Frankly speaking, I had no prior plan to write about treating patients suffering from chronic renal failure, until one day, one of my colleagues entered in the department where I was sitting, and asked me to reveal my experiences of the same. Perhaps he was treating a patient suffering from chronic renal failure. I have for a long time seriously thought about the fate of innumerable persons suffering from this ailment. People such as Lok Nayak Jay Prakash Narayan, former P.M. V.P. Flamboyant politician Mr. Amar Singh and thespian Shammi Kapoor suffered from chronic renal failure and were put on dialysis for a long time. Most of them have since died. I am keeping newspaper clippings : The Tribune, Chandigarh, dated 1st Sept 2005, depicting a photograph of a group of patients from Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttarakhand and Haryana, whose both kidneys failed as a result of taking allopathic medicines for ailments from indigestion to diabetes mellitus type-2 (NIDDM). They all were on dialysis and waiting for renal transplant in the near future, but presently sitting on a bench at PGIMER’s Hari Rai Sarai, Chandigarh with sullen faces.
I am now feeling compelled to give brief accounts of several patients who suffered from kidney failure and were treated with homoeopathic medicines.
Mr. X, a young married person around 30 years old. He was diagnosed as suffering from chronic renal failure by AIIMS New Delhi. He was advised to get a kidney transplant, but was not put on dialysis yet. His mother was ready to donate her kidney. Perhaps he would have got his kidney transplant from doctors at AIIMS, but his B.P. would not come down to normal, despite all their efforts. Therefore, the said process got delayed.
The patient was brought to me for homoeopathic treatment by his father-in-law in June 1988. He happened to be a resident of Chandigarh. While taking the case I found a history of suppression of some skin problem in childhood. In the family history I found: The father also had high blood pressure and the same history of a suppressed skin ailment. The patient was of normal health and nothing found abnormal in him except high B.P. On the basis of suppressed skin ailment, he was given the antipsoric medicine, Sulphur 10M, but without effect.
One day I talked about this patient to a colleague of mine, Dr. Alok Agnihotri, who suggested giving Mezerium. This was verified from another senior doctor, Dr. J.B.D.Castro. The literature praises Mezerium, when vital organs like the kidneys fail to perform normally owing to the suppression of a skin ailment in childhood or afterwards. Mezerium 30 BD was given to the patient for some days and the result was marvelous. The B.P. reached a normal level. The patient thereafter consulted me once or twice more and then stopped even contacting me by phone. Later on in 1992, I was visiting various schools of Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula in order to distribute booklets written on AIDS (A booklet on AIDS written and published by me). By chance I came in contact with the sister in law of the patient, who told me that the patient had not yet undergone kidney transplant.
Mr. Y, A young man of 22 years, who was doing B.A. He once went to a brothel and contracted STD: syphilis or gonorrhoea? Sometime after his sexual contact, the patient developed thorny condylomata all over the prepuce and glans penis. He consulted an allopath, who must have given him Penicillin injections along with other drugs and advised him to get an HIV test. He was found HIV positive by ELISA method, but Western blot never came positive at PGIMER Chandigarh.
The patient consulted me in February 1998. On the basis of his pathology, the patient was treated with antisyphilitic as well as antisycotic medicines one after another, since it was not clear whether the condylomata were syphilitic or gonorrheal in origin. Nitric acid and Thuja in high potencies were the medicines given to the patient. The result was disappearance of the condylomatous growth from the said part. He was declared HIV negative by a private pathology lab.
The patient being the only son of his parents, they now wanted him to marry. The girl was found in the area, where he was already known to be a case of HIV positive. Because of his being HIV negative status, the parents of the girl asked for an HIV negative report from a government hospital. The patient was found still an HIV positive case in the hospital report. After sometime, there reappeared thorny condylomatous growth on the penis of the patient. He was once again given antisycotic and antisyphilitic medicines in highest potencies. The result was disappearance of the thorny growth from the genitalia. But the patient was still found HIV positive despite having given the antipsoric drug Sulphur in CM. This thing really puzzled me.
On further inspection of the patient, it was found that a few tiny warty growths (verrucae) were present on the lower side of the abdomen. These in fact were overlooked by me in my earlier inspection. The growths were very small, flat and cauliflower like in appearance. Psorinum CM was given to the patient, resulting in reduction in the number of warty growths. However he was found HIV negative for one of the two HIVs.
Meanwhile the patient became a drug addict and started behaving a bit abnormal at times. He once visited with black goggles on his eyes, since his eyes were too red. I neither asked him, nor did he tell me about the cause of the redness of the eyes. In his next visit, the patient was accompanied by his cousin, who told me about his being a drug addict. She assured me that he would certainly withdraw from taking narcotic drugs. The patient had really withdrawn from taking drugs but meanwhile became a psychiatric patient. Someone from his family contacted me by phone and took my advice in this regard. I advised him to consult a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist at Jaipur treated him, but then he developed kidney failure.
