    Hi new to the forum and wonder if I can ask the following question to all homeopaths.
    I've been recommended to take a remedy to help with weight loss. I am eating healthy and exercising but I just need a bit of a boost. This remedy contains:-
    • Kali phos (6X)
    • Calc fluor 6X
    • Calc phos (6X)
    What would it do for me - would it help speed things up a bit and just give me the encouragement I need. I'm looking for something that doesn't increase my appetite which I find a lot of things do - strangely enough!

    The thing with homeopathy is that, in most cases, it's not just a case of taking a particular remedy for a particular issue. Exceptions are things like taking Arnica for shock or bruising etc.

    Mostly though, a homeopath will have to look at your whole picture, which involves how you feel about things, how you see the issue or issues you have, what symptoms you experience etc. so it's not just going to be a case of "I want to lose weight" and a response of "Here you go, take these".

    Were you given these remedies by a trained homeopath? If so, they will have been selected based on the picture they have built up about you personally. If not... who recommended them and on what information?

    No-one prescribed them - a friend found them on a website that sells mostly homeopathic remedies and herbals and thought that it may help. I understand the prinicples behind homeopathy and guess these are a sort of tissue salt or biochem remedy. I don't' really want to go and see a homeopath and just wondered if this remedy would help in my quest to lose weight and keep me on the straight and narrow. Would it do any harm? Will it help? I feel that it has to be a lot safer than some of the weight loss stuff that's out on the market that raise the heart level etc. make you sweat and have palpitations - I don't think this remedy would do that - and I felt it would be a safer bet.

    Sometimes willpower just isn't enough! Would it help or could it cause long term problems?

    Hi,
    Whilst homeopathic remedies are safe to take -for chronic, long term issues, they always need to be prescribed by a homeopath in the context of an individual consultation. As a homeopath myself, I would have no idea at all what remedies to give you without takng your case.
    I'm afraid there are no short cuts to using homeopathy although there are some good homeopathic remedies available in pharmacies for short term acute problems, like colds, bruising, strainsetc. There are also many sources that describe remedies as 'homeopathic' when they're nothing of the sort! (Although the ones you mention probably are).
    Sorry I can't be more helpful but if you're really serious about losing weight, I'd say, pay the money and see a professional person! Hom

    Anything,nothing or some success?

    It could do something, but that would depend on your individual picture. It could be beneficial, or it could have some adverse effect.

    Without determining your picture, it's not possible to say.

    Agree totally with the previous post.- Homeopathy's energy medicine, so if the energy of the remedy resonates with that of the 'patient', there can be a healing response. If it doesn't, probably nothing will happen.
    If you continue taking the remedy for a very long time e.g. many weeks or months, you could in theory 'prove' the remedy, i.e. produce a symptom that the remedy is capable of healing but this rarely occurs in practice.
    So, in a nutshell, the remedy's like a key in a lock-if it's the wrong one it'll do nothing, if it's the right one, it'll open the door.......Hom

    OK thanks for that - what does the individual remedies mainly do
    i.e.
    • Kali phos (6X)
    • Calc fluor 6X
    • Calc phos (6X)
    Are they known for losing weight. Wonder if anyone else has tried this remedy?

    You do see some 'combination' remedies sometimes, but it's not the most common way to take homeopathic medicine, whic is usually given, one remedy at a time. I've never experienced these three remedies being used to encourage weight loss and I can't see how they'd do that really.
    Each remedy has an enormous indicated 'picture' but to give you an idea:
    calc flour often focuses on bones, joints and musculosketal problems.......
    calc phos also covers a similar field and has also, a mental and emotional picture of discontentment, boredom, need to travel........
    kali phos covers mental fatigue, headaches, depletion...........
    They are al derived froml minerals.
    It sounds as if you are looking for something to keep you motivated and I don't know that the above would do that. I hate to state the obvious but the best way for most people to lose weight is to eat less! This sounds easy but food is a very emotional issue -eating and our feelings are closely connected and one way homeopathy would help, might be to help you to resolve the emotional stuff so that it's easier not to eat so much.- That is, if you have the 'right' remedy......Hom

    To add to what Hom says...

    Here's some links showing the types of things that would indicate the individual remedies...

    Kali Phosphoricum - Homeopathic Remedies
    Calcarea Fluorata - Homeopathic Remedies
    Calcarea Phosphorica - Homeopathic Remedies

    Though it would be necessary to rule out other remedies based on your own individual picture.

    As Hom says, it's unusual to take a combination of remedies, and I'd certainly be suspicious of any 'product' that claims something as general as being a slimming aid based on a specfic combination of homeopathic remedies.

    Apart from the few specific remedies such as arnica (as previously mentioned), if you are looking for homeopathic treatment for a condition then you really do need to see a homeopath who can look at your individual picture (the remedies needed for you to lose weight could be completely different to someone else who wants to lose weight), or you need to do a lot of learning about homeopathy yourself so that you can look up your own picture from all the remedies and find what suits yourself.

    Certainly some food for thought on this. I do wonder when you read the links how they got to this being a slimmers assist.

    Just signed up, but noticed your post as im a homeopath and use metabolic detox with Nutri for weight loss issues. I wouldn't recommend remedies for 'weight loss' any way, Id be looking more at holistic prescription for the whole patient but also taking into account their toxic load. Metabolic detox is a process to clean out environmentals, bad food choices, residue of chemicals in the body and this 2 week programme WILL have weight loss as a side effect but improves energy, skin, pain and inflammation etc.

    Janet, the detox was done through a company called NUTRI but if you are not a practitioner then they will refer you to a nutritionist who will support you through the program. Im in Yorkshire but can do it for you by SKYPE/email if you want. Get in touch if you want to go ahead.
