A 35-year-old lady working professional from Pune, Mrs. R.Y. (PIN 37955) visited Life Force Paud branch on 14th September 2018 for her complaints of frequent colds.
The patient was suffering from frequent colds since childhood. She would suffer from an episode of cold whenever there would be a weather change and it would last for 2-3 days. During the episode, she used to experience a running nose, irritation at the base of the nose, nose block, and watering of eyes. Her complaints were very severe, and they made it difficult for her to work or carry out her daily chores smoothly. Slight triggers, such as sour food, dust, and exposure to the cold weather would initiate an episode. The patient had tried many treatments in the past. She used to use a nasal spray when her symptoms used to get aggravated.
The patient was also suffering from severe acidity for the past 6 months. The patient was an engineer working in a good MNC in Pune. She had a 2.5 years old child.
The patient was very cheerful, expressive, confident, talkative, brave, and optimistic. She used to enjoy a good company.
After studying her case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed her research-based medicines for frequent colds along with other homeopathic medicines for 6 weeks.
On her first follow-up on 13th November 2018, the patient reported that she was 50% better and her complaints of morning sneezing had stopped.
Her second follow-up was after a long gap on 1st January 2019, during which 50%-60% improvement her relief from the frequent cold was observed.
When the patient gave her third follow-up on 19th March 2019, the patient very happily said that she is 80% better than earlier. She experienced just some mild episodes, which are not very frequent even with the triggers.
In some cases, homeopathy is very fast-acting but that does not mean the same would be in every case. It depends on the individual. This case highlights that homeopathy is highly effective in treating frequent colds successfully and safely without any side-effects.
