Q. Please tell us what is “immunity”?

Immunity is derived from the Latin word Immunis which means exemption. It helps the body to defend itself against foreign invaders like viruses, fungus, bacteria, and parasites. There are 2 types of immunity systems known as Active and Passive. Active Immunity occurs when our immunity is protecting us from pathogens whereas Passive Immunity occurs when we are protected from a pathogen by immunity gained from somewhere else.

Vaccines contribute to active immunity by providing us with an immune response in a controlled way.

Q. What are the symptoms of a weak immune system?

● Recurrent long-lasting infections

● Weakness, tiredness, and fatigue 

● Gastric disturbances such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea 

● Unhealthy skin and nails

● Impairment in growth development

Q. How can Homeopathy help to improve the immune system?

For years Homeopathy has been repeatedly used for different epidemics to boost the immunity system. Dr Samuel Hahnemann AKA the founder of the Homoeopathic system of medicine had invented the term “Genus Epidemicus” to distinguish the remedy which would serve as prophylactic for the epidemics.

HOMEOPATHIC Prophylaxis works against Scarlet fever, Spanish flu, Dengue, Swine Flu, Leptospirosis, and others which proved to be beneficial for the society.

Q. What is the Homeopathic approach towards Covid-19 for boosting immunity?

In the case of a novel disease like COVID-19, no system of medicine has years of experience to justify the prevention or management taken. Therefore, Homeopathic remedies based on symptoms and patients must be used to avoid contracting the infection. With the Homeopathic approach, these remedies help in reducing the virulence of symptoms and promoting faster recovery. They take focus on weak immunity and strengthening their natural defences.
