In continuation of our last interview seccion, we present here a second discussion with Dr. Golden, the living legend who is considered a world authority on Homeopathy, interviewed by Dr. Punit Srivastava, Chief Editor, Homeopathic Horizon. Here he explains about What Nosodes are... He also advises how nosodes can be applied in Covid-19 pandemic.
The author presents the subject of nosodes through unusual cases, comparative study and his reflections on Syphilinum. Cases of Multiple corns, PCOD with sterility, Infantile vomiting, Acute urticaria, Schizophrenia with GB syndrome and acute bronchial asthma are presented. Five nosodes viz. Psorinum, Medorrhinum, Tuberculinum, Syphilinum and Carcinocinum.
Bowel nosodes are the medicines prepared from cultures of non lactose fermenting bacterial flora of the intestinal tract. Though they are not the morbid product of disease, but they come under nosodes. This paper gives an introduction of Bowel nosodes, their scope and lists the common bowel nosodes with their indications.
Subjective sensations, feelings and behaviour of the patients are characteristic points of notification which needs to be considered during homoeopathic case taking for selection of the appropriate similimum. Mental generals of nosodes are equally significant for such choice. Tuberculinum is one such clinically verified drug.
This paper discusses the scope of Nosodes according to Homeopathy principles. It also discusses indications and utility of Bowel Nosodes.
This paper presents Dr. Shah’s views on scientific efficacy of Nosodes in earlier epidemics and pandemics. The author concludes that evidence of homeopathy as anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial in cell-lines, animals and human models are enough clues for exploration of common homeopathic anti-microbial medicines.
The use of nosodes for the prevention of epidemic diseases (isoprophylaxis), i.e., selected based on the 'principle of etiological identity' with full neglect of symptom-based individualization and pathogenetic trials, is not supported by the homeopathic epistemological model.
In this paper Prof. Anisur Rahman Khuda-Bukhsh very beautifully pens down the challenges in development of Corona Nosode and its utilization in the prevention and treatment of Covid-19 disease. Can a nosode prepared from SARS-CoV-2 or Novel Corona Virus -19 be a suitable homeopathic protector of Covid-19 disease?
To stay healthy has become a constant struggle ...a far-fetched dream for all of us. The present pandemic of Covid-19 has made us realize the compromised health condition and low immunity we possess. As a homeopath we know that if the inner terrain is weak we are bound to be more sick and diseased.
