Now the task of finding that 'constitutional remedy'...is this best left to a professional homeopath (we are in a rural area and I don't know of any nearby, plus it would take alot of persuading to get dh to consider having a professional consultation)
Are there any good books on choosing remedies for a number of health concerns: My dh has the following symptoms:
The main physical symptoms are:
Terrible burning indigestion after most meals but especially bread, oatmeal, grains in general...but seems to be worse with stress and anxiety. If he is stressed or anxious about something, he sometimes gets loose bowels.
Aches and pains in his joints, knee, shoulder, lower back (he has lead a very active life...black belt karate, mountain climber, weight training, and has sustained a few injuries in the past...these seem to be the worst.
Excessive tirednesss, epecially after eating...has to have a daily afternoon nap or he gets really lethargic and would have to be in bed by 9pm. Sometimes feels tired after waking. Has had this problem since childhood.
Headaches, dull throbbing maybe 3 times a week (he drinks coffee daily, and if he skips coffee, he will get a headache....)
The more psychological symptoms are:
Feelings of discontentment with life, sometimes suicidal thoughts when it gets really bad. He is in a limbo at the moment with the direction his life is going...and this seems to make symptoms worse.
He can get really critical and get angry when provoked.
I am researching homeopothy and in the baby stages, so if there are a few remedies that these symptoms might match, I would be greatful so I could research them more fully. Is more info required?
Thank you to all those who may read this!
