Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic has developed a homeopathy protocol for prevention of Covid-19, which it has dispensed to 2 lakh people in the last one year, helping protect them from the dreaded pandemic. It is counted among the world’s most popular homeopathic prophylaxis protocols today, and the only one to have been validated in an evidence-based manner.
Dr. Kalyan Banerjee said, “The homeopathic prophylaxis protocol was developed by us even before the lockdown started. One of the largest datasets of 15,000 of our own patients from 18 countries was then analysed and a protective effect of the prophylaxis protocol was found. Senior doctors at our Clinic have been involved in the management of severe COVID-19 cases, including multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, and are managing more than 100 Covid patients daily. They have also administered the our protocol to Covid patients from all over the world exclusively or as an add-on.”
He added: “Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic homeopathy prophylaxis protocol against Covid-19 has been requested by patients and doctors from several hospitals of the world in advanced stages of the disease. We have developed protocols according to case severity and provided these to various organisations on their request. We, of course, encouraged compliance with all public health advisories at all times, no matter where in the world the patient was located.”
There is an old relationship of Dr. Banerjee’s Clinic with Bengaluru. It has more than 25,000 patients in the city. The Clinic at Delhi processes more than 600 telephone, video or email consultation requests from Bengaluru each month. Between 120-150 patients visit Delhi from Bengaluru every month to seek treatment at Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic. Said Dr. Kushal Banerjee from Dr. Kalyan Banerjee Clinic, who visits Bengaluru once a month to see patients: “A lacunae in the homeopathic management of life threatening and complicated cases has been highlighted by patients in Bengaluru. Almost a quarter of the patients we see from the city are seeking treatment for respiratory allergies. Others are suffering from skin allergies, auto-immune disorders, cancers, endocrinological disorders, musculoskeletal disorders or gynaecological disorders.”
In another significant development, Dr. Banerjee’s Clinic has released findings from ongoing retrospective observational studies it has been conducting involving data of thousands of its patients from all over India. These show the benefits of homeopathy interventions in the management of chronic kidney disease / kidney failure and hypothyroidism, two very common diseases which have no resolution in conventional medicine. Hypothyroidism imposes a heavy disease burden with 11% prevalence in India, higher than in developed nations. Lifelong hormone replacement therapy is the only option for patients. An average of 40 cases of hypothyroidism are treated daily at Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic. Measuring the levels of Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is a simple, objective criteria to assess the efficacy of treatment.
The hypothyroidism study at Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic analysed the records of 3,500 patients. Their Serum TSH readings were noted at every subsequent visit. Four visits of each patient were analysed with approximate follow-up period of 4 to 24 months. The study found that by the fourth visit, 35-52% of patients demonstrated a marked improvement in their serum TSH readings.
The data indicates that specific homeopathic medicines given to patients were able to improve the functioning of the thyroid gland, thereby bringing down the thyroid stimulating hormone readings. This has the potential of reducing – or entirely stopping – the dosage of thyroid hormone replacement in patients. This runs contrary to the understanding of the natural history
