A 22-year-old man with chronic asthma for 12 years contacted the practitioner on 5 March 2016. During the night his breathing was laboured but during the day, he only had slight difficulty in breathing. His asthma became worse when he had cold or cough and sometimes he developed even chest pain. In spite of using allopathic medicines including an inhaler for the past 12 years, the asthma persisted. It was thought that allergens like dust and pollen were the triggers for his asthma. He was given the following combo:
CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic + CC19.4 Asthma attack…TDS
Patient was not on any allopathic medication except for the inhaler as needed. On the second day there was aggravation of his symptoms, lasting for about two weeks. However, the patient persisted with the combo. Gradually the frequency of asthma attacks reduced and improvement was observed. At the end of eight weeks, to the patient's amazement, there was 100% improvement. He continued with the remedy for two more weeks and then stopped. He continued to do well. At a recent review, it was found that he has not needed the inhaler at all as he had no recurrence of his debilitating attacks.
