A prospective study of the patients suffering from cervical spondylosis treated with bowel nosodes was conducted with the objective to study their efficacy when prescribed on the basis of stool culture report. The stool cultures of 82 enrolled cases were done for isolation of non-lactose fermenting bowel organisms. On the basis of the presence of the predominant bacteria in the stool of patient suffering from cervical spondylosis, the corresponding bowel nosode was administered. Out of 82 patients enrolled in this study, 31 patients were given bowel nosodes only; 69 patients (84.14%) were given bowel nosode alone or along with homoeopathic/biochemic medicines. The results of the study were, therefore, assessed in these 69 patients only. The study concluded that bowel nosodes could possibly be used effectively on the basis of the stool culture in the treatment of patients suffering from cervical spondylosis.
