Dear Dr. Nawaz,

there are few things that I missed to explain in my earlier post that May have some relevance too:

1. I take bath daily in the morning with warm water and I try to take off the scaling as much as I can during the bath. after the bath I use the E45 cream to keep my skin moustorized. that may be one of the reason that you are not seeing too much scaling on my psoriasis spots in the pics that I sent you on your email.

2. my maternal family history has some psoriasis patients as well mother informed me that her aunt (my meternal grandpas cousin) had psoriasis on her legs. my uncle (my mother's brother) also got psoriasis two years back on his body.

3. I sent you the pics of my chest, back and leg. I also have psoriasis scalps on my head.

Hi,

Thanks for the additional info.

Let me know the response of Calc Carb? In what potencY? Who suggested?
[message edited by nawazkhan on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 04:34:59 GMT]
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Dear Dr. Nawaz,

I have taken Calcarea Carb in 1M potency Yesterday, I was feeling aggravation in itching and burning in my psoriasis scalps since yesterday. I have read that it may be a good sign if a remedy aggravates in the initial stages as it shows that the remedy fits to ones symptoms.

I actually used the online software on this site and it gives me a grid showing atleast 10-15 remedies. I have gone through these remedies one by one in detail and picked Sepea and Calcarea and Lyco from the remedy grid. Initially, I was confused between Sepea and Calcarea and Lyco so I used Sepea first which shows some improvement for only one to two days and then the improvement stopped. I have also read in the remedy discription that Calcarea act very well if taken after Sulfur. So I tooks Sulfur first on Monday and then Calcarea Yesterday. On the other hand I also got convinced with Calcarea as it also encounters the warts problem.

I am not sure if this is the correct remedy for me and I also understand that self medication is exteremly dangerous but I have used homeopathy for about 14 years and most of the homeopaths I visited in our part during that period picked the remedies on hit and trail method. They change the remedy every now and then which shows that they don't study the case well enough to decide on the correct remedy. So I thought I should do it my self and I am also hopeful as I saw aggravation right after I have taken Calcarea.

I have seen you people helping patients having problems on this forum without lookin for any benefit and I respect and pay honor to all of the homeopaths who are active on this forum helping patients. I feel that I can also get good help from you.

Your guidance would be of great help for me.

Kind regards,
Rehan Masood

Neat!

"So I tooks Sulfur first on Monday"
Please always mention potency of the remedy.

So, you picked up 1m by your own thinking. Potency of any remedy is very difficult to pick. It the heart of the whole thing in homoeopathy.

Self-prescribing is very dangerous. Homoeopathic remedies are very powerful with serious side effects.
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Dear Dr. Nawaz,

I took Sulfur in 1M potency. I have discussed the matter of potency with my uncle who has studied and practiced homeopathy for some time but not practicing now a days.

I have also studied some articles on homeopathy. What I understood from these articles is that for acute deseases: Remedy should be given in low potency with high frequency (sometime repeated after 3-4 hours). and for chronic cases such as mine: High potency with low frequency (sometimes repeated after a months).

However, I had never decided on any remedy in the past myself untill last few weeks. With due respect to all the homeopaths, Its just that I got hopeless with the homeopaths in our part of the world. Most of them are only there for making money. I am still unable to understand that why most of the homeopaths in our part dont prescribe the remedy rather they give the medicines without any discription on it. No one knows what they are using. There are homeopath in our parts who use steriods with the homeopathic remedies just to get quick fame and earn money. You may also say that there is a lack of trust now for the homeopaths as far as I am concerned. Therefore I thought of trying it myself. Though I understand that self-medication is extremly dangerous but it is better than what those butchers who are using steriod with the homeopathic remedies are doing to our healths.

As stated earlier, I respect the homeopaths such as you who are devoted to this profession and are spending time on this forum without looking at any benefits. "Hats of to them".

Kind regards,
Rehan Masood

Dear Dr. Nawaz,

I am sharing this post to include more details for you to decide on my remedy as and when I notice.

I have noticed that I feel extremly hungry during 7-9 PM. I take dinner at about 8 PM daily after reaching home from office. Often during the dinner I cant refrain my self from eating too much. Sometimes I eat more than 3 roties (breads) with gravy (that may be meat or daal of vegitables etc). I also noticed in last 3-4 days that sometimes even after eating 3-4 roties I still feel hungry.

I am not talking about lunch as the lunch at office which I take from home, is often restricted to 1-1/2 roti.

I shall wait to see the results of Calcarea Carb as suggested by you and shall keep you updated on daily basis. By the way did you get a chance to see the details I shared with you? what is your view on selection of Calcarea Carb? From the detail I submitted, Do you think Calcarea is my remedy or you feel that some other remedy could give better results?

Dear Dr. Nawaz,

this is to give you an update for today.

No change in the skin condition as compared to Yesterday.

regarding my likes and dislikes, i like to stay at home most of the time watching TV . I don't feel very comfortable in get together. I have very few friend; just two presently and let me tell you that I have not met with them personally for about 5-6 month. whenever we have a plan in office for a get together or a picnic trip. I always slip away. which shows that I like to stay aloneost of the time. I was watching the cricket match today and I noticed that I keep on changing the channel almost every ball which shows that I am very impatient.

Food related likes and dislikes: I like patatoes, eggs. mutton and chicken and rice. I like eggs so much that even though doctors has asked me not to eat eggs yet I can't resist eating egg whites atleast. I don't take egg yoke at all.

if you have gone through the details. kindly let me know what would be your suggested remedy?

Kind regards
Rehan

"No change in the skin condition as compared to Yesterday. "
What is the skin condition at this moment, please describe in detail in your own words?
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Dear Dr Nawaz,

The psoriasis condition has gone bad today. I can feel lot of aggravation in itching and burning today. Scales are also much more as compared to last three days. One of the reason could be that I watched the Pak Vs India match yesterday and remained stressed during the whole day. Also I stayed lying on the bed the entire day Yesterday which can also be a reason for aggravation.

As desired I have sent you the pics of my toe nails on your email address.

I have not taken any remedy for last five days.

Kindly suggest.

Kind regards
Rehan

Hi,

Thanks for the pics. That really helped. I've replied your email.

Please take Arsenicum Album 200C, 4 drops mixed in 2 sips of mineral water, 1 time a night, at bed time, for 3 nights.

Many prayers for your happy and healthy life.
 
nawazkhan 6 years ago
Dear Dr. Nawaz,

I have purchased Ars. Alb. 200 today and have taken it between 12:00 to 12:30 PM. I hope this shall not make any difference as I have not taken it in the night.

Is there any difference between 200 and 200C? I have checked with the Homeo store and they said that they only have 200 potency.

Also let me know if there are any food related restrictions that you would recommend.

Kind regards,
Rehan Masood
