This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take three doses of Nux Vomica 200c at a gap of 4 hours for one day (not daily, only one day) and report back after 15 days.

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.

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. You may practise at any other convinient time. The only restriction that you have to follow is not to do these exercises within 4 hours after meals. You can have meals not within 15 minutes after finishing these exercises.

thanks for suggesting a medicine.
Just for your knowledge, I have taken one dose of bryonia 200 in the morning, will this cause any contradiction with Nux Vomica?
sagrawal last decade
If your headache is better by applying pressure, if your complaints worsen due to movements and due to warmth, Bryonia should help you.
Now having taken Bryonia you may wait for 7 days and if there is no change you should take nux as suggested.
kadwa last decade
You may also take ayurvedic medicines chandraprabha vati and shilajeet resayan vati 1-2 tablets each twice a day in the morning and evening as you are suffering from low blood pressure.

Hello Doctor kadwa, As mentioned in a my earlier post that i had taken bryonia, so couldn't take nux Vomica for this week.

The headache increases in the evening and tendency to vomit also increases , if painkiller (paracetamol+brufen) not taken on time. Also having period cramps, and have pufy eyes all day long.

I took 3 dose of Nux Vomica 200 on 10th june, and also taking the tissue salts from yesterday. But since then i am feeling constant heaviness in head and also have tired and red eyes. And no relief in constipation.
Should I wait for few days?
sagrawal last decade
Please take 20 ml Aloe Vera juice + 20 ml Amla juice with water in the morning on empty stomach and at night. Please continue with the homeo remedies and update after few days. These juices are available at Swami Ramdev's Divya Pharmacy. You should also do the breathing exercises.

I don't want to take any pain killer. Can you pl suggest something?
sagrawal last decade
Please take a single dose of Nux Vomica 200c and see whether it helps.
kadwa last decade
You may buy Kumari Asava from any ayurvedic shop. You may take 20 ml of it with water in the morning and evening after meals.
kadwa last decade
Thanks for the reply doctor, I took one dose of Nux at 2:30PM and felt some relief after sometime.
You have suggested Kumari asava also, just for my knowledge,, is it for headache or it'll help me in a whole.
sagrawal last decade
Kumari Asava will help you overall.

The following ayurvedic tablets available at Swami Ji's Divya Pharmacy may also help.
medha vati - headache
chandraprabha vati - overall
shilajeet rasayan vati - low bp and overall

You may take 1 tab each of the above twice a day after meals.
kadwa last decade
thanks for the suggestions doctor,, I would also like to bring it to your notice that my headache yesterday was a migraine attack only, it got worse in the evening,, and in the night it has become unbearable and I had nausea also, then took painkiller in the night and then only got some sleep after 2 hours.
Since I am a s/w engg,, so I have to work all day long in from of a system and with such type of headache its very difficult. And also I will be out of country for 2-3 months, so it would be great if you can suggest some homeopathic medicine for migraine which I can by from India and can carry with me.
sagrawal last decade
You could have tried upto 3 doses of Nux Vomica to manage your acute migraine instead of taking pain-killer. On the basis of details provided by you i think that your remedy is Nux Vomica. If you give your complete details i can review the remedy.

In this case at any time of the day, without any reason, I Start feeling severe pulsating pain in any part of the head, sometimes ears or even the mid of the head.. it causes blur vision and pain increases drastically on lying down, it starts in one side of the head but keep shifting to any part of the head or sometimes ful head also and Flexon doesn't help relieve this type of pain. it last for atleast 3-4 days. Cause stress in neck throat and eyes. Also feel numbness in jawline and feel pain on putting pressure on temples.

Pl suggest if the same medicine will help for this type of headache also.

*academic carreer

I have been a very bright student throught out the academics and scoring top rank most of the time.

Very enthusiastic and zealous towards work.

*whether you prefer to do routine work or like to take challenges

Get bored with the routine work, always live to take challenges.

Love growth and new challenges and take risks also to achive the same, but only to the extent so that my personal life is not affected by the same.
I care a lot about my family and always prefer to have a balanced life.

*whether any event has taken place in your life that has affected you in a big way.

Yes, My father had lost his job in the very later age, and after that we have gone through a very rough period which has changed my attitude to an extent and made me more realistic and hard working.

I am not taking any medicines for past 3-4 months. just now started with Nux Vomica and the tissue salts mentioned by you in the post above.
