A 45-year-old woman came to the practitioner to be treated for eczema that started in the right side of the neck and continued into the scalp. It was very itchy. Five months ago she had developed a lemon-size tumour on her forehead with several tiny boils or lumps growing on it. For the past 5 years she had black pigmentation on parts of her body. She was anaemic and very depressed, possibly because of the worry, discomfort and embarrassment due to her appearance. She had taken antibiotics and other allopathic treatment as well as Ayurvedic treatment but without any success. The practitioner gave her:
CC2.3 Tumours & Growths + CC3.1 Heart tonic + CC12.1 Immunity + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC21.2 Skin infections + CC21.3 Skin allergy + CC21.6 Eczema …TDS for a month.
The patient returned after 20 days and reported the lumps on the tumour had disappeared and she was feeling more cheerful. Two months later, the size of the tumour had reduced by 50% and the eczema by 20%. Treatment was continued. After a further three months only tiny scales were now visible and her depression was a thing of the past. Treatment continued for a further 2 months after which the patient reported complete recovery, except for the black pigmentation, which did not improve.
