Bryonia alba is a must- have remedy….

Last week I had already recommended the following remedies:
Gelsemium sempervirens, Bryonia alba, and Eupatorium perforatum.
Reports from homeopaths who are treating people with the virus indicate that Bryonia alba 30c is rising to the top as a first treatment option once symptoms develop.
If you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive or who has symptoms, take a dose of Bryonia alba 200c as a prophylactic.
The three remedies mentioned above are still the ones you want to have,
especially for mild infection.
For moderate infection when dry cough and fever are present:
Bryonia alba, Antimonium tartaricum, Arsenicum album, Phosphorus.
For serious infection when respiration is compromised,
get medical help and contact your homeopath.
A key symptom and emotional state of COVID-19 is fear and anxiety– thus the widespread panic. And the emotional picture for Bryonia has to do with anxiety distractableabout money and work.  The financial impact of this will be significant and long-lasting– the quarantines, necessary containment strategies, the disruption of so many aspects of our daily lives and capacity to work and earn a living.
  Remember that many viruses circulating in the world are corona viruses… That’s why this one is called a “novel” corona virus. It is really important right now to stay grounded and calm. Year after year we have responded to the dangers of the flu, and even this past winter many, many people were sick with a relentless 3-week virus that laid many of us low. Viruses are part of life. Global and personal stress make us more susceptible to illness. And keep in mind that the remedies named above work for many flus and respiratory illnesses, and it is a good idea to have them on hand.
Keep in mind that the 200c of homeopathic remedies are hard to find in stores. I recommend order the 200c from a homeopathic pharmacy such as Hahnemann Labs. It maybe possible to find the 200c on Amazon but they may be getting sold out.  Here are some other sources:  Washington Homeopathic: https://www.homeopathyworks.com/categories/products/single-remedies/medicated-pills.html  and Boiron: https://www.boironusa.com/catalog/single-medicines/
According to reports and analysis by homeopaths…
We now have more information about the specific symptoms of the virus, which helps us tailor remedy recommendations more precisely. The problem with this bryonia_alba_flower_leafvirus– besides its easy contagion — is that it can turn into a dangerous pneumonia.
Keep in mind that your first line of defense is always your constitutional remedy.
Most people who get COVID-19 will have mild symptoms, with no respiratory involvement. It seems that thus far people under 18 years of age are not particularly susceptible. People over 50 have more susceptibility and the vulnerability increases with each decade of age. If people have underlying respiratory conditions and other deep chronic conditions such as diabetes they are especially vulnerable to more serious infections of the virus.
There is consensus among practitioners of all kinds to be sensible and use basic anti-infection protocols — mainly handwashing.
Anxiety and panic contribute to low immunity! In addition to getting the recommended homeopathic remedies, I urge you to do everything you would normally do keep your immunity up:
  1. Get good sleep, eat well, and exercise
  2. Take Vitamin D3– many if not most of us in northern latitudes are depleted in D3, and it is a known anti-inflammatory.
  3. If you use herbs or supplements such as Echinacea, Sambucus, or Zinc when getting sick, go for it.
  4. If you do get sick with it, self-quarantine.
March 2020
The world is in a panic about the Coronavirus, and of course, there are reasons to be concerned. Stay calm — homeopathy has been effective in epidemics for a few hundred years. Read on for important information and some good remedies to have on hand.
Hearing reports from China, homeopaths there report that the symptoms of people who get the Coronavirus point towards Gelsemium sempervirens (first choice) and Bryonia alba or Eupatorium perforatum (as second choices).
All of these remedies are easily available in health food stores. A 30c potency is sufficient. Ideally, however, treatment should be tailored individually…
so call me!

According to homeopath Dana Ullman’s homeopathic research newsletter:

” Homeopathic treatment has had a long history of success in treating people suffering from various viral infections. Oscillococcinum is helpful for the common flu virus and four controlled clinical studies have confirmed its efficacy. The many successes from the homeopathic treatment of the 1918 flu epidemic provides additional support for the efficacy of homeopathic medicines…
The worst problems occur when people get a viral infection and then use fever-reducing drugs, such as aspirin or acetaminophen. Because fever is an important defense of the body, suppressing fever can be dangerous.
Ullman also writes:
” …– No deaths occurred in children aged 9 years and younger, but cases in those aged 70 to 79 years had an 8% fatality rate and those aged 80 years and older had a fatality rate of 14.8%.. “
