Hypothyroidism please helpIs there a modern homeopath that is willing to help treat my under active thyroid.
Asad was helping over a year ago. He was amazing I saw good results quickly but then he vanished and I discontinued the treatment as It was a stop start treatment and I didn't know what to do.
I dropped down to 150mcg of thyroxine from 175 when Asad started treating me and I have stayed on 150 for over a year now.
Please let me know if you want to help

I have spent a lot of money on several homeopaths that treat the classical way and I have to say so far I haven't had any success.
Maybe I used the wrong word.

I like to think of myself as a classical homoeopath who utilizes a number of modern methods, but depending on what you are talking about I might not be what you are looking for.

Using multiple remedies at once is a particular kind of therapeutic approach that has existed as long as homoeopathy has existed. It is in fact the allopathic approach, superimposed over the use of our medicines. I suppose one could argue that the use of a single medicine is much more modern an idea than multiple medicines.
I do not give multiple remedies at once. I have never found the need to, but if this is a specific desire you have I would not be able to fulfil that for you. I am happy to find a single medicine that suits whatever the current state is for you, and also to change that remedy as the situation changes - I do not believe in one remedy for life (in case you feel that is something contained with the idea of Classical homoeopathy).
I have looked through the entire post. I am wondering what you felt you got from those large doses of multiple remedies though? I can see there was some improvement, but it was not an overall improvement, and it appears it was mainly mood at certain times. What exactly were the results - there are a lot of posts so it is difficult getting an feel for what happened. I can see your TSH level became lower - was that the only benefit?
I can also see that a previous homoeopath helped one of your children quite noticeably with a single prescription of Drosera (which is more along the lines of how I treat).
I do also see that there was continuing aggravation while taking the remedies, which does imply to me that perhaps you were being overdosed somewhat. It is hard to know what worked and what didn't with so many prescriptions.
We all work a little differently. Homoeopathy is as much an Art as it is a Science, and because of this practitioners can extend themselves creatively to get their successes. I don't know everything, I certainly don't cure everyone who comes to my clinic, so one has to allow for the fact that different approaches can give positive results.
On the other hand, I must remain true to my own way of practicing, and I am happy to try and extend my own creativity and experience to help you if are willing to do that.

As far as I can remember I did actually see the most improvement once I cut back on remedies or stopped.
The effects were very long and my mood has only just started to go back to what it was.
I have had higher energy. Less mood swings and higher libido but this is all disappearing. Although the energy isn't too bad actually.
Yes David kempson treated my son with drosera which was amazing.this was obviously an acute illness which I have had many successes with single dose homeopathy but it's the long term health I have never seen Improvement on me or my children. I will say my children mainly as I haven't been treated much.
If you have the time I would be grateful for any help and advice on remedies. Thanks very much for your time

HOW TO DESCRIBE YOUR COMPLAINTS
In homoeopathy, prescription is based on precise details of various symptoms from which you suffer. To tell or write to a homoeopathic physician 'I have a headache ', ' an eruption ' or a cough would not be enough. If you inform him 'I have headache with sharp shooting pains in the left side of the head and temple, these pains always come on when the slightest cold air strikes the head. I feel better by pressing the head very hard. Then only you have given all the information required for making a good homoeopathic prescription. The success of the prescription depends; largely on how detailed your description of the symptoms is.
We require the following details about your symptoms.
LOCATION: Please give the exact location of sensation, pain or eruption. Also describe where the pain or sensation spreads.
SENSATION: Express the type of sensation or the pain that you get in your own words however simple or funny it may seem. You may have a sensation that a mouse is crawling or the heart was grasped by an iron hand or you may have a pain that is cutting, burning jerking, pressing. Express the sensation or pain as it feels to you. Try to explain the whole sensation in the exact way it is happening and not just the word.
