R.Waghmare, an young enthusiastic practitioner had presented a case of
hormonal insuffiency with evidence based documents.
case is of one of my friend who is an academician and practitioner attached
to a medical college. He is very handsome with pointed nose, only his
embarrassing complaint is lack of beard and moustache growth, even though
his general growth is good with age proportion.
social forces and criticism had made him develop loss of self-confidence,
which gradually pushed him to depression. He hesitated to get married.
He consulted me at last with low levels of testosterone study.
is from middle class family, very understandable, mild but sensitive and
emotional, Sometimes depression made him to weep and he never expressed
or shared his fealings with anybody. But he was fastidious and sympathetic
to others feeling.
had headache if he takes more time while eating, occasionally had dry
cough with irritation in the throat< oily foods. His appetite was normal
and thirst also good. No specific desires and aversions. Normal bowel
movements. He goes to bed with great difficulty and with frightful dreams.
Exhausted very easily.
had measles when four years old and mumps at the age of eleven. His paternal
grand mother had uterine prolapse.
The above picture with history of mumps and its sequalae pointed towards
Pulsatilla as his constitutional remedy.
