I was wondering if I could get any advice on schizophrenia. I would like to use homeopathy to supplement my own healing and need help finding the right remedy.
I am getting acupuncture at the moment and the doctor suggested I try homeopathy to help heal me along.
If I could get the right questionnaire I would really appreciate it.

Thank you so much for the help. I have been taking the remedies as prescribed.
The voices are under control for the most part.
I still have mood swings and uncontrollable body movements. I go up and down really fast and have crying spells. I also have lots of depressive thoughts.
What would you recommend?

I am suffering from 5 years of schizophrenia and are in homeopathic treatment already for 4 years,
I made a lot of progress, but i suggest you do search a physician whos working in the traditionla calssic homeopathic way, this is very important.
I found a good practioneer near home who helped me a lot, but I can tell you, it is very important to see him personaly and go forward a remedy once a time, and not how the suggest a mix of remedys.
I can harm you instead of help you in this way. One remedy a time, and cause the strong dynamic of the illness and the allopathic medicine you take it is very important to find out the right effective way to take the homeopathic remedy together with the practitioner who supervise you.
It can be possible to cure schizophrenia, but do it in the right way. Otherwise you will abonde homeopathy and lose a good chance!!
Greetings and good luck

Sorry for the late reply, I was in the hospital for about a month. I've been taking what was instructed for more than a week.
I still have
wringing hand movements
eyes rolling back
Though its a lot less, it still preoccupies me.I basically spend most of the day walking.
Is there anything I should change?
