Silicea overload?

Hi....back in Dec. 09, I acquired an abcess on my perianal region and subsequently a fistula. The abcess was caused by an accidental self-inflicted injury by shaving. I researched natural remedies to fix my problem and came across the ABC forum for fistula/fissures/anal problems. I bought all the cell salts indicated and consumed them for a period of about 4 months. The healing was slow, but eventually I am now 100% abcess, fistula, hemorrhoid free. The problem that I am now encountering is that I am now stricken with such terrible anxiety and some other ailments are now surfacing which are a result of maybe an overdose of silica. I've noticed a gland in my neck is slightly swollen, my breast are more nodular (I'm a female) and sore, and I'm expelling black flecks in my stool on occasion and sore tongue and swollen gums. I'd say by far my worst symptom that I'm dealing with is uncontrolled anxiety. I believe from doing extensive research that silica is slow, deep and a long lasting remedy which possibly is still in my body. My main question is how long after taking a cell salt can the remedy last in the body and is there any safe way to counteract or antidote the side effects. From reading the description of silica I believed that my name was written under the definition of that word and that it wouldn't do any harm. Again, I had No weird symptoms before taking silica. Please help!!!! Thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please list all the cell salts you consumed, and the potencies you used. How long ago did you take the last cell salts? Was the last one you took the Silicea?

Hi Jewish Homeopath....thanks so much for responding to my inquiry. I was taking silicea 6X, 2 tablets 3 times daily (every 8 hrs.) for expelling the pus from the abcess, ferr phos 6x 2 tablets 3 times daily for inflammation, arnica 30c in the wet dose (capful) three times a day to build up healthy tissue in fistula, and nat phos 6X 2 tablets 3 times a day. In addition, I was using neosporin internally in the anal canal to cut down on the bacteria in the area. I was using ALL these remedies from about Jan. to around Apr. of this year. Once I was finished with the cell salts I was taking Betamannen capsules which are capsules containing vitamin E and aloe vera. I was also taking witch hazel externally and a suppository for my hemorrhoids. I have not been taking any cell salts I'd say for almost 2 mths. I'm currently taking a B complex vitamin in liquid form and a magnesium powder that is made into a hot tea for my anxieties. I am a 43 y female. 5'8' 127-130 lbs. I'm a very nervous person, fair skinned, small boned and am always cold. I am currently under a great deal of stress due to being a caretaker to my two elderly parents which is very taxing on my physical and mental health. I would just like to go back to the way I felt prior to the consumption of all these remedies. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for taking an interest in my problem.

Were the Silicea 6x and ferr phos 6x, taken daily from Jan to April or for a shorter time period?

I think you should use the questionaire on the website and present your case in full and begin working with one new correct homeopathic remedy. That should improve your situation.

Please use the questionnaire on the site and give us all of the information you have.

Stop all of the cell salts, the arnica, and any of the other treatments. You can use a Homeopathic ointment of Calendula made by Boiron to heal any open wounds.

Hi... Yes, all the cell salts were basically taken 3x a day including the silicea 6X and the ferr phos 6X for the 4 months. There possibly may have been a couple of times that I had stopped taking the silicea for a couple of days because the abcess stopped suppurating. It took a full 4 months to clear up my anal problems and they're totally gone. I will definitely fill out the questionaire you requested so you get a broader idea of my symptoms. Thanks again for your time.

If you were using 4 different cell salts at the same time, and Arnica, why would the Silicea be still acting?

Was Silicea the last remedy you took?

That's a great question. Maybe I just took too many cell salts at one time for my body. I am a tall but small framed female. I just assumed that the silicea had an adverse effect on me because other weird symptoms developed after taking it that this cell salt is supposed to alleviate. I'm definitely a beginner in experimenting with homeopathy and was just afraid that I had done some damage using the silicea for a 4 month duration. For the normal person, any food or beverage that contains caffeine will give them a boost of energy for a short amount of time. For me, my body goes haywire and I'm literally ill for 1-2 days with jitters and heart palpatations. Everyones body is different and I'm highly allergic to it. Just thought that I'm having a delayed reaction to the silicea. Who knows, like I said maybe it's just the combination. The last day I used the remedies, I probably used the arnica in the wet dose before bed. Thanks again for your time.

I know, I was amazed that my abcess and fistula resolved itself in such a short amount of time too. II believe I was lucky, because I did not wait to resolve the problem but acted quickly. Also, the abcess was caused by a cut that was caused by accident, and not for a medical reason. I certainly will fill out the questionaire. I did look into doing so, but was quite confused on which questionaire I should fill out. There are quite a few on the forum and some were quite extensive.
