My Turning Point towards Homoeo[athy

My Turning Point
Dr Prasad Rasal
When I was in 4th BHMS, and working in a private orthopedic hospital at Pune, I came across a female co-worker suffering from severe chronic asthmatic bronchitis. She was just attending her duty without actually doing her work. She was already on Prednisolone 10 mg BD, Deriphylin R 300 mg BD, Ventorlin BD and changing antibiotics, since long without any result. She used to come for duty, but whole day, she sat in Knee-chest position with great dyspnoea.
I asked my Sir, how have you continued her on duty?
He explained that, she was working in this hospital right from the time hospital opened. That’s why, I have still kept her.
So I asked, shall I give Homoeopathic medicine to her?
He said, why not?
This was the first chance in my life, to take a homoeopathic case, personally. So, I revised case taking methods and the case which I took was as follows:

5. Sulph 10/5
Miasmatic Interpretation

Homoeopathic Management
A) Avoid misri (no reference given earlier).
B) Steam inhalation.
Medicinal Treatment:
As I was a student , I hesitated to prescribe Nosode as a First Prescription and was in a lot of dilemma regarding potency selection. Still, after discussion with seniors and colleagues, we decided to give nosode as a first prescription, cautioning her about homoeopathic aggravation.
I selected, Medorrhinum 200-1 dose with Placebo for 10 days.
Follow up
02/01/89 : Amazing thing happened after taking a dose of Medorrhinum. She felt absolutely relaxed immediately, which she could not in previous 10 years. She started moving about without any disturbance. Cough stopped completely.
02/12/89 : Absolute no breathlessness. Working with full confidence and strength.
Weakness disappeared. Thereafter, I was there for 2 years in same hospital, but I never noticed a recurrence. Even today, she is asymptomatic and enjoying her life.
So, because my father was a senior allopath, I had taken admission to get label of a doctor and not a homoeopath. It was only after getting confirmation about the efficacy of homoeopathy through personal experience that I got converted to Homoeopathy. Today, I am practicing successfully since last 28 years.
