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

Please don't take nat phos on the day you take Phosphorus.

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.

Glad to note that you are taking Nat Phos 6x which I have promoted on the ABC and other Homeo Forums that I visit.

It is very likely that you suffer from GERD and I presume that you have read my many posts to patients who suffer from this ailment for which the cure in Allopathy is often worse than the disease.

You will have to take a course of Nat Phos for about a week in at least 3 doses of 2-4 tablets after a meal to ensure that your system is stabilized not to secrete excess gastric juice which is the cause of your problem.

You must also take Arnica 30c in the Wet dose twice daily which you will make as follows:

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you take a capfull which is the dose. Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

It is possible that your sneezing is some reflex from your acidity problem and you will be able to jude if this is so in a few days after you have used both the remedies that I prescribed.

Please report your response in a week.

Thank you for the response.

I have phosphorous 200 at hand and I will start the medication today.

As for Arnica 30c, I will have ot order it and will keep posted about the progress once it arrives.

Meanwhile I will try the Phosphorous first and post my response within 15 days.

One thing I completely forgot to mention. Along with sneezing I have watery eyes and get itching in the corner of my eyes. I also have strong itching in my ears.

I am not sure if this changes the medication.

You may go ahead with Phos 200 as you already have it. Please take allium cepa 200c in the same way after 15 days for 1 day if phos doesn't help.

One day after taking Phos 200 3 times a day: Today I woke up sneezing and runny nose at 5:00 AM and had to stay up because of runny nose and severe sneezing.

Last year you responded well to Phos. It may so happen that recovery will start after initial aggravation.
Now you may take 2 pellets each of the following tissue salts thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours
natrum phos 6x
kali mur 6x
ferrum phos 6x

You may take natrum sulph 6x instead of ferrum phos 6x if you are having that with you. It seems that your current symptoms should respond well to Allium Cepa.
kadwa last decade
Day 1 - Took Phos 200
Day 2 - Took Nat Phos 6x, Kalimur 6x, Nat Sulph 6x
Sneezing continues, but not as frequently
Day 3 - Spent whole day outdoors and did not get Sneezing at all.
Day 4 - Woke up morning with Stuffed nose, and cough both with yellow sputum and yellow mucuous. Sharp pain in back of throat.

Sorry about the delay, finally I get a chance to reply.

So after more than 3 weeks this is the status:

1) Sneezing - I still get sneezing and runny nose but it seems like happens everytime i wake up from sleep this can be in morning or after a nap in afternoon.

2) Acidity - Its been aggravating lately and Nat Phos is seemingly getting less affective.

Please let me know how I can improve this situation.
