Umbilical Hernia Guidance

Hello, I’m really hoping that you can help me. I feel like I’ve been looking all over the internet but have not found solid assistance.
I currently have Diastasis Recti & am working on healing this through appropriate exercises. I have also developed a small umbilical hernia about a year ago. Every now and again, I will get a burning sensation along my lines alba and down the left side of my abdominal wall (from rib to pelvic bone). I have also been dealing with lower back pain since 2016.
I would like to find a homeopathic remedy for myself, but I really do t know how to do so. Initially, I came across a remedy for Lycopodium clavatum 200C, 1 dose (6 pellets) taken every other day. I know that you are to stop when you see a change or when it’s not working, but I can’t really tel if anything is happening at all. Initially, I thought it might be but the hernia remains the same size and the bouts with the abdominal wall I think are about the same.
I have been following the lycopodium regimen for 6 weeks, which I think I’m now learning is far too long.
Could you please help me to get on the right track?

Thanks so much!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please stop Lycopodium and start taking Plumbum metallicum 30c, twice daily for 7 days and report back.

Oh, how far apart should I space each dose? Once in the morning and once at night?

Yes morning and night.

Hi again. So, today has been 7 days (I have one more dose tonight). I’d say the last couple of days, my abdominal wall felt better, more stable, but the raise of the umbilical hernia itself has remained the same. Is this something that CAN go away with time and homeopathy? Thanks again for your help!

I meant size, not raise. The size of the hernia has remained the same.

Continue with Plumbum met for another week.

Okay thank you! Unfortunately, on my 2nd day of my 2nd week, I’ve run out of the plumbum met...So much for my skills of observation. I have to order it online, so I will be going days without it. Any suggestions? Will this matter? Do I just take it for another 7 when it comes in or ???

Just observe your symptom for now. You may not need to take anymore Plumbum if or when you started to get improve without it.

Ok thanks! So I understand, should I be watching to see whether the hernia itself becomes smaller? And also, how long a time period do I observe over? I am quite new to homeopathy, so I’m not entirely certain about even beginner level things!

observe the size of hernia or burning sensation that you have mentioned earlier or lower back pain until you get the remedy.

It is always good to keep a record with intensity, duration of the symptoms / illness by using a scale from 1 - 10 so it will be easy to see how much you have improved ( or not improved )from the first day you started the remedy.
