A 28-year-old lady contacted the practitioner on 20 February 2014 for treatment of her obesity. Her height is 168cm/5ft 5in, weight was 88kg/194lb and Body Mass Index (BMI) 31.6. She had also been having irregular periods over the past one year. She had no other health problem and was not on any medication. Since excessive body weight can cause menstrual problems, the practitioner, an experienced allopathic doctor, decided to treat her for obesity.
#1. CC6.2 Hypothyroid + CC15.4 Eating disorders...TDS
By the end of three weeks she had lost 4.5kg/10lb, but she was feeling weak and tired. Hence the combo was changed to the following:
For weakness and overweight:
#2. CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + #1...TDS
During the next four weeks she improved steadily and became active and more energetic. By 3 July 2014 she had lost 7kg/15.4lb but her periods were still irregular. So she was given an additional remedy.
For irregular periods:
#3. CC8.8 Menses irregular...TDS
The patient had been married for two years and talked about her deep desire to have a baby. She had consulted a specialist and was told that one of her ovaries was smaller than normal. Her other reproductive organs were normal and her husband’s sperm count was also normal. She did not opt for any fertility treatment. The couple was treated for infertility.
For the wife:
#4. CC8.1 Female tonic...TDS
For the husband:
#5. CC14.1 Male tonic + CC14.3 Male infertility...TDS
On 1 October 2014 the patient telephoned the practitioner to share the good news that she was seven weeks pregnant. She now stopped taking all remedies. However, four weeks later she contacted the practitioner for the treatment of morning sickness. She was given:
For pregnancy and morning sickness:
#6. CC8.2 Pregnancy tonic + CC8.9 Morning sickness + CC12.1 Adult tonic...TDS
The pregnancy progressed smoothly and on 26 May 2015, the patient delivered a healthy baby girl. During the pregnancy her weight had dropped to 70kg/154lb (normal for her height). As of January 2016, her weight is 78kg/172lb and she is happy with it. She is maintaining that weight as she eats less and is on a low-carb diet. Her periods are now regular.
