Overweight, hirsutism, pcod

Hello sir,
I am a homoeopath so i l try to elaborate my presenting complaints.
I have abnormal excessive hair growth on unusual parts,which was noticed to me in 2005.
I took lazer treatment in 2008 however no results as such. Then i was advised for USG which indicated PCOD.Now i do katori wax for the facial hairs which is too much painful.
My menses are sometimes regular and sometimes irregular.
I have gained lot of weight say almost 10kgs in last 2-3years.
My present weight is 90kgs and height is 5 feet 7 inches.
I suffer from headache on daily basis especially in the daytime.
I have become very much irritated and short tempered these days, i shout yell and throw things in anger and sometimes i even start hitting the person right in front of me if that person is not reacting to my anger.
Daily in the morning when i get up i have stomach ache which is better by having something or passing stools.
My apoetite is not too much say about 1-2 chappatis in whole day with a glass of milk and a bowl of yogurt daily , fruits sometimes.
I dont drink much of water as i dont feel thirst and even if i feel i m too lazy to go and get water for myself.
I think a lot about my future that what i l do further and lot of tensions related to dad's financial issues and parents health keep on making m sad and helpless.

My major concern is my excessive weight and abnormal hair growth on unusual parts,esp. Face.. sidelocks and chin.

Please do suggest my medicine so that i can start it and report you afterwards. Kindly give your mail address.

Thanks and regards,
Dr. Swati

How are your eating habits.

Do you exercise, if yes, what do you do and how regularly.

I am sure you know that if you overeat and don't exercise, you will continue to gain weight and no homeopathic remedy can help you.
 
fitness 5 years ago
Eating habits you can say i take a glass of milk daily in the morning. Then between 1-3 pm i have my lunch. In lunch i take 1 chapati, sabzi or dal with curd.
Then in evdning tea with some snacks. Dinner i take around 10-11pm, having rice ,1 chapati dal raita n salad.

Dr Swati 5 years ago
Your remedy is: Calcarea Carbonica 200c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 15 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.

HOMEOPATHIC AGGRAVATION
Sometimes the symptoms for which treatment is being done can worsen after taking the homeopathic remedy. This is homeopathic aggravation and a good sign. It usually dies down within 24-48 hrs. During this time you can use any non-medicinal means to keep yourself comfortable. If the aggravation seems excessive, you can use any & all means necessary (including taking allopathic medicines) to keep yourself comfortable. Keep your homeopath fully updated if this happens.

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. Eat only when hungry and when eating, don’t overstuff yourself.
9. Focus on food only when you eat i.e. don’t divert your attention by watching tv etc.
10. 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.

NOTE: Yogurt can cause increased mucus generation in some individuals, if you are like that, don’t eat yogurt. Rather start eating roasted black chick peas (also known as Bengal Gram) daily.

EMAIL:
If you don’t hear back from me within 24 hrs, it is likely that the forum’s email didn’t work. You can send me an email by clicking my username.

HOW TO ORDER:
US residents can get the remedies from various online sources, use Google search for it, they are available as low as $6 including delivery.
