As seen on the Dr. Oz show on Monday, homeopathy is a safe, nontoxic form of medicine that is gaining acceptance in the medical world because of its effectiveness, and the fact that it is subtle yet powerful medicine. He made some recommendations for great remedies we often use, and here are a few more remedies that you may find useful at home.
There is not ONE homeopathic remedy for the flu – there are several hundred remedies that could be the correct remedy to help you fight off a flu…which one you need depends on your own expression of symptoms.
So, if you have the flu and it has you feeling drowsy, dull and unable to concentrate, and literally so tired that it is hard to lift your head off the pillow or keep your eyes open, you need GELSEMIUM.
If you instead are more bothered by deep aching that reaches the bones and causes soreness while sitting down and restlessness so that you can’t get comfortable, feeling much worse in cold, wet weather, you are more likely to need EUPATORIUM.
If the pounding headaches are the worst symptom, you are irritable and can’t stand even the slightest motion…BRYONIA is your remedy of choice. When people need bryonia, they are incredibly thirsty and dry, and feel much worse in a hot room.
This is just an example of the way homeopaths approach conditions like the flu and choose a correct remedy that works for the individual and their unique symptoms.
Also, just wanted to let you all know that we know have a very experienced Naturopathic Doctor who practices homeopathy if you are confused and need help with figuring out which remedy will work best for you.
