Nat Phos not wrkng for acidity. Continue it?

I have dyspepsia (burning in stomach). I'm taking Nat Phos 6x for a week. I initially took 2 tablets after meals - twice a day. Finding no improvement, I increased to 3 tablets. Now after a week, there is no improvement at all. Should I continue taking it or should I stop and try something else? Please advise.

Thanks for your responses. The acidity problem started 4 months back. I had heartburn and burning in stomach and hips. Lots of flatulence too. It was mainly due to taking very delayed food. Because of work and other committments I used to delay my food even though I will be very hungry. As per doctor's advice took nexium first nd then prilosec for couple of weeks. Then it became ok. Then again had irregular food. The problem started again. Again took Prilosec for 2 weeks. Initially it worked well for the first 3 or 4 days. But then the problem started again slowly. Stopped Prilosec(omeprazole magnesium). Then the problem also stopped. No problems for the next 3 weeks. Then it started again. Started Nat Phos 6x from last week. No improvements yet. Stomach burn is still there though not always. It's bearble but makes me very uncomfortable.There has been always a great amount of flatulence from the day the problem started first (4 months ago). No other problems. I'm taking no medications. I'm taking food properly now and don't leave myself hungry at all.

Will someone respond?

Drsajid, Pankaj, Joe, Murthy...It looks like some cold war is going on between some of you. But can you please voice your opinion? Hope you would all help.

Yes Mr. phildis123. i m also of the same opinion. instead of betterment of homeopathy some experts r here for arguments amongst themself. whereas they may discuss their experience for the betterment of homeopathy cause. Arguments never ends.

Hope this little thing they know.

Please accept my apologies for not having responded to your post. This was due to the fact that I have been compelled by a few trolls on this forum to respond to their inane posts and this results in my inability to help you which I normally do if only I had clicked on your post which you had first posted on October 28 and only saw right now for the first time.

It is interesting to note that you have already taken Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets twice daily and that you did not experience any response.

I would like to get some details of your ailment to enable me to advise you further. Please answer the following questions.

How long have your experienced any gastric problem and how did it first start ?

What exactly do you experience before you first started on the NP ?

Describe precisely what you now feel after you have taken the 3 tablets after a meal.

Do you experience any burning sensation in your abdomen ? If so when do you feel it worst ?

Can you get another pack of Nat Phos 6x of another brand ?

I forgot to add in my last message. i m a new b in homeopathy. i may suggest u to try to avoid milk and its products, in its tru form (u may take curd/ yoghurt etc. it may be best if u settle the milk after sunset and take as much as possible in night or early morning, before sun set)

Milk contains lactic acid which acts as a catalectic agent for inducing acidic conditions. If u want to take milk as it is then u may boil it with little tea leave or finely crushed green cardimom.
Further u may take a few dose of cal. sulf 200x intermittently and again start with Nat. Phos 6x or 12 x

Another case of Nat.phos failure. Today is a bad day.!!


Dear Phildis

You were under tratment from Joe and Drsajid asked some questions, for which you replied.

So, I expect them to come back and answer you.

Why don't you consult a competent classical homeopath near you, who takes a complete case, and gives you one medicine at a time, and waits to observe response.

There are no quick fixes in homeopathy.
