Abstract

Coronavirus disease COVID-19 caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), causes pneumonia-like symptoms such as fever, dry cough, and breathlessness.

Due to lack of definitive treatment, physicians worldwide have started exploring repurposed drugs, but, without any major breakthrough. Homeopathy has a history of offering preventive as well as curative medication in earlier epidemics and pandemics.

Four cases of COVID-19 were treated with homeopathy alongside the standard care provided by the Hospital to which they were admitted. Two out of the four cases were high-risk patients with co-morbidity. Three classic cases of prevention of COVID-19 in very close contact has also been mentioned. All four cases including the high-risk cases of COVID-19 recovered fully without any complications and prevention was achieved in close contact cases with the use of Homeopathy.

These cases will suggest the approach to deal with real cases, deciding and offering treatments during pandemics. This will also shape the present & future homeopaths to present nothing but the truth, so that, the Homeopathic science grows to its highest potential.

Discussion

All four cases including the high-risk cases of COVID-19 recovered fully without any complications and prevention was achieved in close contact cases with the use of Homeopathy.

Arsenic 30 has been reported in the literature as a useful medicine for the prevention of COVID-19 and has also been advised by CCRH and the Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India. There are no reported adverse effects or complications in the patients.

On comparing the duration of illness with improvement outcome, it is observed that similimum whether Arsenic album, Camphor, Aconite or Belladonna all were effective in preventing the severe symptoms of COVID-19 and found to be effective in full recovery of COVID-19. It is therefore suggested that more studies should be undertaken, to further ascertain the usefulness of homeopathy in the treatment of COVID-19 patients, as adjuvant or standard therapy.

The debate of Genus Epidemicus continues, Homeopathic physicians from all over the world have come up with different GE and all claiming their choice of GE to be the best. Here we see that the keynote prescription based on the clinical presentation is the best answer. It would be nice to ascertain the action of homeopathic medicine, as to whether, they act via immunomodulatory effect, or via competitive receptor blocking or some other unknown mechanism. Such discovery shall give hope in working towards shaping medication in such a fashion that a targeted yet holistic approach can be adopted. Thus, eliminating the ambiguity.

QUICK PRESCRIBING TIPS

Symptom Medicine*
Fear of pandemic, fear of death, with or without fever. Arsenic 30 thrice a day.
Sudden onset of any symptom with fear of death. Aconite 30 thrice a day.
Sudden onset of symptoms with congestion. Belladonna 30 thrice a day.
Fever with muscular pain, with or without cough. Bryonia 30 thrice a day.
Deeper/Bone pain with or without fever and flu-like symptoms. Eupatorium 30 thrice a day.
Dry cough, itching burning throat with dryness. Wyethia 30 thrice a day.
Flu-like symptoms with extreme weakness Gelsemium 30 thrice a day.

* To be repeated more frequently based on the severity of symptoms, the dose was reduced as the patient improved.

Conclusion

The present cases bring to light the usefulness of homeopathic medicines as adjuvant therapy in treating COVID-19 patients. It has also proved beneficial as preventive and in preventing the complications in high-risk COVID-19 patients. It demands further research on larger sample size to further ascertain the usefulness of homeopathy in the treatment of COVID-19 patients, as adjuvant or standard therapy.
