Strange Allergies


I used to live in Bangalore and developed severe breathlessness upon eating rasam one day. I was a teenager back then. before the breath prob, i always sneezed when in my house, which later after many many yrs realized was due to the walls in house with the white wash material (chuuna or calcium carbonate)

Since then it got worst living in bangalore. Then I moved to hot and humid mexico for work. did not have any breathing issues with or without sour food for 2 years. There were no trees around. then for work i moved to seattle, usa and lived ina residential area newly constructed with trees at least 1 house away. new carpets. i lived in this house for 15yrs without breathing issues while in the house. I took good care of carpets in residence with HEPA filter vacum(upon reading other posts). now and then would eat some sour foods with nothing more than sore throat. (no breath issues)

Then during those 15 years I went to a friend's place built 50+ years ago (in another part of seattle). I got my breathlessness again for those 5 days I was there. That house had old carpets, mold in their kitchen area, and trees peeking in the windows. Took inhaler, antihistamine, and nothing seemed to work. 4-5 times using inhaler every 2 hrs. got very weak. I was looking forward to get back to my safe haven, my residence.

When I came back to my own residence, after a couple of hours, I became as normal as had been for 13 years in my own residence. Then after 2 yrs, I was walking through a place where I never go. It is the very old part of seattle. I had to stop-by to meet a friend. I crossed a small grren area (green trees) and there was one man sweeping the dusty muddy ground. I happened to cross the path and instantly started wheezing, and my breath stopped. Not prepared went to the closest doc. who gave me an inhaler. Not prepared becausse back in and around my part of seattle have lived for 15 years and no breathing issues. now things started to become clear about trees, mud kind of dust the possible culprit. When symptom free for so many years I started calling each country safe or not safe rather than what I possibly was surrounded by. When I met that doc, an allergist as an emergency, he did skin test to find i am allergic to mold, dust mites, cat protein (he said not dander).

Currently - Now a new job made me get into a new residence ina different section of seattle. I have been out of breath severely all over again. The only common thing I see is, it is an old neighborhood with carpets and house made 15 yrs ago and I am the 5th owners. The house has trees, shrubs, creepers, sticking right through my windows. MY Hepa filter vacum that I thought as my savior has helped as far as reducing or making sneez go away in this new residence, only. but severe breathlessness wakes me up at 2-3am. I wake up with a cough so dry with no rumbling yet I have to use all my energy to spit plegm the size of a nail-head. It is light green in color.

I picked up homeopathy medicine by bioaller says ' mold, dust, yeast' have been taking it for 4 days. It's ingredients are:
Adrenalinum (Adrenaline) 6X, Arsenicum Iodatum (Arsenious Iodide) 6X, Lycopodium Clavatum (Club Moss) 6X, Natrum Sulphuricum (Sodium Sulfate) 6X, Silicea (Silica) 6X, Aspergillus Flavus 12X, A Fumigatis 12X, A Glaucous 12X, A Nidulans 12X, A Niger 12X, Candida Albicans 12X, Farinae (Mite) 12X, Histaminum (histamine) 12X, House Dust 12X, Mucor Plumbeus 12X, Penicillium Camemberti (Penicillin) 12X, P Chrysogenum 12X, P Digitatum 12X, P Notatum 12X, P Roqueforti 12X, Saccharomyces (Baker's Yeast) 12X, Sacharomyces (Brewer's Yeast) 12X.

I am suspecting to discontinue it since I am thinking, maybe when my system is perfect then I could build resistence to mold and dust, but until then
maybe stop....

Am I thinking along the right line as far as allergy and medicine taking info, or not..pls pls help. After being breathing issues free for 17 yrs I feel like not going back to the way things were during my teen years in Bangalore. If I had no choice, as far as brethlessness/sneezing then I would take it as my destiny. BUt being symptom-free for 17 years, I know I have a choice to prevent and protect??? But what??

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please stop taking the jumbo combination remedy that you are taking.

day 1 to day 3
please take three doses of arsenic alb 30c at a gap of 4 hours.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

day 4 to day 10
please take 2 pellets each of the following tissue salts thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours.
Natrum Sulph 6x
Kali Mur 6x
Ferrum Phos 6x

Please report after 10 days.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Please read my posts on the breathing exercises called as Anulom Vilom Pranayam and Kapalbhati Pranayam by following the links given below. Please practise these pranayams regularly for half an hour preferably in a garden early in the morning.

Thank you for your response.

A new info, I went to the allergist before the post came up. I was desperate to get some answers.I got nothing along lines of allergy (/rhinitis-if that's what this is) yet. Says a work in progress.

However, the allergist suspects a few things going on. GERD (acid reflux) a part of the problem, which possibly is while doing the breathing test the reflux so bad that it made the breath even shorter than what it is.
Pls, shed some light on this end.

I stopped taking the well-said 'jumbo combination remedy' on the day of the post. Done! The bottle instructed to stop after 5 days if no relief. I was on the 4th day of sending my post.

While following homeopathy rules, I'm starting arsenic alb 30c now and day 4-10 will take
Natrum Sulph 6x
Kali Mur 6x
Ferrum Phos 6x

I will respond on the 10day.

I will try my best in following the pranayams and get back in 10 days.
Rihanna last decade
arsenic alb has a profound influence on GERD. So please go ahead and report after 10 days.
kadwa last decade
Hi Dr Kadwa,

Many thanks. I have been following your suggestions. Now on the 4day. Quick updates. I have no wheezing right now and for the most of 2-4 day. I have severe burn at the bottom of throat since day 3. I feel like pouring a lot of cold water (not ice cold) to stop that flame-like sensation below the throat. I have had bad acid reflux (forceful belching).

some experience to report:
On day 1 someone got a carrom-board over to play. within seconds I was wheezing and within 15 minutes outsides of the eye started to burn. No chest tightness within these few minutes. Got carrom removed out of the house and vaccumed. In an hr the wheezing stopped. On day 3 I was lying on the mattress on a carpet. This room is immediately next to creepers/trees. Whenever I enter this room, I feel suffocated as though somehow a dusty plate is closed to my nose, choking my throat causing very quick dry cough. as though trying to cough something stuck in my throat.

When I went to the other room and waited for 20-30 minutes that minimal wheezing that happened when lying so close to the carpet went away.

I am 100% certain on dust allergy because, 10 days before the chest congestion and severe wheezing episode started, I had tried taking isabgol for constipation. When I put that powder in my mouth to take with a glass of water, for the few seconds that powder remained in my mouth, I heard myself wheezing. After taking water after water and waiting it out, the wheezing stopped.
On the other hand, I thought of mixing the isabgol with water, and then after 10 minutes, taking that mix and mixing with much more water to avoid slimy look/taste. Here I did not wheeze or cahest tightness.
Rihanna last decade
Why some people are so much affected by dust particles, pollen particles, bacteria, virus and so on and others are not. The reason is the strength of the immune system. Homeopathic remedies strengthen the immune system by stimulating vital force. So please report after 10 days all your symptoms. By that time the effect of your current medication will also be clear. You may use the standard format.
Please copy the Questionnaire from the following thread
and post all the questions here duly answered. On that basis your remedy may reviewed.

The royal path of strengthening the immune system is to practise the breathing exercises regularly.
kadwa last decade
Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering?

a. wheezing. allergy test shows allergic to dust, mold, cat protein.

b. unable to breathe. mainly in stuffy, dust prone areas, with trees and greenery in the neighborhood.

c. strong forceful belching with many a times unable to get the belch out. Severe burn starting at the tip of throat. Breath forceful air
through stomach. Bloated stomach.

d. Chest constriction makes breathing worse. Need clothing to be loosened 99% at stomach and chest area.

e.Very hungry. Feel like eating all the time.

f. Severe constipation.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?

a. A few yrs before my first episode of breathing problem, I had an interesting thing happen.
I ate rice dish with some chhutney made of tomato, onion, and green chillie.
That night I got throat itching, followed by very high fever (104F).

b. Possible hypoglycemia. was told by doc 10+ yrs ago to eat more nuts/proteins.

Highly constipated, not thirsty, when I do drink warm water is preferable. I don't drink soda or soft-drinks since 15 yr old.
But I remember in childhood, I drank only cold water, and plenty cold-drinks.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?

when stressed, speak fast, very high speed/volume, get upset when told to calm down, heart beats fast, and feeling of start of breathless.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?

before taking homeopath medicine suggested here (arsenic album 1-3 days followed by 4-10 days kali Mur, Nat sul, Ferr phos)
when breathless, I COULD NOT get cough out, no room in chest even to cough anything out. Total congestion, forceful coughing rarely would give a green colored phlegm of the size of nail-head.
(This worst case is happening now in the new residence surrounded by creepers/trees with old neighborhood.)

To breath, I take asthalin inhaler, immediately after this nose starts running and clear mucous starts coming out. Atleast 1 hand-towel gets wet with these quick/frequent/running/clear mucous immediately after inhaling asthalin.
I have noticed after taking arsenic alb my nose runs exactly the same way as it did by taking asthalin. I have not taken asthaline or any antihistamine since
sep 20 or beginning of homeopathy suggested here.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

The breathing/wheezing issue started when 15 yr old or so. Now, 15-16 yr was symptom free up until moved to this residence or in other greenery surrounded residence.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?
Definitely wake up at around midnight or sometime 2-3 am. however, breathing issues in new residence can happen anytime of the day, in addition to midnight or 2-3am.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?

Used to know for sure Citric foods like lemon, yogurt, tamarind, dried-mango powder, chaat masala, pomegranate seeds.
Now, at current residence since starting homeopathy medicine suggestion sep 20, I did not eat anything other than broccholi, potato veg. recipe (no tomato). Gradually by 5th day was feeling better.
Then, on 10th day I happen to taste garbanzo with amla in it. That night had severe breathing problem. Taking arsenic albumin helped immediately. Sorry, I wa not sure idf I could or not after 1-3 dose mentioned in this forum. But did not want to take any allopathy.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?

Yes, to change of place. Not linked to menses.
(On a separate note, a day before menses I get very weepy and defensive)

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?

Bangalore was humid and cold. That did not work for me.

Mexico was hot and humid. That worked for me. Zero symptoms.

Seattle cold, but it worked ina place close to lake but no trees and it was a new construction.

Part of Seattle did not work for me where surrounded by trees and had mold in kitchen, and old resdence.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild,
Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

I am arrogant but have changed much compared to young days. yes suspicious, skeptical, talkative, father thinks arguementative but share a very healthy relationship with parents. very caring, with opinions for world. its problems, earth, people and more.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
Cold whether instantly makes me sneeze. Nothing observed different reated to before after thunderstorm when in the house.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?

Yes. Taken pulsatilla before per doc's recommendation for an injury. That made me feel very cold/shivery. After eliminating Pulsatilla medicine doctor realized Hamamelis Virg.
was right for that injury. Not had symptoms in 6+ yrs.

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?
Yes to all 3. Smell I was since young age, noise too. Light I think after my continued intake of doxycycline for horrible acne during studying days in University. I thought that photo sensitivity was a big side-effect of it.

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc?
Perfectionist earlier on, forced to change that quality because I blamed it for my severe writer's cramp/elbow pain concerns.
No nail biting, or talking to self. causeless weeping more around menses. had very tough baby delivery 8 yrs ago. Difficulty in getting past
and moving on toward the next child. fetal Arithmia. child is fine and well.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?
husband a very nice down to earth person. His quite nature makes me concerned on his thoughts.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
Child's and parent's safety.

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
Crave fried tid-bits, have been acne-prone. like sweets. not ice-creams. even if I ate it, i will warm my ice-cream, first.

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?

14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?
I am certain on raw onion, lemon, tamarind. Raw onion instantly itches in my throat, making me uneasy, but is not just raw onion, tomatoes, lemon.
Since in this new residence, observed eating cheese gives breathing problems (or is it GERD that is doing it).

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?
Highly constipated. Very irregular. Tried isabgol mixed with ginger powder. Instanly wheezed when the dry powder in mouth. After clearing it down with water, stopped wheezing
in 30 minutes.

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?
Lately forcing to sleep with 2 pillows under head, to get rid of possible GERD symptoms (doc thought it).
Otherwise slept late and wok-up late. Since 5th day of 10 day treatment with homeopathy slept very well.

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general? I think so.

20. How do you think you are different from others, if at all?
Confident, hard-working, great and amazing, loving, driven parent for my little one.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
Doctor asked me to take a corticosteroid for 5 days. I took it 1 day and stopped. Started getting pain in bones, super-person for 1/2 day and lethargic
for the rest. hallucinated. Thought it to be side effect. Do not intend to take it ever.

22. What major diseases are running in your family?
diabetes in one parent side and extremely healthy diabetes/cholesterol wise the other parent's family.
grandma allergic to penicillin. Don't know why but she squeezed lemon in her moth and ingest it without touching the insides of her throat.
She lives to be past 100. I remember her with profuse running nose. She lived that long smilingly with homeopathy.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance
Tiny, petite, was always told of my bone weight giving me the weight. Pale complexion. belly was normal upuntil this breathing issues. Now belly protrudes out like a pregnant person does.

Thank you

Hello Dr Kadwa,

I did not mention on my 10 day report.

Day1-5 intense water like mucous through nose making me wet my hand towel a lot.
Apart from the day 2 episode of instant wheezing when immediately next to a new carrom board (received by a friend), the other days were fine.

Day 6-10 seemed under control especially if I took the next dose exactly in 1 hr from eating food. Here I was taking nat sulph, kali mur, and ferrum phos. I could feel belching was made 20-30% better.

On Day 13 (today) - took a cheese (Asiago cheese) bread
I had congestion in 4 hrs.
Also, just to let you know how thankful I am to your time in looking at my case. I wouldn't know what to do without your suggestion/this forum.

Please repeat our Ars. Alb - Tissue salts treatment plan and report back after 10 days. Please do the breathing exercises regularly.

Rihanna last decade
Hello Dr Kadwa,

Here is a report
day 1- slept like a log
day 2- everything good until
night time (since it was fasting night - celebration). We got milk-cake, I ate it and in the night my face from being clean got tiny little bumps on the forehead.
That night did not sleep, due to breathing problems. Ars. albu felt good as far as burping. The chest tightness made me sleep only at 4am.
Day 3- Better but not as good as day 1.

Day4- started salts. feel better. Could go for light running without breathing issues. Day 4 night ate something from store peas paneer. Within seconds, severe chest tightness. I don't know if it was onion, tomato, color additives or one of the super citric food items like mango powder.
Could not sleep until 2am.

Something I used to get after eating very citric food. 1st episode was 14 yr old with a super citric chutney made of raw tomato, raw onion, and raw green chillies. Within 1/2 hr, I had my 1st high fever that 'I remember' (104-105).

Last in 2005 ate some bagged chips from store with strong ketchup taste, and in 30 minutes had sever throat pain, headache, unable to talk, achy feeling, followed by high fever of 105.

Since day 4 evening, similar sore thoat with fever and body aching.

Day 5
Sat - oct 10, I ate vegetable rice with 1 tsp oil and veg. I think work alright with me. Asparagus, potato, and asafoetida, cumin powder. I felt great. In the night I made plain dal/lentils. no tomatoes, no onions, no onion seed (kalonji/nigella seed). Very bland. But I slept like a baby 8 hrs.

Day 6 Sun - Oct 11-

I ate moongdal/masoor dal khichadi without ginger, garlic, onion, tomato. No forceful belching, or wheezing/breathlessness.
I ate moond dal/massor dal with chapati. Still good. Then at 4:30pm I started think of some taste in my food, since I have been missing some onion, tomato, ginger and garlic.
So, I ate very little white rice with this bengal gram dal from a friends. It had tomato, onion, vinegar, and red chillie powder. Not a lot of red chillie powder, but still there.
With the 1st bite slight wheezing, and by the end of the rice unable to breath. I quickly drank this water which I had boiled with coriander leaves, cinnamon
sticks, whole black pepper, fenugreek/methi seeds, and jeera/cumin seeds (all straned after boiling water). A friend had called it 'kashay'. This is the
1st time I have taken it.

(I did not want to take my 3rd dose of tissue salts suggested by you yet, since I was saving it for before dinner. I count it as my saviour.)

After 30 minutes, I started burping in a relaxed manner (not forcefully). By 45 minutes, I had the urge to pass motion. Motion was darker color possibly due
to the dark colored water 'kashay' made up of boiled water with ingredients coriander leaves1tsp, cinnamon sticks2, whole black pepper1tsp, fenugreek/methi seeds
1tsp, and jeera/cumin seeds 1tsp, and 2 tsp ajwain -all strained after boiling water).

I Felt much lighter and better with 65% breathing better. Stomach still protruded possibly because I am breathing through stomach still.
Then at 5:30pm I took your suggested salts the final dose for the day since I eat dinner at 6:30pm.

By 5:45pm my nose starts running which is usually a difficult task to do after breathing issues/chest tightness is present. I am thinking possibly after the salts.
It has a tendency to make my mucuous runny, and clear, again something arsenic alb. did to for first 3 days on the 1st set and 2nd set. The same runny nose with clear mucuous used to happen when I took
asthalin inhaler in Bangalore. Feeling from 65% to 75% better. stomach still protruded.

At 6:30pm I ate dinner at a friend's. Since coming close to festival season, friend made and I ate, sweets, rice, garbanzo/white chholey with tomato onion in it.
By 7:20pm slight chest tightness, by 8pm the worst.
I was told by friend to take kashay usually immdtly following dinner to relieve from acidity. But I took it an hr later after getting home.

8pm drank 'kashay'. No relief from acidity.
9pm took tissue salts (this would be the 4th dose, 1 more than I should have - out of desperation). Minimal nose running. Not like usual. Since
minimal nose running I knew and it was true I had no releif from chest congestion. Felt 10% better at 10 :30pm.
Now, 11:40pm it is the worst. I really don't want an inhaler or quick-fix allo. meds.

Do you think ars alb 30 c for immdte releif is alright?

Do you think ars alb 30 c for immdte releif is alright?
kadwa last decade
Thank you, Sir!

I took arsenic. alb. 30c 5 pills and felt 40% better in 15 minutes.

Only if I don't feel better can I take another 4 dry pills?

If I feel better do I continue with my salts starting tomorrow again. or would you suggest I change anything?
Rihanna last decade
Only if I don't feel better can I take another 4 dry pills?

Yes. You may take upto 4 doses in a day. Tommorrow you may take three doses of ars alb.

Then for a week you should take the following salts.

please take 2 pellets each of the following tissue salts thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours.
Natrum Sulph 6x
Kali Mur 6x
Natrum Phos 6x

Please note ferrum phos is replaced by natrum phos.

Please avoid festivities through GI Tract !!
kadwa last decade

I could only find Natrum Phos 6c in health store , is there something I could do to make it close to 6x?
Can I take 6C?

'Please avoid festivities through GI Tract !!'

I was so upset at myself too, Sir. I will remember and refrain 100% from outside food. It's going to be difficult but after last night's experience, I will.

Here is my last night's experience:

Last night was horrible for me. To recover from chest tightness I took Ars.Alb. 30c. In 15 minutes it was 40% better. But as time progressed and I took my 2nd dose, it felt like things were moving backward and now I could breath a total of 30% better only. I started feeling very chilly/cold.

I was so sleepy and my back ached as a result of forcing some air in me but I just could not feel it. Usually, raising my head with pillows alligned under my head and body, helped with breathing. But last night there was no improvement. So, I stayed awake. At around 4am I slept still with no chest openness. Only forcing some air in me laying tilted backward.

When I had problem in Bangalore, I remember laying bending forward (acute angle)and that would give my chest some room to breath minimal air in the middle of the nights. But, now since this episode since past 1 month after the allergist suggested and I tried tilting backward(instead of forward) while sleeping with 2 cushions under head (obtuse angle) helped. His reason was to keep the acids below chest/heart area.

But last night that tilting backward just did not help (It did help in the past month). I slept while waking up rest of night between 4am and 7am with minimal sips of air.

I slept uninterrupted from 7am-8am. And when I woke up my nose was running (clear mucous). I feel 40% better again.

I will start today Natrum Sulph 6x
Kali Mur 6x
Natrum Phos 6c??? OK since unable to find 6X for immediate consumption.
Rihanna last decade
Please take note of the following revised treatment plan.

day 1 to day 3
Carbo Veg 30c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours

day 4 to day 15
2 tablets each following tissue salts thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours
ferrum phos 6x
natrum sulph 6x
kali mur 6x

If you suffer from acidity you should take 4 pills of natrum sulph 6c in the morning and at night. Otherwise don't take.

Please report after 15 days.
kadwa last decade
Respected SIr,

I started yesterday OCT 13 carbo veg. 30c (1-3 days) and ferr.phos6x, nat.sulph6x, kalimur 6x (4-15days).

After making a strict decision on not leaning toward outside food/junk and eating non acidic food only, here is my yesterday's run down:

I. woke up at 8am - ate my breakfast then had 'kashay'. (cumin, ajwain, whole blackpepper, coriander leaves, 2 cinnamon sticks,
fenugreek/methi seeds in boiled water, then strained. )

no snacking. Which is hard to do since 10 yrs ago, during my regular medical check-up my doc. mentioned me possibly having hypoglycemia. My symptoms were 1. very hungry, 2. when bent and looked down and then up it took a good 7-10 seconds for faint feeling to subside. Back then doc. had asked me to eat e.g. cereal with milk, but ensure I added more nuts and less cereal with milk.

So, for the past 9 yrs I would eat nuts and then more nuts, since I used to be hungry a lot. Still do get very hungry. I ate mostly cashew. Basically protein-rich diet. (sorry now that I realize I did not mention it to you in my questionnaire
answered. I was more focused on allergy-related symptoms only while answering)

II. Lunch - non tomato/onion/lunch followed by kashaya.

III. Dinner - non tomato/onion/lunch followed by kashaya.

Food was either rice/chapaati with dals/lentils with nothing other than cumin, min. salt, and coriander seeds.

Everyday it's a different dal (due lack of choice of food that won't cause symptoms. The day I made veg. and felt alright was with selected veg.
like asparagus, potato, beans, handful broccholi. Dal 100% okay, veg. still I have my doubts. Beans can't tell, usure if that is the one causing
burning in throat or not.

I have had instant throat itching and most of the times wheezing after eating green/colored bell pepper (capsicum). So, I have not been eating it.

***The day went wonderful yesterday along with a good night sleep after many days (or is it weeks..lost track).
I took carbo veg. 3 doses. DIrectly in mouth tiny round pills.

(Q: Should I take it in water in a future uncontrollable situation??)

Today Oct 14 - Took all 3 doses of carbo veg.30c pills in mouth directly.

Again dal (different kind) today. Whole day great. After 1st lunch with dal, I felt minimaL BURNING (constant burn seems to exist).
After 2nd lunch, it burnt much more. Same feeling after dinner. Here are the foods that might cause burn but I am not 100% certain. 2nd lunch and dinner I ate
beans potato with chapaati along with dal/lentil. Evening I ate a little jaggery.
Now, I don't know if between beans and jaggery if both cause burn or not. I am getting burn in the throat.

Thanks you for you response.
Rihanna last decade

Last 15 days I had strictly stayed off onions/tomatoes/tamarind/yogurt).
By 8th day burning sensation in throat and chest was under control. The 3 salts gave a more good feeling. Congested phlegm uncongested in a 45 minutes time.

But when I did feel as if a belch was stuck in chest, the nat. sulph. 6c I took, it felt great. Within 15 minutes my congestion would melt. What I mean is like last night I ate rice with red kidney beans (Rajma). Was dying to eat some normal food. Normal as in it had tomatoes/onions/ginger/garlic. All the things that I had not eaten in the last 15 days straight. As I suspected in 20 minutes the 'air not reaching my lung' kind of feeling began.
And in 1 hour the thoat burning and chest burning began. I took nat.sulph 6c diluted in some water. In 15 minutes my nose started running profusely. And I slept through night on my bed (with a cushion/pillow for slight elevation). Otherwise it was a guarantee I would have stayed up entire night or tried sleeping on the couch with 2+ cushions on the alredy elevated armrest of the sofa/couch.
Today 16th day morning, yes I have burning in my throat and yes it is bothersome...effects of the red kidney beans ate for dinner last night. But I am breathing. Breathing...precious breathing.

Some addition info for you or any one on this forum. It will go on a tangent from allergies to thyroid related concern. Not sure if I should be concerned or not. Last week I had my annual check-up with blood test.
Below are the results. Pls tell me what I should do for thyroid even though the doc. says in the report normal.

Blood tested at 3pm last week(last eaten at 3am so 12 hr gap)

TSH Thyroid test is 4.89 (.3-4.70 is normal). Doc says normal but has asked me to go again for a blood test in 3 months.

free t4 = 1.02 (normal is 0.75-2.00)

WBC=6.2 10^9/L (normal range 3.5-11)
Hb is 12.4 (normal 11.7-15.7)
Hematocrit=37.8 (normal range 34.9-46.9)
Platelet count=256 10^9/L (normal range is 140-444)

Electrolyte results show no abnormalities.

Report reads :
Kidney function test normal (BUN was 9 and Creatinine was 0.77)

Liver tests were normal (ALT was 11 and AST was 15)

day 1
Lachesis 30c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours

day 2 to day 15
2 tablets each following tissue salts thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours
ferrum phos 6x
natrum sulph 6x
kali mur 6x

If you suffer from acidity you should take 4 pills of natrum sulph 6c in the morning and at night. Otherwise don't take.

Please report after 15 days.

Please do the breathing exercises regularly.

Your thyroid function is normal, breathing exercises will keep it stable.

Generally people suffering from such problems are advised to take less (avoid) lentils (dals) and more vegetable. Fried items should be avoided.

Hello Sir,

I am happy to report that my severe breathing problems have almost ended (for now).

Things I realized that have kept my breathing problems at bay are:

1. Medicine routine that I took for 15 days suggested. nat sulph 6c during acidity. I needed and took nat sul. 6c for 1st 7 days. 4 pills every day. Then on have not needed it.
I took other salts and lachesis in the order you had mentioned.

2. Most crucial was, I moved out of the last residence where I was only for a few months. That place had many shrubs, creepers, tree, that looked in through the window. I blamed the dust that came along with it.

The place where I live now has newly planted trees evenly spaced. These are flats so more commercial space rather than green space area.

3. I watch my diet.

In my previous place of residence where I lived and was surrounded by greenery, eating these same sour kind of food not only gave chest/throat burn BUT ALSO it gave lack of breath.

In current place, the day I eat kadhi (something made up of extremely sour curd/yogurt) cake/muffins, I get chest/throat burn. But it subsides in a few days. I am certain that homeopath.med. plays a big role in breathing prob. subsiding too.

My Question to you:

During acidity episodes I did take
natrum sulphuricum 6c 4 pills. It seemed to help within minutes.
In near future I intend to get pregnant. Is this nat.sulph 6c alright to take past 3rd month pregnancy? If not are there homeo.meds supposed to be alright if taken during pregnany?

Q: 2: Is during pregnancy lachesis followed by ferrum phos 6x, natrum sulph 6x, kali mur 6x) OK to be taken for breathing issues. This I am concerned because in 6 months I will have to move in with realtives who live within greenery. I might be pregnant then. Dust from evergreen trees nextdoor will make me susceptible to breathing issues and my pregnancy would make me think twice about any medicine homeopathy or allopathy. If these are safe homeopath meds during pregnancy then only then I feel so safe to even continue with a thought of increasing my family. I do want children but I need to know my options on medicines in dire needs 1st.

Thanks a ton for your continued help and this forum has been so helpful in my quest for finding a solution. My friends that I had cut off during those months of breathing problem, now see me and say it's nice to see this new me. I know sleep deprivation did a number on my personality. From being social I stopped viositing friends. Back then all I spoke was about my breathing issues and food and what I can't eat. No onion/tomato. I eat it now again. But don't go crazy on tomatoes and onions. Have started to eat bell peppers again. Having concrete/road on main floor helps as well (as apposed to muddy area where green trees grow).

Sorry, for not responding on the 15th day. But I had suddenly started to breath and behave normal. What a relief to my spouse to see a normal me now a days.

Pls do answer my questions, Sir.

i think that you want to say natrum phos 6c. OK whether it is sulph or phos, there is no harm in taking it during pregnancy whenever you have acidity. It should not be taken unnecessarily.

Is during pregnancy lachesis followed by ferrum phos 6x, natrum sulph 6x, kali mur 6x) OK to be taken for breathing issues.
You should take a single dose of Lachesis 200c (not three doses) and follow it with tissue salts whenever you have problems. Again it should not be taken unnecessarily.

Please do the Anulom Vilom Pranayam gently and regularly during pregnancy. It is a great hormonal balancer.

Thank you for your quick responses all along, Sir.

'day 1
Lachesis 30c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours

day 2 to day 15
2 tablets each following tissue salts thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours
ferrum phos 6x
natrum sulph 6x
kali mur 6x

As per your instructions on Oct 30, 2009 I took natrum sulph 6c for acidity nights for 7 days. Not natrum phosph.

Nat sulph 6c within minutes helped in relieving all the blocked gases and within half an hour the burning would calm down. It also helped with the breathing issues. Since I took nat. sulph 6c in the new residence in non-greenery area (residing in flats) where my breathing concern was already down to 40%, IT FELT TO ME that it helped with breathing issues too.
I had not taken nat.sulph. 6c in case of acidity in my previous residence (residence was in the midst of greenery..almost forest like) where my breathing issues were 100% bad. So, I cannot say if it had helped in case of breathing concern due to DUST AND ACID REFLUX as well.

Q: Dr. Just wondering.. 'lachesis 200c instead of lachesis 30c during pregnancy'...So, during pregnancy 200c is better than 6X or 6Cs. Is it because 6x or 6c or 30c are more concentrated than 200c? 200c extremely diluted?

Many thanks :)

Homeo remedies work better in 6c(generally 30c) and above. Tissue salts work better in x potencies. It is good to test a remedy at 30 potency and move higher if it works at 30. Yes 200c extremely diluted and more potentized (powerful). In the problems that may recur one should not move to successive higher potencies but repeat 30 or 200 potency until that potency stops working.
