Clinical Cases

A Difficult Case of COVID-19

Written by Simone Fayeton

Dr. Simonne Marie Luc Fayeton shares a difficult case of Covid-19 in a woman of 63. The patient’s symptoms included intense fatigue, sleepy, no appetite or thirst, tremors, dizziness, visual disturbances, pain in the muscles of the back and limbs and delirium.

Florence was born in 1958. She lives near Versailles with her mother where she took care of her Parkinsonian father until his death in 2017. Since then, she has been taking care of her mother. She lived many years in Puy-en-Velay, where I cured her of migraines, smoking +++, anorexia, with Anhalonium. That’s how I knew her. She was still very short of breath in the ribs, but was always improved by Anhalonium.

Her sister was there for the week January 23-24, 2021. Florence had a cold, was very tired, slept in on January 23 and 24 until 11am. On Sunday Jan. 25, she took her usual simillimum (Anhalonium) which did not help her at all.

On January 26, in the evening, she does not want to eat because she “does not feel the taste”. She is confused, speaks incoherently, does not recognize her sister anymore.

On 27/01/21, her sister came back, called by her mother, because Florence slept all the time, and is not eating. Her sister calls me.

The patient has dizziness, pains everywhere, blurred vision. She speaks incoherently, looks at nothing as if she is elsewhere. She has no fever, which is not reassuring at all. She said: I am going to die.

I suspect the coronavirus and make her take Gelsemium 30CH to be repeated every hour, on the symptoms of Gelsemium: flu, low fever, (here she doesn’t even have the fever), intense fatigue, sleepy, neither appetite nor thirst, tremors, dizziness, visual disturbances, pain in the muscles of the back, and limbs, and in the articulations and delirium).  In addition, she was so afraid of everything when I met her.

Gelsemium took away the pain but did nothing better.

On 30/01/21, she breathes with difficulty.

She tells me by phone that she has the feeling that her bronchial tubes are tight.

Her eyes are red, crusty and her vision blurred.

I put her on oxygen, 3l/ min. She fell asleep and was delirious: “We have to cut off everyone’s head, they will be happy in heaven.”.  I suppose that she was very shocked by the death of Samuel Paty.

I search in my OPUS Radar software for “constriction of the bronchi” and I find among other remedies,  antimonium sulfuratum aureum: Respiration difficult, pressure in bronchi with constriction/amaurosis, and in Clarke: “Its more notable effects were produced on the eyes and chest”.  This is a great remedy for severe bronchitis with weakness and lack of reaction.

Her sister finds antimonium sulfuratum aureum in 15 CH at the pharmacy, which I make the patient take every time she breathes with difficulty.

The pharmacist also had Antimonium tartar 15 CH, and I tell the patient’s sister to get that also, in case the previous remedy is not sufficient.

The following night is difficult. In spite of the oxygen, she struggles for breath, but that is improved each time by taking Amtimonium sulf aureum.

On February 1st, as she is still confused, I have her take the nosode of COVID in 30CH at 11 am, after which her mind is clearer.  She resumed taking Antimonium sulfuratum aureum 15 CH each time she had breathing difficulties despite the oxygen.

On Feb 3rd, she needed only 1.5l of oxygen.

Her appetite returned. She told me after the meal that she had “a feast”.  Her eyesight has returned to normal. Her eyes are no longer red.

On 4/02/21, she gets up a little, and her sister tells me that her feet are swollen and very cold. I wonder if she has had myocardial damage. Around 3 pm, she has the sensation that her thorax and abdomen are in a straitjacket

I start the nosode again in 30CH. She fell asleep, and no longer had the sensation of straitjacket.  In the evening, her feet are less swollen and less cold.

On 05/02/21, her feet are no longer swollen and are warm when she wakes up. At noon they are a little swollen but warm.

She took ant-sulf-aureum 15 CH around 6 a.m. and again at 8:30 a.m.

Her appetite is good and she has been reading since yesterday, and also checked her emails.

She hasn’t coughed since 4 am.

She knows that it’s Saturday, and that tomorrow, Sunday, she’ll have an aperitif.

On 07/02/21, she had a good night, with ½ l oxygen .

She washed herself at the sink and washed her feet. She had the aperitif and enjoyed it. She walks around the room around her bed, goes to the bathroom alone, washes herself, washes her hair.

Appetite is still very good, and breathing is improving. She took ant-sulf-aureum only at 21:45.

On 08/02/21 she read and listened to music. Her concentration is improving.

She took the remedy when needed.

The 09/02/21 – She spent a very good night, without coughing or bronchial constriction, using oxygen at 0.5l.

At 21:00, due to constriction of the bronchi, she takes her remedy, and we raise the oxygen to 1l for one hour.

The 10/02/21 – Great night. No cough or constriction.  She goes in and out of the apartment.  Breathing much better, more free. Warm feet. She has not coughed all day.

Clear in her mind. She reads, listens to music. Didn’t sleep all day.

She made her bed. She did not cough last night or today.

On 12/02/21, she answers the phone herself:

“I am getting better every day. I make my bed by myself, I take my shower by myself. I answer all my emails from people who wished me a quick recovery. My energy is coming back every day.

My feet are no longer swollen, they are normally warm.  Every day I spend ½ hour without oxygen without any problem. I have more breathing capacity, I have more facility to speak”.

She took Ant-sulfur-aureum twice yesterday, at 1:30 pm and at 9:15 pm. She did not need it today.

On 14/02/21

She answers the phone herself. All is well. She only needs oxygen when she walks. She took ant-s-aureum last night to do her evening toilet.

27/02/21 – I read the news. All is well.

02/03/21 –  Her bronchial tubes are much better, even going up the stairs. She did 3 km yesterday, 2 this morning, going faster without noticing it.

She recovers more quickly after climbing the stairs. I wonder why such a complicated remedy was needed, mixing gold, sulfur, and antimony. Finally, there was a proving, and on the similarity, it worked.

I asked her why she was raving about the throat cutting at first (which she had forgotten).

“It’s not especially the fate of Samuel Paty. I’m terrified of current prophecies. Events like the slitting of Samuel Paty confirm them for me. A few days before my illness, there was a big storm. I was terrified because of the current prophecies. I don’t understand this God of love who all of a sudden smashes our faces in. It shocks me”.

I received an email from Françoise Sait-Didier who organized a proving of an African plant, Artemisia annua, a plant that Africans take as a tea, and which would explain the small number of Covid-19 patients in their country.

It is about gentleness, tenderness, and a dream in the opposite direction: “The storm is coming, the wind is rising, the sky is black. I’m trying to get everything inside, but it’s a big job. People don’t seem to care…”

I have my patient order this remedy in 30CH, as she had many symptoms of it, which I have her check off in the proving:

“Overwhelmed”, stunned, as if a blindfold was being tightened on my forehead. Dizziness.  Eyes “sanded up”. Wet right eye.  Vision a little blurred, less clear. Sensitive eyes (in the internal angle of the eye). Blurred vision during vertigo. Problems with the sense of smell. Cardboardy, pasty, pungent taste in mouth. Very intense sore throat. Tightness. Retro sternal pinching in connection with breathing.  Small intercostal or cardiac pinching.  Very clear respiratory oppression. Dyspnea when speaking. Edema of fingers, toes. Coldness of fingers and toes. Thirst for water increased.  Stomach swollen after eating. Like a very painful cut during stool.  Sudden chills . Weakness. Need for a lot of sleep. I am getting weaker and shakier.

On 05/03/21

Sensation of constriction of the bronchi yesterday afternoon.

Artemisia a 30H -> 0

Ant-sulf-aureum 30H-> 0, XM effective.

She remains easily breathless until April 7, 2021. When, not making any more progress with Ant Sulf-aureum, she again takes my advice of Artemisia annua 30CH each time she is breathless, either once a day, or every other day.

April 7 – The day after the first dose in the evening, she felt good and was breathing well.

“My bronchial tubes open up much better than before I was sick.  “I’m no longer obsessed with the prophecies. I used to have a hysterical fear of big rats ; I don’t anymore, I saw one 10 days ago in the garden and I reacted like a normal person. This morning I did some cleaning, of all the windows, and this afternoon I went for a long walk (about 5 km) with my sister.

April 21st, 2021 was my last phone call with her. She told me that she was no longer afraid of prophecies or rats (symbol of the plague, image of divine vengeance).
