Creating Waves of Awareness
Many Homoeopathic pharmacists for their selfish tendency advertised as Influenzinum 200 as Preventive medicine for Swine Flu Epidemic.
Most worst thing that through sms they are making marketing about Influenzinum as Preventive for Swine Flu.
In Homoeopathy we give preventive medicine only on the basis of ‘Genus Epidemicus’. How these Pharmacist has reached ‘Influenzinum as Preventive medicine’ ?
As per Materia Medica not any Clinical Picture of Swine Flu matches with Influenzinum.
It is dangerous to give Nosode unless or until it is indicated.
We do not have good record of Healthy Proving of ‘Influenzinum’. Without an detail & systematic Healthy proving How it is considered as Homoeopathic Medicine.
Influenzinum can be good remedy only after Flu.
Even as a Nosode does it covers H1N1 virus strains ?
Then only on the name as Influenza Shall we give it ?
So its better we should use commonly used medicines like Gelsemium, Bryonia, Arsenic Album, Eupatorium as Preventive medicine as per locality & common clinical picture of viral illness.
Most serious things that one of the Homoeopathic Pharmacy in Andheri, Mumbai who sold 20,000 Dilution bottles of ‘Influenzinum’.
See,how leading Homoeopathic Laboratory for their selfishness they are marketing & materializing Homoeopathy which is strongly against Homoeopathic Laws as I believe.
Many big named Homeopaths are making advertising and marketing that Influenzinum or Oscilococcinum as preventive for Swine Flu.
By seeing this situation it is all going against Homoeopathic Laws & Organon.
Where is our so called CCH & CCRH ?
They must control on such things.
Its very good to promote Homoeopathy amongst General public. But it must be within our Homoeopathic Laws & Principles.
WE all must understand that Homoeopathy is based on Individualisation concept. In case of Epidemic diseases we must follow ‘Genus Epidemicus concept’.
Then why should we prescribe Influenzinum ?
Please think about it. Its my own opinion.
There is an very good article published. You can refer the article written by Melanie Grimes as “Important for Swine Flu Epidemic: Homeopathy Successfully Treated Flu Epidemic of 1918”
Its brief detail as follows
" Homeopathy was successful in treating the flu epidemic of 1918 and can provide answers to questions about the 2009 Swine Flu. Homeopathy can provide quick and inexpensive relief for symptoms of the flu.
While the mortality rate of people treated with traditional medicine and drugs was 30 percent, those treated by homeopathic physicians had mortality rate of 1.05 percent.
Of the fifteen hundred cases reported at the Homeopathic Medical Society of the District of Columbia there were only fifteen deaths. Recoveries in the National Homeopathic Hospital were 100%. In Ohio, of 1,000 cases of influenza, Dr. T. A. McCann, MD, Dayton, Ohio reported NO DEATHS.
What homeopathic remedies were used to successfully treat the Spanish flu in 1918?
Gelsemium and Bryonia
According the Dr. Frank Wieland, MD, in Chicago, "(With) 8,000 workers we had only one death. Gelsemium was practically the only remedy used. We used no aspirin and no vaccines."
Homeopathy was 98% successful in treating the Spanish flu epidemic in 1918?
Ohio reported that 24,000 cases of flu treated allopathically had a mortality rate of 28.2% while 26,000 cases of flu treated homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05% . In Connecticut, 6,602 cases were reported, with 55 deaths, less than 1%. Dr. Roberts, a physician on a troop ship during WWI, had 81 cases of flu on the way over to Europe. He reported, "All recovered and were landed. Every man received homeopathic treatment.
How do they know that a virus caused the flu epidemic of 1918, when the first virus was not isolated until 1933?
They don`t. In fact, many believe that the epidemic was actually a vaccine reaction.
When Army vaccinations became compulsory in 1911, the death rate from typhoid vaccination rose to the highest point in the history of the US Army. US Secretary of War Henry L Stimson reported that seven men dropped dead after being vaccinated. He also reported 63 deaths and 28,585 cases of hepatitis as a direct result of yellow fever vaccination during only six months of WW1. According to a report in the Irish Examiner, "The report of the Surgeon-General of the US Army shows that during 1917 there were admitted into the army hospitals 19,608 men suffering from anti-typhoid inoculation and vaccinia. When army doctors tried to suppress the symptoms of typhoid with a stronger vaccine, it caused a worse form of typhoid paratyphoid. But when they concocted an even stronger vaccine to suppress that one, they created an even worse disease Spanish flu."
Did the flu strain that caused the 1918 flu ever return?
The 1918 `Spanish Flu` was first reported in an American military, Camp Funston, Fort Riley, in troops preparing for WW1 and receiving 25 vaccinations. According to the CDC, the same flu strain appeared only one other time: in 1976. This was again at a US army base, Fort Dix, and again, was seen in recently vaccinated troops, and only in them. The virus has not appeared anywhere else.
Is homeopathy successful in treating the modern flu?
What can I do to prevent the flu?
Good food, clean living, rest and exercise are the basic ingredients.
There are certain nutrients that have been shown to help enhance the immune system, such as echinacea, vitamins C, E and beta carotene, zinc, and elderberries."
