A 37-year-old male patient from Solapur, Dr. G.K. (PIN:43084) started homeopathic treatment for his complaints of GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) from Life Force on 13th May 2020.
He was suffering from it for 12 years. He used to suffer from burning in the chest, particularly after having tea and spicy food. He was experiencing this discomfort daily, and, once it would start, it used to last for 10-15 minutes. The patient was also experiencing heaviness in the stomach. Reflux used to occur mainly after heavy and fried food. Cough was present occasionally. He was on allopathic medicines but did not get much relief.
He was also suffering from an underactive thyroid, for which he was taking thyroid supplements for the past many years.
He had an average appetite. He loved eating sweets. The patient’s thirst for water was average. He had no issues related to the urine and stool. His sleep was sound.
The patient was a veterinary doctor. He was staying with his wife and 6-year-old daughter. The patient had a stressful relationship with his parents. He often would experience anxiety because of it.
He never had any other major illnesses in the past. Also, no major illnesses were present in his family.
After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed some research-based homeopathic medicines to the patient.
On 11th August 2020, the patient updated in the feedback that he was almost 20% to 30% better with the medicines. He was experiencing burning in the chest but its intensity was less than before. The reflux of food had also reduced. His digestion was overall improved with the homeopathic medicines. The patient was very happy with the progress. He reduced the dose of allopathic medicines, and he was largely on homeopathy now.
On 1st October 2020, the patient reported being further better with the homeopathic medicines. His burning and other discomforts were less than before. The patient was able to eat normal food now. Also, he had completely stopped allopathic medicines. The patient had experienced an overall improvement with the homeopathic medicines.
On 4th February 2021, there was a 60% to 70% improvement in the patient’s health with the homeopathic medicines. The reflux of food was not present anymore. The burning was occasionally present but it was very mild. There was no cough since he started with medicines. Overall, the patient was a lot better now.
On 19th June 2021, the patient reported being 80% better in his relief in the complaints. The burning was occasionally present only when he would have outside or very spicy food. He had no issues after having homemade food. Reflux was not present at all. The patient had overall improved with the homeopathic medicines.
He thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for treating him and improving his health. He is still under treatment to get completely better.
This case highlights that homeopathy is highly effective in treating chronic GERD incredibly and safely without any side effects.
