A parent of a 3.5-years-old child was searching for a good treatment for his child’s asthmatic bronchitis. He came across the website of Dr. Shah. So, he enquired with our doctors and signed up online on 12th June 2011 for the treatment. Master R. D.’s (PIN 16223) questionnaire form was filled by his father. The questionnaire details are as follows.
He was suffering from frequent asthmatic bronchitis and allergic rhinitis for 11 months. His complaints would start with red eyes followed by the running nose and cough. If his cough was left unattended, he would suffer from wheezing and breathlessness. His pediatrician had started Seroflo inhaler twice a day for 6 months. On starting his inhaler pump, the wheezing had stopped and the eye redness had decreased by 50%. Now, he suffered from nose stuffiness, mucus accumulations, and throat congestion. He would often breathe through his mouth due to the blocked nose. He would also snore while sleeping. He was allergic to the perfumes, dust, incense sticks, and strong fragrances. His complaints would also get triggered by certain environmental and air allergens. He would sneeze at times with thick, greenish, or whitish discharges. His cough would generally increase while going to sleep or on waking. He would suffer from such episodes after every 30 to 40 days and would recover in 15 days on inhalers. His cold would get triggered by the cold things and sweets.
His appetite had increased. He liked the cold things and sweets. He disliked sour. He would sweat more in the sleep.
He was staying in a nuclear family. His parents were working in Telecom Company in sales and consultant.
He was active and playful. He would get angry when scolded or slapped. He would hit himself or hit back.
He had developed skin rashes with a mild fever at the age of one year for six months. It was diagnosed as viral and went away in six months.
His mother had an allergy with stuffed nose and difficulty in breathing since childhood, but never wheezing. His father suffered from some skin eruptions which used to occur every year with the change in weather.
Dr. Shah prescribed his research-based medicine for 2 months. The medicines were couriered to Delhi as he was residing there.
His first follow-up report was received on 2nd August 2011. When he started with our medicines, he was suffering from an acute episode and was taking the conventional medicines. He had to take it for a month. The complaints were as it is and had not deteriorated further. Dr. Shah upgraded the medicines for 4 months and sent them to him as he had then shifted to Singapore as his parents were transferred there.
His second follow-up report was received on 6th December 2011. His wheezing episode discomfort had reduced. The stuffy nose and discharge were as it is, but its intensity was less. He had recently developed another episode and was again put on a Seroflo inhaler and the other conventional medicines. The gap was the longest this time between these two major episodes of two months as compared to one month only. The intensity of all the complaints had been less as compared to the previous episodes. The medicines were then sent for 4 months to Singapore.
His third follow-up report was received on 27th March 2012. There was around 60% improvement in his condition. The wheezing episode had decreased by 60%. The stuffy nose, discharge, cough, and breathing difficulty was persistent in lesser intensity than earlier. He was off the steroid inhaler for a month and did not require it again. The other conventional medicines dose was also reducing. Dr. Shah further upgraded the medicines and sent for 4 months.
His father visited on 10th February 2014 to our Vashi clinic to start the treatment for Adenoids for his child. Master R. D. had turned 6-years-old and was free from wheezing and coughs. He had been diagnosed with adenoids 3 months ago. His frequent cold and coryza were completely relieved.
This case illustrates that homeopathy treats asthmatic bronchitis effectively and helps you to get rid of its discomfort and dependency on the conventional medicines.
