Its analysis shows that treating patients with Anas barbariae lowers costs for the NHS. Data from a single center from 2002 to 2011, 455 patients who suffered from respiratory diseases analysed as published on NCBI.

Can Homeopathy combat corona virus infection? Two independent studies from credible institutions provide credence to theory
A study by 3 scientists at NCBI
(ncbi.nlm.nih.gov ref Article: PMC7272237) 3 scientists from Greece argue that homeopathic intervention could be immediate and very helpful for the patient. They contend that while established medicine has to wait until the cause for the pathology is found, whereas in homeopathy we take into consideration the response of the organism to the causative factor (the totality of the symptoms) in order to start the treatment. Their study offers a logical structure and benefits of homeopathy as a therapeutic system suitable to cope with this pandemic
Using mathematical equations they deduce that dynamics of the pathogenic substance and the dynamics of the pathogenic factor are interrelated with an affine transformation. The study concludes that for the respiratory and systemic symptoms exhibited by the infected patient, professional homeopathic physicians could use dilutions (homeopathic ultra – high diluted succussed solution products) in the early stages of pathology such as Arcenicum Album or Aconitum napellus or Eupatorium perfoliatum or Gelsemium or Ipecacuana. In the later stages Bryonia or Phosphorus as the main drugs, and in the final stages Antimonium Tartaricum or Baptisia or Camphor Officinalis was given
Italian MDs Study as summarized by Dana Ullman (MPH, CCH)
As per a study initiative by SIMO-Italian Society of Homeopathic Medicine in in January 2020 a working group of homeopathic physicians and independent researchers studied 50 corona cases under homeopathic treatment in Italy . In each individual case only one single-component homeopathic medicinal product had been diagnosed and prescribed at a time with only one potency, chosen individually according to the symptoms presented. During the same homeopathic treatment a single medicine (50% of cases) was used, i.e. a sequence of 2 to 6 different medicines and specifically: 2 remedies (32%), 3 remedies (10%), 6 remedies (4%), 4 remedies (2%), 5 remedies (2%). The study forun no adverse events were observed during homeopathic treatments. An overall recovery of patients at resolution of specific symptoms has been commonly observed. The hospitalization rate in this group of 50 patients treated homeopathically for COVID-19 was 0.
Dr.Rajan Sankaran and his recommendations on Corona Virus Infection
Dr. Sankaran a world famous homeopath and a Gold Medalist from the Bombay Homeopathic Medical College has backed Camphor 1M as a potential medicine for COVID-19 on the basis of his research done. As per Rajiv Bajaj (a well know industrialist as quoted in BusinessToday magazine) Dr.Sankaran got access to many COVID-19 patients in countries like Iran, Nepal, Romania, Bolivia, Italy, France and Netherlands and treated them successfully. In the below video he is seen explaining this
In this video Mr. Rajiv Bajaj MD of Bajaj Auto talks of how homeopathy can help build herd immunity against COVID19. He says it is important to try out homeopathy as Vaccination against the epidemic is not available for at least next 1 year. Video courtesy – Aajtak
