Kalyani is a 26-year-old who had suffered fromankylosing spondylitis 10 years. She walked in a very stiff, waddling way and was almost weeping from the severe pain despite taking allopathic medicines daily. All thanks to her friend as she advised to visit her nearest homeopathy clinic as soon as she noticed ankylosing spondylitis symptoms. Thus, she decided to book an appointment with her homeopath. Her description of the nature of her suffering goes like this:
“The worst thing is the terrific stiffness in my back – it is so stiff all the time. The pain is worse in the morning and my left hip is very painful. I get very angry with myself because I just can’t do anything at all. The stiffness and pain wake me between 3:00 AM and 4:00 AM and I have to get up and put on the heated pad. I turn a lot in bed but I do not feel restless and sitting is okay. I am so very stiff in the morning and have to take a hot bath or shower in order to loosen up enough to go to work. But still, the stiffness lasts for one and a half hours.”
After consulting the homeopath and religiously following his prescription for a couple of months, Kalyani experienced improvement in her condition and this is how she described her improvement:
“The relief from the homeopathic medicine was very fast, I feel so much better. I can cope much better. I have more energy. My neck moves much easier than it used to. I can turn my neck further to the sides. Sometimes I do not even realize that I have got a sore back at all.”
