Dry eyes due to Sjogren's

I am posting for someone else who has very severe eye symptoms. Gets worse in the afternoon. Diagnosed with Sjogren's and it has also affected the kidneys but she wishes to have relief from the awful eye symptoms. The lacrimal gland no longer makes tears so her eyes are very dry and get very crusty. She is constantly needing to put drops in but they don't help.
Any advice for her to try?

In answer to your questions:

1. How old is the problem and how did it start:
She was diagnosed in December of 2017 but says that "as for the first time it started, my eyes is always red for no reason, it went away after I went to optometrist for a while and after that it went back again. The doctor did tear test, and found out that I have very dry eyes, and they suggest that I might have Sjogren. "

2. Other health problems:
Renal interstitial nephritis

3. Normal weight

4. Whether feels thirsty and how much water is taken:
From her: "I often felt thirsty and i drank a lot of water, probably like a gallon for a way. "

5. What foods does she like:
"I like spicy food, soup,"

6. Constipation or loose stools:
"bowel movement, once a day or once every 2 days, it was varies sometimes, hard, sometime watery"

7. Medical history of parents:
"My dad got a family history of diabetes, so because of that he always watch what he ate and so far he is able to maintaining it low. He used to have gastric acid a few years ago, but he is fine now. My mom don't have any blood related issues. but she does have asthma allergies and cholesterol"

8. Her medical situation:
"Apart from Sjogren, i have acute renal interstitial nephritis. i have no other issues. "

9. Anything that aggravates or ameliorates the problem:
"I found out lately that when i am very tired and in lots of stress or angry , the eyes always getting worse. and also when i am in a room where the AC is full on. oh and of course alcohol also made it worse. So far that is what i found out. "

Again thanks so much for your advice.

Take Sulphur 30 three doses at 3 hour interval.
The medicine should be taken during daytime, not at night. Do not take any sour food and drink for two weeks. Update two days after taking medicine.

Thank you and I am wondering if I can ask your opinion. What would you think about her taking Sepia 200C ?
Blossom3 9 months ago
Does she have Sepia symptoms?
telescope 9 months ago
I don't know. This suggestion came from a kind of psychic healer. So not sure I can trust it but wanted to run it by you. I am new at studying homeopathy. I want to give this patient the best advice.

Sepia persons are indifferent towards others .They have history of liver and uterus problems. They are also highly auspicious of others. They do not trust others. They are constipated on account of disturbance of liver function.
Does she have these symptoms?
Let her have Sulphur first. It may solve the problem or show what medicine is required.
telescope 9 months ago
She does suffer from constipation.
OK I like your idea of starting with Sulphur.
30 C 3x a day?
Blossom3 9 months ago
Only for one day and then stop. Do not take for more than one day, that would be overdose and harmful.
telescope 9 months ago
OK thank you

She finally was able to obtain the Sulphur and did it as you suggested for that one day and she says that her eyes are not as dry as before.

She wants to know if she takes it again will it help even more or should she try something else?

Do not repeat medicine before ten days. You may repeat if symptoms do not go away after ten days.

She says she only took it 4 days ago. Eyes better but still dry but will wait until 10 days have passed and will take it again if eyes still dry.
