Homeopathic Remedies For H1N1 Virus

    There is a general misconception about the H1N1 swine flu.  The misconception is that the swine flu kills people with a strong immune system.  This is totally false. People with a strong immune system are at a much lower risk than people with weak immune systems.  Homeopathic remedies help to trigger the body's own immune system to help fight of ailments such as swine flu quicker than if they had not taken anything at all. 

  Homeopathic remedies unlike allopathic medicine are individualized for most ailments.  Fortunately, colds and flus do not need to be individualized as much as compared to other illness and ailments. 

  Homeopathy was proved to be very effective in dealing with the last swine flu outbreak in 1918.  The homeopathy group had the lowest death rate during this outbreak. The following remedies were effective during the last swine flu outbreak.

  Gelsemium was the most commonly used homeopathic remedy during the last outbreak.  This remedy is to combat feeling chills from the swine flu.  The remedy also combats aches and pains associated with the swine flu.  The remedy should help the body recover quicker from the body aches and chills.  The person will feel really tired and may lay in their bed all day.  They may also experience head aches,a painful dry cough and sneezing with mucus discharge.  The person also has a lack of thirst.

  Aconite was used for milder and more acute flu symptoms.  The person may not necessarily experience the full burnt of the flu. They may experience some sneezing and a runny nose.  The flu seems to come on all of a sudden.  Children would be the best for this type of H1N1 remedy since they typically have milder symptoms of the H1N1.

  Baptisa is used when the flu is causing gastrointestinal problems.  This may be things such as diarrhoea stools and constant stomach aches.  Symptoms of the flu are still present but the gastrointestinal problems are creating the most issues.

   It is recommended to keep some Gelsemium handy during this swine flu season even if you get a vaccine.  The swine flu vaccine does not guarantee saftey.  Also, currently there is a huge shortage of swine flu vaccine so it is very unlikely that everyone will be able to obtain a swine flu vaccination.  Try the remedies to start in a 6X potency.  Take 3 to 5 pills three times a day.  You can take more medicine if you feel the flu is coming on strong.

  

  

        

       

Protecting Yourself From Swine Flu Outbreak with Homeopathy

  Swine Flu is actually a strand of a flu virus called H1N1.  This H1N1 is a mutation of the swine flu virus.  Pigs typically carry this strand of virus.  This virus generally will not kill pigs.  Humans rarely contract swine flu.  Swine flu can not be caught by eating pork products.  Swine flu is only contracted via air born.  The current strand (2009) is assumed to have started near Mexico city at a pig farm owned by a US company.  However, no pigs were have to been found in the H1N1 virus.  Closed areas are places were swine flu can spread rapidly.  Areas such as subways, buses, planes, office buildings are places where the H1N1 virus can spread since they are enclosed.   

  H1N1 virus effects people almost identically to the flu influenza.  People that may contacted the H1N1 virus experience fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.  Allopathic solutions for the swine flu outbreak include  Tamiflu (oseltamivir) or Relenza (zanamivir).  These drugs can potentially shorten the duration of the swine flu by a day.  The side effects of these drugs include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bronchitis, stomach pain, dizziness and headache.  Most people make a full recovery from H1N1 without the use of any drugs at all. 

  Oscillococcinum is a very popular homeopathic drug that is used to shorten the duration of the regular flu virus.  This drug has been proven in several trials to reduce the duration of the influenza virus by about 6 hours without any side effects.  However, this drug has never been tested on H1N1 virus.  Oscillococcinum also claims to prevent the flu but trials have shown no evidence of flu prevention with this drug.

 Homeopathy was used effectively in the Spanish flu outbreak in 1918.   The homeopathy mortatily rate was 1%.  This was much lower than the rate of death used with conventionally medicine.  The homeopathic remedies used to treat this flu outbreak were Byronia and Gelsemium.  Most cases used Gelsemiun to treat the spanish flu.  These remedies are also commonly used to treat the common flu.

  Contrary to popular belief, there is no vaccine for the H1N1.  There is really no way to prevent people from catching the swine flu other than avoiding contact with people that have caught the diesease.  You can boost up your immune system by taking vitamin C, beta carotein, vitamin D and antioxidants.  This help you better fight off the H1N1 virus.

  For healthy individuals with strong immune systems, the swine flu is really nothing to worry about.  Most people in the US that have contracted the swine flu have survived without any issues.  The common flu has killed far more people than the swine flu has.
