Frequent cold & coughs, social phobia

I am suffering from frequent cold and coughs during changing seasons since 1995. During childhood I used to be very shy and had fear of public. Still I am suffering from social phobia-lack of confidence,fear of new situations, fear of sweat, fear of stage. Besides this I have bloated abdomen and suffering from acidity constipation. I am sensitive to extreme hot and extreme cold.
During cold and while sneezing I get relieved from Cetrazine.

Recently I visited Homeopathy doctor and explained these symptoms in detail. I have been put on Lyco 200C for a period of 15 days.

I am feeling quiet good now. But still I have not overcome social phobia in totality.

Should I continue with this dosage for long period?
Is this remedy a permanent one?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It takes time for medicines to fully resolve long standing conditions, especially those which have been part of your mental landscape a period of time. I treat many mental health conditions and it is not unusual to see psychological problems take several months to be completely cured.

Lycopodium is known to treat your symptoms successfully. I would give your homoeopath more time to adjust dosage and potency to complete the cure.

Thanks for reply:)

Can you please let me know how lyco 200C acts on the problems i mentioned above. What I can understand from the 'Law of similar' is that the treatment of cold and cough in my case will be through the allergens present in very small quantity within Lyco.Lyco will activate/boost my vital force/ immune system to overcome these symptoms.

But how actually Lyco able to treat the phobia problem. In allopathy term it can be understood easily, but how would you explain the action of remedy (lyco 200c) in this case.

This is not how homoeopathy works. The Law of Similars states that a substance can cure symptoms in sick people, similar to those it can cause in healthy people. Each homoeopathic medicine is tested thoroughly to see exactly what kind of symptoms it can produce - physical, mental, emotional, general. They are given to healthy people and a detailed record is kept of everything that happens to them.

When a patient comes to us with symptoms similar to those seen in one of our experiments (called provings) we give the medicine that caused those symptoms to the patient, and by the Law of Similarity it is able to cure them.

There is no physical substance in the medicine to interact with the immune system or any other physical aspect of your person. The medicines are purely energetic, and react to the energy field (Vital Force) that is also a part of you.

For this reason, the medicines are able to affect non-physical characteristics (mental, emotional, spiritual) and cure imbalances there.

Thanks for replying so early.

I am just trying to know the fundamentals of homeopathy in detail. I am so impressed with the methodology of the treatment process that I wanted to go much more deeper.

What I have understood is that instead of exerting a chemical influence on the body, the remedy may actually work by communicating information to the body about the pattern of symptoms that the original undiluted substance causes. It is this information contained in the remedy, not the chemical composition of the remedy, that the vital force reacts to.

Please elaborate it for my knowledge.

This would be my understanding - that the substance imprints a pattern on to the water, and the body reacts to the water in a manner similar to if it had come in contact with the substance (but without any risk of toxicity).

The reality is that we do not know the mechanism, we only theorize about it. Dr. Emoto Masaru's work on the nature of water has certainly offered us a lot more insight into the possible explanations.

It has almost 15 days taking lyco 200c. I have not overcome the social phobia problem even though i am feeling a bit relaxed. Sometimes the panik attacks are so frequent that the feeling of wellness fades away for a few period.
The bloated abdomen problem is also still there and there is no significant improvement in this symptom also.

Please help.

You almost certainly have had too much of the remedy - 15 doses of 200c is not a reasonable dosage. Stop the Lycopodium right away, there is a good possibility that you will be aggravating on the remedy, which will make it seem that you are regressing. If it is just aggravation it will wear off and you will feel better again. There is no way to tell how long that will take, it really depends on how many doses past what you needed you have had.

Lyc. can cure apprehension of public speaking, new situations, people, etc. Lyc., can also cure bloating in the abdomen. If you are feeling improvement, then the Lyc is probably still working, and you should let it work. 15 days is just the start of a remedy. The improvement should be permanent. But you will need to let it act for months.

I agree, that you should not take 200c of Lyc for that many days.

You want to understand the mechanism of homeopathy - homeopathy considers some diseases that are a part of everyone's family history to be the basis of all health conditions. The homeopathic medicines actually remove these diseases, called miasms, and the health improves correspondingly.

My doctor had increased the potency of the lyco and asked me to continue it for 15 more days. I also think that I needed this remedy for more time as I think these symptoms had been with me since so long.

most of the symptoms have been gone like i can breath easily, very little mucus(less than 5%), stomach is far better than earlier, no more fear of going for meeting, no fear while taking new tasks etc.

But still craving for fresh air, Hesitant to start meeting, hesitant to give presentations. In meetings very less often thinking about my social fear, fear less while someone staring at me.

Overall it's a good feeling now.

Please help.
