A 25-year-old female (PIN: 39323) visited Life Force Homeopathy clinic for the complaints of her Asthma on 9th February 2019.
She had been suffering from asthma for 15 years. Her complaints had increased significantly for the last three months. She used to suffer from continuous bouts of dry cough which would last for around 5 minutes followed by breathlessness, wheezing with the tightness in the chest, and difficulty in inspiration (inhalation). Due to this, she used to get easily exhausted. Her complaints used to get aggravated due to the cold weather, cold drinks, dust, at night, and by lying down. She used to feel better by sitting and after taking honey.
The patient initially used to take inhalers daily at night to relieve her complaints but had no relief, so she stopped using them.
There was a strong family history of Asthma, as both her grandparents had asthma.
Also, the patient had severe urticaria from 6 years for which she was taking the conventional treatment. She was also diagnosed having PCOD and was taking treatment for it too.
The patient was a non-vegetarian by diet. She had craving for sweets and aversion towards the spicy food. Her perspiration was profuse on the forehead. She was a chilly patient thermally. Her bowels were satisfactory, and her menses were regular. She enjoyed sound sleep and occasionally used to have scary dreams.
The patient was an MBA student. She had anticipatory anxiety regarding her career. Also, she had stress regarding her relationship, due to which her complaints used to aggravate.
After studying her case details, Dr. Shah prescribed her research-based molecules for 6 weeks.
After 6 weeks, when the patient reported on 17th March 2019, she was 90% better with her complaints. Her breathlessness and wheezing had completely got cured. Her weakness had also reduced significantly.
She was very happy with the treatment and was all praises for Dr. Shah.
This case illustrates that homeopathy can treat chronic cases of asthma remarkably within a short span of time and without any need for conventional treatment.
