Great fatigue as anything becomes an effort,aching all over and in joints, seek warmth and rest under cover.Sense of loss of mental concentration, get very forgetfull as if not in control anymore. Ulcers under the tongue, sometimes with a tingling sensation on left side of tongue, ulcers occasionally burst with pus.Very pale in face. Sensation of not being able to breathe properly with chest compression.

You are nearly a perfect picture of PSORINUM. You must not take this remedy very often and never closer than one week apart. Usually only two doses. 200X or near is an ok potency. Buy the smallest bottle you can get as it is not that often used. 10 grains of small pellets or 3 of the larger ones is one dose. ABC probably has it available.

While this remedy works on the body, you must make an effort to get out and join a depression or hidden illness support group and meet others so you know that you are not alone. No relationship is worth the power you are giving it. Do not let another person hold such power over you. Reclaim your own power. Get determined. Get mad. Get going. You are worth it. You were BORN worth it. Sabra

look deeper into questioning--reccurent glandular fever ---is carcinosin
 
John Stanton last decade
Bernadett, would you discribe yourself as a perfectionist. Like, everything must be super clean and in perfect order?

Are you sensitive about everything, or mostly about your great sorrow and lack of self worth due the abuse of the former relationship?

This will satisfy the question of the second remedy suggestion. Sabra
 
sabra last decade
Sabra,
Yes I am quite perfectionist and indeed very sensitive to many things, don't feel at ease with the crazy world we live in, used to have what I would call a "lot of power", don't mean to sound big headed, I am not at all. I am very passionate about many things, life and a lot of reverence for it. Thank you for support, I have been dragging with this condition too long and have to take control over it.

John,
I will follow your advice, thanks for your guidance.
 
bernadette last decade
not actual advice--only clarifying that typical nosode for recurrent glandular fever is carcinosin----not wise as yet to take carcinosin--without thorough case analysis---unless you are able to manage and access what may occur after taking remedy--best proceed with caution---need be careful prescribing based too stongly mental symptomology-----
 
John Stanton last decade
Good morning John,

I have been reading about carcinosin and yes agreed, one has to be careful with the consequences or after efect if I may put it that way , or taking a remedy which may trigger some strong reaction. I have trained as a herbalist years ago and do have some idea of "reaction after the action"; I have looked deeply into the cycle of this trouble and thanks to your guidance I'm starting to see the pattern of it now. What do you suggest I should do about carcinosin?
 
bernadette last decade
unless we do full case information--i have no valid suggestion...depends on how much involvment you wish ...

if wish to continue here --then--please explain full case health history--in dated chronological order with treatments envolved---this shall include injuries/accidents/illnesses/operations/traumas of any sort (greif-emotional-mental)/drugs used (cannabis;lsd;alcohol;barbituates;xtc;cocaine...etc);prescription drugs and reasons for usage.........etc

Sometime later got involved in another relationship but not ready and too early for it,didn't really want to get involved still took it on board (4 years) ended up in physical and psychological abuse. During this relationship, had severe tonsilitis or even perhaps staphyloccocus throat infection, or perhaps was the early stages of glandular fever.Symptoms relief with essential oils, no antibiotics.
Trip to India for business, got severly sick with sore throat, earache, headache, great fatigue, imposible to get out of bed for 10 days (glandular fever?) No major medication or treatment.
Severe recurring attack at least once a year since, hight temperature, delirium bed rest.
Brother's death 3 years ago, a lot of grief.
Major reoccurence with hight temperature, delirium great emaciation was last September when major change in my life. Since then, mild recurring episodes as I have described them early. Another quite severe episode in the spring this year whilst on field research in Morocco after considerable physical effort and output.Had course of antibiotics without success. Was only diagnosed with glandular fever early this year after extensive blood tests, stool tests and analysis.These are the major events in the last few years.

Do you like cold season?

What kind of climate are you living in at present?
 
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
I am not overly salty or sweet tooth, apart perhaps from the odd craving before periods but not generally and if I do, I try to compensate with more natural foodstuff such as dried nuts and fruit. I don't normally have too much pus formation I don't think but when I have episodes of, I tend to get blisters or ulcers underneath my tongue and these can burst out with pus or used to. I do not have any boils at all on my skin, in fact my skin is pretty clear and generally with a good back ground colour. I'm not crazy about cold season, quite like winter in the mountains with snow and more generally dry and cold rather than warmer and damp. I'm currently at home in France and it does tend to get cold now and will do so later on in the new year. In any case, I'd much rather be in a warm climate especially when it's winter in Europe. I tend to bear with it OK until about Xmas but from January onwards until spring time, it is a vey difficult time for me.
 
bernadette last decade
In winters do you feel very chilly and like to wrap up a lot?
 
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Yes
 
bernadette last decade
please explain thoroughly circumstances and things going on in life at that time and just prior to the said complaints ---concerning acute cystitis and vertigo treatment over 1 year ago...
 
John Stanton last decade
At the moment you need HEPAR SULPH....let John analyse your case further.....that will reveal the second medicine to be given.

Best wishes,
Pankaj Varma
 
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Pankaj, Hepar Sulph, in what potency and for how long?
John, I think I haven't made myself clear. Treatment for acute cystitis and vertigo took place when I was 23 or 25, that's nearly 20 years ago. What I meant to say is that I was following a treatment for over a year, perhaps even 2 at that time.What was going on at that time? I was married, working with my ex-husband in the business and trying to fulill a dream, thought marriage was for me, but looking back on it now, I think I was too young and not ready. I must say that the cystitis came first then sometime later, I had this vertigo condition as I described it on the right side of my head, especially on lying down and rising.
 
bernadette last decade
You can take Hepar Sulph 200 ...two doses...one in the morning an another in the evening.

best,
Pankaj Varma
 
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Thank you!
 
bernadette last decade

Hello John,

I cannot exactly remember all details of India (November 2000) except for the fact that I got very sick.There was a lot of pollution in Delhi and when travelling by ricksaw, one gets very exposed to this pollution. It started with sorethroat i think earache and then high temperature came on. I was stuck in bed for about 10 days, with no strength at all, high fever, aching in every part of m body, great emaciation, very sore in ear canals and throat, not too much diarrhea perhaps just a little. I had no major medical treatment and the complaint slowly subsided.We had to be in various places around Delhi and I went along to the different meetings and so on, not always on top form. The following year, I had a severe reocurrence of this problem, I was at home in France and it was summer time.
 
bernadette last decade
what exact treatment used when reocurred "at home in france"?
 
John Stanton last decade
Nothing in particular, just herbal infusions and essential oils.I wanted to take antibiotics for this but didn't have anything at hand so I didn't. In fact the only times I've take antibiotivs for this condition is this year twice
