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:

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.

Felt pleasant as if slightly altered.
Felt more energetic and increased libido after feeling tired and cranky since other symptoms.
Breakthrough – she expressed her aspirations and purpose clearly; enabled ability to cope and vent. 
A feeling of being connected to others.
Improvement of depression/brain fog. 
Feel very well – and excited to be doing this.
Felt a positive surge of energy after dose.
I feel more protected now that I have taken the CV nosode. I believe that it has provided me with some level of immunity. I am privileged to have access to it, when others are continuing to be fearful.

Main mental symptoms/side effects experienced by participants who took the COVID nosode

Lack of motivation. Mentally unfocussed.
Racing thoughts, clear head, busy working until 11:30pm (usually in bed by 9:30pm).
More restlessness set in due to the daily change in state of affairs.
A little fuzzy thinking for a few hours. Brain fog. 
Lightheaded, vertigo, dizzy. 
Memory problems (can’t remember some words) from first dose. I take supplements for memory (forget words). They eliminated the problem until I took the nosode.
Felt like I was drunk for an hour at noon. It passed quickly. 

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.

Mandatory masks and why I am opposed to them

This is a written transcript of a 5-minute speech given by Sonya McLeod (BA, DCH) to the City Councillors at a council meeting on October 22, 2020 in regards to a proposed Mandatory Mask Policy in Vancouver Civic Facilities. References were emailed to councillors before the meeting took place. All speakers were against the policy, and the proposal was later struck down by council members.

Mandatory masking is not based on good science

Randomized double blind placebo controlled trials are the gold standard of science, and we can neither disprove or prove whether a strategy works without doing these studies. There are no randomized controlled trials which prove that masking reduces transmission of viruses, including the COVID-19 virus. A recent analysis published in May 2020 (1) of 14 randomized controlled trials concludes that face masks do not protect against pandemic influenza infection 

Proper scientific studies done on masking so far to date show either that masking makes no difference, or it may actually increase the rate of virus transmission (for further reading, see references 2-5, below). One very recent study that just came out this week (6), for example, reports that 71% of the people studied who became ill with COVID-19 wore a mask in public at all times.

The health authorities, including Vancouver Coastal Health, have spoken out against mandatory masking. In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, all of the health authorities, including Bonnie Henry, Theresa Tam, Anthony Fauci, The US Surgeon General, the CDC Director and the World Health Organization, advised against the use of masks to stop the spread of COVID-19. A short time later, they changed their minds, not because the science changed, but because of public pressure, and pressure from various lobby groups.

Mandatory masking can be dangerous. And where there is risk, there must be choice.

Science shows that prolonged mask wearing can cause headaches. A 2009 study done in Japan (7) showed that the use of masks did not prevent the common cold (the common cold is a close relative of COVID-19 because it is a type of coronavirus). But the use of masks was strongly associated with an increase in headaches. Another study done in 2005 (8) on the wearing of N95 masks showed that the wearers were more likely to get headaches, dizziness and shortness of breath, vs non mask wearers. A recent study done in 2020 (9) also reported that a whopping 80% of healthcare workers developed headaches as a direct result of wearing PPE (which included the wearing of N95 face masks).

A 2015 study done in Vietnam (10) compared the use of medical masks, cloth masks, and a control group. The cloth mask group had a higher rate of virus transmission. Scientists concluded that increased risk of infection in the cloth mask users was a result of moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration.

Face masks can give the wearer the illusion of protection, which can be dangerous, according to a scientific study published in June 2020 (11). Also, a pre‐symptomatic or mildly infected person wearing a face mask for hours without changing it and without washing their hands every time they touched the mask could paradoxically increase the risk of infecting others.

Humans are social creatures, and our emotional well-being depends on social interactions with other human beings. A study done in Hong Kong in 2013 (12) showed that doctors’ wearing of face masks reduced patients’ ability to relate to and empathize with their doctors.  

Lawsuits Against Mandatory Masking

Dr. James Meehan MD is part of a group of professionals who are suing the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma for their mandatory mask mandate. (13) Dr. Meehan is seeing patients that have facial rashes, fungal infections, and bacterial infections. Reports coming from his colleagues, all over the world, are suggesting that the bacterial pneumonias are on the rise. “Why might that be? Because untrained members of the public are wearing medical masks, repeatedly… in a non-sterile fashion… They’re becoming contaminated. They’re pulling them off of their car seat, off the rearview mirror, out of their pocket, from their countertop, and they’re reapplying a mask that should be worn fresh and sterile every single time.”

The city of Edmonton is facing a $565 million dollar lawsuit over their mandatory mask bylaw (14). The mask bylaw has led to the discarding of disposable masks on the ground, creating unsanitary conditions, which is a health hazard (as well as a hazard to our environment). 

Disposable masks are terrible for the environment

Mask mandates lead to increased mask use, including the increased use of disposable masks. An article in “The Conversation” says that coronavirus face masks are “an environmental disaster that might last generations” (15). The majority of masks are made with long-lasting plastic materials, and will contribute to plastic pollution of the environment, which was already a huge problem before the pandemic. These disposable masks have now made their way into our oceans, according to an article in “The Guardian” – we now have “more masks than jellyfish” in our oceans these days (16).

In Summary:

Masks have not been proven by science to be effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and in fact, if used incorrectly by the general public, masks could actually increase the spread of COVID-19 and could encourage complacency when it comes to other preventative measures such as handwashing. Masking for long periods of time also has health risks, and disposable masks are a threat to our natural environment. Instead, let citizens choose whether to mask or not, and encourage other preventative measures, such as handwashing, and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle.

Homeopathy for Coronavirus (Part 2)

Please refer to part 1 of this series for a brief overview of the typical symptoms of infection with the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) virus.

Homeopathic medicine PrevengHo-vir will be administered to the elderly

Cuba promotes homeopathy as ‘weapon’ against the coronavirus

As scientists around the world speed up clinical trials to find a vaccine for the coronavirus, in April 2020 it was announced that the Cuban government will begin distributing a homeopathic remedy to the elderly and other vulnerable people to mitigate the spread of the disease, a top health official said.

Dr. Francisco Durán, national director of Epidemiology at the Ministry of Public Health, said in a press conference on Sunday that “sublingual drops” of the compound PrevengHo-Vir mitigate “different diseases such as influenza, the common cold, dengue, and emerging viral infections such as this one.”

Dr. Mirtha Rosa Hernandez, head of the Department of the Elderly in Villa Clara, reported that the supply of the preparation began in the Grandparents’ Homes and Elderly Homes of the Santa Clara territory of Cuba, which has 184,000 people over 60 years old, 23.9 percent of the local universe. The medicine is administered by doctors and nurses of the basic working group where the Grandparents’ Homes and Nursing Homes are located in the 13 municipalities of this province.

PrevengHo-Vir Combination Medicine:
Anas berberiae 200
Baptisia tinctora 200
Bascilinum 30
Pyrogenum 200
Eupetorium perf 200
Influezinum 200
Arsenicum Album 200

What? Only 23 pandemic deaths out of 35 million people in a state in India? How did they do it?

Homeopathy floating dispensary using peoples participation
One of the Kerala Government floating homoeopathy dispensaries – the most efficient way to access villagers living in the mangroves. 2018. Dr Isaac Golden (left), Dr Muhammed Rafeeque (middle) and Dr. Leena (right).

According to Dr E.S.Rajendran who practices in Kerala “The total number of people who received the homeopathic medicine Ars alb 30 through Kerala government as of June 1st 2020 was 10 million. An equal number of people have also received the same through voluntary organisations. The remaining population is expected to receive the medicine in another one month.” This distribution was carried out in each district with the help of resident associations and was achievable because there is a huge demand for homeopathy from the people.

For the past five years homeoprophylaxis was successful in ‘contributing a remarkable role in risk reduction activities.’  According to RAECH (Rapid Action Epidemic Control Cell Homoeopathy), the use of Homoeopathic prophylaxis medicine in epidemics was well established during an epidemic of Chikungunya.

The people and the government of Kerala has appreciated the work of RAECH in the mitigation of Cholera, Gastroenteritis, Japanese encephalitis, Dengue, and Chikungunya.

Perspectives in the Homeopathic approach to Covid-19

In Brazil, more than 500 of Dr. Rajan Sankaran’s colleagues gave Camphora 1m to more than a million people.  Based on the good results, the municipalities of 3 cities in Brazil are now distributing Camphora 1M to more than a million citizens. In  Romania 1500 high-risk people were given Camphora with almost no incidence of the disease. Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, the MD of one of India’s top Auto companies, was one of the first ones to use it. In Pune, about 25,000 of his employees and their families were given Camphora 1M, in mid-March. Until today there is not a single positive case from this group even though Pune city has a very high incidence of Covid-19. Mr. Bajaj suggested to the Police Commissioner of the city of Pune, who gave Camphora to 9000 policemen. 6 weeks later, in these very high-risk individuals out of 9000, only 5 of them developed Covid positive and all 5 were mild cases

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

For more information about using homeopathy for risk reduction, please refer to Part 1 of this series.

Doctors Suspect Mystery COVID-19 Lung Problems, Plea for New Approach

Some doctors are questioning the way ventilators are being used for people with serious cases of COVID-19. Why? More data shows a high death rate for patients treated under current ventilator practices.

At the same time, these doctors are saying their patients behave more like they have high altitude sickness than a viral infection. They talk about two different types of COVID-19 patients with differing severe lung problems.

While some patients respond as expected, doctors also describe patients whose lungs seem relatively fine, but who still can’t get enough oxygen into their blood. These patients may make up the majority with severe infections.

Some COVID-19 patients have little trouble “blowing up the balloon” of their lungs, yet still suffer from low oxygen. For patients of COVID-19 who show these symptoms, Brooklyn emergency room physician Dr. Kyle-Sidell began to apply an “oxygen first” method. This means getting patients’ blood-oxygen levels as high as possible, and doing so using the lowest air pressure possible, he said.

Covid-19 had us all fooled, but now we might have finally found its secret

A mountain of anecdotal evidence has come out of NYC, Italy, Spain,
etc. about COVID-19 and characteristics of patients who get seriously ill. It’s not only piling up but now leading to a general field-level consensus backed up by a few previously little-known studies that we’ve had it all wrong the whole time.

There is no ‘pneumonia’ nor ARDS. At least not the ARDS with established protocols and procedures we’re familiar with. Ventilators are not only the wrong solution, but high pressure intubation can actually wind up causing more damage than without, not to mention complications from tracheal scarring and ulcers given the duration of intubation often required.

COVID-19 causes prolonged and progressive hypoxia (starving your body of oxygen) by binding to the heme groups in hemoglobin in your red blood cells. People are simply desaturating (losing o2 in their blood), and that’s what eventually leads to organ failures that kill them, not any form of
ARDS or pneumonia. All the damage to the lungs you see in CT scans are from the release of oxidative iron from the hemes; this overwhelms the natural defenses against pulmonary oxidative stress and causes that nice, always-bilateral ground glass opacity in the lungs. Patients returning for re-hospitalization days or weeks after recovery suffering from apparent delayed post-hypoxic leukoencephalopathy strengthen the notion COVID-19
patients are suffering from hypoxia despite no signs of respiratory ‘tire out’ or fatigue.

Without the iron ion, hemoglobin can no longer bind to oxygen. Once all the
hemoglobin is impaired, the red blood cell is essentially turned into a Freightliner truck cab with no trailer and no ability to store its cargo.. it is useless and just running around with COVID-19 virus attached to its porphyrin. All these useless trucks running around not delivering oxygen is what starts to lead to desaturation, or watching the patient’s o2 levels drop. It is INCORRECT to assume traditional ARDS and in doing so, you’re
treating the WRONG DISEASE. Think of it a lot like carbon monoxide poisoning, in which CO is bound to the hemoglobin, making it unable to carry oxygen.

How does chloroquine work? Same way as it does for malaria. You see, malaria is this little parasite that enters the red blood cells and starts eating hemoglobin as its food source. The reason chloroquine works for malaria is the same reason it works for COVID-19 — while not fully understood, it is suspected to bind to DNA and interfere with the ability to work magic on hemoglobin. The same mechanism that stops malaria from getting its hands on hemoglobin and gobbling it up seems to do the same to COVID-19 (essentially little snippets of DNA in an envelope) from binding to it. On top of that, Hydroxychloroquine (an advanced descendant of regular old chloroquine) lowers the pH which can interfere with the replication of the virus. Again, while the full details are not known, the entire premise of this potentially ‘game changing’ treatment is to prevent hemoglobin from being interfered with, whether due to malaria or COVID-19.

Coronavirus: 18 nurses at Pune hospital test positive, doctor uses HCQ, homeopathy

Eighteen nurses at a private hospital in Pune tested positive for Covid-19 on April 18, a doctor said on Sunday.

“A week ago, 600 of the medical staff were tested for coronavirus and out of these, 18 nurses have been tested positive,” Dr Purvez Grant, Managing Trustee at Ruby Hall Clinic said.

Speaking exclusive to India Today TV, Dr Purvez Grant said that 18 nurses have tested positive but no one has any critical symptoms. It was 15 days back that his 3,500-member staff at Ruby Hally clinic was administered with Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), he further said.

Purvez Grant said that by administering HCQ along with homeopathy, the complications in Covid-19 patients have reduced tremendously. “In fact, there are no complications in any of my patients. Homoeopathy and HCQ together have worked positively as all of the 18 nurses don’t have respiration problem,” he said.

Natural and Homeopathic Remedies for COVID-19

In case of infection, an individualized consultation with a professional homeopath is recommended. Please consult your local homeopath, or try the following help line:

Dr. Paul Herscu believes that the majority of people in this epidemic need a chronic remedy, not an acute or genus epidemicus remedy. This situation is unlike most flu epidemics where people need acute remedies. He believes that only 15% of COVID-19 patients need acute remedies, such as Bryonia. The most common chronic remedies that Dr. Herscu has used for the pandemic are Sulphur and Lyc, Phos, and Ars; and then Nat mur and Nux vomica. These are the chronic remedies that cover the constitutional states most affected by COVID-19. So far in their clinic, Dr. Amy Rothenberg and Dr. Herscu have use homeopathy with approx. 200 COVID-19 patients, none of whom have been admitted to the hospital.

As of May 3, 2020 Jeremy Sherr supervised the use of homeopathic remedies for 204 coronavirus cases, with a 93% success rate. Out of those 204 cases, 131 got very much better, and 58 got much better. Only 12 got a bit better and 5 cases experienced no change. Sherr has currently had the most success with using the following remedies: Acon, Ars-x (alb,iod), Ant tart, Bryonia, Gels, Kali Bi, Merc-x, Ozone, Phos, Phos-ac, Stann, Spig. Sometimes he has found that higher potencies are needed for COVID-19 cases, such as 1M or 10M.

Petr Simeon Gajdos (Czechia) has repeatedly used the remedy Ozone/Ozonum successfully during the COVID-19 pandemic. He believes this remedy is well indicated during these modern times, due to the ecosystem disruption that is happening around the world. During the proving of Ozone, provers felt disconnected from others, and divided from their environment, like they were in a bubble, which matches with the state of modern-day society during the pandemic. Global warming, fires, pollution and smoke all lead to an increase of ozone in our atmosphere. It is worth noting that dust and particulates are vehicles for viruses.

Dr. Robin Murphy states that 5G radiation weakens our immune system making us more susceptible to coronavirus. 5G also suppresses melatonin levels. Murphy points out that kids don’t often have severe coronavirus symptoms because melatonin depletion increases with age. Adequate melatonin levels can make the COVID-19 infection less deadly and it also protects the lungs. Melatonin Dosage for Covid-19 Infection: 1 mg, 5 mgs, 10 mgs, up to 50 mgs.

As per Dr. Robin Murphy, Dr. James Robb, a pathologist who carried out some of the early work on coronaviruses back in the 1970s, claims that zinc lozenges are the “silver bullet” against the coronavirus. Dr. Robb referred to research that had demonstrated an inhibition of the replication of many viruses, including coronaviruses, by exposure to zinc. He indicated that this could also be the case for the virus that causes COVID-19 disease, but pointed out that he has no experimental support for the claim. When we speak of zinc supplements, we are not referring to metallic zinc, but to one of its salts, such as zinc gluconate, zinc acetate or zinc citrate. Current evidence indicates that up to 150 mg of zinc a day over a short period does not result in zinc toxicity. Maintenance dose: 15-30 mg. Therapeutic dose: 50-80 mg.

Dr. Andre Saine has found Bryonia to be the most useful remedy for all stages of COVID-19 infection. For the severe and critical states, his team has used many remedies successfully but the most commonly and successfully prescribed have been: Bry., Ant-t., Ars., Carbn-o., Carb-v., Op., Hyos. Remedies he has used in the critical stages include: Bryonia, Antimonium tartaricum, Carboneum oxygenisatum, Hyoscyamus, Opium, Carbo vegetabilis, and Ammonium carbonicum.

In cases where well indicated remedies for COVID-19 remedies don’t work as they should, Ton Jansen (Holland) has used the COVID-19 nosode successfully. Clients who need this remedy are usually fearful of the disease, is obedient with lockdown measures, sees everyone as a potential carrier of the virus, and can have a fear of dirt.

Homeopathy for Post-COVID Syndrome

According to a presentation done by Dr. Andre Saine, many COVID-19 sufferers characteristically have persisting symptoms, such as daily episodes of low-grade fever marked by great weakness for weeks and months, or experience of relapsing cycles every few days.

A post-COVID-19 viral syndrome is one potential explanation for the chronic fatigue, headaches, joint and muscle pain, and cognitive fuzziness that can linger after a viral illness. 

One of the most common post-viral syndromes is the myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), which according to the Institute of Medicine afflicts 836,000 to 2.5 million Americans of which up to 91% remain undiagnosed. It is estimated that three-quarters of these cases were triggered by viral or bacterial infections. CFS is not new, as there has been at least 75 documented outbreaks of CFS since the 1930s. It is now known that different viruses can trigger an inflammatory response that will culminate in the same chronic endgame. In a study of 233 Hong Kong residents who survived the SARS epidemic of 2003, about 40% had chronic-fatigue problems after three years or so, and 27% met the CDC’s criteria for ME/CFS. Other studies following SARS and MERS suggest an even higher proportion (50%) of survivors develop ME/CFS.

Neuroinvasion and neurotropism are common features of human coronaviruses. There is mounting evidence that SARS-CoV-2 impacts the brain similarly with potentially long-lasting consequences. In a study of COVID-19 patients, one-third experienced neurological symptoms, including agitation, confusion, dizziness, headaches and cognitive impairment. It is however not clear whether the virus is directly infecting neurons, or it is the result of an inflammatory immune response or it is due to damage from oxygen deprivation, like after carbon monoxide poisoning. 

In one study out of China, more than a third of 214 people hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 had neurological symptoms, including dizziness, headaches, impaired consciousness, vision, taste and smell impairment and nerve pain while they were ill. These symptoms were more common in patients with severe cases, where the incidence increased to 46.5%. Another study in France found neurologic features in 58 of 64 or 91% of critically ill COVID-19 patients.

Persistent neuromuscular abnormalities have been observed amongst SARS survivors. In a study involving 128 health care workers with musculoskeletal complaints 2-years after the SARS infection, it was found that they experienced difficulties in performing 9 activities of daily living and work tasks, which persisted despite acute rehabilitation measures received.

Data on SARS, MERS and now COVID-19 patients show that pulmonary function may never be restored to baseline in those who developed pneumonia. In a study, 71 SARS survivors were followed from 2003 until 2018 and found that more than a third had residual scarring, which can mean reduced lung capacity. In 55 MERS pneumonia survivors, CT scan after one year still showed the ground-glass changes in the periphery of their lungs. In one study, 91% of the patients hospitalized with COVID-19 were diagnozed with pneumonia. One study from China found that the ground-glass appearance showed up in scans of 77% of COVID-19 patients.

Conclusion: SARS-CoV-2 can attach to human cells in many parts of the body and penetrate many major organs and tissues, including the heart, kidneys, brain, and even blood vessels, and leave its victims with multiple short and long-term sequellae with a heavy burden on a considerable segment of the population for decades to come. While some patients may fully recover, others will suffer long-term damage, including lung scarring, heart damage, and neurological and mental health effects. 

Remedies for Post-Covid Syndrome as per Dr. Andre Saine: Scutteleria, Conium, Kali Phos, Gels, Avena, Carboneum oxygenisatum (symptoms of covid are similar to symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning).

Homeopathy for Mental Issues Post COVID-19/Lockdown

For clients with COVID-related anxiety, which may include fear of dirt and/or disease, Dr. Rukshin Master (Singapore) recommends Ars , Calc, Carc, Phos, Puls, and Psorinum.

Anoinette Byrne (Ireland) recommends the matridonal remedies for clients who are having issues with transitioning to regular life again after having been in lockdown. For these issues, she recommends remedies such as Placenta, Aqua amniota humana (amniotic fluid), Umbilicus humanus, and Vernix caseosa.

Homeopathy for Hospital Related Issues and Ventilator Side Effects

According to Dr. Robin Murphy, some patients who survive COVID-19 can experience longer-term physical complications including from organ failure that came up while the patient was on a ventilator, and the potential for long-term lung damage. Researchers say that a minimum of 30% of patients in intensive care units (ICU) suffer some form of mental dysfunction, such as anxiety, depression, and most commonly, delirium. SEDATIVES: DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS: Sedation is commonly used to make patients on mechanical ventilation more comfortable, and less anxious. But sedation can have serious side effects, including delirium, that can endanger a patient’s life. The incidence of delirium in patients who are mechanically ventilated is around 80%. Dr. Murphy recommends the following remedies to help with the various side effects of being put on a ventilator: Am-carb, Ars, Aurum, Carcinosin, China, Kali Brom, Opium, Silica, and Stannum.

Dr. Farokh Master recommends the following remedies, which help with issues related to weaning patients off ventilators: Carb veg, Mustard gas, Hydrocynic acid, Laurocerasus, Lobelia pupuras, Solanin, and Solaninum Aceticum.

For symptoms of PTSD after returning from the hospital, Dr. Farokh Master recommends: Plumbum, Opium, Conium, and Aur-m-n. And for depression from prolonged care in hospital he recommends: Phos, Kali Carb, and Saccharum off.
