Describe your personality in at least 20 words
Caring and kind, but worries about everything. Since losing mum and dad have suffered from health anxiety, worrying every symptom is worse case scenario

Give details of 'health anxiety' haven't felt well since October last year and since then have suffered two big panic attacks, since then feel nauseous often, get internal vibrating when anxious, headaches, can't eat. Go to doctor to get reassured that nothing serious. Had mri for headaches and dizziness but all normal. Can't stop thinking something is wrong with me.

Explain dizziness. Always ok in morning but by afternoon feel heavy head then off balance and dizzy.

What do you mean dreamt I was very 'poorly' . Had a dream that I had something nasty, but was after I spent many hours on internet listing my symptoms.

Q-31 details white coating on top of tongue and feels like throat is coated too

Q-34 Need pictures of vitiligo

Q-34 upload here or email me pictures of vitiligo
 
fitness 6 years ago
Got the pictures.

Since when do you have vitiligo.
 
fitness 6 years ago
Was over prescribed on thyroid medication which put my body in over active state, causing palpitations, breathlessness, sweating, then came the panic attack. Haven't felt the same since then.

Vitiligo started 10 yrs ago and has been slowly spreading since. Now have on feet shins and hands and wrists.
 
shazholb2408 6 years ago
I can't prescribe if you give info in bits and pieces. It wastes a lot of my time.

Why didn't you mention about Thyroid in the questionnaire above.

Think and then respond CAREFULLY to the questionnaire. Update it using the EDIT function.

Once you have done that, I will prescribe.
 
fitness 6 years ago
I am no longer on any thyroid medication and haven't been since October, which is why I didn't mention it. All thyroid tests are now completely normal, was mis diagnosed by doctors.

Your remedy is: Natrum Muriaticum 200c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 5 days with changes observed.

TIME OF DOSE:
First dose: At night before sleeping.
Second dose: 12 hrs after the first dose.
Don’t take any more dose or any other remedy unless I tell you.

PILLS/PELLETS:
If your remedy is in the form of pills:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill in mouth.

LIQUID REMEDY:
If your remedy is in liquid form:
Put one drop of the remedy in half glass of water, stir and take one tea spoon from it.
That’s one dose.
Use the same mixture for subsequent doses, if required.
Don’t refrigerate the mixture. Put it anywhere covered, away from direct sunlight.

PRECAUTIONS:
If there is significant worsening of symptoms (called homeopathic aggravation) after the first dose, then don’t take the second dose.
Don’t take any other homeopathic remedy during this treatment.
Give a break of at least 10 minutes before eating/drinking anything before or after taking the remedy.
During the treatment, don’t eat anything which you have never had all your life.

HOW TO GIVE FEEDBACK:
A good example of how to report your progress is by giving %age improvement for all your health problems e.g.
Headache: 30% better
Low energy level: 50% better
Anxiety: 40% better
Sadness: No change
Depression: Worse
And so on list all your complaints.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT HOMEOPATHIC PRESCRIBING:
If someone is giving several remedies, without waiting to see the effect of one remedy, then it is totally against the core principles of homeopathy. Such an approach is unlikely to give permanent cure, rather it may distort actual symptoms making subsequent cure even more difficult.

DIETARY GUIDELINES:
Homeopathy is not magic and it can only work when all other supportive strategies are also used. To make sure you are cured as fast as possible and stay that way please change your lifestyle to include the following:

1. Start eating half cup of low fat, plain, non-flavored yogurt with live cultures daily in the morning or with lunch. If you have homemade yogurt that’s the best.
2. Stop all processed foods e.g. white bread, white rice, white burgers etc.
3. Eat whole foods only i.e. whole grain bread, brown rice, brown burgers etc.
4. The bread should be high in bran content & the flour should be coarse ground.
5. Start eating a small bowl of salad at least once a day e.g. it should contain cucumber, carrots, salad leaves, tomato and any vegetable you like. Put a dressing of olive oil & raw apple cider vinegar and put some salt & black pepper to your liking.
6. Eat at least 1-2 fruits per day e.g. apple, orange etc.
7. Drink enough water so that your urine is clear. Yellow colored urine is a good indication that you are dehydrated.
8. Exercise:
• Aerobic activity e.g. Start walking at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week with your spouse/friend and achieve your target heart rate.
• Strength training e.g. Start weight training at least 20 minutes 3 days a week.
