Chikungunya

Überträger: Aedes albopictus

Während der Chikungunya-Epidemie, die in den Jahren 2007 bis 2009 in Teilen Süd- und Ost-Indiens herrschte, wurden mehr als eine Million Fälle mit einer Einzel-Dosis von Polyp-p. D 1000 von uns selbst und unseren Studenten vollkommen und dauerhaft geheilt.

Die Erfolgsquote lag bei 97%. Wir bezeichnen dieses Mittel daher als 'Simile' für Chikungunya. Wie haben wir dieses Heilmittel gefunden? Chikungunya beginnt mit  Fieber, Schüttelfrost und Gelenkschmerzen. Viele Patienten mussten wegen der lähmenden Schmerzen zur Toilette kriechen.

Ihre Gesichter wirkten "bedrückt". (Calvin B. Knerr - GEIST, GEMÜT und STIMMUNG - bedrückt, bei Wechselfieber: Polyp-p.). Obwohl Chikungunya nicht dasselbe wie Wechselfieber ist, ist das die nächstliegende Rubrik, die wir für das Aussehen von Gesichtern von Chikungunya-Opfern haben. (Wechselfieber: Malaria oder eine andere Krankheit, bei der Fieber und Schüttelfrost auftritt).

During the years 2006 - 2008, almost all homoeopath practitioners had been giving different remedies for chikungunya disease (mainly Rhus-t. and Eup-per.) to be taken for days and weeks with little relief.

Polyp-p. C 10000 is almost a specific for chikungunya and with this remedy GIVEN IN ONE SINGLE DOSE, my students had cured many chikungunya victims during the years 2006 to 2008. (Success: more than 97%).

Disease begins with fever, shivering and joint pains. Many patients had to crawl for going to the toilet etc. because of crippling joint pains. Their faces were “gloomy.”

(Calvin B. Knerr’s Repertory - MIND AND DISPOSITION - Gloomy, in ague: Polyp-p.) (ague: malaria or another illness involving fever and shivering).

 

Chikungunya (= Chicken Guinea) is a form of viral fever caused by an alphavirus that is spread by mosquito bites from the Aedes aegypti, though recent research by the Pasteur Institute in Paris claims

the virus has suffered a mutation that enables it to be transmitted by Aedes albopictus (= Tiger mosquito). This was the cause of the actual plague in the Indian Ocean and a threat to the mediterranean coast at present.

The name is derived from the Makonde word meaning "that which bends up" in reference to the stooped posture developed as a result of the arthritic symptoms of the disease.

Alphavirus that is spread by mosquito bites from the Aedes aegypti and Aedes Albopictus mosquitos.

Self limiting febrile viral disease; characterized by arthralgia or arthritis typically in the knee, ankle and small joints of the extremities, high fever, followed by a maculopapular rash; buccal and palatal enanthema can occur; nausea and vomiting may occur; mild haemorrhaging may be present (child); inapperent infections are common, immunity is long lasting

Found in Africa, India, south east Asia and the Philippines

Humans, mammals (primates), birds

 

The primary symptoms of Chikungunya include -

          Joints pain

·         Fever, up to 104° which lasts for 3 - 5 days

·         Headache

·         Swelling in joints

·         Chills

·         Nausea

·         Muscle pain

·         Vomiting

·         Redness of eyes or conjunctivitis

·         Photophobia

·         Weakness

·         Fatigue

·         Haemorrhage

·         Rashes on skin

.         Fever which can reach 39° C (= 102.2° F)

    A petechial or maculopapular rash usually involving the limbs and trunk

    Arthralgia (bodyache) or arthritis affecting multiple joints which can be debilitating. The joint pains can be severe and even crippling.

There can also be headache, conjunctival infection and slight photophobia. Fever typically lasts for two days and abruptly comes down, however joint pain, intense headache, insomnia and an extreme degree of prostration lasts or a variable period, usually for about 5 - 7 days.

 

Dermatological manifestations observed in a recent outbreak of Chikungunya fever in Southern India includes the following:

    Maculopapular rash

    Nasal blotchy erythema

    Freckle-like pigmentation over centro-facial area

    Flagellate pigmentation on face and extremities

    Lichenoid eruption and hyperpigmentation in photodistributed areas

    Multiple aphthous-like ulcers over scrotum, crural areas and axillae.

    Lympoedema in acral distribution (bilateral/unilateral)             

    Multiple ecchymotic spots (Children)

    Vesiculobullous lesions (infants)

    Subungual hemorrhage

 

Diagnosis:

    Detection of antigens or antibody to the agent in the blood (serology)

    ELISA is available

    An IgM capture ELISA is necessary to distinguish the disease from dengue fever.

 

Homeopathy offers many medicines which may help in Chikungunya. These include medicines like Eupat-per. Pyrog. Rhus-t. Cedr. Influ. China, Arn. Bell. Bry. Led. Ruta. etc. Many homeopaths consider Eupat-per. as a preventive medicine for Chikungunya. The most commonly suggested potency as prophylaxis is c 200 of Eupat-per. Eupat-per. Q (tincture, 3 to 5 drop dose) will remove the debilitating joint pains and cut short the intensity and duration of the disease. Other potencies may be used according to the intensity of the case.

[Krishnamurti]

Polyp-p. C 10.000 is almost a specific for Chikungunya given in one single dose. My students cured many Chikungunya victims during the years 2006 to 2008 success rate > than 97%.

Conventional treatment:

No vaccine or specific antiviral treatment for chikungunya fever is available. Treatment is symptomatic: rest, fluids, and ibuprofen, naproxen, acetaminophen, or paracetamol may relieve symptoms of fever and aching. Aspirin should be avoided

Infected persons should be protected from further mosquito exposure (staying indoors +/o. under a mosquito net during the first few days of illness) so that they can't contribute to the transmission cycle.

[Dr. Manish Bhatia]

Chikungunya – HOW DIAGNOSIS IS DONE?

    Detection of antigens or antibody to the agent in the blood (serology)

Chikungunya – HOMEOPATHY TREATMENT & HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES

 

Homeopathy: Eupat-p. Pyrog. Rhus-t. Cedr. Infl. Chin. Arn. Bell. Bry. Ars.

Many homeopaths consider Eupat-per. as a preventive medicine for Chikungunya. The most commonly suggested potency as prophylaxis is 200C is said to remove the debilitating joint pains and cut short the intensity and duration of the disease. Other potencies may be used according to the intensity of the case. If prostration is very pronounced, Ars. and Chin. are important. Severe headache, Chin. Cedr. and Bell. Headache and prostration found together: Chin. is the remedy that is likely to help. Please consult a professional homeopath to find the most suitable remedy for a given case.

 

CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT

No vaccine or specific antiviral treatment is available. Treatment symptomatic: rest, fluids and ibuprofen, naproxen, acetaminophen, or paracetamol may relieve symptoms of fever and aching.

Aspirin should be avoided

Infected persons should be protected from further mosquito exposure (staying indoors +/o. under a mosquito net during the first few days of illness) so they can’t contribute to the transmission cycle.
