Swine Flu Panic amongst people & Selfish Pharmacies creating materialism in Homoeopathy – Come to Fight against False misconception
Many Homoeopathic pharmacists for their selfish tendency advertised as Influenzinum 200 as Preventive medicine for Swine Flu Epidemic.
Most worst thing that through sms they are making marketing about Influenzinum as Preventive for Swine Flu.
In Homoeopathy we give preventive medicine only on the basis of ‘Genus Epidemicus’. How these Pharmacist has reached ‘Influenzinum as Preventive medicine’ ?
As per Materia Medica not any Clinical Picture of Swine Flu matches with Influenzinum.
It is dangerous to give Nosode unless or until it is indicated.
We do not have good record of Healthy Proving of ‘Influenzinum’. Without an detail & systematic Healthy proving How it is considered as Homoeopathic Medicine.
Influenzinum can be good remedy only after Flu.
Even as a Nosode does it covers H1N1 virus strains ?
Then only on the name as Influenza Shall we give it ?
So its better we should use commonly used medicines like Gelsemium, Bryonia, Arsenic Album, Eupatorium as Preventive medicine as per locality & common clinical picture of viral illness.
Most serious things that one of the Homoeopathic Pharmacy in Andheri, Mumbai who sold 20,000 Dilution bottles of ‘Influenzinum’.
See,how leading Homoeopathic Laboratory for their selfishness they are marketing & materializing Homoeopathy which is strongly against Homoeopathic Laws as I believe.
Many big named Homeopaths are making advertising and marketing that Influenzinum or Oscilococcinum as preventive for Swine Flu.
By seeing this situation it is all going against Homoeopathic Laws & Organon.
Where is our so called CCH & CCRH ?
They must control on such things.
Its very good to promote Homoeopathy amongst General public. But it must be within our Homoeopathic Laws & Principles.
WE all must understand that Homoeopathy is based on Individualisation concept. In case of Epidemic diseases we must follow ‘Genus Epidemicus concept’.
Then why should we prescribe Influenzinum ?
Please think about it. Its my own opinion.
There is an very good article published. You can refer the article written by Melanie Grimes as “Important for Swine Flu Epidemic: Homeopathy Successfully Treated Flu Epidemic of 1918”
Its brief detail as follows
" Homeopathy was successful in treating the flu epidemic of 1918 and can provide answers to questions about the 2009 Swine Flu. Homeopathy can provide quick and inexpensive relief for symptoms of the flu.
mortality rate of people treated with traditional medicine and drugs was 30
percent, those treated by homeopathic physicians had mortality rate of 1.05
Of the fifteen hundred cases reported at the Homeopathic Medical Society of the District of Columbia there were only fifteen deaths. Recoveries in the National Homeopathic Hospital were 100%. In Ohio, of 1,000 cases of influenza, Dr. T. A. McCann, MD, Dayton, Ohio reported NO DEATHS.
homeopathic remedies were used to successfully treat the Spanish flu in 1918?
Gelsemium and Bryonia
According the Dr. Frank Wieland, MD, in Chicago, "(With) 8,000 workers we had only one death. Gelsemium was practically the only remedy used. We used no aspirin and no vaccines."
Homeopathy was 98% successful
in treating the Spanish flu epidemic in 1918?
Ohio reported that 24,000 cases of flu treated allopathically had a mortality rate of 28.2% while 26,000 cases of flu treated homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05% . In Connecticut, 6,602 cases were reported, with 55 deaths, less than 1%. Dr. Roberts, a physician on a troop ship during WWI, had 81 cases of flu on the way over to Europe. He reported, "All recovered and were landed. Every man received homeopathic treatment.
How do they know that a virus caused the flu epidemic of 1918, when the first virus was not isolated until 1933?
They don`t. In fact, many believe that the epidemic was actually a vaccine reaction.
When Army vaccinations became compulsory in 1911, the death rate from typhoid vaccination rose to the highest point in the history of the US Army. US Secretary of War Henry L Stimson reported that seven men dropped dead after being vaccinated. He also reported 63 deaths and 28,585 cases of hepatitis as a direct result of yellow fever vaccination during only six months of WW1. According to a report in the Irish Examiner, "The report of the Surgeon-General of the US Army shows that during 1917 there were admitted into the army hospitals 19,608 men suffering from anti-typhoid inoculation and vaccinia. When army doctors tried to suppress the symptoms of typhoid with a stronger vaccine, it caused a worse form of typhoid paratyphoid. But when they concocted an even stronger vaccine to suppress that one, they created an even worse disease Spanish flu."
Did the flu strain that caused the 1918 flu ever return?
The 1918 `Spanish Flu` was first reported in an American military, Camp Funston, Fort Riley, in troops preparing for WW1 and receiving 25 vaccinations. According to the CDC, the same flu strain appeared only one other time: in 1976. This was again at a US army base, Fort Dix, and again, was seen in recently vaccinated troops, and only in them. The virus has not appeared anywhere else.
Is homeopathy successful in treating the modern flu?
What can I do to prevent the flu?
Good food, clean living, rest and exercise are the basic ingredients.
There are certain nutrients that have been shown to help enhance the immune system, such as echinacea, vitamins C, E and beta carotene, zinc, and elderberries."

sir i did read your article. & i am with u.Sir i wanted to know that how can i become member of IHMA. Please do reply.thanks.
I also find ARS & EUP, to be of good help in fighting swine flu. But to find genus epidmicus is difficult as we dont get that many cases to handle.

That was a good attempt on your part. See how people with vested interest are trying to malign homoeopathy. I think there is definite plans to degarde homoeopathic system in the name of swine flu. We all know that the symptomatology of Influenzinum won't match with that of swine flu. In that case promoting influenzinum will only help to show the inefficacy of homoeopathic prophylaxis. And that is the ultimate goal of these malicious people. We homoeopaths should be aware of this plan and educate the people. Congratulations to you for the timely article. I am forwarding this article to all my friends and I hope all those who received this article will do the same

Dr Pawan has rightly and timely caution all of us, and I endorse the view that Influenzium is a wrong choice a nosode being used in large scale is dangerous .
This what Dr J.H.Clarke writes in the 'A Dictionary of Practical Materia medica ' has to say-- Give Ars alba to the person uneffected as preventive and Influ 30 to the person effected for treatment, out of 10 Materia medica I have , only clarke had given little information about this drug our regular materia-medica has nothing to write about this remedy.
Let the fratenity be serious about this.
your view and I too is of the opinion that all our Homoeopathic ----1.Colleges,
Hospitals-- our Organisations like IIHP, HMAI should awake.
Lot is expected from the CCH, CCRH, they need to be stimulated its the time they should wake up.
Government paid Homoeopaths should shoulder the responsibility to act unitedly.
Iam attaching a small write up on Swine flu which could be added to your present note, it gives little more information of what should be known and could be done.
I have been advocating and giving AZADARICHTHA INDICA 1X TABLETS a tablet a day for a week to increase the Immuntiy so that Swine flu could be restricted ,

Pawan S Chandak,
Thank you very much for your nice deliberations. I am a doctor of a professional house, where almost everybody got this mail and I have informed every one of them the same view which you have written. Thank you very much once again.
10) Dr M. A. Rao
This refers to a forwarded mail received from one of my friend regarding your opinion on Influenzenum. I fully and emphatically agree with you on your opinion. Presently Homoeopathy is in the hands of Homoeopathic Pharmacies and Manufacturers. They promise heaven to the panicky people. Where on this earth this unproved Influenzenum has come to the rescue of the helpless citizens of this country? It is sickening to see a fraud being committed on on our fellow country men. We are bringing this to the notice of Ayush.
For your information CCRH with a team of local Homoeopaths at Mumbai and Pune are camping in these cities for the last four days awaiting Govt.of Maharashtra permission for deciding Genus Epidemicus. Let us pray God that Maharashtra Govt. gives permission.

11) Dr Adil Chimthanwala, Nagpur
Epidemics have become the order of the day. Every year we are getting some viral epidemic or the other and I fully support this cause that drugs like Influenzum that have only been partially proved are the gimmicks of manufactures to earn money. When Gels - that is at least proved completely, is available, why do u require influenzum -just because of the matching name?
12) Dr Mansur Ali, Calicut, Kerala
Homeopathic Prophylaxis in Swine Flu
RAECH ( Rapid Action Epidemic Cell Homeopathy) by the Govt. of Kerala, after extensive study and discussion, decided that Ars. alb 30 is the best preventive medicine for swine flu for India.
This remedy should be administered at least for 5 days. Two tablets (medicated in 1 grain BT) of Ars. alb 30 morning and evening.
High temperature. Paroxysms incomplete, with marked exhaustion. Thin, watery, excoriating discharge. Nose feels stopped up. Sneezing without relief. Unable to lie down; fears suffocation. Air-passages constricted. Asthma worse midnight. Burning in chest. Suffocative catarrh. Cough worse after midnight; worse lying on back. Expectoration scanty, frothy. Darting pain through upper third of right lung. Wheezing respiration. Haemoptysis with pain between shoulders; burning heat all over. Cough dry, as from sulphur fumes; after drinking. Fear of death, prostration, thirst for sips of cold water.
13) Dr Sumit Mukerji,Delhi
I absolutely agree with you.It is really a question mark on CCH that they have not come forward and put their foot down against such malpractice.Most probably their members are also involved in this racket.I must congratulate you for your views.At least this is what I am explaining to my patients in Delhi.
14) Dr Nagender Upadhyay

I am doing my post graduation in REPERTORY at CALICUT HOMOEO MEDICAL COLLEGE KERALA.
I have presented an article on swine flu at www.similima.com.We found the preventive as ARS ALB for swine flu after repertorising the symptoms,we have informed RAECH about it and they have approved it.It is a very sad thing to note that homoeopaths are itself responsible for the destruction of homoeopathy.
17) Dr Mandipta Roy, West Bengal
I AM HAPPY TO LEARN OF YOUR VIEW, I DO BELIEVE THE CONCEPT OF INDIVIDUALIZATION FOR SELECTION OF HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINE........THANKS.
