Dr. Sameer, please help my daughter find her constitution and stabilize.

My daughter has several issues. She lately is very congested (throat/nose and ears),only white stuff coming out now. She also has eczema behind her neck and she scrathches there quite a bit. She has eczema on inner elbows but not anymore . She cares alot about what others think, has clammy/sweaty hands and feet. Her feet get cold sometines. She gets dazed/absentminded and forgets when she has told me something. Otherwise she gets good marks but does not have common sense. She has trouble problem solving in math. She gets upset when she sees her parents fight. She is sensitive and cares for others. As a young child, after laughing or sometimes eating she used to get a lot of hiccups. Please help me find her constitution. You are the best out there. Help cure nervousness/hands&feet and eczema and allergies.

Hi jk ,

Please talk about her fears,anxieties and food cravings/aversions as well.
sameervermani last decade
HI, Sorry for the delay. I only have access to computer on certain days.

My daughter is a polite , well behaved girl, even as a child. She never shouted if she wanted anything or threw tantrums, even as a little girl. She would sometimes ask 2-3 times if she really wanted something and if we said no that would be it. I have to push her to try new things. She gets good marks but she lacks deep understanding. When she gets mad at someone she cannot express her self freely. She has gotten better in telling her friends if she is upset.

Her diet has changed as we have tried to help her eczeema and allergies. She likes pizza and pasta and anything with paneer in sauce. She likes omelettes now too. I know some docs don't recommend this but she can tolerate thes foods so we feel she should enjoy them/and she does enjoy. She generally likes muffins and cakes too but she cannot have them from outside since she has allergies.

She has a lot of mucus in her throat and sinus and she talks with a groggy voice and has to clear many times. She is kind to other people and her family.

She has clammy feet and hands

She tries her best at school or anything she does but she gets discourage or gives up when she cannot do it and does not enjoy doing it then. We have to push her. She does not have the strenth to do things better that she is not good at from within.

Her parents fight and even during pregnancy her mom did not eat well and was not happy.

Bless you

Can you please describe her response to music ?

Also, does she have any hobbies ?

Would you describe her temperament as mild and yielding ?
sameervermani last decade
How old is she ?
sameervermani last decade
She likes listening to music and dancing to it. But I don't think she loves cz when we go on trips she has to be reminded to take her ipod and then she listens to it. She remembers words and tunes to songs very well. As a baby she hiccups quite a bit and she still does it today but not so much. Esp. after laughing as a baby, she would hiccup. Her hiccups lasts for hours and once she has it she will continue until next morn.

She likes to watch tv and movies and talk on the phone with her friends. She is 12. Other hobbies such as playing piano or drawing (which she has learned to do better) she has to be asked to practice.

She will not go that extra step unless she is asked. Eg. when asked for more 'sabji' she will bring the pot to you, but not serve on the plate unless she is asked. I don't think it comes natural to her. She is nice to other people but caring for them is not.

She doesn't cry during movies but does get scared during them.

Her eyes are sensitive. She had rashes on them and gets rashes on eyes if she eats 'fenugreek'

She used to get many stomach aches and headaches. She still gets a few headaches.

Hi, I know you're busy. want to add that she has a few patches of vitiligo.

Mom has swollen knees and frequent sinus concerns and hayfever.
Father has high bp &cholesterol, few kidney stones and weak intestines

Please talk more about this 'She cares alot about what others think'

Does it mean that she is sensitive to what others say about her ? sensitive to criticism or reprimand ?
sameervermani last decade
She does care about what people think . She doesn't want people to think that she is a mean person and this is why she hates being rude to anyone. If she does something that will make the person think negative of her, then she will feel v. guilty. She feels guilty easily , at the slightest thing. Her guilty concsience gets stronger from no where at times.

She's senstive to criticism. Not as much as she was when she was younger but she still doesn't like it when we criticize her school work. She knows her weaknesses now and she is better with this.

She is fairly honest

Hi ,

3 doses of Silicea 30c, equally spaced by 30 minutes for 1 single day ONLY.

Dissolve 2 pellets of Silicea 30c in a 250 ml spring water bottle. You can turn the bottle upside down a few times for the pellets to spread after dissolving.

1 teaspoon from here using a disposable spoon is 1 dose.

Let me know in 10 days after this.

1/. Nothing should enter the mouth for 40 minutes prior to, or after taking the remedy.
2/. Do not touch the tablets (in your case the liquid) with your hands, tip them into the cap of the container they came in and then into the water .
3/. Avoid coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks and large amounts of chocolate, except where this would cause a drastic change in consumption
4/. Avoid wearing perfume/aftershave, or exposure to anything with a strong smell while under treatment. This includes any and all essential oils, and incense.
5/. Avoid the consumption of excessively spicey foods
6/. The use of medicinal herbs, either as 'teas' or supplements should be AVOIDED during Homoeopathic treatment, as should the use of over the counter medication, unless this has been recommended by an MD.
7/. Nothing of a medicinal nature should be applied to the skin

Hi,just wanted to know if this will help her mucus in her throat cz thick white phlegm comes out and she has to clear throat often. ( this is from cold which she had few mnths back). The mucus stays v. long after her cold is gone now. This has been going on for past 2 years.

She did take Silicea 30 two years back by homepath in India (just one single does, then we had to monitor her) . We saw no change and then he recommended Ars. Alb but in liquid form but we could never receive from India bcz customs blocked it and then he was unable to keep up comunications.So should we still procure Silicea and if so what time is best to give (am/pm)? Do you sense any Ars or Phosporus taint in her?

already have Silicea 30 on hand from 2 years back. is it ok or should I buy new one?

Thanks a bunch:)God bless:)
j.k.usa last decade
Just to clarify , what has been going on for past 2 years is her mucus/phlegm lingering with thick mucus for months and months

j.k.usa last decade

So, there was absolutely no change from Silicea in her symptoms, and her problems were the same at that time ?
sameervermani last decade

Sorry it took so long to respond. Her problems I think were more severe two years ago and I don't think the Silicea made much change atleast it wasn't any visible changes. She actually didn't have that much mucus/phlegm before. However she had more food restrictions before and rashes were on her face also.
Rashes from face are gone now. One thing, I forgot to mention is that her knees crack sometimes when bending. This was there 2 years ago also. She also sweats and is itchy near the armpit area.

Sincere thanks for all your time.

Hi ,

Please give her 3 doses of Calcarea Carb 30 in the manner described above.

Report in 10 days.
sameervermani last decade
Hi, I'll get it Tuesday. Just wondering what made you choose Calc carb over Silicea and I'm sort of intrigued by the fact that both you and this doc in India chose Silicea and am willing to try that as well as the Doc in India was v. reputable and I value your opinion as well. So please if there is something I can read I'll do that too but in the meantime I'm going to the city on Tues and will be getting the med. (Boiron brand okay?)
j.k.usa last decade
Yes, please buy both Silicea and Calcarea Carb 30c, Borion is ok.

Calcarea and Silicea can be a bit hard to differentiate in the tubercular case, with the major difference being that Silicea is much more prone to a mild/yielding temperament and Calcarea Carb is more of a stubborn nature.

The heat in Calc is there with desire to uncover whereas the heat in Sil is there with an aversion to uncover.

Oversensitiveness to pain is rarely found in Calc and is more often found in Silicea.

Calc is worse in cold,wet weather. Silicea is worse in cold,dry air.
sameervermani last decade
She is more prone to mild/yielding temperment vs. stubborn nature. So just want to verigy, should I give Calc CArb or Silicea.and also wanted to know if better at am or pm. Thanks and God Bless:)
j.k.usa last decade
I would give Silicea a go first, anytime is fine.

Follow the dosing procedure above with Silica 30c.
