one thing i wanted to mention, i almost always wakeup with mucus in my throat..or that feeling that i have to cough out some mucus

looking at the fact that i dont get nasal discharge easily, unless i take anti-biotics..and the fact that when i get a cold/flu, my facial puffiness increases..

could this all be related..
maybe when i sleep my nasal passage effects this, causing puffines etc?

maybe my lymphathic system stores water once it sense mucus around the area..?

We will get to the bottom of it.

How many days has it been since you took the remedy and have you noticed any changes.

Hi,

the first time you suggested me to take Lachesis (one dose)..
i think it has been over a week..

the second time you suggested..I think i took it around 2-3days ago and have not noticed any changes.

One thing i can say is, puffiness has gotten better after my cold/flu ended. As in, it increased ALOT when i had the cold..after cold/flu ended, it has come down to the usual puffiness that i used to get daily.

the remedy Lachesis i took, i have not ntoiced any changes.

Looking forward to hearing from you
THanks

Here is what I have in mind to permanently address all your health issue.

Stop all supplements, remedies, medicines and go through your coming periods, at least one cycle if more than 3 weeks away or two cycles if upcoming period is less than 3 weeks away.

This will ensure that all symptoms have risen without any suppression and then I can hopefully prescribe the right remedy.

In the meanwhile eat a balanced diet & keep yourself well hydrated. You can eat an iron rich diet (apple, spinach, red meat etc) but no supplements.

I am sorry but there is no short cut otherwise we will be doing hit & miss with several other remedies.

One more very important thing you can do daily:

Take one small clove of raw garlic, peel it, chop it into tiny pieces, let it remain as such for 10 minutes. Swallow (don't chew) with anything (water, juice, milk etc). Do this in the middle of lunch.

It has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Hi,
Okay i will do as you suggested..my monthly cycle is 3weeks away ..
And in the last two months, i have only taken Lachesis remedy

I will clear out everything for the next three weeks, and then i will let you know

Will also eat garlic cloves..did you mean i should eat chopped pieces between my lunch, as in eat my lunch and halfway in between i should eat garlic?
Or did you mean i should eat it during the time between breakfast and lunch?
I just want to be sure i am following exactly what you want me to

Thanks

You should eat your lunch and halfway during eating your lunch, eat the garlic clove as described (not between breakfast & lunch).

Hi,

as we discussed, the three weeks are over now..my menstrual cycle is almost ending

I'm sorry I forgot to report the garlic part in 5days...I have noticed no significant changes
But one thing, due to my job timings, I wasn't able to do this very regularly..I'm trying my best..

I do feel this puffiness has something to do with my nose..
Often times when I'm sleeping at night my nose feels dry, sometimes I open my mouth for a few seconds so I can breathe well
after taking the antibiotics, my nose has been running well than before. Otherwise I never used to get a runny nose (nasal discharge)

looking forward to hearing from you

fitness 6 years ago
No

I'm very thorough n detailed about noticing changes..so there have been no changes otherwise I would definitely mention it to you

Please take two doses of Pulsatilla 200c, 12 hrs apart and report back.

One dose is one pellet.

First dose at night, second in the morning.
 
fitness 6 years ago
Okay thanks
I will order the remedy on this forum and I'll take it as soon as I receive the remedy

I see that you are also doubting that this maybe related to sinus, nose issues..I feel that too..so Im looking forward to trying this remedy

can I re-start my iron supplements? I don't take those over the counter tablets..I take natural iron supplement, it's basically extract of
liver in a liquid form..
Thanks
