possible hypothyroidism

My son, 38, has been having progressively worse symptoms that seem to point to hypothyroidism/hasimoto's :

• Dry skin and hair
• Hair thinning/hair loss
• Depression
• Morning headaches that get better throughout the day
• Foggy brain
• Loss of memory
• Hoarse voice
• Difficulty concentrating
• Intolerance to cold
• Low body temperature
• Poor circulation/numbness in hands and feet
• Muscle cramps with no exertion
• Weight gain and difficulty losing it
• Decreased appetite
• Constipation
• Gallbladder diseases such as gallstones
• Chronic digestive problems such as low stomach acid

Symptoms of Hashimoto's
• Heart palpations
• Increased pulse without exertion
• Anxiety, nervousness
• Insomnia
• Muscle and joint pain

The symptoms that bother him the most are knee pain and heart palpitations.

When he was 19 he was riding his bicycle down a steep hill and a car pulled right in front of him. His knees took the brunt of the hit and it threw him over the car. He was not hurt in any other way. His knees started hurting again about 10 years ago when he started doing a total house remodel - lots of bending, kneeling, stooping.

The heart palpitations come and go with no set pattern - he's not always doing anything strenuous. His heart speeds up and then seems to skip a beat and repeats this for several minutes. It goes away on it's own.

He has done gallbladder/liver cleanses in the past and has passed gallstones.

His diet is restrictive in that he eats mostly meat with little or no vegetables or fruit.

I've been trying on my own to research his symptoms but I would really like more expert advice.

Thank you,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please ask him to take three doses of Nux Vomica 200 as follows and report back after 15 days.

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

He may take Arnica 30 in the morning and Rhus Tox 30 at night for 3 days every week for few weeks and see whether it helps his knee.

He should start Arnica Rhus after a gap of 7 days of taking Nux Vomica 200.

Thank you. I'll have to order this strength. It may take a week to get it. I will have him reply after he has followed your instructions. I really appreciate you responding.

Hi Dr. Kadwa,
I wanted to write to see if you would also work with me, not just my son. Actually I also have the same symptoms he does and am taking the prescribed doses. We are both feeling better but will report back after the 15 days.

I have had something else come up. I was just diagnosed with a frozen shoulder. I am trying to figure out which remedy to take and think that the Rhus Tox would be the right one.

Should I set up a different post than the one I am using for my son so it won't be confusing?

Thank you,

Ques: Should I set up a different post than the one I am using for my son so it won't be confusing?
Ans: Yes. Please provide the following information in a new thread. This may be done after completing 15 days. Please give the details of your past menstruation pattern as it helps a lot in arriving at a remedy.

Please copy the Questionnaire from the following thread
and post all the questions here duly answered. On that basis your remedy may be worked out.
