A 45-year-old man was diagnosed with sinusitis a year ago. He had repeated attacks of runny nose with foul smelling discharge that lasted for a week at a time and occurred every month during winter; during last year, he got at least 8 such episodes. He also had sinus headache that got triggered with cold weather or by drinking cold water/beverages. He never took any allopathic medicines but he went for homoeopathic treatment which brought him 20% relief in 2 months but he could not continue due to cost constraint. Instead, he opted for vibrionics and on 27 November 2017, he was given the following combo:
CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.5 Sinusitis…TDS
The patient was also advised to avoid cold beverages and ice-cream. After a month, the patient reported 50% reduction in the occurrence of headache and runny nose and 100% relief in terms of nasal discharge. In January 2018, the patient reported 100% recovery from all the symptoms. In fact, even when he travelled to a hill station in January, where the temperature was 3°C, he was comfortable with no attack of sinusitis. In Feb 2018, he got runny nose and headache only once and that too for just two days. The patient insisted on continuing the remedy at TDS as he doesn’t want to take any chances during the upcoming winter season. The patient had no recurrence of any symptoms in the preceding 4 months and continues to take the same dosage as of end June 2018.
