Help My 14 year old son suffers from Social Phobia

I have tried everything for my son it is killing me to watch. This all started 3 years ago when he threw up on the school bus he was going to his first day of middle school. Ever since he has this fear of getting sick and people will see. Every morning is a ritual I watch him panic and vomit the very thing he dont want to do becuase his fear had taken control. It hurts me to watch this. you see it start from the pacing to him grabbing his hands you can see the fear in his eyes then all of the sudden he is vomiting. now 3 years later he starts high school in 3 weeks. I took him to see a doctor they dignosed him with social aniexty or a fear of the aniexty itself its not just school its parties, the movies with his friends. etc. They wanted to put him on zolft and give him valium . at 14 I fear him taking these drugs so I have not filled them. I need something that will help him bring him down so he can function and learn to deal with the aniexty. School starts soon I just want him to enjoy these years of his life and not suffer like this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please fill out a questionnaire as the information you have provided is insufficient to prescribe a remedy.

A homeopath basically needs to understand what it feels like to be your son, physically, emotionally and mentally.

Hmm.. my analysis points to another remedy. Arsenicum will have more fastidiousness and restlessness. It is also one of the few remedies in the materia medica, which is universally ameliorated from warmth. The patient here does not like when its hot outside and loves cold and snow. This is not an Arsenicum state.

The most peculiar symptoms here are fear of vomiting and a delusion that he is being laughed at.

Only one remedy in the materia medica covers these two symptoms and that is Lachesis Mutus. It is also ameliorated by music and has great amount of "inhibition" as well.

My prescription would be 3 doses of Lachesis Mutus 30c to be taken as follows:

Lachesis Mutus 30c, dissolve 2 pellets in 250 ml spring water (let them melt in the water), stir well and take a sip from there 3 times at 30 mins gap. The doses are to be taken for 1 day only. Take the doses empty stomach in the morning. From next day, no more doses.

Report in 1 week after dosing please.


1/. Nothing should enter the mouth for 30 minutes prior to, or after taking the remedy.
2/. Do not touch the tablets with your hands, tip them into the cap of the container they came in and then into the water .
3/. Avoid coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks and large amounts of chocolate, except where this would cause a drastic change in consumption
4/. Avoid wearing perfume/aftershave, or exposure to anything with a strong smell while under treatment. This includes any and all essential oils, and incense.
5/. Avoid the consumption of excessively spicey foods
6/. The use of medicinal herbs, either as 'teas' or supplements should be AVOIDED during Homoeopathic treatment, as should the use of over the counter medication, unless this has been recommended by an MD.
7/. Nothing of a medicinal nature should be applied to the skin
