Homeopathy does not work anything like allopathic or
herbal medicine. It works on the principle ' like cures Like'
There is a materia medica at the top of the forum where
the alphabet is listed-that includes thousands of remedies. You will see one remedy covers a huge amount
of things. You don't have to have all the symptoms of
The remedy is to be a 'similar' match to your totality
of symptoms - mental physical, emotional, what makes
you better and worse, etc. When you get a close match
your body will not allow your 'disease' and the remedy.
It reacts by raising your life force to clear everything that
is not right. The clearing usually follows a path- called
Herings Law of Cure ( you can google that) Your life force
is what is doing the work, the remedy is a catalyst.

simone717 on 2014-09-29This thread continues beneath the following ad.MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL DESCRIPTION
(Please spend the most time on this section and give DETAILED answers - the homoeopathic remedy is very often decided on the basis of the mental and emotional state of the patient !)
1. What are the issues in your life that bother you the most. Not physical issues but mental or emotional ones. List each one separately and describe why each one bothers you so much.
2. What emotions are the most troublesome for you? What situations provoke these emotions. How do these emotions make you act? Do you feel any ill effects from expressing or not expressing these emotions.
3. What incidents in your life have had a deep impact on you? Describe each incident in detail and how they made you feel? What did you do in those situations? What effect have they had on your life?
4. What are you afraid of? Especially important are phobias, but it might be objects, situations or events that just produce a high level of anxiety. How do you manage your fears? How do you react when confronted with these fears? What would be the worst situation for you to be put in that would provoke these fears? You may need to talk about each fear/anxiety separately.
5. What hobbies do you have? Why do you like each of these activities?
6. Do you have any persistent thoughts, ideas or beliefs that are difficult to stop or cope with? What are they?
7. Do you have any unusual gestures or movements of the body? Do you feel any unusual sensation or pain throughout your body? What exactly does it feel like is happening in your body?
8. When you experience your fears, persistent thoughts, or difficult emotions, what kind of sensation or reactions do you get in your body?
9. When did you feel at your best in your life? What was that like for you? If you imagine the complete opposite of this feeling or moment, what would that be like?
10. Do you feel like you are stuck in a pattern of behavior, especially when trying to deal with your problems? What is this pattern? THIS IS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION PLEASE CONSIDER CAREFULLY AND GIVE DETAILS.
11. What difficulties or problems do you have in relationships? Talk about your family, your romantic relationships, your spouse or partner, your friends, and your work colleagues. You may need to talk about all of these separately.
12. List 5 positive things about yourself. Are there any situations where this positive attribute becomes negative (is a problem)?
13. List 5 negative things about yourself. Are there any situations where this negative attribute becomes positive (is useful)?
14. Do you have any reoccurring dreams? Describe them in detail, including any feelings that come while dreaming. Dreams are very important in unlocking the deepest truth of a patient’s case, but it is not enough to simply describe them in a sentence. Give as much information as you feel comfortable doing.
15. Did you have any reoccurring dreams as a child, or earlier in your life? Describe those in detail including any feelings that came with them.
16. What were you like as a child, your character, your personality, your fears, your dreams, your problems?
17. What kind of environment did you grow up in? What problems where there at home, with your family, with your parents, with your siblings, with school?

HOW TO DESCRIBE YOUR COMPLAINTS (Physical Components)
In homoeopathy, prescription is based on precise details of various symptoms from which you suffer. To tell or write to a homoeopathic physician 'I have a headache ', ' an eruption ' or “a cough” would not be enough. If you inform him 'I have headache with sharp shooting pains in the left side of the head and temple, these pains always come on when the slightest cold air strikes the head. I feel better by pressing the head very hard.” Then only you have given all the information required for making a good homoeopathic prescription. The success of the prescription depends; largely on how detailed your description of the symptoms is.
We require the following details about your symptoms.
LOCATION: Please give the exact location of sensation, pain or other symptom. Also describe where the pain or sensation or symptom spreads.
SENSATION: Express the type of sensation or the pain or other symptom that you get in your own words however simple or funny it may seem. You may have a sensation that a mouse is crawling or the heart was grasped by an iron hand or you may have a pain that is cutting, burning jerking, pressing. Express the sensation or pain as it feels to you. Try to explain the whole sensation in the exact way it is happening and not just the word. We need to understand the whole process of the sensation as it is happening to you.
WHAT MAKES YOU WORSE OR BETTER:
Many factors are likely to influence your complaint. Some factors may intensify it and some factors may relieve the trouble. A detailed list of the factors is given at the end. Please refer it while describing each of your troubles and indicate which factors make the complaint better or worse.
DISCHARGES: You may have a discharge from nose, ears, mouth, eyes, ulcers, fistula, eruptions on skin, private parts, etc. Please describe your discharge in detail including colour, consistency, appearance, odour etc.
1] Your Complaint:
(Use your own words as far as possible, but if you have recognized or diagnosed the condition, give this information also.) By answering as many of these questions as fully as possible, you are helping me to understand what your body and unconscious mind is conveying. This can help me find a remedy for you.)
• What is the name of your complaint?
• When did the complaint begin?
• Where is it located?
• What sort of sensations (or emotions) do you associate with it? Sensation may or may not be painful
• Does anything make it better or worse?
• How does it bother you? How does it affect your day-to-day life?
• How does it feel like to have this/these problem/s? What are your feelings about being a person with this kind of complaint
• Did any event happen which caused the complaint? Describe the emotion associated with it.
• What are the other symptoms started with it, esp. mental and physical symptoms, which are not directly related to the main complaint.
• What are your reactions to it? How do you manage it?
When does it tend to occur?(time/day/other event)
PLEASE ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS FOR EACH SYMPTOM/COMPLAINT SEPARATELY. DO NOT INCLUDE ALL OF YOUR COMPLAINTS TOGETHER IN EACH QUESTION eg. all questions answered for Leg Pain, then same questions answered for Migraines, then same questions answered for Panic attacks etc.

Dr. Nail Nathan
By Neil Nathan MD
UPDATE May 16, 2015
I have scheduled Dr. Larry Klapow to be on my radio program for the upcoming July 24th show (changed from June 26), and we will be discussing our most recent findings during that program, as well as giving an overview of what we know.
So, for those who have been patiently (pun, intended) following our work on the Vk worm, we wanted you to know that we continue to pursue research on its diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Klapow has recently discussed some new treatments which we believe will significantly improve our ability to treat the Vk worm and we are happy to share that information on my radio program which will air 2-3pm PST on Friday, June 26th. The info to hear the show live will be up on the blog that week.
All of our shows are archived, so if you cannot catch the program live (you can ask questions during the show) it will be available afterwards from Voice America, The Cutting Edge of Health and Wellness Today.
July 15, 2012
Dr. Lawrence Klapow discovered a “new” roundworm, or nematode, approximately 15 years ago. As with many ground-breaking discoveries, the scientific community has been slow to accept or embrace his findings, despite the fact that he was able to complete a double-blinded study in which patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome were found to harbor this nematode in a surprisingly high percentage of cases. To be more specific, of 40 patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Varestrongylus klapowii (which we will now refer to as Vk) was found in over 60% of them, while not found in any of 20 controls.
This alone should stimulate researchers to delve into this area with great excitement. Unfortunately, this has not yet occurred.
While describing his findings to us at a GMA staff meeting several months ago, Dr. Klapow reminded us that the Vk worm is similar to several other nematodes that are capable of making an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase. Dr. Gordon and I looked over at each other at that moment, simultaneously struck by the possibility that this would explain one of the unusual phenomena faced by patients with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)—–namely, the rapidity with which those patients react to chemicals or scents that set off their symptoms.
Let me explain. When a patient with MCS is exposed to an offending chemical, or scent, they will usually react almost instantly. This means that within seconds of exposure, they will experience extreme fatigue, cognitive impairment, or neurological events (spasms, tics, dystonias, even seizure-like activity). What has made this difficult to understand is that we have been viewing MCS as a form of allergy; however, no allergic reaction, even an anaphylactic reaction (e.g eating shrimp and breaking into hives or having trouble breathing) occurs that fast. Those reactions take at least 5-15 minutes to manifest. So why do MCS patients react so instantaneously?
Dr. Klapow’s suggestion, once understood, is that perhaps it is this nematode, Vk, which lives primarily in the sinus and lung tissues, that is reacting to these chemical stimuli, producing acetylcholinesterase, which, in effect acts as a kind of neurotoxin or nerve poison, producing these effects.
Intrigued by this idea, we have embarked in a research project to study this possibility.
We started by asking as many of our MCS patients as possible, if they would allow us to wash out their sinuses and allow Dr. Klapow to analyze this material for the presence of the Vk worm. As of this date (7/14/12) we have looked at 33 patients, and 30 of them have clear evidence of the Vk worm. We have looked at 5 controls, only one of whom is positive for the worm.
The first question appears to be answered: do patients with MCS have the Vk worm present? Over 90% of them do. (The three patients who tested negative are being re-tested now as well.)
Does this worm make acetylcholinesterase? We are working with several research groups and have sent them specimens for analysis. We hope to know this shortly.
Do MCS patients have an increased level of acetylcholinesterase when exposed to a chemical that we know provokes a response in them? Several of our courageous patients have volunteered to check out this possibility and we are working with several labs to provide this information for us.
Does this mean that treating a patient who has this worm might help to cure them of MCS? We do not know yet, but we are looking into this possibility with great interest.
We will keep you abreast of this exciting research being done at GMA, as it unfolds.
This study is closed to new participants. We are sorry, but most GMA studies, including this one, are open only to GMA patients. If you feel you need more information on this as a potential treatment, you or your practitioner are welcome to set up a phone or Skype consult with Dr. Nathan. Make appointments.
Dr. Nathan is unable to provide detailed information to all the patients writing to request free information on how to treat. He plans to do a write up of updated information on the progress in this study when he has enough time in his busy schedule. Thank you for understanding.

I wanted to thank tometonight for the info you kindly posted. I have been to South America, but I believe the hookworms in my nasal passages are currently the result of gardening in thongs or sometimes bare feet in the heat of the summer while using loads of fresh farm manure-horse, lama, chicken, cow, etc. I farm organically and don't use chemicals of any kind. On my last liver cleanse about a month ago approximately a thousand dead hookworms came out of me. I picked up a large truckload of manure last summer and have been infected now just over a year.
I have tried a saline garlic mix squirted up my nose, plus wormwood, black walnut tincture and lastly the most painful was food grade diatomaceous earth. I think I killed some but they seem relentless so I will seek out the medications u mentioned and want to thank u again. We feel the same about GP's, and if I would have listened to specialistds or GP's I'd be dead right now and my son's lungs would have been ruined by a misdiagnosis of asthma. He doesn't have asthma, but I bought the medications when he was 6 so that the doctor wouldn't take my son away from me for being an unfit mother. He is a very athletic 29 year old today. I cured my 8 large thyroid tumors by eating an alkaline diet and refused regular c treatments and I am now c free, and auto immune disease free. Cheers my friend.
TheHealthyAquarian on 2017-11-17I'm not sure what's going on with me....but I'm very sensitive to touch are anything going on with my body! My cat came in and every time I petted him I would feel things jumping on me and trying to get in my nose! It was driving me crazy...my nose itched so bad, I took some lavender oil with a Qtip and wiped my nose with it and two stange very small things fell out that were almost naked to the eye that were very small flat and round trimmed in black circles! I looked the paracites up and it looked to be round worm.I have a lot of Coons that get on my porch and in their food! I was very concerned about this but thought I got them! I cleaned and scrubbed everything down in house and dewormed my cat plus treated his coat and put Damactious Earth all over the floors ,porch, animals,carpet...it's been about a month sense all this happened and now I feel like something crawling around in my sinuses! I'm tripping out now and have been blowing really hard to just get a little mucus and blood out!It could be my amagination are what they call hibby jibbys but I made a appointment with my Dr. To see if she can find anything in there! But the parisites jumping in my nose were differently round worm parasites! I take Diamatious Earth " Food Grade" daily to clean are prevent parasite infestation but do not believe it works for one inside my nose! Hope you find out what's going on with you!
Sharon4 on 2017-11-24Dr. Yes there is parasites that can infect every part of the body! Have you ever watched " Monsters inside Me"? True stories of people being infected with parasites ,some die and some live!There are parasites that eat your eyes, there are parasites that get in your lungs, your liver, your brain and yes your nose! There are parasites that can go right through your feet and take over your entire body!I'm confused sir you said Dr.?So many people get misdiagnosed are accused of being crazy and sometimes it's to late by the time they find the culprit! 87 percent of people have paracites and most don't know are ever will know they are there! And some do! ðŸ˜Ÿ
