Remedies for epidemic Chikungunya & Degue

In several Indian metropolitan cities the two mosuito borne viral diseases viz. Chikungunya & Dengue, have play havoc.

Several Doctors and patients are using homeopathic remedies Polyporus pinicola & Eupatorium perf respectively for these viral menaces almost as specifics and getting good results as well and so did I in most cases. They are the 'genus epidemicus' for these two viral diseases.

But in fair number of caes I found these medicines either failing to give a desired relief or producing some untowardly adverse effects. One of my patient's relative who took Polyporus pin. as prophylactic against developed typical symptoms of Chikungunya 5-6 days after the dose. These incidences made me rethink whether we should just stick to only these two remedies or should we keep second sortie of treatment handy if these two remedies fail, though occasionally.

I worked out on this and treated my patients with other well indicated remedies time to time with very satisfying results. My observations are as follows:

For Chikungunya: Use one of the as indicated (in the order of their preferance):
1. Rhus tox: (curative & preventive)
2. Lycopodium.
3. Sulphur.
4. Nux vom.

For Dengue:
1. Ipecacuanha: for hemorrhagic dengue and low platelet count. Also for shock / ARDS (though rare).
2. China: for hemorrhagic dengue / shock
3. Arsenicum album: in shock / sudden collapse & ARDS.
4. Suplhur: if joint pains and rashes are marked.

Other rarely indicate remedies are Verat (collpse wt coldenss), Lach (Hemorrhagic)

I have good result through this mode of prescribing (selecting similimum when genus epidemicus failed or was insufficient).

I want to treat and help maximum vivtims but there are only few to moderate number of cases in my area of practice. So, my experience alone isn't sufficient for comming to conclusions. Therefore, I request my colleagues to use these hints and try to help maximum number of ailing humanity. I am aware some of the Homeopaths might already be working on similar line of treatment, though.

I would request non-medical public not to try medicines on these hints on their own but seek professional assistance for better & safer outcomes.

Please post your observations / experiences here.

I just forgot to add some interesting observation about Ipec and platelet count.

I have used Ipecac in Aplastic anaemia for 2-3 patients and it increases platelets very quickly; one of them being my own younger brother. His platelet count had fallen to 6000 and he had started bleeding continuously through nose. Ipecac 200 single dose stopped bleeding in 2 minutes and next day platelet count was 36000. 5 days after the dose it was 155000! Homeopathy has plenty of miracles only people need to give it an opportunity.

You are very right that "genus epidemicus" , will not help hundred percent of the cases.

In fact, the genus epidemicus medicine for a particular disease may also change the next year/ the year after.

So, it is always better to be prepared for alternatives, in case the chosen medicine fails. There is no better way than to depend on the symptoms being presented.

All the medicines you mentioned along with their indications make sense and are worth trying.

Hope we will get feedback as requested by you.

Please keep contributing.
