A 60 yr old patient complained of persistent hot flashes since hysterectomy done 25 yrs ago.
No anxiety issues were there.
Gave folliculinum first day, she had no sweats but felt extreme heat. She was happy that sweating had atleast stopped. Then gave her lachesis the next day. After that all her hot flashes stopped within a day.
One patient had hot flashes for 2 yrs after menopause. She had mood swings and was better with yoga.
This pointed to sepia. Hence she was given folliculinum, sepia and lachesis. After a week the flashes had stopped and so had the mood swings.
