Homeopath: from Switzerland
Ms. H., a lady of 42, comes with a kind of hyperkeratosis of her hands, which makes the skin crack in winter, leaving deep fissures. She also complains of much nervousness, menstrual colics and difficulties with accepting her feminine side. She presents a peculiar fear of turtles.
With her clear amelioration by exertion, her irritability and other symptoms, a differential diagnosis could have been Sepia.
The remedy triggered a very prompt and strong response. Simultaneously with a first aggravation, she felt much more relaxed, energetic, healthy - and by and by, her physical complaints vanished, too. With only four doses within three years, she feels a totally different person today.
