Nux Vomica: $3.99


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Nux Vomica good choice???

Hello. I started taking 15C Nux Vomica 2-3 times daily around 5 days ago. It has helped many of the issues I was having but the constipation may have worsened. Does this sound right? I am producing even smaller amounts of stool than before and there is usually orangy mucus attached. I should note that prior to beginning the treatment, I had a bout of cramps and diarrhea. Sometimes after having diarrhea which happens seldom, I do not have any bowel movement for 3 days. I am no longer very thirsty as I was prior to treatment and I am not up 'till 3 am with racing thoughts and feelings. I am 32 year old female, tall, slim, healthy colour although more fair than other family members, chronic black/brownheads on body (not many on face), healthy appetite, vegetarian, likes coffee and tea, cannot drink cold liquids, good amount of energy although weak in damp hot weather, good muscles, does not like to wake up early, generally calm although I have been treated for PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), pain in left hip although getting much better...this worsens during ovulation and when angered, feels nauseous during ovulation, take Ferrum Phos during period which has helped with cramps, warming foods like ginger helps with period pains and digestive upset, stiffness in thoracic spine due to scoliosis, craves to be held and loved. That's all I can think of for now. :)

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Sorry, just a follow-up cause I thought it may be important. Skin- My skin reacts very adversely to the sun. I get blotches of itchy pink/red raised sores from the sun, even during springtime. I cannot use any scents or anything on my skin either.

please fill in a questionnaire available with this forum.

constipation increased--either --if new symptom then nux not reqired anymore---if just worsened--then repetition of remedy without modifying every subsequent dose willbring on stronger symptoms---this case dose of 30c

but better to list treated symptoms as part of info soas an undeerstanding can be had of case

Hello and thank you for your replies. Was unaware of any questionnaire available...I will look around for that.
However, I thought I gave quite a bit of info about myself and my symptoms as well as other meds I have taken.
Note that Nux Vomica was suggested by my pharmacist and then I completed the Remedy Finder on here before taking it.
Thanks JOhn.....so I should try taking one dose 30C then? Pellets you think?
Also, what other remedies are usually recommended for PTSD ....I am concerned with this and believe my gastrointestinal troubles and likely worsened by it.
