Selenium Instead Of Interferon

A Person came to my clinic . He is a drug addict and in his 30’s he has a family a beautiful six year old child and works in factory , some years ago he had an accident which damaged his hand

His statement to me was I don’t have any thing to share with that world for a long time , but he came to me for another problem , he discovered he suffered from hepetatis B as so many others who use synges , now they are more care ful he says but he was the unlucky one , transimanases are still high and what has been left as chronic weakness and lowered physical resistances

These symptoms still keep alive the memory of that bad time , and he is always afraid of his liver , so when symptoms such as some little pains in his right side or an annoying itch torment him without eruptions in particular in the lower part of his legs and in the evening he has these anxious thoughts about his health

So has lived wwwwith his problem for a long time and he compares it to damocies sword hanging over his head

These symptoms come and go since periodically he undergoes interferon therapy .during therapy his symptoms and level of transimases regress . then a short while passes and his symptoms and back in full force

Recently he has also been told to try another therapy with thyroid hormone . But he has decided to change change therapies since he can not stand the adverse effects of the interferon therapy and these constitutions ups and downs in the health

More over during the homoeopathic interview he pointed out that since he was a child he has suffered frim car sickness and that he suffers from them for the rest of the day

He desires chocolate , hot milk has a strong aversion to tomatoes since they also upset the digestive system

In addition in the above information he suffers from anxiety about health and has fear of impending illness reiterating that he feels as if damocies sword his hanging over the head

I chose phosphourous since this seemed to to fit . I prescribed phosphorous 12LM daily for a month and phosphorous 18LM for the following month telling him to shake the bottle containing the remedy vigorously before taking each dose

On his second visit he doses not present a satisfactory mental or physical improvement , therefore I restudy case from the beginning and during this interview a very characteristic symptom emerges . for many years now Roberto’s perspiration has been quite salty , so much so that there is a so that that there is a salt residue left on his laundry

I reperterize again and to my satisfaction obtain the results result shown in chart . since selenium has the best probably I recheck my Boericke to see the mental state of the remedy as well after reading Boericke I am satisfied that this remedy is also good for this feeling of weakness from his state and also a good remedy for chronic disease of the liver I chose selenium 18 LM I see him again on march 8th 1994 and he tells me that he is feeling quite well perhaps better that when I was on the interferon

A remaining symptom is that his  legs start itching when he eats indigestible food

He no longer suffers from frequent liver pains or diarrhea .He had his transaminases checked the day before he visited my clinic and they were so low that he remarked ,this really seems impossible to me and infact that he would like to repeat transaminase test after a couple of months just to be sure the levels remain low and do not increase in a short time as was the case with interferon .I prescribe selenimium 24 LM to use for a couple of days if the patient symptoms reappearing

I don’t see him again until December 1995 . He has taken the remedy only two or three times for a light itch on his legs after ovcerealing at lunch time . He also showed his transiminase levels taken on the 28th November which show a slight rise , but nothing compared to that they were when he was on the interferon

AUTHO’S NOTE ;;;; Examining the repertisation we notice two characteristic physical symptom needed to arrive at his remedy

1] salty deposit after perspiration 

2]  itching ankle

So I believe that I should research in this case more physical symptoms, we should do this with patience and accuracy for every body part with out hurry fear of prolonging the examination . In fact this and other similar cases have taught me that key notes exist which reveal the person’s remedy . Even if they are symptoms on the periphery, I believe each part of the human body contains the totality as in a hologram . Sometimes this is told spontaneously by the patient but only a few rare cases . In the majority of cases the simillimum is the result of meticulous researching and astute observation of the symptoms as well as the conscious of the patients symptoms as well as the conscious active collaboration of the patient

I also believe that the mental symptoms are useful only if personalized with the modalities , otherwise they lead one to false interpretations and wrong conclusions , they can be taken into consideration to confirm the patients picture and the choice of remedy  .
