On April 16, 2014, a 24-year-old woman presented with multiple health problems. She looked weak and pale. She had been experiencing acute pain in abdomen and continuous vomiting. Her doctors suspected intestinal obstruction and likely Koch’s Abdomen (abdominal tuberculosis), and had ordered a laparoscopy in 8 days’ time. She had been hospitalized for the same symptoms the previous year, July 2013, but the problem was long-standing as she had been having pain in the abdomen at regular intervals followed by vomiting since the age of 12, after a serious lung disease. In addition, she complained of general weakness, job related stress and mouth ulcers, ongoing for 1 month, and also a vaginal discharge, ongoing for 2 years.
The practitioner gave her:
For pre-surgery and stress:
#1. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic…TDS for 3 days
For mouth ulcers:
#2. CC11.5 Mouth infections…QDS for 3 days
For vaginal discharge:
#3. CC8.5 Vagina & Cervix…QDS for 3 days
After completing this course of treatment, on day 4, the patient reported 50% reduction in stress, 25% reduction in the mouth ulcers, and 10% reduction in the vaginal discharge. The treatment was continued, and further progress was seen.
On day 10, the patients said her stress was 100% gone, the mouth ulcers were 75% reduced, and the vaginal discharge was 20% reduced.
As previously scheduled, the patient underwent surgical procedure (Laparoscopic Adhesiolysis) to remove scar tissue from the abdomen. On May 3 the patient discontinued hospital treatment. At this point, she had been taking Vibrionics for 18 days. She was feeling weak but spirited. She had not been getting any further improvement in the mouth ulcers and vaginal discharge since day 10.
On May 4 the practitioner changed her treatment to:
For post-surgery and mouth ulcers:
#4. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC11.5 Mouth infections…TDS for 1 week
For vaginal discharge and general weakness:
#5. CC8.5 Vagina & Cervix + CC12.1 Adult tonic …TDS for 1 week
After this adjustment, improvements resumed. At the end of 1 week’s treatment, the mouth ulcers were 75% reduced, and the vaginal discharge was 25% reduced. After 2 weeks , the ulcers were 90% gone and the discharge was 50% gone. After 3 weeks (May 25), the ulcers were completely healed and the vaginal discharge was 75% reduced.
Since the mouth ulcers were now healed, from this point forward, the dosage was gradually stepped down over a period of 2 weeks (#4…BD for 1st week, then OD for 2nd week) and then discontinued.
However, treatment for the vaginal discharge continued. Further improvements were seen as follows: after weeks 4 &5, 90% reduced; after week 6, 95% reduced; and after week 7, 100% gone( June 22). After the discharge had stopped, treatment was tapered off very slowly over a period of 3 weeks (#5…BD for 1st week, OD for 2nd week, then 3TW for 3rd week) before being discontinued. By the end of June, the patient had gained weight and began to look healthy, radiant and cheerful.
The patient’s health problems were still not over. While the above problems were being treated, another was discovered. Following a breast biopsy on 25 May, the patient received a diagnosis of fibroadenoma without granulomas, a benign breast disease. The patient was given:
#6. CC2.3 Tumours & Growths…QDS for 2 weeks
Treatment was continued for a further 2 weeks while the situation was monitored. The patient remained asymptomatic. After a total of 5 weeks' treatment, the dosage was gradually reduced to a maintenance level as follows: #6...BD for 2 weeks, then 3TW for 2 weeks, then OW indefinitely beginning July 27, 2014.
