9 years old girl was reported with complaints of frequent colds and throat infections since childhood The attacks would begin with irritation in the throat and she would develop pain in the throat.
This is the case of Baby. M.A (Patient Ref. No. S-4325) a 9 years old girl who was brought to the clinic with the complaints of frequent colds and throat infections since childhood. She would get these attacks once every 2-3 months and the attacks would last about one week. The attacks would begin with irritation in the throat and she would develop pain in the throat. The pain would radiate to the ears and she would experience difficulty in eating and drinking during these attacks. She would occasionally develop fever with these complaints. She would also develop frequent colds wherein she would experience nose block and severe bouts of sneezing. Her complaints would get worse with cold food and drinks, in winter and after taking curds.
Her ENT doctor had strongly suggested to get the tonsils removed for which her parents were not ready. They chose to try homeopathy.
She was fond of chocolates, pastas, cheese and Chinese food. Her thirst was decreased. She would be frequently constipated. Sleep was good but she had history of getting fearful dreams. She was a pleasant child but would occasionally get irritated. Would not mix up easily with others and would take time for the same. She would feel hurt easily. She had fear of being alone and of darkness. She loved music and singing.
There was a strong history of frequent colds and allergies in the family (parents and grandfather and uncle).
On examination, she was found to have enlarged and inflamed tonsils. Marked congestion of the throat was noted.
Based on this study of her case, she was prescribed Calcarea carbonicum 200 along with a dose of Tuberculinum. She improved remarkably with the treatment and within one year of the homoeopathic treatment, the frequency as well as the intensity of her attacks was brought down. She would not require antibiotics anymore for her complaints. Her immunity was much better than before and she could now take cold food and drinks without fear of getting another attack of tonsillitis. Also she became much more tolerant of the weather changes and would not get frequent tonsillitis as before.
This is one of over 300 cases documented at our center, illustrating how homeopathy helps avoid surgery in most cases of frequent tonsillitis.
