I think it is important to let my readers hear a Homeopathic perspective on this so-called Swine Flu epidemic/pandemic. Whilst there is no doubt that this is a serious infection, the media is having a great time selling newspapers and in doing so causing alarm in the world about the likelihood or otherwise of catching this influenza. It is also clear from the current information that flu shots will not give you protection against this influenza strain and if you read Dr Mercola’s newsletter, may even do you harm.
Being fearful of getting infected and even expecting to get infected is a good way to encourage your immune system to be susceptible. Taking sensible precautions such as regular washing of hands when in public spaces and eating good nutrition and basically taking sensible steps to look after your immune system will ensure you are ready to face any infection that just might come your way.
Homeopathy treats influenza successfully and regularly. So if you get flu symptoms you can start on some appropriate homeopathics. If you are unsure what to take from the resources in my article referenced below in this post, your best bet will be Oscillococcinum 200 daily until symptoms are resolved. You can obtain this from ABC Homeopathy
If you really feel you need to take a preventative, there have been some encouraging clinical results with the Homeopathic medicine Influenzum 9C. You can obtain this from Dana Ullman in the USA or email me to source either of these medicines in Australia.
Here are two great resources for you so you can obtain information about the holistic approach:
