  2. Hello Dr. Homeo.
    I have what appears to be a blocked eustacian tube, with posterior nasal drop, fullness of left ear, impaired hearing. I am constantly swallowing. When I exhale while pinching my nose. I experience temporary relief. This procedure works on the left ear when I lie down. I feel as if I am under water. I am also susceptible to allergies, beginning in the Spring, with sneezing, burning, watering eyes, running/pouring nose. I would be grateful for your comments. Thank you.

  10. Hi Doctor,
    I am 44 years old (woman) with 2 kids. I live in Canada but was born in Egypt. I am suffering from chronic post nasal drip that makes me sometimes snore at night and even wakes me up frpm sleep. I have rectal prolapse sometimes and am generally constopated. My vaginal discharges are always stringy. Before my last period the discharge was quite profuse especially when jumping, yellowish and stringy too.
    I thought I might get pregnant 50 days ago as my husband and I don’t use conventional contraceptives, so I used apple cider vinegar and aloe vera injected in the vagina. My current period came 49 days late, It’s profuse and long. My main problem now is that the bleeding wouldn’t stop! This is my ninth day now bleeding!

    I tried :
    Sepia 30c (once) (obviously wrong choice)
    Lycopodium 30c (twice on the same day)
    Nat Mur 200c (twice) (improved my constipation)

    My tongue is wide, indented, and whitish (clear coating). A little bluish sometimes!

    I don’t feel any pain except slight pinching in the middle of the abdomen.

    I believe my liver and spleen are my weak points as I have deep vertical lines between my eyes. I get a slight pain in the liver sometimes and cramps across my back horizontally. I also have joint pains and cracking knees. I have many red and brown moles. I hate dampness and cold weather. I love dry and warm weather. I am very sensitive to artificial white light and heat of sun. That’s why I took nat mu 200c . I always feel better sleeping on my right side. I am white, a little overweight, brown hair and blue/green eyes.

    I am still bleeding. Pls. help!
