‘Prince Charles cured of Covid-19 through ayurveda-homeopathy treatment’

Britain’s Prince Charles was cured of Covid-19 following a treatment combination of Ayurveda and homeopathy, Indian AYUSH minister Shripad Naik said, referring to a claim by a Bangalore-based holistic treatment centre.

“I got a call from Dr. (Isaac) Mathai, who runs the SOUKYA ayurveda resort in Bengaluru. He told me that his treatment of Prince Charles through ayurveda and homeopathy has been successful,” Naik told IANS.

Heir-to-the-throne Charles, 71, came out of self-isolation on Monday and said in a video address that he was suffering “luckily ... relatively mild symptoms" and although he had recovered, he was still in a state of social distance and general isolation.

Naik said the medical formulation used by Dr Issac Mathai will be scrutinised by a group of scientists. The ministry has set up a channel to scientifically study the suggestions and proposals of AYUSH practitioners, institutes and associations. “..we need to support our technique with scientific claims so that it can be used widely,” he said.

When contacted, Dr Issac Mathai of Bangalore-based Soukya International Holistic Health Centre said he had informed the treatment method to the AYUSH ministry. “I can’t disclose anything more to media at this stage,” he said.

Charles and his wife Camilla Parkar-Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall, had in November last travelled to Bangalore to avail integrated medicinal therapy at Soukya and were having regular consultations with the experts.

The royal couple was tested for the disease on March 23. While Prince Charles tested positive for the deadly virus, his wife Camilla tested negative for virus presence. However, both were self-isolating separately in Balmoral estate in Scotland.
