Understanding the rare used medicine “ASAFOETIDA”

Understanding the rare used medicine “ASAFOETIDA”

62 years Female .Chronic Gastritis, since 2 to 3 years. 


Disturbed sleep .H/o chronic varicose veins.

Came for Acidity and Eructation Case taken in April 20.


Patient: – I am suffering from gases (burps, eructation) after every meal; within one hour I start burping out initially.

I was managing it, but nowadays since it is a continued series of 50, 60 to 70 eructation or more than 100. I can count it (A)


 Doctor: -are you counting it really? 


Patient: – no… no… Dr, I am just saying I can’t say how much noisy and annoying it’s become …


Doctor: – what you feel why this is happening? 


Patient: – I feel that every part of my body is filled with gas, wherever I touch, it comes out. (And she show me) 

I think my meals don’t get digested, it turns into gas only, and see how I am looking now puffy, and everywhere is gas in body (B)

I was telling my sister that these gases come from bones also, .. see how I have become (she was showing me how she is looking, fat!) 


Doctor: – so what did you do? 


Patient : – I massage the area wherever the pain is. At night, if I don’t massage my legs I can’t sleep, I even continue with eructation. It’s only after the massage that I get to sleep. 

Nowadays because of this heaviness, I don’t get sound sleep. I feel like there is pressure on my chest, and I wake up from bed and then walk and again I try to sleep (D) 


Doctor: – why is this happening? 


Patient: – Actually, I currently  only cook food and I do all preparations with less oil, as my husband also has diabetes and hypertension,  so I prefer less oily food, and I even didn’t ate any tasty food since almost 2 years. I wonder how people can eat everything and they don’t have any problems and I am taking care and precautions and still I can’t eat tasty food which I like most.

My son prepared some paneer, I only ate one bite and see today I am having eructations that are like blasts & (she shows me with pressing her throat and eructation came out)

Today, the left side of my throat is burning, something is in the throat; if I press my throat and gas is released than I feel better. After gas passes, In the last week I even had swollen eyes and when I apply pressure on the eyes, throat, head, or back any part of my body produces gasses.


Doctor: – so what have you taken for it?


Patient: – nothing, I massage on the painful parts and gas is released then I feel better. But I didn’t take antacids.


Doctor: – any stress nowadays? 


Patient: – no stress but, I feel that this throat pain could be a big diseases? 


Doctor: – why, are you feeling any pain in your throat also? 


Patient: – yes, too much acidity.


I think there is problem in my stomach. If my digestion improves, then this gas problem will be solved. All things are coming from stomach only.

I eat with consciousness. Anything I eat turns into gas. I am fearful of eating. 

If I eat, I have to sit and press for gases to get released. Then I feel sad, and ask myself, why I ate food, while eating I also knew that gases would come after food. I have to suffer but I can’t keep my stomach empty.


And within 3 days her eructation stopped and she could sleep. She didn’t complain after that about gases and loud eructation and was in an absolute better condition.

C) Mind -Anxiety Hysterical (CR) 

Hysteria – Hysteria is the term for unmanageable emotional excesses. People who are “hysterical” often lose self- control due to an overwhelming emotional outburst. It is the behaviour exhibiting excessive or uncontrollable emotion, such as fear or panic. It is the state of uncontrolled excitement, anger or panic.

E) Mind -Anxiety; Hypochondriacal 

The original Greek ‘hypochondriakos’ referred to the region of the abdomen, an area that ancient doctors believed to be the seat of misery or melancholia. It stands to reason, then, that hypochondriacs are usually unhappy, simply because they always imagine they’re sick.




Hypochondriasis refers to excessive preoccupation or worry about having a serious illness. This debilitating condition is the result of an inaccurate perception of the body’s condition despite the absence of an actual medical condition. It is a mental disorder characterized by excessive fear of or preoccupation with a serious illness, despite medical testing and reassurance to the contrary. An abnormal state characterized by emotional depression and imagined ill health, often accompanied by symptoms untraceable to any organic disease. If someone suffers from hypochondria, they continually worry about their health and imagine that they are ill, although there is really nothing wrong with them.
