Question Folliculinum

Hello! I am presently finishing my homeopathy studies and am just researching my 4th year project which is on folliculinum. I would appreciate anyone's input regarding the use of this remedy especially with regards to infertility, PCOS, menopause, endometriosis.

Thank you so much.

Carrie

I use it a lot!! I currenty have someone on it fortnightly at 200C for endometriosis and most of her symptoms have gone. She refuses , however to have another laproscopy !! I also currently have a patient on it for acne who has done well. What exactly do you want to know about it?

Ricky,

Thanks so much for replying. I am looking both at prescribing foll as organ support during amenorrhoea, an irregular cycle, flooding, etc and also on the total picture. Have you prescribed based on organ support or taking into consideration the total patient? Also, what potency do you normally prescribe and how often? Have you had a lot of success with foll? Have you previously treated endometriosis and acne successfully with it? Have you had any luck using it in infertility, ovarian cysts, PMT, menopause?

Sorry for all the questions but basically any information would be helpful.

Kind regards,

Carrie

Always the totality of the patient using Melissa Assilem's article and lectures that I have been to.

<<Also, what potency do you normally prescribe and how often? >>

How long is a piece of string?? Depends on the circumstances and the individual. For what it is worth I have had no success with the Foll 4. 7. 9 system. I tend to start at 200. Today I went up to 10M with one patient and 1M with another!! I increase the potency when the last one is not working anymore. The patient on the 200 was taking it fortnightly. This was for endometriosis and her symptoms were rapidly improving. I have gone up to 1M because the pain was a little worse again and the spotting after was back.
The other I have gone up to 10M (acne) because progress stopped after a while with the 200 although she feels well "chilled out" in herself. I tried 1M and it did nothing. I didn't have the 10M in so i decided to try going back to 200 and for the first time since she has been seeing me shehad so much pain on the first day of her menses that she was vomiting. i.e. all the stories about not doing a descending potenty appear to be correct. I am actually giving 1 dose of a nosode (Thuja ) first and if all goes well she is to take the 10M a week before her next period.

<<Have you had a lot of success with foll? Have you previously treated endometriosis and acne successfully with it?>>

Both these are long term things. I have treated IMO endometriosis successfully in that ther has been a great improvement but the patient only gave me 6 months as she had her hysterectomy booked!!

Acne - this is the first time I have tried it for acne - however I have a teenage boy with acne only on his back. i will find out if his mother was on the pill before he was conceived and i might try it if no more success with the present Rx.

<<Have you had any luck using it in infertility,>>
In a case of an infertile woman it got rid of all her panic attacks. Unfortunately her spec came up for IVF on the NHS so that was the last time I saw her. I know she did get pregnant but had an ectopic. She never came back unfortunately.

<< ovarian cysts,>> No

< PMT,> this is part of the picture I would be looking for

< menopause?> It didn't work for me! but then nothing has for my hot flushes !!!

Amenorrhoea - I have had success with this. I think the potency I used was 200.

<<Sorry for all the questions but basically any information would be helpful.

Kind regards,

Carrie
Hope some of this is helpful. There must be others who have used it.

passkey has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Default nosode

folliculinum is a nosode nd I endorse all that has been said -I have used it often with good results - check out the Dictionary of Nosodes

Hi Carrie

to add to what Ricky and Passkey has said -

One of my patient (27yrs) has had a long menstrual cycle (40 days between periods) since she started her periods - after she was given foll 200c. c.s.d. for the first time, her cycle went down to 32 days (among other positive changes). After repetition of the same dose 6 weeks later her cycle went down to 30 days.

So it seems like Foll is doing quite a job....

Kind regards
