Aggravation will usually begin within the first 3 days. It generally peaks at about 3-5 days (depending on when it starts), and after 7 days should noticeably diminish (if not before).

Aggravation is usually a sign the remedy is working, and your vital force responds to the aggravation by pushing against it (curing).

You are right, we wait and see. No reaction is the worst reaction.

Update: still waking up between 5-6 am (heart not racing as I am taking beta blocker as soon as I feel I will fall asleep ie. usually around 1230-1am)

So what are your symptoms like now?
Evocationer 8 years ago
I am still waking everyday between 5-6 am and generally do not fall back asleep. I do not fall asleep easily or early (this is not new).

Today I woke at 2am with a pounding heart- yesterday I purchased a herbal formula (out of desperation) that I remember helped me in about 2008 when I started getting panic attacks again, it helped me feel relaxed. I thought it might help with this early morning waking as it is supposed to help with adrenal function and the stress response, it's called Adrenal pro by Can Prev.

Here are the ingredients:
Each capsule contains

L-Tyrosine 200mg
Pantothenic acid (B5, calcium d-pantothenate) 125mg
Ashwagandha extract 1.5% withanolides 100mg
Schisandra extract 1.6% schisandrins 75mg
Siberian ginseng extract 0.8% eleutherosides 75mg
Rhodiola extract 3.6% rosavins 50mg
Astragulus extract 0.3% astragalosides 38mg
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCL) 15mg

I didn't want to spend the money on this ($35cad) but if it worked it would be worth it and I wasn't going to touch any homeopathic remedies without recommendation from you.

I thought the early wakings might be cortisol/adrenal problems from stress, or sugar balance or even hormones. But because of my stress level thought the cortisol/adrenal might be it.

Yesterday I took it day and night, I will try it again today (am only) and see. Even if it helps me relax during the day like it did in the past it is worth it, unless of course it keeps making me wake up even earlier. Oh, I did fall asleep earlier than usual (around 11pm last night) with some ease from the exhaustion from little sleep the night before, but my point is the herbal formula did not make it difficult to fall asleep.

Unfortunately those things can create blocks for homoeopathic treatment. Try to avoid them if you can.

Repeat the remedy, all 3 doses, but hit the bottle 8 times before each dose.

I should take the same remedy that I made last time? do you think it will benefit this time? I didn't notice it help with my sleep.
justagirl 8 years ago
Always repeat any remedy that produced some kind of positive result - that is the basic rule in homoeopathy. First step is to adjust dosage in some way (succussions, frequency, dilution etc), then you alter the potency, then you consider a different remedy.

Changing remedies too quickly can result in the right remedy being missed. Dosage is an important aspect of treatment.

Okay, do I take the 3 doses in one day? And I am to use the bottle of premade solution? Thanks!
justagirl 8 years ago
Use the same bottle you used before. The water in it 'remembers' the number of times it has been already hit. One dose is taken each day, for 3 days, not 3 doses in one day.

It is important to allow each dose to do its work, before taking another. We only give doses that close together during acute ailments or very acute flare ups of chronic problems.
Evocationer 8 years ago
Ok. So I hit it 8 more times. You said it remembers how many times it has already been hit. Last time I took two doses and stopped. But I think I hit the bottle each time before I took the dose (if I remember correctly) was that wrong to hit it before each dose?

I will take one dose per day and not 3 in one day.

Sorry if I had forgotten.

Thank you!
justagirl 8 years ago
Yes you hit the bottle before you take each dose. So hit it 3 more times (8 hits each time).
Evocationer 8 years ago
Ok, got it!
justagirl 8 years ago
I took my dose at 3pm est.today. will report effects tomorrow.
justagirl 8 years ago
So far I don't think I notice any difference. I felt sad last night, but I am having that time of the month and have bouts of sadness from my depression, so I cannot say it's from the remedy. Was sad thinking about the passing of R.Williams also.

My sleep was exactly the same: woke 6am, took more meds, tossed and turned and now I am exhausted. I also have a bit of a headache now

Nothing else to report yet. I have mainly been trying to sleep (as usual until this time of day)

I feel like I should not take another dose for now and see what happens.
justagirl 8 years ago
I am feeling quite depressed. don't know if the remedy has anything to do with that..
justagirl 8 years ago
We need to do an assessment of the reaction, to see if the remedy has had the kind of positive result I expect. If not I will reanalyse the case and prescribe a new remedy.

Go through all the symptoms you described in the questionnaire, including the mental and emotional ones. List them, and next to each one write Better, Worse, or Same. If better or worse also write a percentage % to represent how much.
Evocationer 8 years ago
Everything is the same. I just feel depressed right now. the headache that I had earlier is gone.
justagirl 8 years ago
I still need you to do an assessment for me. Saying everything is the same isn't enough. I need to you to look at each symptom and consider it carefully. Also list any changes to any symptoms - new qualities, and especially anything new that might have appeared, however minor.
Evocationer 8 years ago
Maybe I am too tired and or not clear headed as I cannot think of any differences, except for feeling more depressed right now. the sleep problems didn't change at all. I will see if I can come up with anything else.
justagirl 8 years ago
Alright, I will try to find the time today to make that list for you.

It is important to do follow ups methodically to make sure you do not skip a remedy which could help. It also helps to form a larger picture by looking at variations in the symptoms themselves which might occur naturally.
Evocationer 8 years ago
Thank you.

Today is just a depressing day plus I am exhausted. But, no idea if it's the remedy or not. Sorry.
justagirl 8 years ago
It could very well be an aggravation. Did you want to wait a bit before answering any more questions? If it is an aggravation, then there may be no benefit in assessing as it will all look bad.
Evocationer 8 years ago
yes, maybe it is an aggravation, the depression I feel today is very bad, usually I can cheer myself up a bit with little things, not today.
justagirl 8 years ago
Well that has the hallmarks of the homoeopathic aggravation - the symptoms are similar to your normal ones, but slightly worse.

Homoeopathy works by creating an artificial disease very similar to your natural one. Your own body (vital energy) then reacts against this by 'pushing back', which is where the cure starts to happen.

Often when using the lower potencies, you have to take enough doses to reach the threshold of this reaction. It may be this is what has happened to you now.
Evocationer 8 years ago
Hopefully I will feel better soon then and start to be cured. I wish it would help with my sleep and other items... but right now depression is the only thing affected (bettered or worsened), in this case worsened.
