Dr Aditya Kasariyans presents case reports of Covid-19 that occurred in Iran, and Dr. Rajan
Sankaran analyses this data to arrive at a genus epidemicus remedies. Based on the symptoms
described in the cases below, Camphora is considered as the key remedy for treatment and
prevention.

Part 1 – By Dr Aditya Kasariyans, Iran


Here in Iran, I have been involved in corona virus patients’ treatment since 22nd Feb 2020,
directly or indirectly (through the accounts of other colleagues, from different parts of the
country or the world).

None of the patients who were already on antiviral medications were/ will be persuaded to stop
their antivirals. The intention is to hasten the recovery in a smoother way with the least side
effects and to help improve quality of life in the patients affected and their families, in a more
natural way. Hence, to contribute to shortening the disease and decreasing the probability of
person to person transmission.

My first case was my physician friend who at that time had almost recovered from the disease
but helped much in gathering the initial symptoms; the main symptoms she presented were:

Case 1:

• General malaise and soreness all over
• Positive corona test
• Low grade fever; maximum rising to 38.5 degrees of Celsius
• Perspiration especially on the back and forehead
• Cold perspiration
• Chill especially on the first two days
• The intense need to lie down all the time without the energy to get up
• Desire for open air; except during the chill phase
• Dry coughs
• Slight dyspnoea when putting effort in doing physical activity
• Temporal headache


I have always had the privilege of being the student of very eminent homeopaths from India,
who always supported me in my journey of becoming a homeopath with their professional ideas.
This study specifically continues with intense collaboration, kind support and wisdom of my
teacher and mentor Dr. Rajan Sankaran from Mumbai, India.

The rubrics taken and analysis you can find below in the writing of Dr Rajan Sankaran. The
cases are taken meticulously with strict consideration of ethics. Most of our patients didn’t have
any previous experience with homeopathy. I have made sure to spend enough time with each
patient and his/ her family to explain the approach which homeopathy considers in these types of
cases.

We aligned our expectations and tried to answer the questions and doubts which inevitably rose
along the way. We had the privilege to build our research and treatment study on our patients’
trust, for which we are utterly grateful.

We faced major challenges within the course of this study. Most provinces in Iran do not have
direct access to homeopathic remedies. Hence, for almost all cases I provided the remedies from
my collection of remedies and all are and will be distributed for free.


The intention of this study is to shed a light and introduce a new perspective into understanding
epidemic cases, and Hahnemann’s instructions in dealing with such circumstances. We are
putting the utmost effort to improve our observations, understanding treatment approaches in the
cases we will encounter.

Within a few days I had two patients from the north of Iran which is one of the major sites of the
disease.

(The selected cases are arranged chronologically, from the earliest to the latest)

Case 2:

• 70 years old female

• A few days prior she started complaining of intense sleepiness
• An evening before she collapsed for the second time at home, she had brought her phone to her
daughter in law, showing telling her this is my bank card.
• Eyes were open but it seemed she is not understanding anything; she had to be addressed few
times before she would answer, as if you suddenly waking up from a deep daydreaming.
• Intense prostration, walking was so difficult; desired to lie down.
• Appetite significantly diminished
• She was found sitting with her head down due to intense prostration
• Fainted twice before being taken to the hospital

I got in touch with this patient at this stage where after a week of hospitalization her tachypnea
had resolved. She had started eating well. She was transferred out of ICU. I had prepared some
further questions to be asked when she was visited by her family. But despite the report of her
wellness, when the family had arrived to hospital, she was undergoing CPR. Apparently very
well and communicative a minute or two before sudden death.

Part 2 – By Dr. Rajan Sankaran, India

About ten days ago my former student and now colleague from Iran, Dr Aditya Kasariyans
approached me for some help in dealing with the spreading corona virus epidemic in her country.

As per the Hahnemannian guidelines in treating epidemics, I suggested that she collect
symptoms from actual patients either directly or through her colleagues and send me a list of the
symptoms and the course of the disease which are found in a majority of cases. She did so for 40
cases, including two whose cases she took herself in a homeopathic manner.

I list below the symptoms she sent and the course of disease observed.

From a detailed study of these facts, I came to 4 remedies: Ars, Camph , Carb-v and Verat.

A reference to the genius of the disease, its individuality: sudden collapse, cold sweat and a
relative absence of restlessness, led me to the remedy Camphor.


I asked her to administer the remedy Camphor in 1M to the 2 cases under her care. Within 24 hrs
she reported a significant improvement in the cases. Then she found more cases and sent me
more symptoms . I found these too corresponded with Camphor (see repertorisation chart 2 )

The next day she applied it to 3 more cases, one of them even without taking the symptoms. The
results in her words were ‘dramatic’. I asked her to give more patients the remedy and report.
The next day she reported very positive results from other cases 8 (pl see her writing above. ) .

I feel that I have some data to share with the profession:

Based on these findings I suggest Camphor as a possible genus epidemicus and to use it as a
treatment ( 1m in water every 3 hrs ) and prophylactic ( 1M in pills twice a day for 2 days)
*

One needs to be open to the fact that some of the patients will continue to have their own
symptoms in the epidemic and may respond better to their individual remedies if the genus
epidemicus is not effective.

*Note: Further investigation is needed to evaluate the effects on more cases and determine
whether other remedies may also be indicated.

Symptoms Gathered from Patients and Analysis

Nagging headache, forehead.

Fever low grade.

Perspiration upper body. Forehead cold.

Shivering, chills

Extreme prostration.

In cycles. Swinging.

Collapse, Sudden, sit, lie down, legs together, not falling. Sinking, SUDDEN COLLAPSE.

Sleepiness during/ before the fever

I want to lie down. Can’t even sit.

Desires cold drinks

Thirstless

Irritation in throat causing cough


Cold hands

Touch agg. Skin is sore.

Weakness is so great that they don’t want to change their position.

Respiratory distress but completely conscious.

No restlessness.

Camphor

Skin of the whole body painful. Camphora is always indicated when death threatens through
rapid depression of neural activity or of pulmonary or cardiac activity, e.g. in drowning. In such
situations of collapse it is on a par with Carbo Vegetabilis. Sensitive, slightest touch hurts. It is
used, as a rule, in prostration occurring suddenly and increasing rapidly.

Camphora ( Analysis From Plant Kingdom )

Camphora comes from the subclass Magnolidae, which has the theme of shutting yourself in and
walling off the outside world. You can see this from the following rubric:

Mind: DELUSIONS, imaginations; world; she has her own little, in which things are clear,
outside is uncertain. This seems to be the main idea in this epidemic with everyone retreating in
to their own world and the outside world seen as dangerous and uncertain.

Repertory chart 1 (Using MacRepertory)


 

Homeopathy for Coronavirus Covid-19 Infection 2
Repertory chart 2 (Using MacRepertory


 

Homeopathy for Coronavirus Covid-19 Infection 3
My suggestion:

Based on these findings I suggest Camphor as a possible genus epidemicus and to use it as a
treatment ( 1M in water every 3 hrs ) and prophylactic ( 1M in pills twice a day for 2 days )

The medicine I suggest is not a substitute to taking all possible precautions and in case of any
symptoms to get tested and take the treatment recommended by your doctor.

Further investigation is needed to evaluate the effects on more cases and whether other remedies
too may be indicated. I invite the experiences of my valued colleagues. Also we should try to
set up controlled clinical trials through official channels. I strongly urge my fellow homeopaths
to try to make this happen.

One also needs to be open to the fact that some of the patients will continue to have their own
symptoms in the epidemic and may respond better to their individual remedies if the genus
epidemicus is not effective.

Rajan Sankaran, MD (Hom), is reputed to be a clear and original thinker and is best known for
his path breaking concepts in Homoeopathy. His understanding of ‘disease as a delusion’
followed by his discovery of newer miasms, classification of diseased states into kingdoms and
the seven levels of experience, brought in much more clarity into understanding diseased states.
The Sensation method has now evolved into a more comprehensive and synergistic approach,
which strongly advocates to encompass and integrate the old, classical and traditional approaches
with the latest advances.

Dr. Sankaran heads ‘the other song—International Academy of Advanced Homoeopathy’, in
Mumbai. This academy primarily focuses on imparting advanced clinical training to students and
practitioners, integrated with a homoeopathic healing centre. Also he has his own personal clinic
at Juhu area of Mumbai, India. He is also the President of Synergy Homeopathic, which is

Can camphor 200 be used as prophylaxis?

this depends on the symptoms presented. Camphora has brought out in its
proving: (Hahnemann, Jahr)

— great coldness and sensitiveness to cold air.
– General coldness of the body
— shivering with tittering teeth
– weakness of the highest degree.
–Pulse weak, nearly imperceptible
Mood: great anxiety

Audits Iran

Here in Iran, I have been involved in corona virus patients’ treatment since 22nd Feb 2020,

Part 2 – By Dr. Rajan Sankaran, India

About ten days ago my former student and now colleague from Iran, Dr Aditya Kasariyans
approached me for some help in dealing with the spreading corona virus epidemic in her country.

As per the Hahnemannian guidelines in treating epidemics, I suggested that she collect
symptoms from actual patients either directly or through her colleagues and send me a list of the
symptoms and the course of the disease which are found in a majority of cases. She did so for 40
cases, including two whose cases she took herself in a homeopathic manner.

I list below the symptoms she sent and the course of disease observed.

From a detailed study of these facts, I came to 4 remedies: Ars, Camph , Carb-v and Verat.

A reference to the genius of the disease, its individuality: sudden collapse, cold sweat and a
relative absence of restlessness, led me to the remedy Camphor.

I asked her to administer the remedy Camphor in 1M to the 2 cases under her care. Within 24 hrs
she reported a significant improvement in the cases. Then she found more cases and sent me
more symptoms . I found these too corresponded with Camphor (see repertorisation chart 2 )

The next day she applied it to 3 more cases, one of them even without taking the symptoms. The
results in her words were ‘dramatic’. I asked her to give more patients the remedy and report.
The next day she reported very positive results from other cases 8 (pl see her writing above. ) .

I feel that I have some data to share with the profession:

Based on these findings I suggest Camphor as a possible genus epidemicus and to use it as a
treatment ( 1m in water every 3 hrs ) and prophylactic ( 1M in pills twice a day for 2 days)
*

One needs to be open to the fact that some of the patients will continue to have their own
symptoms in the epidemic and may respond better to their individual remedies if the genus
epidemicus is not effective.

*Note: Further investigation is needed to evaluate the effects on more cases and determine
whether other remedies may also be indicated.

Symptoms Gathered from Patients and Analysis

Nagging headache, forehead.

Fever low grade.


Perspiration upper body. Forehead cold.

Shivering, chills

Extreme prostration.

In cycles. Swinging.

Collapse, Sudden, sit, lie down, legs together, not falling. Sinking, SUDDEN COLLAPSE.

Sleepiness during/ before the fever

I want to lie down. Can’t even sit.

Desires cold drinks

Thirstless

Irritation in throat causing cough

Cold hands

Touch agg. Skin is sore.

Weakness is so great that they don’t want to change their position.

Respiratory distress but completely conscious.

No restlessness.

Camphor

Skin of the whole body painful. Camphora is always indicated when death threatens through
rapid depression of neural activity or of pulmonary or cardiac activity, e.g. in drowning. In such
situations of collapse it is on a par with Carbo Vegetabilis. Sensitive, slightest touch hurts. It is
used, as a rule, in prostration occurring suddenly and increasing rapidly.

Camphora ( Analysis From Plant Kingdom )

Camphora comes from the subclass Magnolidae, which has the theme of shutting yourself in and
walling off the outside world. You can see this from the following rubric:

Mind: DELUSIONS, imaginations; world; she has her own little, in which things are clear,
outside is uncertain. This seems to be the main idea in this epidemic with everyone retreating in
to their own world and the outside world seen as dangerous and uncertain.

My suggestion:

Based on these findings I suggest Camphor as a possible genus epidemicus and to use it as a
treatment ( 1M in water every 3 hrs ) and prophylactic ( 1M in pills twice a day for 2 days )

The medicine I suggest is not a substitute to taking all possible precautions and in case of any
symptoms to get tested and take the treatment recommended by your doctor.

Further investigation is needed to evaluate the effects on more cases and whether other remedies
too may be indicated. I invite the experiences of my valued colleagues. Also we should try to
set up controlled clinical trials through official channels. I strongly urge my fellow homeopaths
to try to make this happen.

One also needs to be open to the fact that some of the patients will continue to have their own
symptoms in the epidemic and may respond better to their individual remedies if the genus
epidemicus is not effective.

Rajan Sankaran, MD (Hom), is reputed to be a clear and original thinker and is best known for
his path breaking concepts in Homoeopathy. His understanding of ‘disease as a delusion’
followed by his discovery of newer miasms, classification of diseased states into kingdoms and
the seven levels of experience, brought in much more clarity into understanding diseased states.
The Sensation method has now evolved into a more comprehensive and synergistic approach,
which strongly advocates to encompass and integrate the old, classical and traditional approaches
with the latest advances.

Dr. Sankaran heads ‘the other song—International Academy of Advanced Homoeopathy’, in
Mumbai. This academy primarily focuses on imparting advanced clinical training to students and
practitioners, integrated with a homoeopathic healing centre. Also he has his own personal clinic

this depends on the symptoms presented. Camphora has brought out in its
proving: (Hahnemann, Jahr)

— great coldness and sensitiveness to cold air.
– General coldness of the body
— shivering with tittering teeth
– weakness of the highest degree.
–Pulse weak, nearly imperceptible
Mood: great anxiety
