This paper discusses benefits from the widespread use of appropriate Homeoprophylaxis interventions, including saving lives and preventing suffering scientists. HP is potentially valuable, especially in situations where vaccination is not possible either due to there being no vaccine for the disease
This paper discusses the significance of using Homeopathy in Epidemics and the Guidelines for conducting a clinical trial to prove the effectiveness of homeopathy/Genus epidemicus in Epidemic outbreak. It also presents a Strategic approach for epidemic management including formation of the Epidemic control group in Homoeopathy.
This research paper discusses the effectiveness of homoeoprophylaxis against Leptospirosis, a zoonotic disease (transmitted between humans and animals) caused by infection with pathogenic strains of Gram-negative bacterium Leptospira spp in Cuba. Homeoprophylaxis treatment included a prime administration of 2 doses of nosoLEP 200C
Typhoid fever is the result of systemic infection mainly by Salmonella typhi and S. Paratyphi A or B. The disease may occur sporadically, epidemically, or endemically. Arsenic alb (Genus epidemicus) had shown its curative as well as the preventive action. The findings are encouraging to open avenues for further studies on using genus epidemicus for treatment and prevention of epidemic diseases.
In this Historical Paper of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, he discusses about the Asiatic Cholera epidemic, its signs and symptoms and the role of Camphora in it. It is reproduced here from The Lesser Writings by R.E. Dudgeon for the readers to understand the concept of Homeoprophylaxis.
An Epidemic (derived from Greek words epi "upon or above" and demos "people") is the rapid spread of disease to a large number of people in a given population within a short period of time. Epidemic diseases are the scourge of human civilization. Time and again survival of human societies has been threatened by epidemics.
Dr. Ajit Kulkarni in this interview by a homeopath Roma Buchimensky discusses about the COVID-19 Pandemic and its homeopathic approach. He also addresses the day by day progression of the disease and associated pathologic changes. He also elaborates the concept of homeopathic prophylaxis, homeopathic vaccination and Genus epidemicus. Dr. Kulkarni further explains the miasmatic influence and discusses the stage wise likely remedies for prevention and treatment Covid-19.
Similia Similibus Curentur is the foundation of Homeopathy; by applying the principle of therapeutic similarity, homeopathy seeks to stimulate the organism to react against its own disturbs. For homeopathic medicines to awaken effective homeostasis responses they must be individualized, this means that they must be chosen according to their similarity to the set of characteristic symptoms in patients.
Homeopathy has been used to treat epidemics since the time of Hahnemann. Different strategies have been used for it, including individualization, combination remedies, genus epidemicus, and isopathy. This article explores the evidence for each of these approaches. While individualization is the gold standard, it is impractical to use on a widespread basis.
Genus epidemicus remedies play a major role for selecting specific homoeoprophylaxis in epidemics. These are specific remedies selected by group anamnesis to target against a definite infectious disease. The historical review of use of homeopathic medicines as genus epidemicus shows that if given properly it can be used for both preventive and curative purposes. This paper gives an evidence based review of how specific prophylaxis have effectively controlled epidemics
