Several symptoms were identified during this exercise. The main symptom was persistent coughing. The coughs had been recorded for two days. The coughs were also characterized by expectorations and congestions. The coughed-up mucus was thick. The symptoms were observed to diminish when in the open air (Moghe, Gangal, & Sjilkar, 2011). After inputting these symptoms into the remedy finder, several drugs were recommended that could treat the condition. The remedy grid highlighted the most appropriate medications that can be used to deal with the targeted health condition.
The grid presented below shows the recommended remedy for the identified symptoms.
Taking the Remedy
The remedy finder was used to outline a number of medications that can deal with the indicated health complication. The major symptoms were inputted in order to come up with the best remedy. I successfully completed the suggested exercise using the outlined symptoms. Several remedies were identified after completing the exercise. The selected remedy for the symptoms was Bryonia. This drug is effective against coughs, colds, and flu (Reddy, Gnanasekaran, Vijay, & Ranganathan, 2010). It is also used to treat physical weakness and headaches.
After identifying the recommended remedy for the symptoms, I decided to purchase the drug from a local vendor. The suggested remedy was consumed and the symptoms disappeared within two to three days. The pulp was diluted in accordance with the provided instructions. The drug was very effective against the symptoms. People can use Bryonia to deal with various symptoms and health problems (Reddy et al., 2010).
From a personal perspective, I can state clearly that the remedy is appropriate for various symptoms affecting many people. The remedy grid is also effective because it suggests several medications that can be used to deal with various diseases and health complications (Moghe et al., 2011). Individuals using such a remedy will be able to address most of the health problems affecting them.
Researching the Suggested Remedy
Bryonia is “a poly-crest remedy used for treating pains associated with coughs and colds” (Moghe et al., 2011). The plant extract is also used to treat chills, flu coughs, and colds (Renner, Scarborough, Schaefer, Paris, & Janick, 2008). The patient might become weak or nauseous especially after eating. This drug is helpful for colic, coughs, headaches, sprains, and abdominal pains.
Bryonia is also appropriate for head colds and watery nasal discharges. The medicine is prescribed for a wide range of health problems such as headaches, coughs, colds, and sore throats (Renner et al., 2008). That being the case, the remedy grid is useful because it recommended the right drug to deal with my symptoms. Patients with similar symptoms can therefore use the drug to achieve positive health results. The roots of the Bryonia plant are chopped and then pounded to form a pulp (Blasio et al., 2011). The pulp is diluted in accordance with the symptoms being treated.
Individuals can use the remedy grid whenever they encounter certain symptoms such as coughs or chills. The recommended remedies can then be used to produce the best health outcomes (Blasio et al., 2011). I will always use this remedy grid whenever I encounter similar symptoms. The grid is also appropriate because it presents several treatment options (or drugs). Every person can embrace the use of this remedy grid in an attempt to produce the best health results.
