Mental conflict:  On further questioning she revealed that there were multiple deaths in her family of those younger than she. She felt much anger about why they were all dying. “This is my age. I should die. Why am I living? Rather I should die not them.”

 Rubrics:

Mental – death desires

General- restlessness physical.

General- leukemia

Stomach- vomiting eating after aggr

Extreme pain – Twitching.

Fever- Periodically.

Two remedies came through in repertorition:  Arsenicum and China

I decided to give Chinum sulph.   WHY?

The sphere of action of China is more on blood and there is history of fever.  Also, arsenic is somewhat about fear and company desire of.  In this case she has anger more with no desire for company. Also pt has marked periodicity.

    Symptoms changes revarse orders of appearance not came yet. So we have to wait
    Bore block removals has to be apply at suitable/ adymtomatic time as typhydinum / Cholamphenical
    Morbillinum / Sulph
    Etc

    The toral conditions may be a iatrogenic disease

  • An excellent example of the power of homeopathy in very serious chronic ailments. Nice work.
