A 48-year-old male was using an inhaler once a day for relief from his asthma attacks for the past 14 years. The frequency of using the inhaler increased over the past 2 years to thrice a day. He felt breathless on climbing stairs, after having a meal or walking even a short distance. His condition worsened during the first half of September 2018 when he was hospitalised for a few days. The test reports indicated moderate obstruction in his lungs for which he took allopathic medicines.
Not wanting to be dependent on allopathic medicines which did not give much relief anyway, he approached the practitioner on 25 September 2018. He was given:
CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC19.1 Chest tonic + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic + CC19.4 Asthma attack…one dose every 10 minutes for one hour followed by 6TD
The patient reported after 3 days that the intensity and duration of breathlessness had reduced by 30%; he could breathe better. A week later his breathing became normal and he conveyed that he had stopped using the inhaler. So, the dosage was reduced to TDS. After another week he could walk comfortably, climb stairs, and eat without feeling breathless. The dosage was reduced to BD and continued for 6 months to suit the comfort level of the patient. In April 2019 the patient’s test reports revealed clear lungs. Since none of his symptoms had recurred, the dosage was reduced to OD and after 6 months to OW on 10 October 2019. He was given CC12.1 Adult tonic…TDS for a month to be alternated with CC17.2 Cleansing for a year as a preventive measure.
Editor’s comment: CC19.1 Chest tonic was not necessary as it is already included in both CC19.2 and CC19.3.
