i have a bit going on now healing wise in my family. Mostly good(as in moving in a positive direction)- this would be dd1 and dh. Some confusing. (this would be related to me specifically). i dont know that i'll be consulting the new homeopath extensively.
I wish i had time or energy to post... maybe i will anyway.
in breif. I had bad mastitis 2 novembers ago, it started with a stiff neck and many other things indicating phytolacca including my instinct. i took anti biotics at the time and have since had a lump in a duct - abcess that wont reabsorb. Have seen my old homeopath she said sulphur and that it was my constituional - no affect. anyway, my periods came back recently and the lump got inflamed (phytolacca) - the inflamation has returned every time i have had stress physical or emotional since the actual infection, with ear ringing/ pain and back pain. this time it occured with a sinus infection (facial pain is a phytolacca symp) I tried to get in touch with the person firefairy rec'd but it was taking too long fo rher to respond to my email so i had dh pick up phytolacca b/c he was in a city with a homeopathic pharmacy (3 months ish ago) anyway i took 200 3X doesnt matter why it was working and i didnt need to keep taking it but did not understand principles as well then as i do now. it ran too stron and ws very intense. i thinki antidoted it with a lot of cal-mag vitamins, b/c then the pos effects went away. so i waited a few days and took 30 c 2 X a day for like 1 1/2 weeks. but i would feel it wearing off come evening when i
d need to take it again. then it stuck better eventually and i stoppd taking it.
Anyway, this was the first thing i have tried that made the lump really go away ( ithought).
then i got this bad cough 1 1/2 months ago and went to the new homeopath my baby also had a bad cough and he perscribed drosera for me which did not help and gave me headaches so i stopped taking it, then he suggested something else maybe phos. or perhaps he rec'd that for my baby. anyway none of the remedies helped so he said sometimes you just have to let your body do the work. We went away for 1 1/2 weeks for passover to my MIL and the cough did not get better. Gamne home went to an MD- he said pneumonia - i did not do the xray or take anti-biotics just garlic for a few days and it was all gone. anyway, th lump never went away agin, then i got a sinus infection and my breast was hurting so i went to see the new homeopath agian. told him how i thought i needed phytolacca and why and how it also treats basically everything i have ever had my whole life. (Would that make it my constitutional) my feeling was that i needed to take it repeatedly at a higher dose and that in Nash's materia medica he writes that he had great success administering phyto for lumps that have been there a while at CM once month. I diod not want to make that kind of perscription myself. So anyway he said silica which i see why but it also has alot of things that DO NOT apply to me but he did not ask me to take alot so i tried it 2 doses of 30 c some weird things happened but it did not treat my breast or my sinuses so after a week he said take one more dose, i debated with myself i read i decided to do it, i was so sick for 2 days and one day was my dh
s bday and thenext he was away and i was home alone with my girls. turns out he thought my remedy might have been a dud and that why he asked me to dose again, i cant afford to get sick like that to see if the remedy is a dud! so still cant breath so goos and am really pissed to be breathing through my mouth! annd breast is not great but not inflamed, just painful when nursing sometimes.
Anyway so i told him i intend to take phytolacca and can he recomend a dose. he sid 30 c once a week for a month and if it doesn t work dont take more.
i dontthin that is going to be enough i mean i have had this long time, if it was going to go away easily it would have. but i dont want to take CM! that sounds very intense and i am very sensitive. but i dont know what to do.
also what do you guys thing abt using a crystal to chose remedies (like to confirm your thoughts or discount them?)
and what do you know abt if British Institute is a good prorgam?
i was feeling so disallusioned with energy medicing b/c of bad experiences but i think i am just had enough with doctors.
eta- i hope that was clear, i am not the queen of long posts that clearly explain complicated things going on in my life. i usually just respond to others. this thread has really made me try.
