Your Story, Our Journey: A 4yr old child suffering from Asthma

Share on:   

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition characterized by airway hyper-responsiveness to a variety of stimuli largely of allergic origin with reversible airflow limitation, symptoms of asthma exhibited are wheezing, shortness of breath and cough. It is a major cause of impaired quality of life with impact on work and recreational as well as physical activities and emotions.

Asthma is one of the major public health problems for the developed and developing countries. Worldwide, it is estimated that 300 million people are affected with bronchial asthma. India has an estimated 15-20 million asthmatics with a prevalence of about 10% and 15% in 5 to 11 years old children. Its prevalence is increasing despite the recent advances in its management including understanding the inflammatory nature of the disease, use of steroids with add-on long acting bronchodilators, use of devices to deliver the medications more appropriately and appreciation of the value of self-management education.

At Healing Harmony, we provide tailor made homeopathic holistic solutions. We combine Homeopathic treatment, with yoga, diet and other holistic therapies to provide lasting relief and cure.

The below case of a 4 years old child suffering from asthma was managed with Phosphorus.  Her inhalers and frequent courses of antibiotics were stopped as soon as her homeopathic management was initiated.

  • The child had allergies of soft toys, dust, pollution. Her cough was hard and painful. She had severe wheezing and congestion in lungs. She described a heaviness in her chest along with difficulty in breathing during the attacks. Every change of weather affected her
  • She was pale looking and fair skinned.
  • She is intensely sympathetic and acutely sensitive to mood, atmosphere and all sensory impressions.
  • She was very affectionate child and would care for everyone in the family.
  • Phosphorus* was prescribed to the child in infrequent doses and varying potencies based on child’s physical & mental state. Along with medicines, she was advised yoga and healthy diet.

60% of her respiratory complaints were better within 24 hrs after the medicine. The child received regular treatment for 1 year and is now 100% better and living a healthy life. She is off inhalers completely and her immunity is much stronger.

*Please note the treatment in homeopathy is very individualistic and holistic which means it is patient centric and not disease centric. The remedy Phosphorus should not be used in all cases of Asthma unless indicated based on patient’s physical and mental make-up.
