Creating Waves of Awareness
An old lady came to me for the treatment of knee pain with swelling. She was suffering from this problem since one month. She took allopathic medication for the same which gave her relief but due to the pain killer her stools became constipated and there was pain and bleeding from the rectum. She had earlier taken medicine from me for bleeding piles a year ago but didn’t continue the medication after few days.
Pt: The pain in the knee is really troubling me continuously and it is increasing day by day. Earlier I used to walk around the home and help my daughter-in-law for domestic works but now it is so much that I have to sit in place keeping my leg elevated or else the swelling starts increasing.
Though there was relief with allopathic medicines but my old piles problem which was cured by you a year back resurfaced because of the side-effect. My daughter-in-law told homoeopathic medicines work slowly. I also know that, but at least my piles problem will not be aggravated. After taking allopathic medicines also, there is no permanent cure. When the action of the pain killer is over, again the pain starts. Why to suffer from two diseases?
I feel because of the problem I am putting more efforts in my normal working so that at least I should do my share of work properly but because of the pain I am unable to continue it for longer period. I am not worried whether your medicine take long time or short time but there should be some relief so that because this pain makes me restless and day by day my energy level is going down.
In the above case the lady finished her complains in one go.
If you look into the case the main concern of the patient is
- The disease is continuously troubling her.
- She is unable to do her share of work at home.
- Because of the side effect of pain killer, she developed piles.
- Her energy level is going down.
- Need to get some rest so that her energy level is maintained and she can continue working.
- Because of the problem though she is putting an effort but there is no comparative gain.
When the patient feels that because of the disease there is a loss or damage she is experiencing in health/work or anything else that is DELUSIONS - injury - being injured; is
Throughout the case the patient is talking about her work, work and work only i.e. LOQUACITY - business; about.
She feels that the amount of energy she is putting in for her work is not being yielding result as per her satisfaction i.e. DELUSIONS - work - hard; is working.
She wants to take homoeopathic medicine knowing that it works slowly because there is no side-effect and at least there will be some permanent cure. This is BARGAINING.
A dose of Bryonia 30 was given to her after repertorising the above rubrics. She was cured from the pain and piles.
Whenever Bryonia feels he can’t pursue business, he will need rest. Because rest will recoup him and he can continue doing business.
Rest desire for
He needs complete rest, complete means there should not be any disturbance both from inside and outside. Hence he wants to lie down in the dark and doesn’t want to talk to.
DARKNESS - lie down in the dark and not be talked to, desire to
Hence Bryonia needs rest to continue his business.
