An 11-year-old girl had been suffering from runny nose, irritable throat with cough, breathing difficulty, wheezing and ear pain on a daily basis since early childhood. Her condition worsened during change of weather and when exposed to pollution. She had been taking allopathic medicines and used a nebulizer when the symptoms were severe but these provided only temporary relief.
She also had nasal blockage due to adenoids which were growing and causing pain from the ear down to the jaw; the doctor advised surgery. On 13 Aug 2019, her mother took the girl to the practitioner who gave:
#1. CC5.1 Ear infections + CC9.2 Infections acute + CC10.1 Emergencies + CC12.2 Child tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC19.2 Respiratory allergies + CC19.3 Chest infections chronic + CC19.5 Sinusitis…TDS
And for emergencies:
#2. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC19.4 Asthma attack…every ten minutes for an hour and if no improvement, for another hour, then 6TD for three days and if needed TDS for three days and OD for three days.
The patient was advised to keep her surroundings clean and avoid exposure to pollution, practise regular pranayama, and avoid taking cold water, refrigerated foods and sweets.
After two weeks there was 30% improvement in runny nose, irritable throat, cough, nasal blockage and wheezing and 40% improvement in ear pain. In another two weeks, the improvement went up to 60% and 50% respectively. After starting the above remedy she did not take allopathic medicines but did use the nebulizer a few times.
After another month, there was 90% relief in all her symptoms. She took #2 during the first month only, thereafter it was not required.
In the third week of November, the mother delightfully informed that her daughter did not use the nebulizer for the past one month and was pleasantly surprised that her condition was under control even during the winter season.
In Jan 2020, five months after starting the remedy, she was 100% free of all symptoms. On 22 Feb, the dosage of #1 was reduced to BD for a month and then tapered off to zero by 20 Aug. As of 20 May 2022, there has been no recurrence.
