A 59-year-old woman from Azerbaijan came to the practitioners because she had a painful condition in the right shin called osteomyelitis – an inflammation of the bone and marrow, usually caused by infection. In this case the shin was a bluish-grey colour with necrotic stains in the centre. Along the inside of the bone there were 3 fistulas from which pus was oozing. Only a little blood was circulating in the bent toes and walking was very painful.
The history of this condition was as follows: she had been very unhappy in childhood as she was brought up in a children’s home where the treatment was brutal. When she was 10, she jumped from a height and severely damaged her right foot. She was operated upon to try and repair the damage, but this only caused the beginning of the dystrophy (a wasting away of the muscles in the shin). The diagnosis given for this condition by the allopathic doctors was poliomyelitis. When she was 30, she underwent surgery and other allopathic treatment, in an endeavour to correct her ongoing painful shinbone, but without success. The diagnosis now was osteomyelitis. Five years before the practitioners saw her, the condition had worsened and her doctor suggested the shin be amputated.
The practitioners gave her:
#1. CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC18.1 Brain disabilities…TDS
#2. CC20.6 Osteoporosis…6TD
After a week of taking the combos, she was able to walk without any pain but the toes were still painful. She was told to replace #2 with the following 2 remedies:
#3. CC20.3 Arthritis + CC20.4 Muscles & Supportive tissue + CC20.6 Osteoporosis…TDS
#4. CC21.11 Wounds & Abrasions…TDS (made in oil to be applied on the oozing fistulas)
Three weeks later, the colour of the foot returned to normal. A little pus was still oozing from the fistulas, so the practitioner gave:
#5. Nosode of pus from fistulas…6TD
Two months later, the colour of the shin had also become normal, two of the fistulas were now healed and the last one was only producing a small amount of colourless liquid instead of pus. The practitioners discontinued #1 but gave her a further supply of #3 & #5.
At this time the patient left the ashram very happy with the present result of the treatment, which was a transformation after so many years of suffering.
