In the field of medicine, the emphasis is often on quick fixes and instant relief. Patients want to feel better fast, and doctors want to see results. However, sometimes, the best course of action is to wait and let the body heal naturally. In this article, we'll share a case study that taught us the value of waiting for the right homoeopathic remedy.
A male patient in his mid-thirties presented with severe abdominal pain and vomiting, which was diagnosed as a 5.4 mm renal calculi through a scan. The patient was advised to rest and drink fluids. However, the pain and vomiting worsened, and the patient sought medical attention again. Dr. Dorland Martins from Vitanova Homeopathy Clinics gave the patient a single dose of the homoeopathic remedy. The patient showed some signs of improvement in the next 24 hours, but the relief was not significant due to impatience, he visited a urologist who suggested undergoing surgery.
Dr. Dorland Martins suggested waiting a day and further observing the patient's symptoms before surgery since the pain had subsided and the procedure would be expensive. The patient heeded the advice and decided to wait. The next day, the patient's symptoms improved drastically, with the disappearance of symptoms such as vomiting and an increase in appetite. The patient resumed work within a couple of days without any signs or symptoms of kidney stones. A follow-up scan was advised, which confirmed that the stone had passed.
The case study above highlights the importance of waiting for the right remedy and letting the body heal naturally. In homoeopathy, the emphasis is on treating the whole person and stimulating the body's natural healing mechanisms.
