Malaria & HomeopathyCan you help?
Hahnemann's first homeopathic discoveries were in the field of malaria.
Homeopath’s all over the web are happy to cite Hahnemann's work on Malaria as a founding homeopathic breakthrough and proof that it works.
Yet in 2005, over 1,000,000 people, mainly children under 5, will die from malaria.
What a tragedy. What went wrong? Hahnemann must be turning in his grave.
I am looking for any information that connects homeopathy to the successful treatment of malaria in modern times; or any research in this field.
Many thanks for anything you can add to my efforts.

Some confusion here . Hahnemann's work on Cinchona bark , is quoted because it was the first time anyone had used a raw substance that cures[malaria] to produce the symptoms of any illness [malaria] in a body [ his own], that was not infected [with malaria].
There are 2 ways to look at this
1] every individual , when infected with anything [including malaria] will produce symptoms that differ from most other cases .
One can only prescribe on the symptoms the individual produces and these may call for many differing remedies
So there is no one remedy that will deal with malaria!.
2] is this true?.
When there was a cholera outbreak in the late 19th century a series of three remedies one after the other cured about 80% of cases .
So why isnt homeopathy trying to deal with malaria in the same way that it dealt with Cholera ?.
passkey last decadeYes, good question!
There is every likelihood that homeopathy can treat malaria. But it is not used on a grand scale by any health authorities or charities.
Is what true? Yes 1,000,000 deaths per year is a conservative minimum, mainly children under 5 and mainly in Africa. And that is a lot of Tsunamis. The mosquito is the world's biggest human killing animal.
What would Hahnemann think?
Thank you for you reply.
Paul19 last decadeA thing I did not mention is that there exists a Nosode , called Malaria Officinalis .
It originated with a Dr Bowen of Wabash. It was developed by Boericke & Tafal .
A number of cases were cured and written up in the Materia Medica of Nosodes by Dr H. C. Allen.
passkey last decadeDoes malarai officinalis and cinchonna bark are same thing?
Are china and cinchonna same thing?

CHina and Cinchona are the same. My doctor used to give Ars 6 alternate with Ipecac 6 3 times each daily for 3 days or so. It had also helped in the Malaria attacking the brain for which people would have otherwise been hospitalised and all got cured. Hope this has been of some use.
maya_hari last decadeThank you for the information on Ars 6 and Ipecac 6.
Please will you help with some more questions?
Which country is this in? How many people were treated? What was the success rate? Which strain of malaria? Is homeopathy used widely for malaria in your country?
Thank you again.

I understand there is no remedy to prevent malaria, but is there a remedy someone can take if he fall ill from malaria?
Malaria has not all the time the same "face". The people I know with malaria are very tired have high fever, feel dizzy and nauseous ect.
So is it more clever to treat this individual symptoms instead to look for
only one "Malaria remedy"?
