A 3-year-old boy had repeated attacks of upper respiratory infection with runny nose, cough with sputum difficult to expectorate and sore throat for the past 2 years. These symptoms occurred almost every month and lasted for a week. The patient had 8-9 such episodes per year. The child did not have asthma but was allergic to dust. The doctor would prescribe antibiotics only when the fever was high. Once the child was hospitalized with bronchopneumonia and was on IV antibiotics. At that time, the doctor told the parents that the child’s immunity had been compromised due to repeated use of antibiotics.
On 28 November 2017, the boy was brought to the practitioner who gave the following:
CC12.2 Child tonic + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies…TDS
After one month, the mother estimated the improvement to be 50%, the child had low fever (<100F) once and it lasted for 4 days. After another 2 months in Feb 2018, there was another episode of fever lasting for 3 days. There has been no need to take antibiotics or any other allopathic medicine throughout. On 3 April 2018, the dosage was reduced to OD. Towards the end of April, he had just one bout of sneezing soon after he participated in water sports but there were no other symptoms. As of June 2018, he is continuing on maintenance dosage of OD and there has been no recurrence of any symptoms. The mother has reported complete recovery and they are both very happy with the result.
