Mr. RK a 38 years old man consulted me on 1 – 5 – 1999. He was working at Coimbatore. The company in which he was worked transferred him to it’s branch at USA with a promotion. But when he appeared for emigration clearance, he was declared unfit due to an HBsAg +ve blood result. His promotion was withheld and transfer cancelled due to Hepatitis – B.
He heard about the effectiveness of Homoeopathic treatment in Hepatitis – B through a medical magazine and he requested his doctor (An allopathic doctor) for discontinuing the treatment and try Homoeopathy. His doctor agreed and thus he came to me for treatment. He showed the blood results that he got from the laboratory at Coimbatore. The unfit report of the emigration people was being kept in his office.
When he entered the consulting room he had kicked at the weighing balance placed near the door. He expressed sorry and his wife laughed at him. (MIND – AWKWARD – strikes against things?) He told me that he had tried a lot of allopathic medicines and a number of ‘panaceas’ for curing Hepatitis – B, but they were ineffective to cure this disease. Finally he settled under the impression that it was an incurable disease. He said: ” Doctor I am fed up with all the medicines, and I had tried except Homoeopathy”. (MIND – DESPAIR – recovery, of). He told me that he had heard about me as a ‘specialist’ (?!) in treating Hepatitis – B cases and if I was able to cure him, he will bring a good number of patients to me. There are many patients suffering from Hepatitis – B and other incurable disease at Coimbatore. But I have to cure him then only he will refer such patients to me. (MIND – BARGAINING).
I interfered with his speech mid-way and asked him
” What are your complaints now?”.
” No complaints except that my physical built up beginning to lose its tone now a days. I am losing weight and my face become shrunken and muscles are reducing in its bulk.”
His wife interfered, and then told.
“No he is not losing weight; He was 68 Kgs earlier and keeping the same still. It is only a false belief that he is reducing in weight and losing the bulk of muscle etc.”
He responded immediately
“Though the weight is steady, still I am losing flesh and my muscles are shrunken”.
She told that he was the same for the past 10 years.
(MIND – DELUSIONS – emaciation, of)
He said that it was unbearable for him to frequently hear from his acquaints “what happened to you; you looks too lean and weak”. And the most unbearable thing was to hear the words of people who knew that he was suffering from Hepatitis – B. They may say, “it is a pity to see your misfortune” etc.
“I don’t like such words”, he said. (MIND – SYMPATHY from others – aversion to).
Whenever some body showered sympathy over him he became angry and then he will not talk to any body for some time. His wife said that he would not express his anger to any body but keep mum for long. If he was keeping mum, it was a sign of his anger. (MIND – ANGER – taciturnity; with).
“Ofcourse I kept mum when I become angry but this is not the only occasion I kept mum, I frequently thought about my misfortune, about the missed promotion and about the incurable disease I am put in“. (MIND – DWELLS – disappointments, on).
His wife said further:
“Another thing make him angry is—-” She paused and asked her husband “may I tell it?”.
“Oh yes”, he said.
“Spending money for domestic affairs is unbearable for him”.
“No, I am spending money than anything for celebrations travels and all”.
To this she replayed,
“Yes it is correct, he is extravagant enough for his friends, that is why I said that he get angry when I spend money for household affairs”.
He laughed and nodded agreeing to what his wife said. (MIND – AVARICE – generosity towards strangers, avarice as regards his family).
While tracing the source of infection he told me that there was a dental surgery for him some 4 months back. Causally I asked him whether there any hospitalization, Injections, Accidents, Falls, Etc; His wife said that minor accidents and falls is a regular occurrence in his life.
“Doctor did you observe that he strikes to some thing when he entered this room?”
He always strikes against dinning table and chairs in house. Sometimes it become major injuries and 2 times fractures had occurred to his toes, but he never go for injections and surgery.” (MIND – AWKWARD – strikes against things – Confirmed the rubric).
No other striking Physical generals were observed except a desire for spices and eggs that also was told after asking leading questions. So we avoided those physical generals for repertorisation.
But he told that his bowel was moving only once in 3 days. (RECTUM – INACTIVITY of).
Apart from the above observations and their corresponding rubrics we took one more rubric for the chronic carrier stage of Hepatitis – B, GENERALS – CHRONICITY.
MIND – AWKWARD – strikes against things
MIND – DESPAIR – recovery, of
MIND – BARGAINING
MIND – DELUSIONS – emaciation, of
MIND – SYMPATHY from others – aversion to
MIND – ANGER – taciturnity; with
MIND – DWELLS – disappointments, on
MIND – AVARICE – generosity towards strangers, avarice as regards his family
RECTUM – INACTIVITY of
GENERALS – CHRONICITY
The emerged remedy in Repertorisation was NAT MUR in VES (Vithulkas Expert System ) of RADAR and SULPHUR in combined analysis, NAT MUR was prescribe with confidence rating 125 points.
So, on 1/5/1999 I gave NAT MUR 10 M 1 dose, SL and BT for 15 days.
16/5/1999 – He reported with several complaints: feeling of uneasiness, headache after night watching, slight abdominal discomfort, constipation intensified, stools only once in 4 days, scanty stool & vague feeling of ill health. He had to go to Coimbatore for re-joining his job. So he wanted medicine for 40 days
SL 1XBD & BT 5 grain 1XBD was prescribed for 40 days
Later he contacted me over telephone and complained that he was suffering from intense constipation; body pain and severe head ache after every episode of irregular diet, after every exposure of the sun etc. He was asked to continue the medicine.
26/6/2001 – Reported: He was totally disappointed with the treatment. He had made a blood examination at Coimbature. Blood showed HBsAg +ve.. Total symptamatology remain worsened. He told me “if things are going like this I have to discontinue your treatment, I will leave you and take treatment from any other system of Medicine. So if it is curable in Homoeopathy, please give me that remedy, Other wise I will tell others that I am HBsAg +ve even after your treatment”.
So, I took one more rubric – MIND – COMPLAINING – threatening, and
I told him,
“OK, you may try other systems of medicine, we can stop the treatment”.
He confessed immediately.
“Sorry Doctor, because of my dejection and anger I told those words. I know there is no treatment in any other system of medicine except Homoeopathy, I want to continue your treatment”.
I took one more rubric, MIND – ANGER – alternating with – repentance; quick
Addition of the above rubrics did not change VES selection.
On 26/6/2001 I prescribed another single dose of NAT MUR 10 M because of aggravation of complaints and feeling of ill health.
SL & BT were also prescribed for 10 more days.
He reported on 6th July with general feeling of well-being; and amelioration for headache, his bowels were moving daily. He appeared very cheerful with full of confidence in his face regarding the cure of his disease.
He asked me
“Doctor can I go for another blood examination?”.
Because of the previous experience of positive blood result and his negative attitude towards me when he got the previous +ve result, I told him
” No you may go for a blood investigation in the next time ie. after one month”.
“OK”, He agreed.
SL & BT were prescribed for another month.
He contacted me over telephone on 21st July and told, “Doctor, I am HBsAg – ve now I will come to you tomorrow”
22nd July was a Sunday.
On 23rd July he reached my clinic & said
“Doctor, I went for a blood investigation because I got another chance for promotion and USA trip”.
He showed me the result and said
“Doctor I am grateful to your valuable help, now I become HBsAg negative and I am selected for the promotion and transfer to USA. I am ready to continue the medicine for any time under your advice.”.
I told him.
“Ok you may discontinue the medicine, there is no need of continue the medicine for months”.
He was regularly contacting me at least once in a month up to 2001 January. He sent me a greeting card in January 2001. The words in the greeting card was as follows –
“Though you are staying miles ago, you are always residing in my heart, in my mind & in my soul”.
