A lady aged 52yrs with fever and throat patient visited 7th Oct’20
She an old patient of mine earlier 1year back treated for around 5-6 months for raised pancreatic enzyme and digestive issues. Her physique is lean & thin and having Vata Pradhan Prakriti, with good Satwa.
From distance at clinic (following covid rules) she was consulted for cold-feverish complain and prescribed routine course for seasonal cold and asked to have follow up over phone next day and get her routine haemogram blood test, CRP test done first if fever and complain persists. She next day reported me over phone that her husband a businessman and known COPD case under Allopathy doctor treatment in his routine checkup had tested positive and got admitted in private hospital under the Allopathy family doctor. She was counseled over phone and also asked to get her tested, and if any complains, update or get Hospital admitted accordingly. She got test on 9th October 2020 and the next day report showed positive for Covid -19. Blood report and CRP count with respect to her then presenting complains, seemed full control. Her vital status and condition access as taken over phone was improving and not any serious, and so she was treated at home with respect to the official guidelines to attend in Emergency nearby Covid-19 Hospital as needed. She continued improving with Ayurveda medicines and was reluctant to have any other medicines as she had faith and herself felt improving with given medicines. As medical assurance and assessment with treatment given got her all-other requisite test (D-Dimer, LDH, Ferritin, etc. with routine CBC repeat) done on 12/10/2020. All the followed reports and physical condition were in control and much improved with the only Ayurveda treatment given, proper diet, Yoga and self-isolation/quarantine stay. She was advised over phone for CT scan chest to finally rule out anything and plan the next course. She on 16/10/2020 herself got re-test done for Covid and it resulted negative for Covid-19 ; and as earlier advised on 19/10/202 her CT scan report showed normal. She was thereafter treated as post-Covid-19 recovered case with no complication. She is happy and had permitted to share all the reports for the documentation. Her electronic media consent was taken.
During the period she was prescribed following medicines.
