What remedies have been used successfully to treat and prevent Covid-19?
Is Ars alb 1M safe for children to take as well?
Hi Candace.. definitely.
For children i would prefer Ars alb 1m once a week as the preventive dose.
We plan to give arsenic album to our society staff (House keeping & Security). How should they be taking it. They come for work every day.
Can a diabetic have arsenic album?
Hi Dr. Leela,
At this time it is hard to get remedies where I am.
Would 200C potencies work as well as the 1M?
Interestingly even before reading this, over a month ago I took 3 doses of Ars alb 200c (1x daily for 3 days)... I had read that it had an action on viral infections so in lieu of other knowledge at that time, I took my chances.
About other remedies in this post.
the first remedy remains Arsenicum Album - if it is chilly/cold damp - and if the patient is chilly too and wants to keep warm.
The alternative is Sulphur is the patient is feeling Hot despite the weather. Dry mouth with thirst for warm drinks also indicates Sulphur.
Bryonia - is indicated for dry cough, dry mouth with thirst, tired feeling, needing to rest which helps. I gave Bryonia 1m to at least 5 cases recently for fever, cold and cough. SO we need to inquire further when Ars Alb and Sulphur are not making a difference,
Phosphorous - was also indicated for a few patients when they had a hoarse voice that was PAINFUL when coughing and speaking, felt better with eating, were feeling thirst - and preferred cold drinks, and also feeling hot (to differentiate with Sulphur).
Camphora !M was the most frequently indicated remedy in Iran for COVID19. It has the capacity to cure Covid, right from the initial upper respiratory symptoms (Ars ALb) upto the chest congestion with falling oxygen levels and collapse.
SO - If the Ars Alb is NOT making any difference to the symptoms - definitely move to Camphora
. Bacillinum - NO There was a connection being made with the BCG vaccine, which is similar to the source of the Bacillinum remedy (TB BACILLI). This apparently was one reason why Indians seem to have a better immune response to Covid19 - all have been given the BCG vaccine at birth. But it remains a theory.
Hi Candace.. nice to see you here..
Here are a couple of posts posted earlier.. you could check that thread...
PREVENTION - Arsenic Album 1m, 3 pills, once a day, for 3 days, can be taken in the morning. If one goes out shopping or for any other reason - repeat a dose on those days. The other indicative symptoms are a feeling of chilliness, uncomfortable with cold drinks, AC. Constant leaky nose with incessant sneezing. The Government has been distributing Arsenic Album 30 as prevention to institutions, societies, police departments, quarantined in hospitals - on request. This is also good for prevention. But I prefer the action of the 1M with my patients. It acts quickly and immediately. I feel the 30C is a low potency and will require repetition of doses for a longer time.
On my Blog, I have mentioned other remedies that could be indicated for prevention based on the Mumbai weather, one of them is Sulphur 1M, especially if they have symptoms like dry throat, with tickling sensation, better with warm drinks, but feel very heated and want the fan or AC all the time.
What about the next stage remedies? Camphor, Squilla etc? that requires another post. So let me know if you have understood this.
