The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Evocationer help, Hair loss (I think silica constituent)

Hi Evocationer,

I would like to consult with you for my hair loss. I m 37 yr and have hair loss since I started college. I used to take homeopathy medicine on and off , but never took it very seriously. Now would like to go on homeopathy treatment. I have typical male bald pattern. Hair are gone from the front quite a lot. I don't see the hair fall only when I shampoo I see some hair but I know the density is reducing just not noticeable every day.
I also read about the homeopathy constituents and I think I fall in Silica. I also had ingrown toe nail problem which is completely treated using silica.
Could you please help me in my case. Everyone on my father side has good hair, my siblings too. My mother side not that good.

Please let me know if you need more information?

Thanks

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Of course I am happy to help. It is way more complex doing an adult's case though, so you will need to answer even more questions :)

CASE PRESENTATION FOR CLASSICAL HOMOEOPATHIC PRESCRIBING

General Guidelines:

1. Try to be as descriptive as possible. When describing pains or sensations use descriptions along the lines of ‘feels as if someone is squeezing it with their hand’ or ‘it is like an insect crawling around inside’ or ‘it is as if someone is standing over me threatening to kill me’. Long descriptions are always better than short ones. One word answers are difficult to use successfully.

2. Another important part of symptom description for homoeopathy are the ‘modalities’. These are situations, events, activities or conditions which modify the symptom in some way. We usually refer to this as what makes them ‘better’ or ‘worse’ (amelioration/aggravation). The situation may actually provoke the symptom into appearing, make it vanish altogether, or just increase or decrease it in some way. Modalities are vital information for prescribing.

Modalities are typically related to (but not exclusively) the following situations:

A. Temperature, weather
B. Time (day, night, specific times, frequency, periodicity, season)
C. Position, activity
D. Emotions, thoughts
E. Food and drink
F. Drugs, medication

3. How the symptom is perceived is important too – odour, appearance, sound, touch. What colour is it, what is its texture? For gestures, describe what it looks like the patient is doing, or what you feel you are doing while making the movement eg. ‘they look like they are swatting flies’ or ‘I feel like something is pushing my hand upwards’ or ‘it is like I stick a fork in an electrical outlet which throws my body backwards’. Description – it is key to accurate prescriptions.

4. When did the symptom or set of symptoms start? The apparent cause can be useful in determining the remedy, although it is not of the same importance as the previous factors. It may have been a specific event, a disease, an accident or even an emotional experience.

5. Use your own words. Do not copy phrases or descriptions found in our various remedy pictures. Try not to use other people’s ideas or thoughts or words. If you are reporting on behalf of someone else, report their exact words, however you can also report your own observations of them (not opinions).

6. Does the symptom occur alongside another specific symptom? Do particular symptoms only occur together? Does a particular symptom occur with a particular thought or emotion? For example, a headache that always comes with visual disturbances, or stomach pain that appears alongside anger, or anxiety that makes you feel like running down the street screaming.

7. Each complaint should be described fully before going on to describe another complaint. Try not to mix different symptoms or complaints together. Each modifying feature must be clearly attached to a particular symptom/set of symptoms. Any mistake you make here is a mistake the homoeopath will also then make.



BEFORE MOVING ON TO THE NEXT SET OF QUESTIONS, DO THIS NOW FOR EACH PHYSICAL PROBLEM YOU HAVE. LOOK AT ANY POSSIBLE SYMPTOM YOU HAVE, NOT JUST THE ONE YOU ARE ASKING FOR HELP IN RESOLVING.

MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL DESCRIPTION



(Please spend the most time on this section and give DETAILED answers - the homoeopathic remedy is very often decided on the basis of the mental and emotional state of the patient!)

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?

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.

14. Do you have any reoccurring dreams? Describe them in detail, including any feelings that come while dreaming. Dreams are very important in unlocking the deepest truth of a patient’s case, but it is not enough to simply describe them in a sentence. Give as much information as you feel comfortable doing.

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?

Hi Evocationer,

I tried to put as much information as I could. Please take a look and let me know if you need more information,

37 Yr Male, I have started losing hair around the time I was in 10 or 11 grade. I still have hair but lost quite a lot. During my college time I lost most of it,
I used to see hair everywhere when I comb,shampoo or just move fingers in my hair. I used to have nightmares about my hair in college where I see that a bunch of hair fall down in my dreams.
One reason could be the nutrition as in college was not having access to good food. It did improved a little after I started job. In winters and rain it gets worst.


(Please spend the most time on this section and give DETAILED answers - 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 and
how you cope with them.

- I m the middle child, we are 3 brothers. I m introvert and I feel that I didn't get that much love / affection from my parent as my other siblings.
This bothered me a lot but I mostly kept it to myself. I used to cry when alone thinking about that. My parents prefer my siblings in every matter
and thinks I m a dumb in front of them. Its the comparision that bothered me in every aspect. Also since I don't speak that much , they made fun of me and criticised in front of relatives
After I got a good job this gradually stopped and now not an issue. This doesn't bother me much now as I m a parent now and can understand. I understand the impact of sibling comparision
and try not to do with my kids. During sleep time all these things used to come to my mind and I used to cry. Thats how I cope with that. Also I try to do whatever they say
to become good for them. I was the most obedient and good at studies. Also I m very optimistic so I also try to work on my limitations for which I was criticised, like
not speaking much. I tried very hard but I m still a little introvert. but now it doesn't bother me 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.

I think its the anger that most troublesome for me. I used to get angry very easily before but with practice I have overcome this a lot. I like to be in
happy calm state of mind. But if for some reason I get angry I can't cope with that. I start yelling and starts getting headache. Another thing is if I talk
badly to anyone or yell at anyone , I get disturbed after that. I keep thinking about that and try to find the reason to calm myself but doesn't help. I
can't get the calmness until I talk to him again, say sorry to him or feel that he is still good with me. I get headaches when I get angry or yell or sometime after when
I think of it.

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.

I don't think I have any phobia. I m afraid of certain situation where I think I might be criticised or made fun of me. These kind of situation produce high
level of anxiety. For e,g joining a group of people in party with whom I m not familiar with. I am afraid to join them in their conversation because I think
they might make fun of me. I get very disturbed if anyone make fun of me in front of others, even if its just for fun. I take everything very seriously.
When facing situation like that I feel sensation on my forehead and stomach. Starts sweating a little bit, gets itching, heartbeat goes up and I lose concentartion.
I will keep thinking about that event for few days and will be more scared to talk to same people again.

5. What hobbies do you have? Why do you like each of these activities?
I like to read and take long walk. I feel calmness and can think clearly when doing these. I like to play tennins and do exercise to be fit. I feel good
when I do exercise. If I stop exercising for few days I start disliking myself and my body. Its the feel good thing that I like.

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

I think too much about what others might be thinking about. Whenever I meet someone new I try to help him to be good in front of him. As I said I think
I m afraid of criticism , may be thats why I can't make too many friends. I get comfortable after a while and handle the fun/leg pulling but not with
new peoples.It takes me a lot of time to get to that comfort level where I can handle this. I have few very good friends and when with them I feel
happy and can handle any kind of situation.
I think the persisten thought is just keep thinking what he/she might be thinking about me.


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?
Sometime I touch all my fingers with my thumb repetitevly, also keeps shaking my legs when sitting and doing something(not always though)

8. When you experience your fears, persistent thoughts, or difficult emotions, what kind of sensation or reactions do you get in your body?
I feel sensation on my forhead, and on my face. I start sweating and heartbeat goes up.

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?
I think when I was not married and working and living alone was the best time. I was happy, I had few good friends and I was doing good at job getting
appreciation and promotions.
If complete opposite, I would be disturbed, not talking to anyone. Will think about the bad that happened to me and will cry in alone.

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? THIS IS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION PLEASE CONSIDER CAREFULLY AND GIVE DETAILS.
I don't think so. I m vey optimistic person and believes in Positive Thinking. To deal with the problems I keep thinking that it will improve and
I put all my efforts. If that doesn't work I change and do something new but I don't stop. I also believes that there are some things that I can't change
and I have no control on it. For those situation/thing I don't get disturbed by that. I m very content person , the weather, heat cold, doesn't
impact me much.


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.
I already talked about the family.

With my spouse, I had a difficult time initially just after marriage because of our families. I was immature to handle these kind of situation and was very
disturbed during those time. The relationship is good now, I have changed my self a lot and now I understand the other's view.
I don't have any other difficulties or problems with any other. I try to keep everyone happy. I listen to everyone and try to avoid any conflict. I think
thats why I gets adjusted with my colleague easily. I never try to be political I just do my work keep everyone happy and come home. I also don't criticize
anyone. I also don't like if someone criticize someone else in front of me. I try to avoid any such conversation where I have to put my views of someone
. I find everyone is good.


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

I m very optimistic
I listen to everyone and don't cut or try to prove my point even though I know I m right. (negative in some case)
I don't criticise anyone. If I feel bad I try to find the reason why the other person did that.
I don't argue and try to avoid conflicts.
I m a fast learner


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

I m introvert and don't speak much. Because of this I can't explain my point of view to other person and this has caused
most trouble in my relationship with my spouse. I have worked on it a lot.
I can't express myself. I don't laugh freely when I have to.
I think too much for things that I need to say. I can't find the good words to speak. If something is troubling me and I need to talk about
it to someone I will think about it for days and it comes on my face that I m disturbed by some things.


14. Do you have any reoccurring dreams? Describe them in detail, including any feelings that come while dreaming. Dreams are very important in unlocking the deepest
truth of a patient’s case, but it is not enough to simply describe them in a sentence. Give as much information as you feel comfortable doing.

One recurring dream that I have is I m driving a car and the brakes are not working. The car is either slipping backwards on a slope or rotating in
circles and I m trying to stop it but the brakes are not working. There is someone else too in my car, sometime my wife or kids. At the
end of it the car stops and no one gets hurt.


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.
can't recall any

16. What were you like as a child, your character, your personality, your fears, your dreams, your problems?
I was shy and introvert. Can't talk to anyone , do as my parents ask me to do. I remember I was different in school and home. I was very friendly
in school and have good friends but at home I was shy and quiet. doing my work studies etc.

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?

Some of it already explained . Nothing much to add here.

Ok I have seen your post and will add this to my list of new cases to analyse.
 
Evocationer 4 years ago
Hi Evocationer,

did you get a chance to look at my case.

Thanks
coolme
 
coolme 4 years ago
Alright, so I looked at your case through the following rubrics:

Sensitive to or Fear of the opinion of others:

AMBR, ars, aur, aur-m-n, bar-s, bar-c, bov, Calc, Calc-sil, cloth, Dulc, gard-j, Germ, ham, Kali-sil, nat-m, nat-sil, nux-v, ozone, pall, pin-con, prot, puls, SIL, Spong, stann, Staph, thuj, vanil


This felt like a really crucial part of the case to me, and I wanted to restrict my search to remedies known for this issue.

I then considered the following symptoms:

Silent grief
Weeping when alone
Forsaken feeling, not beloved by parents
Weeping thinking of past events
Headache excited/after anger
Dwells on past disagreeable occurrences

Based on that, I would actually suggest Nat-mur, and I would try 200c. Obtain the remedy in liquid form if possible.

The other remedies I hovered around were Silicea, Baryta-carb and Staphysagria. We may try one or more of those, depending on what happens on the Nat-mur.

If you have obtained pillules or pellets, you will need a small bottle and a dropper to make your own liquid dose. Mix water and alcohol into this small bottle to the ratio of 5:1. Dissolve 3 pillules/pellets into this bottle. All doses will be made from this bottle.

If you already have a liquid dose just start from step 1.

1. Hit the bottle 5 times firmly against the palm of the hand

2. Place 3 drops into 100mls of clean fresh water

3. Stir very thoroughly

4. Take 2 teaspoons out into the mouth and hold for 20 seconds, then swallow.

This is one dose and the same steps should be taken for any further doses, unless I ask you to change them in some way.

If any old symptoms reappear, or any current symptoms worsen, this is a GOOD sign in most cases. DO NOT SUPPRESS them with other kinds of medication unless you are in real danger (which is a highly unlikely reaction to a remedy).

However, if you are on regular medication it is also important that you do NOT stop taking this unless it is perfectly safe to do so. Once it is determined the medicine has acted beneficially, we can look at reducing such medication. Regular medication in this instance is NOT defined as other homoeopathic medicines which MUST be stopped. Tissue salts are the same as homoeopathic medicines and are in this category, as are Bach Flowers, Flower Essences, and Bush Flower Essences.

Take ONE dose only and let me know what has happened after a week.
