ok, thank you! Last week you mentioned stopping FERRUM PHOS for a week. Do I now re-start FERRUM PHOS again, or just continue with CALC FLOUR, NAT PHOS and KALI MUR? Thanks again.

Wait for one more week.

Weekly feedback:
Previous acne almost all gone, no additional ones appeared.
GERD/acid reflux is so much better.
No low energy. No brain fog. Minimal hair loss - normal.
No PMS in terms of irritation.
Menstrual cycle is back to 26 days, which is normal for me.
Related to my cycle and hormones:
- Bloating in my stomach with 4 lbs weight gain still persists.
- Edema around ankles is there but less now that I am taking cell salts.
- A bit of tenderness in both breasts prior to period, but much less than before.
Libido still very low.
Bone spurs painful when walking but less than before. Toes feel sore when walking.
Iron supplements are giving me constipation, so I stopped taking them, but I suspect I still have anemia.
New eyesight symptom this week - it's a bit difficult to see smaller font when reading.
Thank you!

As of now same protocol for a week and feedback.Iron does not suit many and constipates them.

Will review after a week.

Am I still pausing Ferrum Phos? Thank you!

No,continue FP.

A couple of acne spots this week - neck and lower part of face, but much improvement. Everything else remains the same like last week.

Noticing recurring chin hairs. They come back in a day or two after removal with tweezers. I read this "Hirsutism may be caused by high levels of androgen, menopause-related hormone changes, or disorders of the adrenal glands or ovaries."

Would the cell salts I am taking help eliminate this? Thank you so much!

PCO also causes facial hair.

Have bi weekly dose of LACHESIS 200.CELL SALTS TO CONTINUE.

anuj srivastava 11 months ago
Just to check...I took Lachesis 200 bi-weekly for 3 months. It made my acne worse than now and my periods irregular, so you recommended I stop taking it. Are we expecting a different result this time?

Also, I have no thyroid, but take daily thyroid replacement hormones, so I am wondering if these symptoms are related to the absence of thyroid gland. Thanks a lot!

HAVE GRAPHITES 30 three times a day.Do not take lachesis.

Cell Salts to continue.
anuj srivastava 11 months ago
Started taking GRAPHITES 30 along with cell salts. By day 2 old and new symptoms showed up.

Old symptoms being additional acne and breast tenderness (getting close to my period so it may be why as well). Also blurry eye sight.

NEW symptoms are odd and uncomfortable - pulling like, pulsating pain on the right side of my body (on the right side of rib cage); smelly stools with small feces and burning at the rectum;
Super heavy eye lids as if it's hard to keep them open;
bouts of tiredness during the day and in the early evening but then sleeplessness at night (insomnia) and it's as if I don't go into deep sleep;
Feels like my tongue is swollen or larger, I accidentally bit it so hard that tears came to my eyes and it left a dark bruise inside my mouth - it took a couple of days to heal and it is all gone now;
Also feel hot in the afternoon and night but no fever.
On Dec 28 I also had exposure to someone with confirmed covid on Dec 30.
Please advise, thank you!

Stop all remedies and give a feedback after 4 days.Have you been tested?

Declared positive?
anuj srivastava 10 months ago
Thank you for your reply, will do. So far all tests are thankfully negative but was told to quarantine for 14 days.
vw123 10 months ago
Latest update:

Thankfully no covid. All NEW symptoms described above disappeared once I stopped GRAPHITE 30 (and cell salts, too).

Feedback on OLD symptoms:

Acne cleared up. All that's left are a couple of faint, spots that are healing and will likely disappear in the next few days.
No water retention.
Mild breast tenderness before my period.
Period came in on day 30, which is so much better than before when it would come on day 26 or earlier.
Bone spurs in toes are now less painful, but still there.
GERD gradually came back, but mild.
No weight loss.
Vision still occasionally blurry - not all the time.
Libido still low.

Thank you!

Only cell salts nat phos 6x and kali mur 6x three times a day,five tabs of each.

Feedback after a week.
anuj srivastava 10 months ago
Started both cell salts and by day 2 and 3 face acne came back and still persist - chin and neck area. I found that Nat Phos helps with acid reflux. Should I try just Nat Phos 6X first by itself and see if acne get better? Thank you so much!
vw123 10 months ago
Yes go ahead.
anuj srivastava 10 months ago
Hello, here is my latest feedback:
I was only taking Nat Phos 6X and then ran out of the pills a week ago - waiting for them to arrive.
No new acne showed up. The old ones diminished and are now darker spots that need time to heal.
Bloating is less.
Edema around ankles is still minimal to none.
Bone spurs in both big toes are no longer painful, but I can still feel they are there as I cannot fully bend my toes.
Hair loss is minimal to none.
In the meantime, I had blood test for my iron levels:
My iron levels have improved. In October my ferritin was 7, now it is 13 - still on the low side, but better than before.
No weight loss or gain. Is there a cell salt or remedy that would gently increase metabolism?
Thank you so much for all your help!

In addition Kali Mur 6x five tabs three times a day.

Feedback after 7 days.
anuj srivastava 9 months ago
Latest updates: added Kali Mur 6x to Nat Phos 6X and happy to report improvements - I lowered my daily thyroid medication dose because my body seems to be absorbing it better. All other previously described improvements are continuing. Had a mammogram and breast biopsy done for a "sclerosing lesion", "small intraductal papilloma" and "small calcifications." These changes occurred over the past 8-12 months. All findings are benign.
vw123 9 months ago
In addition add Calc Flour 6x to be taken with the current protocol three times a day.

Repeat GRAPHITES ones a day,CELL SALTS to continue.Feedback after 7 days.
anuj srivastava 8 months ago
Hello! I re-started GRAPHITES this week (it took a few days for me to obtain it). A day after starting, I noticed a couple of more acne pop up on the right side of my face (they're still healing), as well as some older ailments resurface - namely post nasal drip and pain on the right side of my head.

Post nasal drip has been an issue with my seasonal allergies, but those have been gone for a few years now. I was surprised to see it resurface, however, to a lesser degree than several years ago.

As for the pain on the right side of my head...I can feel the sensitivity when I touch my head and hair. In the past, the pain used to be quite strong, and sometimes shooting into my right ear, also gradually moving from the top of my head to the side as it healed. In the past it took about 10-14 days for the pain and sensitivity to subside. Now, it's been 4 days when it started and it is already much better (although not totally gone). In the past, I've felt this pain on left and right sides of my head, however only on one side per occurrence.

Thank you!

Continue only cell salts.top Graphites.Keep giving feedbacks every 4 days.
anuj srivastava 8 months ago
A few more acne appeared but managable. A bit of a throat burning irritation felt when swallowing - seems like an old symptom from long ago, possibly due to GERD. Period came in on schedule and was only heavy on day 2 - good improvement vs being heavy for 3-4 days. I can still feel bone spur pain in both big toes, but bearable. Per labs, back to VERY low ferritin/close to anemia again. I was hoping that small improvement/rise in ferritin I had when on Ferrum Phos would hold, but it didn't. Also blurred vision all day yesterday but a bit better today.
