Prescription

With no symptoms being present at the time of the consultation, only a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, I made a general ‘constitutional’ prescription for this man but the remedy did not reach him before he was hospitalised and quarantined on the following day. I have since heard that he has been discharged and is fully recovered.

Information on Case Prescriptions

For many homeopaths reading these cases, potential remedies will readily spring to mind.

That won’t be the case for those just starting their homeopathic journey but, unfortunately, we are unable to provide that information for them.

Regulatory bodies, in Australia at least, have legislated that homeopathic remedies cannot be presented in the public domain as being useful for COVID-19.

To do so would mean they would be perceived as ‘advertising’ and action taken even though the named remedies have only been presented in the context of information or cases.

This legislation was introduced to stop the spread of misinformation and people taking advantage of those seen as  gullible but it also has the short-sighted effect of suppressing qualified and valuable information for those who may need it most.

While the names of prescribed remedies in these cases can’t be provided, it is still permissible to discuss them within consultations. Knowing this, appointments can be made so that this information can be more freely discussed.

If this is something you would like to do, we strongly recommend that appointments be made with suitable practitioners who always qualify or reference the material they share with you so you can then validate it for yourself.

If you would like to discuss the matter further with us, our free support and information service is always available.
