Homeopathy And Coronavirus Update
Here is the latest homeopathic information I received on the COVID-19 virus on how homeopathy can help. This information is coming from Dr. Lisa Samet, who is an excellent homeopath in Montreal, and works in the same office as Dr. Andre Saine, one of the foremost homeopaths in the world. Both have been watching and observing the development of the COVID-19 virus in terms of how other homeopaths in the world have been treating it successfully.

“There are many preventative measures we can take, and if you do catch the virus, homeopathic treatment should be very helpful. Please refer back to my February Newsletter if you missed it, which speaks of homeopathy’s extraordinary success in preventing people from developing epidemic diseases and decreasing mortality among those who fall sick during an epidemic.
Many engaged with homeopathy through the years have said, the next epidemic will be homeopathy’s time to shine. As an example, during the Spanish flu in the early 1900’s, conventional medical practitioners lost 30% of pregnant women (the most susceptible population) who fell sick with the flu, compared with the homeopaths who lost only 0.7%. That’s an extraordinary difference, factually documented from hospital records and in published articles. True, the medical system has improved much in the last 100 years, so now we potentially have the best of all worlds.
This term is defined as the cluster of symptoms, peculiar to a specific disease, that the majority of people having the disease exhibit - This indicates which homeopathic remedy is needed. If, for example, twenty people with a virus are all cured by Bryonia (because they all exhibit the characteristic symptoms of Bryonia – worse any motion, better pressure, hands hold the chest while coughing, great thirst for cold or warm/hot drinks, etc.) this remedy becomes the genius epidemicus of the disease and can be used preventatively by those who have not yet contracted the disease. There are many reports in the homeopathic literature of members of a household taking the remedy that cured a sick family member of the Spanish flu – and they themselves never contracted it, though living in the same household as the very contagious sick person.
Now that specific symptoms of COVID-19 have been better understood, and homeopaths around the world have had a chance to treat patients testing positive for COVID-19, the genius epidemicus has been tentatively identified as the remedy Bryonia. Additionally, Camphora was useful in a large percentage of homeopathically treated cases in Iran. As more cases are treated in the next few weeks by homeopaths, the genius epidemicus will likely be further refined.
It is important to mention that the genius epidemicus may change from one location to another depending on climate and altitude and may even change over the course of an epidemic.
Signs and symptoms of having contracted the Coronavirus are initially a sore throat, cough and fever. The majority of cases have presented with all of these symptoms. It is impossible to know for sure that you have it, though, without getting tested.
How to take the remedy preventatively?
The best guidance right now (and I guarantee you this will evolve and change over the next weeks, if not days) is to take Bryonia for prevention, and if you have it to alternate with Camphora. If just using Bryonia take a pellet weekly, ideally in a 200c potency. If taking both, you could alternate: Bryonia this Monday, Camphora the next Monday, and repeat again, alternating remedies each week until the risk of contracting the Coronavirus is gone. This is obviously in conjunction with all the other great advice you have read about concerning hygiene: washing your hands frequently, drinking hot liquids (the virus appears to be susceptible to high heat), etc., which I won’t repeat in in detail here.
As with building immunity to any illness, the 4 pillars of good health are essential: restful sleep and enough of it, excellent nutrition – lots and lots of veggies and fruit, clean protein, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and remaining well-hydrated - exercise (especially outdoors), and stress management. Yes, fear and anxiety can wear us down and deplete our immune systems, leaving us more at risk. How ironic that worrying about this disease will actually make us more susceptible to getting it or having a more severe case! Worry helps nothing (as we all know).
Additionally, certain supplements are crucial. Consider Vitamin D and C (adults 2000+iu per day and kids 500-1000iu per day, of each), Zinc – oral spray or lozenges might be best as the virus’ route of entry is nose and mouth, and NAC (n-acetylcysteine), which helps replenish the most powerful antioxidant in your body, glutathione. This amino acid supports the health of the respiratory tract – a big feature to prevent the multiplication of the Coronavirus. You might also want to have on hand oil of Oregano for treatment of any sore throat, an initial feature of COVID 19, which can also be used as a mouthwash and gargle.
It’s always a good idea to have a kit of remedies on hand for treatment should you contract the virus. These might include: Phosphorus, Arsenicum album, Conium, Pulsatilla, Carbo vegetabilis, Cuprum metallicum, Veratrum album, Antimonium tartaricum, Lycopodium, Lachesis, Camphora, Bryonia, Kali carb and Sulphur.
The fact is, most of us will come in contact with the virus and possibly 50% of us will never know it as we will have no obvious symptoms. Thirty percent will have a mild to moderate case. Up to twenty percent will have a more serious case, mostly people in ill-health over 65. In all cases, homeopathy is sure to help. Children appear to not be very susceptible to develop COVID-19, and the virus does not cross the placenta, leaving the fetus unharmed.”
Thank you Dr. Samet. Here are two other articles about epidemics and homeopathy and some information from homeopaths in India and Iran who have treated people successfully for this C virus with Camphora:

You can buy homeopathic remedies at compounding pharmacies in your area or online. If you can’t order online (out of stock) and live near a compounding pharmacy, call them and ask them to order it asap.
I am sure many of you are already using various products to build your immunity right now. Another person who lives in California suggested using oregano oil outside both nostrils to prevent the virus from spreading.
If you have any problems obtaining the remedies, please let me know. Homeopathic pharmacies are being inundated at this time. Only 5% of the USA population uses homeopathy for their main therapeutics, so as the word gets and out, more and more people will be trying it for this virus. (The World Health Organization says homeopathy is the second most used therapeutics in the world.)
As you pass on information just let people decide for themselves if homeopathy is something they want to try, but if you have used it with any success in your life I think this information will help you. I’ve used homeopathy for 30 years and it never fails to amaze me how effective it is for so many crucial health situations.
