Repeated Nux Attacks

I must sound like a broken record. Periodically, I get Nux provings. Primarily, ineffectual urging at stool. I last took a 1LM dose of Nux on Jan 3rd. Nothing since. Every 10 days or so, I get an attack of Nux symptoms. They dissipate, but then come back. I've taken various potencies - misguidedly by my own self-prescription- over the last year. I've sworn off self-diagnosis and am hoping to simply wait out the symptoms. However, they just keep going and going. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what could be happening? I don't drink coffee/tea etc, which produce similar symptoms. I'm sure this is due to Nux, but I don't know why it comes in periods like this and why it keeps coming for months on end. Any suggestions much appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
A proving should not come and go. If your vital force repelled it once, why would it come back.

I suspect you have something else which needs addressing, rather than the Nux proving.

Did Nux help you ever ?

Sir,
Thanks for your reply. Yes, in Nov 2006 I took a 1M dose of Nux. It improved my IBS symptoms tremendously. About 6 months later, I was feeling symptoms of stuffiness in the chest after meals etc. I took another dose of Nux 1M. It wrecked havoc on me. My previous IBS like symptoms returned. I've never been able to quash them again - I've tried repeating nux in lower potencies as an antidote, tried various other antidotes - coffea - tried treating the new symptoms - sepia and nat mur. Finally, I've given up all meds for the last two months. However, I keep getting these 'nux' attacks. I call them that, because in addition to stomach ailments there are new symptoms I never had: awaking at 3am every night. Headache after stool -head rush from reverse peristaltic activity. I really am at wits end. I am just praying I haven't permanently proved Nux. I'm hoping to wait it out, but don't know how long to do so. Thanks for your help.

Okay

COCCULUS 6C , just 1 pellet dissolved in 8oz water.

1 spoon from there using a disposable spoon as dose.

Then report your status 3 days after this SINGLE dose.

Mr. Vermani,
As supplement to my previous statements, I wanted to let you know that about 2 weeks ago I took a 6c dose of Anacardium - to treat the rectal inactivity I have been experiencing. It helped immensely for about 1 week. Does this add anything to your diagnosis? Thanks again for your help.

There is also the sensation of the anus retracted and the abdomen as well. That is to say it feels like I have to push out on both of these organs. Sorry, just wanted to give you the full picture.
 
thekind78 last decade
Hmm... In light of the new information, I am more inclined towards


Opium 6C SINGLE DOSE

taken similar to the procedure described above.

Sir,
Is it possible to permanently affect the body with homeopathy? From all my readings, nux is one of the shorter acting remedies. Here I am, two months after taking a 1LM dose still suffering. Thanks for your input/insights.
 
thekind78 last decade
Well , there are hypersensitive people for whom the effect can last much longer than normal people.

In these cases, the bad effects need to be anti-doted.

Go ahead with the opium dose and post results.

Sir,
It is very difficult for me to acquire Opium. I can't find it locally and have to import at a significant cost. Is there an alternative? Thanks again.
 
thekind78 last decade
where are you located
 
sameervermani last decade
Here in the US. I tried to look on this website but the only available source is from Europe. At a charge of over 9 euros.
 
thekind78 last decade
I think Helios UK charge about 4 euros shipping and 4 euros for the remedy, but their minimum international order is 8 euros approx.

So in 12 euros u can get 2 medicines. This ain't that bad.

It kinda sucks that they ban homeopathic remedies here in the US and sell cortisone creams OTC.

Sameer.

Sir,
Indeed. What a shame. You know, I wanted to ask someone why this marked periodicity of attacks? I mean, sometimes I feel ok. Then a reocurrance. Is this unique to Nux? Or do all homeopathic remedies display this behavior?
 
thekind78 last decade
It's a bit odd to have periodic attacks I must say.

How many doses of LM1 did you take, and tell your dosing procedure. (size of remedy bottle.. etc..)
 
sameervermani last decade
Sir,
I took one 1LM dose. I took the grain - smaller than a poppy seed I must say! - and dropped in 4oz. of water. I then took 1 teaspoon from that and mixed it into another 4oz of water. I took a teaspoon from that final mix. However, previously, as I said, I've taken so many doses of Nux. I completely stopped in September of last year. In January, I thought I'd try the LM as Nux at one time did wonders for my IBS. However, its done the opposite. Truth be told, I've tried other remedies with plenty of aggravations but none have lasted this long. Not sure what to make of it. Thanks again for the help.
 
thekind78 last decade
When you took this LM dose, were you symptom-free before the dose ?
 
sameervermani last decade
Sir,
Not really. I wasn't so much experiencing the ineffectual urging - it was there, but not to so great a degree. I was however, experiencing the retraction of abdomen/rectum and inactivity of rectum.
 
thekind78 last decade
Both Opium and Cocculus are anti-dotes to Nux with ineffectual urging for stool.

But the retraction , is more pointing to Opium.

Opium also has sleeplessness at 3am.

Hence Opium makes more sense, but if you cannot get Opium , then no harm in trying a single dose of Cocculus.

Sameer.
 
sameervermani last decade
Sir,
Thank you. I'm looking at Helios. Perhaps I'll order both.Does the fact that Anacardium ameliorated the symptoms - both the ineffectual urging and the retraction - help in anyway? Just curious. THanks.
 
thekind78 last decade
I do not see any need for Anacardium here. It just palliated , and only an anti-dote to Nux would work, as you are sure these are nux attacks.

Sameer.
 
sameervermani last decade
Sir,
Thank you. I will keep you posted.

Hello Mr. Vermani,
I wanted to let you know that today am feeling better in as much as the ineffectual urgings have subsided. However, the retraction of the rectum still remains. You know, I did take two 30c wet doses of Kali bi in September. Do you think by any chance it could be the culprit. If Mr. Murthy were to see my polypharmacy he would be at a loss for words! Thanks again for your replies and consideration.
 
thekind78 last decade
I think Opium should help with the symptoms which are left.

I do not think these are Kali-Bi symptoms.

Murthy, what do you think ?
 
sameervermani last decade
Sir,
I was reading up on Opium. It seems to match. The reverse peristalsis is exactly my ailment. Is it possible to permanently affect a proving onto the body? I am still at a loss as to why these Nux symptoms keep coming and coming.
 
thekind78 last decade
Go ahead with Opium 6C, and then we will know.
