The remedies would act independently of your diet.
You're right, it was the sepia - jury is still out on whether the arnica will do the same. The potency is written on my bottles, which I don't have with me right now - I do know she was going "gentle" with me because of my pregnancy. I took my first dose of arnica last night, and am waiting to see if that aggravates it too. She advised me to cut down on the doses to 1X a week (from 2X a week for each). I'd like to do both the arnica and sepia in 1 day (one in the am, one in the pm) because it would limit my acne pain to just one outbreak a week. Am I right that there's no reason to not do this? I think I understood that they don't interact with each other, and she thought the arnica would help with the pain.
Thanks so much for all of the advice and support - I'm starting to feel more comfortable that I'm not regressing, which is how it was feeling. Homeopathy is such a mysterious thing to me, I've really just put myself in her hands.
