    I've found places I can buy Dolisos nosodes! I also looked into the Reckeweg remedies, but they don't cover my symptom picture.

    Some people dissolve a remedy in water, succuss it, then take 1tsp doses of the liquid, instead of using pills for each dose. I don't know if this works for chronic conditions, or only for acute. It saves a lot of money when I'm treating a flu.

    Food allergies are the worst! I hope you find something that helps.

    I have used homeopathy with success for certain things. It was homoepathy which got rid of my constant thirst which then ended up making me be peeing 5-6 times a night. (one of my CFS/ME symptoms)

    With homoepathy having a good match to the remedy is very important. (Here in Australia.. homoepaths train for 4 years full time to get certified).

    Ive used homoepathy on young child with success (it fixed an issue which 15-17 surgeries had been unable to solve, doctors had booked my child in for even more surgery but thanks to homeopathy more wasnt needed. We went throu many years of surgery hell.. when just a week of homopathy ended up fixing the issue).

    It also stopped our pet rabbit from having to be put down using it (rabbit had a huge hole in his side with an all over body infection which was under his whole skin) Another rabbit of ours it saved a leg which one could of sworn was completely dead.. hard and black and swivelled after a piece of string had wrapped itself around it for a few days cutting off blood supply), I still dont know how on earth that leg was made well by it.

    Homoepathy can truely work miracles if the right remedy is used (Its important to find out the right remedy for the "individual" which is only something an experienced homoepath can tell you. What is used for one person who has a certain illness, may not necessarily be used for another person who has the same illness. Homeopathy isnt like pharmacutical drugs where a certain one can usually be successfuly used for a certain thing, this makes studies into homeopathy hard to do unless the remedies are being choosen for each individual person by a homeopath).

    I have had a very unfortunate experience with Homeopathy. Under the care of a homeopathic physician I took a remedy (staphysagria) and it made me react to the antidepressant I was taking. Or at least, it caused a reaction that mimiced serotonin syndrome, so my regular doctor told me to go off Celexa cold turkey. Well i tried to fix all my symptoms left over with more homeopathy (saw her once a week and phoned once a week, changing remedies rapidly) until I ran out of money and couldn't buy anymore or see her. Then I completely fell apart.
    Well I was still sick, so I decided to go back on my antidepressant, and low and behold, I am now allergic to them. I tried three different ones and had horrible reactions. I ended up in the emergency room at one point.
    I now have a constant feeling of dread that doesn't go away, and have to take an antipsychotic medication to sleep, and benzos just to get through the day. I wake up with panic attacks and my sensitivity to stimuli is off the chart. Sounds cause panic, everything causes a mood swing. Stress makes the back of my head literally burn and i have pressure in my head. The remedy made me so sick, and I still have not recovered. I became very suicidal at one point. I am moving out of my place and into my parents next semester because I can't be alone anymore, it's a nightmare!
    I finally called the homeopath today and am going to ask him to anecdote the remedy. I really can't live like this anymore, it's so painful. I can't believe this happened. And I hope there's still hope for me to have a normal life, and for my brain chemistry to rebalance. I now have problems I've never had to deal with before. :( So sad, because homeopathy helped a few things.

    This kind of happened to me too but with drugs. I got a new one added that tipped my system over. I went off all of them and remained so ill, exactly like you. I dont think it was the remedy at all causing it, but your sensitive body reacted to the 2 of them together. I now cant take anything but homeopaths now.. What I had to do was calm my body down using the Gupta Amygdala retraining programme. The brain/immune system was reacting to everything as dangerous, vitamins, simple stuff like hand wash soap etc.

    I am using TRE (traumaprevention.com) and Gupta to bring me out of it and I am now starting to live again, but it has taken time. Start with a meditation a good one is Yoga Nidra and surround yourself with nurturing caring people, doses of self love.

    That is the last thing in the whole world I want to hear. (I know you're just trying to help). But I am now so depressed I can't stand it. I need this to get fixed so badly. I am losing my mind. I can't concentrate or enjoy anything. I'm one sick puppy. I am trying to put many heads together to fix this. I'm going to talk to a few more homeopaths and see if we can anecdote the Staphysagria. I am praying that will be a solution. I can't go on like this, I'm really losing steam. I've taken antidepressants for 11 years, and being off them feels like pure torture. And on top of that (I've gone off them before and didn't feel this bad) I have added symptoms of constant dread, burning, and cycling panic. I have panic attacks in my sleep. It just isn't fair. I can't live like this, I need help. I need help.

    Dear PrettyLady,

    I'm sorry to hear you're going through so much anguish. Since you seem to be ultra sensitive to your environment, and energetic (vibrational) frequencies, perhaps there's a way you can use this to your advantage. Before I expound, I'll just say that I'm also quite sensitive. On one occasion, I felt nauseous just from being in the same room where some chemotherapy pills left on a counter (by a visiting friend who was taking this for her cancer).

    One thing that has helped me counter some of the effects of my own sensitiivity is by using something called Biocircuits. What was most helpful for me was using what is called a "substance" biocircuit, where you can introduce various vibrations into your energy field in a very therapeutic way. An infinite variety of different substances can be used, such as velarian, or any other calming herb. Here's a couple of links in case you would be interested.

    Introduction to Biocircuits

    History of Biocircuits

    I might also mention that clicking on the link in my signature (below) will take you to a very short video, which describes a healing and calming (spiritual) technique that I find works well for me. Perhaps it will be helpful for you as well. -- I really empathize with your predicament. It's one I'm all too familiar with. Please hang in there. I do believe if you're persistent, there are things you can discover that will work well for you.

    Best Regards, Wayne

    Depending on how deep the remedy has gone in your system, you can usually antidote a homeopathic remedy with camphor, coffee, peppermint, etc. Don't eat the camphor, but expose yourself to it.

    You shouldn't have to pay her to antidote it!

    A good strong peppermint like Altoids will sometimes antidote a remedy. I inadvertently did this to a remedy that was working for me.

    I'm going to raise the post from the grave, hopefully getting an answer or two.

    There seems to be lots of experiences with homeopathy here, but I haven't read through the entire thread yet.
    The general conclusion I have seen from people thus far is that it makes them feel worse, and I have had similar experiences as well.

    I am starting to explore a new way to dose the remedies, done by few homeopaths in the USA. It is called LM potencies, and they are considered MUCH more gentle and deep acting. If anything was to work for people who have low vitality like us, it would have to be the LM scale.

    Has anyone experienced with this LM scale?

    After reading through the last half of the thread I immediately regret it LOL.

    So much anger. I can understand the anger, though. We are all sick and we are very tired of BEING sick.
    We are angry because so many people claim to be able to heal us but cannot.
    We are angry because we have let ourselves trust some of these people, just to be let down and feel like a fool.
    So we become cynics.
    It is okay to be a cynic, but you must understand that everything in this universe cannot be explained. Lot's of the information we have out there can be wrong, we must know this. So do not let a few studies claiming to knock down homeopathy get in your way of trying it. It is cheap, so become your own experiment and go do some research and give it a try. I thought it was lunacy only a few months ago, but I was blown away to actually see SOMETHING happening.

    I am sure many scientists of their time had "proof" that the world was flat.

    It does not really matter how it works. The most important point is that we found a beneficial treatment.

    I never read wonderful stories related to CFS with homeopathy. Although I know some people that had success with it for "minor" diseases. But once one is very sick, I think homeopathy is not a treatment to consider.

    I have this cynic (with anxiety, depression, irritability, all related) feeling, and I'm so tired to have it. I'm not like that, but I can't help it.

    I used homeopathy extensively for a long time and benefited from it for a long time. This was when I had access to a "homeopathic hospital". I live abroad most of the time now and it is difficult to be referred anyway, huge waiting list, NHS changed the rules and the laws, they want to close it or change it or even maybe privatize it etc.

    But when I was able to see my specialist (she is a conventional medical dr as well as specialized on ME by the way) I did not experience the horrible ME symptoms as bad.

    Surprised that I didn't notice the thread before and I haven't read the whole thread, its very long.

    I still want to make few comments, though probably what I'll say mentioned in the thread previous posts. Apologies if I'm repeating any points already mentioned.

    Homeopathy does not heal or cure the disease, it eradicates or lessens the symptoms.

    Feeling worse after taking a homeopathic remedy is an indication of that the remedy is working. Or feeling so well as feeling totally cured is also an indication that it is working too.

    In my experience (I have used homeopathy for at least 10 years) the latter always works better.

    I used wide range of remedies, I can't even remember many of them. But the ones worked great on me were crow, ozone, sepia, absynth, arsenic.
