Was it acting more like a constitutional remedy? was it doing more deep action than I was thinking about? It happened three separate times (again, before my pendulum attempts) all in exactly the same place.

Interesting stuff. I'm pretty sure that nat mur was the remedy I was on that kept making my elbow eczema/lyme-looking rash flare up. It hasn't shown up since the last time I took the remedy (well, it hung around for a few months, but that's when it started.)

and I'd have the same answer for you! as it's orange it does have some overlap with you. Meaning it wouldn't do nothing...it would do something but not likely get you to where you needed to be.

Hi there....have you googled: nat mur + constipation? There's quite a lot written about it.

A polycrest means that it is a remedy with a wide range of actions. It can work for many different symptoms, providing it matches the totality of symptoms. I can't list all that it's used for because it would take several posts, but yes...constipation is one of the many things. So if you look at a materia medica : http://abchomeopathy.com/r.php/Nat-m what you will see is a bunch of symptoms, and she doesn't need to fit all of them. However all her major symptoms must be present.

Don't be thrown off that it *can* also be used for diarrhea....many remedies are like this (and partially why they end up being polycrests!) It's also got strong indications for constipation.

As far as what it is? It's salt. I can't say if it's *the* remedy for your kiddo, but it certainly is used for constipation, so I do wish you luck. Hopefully you will see some changes!

My success story ~ about two years ago, I had hemrroids that were AWFUL. I already had a consult scheduled with a surgeon to have them removed when someone at MDC suggested Hammelis. I took the first dose in the car and literally felt them disappearing. Two days later, hemmies were GONE, never to return again .

I've been reading parts of this thread for quite a while. I hope my question has not been asked. Are there any homeopathic remedies for sensitve teeth. I don't know whats wrong with me but for the past few weeks my teeth are very sensitive to hot,cold or anything. Even just sitting here they ache. Its very bothersome. I don't know what has caused it. I have had minor sensitivity in the past but nothing like this. I tried a toothpaste for sensitive teeth which did not help. Went to the dentist and he said I should rinse w fluoride which I don't want to do. Thinking maybe I'm clenching my teeth at night but am not sure. Been taking magnesium to relax the muscles. What could cause this ? something must be wrong but I don't know what. Any homeopathic remedies that might help me? Cell salts? anything?
thanks so much!!

The baby is due any day. I had contractions last night from 8pm till about 4 am. They were not very painful, but the baby's very active movements and the odd feelings really through me off. I felt chilly and shaky and vulnerable. I honestly didn't expect those feelings. Having DH hold me helped quite a bit. I woke up this morning continuing to feel this way. I feel pretty scared. I decided to try some homeopathy. Aconite was a small yes, but I haven't had any changes. I tried Lyco because of the description, plus I've had a ton of heartburn. I can't say it helped. Sepia also came up as an option, which is my const. remedy, I took it, but am still feeling kind of weepy. Gels seemed like a possibility, but tested no. Only other option is Puls, but that came back no.

I feel so surprised by these feelings. I think of myself as the strong one in my family, able to get through anything, yet, I'm an emotional mess right now.

eta: first two births were pretty traumatic: 72 hour posterior labor, and then breech unwanted c-section.

Hugs. What about rescue remedy? Or a flower essence?

Hope it passes soon.

What about cimicifuga? If these are real contractions and labor has started, it might be an appropriate remedy to keep it moving along.

hey darlin.' Consider kali phos and calc phos as cell salts and I would support with flower essences. Perhaps some mimulus, walnut and star of bethlehem for right now. You could also test aspen, but I think you may be more mimulus right now.

thanks so much Panser - it worked. i am feeling much better and excited about the upcoming birth. I had been focused so much on homeopathy that I didn't think about my other tools. Guess i should make a cheat sheet for that.

bluets - thanks for the suggestion. I think things are coming along nicely, though, I feel ok about the slowness of this - kind of enjoying it.


Panser - I updated how we are doing with our const. remedies in the big const remedy thread. just an FYI
post #634 of 864
well, you have plenty of tools, but no one remembers everything all the time! Glad you were able to shift things.

Hello everybody! I haven't participated in this thread before. But I had a dream last night about a remedy that my baby should take, and I woke up wanting to ask Panserbjorne about it.

We've been trying to heal a staph infection (impetigo-type) in my 16 month old for the past three months -- for the past month or so it has seemed in remission, i.e. no active sores. We have tried so, so, so many things, and finally hit upon a couple that seemed to really help. But I don't believe the staph is totally gone yet, even though the blisters are no longer showing up. His skin is having trouble healing from small scratches, and some other things that seemed to go along with when he had the staph more actively.

Anyway, I haven't been worrying about it too much, just watching it. And last night I dreamed that I was looking in a catalog, and saw a remedy for "stubborn" staph infections, and looked at it, and it said "vomica". I remember thinking that that was odd, but that I was certain I should order it.

Is nux vomica a good treatment for what I've described? If so, in what dose for a 16 month old with those symptoms and history? I'm pretty certain I want to try it, but I just wanted to be sure I wouldn't cause other symptoms or something. Any thoughts, Panserbjorne or others? Thank you!!

do you think there is harm in using homeopathy to kick start labor?
I want to respect that this is partially the baby's decision, and that this is showing me my baby's personality, but I'm getting antsy. Also I feel a little bit like a watched pot. DH and I are by ourselves until Sunday night and would love to labor at home alone.

With pendulum approval I use cimi and caulo for the past couple of days, except for cramping and some contractions nothing real has happened.

eta: I'm a week overdue which isn't long. I have 6 days until my scheduled section.
post #637 of 864
Hi M2S! Wow! Time flies! I can't believe you are about to have your baby! I will be sending you some good thoughts and positive energy!

Are you a week overdue by known conception date? Or by an ultrasound, or date of LMP? If you really are a week overdue, I can't imagine how there would be harm in having homeopathy help out a bit. I also have several friends who have done accupuncture when they were overdue and being threatened with a cesarean, and they all went into labor within 24 hours and had wonderful labors. The person they saw is actually a chiro too, and I think she may have done an adjustment too for one or all of them. Do you have someone like that?

Best wishes!!

If it's a choice between homeopathy and c/s, I would do the homeopathy, no question. I bet baby would agree.

DS2 has had a bad cough for over a month.  I have been trying to shake things up this past week, now that my brain is no longer in a fog.  I used cell salts and it seemed to progress it from a dry to a wet cough, bringing up stuff.  Which I thought was good.  I then went to Hephar Sulph, which is his go-to remedy (which I forgot about).  It has been working ok.  I might be forgetting to give it to him often enough.  Today, on his own he grabbed a remedy and ran.  I checked it out and it was calc sulph.  My question is:  what is the difference between the two?  I'm not seeing much.  Pendulum says yes to both.



We are upping our vit c and have done one castor oil pack.  Need to do more.
