This is a palliation case involving a man who was under heavy medication for depression for the last 30 years. There was no possibility but to keep all his medication in place. Also, he is severely affected on the cardiovascular level as well.
In spite of this one can see how classical homeopathy can do a lot!Here’s the case verbatim. It is a supervision I did, and I received only the summary of previous consultations made by a Swiss colleague with whom I do regular supervision work.
Retired, his job was on trains
His actual therapy:
Lithium 660mg 1+1/2 die
Eutero 75mg one daily
Clopidogrel 75 mg one daily (PLAVIX- anticoagulant)
Transipeg forte (Salts for stools)
Horizontal diplopia his main problem at the moment, and his reason for consulting.
< looking down (shaving, walking down stairs)
Using horizontal press ons to apply on glasses
Husband to a lady with whom he has 5 children
He had a very heavy depression when the children were young, (at least 40 yrs ago)He has been on lithium since then
Diplopia could be a symptom of lithium over dosage?
Before the depression he saw a man whose clothes were on fire, and who died in the fire in spite of the ambulance. It was a real shock that made him very anxious especially about his family and relatives. Has anxiety was for his family, not so much for himself. He grew up in the mountains and as a chile was punished a lot.
He eats most everything but does not like seafood, because he is sorry for “these poor crevettes!” (shrimp).
He did not want to drive because is afraid of falling asleep. He is afraid also of
taking a plane.
Twice he had ischemic attacks and his right arm and face (in 2001) remained paralised. In 2004 his left arm and speech were affected. Since 2012 he’s had sleep apnea and has to use a mask at night.
He now has aortic stenosis and a severe aortic aneurism.
He’s experienced nose bleeds for a longtime
Stool: very constipated, hard and large movements
Running nose when eating
Not sweating much
Herpes labialis sometimes
Slight trembling of hands
He can have have fits of anger, which end after five minutes. He also tries to prevent arguments or quarreling.
Rx: Gelsemium Lm1
27.4.18 – Five drops daily from 17.10
Diplopia gone! Said he feels 80% better. Walking faster also.
His wife said two months ago that he is much more open in his mind, talking more to her, “He is the person I met when I was a young girl.”
He has an aortosclerosis that that became worse in the meantime
Had a new valvular implantation – TAVI (trans catheter aotic valve implantation) because aorta was very stenotic (one month after the remedy)
Besides this and in spite of some weakness he is much more vital than before.
Plan : Wait
Received more remedy and now he is taking Gelsemium LM5
Still very fine – no diplopia, good energy and mood confirmed by his wife (July 2018)
