N.B. Though not to preplace the advice of your medical professionals these would be additional preventives and treatments in the case of infection.
Following the successes I have had treating flu’s and Covid-19 infections using Homeopathy I suggest to my clients to have on hand some of the most common remedies whether you are vaccinated or not. Research has shown that there is a risk to everyone when infected. At the end of this article is a list of remedies to have as a first aid kit.
There is no one size fits all in the choice of a Homeopathic remedy as everyone’s symptoms and the nuanced characteristics of the symptoms are unique to each person, to the stage of illness and the individuals vitality. The list at the bottom of this page is designed to help choose a remedy based on those unique characterisics of the illness.
There is no reason not to take a remedy if you have it on hand, there is no down side and if after taking the remedy you need guidance there are thousands of Homeopath’s worldwide ready to help, myself included. Homeopathy buoys the immune response and a well-chosen remedy will have obvious effects. My hope is that the following information gives you a little support in thwarting a serious turn in any flu like illness be it influenza or Coronavirus.
Firstly, choosing a remedy can seem hard as they can all seem so similar. Read carefully and highlight those symptoms that seem applicable to your condition. Pay special attention to the aspects listed that make you feel better or worse. These are especially important in choosing a remedy. Look too at those aspects to help rule out the choice. Choose the remedy by re-reading those that have the most indications that match yours.
Secondly, take a dose of the remedy and wait. A good response is the ability to rest comfortably and even have a better sleep, appetite or just a bit more “get up and go”.
Don’t take it repeatedly. Wait till the benefit begins to wear off and then repeat. Like playing with a balloon you push it up to keep it afloat only when it sinks. Try a remedy only once or twice to know its effect. Avoid repeating if you felt worse even after only one dose.
Lastly, reach out to a professional for support on the management of dose, repetition and change of medicine. Change of symptoms can indicate a need to change the remedy, this is a common situation that needs careful thought.
LIST OF POSSIBLE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES
The common strengths of remedies in most Health stores and Pharmacies is 30CH. Best to have on hand 200CH but the remedy is more important than the strength itself. So, don’t worry the detail of the numbering just take the one you can get your hands on.
