I recently wrote about the power of individualization in homeopathy, which distinguishes it from any other health modality and can offer tremendous results, if utilized well. It's worth highlighting a key point from that again, especially in light of COVID-19. Despite information you may have seen in social media groups or e-newsletter blasts being published about what remedy will help best, we need to continue looking at each case individually. It’s how homeopathy was established in the first place over 200 years ago, and will continue to produce successful outcomes in the future.
It’s also too early to tell what specific remedies will most help for people suffering COVID-19 symptoms. The North American Society of Homeopaths (NASH) recently wrote: “Keep in mind that patients in different stages of a disease have distinct symptom profiles and therefore require different remedies. It may also be that different remedies will be effective in certain regions and not in others. No one remedy is right for all patients in all stages. COVID-19 appears to have three distinct stages: 1) mild to moderate respiratory symptoms and fever, 2) pneumonia and respiratory distress, and 3) respiratory failure and collapse. Each stage will likely require a separate remedy or set of remedies.” We're learning a lot about this virus and it's pathogenesis, but we need more time and more data to be absolutely certain what remedy will help conclusively as a "genus epidemicus."
Therefore, it's vitally important to maintain constitutional homeopathic care with your board-certified homeopath through this pandemic. In doing so you will continue receiving the most optimal, individualized care from your practitioner who is dedicated to you and is most knowledgeable about your specific and unique needs.
In the meantime, continue following these prevention guidelines as set forth by the CDC. My clinic remains open to care for you and your family. If you would prefer to self-quarantine, please let me know ahead of your scheduled appointment time and I can supply you remote conferencing information so that we can meet via Telehealth.
If you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms or symptoms of COVID-19, which may present with fever, cough, shortness of breath, body aches, and/or unexplained fatigue, or have had any known exposure to the coronavirus, please stay home and message me about setting up a Telehealth appointment.
