A Case Of Persistent Cough Cured By Allium Cepa

A 76 yr old retired village officer. Was suffering from persistent barking cough since last 6 months. Tried all treatments, no relief. Cough caused by tickling in throat. Tough, viscid expectoration. Persistent hoarseness. Cough aggravated by lying down. Better open air. < warm room. < evening. Generally hot. Involuntary dribbling of urine day and night- not related with cough. Sleep was very restless, with a recurring dream of somebody pushing him into a well. Cough was so violent that it was difficult to take the case properly. He was coughing so violently in front of me. I felt him sympathy, and wanted to give some relief instantly. I noticed a peculiar behavior during his coughing. He will grasp the throat forcefully with both his hands once the cough starts, and will leave it only after the paroxysm ends. I felt it a very peculiar symptom.

Selected the following rubrics using Similimum Ultra software, and repertorized with QUICK PICK method.

ALLIUM CEPA was selected and given 30c tds, as well as advised to take frequently during paroxysms of cough. It relieved his persistent cough, hoarseness immediately,and involuntary dribbling of urine by 2 months . Later, sulphur was given a few doses as constitutional similimum, after repertorising using physical generals and mentals only.

SIMILIMUM ULTRA Homeopathic Software I am not a scientist, academician, scholar, professional homeopath or anybody with 'big credentials', but an old lay man, a retired government servant, who accidentally happened to fall into the deep waters of the great ocean of homeopathic knowledge during his fiery teenage years, and was destined to live a whole life exploring the mysteries of that wonderful world with unending enthusiasm. My interest in homeopathy happened very accidentally when I was only 20 years old UNDERGRADUATE ZOOLOGY student, through a constant relationship with a local practitioner who happened to be father of my classmate. I was a regular visitor in his clinic, where from I started reading BOERICKE MATERIA MEDICA and other homeopathic books, which helped me to cure myself my troublesome asthma that have been haunting me since my childhood days. I became a voracious reader of homeopathy.
