‘Homeopathy can check SARS’
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, April 8
Dr Paramjit Singh Ranu, Member, Central Council of Homeopathy, Minister of Health and Family Welfare, here today said that the dreadful SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) could be prevented by homeopathic prophylaxis.

He said that the patient is in respiratory failure when normal gas pressure can not be maintained at rest. The general accepted definition of respiratory failure is PO2 of less than 8K Pa (60 mm Hg). In the viral pneumonia, the constitutional symptoms are more prominent with less frequent haemoptysis or cough with a mainly mucoid sputum. Even the pulse rate is relatively slow as compared to fever. Only physical signs are present which do not correlate with X-ray changes and the degree of consolidation is less extensive with rare or minimal pleural effusion.

The Homeopathic System of Medicine provides a very good remedy named as Carbo Vegetablis, also termed Oxygen Carrier which if used as prophylaxis can help the world in preventing SARS. Its a life saving drug where disintegration and imperfect oxidation is the keynote of the remedy.

A single dose of Carbo-Veg 200 should be repeated weekly where there is high rate of susceptibility till the epidemic phobia of SARS is not vanished from the country. Dr Ranu said, “In advanced cases, the life-saving drugs like Grindelia, Strophanthus, Antim-Tart, Strychnia-Phos and Veratrum-Viride can also be of utmost importance as per the symptomatology and condition of the patient”.
