Patient: 11 yrs old girl – Dx: ADHD, ADD, OCD, Tics, diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome.
First visit – December 2011 (“A” refers to the patient)
Per her mother: A is a very social girl. She is the fourth child in a family of five kids. Within the past 3 years she has started some doing some tics. She has always been such an easy kid, but now has become more disruptive and isn’t maturing as fast as her siblings did and/or her friends.
She tends to make a noise which irritates her 5 other siblings. A has to make noises when reading out loud. She has also started making noises during times when she should remain quiet, like in church and school.
A does suffer with headaches – they are not often, but when she gets one, usually she has to just go to bed.
I have noticed in the last year that she will get sores on her face. I really don’t think they are pimples; they look like red sores around her mouth and on her cheeks. She can have dry, chapped lips in the winter.
We just went to the dentist and she had five cavities!
She tends to have a lot burping and flatulence (one of her tics is burping though). .
She does have some warts on her hands. Nothing terrible.
She craves sweets, cheese, fried foods, cakes and pastries, fruit juice and milk.
Last week she woke up two nights in a row about 1 am and was crying. She got up to talk to me about her dream and went to bed, but remembered nothing about it in the morning. Falls asleep fast, she sleeps on side, and sweats during sleep.
She is very frightened by thunderstorms and lightening and is happy to share a room with her sister when there is a storm out. She also does not like hot weather. She tends to run warm, and even in the winter will refuse to wear her hat. When it is hot outside, her face will get really red, but she really doesn’t sweat.
She’s very scared of heights, public speaking, and is uncomfortable being alone, especially in the dark.
Her tics right now are: clearing her throat, eye rolling, eye darting, high pitched noises, moves her hands – spreads them apart, sniffling. She tends to be worse in the afternoon. And they can be worse if she is mentally excited.
She loves to play on the computer, draw, play outside, jump on trampoline, play tag (games), and just being with her friends.
She’s easy going, but will hold her own. She does fight with her siblings and will kick and hit on occasion. It’s so hit or miss with how she will interact with them.
Alone and alone in the dark
Cakes and pastries
Prescription : Conium 30C in a 2oz dropper bottle – 5 drops daily…
1st FOLLOW UP two weeks later:
Mom reported that A was a little better. She says that A has improved in her tics; they are probably the most noticeable. Even her siblings are saying she is better.
It is now March, 2014 and she is still using Mercury 30C now. She doesn’t need the remedy every day, but when she does, it puts her back on the right track. Granted, she did go through 4 remedies, but all continued to propel her in the right direction, not wrong. Not all cases are amazingly quick. Most are slow and gentle like the founder ‘Hahnemann’ said they should be. HFA is the only diagnostic tool I personally deem most vital to helping my patients reach their fullest health potential.
