Homeopathy for Monkeypox

In this article, learn about the basics of monkeypox, including what the most common symptoms of the disease are as well what the most commonly indicated homeopathic remedies are for monkeypox.

Pox virus, illustration. Pox viruses are oval shaped and have double-strand DNA. There are many types of Pox virus including Chickenpox, Monkeypox and Smallpox. Smallpox was eradicated in the 1970’s. Infection occurs because of contact with contaminated animals or people and results in a rash or small bumps on the skin.

About Monkeypox

Monkeypox was first discovered in 1958 when two outbreaks of a pox-like disease occurred in colonies of monkeys kept for research, hence the name ‘monkeypox.’ The first human case of monkeypox was recorded in 1970 in the Democratic Republic of Congo during a period of intensified effort to eliminate smallpox. Since then monkeypox has been reported in humans in other central and western African countries.

Monkeypox is a rare disease that is caused by infection with monkeypox virus.

About Genus Orthopoxvirus

The genus Orthopoxvirus contains a number of species that can infect animals and humans. The most well known member of the genus is variola virus, the causative agent of smallpox. Other notable members include vaccinia virus which is used in the current smallpox vaccine; cowpox virus, first introduced by Edward Jenner in the late 18th Century as the material of the first vaccine; and monkeypox virus.

Monkeypox Signs and Symptoms

In humans, the symptoms of monkeypox are similar to but milder than the symptoms of smallpox. Monkeypox begins with fever, headache, muscle aches, and exhaustion. The main difference between symptoms of smallpox and monkeypox is that monkeypox causes lymph nodes to swell (lymphadenopathy) while smallpox does not. The incubation period (time from infection to symptoms) for monkeypox is usually 7−14 days but can range from 5−21 days.

The illness begins with:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Backache
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Chills
  • Exhaustion

Within 1 to 3 days (sometimes longer) after the appearance of fever, the patient develops a rash, often beginning on the face then spreading to other parts of the body.

Lesions progress through the following stages before falling off:

  • Macules
  • Papules
  • Vesicles
  • Pustules
  • Scabs

The illness typically lasts for 2−4 weeks. In Africa, monkeypox has been shown to cause death in as many as 1 in 10 persons who contract the disease.

Risk mitigation

Health authorities recommend the smallpox vaccination to those who are at risk of exposure to monkeypox.

The homeopathic nosodes Malandrinum and Variolinum have both been used successfully in the past for the homeoprophylaxis of smallpox.

Homeopathic prescribing for pox-associated diseases

Homeopathy produces its best results when remedies are matched to symptoms rather than disease names.

Chickenpox, monkeypox, buffalopox, horsepox, camelpox, cowpox, smallpox, vaccinia virus, herpes and shingles each have one symptom in common- the production of blistering vesicles known as poxes that fill with fluid or pus.

The choice of which one to use is made by matching the remedy to other presenting symptoms as well as the symptom of pox.

Top homeopathic remedies for monkeypox

According to what is known about the symptoms of monkeypox, the top homeopathic remedies for monkeypox to consider include:

Merc sol. This remedy covers all the symptoms of monkeypox the best and should be the #1 remedy to consider first. This is a common remedy for chickenpox. Characteristic symptoms include offensive, profuse sweat, large eruptions with profuse sores that can become open wounds, swollen lymph nodes, symptoms worse at night as well as worse from becoming chilled or overheated.

Dulcamara is a common remedy for shingles, and also covers the symptoms of monkeypox. Think of this remedy if symptoms develop after exposure to cold wet weather. Eruptions get worse at night and better by moving about and from external warmth. The eruptions are thick, crusty, moist and get worse before menses (in women). The crusts over the blisters are thick and brownish –yellow which starts bleeding when scratched.

Rhus Tox is the #1 remedy for chickenpox and it also covers the symptoms of monkeypox very well. Characteristic symptoms include burning intense itching that grows worse from scratching at night, and at rest. The eruptions can be large and pus-filled. The patient may be restless, and may have difficulties with falling to sleep and/or with staying asleep.

Natrum muriaticum is a common remedy used for herpes (cold sores). The eruptions contain watery, clear fluid. Vesicles with watery contents burst and leave thin scurf (flakes on the skin). The patient may have cracked lips and the eruptions are relatively painless.

Pulsatilla is another common remedy for chickenpox. Patients who need this remedy tend to be affectionate, gentle, sensitive and weepy, and have little thirst. Their symptoms tend to be worse in warm rooms and at night, and they feel better in open air.

Hepar sulph is a common herpes remedy, indicated for irritable patients whose eruptions are painfully sensitive to touch or cold.

Antimonium tart is the #1 remedy for smallpox and could be considered for monkeypox patients who have a rattling cough. Blisters tend to be large and they appear slowly.

Variolinum was the chief remedy used by Burnett for shingles. These are cardinal indications for Var.: Severe cold; chill; chilly creepings as if cold water were trickling down the back; violent fever with extremely hot skin, with or without high pulse. Violent headache. Nausea. Pain in epigastrium. Pain in limbs as if in bones. Severe backache. There may be rash or there may not.

Arsenicum is a common remedy for chickenpox. The eruptions tend to be large, with much pus, and can become open sores. The pains are burning and the patient is extremely chilly. Pains tend to be worse around midnight and in cold weather.

Other remedies to consider include: Thuja, Silica, Antimonium crudum, Sulphur, and Belladonna. Note that this list of remedies for Monkeypox is not exhaustive and that remedies should only be administered under the guidance of a professional homeopath.

Homeopathy for COVID Vaccine Damage

Disclaimer: This article is a compilation of homeopathic professionals’ experiences with treating their patients with individually selected homeopathic remedies. Remedies should be selected in consultation with a professional homeopath. This article is not intended as medical advice and does not substitute for the advice of a health provider. The decision of whether or not to vaccinate should be made in consultation with a medical doctor.

A problem which is becoming evident in the current vaccine campaigns being promoted to limit Covid-19 and the spread of SARS-Cov-2 is the prevention of adverse effects from these vaccines.  During a worldwide pandemic, the vaccination of hundreds of millions of people with vaccines which have been produced in emergency conditions, with much shorter-than-usual trial periods, means that side effects, some of them new and unexpected, are discovered along the way.

We also have to take into account the use of vaccines produced by using new technologies with limited testing. Currently approved by Canada and the USA are the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines. Other countries have approved vaccines based on genetically modified adenovirus vectors such as the Astrazeneca (or Vaxzevria) vaccine, the Russian Sputnik vaccine, and the USA has approved the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Homeoprophylaxis and mitigation of side effects

Note that it is important to select one protocol and to not use all of the following remedies at once for risk mitigation. The remedy or protocol should be selected in consultation with your homeopath.

To mitigate the chances of side effects, homeopaths are having success with administering tautopathic remedies made from the vaccine as per Dr. Tinus Smit’s CEASE therapy protocol.

Herbal creams or ointments containing Ledum, Calendula, and/or Arnica (such as Flamyar ointment) can also be applied topically to the site of vaccination, which helps mitigate pain, swelling, and bruising. Additionally, homeopathic Ledum 30C could be given before and after vaccination, a few times per day for a few days. Silica and Thuja are remedies that have traditionally been given in the past to mitigate vaccine side effects, and they have also been proven to be effective remedies for these COVID vaccines.

Vaccinations – PREVENTIVE, prophylactic for side effects: (10) arn. HYPER. LED. phys. plan. Sil. sulph. tetox. Thuj. vario.

Dr. Andre Saine recommends taking Bryonia 30C before and after vaccination, to prevent any possible side effects. For risk mitigation, Dr. Gaikwad recommends Torula cerevisiae 200C, taken twice per day for two days following vaccination. Dr. Egidio Galli recommends taking Bothrops lanceolatus 30C, 3 granules every evening in the 3 days preceding the vaccination, and for 5 days afterwards.

Spike protein detox guide

The World Council for Health has released a comprehensive detox guide to mitigate harmful side effects from the COVID vaccine. Included are lifestyle, dietary, herbal, and supplement recommendations.

Homeopathic remedies for COVID vaccine reactions

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list. This article is meant to be used as a reference guide for professional homeopaths. Administration of any of the following remedies should be done under the guidance of a your homeopath. In some cases, constitutional homeopathic remedies should be used for vaccine reactions, in consultation with your homeopath.

Acute reactions to vaccination

For swelling, inflammation, itching and edema after vaccination, consider Apis mellifica or Belladonna. If the site of vaccination gets infected and will not heal, consider Hepar sulph.

[Vaccinations] ACUTE, reactions: (16) acon. apis arn.Bell. calen. Carc. cic. echi. hep. HYPER. LED. merc.
plan. pyrog. Thuj. zinc.

To help with pain at the injection site, use Ledum and/or Arnica 30C. Hypericum 30C is also a remedy to consider if there is shooting pain down the arm.

Polycrest remedies used for ailments from vaccination

When the COVID vaccines were first approved, homeopaths were not sure whether the remedies they normally used for vaccine reactions would work on these novel vaccines. Thankfully, the traditional remedies often do work. Many homeopaths have had great success using Silica, which is a polycrest remedy for vaccine reactions. Thuja has also often worked wonders for clients suffering from COVID vaccine reactions. A thorough analysis of how to use Thuja and Silica for vaccine reactions (as well as other polycrest remedies) can be found in the following two articles:
Silica – Queen of Homeopathic Remedies for Vaccine Reactions
Homeopathy For Treating Vaccine Reactions

Note that in Zandvoort’s Complete 2009 Repertory there are 74 remedies listed for the following rubric: Generalities; VACCINATION; After: ANT-T., CALC., CAUST., CHAM., DULC., EUPHR., IOD., LYC., MALAND., MEZ., NIT-AC., PH-AC., SABAD., SEC., SEP., SIL., STAPH., SULPH., THUJ., TUB., VAC., Acon., Ammc., Apis, Ars., Bar-c., Bell., Echi., Hep., Kali-m., Lach., Med., Merc., Nux-v., Ped., Psor., Ran-b., Vario., calam-a., cimic., ephe., hyssop., lepro., plan., ant-c., arn., bac., bapt., bufo, caps., carc., crot-h., cupre-l., diph., graph., gunp., hyos., kali-chl., lac-v., mag-p., merc-cy., nat-bic., phos., rhus-t., sabin., sarr., sars., skook., stram., syc-co., tub-k., uran., v-a-b., zinc.

Tautopathic remedies

Homeopaths have been having success with their clients using tautopathy, which is a potentized homeopathic version of the COVID vaccine. For best results, the specific brand of vaccine is used in potentized form.

Remedies for neurological reactions

These COVID vaccines do tend to target the nervous system, therefore, they seem to have some similarities in their action with the polio vaccine. Thus the following rubric will be useful:
[Vaccinations] POLIO, vaccination, ailments from: (10) bell. Caust. Gels. hyper. lath. merc. phos. phys. plb. Rhus-t.

Causticum has been used successfully in cases of paralysis along with a sensation of heaviness and weakness of the limbs. Think of Gelsemium if there is muscular weakness, trembling, exhaustion and dizziness. Lathyrus could be indicated if there is paralysis, especially of the lower extremities. Rhus tox and Hypericum have proven useful in cases of nerve pain after vaccination.

Zincum could be indicated in general irritation of the nervous system with restless sleep, with shrieking upon waking and/or restless feet. Think of Nux moschata in cases of extreme tiredness with loss of memory, awkwardness and poor balance with stumbling. Nux vomica is a polycrest remedy with an affinity for the nervous system which has proven useful for these vaccine reactions; common symptoms include oversensitivity to stimuli, constipation and irritability. Silica has also been used successfully for symptoms of nerve pain, headache, nausea, epilepsy and/or convulsions after the COVID vaccine. Generalities; CONVULSIONS, spasms; Vaccination, after (2) : SIL., thuj.

Remedies for cardiovascular issues

Though they have a major affinity for neurological complaints (see above) don’t forget that both Zincum and Nux moschata also have an affinity for the cardiovascular system. Cactus is a great polycrest remedy for all kinds of heart complaints. Arnica is a good remedy to consider in cases of thrombosis.

The snake remedies such as Lachesis, Naja, Crotalus horridus, Crotalus cascavella, Cenchris and Vipera have been used with success for various heart complaints, such as clotting disorders, following COVID vaccination. Also consider Bothrops lanceolatus and Buthus tamales (see below, under “unusual remedies”).

Kali mur 6X homeopathic cell salt can be used for thrombosis, emboli and clots after the COVID vaccine, and this remedy also has the ability to bring down D-dimer levels.

Remedies for skin complaints

Skin; ERUPTIONS; Vaccination, after (17) : Ammc., Mez., bac., crot-h., cupre-l., kali-m., maland., med., nit-ac., sabin., sars., sil., skook., sulph., syc-co., thuj., vario.
Skin; VACCINATION, after (10) : Acon., Bell., Sil., Thuj., ant-t., apis, merc., phos., sulph., vac.

Sulphur is a polycrest remedy for skin eruptions, and it proves useful for eruptions after COVID vaccination. Malandrinum is a rarely used nosode but it has proven useful in cases of urticaria after vaccination, as well as hypertension. For a pimple like eruption that persists at the site of vaccination, consider Vaccinium. Apis, Silica, Gunpowder or Crot-h could be useful remedies for abscesses or pustular eruptions that have formed after vaccination. Think of Mezereum, Variolinum , Rhus tox and Sarsaparilla for eczema or itch-like eruptions after vaccination.

Unusual Remedies for COVID vaccine reactions

Buthus tamulus (Buth-t): Indian red scorpion. Jeremy Sherr feels that this is a frequently indicated remedy for COVID vaccine damage. Red scorpion venom contains potent cardiotoxins. The venom affects the nervous system. It induces a massive discharge of catecholamines. Research has shown that severe COVID-19 resembles the manifestations of catecholamine excess states (hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, immune dysregulation, and hyperglycemia). Scorpions can survive high levels of radiation. They can survive nuclear attacks. Scorpion venom can be used for fighting cancers. The venom causes cyanotic extremities due to vasoconstriction. This remedy could prove most useful in cases of stroke, heart attacks and thrombosis.
Buthus tamulus cured symptoms after taking the COVID vaccine: Irritable and aggressive. This remedy can be a useful for low platelets (thrombocytopenia) and low iron. It has also proven useful for tinnitus, tachycardia, severe headaches and heart palpitations. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, with sour taste in mouth and pain in stomach and back. Herpes zoster. Sleeplessness, muscle pains, numbness, trembling, difficult breathing, muscles feel stuck. Flu-like symptoms, dizzy and confused, feels like she is being strangled with no appetite. Depressed and exhausted, rattling respiration, with burning sensation internally.

Torula cerevisiae: Yeast. Dr. Gaikwad feels that this is a very important remedy for COVID vaccine damage. This is a good remedy for an immune system that has been damaged by vaccination. This remedy can remove impurities and cleanse the system and can prevent or help autoimmune conditions. It’s a very strong anti-sycotic remedy. Good for anaphylactic states caused by proteins and enzymes.
Guiding symptoms: Boils and itching eczema. Children with digestive issues post vax (e.g. constipation). Kids with autism or ADHD. People with a lot of flatulence, constipation. Can be used in old age. Postnasal drip. Bad headaches. Generalized body ache after vaccination with no energy. Cold hands and feet that go to sleep easily. Torula is like a modern day Thuja and Dr. Gaikwad uses Torula much more often than Thuja

Bothrops lanceolatus: Snake. There is no proving and this remedy is not usually used much. Toxicology: Paralysis. Lots of bleeding. Incoagubility. Targets platelets. Very large clots in large blood vessels. Swelling. Severe thrombosis. Weakness. Difficulty breathing. Causes more human deaths than any other snake in the Americas.
Pharmacological information for the Bothrops lanceolatus venom as per Dr. Egidio Galli:
– Effectiveness in heparin-resistant thrombosis, such as VITT, autoimmune thrombosis with thrombocytopenia from anti-Covid vaccination. The batroxobin in the venom combines with fibrinogen separately from thrombin, and it is effective in all coagulation problems which, during the coagulation cascade, take place before the transformation of fibrinogen to fibrin.  The molecule is not inactivated by heparin or similar anticoagulants.
– It is the only snake venom that contains the angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, BPP5a (Bradykinin-potentiating peptide); there is a notable biochemical similarity between the enzymes ACE and ACE2, which the BPP5a combines with in the same way as the virus. There is also similarity between the protease serina BjSP of the venom and the type 2 transmembrane protease serina (TMPRS2) which promotes viral absorption on the wall of the type II alveolar epithelial cells.

Oncorhynchus tshawytscha (Onc-t): Salmon. Menstrual changes post vaccination. Copious clots.  Copious flow. Menses too early or late. Flow increased. Abortion. Infertility.

AIDS nosode: The AIDS nosode is associated with boundary issues: keeping what is in, in; and what is out, out. A complete breakdown of the immune system. The proving had strong motifs of boundaries (houses, walls, rooms, shell, contamination, popping seeds and bubbles), rejection, and isolation.

Homeopathy for Omicron

(Updated with new information on February 1, 2022) In this article, learn about the symptoms of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and how the symptoms differ from the previous COVID-19 variants. Then learn about practitioners who have been using homeopathy for Omicron, and about the homeopathic remedies that have been used successfully for Omicron.


The Omicron variant of COVID-19 was first discovered in South Africa in late November 2021. This variant has a very high infectivity rate compared with other variants, but is overall far less threatening, with a lower fatality rate than other variants such as Delta. Many experts agree that due to its high infectivity rate, Omicron will soon overtake the Delta variant.

Omicron Symptoms

Typically, the symptoms of infection with the Omicron variant resemble those of a common cold or flu. Common symptoms include coryza, throat pain (either mild or severe), a scraping sensation in the throat, severe or mild body pain, headache and low grade fever. 5-6 days after the fever breaks, there can be post viral scrapy throat and cough. In some cases there is nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or stomach pain. Omicron tends to infect the upper respiratory tract vs. Alpha and Delta which tend to infect the lower respiratory tract. With Omicron, the infection tends to be localized around the nasal mucosa and the throat. There are very few cases of breathlessness or low oxygen levels. Loss of smell is rare. The fevers tend to be low grade, though there may be high grade fevers, especially with younger children. With severe cases there may be may be mental confusion and dullness, breathing difficulties, chest heaviness, and chest tightness.

Dr. Bhawisha and Dr. Shachindra Joshi have divided the most common Omicron symptoms into 3 main groups:

  1. Mainly only throat symptoms. They have a scrapy sensation in the throat. They need to clear the throat often. Sometimes there is a feeling of a lump in the throat. Always hawking or coughing. Postnasal drip. Cough that is aggravated from lying down and from cold air/weather.
  2. They do not have very many throat symptoms but instead they have headaches, low grade or high fever, and body ache.
  3. Mainly nasal symptoms. Coryza and runny nose. Then they may have a sore throat following the runny nose.

Disclaimer: The homeopathic remedy or protocol for Omicron should be selected in consultation with a professional homeopath. In case of infection, an individualized consultation with a professional homeopath is strongly recommended.

Omicron Homeoprophylaxis

If someone has been exposed to family who are COVID positive, or has been exposed to a lot of people who are COVID positive, Bryonia is the homeopathic remedy of choice for Omicron homeoprophylaxis. Give the 200C potency once a day for 3 days every week for 2-3 weeks to boost the immunity. 200C matches the pace of the Omicron variant which is very fast. The COVID-19 nosode has also shown promising results in research trials.

Homeopathic Remedies for Omicron

Remedies as per the Joshis: Bryonia, Phosphorus, Rumex, Arsenicum album, Dulcamara, Eupatorium, Abrotanum, Pulsatilla, and Merc sol. Dr. Herscu recommends giving Gelsemium and/or the client’s constitutional homeopathic remedy for the Omicron variant. Dr. Pradeep Kumar Gupta has helped the majority of his 803 Omicron cases so far with homeopathic Hepar sulph 200C. Additionally, Dr. Rajan Sankaran has had good success with Nux vomica, Rhus tox, and China. Ferrum Phos and Influenzinum were used successfully by Dr. Dhanipkar.

The Joshis feel that Bryonia, Phosphorus and Rumex will cover most cases of Omicron.

Bryonia is the first choice for the #2 (see above) cluster of symptoms – fever, headache, and malaise. Use Bryonia 200C for milder cases and 1M for the stronger cases. Use the 1M 3 times per day for rapidly developing cases.

For cases of fever and chill during Omicron, Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad has often used China, as well as Phosphoric acid.

If there is sore throat and no fever and no body ache, just a scraping sensation in the throat, then the drug of choice is Phosphorus. Then the next remedy to think of would be Rumex. Once the cough sets in Rumex is the better choice. The Rumex cough is worse from cold air and change of weather to cold. Note that the Omicron variant first emerged when winter set in. Rumex is a good remedy in areas where there is a change to winter and change to cold air (for example, in the northern hemisphere).  Dulcamara is also indicated in colder climates, as well as Aconitum.

After the fever breaks, sometimes Pulsatilla is the indicated remedy for Omicron. This is a great remedy to give post influenza. It is also a great antiviral remedy. Pulsatilla is more effective in warmer weather locations and in southern climates.

Merc sol is for when the throat pain is intense, with a lot of redness and swelling in the throat. Other remedies for burning throat pain include Merc-i-r, Merc-i-f, Hepar sulph, Arsenicum album, and Baryta carb. If the throat symptoms are vague, the top remedy used by Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad is Streptococcinum 1M.

For cough, the main indicated remedies are Rumex, Phosphorus and Pulsatilla. Also consider, in some cases, Bryonia, Drosera, Spongia or Senega. For dry cough Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad also recommends Hyoscyamus and Bromium and for loose cough he recommends Manganum aceticum if the cough is better from lying down.

Dr. Andre Saine has helped most of his Omicron cases with the homeopathic remedy Carboneum oxygenisatum (Carbn-o). The most characteristic symptoms Carbn-o are great to extreme lethargy, apathy, loss of will, mental dullness and prostration, confusion, weakness, great sleepiness and extreme shortness of breath that are worse from the slightest exertion and better from open air. Another interesting symptoms that can be present when Carbn-o is indicated are disorientation in time and space and awkwardness.

To dry up mucus in the nasal passages, throat, and/or lungs, Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad recommends giving Kali mur 6X homeopathic cell salt along with one of the above indicated remedies.

Post COVID Homeopathic Remedies

For fatigue and weakness post COVID, Eupatorium and Abrotanum are the main remedies, according to the Joshis. Think of Abrotanum for elderly people who have tremendous weakness and dullness and fatigue after COVID, who are irritable and angry. Abrotanum 200C can be a good remedy for irritable, weak children after COVID – irritable weak children. Abrotanum is a great remedy for children and/or elderly post COVID. If there are a lot of joint and body pains then use Eupatorium. If there is bone breaking body pain and weakness, take Eupatorium 200C once per day for even a week, post flu or post COVID. Dr. Andre Saine recommends using Bryonia or Carbn-o for COVID long-haulers. For cases of depression and/or anxiety post COVID, Dr. Girish Gupta has found that most cases respond well to Arsenicum album.

Homeopathic Potency Selection for Omicron

Though the Joshis favour the 200C potency and sometimes the 1M potency, I have found that using the 30C potency also works very well for Omicron.

Natural Remedies for Throat Pain

In addition to using homeopathic remedies, there are a number of ways to ease throat pain. Some find that gargling with salt water, diluted oregano oil or diluted hydrogen peroxide is helpful. Propolis spray, colloidal silver spray, and/or throat lozenges can relief the pain. Make sure to stay away from menthol lozenges since they will interfere with the effectiveness of your homeopathic remedy.

Natural Supplements for COVID

The World Council for Health recommends taking the following natural supplements for COVID-19 infection:

Homeopathy for Smallpox

The Problem with Smallpox by David Rosner

The eradication of smallpox has been hailed as among the greatest triumphs in public health history. Once a disease that swept through cities and towns, leaving in its wake untold number of casualties and disfigured peoples, it has disappeared from the natural environment through massive inoculation and public health campaigns worldwide. And since the last case of smallpox appeared in the 1970s, it can be truly said that it is the only diseases to have been “eradicated” through human intervention.

Yet the Cold War allowed us to grab defeat from the jaws of victory by seeing in smallpox a chance to create a new and “better” weapon of mass destruction. The United States and the Soviet Union managed to agree to make sure that the virus that causes smallpox would remain in storage awaiting a new opportunity to terrorize the world. For decades, both countries stored it, distributed it to various research labs and otherwise ensured that this public health victory would be turned into a potential human tragedy. Not only did the two countries refuse to destroy the remaining vials of smallpox virus, but they worked hard to figure out means of making it all the more deadly and immune to the very public health measures that had “eradicated” it in the first place. They both envisioned a new biological weapon against which the enemy would be completely unprotected! By genetically altering the virus and selecting out strains that will not be intimidated by the smallpox vaccines used in the earlier vaccination campaigns, the two countries have effectively created a world in which we can all worry.

The Current Risk of a Smallpox Outbreak in Modern Times

On November 4, 2021 Bill Gates has warn that governments must prepare for future pandemics and smallpox terror attacks by investing billions in research and development.

Mr Gates suggested that the “germ-games” could include preparing for acts of bioterrorism such as smallpox attacks on airports. “You say, OK, what if a bioterrorist brought smallpox to 10 airports? You know, how would the world respond to that? There’s naturally-caused epidemics and bioterrorism-caused epidemics that could even be way worse than what we experienced today”, he said.

On November 16, 2021 several vials labeled “smallpox” were found at a vaccine research facility in Pennsylvania, said the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The frozen vials labeled ‘Smallpox’ were incidentally discovered by a laboratory worker while cleaning out a freezer in a facility that conducts vaccine research in Pennsylvania. Laboratory testing at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on November 18, 2021 showed that these vials marked as “smallpox” contained vaccinia, the virus used in smallpox vaccine. There was no evidence that the vials contain variola virus, the cause of smallpox. 

In 2014, employees of the National Institutes of Health found six vials of smallpox in an unused storage room as they packed up a lab at the NIH’s Bethesda, Maryland, campus to move it. Two of the vials contained viable virus. The CDC said at the time there was no evidence anyone had been exposed to the contents of any of the vials.

Smallpox Varieties, Mode of Propagation, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Dangers by Dr. Ruddock (1878)

VARIETIES.- This, the most marked of the eruptive fevers, and one of the most malignant, loathsome, and contagious disease, is of two varieties : (1) the distinct, when the pustules are separate and well defined (2) the confluent, when they are thick-set, run into each other, and form continuous suppurating surfaces. In this latter variety all the symptoms are aggravated, the glands are affected, the limbs swell, the mucous membranes show the eruption, and there is danger of suffocation from involvement of the larynx. This variety is, therefore, very dangerous, for the severity bears a direct proportion to the extent and suppuration of the pustules.

MODE OF PROPAGATION.- By contagion. No contagion is so strong, so sure, or operates at so great a distance of time and place. It is probably most infectious when the characteristic odour is perceived, and when the pustules suppurate. Recurrence of the disease is rare.

SYMPTOMS.- At first these are similar to those of most other fevers. There is lassitude, chilliness, heat, headache, a thickly-furred white tongue, a deep flush upon the face, a feeling of bruised pain all over the body, but especially in the back and loins, more or less pain or tenderness at the pit of the stomach, and sometimes vomiting. On the second and third day there may be transitory rashes of scarlatinal or measly type. these sometimes lead to errors of diagnosis, but their usual distribution, confined to lower abdomen, sides of thorax, axillae, and inner sides of thighs, should prevent mistakes. On about the third day the eruption appears in the form of red spots, or small hard pimples, feeling like shot in the skin. It first comes out on the forehead and front of the wrists;then on the neck and breast; then gradually extends over the body.

The eruption being completed, the fever subsides; the pimples begin to fill with fluid matter; this is first watery and transparent (vesicles), then yellowish (pustules); then become depressed in the centre (“umbilicated”), and are surrounded by a circular inflamed ring. The eyelids, face, and hands are swollen, and the features sometimes obliterated. A peculiarly disagreeable odour smell, cannot be forgotten. In about eight or nine days from the first appearance of the eruption, the pustules discharge their contents; secondary fever sets in; scabs then form, which dry up, and, in a strong constitution, fall off in the course of four or five days. There remain purplish spots, which do not fade away before the sixth or eight week, or indelible depressed scars, which are called pits or pocks. Discrete variola rarely leaves pocks; confluent variola always does.

DIAGNOSIS.- Unlike Measles and Scarlet fever, the pimples give the sensation to the finger of small shots embedded in the skin; the catarrhal symptoms of Measles, and the sore throat of Scarlet fever, are absent. Unlike Chicken-pox, the eruption suppurates and the fever is high. Unlike Enteric fever, the onset is abrupt.

DANGERS.- The more numerous and confluent the pustules, the greater the danger; the more perfect their maturity on the fourth day, the less the danger. The greatest danger arises from the secondary fever, about the ninth to the twelfth day, while the pustules are ripening; for then the fever is likely to return, when the vital strength is already much exhausted. In a confluent case, fatal chest symptoms may arise, or abscesses may form in various parts of the body, or there may be ulceration and opacity of the cornea or and loss of sight. Suppressed perspiration, scanty urine, Haematuria, great hoarseness, Convulsions, Delirium, or other complications increase the danger of fatality. Half the deaths occur between the seventh and eleventh days of the eruption. Smallpox is very fatal to young children. Small, dark, and badly ventilated dwellings, poor or scanty food, and want of cleanliness, constitute unfavourable conditions.

Homeopathic Prophylaxis for Smallpox

The homeopathic nosodes Variolinum, made from a smallpox pustule, and Malandrinum, derived from “grease” or “farcy,” a similar disease of horses, have both proved highly protective against smallpox epidemics in the past. For example, Fellger reported giving Variolinum to several hundred people, none of whom were ever attacked with smallpox. The collective experience of generations of homeopaths in the pre-vaccine era provides ample documentation that smallpox can be effectively prevented or mitigated if either of these remedies is given at the time of exposure or early in the 7-17 day incubation period.

Disclaimer: Homeoprophylactic remedies should only be administered under the guidance of a classical homeopath. Should the need arise, the homeopathic treatment of smallpox should only be attempted under the direction of a classical homeopath.

Disease Onset: At the First Sign of Symptoms

G. H. G. Jahr, an experienced homeopath who treated a great many cases around the mid 1800’s, prescribed Variolinum at the onset of the disease, and found that its course is generally abbreviated by it more effectively than by any other agent, with the added benefit that complications do not occur or soon disappear with continued use of this drug.

At the first sign of symptoms, we recommend Variolinum 30C, followed an hour later by 200, and by 1M one hour after that. Thereafter the symptom picture must be allowed to develop to provide more definite indications.

Homeopathic Treatment for Uncomplicated Cases, by Dr. Ruddock

Ant.Tart. is considered to be the most suitable medicine, and a dose should be given every two or three hours. It may be preceded by a few doses of Aconite at similar intervals, and the two medicines may be administered alternately, if the violence of the fever demand the continuance of the Aconite. Uncomplicated cases will in all probability yield to this treatment.

Common Homeopathic Remedies for Smallpox

Antimonium tartaricum is one of the most frequently recommended remedies, endorsed by Hughes, Tyler, Mathur, and Farrington. May be given as soon as smallpox is suspected, or at any stage, either alone or in alternation with any other remedy. Where the eruption has not come out properly or been suppressed by conventional treatment. Ant tart is a nearer simillimum to smallpox than any other remedy in the Materia Medica. It exercises a real abortive control over the variolous process and frequently covers the case from first to last.

Arsenicum album is another of our commonest remedies, recommended by many authorities. Especially in asthenic cases, with great prostration and sinking of strength.

China for hemorrhagic purple or black pustules, with great exhaustion from copious, painful stools, excessive debility, and prostration after severe attack. One of the main remedies when diarrhea is a chief characteristic.

Crotalus horridus is a leading remedy for septic cases. Bleeding tendency when rash fails to appear, with passive hemorrhage from many orifices, dry tongue coated yellow or dark-brown with red edges and tip, and low, muttering delirium with drowsiness.

Hydrastis is one of the most frequently recommended remedies. Dark pustules, which are intensely itchy, swollen, and tingling. Prevents pitting. Dr.Garth Wilkinson considered Hydrastis as much of a specific in variola as Belladonna is in scarlet fever. 

Lachesis is highly recommended in the suppurative stage, especially for sepsis or collapse, with hemorrhaging of dark blood.

Malandrinum is an important remedy both in treatment and for preventing disfiguring scars. For confluent or complicated cases, i. e., where the skin has an unnatural color between pustules, and the smallpox lesions become confluent, which is always serious; or when the eyeball becomes congested and red, which is a danger signal, Fellger used Malandrinum with notable success.

Phosphorus is one of the most important remedies, even for confluent cases. Hemorrhagic diathesis, with bloody pustules; prevents pitting.

Rhus tox is a major remedy. Typhoid-like symptoms, with dry tongue, sordes on lips and teeth, and great restlessness: wants to get out of bed, in spite of great debility. Pustules black or with bloody pus, and extremely itchy. Rheumatic symptoms, with aching in neck, back, and down legs, great tightness of muscles, and thirst for small sips.

Sarracenia purpurea has few reliable indications, but many homeopaths report great success in severe cases. Often used as specific, as well as prophylactically (for more details about this remedy, see below).

Silica is a leading remedy for severe, chronic cases. Caries of bone following severe attacks, with fistulous openings and discharge of thin pus and bony fragments, and for other chronic sequelae of smallpox or vaccination, such as weakness or corneal opacity.

Sulphur is indicated when ophthalmia complicates the picture. Also indispensable as an intercurrent, where seemingly well-indicated remedies fail.

Thuja. Boenninghausen employed this remedy with success and believed it to be the best curative and preventive agent in smallpox.

Variolinum. Widely used for prophylaxis. If given steadily throughout, the disease runs a milder course, imperfect pustules become more regular, and quickly dry up. Promotes suppuration and desiccation, and prevents pitting. When Fellger’s patients were treated with Variolinum 200C, he reported that the disease was shortened nearly by half, suffering was much mitigated, secondary fever was absent or much lighter, pustules did not burst but wither or wilt and fall off, the stage of suppuration was hastened and shortened, and patients were not marked with permanent scarring.

Sarracenea Purpura (Sarr) by Dr. Hale (1875)

This curious plant was first used as a medicine by the Indians, who, according to the reports of certain British officers, cured nearly every case of small – pox, in an epidemic of that disease which raged in Nova Scotia. So glowing were the accounts of its success in that dreadful disease, that it was used extensively in English and American hospitals, for a time, with the most varying success. It is difficult to account for the conflicting reports relative to its value in that malady, some pronouncing it absolutely inert, others asserting it to be a specific. In the first edition of New Remedies, I published only allopathic testimony. In the second edition, appeared a large amount of homoeopathic testimony from English, Continental and American physicians, nearly all of whom reported favorable of the value of the Sarracenia in the treatment of variola.

This remedy was believed by the Indians to be so efficacious, that if given to them when attacked with small – pox, they looked forward with confidence to a speedy and effectual cure. An old weired Indian woman was the fortunate possessor of the remedy in question. She had always been known as doctress of her tribe, and had enjoyed celebrity for many years, in consequence of her reputed knowledge of medicine, and wonderful acquaintance with the herbs and roots of the woods. So well established was her fame among the Indians, that when sick, they resorted to her in preference to the white doctors, whom they considered to be “no good. “

(1.) In the case of an individual suspected to be under the influence of small – pox, but with no distinct eruption upon him, a wine – glassful of an infusion of the plant, “Sarracenia purpurea,” or pitcher – plant is to be taken. The effect of this dose is to bring out the eruption. After a second and third dose, given at intervals of from four to six hours, the pustules subside, apparently losing their vitality. The patient feels better at the end of each dose, and in the end of each dose, and in the graphic expression of the “Mec – Mac,” “knows there is a change within him at once. “
(2.) In a subject already covered with the eruption of small – pox in the early stage, a dose or two will dissipate the pustules, and subdue the febrile symptoms. The urine from being scanty and high – colored becomes pale and abundant, whilst from the first dose the feelings of the patient assure him that “the medicine is killing the disease.” Under the influence of the remedy, in three or four days the prominent symptoms of the constitutional disturbance subside, although, as a precautionary measure, the sick person is kept in camp until the ninth day. No marks of the eruption (as regards pitting, etc.) have been left in cases examined, if treated by the remedy.

With regard to the medicine acting (as is believed by the Indians) in the way of a preventive, in those exposed to infection, it is curious to note, that in the camps where the remedy has been used, the people keep a weak infusion of the plant prepared, and take a dose occasionally during the day, so as to “keep the antidote in the blood. “

During the epidemic of variola, which prevailed for so long a time at Barcelona, and which still exists in some of the neighboring districts, I had occasion to try the Sarracenia purpurea, homoeopathically prepared. This remedy, which I have used in low dilution, has invariably given me the finest results.

The dilutions from the 1st decimal to the 3rd centesimal have been those in which Sarracenia has been used (Hughes, 1893).

Commonsense Measures for Home Care of Patients

For home care of patients with smallpox, 19th-century homeopaths recommended the following treatments. While some of them sound archaic today, their vast pooled experience has inestimable value alongside our purely theoretical knowledge at present, when no living colleague has ever treated a case of smallpox.

General Hygiene

Patients should be cared for in a room with moderate light, preferably separate from everyone else, which can be ventilated to provide ample fresh air continuously. Curtains, carpets, and all unnecessary furniture should be removed, and carbolic acid [phenol] should be used liberally as disinfectant. Tepid sponge baths relieve heat and restlessness, quiet delirium, lower the pulse, and promote sleep. Wet cloths applied to the throat, fastened at back of neck and top of head to protect the submandibular glands, seldom fail to comfort. Steam inhalation is useful when the throat is sore. When recovering, warm clothing such as flannel is necessary, and afterward a change of air is advisable, to the seaside if possible. The patient must not go out too early, lest secondary symptoms recur.


During the fever, milk and soda water, gruel, dry toast, simple biscuits, egg yolks beaten with cold milk, grapes, oranges, cooked fruit, etc., should be the staple diet. Drink may consist of cold water, barley water, weak lemonade, and the like, in small quantities as often as desired. As fever abates, a milk-based diet may be given, gradually returning to solid food. Strong drinks are rarely necessary, except in malignant cases, where wine, brandy, extract of beef, beef tea, etc., may be administered in frequent small doses under medical supervision. The patient’s position in bed should be changed frequently to avoid bedsores. In 1873 the Austrian Government named Dr. Roth to treat an outbreak of smallpox, for which he gave everyone exposed two tablespoons of vinegar per day, apparently with excellent results.

Local Treatment

When the eruption appears in force, the whole surface should be smeared with olive oil, cream, cold cream, or glycerin and water 1:2, 2 or 3 times daily. As pimples ripen into pustules, but before they break open, the skin may be sponged with equal parts of glycerin and rose water, and dusted with a powder of Ant. tart. 1X and violet powder 1:8. The glycerin and rose water helps the powder to adhere, which minimizes pitting. The hands of children should be muffled to keep them from scratching, which easily leads to ulceration and scarring. In children of both sexes, special attention should be directed to the urinary organs, which are vulnerable to serious complications. Vigilance is needed to minimize local irritation. When the skin becomes overheated or hypersensitive, great relief may be obtained by sponging with warm water and a few drops of phenol and then drying with a soft towel. Once pustules burst open, powdered starch or corn flour should be applied to absorb the matter. Cleanliness and frequent washing with tepid water are important, especially during the later stages. Eyelids glued together should be sponged regularly with warm water.

Pine Needle Tea Safety & Other Pine Remedies for COVID mRNA Vaccine Shedding

Many natural health practitioners and doctors around the world, and their clients, have reported symptoms such as headaches, brain fog, bruising, nosebleeds, post-menopausal vaginal bleeding, miscarriages, and other menstrual abnormalities after coming into close contact with individuals who were recently vaccinated with a COVID mRNA vaccine.

“Shedding” is a term used to describe a phenomenon that can take place after someone has recently been vaccinated with a live virus vaccine, such as the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. Due to the live virus contained within the live virus vaccine, there is a chance that the recently vaccinated individual will be contagious because they are shedding live virus, for a few weeks after they have been vaccinated. However, the mRNA vaccines contain no live virus, so they cannot shed in the traditional way that traditional live virus vaccines can. Yet, practitioners and their clients have observed that something is being transmitted from the vaccinated to the unvaccinated, and thus some experts are using the term “transmission” instead of “shedding” to describe what is taking place.

Sayer Ji of Greenmedinfo proposes a scientific explanation for the shedding/transmission phenomenon. The possible explanation is “microvesicle shedding and/or exosome-mediated transfer of nucleic acids . . . For instance, it is theoretically feasible that a vaccine recipient’s cells expressing COVID-19 spike protein as a result of transfection with mRNA from a Covid-19 vaccine may secrete microvesicles containing components ‘originally alien to the cell, such as proteins and nucleic acids that are transiently or constitutively expressed via plasmid or viral vector.’  (Scientific Reference: Microvesicles and intercellular communication in the context of parasitism). These microvesicles, like viruses, and other extracellular vesicles known as exosomes, can be transmitted to other individuals (inter-individual transmission) through both normal or diseased physiological processes (Scientific Reference: Exosomes in Pathogen Infections: A Bridge to Deliver Molecules and Link Functions).” Dr. Seneff and Nigh, in a recent paper about the possible dangers of the COVID mRNA vaccines, propose a similar explanation: “While this [mRNA vaccine shedding phenomenon] may seem hard to believe, there is a plausible process by which it could occur through the release of exosomes from dendritic cells in the spleen containing misfolded spike proteins, in complex with other prion reconformed proteins. These exosomes can travel to distant places.”

There is evidence that the COVID mRNA vaccine manufactures are aware of the vaccine shedding phenomenon. For example, during their early COVID vaccine trials, Pfizer warns their recently vaccinated test subjects to stay away from pregnant women, so as not to “expose” them through skin to skin contact and/or via inhalation. And Luigi Warren, who is one of the pioneers of the mRNA technology, recently had one of his tweets flagged on Twitter. He describes himself as “the inventor of the technology on which Moderna was founded.” In his tweet, Warren admits that people vaccinated with mRNA vaccines do shed spike proteins.

The Antidote? Suramin and Pine Needles

In the spring of 2021, blog and social media posts about how to protect against the COVID mRNA shedding phenomenon went viral. A short clip of a video interview of scientist and researcher Dr. Judy Mikovits posted by the Academy of Divine Intervention made the rounds, but unfortunately her words were taken out of context. She then did a second interview where she set the record straight. In both interviews, Dr. Mikovits talks about the pharmaceutical drug Suramin being protective against the toxic effects of the mRNA vaccines. Some misinterpreted her words in the first interview, and thought that Suramin was derived from pine needles, but Judy Mikovits clarified in her second interview that Suramin, being a pharmaceutical drug, bears no relation to pine needles.

It is, however, worth noting that pine needles do have potent antiviral properties. Pine needles contain shikimic acid, the main ingredient in Tamiflu. Shikimic acid also has anti-platelet aggregating activity, and thus it helps protect against blood clots. The fresh young pine needles are also a good source of Vitamin C.

Pine Needle Tea & Possible Safety Issues

Blog and social media posts about the health benefits of drinking pine needle tea have been circulating even before 2021, but is pine needle tea safe? I talked to a local herbalist at Gaia Garden Herbal Dispensary in Vancouver, who advised against drinking pine needle tea in large quantities. Yet Juliet Blankspoor of the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine recommends drinking pine needle tea, without giving a safety warning. Historically, according to the book Herbal Medicine Past and Present, the country people used to drink pine top tea (made from the fresh needles and buds, picked at springtime) every spring and fall to prevent colds. I would highly recommend that if you do indulge in pine needle tea, to do so in consultation with a professional herbalist. Women who are pregnant should avoid drinking pine needle tea, and pine needle tea is poisonous if made from Yew, Norfolk Island Pine, and/or Ponderosa Pine.

Homeopathic Pine & Pine Essential Oil

To avoid the possible safety issues of overdosing on pine needle tea, the benefits of pine needle tea can be found in homeopathic form, as well as in the form of pine essential oil. Pine essential oil can be used in a diffuser, or 1-2 drops can be applied daily to the soles of the feet. Pine as Homeopathic Bach Flower Remedy can be found without a prescription at many health stores. Pine as a homeopathic remedy can be sourced and prescribed under the guidance of a professional homeopath.

Research on Coronavirus

Part 1: Introduction to the research, the registrants who were involved, and the basic concepts of the research

This is a review of research done by Kate Birch, certified classical homeopath, on the use of a homeopathic coronavirus nosode, over a 6 month period, starting in March 2020.

The presentation covers research design, the number of registrants and the follow-up, proving symptoms from the coronavirus nosode, prior and active cases in those who were exposed, remedy response outcomes, and overall health outcomes.

This is a study on the effects of Novus-CV 1M in dilution in relationship to disease expression. This is also the largest homeopathic proving ever done. It was a real-time homeoprophylaxis application in an epidemic

The study resulted in improved health outcomes and no adverse events. 

Research goals: To determine the safety, effects/response, and efficacy of Novus-CV 1M.

About the Coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2/COVID-19) Nosode (Novus-CV)

Nosodes are homeopathic attenuations of pathological disease products sourced from infected individuals. 

The coronavirus nosode was made from samples of nasopharyngeal swabs, alveolar lavage fluid, and sputum of active human cases of COVID-19, authenticated and checked for cross contamination by a third-party lab. 

The remedy, Novus-CV, was made from samples that passed authentication. The remedy was potentized by a homeopathic pharmacy in the traditional way of trituration, dilution, and succussion.

Coronavirus Nosode Research Design

An intake was done with all research participants, and their overall health was assessed, as well as whether they had recent or active disease, and they were separated into age groups. There were follow-up surveys done 2 weeks after starting the protocol, then 3 months after starting the protocol. Note that there were no placebos used and there was no blinding done in this study. 

A number of participants reported having a strange sickness in November 2019, and they were placed in a separate group from the other participants.  And there were also a number of people who upon registration had active symptoms. 

The participants were clients who had done the childhood homeoprophylaxis (HP) program with their supervisors, and their friends and family.  There were 33 supervisors who registered participants in the study. A total of 1169 people registered which represented 348 families, but of those who registered only a total of 817 people took the nosode.

Participants ranged in age, but most were in the 0-5 and 30-49 age range. 10 pregnant women also participated. There were no issues (no adverse reactions) that occurred with the pregnant women or with the 5 elderly people 80+ who participated. According to the results of this study, this nosode is safe for all age groups. The 30-49 age range tended to have the highest amount of proving/immunological responses (side effects) from the remedy. Participants lived in mostly the USA, in various states. They were also mostly (80%) Caucasian. 

The Circle of Disease

When we are using a nosode we are activating an immunological process. So what does that immunological process look like? There’s a prodromal period, then fever comes, which capitulates the immune system to move towards a discharge, then there’s often an eruption, and then there’s often some sort of resolution through sweat. This is known as the circle of disease.

This immunological process can be compared to the action of infectious disease in the general population. First there’s a prodromal period, moving towards the peak of the epidemic, then at some point there’s a transformational change, and collectively immunity starts to develop, and this is the theory of herd immunity. When you are giving the nosode in an epidemic, you are diving into the problem, to help activate the seed of consciousness to move towards a resolution. 

Note that homeoprophylaxis can ameliorate symptoms but it can also cause proving symptoms (side effects). For those who are new to the concept of homeopathic provings, click on this link to learn more.

Part 2: Dosing, active cases, and remedy responses

Dosing directions

Participants took a single dose (3 pellets) of the 1M potency of the COVID nosode. A week later, they took a triple dose (3 doses) of the 1M potency of the nosode within a 24 hour period. Participants were instructed to repeat the triple dose of the 1M potency (3 doses in a 24 hour period) if they were exposed to the virus or if they had COVID-like symptoms. If they found the nosode dose to be too strong, participants were told to put a single dose of the nosode in a full glass of water and sip it throughout a 24 hour period until symptoms subsided. 

Kate Birch has spoken with the researchers at the Central Council for Research in Homeopathy in India, who has done research on using the Dengue nosode for Dengue Fever, and they found that it is best to use a potency of 200C or higher, due to an increased chance of aggravation symptoms (side effects) from potencies of 30C or lower.

Kate Birch had concerns that clients would have more side effects/aggravation symptoms if she used potencies that were too low of the COVID nosode, so she decided to use the 1M potency. 

Most participants did their first dose late March, and then they took the triple dose a week later in early April 2020. So most of these doses were taken by participants prior to the peak of deaths from COVID in mid April. Then these same families were instructed to take another triple dose of the nosode in October – note that some took the 1M potency and some took the 10M potency (families who took the 10M were those families who elected to take the 10M during the summer for added risk reduction). 

Active cases

Some participants (a total of 63) had active acute symptoms upon registration such as fever, body aches, headaches, coughs, runny nose. A lot of the symptoms were intermittent and many of these participants had difficulty breathing and wheezing. Most of the fevers were very low grade. Many of the symptoms were intermittent or recurring or slight. There was lots of fatigue.

Participants who already had active symptoms often had an increase in fever symptoms after taking the nosode; however, their sinus, cough, and headache symptoms often improved. What homeopaths are doing, when we give the nosode, is that we are pushing forward the immunological process of the circle of disease. The participants who had active low fevers upon registration were stuck in a prodromal period, then when they took the nosode, the fevers were pushed to higher temperatures, which burned out the discharge and moved them towards a resolution of their illness. 

The COVID nosode can be a good remedy for the symptoms of post-COVID syndrome because it helps intermittent symptoms pass through. 

The suggested miasms for COVID-19 are malaria (intermittent) or typhoid (effort and collapse).

Remedy responses

Immunological symptoms, if any, that participants experienced after they took the COVID nosode, were mild and short-lived. Immunological symptoms that participants reported after they took the nosode included runny nose, sore throat, and headache. 314 respondents had immunological symptoms after the single dose, and 219 respondents had immunological symptoms after the triple dose.

Improvements experienced by participants who took the COVID nosode

Greater clarity, attention, motivation, really good mood.
Improvement of brain fog and depression. 

Some themes of the COVID-19 nosode

I felt the collective emotions. Again, paralyzing fear, great sorrow, grief, profound sadness, and an out-of-control feeling. All of the symptoms went away within 24 hours. Profound peace, bliss, awareness, and the ability to ground the collective emotions followed. I honestly feel like a different person. This nosode has changed me for the better. 

Felt really good after taking the remedy, fear of the virus completely went. Felt optimistic, like the virus is here to help humanity transform. Feelings of elation and freedom, expansive energy, soaring.

Part 3: Exposure, contraction, and long-term health outcomes

Of the 817 respondents who took the nosode, 96 people had previous COVID-like symptoms and/or 63 people had active immune symptoms when they took the nosode and 130 people had exposure to people who had COVID. A total of 28 participants took the COVID test during the study and they all tested negative.

96 participants had previous COVID-like sickness between Nov 2019 to registration. Of those, 78 people had symptoms that resolved before the study started, and 16 had active symptoms upon registration. 38 participants developed symptoms during the study period, and 14 had relapsed symptoms. 12 respondents were tested, all negative for COVID. The homeopathic success rate for unresolved/relapsed symptoms was 97.3%.

63 registrants had active symptoms, of which 16 had previous disease. 40 of those with active symptoms developed symptoms during the study period. 60 people with active or previously unresolved symptoms resolved with the remedy. 2 people did not participate in the follow-up surveys. The homeopathic success rate was 95%.

Examples of registrants who had active symptoms upon registration, whose symptoms resolved after taking the COVID nosode

Fever 101 degrees, body aches, runny nose intermittently. Intermittent headache. Upon breathing, chest hurt near top of trachea; intermittently for 5 days, intense fear and anxiety about having COVID. All symptoms resolved after first dose of the nosode.

Had been sick for more than a month with sinus symptoms and a cough. After taking the doses all symptoms went away.

Runny nose for a few days, dry cough, lasted a couple of weeks. At the time, the symptoms I experienced felt unfamiliar, not like colds I usually get. All symptoms resolved after first dose. 

I had low grade fever, tightness in chest, difficulty in breathing. Had fatigue the first day after taking it. I had been experiencing chest symptoms that felt like I couldn’t take a full breath on inhalation. Low grade fever and chills. Great fatigue on day 4, lasted all day. Tightness lessened but came back after a few days. And then tightness and heaviness; chest symptoms, couldn’t take a full breath, on inhalation went away. Seldom, dry cough went away after. Moderate headache, alternating sides went away. Anxiety about disease, death, family went away.


130 people who enrolled in the study were exposed to COVID. 57 of those people developed short term symptoms during the study. There was a 98.7% resolution rate of symptoms during the study. 

Of the 130 with definite exposure, 56 did not respond to the survey and 74 people did not get the disease. Of the 434 people who responded to the 3-month survey, 0 people contracted the disease. Survey follow up was open until October 1, 2020. 

Participants’ attitudes about and response to covid exposure before and after taking the nosode

Prior to taking the first dose, I was feeling fearful and anxious. I felt like the unknown was making me crazy. Not knowing if I was going to get the virus and get sick. Not knowing how sick I would get if I got the virus. I just wanted to get the damn virus and get it over with!

The day I took the first dose, I went food shopping before taking it. This was probably at least my third time in a food store that week. I got to a point in the store where the space becomes tight and there were no windows. My fear and anxiety started to come in and I started to think that my shopping was sick. I felt vulnerable and exposed. It was excessive and unnecessary. I thought, “This is sick. It’s sickening.” I realized I was actually saying this out loud. I felt down, dragged down, frustrated. I worried that all of us in there were just going to make each other sick. I wanted to get out but felt the need to finish. I returned home. My mother, my daughter and I all took the nosode together. We said a few encouraging words, almost like a pep rally. About an hour after taking the nosode I started to notice that my mood changed. My fear and anxiety dissipated throughout the next couple of hours until it was gone. I felt lighter, clear. I felt like I was somehow above it all, I felt expansive. It was wonderful. To this date that initial level of fear and anxiety have not returned. I also no longer feel the desire to get the virus in order to move on. I feel like I have moved on, somehow…

On May 21, 2020 I was potentially exposed. I came in contact with one of my students’ families, 4 of whom had COVID at the time (one of them died in June of COVID). The student hugged me and I was in close range of two of the sick family members. I repeated the triple dose of the nosode at that time. I did not get sick. 

The COVID nosode decreased the feeling of fear in study participants

Fear was a predominant symptom that most participants experienced, especially before the study began. During the dosing, most participants noticed a lessening of their fear overall. 3 months after the dosing, very few participants were still fearful and there had been a shift collectively towards a feeling of well-being.

A strong and resilient immune system

Our immune system reflects how we live on this planet. When we have a healthy immune system, we can say that our degree of autonomy will mirror that; our volition, and what it is that we are doing in life. 3 months after the taking the COVID nosode, the vast majority of participants felt that their immune system was strong and resilient. Also, according to the responses of the 434 people 3 months after dosing, there was no worsening of previous chronic health conditions after taking part in the study. 

Words of gratitude/testimonials from participants

We love HP! I am a critical care paramedical nurse and wish you could integrate HP and homeopathy into emergency medicine.

I was symptom free, no aggravations. I’m assuming that all is well since I’ve had no bad reactions. Thank you for doing this research. I have been using homeopathy for 25+ years.

I’ve been around many persons with COVID both in hospital where I work and outside of work. I feel confident that this nosode helped me to fight it off and not contract it. 

The shift in my overall well-being has been enormous; most significantly, my emotional-psychological vitality, my ability to communicate with and connect with others, my capacity to keep perspective, set boundaries, consistently self-care, confidently pursue my work and passions: all have had a significant amelioration. 

I am grateful to have had access to this nosode. I am certain it alleviated my anxiety about getting sick. The anxiety was quite bad. I am fascinated by the lessons of the illness and became entrenched in my desire to learn more about the illness and myself during the early phase when I first took the nosode. I hope to get back to it and grow with the energy of this epidemic. 

COVID Nosode Overarching Proving Theme/Lesson

The overarching theme or lesson of the proving of the Novus-CV nosode is “The Shattered Mirror.” What it means is that whatever illusions that we’ve had, we’ve looked in our mirror and however it is that we saw it; what we thought life was about, it’s changing, it’s not that anymore. 

It reminds us of the homeopathic remedy Spectrum, which is made up of all the colours of the rainbow. Somehow, in the fragmentation of this, we have an opportunity to come together and create a better situation. We’ve been living with divisions between us and separation and isolation, and really what needs to happen is cohesion, to come together, on how it is that we are living on this planet and with each other, and taking care of each other. 

When the mirror has shattered and the illusions about who we are have dissolved, we can’t recognize ourselves in others. This is a collective reckoning for all of us to come to know who we are and how we can live together in a way that is in harmony with how nature intended for us. And once we heal the individual, we can heal the collective.
