MrS. B, aged 45, came with complaints of heavy bleeding since last 6 months. She had been seen by a gynaecologist who diagnosed the cause due to multiple small fibroids in the uterus. She was advised hysterectomy.

She also had extensive itching all over the body which was time and again suppressed with ointments.

Thermal modality - Hot patient.
Stools - 1-2 daily. Burning after stools.
Urine - burning while urinating.
No other symptoms or family history was available.
10/3/64 - On this auspicious day (the birthday of our founder) the patient felt better. Bleeding was reduced. The itching of skin was also less.
24/4/64 - Again heavy flow. Menopausal flushes with itching of skin.
Sulphur 1M (3)

In June 64 - Sulphur 10M one dose was given.
Within a year, menses stopped; occasional flushes continued. Itching better. She used to meet me socially and was better. She has not gone again to a Gynaecologist. Probably the fibroids too disappeared. From my long experience I have found that in such cases of elderly ladies, after the indicated remedy, fibroids atrophy or disappear or remain inactive.

Debility at Menopause:

Women at menopause frequently complain of a burning pressure on the vertex. This usually is a symptom of debility from loss of blood. Give such patients three tablets of China before each meal. (Dr. Elli G Jones).
