A 65-year-old male patient, Mr. A.K.S. (PIN: 37935) visited Life Force Homeopathy clinic on 13th September 2018 for the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia.
The patient had complaints of electric shock-like pain on the left side of his cheek from four months. His pain used to get triggered with the slightest touch. He used to turn irritable during the attack and was not able to perform any activities due to the pain. He had to take conventional medicines (Tab. Tegretol (Carbamazepine) 200 mg) daily to control his pain.
Along with this, he also had hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and an underactive thyroid for which he was taking conventional medicines.
The patient had undergone angioplasty five years back.
His brother also suffered from Trigeminal Neuralgia.
The patient was a non-vegetarian by diet. He liked eating fruits and rice. His bowels were unsatisfactory. His perspiration was average. Thermally, he was a chilly patient.
The patient was irritable by nature. He also had stress regarding his wife's health. During his younger years, he had stress regarding his job as he had a family to support.
The patient was also fastidious by nature.
Dr. Shah prescribed him research-based molecules after studying his case in detail.
The patient's complaints were significantly reduced within 6 weeks of homeopathic treatment.
Within 3 months of homeopathic treatment, he had reduced the dose of his conventional medicines and started taking the tablet once in 3 days.
After 5 months of homeopathic treatment, when the patient visited us on 14th February 2019, he had completely stopped taking conventional medicines for trigeminal neuralgia. He had experienced complete relief from the electric shock-like pains.
This case highlights that homeopathy can treat cases like trigeminal neuralgia causing severe pain in a short duration of time. Homeopathy also reduces the need for taking conventional medicines, thereby help avoid the side-effects of the same. Homeopathy treats trigeminal neuralgia effectively and safely without any side-effects.
