Apart from Cuba, India is the only country to officially explore homoeopathy as part of its covid-19 prevention, treatment and research protocol. So far, it has only been on mild and asymptomatic patients. But soon, he adds, they will start testing homoeopathy add-on medicines on patients with severe symptoms as well.
India’s had a high rate of recovery cases from COVID-19. Over 2.8 crore people out of approx 2.9 crore people beat the infection, that’s almost a 90% recovery rate. However there is a subset of patients, who despite beating their COVID infection, will continue to experience health complications that last for months. This is called ‘Long COVID’ or Post-COVID wherein patients suffer from health problems such as weakness, lung complications, gastric issues, depression and hair loss.
Homeopathy has been repeatedly used during different epidemics to improve immunity. In fact, the phrase, ‘genus epidemicus’ was coined by the founder of homoeopathy, Dr Samuel Hahnemann, to indicate the remedy which could serve as a prophylactic during epidemics. Amongst the more recent illnesses, it seems to indicate that homoeopathic treatment and prophylaxis for dengue and swine flu may be beneficial. An important example of improved immunity against a specific infectious disease using homoeopathic medicines is the story of leptospirosis in Cuba. What is most relevant about this is that leptospirosis is a bacterial infection that humans contract from animals and the usual prophylaxis prepared with conventional medicines were unavailable.
Homoeopathic prescriptions rely on the collection of symptoms to identify medicines that may treat or protect against disease. The wealth of information available in peer-reviewed literature allows homoeopaths to suggest remedies which may be helpful. However, only time and an evidence-based approach in assessing the protective effect of the different homoeopathic medicines being considered will allow us to determine which ones have had an impact. As we get more time to understand the nature of this new virus and how the human body reacts to it, advice from doctors and public health agencies may change. What remains constant is that the simple acts of wearing a mask, washing your hands, keeping social distance, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth, drastically reduce our chances of contracting an infection like COVID-19.
