Doctors are also human beings and they have their own personal life, we are no different. It so happened that one of our patient Mr.VB called up on our hand phone saying doctor “I want to see you” we said we are not in the town how can we help you? Mr.VB was in terrible pain and could barely speak. In a husky voice he said “I have unbearable pain in my throat, fever and I did not sleep the whole night, please do something about this.” As usual we started taking the case details, while giving details he said the pain worsens at night and he had similar attack of pain last time, when he was away to some other place. The oral surgeon diagnosed it to be severe oral ulcers involving the throat, for which he was put on a course of antibiotics and multivitamins then. It had taken a long time to heal. Taking cognisance of this history, assuming it to be the same repeat of attack, he requested to treat it with Homeopathy this time. Oral ulcers are syphilitic manifestation according to Homeopathic philosophy, and for oral ulcers worse at night Mercurius Solubilis is the best remedy, therefore, we prescribed Mercurius Solubilis 30 & Kalium Muriaticum 6x thrice daily for two days. Oral ulcers are mostly found in patients with Vitamin B deficiency therefore he was suggested to take dairy products as a Home Remedy. After two days Mr.VB called back saying there was 10-20% relief, which according to me was no change. I asked him to visit ENT specialist of our panel & take his opinion.
He went to the ENT specialist who called me to tell that it was Peritonsillar abscess rather than oral ulcer, he also advised a course of Antibiotic Injection before draining the abscess. On hearing this, the patient Mr.VB called us back asking is this procedure necessary? I am fed up taking antibiotics and their side-effects, I just don’t want to go under the knife. But, his family insisted on the popular method and had faith in the ENT specialist. But, the patient had confidence in nambison’s, on this, we said if you give us 24 hours we shall help you with the healing. If not, you can decide for yourself, on the this the patient and the family happily agreed. Now, with this new diagnosis, far away from the patient, we prescribed Hepar Sulph 30 & Silicea 30 to be taken alternatively. Next day, the patient called up in a happy voice, doctor 90% of the pain gone, no fever, he also resumed his duties.
After two days the patient was fully cured. Hepar Sulph 30 & Silicea 30 are wonderful remedies for abscess. Hepar Sulph is best when there is severe pain but in the initial stages. Whereas silicea is suited to later stage & also aborts the cause of abscess. Therefore, both the medicine did the trick. The dairy products as a Home Remedy supported the treatment by keeing up the immunity & providing the essential nutrients. Thus, the patient was saved from the side-effects of antibiotics, severe suffering on account of surgery, several days of absence from work and also from losing several thousand bucks. Natural wellness the best therapy.
