Have you used homeopathic medicines before? If so what, and what homeopathic potencies did you use?

yes. I've tried calcarea sulphurica last month. i tried at 6C for 3 weeks. Then at 30C for 1 week. It did not help with acne. But it helped a lot with my stutter/stammer. My speech was better and I could pick better words to say. It also helped reduce the white coating at the trunk of my tongue. It also gave me an increased appetite especially for bread and sweets.



Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering?
Acne ( jaw line, chin, cheeks), hair loss, eczema, and severe lower left pelvic pain during 2nd/3rd day of menstruation (doctors think it could be endometriosis)

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
Speech - Stuttering ( not as much after calcarea sulphurica)
Dandruff/Seborrhea
Scalp - stinging burning feeling on top right side.
Scalp - smelling a little like fungus.
thread veins on upper thighs
Cellulite, stretch marks
lower back pain ( herniated disks)
frequent cold sores on face
tonsil stones ( better after calcarea sulphurica)
Lack of energy - tiredness


3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
Procrastination/lack of motivation/unable to get work done
Forgetfulness/Lack of concentration
Feeling rushed/hurried/never enough time
Messy/Unorganized


4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.
I feel lots of pain on the left side of my pelvis when I’m on the 2nd day of my period. It's a tearing pain. I almost faint from the pain. I feel frustrated and upset that this is happening. I wonder how long I'm going to suffer. I feel frustrated and helpless that I can’t solve my help problems and that doctors are not helping. I feel angry that the doctors are not able to help. These problems also make me feel unattractive and sometimes sad for myself. I feel insecure.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
Yes. It started at 23 years old after a traumatic event. At 23 when the Hair Salon damaged my hair and made it ugly, it upset me so much I cried, and couldn’t eat for several days. I was in shock. I was very upset and traumatized by this experience. I did not want to be seen. Soon after my hair started falling out. Which made me even more upset and depressed. I went to several doctors who couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. Which made me more upset, frustrated, helpless and angry. About 6 months after my hair started falling out I began experiencing burning and stinging sensation on my scalp, which was VERY painful. 6 months after the burning/stinging scalp I started having dandruff and it turned into seborrhea where I had thick greasy flakes, and even more hair fell out. No doctor was able to help me. I was so upset I lost my appetite and started to lose weight. I lost about 40 pounds in 1 year ( I used to weight 160-165 pounds) . I became very forgetful, tired and not able to concentrate. I also started developing eczema on my body.
I also had a stomach infection ( H. Pylori) which was treated with antibiotics.
I did some research on the internet of my symptoms, and started taking supplements ( B complex & minerals, copper) and that helped improve my dandruff and hair loss by 90%. It cured my eczema. But if I stop taking vitamins, the eczema and hair loss and dandruff and forgetfulness come back. Now in the fall and winter time even if I take vitamins I still get a little more dandruff and eczema on my nipples (mostly right nipple).
Also about 1-2 years after my hair started falling out, and I started taking vitamins, my menstruation changed. It changed from 28-29 day cycle to 23-35 day cycle. My periods became heavier and I started experiencing severe pain on the left side of my pelvic area. The pain only stays during 2-3rd days of the period. The pain has gotten so severe in the past year, that I have to take Apap/codene for pain during the 2st day of my period. And sometimes the pain killer doesn’t even help.
Initially vitamins helped my acne, but now the vitamins are not helping so much and my acne has moved to my jaw line and upper neck. And it’s cystic and painful. Also taking Calcarea Sulphurica did not really help my acne, but it did help my speech a lot. It reduced stuttering and made me better able to pick the right words to say. I also noticed increased appetite for bread and sweets with Calcarea Sulphurica.
I have also been grinding and clenching my teeth at night ever since I was a teenager. My dentist says it’s from stress. ( I don’t grind my teeth much now). Also at the recommendation of my dentist ( about 2 years ago), I went to a chiropractor to help me with adjusting my back to help my jaw from grinding. My chiropractor did a bad job and I ended up with severe back and neck pain. I had an MRI done and it turns out that he gave me 4 herniated disks ( 2 in my neck & 2 in my lower back). I was in a lot of pain for about 1 year. I couldn’t sit for long periods of time or lay in bed because my back would hurt and get sore. In the past 6 months my back has gotten much better.
I also seem to fidget and move around a lot. Even when I’m sitting down I’m always readjusting my body or moving my head and looking in every direction so that I can see everything. I also have trouble going to bed on time and stay up late and don't get enough sleep/

( I also used to have a lot of fear, anxiety and depression from 19 – 23 years old). I have trouble showing people affection. I hide a lot of things about myself from people and even my family. I don’t like them knowing my weaknesses. What other people say or think of me affects me greatly.
I also have a very strained relationship with my mother. She is very overprotective, overbearing, critical, and judgmental. She lectures me all the time and tries to start arguments with me. I always end up fighting with her or lose my temper. Daydreaming and fantasizing all the time. Imagining being better more powerful than I am. Imagining I had more talents and that I was impressed people. Imagine myself beautiful and healthy.

I also move my hands a lot (rapidly and quickly) when I speak. I also move around a lot and fidget even when I sit.
I also talk or smile to myself sometimes when I'm daydreaming or fantasizing.

I'm afraid of not being liked by people.
Sometimes i dream like i'm in school and I have a test or homework assignment due, and I'm late or been procrastinating and I have a little time to get my work done or I will fail the class. I also dream about strange little creatures that have the potential of attacking or harming me.

I have been taking Calcarea Sulphurica ( for 1 month and now I stopped) for the acne ( self prescribed)
I’m taking digestive enzymes to help with digestion.

1. This pain you feel during menstruation can you describe it a little more? Is there anything you can do to relieve this pain? Is there anything that makes it worse?

The pain feels like tearing, twisting and pulling. It's constant but it also comes in spasms where the pain gets very severe then it becomes a little less.

2. Dandruff, what color?
White color.


3. Where is this eczema located? And how it looks. Is there a lot of itching, burning? Please describe. Eczema is on the right and left side of my body below the armpits. And on both nipples. After taking vitamins, the eczema is reduced and is now only on my right nipple.

In the middle of the night I usually uncover my feet because they get too warm.

Dear Miss Anna.

It's clear to me that you need 2-3 different homeopathic remedies.
Ignatia, and possibly Sepia and Sulphur. At least at this point.

You should start with Ignatia amara, 200C. This medication should be good for the emotional and menstrual pain. Not impossible for other things as well.

That said, you start with 200C, one dose. After this dose, wait a few days. 4-5.
Do you use pills, you take 3.
Granules, tiny pills, then you can take 8-10.
Pour them into the lid of the container, then straight into the mouth. Let them melt under your tongue, then you can swallow.

Ignatia should be taken in the morning, at least half an hour before food. Please do not drink coffee or anything with caffeine.
Not impossible that you need 1M later. (Your mother should take this medication as well.)

Please give me a report after these days, or sooner, if something special happens.

Good luck, and it's just to ask if you have any questions.

Sincerely, Parakletos.
