A 70-year-old man approached the practitioner for treatment of back pain, lack of stamina, and short-term memory loss, on 4 June 2015.
He believed his back pain was sciatica that started ten years earlier. Currently he experienced daily pain especially while bending slightly, tilting his head, lying down, or coughing and sneezing. Two months previous, his pain had become so severe that he could not get out of bed and stand up. However, at the time of his visit, he described his pain as bearable, typical of the level that he had experienced for the past two years. The back pain might have developed from poor posture while sitting for long periods of time in front of his computer for over 16 years.
The patient’s second concern was that he tired easily. Even mild exercise left him short of breath and exhausted. He thought this lack of stamina was due to incomplete healing from exposure to dust pollution carried by strong winds, to which he had been exposed while travelling by train in India in 2003. As a result of this exposure he developed a dry cough and chest pain, and was treated with antibiotics for a lung infection. He finally got relief from the condition by consuming dried monkfruit (luo han guo, a Chinese medicine) for a month.
His third concern was he had short-term memory loss dating back almost 30 years. He would think of doing something and the next moment, he would forget what he intended to do. He might remember what it was a few days later or not at all. His recall problems were occurring more frequently as he aged.
The practitioner gave the following remedies:
For back pain, exhaustion and memory loss:
#1. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC17.3 Brain & Memory tonic + CC18.5 Neuralgia + CC20.1 SMJ tonic + CC20.2 SMJ pain + CC20.3 Arthritis + CC20.4 Muscle & Supportive tissue + CC20.5 Spine...TDS in water
For lung function:
#2. CC19.1 Chest tonic + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic + CC19.4 Asthma attack...TDS
The patient reported substantial improvement during a follow-up ten days later. He said that when he awoke on 5 June, he felt hardly any pain. He estimated he had about 93% improvement in pain just after taking one dose of the remedy the previous day. Since then, he had been having only intermittent episodes of pain lasting a few minutes each time. He also felt his exhaustion was reduced by 75%.
During the follow-up, the patient also disclosed that he was suffering from dental symptoms which had been increasing. He had gum inflammation, tooth infection, swelling in the tongue area close to the infected tooth, and an inflamed upper jaw with a loose molar in it. He believed his problems originated from dental work decades earlier including a root canal in 1981. Following the root canal, he had more frequent gum and tooth infections. He was using garlic to control the persistent inflammation by keeping it pressed between the upper and lower teeth where the infection was present. Although this gave him temporary relief, the infection kept recurring. Presently, the molar in his inflamed upper jaw was so loose that he had to hold it while brushing. Because of the pain, he could brush only gently.
The patient said that five days after he started taking vibrionics, he decided to try remedy #1 for his dental problems too. Since he was taking #1 in water, he started holding some of the vibro water in his mouth in such a way that the water came in contact with the infected upper tooth as well as other inflamed parts of his mouth. The inflammation and pain improved by 95% in less than 25 minutes following this treatment. He kept repeating the treatment with the vibro water as the inflammation and pain kept recurring every 3 to 4 hours.
Out of curiosity, he also decided to do an experiment to test the pain-relieving properties of the vibro water. He first felt the pain in the loose tooth with his tongue. He then swished the vibro water around his mouth. After three minutes, he felt the tooth again with his tongue and he had absolutely no pain! By 11 June, the gum inflammation around the tooth had disappeared.
After hearing the patient’s report, the practitioner sent him the following remedy for dental issues and told him to continue using #1 in the meantime as he had been doing:
Tooth, gum, jaw and tongue infection:
#3. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC11.5 Mouth infections + CC11.6 Tooth infections + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC17.3 Brain & memory tonic + CC18.5 Neuralgia...QDS, and also for vibro water to be held in his mouth as needed
Two weeks later on 30 June, the patient reported that relief in the back pain was still at 93% but he did have substantial improvement in his memory – he now recalled forgotten thoughts in 1-2 minutes, rather than in days or never. His dental problems were also better. There were no signs of inflammation in the gums, the loose tooth was stabilizing and he was able to go off his liquid diet and chew food including nuts with no pain.
The same upward trend continued during whole of July. The back pain was unchanged but it was now persistent throughout the day rather than intermittent. As for the other symptoms, the memory showed further improvement to 95%. The patient recalled forgotten information in a few seconds as opposed to 1-2 minutes. The tooth infection, gum inflammation, and tongue inflammation were completely resolved. The loose tooth was largely stabilized (90%) and tooth pain was gone. He was also able to remain active without fatigue or shortness of breath, a 95% improvement.
The treatment during August yielded a slight improvement in the back pain. The patient felt he had some residual pain (3%) remaining at the deep-tissue level. However, his dental health continued to improve beyond his previously reported symptoms and his energy level was high.
During a final follow-up a month later on 25 September, the patient was now fully recovered from all dental and exhaustion problems. His memory lapses were 99% better. He still had some sporadic deep-tissue pain (3%) but the episodes were less frequent than a month before. In an effort to achieve 100% relief from the back pain, in the first week of October 2015, the dosage for #1 has been kept at TDS except that the 1st daily dose to consist of one dose every 10 min for 2 hours.
The patient’s comment:
I extend my utmost gratitude to Sai and all the beings in the universe that had direct or indirect contributions to Sai Vibrionics. Gratitude is endless thanking; it never ends.
