From its very infancy homoeopathy has faced sharp opposition. The inventor Dr. S. F. Hahnemann was forbidden to practice his new science with the medicines prepared by him personally. God knows what had had happened of Dr. Hahnemann and the homoeopathic science had he not been allowed settle and practice homoeopathy by the medicines prepared by his own method in Kothen by the Duke Ferdinand of Anhalt, Kothen, who was earlier treated by Dr. Hahnemann.
It is the human nature to criticize others without a least effort to investigate the truth. If some cleric or leader issues a fatva (verdict), may be due to some vested interest the followers start a hue and cry without using their brain i. e. without a least effort to investigate the truth. The same mentality is working behind the opposition of homoeopathy since the time of Dr. Hahnemann.
It is also in the nature of man to look into his own interests only, he opposes every such move which does not suit to or fulfils his own interests. Contrary to this there are only few people who has broadmindedness and remain inclined to do something which is beneficial others or the humanity. Dr. C. S. F. Hahnemann was one of such people who invented Homoeopathy for the benefit of humanity suffering from various diseases. The laws of homoeopathy are natural and universal laws.
For the past forty years I am trying to treat people suffering from various kinds of diseases including acute, chronic and complicated cases. Even cases of various cancers responded well to this treatment.
Here under I am presenting a case of ACUTE ORTHOPNOEA completely cured for now seventeen years.
On 29th April 1992 a gentleman came to me at 9:30 p. m. He asked me to accompany him to see his wife who is unable to breathe since 5:30 p. m. I suggested him to consult the in-charge of a Nursing Home nearby, who has proper facilities. In such an emergent case I, as a general practitioner, may not be of any help. But he insisted me to see her as she wants homoeopathic medicine.
So very reluctantly I accompanied him. The condition of the lady was as follows:
• She was sitting motionless on the sofa straight like a statue, one leg on the sofa and the other hanging down.
• Her face was ash white and emotionless.
• She was so motionless that it was not appearing she was breathing.
• She was drenched in perspiration below the neck.
• Fan was intolerable.
• Tongue milky white.
• Could hardly speak in whispers.
• She had been suffering with such episodes for the past three years.
In such a state I was feeling help less yet I administered a dose of Carbo vegetabilis 200 and began to watch the effect of the dose.
Mean while her mother told that she often gets attacks of eosinophia.
His information was a clue for me. In the past I had seen Cina work like a magic in cases where the eosinophil count was high so, I immediately put a dose of Cina 200 (4 globules of size No. 10) on her tongue and asked her mother to bring half cup of warm water. I put another dose of Cina 200 in the water and stirred it well. I started giving her half teaspoon of this solution every 5 minutes. After two doses of this solution she drew a deep breath like a sigh and moved her leg down from sofa and rested her back with the back of sofa. By this development I felt relieved. With in the next half an hour she felt much as ease.
At this I instructed her husband to make a pile of pillows and quilt so that she may rest her head on the pile and could take rest as it was not expected that she would be able to lie down. After instructing them to give the solution of Cina frequently and to report in the morning, I left for my home.
In the morning her husband reported that she became able to lie down in the bed at about 1 a. m. At 4 a. m. she went to the bathroom herself with little support. And she was feeling much better in the morning.
Few more doses of Cina 200 were given and by 7th May 1992 she was quite well.
She had slight relapse on17thJuly 1993 and 4th April 1994 every time Cina 200 promptly set her right. After that she never had a relapse to this day December 2009 as her husband told me recently who came for consultation for his son.
N. B. – After administering Cina I searched Materia Medica by various writers e. g. Allen, Clarke, Hering and Kent etc. but did not find the above related condition in any of these Materia Medicas. But Cina cured this condition; therefore the inference is Cina has this condition in its pathogenesis. Sometimes we find a new thing by chance.
