This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Arsenic Album shouldn't be given without its symptoms. Not only that, no medicine should be given without symptoms. Corona disease symptoms is most likely to Arsenic Album. Again same disease may show different symptom in different person. Homeopathy is based on symptoms, not on disease.
To prevent corona disease, we may prevent it by saving ourselves. Corona virus spreads by breath and touch. So we may wear mask and hand gloves.
When it is affected in human body, we should apply symptoms wise remedy. And shouldn't apply making the disease basis.

Dr Farokh Master has suggested using Justicia adhatoda 3x, 10 drops daily once in a a teaspoonful of water as prophylaxis for coronavirus. He said it will increase your IgE levels to fight the virus.

This is from his FB page (and it already been added in complete repertory) He always suggests interesting remedies for many different conditions so you may be interested in joining the group; Dr Farokh Master’s Masterclass. He is one of the great masters of classical homeopathy.

Homeopathy has been used to treat epidemic diseases since the time of Hahnemann, who used Belladonna to treat scarlet fever. Since then, several approaches using homeopathy for epidemic diseases have been proposed, including individualization, combination remedies, genus epidemicus, and isopathy.


The homeopathic research literature was searched to find examples of each of these approaches and to evaluate which were effective.

There is good experimental evidence for each of these approaches. While individualization is the gold standard, it is impractical to use on a widespread basis. Combination remedies can be effective but must be based on the symptoms of a given epidemic in a specific location. Treatment with genus epidemicus can also be successful if based on data from many practitioners. Finally, isopathy shows promise and might be more readily accepted by mainstream medicine due to its similarity to vaccination.


Several different homeopathic methods can be used to treat epidemic diseases. So writing off ARS ALB is not recommended,since it has been recommended by AYUSH.

Usually the physician does not immediately perceive the complete picture of the epidemic in the first case that he treats. since the collective disease reveals itself in the totality

of signs and symptoms only after several cases have been closely observed. Nevertheless. an observant physician can often come so close after seeing only one or two patients

that he becomes aware of the characteristic picture of the epidemic and can already find its appropriate homoeopathic remedy.


AS PER DOCTOR FAROKH MASTER.
Many people are asking me what rubrics I selected to come to the conclusion of Justicia Adhatoda these are some of them from the synthesis repertory (10.5.003) Radar with my additions.

Genus Epidemicus-ARSENIC ALB 30-CORONA VIRUS.Recommended by AYUSH(The Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa Rigpa and Homoeopathy (abbreviated as AYUSH) is purposed with developing education, research and propagation of indigenous alternative medicine systems in India. The Ministry is headed by a Minister of State (Independent Charge))

The AYUSH ministry on Wednesday issued a health advisory and recommended that homeopathic and unani medicines could be effective in the prevention of novel coronavirus (nCoV) infections.

The advisory was issued following a meeting on Tuesday of the scientific advisory board of the Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH) under the Ministry of AYUSH to discuss ways and means for prevention of the nCoV infection through homoeopathy, the ministry said in a statement.

It has recommended that homoeopathic medicine Arsenicum album 30 could be taken empty stomach daily for three days as a prophylactic medicine against the infection.

The dose should be repeated after one month by following the same schedule in case the nCoV infection prevails in the community, the advisory said, adding that the same has also been advised for prevention of influenza-like illness.

It also suggests some Ayurvedic medicines, Unani decoctions and home remedies which can be useful in symptomatic management of nCoV infections.

The advisory further suggests general hygienic measures for prevention of air-borne infections such as maintaining personal hygiene, washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

The ministry has advised covering face while coughing or sneezing and preferably using an N95 mask while travelling or working in public places to avoid droplet transmissions.

"If you suspect Corona Viral infection, wear a mask and contact your nearest hospital immediately," the advisory said.

It also recommended prophylactic measures/ immunomodulatory drugs as per Ayurvedic practices and taking measures to strengthen the immune system through a healthy diet and lifestyle practices.



Novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a large family of viruses that causes illnesses ranging from common cold to acute respiratory syndromes. The virus that has so far killed 132 people and affected at least 6,000 others in China is a novel strain not seen before.

It has emerged from a seafood and animal market in Wuhan city and is suspected to have spread as far as the United States.

In India, many people are under observation in hospitals for suspected coronavirus infection in several states including Maharashtra, Goa, Odisha and the national capital. People returning to the country after visiting China are being regularly screened for the deadly virus at airports across the country.

According to the World Health Organisation, the common symptoms of the novel coronavirus strain include respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Thank you Anuj. I'm in awe of your knowledge. Unfortunately, people who don't understand homeopathy keep commenting everywhere trying to put down Homeoprophylaxis.
For those of us who are keen to understand Homeoprophylaxis, Dr Isaac Golden book is a must have.

Can you take the homeopathic remedy of Covid-19 as prevention;
Thank you
 
Foteini last week
There is no remedy in homeopathy to prevent any disease. Some can be used as tonic to increase IEG level. It helps a person to fight against disease.
I hope, Justicia Adhatoda in Q, 1x, 2x and 3x may help to give energy to fight against any virus.

I'm going to give a contrarian view. Prophylaxis is possible with homeopathy if a right preventive medicine is found. This has been difficult in this covid mess--however homeopathic study groups and stalwart practitioners have suggested some medicines. The suggestions have ranged from Thuja [Banerjea protocol], Camphora[followers of Rajan Sankaran], Bryonia, Gelsemium, Eupatorium based on local homeopaths/doctors and Oscillococcinum by Robin Murphy---this is not an exhaustive list ---I might have missed some.

If people are going to take preventive medicines they have to be mindful of two facts---1) prophylaxis is not going to be effective 100% 2) Sensitive people can develop symptoms from homeopathic medicines---per se this is not a problem, but people who are not deeply knowledgeable can panic with new symptoms not knowing how to manage and in prevailing circumstances can also be falsely labelled as sick.

However people with underlying conditions like sugar, BP, cardio vascular issues, COPD, some chronic and terminally ill patients will be at more risk, for others this may be like a cold or a flu. By extension elderly are at more risk than young people.

Some interesting tid bits about this:

'A' blood group patients are found to be at more risk.

Men are at more risk than women.

Zinc supplementation, Vit. D supplementation have been found to be helpful.

Immunity strengthening measures can always be taken---they could be just taking vit C[as simple as boiled lemon], or turmeric/ginger/pepper[as simple as pepper water] supplementation, tissue salts/prophylactic medicine in homeopathy etc----but they should not be relied upon as 100% Absolute Protection!!

Update 1:

Based on anecdotes, empirical data coming in from hotspots around the world there are a few homeopathic remedies that seem promising.

Symptom-free people remained that way or had milder forms with Bryonia and Lobelia purpurascens. This info. might be helpful for those who want to take prophylaxis and for those who have been exposed to infected people or those who are in essential services and are duty bound to be at work.

Initial symptoms starting with low grade fever, less thirst or no thirst, dizziness, fainting, fatigue were helped with Gelsemium; chilliness, anxiety, fear, fever were helped with Ars alb. Symptoms starting with dry cough, fever, pain with movement could choose Bryonia as the first remedy.

Many people with critical symptoms develop symptoms like cough, fever, shortness of breath only after the lung lesions have developed(show up as ground glass opacities in scan). Beryllium metallicum is a good preventative for such fibrosis related conditions.
