Creating Waves of Awareness
An old woman consulted me for her pain in the left elbow joint since 20 days. It was diagnosed as ‘Sandhi vatha’ by a herbal healer, and she was taking some herbal preparations given by him, including some external oils. She has age related complaints such as weak memory, muscle pains, tremors etc. Because of the pain, she was not in a position to do her daily activities, especially Namaz.
On examination, there was swelling on the olecrnon process of the ulna. The swelling was very tender, especially while pressing and moving the joint. Very easily I could diagnose the condition – Olacranon Bursitis.
The Homoeopathic medicine given was Ruta 200, five doses on alternate day. Placebo in the form of blank tabs was also given. She was asked to give the feedback after ten days.
She came back after 10 days, and thanked me for vanishing the swelling. Now she can perform Namaz with no pains. She also said that she will also include me in her prayers!
She comes for routine checkup, and is fine till date.
