Candida Albicans & Homeopathy

Candida albicans is an opportunistic pathogenic yeast that is part of the human gut flora. It is usually harmless but can become pathogenic in

immunocompromised individuals under a variety of conditions. An estimated 75% of systemic candida infections are from the Candida Albicans strain and a mortality rate of 40% has been reported.

This study illustrates how homeopathic remedies can be used successfully to inhibit the growth of Candida Albicans.

The following homeopathic remedies were used in the study: Acid benzoicum, Apis mellifica, Kali iodatum, Mezereum, Petroleum, Sulphur, Tellurium, Sulphur iodatum, Graphites, Sepia, Silicea and Thuja occidentalis in 30C and 200C potencies. Mezereum in 200 and 30 potency showed maximum inhibition of growth of Candida albicans followed by Kali iodatum 200 while Kali iodatum 30 and Petroleum 30 had minimum inhibition.

The Conclusion states:

"The results of these experiments support the concept of evidence based medicine depicting that homeopathic medicines not only work in invivo but are equally effective in invitro conditions having definite inhibitory activity against Candida Albicans.

These results will definitely clear the misconceptions that homeopathy is a placebo therapy..."
