Brief Answer: Hello friend, Thank you for the mail. Detailed Answer: Hello friend, I am very happy to hear that you felt relief by Ignatia. It is the same way as you felt that patients express their relief after getting their right Homoeopathic remedy for their complaints. Two or three weeks are not a period to repeat the remedy. I also cannot now say after how many days or weeks you can or should repeat the dose because the relief by the right remedy is not for a shorter period. You have to wait till you feel that there is no further relief by waiting or your symptoms again become worse after the initial period of relief. These things vary from individual to individual depending on their susceptibility, constitution, individualization, genetics etc. It is always better to wait than to repeat early to get full relief. In a case of schizophrenia, you should not get delusions, suspicions, or become maniacal. You should feel the calmness and coolness inside. You need not bother now about the potency. If it was 1M, then also it will act positively. Once the action of 1M got exhausted then only you need to go to higher potencies like 10M, 50M or CM respectively. My advice is to wait till you feel again worse or feel that you are not improving. Once again my best wishes for a total cure through Homoeopathy. Wishing you a happy and healthy new year, Dr. C. J.

I red something about Hering's Law of Cure and it said Symptoms of a chronic disease disappear in definite order, going in reverse and taking about one month for every year the symptoms have been present. So is this true in my case. Does recovery take one month or more?

Brief Answer: Hello friend, Thank you for your query Detailed Answer: Hello friend, Hering's law is the right law for determining whether you are being cured in the right direction. You have to verify that the symptoms that were more serious should disappear first. Those symptoms that appeared last will disappear first. You will feel relief from within. You have expressed it as healing sensation in head or repairing in your brain. So I have concluded that you are getting the right remedy and you are in the right path of cure. As I told you earlier, I cannot put it in terms of one month or something like that. It depends on your constitution. So be patient and don't loose hope. Once again my best wishes, Dr. C. J.
