This article was originally published in Similia — December Volume 21, 2 Abstract Ambra grisea is a well known remedy for old people, but it is also has a less well known constitutional picture. In this case I initially prescribed two well known polychrests to which the patient responded well, but developed a proving symptom. Further work on the case led to a much better prescription, of the less well known remedy, Ambra grisea.
This article is in two parts: part one is the initial consultation with follow ups, prescriptions and analysis. Part two discusses the subsequent analysis and consultations and looks at the remedy Ambra grisea. This is the case of a thirty four year old unmarried woman.

Job includes flat. The mother of the children where I work is hard work [is hard to please], she is neurotic and paranoid. It never calms down. Known them and worked for them for 10 years, only had two other jobs. Lot [of emotions] crammed inside me. I get upset when talking about things with her. Her direct way of talking makes you feel small.
I wake up at 3am and read for hours. Think would enjoy having children myself. Very self conscious when I go out. I was tall, stood out, looked at when I was a child at school 3. It is hard to walk into a room by myself. I am quiet not outgoing, have my own set of friends, reserved. I think that others make fools of themselves 2. I often go to work early.

Headaches gone after two weeks. Feeling a bit better. Had quite a few bruises. Couple of talks boss — money, holiday time, stood up, defended myself 3. Angry not tearful 2. Would like to stay another year. Not a good time to leave for the children. Perspiration not so bad 2.
Prescription: Wait. Good response to the remedy, except for the bruises, a new symptom. Sleep deteriorated, thinking about things, jaw feels strange.
Headaches never returned. Jaw symptoms did not develop. Bruises long lasting arms 3. What to do and her reaction, she would make me feel very guilty. Perspiration the same 2.
Aching legs not remembered. Menses teary, did not want to go out. Constipation: stool every other day rather than twice a week. Sleeping and headache definitely better. Feel more confident, going out more.

Prescription: Carcinosin c on basis of poor sleep, family history, relationship to Natrum muriaticum AND concern about bruises when takes Natrum muriaticum. Ache in jaw just returned.
Problem sleeping again. Hotness has been a lot better 2. Stool now daily, used to be constipated. Periods better, no achy legs. No bruises. Prescription: Natrum muriaticum 10M.
