Natural Homeopathic Treatment for Ebola

Updated on October 24, 2014

Ebola Virus

Ebola, a hemorrhagic fever virus, is undoubtedly one of the most deadliest diseases that the world has ever seen. The question arises; can certain Homeopathic remedies help cure Ebola? We need to take into consideration the Homeopathic remedies which address hemorrhagic fevers in the search for treatments for Ebola.

Homeopathics have been used successfully in epidemics such as the Great Cholera Outbreak in Great Britain in 1854. The Royal London Homeopathic Hospital reported that 16% of its cholera patients died of the disease compared to 51% of cholera patients who died in the allopathic hospitals. Homeopathic remedies were very effective in the cholera outbreak. Today, Homeopathic remedies which are used for hemorrhagic fevers can be helpful in the Ebola outbreak.

Experimental Drugs

There are several experimental drugs which pharmaceutical companies are presently testing on rhesus monkeys. ZMapp is being developed and tested in a lab in Manitoba, Canada. The pharmaceutical companies Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. and LeafBio of San Diego and Defyrus Inc. from Toronto, Ontario are involved in the drug's development. The U.S. government and the Public Health Agency of Canada are also involved in the process. TKM-Ebola is being developed by Tekmira Pharmaceuticals in Vancouver, British Columbia. TKM-Ebola is funded by the U.S. Department of Defense.

Both drugs look promising. However, it can be several years before clinical trials can determine their safety and efficacy in the treatment of Ebola. For now, the emphasis in West Africa is on isolating the sick, tracing the contacts, rehydrating the sick, setting up tent-like clinics, and educating the populations on protocols regarding Ebola.

Ebola Outbreak in Africa

It is clear that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is not short-lived. The first Ebola outbreak in Zaire in 1976 was contained within 26 days and therefore was short-lived. The first outbreak baffled the international medical community. A mission hospital in Zaire with poor hygiene and unsterilized needles was responsible for the spread of the disease. The president of Zaire declared the region a quarantine zone. Eventually, the infected were isolated and those who had contact with them were monitored. In total, 318 people were infected and 280 people died which was 88% of the infected.

The death toll in West Africa has surpassed Zaire's death toll in 1976 by 15 fold. There are many reasons for this. The outbreak in Zaire was in a sparsely populated rural area. It was contained. The West African outbreak occurred in the cities and countryside; public institutions had been destroyed by civil wars; the health systems are lacking in medical professionals, hospitals and equipment; and there are poor living conditions for many. Also, global health agencies did not respond to the crisis quickly enough. The West Africans did not receive the aid and expertise that they needed to contain the spread of the disease.

Symptoms of Ebola

The symptoms are severe. There is fever, an extreme sore throat, difficulty swallowing, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, uncontrollable diarrhea, unbearable headaches, muscle and bone pains, expressionless face, bleeding through the eyes, nose, rectum and blood in the vomit, confusion, irritability, and exhaustion.

Homeopathic Remedies for Hemorrhagic Fevers

There are two Homeopathic remedies that have descriptions that closely resemble the symptoms of the Ebola disease. These are Crotalus Horridus and Bothrops.

Crotalus Horridus

This remedy has the following description:

Hemorrhages and fever, clouded perception, dull heavy occipital pain, hemorrhages from the eyes, vertigo, bleeding from the nose, tight, constriction and dark red throat, inability to retain anything, violent vomiting of food, vomiting of blood, constant nausea and vomiting, intestinal hemorrhage, blood oozes from rectum when standing or walking, cough with bloody expectoration.


This remedy has the following description:

Hemorrhagic conditions, septic states, great lassitude, hemorrhages from every orifice of the body, nervous trembling, eyes hemorrhage, face has besotted expression, throat red, dry constriction, swallowing difficult, black vomiting, bloody stools.

Ebola Nosode

Homeopathic nosodes are remedies which come from viral or bacterial cultures. The remedies are prepared in such a way that they carry the molecular imprint of the pathogen. Thus far, I know of no Ebola nosode which has been made available and approved by the FDA or Health Canada.


Homeopathic remedies are easy to dispense and they are easy to administer. A well chosen remedy can be extremely effective in addressing different types of diseases. I do not have any testimonials of people who have used the above remedies in the treatment of Ebola. I hope I never have to use these remedies in my practice. However, should Ebola mutate, Ebola virologists warn that the deadly virus could become airborne and the consequences would be a catastrophic global epidemic. Homeopathic remedies would be a viable choice for fighting such a scenario.

See interview with Dr. Sanders, a top Ebola virologist regarding Ebola possibly spreading via the air.
