2nd attempt...............hot flashes Page 5 of 6

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I took the sulphur in water 2 days ago and I can report that I have had some improvement. Only one flash yesterday and so far one today and much milder than usual. I also slept quite well last night. I am just hoping that this will continue.
Again it is a very long time since I took the sepia. I was taking 5 pillules at a time and I think I started out at one dose a day. I probably took 5 or six doses.

After a bit more thought I did not take the sepia that often. I recall that I had read that sepia does not repeat well so I remember waiting and waiting before taking the next dose. I wasn't sure if I actually did not take enough.
I had one flash yesterday evening and a couple early this morning whilst still in bed. None since then. The warmth of the bed is always a trigger factor.

Flashes coming more frequently this afternoon so the remedy effects lasted about 2 1/2 days.

If you have the same bottle preserved, you can take a couple more doses from the same medicinal solution when ever symptoms are strong. But it's IMPORTANT that you shake the bottle up and down for four times just before the dose. Keep the bottle away from sunlight and moisture.

Unlike dry doses these can be repeated frequently(but give a gap of atleast a week) but the same caution needs to be maintained. If a dose creates aggravation stop with that dose and report.

Maheeru,
I haven't yet taken another dose. I wanted to run this by you first. Can you have an aggravation after an improvement?
I was doing so well and then the flashes began to return and after a couple more days I then had a day of very intense and frequent flashes (every 30 minutes)with a lot of sweating, unusually so the sweat was visible on my face. I also started to feel weepy again. I am now in my second day of this situation. The flashes are only slightly less than yesterday and I am still feeling weepy.

Yes after improvement symptoms can return after a period but would be in lesser intensity than before. If they return in more intensity then the base of disease which we call miasmatic influence could be a contributing factor.

You can go ahead with water dose after shaking the bottle. Let us see if we can get benefit out of sulph. doses before making a move.

I took another dose in water yesterday but I have not had any improvement at all.

I thought I should mention that I had a night of itching as I had once before. I have also had a headache for 2 days now. The whole of the right side of my face is aching and my right nasal passage is blocked. I took pain killers on going to bed last night but when I woke this morning the headache was still there.

still have the headache. Flashes are more frequent, at least one an hour.

The itching and headache ---have you had them before or completely new?

Did you shake the bottle just before the dose? If yes how many times?

So with this dose there was no improvement on main complaints at all?

I had a similar headache and itching after the first 200 dry dose of sulphur (see my post 10/30).
I shook the bottle 5 times.
Today I have had fewer hot flashes but when I have them they are strong with a lot of sweat on my face.
The sweat on my face is a new symptom, i wasn't getting that befoer.

Oh i was not asking about the old symptoms after starting sulph. I'm asking if these were there much earlier---much earlier before you started sulph. doses?

Has there been any positive change with main complaints?

Sorry. I misunderstood. I did not previously have these symptoms. I have in the past been prone to headaches but not lasting as long as these did.
As for improvements, I have been sleeping better. Last night I was woken four times with hot flashes but each time I went right back to sleep afterwards.
This morning I have only had one flash since getting up so that too is an improvement
