I have been studying and using homeopathy for personal use since about 1985 or so... Nux V. is a great remedy for drug side-effects/reactions. I've also found Causticum helpful for my wandering leg pains, restless joints, and joint pains.
There is a book by Peter Alex called "The Homeopathic Treatment of Lyme Disease" ~ excellent read. It gives a series of successful case reports. I was so encouraged by this book, I just wish there was a decent homeopathic physician near where I live. I really believe homeopathy may be the only way I can get adequate treatment for Lyme, given how shut down my gut is, how toxic my liver is (fatty liver disease dx in March), and how sensitive I am to everything.
Anyway, Nux V. was the remedy of choice in one of the case reports in the book, given to a man who had had Lyme for a very long time.
I have heard of remedies that were of such stong potency that they had to be handled very carefully - and that a person could get a dose of the remedy just by handling the container...thanks for sharing about this.
