constant flu -like symptoms

Hello everyone,

I am looking for advice on how to deal with what I believe to be constant flu-like symptoms.This usually consists of....
trembling all over
pressure in my sinuses
feelings of my heart beat through my body
red eyes in the evenings
slight dizziness and unsteadyness
headaches at night and upon waking
anxiety at night
sweating during sleep even though my skin is cold.

The thing that bothers me the most is the trembling and the feeling of my pulse through my head and body.I have had this problem for a very long time.I have been to the doctors a few times and they always tell me it's a virus that never seems to go away or that I keep catching them.
I have had various ailments for which I have taken homeopathic medicines recently and for some reason,I have developed eczema patches on my arms and whenever my hands get wet the palms and finger tips become white and patchy,really strange like snow.Does anyone know why this happens?

I would be very grateful if anyone with homeopathic knowledge could shed some light on this topic.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
A flu is very short lived usually 3 or 5 days. I shall be glad to help you but you will have to provide answers to the following points:

How old are you ?
When did you first notice your problem and what have you done about it ?
What drugs were you prescribed and what are you taking right now ?
What are your eating habits and also your drinking habits especially alcohol ?
Do you do any exercise ?

I would like you to start with Arnica 6c taken in the Split Dose as follows:

Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from your nearest supermarket.
Pour out 100ml
Drop in 3 pellets or 1 drop of liquid Arnica 6c into the 400ml water
Cap the bottle tightly and succuss it 4-6 times by banging on your palm and look out for the air bubbles to fizzle up from the bottom.
Pour out 1 teaspoonful of the potentized remedy into half a cup of water and stir it gently.
Sip just 1 teaspoonful of the water from the cup shortly before sleep.

Please note that the water in the cup should be used almost immediately as it seems to lose its effectiveness if kept over and used to promote sleep the following night. The procedure must be repeated again before sleep, the night after but the water in the cup can be used by more than one person if they wish to also enjoy deep sleep.

I am 29 years old and I have had dizzyness and slight unsteadyness for years,I am prone to catching colds quite often.The trembling started in feb I think when I had labyrinthitis.
jayjay last decade
I hit the post button accident,
so to continue........I haven't taken anything for those problems as such because the doctors told me that it was viral.
I must admit that I have only started eating well recently in the last couple of months.For years I would sometimes only have one meal a day and the job I am doing involves a lot of lifting.I never used to eat veg,I don't drink alcohol and don't smoke.

Before I posted,I was reading my book on homeopathy trying to find my match and gelsemium did seem to match me the most.Should I give it a try? Please advise...

I would like to treat your lack of resistance to colds with Bacillinum 200. This is a remedy that can only be taken strictly as follows when you are not having any symptoms of any flu, cold or other ailment.

Take 4 globules Bacillinum under the tongue 2 hours after or before a meal under the tongue.

Repeat the dose in 2 weeks which will act as a booster. You will discover that your resistance to colds will be increased.

If however you get the feeling of a cold coming on you should use Ferr Phos 30x tablets Dose 2 tablets every 2 hours till the coldy feeling leaves you. After it dose leave you it is necessary that you take 3 doses of the same remedy the day after to ensure that the virus which will by that time be dormant does not stage a come back.

I used Gelsemium many years ago but discovered that Ferr Phos 30x is far better as it also provides long term resistance. Gels will stop the coryza when you are catching a cold in about 10 minutes. It is an amazing remedy.

You have not complained of being subjected to any throat infection but I shall in any case give you the remedy for it. Use Belladonna 30c dose 3 globules taken 4 times a day when you first get any tickling in the throat.

I believe that the dizziness and your eczema and your headaches will disappear with the Arnica 6c Split Dose. This is truly a remedy that I consider my Miracle Remedy and I have used it in cases that defy any other remedy and it has worked the miracle.

I hope that it will also work the miracle for you. I shall expect you to keep me posted with your response on this forum weekly.

Thank you for the advice and I will try the arnica first and get back to you.I forgot to mention that I always have redness at the back of my mouth which a homeopath told me was an infection,and that I suffer from allergies.Sometimes my throat feels like it is collapsing,really irritated as if there is something stuck in there.And one doctor was suprised at how big my tonsils were.

I will report back soon.

I have tried the arnica remedy but to no avail.Then I tried the ferrum phos for a week but also still no improvement.But the reason I think they didn't work was because I am convince that I am suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.My symptoms are the same as described in the homeopathy book by doctor Lockie and doctor Geddes.So I have taken the books advise which was kali phos 30c twice a day for 14 days.
I have been taken it for two days and my symptoms have returned to how they were in the begining 6 months ago.My question is,is this a sign that I have the right remedy?

p.s my eczema has almost completely gone.
jayjay last decade
You have stated that the Arnica did not help you at all. You also state in your PS that your Eczema has almost completely gone.

Please note that it is the Arnica that helped you and in your own interest I would like you to keep on taking it daily as you are now doing. It can only help you.

Stop the Ferr phos (I hope you took the 30x).

Start using Gelsemium 30 in the same manner you are using the Arnica twice daily. Keep an hour between remedies but take the Arnica last thing at night.

Report in a week.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thank you for replying so soon,
I only used the arnica for 2 nights which was done over a week ago.I am suprised that it helped my eczema so quickly,I have no irritation at all.My main problems are those listed as having chronic fatigue syndrome so should I stop taking the kali phos and return to the arnica and gelsemium?
I only have gelsemium 6c at present.
jayjay last decade
Thank you for confirming that Arnica helped you. I must admit that even I am surprised that it cured your Eczema after use on only 2 nights.

This is about the fastest cure that has been reported to me and I believe that this is due to the Split Dose method that I advised where you take a tsp from the bottle and dilute it in half cup of water from which you sip a tsp.

This only confirms my belief that Arnica is truly a Miracle Remedy.

You may use the Gels 6c in the same manner that you used the Arnica 6c.
Joe De Livera last decade
How long can you keep the split dose solutions before it become useless?
jayjay last decade
The Split dose in the cup is good for about 3 hours after which time it seems to lose its efficacy. You can however share the Arnica with others who may like to enjoy deep sleep which can help them like a tonic the day after when they will feel the difference in their attitude.

I know that it may seem to be a bother going through this ritual daily but you have seen that it works and it is a small price to pay for your cure.

You may however experiment with sipping the tsp direct from the bottle without the half cup water. If it has the same effect you can stop the half cup water mix and take it direct from the bottle after succussion.

I would like to know your response to catching colds and your coryza in a few days after the Gels takes effect.
Joe De Livera last decade
I have tried gelsemium for a week and there has been no change in my condition,so I think gels is not for me.I am not sure if the weather is making me feel worse because it has been very humid and sticky and I know other people who have complained of dizziness and headaches recently.
I definatley have chronic fatigue syndrome which causes me to tremble and fell dizzy,tired and my sinuses are bothering me.
Also ,my right eye lid has been twitching for two weeks.
Does anyone have any suggestions that can help?
jayjay last decade
I would like you to use Causticum 6c in the Wet Dose where you sip a teaspoonful direct from the bottle twice daily.

Stop other remedies and report in a week.

I would not like to prescribe for your eye as I would prefer to help your Rhinitis.
Joe De Livera last decade

Don't lose hope. I see you have been posting about this for 3+ months. I have CFS (aka Post Viral Immuno Dysfunction Syndrome) too. I am not a homeopathic practioner, and I won't make an remedy recommendations, but I do know that some of the symptoms that often come with this include feelings of anxiety about your illness and dispair. I am working with a practioner and seeing much improvement. Be very forthcoming when describing what's going on, including your mental state, and other things that may seem insignificant to you, but come time mind when thinking about your condition... the more holistic the picture you provide the better the homeopaths will be able to match you to your remedy. Chronic issues take some time and experimentation.

Peace to you and yours,

Thanks Rebecca for the advise and to mention what my mind state is like I would say that I have become very upset and angry lately.I am trying not to give up.Also I have become very jumpy around spiders.I even dream about them.I just dont get that at all.The problem with my eye is the nerves in the right lid,it keeps on jumping making me rub it all the time.I feel totally wasted.
