Homeopathy treatment not only cured his deep vein thrombosis, but also helped him to enjoy his life to the fullest

39-year-old Mr. Girish (name changed) visited the clinic with complaints of severe pain in the calf muscles, swelling of the right lower limb and purpuric patches on both the legs. The pain and swelling would be excruciating at times that it compelled him to take sick leave from work, on regular basis.

Girish would experience severe pain in his legs, usually in the night. He was on Dianaoprin, an allopathy medicine for over a year with not much respite from the pain and swelling. Based on these typical symptoms, 'a doppler ultrasound test' was advised to him. Doppler ultrasound is a noninvasive test that can be used to measure blood flow and blood pressure by bouncing high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) off circulating red blood cells.

The doppler study of both the lower limbs revealed deep vein thrombosis (DVT) with soft tissue oedema below the calf. We promptly prescribed him Arsenic Album 200 / 2 doses and asked him to stop the allopathy medicines slowly and eventually. Within 4 months of treatment his red patches on the legs had disappeared with great improvement in pain and swelling of legs. As his homeopathic treatment continued we found that there was no reappearance of red patches, his pain in the calf muscles and swelling of the legs had gradually reduced.

We repeated the doppler ultrasound test by the end of 9 months; he showed no signs of deep vein thrombosis. He no longer suffers from leg swelling and pain. This holistic treatment not only gave Girish complete freedom from the pain and agony, but also helped him to enjoy his life to the fullest.
