I had written two articles prior to this one relating to the Yoga and its assistance taken to overcome COVID infection and the second paper which explained in detail the assistance of Homeopathy in the cure of COVID. The papers have been blogged on the web. However, recently I was exposed to a COVID+ person and the following transpired and the details given below is my first hand experience with the infection
1. Over the next two days there was great pain in the movement of the legs especially the ankles and there was intense paid in the palms while trying to open the hands and there was also sudden shooting up of the blood pressure. I immediately started taking the homeopathic medicine Arsenicum album 30 and after two doses (the doses separated by about two hours) the pulse rate stabilized and the pain in the head disappeared. The blood pressure also dropped. I continued with the medication and the pain in the body also gradually went away by the next day.
2. In addition to the above medication I was carrying on with the Deep Yogic breath under the system of Hatha Yoga and the oxygen absorption went up to the normal of 99 + in the oximeter.
3. The other developments have been that I have taken the following ayurvedic and homeopathic / biochemic medicines which help in the improvement of immunity within the human body and list them below
a. AMRUTH – one tablet in the morning and one tablet in the evening .
b. KABASURA KUDINEER – One tablet in the morning and one tablet in the evening after meals.
c. BIO-CHEMIC –
- Ferrum Phos 12x ) 4+4+4 tablets in lukewarm water once
- Calc. Phos. in the morning and one in the evening
- Kali Mur. 6x during the course of the infection and even later.
d. One symptom which was seen in most of the COVID patients as well as in my case was that the taste buds were affected as well as the smell for a few days. To overcome this development , and specially the appetite which was also affected the following medicines were given with quick relief and the medicines are –
all in the 30th potency. The appetite of the patient was improved and thereby the physical condition of the patient also improved. The patients have felt pain in the lower abdomen specially the right side with heaviness in the entire lower abdomen. In such a situation the patient needs to be given Calcarea Carb and it was found that the pain and discomfort reduced immediately by a good 50% or more within 24 hours and the condition continues to improve as you take the medicine till full recovery.
Further symptoms tend to surface and these relate to heavy breathing with rattling in bronchial tubes, heaviness in the head and with the development of these symptoms the patient needs to be given Bryonia immediately together with Antimonium Tartaricum 6 / 30 and you will find that the rattling cough and phlegm will dislodge and come out and the patient will find it easier to breathe. With the improvement in breathing the oxygen absorption in the human system also improves and the patient proceeds towards full recovery.
The one medicine which helps in the prevention and recovery of a patient affected with COVID virus is the medicine Camphor 1M and which should be taken in small doses on an alternate day basis and which means 5-6 globules at a time on alternate days. Taken over a period of time this medicine prevents and cures COVID virus. Camphor 1M was taken by me and the heaviness in breathing was immediately stopped and the breathing came back to normal. This was further supported by the Full Yogic breath and which helped in the full recovery. Where there is rattling in the bronchial tubes then Antimonium Tart in the 6th potency has been found to be highly beneficial in the clearing of the condition.
Under the circumstances it is essential to improve upon the immunity of each person and in the event a person was to be stated to be COVID positive then the above medicines could be taken under the advice of a good homeopathic practitioner. There is one aspect of COVID virus which has not been covered hereinabove and which is the dip in oxygen absorption in the blood which starts to dip to 92 and goes below that level. In my own case the deep breathing assisted me in keeping the oxygen level at 97-99 level through the yogic pranayama. However, in the case of one lady patient of about 67-68 years of age, was suffering from slight fever for about 3-4 days and it was advised that she be taken to hospital for admission and observation and treatment as advised by the doctor. As I was accompanying her she asked me if there any homeopathic remedy for increasing the oxygen level in the body and as I was carrying the medicine I immediately gave her just before we proceeded to the hospital. The name of the medicine is Aspidosperma Q 10 drops in water. When we reached the hospital the doctor took her temperature and the same was normal. The oxygen absorption level was indicating 97-98 which prior to this at home was indicating 92 in the new oxymeter which had been purchased by the lady. The doctor at the hospital suggested that she should be taken back home and kept under observation for she seemed to be almost normal. She was brought back home and seems to be better.
