An elderly man aged 76 sought the practitioner’s help to address his long-standing multiple chronic problems. In 1984 his son died in an accident. The pain of losing a grown up child was unbearable and his emotional state started affecting his body. A couple of years after the accident, he was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. He also had a family history of diabetes. His treatment began with oral medication (metformin) and ten years later, insulin injections were added. The insulin dose had to be gradually increased to meet the demands of his increasing blood sugar levels. For the past three years he had been taking 60 units of insulin per day. Even with the above treatment, his fasting blood sugar level was 140 and postprandial was 190 mg/dL.
He had burning pain in his soles due to peripheral neuropathy, a common complication of diabetes. He was on allopathic medication for the same for three years.
The patient also suffered from Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) for which two stents had been placed 6 years ago. He was also taking allopathic medications as a preventive. In addition, he regularly took blood pressure medication, so his BP was always normal.
Six months ago, he developed Parkinson’s-like symptoms, and had trembling tremors when resting. The very likely reason for his tremors was his persistent peripheral neuropathy. He had hand tremors that were severe in the palm and this constantly bothered him, even during sleep. Mild symptoms were experienced in the right leg and tongue. His speech was affected due to tongue tremors. Since the onset of this condition he had been on allopathic medications but these were not helping him.
He had partial hearing loss in both ears for four years. In the past he had been exposed to occupational noise hazards from mechanical machinery, one of the probable causes for his hearing condition. Another may be hereditary as his parents had suffered the same during their old age. He was not under any treatment for hearing loss.
He told the practitioner that all his health problems started with diabetes. As he felt that all the other ailments were bearable, the treatment was first directed towards diabetes.
The following combo was given on 11 December 2015:
#1. CC6.3 Diabetes + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic…TDS in water
He continued taking all the allopathic medicines along with vibrionics for two months. Based on daily monitoring of blood sugar, his fasting level was consistently below 110 mg/dL. So, the insulin dosage was reduced from 60 units to 30 units per day. His neuropathy symptoms improved by only 10%.
This marked improvement in his blood sugar was an encouraging sign to initiate treatment for trembling tremors, CAD and hearing loss.
On 20 February 2016, he was given:
#2. CC3.5 Arteriosclerosis + CC5.2 Deafness + CC18.4 Paralysis + CC18.6 Parkinson’s disease + #1…TDS in water
A significant alleviation of tremors was seen in two months. They reduced by 40% in tongue, 90% in hand and 100% in leg. Then he did not take the remedy for nearly two months. By June there was no sign of tremors in his hand, and the tremors in his tongue had come down by 75%. The patient had developed fear of walking since he once had a fall due to leg tremors. As the leg tremors were now gone, he wanted to tackle his fear and get back to his routine exercise walks. He was also keen on improving his memory. So, further remedies were added to suit his needs.
On 10 June he was given:
#3. CC3.4 Heart emergencies + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + CC17.3 Brain & Memory tonic + CC18.2 Alzheimer’s disease + #2…TDS in water
As of October 2016, he has had no relapse of any of his conditions. He regularly walks and his speech is now normal. His fasting and postprandial sugar levels are below 110 and 150 mg/dL respectively. He is able to hear well and is completely cured on that front. As a result of this healing of diabetes and all its complications, he is now off insulin injections and neuropathy and BP medications! He has been advised to continue to take #3 over a long period.
The patient is currently doing even sirshasana (headstand)! His lifestyle has improved back to his original active days from an almost bedridden state. Due to severe hand tremors, previously someone had to hold his hand firmly to stop the involuntary movements. The residual mild tongue tremors are not noticeable and he can talk freely without any problem.
