Homeopathy can both prevent and cure swine flu, sans any side effects, say doctors who practise this alternative medicine system in India where over 700 people have been diagnosed with the disease. Amid panic over the spread of influenza A (H1N1) virus, homeopaths are now drafting a proposal for the health ministry to offer their services in tackling the crisis.

"Based on the symptoms, homeopathy can offer an effective cure to swine flu. Moreover, it does not have any side effects," Harcharanjeet Kaur, a homeopath at Baksons homeopathy clinic, told IANS.

Well-known Delhi-based homeopath Mukesh Batra cited the instance of the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 in which more than 50 million people were killed worldwide. He said the mortality rate of people given allopathic treatment was 28.2 percent, while those given homeopathic treatment was 1.05 percent at that time.

"Gelsemium and Bryonia were the two homeopathic remedies that proved to be effective against the H1N1 strain back then. These could be of great use even today," Batra said.

Explaining the way homeopathy works, Jaipur-based homeopath Manish Bhatia said this form of medicine works on the basis of symptoms and not the disease.

"In homeopathy, there is a concept called Genus epidemicus. This means if there is an epidemic and you take the symptoms of say 15 ailing people of an area, you will notice a common trend. Based on that you give medication - for the symptoms. This same medication then, if given to people of that area, can act as a preventive medicine," Bhatia said phone.

Besides symptoms like running nose, fever, sneezing and dullness that are the same for common flu and swine flu patients, those suffering from the latter may also have gastric problems like nausea and vomiting, Bhatia said.

"Based on the symptoms, there may be different curative medications for different cases of swine flu. One or two of these medications will be used more frequently than the others and this can then be given to others as preventive medication," Bhatia said.

So why WHO (the World Health Organisation) or the health ministry has not taken homeopathy's help in tackling the H1N1 outbreak?

"WHO relies on statistical data before advising governments on tackling a disease. And there is no study on the effectiveness of homeopathy to prevent or cure swine flu.

Therefore it cannot recommend homeopathy," Bhatia said.

"Having said that, a group of homeopathy doctors are drafting a proposal to the

government to offer their services to help in dealing with swine flu cases," Bhatia said.

"In Brazil, the homeopathic doctors' community has collected data on the symptoms of swine flu and homeopathic treatments for symptoms and are spreading the word on its effectiveness through internet," he added.

Anwar Amir, secretary general of the homeopathy post graduate association in

Maharashtra, said he has written to the union health ministry and the state government's health department offering their services to deal with the swine flu crisis.

More than 616 people have been detected with H1N1 virus so far in India, of which 487 have been discharged. The disease has claimed one life in India.

People however should not panic. The chances of dying of swine flu are just as low as dying of common flu, homeopathic doctors said unanimously.

Giving an example of the effectiveness of homeopathy in an epidemic in India, Batra said when Japanese encephalitis hit Andhra Pradesh 10 years ago, the government distributed one million doses of Belladonna, a homeopathic drug, to children.

"No child was affected by Japanese encephalitis after that. Therefore, homeopathy can provide an effective and inexpensive preventive measure and cure for swine flu too," Batra said.

Great article...most prescription drugs are made from natural herbs anyway. Companies add chemicals to them to make a brand. I don't know why the herb alone wouldn't work.

hahaha too funny. I just hope whoever prepares the solution doesn't allow a particle of swineflu into the mixture before the dilution process.. it could create a new strain of swine flu 100x more powerful!

homeopathy cant really cure swine flu, but i've been given this potion by a leprechaun. apparently it's the sweat and tears of a whee fairy and not only does it cure swine flu it also 100% prevents you from being transformed into one by a witch or a warlock.

The answer to why homeopathy is not taken seriously in the western medical world is in the last paragraph. It doesn't make the pharmaceutical companies huge $$ if you go to Wild Oats to cure yourself.

This is also the reason why Vitamin B-17 cannot be purchased in the USA, since it cures cancer. It is labeled 'laetrile' and administered by an MD so the pharm co's can make bank.

Don't kid yourself, homeopathy is a multi-billion dollar industry.

I read a funny story once about this scientist driven crazy by his wife's homeopathy use. So he bought some of the plain white homeopathy starch balls. He told her he wanted to give her the remedies for a while as part of an experiment so he could document how well it worked. She was unaware he had his own blank balls and liquids. So as she does several times a week as normal.. she requested the expensive remedies, he went to her stash acted to take the real ones but trashed them and made the switch to the blanks. Over the course of several weeks he kept documenting. At the end she was delighted at the 80% cure rate and claimed victory that her pills work over his science. He then informed her they were placebos

Does anyone have the link to the Vitamin D article here on ATS? I know that it was not 'just' vitamin D, but something else like cD or something, cant remember but am getting ready to buy for all my family.

I also know that taking C in large doses also helps, but how much?

I think the research here said something like 5,000iu of D and I am guessing somewhere around 1,500 of vitaminC?

But what about little children and infants? How much for them?
Help?
