It's okay. I just needed to vent. Honestly, I am thinking I might cancel our next appointment.

I keep thinking, hey, maybe things would be worse without it but I'm not sure. I have been cheating a ton with my diet because I'm a terrible mother and gluton and nights still seem to be hit or miss so I have no idea if they'd all be horrible without the remedy or not. I have two more remedies to try but I need to call the guy to ask which one I should try next. I think I am expecting too much - for me to eat anything without reaction and for DD to sleep half way decently. Like at least one 4-6 hour hunk each night. Little energetic tablets aren't going to fix our problems I don't think. I hope this vacation does me good....It's just me, DD and my mom. So my mom's vacation is to spend all her time with DD and give me a break. Yeah!

That does sound like a nice break. I am totally jealous.

And now I'm confused. How many remedies did he give you??? And why so many?

Well, we started with nux vomica 200c. Didn't notice much so we tried calc carb 30c for 3 doses a few weeks later. Had a great night the first night she got that but didn't see much else happening. So....he sent me another dose of calc carb, only 200c one dose to try. That's the most recent thing she has taken. When he sent that dose he also sent two other remedies to hold onto just so I'd have them in case he wanted me to try them with her. I need to call him and check in. I have no idea if he'll want me to try one of them or just hang tight for a while. Dunno...

Nalo, do you have mercury fillings in your teeth? I remember FF/PB/SB saying that mercury can shorten the duration of effectiveness of homeopathy. (or something like that)

I can't remember the exact ratio, but remember that the general rule of homeopathy is that it will take about 1/8th the time to heal as the dis-ease has been in place... I don't know if you would count womb time for an infant or not for miasmic dis-eases.

I was wondering, I know that emotions are the first thing to "shift" with homeopathy but... After talking on the Allergies chat thread, I realized that my moods seem to be going in a cycle... One day sad, 2 days mad, 2 days okay, 2 days wonderful (approximation, of course... I'm not certain that it's *exactly* 2 days for each and it could be 2 days sad too.. but general gist). Before I took my remedy, I was generally just mad all the time, so it *is* an improvement, just wondering if it's a common phase shift, so to speak.

changingseasons - My homeopath has given me the same size/amt. in a packet for both 200c and 1M, followed by a daily dry dose of 20x (which I read here and elsewhere is not ordinary or preferable). I haven't asked him about it further because he is actually way way under charging me for my appt.s and I am totally trusting his expertise.

nalo - is it just your DD who is getting homeopathy? DS is not getting any directly, just through me!, and I've seen a big change in his digestion. If I hadn't, I might be questioning the effectiveness of the remedy too because I am still up and down and all around.

Jacqueline - I have not been paying as close attention, but I am definitely having similar reactions. First irritated, then sad, then woozy/out-of-body-ish, then more easy-going.... something like that. And a whole lot more organized and able to be okay with things NOT being organized too.

So I think I'm on an upswing. At least, I'm not as irritable and grumpy as last weekend! I've been reading 'Impossible Cure: The Promise of Homeopathy' by Amy Lansky, and it's been pretty interesting. Her son's autism was cured with homeopathy and she subsequently became a homeopath (and author!).

Well I'm a little discouraged. It's been a week since I emailed the homeopath about the remedy making Adam sleep terribly & she still hasn't gotten back to me. What's up with that? I have no idea if I should continue with the one I have or not. Sheesh. Not feeling the love.

to answer questions...

no, I do not have any silver fillings left - they have all been replaced over time and they had all been replaced long before I conceived.

DD is getting the remedy directly and i am not working with the homeopath for myself.

NEW QUESTION...

just posted a new thread in h and h but we are on vacation and DD has a fever with shivering. it just came on during this sleep so we'll see how she is in the morning but any advice? we have oscillo and the Hyland's kit with us, along with echinacea.

Oh man.. that's not cool at all. I would be seriously annoyed. Can you call her?

kortner- yeah, my homeopath charges WAY less than anyone in the area, and hasn't charged me any extra for talking about DD and getting her a remedy too, so I'm sticking with him for now.

Wow- I took that new higher dose of my remedy and omg the shtf last night. DP and I got in a little argument, and I just LOST IT. Like really bad. It was not a good day. Feeling much better today though. My eczema, which had really flared up, is now fading really quickly.

DD's diaper rash is almost gone again too! And she seems to be getting through her last reaction pretty quickly. Of course I'm using clay in her baths and just started giving her vitamin C directly, so I'm sure those are helping too. But the remedies are doing *something*...

I try to plan to take my remedy when dh is out of town or out for the evening, so we have a day of space. For his own protection.

I don't know why, but I have this vision of you and your DH in my head and you're really petite (in my head) and your DH's a rather large Native-y looking guy.... The idea of you losing it on him, therefor, gives me a really funny mental image.

That's hilarious. We are almost exactly the same size (even down to our shoes.) And I'm not so petite...

I'm so sorry it's been so frustrating!

You know, a few times I've had things like that, and sometimes, it's that the person who was supposed to get back to me honestly didn't see my email or get my voice mail. Maybe it's that simple? Call, leave a message, mention that you emailed and you haven't heard back.

We ran into a friend at the grocery store today. She gave me the number for a classical homeopath in the city. I'd kind of like to call her but... my remedy from my ND seems to be doing good things (imo) so I'm just going to stick with him for now. He's been a good doctor.

The day I emailed she responded that she was going to look at his case again. Haven't heard from her since. A week ago. Quite annoying.

So how long was the process for your husband - for him to get to the point of really feeling healed? Just curious - I love to hear success stories.

Pat, I forgot to say Thanks! on asking your CH about Karl Robinson. It gave me some reassurance, I want to get through this week (house we're selling is due to close Wednesday, minor snag but I think we will still close on-time) and then I can think a bit more about the future. But I think I'll call and see what his prices are (I'm a bit concerned about this, but it really seems like the right time to do this--I think it's possible my husband finally had a bad reaction after eating gluten, it's been 20 mos gfcf and he didn't feel better at all, or feel bad if he cheated and had gluten, til I think possibly this weekend, which seems like a good sign to me . So anyway, point was, Thanks!

I missed this yesterday. He has a GREAT reputation. If I had access to him I wouldn't hesitate....not for a second. In fact he's up there on my list in terms of who I want to study with. Keep us updated!!!! I'm jealous.

So is that progress?

The homeopath finally got back to me. We are gong to try Adam on a lower dose of the remedy more frequently.
