Bronchial asthma treated with Specialized Homeopathic Treatment

An interesting case of asthma came to us during an acute attack of asthma. He was breathless and he said that he feels he will die. He was in a very anxious state of mind.

He told us that the attack comes on when he is exposed to
  • Dust
  • Cob webs
  • Dust from books
  • Inhaling cold air

The complaints are worse from 10 pm to midnight. He feels very hot during the attack and there is also perspiration. He feels better if he eats something or drinks warm water. He takes sips of water frequently. The expectoration is sticky yellow, greenish and sometimes with a black tinge. The patient is suffering from asthma for the last 18 years; he is on bronchodilators but it relieves him only for a short time.

Besides this the patient suffers from hyperacidity which leads to headache. Along with this there is also spotty pain in the chest. This spotty pain is there since many years and it has remained the same.

These were the complaints that he wanted us to take care of. We asked him about stress and tensions that he has? He told us during the 1990s he lost his job. This period was very stressful as the loss of job led to a financial crisis. He was very stressed during this phase and this also affected his health a lot.

He got another job after a few months but there was lot of insecurity because this was not a permanent job. The salary was also less as compared to the previous job. Due to this there were constant thoughts about the future of his family and persistent thoughts of what will happen in the future.

He is very attached to his family. If someone in the family is unwell; he will be very anxious. If someone in the family comes home late then also there will be lot of anticipatory anxiety lot of negative thoughts come to his mind.

His relation with his wife is very good .He has two children with whom he is much attached. Another emotional shock was when his brother passed away due to cancer. Since then he has developed the fear that what will happen to his family if he suffers from cancer.

He is also very attached to his personal belongings and sharing them will be very difficult. He also preserves his old things which are of no use. He cannot throw away anything.

His childhood was peaceful and used to get along with people. He was above average in his studies. He is very sensitive by nature he won't express if he is hurt but there is no revengeful feeling.

Sometimes he gets angry and it is very difficult for him to control his anger. He throws things in anger most of the times he will like to stay alone and do his things.
