Using Homoeopathy as an adjuvant, DMO, kin finally discharged, ready to volunteer for Covid-19 duty.

The three were even given homeopathic consultations and they said this should be given to patients in both civil and private hospitals. He said, “I was given homeopathic medicine at the civil hospital and I feel it helped us all in our speedy recovery. Homeopathy can be made an integral part of the treatment process as it can prevent symptoms and help faster recovery. Even anxiety part was taken care to some extent. Homeopathy is effective and no doubt it has helped us recover better.”

Ludhiana: 
57-year-old district mandi officer (DMO), her 35-year-old daughter, who is posted as block development panchayat officer (BDPO) at Doraha, and her 35-year-old son-in-law serving in food department, who were discharged from the civil hospital after recovery from Covid 19, feel that there was unnecessary panic associated with the quarantine of positive patients. The three had a word with the chief minister on May 2, which acted as a morale booster. 
The DMO said, “I thank Punjab government for taking proactive steps in dealing with Covid-19 and we are now ready to volunteer with the administration to be put on any duty regarding any arrangements for Covid patients.” 
Jasbir Kaur (DMO) told TOI, “Undue panic is associated with Covid-19 in terms of isolation and contact tracing. I feel this can be controlled if home quarantine is allowed. The central government’s discharge policy should be immediately implemented as it gives a fixed timeline for patient to go home. When I was in another hospital, I was panicky as I was all alone and that had affected me mentally. With home quarantine, people will get relaxed and will not be affected psychologically as one has to wait for days for two tests to come negative with delays in reports.”
Talking about the civil hospital, she added, “I had a much better experience at the civil hospital than at the private one. At the civil hospital, at least one can see other patients and does not feel panicky. Proper distance and hygiene are maintained and it is not a bad option for asymptomatic patients.” Her daughter Navdeep Kaur said, “I got myself admitted at the civil hospital and later called my mother over here. I really want to thank district administration for professional and up to the mark arrangements for Covid-19 patients at the civil hospital, including all doctors and staff who were very cooperative and supportive throughout.” While praising about the amenities, she said, “From television to AC arrangements, Covid-19 ward is well equipped.

The DMO’s son-in-law Prabhjot Singh said, “Fitness is the key and we should not fear coronavirus. We took precautions and none of our contacts have tested positive.Contact tracing is being done in a fearful and haphazard way. In fact, our relatives in other districts were also called up and questioned despite we telling them that they were not in contact with us. People should donate in hospitals rather than donating money to religious institutions in providing healthy diet to the poor patients.” 

The three were even given homeopathic consultations and they said this should be given to patients in both civil and private hospitals.
He said, “I was given homeopathic medicine at the civil hospital and I feel it helped us all in our speedy recovery. Homeopathy can be made an integral part of the treatment process as it can prevent symptoms and help faster recovery. Even anxiety part was taken care to some extent. Homeopathy is effective and no doubt it has helped us recover better.

Senior medical officer Dr Geeta Kataria said, “The decision to discharge has been taken after their latest samples also tested negative. However, it took nearly 25 to 18 days to receive two consecutive negative results. They all will be now under home quarantine till May 26.” The 57- year-old had tested positive on April 17 after she was in contact with ACP Anil Kohli, who later succumbed to the disease. Later, her daughter and son-in-law had tested positive.

Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray requested Homeopathy and other AYUSH doctors to join the fight against COVID-19



Mr. Thackeray appealed to doctors in private practice to step up and aid the government’s efforts: “I am requesting AYUSH, homoeopathy and all other doctors to join us. We have a medical task force to support us now." he said.

He also said that many frontline workers in the state - healthcare professionals, police - have been working non-stop and are now testing positive for the infection. “They deserve some relief as well. So I have requested the Centre to extend their support to reduce the pressure on the state resources, in phases, by providing additional manpower. This does not mean that we want the army here. This is just to ensure the police forces have some respite."

Mismanagement at hospitals will not be tolerated, he said while referring to video showing patients at Mumbai hospital being treated next to dead bodies.

748 new Covid-19 cases have been reported in Mumbai on Friday, taking the total number of cases in the city to to 11,967, said Municipal Corporation Greater Mumbai.

Homoeopathy Can Be Used As Adjuvant To COVID-19 Treatment: Dr Anil Khurana



Speaking to BOOM's Govindraj Ethiraj, Dr Anil Khurana said that homoeopathic medicines can complement treatments used to fight COVID-19.

On May 1, 2020, the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation gave permission to homoeopathic practitioners to conduct research at COVID-19 quarantine centres and combat the virus. 

The Ayush Ministry declared Arsenicum Album-30 as a "preventive' against COVID-19. Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto has also batted for the homoeopathic medicines to combat COVID-19. He, on the basis of research done by Dr Rajan Sankaran, has backed Camphor 1M as a potential medicine for COVID-19. 

Homoeopathy has been dismissed by medical professionals as pseudoscience and BOOM has fact-checked the effectiveness of homoeopathic medicines before. The Indian government is keeping its options open to combat the novel coronavirus. 

To understand how homoeopathy works and the research homoeopathy practitioners are conducting, BOOM's Govindraj Ethiraj spoke to Dr Anil Khurana, Director General Incharge of the Central Council For Research In Homoeopathy. Dr Khurana said that Arsenicum Album-30 can be used as an adjuvant in COVID-19 treatment but not as a standalone medicine right now. The full transcript of the interview can be found below. 

Can homoeopathy combat COVID-19? Govindraj Ethiraj? In conversation with Dr Anil Khurana, Director General, Central Council for Research in Homeopathy. 

In 1796, a German physician, called Samuel Hahnemann invented a discipline called homoeopathy. It has been around a long time but questions around its efficacy continue. Even today in the battle against coronavirus there are questions about its efficacy not just in India but in many parts of the world. The Government of India has now prescribed a set of medicines to be consumed as prophylactics. Now, these medicines are to be taken every day, for three days on an empty stomach and is believed to help fight or prevent a coronavirus infection. Now, how does homoeopathy work when it comes to a disease like COVID-19 and how effective could it be. To discuss this, I am joined by Dr Anil Khurana, Deputy Director-General, Central Council for Research in Homeopathy. 

Govindraj Ethiraj: Dr Khurana, tell us, in a few lines, what does homoeopathy mean and secondly, in the context of fighting a disease or infection like coronavirus. 

Dr Anil Khurana: The basic principle of homoeopathy is to increase the self-healing powers of the body and in that manner, these medicines work in a holistic way. And the main concept behind this is that—the law of similarity; in homoeopathic philosophy, we have validated it on an experimental level in the laboratory model also—that if you treat a person on a similarity basis, means a person is suffering from some symptoms, and there is a medicine that is able to produce those symptoms, then that will mitigate that person with those symptoms. That is what the basic hypothesis is about homoeopathy. We have done in vitro models creating these kinds of experiments where we are, like, I can give you a small example—we exposed some cell lines to high heat stress and the medicine, which produces similar kind of a pathological format, where those medicines produce similar kind of pathological changes in those cell lines because of that heat, so we subjected those cell lines with the same medicine. And we could see that those cell lines survived when they were pre-treated with these homoeopathic medicines. So, there is a prophylactic effect of these medicines in the in vitro model. This also refutes that homoeopathy has a placebo effect, we have appropriate controls which we have kept at every place. When we talk of the human body {in vivo} it is a little more sensitive area where there are a lot of interactions between cellular mechanisms are there, there are molecular mechanisms, there are genetic mechanisms, there are immunological factors everywhere. So, when we talk of these, that is why in homoeopathic medicine they actually enhance the basic innate immunity. We do not expect homoeopathy to create a kind of an acquired immunity as vaccines do. Vaccines create a specific antibody against a particular virus. That is why they are working against the virus. Homoeopathic medicine because they are not antigenic, herbal medicine will not produce an antibody against a virus, but it will enhance the cellular immunity at the basic level. So, the medicine Arsenicum Album that has been given as a prophylactic for corona, we have seen in experimental models and previously reported in many places, that it has increased the cellular immunity level. 

Govindraj Ethiraj: Do we know specifically that the enhanced cellular capability is sufficient to fight a virus-like COVID-19? 

Dr Anil Khurana: See, the first line of defence, in corona, the first line is macrophages—these are the first line of defence in the cellular immunity. So, they or the T-cells or the b-lymphocytes, some of the cells, say engulf the virus and kill them. So, if we increase the cellular immunity means, if you can increase the level of these cells...As we have seen in HIV disease also, we did a lot of work on HIV over the last 23 years, we have seen that the CD4 count has increased because of the homeopathic medicine. We have such examples with us, people who have survived more than 15, even 16 years with homoeopathic medicine, although the number is very less, even then, with homoeopathic medicine, they could maintain a good CD4 level, so that they could fight out the HIV infection. Similar way mechanism we are expecting in corona, that if we increase the cellular immunity, the body will be less susceptible to catch an infection.

Govindraj Ethiraj: So you are saying that, let us say, therefore the progression of the disease as we know it, of course, the symptoms are expanding, early symptoms about progressing through the respiratory tract, attacking the lungs, and then disabling the lungs. That is something that these medicines are not specifically designed to counter... 

Dr Anil Khurana: Yes, our medicines also have some kind of organ affinity. There are many medicines who have a special affinity for a particular organ, so like this Arsenicum which you are talking about has a special affinity for the respiratory system. It is a potential drug in homoeopathy for asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, acute bronchitis, chronic bronchitis; for influenza-like illness, we have been giving it as a prophylactic since many seasons in some of the areas. We have collected data also—that the incidences of new illness are coming down among the people who have got this medicine over a period of years, at the change of season. So, our homoeopathic medicine will be having a specific kind...it can also generate specific immunity because of its propensity to act on a particular organ. 

Govindraj Ethiraj: You mentioned Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD, now that obviously concerns the lung. You have data about how it has worked in the case of COPD, its efficacy on COPD patients 

Dr Anil Khurana: Basically see, the people who suffer from COPD, they are mostly chronic smokers, and they are working in some kind of a polluted/pollutant area—so these are the people who have COPD. They develop some kind of tissue changes in the body. They accumulate toxins in the body also and one of the aspects of homoeopathy is that these homoeopathic medicines when they enhance the self-healing powers, the body itself goes into the detoxification stage. They throw out the toxins, from the body. In West Bengal, we did an experiment on arsenic toxicity, the arsenic level is very high in certain pockets of the country. West Bengal is one of those areas—the level of arsenic was very high. So, when we gave this potentised arsenic to them, the level of arsenic in the body had gone down. So, they were less susceptible to those kinds of changes into the body because of the toxicities. So, these toxins that come up maybe because of infection, as we are seeing in corona what happens—the main pathology is coming because of the cytokine storm. This cytokine storm is damaging the lungs. So, our medicines will detoxify, they will remove those toxins from the body so that self-healing comes up faster. 

Govindraj Ethiraj: Are there preconditions for this? I mean for some patients it may work, for some, it may not. This, of course, extends to general immunity, as we know 85% of the patients may be nothing happens in any case, there will be, let us say, mild fever or flu symptoms.

Dr Anil Khurana: That is why we have started our trials, in early stage we were not having access to these corona patients because of all being treated at COVID care treatment centres, identified by the Government of India. Because of the notification issued by the Ministry of Ayush, we have approached the higher authorities at the Ministry of Health and at the state level. Now, at some places we have been given access to those patients for clinical trials using homoeopathy as an adjuvant, we are not going standalone, right now. So, the population, which is hospitalized, means those who have already gone into a stage of the symptomatic stage, they need hospital care, we are adding homoeopathic medicine to them. So, we will be seeing whether by adding homoeopathy the recovery comes faster, or there is less mortality, low complications—that is what we are expecting.

Govindraj Ethiraj: How many patients do you have under trial right now?

Dr Anil Khurana: We have just started yesterday only and at two hospitals, as the number grows, we will be getting more access to those patients. Because we got the approvals only three days ago, from the ethical committee, from the hospital authorities—all those procedures that are required for a clinical trial, even CTRI registration (Clinical Trials Registry- India), all those mandatory things we have completed now, now we are going to register patients today or tomorrow onwards.

Govindraj Ethiraj: These are patients who volunteer for this or do they do not have a choice 

Dr Anil Khurana: Without written informed consent we do not enrol any patient; the patient has to be willing. 

Govindraj Ethiraj: I am going to come to the composition of these medicines in a moment. But we have also been hearing about how some of these European countries, and I started out by saying that this was obviously introduced by Germany many centuries ago, Spain is thinking of banning homoeopathy, other European countries are not looking at this very seriously right now, so why is there a disconnect? 

Dr Anil Khurana: See, in the Western countries there has been little bit opposition about regarding homoeopathy—the main reason being they could not find any detectable particle in the homoeopathic medicine. That is the main reason. It is highly ultra-diluted, that is the main controversy behind homoeopathic medicine. Otherwise, if you go for biological effects and activities in animal models, cell lines, we have sufficient evidence that homoeopathic medicine works, and it is not a placebo effect. That is for certain. But the only question is how does it work? And what is there in the medicine which is working. We have done one experiment with IIT Mumbai, they have come out with evidence that even in higher potencies, the original particles are retained because of the potentisation process. This has been published internationally also. And we are now further validating—what kind of these particles are, how they behave into the solution, and when they are disassociated from the original molecules, whether it is an ionic response—all those basic parts, homoeopathic medicines, we are working with IIT Mumbai. They did with metals—they cannot be dissolved, evaporated—so they have done this experiment with metals, in potentized form in 200 dilutions. 200 dilution is 100 raised to power minus 200. It is that much high dilution. And Avogadro limit is only 10 raised to power minus 23. So, we are way beyond the Avogadro limit. Still, some particles are still there. They have hypothesized that this is some kind of a vowels/bubbles theory and they are still working on how to explain this thing in a scientific platform. These are the controversies in the Western side that, European countries and other parts, American continent they are little sceptical about this but many researchers in the Western side, even some Nobel Laureates have come in front to explain these parts of homoeopathy. You might have been knowing about Dr Luc Montagnier who was the Nobel laureate for HIV virus. He also started doing something on this homoeopathic model, he did not specify exactly homoeopathy, but the experiment was on homoeopathy model, where he has diluted the DNA of a bacteria to such a level but still DNA was acting. 

Govindraj Ethiraj: Arsenicum Album 30...We know allopathic drugs and the conditions they are manufactured in, FDI approval, there are good manufacturing practices and so on. Tell us about what environment are these drugs manufactured, where do the inputs come from, what is the quality control that is maintained and by whom 

Dr Anil Khurana: See the manufacturing of homoeopathy [medicines] is very well regulated in India and India, and India is now becoming the exporter of homoeopathic medicines to other countries and it is because of that the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) is strongly enforced, it is under Drugs and Cosmetic Act, so every manufacturing unit has to get the GMP certification from the Government of India, only then can they manufacture homoeopathic medicines. There are has been some concern about the raw material—especially the plants, actually in homoeopathy 70 per cent of the plants are of European origin. Because of the bio-diversity act that comes in between, there were some difficulties in procuring these raw materials from the Western side. But the Government of India, Commerce Ministry has eased out some relaxation to import those raw materials from there and that is why they are able to get proper raw material in India. And this Arsenicum Album is simply a chemical, Arsenic Tri Oxide and is quite commonly available in the country, not an issue. We have Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India, which has more than one thousand one hundred and eleven (1111) monographs of drugs. There are standards laid down in the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India. Two biggest pharmacopoeias in the world are—HP US (United States), which is a little bigger than us, they have 1300 some medicines. In India, we have 1111 medicines. And in totality, if we combine these two pharmacopoeias, then we have monographs of more than 1600 medicines. So, there are no questions on the quality of homoeopathic medicines, technology is highly advanced right now. There is a pharmacopoeia commission of Indian medicine in homoeopathy, there is Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia Committee, I am the member secretary of that committee. There are drug testing labs available at the different state level, central level; there is a homoeopathic pharmacopoeia laboratory available. Another aspect that has emerged lately in the last 3-4 years is pharmacovigilance. If there is a spurious drug coming into the market, and there is some kind of reaction among the patients, they are being reported at appropriate levels. So, drug testing labs are picking those samples from the market, why they are causing some reaction. So, all these steps are being taken to regulate the quality of homoeopathic medicine.

Govindraj Ethiraj: You must have seen this—industrialist Rajiv Bajaj of Bajaj Auto made a public appeal for the use of homoeopathy. He also said that not to use Arsenicum Album 30, but to use Camphor 1M because he felt that was more effective. How do you weigh in on this? 

Dr Anil Khurana: Actually, Arsenicum Album 30, was recommended by our scientific advisory board or central council for research in homoeopathy—there is a group of experts available with us and when Ministry asked us, per chance our meeting was going on at that point of time. So, we analyzed the whole information that was available on the net, in one of the Lancet Journal, which was published, symptomatology, which was reported from Wuhan city. That symptomatology was available with us from that Lancet Journal, and that formed the basis for identifying a medicine. In homoeopathy, there is a concept called Genus Epidemicus, how we declare this medicine as a prophylactic, which will enhance the immunity. That is method is when we analyze the symptomatology in the community, who are getting affected. When this call was made to ask/tell what the prophylactic medicine from the homoeopathic side was, at that time India was not getting many cases, there were a few cases only. But we had a lot of data available from the Wuhan city. And we have connections with different homoeopathy associations— Liga Medicorum Homoeopathica Internationalis, which is international homoeopathic medical league, which has a branch in Hong Kong also, there are homoeopathic doctors associated with that. So, we also asked them for their inputs—because they have also seen as per homoeopathy way symptoms. So, we collected all these symptoms and based on that, the medicine which covers the totality of these symptoms, the maximum symptoms, that is the genus epidemics... 

Govindraj Ethiraj: This Camphor 1M, you are saying is not as exhaustive as Arscenium? 

Dr Anil Khurana: The Camphor that Dr Sankaran advised to Rajiv Bajaj, Dr Sankaran is working in Prana Hospital run by Rajiv Bajaj. He actually treated few cases in Iran, he himself did not treat, he suggested medicine to some doctor in Iran. And those were the cases who were actually suffering and were hospitalized, they were also taking antiviral drugs at that point of time. And I have seen those case records, there is no denying that Camphor might have helped them because I cannot right now conclude with just 8-11 cases that this medicine has worked. We have to have a big sample size and there should be a control group on the other side. In a few cases Camphor works, there is a presentation of diarrhoea actually, a great amount of weakness. So, in this community, not many patients are reporting diarrhoea. Most of the patients were reporting upper respiratory tract infection. So, there was fever, dry cough and breathlessness. So, this was the presentation at an earlier stage. Now that trend is changing. Most of the people are coming with asymptomatic, with mild symptoms. So, the trend is changing. But the patients who are going into complications, they are showing all these set of symptoms—even they are going for respiratory distress. Camphor does have an affinity for gastric mucosa because it is called gastric flu. At this point of time, Camphor can be one of the drugs for treatment not for prophylactics. Small success stories have started building up, you might have heard the video of Principal Secretary of Health from Gujarat, Arsenicum was given to 1600 quarantine people, who had come into contact with the COVID positive person and they found that none of them got infected with the coronavirus. So, these small stories are building up, but now we have to collect data on a scientific platform. That is why we have started proper clinical trials, in three type of studies—first is asymptomatic positive patients, people who are in the quarantine zone, means people who have come into contact and are in the high risk, and third is the adjuvant who have already suffered and hospitalized. So, this is how we are moving. Hoping that we will come with some kind of encouraging results.

Following India, Pakistan too uses Homeopathic medicine Ars Alb 30 to prevent corona infection

ISLAMABAD: Doctors had claimed that homeopathic medicine Arsenicum Album 30 is useful in prevention and treatment of corona infection.

In a Facebook post, Dr Jaswant Patil, who is a homeopathic doctor by profession in India and having degree of MD (chest) and BHMS, claimed that he recommended Ars Alb 30 to police official for the prevention of Covid-19 and the outcome was encouraging.

After is successful test, I formed a task force ‘COVID TEAM MUMBAI’ of 11 homeopaths and they got permission to treat only 6 patients of symptomatic first stage. All of them were COVID test negative on 4th day after giving homeopathy, he claimed.

They were tested next day again and all of sex patients tested negative he said adding now they need more patients to authenticate the efficacy of homeopathy.

Dr Jaswant stated that Homeopathy cannot prove itself in Test-Tube science but has proved effective in Evidence based science.

He appealed the Indian Government to allow his team and facilitate them to treat all cases of corona with hand in hand with their allopathy colleagues to beat Corona.

The Indian Government’s Ministry of AYUSH, which promotes alternative medicine systems in the country, released a health advisory on January 29 also recommended the use of a homeopathic preparation called Arsenicum album 30C and two drops of sesame oil in each nostril each morning for prevention of Covid-19.

Earlier, The Homeopathy Department in Karela State of India has distributed Arsenicum Album 30C among almost 4.5 million people across the state as a preventive medicine.

Drug Regulatory Authority – Pakistan (DRAP) also allowed the clinical trial for the preparation of Herbal and Homeopathic medicine to the Health and OTC Pharmaceutical companies who have applied to them for permission.

When contacted, Dr. Waqar Rabbani – Homeopathic doctor by profession – said, Arsenicum Album 30C generally known as Ars Alb 30 is not the treatment of the Covid-19 but this medicine boosts the immunity level of the patient, and both the allopathic and homeopathic doctors agreed on this point that Covid-19 effected patients having high impunity level recovers fast as compare to others.

He said, homoeopathy has a long history of treating and preventing epidemics ever since its inception.

Dr Nasir Chaudhary – senior doctor and former president of Homeopathic Council Pakistan – said, it is a fact that Ars Alb 30 improves the immunity level which helps in prevention of Covid-19 infection.

81 SRPF Jawan Tested Negative for Corona after using homeoprophylaxis - IPS Officer

In an interview with IPS Mr. Sanjay Patil it was noted that 81 out of the 82 SRPF from Dhule who were posted in Malegaon have tested negative for COVID-19.


IPS Mr. Sanjay Patil, mentioned in the interview that, "With previous experience of Homoeopathy medicine and their therapeutic value in the epidemic of Swine Flu and Chikunguniya, we started Homoeopathic prophylactic in this group from March 2nd week onwards. Under the able guidance of Dr. Ulhas Pagare and Dr. Jaswant Patil this activity was conducted. All SRPF workers also did take due precautions."

SRPF from Dhule were tested negative for COVID-19 after having worked in Malegaon. 81 SRPF jawan had taken the Homoeopathic prophylactic dose as prescribed by the doctors but 1 did not take the prophylactic hence he was tested positive.

With the rising figures of COVID-19 positive people in Malegaon being an alarming situation, this news about the SRPF jawan is a shining star and a new ray of hope.

Kusumbe and Morane Village of Dhule District have been adopted by the foundation and also have been shielded with Homoeopathic medicine and other health check up camps.

Along with completing their duties towards safeguarding the area these SRPF jawans also lend their humanitarian support to the Surat returned workers, they distributed about 7500 food packets and SRPF paid in from their wages in this noble cause along with duty.

IPS Mr. Sanjay Patil, had also provided sanitizing van to aid the jawans. Dr. Jain and Dr. Sar have been distributing Homoeopathic Medicine as prophylactic in Malegaon area.

Homoeopathic medicine have also been distributed to Jalgaon and Nandurbar Police as a prophylactic treatment in this pandemic.

COVID-19: Football players'' forum provides Homeopathic Preventive medicine to police

COVID-19: Football players'' forum provides medicine to police
Kolkata, May 8 (IANS) A players'' forum involving former and current India footballers on Friday distributed 2,000 bottles of immunity boosting homeopathy medicine to police personnel of the Barrackpore commissionerate in a bid to help them combat the COVID-19 crisis from the forefront.
The 38-member strong group, which has the likes of current India full back Pritam Kotal, ex-India captain Arnab Mondal, Subrata Pal, Mehtab Hossain, Rahim Nabi among others came forward to start the noble cause and according to former Mohun Bagan midfielder Denson Devadas, the brainchild behind this initiative, they will go ahead with more such activities in Bengal in the days to come.
The group is called ''players for humanity'' and was formed last year to play small-sided football matches during off season. Later, it joined community service and charity work and had also helped in the organisation of a charity match to help late Radhakrishnan Dhanarajan''s family.
"My wife is a homeopathy doctor. So during this COVID-19 crisis, we came up with this idea of providing medicine ''Arsenicum Album'' which helps boost immunity to our frontline workers," Devadas, who plays for George Telegraph in the Calcutta Football League (CFL), told IANS.
"Even in Kerala, they are following it. I heard from my wife about it that they are running the second dose for it. The state is doing it for all. Even in Delhi...so we thought of starting from police department. We approached NIH (National Institute of Homeopathy) as medical support is needed, and they were very happy to work with us. They are the suppliers of medicine," said Devadas who is born in Kannur, Kerala but lives in Newtown, Kolkata.
All 38 footballers in the group then used their sources to approach the commissioners and get the permission.
"We started with Barrackpore police station. Six-seven of us went there and distributed 2,000 bottles. One bottle, five members can use," Devadas further said.
The likes of veteran India goalkeeper Subrata, ATk''s Pronay Halder and Prabir Das, Souvik Chakraborty, Lalkamal Bhowmick, Md Rafique and Devadas were there.
"We are planning to extend this to Kolkata, Bidhannagar and Howrah commissionerate," Devadas concluded.

Almost the whole world is suffering from pandemic known as COVID-19 by one or the other way, irrespective of economic, technologic, weapon, political advantages they have. From the ever increasing cases of the COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown, it’s understandable that many might begin to feel increasing stress. If we look at the statistics,total confirmed cases of COVID-19 worldwide are close to 20 lakhs and death cases are 1.25 lakhs as on 16th April 2020. Ever increasing death toll, lack of proven line of treatment,isolated at home, lack of social life and financial crisis lead us to develop various social, psychological and emotional trauma. There are several homoeopathic medicines which are known to increase the immunity of individual and bring down the anxiety and stress. In this article, detail about the different factors of anxiety and fear along with its general and homoeopathic management are discussed.

What are coronavirus and COVID-19?

Common cold can be caused by several viruses. Among them Rhinovirus, Coronavirus, RSV and para-influenza are the most common. The coronavirus is the cause of about 20% of colds especially in the winter and early spring.[1],[2]Coronavirus is broadly of 7 types. Most of the coronaviruses are not life threatening but current one has high mortality rate. This new strain of coronavirus is officially named as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 is named in the abbreviated from COVID-19 (COronaVIrusDisease - 2019).Other severe diseases causes by other coronaviruses include Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)[3] and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)[4].

What are the signs and symptoms of COVID-19?

Symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to common cold like fever, tirednessand dry cough. Bodyaches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea may also present in some individuals.2 In 80% of cases patient recovers from the disease without any treatment,just like other common colds.Data analysis done by researchersshows that COVID-19 affects older persons and persons with medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes with serious illness more often than others.

Causes of stress and anxiety due to COVID-19

Coronavirus spreads from person to person by the droplets from the nose or mouth of the infected person coming out when he coughs, sneezes, or exhales. That is why one meter distance between two people is necessary. It can spread if the droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. Hence to avoid such contact spread government has taken a bold step to lockdown the whole country.On the other hand,some people may have impact on psychology due to self-isolation, lack of social life, too much use of electronic devices, etc.Impact of the infection is rapidly changing and can be confusing, overwhelming and scary. Dealing with high risk family member or patients, a roller coaster economy, adjustment of unfamiliar situation can pile up the stress and can negatively impact the mind and body.Below are 6 important factors affecting psychologicallyduring COVID-19.

1. Stress and anxiety due to lack of social life

Human beings are the social animal. This social distancing come with own risks. This isolation and loneliness can increase the depression and anxiety even impact the physical health. Psychologist Samantha Brooks, PhD, at Kings College London, and colleagues in their research found the negative psychological impact of the quarantine such as post-traumatic stress, confusion of mind and anger.[5] 

2. Stress due to financial problem

Due to lockdown many people become jobless especially who were relying on daily wages. People are in fear and anxiety of losing jobs. Unemployment rate has always been on higher side in India in recent times. The urban unemployment rate was 7.16% in January 2020 which rose by 30.9% in March 2020 due to COVID-19 according to data released by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE).[6] 

3. Fear of lack of daily usage products

Many people are doing panic purchasing due to fear of non-availability of the daily usage product in the market/shops. Unnecessarily they are storing the material in their house which is leading to high demand and high price rate and burden to poor people. 

4. Fear of near and dear one getting infected

People are in constant fear of being infected due lack of awareness and constant increase in the infection data.This virus becomes a pandemic in very short span of time which has created the panic condition among the people. As we have discussed above that COVID-19 shows severe symptoms in people suffering from diabetes, hypertension, or any medical conditions and older people. India is home to over 60 million adults with diabetes[7], 32.5% are suffering from hypertension[8], 1.31 billion people are suffering from asthma[9]. This data can be the matter of concern.

5. Role of media in anxiety and distress

It is vital to be aware and informed but obsessively checking the data can lead to fear anxiety and depression. Undisrupted news of COVID 19 on news channels and unauthenticated news from social media are working as a fuel in this panic situation. As per the study media of any kind can undermine mental health.[10] 

6.    No treatment in main stream medicine

As we are aware there is no line of treatment in main stream medicine or any vaccine is available. This is creating chaos in the society. Hence even common flu causes much fear in the patients.

Impact of stress and anxiety on mind and body

Reaction of stress, anxiety and depression can appear in a variety of physical, psychological, emotional and behavioral symptomsof an individual.Individual may feel headaches, neck tension,gastrointestinal problems, lack of sleep, fatigue feeling, lack of appetite, etc. Emotionally and psychologically it can appear as negative vision of things or daily events, discouragement, insecurity, sadness, anger, etc. Difficulty in concentration, irritability, increase use of tobacco, alcohol can be the behavioral symptom.

Some important tips to manage the stress and anxiety in COVID-19     
  • Getting enough sleep is very important during times like this.
  •  Minimize the news watching time to half an hour. Minimize the social media activity and be active in spending time with family members.
  • Time can be utilized to listening music, dancing, exercising, reading or any hobby that makes individual satisfies.
  • Doat least 1 hour exercise for the better digestion and to boost the immunity.
  • Social media can be a powerful tool if used wisely people may connect to their loved ones.
  • Make it a priority to stay in touch with friends and family. If you tend to withdraw when depressed or anxious, think about scheduling regular phone, chat, or Skype dates to counteract that tendency.
  • Sunshine and fresh air helps the individual to take out from the depression and low mood.
Association between anxiety, stress and weak immunity

There are several studies supporting that stress and anxiety are interlinked. The relation between psychological and physiological features of disease and progression through psychoneuroimmunology is reported.It is found that chronic stress and depression probably impair the immune response and contribute to the development and progression of disease.[11]In the report relationship between anxiety disorders and a wide range of physical disorders was examined. Multiple logistic regression analysis is used to find the relationship between pastyear anxiety disorder diagnosis and pastyear chronic physical disorder. Anxiety disorders were positively found associated with physical disorders.[12] Homoeopathic master Dr. Kent quoted referring an incidence of epidemic “Man is protected from sickness in two ways, by Homoeopathy and by use.The physician and the nurse who go into the district of yellow fever or typhoid or diphtheria or smallpox, who keep busy, who have, in the highest sense of the word, the true love of the use, who have gone into the work as mediums of mercy, will be largely protected just simply from their love of the work, from their delight in it.They have no fear. Fear is an overwhelming cause of sickness; those who fall prey to fear are likely to become sick, but those who, face disease with no fear are likely to remain well; they do sometimes fall sick, it is true, but I believe it is because they begin to have fear in the work.”[13].

Probable role of homoeopathy in the management of COVID-19 and related stress [14],[15],[16]

Homoeopathic remedies have been used as prophylactic to prevent the epidemic since centuries.Tracing the history it was Hahnemann who first applied the genus epidemicus in 1799 during a scarlet fever epidemic he treated in the German town Königslutter. It is an interesting story that how Dr. Hahnemann had accidentally discovered the genus epidemicus. A few members of large family with scarlet fever approached Dr. Hahnemann for treatment. He noticed that a child already under the doses Belladonna for other problem did not develop symptoms of scarlet fever. That was the moment he discovered Belladonna as a prophylactic for the entire family which he administered to all of them. Hahnemann concluded that a remedy that rapidly cures at the onset of an illness would be the best preventative.[17]

Homoeopathy was successfully applied during the epidemic of Spanish flu in 1918-19, where around 20 million people died globally. Mortality rate in homoeopathic treated population was 1-2%, whereas it was 30-60% in people treated by conventional physicians.[18],[19]Chikungunya, dengue fever, acute encephalitis/japanese encephalitis, cholera and dengue were also successfully managed with homoeopathy.[20]

Recenlty Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India has published the recommendation of Expert Committee constituted by CCRH for the using of Arsenicum album 30CH as Genus epidemicus for prevention.[21],[22],[23] Following that, many governments and autonomous bodies under different governments have used this as prophylactic.[24],[25]Apart from that, many other stalwarts have suggested possible role of other drugs in the current situation[26],[27],[28]A group of homoeopaths from Italy have published an observational study of confirmed or suspected COVID-19 patients.[29] None of the patients was required hospitalization.

There are several concepts of homoeopathic prescription. One among them is psychosomatic concept. Prescription is based on analyzing the symptoms of mind and body. Below we are elaborating the indications of few homoeopathic remedies that can help to boost the immunity against infections and also to manage stress during the lockdown.
