A 48-year-old woman was experiencing cold chills on the entire left side of her body for almost three years. It happened only during the winter months (Nov to Feb) throughout the day irrespective of whether she was indoors or outdoors. The temperatures usually drop to as low as two degrees during the winter season in her neighbourhood. The patient did not have any other acute or chronic health issues.
On consultation, her physician dismissed the condition as just her mental confusion and recommended taking multivitamins and doing regular exercises to improve her blood circulation. The patient, not being satisfied and still suffering with this condition, approached the practitioner for help on 7 Nov 2016. She mentioned that her 75-year-old aunt had suffered from similar symptoms and the doctors treated it as a case of vitamin deficiency. However, the aunt eventually became paralyzed. So, the patient had this fear that she might end up in a similar situation.
The following combo was given for one week:
CC3.1 Heart tonic + CC3.7 Circulation + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC18.1 Brain disabilities + CC18.4 Paralysis + CC18.5 Neuralgia...TDS
Meanwhile, the practitioner discussed the case with her senior. The senior practitioner felt the underlying cause might be due to clogging of the vascular system and also wanted to address any underlying shock that the patient might have been through.
So, when the patient came back after a week on 13 Nov 2016, the following combo was given.
NM25 Shock + SR548 Colocynthis + CC3.1 Heart tonic + CC3.2 Bleeding disorders + CC3.3 High Blood Pressure + CC3.4 Heart Emergencies + CC3.5 Arteriosclerosis + CC3.6 Pulse irregular + C3.7 Circulation + CC18.3 Epilepsy + CC18.4 Paralysis + CC18.5 Neuralgia...TDS
After three weeks, the patient reported 30% improvement. She now experienced localized chills only on certain parts of her left side like the shoulder or thighs. The patient continued to take the remedy and after five weeks, reported 70% improvement in her condition. She felt normal most of the time and experienced chills only when her body got exposed to the cold waves directly.
After two months on 16 Jan 2017, the patient reported 100% recovery. The dosage was the reduced to BD for a week and then OD for a month and then OW for four weeks after which the remedy was completely stopped. As of September 2017, the patient feels completely normal.
