Antibacterial activity of silicea, calc carb, sulphur on gram negative bacteria e.coli

Increase in use of antibiotics in recent days have resulted in development of drug-resistant bacteria, which ultimately can be life threatening. As an alternative solution to this problem, we have used homeopathic medicines for our study of antibacterial activity of E.coli, a gram negative bacteria. Activities of Silicea, Sulphur and Calcarea carb (Calc carb) at the potency 6 C, 30 C, and 200 C were observed using general spread plate techniques. For different potencies of each of these drugs, activities are different. Among these three drugs sulphur is found to be more active.
