This is an informative article, mainly targeting the misguided use of homeopathic medicines in preventing or treating COVID-19.
My focus will remain on the role of homeopathy during this monstrous infection that has been causing chaos in the world these last few years (COVID-19). If you are reading this article hoping to get the names of homeopathic medicines, you may get a little disappointed.
We all know that the current situation is threatening and causing a panic-like situation. The most advanced countries have failed to control it effectively or put forward any solution. And with this chaos, when many geniuses in the world are on edge to find the cure and solution for COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019), many other so-called geniuses are spreading rumors. There are many forwarded messages without any authentic sources, numbers of social media posts, and online videos of self-proclaimed experts suggesting one or the other medicines. I am in no mood to follow their path in the same manner to get some pseudo exclusivity. I will try to show the right direction for individuals reading this to avoid getting into the maze of proposed unverified treatments. In this article, I will also be addressing an area of vacuum about post-coronavirus infection.
Coronavirus is an advanced and more evolved family member of the common cold (cough, cold, coryza) virus to narrate in a simple language. We all know that evolution is an undeniable fact. We all have evolved. The difference here is that while humans take millions of years to show a substantial change in their evolution, the virus has a very fast pace and short life span. They multiply in seconds, and now million then trillion is how they produce their numbers. So in comparison to their evolution, structural changes are also equally fast.
As we humans have different changes in our body structure according to time, season, and geography; likewise, viruses also develop their structure according to the need for survival. That is why scientists come up with new names for viruses every few years or the same virus with a different "surname." Like H1N1, a type of influenza virus, there are many others. Likewise, the corona has many "cousins.'' And this is not the first time that coronavirus has infected a human. It has been isolated and notified for 50 years or more. Even in 2003, it was reportedly causing mass infection.
The simple answer is the above explanation. It has sophisticated itself with a more equipped structure and is more potent to survive against the odds. Plus, the factor that we always miss is deranged health and an altered immune system. We have damaged our bodies' core system so much that it is now vulnerable to the minutest threats. Still, those with fairly working or intact and strong immune systems will escape the virus's effects or even the infection altogether.
Not all COVID-19 infected people will have active disease. It can range from a completely symptom-free state to serious ICU (intensive care unit)-level expressions of the disease. In any case, no one has to believe that they are safe. Today it is the coronavirus tomorrow, it is a cousin who can join a more powerful attack, and we may not escape it at that time.
One needs to know about DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and its structure to understand this. All our cellular functions are mediated by the DNA coding we receive since birth. Throughout life, the processes at all levels are managed by them. When viruses enter through our airways, the organism can get direct access to the basic structure of the DNA as they have a similar structure. And they can change it or alter it. The alteration is not beneficial, which we can see by an increase in the number of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, and the list.
The problem here is that there is no effective way to treat this kind of organism through the prevailing treatment options. As the viruses have a similar structure to our DNA, our immune system cannot identify and expel the virus. Instead, the viruses get directly attached to the cells, multiplying with support. Until the body realizes that something is wrong, the virus would have affected our body.
They remain in the body attached to our DNA system lifelong. There is no effective antiviral treatment in allopathy. Even after successfully treating viruses like Hepatitis B, the risk of developing cirrhosis or liver cancer is not reduced much.
The same is happening in the current situation. They are using various options as trial and error methods. Most of us think of the short-term outcome of any event. Same in COVID-19, we are just thinking about prevention and treatment. And yes, it is a need of the moment. But, first, we have to think of effective ways of treatment; being a homeopath, I believe homeopathy is a viable candidate.
But in homeopathy, there is no single remedy for any disease. We select medicine based on the presenting symptoms and match them at all levels. We have to pick it up very carefully for each patient. Yet, after treating a good number of cases, we can list out a small number of medicines frequently found effective, which in no way is the final medicine. Ultimately, individualization is indispensable for the right treatment in homeopathy.
Every day, I receive one of my relatives or friends sending some forwarded messages suggesting a homeopathic medicine that can prevent or cure the problems. And they are ready to take anything. A few might also have taken medicines like Arsenicum album, Camphora, sepia, China officinalis, Hepar sulph, Variolinum, and whatnot.
To explain it in short, they may or may not be effective. We cannot decide whether it is effective in preventing it or not. Some cases with positive exposure may have been prevented, which can be a positive result. But the matter of concern for me is active infected cases. Those suspected of exposure or who are infected should be treated by proper individual case study and the right homeopathic prescription. The patients should take proper homeopathic treatment instead of taking random suggestions. Nothing can replace the right homeopathic medication.
I am sure many of the patients can be helped and can be prevented with the right homeopathic medicines. We can reduce expenses, reduce hospitalization, and can save many lives.
Also, it is of concern that the doctor is well-versed in the treatment methods, adequate knowledge, and experience to treat several acute cases. When you choose your homeopathic doctor, make sure he is experienced enough.
1) Do not ignore any symptoms.
2) Avoid taking random suggestions for medicine. Trying to save a few bucks of consultation money may cost you your life.
3) Take the medicine as suggested without your prejudices.
4) Take due care of hygiene.
5) Follow government rules, especially quarantine, and avoid further spread of the infection.
6) Take good care of your nutrition and diet, as it plays a good role in improving immunity.
7) Exercise adequately.
8) Avoid being fooled by forwarded or unauthenticated treatment suggestions.
9) The internet is a good source of information, but it cannot replace a doctor.
The other point of concern that I cannot discuss at length here is the after-effects of the virus. Those patients who went unharmed or recovered well from the virus do not mean it is safe now. We may have won the battle, but war is still on. If you go through the research and data, the virus is associated with many autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis. There are high chances that they may suffer from such illness in the future, as they may always remain under the impression that it is something new while it is just the consequence of ineffective treatment methods.
My suggestion to readers is that if you have the option to start homeopathic treatment with whatever the complaint, you have to save yourselves and your future generations from such diseases. Homeopathy has the power to prevent it if given the right medicines. So spread the word as much as you can. Start taking health seriously. I cannot stress enough the importance of it. You can consult me online for any further assistance if needed.
