Unlike the classical homeopaths, one thing I have observed in my experiments on Self is that When we take a constitutional remedy finder by this method or through a repertory, the indicated medicines from Arsenic Album to Antim Crudem as nerrated by you above along with the grid points, to my mind, indicate, such a percentage of each medicines is necessary for the body to achieve homeostasis. At least medicines upto Natrum Mur above would be necessary to bring about complete health. As you said, "udaya, the improvement is substantial but not complete". I feel this we need this change in approach in homeopathy. i.e If you are taking 16 doses of the first medicine, at least one dose of the 16th medicine should also go into you. This is just a thought.

Hi, here's the update since yesterday.

- I had to switch on the fan while sleeping. May be bacause the weather is a bit warm these days.
- But then again, felt a bit cold in the morning, with sneezing so had to switch off the fan.
- Running nose continues, and persists almost the whole day, with small intervals of relief. Have to carry a handkerchief all the time.
- No need to wear jacket in the office AC.
- Not taking any precautions in eating habits, as in, am having coffee, onion, tea, etc. since medication is on hold. I hope that's not a problem.

Thanks

Use single dose of Natrum Mur 200 for nasal discharges if it is irritatively high.

Take one dose of Arsenic Album 200 and one dose of Allium Cepa 30. Seems something you have taken has antidoted the functioning of the medicine. When it is normal continue with Arsenic Album 30. Report. Also buy one drahm bottle containing Histaminum 1M and use one single dose from it once and next day onwards start with Arsenic Album 30 three times a day for three days if the problem still persists.

Do I still need to take precautions in eating/drinking? I thought that since I had stopped taking the medicines, I need not anymore.
So, I've been taking tea, coffee, onion, etc without restrictions. Please let me know if these could affect.
One thing that I had different last night was mustard sauce.
Also, please tell me whether taking more pellets of ArsAlb30 would do the job of 200 potency? Otherwise, I'll go and get the 200 potency medicine.

Can I take Allium Cepia and Arsenic Album together?

Thanks

yes.no coffee and strong smelling pungent substances.
No it does not raise the potency if you add more pellets.
Take the medicines in gap of three hours.

Hi Udaya,

Greetings.

I am back with my problem again Sad
I could not really get persistent relief, so on the advice of a friend, I visited an ENT specialist to check for Nasal Septum Deviation. He confirmed the deviation and said that deviation along with the allergies could cause severe problems. He is suggesting surgery (a minor one) to fix the problem. I am definitely going to check with a couple of doctors before resorting to any surgery.

Just wanted to take your advice on the same. Do you think it can be cured by homeopathy, avoiding the surgery?

Thanks

There are very few medicines in homeopathy which arrests the abnormal growth of bones. Mostly Phosphourus regulate growth, Hekla Lava, Silicea, Calcarea, Aurum etc. does work at the bone level. Some people responds to the medicines some does not. For any kind of abnormal growth of bones, ligaments, tendons, it must be understood that there is fundamental reason, which branches out into various forms of manifested ailments. Addressing fundamental reason is what we attempt to do through homeopathy. Operation is like cutting the diseased branch which does not address the fundamental cause. It must be understood that the tendency for extra growth persists within the body though you might correct the the Septum by surgery. The chronic allergy is also a part of the same cause. I know a few who have done it and is devoid of any further complications or troubles. it is indeed a minor surgery. There are also people who remove the whole of them due to damages and is comfortable without it. No harm in surgery.

Thanks Udaya,

I have a doubt about by situation.

1. Am I having problems because of the combined effect of septum deviation and allergy?

2. Or the septum deviation triggers allergy?

If the case 1 is true, then I guess treatment of allergy by homeopathy should give me consistent relief.

However, if case 2 applies, then the root cause itself is the deviation of septum, and homeopathy wont be much help. That's what I think.

PersonalIy, I would consider surgery as the last option.

Thanks

Both Septum deviation and so called allergy are not diseases but can be called ailments. You are ailing because of that or you are feeling sick because of that. But its root cause is not on the nose, they are the end products. The visible signs. As far as the so called allergy is concerned the body is fightiing to expel the toxins accumulating in it and disturbing its normal functioning or which would become cause for other ailments, while septum deviation is a condition achieved by the body due to the imbalances and non assimilation or mechanical functional disorders inside the body due to far reaching causes. Using medicines for the nose is not going to correct it. Using medicines for stopping the sneezing is not going the so called allergy. If you use the allopathic medicines it is going to control the histamines which is responsible for defending the body against foreign invasions when body immune system goes low. We call that disease. In all these cases we are working against the cause and working against the body but not trying to solve the cause and helping the body improve. Surgery is always the last option. I have agreed that surgery could be opted because to find out the cause in individual cases is a long process or a lucky process where we hit the right medicine at the right time. If not the sufferings of the patient continues.

Try Silicea 30 three times a day for three days. And Hekla Lava 3X. Treatment for allergy is not going to give relief as allergy is only manifested level and there are many layers of malfunctions underlying them before we reach the cause. Mostly the medicines indicated for sneezing also covers many of the underlying symptoms and therefore after a few doses of one indicated medicines we reach the cause quickly from the remaining symptoms. or evolving symptoms. Evolving symptoms are the ones that are underlying when the surface symptoms have been neutralised. and when the underlying symptoms are getting treated, they come to surface and thus we know the cause from those vital symptoms. This is how a chronic ailment can be approached successfully through homeopathy.

I cannot say with certainty without seeing the person and other symptoms present in him which you may not be noticing. Neither I am a magician to sit here and predict you might have such and such symptoms, with accuracy unless there are clear indications for such predictions or I am adept in treating such a particular condition. Suggesting through forum has huge( huge limitations.

Thanks for the valuable information Udaya.

As I understand, the best way is to get proper treatment from a homeopathic doctor, as he'd be able to see the symptoms more clearly and suggest medicines with more clarity. Do you suggest any particular doctor here in Bangalore, India?

Dear Sagr,
Neither I have an address in India nor I have many friends out there. Yourself living in Bangalore must know far better than me. My stay in India was only two or three years in last 30 years. I can only google to tell you about some homeo doctors which you yourself can do better. with regards.

Hi Udaya,
I went to a doctor yesterday, but was disappointed to hear her views. She said that if DNS is there, medicines won't work. Medicines can only be taken for temporary relief. She said others might tell you to take keep on taking medicines for the sake of their fee, but its not going to help.

I am going to consult some other doctor now.

Sagr,

It is not true. Deviated septum doesn't mean, it is completely blocking one of airways of one of the nostrils. It blocks only partially, even when there is a mild inflammation that happens for many reasons and major one being collection of foreign particles like dust, pollen, excess moisture etc.... . Homeopathic remedies would do the following:
1. It would try to make the body learn to reallocate some of its available resources. In this case, if there is an excess bone growth, over a period of many days, or months, this excess will be chelated and get redistributed in our body's bone structure.
2. Correct the deviation by making the airways breath in a particular way by changing some of its structure in the affected region, by making us use corrected postures and gestures during sleep and at othertimes at a subconscious level, which we may or may not notice.

Other mechanisms required:

a.Through certain physical excercises at a conscious level.
b. Training through appropriate breathing excercises.
c. Jala neti ( using neti-pot, Saline water is a very potent antibiotic and using a process called reverse osmosis it can remove regular accumulations and chelate any excess) can keep the airways clean and healthy there by promoting corrections.

Infact, 10 to 20% of the population have deviated septum, and I am sure, and majority of them manage without surgery quite well.

Please don't let it bother you beyond what it should.

Best wishes
Garcot

Thanks for your input Garcot. I think an x-ray image would throw more light on the problem. Will get the x-ray tomorrow.

As you said, 10 to 20% of the population have deviated septum. But I guess in my case the combination of deviated septum and allergies is making the problem very serious. At times, I even consider moving out of Bangalore, as the problem is more severe here only.

In any case, I will continue to find a doctor who can suggest systematic way of dealing with the problem.

Use Allium Cepa 30 three times a day for one day in the meanwhile. Thereafter use Arsenic Album 30 three times a day for three days. And Gelsemium 30 three doses for one day. Your sneezing should stop first. If you can do Sutra Neti it will correct it a lot if there is any obstruction protruding within as growth pushing the septum to curve. If you have not taken Silicea or Hekla Lava you may try those. Depending on how you respond, the cure is possible. There is nothing that cannot be cured under the sun. The only thing is one should know how to cure and what to use and how to use.
