Individualistic study and approach

 
Dear Readers,
       WHO has announced the Swine flu as pandemic and the incidents are still reported in India. Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy has announced Ars Alb 30 as preventive and other flu like symptoms. The scientific Advisory committee recommended one dose for three consecutive days. Various research units under the CCRH has been geared up to distribute the medicines in schools and colleges.

    
            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.
The Department of AYUSH, Government of Andhra Pradesh successfully implemented the BCT programme against Japanese Encephalitis in Andhra Pradesh in 1999. It consists of administrating Belladonna, Calcarea Carb and Tuberculinum in series to all children in the state, according to a time table much like the Pulse Polio Programme. When the Dengue fever was reported, Eupatorium Perfoliatum, the Genus Epidemicus saved many lives.
           Nowadays, 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.
           Today 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.
