Ebola virus disease

Ebola virus disease, Ebola haemorrhagic fever or simply Ebola, is a serious, usually fatal disease for which only Homeopathy has a cure / preventative.

The outbreak of the Ebola virus disease recently, affected mainly three countries in West Africa: Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. Around 8,300 cases and more than 4,000 deaths have been reported across these countries by the World Health Organization. This is the largest known outbreak of Ebola.

It is spreading rapidly worldwide, especially because people do not want to disclose that they have the disease, as they fear that they will be isolated.

What are the symptoms and what should I do if I think I'm infected?

A person infected with the Ebola virus will typically develop a fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, a sore throat and/or severe muscle weakness.

These symptoms start suddenly, between 2 and 21 days after becoming infected, but usually after five to seven days.

If you fall sick with the above symptoms within 21 days of coming back from Sierra Leone, Liberia or Guinea, you should stay at home and immediately ask for online homeopathic treatment (there are many wesites offering online homeopathic treatment) and explain that you have recently visited West Africa.

Homeopathy can cure any person suffering from the Ebola virus disease.

How does Ebola spread among people?

People can become infected with the Ebola virus if they come into contact with the blood, body fluids or organs of an infected person.

Most people are infected by taking care of other infected people, either by directly touching the victim's body or by cleaning up body fluids (blood, stools, urine or vomit) that carry the virus.

Who is at risk and how can we prevent its spread?

Anyone who takes care of an infected person or handles their blood or fluid samples is at risk of becoming infected. Hospital workers, people testing laboratory samples and family members are at greatest risk. 

Strict infection control procedures and wearing protective clothing minimises this risk – simply washing hands with soap and water can destroy the virus.

How is Ebola virus disease treated?

Homeopathy has a cure / preventative for the Ebola virus disease, although conventional medicine (allopathy) doesn't.

Conventionally, patients diagnosed with Ebola virus disease are placed in isolation in intensive care units, where their blood oxygen levels and blood pressure are maintained at the right level and their body organs supported, but they need not be isolated if they are improving with Homeopathic treatment.

Healthcare workers need to avoid contact with the bodily fluids of their infected patients by taking strict precautions.

How is it diagnosed?

It is difficult to know if a patient is infected with the Ebola virus in the early stages as symptoms like fever, headache and muscle pain are similar to those of many other diseases, but specialist infection clinicians will make expert judgements on what the most likely diagnosis is, based on the patient’s history, after which one should opt for Homeopathic treatment (if one is put in an isolation ward also, he/she can ask for access to Homeopathic treatment).

Only infectious when symptoms start

People infected with Ebola do not become infectious until they have developed symptoms like fever. The disease then progresses very rapidly. This means infectious people do not walk around spreading the disease for a long period.

It typically takes five to seven days for symptoms to develop after an infection, so there is time to identify people who may have been exposed, put them under surveillance and if they show symptoms, quarantine them.

Effective infection control procedures

In past outbreaks, infection control measures have been very effective in containing Ebola within the immediate area.

Training and awareness 

Frontline medical practitioners should be alert to Ebola in those returning from West Africa and other affected areas. 

Flight crew have been trained to respond quickly to any passengers who develop symptoms during a flight from West Africa. They should take measures to reduce transmission on board the plane. However, this event is very unlikely and so far, there have been no documented cases of people catching the disease simply by being in the same plane as an Ebola victim.
