At the age of 7 years patient suffered from Hepatitis A (for which had taken allopathic treatment for longer duration). After her long illness patient’s concentration in her studies reduced and it was difficult for her to retain what she learned. She became quiet and cried for small things, shouted back in anger. She would get nervous from minor things, had no interest in daily chores. She would only think “Why am I suffering.”

The case is Syco-syphilitic as patient has unbearable pain during menses with PCOS. For cure to happen we need to observe Hering’s law.
In this case the disease got suppressed from Hepatitis A (liver embryological originates from endoderm layer) to fibromyalgia lumbar region (embryological origin connective tissue which is deeper than endoderm ) amenorrhoea ( mesodermal origin) PCOS (Neuroendocrinal origin).
Here we observe how disease was suppressed due to allopathic medicines from less important organ to more important organ. Now the cure has to be in the reverse order, that is from more important organ to less important organ according to Herings law.
After Kali brom 200 single dose during patient’s next cycle there was no unbearable pain (syphilitic symptom reduced) menses was regular, hair fall started and then loose stools (disease travelled from deeper layer to outer surface).
Lastly patient visited with psoric complaint of cold and coryza. Here we observe how disease travelled from more important organ to less important organ indicating cure.
Reason for selection for Kali bromatum:
Right sided +Patient was sad and melancholic throughout+ she has no interest in daily chores, she used think only about her disease.
