Anacardium with Lycopodium

I have done some online reading, was put onto homeopathic remedies from an interview I read read.. It seems like anacardium and lycopodium can be the best remedies for my situation. Is it advisable to take both at once? Will there be contradiction? Thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
No, take one remedy at a time to see what the effect
on you is. If you are self prescribing for a chronic
condition, this is not advisable at all. You have to
know potency and how to dose, everyone is different,
and even homeopaths have other homeopaths prescribe
for them bc no one is neutral enough to impartially
observe all their symptoms.

You need someone to supervise you.

If you put your case here, i willbe able to tell you where you are at the moment.

thank you for the replies. do you think using this forum is enough supervision or neutral observation? i guess it's not full observation because only so much can be shared digitally... i have absolutely no money so unless there is a homeopath in my area (portland) willing to work with me, that's out of the question for now. but i feel like it would be very helpful for my life to begin treatment as soon as i could. as far as my case goes, i'm not sure what exactly that entails. i think, having read the symptoms of lycopodium and anacardium (specifically, the inferiority complex, the cruelty, the withdrawal, fear of being seen, not wanting to be near individuals, but having one around being helpful...) that these two would be beneficial. it's difficult to write and reflect on the issues and especially as they relate to material circumstances because the emotions and thoughts that rush through each situation happen quickly and in succession and spiral out until i'm totally withdrawn and unreactive. i definitely compare myself to others who are my same age (22) and see where their lives have gone and see their accomplishments and measure them against my own, which seem to be non-existent, and i feel like i need to do something to be better but i don't know what. so sometimes i'll take action, but not enjoy myself in the action i'm taking and in the end see it as a failure. for instance, going into the city (portland) to observe some things, feel as part of something, connect with people, or see something new, maybe make a friend. but in doing so and focusing on it i exist out of a natural state and find myself being looked at by others and isolated and generally being in a bad way. i was at school before, studying to become a doctor but i had a lot of paranoia and was not able to continue going to classes and eventually walked out mid-semester and took a bus to my sister's place in north carolina. there it was much of the same, i got a job as a house painter, but was seen as weird and aloof by most everyone i worked with. i was very depressed when i was first at school after having broken up with my girlfriend in 2009 and attempted suicide then. i was very isolated in my home from my mother and step father and lived most of my life alone in my room. now i hope to live a productive life and enter into work on art or at least helping people organize against this terrible american government. and i have a lot of other hopes and ideals so that i can be comfortable and satisfied with where i am and be surrounded by people who see things the way i do and who i can esteem as inspiring and forward moving. but sometimes i am with those same people and i just feel so far below them.. i hope this helps for you, zady. let me know if there's more i can put. thanks again

Patient ID: daesn Sex: male Age: 22

1. Describe your main suffering?
I feel I am the typical terrible American stereotype; lazy, overwhelmed with simulacra, eating too much, etc. though rationally I think, I think, I'm far from that. I feel driven to do things for myself and for people, and I have vague premonitions of the correct actions I should take, but feel incompetent in carrying them out. In society, I am anxious about my appearance and get paranoid that people are judging me negatively. Often times there is a pent-up energy I feel I can't release, and I sometimes fear going outside. Sometimes I fear that I harbor a great evil, like all of the despicable things people fear and abhor I embody.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?

At present, I have a little bit of back pain behind my right shoulder blade. Generally, I feel fine physically.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?

Inferior, anxious, depressed, etc.
4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?

Very little to nothing, no connection to anything, worthless.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

Probably in elementary / middle school. Divorce of parents, isolation from mother and step father (whom I lived with growing up..) Shame about masturbation. Intellectual material far above my head that I pined to reproduce, but have ultimately failed to.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

With gaps of feeling 'okay' , from 10am until I go to sleep. Sometimes late at night, if I stay awake until 2am or 3am I feel at peace and creative, as I want to.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?

Eating generally makes me feel okay for a little while, but I'm also aware at the same time of how I'm eating to make myself feel better. Exercise sometimes makes me feel better for a short while. Sleeping is nice most of the time. Having a forced schedule if I'm anxious aggravates the situation greatly.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?

Being in public if I'm not in a good state.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?

During dry, cold weather.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

Sometimes arrogant, most of the time lazy, certainly changeable, sometimes moody, emotional, sometimes easily irritated, easily offended, worried about people talking about me in a negative way, low self-esteem, sometimes disconnected and apathetic.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?


- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?

I don't really understand and do not reach out for help so can't guess.

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?


- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc?

I bite my nails and smoke.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?

I feel mostly good about two or three of my friends and some of my family members, but sometimes entirely doubtful of anything connected to the me that has been around and is.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?

I don't fear death, or anything else mostly, unless I'm dwelling on being productive in society, and then I fear about my identity in others' perspectives and in my own esteem.

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?

I generally enjoy all foods, with the exception of bland, poorly cooked, or overly healthy food.

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?


14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?


15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?


16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?

More, in my groin and armpits, sometimes neck.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?

Generally large and normal consistency.

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?

I sleep on my stomach with my knee lifted up. I sleep well most of the time, but often wake up unrested and unenergetic.

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?


20. How do you think you are different from others, if at all?

I think I'm much more anxious, sad, isolated, disconnected, misproportioned head from body, think more about universal truths, and think more in general.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?

Prozac, Seroquel, Abilify (this was when I was 18 and I did not get any benefit from them and quit on my own accord)

22. What major diseases are running in your family?

Depression possibly, though it's not diagnosed. That is it.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance

I'm 5'10 brown hair blue eyes , my head is large in proportion to my body, but it's otherwise balanced, I have a semi-athletic build, though it's not rugged but instead smooth with flowing lines. Overall, I think I'm generally within range of the western ideal of beauty.

rishimba 9 years ago
Yes you are pretty much on target. Let me ask a few confirmatory questions and then we can see.
Zady101 9 years ago
Yes Zadie, rishimba I had looked into staphysagria too. I will check it out again. Maybe Nux Vomita as well? Or begin with Nux V? Thank you

Hi D,

Zady will figure this out for you. All you have to
do is answer the questions he asks, follow his
prescription advice and report in on time to
be monitored on your progress.
simone717 9 years ago
Thanks Simone,


Please answer a few questions:

1) Do you curse a lot?

2)Do you cry easily?

3)Do you mingle with girls/women now?

4) Do you feel that 'unseen' people talk to you: some giving good thoughts, while some giving bad thoughts in your mind?

5) Do you have anger outbursts? In case the answer is yes, what exactly happens during an outburst?

6) And you feel comfortable and at peace when you are eating?

7) Do you feel restless inside? If yes, then what kind of restlessness is that? Are you moving feet a lot, etc?

8) Do you sigh a lot, or take deep breaths?

9) Any headaches? If yes, then what's the location?
Zady101 9 years ago
1) Do you curse a lot?

Maybe a 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most.

2)Do you cry easily?


3)Do you mingle with girls/women now?

I've just moved to a new city, so I don't really mingle with anyone as of yet. In my former city, I mingled a little bit with girls/women.

4) Do you feel that 'unseen' people talk to you: some giving good thoughts, while some giving bad thoughts in your mind?

Not really, though I do contemplate evil/good and which is which, and consider different responses to situations.

5) Do you have anger outbursts? In case the answer is yes, what exactly happens during an outburst?

Rarely, I would yell and jump around. If it is someone in particular who is causing me to be angry, I would never say anything unless it was my father or mother.

6) And you feel comfortable and at peace when you are eating?

Yes, though I eat quickly.

7) Do you feel restless inside? If yes, then what kind of restlessness is that? Are you moving feet a lot, etc?

Yes, it's kind of behind the sternum and it makes me want to go forward and do great feats of physicality or play music or express myself in some way artistically. I'm always moving and looking around at different things and fiddling with a button or a zipper.

8) Do you sigh a lot, or take deep breaths?


9) Any headaches? If yes, then what's the location?

Sometimes after a long time of using the computer or staring at a screen, behind the eyes. Generally I haven't had headaches since I had a concussion in 3rd grade after which I suffered a great amount of headaches. Perhaps I'm used to it, and not aware of headaches at times.
daesn 9 years ago
some other things i think i should mention: often lower back ache, sometimes sharp pains in hands in the veinous tissue.
daesn 9 years ago
Please elaborate more on 'since I had a concussion in 3rd grade after which I suffered a great amount of headaches'?

What treatment did u take for this?

How were u affected?

How has your life changed after that?
Zady101 9 years ago
I took ibuprofen sometimes, the headaches were recurring for 4 months, but often the headaches were stronger than the medication. I was very young, 8 or so, so it's hard to say how it affected my life.. It made it difficult to sleep at least. That's as much as I can remember.
daesn 9 years ago
Please take the below remedies;

1) Arnica 30C

Dissolve 2 drops in 3 tablespoons water, stir a few times and drink. Do this ONCE A DAY, preferably in the night before sleeping.

2) Nat. Sulph 6X

2 doses a day, once in morning and once in afternoon. What constitutes a dose will b clear from bottle instructions.

Please update after a wk.

Restrictions: Coffee, colas, drugs.
Zady101 9 years ago
Thank you, I will try to get these medications as soon as possible and I'll let you know when I begin. Again again again thank you!! :)
daesn 9 years ago
Hi- if you have Whole Foods near you, they will have the
Arnica 30c and the Nat Sulph 6x is a cell salt. It is
Hylands brand in Whole Foods and they come in tablets.
simone717 9 years ago
Hi Simone,

in wholefoods, they had arnica 30c tablets and nat sulph 6c. is the recommendation 2 tablets in 3 tbsp water? is there a way to use the 6c nat. sulph to get to the same potency as the 6x?
daesn 9 years ago

You have to get the 6x. The 6x 's are called Hylands Cell Salts.
There are 12 of them. They are usually on another shelf. Did you
ask them if they have the Hylands Cell Salts? These are also
called Schuesslers Tissue Salts but Hylands is the brand they carry.

If they don't have them, then order Nat Sulph 6x cell Salt from
Vitacost online.

Arnica 30C: 2 tablets or 5 pellets
Zady101 9 years ago
Hello I've just got the order of the Nat Sulph 6X. I have arnica montana 30c pellets. How should I use them?
daesn 9 years ago

If you have tablets take 2 before bed. If they
are little pills take 5 before bed.

The nat Sulph 6x dissolve 4 tablets under
tongue 3 times a day.

Do this for 7 days and then report in.

Keep a half hour before or after food and
drink taking these remedies. No coffee,
colas or other drugs during this time.
simone717 9 years ago
Hey, it's been a week and I've followed the direction. I'm not too sure how different I feel. I spent most of the week indoors, and I felt very neutral about anything and apathetic sort of. I definitely over ate, but now for yesterday and today I've eaten well and not too much. Yesterday I felt very depressed for the first time in a while, maybe I allowed myself to be more honest about how I felt, or let myself feel that? I'm not sure, maybe you have another set of questions. I haven't had any caffeine or anything else, too. Thank you
