Dear Dr. Kadwa,

I had took Lycopodium 200 on 21-Mar-2011 as you suggested, and followed all you instructions.

Initially for 4 to 5 days I felt constipation, after that it's fine.

Yesterday, I had to give a training session to some of the new joiners in our company. At that time I had faced little shivering in my hands and legs, but 15 minutes after starting session the shivering reduced.

Please suggest me what should I do now. Is it normal?

Thank you,

2) Stage fright seems to there initially for few minutes.

Please take a single dose of Lycopodium 200 whenever you have any significant relapse in your symptoms and wait for 7 days.

Please read my posts on the breathing exercises called as Kapalbhati Pranayam and Anulom Vilom Pranayam by following the links given below. Please practise these pranayams regularly for half an hour preferably in a garden early in the morning. You may practise at any other convinient time. The only restriction that you have to follow is not to do these exercises within 4 hours after meals. You can have meals not within 15 minutes after finishing these exercises.
