Groundwater in numerous parts of the world is contaminated by arsenic, and populations too impoverished to live elsewhere are slowly poisoned by it. Hundreds of millions of people are affected, some to the point of death.
Researchers concerned about this problem have shown that the ‘detoxing’ effect of potentised arsenic is of help to these affected communities.
In two trials from West Bengal, arsenic-toxic people were given homeopathic arsenic (known by its Latin name, Arsenicum album). Over the following days and weeks they excreted higher levels of arsenic in their urine and their blood arsenic levels and other toxicity biomarkers dropped.
The researchers also reported that the arsenic therapy, “…improved considerably the overall physical strength, appetite and food digestion, and also mental cheerfulness in these subjects with a general feeling of better health. Even within 2 months, some volunteers with severe skin complaints started showing some amelioration of their symptoms.”
These results demonstrate a simple and inexpensive method for detoxing the growing number people affected by this problem. The proviso is that arsenic poisoning cannot be completely prevented with homeopathy as long as the inciting cause continues – only ameliorated. Clean drinking water is needed for ongoing health but homeopathic arsenic provides a simple short-term strategy for dealing with the health problems of those with arsenic toxicity.
