A 62-year-old woman came in for treatment of severe asthma. She had suffered from asthma more than 40 years and was currently using a steroid inhaler 3 to 4 times a day.
She began treatment on April 1, 2014, with:
CC10.1 Emergencies + CC15.1 Emotional & Mental tonic + CC19.1 Chest tonic + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic + CC19.6 Cough chronic + CC19.7 Throat chronic...QDS for 1 month, then reduce to TDS
After four weeks’ treatment, she reported she felt 50% better and had been able to reduce the inhaler use to BD. After five weeks’ treatment, on May 8, 2014, she came to see the practitioner to say that she had stopped using the inhaler and felt completely well. Nevertheless the practitioner asked her to continue the remedy BD for 6 months and then OD for life, given her long history of asthma. She is happy to continue OD.
