Homeopathy During Epidemics By Dr. Susanne Saltzman
Dr. Susanne Saltzman
For many years now, I have been teaching a course on homeopathy to medical students at New York Medical College. One of my classes describes the remarkable success homeopathic physicians had during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-19.
At the 77th annual convention of the American Institute of Homeopathy in Washington, DC, in 1921, Dr. T.A. McCann from Dayton, Ohio, reported that 24,000 cases treated allopathically (the conventional approach) had a mortality rate of 28 percent, while 26,000 cases of the Spanish flu treated homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05 percent. Results were published in the May 1921 issue of the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy, by W.A. Dewey, M.D., of Chicago.
Fortunately, homeopathic doctors like me throughout the world have found our medicines to be extremely effective during the current Covid pandemic as well. We are in the process of adding to a global database of cases so that we can continue gathering information about the homeopathic medicines that have been most effective in dealing with this disease.
However, because homeopathy treats the whole person and not just the disease, we have found that two people with the same disease may need two completely different homeopathic medicines based on his or her unique mental, emotional and physical symptoms.
We are also finding homeopathy to be successful in many post-Covid cases as well.
I feel honored to be part of a long line of physicians who have been using homeopathy for almost 200 years to safely and successfully alleviate many acute and chronic conditions.
