A 35-years-old patient named Mr. S.S (PIN 27964) visited Chembur clinic on 15th February 2016 with a complaint of ankylosing spondylitis.
The patient was suffering from this complaint since two to three years. He was suffering from pain in his back daily. His pain used to remain constant. Also, there was stiffness in his back. Besides this, he was suffering from bilateral knee pain since a few days. He was unable to flex his knees due to the pain. His pain used to increase in the morning and would be better after doing the continuous movement. He also did blood investigation for ankylosis, and it was positive. He was on allopathic medicines. He took painkillers, but nothing gave him relief.
He had an average appetite. He loved to eat red meat. His thirst was average. He had average perspiration, but his sweat was offensive. There were no complaints with his stool and urine. Also, his sleep was sound.
He was working in an event management company. His wife was a housemaker. He had one son and two daughters.
His life was very happy and joyful in his childhood. He had stress regarding his family. He was very reserved kind of person. He did not express much about himself. Also, he had anxious and suspicious nature. He had short tempered nature. He used to get angry very easily.
He did not have any major illnesses in the past. His father had heart problem and mother was suffering from diabetes mellitus.
With all these case details, his case was analyzed by Dr. Shah and he was prescribed some research-based medicines.
On 30th March 2016, the patient called up and reported that his condition was as it is. There were no major changes in his complaints. He was busy and was in a hurry so he did not give detailed feedback. On whatever feedback the patient gave, further medicines were prescribed to him by Dr. Shah.
On 23rd May 2016, patient visited the clinic for the feedback. He reported that his complaints were almost 50% better since starting the homeopathic treatment. His back pain was better by 50%. His stiffness in the back was better. His knee pain was also better by 50%. The patient was overall better after taking homeopathic medicines from us.
On 23rd July 2016, the patient called up and reported that his condition was as it is. There is no further improvement. He was the same i.e. 50% better as before. His condition was stable now. He was in hurry so did not give feedback in detail. On whatever feedback the patient gave, further medicines were prescribed to him by Dr. Shah.
On 29th September 2016, the patient reported that he was feeling 95% better in his complaints. His back and knee pain were better by 95%. The stiffness was almost nil now. The patient was able to flex his knees now, which he was unable to do before. He had stopped all his allopathic medicines, and he was completely on homeopathic medicines now. The patient said, “Before treatment, I was not feeling hungry, was losing weight, and had lack of sleep; now I am happy and healthy and I have gained weight”. The patient was very happy with the treatment. His pains were completely fine now. He was able to do his day-to-day activities, which was very difficult for him previously.
The patient was very contented and happy with the treatment. He was very thankful to Dr. Shah and the Life Force team, who helped him to obtain a great relief from his problem. He is still continuing with our treatment to get completely cured of his complaints.
This case highlights that ankylosing spondylitis can be treated effectively and safely with homeopathy. Homeopathy not only provides you a great relief from the discomfort resulting due to ankylosing spondylitis but also eliminates your dependency on allopathic medicines.
