Chronic insomnia with dreams of death, violence - please help

Hello,

I am seeking help for my boyfriend, who has had insomnia for 30 years. He has never taken any medication or herbs, and prefers to allow his body to heal naturally. However, his chronic insomnia has become increasingly draining over the years.

The insomnia started when he as in college and could not get his mind to 'turn off' after studying. He still has a problem getting his mind to 'turn off' about work and life troubles.

When he does sleep, he often dreams about his own death, or his dreams are violent. Sometimes people are shooting at him.

Additionally, he gets up several times at night to urinate.

He has also suffered from back pain around the same time his insomnia started in college. He has a compressed disc in his back, which causes him pain while sleeping.

Over the years, he has developed constipation that results in watery diahhrea with bright red blood.

Six months ago, he also developed a hernia on his right side. About a month ago, he started experiencing pain in his right knee. He has to keep the knee straight, as it hurts to bend it. He also limps when he walks because of the knee.

He is bossy and controlling. He wants everything done his way and is very concerned with details and doing things perfectly. He considers himself a 'realist'. He enjoys solitude and is a 'loner' but has no fear of people or public places.

He has a great sex drive and is very active, walking or running several miles a day.

He prefers being outside, enjoys the sun and fresh air.

He had a stern father who never offered praise and was also bossy and controlling. Never felt that he was accepted by father.

Very kind and empathetic towards animals and people who are frail. Very patient.

Thank you for any help offered.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Is he willing to give his case here? I assume he knows you are seeking advice from a homoeopath for him?

Hey Brian,

May God bless you.

Please describe your hernia in detail. What is the exact location?

So, once you are angry what do you do?
 
nawazkhan 8 years ago
Please get hold of Bryonia 200c and Nux Vomica 200C asap.
 
nawazkhan 8 years ago
The hernia is in the abdomen on the right side. I believe I got it from lifting a very heavy object, and it began protruding more over the months. I try to hold it in. I have been advised that I need surgery, but I will not go through surgery because of cost and because I believe my body has the ability to heal in time.

When I am angry, I try to think of the good things I have in my life- my family, that I live in safety and comfort compared to many places in the world. I also try to distract myself with work.

Thank you greatly for your help. How should I take the bryonia and nux vomica? I will have to order them- locally remedies are sold in low potencies only.
