“I felt warm after many years. You know I didn’t wear any socks past four days. Feeling awesome. Thank you so much.” I wasn’t surprised at all when Mrs. S said this to me on her second appointment. She had been on Synthroid for her Hypothyroidism since last 7 years and had always been chilly. She had to wear socks even during summer time. During her initial consultation she was in tears while narrating her complaints. She was verbally and emotionally abused by her husband. She was under immense stress but still wanted to help people in need. Her case was very clear and straightforward. I prescribed three doses of Pulsatilla 200 and saw the positive results in the very next appointment. Few more follow up consultations were done and she is off of Synthroid now.
Nausea and vomiting are usually common side effects of certain chemotherapies. Currently nausea is well controlled by Antinausea medications or antiemetics. Despite this some patients still suffer from nausea.
Now the question is can homeopathy provide any support to bring relief to patients suffering from nausea? Homeopathic remedies being gentle and safe, can certainly provide supportive care to the patients suffering from the side effects of chemotherapy. Let us see how and which homeopathic remedies can minimize the side effects of treatment without disrupting the curative treatment in progress. Remember homeopathic treatment can be used as complement to the usual treatment but should never replace the actual treatment.
Individualization is the key to success in homeopathy. For homeopathic treatment choose one or two remedies according to matching symptoms. You can take 6-7 pills of 30C potency.
Nux vomica: This remedy is generally indicated when patient feels worse after eating or taking lot of medicines. Patient always feels better after vomiting. There is constant feeling of nausea after eating in the morning time. Patient might have sour and bitter eructations.

What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is an alternative medicine discovered and developed by a German allopathic physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1794 which is based on the principal of law of similia which means like cures like.
According to this principle a substance that can cause certain symptoms in a healthy person can cure similar symptoms in an unhealthy person when that substance correctly prepared as a homeopathic remedy—can stimulate the body’s curative powers to overcome similar symptoms during illness.
Homeopathic medicines work by addressing the totality of your physical, behavior, and emotional symptoms, the effects of a variety of environmental influences, lifestyle, and patterns of disease within your family. This way homeopathy treats the whole person addressing the root cause of the disease not just the symptoms.
Homeopathy is the gentle and safest mode of treatment.
