Central Council For Research in Homeopathy conducted trial on the efficacy of Homoeopathic medicines in the prevention of viral infections, especially dengue and chikungunya fever.
A single dose of Eupatorium perfoliatum 30 (4 tablets of size 30 for adults and 2 tablets for children under 12) is recommended once a week. This dose should be repeated every week for 10 weeks. This medicine is not an alternative to the general hygiene measures for the prevention of mosquito breeding, so these measures should definitely be followed.
Guidelines for homoeopathic practitioners for the management and reporting of dengue and chikungunya cases are available at http://www.ccrhindia.nic.in
If you see any of the following dengue-related symptoms, visit your nearest doctor or healthcare centre immediately.
- Red wheal
- Body ache
- Joint pain
- Eye pain
