Lycopodium - proving with split doses?

Greetings to all the homeopaths here.

I am a patient of Sarcoidosis, diagnosed in January 2007.

The symptoms were persistent cough , evening fevers and fatigue. I had Iritis in my eyes too.

I was given three doses of Lyc 30C in March by a homeopath, then told to wait for 1 month.

Then he gave me a single dose of Lyc 200C in mid April, followed by single dose Lyc 1M in June beginning.

This sequence of Lyc made me feel a lot better as my case had striking symptoms of Lycopodium like , loss of self confidence , depression , bullying and domineering attitude at home along with acidity and constipation, and dry cough.

I was 80 % cured in July , but I started getting very angry at home and also selfish. I studied a lot of remedies and seemed to find sulphur closest to my picture at that time. I took a single dose of sulphur 200C on July 10th. That resulted in me getting a lot less selfish , less angry and made me a much better person to live with , however that decreased my confidence a bit.

So the net result by the last week of August was , that I was well on all fronts except that I had somewhat less confidence Than what I had when Lyco treatment was working best and a bit of indolence and lassitude was there.

Then I contacted a very famous ( a new one, because the old one was in India, and I am in USA and I thought the fine tuning required at the end of my case would benefit from face to face consultation) and starting August 28th , he put me on split watery doses of Lyc 200C which aggravated me with irritability and constipation. He went down to 30C in a week , and then constinued with 30C for 3 more weeks .As a result, my eye inflammation also returned . He again asked me to take one more watery dose of Lyc 200C last Friday which also resulted in great acidity, and flatulence. (All these doses after august 28th were taken with 2 or 4 succussions between successive doses . 2 pellets of remedy in original bottle , 2 drops from that bottle in a little water in a cup and 2 drops from the cup as my dose).

Now the current situation is that I am having some acidity in the evenings , and mentally I am feeling very irritable , insecure and angry. I felt 85 % well before August 28th and now I feel 30 % well....

The very symptoms which were cured by Lyco from March to July have now come back.

Now, my homeopath is asking me to go on split doses of sulphur after I told him of my consistent degradation in the last 40 days...

I am worried if I am on the right track ?? Have I proved Lyco ?

If yes, what is the way out ?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
There are very few people who prescribe wet doses here, and I am afraid you may not get many answers.

As far as my knowledge of split doses goes, the aggravation ,if any is likely to subside quickly, if you stop taking the medicine.

The best man to clarify your doubts is your homeopath.

Thanks Mr. Murthy.

I stopped taking Lyc in split doses last Friday and I think my aggravations are starting to subside.

If split doses (both 30C and 200C) of Lyco did not work , does that mean I no longer need Lyco ? My confidence level is still not back. Can the LM potencies of Lyc help me ?

But these days I have become very rude and selfish too pointing towards sulphur....

I guess it is better for the aggravation to completely subside before I take a split dose of sulphur ?

Adding onto my last post, I also wanted you to know that I received LM treatment of sulphur in 2004 for about 3-4 months and responded excellent to it. It acted like a panacea on me at that time.

Dear Sameer

If you are happy and got good results with your homeopath in India, contact him again, if possible, and continue the treatment.

We will not be able to give proper advices here excepting discussing general issues.

LMs act very gently, no doubt about that. I again repeat, discuss all your aprehensions with your homeopath.

The best thing to do now is to give a long gap, may be two three weeks before doing anything.

Split doses can be continued despite amelioration, but are to be stopped on the first signs of aggravation.
