Good

Let me now tell you why I prescribed Ignatia.

Every remedy in our Materia Medica has some Red-line symptoms, some peculiarities about them that differentiate them from all other medicines that we know of. It is incumbent for the physician to use the art of Homoeopathy to find the right remedy out of the idiosyncratic, peculiar details that appear in the description of the problems faced by the patient. Had you not explained your problems in such detail, it would never have been possible to zero down on the remedy prepared out of St. Ignatius Beans.

But before I get down to the business of spitting hairs that every homeopath is destined to do all his life, , let me take care of your objections.

You mention that you are emotional but not that emotional. Very Emotional is not really the right description for the typical Ignatia woman; neither is Indecisiveness. It is actually the Pulsatilla woman who is best described as “yielding, lachrymose, but slow and indecisive”. The better description for the Ignatia woman is “a sensitive, easily excitable nature with strong will and mild disposition; quick to perceive, rapid in execution”. Please note that the mentals of Ignatia are very similar to Pulsatilla and Natrum Mur and can often be confusing to the uninitiated.

The next question is about Hysteria. Many sources believe that an Ignatia woman will show hysterical tendencies as a rule. But this statement has to be understood more deeply with the authority of great homeopaths like Allen and Farrington. Ignatia often is indicated more with a silent, indwelling hysteria than an open, evident one. However, don’t think too much about it. It is not necessary that you match all the symptoms of a remedy.

The key point that suggests to the use of Ignatia is the presence of Contradictions. To quote dr. Allen, “ Ignatia is the remedy of great contradiction”. Let us mention a few of the contradictions evident in your case:

• Mentally I feel good in cold weather but otherwise I am a chilly person. I take cold very easily and can’t stand cold for a long time.
• While sleeping I cover myself properly and I usually require more amount of warm clothes to keep my body warm. Still I prefer winters and really fond o Hill Stations.
• My feet are always cold in winter and nothing can make them warm. I feel suffocated in warm blowers and heaters.
• I am a very strong willed, determined and ambitious girl but still my family is my priority.
• I am very tough mentally but at the same time I become extremely emotional when it is about those whom I love.
• I am dominating in nature…even dictatorial…have a very intense ego…Despite all that I am always willing to sacrifice my pleasures, my comforts for the sake of others, only if it is the right thing
• Despite my food cravings, I don’t eat those things as I have good control over myself.

Besides these obvious mental symptoms, there are also physical symptoms corresponding to the remedy. But I am already tired typing and will explain only if you are TOO curious to know.

Since you had Silicea today, let's wait for a couple of days and watch the effect.

Please revert with your status in a couple of days,

Best Wishes

Thank you so much Dr.Neil. Yes I am too curious to know the physical symptoms as well but not right now as you have already given a very detailed description. I will get ignatia 30 on weekend and start the same. In the meantime I will let you know about progress of Silica.

Dr.Neil

Do i also get Ignatia 200c along with 30c as I dont have homeo pharmacy near my place and I have to go especially to get the same.
 
spark2306 last decade
Ok, get it as we may need it if Ignatia acts in the right direction.

Update on Silicea & Hepar:

Face is quite clean. 80% better than it was few days back. I can easily look at myself in the mirror. Comfortable bowel movement. No constipation. But if u ask metally then there is no change at all. Also I could still feel lot of unfinished business beneath my skin which can be witnessed from black/ red painless spots (now they are painless but earlier they were painful). I am very sure it will breakout again.

Now today i took three doses of Ignatia 30 c equally spaced by 20 mins this morning(i couldn't get reckweg so took SBL i hope its fine). Can u please guide me what changes should i expect and observe?
 
spark2306 last decade
Observe for the three days for all changes that take place physically and mentally.

To start with, you should start feeling better mentally.

Best Wishes

Dear Dr.Neil

Its been three days since I took ignatia. Following is the update on my condition:

The acne which had subsided for 2-3 days is again back concentrating again on the lower face. It has been happening alternately for last three weeks that it dries up and then again recur with full force. Its painful and if i touch it some of the acne feels like small pointed nails with small yellow crust. Rest are cystic red in clour with no opening. At times its tough to wash my face coz of pain and also its tough to open my mouth for having food coz all the acne is around my mouth.Constipation is also back this morning after a week of normal bowel movement.

About mental symptoms I think its too early to comment. Its only when something will make me angry or emotional I will be able to differentiate any mental change. I will wait for atleast a week more to observe whether ignatia had any effect on me.

What do you suggest Dr.Neil?
 
spark2306 last decade
Please take one more dose of Ignatia.

Thereafter, report in 7 days.

Took three more doses of Ignatia 30 equally spaced by twnety minutes. But I am very sorry to tell you that I took the dose in simple manner(3-4 drops in one ounce of water) and not as suggested by you on your other threads. Now I am not sure whether it will be of any help. Last three doses also I took in the same manner
 
spark2306 last decade
Don't worry

It should not be much of an issue.

One thing important I skipped in my case detail. I did suffer from typhoid some 13-14 years ago. Must have taken loads of antibiotics for same. After that i had a vrey bad hairfall. Almost 300-400 hair daily and it scared me to death. But after sometime it stopped and I got new hair and now my hair are very healthy by Gods grace

Dear Dr.Neil

Though you asked me to report after a weeks time but I am reporting just within forty eight hours of second dose. I think it did help me in controlling my emotions. Yesterday watched a very emotional movie but no tears came down my eyes. Also on domestic front had a tiff but i was much cool and composed than before. Will wait till weekend for more symptoms to evolve.

thanks and regards
 
spark2306 last decade
Good indications, but let's see how it pans out over the week.

I have a general query that whether more than one homeopathic remedies which are compatible to each other can work in the body at the same time? Like in my case will sulphur,silicea and hepar (which i took over a period of 45 days) still be working when I have already taken ignatia coz i read somewhere that sulphur and silicea are deep acting remedies and once taken they work for almost 30-40 days. Thats a question just for my knowledge. Thanks in advance
 
spark2306 last decade
Another remedy should not be repeated till the other remedies are working. Once there effects wear off, other remedies can be administered.

Best Wishes

Please update on the progress.

Dear Dr.Neil

Thank you so much for your selfless interest in treating your patients.

Following is the update:

Mental: I think I had better control over my emotions. No anger at all over a period of week but still I would like to wait atleast for a month to know the exact results as its not that I get angry everyday. There was a tiff but I was more cool and composed. Please let me know anything particular you want to know about it as otherwise its very tough to judge the mental symptoms so early.

Now physical update: Very bad acne. Everyone whom i am meeting are pitying my face and coming up with some suggestion or the other :( I am just smiling at everyone :( Constipation is really bad. Its almost impossible to pass the stool. Its very very hard. Two days back had some breathing problem though it was not much but it was as if something was happening in my chest and i could breath with difficulty. Also excessive leucorrhea especially at dawn for last two days. But thankfully i am not depressed even though my skin is very very bad and painful too.

Please let me know the next course of action

Thanks so much
 
spark2306 last decade
Well, the first thing I would advice to you is to keep all worryng to the bay. It will all be fine soon.

It is time now for the Ignatia 200c dose. Take three wet doses spaced by 20 minutes each tommorow morning and tell me how you feel after that.

Best wishes

Niel
