Can homeopathy help in this current health crisis?









Homeopathic medicines have been used extensively for flu-like symptoms and in epidemics around the world.

A homeopath will select remedies based on an individual's unique symptoms. However, Gelsemium 30c and Bryonia 30c are commonly used for flu-like symptoms and have a long-established, traditional usage over many years.

As well as helping with physical symptoms, homeopathy can also help you and your family with feelings of anxiety, fear and stress - all of which are common at this extraordinary time.

The V-HAWK Study is led by a group of researchers at Anglia Ruskin University, University of York, Ulster University and Queen Mary University of London. The study team are conducting an online research study to provide the information we need to tackle the health challenges that the UK faces including COVID.

There is currently no known treatment for COVID-19 and our health systems are struggling. We need to understand how many people have COVID-19 and also what types of treatments are being used. This will help us identify those that are the most/ least effective for COVID-19.
To help gather this information we would be grateful if you would complete the survey in link angliaruskin.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/v_hawk


Homeopathic options can form one part of your approach to the current virus outbreak but should always be used alongside other measures.

If you have current symptoms or are concerned that you may have been exposed to coronavirus, it is important to call 111 to seek appropriate advice, in keeping with current NHS guidelines.

Supporting yourself

Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress. Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.




  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.

  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.

  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.

  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.

    It is natural to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry during and after a disaster. Everyone reacts differently, and your own feelings will change over time.
    Notice and accept how you feel. Taking care of your emotional health during an emergency will help you think clearly and react to the urgent needs to protect yourself and your family. Self-care during an emergency will help your long-term healing.

    Be aware that there may be rumours during a crisis, especially on social media. Always check your sources and turn to reliable sources of information like your local government authorities.
