FAO: Brisbane HomeopathRE: Constitutional Remedy Not Working?
Thanks for asking Brisbanehomeopath.
I actually sunk into a pretty bad depression a few days after taking Medorrhinum. Not sure if it was an aggravation or coincidence. If things were bad before Med 30c, they got a lot worse. More drinking, more arguing, more overwhelmed, tired, irritable, despairing.
Went back to my homeopath a month after my initial appointment. She prescribed me Thuja, 1M I think. The day before I had a huge falling out with my husband and the next day we had made up and vowed to not drink together at home anymore. That resolution really lifted my spirits, so once again I don't know if Thuja helped clear some blockage and rebalance me or the 'making up and resolution' made a difference.
Since the first day of taking thuja ( 20 days ago) I have been feeling 'different'. Like there has been a shift. I don't feel depressed or overwhelmed. I get on with my day and my chores methodically and mostly calmly. I don't feel the need to websurf all day long. I've only drunk alcohol twice this month-out socially at friends' houses.
My energy is better during the day. I've been eating salad instead of pizza for lunch. We've been doing fun things as a family and my feeling more peaceful seems to have influenced my husband and kids. We ALL feel a lot happier.
However-I feel worried that this is a phase and will pass, as it always does. When I become aware of myself thinking negative thoughts or feeling stressed, I worry that this happiness will passs and I will sink into my black hole again. My homeopath said the remedy might last 3-6 months.
Problems I would still like addressed that my h.path seems to have brushed off as not important are my day time lethary after eating. Today I had salad but still crashed and burned at 1pm for an hour and later from 4.30-6pm. This seemingly food intolerance has been a problem for many years. Wheat is a big aggravation but every year the list seems to get longer.
I'm thinking about going back to the doc for more tests but have invested SO much money in my homeopath already that I'm reluctant to go and spend hundreds more for tests and to be prescribed medicines I won't take. I have a painful, tender spot on my abdoment hat has been present for about 5 years. Only hurts when I press it but is a very sharp pain and localised to about 1 sq inch on my upper mid left. Wondering if I should go for endoscopy or blood tests. Or is this something that should heal with the correct h.path remedy?
I also still feel pretty stuck in my life. My days still consist of rushing from one chore to another. I find it hard to take time to work on my goals (quitting smoking, getting back into yog and meditation, eating healthier consistently. Although I dont feel depresed I'm still unable to unwind and do good things for myself. i feel rushed, so much to do and the lists are endless!!!!!
Any advice would be VERY much appreciated. :0)
