A 60-years-old patient, Mrs. N.S. (PIN 30651) visited Life Force on 16th December 2016 for getting her complaint of pain in the neck (cervical region) and tingling numbness in the right hand treated. Her pain would radiate to both the shoulders and, sometimes, to her right hand. She was suffering from these complaints since five months. Her complaints used to get aggravated by lifting heavy weights and at night. She felt better after having rest and massage. She was on the conventional treatment.
Besides this, she was suffering from hypertension, underactive thyroid, ear pain, gastritis, and piles. All these complaints were present from 3-4 years.
Her appetite was reduced. She preferred vegetarian food with a craving for spicy food. Her bowel habits were unsatisfactory. Her sleep was distributed, and she used to talk in the sleep.
She was a housewife. Her husband was a businessman. Also, her son was into family business of jewelry. She had good interpersonal relationships with all the family members.
She had no major illness in the past.
Her father was suffering from hypertension, and her brother had an underactive thyroid.
She was very sensitive and anxious by nature. She was shy and reserved. She had fear of doctors, hospitals, heights, water, and crossing the road. She used to think a lot.
Based on the above case history, Dr. Rajesh Shah prescribed her research-based homeopathic medicine.
When she visited us for the first follow-up on 30th Jan 2017, there was 25% improvement in her relief from the complaints. Pain in her cervical region and dizziness were reduced. Numbness still persisted.
On 10th April 2017, she reported over the phone that there was 80% improvement in her relief from the complaints. Her pain, numbness, and dizziness had reduced a lot. Heaviness in her head was also reduced.
Later, she gave her follow-up over the phone on 10th August 2017. There was 85% improvement in her relief from the complaints. Frequency and intensity of her pain had reduced. Her pain, numbness, and tingling sensation had also reduced.
She consulted on 13th December 2017 over the phone mentioning that there was 90% improvement in her condition. Her pain, numbness, and dizziness had reduced a lot. Heaviness in the head had also reduced.
This case illustrates that in conditions like cervical spondylitis the pathology that has developed cannot be reversed, but the pain can be controlled significantly with homeopathy so much so that the patient can lead a pain-free life
