Covid - Overview

At any given time, prevention is better than cure when it comes to any disease. COVID-19 has spread across all countries around the world and has affected millions of lives. Scientists around the world are in a race against the time trying to develop a vaccine. So, while taking precautions for coronavirus, we can all work on boosting our immunity with the help of homeopathy. Homeopathic medicine for immunity helps boost your immune system from within and protect against infections like coronavirus

Relationship between immunity and diseases

Immunity and diseases are two sides of the same coin. The immune system is our body's defense against infections. It attacks germs and helps keep us healthy. If you have low immunity, you are prone to illnesses and infections. E.g., though all children fall sick some time in their life, some are prone to infections more often than others. Have you wondered why? Why is your kid allergic to dust, while his classmates play all the outdoor games without any discomfort? Why is it that your child gets a frequent fever, while another barely misses school due to an illness? It’s the immune system that makes all the difference!

What is the best way to save yourself from a PANDEMIC

There is no effective vaccine for COVID-19 so far. Researchers are testing some available drugs to see if they are effective against the virus. Therefore, the best things you can do right now to fight this pandemic is:
practice good hygiene measures
maintain social distancing
boost your immunity


About 10 years ago, Andhra Pradesh was hit by Japanese encephalitis. The Government distributed about One Million Doses of Belladonna, a Homeopathic Drug to children. Not a single child was effected by Japanese encephalitis, after taking the Homeopathic Medicine. Homeopathic medicines have been extensively used for flu-like symptoms and in pandemics around the world, in the past. When the swine flu epidemic had hit us, over 9417 people were given free preventive homeopathic medicines for swine flu, and not even a single patient reported with the deadly disease. Gelsemium and Bryonia were the two homeopathic remedies that proved to be effective against the H1N1 strain. During the influenza epidemic of 1918, 26,795 cases were treated by homeopathic doctors with a mortality rate of 1.05%, while the average mortality rate with conventional treatment was 30%.

  • Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
