FIVE YEARS AGO, a 46 year old male patient, a small shop keeper, came to me in a very critical condition. A diagnosed case of CANCER STOMACH. Not willing to continue allopathic treatment, since they insist for surgery and chemotherapy.
He had a long history of chewing and smoking tobacco. Not alcoholic. Mother died of cancer stomach 15 years back when she was 51 years old.
He was very weak, anemic, anxious and irritable. Extreme restlessness. Progressively emaciating since six months. Very chilly. Must cover whole body always. Moaning and wailing continuously.
Persistent burning pain in stomach. Aggravated if anything cold is taken. Desire warm food and drinks. Unquenchable thirst for warm drinks. Frequent eructation of sour fluid. Vomits blood or frothy liquid. Vomits immediately after eating. Vomiting everyday after midnight.
Once the case taking was completed, I felt it is an obvious case of ARS ALB. But I decided to work upon the case minutely and repertorize, in order to avoid chances of getting prejudiced.
FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS WERE SELECTED:
1. [Kent]Mind : ANXIETY
2. [Kent]Mind : LAMENTING, bemoaning, wailing etc. (compare weeping):-
3. [Kent]Mind : IRRITABILITY
4. [Kent]Stomach : CANCER
5. [Kent]Generalities : ANAEMIA
6. [Kent]Generalities : EMACIATION
7. [Kent]Generalities : WEAKNESS, enervation
8. (Kent) Mind: Restlessness:
9. [Kent]Generalities : COLD REMEDIES (Gibson Miller’s)
10. [Kent]Stomach : VOMITING : Blood
11. [Kent]Stomach : VOMITING : Frothy
12. [Kent]Stomach : VOMITING : Eating : After
13. [Kent]Stomach : ERUCTATIONS : Sour
14. [Kent]Stomach : PAIN : Burning
15. [Kent]Stomach : THIRST : Unquenchable
16. [Kent]Stomach : DESIRES : Warm : Drinks
First repertorized using TOTALITY METHOD in Similimum Ultra Software. The output was as follows:
Repertorisation Result – Totality Method
Totality Using – All Symptoms
Ars.(107/16), Phos.(97/14), Sulph.(95/14), Calc.(90/13), Lyc.(89/14), Nux-v.(88/14), Bry.(85/13), Ferr.(85/13), Sil.(84/13),
Then, repertorized using COMBINE METHOD in Similimum Ultra Software:
Result was as follows:
Repertorisation Result – Combined Method
Eliminate Using – All Symptoms
Totality Using – All Symptoms
ARS ALB 30 was given three hourly for one week, then twice daily for three months. From the very next day onward, patient showed improvement. His anxiety and restlessness diminished by next day itself. His moaning and wailing disappeared. Vomiting was in less frequency. By three months, he was almost normal, with occasional burning in stomach.
Patient was not inclined to go for another check up. He said: “I am cured. I am happy. I do not want any check up”.
The frequency of doses was reduced to daily one dose. After six months, I made it weekly one dose. That was continued for one year. Since he had no any complaints, medication was completely stopped after 1 year and 9 months long course of treatment.
Now it is five years. He is happily living his normal life.
