A case of assumed appendicicitis

I just remember a case of a child 12 yrs old who visited the clinic with the complaint of pain in right inguinal region, off and on ,ranging from mild to severe.from 6 months.
He was under allopathic treatment and was diagnosed to be suffering from appendicitis as he had tenderness arond Mcburney’s point although the ultra sound of abdomen was not showing it .Under the medication pain subsided but later it returned again
He was advised to have an ultra sound once again,as the guardians belonged to a low income group they preferred to go with homoeopathy and visited the govt hospital where I was posted.
The pain symptoms of the boy were like this
Whenever the Pain appears it comes suddenly , sensitive to touch,and makes the movement almost impossible, backward bending gives small relief
Always accompanied with nausea but no vomiting ,lower abdomen bloated
belching gives small relief ,constipated.
Lycopodium was the first medicine that struck the mind for the symptoms
Right sided ,lower abdomen,bloated,relieved by belching and constipation
But first of all  I  gave Belladona 200 in 3 repeated doses just to subside the signs of inflammation  and tenderness
And advised them to revisit when the pain comes again , they returned after 15 days just to inform that the pain appeared once with little intensity
Belladona 1M in 2 devided doses was given along with one dose of Lycopodium 1M to be taken if the pain does not appear for a month
They did so ,it is 6 months now ,They visited twice in between for follow up.
No pain and tenderness reported if this is not a cure by Homoeopathy then what is it?
I must inform that in some cases inflamed Appendix does not appear in the ultrasound reports depending on its position and the lower income group can not afford frequent tests .Surgery of course is the solution at last. But it is the last option  ,why not give a try to Homoeopathy first and believe me in the hands of an experienced Homoeopath you won’t have to return for surgery.

A case of sciatica treated in 2015

One of my relatives,Mr.KC Tiwari, had been treated for severe pain in his right leg with numbness years before, by allopathy along with traction and physiotherapy.
One day in mid of 2015 he called me to consult as the pain was there again ,not the same way but now pain was in right leg ,starting from calves and going upwards as soon as he started walking. and after a while the pain made it impossible to walk .He had to stop ,take a rest ,then only he could go further .
he had consulted an allopath and started physiotherapy again but pain was in constant progress ,affecting his day to day life .He was advised for traction again .At this stage he consulted me .I advised him to take the homoeopathic medicine before going through the traction process as I find surgery and traction the last options to follow ,although it becomes neccessary sometimes.
The symptoms for prescription were
1–increasing pain with motion ,relieved by rest .
2–Stiffness in legs as if some thing tight would break
I prescribed Causticum 1M-single dose
Ruta-1M Once a week
and Bryonia 30 tds
and told him to inform after a week .A slight but unsatisfactory response was there but response was there so continuing Ruta 1M wk ly i raised the power of Bryonia to 1M. I told him to report every 15 days,which he thankfully did and which most of others forget conveniently(specially frds n relatives)–his pain was minimized and now he could walk easily but sometimes a sudden wave of pain comes and goes as he reported me when I met him after a month
Pain that comes suddenly and goes suddenly is a keynote symptom for Belladona which was given in 1M single dose along with Bryonia 10M single dose .Since then no reporting of pain i.e.from September15 till today .

A case of Herpes zoster

fb_img_1458835795347.jpgHerpes zoster is a viral infection of the posterior root ganglia of a few segments of the spinal or cranial nerves. The infection is characterised by a very painful vesicular eruption along the course of the infected nerves. The total duration of the disease from onset to complete recovery is about 5 weeks.

This patient suffering from herpes zoster came for consultation. At the time of consultation he was suffering with severe burning pain and fever. The skin of the affected area was so sensitive that he was not able to keep clothes over it. The burning and pain was > in open air and also by fanning and putting col water over it. Apis M 0/1 was prescribed to be taken 6 hrly. for a week. At the end of the week when he came for follow up he was much relieved. I continued the same medicine in same potency for another week, of course, this time the dose was reduced to twice daily. At the end of second week there was no complaint left, except the shallow scars showing the healing of the skin eruptions. This case illustrates the fast recovery which occurs after a correctly prescribed homoeopathic medicine. A correct homoeopathic medicine does not give relief of the sufferings alone, but it cuts short the entire period of sufferings from the disease.
