Glaucoma – Surgery without getting operated
Case of Madhuri Balivada
Pregnancy is the most beautiful phase of women's life. Two souls in single body. A woman is called complete only after having a baby.
So this 10 months of pregnancy phase is most precious and important to both mother and child. Everyone knows that complete peace of mind is necessary for pregnant ladies, but no other school of doctors except homeo doctors witness how seriously and directly it affects the child, even after birth.
This is a case of young beautiful humble lady of age 25, unmarried software engineering came to my clinic with a problem of glaucoma and developed uveitis after heavy allopathic medication. Her intra ocular pressure was too high to handle with allopathic medication and her doctor advised her to go for surgery immediately.
When she consulted me, her intra ocular pressure was 48 in one eye and 40 in other, and I too was in a great pressure that I have to control her pressure within 7 days, otherwise she would go for surgery. I had only one option. That was TO TAKE PERFECT analysis of CASE WITHOUT MISSING Minute Details, because there is no option for left as l had only a chance.
I asked patient to go home and told her that I will be visiting her place after l finish my clinic.
After finishing my clinical work, I went to her place and l had a nice long talk with her having my favourite coffee with a peaceful mind.
As l reached her place, she was suffering from all symptoms of uveitis. Heavy pain and pressure in head and eyes as well.
CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN ME AND PATIENT:
ME: Hi. Relax. You comfortably lay down on bed, I will sit here. And l will record your case.
SHE: No Mam, I am fine. (SHE WAS NOT FEELING WELL.) We will sit in the balcony, good air will come and my mom prepared nice coffee for you, as I know you love coffee. Will drink and talk.
ME: Okay. (After getting set in the balcony.) So… What’s up? I am not in a hurry to go home and I am sure you too won't feel bore with me and this is the perfect time to talk. So... Come on. Open up... You can say everything and anything to me.
SHE: Thank you so much mam for coming my place. I am already feeling better after listening to you.
I don't have much time mam as doctor advised me for operation. I am feeling worried about my ailment. All my works are getting late due to this problem. Doctor even insisted me taking at least three weeks of rest even after my operation. Now I am already on leave. Even today I worked from home. My team members need my assistance. Work is going to be affected.
Me: So what? I think your eyes are more precious than your job.
SHE: My work is my identity. I love my work. I don't like to waste time. I don't have any other interests. So I want to be back asap. I want to be a successful a professional.
ME: How is your job? Colleagues? Boss? Any tensions?
SHE: I have lot of PRESSURE in my job. I need to think continuously and be active. I have over load of work (+++), I work carefully, I don't want to give a chance to others to point fingers on any of my work and me. I am sensitive to criticism.
ME: It seems you have lot of pressure in your job. Why don't you resign your job and stay with parents and marry some nice guy?
(I TRIED TO IRRITATE HER INTENTIONALLY, TRIED TO TOUCH HER WEAK POIN. I WANTED TO MAKE HER ANGERY, IT IS EASY TO TAKE RECORD SYMPTOMS WHEN THE PATIENT ANGERED. Acute and anger are best phases to collect exact symptoms).
She said nothing. Started swinging in to and fro motion. Avoided eye contact with me. She lost her interest in talking with me, started biting her nails. Tried her level best to control her anger.
ME: Right now, describe your eye and head pain.
SHE: I am feeling lot of pressure in my eye and head region. I can't bear this pain any more.
ME: How is your mental condition during pain?
SHE: Irritability. Lot of irritation. I feel anger.
See: how beautifully her mental and physical symptoms are synchronizing with each other. This is the exact condition of her mind when I irritated her with my last question. (SHE COULDN’T TAKE IT ANY MORE.)
One more pinching question to her:
ME: WHY DON'T YOU LEAVE YOUR JOB?
(This answer is very precious for me, because She is in a stage of 'I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE'; at this stage real answer comes.)
HER ANSWER: Madam, I DON'T WANT TO DEPEND ON ANY ONE. I am very ambitious. I want to be in top position. My father is retired person, I need to take care of my parents. There is no question of leaving my job. I don't think that I am lucky enough to get another job. In spite of working sincerely I did not receive much appreciation from my boss. Sometimes I feel depressed and low.
ME: You express your anger?
SHE: YES. Sometimes. But if I say anything out of anger, I suffer more than the opposite person until unless I patch up again. Most of the time I apologize and convince them.
ME: What is the main quality you want to see in your life partner?
SHE: one who will understand me... Appreciate me.... Encourage me... I don't like people who discourage me.

(ANY ANSWER WHICH COMES INSTANTLY NEED TO BE CONSIDERED THAT MAY BE SILLY OR COMMON THING)
NOTE: As I have only one chance to relieve her instantly this much information was not sufficient for my treatment. I took case history from her mother too.
ME: Aunty, please tell me about yourself.
MOTHER: She is very sensitive to opinions of others, lot of mood swings. She gets angry very fast but weeps and apologize within few minutes. She always thinks about family. Takes extra care in everything. She cries easily. She is suffering from uncontrollable pain.
ME: WHAT WAS YOUR MENTAL CONDITION DURING PREGNANCY?
MOTHER: (complete silence for short time) It’s been 25yrs, still I can't forget those nine months of my pregnancy. That was the most stressful phase of my life. My husband used to work in vigilance department. As you know, he is very sincere and honest worker. Some political persons investigational enquiry was entrusted to him. At times we used to get life threatening letters. Two police personnel used to give security to us. I used to be in constant ANXIETY and PRESSURE until my husband reached home safely after work. We used to have one office land line phone at that time. whenever the door or phone bell rang I used to get very much scared.
ME: OK. Is any family history of breast cancer?
MOTHER: My sister died with breast cancer. My brother suffered from tuberculosis. And 20 years back, I developed lump in my breast and removed surgically.
THAT WAS THE CASE.
After repertorisation CARCINOSIN came as leading remedy. But some main physical symptoms like glaucoma, head pain pressure amel, faintness in closed room are not covering with CARCINOSIN... but covered in PULSATILLA. PULSATILLA was coming close to her personality too.
But Carcinosin is apt remedy for her. Alertness, pleasing others, longing for good opinion of others. Specially Carcinocin patients likes kids a lot. They can't tolerate extremes of temperature.
Her mother history during her pregnancy is also strong indication for Carcinosin. Family history of cancer and tuberculosis also matching with Carcinosin. From starting to ending she spoke about her job, profession and glaucoma only. Her mind symptoms matching with Carcinocin. She was worried more mentally than physically. But even at this point she was working from home, just because she couldn’t neglect her duty and couldn’t say no to her boss. She was suffering within herself, she was not willing to do work, was getting irritation, angered. Even though she wasn’t keeping well she preferred to be presentable in front of her colleagues, boss and in front of me. I sat with her for more than an hour which was very difficult for her at that point of time. THAT IS CARCINOSIN.
So, next day morning I prescribed her just two doses of CARCINOSIN 200C. I was so confident about my prescription that I didn’t even give any placebo doses to her. Just asked her to take single dose. Asked to stop all medications.
After first dose, her both eyes intra ocular pressure increased. Her inflammation, head pain, everything increased. I insisted her not to take any medication. I told her that single dose of medicine is enough to reduce her pressure or else I promised her that I will refer her to some other homeopath who is more experienced and talented than me. (Because I can't put her eyes in risk with my prolonged medication without relief.)
From 3rd day onwards she started feeling better. After one week I asked them to check her eye pressure. It came to normal just in one week. Her doctor told that there is no need for surgery. She stopped all her eye drops and medication from the first day of homeo treatment.
You can hear the results in patient’s words (video): https://www.facebook.com/madhuri.balivada/videos/1775943359151982/
She is still under observation. Her intra ocular pressure is normal now, no head pains. No suffering. But I am not saying that she is cured completely. I am sure that she would require few more drugs in future for complete recovery. Her menstrual cramps coming on and off.
Overall she is feeling much better.
Homeopathy saved her from surgery. Glory goes to Hahnemann and his beautiful homeopathy.
