Acne and Acne Scars

Hi there,

I'm 40 years old. I had acne since I was in my teens. I'm still dealing with acne and acne scars. It seems that most of my anxiety, sleep issues are related to my thought about my face. If I look in the mirror and see a beautiful person looking back at me then I feel confident and seem like I can face any challenge. However if i look in the mirror and see a new pimple or if my acne scars look really bad. I get heart palpitation and can't sleep that night. I feel tired and loose all my will to do anything. After the birth of my 2nd kid i got skin discoloration on my cheeks and starting looking hair. I have been exploring the idea of taking Sepia or Lycopodium. Just not sure which one is a good fit. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks.

You can choose to do trial & error with your body and end up in a deeper problem than you already are.

Recommending remedies without taking full case for chronic problems is highly irresponsible, dangerous and playing with peoples lives.

If you are serious about your health then read the next post carefully and respond.

take another symptom :her acne start when she was a teen and after her 2nd kid she got discoloration on her cheeks.
which explain her acne may be due to hormone disbalance .
 
gaintrox 7 years ago
I do believe that my acne and sleep might be related to hormone disbalance.

Usually 2 days before ovulation, i get acne and i can't sleep. I'm irritable and angry. Also, 2 to 3 day before my cycle starts, I'm irritable, angry and I can't sleep.

I don't think i had an accident that caused my nose issues. It's hard to tell if I was born with it. In my baby pictures it looks like i had a nice straight nose. If i look at my pictures from when i was 11 I'm noticing the crooked nose.
 
momis 7 years ago
Please post here or email me pictures of your acne.
 
fitness 7 years ago
i emailed it to you
 
momis 7 years ago
Your remedy is: Pulsatilla 200c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 7 days with changes observed.

WHAT IS A DOSE:
If remedy is Pills/Pellets:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill in your mouth.

If remedy is liquid:
Put one drop of the remedy in half glass of water, stir and take one tea spoon from it.
That’s one dose.

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.

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.

IF I DON’T REPLY:
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.

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.

HOW TO ORDER:
You can get the remedies from this site or various other online sources, use Google search for it.

DIETARY & EXERCISE GUIDELINES (for adults):
Use common sense in following these guidelines and ask me if unsure. 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. 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.
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.

LIFESTYLE CHANGE:
No amount of treatment, be it homeopathic or allopathic, can cure if the persistent cause is not eliminated e.g. if you keep moving a broken bone repeatedly then it will never heal since you are not giving it the required break to heal and set the bone. The same logic applies to constant immense stress (don’t confuse it with daily life stress which is necessary to survive).
Extremely unhappy relationships are toxic in nature and only breed more contempt & ill health unless they are addressed and proper remedial measures are not taken.

I'm wondering why you felt that pulsatilla was the best choose. Why not folliculinum or sepia.
Thanks
 
momis 7 years ago
Because it fits your symptoms holistically.
 
fitness 7 years ago
I followed your instructions. On the 6th day I got a runny nose and on the 7th day I ended up getting a very large cold sore on the right side of my nose. Also, I noticed that the day i took the remedy right under my rib on the right side was so painful.

thanks

What changes have you noticed since taking the remedy, physically & emotionally.

If you still think there were no changes, I don't have any further advise for you.
