Topic of Immunity may have never been as pertinent to the our modern times than the current pandemic. While governments are scrambling to dole out a vaccine that will bypass all safety standards, libertarian groups are calling this all a hoax and screaming deeper conspiracy. Where does one find sanity and security? The deaths around us are real. The inconveniences by authoritarian imposition are policy driven that tends to overlook many fundamental aspects of free society. This is a time we need to reflect inward.

The developer of the world’s first successful polio vaccine, virologist Jonas Salk had opined that there are 2 primary ways to treating illnesses. Therapeutic techniques that directly impact specific symptoms and there are methods to stimulate the body’s own immune and defense system.

Conventional medicine is guided by the former, of controlling (suppressing) symptoms while as natural therapies primarily aim to improve man’s innate defense system by fortifying IMMUNITY.

Agreed, symptomatic treatment provides immediate relief in most cases, but is often short-lived and requires higher subsequent doses of pharmaceutical agents to achieve ‘control of symptoms’.
We see elimination of symptoms, but not the elimination of recurrence.

Homeopathy among other natural therapies has a proven track record evident by various studies, to improve immune responses by employing highly individualized remedies that prevents recurrence of chronic complaints.

Homeopathic remedies act ads immune-modulating agents, where they can increase immunity (pediatric cases of frequent ear infections, my personal experience of successfully treating HIV positive patients for tuberculosis and improving quality of life and preventing opportunistic infections during my post grad days in Mumbai). At the same time Homeopathic treatments help modify immune response in autoimmune diseases (Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, autoimmune thyroiditis, etc).

So ask me how Homeopathy can help, as each individual will need a unique treatment plan. There are no set protocols as we are all different and one of a kind.
Let’s spread immunity, and stop spreading conspiracies, fear , dissent and above all, the coronavirus. Stay safe. Practice good hygiene, and nourish well!
