PCOS cure seeker- Weight gain & constipation

Hello homeopaths, I am desperately looking for a homeopathic remedy to treat my PCOS and would really appreciate the help. I have successfully reduced the cysts on my ovaries, regulated my cycles but I am still suffering with acne and weight gain despite cutting all wheat, flours and sugars. I ate very low carb. This helped me lose some weight but Unfortunately I broke out in an extremely itchy skin rash between and around my chest area and horizontally across my abdomen. The rash was also on my back area horizontally where my bra line is and then horizontally where my trousers sit. It is worse in the summer when I sweat more. This rash was so extreme I could not take it so I had to eat lots of carbs to stop the rash. It would disappear within two days of eating carbs. So I have to eat healthy complex carbs like oats, sweet potato and butternut squash to keep carbohydrate levels moderate. But this stops me from losing weight. I feel suffocated by this PCOS. There's no way out.

1. Age
23 years old

2. Male or Female or other

4. weight

5. Height

6. country


7. climate
Cold winters Warm summers

8. List of your complaints
I have suffered with PCOS for 8 years now. Since then I have tried to lose weight. I only found successful results through less eating almost starving and on low carb. In winter I gain weight and in summer I lose a little due to easier dietary restrictions. I eat mostly low carb foods such as vegetables (broccoli, aubergine, cauliflower, red peppers, courgettes etc.) and some animal protein but as I mentioned I do have to have some healthy complex carbs now to avoid the horrible skin rash. I avoid all wheat, rice and grains. But I am still over weight. I struggle a lot with body image. I cannot look at myself in the mirror. I always try to breathe in to make myself appear slimmer. I have been battling with body image for years. I don't really get results from exercising. Nothing seems to work for me. As a child I was very slim and began gaining weight when I was 14-15 just after I began my period. I am also very constipated and have poor digestion. I was constipated since I was a baby. Struggled with very hard and dry stools. I try to drink more water I forget sometimes as I am hardly thirsty unless in very hot weather. Have cold feet sometimes cold hands and feet. I have acne on jaw line forehead and back. Very oily skin.

9. Since how long are you suffering from each complaint
Skin rash- 4 years
PCOS- 8 years
Acne- 8 years
Constipation- Whole life

15. One situation that had a
big effect on you?
Moving house.

16. Important Question.
Current and previous remedies/medicines you are taking or took in the past?
I have never tried homeopathy. I take natural supplements such as chromium and a multivitamin with high strength vit d.

17. Educational Qualifications of the patient
I am a Nutritional Therapist.

18. Nature of work, what do you do for living?
I work from home as a Nutritional Therapist.

19. Important Question.
Mind-behavior, anger, irritability, hurry,
impatient…and so on.. How are you different from other persons, public speaking or not, you can describe all of the details about your behavior, love and affections.

As a child I was very quiet. I was not able to speak up in class. I never asked questions when I needed to or never asked for help. When I became a teenager around 18 years old I was able to conversate more and was not as shy. I found it difficult to concentrate in class and self-study. I was falling behind in work and almost failed my exams. I have PMS symptoms so tend to get angry and more emotional before periods. I can be a loving person but find it difficult to show love to someone. I appreciate receiving love. I am very attached to my family and home. Found it difficult when my sister got married and moved out. I do not adapt to change very well.

20. Color of the secretions/discharges e.g
Pus, urine, stool, sputum, Saliva etc.
Vaginal secretions are generally clear. Stool can be from very dark brown to light brown- constipation makes this vary. Saliva is thick in mornings but generally clear.

For Females Only
21. When is the period during the month approx. date?
Any monthly cycle issues? Regular, early, late, before problems, after problems,
pain, any other discharges?
Period has been around 30th- end of the month into the beginning of the month for the past year. When my sister got married I had a delayed period for two weeks. Other than that I have been very regular. I get a lot of clots normally and heavy bleeding. My most recent period which is now has been dark brown almost black blood clots but no blood flow. This has never happened before.

22. Are you pregnant? If yes, please give pregnancy start date? Any current issues?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

Please take Phytolacca Decandra 1x, 4 drops mixed in 2 sips of mineral water, 3 times a day, for 5 days.

Also, buy, Berberis Aquifolium 30C, for later use.

Many prayers for you.

Thank-you for getting back to me so quickly I really appreciate your help and hope that this works for me. Am I able to get this medicine delivered to the UK?

Also someone recommended calc carb to me, should I take this as well? This is my first time using homeopathy so any advice would be really helpful.

Many many thanks.

And I cant find the 1X strength of Phytolacca Decandra in my country. We only have 3X. If I take 3X will I need to adjust the dose? (4 drops mixed in 2 sips of mineral water 3 times a day for 5 days)

How much ml or ounces of the liquid will I need? Is one ounce enough?

"We only have 3X."
Please go for it. No need to adjust dose.

Please get the smallest bottle.

No need for Calc Carb at this time.

More prayers.......

I have received my medicine.
I just wanted to make sure it was correct.

I have started taking 4 drops of Phytolacca Dec three times a day.

Should I take the Berberis Aquifolium pills after the 5 days course of Phytolacca Dec? And there are many pills in there so how many do I take and how long for?

Many thanks for you help.
May Allah reward you and I pray this gives me shiffa.

I have also noticed that the pills say 3X and not 30c. Can I still take them?
hannah1 6 years ago

I forgot to mention that I have tinnitus. From when I was young I occasionally experienced tinnitus perhaps once a month for under an hour. Since Jan 2015 I have had permanent tinnitus. It never goes sometimes severe sometimes ignorable.


This is my second day of taking Phytolacca Decandra and I have the following symptoms:
- Just came on my period again after two weeks. (My last period was no new blood only old blood clots. This is fresh new blood).

- I am getting the rash that I usually get when I lose weight and sweat.

- My tinnitus is slightly louder or more apparent

- I have a low mood. I occasionally get a low mood where I don't want to be around anyone and feel a bit sad.

Please advise me! Thank-you :(

Dr. Nawaz I am taking Phytolacca Berry as you told me to. This is my 5th day of taking it. You told me to this for 5 days. Should I stop taking it now? What reason did you prescribe this one to me?

You also prescribed me Berberis Aquifolium for later use. I currently have this in pill form of 3X not 30C. How many should I take and when can I start taking these?

Have you prescribed me more medicines for the tinnitus and low mood? I need the medicine to help my weight loss. I have a family history of hypothyroidism and i eat very healthy with hardly any carbs in my diet yet I am not slim. I need herbal support to encourage weight loss. Will Phytolacca Decandra help with my weight loss?
hannah1 6 years ago
". Will Phytolacca Decandra help with my weight loss?
Yes Boss. it will help in reducing the weight. Continue for 1 more day. Then, start the other as directed.

The reason is to address all of your issues.

Salaam Dr. Nawaz,
Thank-you so much for your help. Sorry I know I ask a lot of questions I just want to make sure I'm taking the medicines correctly and for the correct doses.

I have realised that I ordered 3X Berberis Aquifolium and not 30c. Can I still take the 3x and will I need to adjust the dose?

May Allah reward you for all your help.

Many many thanks.

"Can I still take the 3x and will I need to adjust the dose? "

Aa doctor nawaz ,

I've just been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I suspect that it is hashimotos as I have all the symptoms of it. I have extreme heaviness in my throat. I've not lost any weight neither has my acne improved.

Please help and advise,

Many thanks.
hannah1 6 years ago
Please stay with the current doctor, face to face treatment. Good luck.
