The latest Virus Scare has everyone on alert including, I observed, the financial markets!
But with homeopathy to support, we need not worry. Why? 1. Because homeopathy specializes in treating viral fevers!
2. Because homeopathic remedies enhance the inherent curative immune response of the individual, which is the only true cure of a virus related illness. 3. Due to this, healing with homeopathy has no side effects, but rather a definite sense of well being, even though the fever and some symptoms still persist for a few days. 4. If the homeopathic remedy is given early enough, the virus activity could be stopped in its tracks, with no progression towards known complications like difficulty in breathing or pneumonia.
So let us then understand the CORONA VIRUS.
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as
. The present
is a new strain that has found to be transmitted from bats to humans.
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.
What are some of the common symptoms of the present Corona Virus Infection?
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. Complications occur in a person with previously compromised health status and a tendency to easy infection due to poor lifestyle, diet or persisting chronic disease.
Homeopathic remedies work to make all this better. Being on long term constitutional homeopathic remedy already gives you a good chance of recovering easily from any viral infection, including Corona, SARS or Swine Flu! Thus it also works as preventative treatment.
Acute symptoms of 'Flu or Coronal virus-like symptoms suggest remedies like Ars Alb, Eupatoreum Perfolatum, Squilla Mar, Justicia Adathoda, Phosphorous, Belladonna, Aconite.
Some will respond to this immediately. But in some, if symptoms persist, other remedies will be required as second line, based on the additional symptoms that develop. These include - Droscera, Merc Sol, Sulphur. Most of these remedies are indicated in about any viral infection!
AS PREVENTIVE: FIRST: Wash your hands regularly, especially after meeting people.
SECOND: Some have suggested, for people not on regular homeopathic medication, 3 doses of Ifluenzium 200 at bedtime, on three consecutive days, followed by Ars Alb 200 at bedtime for three consecutive days. This course could be repeated again after 45 days. Definitely worth trying!
Beyond this - its best to be in touch with your homeopath!
