Valeriana: $6.50

Valerian with homeopathy?

I have (since yesterday) replaced homeopathic remedies for panic with valerian (400mg) from a herbalist. although it says I can take 1-2 tablets every 2-4 hours I have only taken one tablet this morning (and one in at 4 am for the night panics.
I am very panicky today, and crying non-stop, and want to know if I can take the camphora from the homeopath now that I have the valerian in my system?
the camphora usually helps to a degree to take the edge off the panic and i need all the help i can get today. I also am unsure about taking my antihistamine which I take now and again as i seem to have a so far undiscovered allergy (suspect pasta). is it okay to take this too? it is desloratidine. i hope someone can answer this for me soon.
n.b. I have two potencies of camphora - one is camphora 1m and the other is a lower dose but I am not sure what it is exactly.

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Sure, if Camphora is the right remedy for you.

If not, well you already know what happens when you take the wrong remedy.

There is no way for anyone here to be able to judge what Camphora will do though - nobody here has taken your case.

thank you
camphora has been the only remedy to show any signs of helping at all in my opinion. although it hasn't cured the problem it can alleviate the panic somewhat where nothing else really has. I'm curious - how can someone take my case on fully on line?

It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.

1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?

Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE. You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide.

As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.

Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.

Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.

Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of your disease, or as the disease evolved.

Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.

If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:

1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like
8. Describe your menstrual cycle

Be verbose, be descriptive, tell me too much rather than too little. Don't just mention things that affect you, really expand on them.
