Many have been promoting alternative cures and prophylaxis for the Coronavirus COVID-19 and homeopathy seems to be the most promising and most actively circulated prophylaxis according to our homeopathic college and society.
The most commonly recommended homeopathic medicines are; Arsenicum album, Gelsemium, Influenzinum, Mercurius, Bryonia and Argentum Nitricum. The Government of India has officially announced Arsenicum album as a likely prophylactic for Coronavirus.
As all we know now, homeopathy works on symptoms for individuals. At this stage, you need to consult your homeopath in any case.
Myth. Cornonavirus is a fatal infection for everyone.No. If you look at the mortality rate of recent epidemics and even the usual flu, you will realize that Covid-19 is not a life-threatening infection for most people. If you have history of lung disease, COPD, asthma, diabeties, heart disease, any history of fibrosis on your lung, you have to be very careful.
Typical signs and symptoms include: fever, dry cough, fatigue, sputum production, shortness of breath, sore throats, headache, myalgia or arthralgia, chills, nausea or vomiting, nasal congestion, diarrhea, and hemoptysis and conjunctival congestion. People with COVID-19 generally develop signs and symptoms, including mild respiratory symptoms and fever, on an average of 5-6 days after infection (mean incubation period 5-6 days, range 1-14 days, although there is an odd one of 23 days). Most people infected with COVID-19 virus have a mild disease and recover.
Coronavirus, looks like a tennis ball with spikes on it, because of this spikes it attaches to your cells. Coronavirus COVID-19 likes to attach to lung cells. For spreading out it needs humans, so that is the reason that you shall not be close to someone, sneeze or cough near them(better not to touch anyone for a while) because it is transmitted human to human by touching mucosal areas, which means when you touch your dirty hand to your mouth, eyes, or nose you can get the virus.
When the virus get into body, within the first 4-5 days you can feel common flu kind of symptoms, when virus reaches your lungs, and attaches to lung cells, all of the sudden it starts killing the lungs cells.
So our immune system is so important in this stage. What can we do for our immune system. Get your vitamin C and D daily basis. Eat more fresh and green vegetables(wash them with white vinegar water), drink more fresh water, get fresh air for your house, sleep well, practice mild exercise such as yoga, walk in the open air, add more spices to your meals such as turmeric, ginger, garlic etc.
If you are suspicious about coronavirus, immediately contact public health care professionals(hospitals, paramedics, family doctor etc..) Get tested first. If you don't have any symptoms just try to be self quarantine yourself, such as don't direct contact to someone, try not to go out social, crowded places, keep yourself away from other people. 7 to 14 days is incubation time.
