A 27-years-old female, Mrs. C.D. (PIN 3712) visited Life Force on 12th Feb 2001 for the complaints of recurrent asthmatic bronchitis and attack of asthma which she would suffer for two to three times in a week since her childhood. Her asthma attacks were more during the winter season. She also used to suffer from acute attacks of recurrent colds, every three months, which used to last for 8 to 10 days. She would always require a long course of antibiotics, and she was on the regular use of bronchodilator in the form of inhalers once in a day.
She had a strong family history of asthma and other auto-immune diseases like diabetes.
Her asthma used to get worse after having outside food and with the onset of acute respiratory tract infections. During the acute attacks, she used to get throat pain, sneezing with thick yellowish white nasal discharge, and severe cough with expectoration along with difficult expectoration.
She also used to get recurrent attacks of a migraine, which were of hammering, beating type associated with general weakness, for one year. It used to increase after stress and due to inadequate sleep. She would get such episodes 3 to 4 times in a week and for almost 2 to 3 hours of duration.
On examination, her chest was found to have moist sounds (crepitations) suggestive of lung congestion. She was investigated for blood profile and X-Ray of the chest. She was diagnosed as a case of Bronchial Asthma by Dr. Rajesh Shah.
She was a cheerful and active person. She used to get easily irritated by contradiction as well as on the small matters. She would have flushing on the face during anger and excitement. She was also going under financial stress in her life. She observed to have strong willpower, sense of self-respect and self-confidence.
Dr. Rajesh Shah studied her case in detail and prescribed her Ferrum met 200c in suitable repetition. She was under treatment at Life Force for about 2 years with regular follow-ups, and slowly but steadily her complaints improved.
Under Dr. Shah’s treatment, her need for bronchodilators and antibiotics reduced significantly. She reported on 12th March 2003 stating that she was completely free from asthma and she was disease-free even during the winter. Her complaints of a migraine also had reduced to the point to be negligible. Dr. Shah advised her to stop the treatment.
Now, after 10 long years on 25th July 2011, when she again visited Life Force for treatment of her relative, she mentioned Asthma and Migraine as her past medical history.
This case highlights that homeopathy can promote complete recovery from conditions like asthma and migraine successfully and safely without any side-effects.
