Complete recovery with Homeopathy in a case of Abscess where surgery was advised

68-years-old Mrs. J. M. (PIN 21858) was already taking treatment for multiple complaints, such as asthma, hair fall, lumbar spondylitis, sleeplessness, and headache.

She developed an acute complaint of an abscess on her upper back. She reported this on 3rd February 2014. There was a large abscess of about 4x1 cm in size. There was thick greenish discharge from the abscess and it was painful. She had taken a course of antibiotics for 10 days with little relief. When she consulted a surgeon, he advised surgical intervention.

Since she was reluctant to undergo incision and drainage by the surgeon, she checked the homeopathic option at Life Force as she was undergoing treatment for other ailments. Dr. Shah saw her and asked her to go for surgery as the abscess was a bit large. Actually, at Life Force, Dr. Shah does not treat acute disease. The patient insisted to take homeopathy.

She was a vegetarian and liked eating sweets and milk. She had no specific dislikes. She consumed two liters of water daily. Her bowel movement, urine, and perspiration were normal. She preferred warm weather. She was anxious and affectionate by nature. She liked everything in order or else she would get upset. She had undergone hysterectomy 33 years back and knee replacement surgery one year back. Her mother and brother also suffered from asthma. 

Dr. Shah studied the case in detail and prescribed her some well-known medicines comparable with antibiotics for the conditions like abscess and suppuration. Some of the medicines considered for her condition were Hepar Sulphuricum, Silica, Calcarea Sulphuricum, Mercurius Solubilis, Kali Bichromicum, and Dr. Shah’s research-based homeopathic medicines.

Dr. Shah prescribed the medicine for two days and asked her to come for review. He said that if she responded to the medicine, the treatment would be continued; or else she would be suggested to opt for the surgery.

She reported back on 7th February 2014. She showed around 50% improvement. The redness, swelling, and discharge had reduced significantly. Her surgeon reported that surgery was no longer required.

Dr. Shah prescribed her medication for one week. She reported on 14th February 2014. She improved around 80%. The swelling, redness, and discharge had reduced significantly. Dr. Shah prescribed her medication for two weeks. 

She reported on 5th March 2014. Her abscess had completely recovered. Her other complaints of asthma, hair fall, lumbar spondylitis, sleeplessness, and headache had improved around 75%. She is still continuing the medication for complete recovery in the rest of her complaints. 


This case demonstrates that homeopathy can offer faster results and avert surgical intervention.
