side effects of homeopathy

I have been suffering from abdomenal gas (farts) for few years now. I contacted various allopathic and ayurvedic doctors.
When nothing worked I thought of giving homeopathy a try. One of the local homeopath doctor recommended me Lycopodium 30c for 30 days taken 2-3 drops in the early morning empty stomach, once a day.

This did not hep my condition.

He waited for another 1 month and after that he suggested that based on my psychological analysis China Off should do good. He told me to take 2-3 drops in the morning empty stomach. He told me to avoid milk and milk based products. Which I am doing.

I started this remedy since last 15 days. It is giving me some relief and my gas formation is reduced much. But now I am facing another problem - I am not getting sleep at all for some days. I get very light sleep and wake up in between many times. Whatever sleep I get is full of varied kind of dreams (nothing in particular like good dreams or bad dreams). I can link this effect with China because for 1-2 days in between I skipped this medicine and I slept well. I checked with my doctor and he is clueless about this. He suggested me to take sulphur 30c in the night (10 drops in half cup of water), that has not helped me

Now I have following questions -

1. I was told that Homeopathy has no side effects. then why I am facing this problem
2. has anybody else also faced this problem in their practices
3. What are the options available to me. I am not keen on stopping China as it has helped me with my long standing problem, but I can't live without sleep.
4. Is this a temporary situation. (I am suffering since last one week). If yes how long it is supposed to last?
5. Any other suggestions please help me.

My details

Age - 33
Weight - 85 Kg
Height - 177 cm
Any other problem - premature growing of hairs
No other problem or history of sleeplessness.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I believe that you are suffering from GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease).

Your remedies are below:

Nat Phos 6x dose 2-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals.

Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

STOP all other medication.

Report progress in a week.

I would request all to please answer my original questions raised in the post

Many Thanks,

Your 'homoeopath' appears to have no idea what he is doing. Is he actually a homoeopath or just a doctor giving out homoeopathic medicines? Being a doctor gives no-one any special affinity for homoeopathy, which takes much training and experience to even be competent at it.

1. Homoeopathy does have side effects - this lie actually comes from the psuedohomoeopaths typically, who are the worse offenders at creating those side-effects.

2. Any remedy that is given too often can create new symptoms. Your practitioner should be reassessing your case regularly, especially when new symptoms appear or old symptoms worsen.

3. If China is helping you, it needs to be used more intelligently. There are ways to manage the dose so that you can get the most out of the remedy with the least amount of negative effects.

Also, the remedy should be curing your problem not managing or palliating it. The idea is actually to not have you on the remedy permanently, but to stop it once it has done its work.

What happened when you went off it for two days? Did your digestive complaints return?

In order to minimize side effects, the drops you are taking directly into the mouth should instead be put in a full cup of water (250ml), stirred and a single teaspoon taken into the mouth. This dilution should reduce the side effects.

You also must hit the bottle against the palm of your hand twice only, before putting the drops in the water. This is called succussion, and although it is difficult for me to explain why, it is necessary to prevent negative reactions to the medicines.

4. Whenever you get new symptoms or current symptoms worsen, you should stop the medication. This is a sign you have had too much, and you should wait for it to die down and reassess the state of your condition before continuing.

Typically, once the medicine is stopped, these aggravations will disappear over a few days.

If you continue, then they may go on indefinitely, may become more intense, and can even become grafted on to your normal symptoms to become permanent.

It could be that China is a useful medicine for you. But someone with proper knowledge of our philosphy and principles needs to guide you through its use.

Thanks David,

Yes when I stopped China my stomach complaints returned back in few days.

What should be the best course of action for me now?
bad.shape last decade
Did the symptoms return exactly as before, or were they improved in some way?

It is possible the china might only be palliating the symptoms without curing, which can create problems further down the track.

However, if we assume for the moment that it is a reasonable choice of prescription, you need to moderate the frequency and size of the dose.

Reduce the frequency to once/2 days.

Dilute the medicine as I advised in my previous post.

Keep posting your progress so that I can help you to assess the reaction.

When a homoeopathic medicine is used correctly, the symptoms reduce in intensity and number until the medicine is no longer needed. If the symptoms come back as soon as you stop it, there is a problem as no cure is taking place.

Thanks David,

Yes symptoms returned back the same way.

One more thing, would you advise me to take 200c or 1 M once in a month. That way frequency would get reduced.


I reduce the frequency of China 30c (once in two days as per your guidance of diluting with the water and shaking the bottle)

I don't understand the potencies much hence asked this question.
bad.shape last decade
If the symptoms are returning in the exactly the same way, it is likely that the China is palliating the symptoms. Palliation is not a good idea in the long term as it may cause your illness to actually worsen over time.

The higher you go up in potency the more precise the remedy choice has to be. Often a remedy that works at a lower level will be ineffective at the higher levels.

I would not go to higher potencies at this time, as there is no way to tell if China is a curative remedy for you. I would reduce frequency and dilute the dose, and report the results.

Cure in homoeopathy is not management, is not palliation of symptoms. Cure is freedom from all symptoms, with no reliance on a medicine. If China can cure you, it will also make you independent of it.

Thanks David,

I will reduce the frequency and update on my condition.

Thanks again for guiding me.

Dear bad.shape,

Yours is a chronic case of more than 6 years now.

Where is the real pressure?

What are the other health issues at the moment, if any?

Please list all previous diseases in your life?

Please provide details regarding your state of mind, energy level, eating habits and life style.

I went for a checkup to one allopath and he did Hydrogen breath test on me.

It turned out to be positive. Then he treated me for bacterial overgrowth in small intestine. He gave me Rifaximin for a week. I felt very good after that.

But I believe in two months my symptoms are returning back slowly.

Appreciate any advbise and help in homeopathy for permanent cure.

Thanks much

Anybody please help. I am sure there would be a permanent cure for SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) in homeopathy.
