A 47-year-old Russian woman came to the practitioners with a cold. The symptoms included headache and a general feeling of ill health. These symptoms had been with her for many months. She was given:
CC9.2 Infections acute + CC9.3 Tropical diseases…TDS
Three days later, her cold was better but the headache and the other symptoms remained. After careful questioning, the patient volunteered the information that 18 months ago both she and her husband had been in a car accident. Although the car was destroyed, neither she nor her husband had been injured. Since the present symptoms had started then, the practitioners thought it was likely that she had unknowingly been traumatized by the event and was, even now, in a state of shock. They immediately gave her:
CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC18.1 Brain disabilities…OD
After about 3 minutes, the woman became unconscious but gradually regained consciousness in 10 minutes. She felt very weak but, with help of her husband, managed to return to her room where she rested. The next day she came to see the practitioners to say that she was completely well with no signs of the chronic cold and other symptoms that she had been suffering from since the accident 18 months ago.
