 Hi,

 

Your symptoms match those of Anacardium.....so I would suggest that you continue it for some time. If you notice any effect, the dosage and potency can be adjusted based on that. One point I can suggest is that if your IBS is old (say more than 6 months) and the "Eating temporarily relieves all symptioms" feature is very pronounced; then after few days with 30c, you may use the 200c - not for too long say 4-5 days to see how it behaves. Take one or max two doses of that per day - morning and evening.

 

Can you mention, after eating when sysmptoms go away, how long does it take to come back and whether it comes back suddenly or gradually and what is the peak time of the discomfort after eating - say 0.5 hr or 2 hrs or later than that, etc.

 

Another point that I'll mention is that the headache sysmtom that you have is very typical. There is a medicine called Homarus which has it as the main symptom along with IBS. But its an infrequently used medicine applied only for very specific cases. So I would suggest you continue with the Anacardium but study about Homarus as the next option.

 

 

Thanks.....

Thanks so much. The headaches are my main symptom. Instead of feeling in my rectum that I have to go to the bathroom, I have the sensation over my eye. It's very odd. Eating sometimes makes the head pain hurt a bit less but only for about 20 minutes or so.

Before any of you even consider this madness called homeopathy -

http://www.ted.com/t...ames_randi.html

 

Beware.  Homeopaths have not yet proven the effectiveness of their craft (I would not call it medicine though).

Such concoctions do not perform any better than placebos. Do some unbiased research on google and by talking

to good doctors. I am sure you will come to the same conclusion.

Hi,

 

I personally think that the important point in this regard is whether I get any benefit or not. Theory doesn't matter that much.....after all many of us have undergone numerous tests but no definite cause is found for our IBS. That does not mean we don't have this illness because we feel it all the time.

 

I had polyp (tumor-like growth) in my nostrils during childhood.....underwent surgery twice and it came back. I had serious difficulty breathing and used to take in air through my mouth instead of nose. Then I underwent homeopathic treatment for almost one year and the polyp gradually shrank and eventually disappeared. That was 1987 and it has not come back since then. You can believe me as I am not selling anything here and don't intend to either......can even tell you the medicine that was used....Sangunaria 200.

 

That developed my belief in homeopathy......unfortunately many years have passed and the doctor who had treated me has passed away. So I cannot go to him anymore and it is very difficult to get good homeo doctors.

 

Just sharing my experience.....final decision is with the respective person\s.

 

Thanks.....

Hi,

 

I second roy_s.....my father had the same problem as roy_s with his nostrils and homeopathy was able to cure him....numerous members of my family have had chronic conditions which allopathy medicine had no cure ...but homeopathy ended solving it.....HOMEOPATHY WORKS...it is used as a conventional form of treatment all across india and several other countries.....sometimes personal experiences are much more meaningful and valuable than what articles, internet, or top notch allopathic doctors say......there is a big portion of the world out there where people are healing through naturapthic treatments like homeopathy, acupucnture, ayurveda.....that is why we have this forum...so that we can share our experiences about these effective treatment which people may just not be aware about......

I've been taking Lycopodium Clavatum for about a week now.  I've also been trying a low fodmaps diet for about a month or so.  When I first began the diet, after a few days, I felt fantastic.  I had a couple of weekends where I strayed from the diet a bit, but not terribly, and I did notice that I felt worse for a few days afterward, but returned to an "ok" state within a day or two.

 

After taking the Lycopodium for the past week, I have noticed absolutely no change in my symptoms.  In fact, today is possibly the worst I have felt since I started the diet about a month ago.  I'm extremely bloated with cramping and constipation.

 

I'm getting terribly discouraged.  I'm grateful that my symptoms don't seem to be as horrible as some people, but in the end, that only goes so far.  I just want to be able to enjoy food again, and I'm afraid that is never going to happen.  I may just go back to my doctor and ask about these IBS drugs that are on the market now.

 

Good luck all, but I just don't thing the homeopathy is working for me.  I tried it.

VintageDougers,

 

I am so sorry to hear that you have not found success with homoepathy yet. The points below might help u

 

Some things to remember about homeopathy,

 

1) It takes time to work (one week isn't enough). Give it atleast 2 weeks.

2) The medicine is specific to an individual: Lycopodium may or may not be the medicine for you, Alumina could be your medicine (another medicine good for constipation) or even Senna (another medicine good or constipation)

3) Are you taking the correct potency: 6C could work better than 30C for you

4) Are you under the guidance of a professional homeopath

Guys Please view this forum very carefully cause I am a new member to this forum and I am current Ibs-sufferer IBS-C. I have been going thru a lot of hell over the last 8 months and have tried everything and anything. I have done a lot of research and was basically devastated with my life but now it seems to become a bit better as I have becoming better with homoeopathy. After viewing this forum about IBS-C while I was doing research I was sympathazing and empathizing with all IBS-C sufferers who have been undergoing pain for years and years without any proper solution which will completely eliminate it. Thus I want to help those people as a current IBS-sufferers who feel that IBS can only be managed and not cured. Thats total nonsense. True, that there is no cure for IBS with conventional allopathy medicine as I am very much aware of that. But HOMOEPATHY, may not be a familiar term for many IBS-sufferers. So please, if you want to know any specific questions about IBS-C in terms of diet and cure using homoepathy. Please message me at this forum as I want to help those guys who have been suffering for years and years just like I have been for the last 8 months. Trust me I could help answer your questions better than these STUPID NORTH AMERICAN DOCTORS who dont care and will never help solve and HEAL ure IBS forever.

 

Your title -

Homeopathy is the only cure for IBS!

is arrogant and misguided. "Stupid north american doctors" have saved many lives before and after homeopathy was created. Their medicines might have side-effects, but often they can be ignored.

So, quit the theatrics while you peddle your stuff.

Homeopathy worked for me and is working for many others....it is an experience.....allopathy doctors are not able to solve IBS...I never mentioned anything about them treating other problems....there is no cure for IBS with allopathy doctors....if you are able to find a allopathy doctor or gastroentlogist who is able to give you a complete cure of ure IBS without any recurrence good luck with that....

As I said recently, whatever floats your boat.

 

But this is stunning -

"and is working for many others" - Really who and how many ? Is this documented ? Then why don't homeopaths declare that theirs is the only IBS cure that works ?
"allopathy doctors are not able to solve IBS" - How do you know if none of them ever  solved a single case of IBS ? proof ?

"there is no cure for IBS with allopathy doctors" - because it did not work for you ? or just because you think so ?

 

and on a lighter note - "it is an experience" - It sure is. You can't go wrong with all da alkahol smile.png

If you don't believe in Homeopathy nobody is asking you to follow it.....you can choose to go your own way....I have benefited from it....by "others" I am referring to acquanitances, friends, family members....homoepathy is not prevelant in  north america, especially in USA, that is the biggest reason you don't hear about homeopathy in USA.....allopathy doctors have not been able to cure my IBS and I have visited several allopathy doctors....and whoever I have spoken with who has IBS has not found solution with allopathy doctors....forums are about expressing your personal experiences and is a means of sharing information...viewers who view this forum can choose to try and see if this works for them or not it is solely upto them......I am sharing my personal experience....just like your sharing "story of my life".

 

If homoepathy does not float your boat, you are welcome to go to different forum posts and find a solution you feel would work better for you....at the end of the day we are all trying to find solutions that works best for our individual selves....

I am not a doctor, but a patient of IBS ( Irritable Bowel Syndrome) since 20 years.

Let me jot down my positive experiences with some medicines ( steroid & Ayurveda ) if it helps some one. 

 

 

Generally since birth I had a constipated constitution.

Sometimes used to clear bowels once in 2 to 3 days, sometimes daily once that's the max freq

of course until and unless I faced some rare bouts of dysentery due to some external causes once or twice a year.

This part of my life didn't have IBS.

 

In my later teens (17 and above) IBS started without my knowledge.

 

 

My symptoms were....

Though I have cleared my bowel in the morning, again another Bowel movement

1. when tensed specially during exam days ( thrice a day, great change for me )

2. after having a glass of warm milk, even if I already had my bowels cleared in the morning

3. after heavy breakfast or a sure one within half an hour after lunch.

4. after a walk/cycling/running.

 

Gradually even without any tension or nervousness on relaxed day I started running to loo thrice a day

 

I started smoking since when I was 18 years old.

Contrary to the popular belief smoking helped in controlling my frequent bowel movements and bowel movement reduced to once a day on a relaxing day.

However the above numbered actions kept on my urge for motion as usual.

 

Gradually, after few years of smoking I was back to IBS with 3 to 4 even 5 times a day on even a relaxing day.

 

I never had dysentery like motion(unless external reason), only the first motion of the day was hard and the rest were softer but in shape.

Even while in the mid of the road sometimes all of a sudden I have to drop down into public loos (Sulabh sauchalay) to attend call of nature.

This became frequent.

 

In the meanwhile (in my 30s) I was diagnosed with some other ailment in another organ and was prescribed prednisone for 1 month and tapering it down throughout the 2nd month. Pls do not take this medicine without doctor's advise. Its a steroid. I had stopped smoking in between for 10 months after 18 yrs of continuous smoking.

This 2 months dose cured my disease for almost one year 3 months.  I never felt the IBS during this period. Motions being once daily.

 

After this I started smoking and IBS also started as a trusted accompany

Walking after meals made it worse, walking most of the time turned to hurrying for loo.

Along with the above 4 symptoms this time I had..

 

5. bloating

6. flatulence ( any time, any where even while driving/riding bikes )

7. the urgency of clearing increased, holding/retaining capacity decreased.

8. occasional oesophagus burnings/ heart burnings (acidity)

 

 

In the meanwhile my search & studies for IBS, IBD, colitis went on for alternate medicines.

Self prescribed

 

Diarex & Himcospaz both Himalayan Drugs &

Triphala-Gugulu tablets from Patanjali ( Ramdev )

 

Dosage- Hit & trial and some studies as I am not a doctor in any type of medicines

 

Diarex 2Tab, Himcospaz 2 balls after lunch,

Diarex 1Tab, Himcospaz 2 balls after dinner,

 

Triphala-Gugulu 2 tablets before sleeping  ( gap between dinner & sleeping atleast 30 min )

 

After 1 month Himcospaz was reduced to 2 + 1 ball each time.

Diarex 1 tab after after lunch and no diarex at night.

Triphala-gugulu - 1 Tab

This change I made after observing my progress.

 

This started working wonders after 1 week of starting my doses.

So reduced after 1 month.

Went on for 4 months this way, IBS/Spasmic colon seemed to disappear.

After 4 months suddenly I stopped all these medicines as I was confident.

(I think this is where doctor's consultation and experience is required, tapering medicines and correct dosage)

 

 

IBS re-started with all the above symptoms

 

 

Consulted medicine specialist and then Gastroenterologist in one of the most famous and busy gastroenterology hospitals of India.

Hearing my 20 years gastro enteric history and remission with the steroid prednisone, both had guessed Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

Both suggested and so went through endoscopy of stomach,

Colonoscopy(till terminal Ileum),

Segmental Biopsy of colon.

Liver Function test,

Renal test,

Complete blood profile.

 

 

Results came out,

I saw everything normal in colonoscopy and only colitis in biopsy.

Doctors too ruled out everything and remark after seeing all my report was

I am suffering from IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

They didn't feel I need any medicine for the degree of colitis I have, neither did he prescribe.

Its not ulcerative colitis

Concluded IBS is psychological.

 

 

Now I feel I will continue with

 

Diarex & Himcospaz both Himalayan Drugs &

Triphala-Gugulu tablets from Patanjali ( Ramdev )

 

but will consult some ayurvedic doctor for correct dosage and follow up dosage.

 

I am going for these medicines and dosage as I have another successful example.

One of my very close relative (just age above 75 ) had the same symptoms.

His bowel clearance urgency was more aggressive may be due to old age too.

Only he is a non-smoker through out his life.

 

Gastroenterologist concluded that his case is due to aging, degenerative condition.

I had prescribed him the same medicines,

but a bit lower dosage..

 

Diarex 1Tab, Himcospaz 2 balls after lunch,

Diarex 1Tab, Himcospaz 1 balls after dinner,

 

Triphala-Gugulu 1 tablets before sleeping  ( gap between dinner & sleeping atleast 30 min )

 

Somewhere in between probably after a month seeing the progress,

I replaced his Diarex with Kutaja ghanavati 1 Tab each twice a day

 

Slowly tapering this to only ( sorry I don't remember exactly the in between tapered dosage)

 

Himcospaz 1 balls after lunch,

Himcospaz 1 balls after dinner,

 

at present

 

Finally now he is having only
Himcospaz 1 ball after lunch per day.

 

He has started this course 6 months ago and continuing this till today patiently unlike me.

His frequency of spasmic colon clearance ( IBS ) diminished from daily to weekly to monthly.

Now since last 2 months he is free of IBS or sudden spasmic colon.

 

But as usual I don't know how long to continue though planning to reduce Himcospaz to 1 ball per day now.

 

From my experience what I found that ther is hope if we can get 

University qualified and experienced ayurvedic doctors for effective use of these medicines.

Shh - After a few days/weeks of success, Triphala (my triphala powder had some seeds which are laxatives) failed me, as did western laxatives. But I hope it works for you. Homoeopathy did not work for me...not one bit.

Prolific Member -

 

Any logic/analysis & study for taking Triphala powder mixed with laxatives for IBS ?

 

Triphala powder mixed with laxatives ( it will have adverse effect if u have D-type or alternating C & D-type IBS,

only for C-IBS it can be effective to some extent, then for C-IBS also need to take Liv-52 DS tabs too along with some other combo)

 

Try Triphala with gugulu combination. gugulu is natural anti inflammatory.

Last Ayurveda needs to be continued for minimum of 3 months patiently for lasting effect and may be till 6 months or even 1 year and consult proper experienced and qualified ayurvedic doctors (say Pune Univ, BHUniv. some established universities of India) for the dosage.

Its administration and also herb combinations vary depending on constitution and weight of the patient.

(Ayurvedic medicines are just not buy it and have it and get cured )

 

It worked for you for few days or weeks suggests it will work on our body but with proper dosage, combination and duration.

 

Lastly I did not depend on Triphala alone, I combined it with

Himcospaz & Diarex was used too ( both are ayurvedic from Himalayan Drugs).

 

and also

Somewhere in between probably after a month seeing the progress,

I replaced the older patient's Diarex with Kutaja ghanavati 1 Tab each twice a day.

 

Himcospaz has ginger like sunthi, etc  and.....

Diarex has Kutaja, Bael, Shankh(conch shell powder i.e., natural calcium), etc...

you can get the constituents from their website or google

I saw a homeopath for a few visits.   I believe that the only people that benefit from homeopathy are the homeopaths.   I was given tinctures, powders, and liquids that were utterly useless.   IBS is nasty and we are all desperate for miracle cures.   Taking powdered frog skin is not going to save us.

The  statement that the only people benefit from homeoapathy  are the homoepaths is not true.....there are people in india who have IBS-C and IBS-D that are getting completely cured and back to their normal lifes...I have personally spoken with several individuals......it is just a shame that homeopathy is looked down upon and joked upon in north america ,,,,,,if gastroentologists and family doctors are unable to solve the mystery of IBS and find a cure.....they look down upon homeopaths and their way of treatment......how do u explain several people going to homeopaths in india and getting cured of their IBS.....HOMEOPATHY IS REAL...north america may not have qualified homeopaths.....
