Well I can try and help you if you like. However, as a Classical Homoeopath, I require a full set of questions answered, which will relate to many aspects of your health and your life. This will take more effort on your part to answer questions and provide feedback. Are you willing to do this?
Evocationer 8 years ago
of course! Thank you very much ! Please go ahead and ask me anything !

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. We need to understand the whole process of the sensation as it is happening to you.


Many factors are likely to influence your complaint. Some factors may intensify it and some factors may relieve the trouble. A detailed list of the factors is given at the end. Please refer it while describing each of your troubles and indicate which factors make the complaint better or worse.

DISCHARGES: You may have a discharge from nose, ears, mouth, eyes, ulcers, fistula, eruptions on skin, private parts, etc. Please describe your discharge in detail including colour, consistency, appearance, odour etc.

1] Your Complaint:

(Use your own words as far as possible, but if you have recognized or diagnosed the condition, give this information also.) By answering as many of these questions as fully as possible, you are helping me to understand what your body and unconscious mind is conveying. This can help me find a remedy for you.)
• What is your complaint?
• When did the complaint begin?
• Where is it located?
• What sort of sensations (and emotions) do you associate with it?
When does it tend to occur (time/day)
• Does anything make it better or worse?
• How does it bother you? How is it coming in way of your day-to-day life?
• How does it feel like to have this/these problem/s?
• What is the effect of this/these problem/s on you?
• Did any event happen which caused the complaint? Describe the emotion associated with it.
• What are the other symptoms started with it, esp. mental and physical symptoms, which are not directly related to the main complaint.
• What are your reactions with it?

PLEASE ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS FOR EACH SYMPTOM/COMPLAINT SEPARATELY. DO NOT INCLUDE ALL OF YOUR COMPLAINTS TOGETHER IN EACH QUESTION eg. all questions answered for Leg Pain, then same questions answered for Migraines, then same questions answered for Panic attacks etc.

Mental and Emotional State Description

(the homoeopathic remedy is very often decided on the basis of the mental and emotional state of the patient !)

1. What are the issues in your life that bother you the most. Not physical issues but mental or emotional ones. List each one separately and describe why each one bothers you so much.

2. What emotions are the most troublesome for you? What situations provoke these emotions. How do these emotions make you act? Do you feel any ill effects from expressing or not expressing these emotions.

3. What incidents in your life have had a deep impact on you? Describe each incident in detail and how they made you feel? What did you do in those situations? What effect have they had on your life?

4. What are you afraid of? Especially important are phobias, but it might be objects, situations or events that just produce a high level of anxiety. How do you manage your fears? How do you react when confronted with these fears? What would be the worst situation for you to be put in that would provoke these fears? You may need to talk about each fear/anxiety separately.

5. What hobbies do you have? Why do you like each of these activities?

6. Do you have any persistent thoughts, ideas or beliefs that are difficult to stop or cope with? What are they?

7. Do you have any unusual gestures or movements of the body? Do you feel any unusual sensation or pain throughout your body? What exactly does it feel like is happening in your body?

8. When you experience your fears, persistent thoughts, or difficult emotions, what kind of sensation or reactions do you get in your body?

9. When did you feel at your best in your life? What was that like for you? If you imagine the complete opposite of this feeling or moment, what would that be like?

10. Do you feel like you are stuck in a pattern of behavior, especially when trying to deal with your problems? What is this pattern?

11. What difficulties or problems do you have in relationships? Talk about your family, your romantic relationships, your spouse or partner, your friends, and your work colleagues. You may need to talk about all of these separately.

12. List 5 positive things about yourself. Are there any situations where this positive attribute becomes negative (is a problem)?

13. List 5 negative things about yourself. Are there any situations where this negative attribute becomes positive (is useful)?

14. Do you have any reoccurring dreams? Describe them in detail, including any feelings that come while dreaming.

15. Did you have any reoccurring dreams as a child, or earlier in your life? Describe those in detail including any feelings that came with them.

16. What were you like as a child, your character, your personality, your fears, your dreams, your problems?

17. What kind of environment did you grow up in? What problems where there at home, with your family, with your parents, with your siblings, with school?

I will start my analysis once you have finished all the questions. It is fine to take your time with them as I prefer well thought out answers rather than short ones that have been rushed.
Evocationer 8 years ago
hi there evocationer!

calinepop 8 years ago
Is there anything else do you need from me to answer?
calinepop 8 years ago
I will look over this today and see what comes up. I think when I posted last your answers were not showing up for some reason. I can see them now :)
Evocationer 8 years ago
Thank you!i can't wait to start a treatment with you!
calinepop 8 years ago
Alright, I have looked over this today. It is a very interesting case, but I am not sure I really understand what the core of your case is. I have a number of remedies in mind, each of which I know well, but I am not sure which one suits the centre problem in your case.

I want to ask you to expand on some things you have written, to see if it provides some clues. Can you write more about it, how it affects your life, what you do because of it, what you avoid doing, what the feeling of it is for you to have that in your life.

Also, sometimes I might just give a word - I want you to tell me what that word means to you.

'Fear of being caught for doing something illegal'

'Treated like a slave'

'Treated like a soldier'







'Not able to integrate into society'

'Free will'

'I was the smallest'

'Two faces in case I don't like somebody'


'Did not stick to relationships and friends I did not need'

dont drink coffee and tap water..i drink beer but i make a decision to give up!
calinepop 8 years ago
Alright some of those answers were helpful, but some were not. I have a better idea of the group of remedies I should look at but it is still not clear the exact issue here.

Let me ask again about some of those things, but in a mores specific way.

How does the fear of being caught affect your day-to-day life, your behaviour?

You spoke about fighting with guns as making you feel like you had power. What does power mean?

How do you know what you are worth?

How would you become number one? How does a person become number one? What is the best way to do that?

What do you enjoy so much about travelling? Why do you travel so much?

What is the effect of feeling inferior? How do you react to being inferior?

What happens if someone tries to stop you from doing what you want?

What does it mean to have 'Two faces'? What is each of these faces like?

Describe what a proud person is like, what they do, how they behave?

What is it about people or being with people that makes you lose energy?

is ewerything ok? i hope you have all the answers
calinepop 8 years ago
is anything else I should add ?
calinepop 8 years ago
No that is good. Actually very good - this made it much clearer what you were talking about.

I am just trying to sort out exactly the remedy that is best.

Answer this question for me though - if you were an animal, what animal would you be? And tell me why - what are the qualities, strengths of that animal that you most relate to or admire?

Also, tell me what animal would be most NOT like you - what are it's weaknesses?
