Serial study of Pneumonia/Bronchopneumonia 25 cases




I was invited by the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences - Bangalore, to present a paper on evidence based Homeopathy on 10th April 2015. I presented a serial study of 25 cases of Pneumonia/Broncho-pneumonia with X-rays and Blood counts (before and after 10 days of treatment). This Karnataka State University is the one which confers all medical graduation degrees to students of all branches of medicine and also regulates post-graduate education. It was a great honor for me and my college Bharatesh Homeopathic Medical college where I am part of the faculty as a Lecturer in Materia Medica. The paper was very well received by students of homeopathy, P.G. students, faculty of various colleges from all over Karnataka as well as distinguished guests which included the Vice-chancellor of RGUHS, Vice-chancellor of Vivekananda Yoga University, Prof C.R.Chandrashekar (B.C.Roy awardee) and others. It was a great day for Homeopathy because I think it was the first time an authentic serial study has been presented in a scientific form in this manner anywhere in the world. I plan to collect 500 such cases for documentation and study.

Here I am publishing the statistical analyses of the results of my treatment of the cases treated during a period of two months. No cases were eliminated or included to influence the results - this is a serial study. It may be noted that not a single case needed admission to a hospital, no death took place and no IV fluids or anti-biotics were used during the course of Homeopathic treatment.

It is not possible to publish the X-rays and original reports (they were displayed at RGUHS) as it would be too voluminous for publication besides it would reveal the identity of my patients for which I do not have their permission. However self-explanatory Graphs and a patients chart has been included for authenticity. The patients recovery is demonstrated from the blood counts where it is evident from the before/after chart, that the patients have been cured. Also it may be noted that most of the patients improved clinically within 48 hrs of starting the treatment and were asymptomatic within 4 days. Only a couple of cases required treatment beyond 10 days. It may also be noted that of these 25 cases, 6 cases were referred to me by doctors of modern medicine, 1 case was referred by a Pediatrician. I have also decided not to reveal the drugs used, since this blog may be taken as a reference for treating such cases, which it is not intended to be. However all details were divulged and analyzed at the RGUHS seminar. Two cases discontinued treatment as the parents felt that the children were asymptomatic. The families of these cases continue to come to me for other ailments, hence I am in a position to monitor their status clinically- they remain healthy. One case `Swaroop J' continues treatment since he has an almost chronic consolidation (14 months duration) which is responding slowly to treatment. This case I have taken as not cured since it is incomplete.
 
 





 

The  case of Pulmonary Kochs consolidation was confirmed through sputum examination for AFB and was then referred back to the pediatrician who had sent it to me, hence does not figure in the graph below. One case has been listed as a partial cure since the Pneumonia itself has resolved but has left behind a L. Apical bulla. Treatment continues as on 18th April 2015.
