A 44-year-old male was suffering from frequent wheezing (breathing with a rattling sound in the chest) since birth. It was accompanied by runny nose, blocked nostrils, and headache. During childhood, his mother would rub “Vicks VapoRub” on his chest, temple, and around the nose to give him some relief. As he grew older he learnt to handle it himself and avoided going near paints, petrol, etc which triggered his wheezing. In the year 2000, when his symptoms became unbearable, he consulted a specialist. His condition was diagnosed as allergic rhinitis & bronchitis and he started taking allopathic medicines. For the past 12 years he has also been using nasal spray every day, as advised by his doctor. The treatment helped him to just manage his day-to-day life but did not give him complete relief. So he started looking for an alternative therapy.
On 13 January 2019, the practitioner gave the following remedy:
#1. CC19.1 Chest tonic + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic + CC19.4 Asthma attack…one dose every 10 minutes for 1 hour followed by 6TD
He continued to take allopathic medicines. When he came after 4 weeks on 10 February, he looked desperate as there was not much relief from any of the symptoms. But he was sure he wanted to continue with vibrionics.
The practitioner enhanced #1 to:
#2. CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + #1…6TD
On his next visit after a month, on 10 March he reported that all his symptoms had gradually receded. For the past one week he had no episode of wheezing, runny nose, blocked nostrils, or headache, and therefore he had stopped the allopathic medicines including nasal spray. The practitioner noticed that he could breathe easily without any difficulty. The dosage of 6TD was continued.
On 21 April 2019, after an uneventful 6 weeks, #2 was enhanced to build his immunity, but at a reduced dosage:
#3. CC12.1 Adult tonic + #2…TDS
After 3 weeks, as the patient was doing fine, dosage of #3 was further reduced to OD. On 16 June 2019, #3 was stopped and #2 was resumed at a reduced dosage of 3TW, to be gradually tapered down to OW.
The practitioner also added:
#4. CC12.1 Adult tonic…TDS for a month to be alternated with #5 CC17.2 Cleansing, for the next one year, to build up his immunity.
Editor’s note: As 6TD is meant to tide over an acute phase, the dosage of #2 should have been reduced to TDS at the time of patient’s visit on 10 March.
