Another exciting Hpathy quiz! Try to guess the remedy.

Shana, what are you doing?


Mom…you know that graduation is in three days, not to mention that I have to get ready for college!

All that is very nice, Shana; but, don’t you think you should be helping me with the June Quiz?!

But, my cap and gown! My vaccination exemption letter!

Shana, Alan is getting testy. And I need you to take a picture of breakfast.

What???? Oh geez….Most people eat their food. We take pictures of it!

I’m telling you Shana, people don’t know what to eat anymore! Now, here we have a very nice example of what to have for breakfast: Whole wheat pancakes with farmer’s market strawberries on the side. Oh, Shana, take a picture of the pancake mix too.

Do I have to?

Yes!

Well, fine!

Fine!

S’all right?

S’all right!


Now can we get on with our quiz? Who is the patient today?

Hmm… I have to come up with a fictitious name….

How about “Mount Rushmore”?

Good one, Shana! No one’s ever used that before! In fact, monuments have been overlooked as a source of fictitious names for entirely too long! OK, so little “Mount Rushmore” is 4 years old. He has developed a cough after the weather changed from warm to cold. His father (Mount Rushmore, Sr.) says the following:

My son developed dry cough on Wednesday night. And by Thursday night it became a lot of dry cough with slight cold (blocked nose). Yesterday the cough increased and the cold also yielded some (very little) thin, transparent nasal discharge. I gave “Causticum” yesterday (single dose). But the cough has increased a lot (I mean a lot) when he woke up this morning. He is constantly having dry cough. His cold is also producing some thick (may be slightly white) nasal discharge. Just checked and he has some fever now (99.6 degrees)

There was a change in weather. It was very hot one week and then it became cloudy and cold. He usually gets cold/cough with these types of changes in weather.

Hot shower/bath clears up his nose somewhat. Cough dry. Running nose, clear and watery.

I recommended __________________30C four times a day, in water, with five succussions before each dose.

Two days later:

His cold/cough is much better now. Thanks for recommending _______________________30C.

OK, that’s it! What is the remedy? Do you know? Write to me at [email protected] The answer will be in the July ezine. Bye for now, see you next time!
