less

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?
This is another “BIG” problem. Sweating is normal (quantities) but smells awful. When sitting for long period and especially in cold time, the genital area starts itching and feeling like sweating with a very strange and bad smell.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?
Bowel movement very rarely, sometimes I don’t have any bowel movement for more than 8 days. Stool is yellowish colored , hard, most of the time, a kind of white gelatin type material on it (mucus). Sometimes even when constipated for long duration the stool is not hard at all

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?
My sleep is very regular, but the problem is that I wake up in the morning tired, I feel like if I was standing on my feet the whole night. I sleep everyday for at least 8 hours. No particular posture of sleeping

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?
Not all the time. I am very hyper sexually (get exited very fast) and come very fast (precocious ejaculator)

20. Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? How are you different from others?
As I already mentioned I have that very strange feeling of itching and sweating in the genital area with a very bad smell. It is causing me lots of inconvenience between people.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
I have used the following traditional medicines (never been to an homeopath before): Zelmac, mestinon, seroxat, spasmoman, mucinum, forlax
Many of them reliefed my symptoms temporary and once stopped returned to the same situation.

please start with SULPHUR 200C three doses on a single day at 4 hours interval. take them in empty stomach.

after 5 days, repeat SULPHUR 200C but only two doses 4 hours apart.

if you see any difference any difference in you, it can be continued for another 10 days.

if you do not feel absolutely any difference, you can try remedies like GRAPHITES or CARBO VEG.

If you both agree with my proposition than it will be very useful to proceed further in the case. Dr. rishimba has suggested Sulpher. It is a deep seated and inter-current remedy therefore,we should try it first and you have selected Alumen which is also a remarkable remedy in case of constipation which can be considered if sulpher fails to respond.

Dear all,
I highly appreciate your feedback, I'm still searching where to get the medicine from, in my country it is not so easy to get homeopathy medicines. I've been directed to a pharmacy today, so finger crossed. As soon as I get the medicine I will let you know the results.
Best regards.
Fadyy last decade
dr. mahfooz's suggestion is excellent.
Rajendra last decade

I am 45 years old and also sufffering from severe constipation for last one year.I used to take ayurvedic laxative virachni everyday but now it seems that they have changed the formula in their improved version so it is not working on me now.I tried to take bryonia30 and nat mur6x along with new virachni but without any success. Can anybody suggest me which homeo medicine would be suitable for me please?

bmathur last decade
please give more information about the modalities of all your ailments and yourself in particular.

there are nearly 30 remedies for constipation and to find out the suitable one for you, we need to know your concurrent symptoms, the etiology of the disease and the pathogenesis ( what exactly is causing it )
rishimba last decade
Mr. burp take the remedy suggested by the forum consultants, but with that it is important about the diet......i think you have lactose intolrence , allergy to milk & dairy products, so avoid them from your diet, together with the medicine you will certainly be ok.
dr. sally last decade
Water Therapy(WT) in this case will be the most effective way to solve this problem and all other associated problems.

1. drink 1.5 ltr of clean and and pure water (i.e. drinking water from municipal taps) as first thing in the morning even without brushing your teeth. This water should be consumed within 10-15 minutes.
2. half an hour rest by lying down flat on your back. u can read newspaper or any book of yr interest or watch tv etc.
3. resume normal activityof daily routine.
4. no liquid or solid intake upto one hour of finishing water intake.
5.WT not be resorted to if liquor consumed durung preveous night.
6. During the day keep on taking 200 ml of water every 2 hours. But no water with meals.

God willing,You will feel the difference with three days.
Best wishes.
