A 43-year-old female was diagnosed with hypothyroid 7 years ago when she was prescribed Thyroxin 100mg per day. After one year, she developed itching, dry skin and headache. At her routine check-up in March 2018, the TSH value was a little high at 7.82 (normal range is 0.13 - 6.33). She came to the practitioner on 3 Aug 2018 when she was given the following:
CC6.2 Hypothyroid + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic…TDS
After 10 days, the patient reported 20% improvement in itching, dry skin as well as headache. At the end of one month, although there was only 50% improvement in symptoms, the TSH value came down to 1.24, well within normal limits. Impressed by this, the patient decided by herself to reduce Thyroxin from 100mg to 50mg. At the same time the practitioner reduced the dosage of vibro remedy to BD and then later to OD on 1 October when on her doctor’s advice, the patient stopped taking Thyroxin.
On 28 Oct 2018, her TSH value had gone up to 5.04 but it was still within the normal range. The practitioner felt perhaps the remedy had been tapered down too soon and so advised the patient to take it at TDS for some more time.
