Homeopathy and Health Forum
InsomniaHas anyone tried this remedy:
During premenopause and menopause I have been able to fall asleep, and if I do, I wake 1-3 times during the night. My blood pressure is high in the afternoons and evenings. I had a saliva test done for cortisol levels and it's very low in the morning and very high at night. As you know the hypothalamus excretes the hormone that triggers the release of cortisol by the adrenals.

This thread continues beneath the following ad.Hi Angelfatima,
For the homeopathic remedy you really have to have someone take
your entire case to prescribe on your totality of symptoms. This is a
chronic issue and trying to diagnose yourself and treat yourself usually
won't work- which is why homeopaths go to other homeopaths for Chronic
You could try a herbal formula to see if that helps at all.
Valerian root, skullcap, passionflower and hops in equal parts- take 30 drops of tincture in
warm water a half hour before bed and or every two hours as needed. I am
almost sure Whole Foods has some herbal tinctures with this in it.

Thank you but I have tried 3 homeopaths, one who was from this site, and nothing that they recommended worked. What I need is a referral for a homeopath that only specializes in this. Do you know of anyone?
I have tried those tinctures, all the passion flowers and nothing worked.
angelfatima on 2014-06-18I think it would be good for you to try Mary Aspinwall, homeopath
from the UK, in Santa Barbara, she will do your case by phone- she has decades of
experience, and I am sure she has done cases of this.
Just to mention some of the main remedies for insomnia are:Kali Phos, senecia jacobea, Ambra, Hyosycamus, Sulphur, Belladonna, Chamomilla, Ars Alb, Ignatia, Mag Carb, Cocculus, Aconite, Arnica, Ferrum phos, Gelsemium, Muric Acid-
so you can see you need someone experienced and I would want to work with
a female on this.

simone717 on 2014-06-18No-one will be able to give you any advice about that product here. That isn't homoeopathy. We have thousands of remedies for sleeplessness - the one you have linked to is just one of them. The chance of it working without the rest of the case suiting it is pretty low, and there could be side effects from using the wrong remedy.
Homoeopathy has nothing to do with how the medicine is made, but everything to do with how it is prescribed. That remedy is only homoeopathic if given for homoeopathic reasons, otherwise it is just a potentized medicine. It can be used like allopathic (orthodox) medicine in the way you are suggesting, but who knows what it might do then.
I looked over the case that was done on this site - you were only given one remedy, which had a partial effect and then ceased to work. I am not sure what other kinds of treatment you have received, but a homoeopath may need to prescribe several times before the right medicine is found. There are actually over 10,000 different medicines now - it can be a difficult job find the exact one you need.
Evocationer on 2014-06-19Has anyone tried remedies derived from animal organs. This one is for insomnia and it's from the Hypothalamus of an ox: http://www.choosenaturalhealth.net/product/HYPOTH
angelfatima on 2014-06-25Why are you continuing to ask that question? Didn't I just answer it in my previous post? Our medicines do not work that way, and you run serious risks taking them like they are orthodox medicine or herbs.
Despite your previous lack of success, you will not get better results in trying to apply the medicines this way. A good homoeopath will find a single remedy based on the whole of your case and aimed at your unique version of Insomnia, which will cure it. None of our medicines will result in cure any other way.
