Nux Vomica: $4.19


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Very sick from one dose of Nux Vomica 30C

Hi everyone, here is information about me, but I was given Nux v and took it one time and had horrible facial flushing, severe nausea, restlessness, insomnia, and chilled body and its bad effects have lasted through till today. I also have not been able to have a bowel movement in 2 days, which is making things worse. Can it cause any kind of die off? along with new probiotics and amino acids?

Describe your main suffering and from how long? Stomach distress like IBS that grew to gallbladder problems, ulcers, and chronic severe nausea over the course of 6 years.
Exact location? stomach
Any cause which you feel for this ailment? high stress, abusive environment
What other physical sufferings do you have in your body? Migraines and dizziness either as a result of medicines to control nausea or on their own
What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings? an anxiety about vomiting (emetophobia) and depression at the thought of always getting worse and never getting better in my life
When did it all start? 6 years ago
What are the things which aggravate or ameliorate your suffering? Having correct bowel movements every day that make me feel like I have eliminated all, prescription medicine for nausea. Nux vomica has made me have a reaction I never expected, a lot worse.
When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather? usually cooler and dryer
What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions? many meats, especially red meat I am put off by. I usually crave sweets, but usually too sick to eat them.
How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive? Less than normal.
How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive? less than normal, very poor appetite.
How is your bowel movement and stool type (Constipation etc.)? constipation most all the time with random spells of painful diarrhea if not able to go well over the course of several weeks ( the diarrhea produces chills, and sweating)
How sleep, how are your dreams? Sleep is okay once I can actually get to sleep but it takes a long time, dreams don't happen very often, if they do, they are about a fear.
Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? what I am going through now is the strangest reaction to medicines I have had so far.
What medications have been taken earlier?
How do you look like (Appearance (fat, thin, smart, tall, lean etc)? Female of 5"6, 123 pounds, most of my weight carried in thighs and stomach, with very skinny wrists and ankles
If your are female how is your menstrual cycles and from how long (normal, irregular, painful, clotted, colour etc.)PCOS, cystic ovaries, cycles are better and more regular when there is little to no stress, very irregular as of late.
Family history - What major diseases are running in your family?high blood pressure in father, migraines in mother
Any other information?
Homeopathic practitioner told me to avoid nux vomica even though she used electro dermal testing to test its compatibility with me, unless I had to have it, she wants me to dilute it in a glass of water and only take a few drops.

She wants me to continue my liver tonic 1 drop at morning and night in water, that contains 12x nux vomica.

Do I sound like a nux vomica person?

thank you so so much, I am new to homeopathic medicine, and having this reaction is worrisome.

1.Are you getting angry easily?Yes, I get frustrated from not being able to articulate my thoughts and being so overwhelmed by anxiety and panic that I can't communicate, which makes me angry
2.Describe more about depression? Depression started in late high school 7 years ago when I had to move cities and lose all my friends, I was so alone, ate lunch in the bathroom and got depression. After college, I got better with depression. But the worse my health has gotten, the more depression comes, and finally, depression is at its peak because I feel like I will always be ill, after seeing loads of doctors and having so much testing and not getting better.
3.Always weeping? Yes, break out in crying a lot, from being frustrated and hopeless
4.Feel comfortable on consolation? not completely comfortable, it helps a whole lot, if I could I would have someone sitting with me all day paying attention to all my worries and reassuring me, but it doesn't make health problems go away
5.Constipation alternate with diarrhea? Mostly all constipation with diarrhea every few weeks to a month if I don't eliminate enough or stools are too hard
6.change of consitency and charector of stool every time? Pretty similar stools when I am going every day, sometimes if too constipated, they come out hard and small.

Thank you so so much
