A man aged 53 came in for treatment of dyspnea (shortness of breath) on 11 February 2015. He ran a tailoring shop. He used to be a heavy smoker but had quit smoking four years earlier. In the past, he had suffered from asthma attacks, which were well controlled with allopathic medication. But two months ago, he began to experience severe breathlessness with the slightest exertion. Antihistamines and inhalers did not help. Even walking a few steps was difficult. He felt very tired, lacked energy and stopped going to work. He was seen by a physician in general practice and then a cardiologist. All tests were normal. Finally, his physician prescribed a mucolytic agent to clear any excess phlegm from his lungs. This also did not help.
The patient had his own explanation for the breathlessness. He believed that some people wishing him harm had put a curse on him. He had found tell-tale signs of black magic in his garden. His family and friends agreed with him. The patient was very worried, but the practitioner reassured him and asked him to trust in God. She prescribed:
#1. CC3.4 Heart emergencies + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + CC17.2 Cleansing + CC17.3 Brain & Memory tonic + CC18.1 Brain disabilities + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic...in water to be sipped every ten minutes throughout the day.
#2. CC3.7 Circulation + #1...6TD
The patient was asked to start taking #1 alone. After two days’ treatment, he reported a 30% improvement in the breathlessness, and was asked to discontinue #1 and to begin taking #2. In two days’s time, he felt 50% better and went back to work. He continued to improve and could walk much more. After a week, he noticed that while walking to his shop, he felt breathless only once, whereas previously he had been forced to make several stops on the way to catch his breath. He stopped the mucolytic agent prescribed by the doctor. After another week, he reported that at last he felt normal. When walking to his shop, he did not feel breathless nor did he need to stop and rest even once. On 27 February 2015, he reported that he was completely recovered.
The practitioner advised the patient to continue taking the remedy 6TD for one more week, then TDS for two weeks followed by OD for two weeks before stopping. However, patient stopped the vibro after only two weeks as he felt well.
In May he became severely ill again with breathlessness and had to be hospitalised. A chest physician diagnosed COPD. The patient’s lung function had been compromised by his smoking, which he had given up only in recent years. As of October 2015, the patient continues to do well and leads a normal life.
This report demonstrates how Vibrionics helped in an acute case of breathlessness where other medicines did not work. For a patient of COPD, it is essential that vibro treatment should be continued over a long period.
