Homeopathy is a pseudoscientific system of alternative medicine. It was created in 1796. In this pandemic, where many doctors and scientists are failed to find the Corona Virus Pandemic, there are some doctors are experts who believe homeopathy is the panacea of this fatal virus. Homeopathy has proved itself in several epidemics. It boosts immunity and increases the growth of the good bacteria in our body, which helps us to fight against any virus.

Father of Homeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann coined the phrase ‘genus epidemics’, which indicated the remedy which can cure any epidemic. Homeopathy has also helped cure the Spanish flu epidemic which happened after the First World War, plus, it has also proved its significance in curbing dengue and Swine flu.

As we all know that, it has been more than three months for us fighting with this contagious Coronavirus disease. With the zeal to find the drug for this virus, one of the practioner of Homeopathy said that they should also be given the chance of testing the drug of this virus and they should also be considered on the same page as of other doctors. IANS, Dr. Kushal Banerjee, one of the largest and oldest practitioners of India and abroad, while speaking to News 18, has said that “Homeopathy has a good track record with epidemics and infectious disease, therefore people should people should keep their biases aside and should try all treatments possible to save lives amid this pandemic”.

But in the meantime, the major concern is, whether homeopathy is medicine for novel coronavirus disease or not? To answer this question, Dr. Banerjee said that “There is not much data available about COVID-19. Homeopathic medicines are also given even in ICU and in case of multiple organ failure, patients start recovering quickly. There are very effective medicines in homeopathy for respiratory disease. Right now it is important to provide benefits to as many patients as possible”.  He further added that he and his team are in the process of analyzing data.

“We are also running an online survey to estimate the result of that prescription. The database of 15000 people is ready. It will be the second-largest study on COVID-19 anywhere in the world; the largest is of 20000 patients. We have got responses from patients from 12 countries including the US, Italy, Norway, and Sweden. These data are looking very promising”.

There are many myths about Homeopathy, and one of the greatest myths is that it a very long procedure and it will take a long time to cure. This myth has been neglected by Homeopathy doctors. According to them, the time depends on the disease. Homeopathy can cure some diseases in 2-3 hours and whereas some diseases can be cured within 15 minutes. They are also given to the patients on a ventilator. Homeopathic medicines are very effective, especially for respiratory disease.

Allopathic medicines may work a little bit faster as compared to Homeopathy, but it comes with some side-effects. Whereas, Homeopathic medicines are effective as well as there is no side-effect of them. Moreover, they are very beneficial to respiration. Thus, it may be concluded that now it time to bring Homeopathy in the fight against the Coronavirus.
