Arsenic contamination of ground water is a huge problem in West Bengal, India, and Bangladesh, involving the water supply of millions of people. In an attempt to find help for the arsenic exposed people the authors have studied the results of taking Arsenicum album homeopathic remedy.
The authors studied mice that were arsenic intoxicated, in which some were given Arsenicum Album and some were not. Arsenicum Album-30 and Arsenicum Album-200 were given to different animals.
The treated and untreated mice were tested for enzymes of the blood and liver to evaluate the general level of toxicity of the mice. The results of the blood and liver testing were that both Arsenicum Album-30 and Arsenicum Album-200 reduced the level of arsenic toxicity when compared to untreated mice, and helped remove arsenic from the body.
CONCLUSION: Both Arsenicum Album-30 and Arsenicum Album-200 reduced arsenic toxicity compared to toxic controls not given Arsenicum Album. The authors believe that Arsenicum Album is a strong candidate for use in people whose ground water is contaminated by arsenic. Arsenicum Album reduces the toxicity and removes arsenic from the body.
