History of Presenting Illness

Starting with sneezing and tightness in the chest within a couple of hours it develops into a wheezing cough. If a ventilator is not used, an asthmatic attack can occur resulting in breathing difficulty and need to be hospitalized. With a ventilator, an asthmatic cough stays for about 2 weeks. There is productive cough and yellowish sputum, breathlessness and inability to perform daily activities due to reduced lung capacity. Mild to moderate headache was associated with the other symptoms throughout the whole period of time. Easily catching flu and viral infections.

Occurrence of vaginal thrush after using antibiotics. Face looks a bit puffy and sinuses were tender on palpation. History of asthma since childhood.

Dosha Prakriti – Kapha Pitta

Dosha Vikrti – Aggravated Kapha and Vata

Treatment Approach

  • Started with application of BR oil on neck and sinus areas along with steam inhalation on daily basis. Special oil was prepared for the patient to clear out small channels and blockages of sinuses. This also relieves the discomfort related with dyspnea.
  • Repeated Nasya karma to cleanse phlegm which is blocking the sinuses and causing headaches. 
  • Specially made herbal drink Ojoboost to reduce phlegmatic condition on the upper respiratory system and empower immune system. 
  • This was coupled with a medicinal herbal decoction and a paste to be taken morning and evening. Both were to reduce Kapha and provide necessary detoxification actions.
  • For two weeks a special herbal porridge was given along with a special herbal tea to reduce Kapha. The porridge was to correct the digestive disorders and to remove Ama the patient was suffering from. 
  • Patient was requested to follow the onsite mindfulness programs of Yoga and Meditation classes along with mild exercises every morning to improve mind body awareness.
  • Forth week onwards rejuvenating formulas were prescribed to restore energy and provide nourishment to the tissues and to further enhance immunity. 

Condition at Departure

The patient was feeling free of respiratory symptoms which started fading away since the end of first week and by the end of third week she was without cough and with full lung capacity.  Reduction and elimination of Kapha and respiratory system cleansing through Nasya was quite effective along with steam inhalation. Dosha Vikrthi of mild Vata aggravation was remaining till the end of 3rd week and by the departure time she was without any imbalance according to the pulse diagnosis. 

Post-departure Routine / Maintenance Routine

A diet to follow up was given with full explanation of how to avoid Kapha aggravating food. 

A regimen to follow up before, during and after the fall season and whenever she is about to expose herself in polluted air wag given. 

Continuation of the immune boosting herbal drink Ojoboost, which is especially effective on protecting phlegmatic respiratory conditions, was suggested along with the special herbal BR oil.

Feedback received on 30th of January 2020

  • She has Ojoboost Herbal Drink during seasonal changes, when most people catch colds and get sick, and used the BR oil soon after feeling a sore throat as directed, finding on the next day that all symptoms are gone.
  • She significantly highlighted the immune-boosting activity of Ojoboost Herbal Tea because even her family and friends have noticed her improvement on not catching viral flus anymore. 
  • She ordered a supply of the Ojoboost Herbal Tea and BR oil to use for 2020 which were sent to her with a friend who visited Plantation Villa in February, 2020.
