Thank you for your response. I'm not clear as to whether I'm looking for changes in my scalp itching or my trigeminal neuralgia which is causing the sharp pains and sensivity along that nerve along that gum line. Please explain. Thanks.

if merc sol works on you, there is going to be improvements in all areas.

merc has been chosen based on your totality of symptoms.

i have suggested 30c potency as its a trial dose and also the pathology is physical.

once it shows the reaction, you can take a higher sustained dose.
rishimba last decade
Thank you Risimba. I will try and report within 7 days from start.

I have the Merc Sol30C pellets. How many pellets every 4 hrs? Do I just put pellets under my tongue as prescribed on package?
celerystick last decade
you can take 4 pellets under the tongue as one dose.

the pellets need to be chewed, not crushed or bitten. let then dissolve in the mouth and get absorbed there.

dont take any food or water or rinse your mouth one hour before or after taking the doses.

please refrain from coffee, mint, raw onions and garlic etc.

Since my early 20’s I have suffered depression,I have been on antidepressants for a short time only,now understanding myself alittle more I concentrate of eating and drinking well,allowing treats every now and again,I have stopped smoking for over a year.I try and exercise 3 times a week.I really noticed a whole lot of things changing around 3 years ago,skin pigmentation,swollen painful breasts,heavy periods,tearful at the slightest thing,then along came the hair changes.I currently massage my scalp once to twice a week with organic coconut oil and afew drops of lavender or tea tree oil,which eases the pain alittle.I take b complex for my hormonal sanity,which I find helps me a whole lot, I sometimes take solgars hair,skin and nails.Im also taking the Kelp which I have mentioned in the questionnaire.My chest pains are also a worry ,although they have eased,meaning I don’t lay in bed at night holding myself thinking Im going to die,I still feel strange,I sometimes lay there listening to what sounds like a valve clicking when I breathe out,I also fear taking deep breaths in and out through the day because it feels tight!
My hair problem is taking a lot of my time up,I am living in a foreign country and feel very isolated,also I am not working out here,so spend a lot of time worrying about my health and looking at my thinning hair.I have read all 7 pages of this forum post and I would greatly appreciate any help ,advice you can offer,I have copied and pasted the questionaire and its all filled in but I didnt want to post it until I has asked first.Many thanks Jo

Tight chest pains, which Doctor said was stress related .Allergies,sneezing,runny nose. IBS. Keratosis on upper arms.Not so nice vaginal discharge. Skin outbreaks from time to time,greasy congested skin,the longest problem being my lips,I have dry lips but just on the inside I seem to get a build up of extra soft skin,often worse when Im stressed and aggravated by acidic foods and drinks(try almost everything for this problem) .For all these things I try and eat & drink well and exercise

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
My hair problem started around 3 years ago, I moved abroad in 2007 which I think may have made things alittle worse ,as I was having panic attacks and chest pains.

Evening time and also mid morning.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.
Although I don’t know what brings the suffering on in the first place,I feel what makes it worse is when I don’t wash my hair often enough,I can wash it one day and it will ease( maybe because of the massage during washing which improves the problem) then the day after it will hurt again.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
I may have an Hormonal inbalance. The move abroad was very stressful for me and caused panic attacks and chest pains.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
I feel happier and healthier in the hot weather, I like dry weather, I do not like to feel cold ,although once out in the cold and active I feel energized.

My true friends I have lots of love for. I worry about my parents, they are going through difficult times in their own relationship and I am away in a different country,they have been great support over the years while I brought up my son,who is also in the country where my parents are. I feel terrible guilt sometimes that my son has made me seek so much help from my parents ,making me feel like a burden to them.My partner is a wonderful man and I feel very blessed to have met him!What I want most is for my son to be truly happy.

please take PHOSPHORUS 30C every 4 hours for 2 days and then stop the doses.

however, after taking a dose or two, if you feel any changes for the better or worse, you should not take the rest of the doses.

if you dont feel any changes in two days, you should just wait and watch the symptoms for the next 7 days and report after 10 days.

once you know this remedy is the right remedy, a sustained dose of higher potency will permanently cure all your problems.

one dose consists of 4 drops of remedy mixed with about 10 ml of water slowly sipped up in empty stomach and clean mouth.

dont take any food or water or wash your mouth one hour before or after taking the dose.

please avoid excess of salt, sweet and raw onions, garlic, mint and coffee for these two days.

please report after 10 days.

Kind Regards
jo7124 last decade
best wishes..

try to buy a good brand like boiron or reckeweg.

much depends on the brand.
rishimba last decade
Hi Rishimba,great Ill look into them,I only know Nelsons from the uk.
Can I ask when you say a dose is 4 drops of remedy ,does that mean I need pillules or liquid form of the remedy?Im alittle confused sorry!
thanks Joanne
jo7124 last decade
liquid doses work better in medium and high potencies and thus i would advise you to buy dilutions only.

4 drops of the liquid remedy mixed with 10 ml of water would typically be one dose.
rishimba last decade
Dear Rishimba,
You recently suggested I take PHOSPHORUS.I have managed to order some in liquid form, but it will be delivered to Guernsey Channel Islands as I am spending christmas there,where I will pick it up and start taking after the new year.Would it be ok for me to report after 10 days from then?

Many thanks
Have a nice christmas and new year.
jo7124 last decade
thats fine..

wish you too a merry christmas and happy new year.
rishimba last decade
Dear Rishimba,
I took PHOSPHORUS for the two days suggested to me ,I only encountered a slight headache during taking them the first day but I put this down to not having coffee.
.My scalp pain is stil bad.I did notice three slight changes,my stools were lighter brown,although it still took me awhile to get off to sleep I was calmer on going to bed.I was also alittle lighter spirited through the day.
I did not see any other changes,with some ailments its difficult as they are not always present.

Look forward to hearing from you,many thanks Jo
jo7124 last decade
Dear Rishimba,
I have just remembered something else,last week I was being very picky with my food as things didnt seem to taste nice.My mouth tasted alittle metallic also.
Thanks Jo
jo7124 last decade
please take PHOSPHORUS 200C some 5 doses, one dose every 12 hours.

after 5 doses, please wait for a week and then report to me.
rishimba last decade
Hi Rishimba,
Thank you for getting back to me!I will try and find somewhere here (Serbia)to get that potency.We do have some post problems,so if I cannot find it here I will have to wait for our trip back to the uk in 7 weeks.In the meantime I wonder if maybe I should try again with the first dosage you gave me ,see if I notice anything different second time round?
Many thanks Jo
jo7124 last decade
yes, you may take the same potency for some longer period..

take it twice a day for some days for about 4 to 6 days.

stop when you notice any difference..
rishimba last decade
Try to be not less than six hours of sleep a day, to develop regular sleep habits. Note that diet, eat protein-rich and trace element-rich foods, eat more vegetables, fruit, eat less fatty and high sugar foods. Also recommend to read Myhairway book, about hair regrowth

Dear Rishimba,
I tried PHORPHORUS again for a longer period but didnt notice anything,I had a break then tried again ,I have now noticed I feeling less restless in bed and seem to be falling to sleep easier.My scalp pain however continues,I notice one week after my period ends my breast cyst begins to hurt again,then a week after that my scalp pain begins again.I am taking evening primrose oil ,which im keeping a close eye on,seem to have noticed alittle improvement but what has amazed me is my KP on my upper arms have calmed down radically!!big smileS!!!

If the sleeping improvement has come from taking the PHORPHORUS ,should I continue to take it on a regular basis or should you only take it for brief spells?

Thankyou for all your help!

Leona ,Great I will look out for myhairway book!
Over here in Belgrade the open air markets are fantastic,we take our little trolley to a big one every weekend and stock up on so much fresh produce,its made me really think about eating wisely!
