On 23 April 2015, a 64-year-old man, a retired electrical worker, came to see the practitioner accompanied by his wife and younger son. They supported him so he could walk and also provided his medical history as the patient was hard of hearing. For a long time, he had been suffering from pain and inflammation all over his body, irregular urination, very low food intake and severe apathy. He had been battling with these symptoms on and off for 20 years. The patient’s health had been profoundly affected by a history of traumatic injuries. He fell from an electric pole 20 years ago due to electric shock and badly fractured his right leg (a rod had to be inserted). He had an appendectomy 15 years ago, and had been paralysed from a brain haemorrhage 13 years ago. He had been having hearing problem for 35 years but was fitted with hearing aids in both years only 2 years previous. The patient also suffered from psychic attacks (nightmares, fits of depression, paranoia about black magic etc), of uncertain duration. He had been a good worker all his life but had suffered considerable stress in his workplace environment from unfair treatment. During the course of the one-hour meeting, the patient was agitated and talked continuously to himself, irrespective of whatever was being discussed about him. He could neither sit nor stand for more than a few minutes at a stretch because of the body pain. He came to the practitioner as a last resort since no prescription medicines including painkillers seemed to help. He kept pleading with folded hands for some relief.
The patient was given:
#1. CC3.6 Pulse irregular + CC3.7 Circulation + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + CC17.3 Brain & Memory tonic + CC18.5 Neuralgia + CC20.2 SMJ pain + CC20.4 Muscles & Supportive tissue…in water, every 10 minutes for 2 hours, then 6TD until improvement
After ten days (3 May 2015), his son reported that for the first 3 days of treatment his father kept saying, “See, this too is not going to help me,” but over the next 7 days there was a remarkable turnaround in his condition. At present, his pain and inflammation were almost gone, he was slowly returning to his former self and he also recovering his ability to sleep. He had started demanding his favourite food and was more aware of his surroundings. Above all he was happy.
After 15 days, he developed low BP (The family had not informed the practitioner about this tendency during the first meeting.). When this was reported, the patient’s remedy was changed to:
#2. CC3.2 Bleeding disorders + #1...QDS
After one month, there was considerable improvement in all the symptoms. The dosage was reduced to TDS for the next 15 days. After further improvement, his dosage was reduced to BD in July 2015. As of August 2015, he has completely recovered and is continuing #2...OD. As the patient improved during the course of vibro treatment, his doctor reduced the allopathic medications and now, he was completely off them.
