A 22-year-old young lady was brought to the practitioner by her mother on 20 March 2015. Right from her childhood, she had an unusual complaint of not being able to eat rice (staple diet in South India) as she felt that rice was getting stuck in her throat. She survived on snacks three times a day.
The mother had consulted many doctors who confirmed that she did not have any obstruction in the food pipe in the throat. The cause of her problem appeared to be psychological. It was recommended that she should try eating small quantities of rice to begin with. Whenever she attempted to eat rice, she had to drink water with each morsel. But she could not eat more than a few morsels due to fear of choking. She had tried homoeopathic treatment which was unsuccessful.
She was given:
CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + CC15.4 Eating disorders…TDS
The following day, the practitioner was informed that after taking just one pill, she felt hungry and ate some rice. Ten days later, her intake of rice had increased by 25% and corresponding consumption of water had come down by 25%. Her fear of choking had gone completely. She was advised to continue the remedy for a complete cure.
This is indeed a unique case, a healing of trauma at the subconscious level. It was possibly caused by premature weaning from milk to rice at a very young age.
