Please help. Sepia has stopped working.

I have been taking Sepia 200c Since Nov 2009. It worked wonders the first 5 or so months. Starting about April-May 2010 it seems to have stopped working. I believe Sepia is my constitutional remedy as all of my symptoms, appearance and personality point to Sepia and the fact that it did in fact work very well to normalize my body. However, it has been 9 months since I started Sepia and it seems as though my body has reverted back to the hormone imbalance I have strugged with the past 15 years. Please someone help me to understand why this is happening and if there could be more I can do with Homeopathy. Thank you in advance for your prompt reponse.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
When was the last time you used the SEP? If it was more than a few months ago, it could have worn off already.

If you are sure that SEP is right, then you might try SEP. LM, that you can take daily, weekly, or monthly, depending on how you respond. Or if it was long enough ago, you could just use the SEP again.

My last dose of Sepia was one week ago. I have taken it once a week for the last month and I have had no response. I do think it is a dosage problem because I responded so nicely to it when I first took it and the initial 3 doses in one day lasted me almost 3 months. Then I took another 3 doses in one day and that lasted about 1 and 1 half months and now I take it and I get no response. In some of my reading yesterday, is it true that I might need a lower potency daily or every few days as maybe my symptoms have reversed and this is a chronic condition which needs to be treated over time? What is SEP LM? What potency is LM, stronger or weaker then 200C? Thank you so much!

I think it might be time to look at your case freshly. Are there any new symptoms?

What do you feel immediately after taking the Sepia. If you've been using the 200c for a while, you may need a higher potency - either a higher C or an LM.

if remedy selectin is most homoeopathic to treatment and each subsequent dose had been modofied --as genuine homoeopathic guideline/doctrine tells---then there is a block to progress and this need be addressed/removed---blockage to treatment could be dietary-envirement-life style..rrltinship issues--whether family or marriage--..etc etc----

Diet and Lifestyle have not changed since the Sepia stopped working. I eat exactly the same way I have for the last 6 years. Nothing new or different in my life. I avoid Vinegar completely and acidic foods and drinks. I don't consume Sugar unless it is naturally occuring. I avoid wheat as I am borderline Gluten Intolerant and I avoid ALL flours and consume little grain.

There are no new symptoms, just old recurring symptoms that have returned from prior to ever taking the Sepia. I would say the symptoms aren't as obvious and I don't feel like I am on a roller coaster like I did right before starting the Sepia but I feel like I have reverted some to where I was before, just not as vicious as it was.

I do think I need to change the potency but what I am not sure of is, should it be stronger or weaker since the symptoms are actually less intense then they were then without ANY Sepia. How does a homeopath determine this?

Again, there are no new symptoms. Just old ones coming back.

Hi...Any Homeopath...please help. It would be greatly appreciated.

Where are you located? I recommend that you get Sepia LM1 in liquid.

If you are in the US, you can buy from Hahnemann Labs 888-427-6422. Buy Sepia LM1 in a 4oz bottle.

When you get that, please take one tablespoon of the liquid and put it in a 10oz bottle of pure water. Then drink 1 tablespoon of that, and email with your response.

If Sepia is correct for you, Sep LM1 may balance your system, as it can be used once per week/month, etc.

Hi! THank you so much for responding. I think I had somehwat given up. I am in Holt Missouri. SO I will order the Sepia LM1. Once I get it, you want me to add one tablespoon to 10oz of water and drink the mixture, correct. Do I only do this once and wait for a response? You said I can take this more often. But I guess I wait for a response or do I take it weekly? I completely understand how remedies work but the dosing has me so confused. In the meantime I will order the LM1 and do as you said one time and wait to hear from you. Thank you again, it's so much appreciated!!!

You should get the Sepia in a 4oz bottle. Put one tablespoon of that into a bottle of 10oz pure water. Then take one tablespoon of the new solution.

Please describe your immediate feelings after using the Sep. LM1, and how long that lasts. It could last a week, a month, etc.

The LMs are nice because you can repeat them more often than the C's. The LMs are different from the C potency. Hahnemann said that they produce a cure faster. The LMs are both more gentle and stronger. Most consider the LM1 to be stronger than a 200c.

Thank you for explaining how they are different. I guess it just depends on the person and how the dosage works differently for each person. So you explained that I mix the tablespoon with 10oz of water then ONLY drink 1 Tbsp of THAT solution ONLY. Correct? I already ordered it, just need to wait for it to ship to me. With this new potency, can the dosage be adjusted when mixing with water? Also, do I shake it at all when I mix it prior to drinking it. I know you can do this and it will change the potency. I just want to understand that I am taking the right steps to the correct dosage for me. You have been extremely helpful and I thank you again. Homeopathy and people like you are such a blessing.

You understand how to make the LM1 remedy correctly.

With the LMs and others you can make them stronger or gentler by increasing or decreasing the amount of water it is given in. For the first dose, you don't need to shake the remedy at all, just let it dissolve. After the first dose, you will use succussions.

Your response to the first dose will let us know what to do as you progress.

You said that you were taking the Sepia 200c every week for a month without any response? How were you taking it?

LM is not necessarily stronger or weaker than a C. Many consider an LM1 to be stronger than a 200c, but it is different. Both gentler and more powerful. The LM is possibly more useful in long term treatment and less useful in first aid.

Thank you kindly for all of your responses. I received the Sepia LM1 and I did exactly as you said. I do have a question, with the first dose, I went ahead and dumped the solution down the drain, not knowing what to do with it. I don't know if it can be saved?? My husband got upset because I dumped it but what else could I do at the time. Please let me know. I don't think this 4 oz bottle will last very long if I keep throwing it down the drain?

I haven't really had any response from the remedy yet but last night was the initial LM1 dose so I will update you soon. Thanks!!!
sun27342 last decade
This is fine. Don't worry about what you put down the drain. It's more important to see if Sep. LM1 is correct.

Please respond if you have any symptoms good or bad.

How are you feeling?

Hi, I am feeling ok as of now. I don't feel any different yet. I have noticed that my cycles were getting shorter over the last few months and as they were getting shorter, I should have started within the last few days but haven't yet (I am guessing it will be tomorrow.) I don't know if this is the Sepia working but when I first started the 200C last year, I went full 28 day cycles the first few months. Recently I had been back down to 21-22 days. Right now I am at 26, so this could be a good sign. I am having the usual acne problems though. It isn't cystic this month so that is a good sign as well. But emtionally and mentally I don't feel much different. But I am stable as i have been since taking Sepia all together. It's the physical Symptoms that seem to still be a problem. We will see tomorrow if anything changes. I will keep you posted. Thank you so much! I am so blessed to have you helping me!

Astrological based identification of homeopathic remedies are bringing good results

I think you should start a new discussion and present your case from the beginning with all symptoms. It's possible that some other remedy might be valuable, or the Sep. still, but I think your whole case needs to be reviewed from the beginning.

Hi Jewish Homeopath! I have posted my entire case in a new Discussion as you suggested. It is titled 'Sepia and Severe Hormone Imbalance' please review at your convenience. Thank you again! I look forward to hearing from you.
sun27342 last decade
Ok. If you can find the homeopathy intake form please add that to your new discussion.
