A 65-year-old woman, known to the practitioner for a long time, asked for help with insomnia. For over a year, she had been sleeping less than two hours a night. She looked upset, nervous and restless which was unusual for her as she leads a very healthy lifestyle; she did not have the will to live.
On 10 September 2019 she was given:
#1. CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic…TDS
#2. CC15.6 Sleep disorders…half an hour before bedtime
Before going to bed that night after taking 3 doses of #2 at 10 minutes interval, she slept for 8 hours. The second night she could not sleep at all. The third night, she fell asleep on the couch watching TV, without taking the remedy. After only two days of taking the remedy, her sleep schedule was back to normal!
On her next visit two weeks later she looked better, though still nervous. She could touch upon the subject of her stress but did not share its cause. The practitioner surmised that there was an improvement of about 60% in her mental state. She had not taken #2 after those two days but had slept well every night. She was advised to continue #1 and restart #2. After another month on 20 October, she felt 80 percent relief mentally, so #1 was reduced to BD. When they met again on 19 December 2019, she looked completely normal and was even able to talk about the cause of her earlier stress (family problem), so the dosage of #1 was brought down to OD. Her ‘will to live’ had returned, and so did her old ambitions, so much so that at the age of 65, she opened a new pharmacy. Both #1 and #2 were stopped on 1 March 2020. As of July 2020, she is perfectly fine.
