2nd attempt...............hot flashes Page 4 of 6
You can take Sulph. 200c one dose now. Take it one pill/drop early in the morning in empty stomach. Do not take anything in for 40 minutes immediately after this dose.
Do not repeat the dose without talking to me and reporting changes.
Observe changes over two weeks and report.
♥ maheeru 11 months agoI'm 2 days into the 2nd week after Sulphur 200.
The first day was wonderful. I went a whole nine hours with no discomfort at all. The second day started with a flash but then I had seven hours free before reverting to amore or less 2 hourly interval.
Day 3 was pretty much every 2 hours all day and all night. I also developed a severe headache in the afternoon which lasted right through until 10pm of the following day.
The following day again 2 hourly but in bed I developed severe itching which kept me awake all night. It went away the following morning.
Since then the flashes have remained stable until last night. It was like a 2 hour long flash. It was impossible to sleep and when it did eventually go away I was then freezing. I managed to get a couple of hours sleep and then it started all over again although the flash only lasted about an hour this time.
So far this morning I seem to be back to the 2 hourly schedule but feeling exhausted.
winnieandco 10 months agoYes winnieandco
So isn't there any positive on energy, mood, sleep or any symptoms?
How many days have passed since the dose?
♥ maheeru 10 months agoIt was improving but for the last 3 days the hot flashes have been especially bad at night, waking me up every hour or so and the heat has been intense. I haven't had any more headaches or itching but I really am not getting enough sleep.
Nothing I have ever tried seemed to hold and this time is just the same.
winnieandco 10 months agoWas the improvement only for one day or it continued for some days?
You said something about it's 2 hours all day and night initially. After that you mentioned flashes remained stable. So when flashes remained stable they were absent or were less or were not increasing?
Possibly 12 days have elapsed since the last dose right?
If you had noticed improvement on the major complaints and you felt improvement on energy/mood and these are receding now, then a dose can be repeated. If not then we might have to look elsewhere.

♥ maheeru 10 months agoThe improvement lasted a little short of 2 days. When I said that the flashes remained stable I meant that they were continuing at roughly every 2 hours.
Currently they are still every 2 hours in the daytime but have got much worse at night. For 3 nights I have had extreme discomfort and very little sleep. Despite this my mood is good. I am just frustrated that I have had this for such a long time.
winnieandco 10 months agoWith all three Lachesis, Ignatia, Sulph doses which was the one that helped most with your important complaints like sleeplessness and hot flashes?
You can take a dose of sulph. 200 in water. To prepare a solution, dissolve a pill/drop in 200 ml water. Shake the bottle just before the dose for four times. Take one drop from this solution as a dose. Keep the bottle.
See if this dose improves things.

♥ maheeru 10 months agoIt's such a long time since taking the Lachesis that I really don't remember if I was having trouble sleeping back then. The problems were quite new. I know I felt quite hopeful that the lachesis was working until the anxiety put a stop to it.
I'm a bit disappointed with the Sulphur, it does seem to help just not for long enough.
I just read through my original questionnaire to see if anything struck me as different now. My answers now would be just the same. I have noticed one slight change though, my stuffy nose is not as bad as it was.
winnieandco 10 months agook did you take another dose of sulph. in water? If yes was there any relief?
From another perspective i'm leaning towards sepia for your issues. How many doses did you take in 30c and what was the response?
♥ maheeru 10 months agoI took the sulphur in water 2 days ago and I can report that I have had some improvement. Only one flash yesterday and so far one today and much milder than usual. I also slept quite well last night. I am just hoping that this will continue.
Again it is a very long time since I took the sepia. I was taking 5 pillules at a time and I think I started out at one dose a day. I probably took 5 or six doses.
