stramoniumIn order to overcome my irritability especially with my children, I did the questionnaire for the Remedy Finder and the advice was stramonium.
I tried it from the local store and they adviced the 35k. I don't know if you are familiar with this potency, I live in Italy, you see. What can say, except that a miracle happened! From the very first day, my irritability and proneness to rage always controlled with much effort that only added more irritability, disappeared completely; now I see my children when they annoy him as just children, rather than a capital enemy. I have taken it for four days so far, three pellets in the morning only and I am perfectly cured. I still cannot believe it. Now I need some further help which is not given by the Remedy Finder. For how long should I take it? i am worried that my symptoms should come back because I feel finally free from unpleasant feelings, a different person alltogether nd perceived as such. I repeat I have no symptoms left at the moment.
I appreciat your help so much and I think this forum is doing so much for my family more than psychologists have done for years!

It seems that the remedy has worked for you.You may stop the remedy now and wait till its action is complete.
You may repeat the remedy in future, if needed.
Dr.Saravanan 8 years agoDear dr Saravanan
I stopped the stramonium 35K and after few days (4or 5) the symptoms came back, not as bad as before. In the meantime I have to say I had three very long and beautiful dreams, mainly about homes and places, full of very realsitic details, I have to say that I normall don't remember my dreams if i dream at all. However i took the stramonium 35k again and I am still taking it now, I don't think the benefit was as marked as the first time. What is your advice on this? The first time I felt peaceful and centered, I felt less impatient and not always in a hurry. I could say that I felt more adult. Now I don't feel as irritable as before the stramonium, but not as well as the first reaction. The dreams which i loved have stopped too and I am still a bit irritable and have some episodes when i have to control my rage over things that make me impatient.
albapapa 8 years agoYou may now stop Stramonium 35K and wait for a while.
In future you can take Stramonium in a higher potency (occasional doses), if needed.
Dr.Saravanan 8 years agoOne of the reasons the remedy may be becoming less effective is that you are taking it as a dry dose - the little sugar pillules. In order to extend the usefulness of any remedy it needs to be made into a wet dose - where the pillules are dissolved into a mixture of water and alcohol.
This must be done in order to increase the power of the medicine, which must be slightly more powerful each time you take it. This is in accordance with Hahnemann's instructions in the Organon of Medicine.
Get a small bottle with a dropper. Mix 1 part alcohol (such as brandy or vodka) with 4 parts water. Dissolve 2 of the pillules into this, and then hit the bottle firmly against the palm of your hand twice. Place 1 drop into 1/4 cup ( 62mls) of water, stir thoroughly and take 1 teaspoon into the mouth.
Each time you take a dose, repeat this from the point where you hit the bottle twice. If the medicine becomes less effective again, then hit the bottle 3 times, then 4 times. Only increase the number of hits if this happens.
As Dr. Saravanan says, you may also need a higher potency as well. Going up too quickly however can create a large aggravation and may not work out so well. But if the instructions I have given do not work it would be the next logically step.
There is of course the possiblity that the medicine is not your Simillimum (perfect match) but only a Similar (close to the remedy you need). This will become clear as you go up in potency, because the higher potencies will not work very well.
♥ brisbanehomoeopath 8 years agoThank you BrisbaneHomeopath for your suggestions.I too agree with the wet dose with succussions.Hope this may help Albapapa.Let us wait and watch.
Dr.Saravanan 8 years agoDear dr Saravanan
I followed your advice with the wet dose of Stramonium, but I have to say that the benefits are not as marked as before. You suggested that in this case it could mean that is not my simillimum after all, how do I find out?
albapapa 8 years agoThe next step would be to move up in potency before deciding if the medicine is indeed your simillimum.
35CK is only a medium level potency, and your expression of your disease may need a higher potency. I would move up to the next potency.
I do not use the CK potencies but the CH potencies - there is a difference in the way they are made, but I do not know if this difference has any effect on the result for a patient.
The standard potency scale is 30 -> 200 -> 1000. Whatever the next potency you can order from your supplier, I would get that.
♥ brisbanehomoeopath 8 years agoDear doctors
