Your remedy is: Calcarea Phosphorica 30c.

Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 2 days with changes observed.

One dose is made by dissolving one pill of the remedy (or one drop, if you have liquid remedy) in half a glass of cooled, boiled water. Stir it and take one tea spoon from it.

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.

If there is 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.
Don’t combine changes i.e. don’t start or stop anything at the same time as starting homeopathic treatment as we will never know what caused what

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.

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 your child is breastfed then what you eat will have a huge effect on your baby’s health. If you eat foods which cause gas (e.g. cabbage, beans, cauliflower etc) then your baby will have gas too. Cut back on the foods which cause gas in you or your husband (because your baby may have acquired the genetic tendency of your husband to have gas & bloatedness). Eating a few fennel seeds will address infrequent gas & bloatedness, eating it in excess will cause constipation.

Homeopathy works on “individualization” i.e. the remedy for GERD which will work on one child may not work on another. There are several remedies for GERD. Nat-Phos is promoted by a particular person as THE remedy for curing GERD by selectively quoting parents benefiting from his Nat-Phos protocol. This is not only incorrect but totally against the principles of “individualization” in homeopathy. Desperate parents would do anything to get the cure but blindly going for Nat-Phos is not the route as many have found the hard way. It’s a case of common sense & statistics. If you give Nat-Phos to 100 kids for GERD, some are bound to improve, it doesn’t mean that it’s THE remedy for GERD. Be sensible and consult a classical homeopath who gives only one single remedy at a time, waits for the remedy to work and discloses the name of the remedy.

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.

Unfortunately, antacids and other allopathic medicines mess up true symptoms which are essential for finding the right homeopathic remedy and curing the case. The allopathic medicines are suppressive in nature and the longer they are used, the more difficult cure becomes. Allopathic medicines should be the last resort when all else fails.

Probiotics are good for the gut but they don’t suite everyone. So carefully observe the before & after of starting probiotics.

I went toget the medicine at Whole Foods and the said that is for teething could it be on another name?
favi14 8 years ago
Is it the same at nat phos but #30?
favi14 8 years ago
One homeopathic remedy can be used for various issues. You were misled by whole foods. Please get the remedy that I wrote.

Ok, I will thank you

Dear Favi,

The usa now requires that remedies have something
put on them that says what they are for. ( not whole foods-so it says teething on
that remedy tube)

If you look up the remedy on the alphabet at the
top of the forum ( materia medica) you will see
it is used for 100's of symptoms-they cannot
put all that on a container so they
just put a common symptom on.

Also, many remedy manufacturers, such as Boiron,
put a dosing schedule on the container. This is
wrong. They know it is wrong, as when a remedy
produces a reaction, one stops the remedy and
lets the remedy work, otherwise you can overdose
and bring things back. I think they must do
this to sell more pills, but it is counter
productive and can harm you.

favi14 8 years ago
Please send me a picture of the baby.

What changed in the routine which caused this flare up.

Don't give another dose yet.
fitness 8 years ago
She is exclusively breastfed ,could it be something I ate?
favi14 8 years ago
It's either something you ate, drank or emotionally felt.

We have to focus on you, not the baby.
fitness 8 years ago
Oh wow, I did not know that much
favi14 8 years ago
You have to figure out what you did on the day or one day before your baby got the symptoms and avoid that.

Ok, thank you so much I will do that.
