Answer
Hello Anand!

I am not sure if your disc slipped due to an accident or if it happened over time due to scoliosis or other muscle-skeletal problem?

If an accident or fall, you can try the remedy Hell-n for compression of the spine after a fall - a 30C twice a day for 2-3 days should show some effect.
You need some manual adjustment and physiotherapy to restore proper alignment of the spine and strengthen the muscles. I am not sure if this was done or not and if it helps or not.

Hypericum is a good remedy for nerve pain and damage - a 30C or 200C may help with that.
Having said this, there are at least 20 remedies that can be useful for your condition, but to select the correct one, more detail is necessary and possibly a follow up with a homeopath who can take your case and try 2-3 remedies in succession.

YOu can also give Phosphorus 30C or 200C a try.
Other possible remedies: Silicea, Symphytum, Ruta or Rhus t.

I hope it helps,
Ati

Expertise

I can answer questions about homeopathy, sequential treatment and heilkunst - who can be treated, what the treatment is for different ailments. German New Medicine can help you understand your symptoms as they relate to a particular emotional shock and can show you if you are still ill or already healing.

Experience

My experience in holistic medicine began with my own preference for a natural and non-medicinal lifestyle. This lead me to my introduction to homeopathy when I realized there were safe and exceptionally effective medciines i could give to my children instead of pills. The more I learned about homeopathy, the more it made sense, so I took the courses, worked at a clinic and started working with patients soon after. I have been practising for 8 years now and every day I continue to learn from my clients and from the many interesting courses I take to complement what I already do. Today I incorporate knowledge from German New Medicine, Orgonomy, Anthroposophy and many other intersting fields, including informational and vibrational medicine when I work with clients. And the additional expertise helps me see a more complex picture of what is needed to help the person.
