I had a client come to see me for osteopathic manipulation – she is a State Health Educator. She had laryngitis, sore throat, but stated that she felt great. She has been on a constitutional homeopathic remedy for a chronic illness. So I decided to do nothing for her but the treatment manually that she needed for alignment.
On the 4th day after I saw her, I woke up aching and hurting all over with a horrible headache and sinus congestion . I tried to dismiss it but by the evening I had developed a fever of 102, HR 122, Pulse oxygen saturation of 90 (normal is 99-100%). I thought that I was a “goner” and reluctantly took Nux vomica 30 c.
After 6 hours I was greatly improved. I took a 2nd dose and by the next day I was mostly comfortable and functional in the house (could not do hard chores outdoors like mucking out the barns . . . . so my husband did it.).
I am just fine this week now. Back out doing normal work in the gardens and with the animals.
Report another 2 days later: “I still feel great.”
Note: not my client (Richard) but that of a medical colleague.
