Homeopathy for internet or screen addiction 1


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Internet addiction

Hi! Please help with these problems!
I am a 32 years old female. I have gone to a homeopath, but no longer can afford treatment.
We did some progress for anxiety with Arsenicum Album, but there is still mild unexplained anxiety daily, mostly in the heart region with stalling of breath - as when you hold your breath to listen to something.
But most important is the Internet addicion for which I am neglecting other things. My whole life is such a mess and so many things need attention, yet I am unable to motivate myself or be disciplinned to do them.
I read about Sulphur and that type being neglectful of themselves for 'philosophical pursuit'. I guess my Internet addiction could be that.
Also there is recalling past grievances and bitternes toward my boyfriend.
Please suggest a remedy!
Thank you!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Ignita 200 take three doses:

- morning, evening and again next morning, then stop.

It is the specific med for a broken love affair.

Ignatia is for acute grief.Natrum muriaticum is the drug for chronic grief.When you give natrum mur,then acute stage may come.Then you can try ignatia.
Zahid)2 last decade
If grief is caused due to a broken love affair..then Ignatia is the answer.

Natrum Mur is for grief, disappointment in life due to other causes such as family discord, office politics, buisness loss, examination failure etc.

Natrum Mur patients have suppressed anger as well and once in a while will get into a rage. They also have history of constipation.

Ignatia patient gets in to a mode of silent brooding and has frequent changable moods.
Also meloncholic, sad and tearful.......this causes slipping up on achievement of day to day activiites and long term goals of life.

Another distiction between the sympotoms of the two meds:

Ignatia : headache in a small spot like a nail being driven in the head.

Natrum Mur : bursting headache all over the head ...like small hammers tapping the head all over.

Hi doctors!
Thank you for the answers! The disappointment comes mostly from what our relationship has gone through. I feel like 'he has done this trauma to me'. Also, despite love, he does not want to commit to marriage becuase of my low achieving and that makes me more disapointed and also angry.
But the low achieving and sort of 'frittering time away' has been there since childhood. It just seems I always find something else to occupy myself and waste time instead of going after what I dream about!
Does this help in making a more clear diagnosis?

Hi !

Looks like you are choosing goals that are not in line with your in built talent.

There are tests that determine your strengths with regard to choice of vocation. Make friends with an HR guy or gal and he / she will tell you more about it. Or go to some sites that have such info.

When you choose a vocation that is in line with your talents ....enthusiasm for the work flows on its own...and the body moves at a quick pace to achieve the targets that you set for your self.

Soon people begin to admire your work ...that enhances your enthusiasm and raises it to the next higher level....called a paradym shift in the quality of life that you are undergoing.

If you have child hood emotional blocks coming in the way of your work and enjoyment of life...you need to go to Landmark Forum (read more about it on their website).

Yesterday is History,
Tomorrow is a Mystery
Today is a Gift of God !!

Thanks Pankaj!
Well, it just seems like there is no motivation for me to succeed! There is a desire, but when it comes to doing the daily things that would lead me there... nothing. I guess it's laziness.
Although the Landmark site is for teens I guess I could benefit from it too.
I just hopes some homeopathy could help as well....

Take Ignatia as suggested earlier.

48 hours after the last dose of Ignatia, start with Nux Vomica 200 ...take two doses every day:

1. around 6 pm
2. next between 8 and 9 pm

keep 1/2 hour gap between dinner / snack and taking the med.

continue Nux Vom for a week

Let me know the response after the complete cycle of meds has been taken.

Pl. note Ignatia also has the capacity to correct the problems associated with the menses cycle.

I have seen some of your earlier posts as well on different threads..under your name.
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Hi Pankaj!
Thanks for the advice and also remembering my posts.
I will try to get the remedies.
My only concern is the frequent repetitions.
I know I usually react very strongly to remedies.
I know that classic homeopathy is based on single dose and then waiting for at least 2 weeks. Because if I get a reaction then we won't know from which remedy that is.
Can you explain why do you suggest this frequent dosing? I have been taking homeopathy for years, but only taking the low potencies for as long as a week.
cicka last decade
Then keep trying single doses and never get well !!
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Ignatia and nux vom are inimicals and should not be given one after the other in such a mechanical manner.
faustian last decade
Hi Faustian!
What are inimicals?
And Pankaj, why the strange answer?! Why would you not explain what is the difference between single dosing and repetition if you believe in it?
We all want to get well here, but I'm sure everyone will agree that it's good to be certain and even question things if we're putting our health on the line!
cicka last decade
Dear pankaj,
I am very surprized that you have choosen ignatia and nuxvom which are inimical.Combination therapy sometimes usefull for chronic diseases.But what kind of drugs have you choosen?
Dear patient,you can try phosphorus 200c,3doses at 6hourly interval on a single day.Then wait for 15 days.Nothing should be administer 1hour before and after taking the drug.Avoid tea,coffe,perfumes while taking drugs.
Zahid)2 last decade
Hi Cicka

certain remedies in homeopathy do not follow each other well and have the potential to cause harm such remedies are known as inimical or antagonistic. examples: ignatia and nux vomica, rhus tox and Apis, causticum and phosphorus, sepia and lachesis.

you can see the link below for some of them.


As for your case, I suggest you get Sameer's help. He is by far the best on this forum and really the only one who knows what he is talking about.you can try and catch is attention on this thread or start a new one.

I am very surprized that you have choosen ignatia and nuxvom which are inimical.
Dear Zahid,
That is why the 48 hour gap between the two.

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
Dear Zahid,
For Phosphorus to be the remedy...there has to be frequent coughs and colds, phlegm stained with blood, outbursts of anger, fear of darkness, skin burning etc. etc.

I donot see any of those symptoms here.

This is more a case of constant brooding over a broken love affair.

Pankaj Varma
PANKAJ VARMA last decade
48 hours gap is sufficient to destroy the effect of Ignatia.It is not the way of prescribing.However,What do you know the indication of phosphorus?just frequent cough,cold,phlegm stained with blood,outburst of anger,fear of darkness,skin burning etc.There are lots of indication of phosphorus.In this case,there is a strong indication of phosphorus:Lack of motivation,weariness of life,mentally and physically drained,anxiety,irritability,sinking feeling,light headedness,loss of consciousness,chronic issue,pressure in the head,worst before eating,Eating ameliorates the condition,hot,humid weather makes patient worse,anxious,suspicious,easily offended,lazy,very sensitive to external stimuli like light,noise,smell,apathetic feeling as a result of disappointed love,prefer solitude,sweet mostly in sleep probably that causes burning sensation,cancer,anxiety running in family,very tall,very slim,dark hair,fair complexion,brown burning itching discharge from the time of ovulation etc.
All the above complaints of the patient are best suited to phosphorus.I also believe that this is a case of constant brooding over a broken love affair and phosphorus have strong affinity for that purpose.

Hi Cicka,
Pl. run your symptoms on the ABC Homeopathy Remedy Finder and let us know the result. (the three meds that get the highest percentages).

That will help to resolve your case better.

Dear friends, I didn't follow the outcome of this post to the end. But I want to say, I took Phosphorus 200 c on Nov. 15. I think I have done another remedy search and since I had Phosphorus at home I tried it.
I did really well on it! It is really a great remedy for chest oppression and anxiety. Even my sleep got really good after that.
It's not like I didn't have emotional problems afterward, but there wasn't that 'craziness', or at least I can't really remember anything.
Strangely, I tried taking this remedy 6 weeks ago and it did nothing for me this time! So homeopathy is really unpredictable and if one isn't in the particular 'situation' even if it is just slightly off, it won't work. I think Phosphorus has done it's job with me and now it won't work again...
