Hyperacidity... I think

Hi I need help with hyperacidity. I am 28 white female.. 130 lbs.
I thought I had parasites from going out of the country and I started taking black walnut and wormwood tincture for 2 weeks on and 1 week off for several months.
Then all of a sudden I started getting horrible upper middle abdominal pains that would get worse and worse until I was doubled over in pain and nausea. I have every test and even ct scan and the doctors said it's just too much acid and gave me acid reducers but those caused gas pains under my ribs. Ginger helps the stomachaches but they always come back. I looked up and found out that wormwood herb can cause hyperacidity.

Please tell me what homeopathy can help restore balance to the acidity levels of my stomach. I was completely normal before taking the wormwood except for chronic constipation which I've always had.

I notice the pain is worse on an empty stomach and if I suck a candy or chew gum. I guess that promotes more acid in the stomach.

Please help. thanks

I would like to get help for adrenal fatigue, and neurocardiogenic syncope. I was diagnosed at age 20.

Had a saliva test and shown to have adrenal fatigue too. I dont know if adrenal fatigure is a root cause of the neurocardiogenic syncope or not. But both problems have similar symptoms so they are related somehow.

ALso hope something could help my nervousness, panic attacks, anxiety. I think this is somehow related to my other problems too...
Thanks for your help.

dear,
pls take one dose of Lycopodium 10M OF 2 DROPS AND WAIT for a month and report me...
dr.deoshlok sharma
 
deoshlok last decade
thanks for your reply... I am looking to order lycopodium 10m on this website .. but they only have pellets that are 10M... the liquid does not have 10 M. So can I take pellets, and how many?

Also, along with helping digestion, will the lyco help the fatigue and other problems, or will I have to take a different remedy later for those problems? Thanks!
 
bethsol last decade
Please note that 10M is an extremely high potency to start a case, and is laden with a chance of horrible aggravations.

Please do your research before you follow any prescriptions.

Good luck
Sameer
 
sameervermani last decade
Dr Sameer, you replied and said that lyco 10 M is too high. Please take a look at my case and tell me what you suggest. I mostly want to get help for my adrenal fatigue, extreme fatigue, inability for stand long for feeling faint, anxiety/panic attacks and digestion issues like hyperacidity and constipation.

Let me know what other questions I need to answer.... thanks!
 
bethsol last decade
in chronic case always require high potency, in single dose.. try . I know it is very micro wise it is better than low potency.. low potency medicine is having more medicinal substance than higher potency..in homoeopathy
dr.deoshlok sharma
 
deoshlok last decade
Dr Sharma, I emailed you more info about me. I wanted you to know also , Im very sensitive to taking things, so Im scared to take such a high dose. My heart tends to race fast on anything I take, vitamins, herbs.
I was also reading other cases and saw where Lyco 1M helped someone with anxiety problems but when they took Lyco 10M they got alot of aggravations and they had to get antidote because of it. Do you think Lyco 1M would work for me?

Please let me know...
