In the most recent World Homeopathy Summit, a group of scientist from Hyderabad shares how they think that the cure for AIDS or HIV lies in a snake venom.
Here's the latest on HIV and AIDS cure, news, and updates.
Recently in the World Homeopathy Summit, a group of Indian researchers claimed that snake venom holds the key into defeating HIV.
The group of researchers was from Hyderabad, based on JSPS Government Homeopathic Medical College, and Indian Institute of Chemical Technology or (IICT). The snake vemon or Crotalus Horridus was seen to be able to stop the duplication of the virus in the human cell.
According to Professor Dr. Praveen Kumar (Department Head of Practice of Medicine at JSPS College), "Scientifically speaking, Crotalus Horridus has inhibited reverse transcriptase or RT, an enzyme which is utilized by viruses like HIV and Hepatitis-B to convert the viral RNA into viral DNA, so that they multiply into billions and wreck patients."
Dr. Praveen Kumar continued into saying that the homeopathic drug was able to act against HIV, "Our experiment entails that the homeopathic drug has the capacity to act on HIV, Hepatitis-B and so on. Our work has certainly opened the floodgates of advanced research and clinical testing.
Dr. Rajesh Shah (Organizing Secretary for Global Homeopathy Foundation) said, "For years, homeopathy has been adapting the process of converting snake venom and poison from deadly scorpions, spiders and wild bees into medicinal substances by transforming them into nano-particles that have proved safe and effective for patients."
Dr. Abhay Chaudhary (Director of Haffkine Institute) said, "As a virologist, I was surprised to learn that homeopathy also sources medicines from virus, bacteria and parasites, long before microbiology was fully developed."
Dr. Rajesh Shah added, "The summit should bring about a paradigm shift in the way the world looks at homeopathy and shock even some practicing homeopaths who believed that the medicines had some undetectable and unseen energy effect and acted as placebos."
