(a) To help my son's hayfever. (b) To find a less toxic way of dealing with an appalling hangover! One of my closest friends, is a practising homeopath, and I thought I'd give it a go.
(a) Apis worked immediately to relieve the acute hayfever symptoms of my son when he was a toddler. It reduced his puffy eyes and stopped him sneezing. (b) Nux vomica cleared my head and dealt with my nausea immediately.

Condition: Epilepsy

I've had epilepsy for eight years, but wanted to reduce, or even stop, the chemicals I was prescribed. When I was a child, my grandmother used to give me homeopathy for basic ailments (she'd give me Arnica when I fell and banged my head, Belladonna when I had fever, or Nux Vomica when I had digestion problems). I then kept using homeopathy for sore throat and colds, and other ailments. When I was said a homeopath could help me with my epilepsy, I didn't hesitate before going to see him.
Since I've been taking homeopathy, I've been able to reduce my chemical treatment for epilepsy, very gradually. I now take half of the dose I was prescribed by my neurologist. Since then, I've had much less seisures, and now, when it happens, I don't need to rest for a long time to be well again, as I used to do. Moreover, I can concentrate much better on any studies or work I'm doing, for I no longer have the impression my brain is rolled in a wollen sheet, or surrounded by fog, which is one of the side effects of the chemicals I'm taking. The other benefit I drew from reducing my chemicals is that I fall asleep much less during daytime. It was very annoying to miss half of a lesson, at school or college, because I was asleep, and couldn't struggle against this drowsiness. I now hope, one day, I'll be able to stop taking the chemicals, and only keep taking the homeopathic remedy I was presccribed.

I had been in and out of the doctors for years and nothing was helping me till one day my friend told me about a homeopath she knew and has helped her.
I used to be so angry and argumentative before my periods, during and after at times. I always criticised my friends or a boyfriend if there was someone brave enough to stick around. Each month there was someone to annoy me and be in my black books.
when i first took Nux Vomica it was the first time in my life when my period came and I wasnt even aware it was coming. I was so used to have terrible moods for at least a week prior to them that I never looked at the calendar, but after nux that was never the case, life without PMT is such a joy!

After eating sea fish, I got whole body rash for 3 days until I called a homeopathy through the phone,
1 remedy with 30C settled my rash. I needed not to go to emergency to have any antihistamine shot. It was so amazed why there was such an amazing modality that we never knew. Homeopathy always works for me.

Condition: Cough

Almost 20 years ago I went to a homeopath for the first time. My, at the time, boyfriend had had an affair and I got a severe cough. I went to see doctors 3 times, no one could help me. They thought it was wopping cough, but all test came out negative. In the mean time I got worse and worse, and I just KNEW it was because of the infidelity and my own sorrow. After tree weeks of coughing day and nigh, I finally saw a homeopath. I met a woman who was like I had never know before: she had no prejudices to what ever I told. For the first time in my life (I was 26 years) I met someone who really listen to me. She prescribed Nat Mur D200, and I sleep the whole night for the first time in tree weeks. The treatment went on for two weeks, and all the cough was gone and a new life was unfolding for me. It took me another year to tell her the real reason I came, the infidelity, which in it self is a story only to be told by NatMur. :)
I would go as far to say that homeopathy has saved my life. Maybe not the physical life, but my soul and spirit. Like so many others I was on the "package" of this western world life, with medical drugs and striving for money and acknowledgment from society. I have been a homeopath-patient for 20 years now, and I see how my life really started to unfold it self after my first dose of homeopathic medicine. It's no coincidence. It's my truth. I thank homeopathy for the chance it gave me to see my self and my own life path. (I'm now educated as both a homeopath and a Waldorf-Steiner teacher.)

Following a RTA and sustaining damage to my knee I had severe pain, worse every winter. All conventional medicine could offer was analgesics. For several years I had acupuncture throughout the winter. This helped until the following autumn when the pain worsened. A colleague had tried homeopathy for a similar problem and although I didn't really think it would help I decided to give it a go as the acupuncture never really solved the problem and I didn't much fancy having acupuncture every year for the rest of my life.
After the first remedy I was amazed at the improvement and since then I have been pain free, That was nearly 30yrs ago. What I also noticed, and was observed by others, was that I became much more relaxed at work, no longer irritated and impatient with colleagues who I perceived as inefficient. I continued to be a conscientious worker but much easier to get on with!

Seeking for alternative medicine
My husband had a stomach pain, went to see three allopaths and did not help him with the pain. On the third day, I was about to take him to the ER and before that I try the last resource nux vomica and in 15 minutes, he got up and the pain was gone.
