LIGA Homeopathic Doctor Team Ebola Liberia Report

Update on LMHI Mission to West Africa

11th November 2014
Our team returned from the mission healthy and well, but with different results than we had intended.  Having arrive on 17 October, the four volunteers had received six days of introduction to national health authorities and instruction in Ebola safety protocol before proceeding to the Hospital in which they were supposed to work. But, somewhat surprisingly and due to a few diplomatic problems, they were not allowed to administer homeopathic remedies to the EVD patients as an adjunct to the WHO protocols.

Existing EVD patients, already treated under WHO protocols, had to be managed under that therapy without homeopathic intervention because our volunteers were not allowed to enter the ETU’s (Ebola Treatment Units).Thus, we were unable to apply homeopathy on Ebola patients during this mission.   Since the  incidence of Ebola Virus Disease was already declining in that district, and Liberia in general, no new patients with Ebola were admitted to that hospital during the volunteers’ stay, which lasted until 7 November 2014.
