nux vomica and insomnia

Dear Friends

Problems with insomnia, bad dreams (3a.m.), nervious, irritability during the day.

Nux Vomica 15CH 4balls every night has gone WONDERFULL for sleeping.

After two weeks, Started to take one night and two without medicine but the second night is not so good as the night with dose.

Could be better to start NUX VOMICA 30CH once a week ? If true, during how many months?

Indefinitely?

Thanks for your kind answer

Dear pappma00,

You are most close to NUX-VOMICA. The potency which you used in past is lower which is better for insominia and digestion etc. But your mental symptoms need higher dilution. I suggest you to take it in 30 potency one dose daily at night for a week and come back with changes please

Dear Dr. Mahfoozurrehman

5 nights taking Nux-Vomica 30CH. ALL nights dreams VERY GOOD. Very quiet at sleeping, VERY WELL with relatives during the day (no irritability).

You suggested 7 days with Nux-Vom.

My doubt is: 7 days and stop taking Nux-vom and to observe changes during the followings days without homeopathy?

Thank you very much !!

Dear dr. Mahfooz

7-8 nights with nux vom. 30CH.

Very well at sleeping (very good drems...) and during the day.

Two days after stopping treatment symptoms start to appear: at sleeping more nervous, with a little of anxiety, during the day each day is passing I think it is going worse. I start to think in all again.

Those 7-8 days were excellent for me and for my wife, all very good!

Why are returning symptoms again?


Please help.

Thank you very much,

Ppalma

please take Single dose empty stomach Sulpher-200 and note the changes report after 4 days.

If you are benefitted by Nux.vomica, but the same unchanged symptoms have come again after two days, it means that you have to go for split doses of the same medicine, once in every two days.

Mix three or four pellts of Nux.vomica 30c, in about 250ml. of water, shake vigorously, and take one sip out of it.

Now, wait for two days, hit the medicine bottle against your palm 5 to 6 times, and take another sip.

This routine you continue once in two days. Try for two weeks like this and report.

You can keep the bottle in the refrigerator,capping it well.

Dear Drs.

I am currently with the treatment of Nux Vom. 30CH dilluided in water. Days and nights are not so good as when taking the three balls although I will wait to complete two weeks as prescribed and see results...

Two months ago I am suffering from heaviness in legs (exactly at calf muscles) with certain swelling increasing when finishing the day. Abdomen is also swollen with the same paute.

After sleeping, both abdomen and legs are better and at the end of the day appears another time the trouble.

Perhaps this is related with the mental symptoms...

Any treatment compatible with the another of Nux Mov. ?

I am very anxious, worried with this trouble.

Thank you very much.

dear Dr. Mahfooz

The summary of the treatment is the following:

A) Before homeopathy: irritability, obstination, very bad dreams.
B) During Nux Vomica 30CH one dosis every day during a week: WONDERFUL during the day and at dreams. Very well resting.
C) Two weeks with split doses (four balls in 250cc): During the day good. During sleeping there are some obstinated dreams altough I can rest.

In consequence, sleeping could be better but I can identify a good effect from split dosis.

Any recomendation for future? Is possible to repeat treatment (B) or (C) in some periods with nerviosim?

Thanks Dr. for your answer.

Oh! What a way of splitting the medicine?

It is a wonderful idea.

Is it discussed in any book? I am interested to read article on it.
 
Rajendra last decade
Dear Rajendra

It is there in Organon 5 th edition, and elaborated more in the sixth edition, by Hahn. himself, about two hundred years back.

This is not some thing new. However, 80% of the homeopathic prescribers in the world, either don't know about it, or don't care.

Just google for 'split dose homeopathy' and you have about 123,000 hits to read.

You can search on ABC also. There are many threads on this subject.

mR. mOORTHY'S VIEWS AS UNDER :

' However, 80% of the homeopathic prescribers in the world, either don't know about it, or don't care. '

iF THIS IS THE SITUATION THEN THE NUMBER OF PERSONS DYEInG DUE TO aLOPATHIC TREATMENT with a Certificate that we cannot do anything against them as they have licence to kill mercilessy any number of people by wro g medicines or inefficient surgeries.

I have already given a glimpse on this in my earlier mention about deaths due to wrong prescriptions and un-necessary hospitalization in a country like USA.

God only save people in a country like India.

After two weeks without Nux Vomica sympthons are returning (especially during the day)

My realtives say that my mood goes up and down very fastly. I am starting again to be a little irritable, not to be contradicted by relatives and so on, as before Nux. Mov.

Dreams are not so bad.

The period with Nux Vom. 30CH every night was EXCELLENT.

The second period with the split doses was not so brilliant but I could stand.

These two weeks without treatment I feel (and my relatives also do) I am not so relaxed and my obstination is growing every day.

Any recommendation please?

May I repeat any of the treatments with Nux. Vom. 30CH?

Thank you all.
 
ppalma00 last decade
I hope Dr.Mahfooz concurs with my suggestions.

If you felt better with taking nux.vomica every night, and didn't feel that much better with the split dose, this is what to do.

Procure Nux.V 30c in liquid form (It is available in all homeopathic shops).

Mix two drops in about 30ml. of water, and take it as a dose just before going to bed.

Hit the corked liquid medicine bottle against a bound book, 3 times, before taking the next dose. Mix this succussed medicine in water as told above and take it.

Repeat every night for one week, and stop.You must succuss the medicine each time before taking.Report after a week.

Make sure that there are no odors on you (perfumes etc), near you (in the room), and in your mouth before taking the medicine.

Hi patient nux is better medicine but you can try thuja occi 30 4 pills at night after completion of Nux vom liquid,pellets or wet split dosages.Thanks

We can't decide before hand, what could be the next medicine.

We have to select it based on the symptoms the patient presents then.

Dear Drs.

I will try it during a week and I will report changes several days after finishing the treatment.

Thanks to all.
 
ppalma00 last decade
Dear Dr. Murthy

Here summarize the results:

One week 2 drops every night of Nux Vomica 30CH in liquid form. Results both during day and sleeping are EXCELENT.

After finishing treatment, 15 days without Nux Vom.:
- Sleeping very good.
- During the day, the behaviour with relatives degradates every day. A little serious and anxious.

After this observation with nux vomica in several forms I see this medicine is the exact treatment needed for the behaviour alterations.

Any idea to proceed?

Please, let me know if there is any problem with adopting the last treatment with nux vomica during several months, perhaps, alternating with some weeks without medicine....??

Thanks or the answer.
