1 – I suffer of KP and being fat all my life. These things have been destroying me recently, since I started to learn what life really is (after childhood). I don’t have idea about what has caused me KP, but I have tried lots of things like creams, pills, vitamins (A and D3). I’m fat not because I eat too much now, but when I was a child, I used to eat eggnog almost every day (my mom says that’s why I don’t have serious problems today!), papaya with sugar and avocado with sugar. Yeah, everything with sugar! That’s the reason why I’m fat today, and I have extreme difficulty to lose weight. I don’t hang hangout with friends and don’t have many relationships because of these two things. As I said, they’re killing me.

2 – Even having these problems in my life, I usually don’t give up on things. I know how to make friends easily (maybe because I have a good sense of humor) and that helps me a bit with relationships (I don’t mean dating). I live in city, but I hate human acts for have been destroying the nature, cause I love animals, I love the nature as a whole. I don’t have any kind of bias (I don’t know how to say it in English but I think it’s that), I mean, I’m not against homosexual, I’m not racist and I don’t use to see the outside of the person, but the inside, that’s more important. I don’t use to judge people for the appearance, because I’m have all these problems, but I have friends who like me for what I am inside, that’s why I always look people at what they are inside. I love cold weather, have hot, hate summer (LOL), love winter. I love my mother and I’m afraid something bad happens to her. Maybe this is the worst fear I have. I also fear that I can’t realize my dream, that is making a family, marrying having two daughters (yes, that’s my exactly dream). But at the moment, my dream is to go to an university near here that is too hard to get into, but as I said, I don’t use to give up on things, and this thing won’t be different. I’m not popular in my city, not the guy who people ask “hey, let’s go party”, simply because I almost don’t party! But I like to get together with my friends to talk about like, playing volleyball, etc.

3 – Actually, I don’t have a profession; I’m still a student trying to get into university. But I’m starting with internet marketing, what I really enjoy, and I have chosen it willingly, even because it is a good way to make money while I’m in university.

4 - In my personality… I don’t know if I’d change something. Actually, I’m a bit stressed, I get stressed with simple noises, and if I could change it, I would.

5 - Nervous, Anxious, Shy, Worrying, Depressed (a bit), Emotional, Timid, Headstrong, Forgetful, Impulsive.

6 – No, I didn’t have any bereavement.

7 – Yes, I usually suffer from depression. I prefer solitude, I have never recurred to friend or family when I’m sad, whatever the reason.

8 – Yes, I get angry often. As I suffer from stress, sometimes noises get me angry. I have a neighbor; she has two children, and try to imagine what is a person who has stress having to listen these neighbors yelling all the day! Yes, that woman is outrageous, and she does that with her kids every day. Sometimes I want to kill her (no, I’m not kidding), because she’s getting me mad. Even my mother hates her. Actually, everybody who lives near her hates her, not only me. But maybe I’m the only one who sometimes wanna kill her (LOL). Another thing who irritates me is whistle (I also don’t know if that’s the right way to sat it, but it’s a noise that people make with the mouth…). My father whistle all the day! When somebody starts to whistle, I put the headphone and get the volume as higher as it’s possible. That’s the things I most get angry with.

9 – No, I don’t have any issues with that. My personality is completely different from my parents and my brother. I don’t take to life all they have taught me. For example, when my mother sees two men kissing each other, she thinks it’s the end of the world. But me, I don’t care, I think it’s natural now a days. Differently of these parents who influence their kids, I was not influenced by my mother’s discrimination. Lots of things I think differently from my parents, think I have learned alone, I got my own opinions, I don’t just follow others opinions.

10 – I think my sex drive is average. I don’t think I’m able to satisfy my sexual desires because of these problems I have. I know I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a girl.

P.S.: I know that maybe my case is more like talking to a psychologist, but as I have heard about homeopathy, I thought I would give it a try. If you think it’s really the case, I think I’ll look for one psychologist, but I hope I don’t need it! :)

please take NAT MUR 12C three times a day for some 2 weeks and report the changes in your skin condition.

take the doses in empty stomach and clean mouth. dont take any food or water one hour before or after the doses.

one dose would consist of 4 drops of remedy in 10 ml of water slowly sipped up.
rishimba last decade
ok, i'll give it a try. thank you.
danhenrique last decade
started taking it today. are u sure i can't even drink water one hour before and later taking the doses?
danhenrique last decade
Considering that the dose is in water - I do not think that drinking water will cause any problem :)

Some homoeopaths believe that strongly aromatic substances will affect the action of the remedy. Water is not one of those, nor is it a drug-like substance as is tea or coffee.

I have given remedies with success in juice, in food, while patients are drinking coffee, allowing them to clean their teeth or drink herbal teas or spice their food. None of these things have interfered in any way with a well chosen remedy. Considering the action of a homoeopathic medicine is non-physical, interacting as it does only with the Vital Force or life energy, physical substances will not usually create an obstacle UNLESS the patient is sensitive to that specific substance.

Having said all that, if you take the advice of a practitioner and they insist on certain changes to your habits (to be fair, as Hahnemann himself did) then you should try to adhere to it. But water is in no way considered to be one of the many substances that interfere or antidote homoeopathic medicines.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
thank you, brisbanehomeopath... I also think like that. But I'll try not to drink water in this time, just for safety. :)
danhenrique last decade
As you wish, if you are comfortable with it there is no problem. But it will not affect things either way.

Good luck :)
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
One week has passed, no changes at all. I really hope I'm doing this correctly. 4 drops in 10ml of water, 3 times a day, no food or water 1 hour before and after taking the dose. I'll take it for one more week and post back again. Thanks all for the support.
danhenrique last decade
if you dont notice any change in one week, please stop it and wait for some days.

we will retake the case and suggest again.

come back after a week and tell us if you notice any change in your skin condition.
rishimba last decade

danhenrique last decade
2 weeks gone. No changes. Actually, looks like it is even worse, but not too much.
danhenrique last decade

danhenrique last decade
