A 63-year-old patient was suffering from psoriasis for 10 years and rheumatoid arthritis for the past 1 year. He had sores on his hands and pain in the joints. He had itching all over his body. He was taking allopathic medicine (methotrexate, an immunosuppressant) only for rheumatoid arthritis. He was given the following remedy in November 2015:
#1. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC12.4 Autoimmune diseases + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC20.3 Arthritis + CC21.10 Psoriasis…TDS
In one month, there was improvement in his condition but he had developed tinnitus in the right ear. He consulted an ENT specialist who conducted a hearing test which showed 70% hearing loss in his right ear. So, he was given the following additional remedy:
#2. CC5.2 Deafness + CC5.3 Meniere’s disease + CC18.5 Neuralgia…TDS
Within four months of taking #1 and #2 above, patient reported 100% relief from psoriasis and arthritis, and 40% improvement from tinnitus. No trace of arthritis was found in medical tests. Therefore his physician reduced the dose of methotrexatefrom 15mg to 5mg. The dosage of #1 was reduced to OD and #2 was continued at TDS.
After another 6 months, the patient completely recovered from tinnitus, so the dosage of #2 was also reduced to OD. When he got his ears tested in October 2016, tremendous improvement in his hearing was observed and tests showed only 20% hearing loss. Patient’s physician was surprised at the progress. Rheumatoid arthritis tests were still completely normal. Currently he continues to take #1 and #2 at OD.
