On 21 October 2016, a 62-year-old lady visited the practitioner with a problem that began five months prior as a swelling coupled with excruciating pain in her left thumb. The swelling had extended to her entire hand. She then consulted a doctor, who cut a hole in her thumb and inserted cotton wool into it. She was not given any information on the diagnosis. Nevertheless, she had no relief from the swelling or the pain. She visited another doctor who after a blood test detected an infection in her blood. He performed a surgery where the thumb was cut open again to remove the cotton wool and pus drained out. She was also given pain killers. This procedure brought down the swelling and eased her pain. However, she lost the use of three fingers in her left hand. She had lost sensation in her fingers and could neither close them to make a fist nor hold anything.
Patient also had pain in her knees for several years due to arthritis and her doctor had suggested a knee replacement surgery.
She was given:
#1. CC3.7 Circulation + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC18.5 Neuralgia + CC20.3 Arthritis…TDS in water
In three days, she started to feel sensation in her fingers. Within two weeks, there was a 75% improvement and she was able to grip and hold things with her left hand. She was then given two separate vials as follows:
For the hand:
#2. CC3.7 Circulation + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC18.5 Neuralgia…TDS
For arthritis in the knees:
#3. CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC20.3 Arthritis…TDS
By 10 January 2017, she regained complete use of her left hand. The dosage of #2 was reduced to OD and the treatment was discontinued in the first week of May. As of July, there has been no relapse of any symptoms except a slight pain experienced in fingers when over-using her hand. To her delight, her knee pain has reduced by 50%. She continues to take #3 as she is hopeful of avoiding surgery.
