Any suggestions for a sinus infection?  :(  I've been fighting something off and on for a couple weeks, but tonight it really hit me hard.  I have a fever, major snot in the back of my sinuses/throat (but my nose is clear), tons of drainage with a metallic taste, my throat is raw and tight when I open my mouth wide, sneezing, and my upper neck/behind my ears is sore (like muscle ache kind of sore)....  eta: no appetite, cold feels good on my throat (I just ate some ice cream.  I know, I know... not the best choice probably), really thirsty all day.  I think that's it.  :P  Going to bed now...  Nope- I just realized that my neck, all the way around (but especially sides and back), is sore to the touch.

 

I had 2 sinus infections when I was pregnant with DD, and took abx both times.  I haven't had any abx since her birth, and I am resolved to make it through this pregnancy without any!!!  But man, sinus infections can really knock me on my butt.

I need to seriously read through this thread and take some notes! LOL

post #725 of 864

OT, but since we were talking about it here... what are the chances of having a weird reaction to slippery elm powder?  I gave DD some for the first time today before lunch, and pretty soon she was naked and bouncing off the walls.  :scratch  Also- is before meals a good idea, or does it make any difference when you take it?

Where did I read about the new lyme test that tests for current and past exposure?  The one Panser mentioned to me.

 

I'm going to my MD today and want to talk to him about it.

I don't know, but let us know if you find it!! I'd love to get tested sometime too...

I see that nobody responded.  I'd be cautious about using it too often - you don't want to prove the remedy.  

 

But, there's always another approach... for flu, we use elderberry syrup and we take high vit A/D cod liver oil prophylactically (indeed, we just take CLO all year).

 

Paul Bergner just wrote in an herbal mailing list that if everyone were taking 4000-10000IU of vit D per day through the winter especially, we'd see a huge change in oncological procedures, many fewer hospitalizations, and fewer illness overall.  He remarked that an MD colleague started doing vit D testing on ALL 300 of her patients, and only 2 were at "lab test" normal.  By supplementing them at 4000IU, over the course of a year, she was able to reduce hospitalizations by 75%.

 

However, if you are really set on homeopathy, to avoid doing a proving, why not instead make sure you've got a broad enough selection of remedies at home already and use them if you come down with something?  If you've got Baptisia, Gelsemium, Aconite, Belladonna, perhaps Ferr phos, you'd probably be well equipped for the onset, in addition to your regular remedies you might use.

yes, to this.  all of it.  I don't really worry about the proving as I've not seen it happen dosing in this way, but unless there's an actual infection in the house or someplace where you are exposed for certain I just don't tend to do the prophylaxis thing.  I did it for my kids when dh and I had pertussis, but there was no escaping us for them!  I've not even really done it for the flu-I just treat as symptoms arise and have had great luck with that.

 

And although it's a homeopathy thread, Hahnemann was very clear that homeopathy was most effective when the person had a solid nutritional base.  From my perspective most are deficient in vitamin D so I don't see it as megadosing, but more as replenishing stores so that we are where we should be.

Good! It took a while, but it's pretty much gone now. Now I'm just back to the regular pregnancy stuffiness. smile.gif But I'm thrilled that I made it through a sinus infection with NO DRUGS!! (This is a first for me. redface.gif)

that is fantastic!!!

So DS is taking a remedy but he chews the pills.  Do you think chewing the pills is a problem?  I only ask because its been two weeks and we've had no improvement, if anything its a little worse.  

 

Does chewing make a difference?

post #735 of 864

Chlobo - my boys chomp on their poppyseed size pills.  i can't imagine it being a difference. 

post #736 of 864

or dissolve it in water...

Hi everyone!

I've subscribed to this thread and would like to join it.

I've been successfully using homeopathy for few years, lately really getting into it.

For the past few days I've been giving DS Cina and Santoninum for the worms. I've also eliminated gluten, dairy, eggs and fruit from his diet.

Yesterday DS started getting cranky and very irritable and this morning I've noticed lots of tiny white things in his poop, I have no way of knowing for sure without the lab test but IMO they look like pinworms. I'm so relieved to see worms finally coming out of his little body.

 

Elizabeth, I'll keep posting here to keep you informed, thanks again for your help smile.gif

Is oscillo ever used for anything other than viruses? 



 



Baby girl has been reacting to my food reactions (appears that avocados are not good for me right now), but she hadn't been improving.  I got sick yesterday with what my mom had swollen throat/aches.  I was able to work through it with oscillo and ferr phos and am feeling much better.  Baby girl didn't feel well last night and is burning through oscillo.  She is napping now on me.



 



Ugh.  DS2 just broke my brand new 1 day old pendulum while I wrote the above.  heartbroken.



Eta: she is def. Sick. I can see it in her eyes. Also my breasts are really full and sore. I don't think she is draining them well. My throat has been sore and swollen. Merc V. Tested yes. She in unusually gassy - is that part of the Merc V picture? Or maybe that's a food reaction.
