Whole family reacts to flu nosodes?

Hello there.

Our Naturopath gave us all (9 month old, 5 yr old, 8 yr old, my husband and I) a homeopathic flu nosode 5 weeks ago. I assumed it was just a Influenzum 200c based on what we had talked about. It was in fact a 3 in 1(influenzum, phemona?? & ??) from England he tells me that it was a 10M.

Prior to all of this, life was ticking along pretty awesome. I had been feeling great and full of energy for 5 weeks straight- I was getting 5 hours of good sleep at night, managing 3 kids, my house, homeschooling with a husband away alot, happy, organized etc..

Within seconds of me taking it in the office, I felt dizzy and faint and just felt so very tired within 5 minutes- I still feel like this. I am so tired.At the time I didn't say a word to anyone. We got to the car and 10 minutes later my 8 yr old said 'I'm dizzy mom|....then he said 'hey mom, I don't feel very energetic all of a sudden'... he too has complained about feeling tired alot. He had no idea I had experienced the same thing.

Then it started and it hasn't stopped. We seem to all be ANGRY and I mean REALLY angry and fighting with each other and not getting along, not sleeping well etc. We are an attachment parenting, homebirthing, holistic lifestyle living family and this energy shift is just scary. I don't know what to do., Especially noteworthy is the baby and I. I am SUPER DUPER ANGRY - yelling at the kids, I yelled at a woman in public the other day because she acused me of line jumping at the post office. I am a very quiet, overly kind person who may get ticked at my kids once in awhile but not turning red in the face I am so angry at them. My children have suddenly gotten angry with one another too and with themselves. We homeschool and our peaceful happy household has turned ugly. They fight constantly, the whining, fighting, arguing is driving me insane. It starts at 8am and it rarely stops. This has been 5 weeks.... will this ever 'wear off'?

My now 10 month old went from being THE HAPPIEST baby on the planet who had never cried real tears before (seriously he was THE happiest baby), laughed all the time, to getting angry and him not wanting me to put him down, nursing all the time (I used to get 3-4 hour breaks), waking almost every hour or so at night, crying out (the 5 yr old too)...again he only used to wake maybe 3 times from 9-6am... I could put him in bed and go back upstairs to tidy the house, do dishes, knitting, sewing for 4 hours and then retire myself. Now he won't even allow me to put him down without staying! I cannot get anything done and I refused to allow him to cry it out. I am exhausted to say the least and wondering what the H happened to all of us? My husband is away alot and rarely 'reacts' or notices a change regardless of what it is he consumes.

My 5 yr old is having nightmares out of the blue and she's chewing on her shirt....right after the remedy and both my older 2 are now chewing their nails again and picking their noses again. Oh my goodness as I am typing this...the last time this happened was 2 winters ago when I gave them influenzum 200c!!!!!!!!!!! AND we were all fighting with one another in a little log cabin in the woods AND she chewed on her shirt then- I thought it would drive me insane I couldn't get her to stop!!. We figured it had something to do with moving across the country for a year, the dog dying etc....or having picked up parasites in our new location. never ever thought it could be the flu remedy. I remember trying Cina I think to help after months of grumpy living.,

Although you know I remember one time about 5 yrs ago the homeopath we used at the time gave my son Med 1M. He was about 2 at the time,I didn't know much at all about homeopathy but after a few days I contacted her to ask her what the heck was going on...she laughed. After a week I called and said what the H - he's picking wings off flies etc. which she said OH NO I'm so sorry...that's not good, let's antidote that remedy. We try to stick to 30's now and 200's only in a pinch.

i would start to notice that when the kids got croup etc. or get their fingers caught in a car door etc. I would give them 200c remedies and after the trauma or cold/flu they would be 'different' - either friendly and peaceful (opposite of what they had been before) or angry and argumentative, weepy etc.

To the point I really try not to give them any remedies anymore. People may say you don't need a professional to prescribe but I disagree...I have also heard you should choose a homeopath over an ND. I wish I wouldn't have gone ahead with this.

Anyhow, can someone offer some help, insight, anything???

is it possible that this is all connected????

How do I get our life back???

I didn't think there was a connection at first and the way I was feeling I thought maybe sepia 200 might help but I took it one time without any improvement.

thanks for reading.

Hi Wendy,
I strongly go to the ND and

a) ask him exactly what medicine he has given (the exact content and name of the medicine) - This is very important to do the best to recover you.

b) tell him to stop doing this for others.

I would suggest, a few doses of Nux Vomica 30c. One dose every evening for 3 days and see whether any change.

If not, try higher: Nux Vomica 200c in the same way, every evening for 3 days and write back.
