A 45-year-old man, a school teacher, who was just developing a fever with runny nose and congestion contacted the practitioner on the 28th of January 2015. He was given:
CC9.2 Infections acute + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.3 Chest chronic + CC19.6 Cough chronic + CC19.7 Throat chronic...6TD
He was advised to intake plenty of water for three days.
After a day he started to feel less congested, and there was 50% and 75% improvement with reference to fever and runny nose respectively. After two days he displayed further signs of improvement as his fever had subsided completely, nose was not runny anymore and on the congestion front, there was a vast improvement by 90%. After three days his congestion also had cleared completely. He then stopped the treatment and was able to resume his normal activities. The patient did not take any other medication for his illness. Since then, the patient has taken this remedy on multiple occasions when he suffered a flu attack and each time he was healed in two-three days.
In Canada, cold and flu are much prevalent, and it usually takes a week or two for the symptoms to clear. This patient has been keeping a constant supply of this remedy for himself as well as for others in his household, which has proven to be very effective.
It is always advised that a patient consults the practitioner before sharing ones remedy with other individuals. This ensures that the patient gets the most appropriate remedy for his illness and is also cautioned about a possible pullout. In this case, where Flu seems to be a common occurrence in the household, it was a wise decision to keep the remedy handy for family use.
