Case 8: Can Myopia be helped by Homoeopathy?
NATIONAL JOURNAL OF HOMOEOPATHY 2006
Dr Vishpala Parthasarathy
'Nat-m / Tub-b

Introduction This case held special happiness for us, because patient had not come to us for 4 yrs and when she came back only we learnt that the myopia was better, and had continued to improve and patient acknowledged that It was due to the Homoeopathy only. Most often patients, when they discontinue treatment, always say it improved on its own!

Ms RR 7 yrs came to our clinic on 25th July 1995.

Conclusion: The patient and her sister are under my care since childhood, regularly till 1998. Then on call: which means whenever they were sick, they came to me. Tehre was a hiatus of no treatment between 2000-2004. After that the younger sister has been regular for the treatment and the patient would ask for the treatment with her for cough. When she came to us on 17th Jan 2006, we took the detailed follow up. And as reported, the numbers has improved drastically. She had not taken any other medication in this span. And when we told her that the credit goes to Homoeopathy, she said of course I will give you credit!: Mummy always says my daughters have been well because of homeopathy!! Felt good, like a bonus -unexpected and pleasant.
