Homeopathy Proved To Be Highly Effective In Treating Frequent Cold

    Frequent cough and cold is a reflection of a low immunity of the body. Frequent cold is a respiratory tract infection that mostly results due to many different types of viruses. Any age group can be affected due to it, but children who are under the developmental age are most vulnerable to it. 

    This case study is about the frequent cold and the result of homeopathy in treating the condition effectively and safely with no side-effects.

    A 52-year-old male patient, Mr. V.S. (PIN: 9415) consulted at Life Force in 2007 for his complaint of the frequent cold. Due to frequent episodes of cough and cold, his personal and professional life both were affected adversely. He was suffering from frequent cold complaints for many years. Sneezing, nasal discharge, and cough symptoms were bothering him quite frequently. Initially, the frequency of the episode was daily. Besides these symptoms, throat irritation, nose block, and snoring were other common symptoms that were affecting him. Due to sneezing and productive cough, he was disturbed. Consistent cold also made him suffer from mild headaches and heaviness of the head. 

    In addition to this, he had constipation, acidity, and trigeminal neuralgia complaints. Initially, he had taken many conventional treatments but got the result only for short periods. The results were not long-lasting. Then, his friend suggested him to start with homeopathy treatment, as homeopathy works on immunity and causative factors and gives long-term result without any side-effect.

    In 2007, during the consultation, his detailed case was taken. There were no specific physical and general symptoms present, except for he was fond of sweets. Mentally, he was very responsible but anxious. He liked perfection in every work, so he used to get disturbed on trivial matters. 

    For the homeopathic prescription, his past medical history and his family’s medical history were also taken.

    Based on his detailed case history, Dr. Shah’s research-based molecule and a specific diet were prescribed to the patient for his complaint.


    After a few weeks of following our homeopathic medicine, his cold symptoms were as it is, but he felt better. He was advised to continue the medicine. 

    After a few months of following medicines regularly, his frequency and intensity of cold episodes had reduced. His relief in trigeminal neuralgia improved, and his dependency on conventional medicine also reduced.

    Following homeopathic medicine regularly for three years, his condition turned extremely good. His cold symptoms appeared quite rarely. He felt good so he stopped further treatment. 

    In 2017, the patient again visited us for the relapse of trigeminal neuralgia pain and frequent cold. On 18th September 2017, he reported that his pain due to trigeminal neuralgia had relapsed three months back and it was affecting him daily. His frequent cold complaint had also relapsed in the last few days due to the weather changes.

    Due to the frequent cold, green productive cough, sneezing, and nasal discharge were the prominent symptoms that were bothering him. His cold symptoms were triggered due to the exposure to the dust and change in the weather. After considering his symptoms in detail, he was prescribed Kali bi and research-based medicine for frequent cold. 

    Within a few days, his body responded positively. His relief in cough and cold symptoms improved, but, at the end of December 2017, his cough and cold symptoms triggered again so his medicine was changed. 

    After 6 months course of homeopathic medicine, in June 2018, he reported a good improvement in his condition. He reported approximately 60% improvement. He followed all diet restrictions along with regular medicine. His relief in trigeminal neuralgia pain was also better. 

    After a one-year treatment, his relief in the cold condition was 75% better. Some fluctuation was observed, due to irregularity in following the medicine, for a few months in the disease. Otherwise, the whole year, his condition was better without any conventional medicine. He was advised to continue the treatment for one more time for total recovery, and the patient continued. 

    Recently in October 2020, he gave his follow-up. He informed his condition was good and under control till June 2020. But in July, due to the weather change, his cough was productive. Due to his discomforting cough and nose block, he faced difficulty to do the WFH during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    In the lockdown, his work pressure and anxiety increased, but his relief in trigeminal neuralgia complaint was 80%-85% better. As per his current symptoms, Dr. Shah prescribed him a changed medicine.

    He is continuing his homeopathic medicine. He is satisfied with his progress.

    This case highlights that homeopathy is highly effective in treating frequent cold and trigeminal neuralgia incredibly and safely without any side-effects.
