A 19-year-old male patient, Mr. R.J (PIN: 37244) from Mumbai visited Life Force’s Kemp’s Corner clinic in the month of June 2018 for the treatment of his frequent colds.
He was suffering from frequent colds for the past 3 years. He used to get episodes of cold three to four times a month. Once the cold would start, it used to last for three to four days. He would experience running nose and sneezing. A cough was bothering him occasionally. He used to have a complaint of nose block, particularly at night. Throat irritation was present occasionally. His cold used to increase after consuming cold food and drinks. Also, dust used to aggravate his complainant. He used to take allopathic medicines as and when required.
He had an average appetite. His thirst for water was intense. There were no issues with regards to his urine and stool. His sleep was sound, but it used to get disturbed when he would suffer from acute episodes of a cold.
The patient was studying in college. His father was a businessman, and his mother was a homemaker. He had one younger brother too. He had a very mild, gentle, and sober personality. He had reserved nature and was unable to mix easily with new people.
He never had any other major illnesses in the past. His father suffered from a similar problem of the frequent colds.
After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed him Calc carb 30 and some research-based homeopathic medicines.
On 7th August 2018, after two months of the treatment, there were no changes in his complaints. The patient had similar episodes of cold just like before. Running nose and sneezing were still as it is, but the intensity was less. He was suffering a cold, but he did not go for allopathic medicines to get relief from it. After noting this progress of the patient, Dr. Shah prescribed further medicines.
On 28th September 2018, the patient reported being almost 40% to 50% better with regards to his relief from the complaints. The frequency of his cold had reduced to two times in a month, which was initially four times a month. His overall health was better than earlier. He experienced no need to take any allopathic medicines.
On 5th November 2018, the patient was almost 50% to 60% better with the homeopathic medicines. His running nose and sneezing used to bother him hardly once a month with very less intensity than before.
On 24th December 2018, the patient was further better. He was almost 70% to 80% better now. The frequency of his cold had drastically reduced after taking homeopathic medicines. The patient no more needed to consume allopathic medicines after starting the treatment from Life Force Homeopathy. He was very happy and satisfied with the treatment.
He thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for helping him and improving his quality of life.
This case highlights that homeopathy is highly effective in treating frequent cold successfully and safely without any side-effects.
