Report

18/3/14

Micro Albuminuria- 34.11

Fbs-285

Hb A1c- 11.48%

High sensitive reactive protein- 5.14

HDL- 30

LDL- 129

VLDL- 23

Initial Rx : Yoga, counselling and dietary changes

Reason: Aphorism 4:

“He is likewise a preserver of health if he knows the things that derange health and cause disease, and how to remove them from persons in health”.

My first intension was to remove any maintaining cause, to check whether the problem was due to dietary errors. I prescribed only dietary changes, yoga and exercise. Note: FBS is 285 with Albuminuria and also there is no history of diabetes in his family; if you are not sure that values can be brought down without medicines, please don’t take risk with these values.

Within three months, on 2/6/14

Micro albuminuria – 8.6

High sensitive CRP- 0.6

HbA1C-7.64%

FBS- 123 / FUS- Nil.

PPBS- 131 / PPUS-Nil

28/6/14 – Started fluctuating and reports showed raised levels again and weight came down to 63 so I concluded that the disease origin was not fully due to errors in diet and the time had come to intervene with homeopathy. As his body responded well with physical exercise and yoga, the vital force could easily respond to our medicine and make him healthy.

 

thuja occidentalis18/10/14 – Rx Thuja Occidentalis 200 single dose

Based on Aphorism 4,5 and 7

Aphorism 4- He is likewise a preserver of health if he knows the things that derange health and cause disease, and how to remove them from persons in health.

Aphorism 7- Now, as in a disease, from which no manifest exciting or maintain cause (Causa occasionalis) has to be removed, we can perceive nothing but the morbid symptoms, it must (attention being paid to the possibility of a miasm- Aphorism 5) be the symptoms alone by which the disease demands and points to the remedy suited to relieve it…

Basis for selection of remedy:

Cowardice

Perspiration – cold, sweat stool, during

Hot

Thirsty

Plant drug

 

His character seemed to be plant and I placed him in the plant category. The plant kingdom common characteristics are sensitivity, both mentally and physically, and they recover fast. They can have emotions of the animal group like suspiciousness and jealousy but in a milder form (Hyoscyamus, Stramonium etc). Good resistance to fight back or recover. Mentally more strong than physically.

Drugs of choice were Pulsatilla and Thuja, both being hot drugs. Thuja was thirsty, so I selected a drug based on mild disposition, plant character, cowardice, slow, soft spoken, hot and thirsty and which has action on diabetes.

26/11/14 – FBS-121, PPBS-143

29 /12 /14 – FBS-92, PPBS – 123

Perfectly normal within two months.   Last report   2/3/15

Comments

I believe nature has its own power to heal from the inner-self and we need to stimulate the deranged immunity to overcome disease with the least medicine and if possible without medicine, by removing the maintaining cause. So First we can try on the basis of Aphorism 4 , that is remove any maintaining cause then treat with homeopathic medicine that will act fast and restore health.
