Distribute CAMPHOR-200 as a GE Preventive
Dr.Y.Bala Murali Krishna
Hyderabad, Nov 9(2012): Homoeopaths in Andhra Pradesh have today vowed to ward off the deadly gastroenteritis threatening to strike in the several parts of the state ravaged by unprecedented floods following the several cyclonic storm Neelam.
They also renewed their plea for opening the long awaited “State Epidemic Cell” with immediate effect so that the homoeopathic doctors could play their role in the distribution of preventive medicine when epidemics threaten to strike.
The AP Chapter of the apex Indian Institute of Homoeopathic Physicians(IIHP) have at the same time appealed to all homoeopaths under all banners to distribute the medicine “CAMPHOR-200” in the flood hit areas as a preventive medicine.
“Gastro Enteritis is likely to hit and it can be prevented through a homoeopathic medicine - CAMPHOR 200. It should be given once in a week for 3 successive weeks to prevent the disease which is common after the floods,” Dr. Dr.N.Srinivasa Rao, Member, National Advisory Board, IIHP, Hyderabad, told a press conference here today.
The IIHP had further demanded the state government to constitute a ‘Cabinet Sub-Committee” to redress the genuine grievances of homoeopaths to give boost to this school of medicine founded by German Physician Samuel Hahnemann that had taken deep roots across the world these days.
The doctors recalled the time-tested efficacy of homoeopathy as a “preventive and curative“ medicine to check alarming increase of Epidemic Diseases which needs establishment of a State Epidemic Cell:
The A.P. Homoeopaths had proved the efficacy of homoeopathic drugs in the prevention of deadly Japanese Encephalitis (Brain Fever) in the last decade, using the drugs trio – Belladonna, Calcarea Carb and Tuberculinum, popularly known as BCT, receiving acclaim all over the world, forcing other states in the country to emulate AP’s strategy.
But, unfortunately, after the epidemic was over, the Govt. conveniently ignored homoeopaths and did not make any effort to consolidate the strengths of homoeopathy in the prevention of other viral diseases like the Dengue, Chikun Gunya etc., which had been rising their ugly heads in several parts of the country.
“The tremendous potential of homoeopathy in the prevention of viral diseases has remained largely untapped by the medical profession. Now we are requesting the Govt. to establish a STATE EPIDEMIC CELL where homoeopaths are included and work out the strategy to prevent other viral disease,” Dr.Rao said.
It is the right time to use the services of homoeopaths in the country, particularly in AP’s flood affected areas of North Coastal Districts of Srikakulam, East and West Godavari and parts of Rayalaseema where the Gastro Enteritis is likely to strike, the IIHP added. //EOM//
