Researchers said at a World Homeopathy Summit in New Delhi that Homeopathic medicine made from venom of snake can arrest spread of HIV.
Research by doctors of Hyderabad-based JSPS Government Homeopathic Medical College and Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT) has positively shown that a homeopathic medicine prepared from Rattle snake venom, Crotalus Horridus, can arrest the multiplication of HIV.
The Central Council for Research in Homeopathy (CCRH), a government body under AYUSH, partnering with Global Homeopathy Foundation organised the two-day summit where scientists and practitioners from India and abroad took part. Dr Praveen Kumar, Head of Department of Practice of Medicine at JSPS College says, Transcriptase which is an enzyme utilised by viruses like HIV and Hepatitis-B to convert the viral RNA into viral DNA so that they multiply into billions, is inhibited by the Homeopathic medicine Crotallus Horridus.
