Uncertainty in primary level of prevention OF SWINE FLU

Demand for preventive medicine is enormously more from all quarters, but there was delay in selecting the Genus Epidemicus. Various homoeopaths gave different preventive medicines as shown above. This may be due to restrictions to see positive cases by health authorities. Even when symptoms were repertorised few remedies were coming, even this was also not taken into consideration. Mean while chemists exploited the situation as described above. Lastly on August 31, 2009 the Group of Experts (CCRH) inter-alia has recommended that homoeopathy medicine Arsenicum album could be taken as prophylactic medicine against Flu like illnesses, a senior health ministry official said. It has recommended one dose of Arsenicum album 30, daily on an empty stomach for three days. The dose should be repeated after one month by following the same schedule in case flu like conditions prevails in the area. Very few segments are following the above instructions. Social and preventive department of every homoeopathic college should take up this challenging work of primary level of prevention to save the desperate humanity who can be victims of said Epidemic.
