It has occurred to me that I had left out another puzzling detail. My hair has been falling out for over a year now. It began falling out in March 2009 after I stopped taking hydrocortisone and armour thyroid, and went gluten free. It is worse in the morning. It is falling out by the roots diffusely. I do not have any bald spots just thinning everywhere. I used to have very thick hair. It is thin now.

I have not taken the Cal Carb yet (some family situations have unfortunately delayed me).

If you feel Cal Carb is still the remedy I should use, let me know so I can order it. Thank you for your time.
GtWell457 last decade
Yes. Please go ahead with Calc Carb 200.

I took the last of 3 doses this morning. I noticed yesterday after my first dose that I did not sub-comb to my usually afternoon fatigue. So that's a plus. I did have a bit of trouble getting to sleep and I woke at 1:30am, but went back to bed shortly thereafter.
Otherwise....I'm ok so far.
I will post an update in a week or so as to what has changed or how I am feeling. Thank you again.

Since my last dose, and last post I have become somewhat of an insomniac at night. I used to go to sleep by 11pm. Now I am up until at least 1am. If I do sleep earlier I wake up around 1:30am. I need a nap about 4:30 in the afternoon. And I have developed candida. Which I do think was impending before the remedy so this may not be relevant to the remedy.

I hope the sleep pattern improves, because it I did not have an issue with this before.
GtWell457 last decade
Updating: I have not needed a nap since taking this remedy. Other than two times when I did not get enough of sleep at night, which I would expect to be normal. I am happy to say I have more energy over all. It's a bit hard waking up in the morning, but this remedy has really helped with the fatigue.

My hair is still falling out. But I am happy with the other progress.
GtWell457 last decade
Please take a single dose of Calc Carb 200 only when there is a significant worsening of your symptoms. There is no need to take any remedy otherwise.

I was maintaining my own through the summer and until early September. I have been struggling with a return of terrible morning fatigue, hair loss, and low energy/weakness.
I recall this happening to me a few years ago.
My thyroid is a bit low and my medication for that were increased. I was told that I need dhea and more adrenal support. I don't think they know either.

I wake up around 6-6:40 am, and after my children are off to school I go back to bed from 8am - 10:30am. I feel so drained. When I wake from this mid-morning nap I feel like I want to sleep even longer but I make myself get up. My hair loss had slowed down and even begun to grow back after I started taking primrose oil a few months ago. But since this fatigue came on, my hair loss has increased again. My skin is dry, a bit dull also. I don't have much ambition to do anything. Just the fatigue. I spent most of the day feeling tired. My menstrual cycles are painful again but are regular. I'm noticing less firmness in my breasts.

I have lost my craving for chocolate since the Cal Carb remedy which is excellent!

I am unsure what I should do now.
GtWell457 last decade
Please take a single dose of Calc Carb 200 and report back after one week.

I developped Fibromialgya, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Chemical Sensitivity due to malpractice with anesthesia.

Right after surgery I started having tinnitus, paresthesias, blurry vision, pins and needles, numbness, fatigue, tingling, cramps...

I have Epstein Barr Virus, Adrenal Exhaustion, Candida, HHV6 virus, Citomegalovirus...

That was the diagnose of my neurologist and other doctors. I am struggling with terrible pain, and I was in bad without being able to move. Fortunatelly I met a doctor in Solana Beach, Dr Raymond Woo who has treated Fibromialgya and chronic Fatigue with success. I was able to walk again but unfortunatelly I don't live in California and I couldn't complete the treatment, but I hope I will be able to come back and finish it and recover my health. He treats with acupuncture and although at the beginning I didn't believe in this kind of treatment is the only one who has worked for me and for other patients with fibromialgya and Chronic Fatigue.

I wonder if any of you has developped fibromialgya, Chronic Fatigue or Chemical sensitivity after surgery. Could you please contact me?

Thank you,

I would suggest starting your own thread and topic so that others will see it and can help you with the homeopathy. The only reason I saw this is because it's my thread where I was working with a homeopathy and I subscribed to it.

But not I don't have fibro, MCS etc. You might look at getting a book by Andrew Hall Cutler called Amalgam Illness. It explains common causes for MCS and Fibro, CFS, Adrenal fatigue, yeast and your viral problems. And what to do about them.

I had been chemically sensitive but I've since improved that tremendously with chelation for mercury poisoning and liver support. Fibro can be low T3 hormone, magnesium deficiency, or low vitamin D. Adrenal fatigue, IMO is mercury. Yeast is also mercury. As are the viral issues you have. I've seen it may times on the adult mercury forum. (frequent low dose on Yahoo Groups)

Hope something here helps point you towards recovery.
Good luck.
GtWell457 9 years ago
Thank you for answering. It is my first time here and I don't know how to start a new thread but I will try to find out and do it.

Thank you for the information, it is really intersting since I have low T3, and D vitamin as well as many other vitamins.

When you talk about mercury chelation. What did you use? I have some mercury poisoning due to an amalgam.

Thank you so much again for your help and I also wish you good luck with your health and for everyone here.
mercyinhim 9 years ago
I have spent the past 6 years doing frequent low dose chelation using DMSA and ALA. I also take supplements to address vitamin D, adrenal, gut health etc and so on.

You do have to get the amalgam removed safely first though. www.iaomt.org

I am also on Nature-Throid and cytomel for my thyroid. I feel a thousand times better with the changes I've made over the years to get rid of the mercury and treat my low hormones.

You may also wish to join a group called frequent-low-dose on Yahoo Groups if you are interested in this modality of healing.



It isn't homeopathy and that may be helpful also. I don't wish to clog up this nice homeopathy forum with other therapies that may not be in agreement here. But the sites I gave you will provide the information if you want it.

Best of luck!
