A 47-year-old man came with a complaint of frequent bloody stools and abdominal pain. He fell ill with Crohn’s disease 23 years ago after a breakup and also the death of his best friend. He had to undergo two consecutive surgeries for a perianal fistula and then for a rupture in the small intestine. The doctor prescribed Salazopyrin (anti-inflammatory for bowel disease) which he took for 15 years and stopped it as this did not help. However, he continues to take enteral nutritional supplements as Crohn’s patients generally suffer from nutritional deficiencies.
On 23 December 2019 the practitioner gave him:
#1. CC4.6 Diarrhoea + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic…TDS
His condition improved quickly and just after two weeks there was an improvement of 50% in his symptoms. As there was no further improvement in the next one month, on 1 February 2020 the practitioner decided to enhance #1 to:
#2. CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC14.1 Male tonic + #1…TDS
Within a month, the improvement went up to 80%. Frequent bloody stools were replaced by one normal stool, the pain subsided and even his private life improved. So the dosage of #2 was reduced to OD. He likes to continue the supplements (cheaper than normal food) to maintain a balanced intake of nutrition. As of July 2020, he is taking the remedy at OD. If he happens to miss a dose, he starts to feel uncomfortable.
