Low Testosterone & Hypothyroidism1

low thyroid and high testosterone

I am lady getting closer to 40 . Was diagnosed with low thyroid and so for past 6 years I am on medication to control my thyroid levels. Recently I developed high acne and male pattern baldness which doctor attributed to high testosterone( from blood tests )
I also have scanty periods, low libido. I get irritated very easily and also get upset soon (recently ) I feel my hormones are all over the place now. Does homeo have a way to balance hormones.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You said you were on medication to control on thyroid levels. This may be a problem if you want to get treated by homeopathy.

What are the symptoms you suffer from if you don't take regular medicines for hypo-thyroid?

Do you think you can stop taking the medicine for 2 weeks and still feel fine?

I am not advising you to stop the drug, its entirely based on your discretion. I can only say, homeopathy will work best if the original symptoms of hypo-thyroidism ( before taking the medicine) are faced by the remedy.

How uncomfortable will you be facing the original symptoms of hypo-thyroid if you stop taking the medication for a few weeks?

Homeopathy works best when original disease symptoms manifest without any suppression or suppliments.

Thank you for quick response.
If I miss medication, first symptoms are extreme fatigue, cold arms/feet , dry skin. Immunity goes down hill, catch cold/cough, get cold sores. Is it possible to try homeo with the drugs ? Also, my problem is not just thyroid but other hormones as well for which i am not taking medication. Is it possible to address 'high testosterone'?

For these set of symptoms, as I can see it, you may have to take a sustained dosage of SEPIA OFFICINALIS in low potencies.

Its dealing with reality and working out the best solution that is only suitable to you.

One of the problems of using both homeopathy and allopathy at the same time is that the true response of the body cannot be understood.

I can put the questionnaire here if you are willing to try homeopathy. You won't lose anything for sure.

Please take SEPIA OFFICINALIS 30C some 5 doses, each after 12 hours. So, in 48 hours you should be having all 5 doses.

Wait and watch for the next 10 days and note the following:

- your sleep.
- energy level.
- moods.

if you see a quantum jump in any or all of these, note down and report to me.

If you find SEPIA helpful, we will talk about a sustained dose later for long lasting relief.

Note: If you taking homeo remedies for the first time, come back to me first to know the basic do's and don't of taking these remedies.

I got the meds today. This is first time for me. Can you tell me exactlly how many pellets I need to take? If I understand you, you want me to take 5 pellets each after 12 hours ? so, i will take 25 pellets in 48 hrs ?
 
Mom40 5 years ago
No, I would like you to take only 2 pellets as one dose.

Chew the pellets in clean mouth and empty stomach. Don't take any food or water one hour before or after the dose.

Do this every 12 hours so that in 48 hours you will have taken 5 doses.

Note the mental and physical changes in the next 15 days.
