Homeopathic Genus Epidemicus: Coronavirus 2019

Homeopathy is  based on the principle of   “like cures like” meaning a medicine that causes a sickness in a well person will be the indicated remedy to stimulate healing in a sick person when the symptoms match – mentally, emotionally, physically and in the general modalities.

The action of the remedy when given to a sick person matching its state will stimulate the vital force of the person to finish getting well.

Homeopathic remedies have “personalities” or specific characteristic actions.  When these characteristic actions are matched with the generals, or modalities, of the remedy fitting the experience of the sick person, wellness ensues.

Homeopathy can be amazing when used acutely.  However, Homeopathic Remedies are medicines and must be respected as such.  One must follow principles when used:

  • If the state of the acute sickness is obvious:  mentally and physically then you can dose the remedy every 15 minutes for 3 doses maximum.
  • One pellet in a glass of water stirred 10 times.  One sip is one dose.
  • If the remedy does not help after 2-3 doses in an acute state, don’t repeat. It is the wrong remedy.
  • When there is improvement, do not repeat dosing the remedy.
  • Repeat the remedy only when there has been initial improvement and then an apparent relapse.
  • Less is better.  When in doubt don’t repeat the remedy.
  • Mint may antidote the remedy so avoid mints while using.
