Remarkable Recovery From Ankylosing Spondylitis With Homeopathy At Life Force
A 33-years-old man, Mr. L.R.B. (PIN 22153) visited Life Force Clinic on 8th January 2014. He was suffering from Ankylosing Spondylitis for the last 5 years. He complained of severe pain in the sacroiliac joint that led to the stiffness of the joint. He was experiencing difficulty in walking or sitting and, due to the continuous progress of Ankylosing Spondylitis, now he had started experiencing restricted movements. He was advised to go for Hip Replacement Surgery as the complaints were progressing rapidly from the last one year.
He was diagnosed with bone tuberculosis in 2008 for which he took AKT for a year.
There was a strong genetic link in his family, as his grandmother was also suffering from Ankylosing Spondylitis.
He was very fond of sour food and non-veg food, particularly the seafood and chicken, but, due to his illness, his appetite was reduced. Thermally, he was a chilly patient. His sleep was disturbed a lot due to the constant pain and discomfort.
Self And Family Set-Up:
He was a teacher by profession. Since childhood, he had experienced a financial problem, which made him dedicated towards his studies. He dreamt of becoming a teacher and he loved teaching, but, due to this health condition, he was not able to do his work efficiently and this disturbed him a lot. He felt bad as he wasn’t able to give his best to his profession.
He was very emotional and sensitive person. He was an introvert and never expressed his anger. He had lost his father one year back, and it had affected him a lot mentally and physically.
Dr. Shah studied the case in detail and prescribed research-based medicines to the patient. He was also given the necessary instructions regarding the diet and regimen and was advised to follow regular Physiotherapy/ Exercise.
On the first follow-up on 4th March 2014: He experienced a 15% improvement in his condition. His pain and stiffness had reduced. Also, his need of painkiller had tapered down, from having it every alternate day to just once in a week.
On the follow-up on 28th April 2014: He reported a further improvement in his condition, and he had not taken the painkiller once in the last two months, which was a big achievement in this case.
From July to September 2014: There was around 40- 50% improvement in the condition of the patient. The intensity and frequency of his pain had reduced a lot. He was not complaining about any restricted movement and stiffness of joints.
In November 2014: The patient came with an increase in pain due to the changes in the weather (i.e. the exposure to the cold). His case was again analyzed by Dr. Shah and medicines were given to him accordingly.
By May 2015, the patient reported a further improvement of 50%. He no more needed any painkiller or any local application for pain.
From July 2015 to June 2016: There was 60%-75% improvement in the condition of the patient, and this year he suffered no symptoms due to the weather changes.
From August 2016 to January 2018: The patient was doing very well, there was a continuous and significant improvement in his condition. All his symptoms were reduced by 75%-80% which is quite a remarkable improvement in the chronic case of Ankylosing Spondylitis.
This case is the perfect example illustrating the role of Homeopathy in treating the chronic condition like Ankylosing Spondylitis effectively and safely without any side-effects.
