    Dear Dr, Sharma,

    My health food store here in Loma Linda CA, called Clark’s Nutrition, printed out your article and suggested homeopathic remedies. So far, I have tried Nux Vomica and Sulphur for IBS with diarrhea. Also, I tried Arsenica Album for depression. I believe that all three remedies have given me some relief, but not totally. In addition to the IBS, I also have anxiety and depression. Please tell me what you would suggest. I don’t know if I should keep taking more of the above homeopathics or wait.

    Thank you so very much!
