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 ?

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.

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.

Hmm... In light of the new information, I am more inclined towards


taken similar to the procedure described above.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
