A lady in her late 30s reported with chief complain of Alopecia since last 7 yrs.

After covid, the patch started increasing in size. She had history of full body itching – itching till it bleeds. She also has hypothyroid, hairfall, dandruff. According to the history we started with lyco, sulphur, staphy, sepia and deworming was done.

Within 12 days slight blackness was seen as in pic 2. We further asked her to start gluten free diet. To which she responded well. We then started Wheatgerm med and Arnica, alumina and natmur along with vit D n polybion czs. She still had some itching on skin. We then started with petroleum for extremely dry skin and phytolacca as antifungal. And lastly gave her Immusil.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis

A 40 yr old female patient with rheumatoid arthritis since past 8 years came in to seek treatment. She was on methotrexate, corticosteroids, plaquenil and anti IL 6 blocker (actemra – Tocilizumab). 

The complaints included painful joints of fingers, insomnia and excess fatigue. The joints were painful in the morning and the pain would increase by evening after full days of work. She reported pain to be better on rest and also that she has increased thirst. She noted that her autoimmune condition had started after the stressor event. She has as autistic child and after this her symptoms had started.

She was put on homeopathy Ignatia to relieve stress. After a day she reported normal sleep, however, her joint pain did not improve with ignatia. She was then put on oral cytokines VIP and Trichostatin A, dose 20 drops BD. After about a week we were able to stop her steroids and methotrexate. After another 2 weeks we stopped actemra.

As the patient still had little pain after about a month, she was given homeopathy bryonia (modality of patient being better on rest); with just 3 days after the bryonia patient reported that all her pain were gone and now the patient was off plaquenil too. Bryonia regulates vasopressin.The hypervigilance behaviour required as a mother with an autistic child had triggered abnormal vasopressin oxytocin responses leading to autoimmune arthritis.

On side note her autistic child was given croc, a month before we started treatment of the mother. By then the child had started stringing words together and forming sentences. As the stressor also improved the mothers response to the treatment also improved.

Guillain-Barre syndrome

Guillain-Barre syndrome

A patient reported that they developed Guillain-Barre syndrome after a chest infection. The current symptoms which prompted the patient to seek treatment was difficulty in walking and numbness of hands.

Homeopathy conium 1m, dose 4_0_0 was given for 2 weeks which showed daily improvement in the reported symptoms. After 2 weeks the patient complained of cough. As it was suspected to be aggravation of the conium, it was stopped and we waited. Once cough subsided, the conium was restarted.

After another week of conium, improvements had slowed down. Oral cytokine interferon lambda was now added. With interferon lambda, the patient reported improvement in both the symptoms with no other aggravation. After continuing the conium and lambda for 2 months the patient reported that there are no symptoms left.
