Hi doctor,

I want to start using Dr Reckeweg’s Calcarea Carbonica 200 mg and Dr Reckeweg’s Rhus Tox for weight loss and elbow/back pain respectively. Can you please suggest dosage instructions for Calcarea Carbonica and any precautions while taking this medicine? How long will I need to take this medicine to achieve weight loss results?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Well, weight loss is a very gradual process and the treatment includes management of diet, a regular exercise regime and in the end medicine.
  • Many of the patients achieve desired results with strict diet and lifestyle modifications.
  • Homoeopathic treatment for weight loss or for any disease depends upon what kind of personality and constitution the patient has.
  • Calcarea carb is although a very good medicine for weight loss, but does not work in every case.
  • So instead of this, you may start up with Phytolacca berry tablets of Reckeweg which is specifically known for weight loss. You can consult me for weight loss diet plan also.
  • For your back pain, I feel it might be due to extra weight and weakness of back muscles. Both these factors contributing to back pain will be taken care once you start with regular exercise.
  • No medicine can help you no matter how much you take, if your back pain is because of these two reasons. If problem still persist then you can consult me.
  • But my sincere suggestion, try the above things and then switch to medicines.

The Probable causes:

Lack of exercise and diet imbalance.

Differential diagnosis:

Metabolic disorders.

Probable diagnosis:

Obesity.

Treatment plan:

Start with diet modifications and regular exercise.

Preventive measures:

Avoid junk food.

Regarding follow up:

Follow up after 15 days to a homeopathic physician online.---> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/homeopathic-physician

Hello doctor,

My thyroid and cortisol levels are normal. Testosterone is low. My height is 5'7" and weight is 95 kg. Do you recommend Phytolacca berry or Calcarea carb for me? Can you please provide me dosage instruction for both? How long should I continue to see results? I have been trying exercise and diet, but have not been able to see much result. My weight gaining tendency is not normal.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • You can take REPL No 74 (obesity). Take 15 drops in half cup of water thrice a day.
  • Consult a dietitian, for your diet plan or you can get the diet plan from me as well if you want.
  • Exercise regularly at least for an hour. You need to sweat if you want to lose. So, make sure you sweat profusely during your exercise.
  • If you follow the diet, exercise and medicine regime honestly then you should be able to see significant changes within three to six months.
  • Hormonal imbalance treatment requires detailed case taking to get it corrected from root which require proper consultation.

Hi doctor,

Can I take REPL 74 along with Dr Reckeweg’s Rhus Tox? I assume I can continue the above medicine for a few months. Will I get this medicine in all homeopathy medicine stores?

Hello doctor,

I feel slight heavy headedness and uneasiness probably after taking Rhus Tox for 1.5 days (5 doses). Do you suggest to continue with a day or two more and observeing or stopping immediately? Is headache a side effect of Rhus Tox?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • No, Rhus Tox does cause it. It must be due to the changing season.
  • You can stop Rhus Tox immediately also.
