The last few months in lockdown all over the world has given us the chance to do our bit for humanity in general. We have been involved with different orgainzations and have been teaching at webinars for homeopathy doctors, students and laypersons.
When do you call an epidemic an epidemic? What is the history of homeopathic treatment in epidemics? Does homeopathy work in epidemics?
We have been using (the freely available and free) communication technology for over 10 years to conduct online consultations with our homeopathy office in Mumbai, India as well as with our clients in almost all the continents of the world. Taking a page from this “world-wide” experience of over a decade, we modified our operations to Phone and Skype/WhatsApp Video online consultations with our regular as well as the new clients in the Bay Area in particular and the US in general.
History has witnessed the role and scope of homeopathy in epidemics and in viral diseases in particular, where conventional medicine has a limited role to play. While many homeopathic remedies are indicated for the treatment of the symptoms of COVID-19, it would be foolish to rely on Facebook and WhatsApp forwards to indiscriminately take some homeopathic remedy without supervision. It is also extremely irresponsible of practitioners to make blanket statements about their experience and cure of this disease with homeopathy, unless they have treated a large number of cases.
