Digestive problemsHi all,
I took a very long homeopathic test and determined that my constitutional type is lycopodium. I'm not sure if I should be taking that remedy for my chronic digestive problems though. I tried one dose of 1M lycopodium in February and didn't get any relief to date, but did have 2 nights of insomnia right after taking, so I'm afraid to try it again. But maybe I just need a different strength?
I get gas EVERY afternoon and evening, regardless of what I have eaten, and even when I don't eat anything. It usually starts around 3 PM. I may have a little bit of stool, small, hard pieces, but it doesn't provide relief and is very difficult to get out. I can go several days without a decent bowel movement, and they are usually poorly formed and fragmented.
My main complaint is the gas though as I can't be at work in the afternoons because of it.
Should I try lycopodium again? If so, what strength and frequency? Or should I try something else? (in which case I can give more details)

This will immediately reduce the gas formation and eventually regularize your bowel movements.
Eat small meals often if necessary as you may be having a lack of the acids and enzymes necessary to digest your meals.
Report reaction in 3 days after you commence this therapy.
If you take this remedy regularly you will find that your weight too will reduce around 05kg to 1 kg per week.
Lycopidium is not indicated for your ailment.

Day 1 - still had gas as usual but did have a decent bowel movement in the evening which was unusual, in a good way, for me
Day 2 - gas greatly reduced, only had it for about a half hour late afternoon. Had 1 bowel movement prior to gas starting.
Day 3 - no bowel movement, little bit of gas in afternoon
I had a kinesiologist do muscle testing on the remedy for me and she said it is a good rememdy for me, but said to take 4 pills, 3x a day. Any concerns with me taking this amount?

I have treated many cases of various Gastric conditions with Nat Phos 6x successfully where some of the patients had been desperate for help with their stomach acidity problems. However I must warn you that quantity in the use of any remedy is not recommended in Homeopathy. The usual dose is 2 tablets taken after a meal and if you do not respond you may use 3 tablets twice daily for a short while only.
The dose recommended by your kinesiologist can be considered to be an overdose and it is quite possible that you will prove the remedy with disastrous results. Please therefore stop this overdose and keep to the dosage that I have recommended.
The advantage of using the standard dosage is that you may take it for as long as you feel it necessary.
