Covid-19 in a Man of 21

Written by Shraddha Samant

Dr. Shraddha Samant shares a case of Covid 19 in a man of 21. Intermittent cough, constant tickling in throat, cough while talking or attempting and aggravation from warmth were among the symptoms leading to the curative remedies.

Looking at the current pandemic situation, where there is panic due to unavailability of oxygen, shortages of ventilators, scarcities of hospital beds, and relatives of patients are running for Remdesivir and Tocilizumab injections. I would like to throw some light on the homeopathic way of treating Covid -19.

Homeopathy has a long history of supporting patients with influenza-like illnesses and respiratory symptoms and many doctors around the world are successfully using homeopathy alongside conventional medicine to treat the symptoms of COVID-19. Homeopathy is very effective when it is prescribed by trained healthcare professionals.

Clinical case treated by homeopathy – March 31st, 2021

Male, age 21 years

Diagnosed Covid -19 with RT-PCR

HR-CT showed Severity score 10/25

Oxygen level – 96%

First symptom he had was fever 100.6 followed by coryza and severe body ache. The next day it was followed by stomach upset and stools three to four times a day with semi solid consistency.

At this stage homeopathy was started with one dose of Influenzinum 1M.  Influenzinum nosode has the typical symptoms of pandemic fever with inflammation of respiratory mucous membranes.

This was followed by Gelsemium 200 4 times a day.  Gelsemium was prescribed based on muscular weakness, influenza, headache with muscular soreness of neck and shoulders, nasal discharge, swollen tonsils, burning throat, dry cough, fever. Also, dizziness, drowsiness, dullness and trembling. Dull heavy ache with heaviness of eyelids. Also, nervous diarrhea

Fever was settled in 24 hours and Oxygen level was up to 98%.

On the 5th day he was feeling mild fatigue, and dry cough was a new symptom.  The cough was intermittent, constant tickling in throat, cough while talking or attempting to speak, aggravation from warmth.

He told me that he wants to hold his chest while coughing.  On these symptoms I prescribed Drosera 200, hourly for 10 hours, then 4 times a day.  This helped him get rid of the dry cough in 36 hours.

April 10, 2021 – I prescribed Avena sativa mother tincture 10 drops in water twice a day help with the fatigue and to recover his appetite.

April 18, 2021 – He was fully recovered without the need of hospital admission.
