Severe acidity

I'm suffering from following problems :
1) Frequent sneezing and cold since last 5 years. Sometimes I feel shortness of breath. My nose gets blocked. Sometimes water start coming out of nose.

2) Acidity, pain in abdomen and food reflux since last 3 years. 3 years back endoscopy revealed PAN gastritis (but no ulcer) and H-pylori infection. I had taken antibiotics for H-pylori. Six months back, endoscopy revealed no H-pylori and no problem in stomach. But the food reflux and acid symptoms were still present
I've take lots of allopathic medicines but of no help. Since last few months, I've been taking homeopathic medicines after consulting a homeopathic doctor. The frequency of sneeze and cold attacks have reduced.

But still I face shortness of breath and severe acidity. Two days back, I was having sever cutting pain in stomach and severe heartburn when somebody advised me to take Carbo-Veg. I took carbo veg 200 for two times yesterday and got very good results. My acidity symptoms have reduced a lot.
Should I continue taking this medicine and in what frequency and what potency. My doctor is out of twon for few days. Kindly advice me.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Nat Phos 6x will help your problem. Dose 2 tablets taken after lunch and dinner. I have found that this remedy is far more effective to help with Gastric reflux conditions than the Carbo Veg that you have used. You will notice after taking this remedy regularly for a week your stomach will gradually be able to digest food without its constant use.

You have also indicated that you catch colds frequently and that you sneeze. This may indicate catarrh. Do you also have a wheeze ?

Start on the Nat Phos 6x ASAP and reply my queries about your other problems for a solution.

Where do you live ?

Homeopathy just does not work in the manner that you have used it. You have exceeded the dosage by 100%. You should have had some warning signs of this overdosage by losing your appetite and also having a bad taste in your mouth always with copious salivation.

In Homeopathy small is beautiful. The dose you must not exceed is just 2 tablets taken after both lunch and dinner.

Let me know your response after you change over to this dosage in a few days.

Have you checked for Ameobiasis ?
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanx Joe for your reply. I took medicine as prescribed by my doctor. Should I change my homeopath?
Yes, you are right. The warning signs of overdosage are evident. I now have severe burning sensation which I didn't used to have. Also, a cutting pain and constipation also.
I will try the dosage as adviced by you and will keep you informed.

Also, I've not checked myself for ameobiasis. What is this?

I am copying an article from the Merck Manual on this topic which may be of interest to the members of this forum


Amebiasis is an infection of the large intestine or other organs caused bythe single-celled parasite Entamoeba histolytica.
Amebiasis is relatively common in areas where sanitation is poor and fecal contamination of food and water occurs. It can also be acquired through certain sexual practices. Entamoeba histolytica initially infects the intestine, although it sometimes reaches other organs, such as the liver. Amebic infections are common in Latin America, Africa, and the Indian subcontinent.
Entamoeba histolytica exists in two forms: as an active parasite (trophozoite) and as a dormant parasite (cyst). Infection begins when cysts are swallowed. The cysts hatch, releasing trophozoitesthat multiply, cause ulcers on the lining of the intestine, and produce diarrhea. Some of the trophozoites form cysts, which are excreted in the feces along with trophozoites. Outside the body, the fragile trophozoites die, but the cysts are hardy. Cysts can be spread directly from person to person or indirectly through food or water.
In places with poor sanitation, transmission of amebiasis occurs through ingestion of fecally contaminated food or water. Fruits and vegetables may be contaminated when grown in soil fertilized by human stool, washed in polluted water, or prepared by someone who is infected. Amebiasis also may occur and spread in places with proper sanitation if incontinence and poor hygiene are present (for example, day care centers, or mental institutions). Amebiasis can be spread by sexual contact.
Only a few people infected with Entamoeba species develop symptoms. In the United States, most cases of symptomatic amebiasis occur among immigrants and, less commonly, people who have traveled to developing countries.
Infected people who develop symptoms typically have intermittent diarrhea, increased gas (flatulence), and cramping abdominal pain. In more severe cases, the abdomen is tender when touched, and the stool contains mucus and blood. The person may also have a fever. Wasting of the body (emaciation) and anemia can occur in people with chronic infection. Sometimes a large lump (ameboma) forms and blocks the intestine. Occasionally, the trophozoites perforate the intestinal wall and enter the abdominal cavity, causing severe abdominal pain and an abdominal infection (peritonitis) that requires immediate medical attention.
In some people, Entamoeba histolytica forms an abscess in the liver. Symptoms include fever, sweats, chills, weakness, weight loss, and pain or discomfort in the area over the liver.
Occasionally, Entamoeba histolytica spreads to other organs (including the lungs or brain). The skin may also become infected, especially around the buttocks, genitals, or wounds caused by abdominal surgery or injury.
To diagnose amebiasis, a doctor collects stool samples for analysis. Three samples may be needed to make the diagnosis. A flexible tube (colonoscope) may be used to look inside the large intestine and to obtain a tissue sample if any ulcers are found there.


It can be difficult for a doctor to diagnose amebiasis when the disease spreads to sites outside the intestine (such as the liver), because the parasites may no longer be present in the stool. Ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) scans can be performed to confirm an abscess in the liver, but these tests do not indicate the cause. Blood tests for antibodies to the amebas may be helpful. Sometimes, doctors who suspect that a person has an amebic liver abscess simply try antiamebic drugs to see if they work. A positive response confirms the diagnosis.
A person with symptomatic amebiasis involving the intestinal tract, or amebiasis that occurs in the liver or elsewhere outside the intestine, is given the antiamebic drug metronidazole. Nausea and vomiting develop if people taking metronidazole drink alcohol.
Metronidazole does not always kill cysts that are in the stool. Several drugs (such as iodoquinol, paromomycin, and diloxanide) can be used to kill the cysts in the stool.

I did undergo a stool examination a month back (had similar symptoms at that time) and no abnormality was detected. However, report mentioned bacterias are present. But my doctor told me that these bacterias are present even in normal person. Also, I went through biopsy when I got myself checked for H-pylori. Shouldn't it get detected at that point of time?. Also, I've taken lots of antibiotics and medicines for worms and parasites as presecribed by my allopathic doctor but of no help.

Since you have already undergone treatment with many antibiotics I would like you to take an antiamebic drug in order to eliminate any possible infection that you may have from amoebiasis has not been identified in the various tests.

I have come across similar cases in the past where there was no positive evidence of any infection which cleared up all symptoms after using the antiamebic drug.

My advice to you is to use any one of the antiamebic drugs listed in my copy from the Merck manual preferably after consulting your doctor who will indicate the dosage.

I prefer not to indicate the Homeopathic remedy as I am not certain that it can eradicate an acute case of Amoebiasis which is what I believe you are suffering from.
Joe De Livera last decade

I undergo a stool examination and no amoebiasis infection was detected. Everything is normal.
Let me know what should i do.
mshaved last decade
As I stated before amoebiasis is not an ailment that can be diagnosed positively by testing the stools.

The best method of treating you is to eliminate amoebiasis and my advice to you is to consult your doctor and take any one of the drugs that are indicated in my previous post.
