The Flu

The flu (or influenza) is a viral infection that causes body aches, fever, and fatigue. Some people also experience a sore throat, coughing, nausea and vomiting, or a runny nose. Often times, people become anxious or irritable or sensitive to their surroundings. Honing in on the symptoms that appear most strongly can help home prescribers select the most helpful homeopathic prescription.

What to Do

At the first sign of illness, carefully select your most prominent symptoms or those that bother you the most. This can include physical as well as emotional issues. Match those with a corresponding homeopathic medicine described below Take 2 pellets of a 30C potency four times daily for up to three days. Stop when symptoms go away. Start up again if they return. If you do not see a change within three days, if symptoms worsen, or if you cannot find a remedy that matches, then seek the care of an experienced professional homeopath (See directory) who can research the complete homeopathic materia medica (of several thousand homeopathic medicines) and design an effective treatment plan for you.
