Jerry was a tall man, age 46, intelligent, polite, trim, but barely able to walk, and looking visibly discouraged.

Jerry’s chief complaints were progressive weakness in his left leg, numbness in his left hand, and fatigue. His complaints began in 1993 while he worked as a scientist for a major pharmaceutical company. Extensive medical evaluations were done. The initial finding was “possible demyelinating disease.” As Jerry’s symptoms progressed, he noted marked difficulty with leg coordination and with balance while walking. In 1995, he was laid off due to “downsizing” when the company was taken over by another pharmaceutical drug giant. The layoff was very traumatic for him. A year later, he was diagnosed with Progressive-Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis (PRMS), more commonly called Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS). The diagnosis was made through brain MRI and enhanced spinal MRI.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system – the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve. MS causes destruction of the coating or myelin sheath that surrounds and protects nerve fibers (axons). This damage can disrupt the normal flow of messages or nerve impulses from the central nervous system, causing a reduction or loss of body function. Often, the nerve fibers are also destroyed. Here are some interesting facts about MS:

  • It is diagnosed more than twice as often in women as in men
  • MS seems to be concentrated in certain areas of the world. For example, higher rates of MS are found in those living farther from the equator.
  • MS has been associated with certain viruses like mononucleosis (Epstein Barr), varicella zoster (herpes simplex virus 3) and Hepatitis A & B vaccines, although some claim research is lacking to prove this.

Homeopathic Treatment of Brain Hemorrhage: Several Cases

By Manfred Mueller, RSHom (NA), CCH

first appeared in The American Homeopath, vol 19

Cerebrovascular injuries, whether from trauma, surgery or internal chronic conditions, are all too often the cause of permanent disability, if not fatal outcomes. It is perhaps because of the very severity and hopelessness of these cases that they constitute some of the most frustrating and at the same time most rewarding work a homeopath can engage in. In this article I hope to convey some of the triumphs, as well as difficulties, we homeopaths may encounter while working with the victims of brain injury and their families.

Case # 1: Hemiplegia after Hemorrhagic Stroke with Hematoma

Harriet called from Roanoke, VA, about six hours from Durham, NC, where I then practiced. Her older sister Eleanor, aged 70, had collapsed after she suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and, “was now in a bad way.” She was lying in the hospital bed, nearly unconscious, and tests showed she was completely paralyzed on the left side. Her breathing was noisy, with a snoring sound. Eleanor was currently on a ventilator and taking several medications. Harriet, aged 62, was a retired hospital administrator and did not trust that conventional treatment was going to do her sister much good. She reasoned, “At the very least she can use all the help she can get!”

The first few consultations were conducted with Harriet travelling six hours to Durham to speak with me in person. She would describe her sister’s appearance and observational symptoms, since Eleanor was unable to talk. She would then travel back the same day and take her the remedies, administering them herself.
