Try Homoeopathy to cure Dengue

Despite all the technological marvels of modern medicine and preventive measures at a high cost, Sri Lanka appears to be losing the war against the stinging little terrorist the deadly dengue mosquito.

The Daily Mirror in a front page story said yesterday that with five deaths from dengue and 1,286 dengue cases being reported countrywide in the first 18 days of the year, doctors and health authorities are in a diagnostic quandary as to how to curb this epidemic which has now reached endemic proportions.

If western medicine or allopathy does not have an effective cure for this disease which is hitting mainly children these days, then the government and the Sri Lanka Medical Council need to seriously consider alternative methods.

Veteran Homeopathic consultant Joe de Livera, the Sri Lankan representative for Homoeopaths without borders, says the authorities concerned have a duty to use every possible means to prevent this terrible loss of life and suffering that dengue patients and their families undergo.

He says according to worldwide online research done by him, Dengue can be cured with the homeopathic remedy, Eupatorium Perfoliatum 200c in the wet dose. Hundreds of patients treated in this way have been cured and the western medical authorities can test the validity of this homoeopathic remedy. Doctors have admitted that their Pharmacopeia does not have any drug that could cure Dengue.

Some of those who have taken the homoeopathic medicine have informed Mr. De Livera that they had used the water in the recommended dosage which is just a teaspoonful taken thrice daily. It cured them. There are many cases where patients who were virtually dying had been cured after taking a few doses of this remedy.

Eupatorium Perfoliatum in the 200c potency has been used for centuries in other parts of the world wherever there is no prejudice against using homeopathic remedies to cure disease. In India it is used extensively and many scores of lives are being saved on a daily basis. It was used by Dr Imtiaz Latif at the request of the Colombo Municipality last year at its Homoeopathic Camps and many hundreds of patients were cured.

It is a matter of grave concern that in Sri Lanka there is a strong prejudice or fear against the use of homoeopathic remedies by the western medical practitioners.

Health rights activists must prevail on the medical profession and on our Government to save the lives of patients by using this remedy which is being offered free of charge.

The homoeopathic consultant is confident that Dengue can be eradicated in Sri Lanka if this remedy is used extensively in the hospitals as by doing so the virus that is carried by the Aedes Egyptii mosquito when it bites a patient suffering from Dengue and carries it to another whom it infects, can be eliminated.

We hope that even at this late stage some positive action will result from this plea that this homoeopathic remedy will be used by the authorities to eradicate dengue in Sri Lanka.
