Thanks again.

May God bless all mankind with his peace and mercy.

Thank you for the details. I dont see any critical errors on your diet, except the coffee and tea. These drinks weaken the digestive system, esp if you already have trouble. I know it is a hard habit to break. Please try to reduce it and substitute with other nutritiours drinks (complan for example).

Please take DIOSCOREA 6, 4 tablets, 30 minutes before each food. If this is not a convenient time for you, you can take 30 minutes to 1 hour after food.

I suggest you buy DIOSCOREA 6 and also 30 in 'pellets'. Mashaan Homeo Pharmacy seems to carry good medicines. You will start with Dioscorea 6 only for now.

Please read my Profile for general instructions.

With our Prayers,

Hello Doctor

Good day,

I observed some improvements on my appetite, Im eating more nowadays, but there is no change with my bowel movement.

Untolerable pain due to muscle spasm on my neck, lower back, and thigh areas. Past 4/5 days, Im having dry cough, just want to check you if this is by the medicine.

Thank You and God Bless You.

I would not expect any pain increase cough due to Dioscorea 6.

Still, I would recommend to stop Dioscorea now and see whether you get better. For dry cough, you can take Bryonia 30, 4 pellters, once or twice a day. This should also help with other pain.

You can buy Arnica 30 and Spigelia 30 when you go to stores. After cough gets better, I will recommend these two medicines to address your spondalities.

Please lrt me know after a couple of days.

Thank You Doctor. I will follow the same. Noticed there are 2 medicines starting with Spigelia. Could you pls advise me on this.

Thank You again God Bless You,

SPIGELIA ANTHELMIA is the full name.

As requested in my profile, please stop taking the medicine and write back, if there is any difference noticed after taking the medicine.

For your cough, Bryonia is optional. If it goes off itself, you dont have to take any medicine.

After you are good with cough, take ARNICA 30, every morning, 4 pellets for 7 days and write back.

Hello Doctor,

I have not yet started with Arnica as of now. All of a sudden I got some viral infection and was taking allopathic medicine for that. Most probably I will start by tomorrow, just I was waiting before starting with Arnica.

I will update you soon

Thank you

Hello Doctor

I have completed one week course of Arnica 30.

Stomach problems look better to me whereas neck and back pain and spasms have no improvement.

Please let me know when I have to start the other medicine (Spigelia Anthelmia)

Thank You and God bless you
