A patient came with complaint of a large swelling in his head for 16 years. He was referred by his friend who advised him to take treatment. I surgeon had advised an operation. His hair fell out in that area of his head so the swelling was visible. He said his eye was very hot and burning. Laughingly he told me that everyone asks what the swelling is.

The mental state of the patient in every case is very important for a prescription. His present state exactly fit with Belladonna. The predominant persisting mental state is directly connected with the present illness. If we prescribe based on the mental state we can confirm the remedy by allowing the patient to sit 10-15 minutes. The patient will exhibit the changes in a short time which will confirm the remedial action. If the mental state is clear cut, whatever may be the pathology the remedy will clear the case.
