A successful businessman (age 50) was involved in a car crash during the Mumbai floods in August 2005. He sustained serious head injuries to the left side of his head and was in a coma for two months. When he awoke, he found that his right hand was paralysed and he had stiffness in the right leg. After months of physiotherapy, he recovered almost completely except for his right leg, which had to be dragged. In November 2008 he moved to Puttaparthi and ran a small restaurant close to Prashanthi Nilayam, where the practitioner met him when she went for lunch on 20 November 2014.
The patient sought help for severe headaches on the left side and sharp stabbing pain in his upper back between the right shoulder and spine, which restricted movement of his right shoulder. The headaches had begun three months ago. They were constant throughout the day. Strong painkillers gave him temporary relief for short periods only. To cope with the pain, he sometimes took more painkillers than prescribed. He felt very low at times and confided that he had tried to kill himself on at least two occasions, most recently about two months ago, when he had tried to cut his wrists. He showed the practitioner the cut marks.
The practitioner counselled him and gave him the following remedy that evening:
CC10.1 Emergencies + CC11.3 Headaches + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + CC18.5 Neuralgia…TDS in water (5 pills in 200ml water, 5ml per dose)
The patient took his second dose the next morning (21 November) but forgot to take the afternoon dose because he was very busy until he was hit with a severe headache. Instead of taking his usual painkiller, he immediately took the vibro remedy, and within a minute, his headache had completely subsided. That evening, when the practitioner returned, the patient also reported that his shoulder pain was 96% better. The patient was very grateful for the pain relief, telling the practitioner, “Swami Himself has sent you to me.”
After this, the patient took the remedy consistently. After 8 days (28 November), he reported that he was free of headaches, his shoulder pain was still 96% better, and he felt much calmer and more at peace. He made the same report in early December. Shortly after this, the remaining shoulder pain was resolved. When the practitioner contacted the patient for an update on 21 December, he reported that the shoulder pain and the headaches were over, so he had stopped taking the remedy. However, the previous day he had felt a slight (about 1%) pain in his back by his right shoulder where the earlier pain had been. The practitioner advised him to resume the remedy TDS until the pain was completely gone and then reduce to BD.
