A 27-year-old male visited the practitioner on 27 May 2015. For the past 2 years he had been suffering from back pain which became so severe over the last 6 months that his normal life was affected. A scan revealed kidney stones and he was put on the waiting list for lithotripsy (ultrasound procedure for breaking the stones). Apart from pain-killers, he took no other medication. He was getting indigestion and acidity for 2 years. He also had hair loss with dandruff for the last 5 months. He was concerned about his hair fall as bald patches on the scalp were noticeable. He tried anti-dandruff shampoo, ayurvedic oil and vitamin supplements but nothing helped. He was given:
For kidney stones and indigestion, acidity:
#1. CC4.10 Indigestion + CC13.5 Kidney stones + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic…TDS
For hair loss and dandruff:
#2. CC11.2 Hair tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC21.2 Skin infections …TDS
After one month, there was 50% improvement in back pain and 80% in acidity and indigestion but no change was noticed in hair loss. After two months, the patient reported 40% improvement in hair loss and dandruff.
After three months, back pain as well as acidity and indigestion had vanished. Furthermore during an echography on 30 Aug 2015, no kidney stones were detected. As the patient confirmed 100% improvement in these symptoms, dosage of #1 was reduced to OD which he continued for a month and then stopped on 1 Oct 2015. However, he continued #2 for another 3 months.
When the practitioner saw him on 30 December 2015 after seven months of starting the treatment, the patient was unrecognizable as his hair volume had increased tremendously. The dandruff had disappeared and hair fall had completely stopped. So the dosage of #2 was reduced to OD for a month and then stopped.
