NOW WHAT ON EARTH HAS THE ASIATIC COCKROACH GOT TO DO WITH USIAN BOLT & LONDON 2012 …..........YOU MAY BE WONDERING?
NOW FOR THE FACTS ABOUT DEAR OLD BLATTA!
HABITAT – Often found around decaying matter, in sewers, drains and any other damp locations…..lovely!!!
Blatta Orientalis patients have a tendency to catch cold, as well as sensitivity in the bronchi, which are easily irritated and inflamed. The patient would often start with a common cold which develops in to severe bronchitis and coughing; this in turn creates respiratory problems, which eventually turns into chronic asthma.
It was found accidently to relieve asthma in a patient who took tea in which the bug had been infused.
Great oppression of breathing
Inability to move or lie down
Loud wheezing worse during the night
Inability to raise the excess mucus
Aggravation cold wet weather
Professor George Vithoulkas, a world authority on Homeopathic medicine, states that it has been his experience that aggravation occurs in humid, cold weather, with a smell of mould.
In the USA, a 5 year, Multi-million dollar study on the causes of asthma in the inner-city, found that exposure to Cocs was an important cause of asthma related illnesses and hospitalizations among children.
Please see www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/published/9368259 for information on the study. They could have saved the US tax citizen a fistful of dollars by doing some extra studies beforehand!
1890, was a good year for the Coc, yes, little did that little critter know that it would be doing a great service to mankind other than skulking around the drains & sewers! It was even a better year, for some lucky asthma sufferers! 1890 was also busy for a Dr D. N Ray, of Calcutta, India, who took the time and trouble to publish two papers in the Homeopathic Recorder on his findings. America was also busy that year, as a number of papers from some of their physicians confirmed Dr Ray’s experiences with the medicine.

There are no Homeopathic remedies for a disease label, such as Asthma per se, and it would be very fool hardy to think that one could treat oneself with such a condition. Homeopathic medicines are prescribed for the individual, not for the disease label.
