A 10-year-old child, Mast. A.S. (PIN: 39548) came to Life Force with complaints of Bronchitis. The patient was suffering from the discomforting symptoms of chronic bronchitis with a severe cough. He came to Life Force with the hope of recovery from his chronic bronchitis problem. The patient’s main concern was that he was tired of being on allopathy medicines and he was finding it difficult to cope with coughing.
The patient was suffering from the complaints for 1 year. He came with complaints of chronic bronchitis on 19th February 2019 and got enrolled with us to treat the same. He had no relief with the allopathic mode of treatment and was looking for permanent relief without any drug dependency. He had complaints of cough with whitish expectoration and blockage of the nose. The patient also had breathlessness with a nose block mainly at night. Due to such discomfort, the patient used to mouth breathing at night. Also, he was suffering from pain while coughing.
It was found that there was a genetic link to asthma in his case. The patient’s mother had complaints of asthma. His mother and brother both were suffering from asthmatic bronchitis, so there was a strong genetic link to his problem which needs to be addressed from the root. The patient was dependent on inhalers and steroids. The medicines that he followed from his allopathy doctor were as follows:
- Foracort Rotahaler (Budesonide (400 mcg) + Formoterol (6 mcg-Bronchodilator) BD since 1st March 2019.
- Tab. Azithral 1/2 tablet OD (Antibiotic) in the last 3 days
- Sinarest syrup in the last 3 days
- Septrin tablet (ayurvedic tablet) once/day for 2 months
He was tired of being on allopathic medicines with no trace of recovery. His dependency on allopathy had increased to a higher level. We decided to take his care and gradually taper off his allopathy medicines. And, that was a great relief to the patient.
The patient had an average appetite with a great craving for non-vegetarian food, particularly chicken. The patient generally constipated, and his stools were not satisfactory as he consumed only 1 liter of water daily. He enjoyed a sound sleep and used to be refreshed and alert in the morning.
The patient was quite intelligent in his studies and a very obedient child. He was happy with his parents and was growing up at the right pace. Also, the child was confident, expressive, and an athlete who loved sports and swimming. The only fear he had was of darkness. He was a caring and responsible child. His growing years have been stress-free and good.
In the past, the child had suffered from a major episode of Dengue when his immunity was low, and he was admitted to the hospital for medical treatment in 2016. Besides the chronic problem of bronchitis, he had no other problems and was completely fit and fine.
After studying his case history in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed appropriate homeopathic medicines to the patient.
We took his follow-ups at regular intervals, and he has been religiously taking homeopathy medicines without a break. The outcome was positive, and the patient improved in 6 months with 50% recovery from bronchitis.
We documented his recovery and path of progress in health and well-being with homeopathic treatment Life Force. His drug dependency had reduced to a greater extent, and he improved with his relief in the symptoms. His episodic attacks of cough no more bothered him for the next 3 months.
In 9 months, there was an excellent recovery of the patient from chronic bronchitis and he responded well to the treatment. We appreciate such patients who are dedicated to homeopathic medicine and give us that extra motivation to do better in treating the disease. Slowly and steadily in the past 1 year, his dependency on bronchodilators reduced completely and he improved with his relief in the discomforting symptoms. The expectation and prognosis of the treatment were great and the recovery was at a faster pace.
In the last 3 months, we included medicines in his treatment that improved his immunity. The immune booster worked as a maintenance dose in improving the child’s recovery from the tendency to develop a cough. We hope to treat more patients and children with chronic bronchitis. Recovery from bronchitis also improved his productivity in studies, and he was more alert and focused now. We continued with vitamin supplements for some time during the maintenance therapy which increased his immunity power and provided a protective shield to respiratory problems. We want more patients to recover from these chronic problems and get rid of the discomforting symptoms in the long run.
This case illustrates that homeopathy is highly effective in treating chronic bronchitis in children incredibly and safely without any side effects. Homeopathy promotes recovery from chronic bronchitis by eliminating the dependency on conventional medicines, boosts immunity, and heals the patient from within.
