Don’t panic, just be alert!

The first thing I want to tell all is “Don’t Panic!”, before we talk about the Swine Flu virus and its probable treatment. There is a need to get alert.

What is Swine Flu infection?

Everyone knows about and may have suffered with influenza or flu infection. Flu is an infection caused by certain virus, which comes, stays for a few days and goes away. Similarly, Swine Flu is also a kind influenza virus. Here, the difference is that it can be more severe than regular flu infection.

Why is it called H1N1?

All virus have been named. H1N1 is a name given to the Swine flu virus. In the same group, there are some related virus-named as H1N2, H2N3, etc.

  • Diarrhea
  • Lack of appetite
  • Low energy

Where do you get it from?

Swine flu being a viral disease, it spreads from a person suffering with the same virus. It spreads through air, by sneezing and coughing, and touch of the affected patient. A sneeze or a cough of a patient can through millions of Swine flu virus in the air.

Congested places such as closes room, classroom, office, train, bus, mall, etc are sources of infection, as one infected person could spread it to many healthy patients.

Who is at higher risk?

Those who are already suffering with poor resistance.

Elderly people above 65 years

Pregnant female
HIV positive patients
Patients with heart, lung, liver or kidney disease
Patients who are on immunosuppressive medicines for other diseases
People with tremendous physical or mental stress
Patients on cortisone or chemotherapy

Why is so much of Panic about Swine flu?

Well, swine flu is now an pandemic, which means the entire world is at risk. Since the disease spread rapidly and it can have serious consequences, there is obviously threat to life.
It is important to get alert and extremely careful about:
Controlling the spread
Timely treatment

What happens to Swine flu patient, finally?

Swine flu infection, like most other viral infections, is likely to subside eventually; whether treated or not. However, some of the patients are at risk of turning into a serious medical condition called ARD (Acute Respiratory Distress syndrome), which may turn even fatal.

How to diagnose Swine flu?

The diagnosis test is done using nose and throat swab at the laboratory. Many labs are able to conduct this test for the cost of about USD 30. Some countries have control over the test. In India, as on today, only the government run hospitals are allowed to conduct the test.


Homeopathic treatment for Swine Flu

The doctors, conventional as well a the homeopathic, have limited experience so far about the treatment of Swine flu, as the infection is new to the humans.

However, on the basis of the nature of the disease and its pathophysiology, we can opine that homeopathic is likely to work well in the cases of Swine flu, since homeopathy has well established role in the treatment of many viral diseases.

We can recommend homeopathic medicines which are likely to help cases of Swine flu, which may work by enhancing the immune system. The medicines are also likely to work as preventive in some cases. However, such statements would always go with the disclaimer that no claims are being made for its cure or prevention.

Commonly indicated homeopathic medicines:

Depending on the individual symptoms of the patients, one or more of the medicines could be prescribed: Influenzinum, Gelsemium, Arsenic album, Rhus toxicodendron, Occilococcinum, etc are some of the common medicines. They can also be used as a part of probable preventive measure.


If you have recently visited a country or place/city under Swine flu attack or have met a person suffering from the infection, it is advisable to get a test done.


What to Do for Avoiding Swine Flu:

  • Always cover your mouth and nose while coughing and sneezing
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth frequently as there is always some virus on tabletops, telephones and computers
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Alcohol-based gel or foam hand sanitizers
  • Wear a well-fitted mask in public places
  • Drink loads of water and get enough sleep
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people
  • Stay away (3-feet distance) from people who have a respiratory infection
  • Use disposable tissues

Swine flu is not a food borne illness so there is no restriction on food and drinks.

Special Note:

Swine flu is most contagious in the initial five days. In the case of children, it can be contagious up to 10 days. If you have already got it: Please confine yourself to a room. Wearing a mask is a must and Keep yourself away from social gathering, your work place and other public places, to avoid spreading the infection to others.


What is the Real Reason Behind your Disease ?

Humans are prone to diseases, which is a fact that cannot be taken away. Even though there have been ground-breaking advances in the field of modern medicine about antibiotics and life sustaining drugs,  we are still not spending enough time in understanding the real reason behind the cause, genesis and evolution of diseases. We must study why an individual is more prone to certain kinds of diseases, when has his disease precipitated, what series of events have led to breakdown of the entire system. The answers to this can be found in the stress-diathesis model and by studying the PNEI (Psycho-Neuro-Endocrine-Immunological) axis.

The stress-diathesis model asserts that if the combination of the predisposition and the stress exceeds a threshold, the person will develop a disorder.


The diathesis, or predisposition, interacts with the subsequent stress response of an individual. Stress refers to a life event or series of events that disrupt a person’s psychological equilibrium and potentially serves as a catalyst to the development of a disorder. Thus, the diathesis–stress model serves to explore how biological or genetic traits (diatheses) interact with environmental influences (stressors) to produce disorders.

In Homoeopathy we study all these factors that have led to the person becoming ill and treat him at that level so that the effects of our medicines are permanent and long lasting. We also study the PNEI axis of a diseased person in detail before prescription of our medicines.

Simply speaking many researches over a period of time have strongly concluded that stress has negative effects on functioning of nerves, of the entire endocrine system (Thyroid, Ovary, and Pancreas) and on the immune system. A study in Harvard suggested that exam going students were more affected by a common virus than non-exam going students, the blood investigation of both sets of students showed a major suppression of immune cells in “stressed” exam going students.


Having said that, no man is without stress in life, one must go through their share of worries in life. The brain does not have a punching bag where it can remove these unresolved emotions. Think of the body as the canvas of an unsettled mind where the portrait is the disease. In homoeopathy we go the roots of the genesis of the disease. That is why our case taking involves such depth into the life of a person. Where we try and study the Bio-Psycho-Social factors of the disease. This is how we are trying to get to the root cause of the disease rather than a superficial understanding. No other system in the entire world goes to understand a man’s disease in such great depth. Once we are able to perceive this phenomenon in a man, we are able to give tailor-made individual medicine that is most suited to his genetic make-up, precipitating and maintaining factors of his disease.

We aim to heal the man completely rather than just temporarily removing his symptoms.

Growing Up On Homeopathy ! ! !

As a child, i was a mischievous one, i gave my mother and father a pretty rough time growing up, always playing, always falling and getting hurt, getting wet in the rains all the time, playing with fire crackers, getting skin cuts with kites and all sorts of problems. My Parents never scolded me or were never upset with this kind of behavior. In fact my father would  praise me for the bruises and marks on my body and  would tell me go and get some more.


This attitude of my parents made me a strong and confident child. I was never afraid of anything nor did anything effect me. This sort of a childhood environment and motivation made me into the person i am. i grew up to be a very adventurous person. from climbing to Everest base camp, scuba diving into the deepest oceans and riding across India to reach the highest motor able road in the Himalayas. My father who is also a well known and a reputed homeopath never gave me any vaccinations.  I was completely brought up on Homeopathy. I had never known the concept of vaccination as a child, i was surprised to find my friends visiting the clinic every year for their shots. One day out of curiosity i asked my father, why wasn’t  i given these shots like the rest of the kids, my father smiled and told me the answer to this question you will find once you grow up.

Growing up, i was never hospitalized, i had never taken any medicine for fever, i had never taken antibiotics, i used to fall in once a year. My immunity had been strong from day one of my life.  Meanwhile i used to see my friends fall ill at every change of weather, when they had cold drinks and ice-cream and had to be hospitalized all the time.  Till day i am healthy and fall ill only once a year lasting for 2-3 days.

I too grew up to be doctor and studied the concepts of innate immunity and acquired immunity, as parents all must thrive for inculcating acquired immunity in your child. Give him the freedom to play in dirt and in the monsoons, let him fall and make mistakes. We must stop becoming over protective of our children, teach them to  be independent as early as possible. We must realize that  the anxieties and insecurities are ours that are over protecting our children. The Pediatrician scares us and advises us  a large number of vaccinations. We must ask ourselves are all these vaccinations required. Weren’t children healthy before the advent and development of  vaccinations. Ask the doctor, will taking BCG vaccine completely prevent your child from getting TB ?. These are concerns that are growing among Indian parents now. Let the child recover by himself when he is ill. It is we who are weak that cannot see our child in fever.

In Homeopathy we believe in the same thing, we do not directly attack the bacteria and viruses, rather we push the bodies immune system get stronger and attack the bacteria on their own. This helps the body’s immunity to grow and acquire this specific immunity so that next time whenever this bacteria enters the system it will be able to fight it with ease. We want to make our patients stronger and independent of anyone and anything

Make your children independent

Homoeopathy and Sattva

Homoeopathy as a science of healing has all the means and ways to treat most of the diseases. I have witnessed the rapidity of relief of many diseases with Homoeopathic treatment. The treatment is not GENERAL but INDIVIDUAL which is the hallmark of the science. Each individual is different hence the treatment. The grasp of this phenomena and its application in most scientific way is what we do. The results are most convincing.

Second most important aspect to our approach is understanding “PSYCHE” and its relation to “SOMA”. Through years of interacting with patients and their family we have the firm grasp of origin as well as maintaining of individual disease. This gives us edge in guiding the entire family for meaningful insight for accepting and managing diseases.

Third aspect is scientific updates. We keep on updating our understanding in Etiopathology with latest in   Immunology, Allergies, and Endocrinology etc.
