how to reverse effects of Phosphorus?

Please help me! About a month ago I was instructed to take Phosphorus 200c and then Phosphorus 1M. I really don't like the way it has affected my sex life. Prior to taking any Phosphorus, I used to be able to climax for at least 10 seconds and it was very intense; but after taking Phosphorus my climaxes have diminished and are not satisfying, lasting merely two seconds and are not intense at all. It is very frustrating, could someone please help me?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Looking over your previous post, it appears that the external symptom, the ganglion cyst, may have been suppressed and a new more serious problem has appeared.

The only way to reverse this is to retake the case. It is not a side effect of phosphorous, it is a direct effect of an external or local symptom, being blocked and creating a new symptom at a deeper level.

If you want to present your case here I can attempt fix this.

GUIDELINES FOR GIVING HOMOEOPATHIC CASE INFORMATION

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

Thank you so much for offering to help me. I am very sorry if my case becomes too complicated and long to read, and I do not want to inconvenience you at all.

Here are the issues that have been bothering me:

1. Ganglion cyst in my right wrist.
I had it for about 5 years and it was under the skin, it never rose as a lump on the surface until I used a magnetic bracelet and one day it suddenly appeared as quite a large cyst. My wrist was always very painful on a scale of 9/10. At first I used ruta graveolens 30c and the cyst went down, but it came back. I used ruta grav 6x and then 30c again but it did not go away. A homeopath in Sydney told me to take silicea 30c twice a day for 2 weeks straight. that remedy caused me such problems that are ongoing now (I will write these below). I was then instructed on this forum to take Phos 200c then Phos 1M, then Calc Fluor 30c. Calc Fluor worked perfectly. There is no pain in the wrist, but I believe that you are correct that the cyst has been suppressed because there is still a tiny rise in the wrist where the cyst was. Comparing it to my left hand, I can see that it is definitely suppressed and I worry that it may come back.

*What exactly happened: the cyst previously limited my ability to play piano (I am a serious 8th grade classical pianist, it is not a hobby but a way of life for me).
*Describe all sensations and pains: it was 9/10 pain and it hurt very much to move the wrist back and forward. It was a sharp pain on bad days, as though someone were piercing a sharp object through the wrist, and an ever-present dull pain on good days, as though someone were holding my wrist too tightly. The pain restricted the movement of my wrist.
*What caused the problem to get worse after it started occurring: playing too much piano (at least 3 hours every night), cold weather or rooms (my hands become cold very easily), lifting heavy things like shopping bags or heavy books, general movement of the wrist, strapping up the wrist to limit movement also made it worse.
*What created some relief for the problem: ruta grav, phos, and calc fluor brought relief from pain. the wrist became less painful when i stopped playing piano as often or stopped lifting heavy bags. warm weather or rooms did not affect it.
*What triggered the problem into occuring: I had lifted a very heavy box about 5 years ago and I put most of the weight of the box on my right hand. I remember feeling very intense, sharp pain through the wrist and since then it was never the same.
*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: My mother was moving out of our home and I was packing some of her things that were in the lounge room so that the empty space could be filled with my things instead of hers. It was as though I was attempting to purge her existence from the house as much as possible. I was going to live alone in a 4 bedroom house by myself. The problem started after I had packed her things into the box and lifted it to put it in a room to hide it.



2. Difficulty in breathing, excess mucus in nostrils.
This happened after I had taken silicea 30c as instructed by the Sydney homeopath. I had severe migraines that lasted for days and had to stay in a dark room in bed. During that time, my nostrils started filling up with a great amount of dry mucus. It was that dry and sharp that it started piercing the walls of my nostrils, causing them to bleed and scab. I had to clean my nose a minimum of 5 times each day. The problem has been ongoing since then.

*What exactly happens: mucus fills my nostrils, making it very difficult for me to breathe. Presently, I must clean my nose more than 10 times a day. The mucus is not dry and sharp like it was when I had taken Silicea. It is either clear, grey or a yellow-ish green depending on the day, and quite thick. If i blow my nose, it feels like there's still heaps of mucus stuck in there. I have had a CAT scan on my nose (I have a slightly crooked nose), and the results stated that I have 4mm thickness of mucus in the upper channels of my nose (perhaps a blockage) but I have not seen the doctor as yet to discuss the results.
*Describe all sensations and pains: There is no pain, but I sneeze more frequently than the average person. Whenever I breathe in through my nose, it feels very blocked and it whistles.
*What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring: cold days cause me to sneeze more and clean my nose more. Also being sick with a cold makes it worse. If a room suddenly becomes warm, my nose becomes even more blocked.
*What creates some relief for the problem: using a nasal spray called Otrivin. But because it has xylometazoline hydrochloride, I don't like using it too often because to me feels like I'm sniffing strong alcohol and it sort of burns the nasal passages. After I use the spray, that's all I can smell all day. It reminds me of cleaning a bathroom with bleach and all you can smell after that is nothing but bleach.
*What triggers the problem into occuring: all I know is that my breathing was okay in general before I took Silicea. Since then, my breathing has never been the same. Also, I had a head cold recently and this caused the problem to become much worse, causing my hearing to become blocked (as though I were on an airplane). Also, when I was young I was diagnosed as lactose intolerant. I drink skim milk and any kind of dairy milk irritates my throat and I need to cough, blow my nose and spit after drinking milk.
*What time of the day or night does the problem occur: it is worst both at morning and night, but I always need to blow my nose throughout the day.
*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: It started when I took Silicea when I was trying to get rid of the ganglion cyst.



3. Problem with confronting a person (especially of authority), even if I am in the right.

*What exactly happens/sensations and pains: my heart begins to race as though I had been running very fast. I begin to shake almost uncontrollably as though I were VERY cold in my legs, shoulders and arms. Even thinking about confronting the person causes this to occur. If I so much as stand up for myself, I feel an overwhelming sense rushing through my body that my bladder will burst and feel like I need to urinate or else I might pee in my pants. I cannot think straight because I am too busy concentrating on my bladder so that I will not pee my pants. I feel an intense desire to cry, sob, yell and scream all at once, even though I am standing up for myself or for the injustice that has been brought upon me. I have to pinch myself constantly to stop myself from crying. I feel extremely emotional, as though there is a huge lump in my throat and a pain in my heart as though someone very close to me had died.
*What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring: if I remain in the presence of the person whom I am confronting, it gets worse. I just want to get it over and done with, find an isolated place and do nothing but cry. I believe that leaving the situation makes it worse because I will do nothing but overanalyse every aspect of it.
*What creates some relief for the problem: resolving the situation in the manner that will make it right so that justice can finally be reached.
*What triggers the problem into occuring: being in the presence of the person who I need to confront or has caused me an injustice that requires me to confront them. I simply cannot let injustice slide. I have an overwhelming desire to make it right otherwise I simply cannot function normally until it is set right. If the situation is not resolved, I will have dreams about it until it is.
*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: I believe that this problem started when I had an altercation with a security guard who was trying to detain me because he suspected that I had stolen something which I had not as I had just paid for it. He kept asking me to come with him and I started shaking because it was completely unjust. He started grabbing me, being very forceful. At the moment that he grabbed me, I wet my pants. Adrenalin kicked in and my body responded immediately to the fight or flight instinct. I used all my might to push him away from me and ran as fast as I could. I didn't go with him peacefully because the same thing had happened to me when I was 15: a security guard thought I had stolen lollies which they clearly saw me pay for, and they embarrassed me in front of everyone by asking me to empty my pockets. They then started to touch and prod the leather coat I was wearing which had false pockets to ensure that I wasn't lying. I felt that it was a gross invasion of my privacy and that they had used their authority in a most unjust manner. This is why I ran because I didn't want that to happen to me again. I used to be a very confrontational person; I previously had no trouble confronting even teachers who were treating me with disdain. But ever since the altercation with the security guard (about 2 or 3 years ago now), I have reacted to confronting authority figures and intense situations with the symptoms that I have described.



4. Stage fright/performance anxiety/fear of performing in front of others or for examinations.
I believe that this is quite similar to the above but a little more complex.

*What exactly happens/sensations: before I go on stage to perform, I start shaking (not uncontrollably but from being very nervous and afraid to perform). My heart starts racing as though I had been running very fast. My hands start shaking and are very cold and no amount of heat can make them warm (unless I spend a great deal of time beforehand washing them under hot water and drying them under a hand dryer, then wearing gloves). They also become a bit sweaty. During the performance, I try from time to time to assure myself that I am doing okay, to control my shaking hands, and to breathe slowly so as to bring my heartbeat down. My mind often wanders and I find that I worry if I will make a mistake. I never try to be perfect because I know that piano perfection only exists in recordings, never live performances. My nervousness comes from feeling that I will never be good enough, that I am merely fluking my performance if I get it right, and that I do not have any talent at all, that I am just a phoney. I am also nervous because I know that people are taking time purposely to actually watch ME perform and I don't want to inconvenience people or use up their time. I don't try to run away from performing because I know that people enjoy it and I have never been a cowardly person, I simply lack self-confidence. When I have finished performing, I feel very relieved and will only shake a little bit when I have finished.
*What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring: If I think about the upcoming performance, the symptoms will become worse before I perform.
*What creates some relief for the problem: breathing slowly, calming myself down with reassuring thoughts, not thinking about performing for people but thinking that I am performing for myself.
*What triggers the problem into occuring: an upcoming performance and the days leading up to it as well as the actual day of performance trigger the symptoms.
*What time of the day or night does the problem occur: whenever the performance is (whether day or night). the actual time of day has no impact unless the performance is at that time.
*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: the nervousness and stage fright started when I began singing in high school (15 years old when my father came back into my life). I had never performed for anyone previously and was not confident enough in myself to perform, so I became nervous. At that time in my life, I was trying to overcome difficult family problems (I will outline these after) and perhaps the feelings of not being good enough for my family overflowed into my performing, that i would never be good enough for anyone, even for myself.
-Just a side note, I had taken gelsemium 1M and actually Arg-Nit 200C for stage fright. Both have greatly improved my stage fright. Gelsemium made me become more brave to perform. I performed yesterday and the symptoms (after having recently taken arg-nit as suggested by a different homeopath) dissipated substantially. i.e. I was not shaking a lot and my heart rate, whilst still fast, was not as fast as normal. I was also able to control my thoughts a lot better.



Traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically:

When I was 2, I was at a wedding and a 13 year old boy came up to me, pulled up my dress and stuck his finger up my private parts. My parents took me to the hospital to make sure that my hymen wasn't broken. I remember feeling very ashamed, afraid and violated when the doctor used his fingers to touch my private parts. Years later, my mother doubted that I could remember the event being so young, but I clearly remember it and exactly how I felt, being violated twice in one day.

Family has always affected my life. When I as four and a half, my parents divorced. The day that my mother packed her belongings and left our house was very traumatic for me as a child and I still can never forget the day; I remember it VERY vividly.

My father remarried six months later to a woman who was very abusive and told my mother to never contact us again. To me at the time, it seemed like my stepmother was trying to replace my mother and at first I refused to call her “mummy”. She and my father abused my brother and I in horrid ways physically, mentally and emotionally, and the memories are very painful. My mother managed to find a way back into our lives and the court proceedings were very stressful. During that time (I was 9) I was told nothing but lies about my mother and I became very stressed since I didn’t know who to believe: my abusers or the mother who had abandoned me. I developed a way of dealing with stress that was unusual to me and I still do the same things to this day when I am stressed: I started having breathing difficulties (no matter how much air I took in through my nose or mouth, it was never enough to have me believe that I was receiving sufficient oxygen), bottled up my emotions for fear that others would hurt me in the same way, and if people tried to help me I would lash out at them. I also developed neck and jaw problems; for instance, whenever I think about my father for a period of time in the present day, my neck and jaw both become VERY stiff with a horrid aching pain, with my jaw almost locking up because I am clenching it unconsciously. The chiropractor has noticed a lump in my neck that has dissipated over time through adjustments and manipulations but it is still there, quite large in size. I have no idea what the lump is and I always need to have an adjustment at least once a month.

When I was 15, my father came back into my life and suddenly decided that he wanted to be there for me. I was eager to have him back in my life to restore a fatherly balance, but he quickly dismissed my existence when he found a girlfriend. Things became quite heated one night when my brother and I confronted him about his treatment of us, both past and present. He threatened to physically hurt me, and my brother jumped in and they began punching. I ceased communication with him after this. I then decided when I was 23 that I wanted to contact him to hopefully have a proper father/daughter relationship with him in my adulthood. Although he outwardly conveyed that he was happy to see me, his actions were quite contrary and he seemed far more interested in being a father to his new wife’s children than having a relationship with his own children. Again, things escalated after a conversation that we had face-to-face, and he purposely did not contact me on my birthday to pay me back for “the way I spoke to him”, which I had merely aired my concerns in the nicest way possible since I know that one never wins an argument by being rude or aggressive. Because he was being aggressive, he had his mind made up already that I was. So, for the final time in my life I decided to cease contact with him, this time for the rest of my life. I wrote him a letter and I have never heard from him since.

The thing about my family situation is that I have always had an unstable relationship with both of my parents. My mother purposely turns little things into big things just to see me react with anger so that she has a reason to argue with me. I think that she cannot live her life without any drama, so she creates drama with me to fill a void in her life. She has been very disrespectful to me, acting like such a child and being quite abusive by throwing plates and glasses at me, slamming doors in my face, breaking things out of anger and saying very hurtful things to me to purposely see me hurt. I have adopted the parental figure in our relationship and she the child. With my father, he abused my brother and I just as much as my stepmother did, and I firmly believe that he enjoyed it because in hurting us, he was hurting my mother for leaving him. He has never gotten over our mother divorcing him and I think it ruined his pride. I’m the kind of person who has the ability to see outside the square and analyse things at a distance even though I have been directly involved in it. With my stepmother, I eventually contacted her to try and gain closure on what had happened in my childhood. She was the only person who admitted what had happened and how wrong it was. She apologised and said she would do anything (even go to jail) to make it right. I am very close to her now (I forgave her completely) and truly believe that I love her in the way that I always wanted to love her. None of what happened affects my relationship with her, one of a very close friendship. What bugs me most is that my father never admitted to abusing us; he firmly denied that he did any of it, and he never apologised for doing it. The injustice of that is what has hurt me throughout my life, which is why I react so strongly to injustice. The fact that he has never taken time to have a proper relationship with me is what makes me feel inadequate, not good enough, worthless, even though I know logically that I am none of those things. Logically, I know that I am talented but I just don’t FEEL it.


Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life: I manage problems at first (I must admit) by reacting very emotionally, irrationally and quite erratically. I then stop and think logically, calm myself down, and try to solve the problem objectively.


Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease: I have noticed that when anyone asks me what is wrong with me, I react very emotionally. I think I bottle things up, sweep them under the carpet and make myself as busy as possible so that I don’t have time to think about it or confront it. This is why I have problems with confronting people?


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: I feel unable to forgive my father. I want to forgive him in the same manner that I have forgiven my stepmother, but I can’t. I know it is right to forgive him but I feel that he does not deserve it because he has been so unjust to me. I also feel creatively stuck, as though I am waiting for a huge event to occur that will finally make me confident and believe in myself.


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: I described that my childhood was full of remorse due to my family problems. I actually went to 19 different schools and never made any friends until my mother gained custody of us at 10 years old and I lived with her in Sydney. I have never been a sickly person and never been to hospital or broken any bones, etc. I had glandular fever during my year 12 exams, which I believe was a result of extreme stress. Homeopathy fixed it in 3 days. I do not have allergies and am a healthy person in general. Although I believe that I easily pick up other people’s negative energy. It’s as though I am a sponge and easily absorb the energy around me. I was a lonely, brokenhearted girl during my school days.


1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate: I crave salty food, hot food (lots and lots of chilli), greasy food, sweets, but also crave fruit when my energy levels are low. I hate seafood and cauliflower (childhood memories).

2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate: I crave water. I am a very thirsty person. I hate soft drink but will have it on the odd occasion. I also crave very strong, concentrated juice like orange or mango juice and chocolate milk.

3. What your sleep is like: my sleep is usually terrible. It takes me at least 1-2 hours to fall asleep. I am very sensitive to noise at night and must sleep with earplugs in my ears. I sleep on my back, never on my left because I hate it on the left. Rarely on my right. I wake up feeling exhausted, as though I had been all over the world and had not slept at all. My dreams are always very vivid, many dreams of blood, murder, running from catastrophe, confronting catastrophe, Armageddon, ghosts, and in general very strange. I have many out of body experiences and also can lucid dream very easily. Arnica 30c used to help me with sleeping but stopped helping me fall asleep quickly.

4. How the weather and the temperature affects you: I hate the cold and hate hot weather. I sweat very easily and get cold very easily. I can be very hot one minute and very cold the next. My hands are almost always quite cold. If I've been rushing to get somewhere (I am always rushing, always impatient), my hands are very clammy when I sit down and try to relax after rushing.

5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to: I am very sensitive to noisy environments. I am very photosensitive and need to have the brightness on screens down to the very minimum. Office lighting hurts my eyes, I feel the need to wear sunglasses indoors. I get headaches very easily from bright lights or lack of water.

6. What your general level of energy is like: my energy level is usually quite drained and I need at least 9 hours of sleep to feel great but usually only have as much as 6 or 7 hours maximum.

7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like: before taking homeopathy, my sexual energy was very strong. I was always very keen to have sex and felt that it was always the best way of relieving stress. Sex was always very intense for me and my climaxes were literally mind-blowing, the best one could ever hope for. Sometimes I would cry afterwards because it would be like releasing pent up anxiety (I am a very anxious person in general, anxious to please, anxious that everyone else is doing okay, anxious that I did or said something wrong). These days, my sexual energy is low-range, I feel like I am not quite as eager to have sex. When I climax, it is not satisfying at all and is frustrating because all I want to do is release myself and feel free.

8. Describe your menstrual cycle: I currently take the the pill so my menstrual cycle is regular. I have taken it since I was 17 to regulate my period otherwise things like stress would always cause my period to be late. I recall being an angrier person before I took the pill in my teens and it made me more level headed.

What other remedies have you tried, and what has been the results?
 
brisbanehomoeopath 9 years ago
I cannot recall which remedy I took for glandular fever, but it worked very well. I haven't taken the following remedies in the same period of time, but in the past year and a half I took them in this order:

Ruta graveolens 6x and 30c: 30c reduced size of cyst within 3 days, but cyst came back within a few weeks of taking it. 6x merely took away the wrist pain but did nothing else to the cyst.

Sulphur 30c: this was for the cyst. After two days of taking it I felt excruciating pain in the wrist, it hurt to move it ever so slightly. The pain felt like it had been broken. After taking this, I took ruta grav 30c and nothing happened to the cyst.

Gelsemium 1M: for stage fright. At first I cried a lot and felt very anxious, having panic attacks. But I eventually became more confident.

Silicea 30c: was given to me for the cyst. My face broke out with a few pimples, I even had some on my ears. Nose filled with dry mucus as outlined previously. Migraines that were so excruciating I could not go to work. The migraines lasted about four days at a time during the 2 week period when I took this remedy. Very sensitive to light. I became very sensitive to sound after taking this remedy. I also remember having dreams of heated arguments with family, and during the day I felt very indifferent towards my loved ones. After the 11th day, I felt excruciating pain in my wrist, exactly the same as after taking Sulphur 30c.

Arnica 30c: was given to me for my sleep. I would have less intense dreams and awake naturally at around 5am feeling very refreshed.

Phos 200c: gave me pain in my head that made me feel like my brain was pressing against my skull and my head was going to explode. Very sensitive to light, felt dry and tired. I felt very dizzy and felt like I needed to vomit. Was given Phos 1M after this. The physical symptoms ceased but I felt indifferent towards my loved ones and predicaments where I would normally care, I cared not; but situations where I normally wouldn't care, I cared too much. The cyst reduced only by 2mm and pain in my wrist reduced but was still there when I played physically demanding pieces on the piano.

Calc fluor 30c: reduced cyst almost completely. Pain in my wrist was and still is gone, even when playing demanding pieces. Felt intense throbbing in my calves at night for a few nights after taking this. The reduced climaxes during sex and mostly lack of sexual appetite happened after the cyst reduced in size.

Arg-Nit 200c: for stage fright. Made me quite emotional at first with fast heart palpitations at night when in bed as though I had been running. After performing on stage, still had cold hands but they were not sweaty like usual. My heart was not pounding as much as usual and hands were not as shaky as usual.

Hi David, is there any chance of receiving a reply?

Kind regards,

Tara

Make sure that you bump your thread up frequently. It becomes very difficult for me to track everyone I am helping on the forum.

The remedy I wish you to take is Ammonium carb 200c. Let me know when you have it and I will tell you how to dose.

If you need to order remedies in, the other remedy I was considering is Magnesium carb.

Hi david,

I can pick it up tonight on my way home. Was that a wet dose of Ammonium carb?

Tara
 
pheazoid 9 years ago
I don't mind how you get it, but you will need to make a dosing bottle either way, so get a small bottle (15-30mls)and a dropper that you can use for that. You will be putting either 2 drops or 2 pillules into this bottle, mixing in 5 parts water and 1 part alcohol, and making your dose from this bottle only.

Once you have made it, take your first test dose in this way.

Hit the bottle firmly against the palm of the hand twice only, place 1 drop into 1/4 cup of water (60mls), stir thoroughly, and take 1 teaspoon into the mouth. Throw the rest of that cup away.

This is one dose and I want to see how you react before giving you more.
 
brisbanehomoeopath 9 years ago
I have taken one dose now as directed. When shall I report back to you?
 
pheazoid 9 years ago
There is no predicting exactly when your reaction will start, although most people will feel the effects within 1-3 days. First reaction is usually an aggravation of the symptoms, and this usually lasts 3-5 days after it starts. The improvement will usually set in once this finishes, often around 6-7 days later.
 
brisbanehomoeopath 9 years ago
Is the ammonium carb for my difficulty in breathing? I'm not sure what this remedy is for.
 
pheazoid 9 years ago
It is for everything. I try to understand the state of the patient, which lies beneath the symptoms but ultimately causes all of them. This means I will use all sorts of expressions to come to a remedy - mental, emotional, physical, historical, familial. In fact the specific story you have told around your own family, your parents - is a very typical Ammonium one.

However, even on that local level, a blocked nose with difficulty breathing is a typical symptom for Am-c.
 
brisbanehomoeopath 9 years ago
Great thanks David. I was asking because I didn't know what sort of symptoms to look for. So I'm gathering that the remedy would possibly cause me to become more emotional over the coming days and physical symptoms would arise shortly thereafter?
 
pheazoid 9 years ago
In terms of an aggravation that is possible yes. It is also possible you may feel better in yourself but worse physically (as things move from the centre outwards).
 
brisbanehomoeopath 9 years ago
Hi David,

I can report experiencing emotional/mental aggravation. My normal reaction to little circumstances has been augmented so much so that I have cried over things that normally might not affect me.

Also...look, to be quite open and frank, I generally do not have a lot of sex with my partner (1 or 2 times a week). After not having done so in a week, this weekend my climaxing was a lot more intense than it has been previously from my complaints. The first time I climaxed (after having taken the remedy on 15th of June), the climax became more intense and I had to suddenly stop because I had an overwhelming desire to cry. I tried to stop the tears and the sobbing but it unleashed uncontrollably and I could not physically stop myself from crying. It came out of nowhere from the depths of my body. This weekend, only having climaxed twice, I can say with certainty that it's not the same as I used to have when I did not have the climaxing problem; it was not subdued or suddenly stopping as it has been in the past month or more. But having said that, it was no where near the level of complete satisfaction as it has been always in the past before the problem started. To me, the climaxes felt artificial, as though it were a robot's idea of what a climax might be. I had no head or body rush like I previously had in my life. It was more of a body and slight head warmth. I am also finding now that as I anticipate the climax, I feel very, very anxious for fear of not being able to climax properly.

Would you like me to wait for longer in anticipation of any physical side effects? My nose has yet to clear up at all.

This sounds exactly like an aggravation, quite a strong and pronounced one.

At this stage it is prudent to keep watching and waiting, to see how far the remedy reaches.

If this is aggravtion after a short period of time the improvement will begin to make itself known.

Aggravation usually starts within 1-3 days of taking a remedy, peaks at about 3-5 days, and usually begins to diminish after that. After about 7 days most people will be able to pick out the improvements, and this becomes easier as that second week progresses.

So now we wait.

Hi David,

I have noticed that the cyst is now starting to rise again and is clicking more. The pain that I used to have comes and goes and is made worse by carrying heavy things. My nose has not cleared but I'm not too concerned with that because I intend on having an operation to correct the deviated septum. I feel much better emotionally and mentally. I also wake feeling much more refreshed and a lot happier in general. My climaxing also recently returned to normal (I have only encountered this once so far).

I suppose now my concern is the wrist because it seems as though the cyst will shortly return to full bloom. I can feel the pain that I used to have in the wrist slowly creeping back.

Sounds like a small relapse. It is appropriate to repeat the remedy but I think that we need to dilute it more to avoid the level of aggravation that happened last time.

Please increase the amount of water that you put the single drop in, to a full cup (250ml).

But I am really pleased that you have had such a good reaction so far. Keep me informed on how things go, especially if the wrist creates further problems.

As you can see, homoeopathy when practiced correctly, has benefits far beyond those of symptomatic treatments.

Thank you for all of your help David. I have always held homeopathy in high esteem and think that it is generally the best thing to take before man made medicines.

I will repeat the remedy as prescribed today and will inform you of any changes, etc.

Also, may I ask if you could possibly assist my partner with a pterygium that he currently has in his eye? The assistance that he has received from another homeopath on this forum has been quite lacking. I understand that you are quite busy and understand if this is not possible.

I have no problem helping him out. Could you ask him to repost his case in a separate thread, and try answering my intake form (the one I got you to answer)?

As you can see, my case-taking style is quite different to the other practitioners here so the previous questioning may not help me too much.

Let's hope he can give as good a case as you have :)

Hi David,

I think the physical symptoms have kicked in. I have a crazy migraine which started out as a throbbing pain initially across the forehead but it's worked it's way towards the middle of my head and right behind my eyes, a pounding sort of pain but very painful nonetheless. My eyes are very sensitive to light right now, more than I've ever experienced this year, and they feel tired. I've been feeling very tired throughout the day. Sensitive to sound. My nose is more blocked and the pain in my head feels worse when I breathe in through my nose. It feels like there is a pain in the bridge of my nose in between the eyes. It also feels dry inside the nostrils and I'm not blowing much but feel like I need to blow it as its very very stuffy. My jaw feels tight and tense, which is normally what happens when I really stress out but I don't feel mentally or emotionally stressed. I have a tingling sensation in my cheeks and it feels like the whole of my face is tense. I've been waking up at around 4 and 5am each morning for no reason and can't get back to sleep.

The cyst in my wrist has stayed at the sane level (very, very small after having risen the other day when I mentioned it to you) and there is very little pain now and then.

I suppose I have to ride this wave and it will get better soon?

This is 3 days after the last dose. That is usually when you see a peak in the aggravation (usually 3-5 days later). It appears that many of your symptoms have now aggravated yes?

These symptoms didn't aggravate the first time did they?

Hehe! Indeed, the physical symptoms have arrived with guns blazing. These symptoms didn't arise in the last week or two. I have just woken up with yesterday's migraine and the same symptoms. I recall this happening to me late last year when I took silica 30c. The migraine went on for days and nothing could get rid of it. I have previously suffered with migraines in general and gelsemium would normally get rid of it when all the drugs on the planet couldn't. I guess we'll wait and see where I go from here. It's very unpleasant but at least we know that it's working somehow.
