Good Morning Dr. Sharma,
Thank you for all your questions and looking into this case. We have gone thru a lot with him without any or little success that we have now almost given up on him. I am answering your questions below. Please let me know if there is anything else you need for Shivan.

What are the health problems you have suffered just before and during pregnancy ? any gestation diabetes /

hypothyroidism ?

I had gestational diabetes during pregnacy and therefore I did not put on enough weight. I was under strict diet

control. So even though he was born full term, he only weighed 5lb 13oz. His weightgain was extremly slow from

beggining since he did not eat much from the beggining. He was crying a lot as infant.


Were you under tension/stress of any kind (physical/emotional) during pregnancy ? were you doing any yoga during

pregnancy ? Any depression during or just before becoming a pregnant ?
Any hepatitis or viral infection got your liver/intestines/uterus during or before pregnancy?

I was under lot of job related stress during pregnancy. most of it was more emotional rather than physical.
No yoga during pregnancy at all. Was just too busy with my high demanding job. No depression before pregnancy.

No viral or hepatitis infection at all during or before pregnancy since I was tested for both during pregnancy and

results were negative.




I hope you would've had blood tests done for the son before ; Found any B 12 , Folic Acid defeciency ?

Yes, we did do the blood work for Shivan before but no floic acid defeciency since I was taking folic acid during

pregnancy.


what kind of food gets his body irritated ?

Honestly I don't know. All I know is that egg does not go well with him. He gets cold when ever he eats just egg

product.... Like boiled egg, omlet etc... if the egg is in cake or anything else... he is ok.



Is he a vegetarian / eats fish/sea food / pork / beef /chicken /meat/ eggs ?

Mostly vegetarian. How ever occasionaly he eats chicken and very rarely fish. No other meat or eggs.



Please list all the homeo medicines tried with him;
I will list as much as I can remember and as many has I have in my homeokit given by other homeopath.
- Pulsatilla
- Phosphourous
- Calc Phos
- constitutional
- hypericum
- Tuberculinum

They won't give Alfalfa mother tincture without a doctor's prescription in USA
right ? stupid FDA rules ;
I can get Alfalfa mother tincuture from India if you recommend. let me know.


what other health problems your son has ?
No other health problems. Just sluggish and extremly poor appetite. Does not eat much. He does not sit down to

eat. When he was young, I used to run behind him to give him food and water but no help. That's why we had seen

doctors and homeopath. With homeopathic treatment, it worked for a week or so with him but after that back to

where we started. With him we have gone thru a lot.


how is his stool?
His stool used to be hard since he did not drink much of water or much of liquid. I just put him on pro-biotics

and now he goes little better than before. his temperment also has improved a bit. He is very emotional and angry

all the time.


color of stool ?
I don't know. He goes by him self. However I will monitor him and report it to you.


shape of stool?long narrow/short lumpy/long medium/chopped spinach/any other varieties?
I don't know. He goes by him self. However I will monitor him and report it to you.



how is he at academics?
He is good at academics... his teacher is very happy with him.


tell everything about his
mind;;
He is very emotional. Does not like social environment. He cries if we have to go to someplace. He doesn't want

to go to any place where there is lot of people of there is a crowd. He doesn't talk to people. When somebody asks

him questions, he hides behind me or my husband. He chews on everything. He Chews his shirt, bagpack, jacket

zipper.... I don't know why he does that.



is his hunger normal/excessive/very low/hungry at night?
He gets hungry just before he goes to sleep. His thurst is very low overall. if i don't ask him to drink water

thruout the day he will not drink at all.


Does he have this syndrom of his sister? take a bite to finish?
No he doesn't have symptoms like his sister. I think my son just doesn't eat at all. He will eat all his favorite

food no problem. Like cake and cookies and chocolates and Icecreams. but nothing healthy like fruit or daal or

chapati... he hates all the vegetables.



find any abdominal bloating before or after eating?
No bloating at all... he is like a stick.. extremely thin from head to toe.


any craving for salt/salt food?
no craving for salt food... just sweets... and lot of it...


how is his sleep? wakes after short naps?
he doesn't take a nap. He just sleeps thru the night. about 8-10 hours at night.


What about the physical strenght/stamina ;
his physical strengh is ok to good given that a amount of how little he eats. however he falls down frequently.
no serious injuries however he does fall quiet often.


Please list as past symptoms and current symptoms
Past symptoms:
Very cranky, angry, very emotional very attached to his father... social anxiety.... don't like people.
Current Symptoms:
he is improving in all these behavior little but not a whole of a lot.


also mention if there is any part of his body which is more thin than the rest ;
He is flat thin from head to toe.... he was always below the chart for his weight... he weighs about 32 lbs right

now... very very low...



which half is more thin?upper half/lower half ?
all the same...



which part looks like developed well according to age, if any?
Hard to tell


also mention the kid's fears ;
As I mentioned above.. he hates to be in social situation., Doesn;t like to be in crowd... he doens't like new

things... any new things or any little changes sends him in a stress...he cries and wears him self and me out...

---------------------
Thanks for all your help once again.

sorahamsha last decade
ok Dr. Sharma,
I will reply to your questions in couple of hours. I have to find all the information. I have it someplace.

Good night!
 
Needhelpinwghtgain last decade
Dr. Sharma,
Here is the answers to your questions. Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask me if you think of it.

You mentioned about some constitutional being administered to Shivan , can mention that name ? would be very much

useful ;
Ok I pulled out Rx and it says Constitutional is Pulsatilla 30c. 3 palletts 1x a week. I was also given Pulsatilla 1M and I am not sure which one I gave him. 30c which says in constitutional or Pulsatilla 1M.


when was Shivan given Pulsatilla and for what ? was he having this thirstlessness before taking Pulsatilla ? Was he

having this 'getting cold due to egg' before taking Pulsatilla? Mention the year and age when Pulsatilla was

administered to Shivan ;;;;;;;

pulsatilla was given to him based on questions I was asked by homeopath that time. It was given to him in Dec

2005- Jan 2006. He was born in March 2003 so he would be close to 3 years that time.

He was also given Intercurrent 3 palletts 1x month for his appetite.
His thirstlessness was before taking pulsatilla yes.
yes, he has been getting cold from taking egg long before taking Pulsatilla.

Other homeopathic med were given in Rx were

Aconite 30c - 3 pallets 3x a day if he gets sick (Becasue everytime he got fever or cold, he would loose his weight by few pounds in 2 days. Which we didn't wnat to happen since he was low weight to begin with.

Ars Aub? (Sorry can't read what it says in Rx) but he never took it anyways 3 palletts 3 x day in case of weakness, food poisioning or lost of appetite due to it)


What job were you doing when you were pregnant? Public Relations / Human Resource Management ?
No my job did not involve public at all. However it was downturn in economy when all the jobs were getting

oursourced to India so stress was due to that.



Are there any skin folds/wrinles on Shivan's face or body?
No wrikles on skin folds on his face or body. He did have skin folds and wrinkes when he was born.


Does Shivan like any thing which is sweet or just those chocolates and other pastry items ? what about cold drinks?

Wants tea/coffee ?
No Shivan doesn't like all sweets. Just chocolates and pastries that contains chocolates. Not all pastries or all

Ice-creams. Only chocolates.
No cold drinks. He hates cold water... he doesn't like even luke warm shower or he will not step in outdoor

swimming pool. He wants hot water. No he doesn't want tea or coffee. he drinks Milk but warm milk.



Did you observe any mild swelling kind of look at his throat ? Did you test Shivan for any thyroid trouble ?
No swelling of any kind around his throat. No thyroid at all.

Were you taking any thyroxin or iodin supplements during pregnancy ?
No not at all.


How does Shivan react when he is consoled by somebody during his emotional/weeping/sad states ?
he doesn't get consoled easily. He screams and cries out loud. It's hard to calm him down after his outburst.


Does Shivan fear darkness ?
A little bit. He will not go anyplace dark by him self. but sometime when we insist, he will turn the light on and

go.

Generally, Does Shivan like to be alone ?
No he doesn't like to be alone at all. He has to be with someone all the time. all though I think he is overcoming
that. but not by choice.

How is Shivan's behavior with other children in the school?
He is very shy and reserved. but after lot of coaching from my husband and me, he is making an effort to talk to

other children. Once he gets to know kids... he will be a big chatter box :-)


Observe his eye pupils for constant motion ;
No his pupils are fine...

Mention the respiratory problems/mumps/sub maxillary glands problmes if anY (past and present);;;;
No respiratory problems at all.
---------------------

Thanks a lot for your time and energy for this.

good night!
 
Needhelpinwghtgain last decade
Dr. Sharma,
I should also mentioned that he grinds his teeth very much at night. It is so loud that we can hear him in another room at night.

Update on his stool: yesterday it was yellow and medium in length..
 
Needhelpinwghtgain last decade
Good Afternoon and Good Midnight Mrs.Wghtgain;;

Well Shivan has symptoms which are distributed among

Pulsatilla(egg,thirst etc stuff),

Silicea(underwght,warm liking and extended pulsatilla stuff)

and

Lycopodium (mind in every aspect, underwght, cold hating warm liking, sweet etc.)


Since mind is to be considered first, in a non-emergency situation, first preference would be Lycopodium ;;;;


Since a chronic state , Lycopodium 1M is more suited , but I think we should give a chance for 30 c first ;;;;;

]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]
Just give Shivan, a single dose of Lycopodium 30 c ; dose is 2 pills on tongue to be melt like candy ;; clean the tongue with cleaner before the dose; don't brush , just clean ; Shivan should not eat any chocolate on the day of the dose;;
]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]


get Silicea 6x tablets ;;read the children dose on the label and give thrice daily ; 30 minutes gap between and after the dose;; i repeat silicea 6x ( not 6c );

Silicea in 6x works as a pallative tonic , makes food absoption to the body ;;

]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]
Shivan should not eat all kinds of non-veg (including eggs,fish,sea food,meat,chicken,beef etc) ;;not even cakes containing eggs ;;;;This has to maintained for some days till my consent ;;

You can give him occassional doses of B12 and Folic Acid etc . to supplement ;
]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]

Buy

Aswagandha powder (not extract)

and

Ginseng powder (not extract)

and

Soya (vegetarian) Lecithin (any form or extract)


mix little quantities of above three into warm milk , you can add some health drink/chocolate powder to taste and make Shivan drink it twice daily ;; we'd see the dose when we get to read the container lables ; you can order the above three from herbal/health food websites;;
]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]


One more thing, Shivan is going to get out of the current state anyway , without medication at all ; Only matters is when it will be? If more than couple of current symptoms stay into puberty, they may create a real mess ;;
That would be the hard way to get free ;; Since we prefer the soft way, we prefer homeopathy, right?
 
sorahamsha last decade
One more thing, no other medicine should be given to Shivan on the day of the dose ;


Next Lyco dose would be on Sunday ;;;

On sunday, take a small glass container with about 20 ml of water (make sure that the glass container doesn't stink of the dish wash soap, better buy a new one )

put the water filled glass container in SUN ;; charge it with Sun rays for a minimum of one hour and a maximum of 2 hours (continuous charging is not required), ;;; If not possible , you can even charge for 10 minutes only ;;

then take the container into the shade and put 3 pills into it , wait for 10 minutes and stir to dissolve;;; Give 2 teaspoonfulls as a dose to Shivan ;; No need to give the dose immediately after preparing the solution, you can give it before night falls;
]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]


So usual Lyco 30 c dose today and the next dose, the SUN dose on Sunday (day time only)

]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]
 
sorahamsha last decade
The chocolate eating restriction is only for Lycopodium doses ;;

But slowly decrease the availability of chocolate to Shivan, slowly but very slowly ;
 
sorahamsha last decade
Oh , add one more thing to that herbal list :

alfalfa powder (not extract)

you may get them at the below website :

http://www.herbco.com/c-392-herbal-information.aspx
 
sorahamsha last decade
that soya lecithin can be found at the below site or any other you find easier:

http://www.bizrate.com/vitamins_nutrition/products__keyword-...
 
sorahamsha last decade
Although you can get mother tincures of Alfalfa ,Ginseng,Aswagandha and Lecithin from India , I was prefering herbal powders because mother tinctures contain alcohol(60% to 80%)and for the 4 medicines, it is too much ;;


Of course Soya Lecithin is an extract, but that's how it's prepared;

The other ones Alfalfa,Ginseng and Aswagandha are powdered roots or leaf (not extracts);I was specific about them because non-cooked herbs hold more vital force(cosmos charge from universe) than cooked ones ; Same case with fruits and vegetables salads ;Vital force supply is the key for a homeo medicine to work ;
But all the 4 items are to be given to Shivan lesser than the dose prescribed on the labels, since raw food may be a bit heavy for chocolate eater ;
 
sorahamsha last decade
I was prescribing this above:

hat soya lecithin can be found at the below site or any other you find easier:

http://www.bizrate.com/vitamins_nutrition/products__keyword-....

When I again rechecked, I saw some cautions that not to be consumed by children , info about soya allergy etc. Hence I take this out of my prescription. Again the FDA ;;


Homeopathically, 1 or 2 grains is a standard dose for children(where as the US companies are printing 8 grains as minimum consumable quantity for adults and children should not consume); People have used here in India , may be allergies are very high in US ;;;


So let's be tension free ;;

The other three Alfalfa powder, Ginseng and Aswagandha are OK Ok OK ;;;;
 
sorahamsha last decade
oh Thanks Dr Sharma for your eval for my son.

I have Lyco 30c and I can give him but his birthday is on Monday and we are going to celebrate in School so he is going to eat chocolate cake.. (Which was on his wish list 6 months ago). So may be we can wait till than? Also is is going to cause aggravation due to Lyco in him? Do you think?

I have Silicea 6x in my homeokit so I can give that to him. No need to order.

Regarding Ashwagantha and all other powder, we have tried that in a past... he hates it so much. I have disguised in milk shake and juice etc... but he somehow spots it...

I had alfalfa tincture as well but that thing smells awful. there was no way I can disguise that in juice or water at all.

Is there any thing we can do? I can no longer force him to eat or drink anything. He cries and cries and throws up so that is not the approach I would like to take.

Thanks again for all your research on medicine and sending me websites... I sincerely do appriciate that.

Will wait for your response regarding Lyco. I can give him today if you like. Also I do have Lyco 200c.
 
Needhelpinwghtgain last decade
oh one more thing... just lyco and Silicea for now right? no pulsatilla correct?
 
Needhelpinwghtgain last decade
yreh
 
sorahamsha last decade
only lyco 30 and silicea 6x
 
sorahamsha last decade
I was specific about powders of ALfalfa and Ginseng and Aswagandha too ;;;

not the mother tinctures ;
 
sorahamsha last decade
herbal powders of
Aswagandha , Ginseng and Alfalfa

It's not the quantity that matters , you can try again with a minute quantity (what they call it in Hindi, 'Chutkee Bhar'? ) , along with chocolate/health drink powder in warm milk ;; can give a try? can you?


not the mother tincture ;;;


he can take cakes very seldom but not on the day of the dose ; also don't let Shivan eat any cake on Sunday ;
 
sorahamsha last decade
I'm clear not to force him ;;
Just try with those ' fraction of tip of finger' quantities ;;;
 
sorahamsha last decade
Ok got it. Will give Lyco today and will start Silicea from tomorrow. So when I give him another dose on Sunday no Silicea on sunday correct?

Also no chicken, egg or any meat till you suggest correct?

Ok will do that. Will also get the powder as well from India. I think we do get ginseng and alfala powder as well at health store just have to get aaswagantha.

Thanks a lot. Wishing you a good night. Will report after dose of Lyco...
 
Needhelpinwghtgain last decade
no restriction of chocolates with silicea 6x;


and


there are no side effects with chcolates or eggs or non-veg concerning Lyco or silicea 6x ;

concerning homeopathic aggravation of Lycopodium 30 , the SUN dose may cause some, but that would help a thrust ;;;


My past experiences with Lyco 200 are most of the times aggravated conditions ; Where as Lycopodium 1M was calm going ;
 
sorahamsha last decade
One dose of Lyco is given to Shivan just now after tounge cleaning.
Now we wait for aggravation?
 
Needhelpinwghtgain last decade
so should i get lyco 1M from india? or no need till we evaluate 30c's effect?
