Hi! Last summer I experienced psychological trauma and I felt burning sensation in my forehead and in my crown. This happend three times. After that I went to psychosis. Now I have schizophrenia and I am useing zeldox 40 mg 2/day.I have started homeopathic treatment one and half month ago. I haven´t feel any improvment yet. Maybe my homeopathy hasn´t find the right remedy. If she find the right remedy how long it take before I could reduce my anti-psychotic drug. How long should I wait that my homeopath find the right remedy. Should I change my homeopath if there is no improvment after two or three month? How can I be sure that my homeopat is cabaple to treat me? Here in finland there is no expert homeopath for schizophrenia. Should I ask help from India where are some experts for schizophrenia?

Brief Answer: Hello XXXX, Thank you for your query. Detailed Answer: Hello friend XXXX, If you are not experiencing any relief at all by this time, probably, your Homoeopath has failed to find the right remedy for you. Since schizophrenia is such a disease, we cannot wait for so long. You will be finding such difficulties demanding immediate relief. In Homoeopathy, you know that we are trying to find out the right remedy for YOU and not for your disease. For ten patients of Schizophrenia, we may have to prescribe ten different remedies for cure because, even though there will be some common symptoms of the disease in all the schizophrenic patients, we need to find out what is uncommon, strange and peculiar with each individual case. Therefore, if by chance you have failed to give your case rightly or if your doctor has failed to receive your case rightly, there are chances of missing the right curative remedy. My advice to you is to tell openly to your Homoeopath that you are not at all finding any relief by this time and to give more of your rare and peculiar symptoms in you that are uncommon with other schizophrenic patients to help her to find a different curative remedy for you. If you are not experiencing relief even after a change of remedy, you should change the doctor. 2-3 months are enough to experience relief, even though you will have to continue homoeopathic treatment for many more months thereafter before you can taper down and finally stop the use of your anti psychotic drugs . Your relatives or bystanders also have to be involved in assessing changes in you after getting the Homoeopathic remedy. You can contact doctors in India if you are not confident with the doctors of your country. I can confidently say to you that there are good homoeopathic doctors in India. If you so decide, you can also get back to me with more details. Then I can send to you a case taking format to help you to give your whole case in detail. Then also you can take the assistance of your family members to help me to get you rightly. With Best wishes for immediate relief and cure through Homoeopathy, Dr. C. J. Varghese, Homoeopath,

Hi! Have you analyzed my case?
Answered by Dr. C. J. Varghese 12 hours later
Brief Answer: Hello XXXX, Thank you for your patience. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, I took some time to analyse your case. Therefore the delay. Now, after reading your case, I have taken the following key points as your genetic constitutional features- both physical and mental. 1. Despair of recovery 2. Feeling of helplessness 3. Sudden manifestation of disease symptoms 4. Suicidal disposition and thoughts 5. Chilly patient, worse in cold and better in warmth 6. Headache from strong odours 7. Introverted person 8. Weakness of Will 9. Yielding disposition 10. Sympathetic. From these key symptoms and from reading your whole query, I have concluded that your genetic constitutional curative remedy is Ignatia. Therefore you are advised to collect IGNATIA 10 M. 1 dose and take it at the earliest, preferably at bed time. Do not repeat it as long as you don't feel better. If needed, you can take XXXXXXX phos 6 x tablets 3 - 5 grains, 3 or 4 times a day to make your mind and body more strong. Take it after the single dose of Ignatia 10 M. You are advised to follow up after a month. I would assess your condition again after a month and accordingly advice you the next treatment plan. You can reach me through XXXXXXX In the mean time, I would also urge you to include medication, prayer, good reading, yoga, counselling into your daily activities. This would keep you going in good spirits. Never think that you are the only person in this world with difficulties in life. You have to face them with courage and then only you will enjoy more happy moments thereafter. I strongly discourage you to take chemical drugs once you feel confident to stop them. I am fairly confident that you will show signs of recovery through homeopathy. You will be able to stop them at the earliest. Be positive and have good friends. Find out good friends both boys and girls to be helpful for you. My hearty best wishes for a healthy and happy life in future through Homoeopathy. If you feel that my service to you was satisfactory and helpful, kindly make a review of it and send it to Healthcare magic. Dr. C. J. Varghese Homoeopath,
