Creating Waves of Awareness


Sepsis is a disease on which many articles have been written in the past, but due to its importance, its awareness is still relevant especially in terms of homeopathy.

It would be worth mentioning here that thousands of patient die around the world because of sepsis, even in USA and Europe where hospital care is at an optimum at least compared to the developing world.

Sepsis, also called “SIRS” or systemic inflammatory response syndrome, is an illness in which bacterial illness takes over the blood stream. In simple words it is blood poisoning.

Causes: As mentioned Sepsis is caused by a bacterial infection that can begin any where in the body.

The glands that may be infected are:
  • Skin - Cellulitis.
  • Lining of the brain- Meningitis.
  • Lungs – Bacterial Pneumonia.
  • Kidney- Urinary Tract Infection.
  • Liver – Inflammation
  • Gall Bladder- Infection,
  • Bowel- Peritonitis.

One important aspect not to be overlooked is in the hospitalized patient where Sepsis can affect them adversely.

Common sites of infection are surgical wounds, surgical drains, intravenous lines, places where the skin breakdowns, resulting in the dreaded bedsores.

Symptoms: Some of the important symptoms are as follows:
  • Shock due to drop in blood pressure
  • Malfunctioning of different organs of the body, such as kidney, liver, lungs, and CNS or central nervous system
  • Mental confusion, delirium
  • Low urine output
  • Skin rash
  • Hypertension
  • Fever

Homeopathy has a very important role to play in overcoming the symptoms by prescribing according to “law of similars”. Some of the important medicines in treating SEPSIS are as follows:

Apis, Ars, Baptisia, Bell, Bryonia, Carb Veg, Crotolus Horridus, Lachesis, Lycopodium, Pyrogenum, and Echinacea.

I may add that for bedsores calendula ointment has been proven to be very effective in addition to the medicines prescribed according to the prevailing condition.

I pray that this small write up will at least be a reminder to those in health care industry who would like to explore about Homeopathy as a mode of treatment for sepsis.

Thank you Dr Sajjad, The idea of mentioning the book was the application of Homeopathic intervention in the ER atmosphere. But the experiences at Dhawale institute are real life experiences. It would be worthwhile for doctors who are with hospitals to present these ER cases to the community. In India there are quite a few homeopathic hospitals notably in Kolkata and other cities.

In Pakistan i find the name of a few Homeopathic hospital, if i am not mistaken, Dr Masood Qureshis Hospital in Lahore, and The central homeopathic College in Karachi. I wonder why their experiences are not brought to the fore.

The book is good and comprehensive but needs clinical verification.

You are right in saying that our remedies are not fully utilized. It is my earnest wish that homeopathy can serve well in ER (emergency room) Dr J B Castro's book "Homeopathic medicines in emergencies" gives a lot of information on the subject

Furthermore, the experiences gained at Dhawale Institute in use of homeopathic medicines at ER are something worth learning about and emulating in hospitals. Even if it is on experimental and research based situation.  

Comment by Dr Muhammed Rafeeque on August 15, 2011 at 7:25am
I often feel that homeopathic medicines are not fully utilized in medical practice, because such cases usually go to modern medical hospitals. Along with the basic life supports, there should be access for homeopathy. Only a few institutions provide this. Team work is needed for cooperation between hospitals and homeopaths. Even for purely surgical cases, there are medicines, but rarely do we get chances to treat these patients.
