A 65-year-old woman from the UK has been visiting her family in Malaysia for about six weeks in October every year for the past 30 years. In every visit, she gets a cold with severe cough and sinusitis on her arrival in Malaysia. She blamed it on travel fatigue and pollution. Her visits are always unpleasant especially because her family too would catch the bug and suffer. She treated herself with decongestants, antihistamines and paracetamol which added to her misery as they made her drowsy. She reached a point when she started dreading her annual visits since she would feel tired and drained of energy on her return to UK; this affected her work as a midwife. On 18 October 2015, three days prior to her trip to Malaysia, she started taking the following combo:
CC9.2 Infections acute + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic...BD
She continued to take the remedy throughout her stay. Further she had carried the same remedy for prevention to her family members but only some of them took it. To her pleasant surprise, for the first time in 30 years she did not develop symptoms of cold. Being free of allopathic medication, she was not drowsy, enabling her to thoroughly enjoy a family wedding. The family members who took the remedy were free of cold, but those who did not take it had to suffer. She continued to do well even upon her return to the UK and had good energy. Patient stopped the remedy on 5 April 2016. She attended to her work as part time midwife, even working night shifts without any problem. Her next trip to Malaysia was due in November 2016; the family requested her to bring the remedy for them all. She restarted vibro remedy before going and remained healthy during her stay. When seen on 10 October 2017, prior to her next annual trip in November, she was well with good quality of life and had no relapses of the cold or flu since the commencement of treatment in 2015. She was advised to start taking the remedies a month before her trip to Malaysia and continue for 3 months after her return. She also maintains a healthy life style, eats healthy food and has started attending yoga classes.
Editor’s comment: It is normally sufficient to start taking a remedy 3 days before the start of a trip.
