Introduction:

During case study, case processing is done under following headings:

Synthesis of the case: Synthesis is the collection of symptoms in new form.

Analysis of the case: Analysis is the comparison between two or more objects; here we compare & differentiate the symptoms of the patients from the symptoms of the disease.

Evaluation of the symptoms in the case: Evaluation is the special technique for gradation of symptoms, according to their values.

CASE-1:

A woman, aged 40 years has been suffering from following complaints:

  • She has been suffering from bloody per vaginal white discharges, since her childhood.
  • She is unable to travels by bus, it causes vomiting.
  • She almost lost her sexual desire.
  • She does not like company of her husband.
  • She feels better by first motion.
  • Feels worse while uncovering her body.

Synthesis of the case:

Presenting Complaints:

  • She has been suffering from bloody leucorrhoea, since her childhood.
  • She is unable to travels by bus, it causes vomiting.

Past History:

  • Bloody leucorrhoea, since her childhood.

Generalities:

  • Cannot travels by bus, it causes vomiting.
  • Modalities:
  • Feels better by first motion.
  • Feels worse while uncovering her body.
  • Mental:
  • Does not like company of her husband.
  • Almost lost her sexual desire.

Analysis of the case:

Anomalies:

  1. Has been suffering from bloody leucorrhoea, since her childhood.
  2. Cannot travels by bus, it causes vomiting.
  3. > By 1ST motion.
  4. < By uncovering body.
  5. Does not like company of her husband.
  6. Almost lost sexual desire.

History of bloody leucorrhoea is the main anomalies in this case. Hence, our selected medicine should have an important symptom of bad effects of persistent leucorrhoea.   

Evaluation of the symptoms in the case:

Evaluation is the special technique for gradation of symptoms, according to their values. By DR. J.T. KENT’S methods of evaluation this case evaluated under following heading:

Mental General Symptoms:

  • Dose not like company of her husband.
  • Loss of sexual desire.

Physical General Symptoms:

  • Intolerance: to travels by bus, causes vomiting.
  • > By 1st motion.
  • < By uncovering body.
  • Has been suffering from bloody leucorrhoea, since childhood.

Common Symptoms:

  • No marked symptoms.

Rubrics hunting (Kent’s Repertory):

  • High fever, since vaccination.
  • Catches cold easily.
  • He cannot tolerate milk.
  • Profuse perspiration.

Past History:

  • Bad effects of vaccination.

Generalities:

  • Intolerance: milk.
  • Sweat: profuse.

Prescriable Totality: Staring from slightest noise. Intolerance: milk. Sweat: profuse. Heat-cold relation: Very chilly. High fever, since vaccination. Abdomen enlarges.

Prescription:

RX. Silicea 200/two doses with Sac. Lac.to be taken twice morning, in empty stomach.

Case-1: Repertorisation; ‘Zomeo Academic’ software image.

Case-2: Repertorisation; ‘Zomeo Academic’ software image.

Remarks:

After case study, case processing, repertorisation, we should consult with Materia Medica and Organon of Medicine with Homoeopathic Philosophy and as per our interpretation of the case and we will select the remedy and follow-up our case, according to our Applied Science and Art of Homoeopathy, with Individual Constitutional Homoeopathic method of treatment.

  • In Case No.: 1, software and manual repertorisation both leads Sepia512or Sepia 513.
  • In Case No.:2, software repertorisation show Sulphur614, Calc.carb.514, Silicea513 and manually Silicea616. As history of the bad effects of vaccination is the main anomaly in this case. Hence, our selected medicine should have an important symptom of bad effects of vaccination, which lead to Silicea.
