  • I loved Sunday with Dr Saunders. He has so much insight and his lectures are so interesting.  I love how he presents his own case, then talks about physiology, pathology, pharmacology, medical terms, peppered with the materia medica and nutrition, and a bit of posology and philosophy.

This Winter’s Flu and Homeopathy

Homeopaths offer an alternative to the flu shot which has been clinically proven to be effective in the treatment of primary flu-related symptoms such as chills, muscle aches and fever. The homeopathic flu remedy is derived from the virus of the present flu circulating, minus the mercury and other toxic preservatives and bonding agents. Taken orally, each dose is a highly diluted form of the virus material alone, which triggers the body’s own defense mechanism to combat influenza. By not being injected directly into the blood stream, the oral remedy is processed through the mucous membranes, as it would be if the virus was contracted naturally.

No system of vaccination can provide a 100% guarantee of protection. However the homeopathic immunization is unique in being free of side effects, gentle and highly effective. It is safe for pregnant mothers, newborns, children and the elderly. Additionally, homeopathic remedies will work with prescription drugs and not interfere with the action of those drugs. Homeopathy is the fastest and most effective way to treat influenza. Homeopaths have been treating these viruses for over 200 years with great success.

It is possible that even the healthiest person can contract the flu if they are exposed during a time of high stress or a period when they are not eating as well as they should. Here are a few remedies to use to alleviate any flu symptoms and speed your recovery: Gelsemium – this remedy alone saved thousands of people from death in the mass influenza epidemic of 1918. At that time, many MD’s were homeopaths and their patients recovered when traditional therapies failed. The flu symptoms covered by Gelsemium include: dizziness, drowsiness, dullness, muscle pain, heavy head sensation and head “fullness”.

Chilly, irritable, restless and anxious? Arsenicum Album will help. It is an excellent remedy for vomiting and diaffhea at the same time.

Bryonia is useful if the flu has a slow onset, aching joints that are worse for movement, and a painful cough.

Eupatorium Perfoliatum is an effective remedy for the bone aches that often accompany flu. It is also effective for “flu” headache with pain in the eyes. 

Check with your homeopath and find truly successful ways to prevent and treat flu.
