The Indian government, which promotes alternative medicine system in the country, released on January 29, which advocate the use of homeopathy and traditional medicine, such as Indian system of medicine, for the new ward off infections circulating 2019-nCoV coronavirus. This includes the use of homeopathic preparation called Arsenicum album 30C and two drops of sesame oil in each nostril every morning for the prevention and Unani medicine (treatment based on the teachings of Hippocrates and Galen) to reduce the symptoms of coronavirus infection. While citing AYUSH practitioners century of experience with this product as proof behind his suggestion, the media and the scientific community criticized as counterproductive guidance in dealing with a serious health emergency.

“It is very irresponsible of the Ministry of AYUSH to support homeopathy because it is entirely weaken the public understanding of science and medicine, and improve pseudoscience with potentially dangerous consequences,” said, a science writer Irish have shown, in an email to The Scientist. Grimes believes that the proposed mechanism of homeopathy does not make sense when analyzed from the perspective of the physical and chemical, and said it was not surprising, therefore, that the biological effects of homeopathy can not be measured in large scale clinical trials.

To date, more than 31,000 people in more than two dozen countries have been infected with 2019-nCoV, including three confirmed cases in India. According to the World Health Organization, there is no intervention has not been identified to treat the virus, although it is being done to find a treatment and develop a vaccine.

Using homeopathy as an alternative therapy that effectively the risk of compromising the cause or treatment of symptoms or-if treatment is not available-creates a false sense of security.

Until then, said the only way to prevent infection is to avoid contact with the virus and those who are sick, to wash your hands and not touching your face. But (CCRH) of AYUSH Ministry claims that no other prevention options.

, the head CCRH, telling The Scientist that Arsenicum album 30C, the solution homeopathic made with dilute arsenic trioxide to the remains of little or no arsenic is used in respiratory disorders and have been used extensively for more than 220 years with a good safety record, was found to be effective prophylaxis during an outbreak of swine flu in India in 2009. a conducted by Robert Mathie of the British homeopathic Association and the group, in collaboration with CCRH, reported in Homeopathy that of various homeopathic medicine given to patients with symptoms of swine flu, the most successful album Arsenicum in relieving fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, and headache. No control group. On the other, placebo-controlled study conducted by CCRH that homeopathic remedies are also found to reduce the flu-like symptoms.

These results lead CCRH to look into the possibility of homeopathic intervention against the new coronavirus. Before the 2019-nCoV infection has emerged in India, scientists at CCRH collected clinical features new cluster of cases in China which was published on January 24, which they put into the treasury instrument called homeopathy. repertory is a database of historic texts in homeopathy, and when practitioners entering symptoms, tool fetches the text on the drug should be given. “Every time we repertorize patients, we pretty much consultation of all generations of homeopaths who have contributed to this database,” said, a homeopathic practitioner at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia and major general secretary, association of homeopathic doctors. By matching the clinical features, the treasury find Arsenicum album 30C becomes suitable fit for the current outbreak.

The basic premise of homeopathy is that the drug produces a set of symptoms when given to a healthy person under the arrangement of control can be prescribed in a very diluted form with people who are sick with symptoms of the same, explaining, doctor homeopathy is based in New Delhi. This is what is known as similibus Similia curentur in homeopathy, Latin phrase meaning “like cures like.” , Father Kushal and renowned homeopathic practitioner, said that by increasingimmune system, Arsenicum album can potentially reduce the virulence of the coronavirus, thus tempering the intensity of the disease.

“We do not claim 100 percent protection with Arsenicum album. Just take the drug will not work, “said Khurana. “All the general measures for infection in the air should be taken.” He further added that if the person is infected, they should immediately seek medical treatment.

The alert does not allay concerns homeopathic detractors, who say there is no scientific evidence to show that strict homeopathic remedies can prevent coronavirus infections or reduce symptoms. “The claim of some experts that homeopathic medicine homeopathy is effective in treating or preventing a coronavirus infection is not based on any evidence at all,” a professor emeritus at the University of Exeter in England and critic of homeopathy, told The Scientist in an email. Ernst points to that found no difference between Arsenicum album and placebo in preventing fever after vaccination. Other studies in which homeopathy is found to be ineffective, including one in, another in, and again.

“Using homeopathy as an alternative therapy the risk of compromising the cause or symptom-effective treatment or if treatment is not available-create a false sense of security,” said Ernst. “In any case, it would be a waste of resources.”

Even among proponents of homeopathy, there is disagreement about the best way to prevent coronavirus. , The second vice president of the American Institute of Homeopathy, said that the Lancet article that scientists at CCRH used to come up with their suggestions do not provide enough information about the symptoms to make homeopathic prescription is accurate.

He said that perhaps the best way to validate the value of homeopathic therapy will study the results of comparative clinical infection coronaviral acute by giving homeopathic medicine is individualized for the experimental group and allopathic medicines other, with at least 250 patients in each -masing groups. “A careful statistical analysis of the results of the study and honest scientific truth will speak,” he said.

Fleisher Against this proposal, Grimes said that this is totally unethical. “Homeopathy does not have a plausible mechanism of action, and it really was not responsible to suggest that in trials for serious pandemic potential. Large-scale studies of homeopathy clearly been demonstrated for decades that the same result-that it just does not work, “he said.
