Aggravation Advice Needed

Long story short: I have been taking Calcara Carbonica 30c, 5 pellets a day for about ten days for a chronic condition. It seemed to have helped me a great deal and I have seen a lot of significant improvements in that time, but now I have a sore throat that I did not have before. Just before the sore throat I had the feeling that I should decrease the dosage and took only 4 pellets, 1-2 times for the last few days but the sore throat has come and gone since that time. I don't know if that means I should stop taking it altogether or just reduce the dosage or do the antidote thing or what. I've tried to find the answer online, but I am unable to at this time. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Back Story: I am recovering from a mild traumatic brain injury that I received in July 2010. The first six months after the auto accident I was in that caused the injury, my cognitive functioning declined a great deal and I was on bed rest and most of my muscles atrophied due to being in severe pain. My neurologist discovered that this was caused by increased intracranial pressure, which was relieved in a procedure called a spinal tap. Before the injury, I was considered 'higher functioning' and was a hyper-active, over-achiever powerhouse working one full time job and about three part time jobs, an average of 60-80 hours a week and had done so regularly for about 15 years. After the injury I was unable to work or drive at all for a little over a year and even now, 19 months later, I am restricted by my Dr. from driving on the freeway due to my cognitive functioning level and I am only able to work 20 hours a week. (I started working again in Aug for 12 hours a week and tried several times to increase to 20, but was unable to successfully until December. We are hoping I will be able to increase to 30 hours a week in April.)

I have been taking many different supplements and doing a lot of research on what I can do in an effort to improve my cognitive functioning.

Since I was unable to work for over a year, I owe a lot of money to many different sources at this time. Basically, for the first time since I graduated from college, I am struggling financially and I have not been to see a homeopath in my area because I am broke and still seeing a lot of other practitioners and dealing with a lot of other expenses.

I found a few articles that indicated that homeopathy could help me to recover. My own neurologist has noticed that I have had a lot of serious and adverse reactions to Western medication and recommended that I try homeopathy about a year ago, but I was not doing well enough cognitively to understand what she meant. About two months ago I learned a little about homeopathy while doing research online and decided to give it a go.

Since I had been dealing with this condition for a year a half, I decided that the condition I am dealing with is chronic. Even though I had improved a great deal in that time, I am very impatient to improve more and faster. After much consideration I decided to try Calcara Carbonica 6c, 2-3 times a day for 5-6 days and I noticed an ever so slight improvement. I waited about two weeks during which time I took no homeopathic cures. Then I began the 30c course that I wrote about above in the first paragraph.

I am also taking a lot of supplements and have been for months. Basically, I am taking: multi-vitamin, B complex, additional B12 on the advice of my neurologist, Phosphatidylserine, CDP Choline, Omega Acids, BCAA's and I'm about to start taking krill oil too.

I have noticed some wonderful, distinct and significant improvements after starting to take the Calcara Carbonica 30C.

I would like to continue to see more improvements and at this point, I *do* think the homeopathic cures have helped me and I don't want to thwart them if I can help it.

I realize I was lucky in discerning the right cure for me... but in my defense I did an awful lot of research about it. But I feel like I am at a crux and need to know how to proceed in a timely manner and I'm just not educated enough to do so and I'm dealing with very limited personal energy resources.

Many thanks to anyone who offers help!!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
stop taking it until someone tells
you what to do who is qualified.

Otherwise you may start having
aggravation from taking too much.

Too much repetition is being done. It is very important to let the body respond to a carefully selected dose of the homeopathic remedy before dosing again. It is instructive to remember that we are only 'stimulating' the vital force into responding to a remedy through a dose, and over-stimulation through unnecessary dosing when the response is going very well can derail or delay the curative process.

If I were you, I would not take any more doses of 30c, and just wait and watch for a couple of weeks.

Thank you both very much!

I am unable to see someone who is qualified as I explained in the post above.

I have stopped taking the Calcara Carbonica.

Hi what I meant was someone who
is 'qualified'on the ABC and is
a Dr. or homeopath or both. You click on
the person who is posting- and their
profile will show up.

Sameer vermani is a homeopath-
he is 'qualified' to give you advice
on next dose etc after you wait for 2 weeks.

I am not a dr. or homeopath but
I am studying homeopathy and
have been a patient of several
'live' homeopaths for 14 years
and used the acute homeopathy kit
for most of my childrens medical needs.

Since I stopped taking the Calcium Carbonica a week ago, I seem to be degrading cognitively.

I really think it was helping me a great deal.

Does anyone have any additional advice at this point?

Hi-I think since Sameer Vermani
gave you the advice and
he is very qualified you should
post a New thread and say
Sameer need advice on dosing of
cali carb-

ask him in the thread to take your
case and mention the aggravation advice
needed thread.

I think what the protocol would be
is to take a wet dose of the cali
carb 30c and then wait and see
how long it lasts or perhaps he
would have you go up to the 200C
doing a wet dose and see how long
that lasts, after that you go to 1m
if needed and see how long that works,
and if it is still working and it is
your real constitutional remedy
then sometimes people go onto
the low LM dosing which is very low
dosing levels and they go up also
but you can take them everyday.

The point is to see what level of
this remedy still works, at
different potencies-
so Please ask for him bc he is
trained homeopath and knows
how to do this right.

Thank you so much - I'll start a new thread and ask for him.
