Can anyone help.

I'm having really bad reactions to central heating at the moment almost like hayfever.  My eyes become very dry, gritty, sore, smart and even itch at times.  When this happens it tends to affect my vision and produce headaches.  I've also notice I get a strange smell almost like petrol fumes up my nose.  I am a hayfever sufferer but this is worse than anything I experienced in the summer.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I've tried bathing them in euphrasia eye drops but this made them worse yesterday.

Thanks

To deal with the source of the problem in the environment, have the ducts cleaned by a professional.  They accumulate dust, pollens and other impurities.  When the air is forced through them, they get out into the room air.  Once they are cleaned, add a good filter to the furnace and you can also put filters on each of the vents. 

Some other helpful things: Make sure the house is humidified during the winter.  This can be done cheaply by putting pans of water in front of each vent. Also put HEPA filters on your vacumn cleaner.

To deal with the source of the problem of your suseptibility to allergies, see a classical homeopath.

It's best to do both.

Thanks Shirley - it seems I'm worse when I am at work - I can't see my employer bringing in a professional cleaner though - they are rather "tight" when it comes to spending.

The heating system at work is not what I would call radiators - they are a bit like convector heaters - I've never seen this system before.

If it's too dry at work, you might consider a cool mist vaporizer for your desk.  I would also see a classical homeopath for a remedy to work on your suseptibility.

Hi Dr.Abdullah

Ars and Psorinum love heat.This man is suffering from warmth.

You also told earlier give Lyco at 8 P.M.!!!

May your patients be blessed by some divine forces.!!!

Would arsenic and psorinum help symptoms! Pretty miserable at the moment as it effects my vision when they become so dry, smarting and feeling full of grit.

No Toots.

It is not as easy that.You will be worse,if you take any of the two.

Do you like moving around in cold air?

Prefer warmth but find that I improve when out in the fresh air as it seems to clear the nose and head - when inside a building especially work environment I also get dry nose and this weird smell of fumes/petrol up my nose - very peculiar.

Are you bothered more about the dryness rathe than the warmth?What is the humidity percentage where you work?Are you alone getting these dry eyes,or some of your colleagues also have the same symptom?

Do you get the gasoline smell,only during work?

If you get it at other times also,can you specify,when do you normally get it?

 If you can afford it,and your company allows it,"cool mist vaporizer" idea is a good one.

It is the dry heat that is uncomfortable in that my eyes become sore, gritty, smart to the point of not feeling to be able to focus feel the need to squint.    I prefer being warm to cold (hate the cold and it makes me miserable usually hands and feet) but although the office is large and sometimes I don't feel it is overly warm the atmosphere is very dry - the heating is some sort of system that seems to blow the heat out unlike a radiator - I've ever seen anything like it before.  I also think the office is quite dark and find it uncomfortable when working.  Recently had my eyes tested and was told I did have very dry eyes.

The peculiar smell up my nose can happen on a weekend and an evening - at the weekend I was out all day Saturday but after returning to the house the smell appeared - presume it was going back into a warm atmosphere with the central heating being on.  It seems to happen when the house gets warm on an evening - its almost like if the heating goes past a certain temperature it starts the smell off.  In the run up to the summer I guessed I would have problems with the heating system at work as in April when it was not warm enough to have the heating off ( the office gets no natural sunlight - I work for a Football Club and the office is actually situated under the stands) it was hayfever time and when the heating was on I was developing the tight chest syndrome.  My nose gets very dry as does my throat - some people will say to me "oh have you got laryngitis".

Hope this helps

Dear toots

I repertised your case,with the available symptoms.There are 22 remedies covering all your symptoms.

However,the symptom imaginary smell is strong in Nux.Vomica ,and is a peculiar symptom,that has nothing to do with your dryness.In homeopathy,we depend more on peculiar symtoms,for choosing the medicine.

So,I suggest ,you start with Nux.Vomica 30 c, every night,before going sleep,for a week.and report back.

Make sure that there are no odors around you,on you(perfumes etc),and in your mouth,while taking the medicine.

Murthy

Ozone is a homeopathic remedy that has a peculiar sensitivity to the smell of gasoline.  The patient smells even the faintest of gasoline smells, or feels ill from the smell, or imagines that he smells gasoline. (gasoline = petro)

Hi Murthy

Thanks for correcting me. I don't mind such comments. I again say thank you for putting me right.

Now some professional talks, as a homeopath I feel that you are not a qualified homeopathic doctor that is why you put remarks so blindly.

let me teach

what were the ruberics you finalized before announcing your remedy

"My eyes become very dry, gritty, sore, smart and even itch at times"

"I've also notice I get a strange smell almost like petrol fumes up my nose."

He says moving in fresh air relieves him.He is worse as far as his nose,eye symptoms are concerned from the warmth of the room.In a cold climate,it is but natural to prefer warmth.It doesn't mean we have to attach much importance to that.

Where are these modlaities in Ars and Psorinum?Ars is somewhat better in cold air,only as far as headache is concerned.

Psorinum love heat.Wears a fur cap in summer.!!Don't prescribe Psorinum,just like that.

Don't assume degrees alone mean knowledge.You might have spent 4 hrs. a day in college,learning,but we spend much more time than that every day,throughout our life.

Homeopathy,for your information,is revived by lay homeopaths,in the twentieth century.Had not been for those people,it would have remained relatively unknown.

I am not questioning the advantage of formal training.But,that doesn't alone make you a great homopath.Continuous learning,and corecting our mistakes,when pointed out is essential.

I too like discussing.Pl.come forward with your views.

Also,pl.understand that repertory is not the be all and end all.It is only a help.No repertory is perfect.If you read materia medica extensively,and are thorough with the drug pictures,you don't have to consult the repertory all the time.It is needed only in case of complicated cases,where you are unable to decide on the drug,and you see several images of several drugs.
