A 64-years-old elderly lady, Mrs. R.K (PIN L-10938) was brought to Life Force by her son. She was a known case of asthmatic bronchitis for 35 yrs.
She was suffering from frequent cold and cough for many years. It was extremely distressing for her, particularly during the night when she had to wake up in order to hawk out a cough. This would disturb her sleep and her next day would be unrefreshing. This was accompanied by breathlessness, as she would get up in the bed and gasp for breath and would want the doors and windows to be open. From the past one year, these complaints had become severe as it would occur every day.
The lady would faint with tremendous exhaustion after an attack. She would feel very weak. She used to experience an increased perspiration all over the body and dryness of mouth.
Her breathlessness was worst in the autumn, on the exposure to the cold air, and after bathing. She was on steroid-based inhalers twice a day with not much relief in her complaints. She was diabetic and hypertensive and was on medication for it.
Her appetite had reduced in the last 6 months leading to weight loss of 10 kgs. There was a marked craving for sweets, but she would not have them on account of diabetes. She was experiencing an increased thirst and perspiration. Her bowel movements were regular.
She was described aggressive and short-tempered by her family members. She was found irritable most of the times. Quite often, she would be verbally abusive and, later, she would repent of it. There was no major stress in her life.
Based on these case details, Dr. Shah prescribed her research-based medicines for asthmatic bronchitis.
In 6 weeks of the treatment, Mrs. R. K. reported a marked difference in her cough. The frequency of her cough was reduced by 20%, and the hawking was considerably less. The same medicines were continued further.
In 10 weeks of the treatment, the hawking was reduced by 50%. At this point, she reduced the inhalers as they were not needed anymore.
In 6 months of the treatment, her relief from breathlessness and cough was better by 75%. Her asthma attacks were relatively less. They would occur occasionally once in a while. Their severity was considerably less, and they could be managed with homeopathy alone. She was able to sleep well at night. Her weakness was better a lot than what it was earlier. She was very happy with the treatment, and so were her family members.
She is continuing with the treatment further and is under the care of Dr. Shah for the best results with homeopathy.
This case highlights that homeopathy is quite effective in treating chronic cases of asthma successfully and safely without any side-effects. The patient with 35 years persistent asthma got a great relief with homeopathy in just 6 months.
