A 75-year-old female travelled about 400km to see the practitioner on 11 February 2018. She had been suffering from multiple issues for many years. She had dizziness and had fainted a few times. Her soles had a burning sensation and she would often spend an entire night sitting up. She had chronic pain in bones and joints, frequent cramps and back pain, coupled with intense itching all over her body! She also suffered on and off from gastric problems such as acidity, constipation and gas. Despite her many problems, she was a picture of composure with a smile.
The practitioner gave the following remedies:
#1. CC18.7 Vertigo…TDS
For gastric problems:
#2. CC4.4 Constipation + CC4.10 Indigestion…TDS
#3. CC21.3 Skin allergies…TDS
For cramps, burning sensation, joint pains and back pain:
#4. CC3.7 Circulation + CC20.3 Arthritis…TDS and
#5. CC20.4 Muscles & Supportive tissue + CC20.5 Spine…TDS. This was for later use when there was 50% improvement (since she lived a long way away).
The practitioner gave separate bottles as he wanted to monitor and adjust the remedy for each illness. He found that she always prayed and took the remedies with full compliance.
After a month, she reported more than 50% improvement on all fronts. Her daughter visited the practitioner to convey that her family members were astonished at the remarkable recovery. The patient started taking #5 also.
After another month, she became free of dizziness and all gastric problems. Skin itch and burning sensation in the soles had further substantial improvement. At the end of 3 months, she was cured of all ailments except that the knee and back pain was still bothering her a little. The dosage of #1 to #3 was tapered to OD. She is continuing #4 and #5…TDS with faith that she will be fully cured of the remaining pains. The patient’s daughter visits the practitioner every month for refills and has been reporting slow but steady improvement in her pains.
Editor’s note: Typically we don’t give more than 3 bottles at one time but it was OK in this case as the patient was highly motivated and disciplined to comply with the dosages.
