A 36-year-old male, the practitioner’s brother, had been suffering from dry cough, tightness in the chest, and breathing difficulty with mild wheezing since childhood. These occurred once every two to three months, usually triggered by the change of weather or exposure to dust. Each episode lasted for about a week while taking allopathic treatment. He was diagnosed with bronchitis and eight years ago, he was prescribed an Asthalin inhaler which gave him immediate relief. When the symptoms were severe, he took allopathic injections. He became dependent on these and so was worried about their side effects. Soon after his sister became a practitioner he sought her help and she posted the following remedy to him:
CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic + CC19.6 Cough chronic…6TD
When he started taking the remedy on 7 March 2020, he was having a dry cough and difficulty in breathing with mild wheezing. Even though his symptoms were becoming worse over the past three days, he decided not to take any allopathic medicine as he was keen to take just vibrionics. After four days he felt 30% relief in all his symptoms and in another two days this went up to 50% and he was able to cough out whitish phlegm. After two weeks on 26 March, he felt completely recovered, so the dosage was reduced to TDS. The patient was surprised at the recovery, without the need for allopathic intervention for the first time in his life. The dosage was then gradually tapered down to OD and finally to the maintenance dose of OW on 25 October. There has been no recurrence as of January 2021. He has also been taking IB, immunity booster for Covid at OD since July 2020.
