bump up
 
simone717 6 years ago
sir theres a latest update. it is already mentioned that the individual has never masterbated in his lifetime so it was suggested that he should experience it.hes been trying it from the past 4 days but its not happening, temporary erection takes place but then subsides as soon as he tries.On attaining the age of puberty he assumed that masterbation would render his health weak which gradually became a source of deterrence.please take up his case sir
 
depressed_soul 6 years ago
Hi-

Evocationer is not seeing your thread, even tho I put bump on it
to make it go to the top of the forum when he was on talking
to other people.

It would be best if you keep checking the forum-and when
you see him reply to other people, post on one of those threads and
say you are the depressed soul and please look at your thread.

fwi- he is on Australia time.
 
simone717 6 years ago
I have been working on this case actually, and have a remedy. I am on my way to clinic now and I will post my prescription and the reasons behind it very soon.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
Alright I have gone through all the information you have presented carefully. Even though this isn't my preferred questionnaire, you actually gave a lot of valuable information. These are the rubrics I used to form the totality of your case and lead me to the remedy:

Thoughts, intrude, sexual
Thoughts, tormenting, sexual
Ailments from being scorned
Aversion to women in men
Restlessness in company
Despair of social position
Hurry, always in a
Concentration difficult while studying
Anxiety about future
Envy
Helplessness
Offended easily

Profuse salivation during sleep
Ailments from sexual excitement
Suppression of sexual desire aggravates

This brings me to Staphysagria. I would suggest 200c. Try to obtain it in Liquid form. If you can only get pillules, you will also need to obtain a small bottle (15-25mls) with a dropper.

Put 1 part alcohol to 5 parts water in the small bottle with the dropper (fill the bottle 1/5 of alcohol and the rest water). Dissolve 2 pillules into this bottle. This will be your dosing bottle.

Whenever you have a dose, hit the bottle 5 times firmly against the palm of your hand. Place 3 drops into 100mls of clean water. Stir thoroughly. Take 2 teaspoons of this into your mouth and hold for 20 seconds. Swallow. This is one dose.

Take only a single dose to begin with and report any changes after 7 days.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
thanx sir, i somehow knew that you were working on it with all your concentration. nice analysis, i really appreciate it. however, i have a query regarding dosage, here ive bought Staphysagria 200c liquid form, already containing portion of alcohol. kindly specify the dosage intructions and time of its administering(single dose), i have also bought spring water to draw maximum benefit
 
depressed_soul 6 years ago
the individual today informed me that hes still taking previously medicine prescribed by pakistani homeopath , to which i told him to immediately stop (being harmful to him). so along with the dosage also specify wether he should take ur medicine tomm or should he give it a gap of few days
 
depressed_soul 6 years ago
What medicine is he taking? How long has he been taking it for?
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
he has been taking homeopathic medicine from the past 3 years. his previous homeopaths are not traceable, however,i just called his current homeopath but he refused to tell me the exact formula, contained in 4 seperate containers (liquified palets). Neverthless he mention that his characteristics indicate towards nux vomica and anacadium.
 
depressed_soul 6 years ago
He can't be both those remedies at the same time. Is he currently being given 4 medicine at once? This is against homoeopathic principles. I doubt this homoeopath will be able to help him if he is practicing this way.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
exactly sir, hes been given 2 medicine in a day and that too every single day of the month. most of the homeopaths here practice this way thats why nobodys getting cured. he has discontinued the medicine from yesterday and has quit on that doc. What shall we do now ? wish he had resorted to this forum way earlier
 
depressed_soul 6 years ago
Get him to wait 3 days, then start the treatment I have suggested. It will only be one dose initially, but he may need further doses depending on his response. He can report as often as he likes, but I probably will not make any decisions about the next step until at least 7 days has passed, and it might be longer than that.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
will do exactly as directed by you, thanx, but would you please describe the dosage and time of taking medicine (liquid form and not pelet form). should i Place 3 drops into 100mls of clean water. Stir thoroughly. Take 2 teaspoons of this into your mouth and hold for 20 seconds. Swallow. This is one dose.will also hit the bottle 5 times firmly against the palm of hand.
 
depressed_soul 6 years ago
These are the instructions I posted earlier:

Whenever you have a dose, hit the bottle 5 times firmly against the palm of your hand. Place 3 drops into 100mls of clean water. Stir thoroughly. Take 2 teaspoons of this into your mouth and hold for 20 seconds. Swallow. This is one dose.

Take only a single dose to begin with and report any changes after 7 days.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
sir i want to update you about the progress of the patient.
since the administration of the first dose, the patient is feeling drowsy and sluggish, his interest in activities and gatherings with family has deteriorated. he is avoiding company and conversation though hes having gatherings at his place. he was comparatively better when he was on those previous medicine.
i have observed few other facts about him, he feels underconfident and inferior when hes in the company of much confident and sharp youngsters. he quits their company on the basis that they are more superior and theres no match . He also despises the company of his female relatives who are aware of his condition. Hes trying to masterbate but he believes that its something not very natural and does not feel excited about it, on the other hand he says that he may be able to ejaculate once hes in physical contact with the opposite sex. as soon as he intends to masterbate , he gets erection but is not able to maintain it for longer time. sir will update you again on the 7th day.
 
depressed_soul 6 years ago
This sounds like a homoeopathic aggravation, which is to be expected. Depending on his sensitivity, the depth of the complaint, and the length of time he has had it, the aggravation can last a few days to a few weeks (although that is unusual).
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
sir the patient had taken medicine last monday which means a week has passed. His depression has aggravated alot maybe to the level at which it started. sir what to do next
 
depressed_soul 6 years ago
sir i want to add few important points. more than his depression his agression towards his female relatives (young) has increased. One of them he fancied in the past who in a way rejected him,although he is not serious towards her but by doing so he losses her friendship whenever he face them he become very uncomfortable they all had seen his agression so he feels reluctant to face them, hes not able to communicate with them so he gets frustrated. Actually his thoughts are disturbing him a lot and make him feel that he is alone and has got no importance and that situation forcefully make him aggressive although he tried his level best to stay calm but could not control his agression hes got an urge to get normal so that he can make friends and marry one day. before the onset of depression he
was heavily indulged in studies and used to feel pressure regarding scoring high marks.

Alright first thing to do is to see if the remedy will do anything further for the patient.

Repeat the remedy once, but have him hit the bottle 20 times instead.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
I took 2nd dose on 17th and i started to get some energy on wed i m able to wake up in the morning and go out and my aggression towards females decreases and my mood improved by 40% and i got somewhat relief.Still found it difficult to communicate with people and enjoy their company and .It continues till Friday.Due to mental tension, I am unable to frequently get errection but now i am getting errection frequently but still unable to masterbate.

Alright it is time to do a proper assessment.

Please go through the answers you gave me, and next to each symptom or problem write the word Better, Worse or Same. If better or worse, also write a percentage value % to represent how much.

It is important to make a complete list and think about the improvement or other changes to each symptom.
