Thanks a lot Dr. Saini :)

Just want to confirm that I did only take the 3 doses of Larachesis. I will report in a week as to any changes or developments with Larachesis 200c on hand.
PDXgirl3 last decade
Great :)

Hi Sameer,
When purchasing the 200c Lachesis, should I choose a unit dose or 80 pellets?
PDXgirl3 last decade
Unit dose is fine, as we will not repeat it any time in the near future, but if cost is not an issue , you can buy 80 pellets.

Hi Sameer,
I just wanted to check-in with a symptom that appeared today. I picked up a small decaf coffee at lunch and within five mins of drinking it, I had a horrible pain in my chest where my heart is. I have never had this type of reaction to coffee before and drink it very rarely. But, the pain was excruciating and it was hard to breathe. It felt like someone was twisting and wrenching my heart and my chest felt very heavy. I have stopped drinking the coffee and switched to water. Any thoughts?

Physical symptoms can arise during treatment. Keep on waiting, this will go away by itself.

Please update as planned.
sameervermani last decade
Hi Sameer,
Hope all is well with you. I am checking in as planned a week later. My face has improved so greatly and I have not had a single bump appear since taking the Lachesis! I am feeling more like myself again and more confidant. It is not quite as painful to sit with my legs crossed, but I do still get a pinching feeling where the painful veins occur on the outside of my thighs.

I don't feel so grief stricken and sad all the time. I have been feeling more inclined to speak my mind, but I still have a barrier that seems to keep me from doing this and I continue to bottle it up inside. Although I am not feeling depressed and lonely, I am feeling aggravated by others, such as my boss' negative approach to my staying late at work and my mom's constant need to ridicule beliefs that she's know I support and make negative remarks about my late-father. These are things I wish I could stand my ground on, but I still seem to avoid the confrontation which causes the issues/feelings to build up inside and make me aggravated or anxious.

Also, my intense craving for sugar has dissipated, but now I seem to be craving fat. I ate a bunch of junk food/fast food over the last few days that I had sworn I would not eat a few years ago. Normally I am very conscious about my health and what I consume, but I couldn't seem to withstand the cravings and gave in.

Hi PDXGirl,

I am doing good thanks. And, good to know about your improvements as well.

Please wait for 6 more days, and after that do the following:

Dissolve 2 pellets of Lachesis 200c in 120 ml spring water, and take one tablespoon from there JUST ONCE. This is not to be repeated.

Make sure to follow the restrictions as with the earlier prescription.

Update me in 10 days after the dose.

Hi Sameer!
I am checking in as planned 10 days after taking the 200c Lachesis. I want to say that I am incredibly thankful for your help and feel like I have definitely improved through the course of the remedy. I have come to terms with a lot of the feelings related to the loss of my dad and don't find myself breaking down in tears lately. I feel generally at peace with my job and other things that seemed to irriate me so easily before. The cystic acne has almost completely gone away and I am able to eat the foods I had a reaction to previously. I am finding that I now only have the cystic acne reaction with caffeine. No matter how small the dose (white tea, green tea, chai, decaf coffee), I develop the blood-filled postules. Do you think this is something I will just have to live with?

But, interestingly enough during the course of the remedy and the great improvements I have seen, some issues if my life have become clearer. I am realizing that the grief that has continued to impact me seems to be triggered by my mother. She seems gripped by an unresolved anger towards my dad and often makes painful remarks about him nearly every day. Then, during special occasions when our family gets together, I can't help but think about missing my dad. My mom's negative remarks only seem to make matters more painful.

Over the last few weeks while taking the remedy, I feel like I am having a harder time sitting quietly by while my mom says these hurtful things. I have always been the type to avoid confrontation at all cost. But lately, I have felt like I can not just sit by and let her cause this pain. I have an overwhelming urge to speak to her about how she is making me feel, but I am afraid of the consequences. Although it may just be in my head, I really feel like I feel more confident in myself and more able to be who I am and own my feelings. This all seems to make me feel much happier to! But, I feel like I'm confronting these deep-rooted issues with my mom now and I'm not sure how to get a handle on it. The last three times I have spent time with her during the last 3 weeks, I come home with a terrible migraine.

Do you feel like this is anything a remedy could help with?
PDXgirl3 last decade
I have already advised you that you need a medicine to deal with your pent up anger and a lot of your symptoms correspond with the need for Phosphorus.

PANKAJ VARMA last decade
you may try nux 30 once per day for 6 days.
guru195 last decade
Dear PDXGirl,

In view of the substantial improvements , we must wait right now.

Let the Lachesis do its job right now, and when some other layer comes up, we will tackle it with another remedy. But right now, we must wait as another picture has not yet emerged fully.

And, I hope by now, you know which posts to ignore in a forum like setting :)

Update me in another 10 days, as I feel the response to Lachesis 200 has not stopped yet.

sameervermani last decade
Hi Pankaj,
I think you are right. :) It has become much more apparent the last few weeks that I'm holding a lot of anger inside. I think I confused this with sadness before. But, now I feel like I am going to burst with all these feelings. I would really like to try the Phosphorus, what dose/instructions would you recommend?
PDXgirl3 last decade
And, I want to repeat if you take the Phosphorus right now, I will not be able to offer any further help, as it is not my suggestion and it is not yet time to take any remedy right now.
sameervermani last decade
Hi Sameer,
I feel very confused right now. I am having a hard time maintaining these feelings that are coming up right now and am afraid at any moment I might burst and say awful things to someone I love. All that I can think about it is the pain and hurt my mom has/is causing me and my sister and that I need it to stop. I feel that I cannot ignore it any longer and must tell her, but I am afraid of how it will come out. I have thought about writing a letter because I am afraid the situation will turn irrepairable if I confront her in person. I spent the whole night crying and woke up to work today with a horrible cold. I feel like I am breaking down and don't know how to handle this.
PDXgirl3 last decade
Just take a dose of Phosphorus 200 in the morning and repeat again on the following morning (after 24 hours ) ...then wait for results.

You could keep noticing benefits for over 7 days.

Will be watching this thread.

Dear PDXgirl,

I understand what you are saying, but right now we must wait as one hasty prescription will derail the cure.

Please keep waiting, and you can update me in 5 days.

sameervermani last decade
Just for curiosity, do you have any obsession like checking the doors to see if it's locked, hand-washing, cleanliness, etc. ?
raphaeloliveira last decade
Hi Raphael,
No, I'm not usually compulsive in that way, but thanks for inquiring.

To Pankaj and Sameer,
I do not want to mess up any improvements I may continue to see from the Lachesis. Would it really cause problems if I took the Phosphorus? I feel torn with the homeopathy right now and it only seems to add to how torn I feel in my personal life as well.
PDXgirl3 last decade
Dear PDXgirl,

First of all , it is too soon to be taking any remedy right now as the 200c potency of a remedy which is giving substantial benefit was given just 10 days ago.

Secondly, Phosphorus is a not a remedy for suppressed anger to begin with, hence it is not the remedy which is coming out.

And yes, if you take Phos right now, it will indeed mess up with the response to Lachesis.

The best thing would be to wait for a week or so, and then analyze the symptoms that remain at that time.

Although you are free to follow anyone's advice but it would serve you well if you did a bit of research about prescribing methods of every person that is throwing remedies at you.

sameervermani last decade
I think ...would be a good idea for you to run your symptoms on the ABC Remedy Finder....then post the result here.

That will help to clear the confusion.

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
I am going to continue letting the Lachesis remedy run is course and will report back in a week with any symptoms that may be appearing at that time. Thanks for your guidance. :)
PDXgirl3 last decade
Hi there,
Although I was going to wait a week to update again, I felt I needed to share some issues that are going on right now.

My craving for sugar has increased greatly, but when I eat anything containing it I immediately get nauseaus and my eyes become very blurry. They feel like they are covered in a film that does not go away no matter how much I rub or wipe. It makes it very difficult to do my work on the computer and is disorienting. Knowing these reactions, I try to avoid sugar but the cravings seem to take over, especially when I see sweets nearby. I am normally very slender and petite, but over the last week I have gained noticeable weight around my midsection (thighs, hips, bottom) and upper portion of my arms. Despite exercising, it only seems to get worse.

Also, the same gripping pain in my chest over my heart that appeared when drinking coffee shortly following the Lachesis remedy now appears when I exercise/jog. It is a wrenching pain that makes it difficult to breathe. It is relieved if I hold my breath and sit very still. I got the same pain at work a couple of days ago when I quickly reached my left arm across my chest to the right to grab something. It was an awful pain and I couldn't breathe for nearly 30 seconds. I had to hold my arm in the same position because whenever I tried to move it back, the pain got worse. It finally went away after about 15 mins.

The last couple of days, the varicose pain in my thighs has also come back and is worse on the outside portion of my left thigh.

Please advise. Thank you!

Possibly the need for Argentum Nitricum.

However, you should post symptoms on ABC Remedy Finder and then post the result here....for us to analyse.

Otherwise, you are going in circles.
