A 70-year-old lady was suffering from persistent severe dry cough for the past two years. She was being repeatedly treated with antibiotics which provided temporary relief only. Seven years ago, suddenly she felt dizzy and it was found that her blood sugar was very high. So the doctor immediately put her on insulin. She had a history of high blood pressure and high cholesterol for more than fifteen years but both were well manged with allopathic medications.
Among all her health issues, the patient was quite concerned about her diabetes. She had a healthy diet and would never overeat. Ever since her diagnosis, powdered neem (margosa) leaves, well known for their medicinal properties, had been a part of her diet. In due course, she also started regular cardio workouts and yoga. She was taking insulin injections, 40 units in the morning and 20 at night. In addition, she orally took Metformin 500mg and Gliclazide 80mg, both BD. Despite all her efforts and the medications, her blood sugar remained high at 8-9mmol/L (6mmol/L or below is normal).
She felt much stressed with the daily use of lancet and injection needle as she found this painful. Although she wanted treatment for diabetes but because she was finding it too difficult to cope with her constant cough, she first sought treatment for this condition.
On 13 May 2014, the following combo was given:
For chronic cough:
#1. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC19.1 Chest tonic + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.6 Cough chronic + CC19.7 Throat chronic…QDS
After two months on 17 July, she had 50% relief from cough. So the dosage of #1 was reduced to TDS and the practitioner also gave:
#2. CC4.2 Liver & Gallbladder tonic + CC6.3 Diabetes + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC13.1 Kidney & Bladder tonic + CC13.3 Incontinence + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic...QDS
In another three weeks, she was 95% relieved of the cough and the dosage of #1 was reduced to BD. Having experienced such a huge improvement in her cough, she developed strong faith in the power of vibrionics and continued #2 diligently, fully believing that her blood sugar will eventually come down. At the end of March 2015, the doctor observed that her sugar level was normal; so the morning insulin dose was stopped. In another two weeks’ time on 16 April 15, the evening dose was also stopped. She was now completely off insulin injections but was advised to continue the oral medications. Both the pharmacist and her GP were in wonderment since they never had a patient who stopped insulin injections. Her family celebrated this milestone!
As of 15 November 2016, her blood sugar is normal and she has been off insulin for 19 months. She continues to take #1 BD and #2 TDS. She also continues allopathic oral medication for diabetes.
