Homeopathic treatment for flu and colds

Good news for cold and flu sufferers. With homeopathy, you don’t have to delay treatment until you figure out whether those sniffles or that achy feeling is influenza or a common cold. get well teddy bears and balloons

Your homeopathic practitioner can begin treating your symptoms immediately. Instead of a one-size-fits-all treatment for the flu or a cold, homeopathic remedies are tailored to your specific symptoms, to strengthen your body’s response to infection. Possible homeopathic remedies include
Aconite for fever with apprehension
Arsenicum for clear, irritating, nasal discharge; vomiting and diarrhea
Baptisia for headache and soreness
Belladonna for headache and fever, with flushing and throbbing pain
Bryonia for aches, pain worse with motion, fever, and dry cough.
Eupatorium for aches and pains, weakness, fever with chills
Gelsemium for extreme tiredness, dullness
Mercurius for sore throat, alternating too hot and too cold, drooling.
Nux vomica for chills and diarrhea with nausea, and cramps
Phosphorus for congestion in the chest, chilly and yet thirsty for cold
Rhus tox for pain, worse in the beginning of movement, better with motion.

Other beneficial practices
• Consume plenty of liquids—broth, chicken soup, electrolyte drinks, fruit juice, herbal tea, hot water with lemon juice and honey, soda if vomiting, and, of course, water
• Take as much extra Vitamin C as your digestive system will tolerate
• Stay away from processed foods with extra sugar and carbohydrates and give your body and digestive system a chance to heal
• Rest
• Gargle with salt water
• Breath moist air from a steamy shower or a humidifier

If you are self-treating and your condition worsens significantly or does not improve in 3-5 days, seek medical help.
