Creating Waves of Awareness

The case I am going to relate here is a hopeless case in which I failed to do some fine work because (1) the patient did not take the medicines seriously regularly I prescribed. (2) Perhaps I could not prescribe the most indicated medicine, so that the patient could not gain full confidence in homoeopathy; though he took the treatment I prescribed but half heartedly.

The patient developed a cancerous sinus on his nose in 1994 from which sanious matter used to exude and crust used to form on it. The cancer gradually started eating the bone of the nose around it and thus started spreading in circumference and depth; when the spreading cancer had eaten about half of the nose (bone and flesh). The couple decided for surgery, and they sought help in this respect at Post Graduate Institute of Medicine at Chandigarh. The carious part was removed surgically in mid 2004 and the nose was formed taking skin from his forehead.

The cancer regressed again in 2005. The patient again visited the Institute where Biopsy was done on 14th September 2005, the Report says:

“Section shows an ulcerated stratified squamous lining epithelium. Underneath, a tumor is seen, the cells which are arranged in nests, which show vague peripheral pallisading pattern. The cells are relatively monomorphic with oval nucleus, fine chromatin and scanty cytoplasm.

Features are those of a basal cell carcinoma. The tumor reaches one lateral resection margin and deep resection margin.

Diagnosis: Nose – Basal cell carcinoma.”

After the surgery the wound on forehead healed gradually and the newly formed nose remained well for a few months. But after a few months the excoriation again started relapsing, first the nostril got blocked with crust and scabs and then the excoriation started spreading on out side of the nostril. His wife asked me if I could do some thing. I gave some medicines but the ulceration and necrosis continued to eat and spread in to the palate and the upper jaw with offensive stench. Then a stage came when the patient started getting inflammatory swelling in upper jaw and there formed thick white worms in the inflammation. This all was very painful and distressing for the patient and worrisome to his wife. The Government hospital refused to admit him. So he was admitted in a private hospital who claims to treat and cure cancer cases. There he was given courses of Antibiotics and other medicines and application of some herbal paste. The conditions in the hospital were miserable and the costs exorbitant.

So the wife of the patient brought him back home and again requested me to do some thing for him. In June 2009 after lot of thinking I suggested her to apply the paste of the leaves of Basil or Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum) and Neem (Azadiracta Indica) externally on the wound; and for internal use I started giving him Ocimum sanctum 30 t. d. s. Later I started giving occasionally a dose of Syphillinum 200.

This formula worked.

Though the necrosis of the upper jaw has not stopped totally but the formula worked (1) the pace of necrosis slowed down. (2) No worms formed in the wounds again in more than fourteen months. Although the patient feels pain on and off some times quite severe. In such circumstances he takes some pain killers to alleviate the pain.

Ocimum sanctum (tulasi) SYN. Vishnupriya, Tulasi, First Prover : Dr. Mure Divya, Bharati, Krishna-mul, N.O.: Labiatae. Kala Tulasi, Shiva Tulasi, Holy Basil.


Asthma; catarrh; cold; cough; fever: Dr. Mure reports specific for the worm affections.

In Hindu culture the Tulsi has been portrayed as having wonderful healing properties. It has been used for septic conditions of various kinds in folk medicines. Therefore I thought to give a try in the above case. And it has helped as expected. No worms formed in the past fifteen months, i. e. from June 2009 to this day September 24, 2010.

CARROLL DUNHAM, M.D. 1865 says:

While the materia medica, in the books, is a simple record of observed facts, in the mind of the practitioner it becomes a subject of reflection, of comparison and of hypothetical reasoning, which will be more or less just and valuable according to the measure of the practitioner’s natural ability and to his intellectual culture. For, as has been already said, "The significance of a fact is measured by the capacity of the observer."

Some of the sensations and symptoms of Syphilinum:

· As if a worm in tooth.

· As if bones were sawed.

· As if bitten by bugs.

  • Syph. can be used like any remedy against the symptoms of the provings, or such as are similar to symptoms common to the disease or against the symptoms like the numerous verified clinical symptoms. Many symptoms are worse at night in bed, many come on in the evening and last till morning. (Kent).
  • Caries. Cancer. (of nose).
  • ULCERS, phagedenic.

Learn more about Holy Basil

The Ocimum sactum plant, a member of the mint (Labiatae) family, is native to tropical Asia. It has been cultivated in India for more than 3,000 years and has since been dispersed throughout most tropical parts of the world. [5,6]

Also known as “Tulsi” or “The Incomparable One”, holy basil is one of the most sacred plants in India. In Hindu mythology, Tulsi symbolizes the goddess Lakshmi, the wife of Vishnu, who is one of the religion's most important deities. The herb has been celebrated for centuries and is still highly prized today because of its association with positive mood and increased awareness. 6 In addition to its religious significance, holy basil has great health implications.

It has been used in several ancient systems of medicine including Ayurveda, Greek, Roman, and Siddha for thousands of years. Central to its traditional uses, holy basil is said to enhance the mind, body, and spirit. [5,6]

How Does It Work? Holy basil leaves are a natural source of many important antioxidant compounds that provide a wide variety of health benefits. Most notably, eugenol, caryophyllene, and triterpenoic acids, such as ursolic and oleanolic acid. [5,6]

Eugenol and caryophyllene are aromatic compounds, so named because of their pleasing fragrance or “aroma”. These compounds, which are present in many plants, are frequently utilized in essential oils because their fragrant scent is believed to elevate both mood and spirit. In fact, holy basil, which possesses adaptogenic properties, has long been associated with improved mental clarity and mood. Adaptogenic herbs are not mood altering, but rather, they help the body maintain healthy functioning during times of stress. [5,7]

Traditional Indian medicine has frequently utilized holy basil for just such an effect, and now modern science is also examining this relationship. In a scientific study, an herbal preparation, which combines holy basil along with three other Ayurvedic herbs, was shown to improve the body's ability to adapt to stress. The combination exhibited both preventative and restorative effects to stressful stimuli. [8,9]

When isolated and examined individually, holy basil was shown to significantly contribute to these effects. Several studies have shown that certain alcohol extractions of holy basil support a healthy response to stress. Administration of the alcohol extract significantly reduced the corticosterone level, indicating the supportive potential of the plant. [10-12]

In addition, the key component eugenol, which must be obtained through other extraction methods, has been shown to possess similar effects on external stressors, though it is theorized that these components work in unique ways. [13] Therefore, it is theorized that a combination of standardized holy basil extracts will provide the greatest benefits.

Relieve Anxiety and Stress Naturally

Ocimum sanctum L. (Labiatae), a plant with various medicinal properties, has been investigated against human fibrosarcoma cells (HFS cells) in culture. Treatment with an ethanolic extract of Ocimum sanctum induced cytotoxicity at 50 µg/ml and above. Morphologically the cells showed shrunken cytoplasm and condensed nuclei. The DNA was found to be fragmented on observation in agarose gel electrophoresis. Biochemically the extract-treated HFS cells showed depleted intracellular glutathione and increased levels of lipid peroxidation products. Administration of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Ocimum sanctum to mice bearing Sarcoma-180 solid tumors mediated a significant reduction in tumor volume and an increase in lifespan. These observations clearly indicate Ocimum sanctum extracts possess anticancer activity.
