endometriosis + herpes

New here. Ive just been diagnosed w endometriosis after 11 months of bouncing from doc to doc. I first thought it was my gallbladder (family history) but after a hepatic MRI, abdominal ultrasound, 6 different liver enzyme panels, a CT scan and HIDA w 90% ejection fraction, looks like thats not the problem. Ive had 3 functional ovarian cysts btwn June 2014 and now. I finally learned of endo, convinced my obgyn to do an exploratory laparoscopy, and sure enough he found 1 single black dot which tested positive for endo in pathology. My symptoms are FATIGUE, debilitating fatigue days 21-28 of my cycle, hormonal surges that are hard to explain but are like these strange tuggings or flutters, heat in my pelvis specifically around right ovary, right sided constant dull ache under my rib, and horrific cystic acne on my right side mostly cheek and chin. Ive had many hormone tests and they have always been in the normal range except 1 time my progesterone was 'minimally elevated'. When i rechecked it was normal. To complicate matters, I also have HSV, so using birth control progestin or natural progesterone cream is a double edged sword since it triggers outbreaks. Endo is a disease of estrogen dominance, so the idea is to better balance the ration bwten estrogen and progesterone....I feel the best days 6-16 of my cycle, with Day 15/16 being a 5 star day where i feel almost normal again. Every other day, i lack energy, hardly leave the house, and just dont care about most things the way I used to. These symptoms came on suddenly, and i cant get them to leave although I have tried accupuncture, 3 months w a naturopath and 9 doctors through my HMO.I eat healthy, pescataerian plus eggs, love me some veggies. This has honestly changed my personality. Im at my wits end. Ive read about taking Sepia and want to see if anyone out there in internet land has any suggestions for me. Thank you so much in advance. Ive just joined this forum after spending much time lurking around reading others positive outcomes. I can only hope I have the same results. Best to everyone!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I am not able to paste my questionnaire here. Please go to another thread, answer to all the questions I generally ask to decide on the remedy. Based on your answers, we will discuss further.

Hi again. It still doesn't work, so here is a link to the questionnaire answers. Password is 1253. Hopefully this works. Thanks so much.

When you have these symptoms, especially the days of suffering (21st to 28th), you can take ARS ALB 30C once every 4 to 6 hours for two days maximum. In case you feel a change in your symptoms after a couple of doses, don't take the rest of the doses. If there is no change in your sufferings even after two days of dosing, stop dosing and wait for your response.

One dose would be 3 drops of remedy mixed with 10 ml of water sipped up slowly in empty stomach and clean mouth. No food or drinks one hour before or after taking the dose.

Once you respond to the remedy, keep notes and share with me after 15 days.

Note: If you have any skin related problem, you need to be extra careful while dosing. As soon as you notice a change in your skin symptom, stop dosing.

Thanks so much for this advice. I have a few questions.

-Is the wet tincture the recommended dose? Im able to get the pellets at a local store, which I could have later today. If the wet tincture is preferred, Ill have to order online.
-Is there a specific time of my cycle that I should start this treatment? My symptoms seem to be worse post-ovulation until start of menses.
-When you say 'if you have skin problems' does this mean taking this may trigger an acne and/or herpes outbreak?
-Is the hope that taking this treatment resolves my issue completely, or that its something i would need to do each month at similar time to stave off symptoms?
-After reading my questionnaire, what is it you understand to be the problem, and can you explain why you chose the remedy you suggested?
-Also, since this is my 1st time using this forum - when report back after 15 days, do I just continue replying to this same thread? Or if not, how can i follow up with you?

Hopefully this suggestion provides some relief, I just want my normal life back!

Let me try to answer to your queries..

1. Wet dose if preferable but you can use pellets mixed in some water as well.

2. Start the doses when sufferings begins post ovulation.

3. The remedy will create a stimulus in many areas and your skin symptoms can also get aggravated before they get cured. So, you need to dose carefully.As soon as you see a change in you, stop dosing for a few days and report to me.

4. Ars Alb seemed to me as fitting your totality of symptoms, so should be curative in some potency. We need to find which potency is the final curative one. You may have to take this remedy in higher potencies if your symptoms relapse next month.

5. Ars Alb was selected on totality of your symptoms. The probable cause, modalities, sensations and your mentals added up and converged in Ars Alb. The most recent trigger seems to be the change of diet.

6. Stick to the same thread while reporting. You can visit and give daily updates as well..you will find me here.

7. Don't worry, this will cure you in the long run. It may take some time to dissolve the cyst though.

Please start treatment with ARS ALB 12C instead of 30C.

Since you have herpes as well, its safe to start with 12C potency.

Last two things before I order:
1. I don't still have a cyst, but I have had 3 over the last 11 months which resolved on their own. As far as I know as of today, I don't have one. But I always have the heat near my ovary area.
2. I changed my diet for 40 days (a year ago) and then I went back to my regular eating habits.

Just wanted to clarify and make sure the same treatment still applies.

Is 12x the same as 12c? I'm trying to purchase in the shop and for liquid from the vendor closest to me it says 12x, 30c or 200c.
makelemonade 5 years ago
There is no change in your remedy. ARS ALB stands at the top of remedies that may cure you. In homeopathy, remedies are selected on manifested symptoms and finally the total disease picture is matched with the remedy. In your case your disease picture does match ARS ALB.

I suggest you should take your regular diet including a bit of egg, fish and any other form of animal protein that you used to take. Too much of a veggie, fruity and watery diet can trigger this problem again.ARS ALB covers 'ill effects of excess veggie and fruity diet'.

12X is not the same as 12C. Latter is a bit higher potency. It would be best if you got 12C potency. Otherwise get 30C.
