Healing People. Changing Lives


May 13, 2010

10-year-old student with psoriasis was brought for treatment to Dr Batra's™ by his parents.

Prasad (name changed), a very lively and cheerful boy of 10 years, was brought to our clinic with the complaint of psoriasis. He was seven when he developed the lesions first. It happened after he injured his knees while playing. The mark stayed as a dark spot and later on, he started developing patches with dandruff-like flakes over it. In spite of being on the conventional medicines, his Psoriasis patches were gradually increasing in size. With great hope in heart, his parents decided to visit Dr Batra's™ for the treatment of their son.

Prasad was a very expressive and talkative child. In a very short time, he was moving about in the clinic and chatting away with people. He became very friendly with the clinic staff. His mother added that he was never shy of people and enjoyed their company. He would make friends very easily.

Prasad stayed with his father and mother, and had a younger sister. He shared a good relationship with all of them. He was more attached to his mother, who used to pamper him a lot. Prasad was very fond of keeping things organised. He used to get angry if the things were disorganised. His younger sister, especially, would scatter her toys all over the house, which used to irritate him. Prasad was studying in the fifth standard. He was average at studies, but he was his teacher favourite.

The consulting homeopath at Dr Batra's™examined Prasad. His patches appeared red and covered with dandruff-like flakes. Along with the patches, he had developed pitting over his nails, a sign commonly seen in people with psoriasis. The doctor then explained the nature of the ailment to his parents and the homeopathic approach for treating such cases. His parents, who had earlier thought that psoriasis would be a life-long companion of their son, were much relieved by the doctor's explanation and decided to start the treatment. 

During the case study, his mother gave details of his birth while Prasad himself very confidently answered the other questions. Prasad was born through caesarian section, and was a healthy baby. He received all the vaccinations in time and his developmental milestones were also normal. His appetite, thirst, sweat, bowels and urine were all normal. He had a great liking for sweets and fish. In spite of eating well, Prasad weighed just 23 kgs, which was also a matter of great concern for his mother.

After taking all the details, his case was worked out by the consulting homeopath at Dr Batra's™ and a constitutional medicine was prescribed to him along with advice on skin care. A weight gain diet plan was also prescribed for him by our in-house nutritionist.

Within a few months of starting the treatment, his psoriasis patches stopped spreading. The redness and flaking also reduced. At the end of two years of treatment, the skin over the knee joints and his nails returned to normal, with no new patches coming up during the course of treatment. Prasad also gained some weight after taking the diet that he had been advised.

He was asked to be under observation for some time to see that the results achieved were maintained and no new patches appeared again. His parents were very delighted to see their son lead a normal life again.
