Creating Waves of Awareness

A 31 yr old, male patient, thin, fair complexion came with the chief complaint of anxiety disorder, tics on Rt. Side, eczema.

He has eczema on and off since age of 13 yrs, tics in various parts of  body since age of 13 yrs.


Initial Visit September 21th, 2011:

Doctor observation: Very objective, descriptive and organized in describing in health related problems in the case record. With lot of questions prior making the appointment.

{D: Doctor; P: Patient; Hg: Hand gesture}


D:  What is bothering you the most?

P: Anxiety, Obsessive at particular things like Stains on my body clothes

If I see people I will be conscious. Fear of as if I am dirty or unclean infront of people

Obsessed with lawn maintenance-The weeds taking over my lawn. Checking the weeds right away instead of waiting for two weeks as the weeds go away in two weeks.

I need to Control on things

Feels as if I have two parts in my head.

The Lower part is calm, relaxed and the upper part is all tangled, dense.

Extreme sensitive to other people. Over stimulated easily- too much light, noise

Takes lot of information I do consciously it is constantly where as normal thing is people do all this at subconscious level and not aware of it much.

D: Describe what you are saying little more?

P:  Hard to be with more than 2 or 3 people. My mind speeds up. I think faster and faster, obsessed

D: Talk more about that obsession

P: When I am anxious I look for perfection e.g lawn, desire to be perfect, clean, smooth, not looking old and all this happen when I am stressed. Need to be everything perfect.

At other times when I am relaxed I like imperfection.

Two different voices – one is intelligent and other is obsessed which is so strong, powerful that my lawn is going to be wrecked, my clothes are wrecked?

D:Wrecked means? 

P: Rough weeds, grass won’t go and In powerless, nothing can be fixed.

When I am stressed I feel my body is weak and withered, sickly, cheeks gone, I look I feel I have cancer, skin color is pale

When I am relaxed in mirror my body is strong, my body fills T-s hirt when I don’t I am bony and thin and my clothes are lying on scare crow- stick.

D: Tell more

P: Buying new clothes or shoes is difficult and confusing.

If it is a new shoes…I take them home and my first reaction is it is wrong one may be it is wrong size or rubs the toe and that bothers me a lot constantly for couple of days and I  occasionally returns it but I gradually convince myself that they are good choice.

I do meditation to convince myself.

Doubts even after meditation….all this goes up to one month and then I will be accustomed to it and fine.

Confusing my own perspective.

Few things in my life calm me down- meditation, having time to myself

D: What makes you happy?

P: Being in nature either alone and with few people, outside in thunderstorm in middle of woods, then while I am at home.

D: What happens when you are at home?

P: In home I feel all of the corners feel like poking me physically …as if physically leaning at sharp edges.

D: How do you feel when you are in city?

P: My stomach is tense when I drive in city.

Going to small towns – little tense

Suburbs – feels the same sensation as perfect lines, sharp corners.

Diaphragm is clenched (hand gesture) on rt side. Worse getting in to city. Better by decreasing the stimuli and to be in nature by alone and I will be in peace.

D: Tell about your tics?

P: Have had a tic in various parts of my body since around 13.  Has been in Right eye/face for past ten years; before that, it was sometimes in my neck, shoulder, stomach, hip, as well as a vocal tic in 5th grade. Worse in public. When I am alone I don’t feel like I am judged or watched.

All my tics are on right side (90%) My tics stop when I play music.

Listening to music-excited if it is loud, passionate,  I feel emotionally…but I am worse

I love playing and it gives me relaxation.

D: How is your sleep?

P: Not terrible, but not great.  I need to wear earplugs and sleep in a separate room to fall asleep (my wife and daughter sleep together in the bed, and while the bed is physically big enough for the three of us, I simply don’t relax or fall asleep).  Without earplugs, my mind simply won’t “turn off.”  When I am not extremely exhausted, I frequently wake up around one and a half hours before I need to, and simply can’t fall back asleep.  It is also often difficult for me to get up in the morning (this has always been the case).  When I am asleep, however, I tend to sleep deeply.

D: What dreams do you get?

P: Dream, I have to pick a dentist and in my dream I felt I was disappointed, frustrated. I think he told me that I needed a procedure that I didn’t trust. The previous dentist mentioned that I have 8 cavities but my aunt who is a dentist said I have none.

D: What was the experience in the dream?

P: Powerless, lack of control.

D: What else?

P: I love music. I am not a great performer, I became self conscious and make lot of mistakes.

The more the familiar I am the less the stress.

Worse by travelling as everything is new and different to handle.

Frequent checking…Turn of stove, lock the door.

The case was also solved using the Sensation Method:


Source considering Mineral Kingdom:

Image conscious


Straight perfect lines and edges and corners



He lacks control over things



Need to control on things "Cancer miasm", avoid or cover up is  "Sycotic miasm" and hurried & intense nature is "tubercular miasm". This patient is pointing to  all the above three miasms.


Mineral kingdom

Row 5

Creativity & performance

Need to explore the new, be creative, perform and be appreciated need to process the information & come to conclusion, to analyse, to improvise, to invent, to devise, to strategise, to plan ,to solve.

Row 2


Separation : he is an entity. “ Am I part of something or am I separate”

Carbon, oxygen, nitrogen : the separation develops further.

  “ I must break this attachment and be completely separate “


For this patient the theme was to do with performance, and to do with the nitrogen theme of separation. Hence Argentum Nitricum was prescribed on the following symptoms:


Indication of Argentum Nitricum :

It is compound of silver of argentum whose main theme is performance and nitrate whose main theme is “ feeling of sudden danger. The two things come together in Argentum nitricum , so main theme becomes “ Performance in sudden danger or crisis “


There Is feeling as if the person will be accepted only if he can perform at the time of crisis. There is feeling of being neglected and despised if he does not perform at the time of crisis. They are trouble shooters of the highest degree and see their role as that, feeling very much neglected and isolated and feeling of failure if they cant perform in crisis.


Situational materia medica is patient has to struggle and nobody is going to help him, he is trying but not succeeding.


This situation arose from being trapped alone in some circumstances and trying desperately to find a way out.. but these fears are due to tremendous sense of fault within which he is trying to cover it.


It is important for him to keep control in this situation and find his own way out of the problem. Fear of loosing control. Fear of high places, fear of narrow places.


Fear of failure.

Fear of falling.


Patient tries to get out of the trap impulsively. He feels there is no way out. Another situation is at the stage. The patients are anxious to go on stage. But when persuaded, they feel isolated and trapped.


Argentum has lot to do with suspense. They like challenging jobs in order to overcome the fear.


When they feel trapped they almost do suicidal, impulsive things.

Rubrics :

Ailments from anticipation

Delusion, corners of house projecting so that he fears he will run against them while walking in the street.

Del, deserted, isolated

Fear of failure

Fear falling of

Fear narrow places .

High places agg

Time passes to slowly.
