On 15 March 2019, a 48-year-old male contacted the practitioner to ask if she could help. For the past six months, he had been suffering from severe anxiety attacks, tiredness, and mood swings. A blood test revealed a TSH level of 6.8 mIU/L (normal range 0.4 to 4.0) that could lead to hypothyroidism in the future. The doctor did not give any medicine but asked him to monitor the thyroid function every year.
A week later he visited the practitioner and told her that at times, he felt quite low and had a feeling of emptiness within. He was lacking in self-confidence and was unable to communicate with people as he used to before. On a material level, he has everything, a loving family, a successful business and a luxurious lifestyle. Now, he was feeling anxious, restless, worried and irritable, which affected his daily routine and his social and professional life. He had never experienced this feeling in his life, not even when his sister in her forties died three years ago, just the day before her wedding. He was stressed being unable to understand the drastic mental, emotional, and physical change affecting him now and was extremely concerned that his condition would jeopardize his business. The practitioner discovered that the patient still had some unresolved issues regarding his sister’s death; this possibly affected his mental state although he had not experienced any symptoms until six months ago. He was not taking any medicine apart from multivitamin tablets.
On 23 March 2019, he was given:
CC6.2 Hypothyroid + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders…TDS
After three days, the patient felt there was 60% improvement in his condition. After another two weeks on 10 April, while on a family holiday, he reported 90% improvement, saying that he felt the same as he did before the onset of his symptoms. A week later on 19 April, he was excited to report that he had completely recovered and was able to carry on with his normal professional and social life. On 17 May, the dosage was reduced to BD and then progressively tapered down to zero in mid-July. On 23 July 2019, his TSH level had dropped to 4 mIU/L which his doctor considered acceptable, suggestive of a restored thyroid function.
As of Sept 2020, the patient feels completely well in himself and is in good spirits.
