A 9-years-old boy, Master Z.A. (PIN: 36069) visited Life Force on 9th March 2018 for his chief complaints of asthma, which he was suffering from eight years. He used to suffer from an episode of asthma once in two months. His episode used to start with continuous coughing followed by difficulty in expectoration so much so that it would end up in breathlessness. Also, he would feel irritation in his nose.
His nose was always blocked because of which he would feel suffocated. His asthma attack would get aggravated if he happens to come in the contact with the cold air, particularly in the winters, and dust, after eating cold drink, ice creams, banana, and on exertion. He was on conventional medicines but got temporary relief.
His diet consisted of non-vegetarian food. He had a special liking for chicken, chocolates, eggs, and meat. His thirst was average. He was sensitive to the cold.
His milestones were proper as per his age. His family consisted of his parents. He was in 3rd std. There was a strong family medical history of asthma present in his family. His mother and grandparents were suffering from asthma. There was no major illness present in his past.
In terms of behavior, he was a mischievous child but good in his studies. He used to get angry, shout loudly, and push people forcefully. He was fond of playing.
Dr. Shah studied the whole case in detail and prescribed Antimonium tartaricum along with his research-based asthma molecules for 6 weeks and asked the patient to give follow-ups thereafter.
When he visited on 9th August 2018 for a follow-up, there was a 60% improvement in his condition. He had experienced only one episode in the last five months. His conventional medicines had also stopped.
He reported over the phone on 28th November 2018. His overall health had improved up to 70% There were no major episodes affecting him from August 2018. The patient is no longer following any conventional medicines and doing well after receiving homeopathic treatment from Life Force.
In this case, the genetic predominance of asthma was affecting the child, as most of his family members were suffering from asthma, and such a case of asthma was very well treated by homeopathy. Homeopathy treats asthma effectively and safely without any side-effects.
