The ABC Homeopathy Forum

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.


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

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

Kind regards,

pheazoid last decade
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?

pheazoid last decade
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 last decade
I have taken one dose now as directed. When shall I report back to you?
pheazoid last decade
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 last decade
Is the ammonium carb for my difficulty in breathing? I'm not sure what this remedy is for.
pheazoid last decade
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.

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).

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.
pheazoid last decade
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.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
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.
pheazoid last decade
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.
pheazoid last decade
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 :)
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Thank you so much David :) I will do that!

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?
pheazoid last decade
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?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
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.
