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?

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.

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: homeopathyhelpnow.com

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.

The Government of India, Ministry of AYUSH, has put together a booklet, Guidelines for Homeopathic Practitioners for COVID-19. This well-referenced guide can be found here: https://www.ayush.gov.in/docs/homeopathy-guidelines.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0315cd1YxRcZUx5K-KSHKR5Q-1fmZjKSfSMnBPd06cMuRCkHrL4uYIOsw

Please refer to Part 1 of this series for further discussion about using homeopathic remedies for COVID-19.

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.
