New Delhi: The Ministry of AYUSH has once again reiterated the use of alternative medicines such as homoeopathy and ayurveda to ward off coronavirus, and also recommended sipping water boiled with tulsi, ginger and turmeric to fight the infection.

The ministry had advised the use of homeopathy for the prevention of COVID-19 infection and “symptomatic management” using Unani medicines in an advisory issued in January this year also. The advisory courted controversy and received a lot of criticism.

The latest advisory was sent to the chief secretaries of all states and union territories on 6 March. 

This time, however, the ministry has attached a separate annexure with the advisory, which contains supporting evidence in the form of 33 research studies.

“These interventions from different AYUSH systems of medicines are supported with evidence for promotion of immunity and help in improving the respiratory symptoms in similar diseases,” wrote Rajesh Kotecha, secretary, Ministry of AYUSH, in the letter.

“In this regard, a separate list of references is also enclosed in annexure II for your ready reference.”

The advisory, accessed by ThePrint, suggested the consumption of “Arsenicum album 30” and stated that “Arsenic album is a common prescription in the cases of respiratory infections in day to day practice”.

Arsenicum album 30 is a homeopathy pill.

The old advisory had also recommended a course of Arsenicum album 30.

The Ministry of AYUSH stands for Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa Rigpa and Homoeopathy.

Sip boiled water with tulsi, ginger, turmeric

Apart from medicines, the new advisory suggested frequent sipping of water boiled with tulsi leaves, crushed ginger and turmeric.

“Appropriate rest and timely sleep are advisable. The practice of yogasana and pranayama under the guidance of qualified yoga instructors is recommended,” it said.  

In the letter, Kotecha wrote, “Even though there is no panic response warranted, AYUSH being one of the important ministry equipped for providing appropriate response to the circumstances that arose due to this public health challenge, it is worthwhile to associate with stakeholders in eliciting AYUSH based public health response considering the strength and evidences of these systems.

“In the past also, interventions under AYUSH systems had been varyingly used for making an effective public health response in similar situations faced in many states, union territories.” 

Different prescriptions

The four-page long advisory divided under four heads — prevention, symptom management of COVID-like illness, add on interventions to the conventional care and general preventive measures — stresses the importance of ayurveda, homeopathy, Unani and siddha.

“The preventive aspect of homoeopathy is well-known, and historically, homoeopathy has reportedly been used for prevention during the epidemics of cholera, spanish influenza, yellow fever, scarlet fever, diphtheria, typhoid etc,” the letter stated.

It suggests the use of ayurveda medicine “Samshamani Vati” twice a day with warm water.

Under siddha, it advises “Nilavembu Kudineer decoction” twice a day and in Unani, it suggests preparation of “decoction by boiling Behidana, Unnab, Sapistan in water.

“The drugs used in the preparation of this decoction have been reported to have antioxidant activity, immuno-modulatory, antiallergic, smooth muscle relaxant activity and anti-influenza activity. This decoction may be taken twice a day for 14 days,” the letter stated.

  1. ancient yogic philosophy seven chakra wheels of life were recognised as the key central points where nadis ie nerves converge.solar plexus chakra materialistic chakra derangement by faulty emotions rigidty dogmatic life etc considered root cause of severe pathological diseases like arthritis sour perspiration mucus etc.doctors treat it as acidity inflammation etc and vicious circle never ends.need of hour is to publish articles understandable by public as lady katherine hurst explains at lawofattraction dot com ,homeopath herscu paul example kalicarb remedy circle for solar plexus etc ,eminent doctors from all pathies share their experience,leaving the debate as a post mortem strategy to journalism and some comments here there do not serve purpose..

  2. natural immunity protector against any specific germ depends on absorption natural elements sunlight water food esp quality of food not counted in calories,gd pettitt remarked in article heal thyself journal oct 1935 vol lxx no 838.earlier times morning time was for religious prayers plan daytime work schedule,now it is time to read news papers surf internet full of bitter political statements against each other affects public mind in turn affect health,such part of disease can be cured by oneself,prevention is better than cure and if one still wants to be selfstyled politician it will effect health esp heart so only path is allopathy for them,other cases natural alternative medicine route try first will be beneficial.

  3. Information is indestructible. It can be theoretically retrieved. Homeo remedies contain information of what was once dissolved in the solution.
    A cure as described in the homeopathic materia medica is actually retrieval of information. Avogadro is irrelevant here. Homeopathy is consistent with physics. As per the drug relationship, every homeo effect can be shown to be an orthogonal vector rotation in an abstract vector space. A hilbertspace to be precise.

  4. Ayush recommended arsenic30 and top indian homeopath sankaran rajan recommended camphora 1m.the hindu reporter gautam s mangle reported mumbai police distributing camphora.now read comments of topmost american homeopath dana ullman about camhora in hpathy journal latest issue.nash long back told camphora for collapse stage with painless stool or no stool.means can be tried to save person near death.in homeopathic herald of nc das jun 1955 volxvi no3 ,author ah grimmer clarifies homeopathy does not work if there is some block,example given aluminium vessel toxicity clear by cadmium oxide first vaccinosis side effects by thuja so when body is clear of poisions in blood then only homeopathy remedy will act.time has come public will start blaming journalists who publish dhamaka type news and do not follow up case.any news on covid being serious issue requires scrutiny at ministerial level before publication.even casual comments of non professionals like me be deleted if not found up to mark.public is more dear to govt than few known personalities.

  5. Pick Me Up And Put Me To Test “
    If some plants are toxic or poisonous or dangerous ,like Datura/ धतूरा, Calotropis/ मदार/ अकौआ, Parthenium/ गाजर घास, Nerium Oleander, Ricinus/ Castor Beans/ अरंडी, Plumeria/ चम्पा / Frangipani/ गुलचीन, tobacco , Ganja , Crab’s Eye Plant/ Rosary Pea/ गुंची, Cascabela thevetia/ Yellow Oleander/पीला कनेर, Dieffenbachia, Cerbera odollam/ सरबेरा ओडोलम , then if some other plants produces Vitamins and nutritional that are required for human body like (You can long list them by yourself ) then logically all can say that the plants have some bad and good effect on human body.
    When such plants have destructive and digestive and supportive elements or extracts in them logically, intelligently, with bare minimum commonsense, we can also say that they will have also some Corona curative elements in them. Identification of ‘that” particular plant is the only issue. If some think Germans are more intelligent and when both Indians and German use Homeopathy, then why do some Indians underestimate Indians alone.
    Ignore “itchers (ditchers) of India Cowhage (: Liguminosae) (also known as Kiwach, Alkushi, Nasugunnni kai or Nai”corna”) have a heavy itching producing seeds. Some ignorant people get itching when you support Homeopathy or Ayurveda.
    Let us ignore them & say GTH to them. Use modem techniques and labs to experiment or to develop “anti corona virus or spray or immune essences or extracts’ from various plants around us. I am sure; you will find one with anti Corona Curative capabilities. Long Live Indian Ayurveda, Indian Homeopathy and Indian Unani!
    Look that plant, outside your lab is calling you; don’t think it is due to wind; it may be saying to you “Pick Me Up And Put Me To Test”. All the best Indian Scientists and Pharma companies!

  6. Maybe this one fact will close the mouths of everyone who is tragically brainwashed and steered by pharmaceutical industrialists “controlled media,” governments, and governmental health organizations, public authorities and agencies to doubt, mock, scoff , or slander the efficacy or otherwise).

    Before I state this one simple fact, let it be noted that I’m clearly aware that most opponents of Homeopathy are not as educated as the proponents of Homeopathy, but are always more than willing to spew senseless rhetoric in regards to healing and health.

    The One Fact no opponent of Homeopathy can deny is this:

    FACT 1a. Reactive Oxyhen Species or ROS (free radicals) destroy healthy cells, lipids, and proteins including DNA.

    Destruction of DNA leads to cancers and numerous acute infections and chronic diseases.

    Oxidative Stress weakens the immune system which will in turn make all pathogens (virus, bacterial, and fungi) harder to fight.

    Free Radicals and Oxidative stress are the cause of chronic diseases such as Hypertension. Diabetes, and Cancer (all of which makes COVID 19 extremely dangerous.

    FACT 1b. Antioxidants are the only substances or phytochemicals known to mankind that can kill “ROS,” or Free Radicals.

    Antioxidants are created by plants (fruits and vegetables) irregardless to the fact of whether a man eats herbs and spices in his daily diet or not. In other words, a man will consume a great deal of antioxidants in his basic diet in the form of Vitamins A, C, E, B, K, and Beta Carotine.

    A man will also consume these essential vitamins when he eats other animals or their milk and eggs that’s because the animals we eat consume plants.

    NOW, that we are ALL clear in our thinking and fundamentals of human health (all health begins on the atomic level, then the cellular level, then the tissue level, aand lastly, the organic level), we can start to understand why wise and smart individuals choose to include thousands of additional “herbs and spices” in their diets (along with breathing, meditation/mindfulness, and physical exercises) in the effort to treat and even cure acute and chronic illness and diseases.

    FACT 1c. There are thousands of herbs that are loaded with vitamins A, C, E, B, K, and beta carotene. Not to mention thousands of other antioxidants that are still being discovered by man. What will bombarding the human body with a barrage of different antioxidants do?

    KILL DISEASE CAUSING FREE RADICALS

    FACT 1b. Herbs and spices contain many anti-microbial phytochemicals which kill viruses. Bacteria, and fungi alike.

    WHERE IN THE WORLD DO YOU THINK PENICILLIN “ANTIBIOTICS” COME FROM IN THE FIRST PLACE?

    The answer is “fungi,” and fungi are “plants.”

    Now listen, all of you people telling homeopaths that there are absolutely NO MEDICINAL properties in plants, found just as ignorant as you all would telling the men who discovered the processes of making Peniccilin from fungi, that they’re fools for believing there are MEDICINAL PROPERTIES found in plants.

    Now, instead of keeping your big mouths closed while you study what many of us already know about herbs (because there’s a lot to learn) you’d rather waste your time arguing against Homeopaths all day.

    Result, you sit there “hopeless” and in great fear watching your loved ones die while waiting for “miracles” from your local hospital, while we continue to stockpile our precious Ashwaghanda, Holy Basil (Tulsi), Giloy. Ceylon Cinnamon, Tumeric, Garlic, Onions, Cloves, Ginger, Elderberry. Rosemary, Chaparral, Oreganol Jucie, Cayenne.

    And last but not definately not least, upon any first symptom of infection, we vaporize Eucalyptus into our nasal, sinus, and trachea passages to decrease the viral load before it descends into our lower respiratory tract in the first place.

    At the same time, we also flood our bloodstream with antimicrobials to further decrease the viral loads from the Coronavirus and bacterial load from the debris left behind by Apoptosis (death of Alveoli, bronchial, and immune cells).

    At the same time, these phytochemicals found in these herbs and spices are also curtailing the inflammation caused by our own immune response (The IL-6 Cytokine Storm), which by the way, is the cause of both ARDS and Sepsis.

    We bombard our bodies with soups, teas, oils, and vapors well before we get infected and even more so during the first signs or symptoms of infection, but what do you “non-homeopaths” do?

    NOTHING, you walk around the house all day doing absolutely nothing but waiting for you mild fever to develop into a severe fever. Then, you wait for your score throat to develop into a dry cough. Then, you wait for your dry cough to develop into pneumonia.

    YOU HAVE NO PLANS, AND NO HOPE BECAYSE YOU HAVE “NO KNOWLEDGE!”

    I live in Ohio, which is a Midwestern state located in the U.S. And I absolutely love medicine and health. I’m fascinated by Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and native American sciences.

    I wish everyone peace, health, knowledge, and hope!

    • Shut up. Homoeopathy is mostly mental science.
      If all they can suggest is most three main ingredients, tulsi ginger garlic turmeric and ashwagandha.
      All idiots who might take these medicine instead of going to a real doctor will spread it faster.
      adn this fact has nothing to do with how virus work.

    • You can’t find a better example of brainwashed than Homeopaths. You have to deny all education to believe in homeopathy. Everything. Because not even a single claim in Homeopathy is based on facts, science or evidence. You live in complete delusion.

      Even your “simple fact” is a delusion. Homeopaths are badly educated. Homeopathic critics are far more knowledgeable than Homeopaths. Homeopath arguments are canned arguments that repeat same disproven things over and over again.

      All your irrelevant free radical spam has nothing to do with Homeopathy. Good, eat lots of fresh vegetables and get your anti-oxidants, it will be good long term, but if you think that is going to protect you against this virus, you are super deluded.

      What I can tell from your post is you are quack-blog-reader, have absolutely no education in proper science. Can you tell me otherwise? That you actually majored science in college? Only uneducated naturopathic fans talk like this.

    • Fantastic, thankyou.
      Let the ignorant take the drugs and eat their chocolate and chips and see how long their bodies hold out. I hope they have health insurance.
      Fruits cleanse your body and vegetables rebuild your body. No drug can do that.
      I have had shockingly amazing results from homeopathy and herbs and I only dip in and out of these sciences.
      My friends who take pharmaceutical drugs come to me to ask advice on what to do for their hair is thinning and their nails going brittle….they dont go to their doctor. Why?
      I am copying your post for my files.
      Thankyou once again for your informed post

  7. Everybody should know that. Science are two. types. Now Homeopathy comes under which science. that also should be. known first prior comments. As Man whom we are treating are. biological one. as. Well medicine also. so every. Aspect of. Homoeopathy. Consider. Under. sameline. As medicine..is science. of experience, so in. Homoeopathy we can’t. fix everything in homoeopathy. If Biology., astronomy. are science. And homoeopathic medicines are biological. One than. Question. Of pseudo science. Why? So, please go. for. What. is Substantial theory, Descriptive science , ether theory for better understanding of. Homoeopathic. Science. Along with lots of. Scientific theory. Like matter. Can’t destroy but can be. divisible. into. Infinite etc.

  8. I am an retired civil engineer having no knowledge on the present covid.19. my request all allopathic, homeopaths,ayurvedic doctors unitedly make a research and kindly advice allopathic with homeopaths and ayurvedic medicine for present covid19 for benefit of people

    • Homeopaths and Ayurvedics have no history of presenting any useful research.
      They only jump up and down for everything – we have cure, we have cure.
      It always turns out to be false.
      They have no basic education.

  9. You have a headche. You visit a homoeopath. He gives u some dilutions. Your headache is gone next morning or within half n hour even. Here, allopaths say that it is just placebo effect or it is so because the body’s natural defense system makes it fit & u think that homoeopathy works!
    Instead, if u take allopathic medicines and ur headache vanishes the next day, allopaths are always there to take the credit! Then, they don’t talk about the body’s natural defense system!

    Here lies the problem. Homoeopathy has cured crores of patients. If u think that homoeopathy doesn’t work, just take a dose of Silicea CM/ Natrum Mur. CM/ etc. & still remain fit & healthy! If u die or ur condition becomes serious, don’t blame me. I challenge u, fucking allopaths will not be able to save u from the effects of Silicea CM! According to allopaths, CM has not got a single atom of the actual medicine. So, take it in & die in peace!

    Allopathy has a Trillion Trillion Trillion Dollars of market & business. Obviously, they will never wan’t it to collapse!

    Go hell with ur fucking science if it cannot prove the working methodology of Homoeopathy. People recover by using homoeopathy & that is sufficient!

    • You have no clue how clinical trials work, do you?

      All modern medicines (which have nothing to do with “allopathy”) are tested against a placebo.
      That is what Controlled in Randomized Controlled Trials means.

      Don’t analyze without minimum knowledge.

    • Tapas Mukherjee, you seem to have no idea what Controlled in Randomized Controlled Trial means.
      Every real medicine is tested against placebo.
      Science does exactly what you think it does not do.

      Silicea CM/ Natrum Mur. CM, when diluted beyond 30C are absolutely safe because they are only sugar pills and not medicine.
      Homeopathy protesters to take ‘mass overdose’ outside Boots
      https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2010/jan/29/sceptics-homeopathy-mass-overdose-boots
      Skeptics have done exactly what you have challenged, a long time ago too. Please keep up.

      FYI, Hell is also not real, just like Homeopathy. Nothing you believe is true. You live in fantasy.

      • You will not able to understand Homoeopathy.

        Dont try even, It has survived attacks from Centuries.

        Still stand with Pride and Honour.
        True….It cannot be measured in Test Tube procedure….RCT.

        U are providing Links for everything with here and there studies……R U SURE 100% there is nothing left in CM and LM Potency, they are just water……If No Just shut Up………Its beyond TODAYS MEASURING TECHINIQUES……Dont u HATERS admit THAT

        Yes Homeopathy is Science…….STILL TIME HAS TO COME……WHERE IT CAN BE VERIFIED ON SCIENTIFIC SCALE

        Hundreds of Years ago ……People thought Earth is Flat……..Millions of Years Ago…….Our Veda wrote Earth is Round

        CHAY You are spreading Hate and want to discourage Believers of Homoeopathy causing Defame our AYUSH TRADITIONAL MEDICINES……People like you have vanished…..But Homoeopathy, Ayurveda, Unani and Different Traditional still Stands with People and Believers

        • Yup, all scientists are 100% sure that Homeopathy is quackery. No doubt left.
          There is no scientist who says that Homeopathy is a science. There is no science of any kind in Homeopathy. All debunked.

          It survived attacks for centuries from facts because it is a religion, not science. Facts and science don’t matter for religions.

          Homeopathy is the flat earth of medicine. Obviously, Vedas did not write that earth is round, it was flat according to it. You can find dozens of flat earth quotes in it.

          What should I think of your mental capacity if you think Vedas were written millions of years ago? Only people who don’t use their brain believe in Homeopathy.

          COFFEE, I am talking pure science. I am ENCOURAGING people to learn science and learn the fact that it is Homeopaths who constantly defame modern medicine with lies.

          • CHAY

            U will take time to Grow your mental dimensions and Capacity

            There are two medicines in Homoeopathy Calcarea Phos 6x and Baryta Carb 200 they will help you a lot !

            Ancient Indian sages have known that the earth is round as far back as 900BCE when rishi Yajnavalkya wrote Shatpath Brahman, where 8.7.3.10 clearly indicate that he knew that the earth was round. This statement mentions that

            “The sun strings these worlds (interpreted as the earth, its atmosphere and other planets) to himself on a thread” Shatpatha Brahmana, 8.7.3.10

            The Aitareya Brahmana (2.7) states:

            “The [sun] never really sets or rises. In that they think of him ‘He is setting,’ having reached the end of the day, he inverts himself; thus he makes evening below, day above. Again in that they think of him ‘He is rising in the morning,’ having reached the end of the night he inverts himself; thus he makes day below, night above. He never sets; indeed he never sets.”

            In section 3.44, among other things, the Aitareya Brahmana states (translation by Haug):

            “The sun does never rise or set. When people think the sun is setting (it is not so). For after having arrived at the end of the day it makes itself produce two opposite effects, making night to what is below and day to what is on the other side.
            When they believe it rises in the morning (this supposed rising is thus to be explained for). Having reached the end of the night, it makes itself produce two opposite effects, making night to what is below and day to what is on the other side.”

            Not only are these texts saying that the earth is spherical, depending on how you interpret these texts, Shatpath Brahman seems to be proposing a heliocentric model of the solar system while from Aiteriya Brahman it is clear that the author knows that earth rotates on its axis to result in the creation of day and night.

            Now keep in mind that these texts were written around this time because it is around this time that writing started. When was this knowledge gained we have no idea. The knowledge could have been there long before these texts were written.

            So it is clear that Indians knew the earth was spherical long before Pythagoras was even born.

            U r replying same thing to each and Every Post ………….As Against Homoeopathy and Ayurveda, Even Now Vedas, Who are u, Where u people come from ?

            How much Hate is filled in your Self proclaiming Scientific Mind.

            For you it will take time to Go Beyond your class 9th Textbook of Chemistry, Physics and Biology

            Yes, CALCAREA PHOS 6X is the Answer if your long heighted, and if Short heighted BARYTA CARB 200 will work wonder for U

            Really Help u to GROW

            Nobody is taking you seriously !
            You are so panicked

          • One More thing!

            You called Homoeopathy a religion, In Religion you have to Pray and believe God for Some thing Good
            to happen

            But CHAAY u dont have to Believe and Pray in Homoeopathy, It will work for U , if u take medicines from a Good Homoeopath

            But u better not Go bcoz u r happy in your Brain

    • Do you understand you own comment?
      Homoeopathy mostly works with the placebo effect that too it rarely works.
      Allopathy medicine is only given when they work even without a placebo effect, that is why testing a vaccine takes 3 stop tried with 10 thousand patients all over the work.
      Whereas any day a person claiming to be Homoeopath without any proven research will say will suggest you gargle ginger or some nonsense.

    • Untested and unverified mixing of homoeopathy can cause a greater problem, Eg eating ginger with certain medicine reduces the efficiency of the medicine.
      One should not encourage a medicine that can be recommended without individual trial.

      An allopathic medicine main test is, it should work beyond placebo, whereas most homoeopathy is placebo + few natural ingredients that work for cold and stuff but is recommended for everything..

  10. the problem in here is they always try to fusion with allopathy instead of dealing with a patient with their only ayush med,so which saved the patient , also there are conditions which resolve spontaneously with conservative treatments alone !(placebo comes in play here too) its funny they would say adjuvant effects !! also we cant give away a patient to ayush to trials at this stage as human lives cant be played with.. so this game of ego and fake medicines and claim will never end. the truth.

  11. We are the most idiotic major country in the entire world when it comes to medicine or science.
    We think Homeopathy, cow dung and cow urine are medicine. No matter how many times scientists say, they are not, we don’t listen.
    When govt declared Janata (voluntary) curfew to promote social distancing, people partied on street banging metal plates. Ultimately, they needed to be thrashed to get the message.
    The mere existence of AYUSH proves that we are the dumbest country in the world. The comments below show how dumb we are too.

    • Dont act like a superhuman.dont think that science answers all your questions. dont hold a concept that all western or white men theories are ultimate. dont act like a paid writer to pharma industry.

      • I am not acting like anything.
        I am giving you knowledge about what the whole world knows because you are very ignorant about science.
        See my post on below giving 12 major country health organizations reporting on Homeopathy.
        We are the only dumb country.

        Also, homeopathy is exactly a western or white men theory that Homeopaths think is ultimate. Your cognitive dissonance is spectacular. How ironical.

    • A few years ago, Marijuana was not a part of mainstream medicine. Though it was and is still prescribed in Ayurveda. The medicine is called Vijaya. This is just a case in example. While Science has done fabulous work in creating medicines that use even heavy metals like arsenic tri oxide for chemotherapy( also prescribed in Siddha), the fact remains that the pharma giants do blind doctors and other scientists, so that a particular research and drug extraction process can bring in their moolah. In Siddha or ayurveda it was never about how their pharma company could make money out of it. The herbs grow in the wild, and due to commercialisation, they are now bringing in an industry into that as well.
      No gomutra is not a prescribed medicine on its own and it shouldn’t be. But herbs and naturally occuring elements, have always been a part of modern medicine and we should never limit medicine to only conclud researches. In the sense research more.
      https://www.cherianashram.com/cancercure.html
      Check this out.
      And it doesn’t matter if you opine with this.
      Nature is the best cure.
      Take a look at the air and water post the lockdown

      • It is not that important what was being used. What is important is when and how it is being used.

        If we used Herb X for Y and we now know it is not useful for Y but for Z, that does validate old medicine.
        It just means they had availability to X, but failed to understand what it does or what the diseases do.
        Everything has naturally occurring elements, nothing doesn’t. You are not thinking at all.

        Anyone who knows science and reads AYUSH material will just die laughing at the sheer stupidity in them.

        We should ignore research conclusions and do our own research at home? That is exactly what science denial is.

        Your dangerous quack cancer cure web site is thankfully suspended now.

  12. May I know what is the problem if we do a RCT on Coronavirus disease with Homoeopathy? Yes its true that CCRH recommented ARS ALB as preventive even without trying in actual cases is WRONG. Actually what is to be done is the try Homoeopathic medicine in hundrends of patients with COVID and see which medicine is indicated in maximum number of cases and with good result then the probability of is high, if we give the medicine in the beginning itself it, will not progress further.Also epidemiological research in one of the hospitals of COVID 19 cases where patients could be assigned at random to two different groups, one for conventional treatment and to the other group will be added the homeopathic treatment, (treating each patient individually) and after treating a sample of at least 200 cases from each group to evaluate the results and to find out if the homeopathic group has a superior outcome in survival, viral load and general conditions, can provide evidence. Only thing is that we dont have big multinational drug companies to fund for research. In this research paper done by a Italian Haematologist, Bellavite P, Signorini A, Marzotto M, Moratti E, Bonafini C, Olioso D. Cell sensitivity, non-linearity and inverse effects.Homeopathy. 2015 Apr; 104(2):139-60.there is some proof that Ars Alb has some effects on immune system.Here is the statement “Arsenic album as one of the constituents in a formulation has been shown to affect HT29 cells and human macrophages. Also, it showed ↓NF-κB hyperactivity (reduced expression of reporter gene GFP in transfect HT29 cells), ↓TNF-α release in macrophages.” But its effects on Corona virus disease and ACE2 receptor is yet to be proved.Even the pharmacological action of chloroquine on corona virus disease is also not known and it is prescribed for the same on basis on clinical trials only, then what is the wrong in doing clinical trials with Homoeopathic medicine. All countries are doing the trial and error method in the expense of human life. Research in integrated treatment of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine find good result. If Homoeopathy is accepted to do integrative research with mordern medicine we can find the truth. If scientific community consider Homoeopathy as placebo then allow us to give Homoeopathic medicine instead of placebo in one arm of RCT and see the result. Without even trying and criticising is not wise. And if you do not have any treatment experience with Homoeopathy and also don’t have any knowledge in immunology then better don’t write any article related to that and leave this work for experts.

    • Thousands of RCTs have been already done conclusively proving that Homeopathy is completely fake.

      All these statements below are based on RCTs. All are major national healthcare organization. Only India is the dumb country here. Sad!!

      1. ‘The principles of homeopathy contradict known chemical, physical and biological laws and persuasive scientific trials proving its effectiveness are not available.’
      Russian Academy of Sciences

      2. ‘Homeopathy should not be used to treat health conditions that are chronic, serious, or could become serious. People who choose homeopathy may put their health at risk if they reject or delay treatments for which there is good evidence for safety and effectiveness.’
      National Health and Medical Research Council, Australia

      • Apart from the articles you mentioned, have you gone through what studies have been conducted by CCRH and how would you explain the results shown in these studies? Please be sure to do a thorough search before comparing homoeopathy with cow urine. Be a person who is wise and open to new concepts, there are huge numbers of homoeopathic doctors practicing throughout the country and giving wonderful results, I would love to hear on how you reason those results on scientific basis 🙂

        • CCRH is not considered a real scientific organization by any scientists anywhere.
          It exists only to create fake studies that make it sound like Homeopathy works.
          None of CCRH’s studies when tested by scientists give same result.
          It is a marketing agency, not science agency. The whole science performance of India is quite pathetic actually.

          India is the only ignorant country which manufactures homeopaths because it cannot train real doctors. All scientific countries rejected it. You are still in denial with all the reports I mentioned because that would mean you have to face the fact that you are a quack and not a real doctor.

  13. Don’t forget my Indian friends there was d days when all world laugh on Indian traditions n habits but today after the long decades ago now whole world is stick and follow our culture n habits so we all need to understand that the old medicine system which is natural n mild is the most powerful system for healing corona or any viral affection if any one not believing on us give us a chance to treat A corona patient it is possible to make cure by Homoeopathic medicines

  14. About 10 days ago, I had sore throat 3 days, got scared and rushed to allopathy for antibiotics and syrup… making me drowsy and no improvement. Then i braved it all, and thought my grandma never had tablets but lived till 95, so switched to warm milk pepper turmeric ginger, ginger pepper turmeric honey and thulasi leaves boiled in water. My cough, cold and headache cured after 3 days. For sore throat i took Sasvara lehyam from Kottakkil, and in 2 days i was back to normal. Hurrah to natural remedies anytime, whatever follish blokes may comment against it.

    • Your grandma had covid-19?? Are you stupid man.. Stay home and die, please don’t go out and kill others. Primitive idiots.

      • Your own stupidity and ignorance have no rival. It is you who think COVID-19 is a big deal simply because of the failure of western pharmaceutical drugs to combat it. In natural medicine COVID-19 is a child’s play. I am a Pharmacist but I practice homeopathy. I have cured so many diseases considered incurable by orthodox doctors including cancer. History has also confirmed that homeopathy is more effective than pharmaceutical pills in epidemics. The deliberate ignorance of the western world baffles me. No one is more idiot than you. Why don;t you try it first and then publish the failure. There are so many researches confirming the efficacy of homeopathy. WHO recognises homeopathy as the second fastest growing medical system in the world.

  15. As per symptoms Its not Arsenic Alb but Bryonia 200. However nobody has ever tested to come out as proving everything is mere speculative.

  16. Politics apart. we don’t have time to prove the efficacy of said treatment by AYUSH and there is no other treatment in any of the western science till date. But one thing is sure, the said treatment doesn’t have any side effects. Maximum what happens if it not works, we will be in the same situation as the remaining world. If it works, then it can do wonders. Nothing wrong in following the guidelines set by AYUSH

  17. Om Namo Baghvate, Vasudevaya, Dhanvatraya, amrutha kalasa hasthaya, sarva vinasaya, thriloka nadhaya, Sree Maha Vishnuvay Namaha. One should chant 12 times morning and evening to keep away desease. 🙏. Don’t know whether ministry would prescribe this sloka

  18. Homoeopathy medicine.
    Aconite N 200 is the suitable medicine for covid 19.The Department of Homeopathy requested to prove it and advise to govt of India in the interest of public.

    • Till date Department of Homeopathy produced exactly ZERO proofs.
      In facts no Homeopathy organization has ever produced any proof.

      They can’t because homeopathy is a scam and does not contain anything. So it obviously does not work and only fools think it does.

    • India have been in the forefront of medicine, oh not your greedy western type, but the types of charaka and shushrusha. Nature can cure all your illness, probided you embrace nature. We dont need Darwin award, in fact he may want to plead an award from India. Dont underestimate India’s power as a medical stronghouse, again not your chemical pills and syrups but natural. Ask your great grandma how many times she visited doctors?

      • You retard my great grandma didn’t have to face covid-19 also the quality of food, air and water was much better back then. And they did everything manually they did not have so many machines like us that have made us less active than them. STOP TALKING LIKE AN IDIOT. YOU ARE A TRUE FOOL!!

      • There is nothing useful in Charaka or Sushruta texts that we can use – Hindutva types are delusional with regards to what is actually in these texts.

        This is right up there with we invented airplanes nonsense.

  19. Don’t show your stupidity openly. Tulsi, Ginger & Turmeric are traditional home remedy for Seasonal Cough,Common Cold & Change.
    It improves your Immunity against Cough & Cold. Ayush has not prescribed it for the remedy of Covid 19

  20. Hatred for RSS and hatred for Ayurveda go together .i.e. if you hate RSS, you are likely to hate Ayurveda. Reasons for hatred for both are also similar. I have observed RSS and Ayurveda haters have preset minds. The mind setting is done by Meculey education system that has promoted western thinking and ridiculed the thousands years old indian knowledge. I have seen it in TV debates and here in comments. Even though allopathy talks about role of immune system for fighting infection diseases but they shy way accepting the Ayurveda prescriptions for improving immune system in humans. In one TV debate four allopathy doctors used all tricks to demean the sole Ayurveda doctor views to strengthen the human immune system through Ayurveda prescriptions. . It was disgusting and made me rethink about the benefits of Ayurveda medicines irrespective of what the closed minds of allopathy doctors.

    • Can’t even spell Macaulay- chala aaya comment marne. Evidence based medicine is the only option in a crisis like this. But Bhakts with their closed minds will never learn. And mark my words – when they are themselves affected- they will consult “allopathic” doctors they are so fond of abusing. Bunch of hypocrites.

      • Anonymous , gadhe name kyun nahi dala.
        And forget macaulay country’s pappu can’t spell out vishveshvaraya. Chala aya gyan dene.
        Ayurvedic medicines are evidence based and researched with experience for thousands of years unlike the trial and error methods of today’s allopathy

        • Ayurvedic medicines are not evidence based.
          After 70 years of research, not one good medicine found from it that any scientific organization outside India recommends.
          Science based Trial and Error is research. Ayurveda is based on belief doctrines, not evidence.

      • Maculay or gadda all same! The one who destroyed India’s advanced system of family and gurukul learning. You dont know the benefits but you rush to fill forms at international boarding schools. These are western extracts of India’s own Gurukul system.

    • Ak dev.
      You know what the problem is? Evidence. Do you know how to get evidence. To get evidence you have to do research. And to do research you have to ask questions. But in indian system of medicine not only in medicine but all aspects of life it is prohibited. So our medicine still in its infant age. After thousands of year it did not even reach toddler age. Just because we did not question.
      On the other hand modern medicine is open to critical examination. All the evidence and research and their pros and cons are available in public domain to exam them. And that purify and sophisticate them. And some times they are dropped after successfully using many of years. Because of their counter effect.
      And the one who believe that there is no side effects is completely ignorant about medicine. Every kinds of medicine has some counter effects.
      So criticism doesn’t qualify hatred. Particularly in practice of medicine. It should be open to all and welcomed.
      Now this is the time where you have to believe v in evidence based as therapy. And for prevention do what government has advised.

  21. As an Indian I know and i have felt the health benefits of Turmeric, Ginger and Tulsi. we all consume and gargle with salt and lukewarm water when we get cold and cough. I don’t get why some stupids don’t understand the benefits of Ayurveda, they just thik allopathy is cure for all diseases. but Allopathy cures one disease and causes more.

  22. Human life has no value for these idiots. Their sick ego is paramount for them. Why don’t they send a team of dedicated “believers” with their hot water bottles and tulsi leaves to the midst of COVID – 19 infected people, and see if they come back alive to tell heroic tales?
