Creating Waves of Awareness
When Mr. H. entered hurriedly to my consulting room, I thought it is a case of exopthalmos due to hyperthyroidism, because his facial expression and behavior was almost same! But, I was totally wrong! It was his horrible situation that changed his expression. His both nostrils were completely blocked since almost three to four months due to ethmoidal nasal polyps. He was unable to breath through the nose, and there was no sense of smell since many days.
His voice was also changed due to nasal tone. He often gives public speeches on religious subjects, but due to this problem, he kept all his activities pending. He often felt bad when people asked about the protruding mass from the nose. He had been to various ENT surgeons, but there was no change even after trying anti-allergic medicines, nasal drops, and a very costly foreign nasal spray imported. The same situation continued even after changing the prescriptions. Finally, as usual, the surgeon suggested surgery as the last resort.
Picture taken during 1st consultation.
The patient agreed to do surgery, but only after the month of Ramadan, because he does not want any constraints to perform holy fasting. The reason why he consulted me was, until his date of surgery, he needed some sort of relief from the visible swelling and nasal obstruction.
Considering the presenting complaints and his strong demand, I prescribed Teucrium Marum 30, three doses in sugar of milk, along with one dram of placebo pills. I asked him to stop all medicines, drops and nasal spray prescribed by the ENT surgeon. He followed my advice strictly, and took the doses in three consecutive days, and came back after 7 days.
The polyp was reduced in size, and the obstruction was less. I again prescribed placebo and asked him to come after seven days.
After seven days he came back with a pleasant smile. To my surprise, I could not see the polyps on either side! Also his voice was almost normal. His facial expression was also normal (Please compare the expression of his eyes in the pictures). Now he can breathe through the nose, and he started giving his religious speeches as usual.
Now his treatment is going on. I have to find out his constitutional remedy to give him maximum result, or else the same story will repeat again. I am sure, if the same improvement continues, he will not waste money for an unnecessary surgery. And, now, the reason why a few doctors are against Homeopathy is very clear – Homeopathy is a real threat for those business-minded people!
