p.s some information about my first baby:
I already lost a 1.5 year old daughter 2 years back.
She had 3 recurrent episodes of pneumonia at age of 5.5 months and after the third episode she was diagnosed with trachea malacia and zenker’s diverticulum.I took up homeopathy to treat thes ailments and touchwood they all worked good within 4 months of the treatment the doctors removed her feeding tube and she was able to eat orally but her all the previous episodes had made her immune system very weak so at the age of 9 months she had a fever and then till she died she had constant fever every day only nimesulide could bring her fever down.Doctors at AIIMS did all the test but every test came out good ,so in the end they clinically declared her immune system is weak and at age of 1 year she passed away due to refractory sepsis.
She was sick for total 8 months.And had to be hospitalised very often.

p.s chikungunya have made all these symptoms more worse.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Can you give me a list of the remedies you have taken please.

On the surface this *does* look like Sepia, but I can see that this is only a superficial understanding of the case (as the failure of the remedy being taken clearly shows).

I can also see that you have posted quite a lot here, and been given a variety of remedies by different people.

could be Natrum Muriaticum as well.
What do you think?

Dr. Nainy last decade
I remember a case I saw a few years ago, of a woman who developed loss of libido and an aversion to her husband touching her. Remedies like Nat-mur and Sepia did not help.

On going deeper into the case, it turned out that she had experienced the resurfacing of a repressed memory of her father sexually molesting her after her second child's birth. She thought that she had had enough counselling to deal with it.

But when I followed this new piece of information, she expressed strong feelings of terror, fear, threat, danger, a desire to scream, a feeling that being touched was like being attacked or raped. Clearly, as is often the case, counselling was unable to reach the deepest level of disturbance (the vital energy itself).

This woman needed Stramonium, and she did so well on it that although she had been considering divorcing her husband, all her libido came back and she repaired her relationship with him.

It is easy sometimes to only see what people present on the surface, but it is what is underneath that leads us to the truth (and therefore the remedy).

Well I do not have any history of molesting or child abusing.

Yeah I did take sepia fp low libido and it did help.but i had to start taking rhus tox for joint pain so stopped that treatment.Rhus tox 200 also helped me a lot to diminish the chikungunya after pains but after a month the pain return ,though not debiliating as before as before,but legs are more affected.my shin and feet swelled like you have it during the end month of pregnancy ,hard and painful more of inflammation.

I looked back over your other posts, I saw that you said Sepia did NOT help. You clearly stated you had taken it without any improvement.

The story given above was not to suggest that low libido is related to sexual abuse, but that it was related in this case. All sorts of reasons might come up as to why it is happening for someone - the practitioner needs to find out what is happening for each individual.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
yes i did say sepia 200 did not work for me when I had taken the dose only once in a week but then I started taking it every 1 dose daily and i did see the improvement.
simkhan06 last decade
Ok then I missed that. If that is the case you should go back to Sepia - perhaps the initial impression of your case was correct then

Make sure you use a liquid dose, and that you succuss (firmly hit against the palm of the hand) the bottle before repeating each dose. Take no more than 3 doses in a row and report what happens.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
I am already taking Calcarea Carb 200 for my water retention problem.-3 doses a day.
Can I start with sepia too.
simkhan06 last decade
No you cannot mix the remedies. If calc-carb is the correct medicine it will take care of all problems at once.

3 doses a day of Calc 200 is too much. Who is prescribing that for you?

I would only give a patient 1 dose of 200c and wait for at least a week to see how it affects them. How long have you been taking so many doses?

It is possible that you could be getting side effects from using a remedy so often.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
The dose is one dose a day.
Calc carb 200 has given improvement to my swelling.its been only 3 days since I am taking it.And of course little differrence in joint pains too especially knee pain.
I have consulted a new homeopath who just moved in our block.
simkhan06 last decade
You need to ask them why they are giving you so many doses. This seems to break our Law of the Minimum dose - what problem does he or she see that requires so many doses?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
I was prescribed Calcarea Carb 200c for the following symptoms:
swelling in the lower extremities, especially around the knees. Symptoms can be worse from sitting, unless the legs are supported.tend toward weight problems, get tired easily, and feel worse from exertion. Hands and feet are often cold and clammy (although the feet may heat up at night).
simkhan06 last decade
Those are not reasons for taking many doses. Every person has symptoms and those symptoms are not unique to Calc-carb. The number of doses is usually increased because of a stubborn case (highly insensitive patients or extensive tissue changes in the body), or because there is a lot of suppressive orthodox medication being taken that is constantly counteracting the homoeopathy.

If a remedy is going to help, you will see marked improvement within 14 days, and most likely by 7 days (although this is individual). Within those first 7 days there can be an aggravtion of current symptoms.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
well!what to do then.
I do see improvement in my body.Firstly the swelling has come down and secondly i see there is little difference in my fatigue.
I f u think I AM BEING OVERDOSE WITH Cal Carb 200 then plz prescribe the proper dose.

I was facing all these problem since after my second baby ,born on june 14th 2010 and then I had chikungunya in oct 2010 which made the my pain and swelling worst.and then for my post chikungunya pains i took rhus tox 200 which did helped me improve my pains,infact the pain and swelling ,fatiguness went away.but the med only worked for 15 days.i too stopped taking it once the post pains diminished.but after a week the post pains came back but not as debilitating as before.and since then i am having this problem upto this date.But after taking calc carb 200 i di find some improvement.

being a full time mother ,i need to be very active.Infact ,i have been a very active person whole my life but after second child birth I had become so lethargic and chikungunya had made it worse.

one more thing after taking calc carb I see I am losing weight,probably the SWELLING was the main reason for my weight.

now you tell me what should I do.
simkhan06 last decade
The best way to deal with an overdose is to stop, and wait for it to finish. Remedy effects usually only last a few weeks, and should diminish constantly over that time.
