Case Quizes

The Worst Quiz Ever!

Another exciting case, try and guess the remedy!

Mom!  Where are you, we’re late with the quiz again, Firuzi just sounded the “All ashore that’s going ashore!”

Are we on a cruise ship, unbeknownst to me?  Alright, alright, I’m coming, I’m coming!  I see you’re back to looking like your old self.  I’ll miss you as a member of the Peanuts Gang!

You can still see me as a Peanuts character on facebook.

Is that soooooo????  Well, what a relief!  Do you have any timely announcements to make on matters of cultural significance?


What?  No one died?  No one’s on tour?


Well great!  That’s just great!  What are we supposed to do, just start the quiz?

I guess so.

Well this is the worst quiz ever!  Fine, I’ll just start the quiz then!

Well fine!





So this is the case of a teenager with heel pain from playing basketball.

Well, you gotta hate it.

Here’s what his mother said:


Good Morning Elaine,

“Marvin” went to basketball practice last Wednesday. Afterwards he has been complaining about heel pain. I have given him a couple of doses of Arnica 30 CH, and massaged him with Traumeel cream. This morning he has a hard time walking and won’t be able to play basketball today. When I look at foot charts, it appears he is really sore on the Calcaneus bone, the outside of the left heel.

Any suggestions?

Try __________ 30C in water. Give one dose, wait an hour, let me know if you get any improvement. If there is slight improvement, give 3 times a day with 5 succussions before each dose; or, if it’s in a plastic cup, stir with a straw or plastic spoon before each dose.

If the pain gets worse, stop dosing, it could just be a temporary aggravation, meaning it’s probably the right remedy but too strong a potency or too much dosing.

Elaine, here’s my update. It’s less than an hour later and “Marvin” is better.

Wow! Isn’t homeopathy great?

Yes, he says he is getting better and better. He still had a bit of a pain this morning, so I gave him another dose.

You can continue giving the remedy 3 times a day until he is completely pain free, then you can stop.

“Marvin” is under the impression that _____________ works.

OK, just a word of warning: Don’t use the good glassware. The remedy will always be in that glass, you’ll never get rid of it. You can’t wash a remedy away with soap and water. Plus, you know you have to stir before each dose, right? But don’t use the good silverware either. Use a straw, etc.


OK everybody, what do you think? If you know the remedy, write to me at [email protected], the answer will be in next month’s ezine. Bye for now!
