A 47-years-old male, Mr. T.B.P. (PIN 19640) visited Life Force Clinic on 11th August 2012 for his complaints of vocal cord nodule.
Since almost 2 years, he was complaining of hoarseness of voice. Every time he had to clear his throat before talking. There was no pain, but it was very irritating for him particularly in the public meetings. He was treated with a number of antibiotics and even steroidal medications, but there was no improvement. On 10th August 2012, Laryngoscopy confirmed Right Vocal Cord Polyp. He was advised to go for a laser expulsion by the surgeon. But, he didn't want to go for surgery as he was scared of it. So, one of his friends suggested him about Life Force. So, he wanted to try Homeopathy, if it could help him out.
He was also a known hypertensive and was on conventional medicines for the same. He was not a smoker.
He preferred non-vegetarian food, and he and had a special craving for chicken and spicy food. His appetite was good. He had no problems with his stools and urine. Thermally, he preferred cold weather.
He was working as a Production Manager in a reputed pharmaceutical company. His wife was a homemaker, and he had a 4 years old son. He had no major stress in his life. He was anxious by nature. He was good at his work but would easily get anxious when the workload would increase. He also suffered from White Coat Syndrome i.e. whenever he would visit any doctor his Systolic Blood Pressure would increase.
Many years ago, he had the complaints of piles. In his family, his father was hypertensive and his mother had an underactive thyroid.
His case was studied in detail by Dr. Shah, and he was prescribed Causticum 30c.
After six weeks of the treatment on 17th September 2012, his vocal cord nodule was 20% better. His hoarseness of voice had also reduced. The relief from discomfort was better. He was again prescribed medicines for 2 months.
After 2 months on 20th October 2012, he reported that his complaints were as it is as compared to the previous follow-up. There was no significant improvement. His medicines were upgraded by Dr. Shah
After 6 weeks of the treatment on 26th December 2012, his relief from the complaints was 60% improved. The hoarseness of his voice was much better.
After 6 weeks on 23rd March 2012, his relief from the complaints of vocal cord nodule was further improved by about 80% better.
He was very happy with the significant improvement. His surgery could be averted. He is still continuing with the treatment for further improvement.
