The world is in “freak-out mode” due to the new Coronavirus, but homeopathic doctors are not nearly as concerned about it… and for good reasons.
Homeopathic treatment has had a long history of success in treating people suffering from various viral infections.
‘Oscillococcinum’ is helpful for the common flu virus and four controlled clinical studies have confirmed its efficacy.
The many successes – up to 98 per cent – from homeopathic treatment of the 1918 flu epidemic provides additional support for the efficacy of homeopathic medicines.
Personal experiences with ‘Influenzinum’ have found safe results in defending against and preventing the flu.
The worst problems occur when people get a viral infection and then use fever-reducing drugs, such as aspirin or acetaminophen. Since fever is an important defense of the body, suppressing fever can be dangerous.
Please do realise that an ignorant media is creating an atmosphere of FEAR! And fear is an acknowledged important emotional tool which compromises the Immune system.
Sadly and strangely, they are not reporting on these facts:
— No deaths occurred in children aged 9 years and younger, but cases in those aged 70 to 79 years had an 8% fatality rate and those aged 80 years and older had a fatality rate of 14.8%..
— The vast majority of people who died from this virus had a pre-existing condition, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, or cancer.
— There is a higher incidence of death among men in China, seemingly due to the fact that so many more men smoke tobacco than do women.
Hearing reports from China, homeopaths there report that the symptoms of people who get the Coronavirus point towards the following medicines:
‘Gelsemium’ (first choice) and ‘Bryonia’ or ‘Eupatorium Perf’ (as second choices).
One other potentially very important remedy is ‘SQUILLA MAR’. (if you do research on it, you’ll be intrigued by how well it fits the known symptoms). It is best to individualize treatment.
Please also remember that the highest death rates from this virus come from China where a large percentage of the people smoke a lot and consume tobacco. Plus many of their cities are highly polluted. These stress factors for the respiratory tract are not as serious in many other countries. Their food habits add to their woes.
Homeopathy has very good remedies which may prove to be beneficial in COVID 19, like it has been in other viral diseases like swine flu, dengue, chickunguniya and the plague of 1994 in Surat and Beed.
‘Arsenic Album’, ‘Aviare’ and ‘Calcarea Carb’ are the suggestive medicines which will work with benefit in the Indian scenario.
And don’t forget Thymulin. Thymulin is that hormone that helps the body create T-cells which are known to help fight the virus.
Unlike Allopathy, Homoeopathy does not need a new vaccine with every change in a virus due to mutation. For homoeopaths, all the Corona class, or other viruses with slight mutations be it CORONA SARS or Corona MERS and other viruses are just chip of the old block as long as the Psyco-somatic clinical presentation is clear cut.
So don’t fall prey to Fear Mongering! Take a bit of precaution and stay blessed as long as the precipitators are not available for a flare-up, but do contact your nearest Homeopath.
