The father of a 6-year-old boy, Mast. Y.M.K. (PIN: 20975), consulted us at Life Force over the phone on 18th April 2013 for his son, who was suffering from recurrent tonsillitis. This ailment was bothering him from one year. The child was suffering from acute and recurrent episodes of tonsillitis every month that used to last for minimum 5-6 days. His complaints used to start with high-grade fever with throat pain and extreme body weakness. Sometimes, his episode was accompanied by a headache and a cough with whitish-yellow colored sputum. His all complaints used to get aggravated by having cold drinks and sudden weather change. He took various antibiotics which gave him temporary relief.
The child was following a vegetarian diet. He had a great desire for sweets in general, and he avoided spicy food. Thermally, he was neither sensitive to the hot weather nor to the cold climate.
The patient’s father was a lawyer by profession and had psoriasis, while his mother was a homemaker. Also, the patient’s elder sister was healthy and accompanied him to the school.
The child was an easy-going child and never threw any tantrums. He was a good, well-behaved child.
Dr. Shah studied his case in detail and prescribed Arsenic album 30 C along with research-based medicines to the patient.
The patient gave his first follow-up on 27th July 2013. In the very first feedback, the child showed a 70% improvement in his recovery from the complaints. He had experienced an acute episode only once in six weeks in his first batch of medicines, in which the intensity of his signs and symptoms had reduced. His cough had turned dry, and, occasionally, he spat out sputum. There was no fever affecting him this time. The intensity in the difficulty in swallowing the food during an acute episode had reduced.
On 24th January 2014, the patient’s father called and mentioned that the patient experienced no further episodes of tonsillitis. The child was maintaining good health. He wished to continue with the same medicines.
On the follow-up on 3rd August 2016, the patient had experienced a relapse again but that was mild. So, Dr. Shah studied case in detail and revised his medicines.
On the follow-up on 10th January 2017, the patient’s father called and mentioned that the patient had experienced no further episodes of tonsillitis. He got good relief and had experienced no relapse again.
On the follow-up on 16th August 2018, the patient’s father called and mentioned that the patient had experienced no further episodes of tonsillitis and was enjoying good health. He wished to continue with the same medicines.
The patient is still under our treatment till date for the same and for other illness.
This case highlights that proper homeopathic treatment is able to check the repeated infection of tonsillitis and offers great relief from it successfully and safely without any side-effects.
