dosage for lycopodium and sulphur

I’m not sure if anyone can help me. I am a 29 year old female who works out daily, and eats REALLY healthy, but I have uncontrollable hunger at night. I eat really well all day and at supper, I even have a snack before bed. I eat nothing processed, more than 80% of what I eat is straight from nature, however once I get to bed I get hungry and there is no way to sleep unless I get up and have something to eat. This happens a few times, every hour or so before I can sleep the rest of the night. Also, because of this I get up many times to use the bathroom.

I was recently reading about homeopathic remedies for night hunger and Lycopodium seemed to really describe me, I also read about the use of Sulphur for night cravings. Seeing how in the past I have been on homeopathic remedies that I got from my naturopath and each time I also had to take the drops 3 times daily away from food & drinks, I figured since she is on mat-leave right now, I could simply order these remedies online and take in the same way as anything she had given me. After ordering the 30C of each of the 2 remedies I noticed on this forum that I could not be further from the truth and that dosing is far more complexe then I thought. So my question is that of proper dosing for the “Liquid Dilutions Lycopodium Clavatum 30C” & “Liquid Dilutions Sulphur 30C”?
I should also note that I have been tested for food intolerances and have since been on a gluten, dairy, soy and peanut free diet that was recommended by my naturopath. Despite this I am still constantly bloated and feel uncomfortable.

Thank you in advance!!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

what was the last remedy taken? If it was lycopodium, then you can take sulphur 30c now.

If you have not taken anything in last 3 months, you may start with sulphur 30c. Take one dose meaning 2 to 3 drops in the mornings daily for 4 days and wait for 10 days to assess benefit.

Oh no...I hope I didn't mess this up. Last week when I got my bottles, before discovering this forum, I started taking both remedies. 3 sprays of each under the tongue 3 times daily. I did that for 3 days.

If you have negative symptoms then you might have messed up. Fortunately the negative symptoms won't last long except in few cases.

Remember there is a way to take remedies like sulphur/lycopodium.

After Sulphur you can't take lycopodium. But before sulphur you can take lycopodium. Calc. carb is an intercurrent between sulphur and lycopodium.

So the cycle would be like this : Sulphur-> calc. carb-> Lycopodium-> sulphur.

You can do a favour to yourself by taking one remedy at a time. This enables to assess and follow up properly.

Hope this helps.

What do you mean for negative symptoms? What should I be looking out for? I find my initial insomnia & cravings have gotten worst.

What would you advise I do now? I have stopped everything for the past 3 days. Where do I go from here?

Thanks SO much for the help.

Can anyone help me as to what to do now?

Wait for a few weeks, this should settle down your system as well as the negative symptoms you talk about.

The negative symptoms i talked about were: Aggravations or discomfort due to inimical remedies or from taking too many doses or taking more than one remedy or proving symptoms that may come up in sensitive individuals.

After a month probably you can start with sulphur and follow the cycle of remedies found in my last post but leave 2 to 4 weeks between different remedies. Also just take 3 to 4 doses of a single potency of the same remedy. If you need further benefit, move on to next higher potency.

Can you verify that I understand this correctly.

I am to wait a few weeks.
Then I will take 3 drops of Sulphur for 4 days in the AM, then wait 10 days.
I will then repeat but this time with Lycopodium? OR should I get Calcarea Carbonica and take this remedy before taking the lycopodium?
After waiting another 10 days, I will once again take Sulphur.

michelle_0402 last decade

Yes you will wait for a few weeks in the start.

Then you will take 2 or 3 drops of sulphur in empty stomach even before brushing for 4 days consecutively and will wait for 10 days to assess the impact. After this 10 days you may report here. If sulphur doses have given you benefit, you will repeat sulphur doses once again, otherwise wait for 20 more days and take Calc. carb. 30c the same way.

After calc. carb you will again wait for 10 more days to assess. if there's benefit you will repeat it once more or if there's not much benefit, you will take lyco. 30c after 20 more days. After lycopodium 30c, you will wait for 30 more days and you will repeat sulphur in 200c strength.

In between if you get doubts you can report here and get advice any time on this thread itself.

oh thanks sooo much.
michelle_0402 last decade
Before I start, is there anything other than mint that I need to avoid? Also do I need to avoid only during the 4 days that I take the drops OR the complete 10 days after also?
michelle_0402 last decade

Try to avoid or minimise Coffee, tea, alcohol, mint based substances, camphor based substances, strong smelling substances including perfumes.

Avoid these stuff esp. on those days you take the doses and also for the following week after any homeopathic remedy. It'd be ideal if you can avoid all through out the protocol period.

Are the following also ok?
Ground cinnamon, basil, tulsi team, essential oils such as basil & lavendar, tea tree oil or neem oil.

Thanks in advance.
michelle_0402 last decade
Tea tree oil certainly anti dotes homeopathics so it must be avoided.

Essential oils and strong smelling oils like eucalyptus do interfere with action of remedies so they are best avoided.

Other than that if you're taking herbs, OTC preparations if you can stop them it'd be beneficial to assess the effects of homeopathics.

I took the Sulphur for 4 days upon waking, then stopped for 10 days, and there was no change whatsoever. I have ordered the Cal Carb and will start that once it arrives.
michelle_0402 last decade

Not immediately. Wait for 20 more days. Then take calc. carb and report after 2 weeks.
