Ebola and Enterovirus Anxiety

With Ebola and Enterovirus continuing to dominate news stories, contagious disease and the potential for global pandemics are a source of anxiety and worry for many.

I find myself reminiscing about my visits to Calcutta, India, to study with the homeopaths at the Prasanta Banerji Homeopathic Research Foundation Clinic. At the top of this blog I’ve posted a photo I took while I was in India. The crowds of people milling around that public square are typical of practically everywhere I visited in that great city.

Not only are there vast numbers of people crowded together in close quarters, but there is also great poverty compared to what we know here in the United States. A setting like this – crowded, poor, hot, humid and sometimes lacking the standards or hygiene and sanitation that we are accustomed to in the West – is the perfect breeding ground for the spread of contagion.

During my time observing cases at the Banerji Clinic, I personally observed, recorded and synthesized 5,528  cases. I’m not talking about cases recorded in books, studied in my hotel room or in an empty office space, I’m talking about living, breathing (sometimes coughing) people right in front of me where I sat next to the Calcutta homeopaths.

The clinic and research center was immaculately clean. It was scrubbed down daily. The home of the Banerjis was lovely, pristine and cared for, but the patients came from all walks of life and with all forms of illnesses, contagious, inherited and otherwise.

At first it was heartbreaking. Certainly I see suffering in the U.S. in my practice and in reports from my students from around the world, but this was different.

Each homeopath saw 100 cases per day, some brought in on stretchers, in ambulances or carried in by their families…but then it was clear that we had a job to do and that was to discover the remedy protocol for the patient at hand and move on to the next as efficiently as possible. There were always more to be treated. It was a matter of focus.

The lines outside the clinic were made up of patients from Calcutta, neighboring villages and often other countries such as Bouton and Pakistan. Even some from Europe and the U.S.

Patients were often pressed up against me. It was exciting, invigorating, heartwarming and also a little scary at times.

Look closely at this photo of Dr. Pratip Banerji, me and Dr. Raju Sharma. Do you see a library of Materia Medicas? No Books! The only book the good doctors refer to throughout the day is Dr. Oscar Boericke’s Materia Medica. Starting at the top from the Banerjis, these well-trained doctors have all the protocols memorized!

Well certainly they have an impressive library adjacent to the patient’s chambers, but the cumulative knowledge of more than 120 years is stored in their heads!

During the 6-7 weeks that my husband and I were in Calcutta each year for the last couple years, I was exposed to tuberculosis, leprosy, dengue fever and whooping cough (in fact my husband and I both contracted what was likely whooping cough during our second visit). I also got dysentery and another unknown infection.

(Don’t tell my father; he didn’t want me to go to Calcutta in the first place.) I observed cases of malaria, both acute and chronic, hepatitis and many other diseases.

Why did I take such a risk in traveling to India and putting myself in sometimes stuffy cramped proximity to so many sick people?

Because I have known since I began studying homeopathy some 28 years ago that the Indian homeopaths had information that I wanted to learn. I knew that the only way I was going to learn what I wanted for my family, clients, students, in fact, anyone who would listen, was to get there and be a part of it all.

I had confidence that my husband and I would be in good hands with my knowledge of homeopathy as well as the Doctors Banerji. After all, they have vast experience treating the diseases we would be exposed to. And equal to my faith in the Banerjis, I have confidence in homeopathy.

So to my husband and me, it didn’t feel like such a great risk.

However, that’s not how everyone in my life saw it. While I was there, I urged my father and mother to take Ignatia 200 for worry about us being so far away and in a clinic. It helped a lot. This is where I’ll start as my first suggestion.

Worry: For those consumed by fret over the current news stories, Ignatia 200, taken twice a day, has a reputation for easing the anxiety and helping one, as the 12 Steppers say, focus on what one can change and accept the things one cannot change.

And as a reminder of what I’ve posted in previous blogs, the protocols that have been reported by homeopaths in the past for Ebola and Enterovirus are as follows:

Ebola: I can’t say I’ve witnessed it, nor am I giving you advice, but I’ll share the protocol that homeopaths have documented in our repertories worldwide.

I have beside me right now my Homeopathic Clinical Repertory by Robin Murphy, N.D., open to the section on Clinical Practice, Infections, Ebola.

The remedies to consider are Arsenicum album, Baptisia, Cadmium sulph, Cantharis, Carbo vegetablis, China, Cinnibaris, Crotalus horridus, Lachesis, Mercurius cyanatus, Millefolium, Phosphorus, Sulphuric acid.

Note that the most important choice is Crotalus horridus because of its reputation as a preventative if an outbreak happens nearby. The method is to take Crotalus horridus 30, one dose daily, until the threat is out of the area. For more remedy ideas, see https://joettecalabrese.com/blog/bioterrorism-epidemics-knowing-homeopathy-can-help-make-world-less-scary-place/

EnterovirusKali iodatum 6C is the premier remedy that has been chosen by homeopaths, but for more ideas see https://joettecalabrese.com/blog/homeopathic-remedies-enterovirus-68/

There you have it.

A homeopathic approach to anxiety-provoking ills. Join me in owning knowledge that has aided humanity for well over 200 years.

Learn how to use this intelligent medical paradigm, then kiss your kids (or grandkids) and husband goodnight and know that homeopathy is the best medicine on earth for families.

Please pass on the good word to anyone this might help.

  1. Dave says:

    What does croatalus 30 do that would prevent one from catching a disease? Just curious…I notice that this one is not part of my top 100 remedy kit.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      “Like cures like” is the basis of the active mechanism in homeopathy. If you study Crotalus horridus you’ll find that it fits the symptomatic picture of Ebola very well. Read the nature of this medicine in a materia medica on line.

      There are likely 3000+ (perhaps more) homeopathic medicines that have been made over the years. Your homeopathy kit includes the top 50 or 100 most commonly used in households for common, not uncommon ills.

  2. Gerri says:

    What is the croatalus dose for children?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Homeopathic dosages are the same for an adult as a child.

  3. Laura says:

    Are any of the ebola or entovirus remedies contraindicated for pregnancy? How do I find out if they are?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      The remedies that are listed as having potential problems for pregnancy are Apis, Pulsatilla and Sepia in high potencies.

  4. Dave says:

    Is a potency of “30” the same as “30x” or “30c”

    Thanks!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I don’t offer specifics regarding c or x because I don’t know what is available to folks around the world. In most cases, 30 c and 30x are interchangeable.

  5. Rachel says:

    Can you take the meds for the Ebola and enterovirus together? I guess it’s the Crotalus horridus and Kali iodatum.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Not unless you have both illnesses.

  6. Sandi says:

    Hi Joette,
    Could you let us know if it is safe for a pregnant 31 yr old woman to use the remedies for the Entervirus and Ebola if ever needed.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      The remedies that are listed as having potential problems for pregnancy are Apis, Pulsatilla and Sepia in high potencies.

  7. Misty says:

    for a family of 4 (kids ages 8 and 10) and on limited income, what remedies are most important and how much to buy for a family of 4, when do you know when to start taking.. and preventative, I use young living oils and have bottles of thieves, immupower, a little of cistus and helycrisum, Thank you!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      You’d have to figure out how many pills are in a bottle of the brand you decide to use, how many doses you plan to give out and for how many days. I’d say a better way to buy remedies is to own a bottle or two of the those that are most important to you.

      I can’t say when folks would begin taking remedies for a specific illness as a preventative because we know so little about Ebola and our administration waffles daily. I would caution you that homeopathic remedies should not be used when unnecessary, since they are not herbs, but medicine. They need to be used judiciously.

  8. Amelia DSouza says:

    If you take the wrong medication or wrong potency will there be any bad effects ?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Yes, there can be ill effects if taken incorrectly. That’s why its important to know that the remedy choice is right on. Homeopathy is only relatively, not 100% safe. After all, it is medicine. Potency, frequency, length of use and rationale are important.

    Thanks very much, Joette! As always, your timing and delivery are right on point. 🙂
