homoeopathy, nosode, antibiotic resistance, human health


Homoeopathy is a system of medicine based on the law of similars “let like be cured by like”. This means that any substance with the capacity of producing disease in its crude state has the capacity to treat a similar disease if taken in a very small dose. Homeopathic Nosodes are homoeopathic remedies sourced from diseased materials and organisms. Homoeopathic nosodes may be used to treat and prevent infectious and non-infectious diseases. The incidence of infectious diseases epidemics is now occurring more often around the world. The common public threat includes the emergence of antibiotic resistance which is increasing globally. Contributing factors of this emergence are linked to underlying biological, and environmental issues, lifestyle changes, misuse, and overprescribing of antibiotics. Despite strengthening health infrastructure, every epidemic and multi-drug resistance bacterium poses a challenge to the government, policymakers, health professionals, and the whole population. This article will review data available on homoeopathic nosodes, as well as present evidence that is available to support the use of homoeopathic nosodes in disease prevention and treatment. It also highlights several clinical trials and in vitro studies on the use of homoeopathy to target health issues that have the potential to harm public health and possibly assist in reducing healthcare costs.
