sepia aggravation??

my homeopath started me on sepia 30c diluted in water, 1 teaspoon every other day, succused twice, as i was going thru severe anxiety and overwhelmed as a mother and wife. i felt it helped with my emotional well-being...i was able to get my mind back on track and not feel so anxious, however, each time i take it i have bad ovarian pains, like someone is squeezing my ovaries. she told me to cut down to sepia 6c, which i did tonite, but still have the pains. could this be an aggravation and is it possible for it to work emotionally and mentally, but give me physical pain at the same time? i do have a history of ovarian cysts, particularly the right side, had an 8 cm cyst removed 3 years ago. thank you!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
There is a basic principle in homoeopathy called the Direction of Cure, which guides us in knowing whether a remedy is acting curatively or not.

Simply put, cure tends to move from within out, from more important locations to less important,from the centre to the periphery, from top to bottom.

Disease on the other hand tends to move from the outside in, from less important locations to more important ones, from the edges to the middle, and from the bottom to the top.

Over the years homoeopaths have established a hierarchy within the body, within the person, to help us determine if a person is improving.

Sometimes this is easy - a symptom moving from the skin to the brain is the wrong direction, while a symptom moving from the heart to the gut is the right direction (as examples).

The basic hierarchy is (from most important):

Vital Force (life energy)
Mind
Emotion
Physical
Pathology

Each of these levels has multiple levels inside of it again put in order of importance.

If you experience relief in the mental level, with aggravation on the physical level, generally speaking this is the right direction.

However, the aggravation could also be because of a too large dose. The remedy might need to be diluted further - I would complain to the homoeopath about the aggravation and ask them to adjust the dose so that it doesn't happen.

thank you so much...what further dilution would you recommend?

This is my standard dose.

Bottle of alcohol/water with 2 pillules dissolved into it is used to make each dose.

The bottle is hit firmly against the palm of the hand twice only, before each dose is made (This is IMPORTANT - if it is not being done this is a problem, a serious one).

1 drop is taken out of that bottle and placed in 60, 125 or 250ml of water (I make that decision based on their apparent sensitivity or history of reactions to homoeopathy), stirred thoroughly and 1 teaspoon taken in to the mouth.

If even 1 drop in 250ml is too strong for the patient, I ask them to take that teaspoon out of the cup, and place it in another 60/125/250 mls of water, stirred and another teaspoon taken out into the mouth.

This can actually be done many times. I have a small number of patients who need to dilute their remedies into 5 separate cups.

This is all about the SIZE of the dose in homoeopathy, and it is vital to managing the cure of a patient.
