Weight Gain after taking Coffea Cruda

About 6 months ago I took approx 200c of Coffea Cruda(Boiron) each night for about 2 weeks to help me sleep. It kind of helped me a bit but I think I took too much because it seems to have changed my metabolism. Shortly after taking it I started gaining weight( 7 ounds) very suddenly. I used to be Hypoglemic but not anymore. Whatever I do I cannot get rid of this weight. Even if I eat virtually nothing all day the weight doesn't change. It feels like bloating around the abdomen. Can anyoe suggest anyway of reversing Coffea Cruda. Is there any antidote for this situation?
Thanks Julie

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It is good to know that there exists a remedy that will actually help one to add to one's weight. Stop taking it and you will notice that it will stop reacting with you. I do not think that it is necessary to actively antidote it.

As you perhaps are aware if you have been on this forum for some time, I have been promoting the use of Nat Phos 6x for the reduction of weight at a minimum rate of about 0.5kg per week upwards. Dose 2 tablets taken after lunch and dinner.

Arnica 6c will help you to sleep deeply and I believe that it is far better than Coffea C 200c. I am not surprised that it has wrecked your metabolism as you cannot take it in this potency other than for a day or two and that only if your ailment is acute.

If you decide to use Arnica 6c for insomnia, you should use the water dose which you can read about on this forum as I have detailed it many times.

Thanks for your reply. I stopped taking Coffea Cruda about 5 months ago and the weight hasn't come off. I'll try your suggestion of Nat Phos after meals and Arnica at night. But everything I read about Homeopathy suggests that when you stop taking a remedy any negative side effects should stop but this doesn't seem to be the case.

Hi Joe

I started taking Nat Phos 6x as you suggested and it does indeed help reduce weight. However as soon as I stop taking it the weight goes straight back on. Do you know of a remedy that can antidote the Coffea Cruda that I took 8 months ago becasue my metabolism has changed which is the underlying problem. Is there an antidote? Camphora?

Thanks for your help

Nat Phos 6x will usually help to reduce your weight by at least 1 pound per week. However if you stop taking it and especially if you overeat your weight will obviously be replaced.

I discovered this Biochemic remedy quite accidentally last year when I gave it to a patient who was having GERD and he responded with losing weight which I later spread throughout the world on this and other forums last Christmas day.

I have discovered that this is easily the most effective remedy to reduce weight safely and I have many who have brought their weight down by about 10kg and are now comfortable with their weight who take 1 tablet after both lunch and dinner to keep their weight constant.

You can use this same therapy.

I do not think you have to bother with antidoting any remedy as the activity of a remedy in your body is usually lost after a week.

Is Coffea Cruda the same as Caffeinum ? Does anyone know. I won't want to take that if it inhibits weight loss.

Thank You,

Coffea Cruda is not the same as Caffeinum.
Coffea Cruda is a prominent remedy for sleep disorders, but you took it too high and for too long.
Homeopathy should not be used for weight loss, that is not how it is used. It is used to heal the whole person, not be a quick fix for a weight problem.
You can antidote a remedy with Nux Vomica.
High potencies should not be used by the uninitiated, Homeopathy is not easy to understand, and the high potencies should only be used with a expert Classical Homeopaths help.

I know this is an old post but I wanted to reply to it. If you have problems sleeping or with insomnia chances are it's your night time cortisol level rising. If you do some research on cortisol you will find it is a big contributor to weight gain especially around the middle. It makes it very hard to lose weight if not impossible. Cortisol will keep you up at night and also wake you in the middle of the night. Sometimes the same time every night. Cortisol will rise due to stress levels.

I m suffering the same with coffea. If i dont take it I cant sleep and as soon as i take it within 2 days scale goes up and theres bloating. I hv a huge issue with insomnia, nerve tingling and gerd..In spite of being in sports im unable lose weight. If i take nat phos and arnica 30c wet dose as Joe says, my insomnia does not solve and its either kali phos or Mostly coffea tht gives me weight. HELP
