Top 5 Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Flu

homeopathic medicines for fluDoes influenza or the so-called viral fever (flu) need to be taken seriously? Can it be fatal? Is homeopathy treatment effective in preventing and controlling these viral onslaughts? The answers to all these questions is “yes”.  Because influenza virus constantly changes itself, and because only a few changes can make a non-harmful virus highly lethal, Influenzas should be taken seriously

Homeopathy taken well within time can effectively control and even abort the onslaught by these viruses at the initial stages. It can provide a broad spectrum preventive cover for the not-affected ones. A recently introduced medicine, ANAS BARBARIAE, has shown extremely good results in treating influenza. Because of its effectiveness, in Europe and United States, it has become an over-the-counter drug. These medicines have an edge over treating viral infections. They charge up our immune system to fight these viruses. Prevention of viral infection is possible to a great extent through the cover may not be 100 percent, as viruses have this strange ability to auto-mutate (change their structures). Influenzinum (natural medicine ) is an effective prophylactic (preventive) medicine for influenza. The flu (influenza) differs in several ways from the common cold (a respiratory infection also caused by viruses). For example, people with cold rarely get a fever or a headache or suffer from the extreme exhaustion that flu viruses cause. If you have flu, you will have a sudden headache, dry cough, a runny nose, and a sore throat. Your muscles will ache and you will feel very tired. You can have a fever up to 104°F. Most people feel better in a couple of days, but the tiredness and cough can last two weeks or longer. Flu is an important disease because it can cause serious complications. Most people who get the flu get better within a week (although they may have a lingering cough and tire easily, for a while longer). For elderly people, newborn babies, and people with certain chronic illnesses, the flu, and its complications can at times  be life-threatening

The flu is spread or transmitted, when a person who has a flu cough, sneezes, or speaks and sends flu virus into the air, and other people inhale the virus. Influenza may, less often, be spread when a person touches a surface that has flu viruses on it — a door handle, for instance — and then touches his or her nose or mouth.
