Individualistic study and approach
WHO has announced
the Swine flu as pandemic and the incidents are still

Homoeopathy has its own merits in prophylaxis of an epidemic outburst.
Dr. Hahneman in 1789, declared Belladona as genus epidemicus for
scarlet fever, which successfully saved the lives in Germany.
When the Cholera was epidemic in 1849, Camphor, Veratrum Album
and Cuprum Met were successfully used.

When the Dengue fever was reported, Eupatorium Perfoliatum, the
Genus Epidemicus saved many lives.
the public is realizing the efficacy of Homoeopathy, in building
natural immunity in an individual without side effects. We know
that the living beings are being surrounded by billions of infections
and infestations. We know that each and every infection can not
be prevented by vaccinations; despite of building individual organism
in a living, eliciting overall immunity will be ideal.
the science has advanced in research with various modern technologies.
Homoeopaths can utilize the immunological and haematological studies
to support the clinical efficacy in prevention and treatment.
