Homeopathy for Infectious Diseases

Homeopathy has a long history of treating infectious diseases. During the 1918 flu epidemic, also known as the Spanish Flu, homeopathy was successful used, with a mortality rate of 1.05%, compared to the mortality rate of 30% of those using traditional medicines. Over 1, 500 cases of the 1918 flu were treated with homeopathy with only 15 deaths reported in the Washington DC area by the Homeopathic Medical Society of the District of Columbia. At the National Homeopathic Hospital, there was a 100% recovery rate, and in the 1,000 cases treated by homeopaths in Ohio, there were no fatalities. Homeopathy has proved useful in treating a wide variety of infectious diseases and is being used around the world to treat epidemics of infectious diseases.
