The ABC Homeopathy Forum

31 Yr. old Female with thinning hair, acne, tmj, sinus drip, depression

Hi! I am new to homeopathy, but my body is going crazy, and I really need help. Here’s an abbreviated version of what is going on with me:

- I am 31 years old, and to the average person, my life seems great. I am married to an awesome man who is a practicing attorney, and we have a 2 ½ year old daughter. However, since having my daughter, I have had periods of extreme anxiety and depression (she has had reflux and ear infections, and I definitely stress out over her health more than the average mom would.) I also get major, major anxiety over my health and the health of my husband and other family members. For the most part, I control my feelings well, and while I do “cry” to family members about my health anxieties, I rarely blow up. I do sometimes start fights with my husband even though he really doesn’t deserve it.

- I am a stay-at-home mom, formerly a paralegal. We do experience a lot of stress about money because I am not working. However, I know that for right now, it’s best for my daughter and me that I stay home with her.

- I have had acne that started in college. At first, it was severe cystic acne, but as I get older, it is more white and blackheads. My face breaks out worse before starting my period. I have seen several different dermatologist over the years who have prescribed Retin-A and sent me on my way;

- I have strawberry blond hair and am average weight and height, I have a lot of moles;

- I lack motivation

- I don’t sleep well and have insomnia.

- I have a very addictive personality and spent some years binge drinking and trying different drugs. I smoke marijuana now (no one knows about it except my sister and one friend who I smoke with) I often feel like the only way I can be motivated is if I smoke pot. I smoke about three times a week (once a day)

- I believe that I have suffered from depression on and off for my whole life. I had a very difficult early childhood, and have often found it difficult to be really happy even if great things are going on in my life.

- I started smoking very young and quit smoking three days ago. I am using the patch, and it hasn’t really been all that difficult to quit at all. I guess for the first time in my life, I realize that I have to really take care of myself;

- I have had TMJ since I was about 25; My jaw pops every time that I open my mouth. While it doesnt’ usually hurt, there are some days that it’s very painful. My neck also feels very tight

- I have a chronic sinus drip that is mostly clear, but sometimes yellow
- I have a family history of what seems like almost every problem. My mom has diabetes, and other symptoms that are strange including, but not limited to- A large extended stomach and smaller legs, white patches on her eyes and Ducheshein’s (sp?) Syndrome (a problem using affecting older men that causes fingers to get curved). I went to an endocrinologist appointment

- The most distressing thing as of late has been that my hair is getting seriously thin. This has been a MAJOR point of distress for me. I believe that it started thinning when I had my daughter 2 ½ years ago. Over the past few months, it has started shedding really bad, and my scalp is starting to be visible. My hair was always think and beauty, my “crown of glory,” and I feel like it falling out is my last straw.

- I started using Rogaine two weeks ago. I also changed my diet and have been eating fresh fruits, much less carbohydrates (mostly only the healthy kind), have started taking Woman’s One Source Vitamin and drinking an Aria Woman’s protein shake a day. My hair does seem to be falling out less. Now, I don’t know if it is because of the diet change, vitamins, Rogaine or what. My sister’s hair is also thinning, and she even has dime and nickel size bald spots in her head.

I sincerely, sincerely, sincerely appreciate any help that anyone can give me. This is the first time that I have told anyone about some of these things, and it does feel pretty good to get them off my chest. I am making an appointment with a holistic MD in May when my health insurance kicks in. However, I know that I must start changing my life now.

Once again, I am truly grateful for any help you can give!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You have a serious endocrinal problem[s] . But it all started with the birth.

That brought to the surface problems that had always been there and which are part of your inherited pattern.

The details you give would indicate to me that you could benefit from Carsinosin [1M , 10M ,CM] also afterwards Silica of low potency say 3x twice a day .

Unless you want to try Kuldeeps type of Silica.

Re: Any remedies to remove acne scars From kuldeep on 2005-02-14
Here is the way to make silica. I make this medicine to treat the scars of my patients. In most cases it works perfect and in some cases it still works (A step away from perfection)Make Silica at a dry day (No rain and low humidity)1. Find some natural rock pebbles (You can find it in sands to make cement concrete mix). Or you can pick it up from rail line tracks.2. Try to identify the rock pebble (small piece of rock) which is semi transparent) if you can’t find it then any other natural rock will do the job.3. Heat up the stones to expel the moisture.4. Stones should be about 20 grams. 5. Now put the stones on a clean metal surface and beat the stone with hammer. In other way you beat up the rock real fine. 6. When you think you can’t beat up the rock any more you stop.7. Put the powder in a one litter mineral water bottle.8. Shake it and let it settle for 10 minutes.9. After 10 minutes heavier rock will settle down at the bottom but water will be still murky because of the micro silica particles.10. Remove top 1/3 of the liquid without shaking the bottle.That is your medicine. Use two drops three times a day just like any homeopathy medicine. You may see the results in just two days.

Well we squeezed some info out of Donelly . Please look closely at what he has posted and tell us if these indications match .
If they do then we may have to twist his arm to come up with a source of supply.
If you feel you do not match up to what is posted then tell us and we can go from there .

Are you eating naturally? Not cooking everything? Have you been on anti-biotics that could have diminished your healthy intestinal flora? do you take probiotics? Forgive me for not suggesting taking convenient little pills as an easy remedy-- this route has never helped me with any malady like changing my diet has helped. Some of the symptoms may be from overgrowth of candida as well as stress, and a lack of healthy assimilation. Smoking has definitely taken a heavy toll on your system. Fasting and meditation will help you no matter what you are experiencing. D-lenolate, an extract from the olive leaf, is exceptional in treating yeast overgrowth--which is accompanied by thinning hair, acne, sinus reactions and depression for sure.
