Mrs. C.D., 35 years, a housewife of Kanaipur, Hooghly in West Bengal was suffering from bleeding piles since last 10 years. She was previously under treatment of a local homoeopath for at least 4 years, who failed to cure. Only bleeding was subsided. Since last 6 months, problem had seriously aggravated and forced her to go to an allopath for immediate relief, though her family faiths in homoeopathy. The G. P. tried to relieve for a month and then refer to a Surgeon.
The Surgeon, engaged in Kolkata’s Nil Ratan Sarkar Hospital and Medical College, run by the state government. After clinical and pathological observation, she was advised for admission on a specific date. On that day, Mrs. Das gone to be admitted at the NRS but found the Surgeon was on leave for 15 days. Only then, her family opted to consult a second homoeopath considering the operation may be averted and the problem is over.
Her husband, a patient of severe eczema, was treated by my father late Dr. Harimohan Choudhury. They came to me on June 10, 1999 with a mind that Dr. Choudhury’s method of treatment can cure her. Within a few months, she was fully cured. It was possible by following the latest scientific advice of our Master Hahnemann, i.e. in LM potency.
