Successful Treatment Of Interstitial Lung Disease By Homoeopathy
The totality of the patient guided towards the selection of Arsenicum Album. She was prescribed Arsenicum Album on 8/1/2013.
15/1/13- Patient reported improvement generally. Her cough, breathlessness and weakness were better. Appetite improved. Cough < lying on right side. Same medicine continued.
1/2/13- cough better but troubles off and on. Same medicine continued.
5/3/13- Patient was much better with arsenicum album.
4/4/13 – The complaints recurred off and on. The case was reanalysed and patient was advised deep breathing exercises. Sulphur was given as recurring and relapsing nature of complaints was there.
5/5/13- Patient felt much better this time. This time she felt as if she is free from illness, her strength returned. She was leading normal life after many years and was regularly doing deep breathing exercises. Same medicine continued.
20/5/13- Patient developed paroxysmal sneezing, watery nasal discharge, headache, sore throat after eating sour mango seeds. Patient was fond of mangoes. She was prescribed Aconite. Sulphur was given as SOS for cough.
25/5/13- Patient recovered nicely and didn’t need sulphur. She felt better again.
Patient continued homoeopathic treatment for another 6 months and came to clinic every month for check-up. She had occasional knee pain and right shoulder pain for which Rhus tox or Bryonia were prescribed off and on.
5/1/14- Patient came with severe cough and breathlessness after exposure to cold draft of wind while she was attending a wedding. She was prescribed Sulphur 30.
10/1/14- Not much improvement. She required nebulisation with Asthelin. Sulphur 200 was prescribed. ( As sulphur 30 gave her lasting relief earlier, hence it was given in higher potency this time).
13/1/14- General condition much better. Cough was much better.
Patient is reviewed every month for chest examination and general check-up. She is doing well and improvement is lasting with occasional sneezing and sore throat and knee pain.
The case again reinforces that the patient should be treated holistically and not merely based on diagnosis.
The seemingly resistant and incurable ILD is cured with mild homoeopathic treatment where the aggressive multiplex of antibiotics and other medications failed. The homoeopathic concept of disease being nothing but a disturbance in the vital force individual to the sick person is true to the best and hence can only be corrected when the derangement of the vital force ( life energy) is rectified by homoeopathic patient specific medicine.
