A 62-years-old lady, Mrs. K.R.I. (PIN 17287) visited the clinic on 18th October 2011 with the complaints of fibroadenoma of breast and severe anxiety.
From the last 2 years, she had started experiencing severe excruciating pain in the left breast, and the pain would even radiate to her back. The pain would occur almost every day associated with heaviness in the left breast. On examination, there were no external lumps, but mammography showed benign calcification in both the breasts. This had made her very anxious, and her only worry was whether this lump will get cancerous in the future.
She was spending sleeplessness nights due to anxiety and worry.
She was suffering from other complaints of constant postnasal discharge and phlegm formation. She had persistent acidity. She would suffer from vomiting and constant gas formation. She had tried homeopathic treatment for it.
Her appetite was normal with a strong craving for spicy food. Her thirst was average. She was more tolerant to the cold. She was short-statured in appearance. There were no complaints with her bowels and urine.
From the last 10 years, she was menopausal.
She was a housewife, and her husband was retired from a news agency. Her son was staying in Bangalore, and her daughter was married and settled. She was a calm lady, but her complaints of pain and tenderness in the breast had made her very anxious and she would worry all the time about trifles. She shared a cordial attitude with her husband and would share her anxieties and worry about her son with her husband.
With all these case details, her case was analyzed by Dr. Shah, and she was prescribed Silicea 30 with some research-based medicines.
Within 3 months of the treatment on 23rd January 2012, she reported the improvement in her condition to be satisfactory. The pain and heaviness in the breast had reduced. As her pain had reduced, it helped in reducing her anxiety. She reported having acidity with the same frequency and constant post nasal discharge.
With further 5 months of the treatment on 5th March 2012, she reported that her pain was better by 25% and her heaviness in the chest had reduced. There was an improvement in her relief from acidity and the post nasal discharge, but she appeared to be more anxious this time. Her sleep was also not very refreshing. Along with the change in medicines, she was also counseled by Dr. Shah about anxiety management.
With the further 8 months of the treatment on 5th May 2012, there was a substantial improvement in the breast tenderness and pain. She said that now mentally she was calmer than earlier and her anxiety had reduced. Her fear of having cancer had also reduced. She appeared with a smile on her face.
She is still continuing the treatment, but homeopathic medicines have not just helped in giving her relief in her pain but have also reduced the unwanted fear of cancer from her mind.
This case highlights that homeopathy is highly effective in treating the anxiety and providing you a great relief from the anxiety issues in a short time.
