Chikungunya – Update & Homeopathic view

World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Epidemic and pandemic alert and response (EPR) fact sheet details the latest condition of Chikungunya fever in South Asia. An excerpt of that is below and the complete doc can be read here.

“From February 2006 to 10 October 2006, the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia has reported 151 districts in 8 states/provinces of India affected by chikungunya fever (see below). The affected states are Andhra Pradesh, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala and Delhi. More than 1.25 million suspected cases have been reported from the country, which 752,245 were from Karnataka and 258,998 from Maharashtra provinces. In some areas reported attack rates have reached 45%. “

From the enormity and spread of Chikungunya, we all know it has become an unavoidable pain in the life of people in many cities in India. Although there are no vaccines from allopathic world, homeopathy appears to have some medicines that may help alleviate the effects. hpahy.com gives the following as the homeopathic treatment for Chikungunya.

“Homeopathy offers many medicines which may help in Chikungunya. These include medicines like Eupatorium-perf, Pyroginum, Rhus-tox, Cedron, Influenzinum, China, Arnica, Belladona, Bryonia etc. Many homeopaths consider Eupatorium perf. as a preventive medicine for Chikungunya. The most commonly suggested potency as prophylaxis is 200C of Eupatorium perf. Eupatorium Perfoliatum Q (tincture, 3 to 5 drop dose)will remove the debilitating joint pains and cut short the intensity and duration of the disease. Other potencies may be used according to the intensity of the case.”

Given the enormity of the epidemic and the hopelessness of the establishments. Prevention is better than cure. So below is the excerpt from WHO on prevention and control.

“No vaccine is available against this virus infection. Prevention is entirely dependent upon taking steps to avoid mosquito bites and elimination of mosquito breeding sites.

To avoid mosquito bites:

* Wear full sleeve clothes and long dresses to cover the limbs;

* Use mosquito coils, repellents and electric vapour mats during the daytime;

* Use mosquito nets – to protect babies, old people and others, who may rest during the day. The effectiveness of such nets can be improved by treating them with permethrin (pyrethroid insecticide). Curtains (cloth or bamboo) can also be treated with insecticide and hung at windows or doorways, to repel or kill mosquitoes.

* Mosquitoes become infected when they bite people who are sick with chikungunya. Mosquito nets and mosquito nets and mosquito coils will effectively prevent mosquitoes from biting sick people.

To prevent mosquito breeding

The Aedes mosquitoes that transmit chikungunya breed in a wide variety of manmade containers which are common around human dwellings. These containers collect rainwater, and include discarded tires, flowerpots, old oil drums, animal water troughs, water storage vessels, and plastic food containers. These breeding sites can be eliminated by

* Draining water from coolers, tanks, barrels, drums and buckets, etc.;

* Emptying coolers when not in use;

* Removing from the house all objects, e.g. plant saucers, etc. which have water collected in them

* Cooperating with the public health authorities in anti-mosquito measures.”
