As dengue fever cases increase in the Guwahati state, AYUSH doctors advise that homeopathic remedies effectively treat and prevent the disease through immuno-modulation and without adverse effects, reports The Times of India.
The former deputy director of health services (homeo) and state programme officer of AYUSH, said, “For simple dengue fever, homeopathic medicine ‘eupotorium perfoliatum’ is given and for dengue haemorrhagic fever, Ipecac is prescribed. Apart from this, constitutional medicine and nosodes are among the best preventive medicines in homeopathy. We treat by looking at the symptoms of the patients and after the blood test, the treatment starts.”
He also said there were about 25 homeopathic remedies used in the treatment of dengue fever, from which the genus epidemicus – (the main treatment remedy) – is chosen according to individual response to infection and the virulence of the virus.
