Homeopathic Remedies Against Flu
Homeopathy and conventional medicine have opposite approaches toward viral and bacterial infections. Namely, conventional medicine treats bacteria, because it considers them the main cause of bacterial infections. Medicine even does not have drug against the flu. It only knows antibiotics that are widely prescribed during the winter season, but do not know any medicine that can fight against flu. On the other hand, homeopathy does not think regarding single causes like a bacterium or virus. It rather takes care not only about microorganisms, but also about their environment that feeds them and enable their spreading throughout a body. That is why homeopathy is interested in improving immune system and healing the body naturally. Homeopathy sees our organism as capable of self-healing. It creates remedies that stimulate the body to heal itself and thoroughly remove the cause. For that reason, homeopathy is not focused on symptoms, except for gaining a better clue about the patient’s unique situation. Homeopathic remedies against flu are good for prevention. They have no side effects and can be consumed without medical diagnosis. Remedies are also highly effective in the acute phase. According to evidence, they had shown very useful in the past, when epidemic diseases had arisen.

During the flu season, more than 70 percent of people visit doctors because of flu. If we remind ourselves that conventional medicine does not have a proper solution for treating flu, except relieving symptoms such as running nose or high temperature, this percent seems odd. Homeopathy is focused more in humans than in disease. Instead of dividing the human body on its components, it treats people as complex systems, systems of emotions, thoughts, senses, and intuition. Instead of treating illness, homeopathy tries to heal the cause somewhere in our system – emotional, physical, psychological, energetic, etc. Therefore, by applying a homeopathic remedy, we will not get rid of one or more symptoms – we will heal the cause, improve immune system, and grow stronger and healthier.
