Flu Notes for 2014/2015
This year’s flu is a doozie and it isn’t straightforward either … I have spoken to homeopaths and patients all over the country and different remedies are needed for different people at different stages of the illness in different parts of the country.
- Influenzinum 9C (single dose) once a week for 4 weeks then once a month (single dose) for the rest of the flu season
- Influenzinum 30C if in contact with someone who has the flu and/or
- Influenzinum 30C if flu symptoms develop – some homeopaths have people take it 2-4 times a day until symptoms resolve either on it’s own or alternating with the indicated acute remedy
- I have started alternating Influenzinum with the indicated remedy (at any stage during the flu including/especially the convalescent stage) and gotten much much better responses than with the remedy on its own.
Oscillococcinum (aka Coxiflu) can be taken instead of Influenzinum when symptoms first start. I suppose you could alternate it with Influenzinum (I never have done this but why not …)
Influenzinum 30C is available in the US from Amazon and in the UK from Helios Homeopathic Pharmacy: http://www.helios.co.uk
The article I wrote for Homeopathy Today in 2002 about The Flu is still good…it is packed with useful information about how to select and use the most common homeopathic remedies for the flu. This chart is particularly helpful.
