She was on antacids which does not relieve her burning pain at all.

Along with this, she suffered from chronic constipation since 15 years. She had to take laxatives to pass stools, and had to strain to pass soft stools.

He had a few relapses in the last 2 years. On examination, his urine appeared frothy. His urine protein fluctuated between trace to ++++. His symptoms increased with acute Upper Respiratory Tract Infection.

Along with nephrotic syndrome, he had suffered from upper respiratory tract infection since two months. He had cold and nose congestion. All his respiratory symptoms aggravated at night. He had an average appetite. He was very fond of salty food, sweets and pickles. He was averse to curd. He had profuse perspiration on his scalp. He had sleep disturbances due to the constant coughing. Thirst was diminished.

He was not able to tolerate cold at all. He resided with his parents in a joint family. He was a restless. He was very talkative and used to get angry easily. He used to throw things whenever he used to get angry. He was very stubborn and destructive.

Case 7 - Bronchial Asthma

Top

Mrs. H. E (Reg Num 5165), a female patient aged 33 years reported to the clinic for the treatment of her Bronchial Asthma which she had for the last 9 years. She had been on bronchodilator puffs and oral medicines for the last 9 years but in spite of this, she was never completely relieved from the complaints.

Once in a month she would get a severe attack of breathlessness, the attacks would aggravate in winters, although she would daily take the medicines for asthma as prescribed by her physician. Her breathlessness would be worse from the least exertion, on climbing stairs, early morning, from dust, pungent odors and after 4pm. She would also have bouts of cough without much of expectoration. Her cough would get worse on lying down and she had to sit up for relief. She also had incontinence of urine during the episodes of cough.

She was an obese female with a puffed-up face and had gained weight since 4-5 years. The excess weight gain had occurred after taking steroids for asthma. There was puffiness of the hands and feet. She had become lethargic since a few months and had developed indifference to work.

Her appetite had reduced and so had her thirst. She liked spicy and mixed taste, was not fond of sweets and milk. Her sweat was scanty, with no particular odor. Her menses would be scanty lasting only for a day and they would always be delayed by 2-3 weeks. She would be very irritable before menses and would have backache during menses.

She was a housewife and stayed with her husband and two sons. There was a lot of anxiety about her family. She had the tendency to weep at trifles. She was quite fastidious in nature and would be very particular about the way work should be done.

She had suffered from jaundice in the past. In her family there was history of ischemic heart disease (father) and thyroid disorder (mother).

Based on the above history, she was started on homeopathic treatment for the asthma and her other complaints. She was prescribed a drug called Arsenic Album 200 and within 6 months of treatment, her complaints of cough and breathlessness were much better than before. She was able to reduce and later stop the use of her inhalers within a span of 6-8 months. Her physician also reduced the dosage of bronchodilator drugs to the minimum. Her dependence on steroid puffs was completely eliminated. She became much more active than before and did not have the constant lethargic feeling anymore.

This case illustrates that how homeopathy can be of great help even in those cases where the conventional medicines fail to provide adequate relief. This patient would experience constant breathlessness in spite of being on conventional medicines but after starting homeopathic treatment she was able to overcome her dependence on the conventional medicines and got significant relief from the symptoms at the same time.
