Dystonia (Involuntary spasms), Raynaud's (Numbness & Stabbing in hands & feet), Blood Platelets & Hives treated with Homeopathy
Case Study 2
Mary had been diagnosed with Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) a rare autoimmune disorder where the blood platelets inside the blood are reduced and so the capability of the body to stop bleeding is reduced. She also had a history of migraines and although in recent times she experienced them only 1x every 3 weeks, she rated them as being very severe at a 10/10
Her cognitive function and energy felt depleted, and she rated the significance of this at 7/10. She had chronic insomnia where she woke frequently during the night feeling restless. Mary’s periods were regular although they contained lots of clots/tissue/fibrous bits along with a burning sensation over the past 3 months.
Mary had quiet a few other complaints that I have listed below along with their intensity as a rating out of 10.
CPTSD where she had a feeling of feeling stuck, restricted, trapped, freighted and couldn’t escape.
Dry hair 7/10
Ears became stuffy, on average 3 days per week rated at 6/10
Nose bleeds 6-7 days per week on waking
Voice had random weird pitch changes mid speech, which had been going on for a few years
Hives on her skin which Mary described as being very itchy and dry. She was able to control it temporarily with steroid cream, however as soon as she stopped using the cream the hives would return. This had been going on for 6 months and she believes it started occurring after she went in a float tank.
A history of very bad Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) but Mary was able to control this by sticking to a FOODMAP diet.
After assessing Mary’s face, coupled with taking all her symptoms into account, I selected Calc 30 as a homeopathic remedy to be taken once a day and to follow up with me in a months time.
Results at one month follow-up
At the one month followup Mary had some decent improvement. I have listed the progress of the various ailments at the one month mark below.
The Dystonia (spasms) she hadn’t noticed but the botox was still in effect.
Raynaud’s + cramping hands & feet now 2-3/10 started at 6/10 after botox.
Migraine – did have one but much less intense.
Cognitive energy improved so that the problem was rated at 3/10 but at the 1 month followup appointment mark came back to the original 7/10
Ears stuffy 0/10 was 6/10.
Nose bleeds – none, was every day
Voice pitch changing - doesn't know hasn't talked much in lockdown
Skin hives slight improvement
Sleep with frequent waking 85% improvement although still not super refreshed in the morning
Mary reported that her body didn’t feel as cold as it usually did
One negative thing Sally noticed was that her period came 1 week early, which was different from normal, she was usually very regular, however her period was less heavy. I explained that sometimes during the healing process things can change a bit, but overall she had some good improvements so we should continue with the prescription, but for the next month she should double the dose to 2x per day.
Results at 2 month follow-up
Next month when I saw Mary for her second follow-up she had improved further. She admitted that she had missed the 2nd dose of the medicine 50% of the time, but she still had made very good progress. Below i have listed her progress with her various ailments.
Dystonia spasms (60-70% improvement) on top of what she would expect usually this far out from her regular botox injections.
Raynauds + cramping hands & feet 1-2/10 now, started at 6/10 after botox
Migraine – none and no headaches either, started at 10/10 1x every 3 weeks
CPTSD (Feeling stuck/frightened) - gone
Cognitive energy got better than it did last month and stayed improved with the problem being rated at 2-3/10, started at 7/10
Ears stuffy – gone, was 6/10
Nose bleeds – gone, was 6-7 days per week on waking
Voice pitch changing –gone, voice is normal now,
Speech & word loss (3/10) was 5/10
Period back to 28 days and less heavy but still some clotting
Skin hives 1x small patch only and no steroids,
Hair Dryness – now rated at a 2/10, was a constant 7/10
Insomnia and sleep with frequent waking now dropped back to 50% improvement and still not super refreshed in the morning, was at 85% improvement last month, Body not as cold
Mary was really starting to make some significant progress now. I decided to increase the strength of her medicine to 200C so that it could provide more healing power, whilst she only needed to take it 1x per day.
I have seen Mary since our last treatment, not for a Homeopathic consult but for Bowen Therapy. She says that her sleep returned to much improved, and more refreshing soon after we increased the strength of her medicine at her last appointment. I remember her telling me her skin/hives had been going really well without the steroids. The progress we had made had continued to hold and indeed continued to improve. She did report having a bit of a setback after having her COVID injection, but I advised her to adjust her dose and within two weeks she had recovered and continued to improve in many areas. She also mentioned to me that she had had a blood test and her blood platelets were in the normal range for the first time in 13 years, and the only things she had done differently in that time was take the homeopathic medicine and get the COVID jab.
Using natural homeopathic medicine we were able to help support Mary’s body to be able to heal it’s self from conditions that western medicine were unable to treat as effectively as Mary would have liked. She previously had been coping by just doing less, and mentioned that her life was just getting smaller and smaller due to her inability to live life to the full because it would cause all her conditions to flare up. When I saw Mary last she seemed very happy and optimistic, she sounded like she felt in control of her health again. She had just come back from a long hike and was able to live life to the full again.
Homeopathic medicine is natural, and in 200 years of use has proved to have no side effects or interactions with western medicine. The remedies are cheap, costing only $10 for a month’s supply.
