(Patient conversation with doctor)
Doctor: – Anything bothering you in your routine life?? Which is quite continuous in your mind??
Patient version:- No I have to do work, it’s my only thing. I am very much focused for my work, make no compromise for targets, I don’t have botheration for it, but I do whatever is needed.
Doctor: – but why you want to do it continuously? Is rest not important for you?
Patient: – No I really don’t want to get distracted, I have to keep my speed and my pace
Doctor: – Why??
Patient: – I want to do something great for my family, I know my capacity and knowledge, I want to utilised it fully and I know where and how to apply it
Doctor: – is it for money matter? Or financial security? As you didn’t get time to visit doctor and medicine??
Patient: – Yes, Money is important for my business, but I am not doing anything wrong for success, I never miss-used my position or my power, I never go beyond my morals, it’s my dedication to work and I am doing only that
Ethically I balanced my morals
If I get aggressive on my employee, I make them comfortable (later) and understands their needs and lacking points. I make them smile again
Doctor: – How is sleep?
Patient: – there are many sleepless nights, but it doesn’t affect my routine work. I do my planning at night, make points in diary. It’s important for my business
Doctor: – Anything else you want to share?
Patient: – Nothing
Doctor:-These scale and patches everywhere on your body what you feel about this??
Patient: – Ohh I am really least bothered about all these things. I hardly get time for my meals and sleep; (he took pause here, like he was thinking)…. sometimes I feel I am not the same person I used to be maybe. I am more black than previously. I really don’t give any thought to this, but I feel maybe I did wrong to myself, that it’s my mistake. I have to take care of myself, for this, I am responsible for all these rashes.

Selection of similimum based on mind method ( Revolutionary Homeopathy)
About: – Sulphur
There is constant effort and struggle to be someone, to earn respect. The struggle is for ego and honour. In the Sulphur patient, there is the desire for business, the desire to make money and to be financially sound.
They become indifferent to their appearance or they make lot of effort to appear clean.
The patient feels he is expected to be good in relationships and they are caring (reference book: – Souls of remedies Dr. Rajan Shankaran).
Case analysis: – The patient is a workaholic by nature and wants to continue work without any rest. We can see he is ambitious, but sort of obsessed too. As he forgot to take treatment, we can find frivolousness and indifference to his own health, but he feels it’s his mistake and he is not blaming anyone for it. In the work environment he is following his ethics and wants to achieve something through constant struggle. He has the delusion he is poor so he makes lots of efforts to overcome that.
We can see positivity and hopefulness too. He is often theorising, making plans for the business, writes in his diary.
When we find one shade of personality we can reach the similimum and with help of proper case taking and art of follow up and selection of potency we can help to cure the patient.
DD: – Nux Vomica : was coming up while case taking.
Common rubric ; business, talk of, anxiety business of, fastidious, passionate, ambitious. But we have to differentiate it with the help of the patient’s conversation. This patient was taking care of others and was guiding himself with his personal ethics. He was a philosopher.
